Today’s song is from the film Vijay-42 – a very obscure film. The film was made by National studios. It was directed by Mohan Sinha. Lyrics of all the 10 songs of the film were by Dr. Safdar Aah Sitapuri, which were composed by Anil Biswas.

Due to heavy losses and the general effects of the second world war, Sagar Movietone was in the red and it joined hands with Yusuf Fazal Bhoy (of RCA)’s company General Films to start a new venture ” National Studios “, in which even Tatas invested some money. National studios made a total of 16 films, before it was wound up. Chimanlal Desai of Sagar left after the first 3 films,namely Aurat, Pooja and Sanskar – all in 1940, and started his own Amar pictures.

The cast of film Vijay was Durga Khote, Harish, Husn Bano, Sankatha Prasad, Vaskar, Maya Devi, Ansari, Agha etc etc.

In our life, there are times when we think of ” Lucky and Unlucky”. Human nature, in general is such that it tends to consider certain things as Lucky for him. It can be people, place or even inanimate things. I have noticed that mostly those people whose livelihood revolves round their physical performance, say like Sports, Acting or other artists believe in Lucky-Unlucky most. There was that famous Cricketer who always entered the playing field with his right foot first. Another one put on his left shoe first. Everybody’s method of wooing the Luck factor is different.

A performance industry like Film Industry is not immune from this Lucky-Unlucky factor. Individual actors or MDs, Lead Pairs, Film Titles, Film stories etc have been labelled Unlucky unabashedly, by the industry. Let us see some examples…

Composer Daan Singh had 6 films in hand, but 4 remained incomplete and only 2 got released. Even his 2 Rajasthani films remained unfinished. He was promptly labelled Unlucky and had to go back to his native place. Kamal Rajasthani had the same story. Out of 9 films on hand, 7 were unfinished and only 2 C grade films were released. He too was called Unlucky.

Rajendra Kumar- Waheeda Rahman was an unlucky pair. Dalsukh Pancholi gave them lead roles in his film ‘Nirmala’. He died and the film was shelved half way. Film ‘Palki’-67 was under making, when its director S U Sunny died. The film was somehow competed but it flopped miserably. Then S S Vasan brought them together in film Shatranj-69. He died during the shootings and it was left incomplete. In film Dharti-70, this pair was in lead, but the director’s mother died on the sets and the film was left stranded. Is it a wonder, if the pair was called ‘Unlucky’ ?

Another Unlucky pair was Dev Anand- Meena Kumari. In film Sanam-51, Meena Kumatri was a side Heroine. From this film Dev-Suraiya pair separated for ever. Its director Nandlal Jaswantlal started his downfall and subsequently died later. The pair came again in films Tamasha and Baadbaan , made by the employees of Bombay Talkies. Both films flopped and Bombay Talkies closed down for ever. Another of their film “Kinare Kinare” was delayed for almost 10 years, finally releasing in 1963, but flopped to such an extent that its producer Nyay Sharma got heart attack due to high debts. No one dared to bring this pair again in any film !

Finally, the curious case of unlucky actor Gajanan Jagirdar. In 1941, Jagirdar worked in Prabhat’s film ” Padosi”. After this film , V. Shantaram and Jayashree left Prabhat. In 1944, Jagirdar directed and acted in and as “Ramshastri” for Prabhat. During the film shooting, Prabhat’s partner Vishnupant Damle expired and Prabhat became rudderless. Third time when Jagirdar went to Prabhat to act as and in ” Lokmanya Tilak”, Prabhat not only closed down but was also auctioned ! Jagirdar acted in film “Mahatma” in English, Hindi and Marathi in 1953 for Alhad Chitra’s Datta Dharmadhikari. Due to high debts, the company not only closed down, but the wife of Dharmadhikari had to cook and make Tiffins to survive ! Finally, when he acted in film ” Shahir Parshuram”-61, made by Mangal pictures, the company closed down and was sold out ! No wonder, in film circles, Jagirdar was typedcast as ” Unlucky ” !!

Why I remembered this Lucky-Unlucky matter was the title of today’s film – Vijay. The name Vijay has a special significance in film industry. When Amitabh Bachhan was going through a real bad patch in his career, he got the film “Zanjeer”-73, by chance and this film changed his life for ever and he never looked back. This hit film had Amitabh as Vijay in it as his name. Amitabh was so much enamoured with the name Vijay, that he started insisting that in every film his name should be Vijay – for luck. And sure enough, in films like Deewar, Hera Pheri, Trishul, Shahenshah, Agneepath (My name is Vijay Deenanath Chavan), Shaan, Shakti, Don, Dostana etc he was named Vijay and the films succeeded. Even in film Sholey, his name was Jay – a short form of Vijay, to pair with name Veeru !

According to one film site, Amitabh was named Vijay in as many as 20+ films from 1973 to 2000. Since finding name Vijay successful, many other actors too wanted this name and consequently, Jeetendra was Vijay in 18 films, Mithun Chakrawarty was Vijay in 16 films. Additionally Shashi Kapoor in 7, Shatrughna Sinha in 6, Raj Babbar in 6, Jacky Shroff in 5, Sunil Dutt in 4 films. Further Govinda, Rajesh khanna, Vinod Khanna etc also had Vijay name by choice in their films.

So much for the concept of Lucky – Unlucky !

Film Vijay-42 was directed by Mohan Sinha. Mohan Sinha was born on 2-12-1903 at Indore. He studied upto Matriculation in Indore. His uncle was General Bhavnani Singh, who was in the Indore state army. With his help, Mohan got in state army as a Lieutenant. However, he did not continue for long and left the army. In 1933, he started a film company at Indore-Navyug films. But due to lack of opportunities in Indore, it was closed soon.

Mohan came to Bombay, floated Krishna Films and made and directed a film ” Fashionable India”-35. It was a hit film and he got offers from Rajputana films,General Pictures, Circo and National. He worked with all of them. Sinha went to Calcutta and started Murli pictures. He made ” Swaraj ke sipahi”-37, which was a flop. He came back to Bombay and directed Industrial India-38, for General films. Then came Swastik-39, Laxmi-40,Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41. He floated Murari Pictures in 1942 and made Badlati Duniya-43 and Krishnarjuna yudha-45 ( This film was appreciated by Dr. Rajendra prasad, Dr. Shamaprasad Mukherji, Veer Savarkar and Acharya kriplani also)

In 1946, Mohan Sinha directed K L Saigal in Omar Khayyam, Surendra in 1857, Raj Kapoor in Dil ki Rani-47 and Dev Anand in Jeet-49. Mohan Sinha directed in all 32 films. He wrote lyrics for 62 songs in 7 films. His last film was Shaan E Hind-60. He died in 1984. Mohan Sinha’s granddaughter Vidya Sinha was an actress. Vidya’s mother was Mohan’s daughter and she died while giving birth to Vidya. From what I had read somewhere, Vidya’s father PRATAP RANA was so grief stricken that he refused to see his new born daughter and it was Mohan who brought her up and even named the little one after her Late mother VIDYA and gave her his own surname.

All the songs of film Vijay-42 were written by Dr.Safdar Aah Sitapuri. It was director Mehboob, who brought Safdar as a Lyricist for his film Aurat-40, made by National Studios. The composer was Anil Biswas. The pair of Anil Biswas and Safdar lasted for many films. In fact, Dr. Safdar wrote his last song for film Maan-54 for which Anil Biswas composed the music.

Dr. Safdar gave songs to many films of National Studios like, Asra, behan,Roshni, Roti, Vijay etc. His best known song was was the famous Mukesh song ‘ Dil jalta hai to jalne de” from Pehli Nazar-45. He wrote 197 songs for 28 films. He also tried his hand at directing 2 films, namely Bhookh-47 and Maan-54.

Today’s song is a very rare song. According to the uploader, our own Sadanand Kamath ji, it is probably the only song which used the word ” Dilchasp’ in the lyrics.

The song is very melodious and is a duet of Anil Biswas and Amar- an occasional singer. The real name of Amar was Nasir. He was from Punjab. He was born in 1920. After doing bit roles in some films,he got a major break in film Sanyasi-45,in which he sang 5 duets and 1 solo. His solo song,’ Tooti hui kashti’ became very popular.

In 1946,he was the Hero of film Bindiya, where Ragini ( who later migrated to Pakistan) was his Heroine. MD was Kamal Dasgupta, who gave him 3 songs.

Then he was Hero of Suraiya in Natak-47. He sang 1 duet with her and 2 solos. Later he did films like Maang, Lalaji, Vijay, Shukriya, Keemat etc. After 1950 he was doing character roles till 1970. He acted in total 89 films and sang 18 songs in 8 films. He died in 1980.

With this song, “Vijay”(1942) makes its debut in the blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 87 # Jeewan Sangraam-1974 #
————————————————————–——————-

Every year we celebrate our Republic Day on 26th January and Independence Day on 15th August.
This year we celebrated our our 70th Republic Day on 26th January (26.01.2019)and 73rd Independence Day on 15th august 2019.

Hearts of Indians are naturally filled with pride and enthusiasm on such occasions. It is also natural that we are reminded of the many ‘patriotic songs’ on these occasions- they could be from Hindi movies or non-film songs.

This year our Atul ji posted a very nice song and an appropriate article on the occasion. I enjoyed this song and, in the process, also browsed the blog for the other songs which I do remember whenever we celebrate our Independence Day and Republic Day. These songs always bring back those memories when I was a school going boy.

We used to get ready very early in the morning and after the flag hoisting at school and ‘prabhat-pheri’ up to the ‘gram panchayat’ school we again used to attend the flag hoisting ceremony at our colony club ground where the general function would take place for all employees (of the state electricity board) and their families. The distribution of sweets after the program was also a big attraction for us children then.

This time on both the occasions i.e. on Independence Day and Republic Day I could not send a song or a post from my side for the blog. But then I was thinking that is it necessary that we post patriotic songs on these two occasions only?
There are many other special occasions too where we have birth anniversaries and Remembrance Day of the leaders who lead the ‘freedom struggle’ and laid their lives for the freedom, even though they followed different thought process and different line of action to reach their goals.

Yesterday 28th September 2019 was the birth anniversary of one of the most loved martyrs of our country Bhagat Singh. And we remember him on his anniversary and paid our tributes as possible in our own ways.

We do always remember our ‘freedom struggle’ and the ‘hard earned freedom very much and ‘WE’ value it every day.
And may be in the history of our ‘freedom struggle’ it is possible that not a single day was without the fight and sacrifice by our countrymen.

Similarly, our armed forces guarding our borders have to fight every day to secure our borders and foil any attempt against our country by those who want to disturb peace in our country.

And even though we are busy with our daily routine our heart is always with our armed forces who are securing our borders and delivering their duties in the most difficult conditions and delivering their best in the many adverse conditions be it weather or other created circumstantial difficulties time to time, and many times sacrificing their lives whenever it is required so.

I remember one song from Marathi movies ‘sainik ho tumchaysaathi’ which is very close to my feelings that I have mentioned above and also those which I am unable to express in words. This song is just perfect to express those feelings.

(This is from the Marathi movie ‘Paahu Kiti Re Vaat-1963’, of which the lyrics are written by G.D. Madgulkar and it was composed by Datta Davjekar. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle)
The lyrics are in Marathi and are given with the YT link above, so I am not reproducing them here. I am also not trying to translate it because I feel I will not be able to do that perfectly, except the last three lines;

“रक्षिता तुम्ही स्वातंत्र्या प्राणांस घेउनी हाती
तुम्च्यास्तव आमुची लक्ष्मी तुम्च्यास्तव शेतीभाती
एकट्या शिपायासाठी झुरतात अंतरे कोटि”

You protect our freedom exposing your lives to danger
Our prosperity is because of you
Our livelihood (farms and crops) are because of you
Billions of hearts yearns/flounders for every soldier

And, why I am mentioning this above is that many times, I and may be all of us have to go through these feelings and even helplessly we cannot we do anything except reading in the news and expressing our solidarity with our forces whenever there are attacks or commotion on our borders, or other domestic problems where to control the situations our forces are deployed, and while doing so they have to sacrifice their lives…

But our soldiers who are there protecting us are braver then we think, just see this ‘tweet’(which was on tweeter recently) by an army Officer after one of our Officer was captivated by our neighboring country after the attacks on our CRPF Jawans in February this year , and we all were praying for his safe return …

“Dear Friends, things happen. It’s a War… don’t feel disheartened. Indian Armed Forces are capable to take on any mission! Cheer Up… Chin Up… Keep the josh HIGH Just stand UNITED and behind your soldiers, their families and veteran. They will NEVER EVER disappoint YOU Jai Hind”

***

So the spirit of our armed forces and people is always there to protect our country and fight for the country even if it requires of sacrificing of our lives.

Our love and concern for our motherland is always there. We are proud of our history, culture, heritage, and the stories of bravery and valor that will continue to inspire the coming generations.
And, if we have a movie on such historical incidence it has to be here on the blog and that is the reason for this post today.

Many of us (I consider people of my age here) may be remembering to have read about ‘Koma Gata Maru’ in the textbooks of history while in schools. (I am not aware if all those incidences of history which I read in my school days are still included in the today’s school curriculum).

Well, here is a brief about ‘Koma Gata Maru’…

Koma Gata Maru or S.S. Koma Gata Maru a Japanese steamship was hired by Gurudit Singh or Baba Gurdit Singh who was a businessman in Hong Kong.
It sailed on 04.04.1914 from Hong Kong to Coal Harbor, Vancouver and anchored there on 23.05.1914.
What inspired Gurudit Singh can be mentioned in this idea that “The visions of men are widened by travel and contacts with citizens of a free country will infuse a spirit of independence and foster yearnings for freedom in the minds of the emasculated subjects of alien rule”

The ship was to carrying around 346 passengers to Canada who want to immigrate there. However, the strict Canadian immigration laws doesn’t allow them to embark there and the ship was sailed back to Calcutta.
Gurdit Singh was aware of the discriminatory Canadian laws for the south Asians, however India under British rule then and Indians being a British subject he challenged the Canadian laws. The ship was hulled in the sea for almost two months and later on forcefully sailed back to India (on 23.07.1914) except twenty peoples were allowed to enter Canada. This incident has gone down as a shameful incident in the history of Canada.

When the ship sailed back to India and docked at the Budge Budge dockyard at Calcutta the Britishers who by now were known of the revolutionary intent of the people in the ship mostly Sikhs attacked them with Bullets and many people were killed in this incident while the leaders were successful to escape and enter India.

In India, the ‘Koma Gata Maru’ memorial was set up near Budge Budge, Calcutta in 1952 which was inaugurated by our first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru.
In 2014 government of India issued two special coins, INR 5 and INR 100, to mark the centenary of the Komagata Maru incident.

In Canada a monument in remembrance of the Komagata Maru incident was unveiled in July 23, 2012 near the steps of the seawall that lead up to the Vancouver Convention Centre West Building in Coal Harbour.
A stamp commemorating the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Komagata Maru was released by Canada Post on May 1, 2014.

(source of information – Wikipedia and many articles available in Canadian media, official website of Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Canadian Encyclopedia, Ottawa Citizen etc.)

Today’s movie ‘Jeewan Sangram-1974’ was made on this subject.

And how I became aware of this movie and its song also has story behind it.

I always vaguely remembered to have watched a movie with my Uncle in my childhood days titled ‘Sangram’ having actor Shashi Kapoor.
The other thing I vaguely remember which always keep me haunting with this movie name was Shashi Kapoor tied in ropes and many people surrounding him and he is trying to pull the ropes and fighting with them.

Over the years this image could not erase from my memory. And from the movie name which I had in my mind I imagine that the hero is struggling for something or may be his life has become a ‘Sangram’.

As I grow, I keep searching for this movie for many years. After coming into contact with this blog and getting more familiar to internet and continued searching, I finally came to know that the movie is not ‘Sangram’ but it is ‘Jeewan Sangram’.

Then I started looking for this movie or its songs. There was not a single song from this movie which was popular or which I remember to have listened to anywhere. Even I think this movie may not have been a successful movie of its time.

Well, as few years passed, I found one song available on YouTube which was picturised on Manmohan (and I was planning for an article on him …). Then one day I find this today’s song and listened to its one part (that time I think only one part was available) and then forgotten again.

Finally, months back when I checked this song again and realized that this song is a song praising our ‘mother land’ and love for the country, or this was a ‘patriotic song’ to put it straight.

Now coming to the image that I had in my mind since my childhood. Well I watched this movie online and there is no such scene in this movie, where Shashi Kapoor is tied with ropes.

However, there is one scene in the end of the movie where Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) himself come out and face bullets from all corners where the Police has already been waiting for him to surrender, but he embraces death to make people awake and thinking that his sacrifice will inspire people to fight the Britishers. (So, one can understand how deep impact this scene has on my impressionable mind then, and it kept haunting me all these years 🙂 )

**

As I watched this movie in parts and not at one go, I keep noting many things which I would like to share for information only.

The movie starts with the following offerings;

“The makers of this movie offer their homage to Baba Gurdit Singh whose courage and vision steered S.S. Koma Gata Maru back to Indian Shores.
Baba Sohan Singh Bhakna – Founder-President of the Ghadar Party (in California USA) – an undisputed leader of the early revolutionaries.
Kartar Singh Sarabha – Stormy petrel of the Indian Revolution. Fearless Fire-brand who was sentenced to death at the tender age of nineteen only.
And those thousands of others, who like the hero of our film, gave of their utmost to their motherland, but whom history has cruelly ignored…”

And that gives us an idea of the storyline of this movie.

The movie starts with 29th September 1914, Budge Budge dockyard Calcutta where the ship ‘S.S.Koma Gata Maru’ carrying Indians abroad reached from Canada, where entry to these peoples was denied.

After the titles we are introduced by the commentator …

“Door deshon se aaye huye ye wo kaumi parwaane hain, jo desh ke liye apna sab kuchh lutaakar Bharat ko aazaad karaane ke liye aaye
Duniya ki sabse badi sultanat ke khilaaf baghaawat ka jhanda lehraate huye, inn muthhi bhar janbaazon ne, jaise hi apne desh ki dharti par qadam rakhaa to inka swaagat … (goliyon se huaa)” …

The leader of these Baba Gurdit Singh Sandhu from Sarhali and other patriots were also involved in ‘Ghadar Party’ activities to fight with the British and make India free from Britishers.
Baba Gurdit Singh’s initial idea that “The visions of men are widened by travel and contacts with citizens of a free country will infuse a spirit of independence and foster yearnings for freedom in the minds of the emasculated subjects of alien rule” lead him to gather patriotic Indians from abroad whom he want to take to Canada, however entry to all of them was denied and they were sent back to Calcutta. Reaching Calcutta all these leaders and their associates were attacked by British resulting brutal killings of many and arrests of many, except Baba Gurdit Singh, Baba Nidhan Singh and Arjun Singh who fled away.
After this the main protagonist in the movie Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) with Baba Nidhan Singh and Sachin Sanyal continue the cause of Ghadar Party and preparations for the mutiny in ‘British Indian Army’ which is planned for 21st Feb’1915.
However British Police lured one of the activists who becomes informer for them and the mutiny is advanced for 19th Feb.
Here I would stop myself from detailing of what happens next 😊 the movie is available online and those who are interested to watch it may watch it at least once. (I watched it full once and then repeat for many parts during the preparation of this article.)

The tagline in the posters of this movie mentioned it as ‘The flaming story of a people’s revolt against tyranny’

I also like the dialogues in this movie and why not after all they are written by Gulzar and Qamar Jalalabadi.

“Marna bhala hai uska, jo apne liye jiye,
Jeeta hai wo, jo mar chuka hai desh ke liye”

Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) says this to Baba Nidhan Singh insisting him to allow to go to Calcutta to meet Sachin Sanyal instead of Baba Nidhan Singh going there and endangering his life.

The most interesting and introspecting dialogues are between Om Shivpuri and Shashi Kapoor.
As police gets the information and they start following Arjun Singh (Shashi Kapoor) from Calcutta in train and Arjun Singh after a scuffle and fight with them gets injured and jumped into a river and finally landing in the ‘khema’ where Om Shivpuri is the leader who has seen the 1857 revolution and how the infighting, treachery and back-stabbing among ourselves helped the British. He has lost all the hopes of people rising again to fight the British.

Ye ajeeb naashukaron ka desh hai beta
Ajeeb bujhdil hai yahaan ke log

Arjun Singh’s reply is;

Is desh ki haalat
In logon ki khudgarzi
Mujhse chhuppi nahin hai
Lekin ye khudgarzi, ye loot-khasot jab aakhri had ko pahunch jaati hai tabhi inquilaab ka waqt aata hai, aur aaj …aaj wo waqt aa gaya hai.

Seeing hope in Arjun Singh, Om Shivpuri extends support to Arjun Singh in the cause of ‘freedom’ …

Further story is how all these patriots fights the British till their end …

As I have mentioned above earlier, I thought this song was only one part, but then I find second part and when checked through HFGK Vol-V (1971-80) it mentioned this song as a ‘three part’ song.

Later on, I also found the video for the first part of this song. I am thankful to all the uploaders who have uploaded this movie and its songs on YouTube.

The ‘Koma Gata Maru’ incident in history took place on 29th September 1914 and today is 29th September 2019. One hundred and five years have passed to this incident.
But grateful nation always remembers its martyrs and all those known and unknown who have fought for the freedom of India.
Every small incident in our history of freedom struggle is a source of great inspiration for the coming generations, and all those stories of courage, valor and sacrifice needs to be passed on to them by every Indian in his lifetime.

Let us now listen to the today’s song in the special and unforgettable voice of Narendra Chanchal who has rendered it very soulfully …

With this today’s song “Jeewan Sangraam-1974” makes a debut on the blog!!

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

When one discusses songs sung by Lata, we mostly discuss all time classics, songs that have stood the test of time, songs that have become iconic etc. And there are hundreds of such songs.

Also, she was very particular about the kind of songs that she would sing. She would look down upon songs with lyrics that she found objectionable. Instead of facing her ire, music directors would often take the easy way out and get these songs sung by some other singer. And the major beneficiary was her own sister Asha Bhonsle. Most cabaret songs sung by shady female characters (often Helen, Bindu etc: ) in the movie went to Asha Bhonsle. On some occasions, some music directors who had the necessary connections with Lata ji (viz Laxmikant Pyarelal) managed to convince her to sing such songs. That is how we found her agreeing to sing a few cabaret songs for Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The “Inteqam”(1969) cabaret song Aa jaane jaan tere liye main aas lagaaye is a song that is normally the preserve of Asha Bhonsle, Lata has done an Asha Bhonsle in this song !

Likewise, when the “disco” craze began, which killed off the golden era of HFM for ever, it is rare to see her singing “disco” songs.

So it comes as a great surprise to everyone how she agreed to sing this “disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982). This movie was produced by F K Rattonse and Anwar Ali and directed by Ravi Tandon for Yokohoma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, amitabh Bachchan, , Vinod Mehra, Tanuja, Parveen Babi, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Mehmood, A K Hangal, Ramesh Dev, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raveendra Kapoor, Madhu Malini etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it and the songs were mostly of “Chaalu” kind as was the trend in those days. Our own Raja, even to this day, can be successfully trolled by reminding him that the song Angrezi mein kahte hain ki I love you wfrom this movie was the top hit song of Binaca Geetmala that year. 🙂

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birthday, here is a “Disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982).To this day, I have not been able to understand how Lata Mangeshkar agreed to sing this song ! But she sang this song alright. And this song is a party song too, fit to be covered on the occasion of her birthday.

The song is sung by Lata and Kishore Kumar. If Lata agreed to sing such a song, then Majrooh Sultanpuri agreed to pen a song like this ! Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan. He certainly must have been quite a persuasive person, who convinced Majrooh Sultanpuri and Lata to be associated with this song. 🙂

The song is picturised as a party song on Vinod Mehra, Kalpana Aiyyer and many others.

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Song-Na jaane kya hua jo toone chhoo liya(Dard)(1981) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Bikhraa hai kaajal fizaa mein
Bheegi bheegi hai shaamein
Boondon ki rimjhim se jaagi
Aag thhandi hawaa mein
Aajaa sanam
ye haseen aag ham
Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa
teri har saans mein
Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa

न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बनाके आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

बिखरा है काजल फिजा में
भीगी भीगी है शामें
बूंदों की रिमझिम से जागी
आग ठंडी हवा में
आजा सनम
ये हसीं आग हम
ले दिल में बसा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

आँचल कहाँ
मैं कहाँ हूँ
ये मुझे होश क्या है
ये बेखुदी तूने दी है
प्यार का ये नशा है
सुन ले ज़रा
साज़ ए दिल गा रहा
है नगमा तेरा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

कलियों की ये सेज महके
रात जागे मिलन की
खो जाएँ धड़कन में तेरी
धडकने मेरे मन की
आ पास आ
तेरी हर सांस में
मैं जाऊं समा
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया
खिला गुलाब की तरह
मेरा बदन
निखर निखर गयी
संवर संवर गयी
बना के आइना तुझे अय जानेमन
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ
न जाने क्या हुआ
जो तूने छू लिया आ

“Coffee House”(1957) was produced and directed by Hari Walia for Niti Arts Productions, Bombay. This movie, whose prints are lost had Geeta Bali, Shammi Kapoor, Vijaylaxmi, Jeevan, Bhagwan, Chanchal, Kumud Tripathi, Pal Sharma, Raja Kapoor, Helen etc in it.

Two songs from this movie has been discussed in the past. Here is the tird song from “Coffee House”(1957) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan, as mentioned earlier.

From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a club dance song/ cabarat dance song.

Only the audio of this song is available. The prints of this movie are lost. It was a fond wish to Shammi Kapoor to be able to watch this movie seeing that it also starred Geeta Bali who would later become his wife.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Ye hawa ye fizaa ye samaa (Coffee House)(1957) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 47
——————————————————————————————

When one discussed a movie of 1940s, one often assums by default that it must be a “boring” movie, one which may not hold the interest of later generation movie goers. And when one finds that this movie has Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis in lead roles, people who have seen them in character roles may consider dropping the idea of watching the movie.

But what if I tell you that this movie from 1941 is a laugh riot ? And that this movie was the original inspiration of “Padosan”(1968) ? I am sure that people will suddenly get interested in knowing more about this movie.

“Jhoola”(1941) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. This movie, a “social” movie had Leela Chitnis, Ahok Kumar, Shah Nawaz, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Karuna Devi, Shahzadi, Rajkumari Shukla, Meenu Cooper, M A Aziz, Kaazi, Master Laxman, Leeladhar Sharma, Iqbal Bai, B M Dixit, Jyoti, Dulaari, Nana Palsikar etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past. This movie has a song that goes Ek chatur naar karkar singaar . Yes, I mentioned that this movie is the original source for “Padosan”(1968) and this song is the inspiration of that famous “Padosan”(1968) Kishore Kumar Manna dey laugh riot.

If “Padosan”(1968) had Mehmood then “Jhoola”(1941) had his father Mumtaz Ali lip syncing the wonderful stage dance song Main to Dilli se dulhan laayaa re.

“Jhoola”(1941) had made its debut in the blog on 26 september 2009, viz exactly ten years ago, with the evergreen song Chali re chali re meri naao chali re .

This day that year ten years ago, the blog was at its usual prolific best. Six songs from six different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Five out of six of those movies have already been covered in the blog. “Jhoola”(1941) remains the only un YIPPEED movie from that day.

Here are the details of the songs that were discussed on 26 september 2009:

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Tera mujhse hai pahle ka naata koi Aa Gale Lag Jaa-1973 All Songs covered in the blog
Har aas ashqbaar hai Kinaare Kinaare-1963 All Songs covered in the blog
Dekha naa jaaye socha naa jaaye Mr India-1961 All Songs covered in the blog
Kahaan chhod ke chalaa hai tu Anjaan-1956 All Songs covered in the blog
De bhi chuke ham dil nazraana dil kaa Jaal-1952 All Songs covered in the blog
Chali re chali meri naao chali re Jhoola-1941 05 of 11 songs covered

According to HFGK, the movie had 12 songs. I find that the song Ek chatur naar karkar singaar does not find mention if HFGK. To compensate for that, the song under discussion today gets mentionc twice (as song number 6 and 11). So the count of songs in the movie remains accurate, viz 12.

Today, as part of Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from “Jhoola”(1941). Like the song that was covered ten years ago, this song too is a duet sung by Ashok Kumar and Leela Chitnis. In the song ten years ago, the leading duo were riding a boat, here they ride a ghodagaadi, and while doing so, Ashok Kumar makes gentle 1940s style passes on Leela Chitnis, asking the love letter back. Leela Chitnis teases him back 1940s style responds 1940s style viz.

Dekho kah doongi
Haan haan dekho kah doongi
Tumhaare man ki batiyaan

and subsequently

Hamri gali mein dekho
Tum kal se aana chhodo
Varna hansengi hamaari sakhiyaan

The lyrics by Kavi Pradeep are quite cute and romantic. The romantic song, in which both make paasses at each other must have been quite a rage in those pre independence days.

Music is composed by Saraswati Devi.

Tumhaare man ki batiyaan
Dekho kah doongi
Tumhaare man ki batiyaan

तुम्हारे मन की बतियाँ

This is my 800th post on this Blog ! Simply unbelievable !! Seems like, I had just started writing about old films yesterday only !!!

When I look back on my journey of last few years, I see me, learning operating computers at the age of 71 years and then start writing posts from the 72nd year. In last 7 years, almost precisely, I wrote more than 800 articles on various Blogs and sites and even published one book ! Can all this be true ? God has been very kind to me, I would say.

The credit for my 800 posts here, goes to Atul ji, who was the one who motivated me to start writing. He is not very expressive in these matters, but his constant encouragement, help and facilitation in various ways, kept up my enthusiasm in writing. Our own Sudhir ji has also been very helpful consistently. Initially, my speed of posting articles was very noteworthy. Later on it slowed down. The reasons were many.

One reason was, as the time went by, besides increase in the contributors, many available songs were getting posted and so to get a song of choice for writing was becoming difficult. Initially the field was open, but as the songs’ availability decreased, the speed of posting also slowed down. It is certainly not because the ‘ contents have dried up ‘ . There is still so much to write about and the scope is still very wide enough to last for a long time.

Here are the details of my centuries:

I thank all my well wishers and those who commented on the posts to convey their appreciations. That actually motivated me further to continue writing.

Today’s song is from film Paraya Dhan-43. this was a bilingual film in Hindi and Bangla (Bichar-43), directed by Nitin Bose.

After a spat with B N Sircar, Nitin Bose came to Bombay with his group of artistes. He had a contract with Chunnibhai Desai’s ” Shree Films” for 3 films. This Chunnibhai was the elder brother of Chimanlal Desai of Sagar Movietone (later of National studios and then Amar Pictures). His first film was a Bilingual in Bangle/Hindi- Paraya Dhan-1943. This was a flop. Then came ‘Mujrim’-44. This too was a flop. the third film was ‘Mazdoor’-45. For this film, Nitin Bose had advertised for a Hero. One day, 4 candidates were interviewed. First was Dev Anand, second was Rehman, third was Chetan Anand and the fourth was Nasir Khan. Nitin Bose rejected the first 3 and selected Dilip kumar’s brother Nasir Khan. Most unfortunately,this film also became a flop. Luckily,he was invited by Bombay Talkies to make a film in Bangla/Hindi,based on Tagore’s story ‘Nauka Doobi’. Hindi version was ‘Milan’,with Dilip Kumar and Meera Mishra and Ranjana etc. This film was a Hit and Nitin Bose firmed up his position in Bombay.

Film Paraya Dhan had music by Pt. Gyan Prakash Ghosh. While shifting from Calcutta to Bombay, Nitin Bose had brought few people with him. Pt. Ghosh was also one of them. He was a very big and highly respected name in Bengal. While in Bombay he gave music to 2 Hindi films, namely Paraya Dhan-43 and Mujrim-44, both directed by Nitin Bose. Unfortunately, both the films proved flops and Gyan Prakash Ghosh returned to Calcutta. He had done a small role in film Mujrim-44 also. Not much is known about Pt. Ghosh, outside of Bengal, so here is some information about him.

Jnan Prakash Ghosh (8 May 1909 – 18 February 1997) often known as ‘Guru’ Jnan Prakash Ghosh was an Indian harmonium and tabla player from Farukhabad gharana of Hindustani classical music and musicologist.

Born in a Hindu family with musical background in Kolkata. He was the grandson of Dwarkanath Ghosh (1847–1928), who founded Dwarkin in 1875 and invented the “Dwarkin harmonium”, popular in West Bengal, India. He graduated from the Scottish Church College of the University of Calcutta. He was keen in sports (he played soccer, hockey, polo and billiards). He also practised painting, but had to discontinue these due to an eye injury in a soccer match.
Then he turned to music. He was trained in vocals by Girija Shankar, Mohammed Sagir Khan and Mohammed Dabir Khan. He took tabla lessons from Ustad Masit Khan of the Farukhabad gharana and became his senior disciple and later from Ustad Feroze Khan of the Punjab gharana.

He worked for 15 years in All India Radio as a producer of music. He wrote pieces in classical music, light music, modern, orchestral, choral, and percussion styles.

He was the founder of Sourav Academy of Music and closely associated with the ‘Sangeet Research Academy’. He scored music for many Bengali films, Jadubhatta, Andhare Alo and Rajlakshmi o Srikanta (1958) are worth mentioning. One of his compositions was called Chaturang – involving tabla, pakhawaj, kathak and tarana. He would instruct disciples staying with him to practice late into the evenings and it is said that he would correct any errors that reached his ears.

He also gave music to 2 Hindi films,namely Paraya Dhan-43 and Mujrim-44. Both were directed by Nitin Bose, who had shifted to Bombay after his spat with New Theatres.

Amongst his notable students are tabla players Kanai Dutta, Shyamal Bose, Shankar Ghosh, Abhijit Banerjee, Anindo Chatterjee, and Nikhil Ghosh, Rajkumar Misra, singers Prasun Banerjee, Ajoy Chakrabarty, Suman Ghosh and Arun Bhaduri and instrumentalist Paul Grant. His birth centenary was celebrated on 7 May 2012, in Kolkata, with screening of documentary of him and performances by noted singers.

In 1974, he was awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Fellowship the highest honour conferred by the Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s National Academy of Music, Dance & Drama. This was followed by the Padma Bhushan in 1984, given by the Government of India.(adapted from wiki, with thanks.)

The cast of the film was Leela Desai, Balwant Singh, Radha Rani, Maya Banerji, Sunalini Devi, Jagdish Sethi, Rajkumari Shukla, Baby Madhuri (Madhubala), Krishnakant – for whom this was his Debut film, and many others.

Today’s song is rather unique, in the sense that the singer is the most unexpected – Deena Sanghvi….she is none other than the famous and popular character artiste of Hindi films, Deena Pathak. Deena did not act in this film, but sang 1 solo and 1 duet. This is the only time she ever sang in Hindi films. That way, this is a rare song. Harish Raghuwanshi ji has confirmed that Deena Sanghvi and Deena Pathak are same. Before marriage she was Deena Gandhi. Her 2 sisters are Shanta Gandhi and Tarla Mehta. Deena’s first husband was Ramesh Sanghvi, but they separated soon. Later she married Baldev Pathak. They have 2 daughters.

Dina Pathak (née Gandhi; 4 March 1922 – 11 October 2002) was an Indian actor and director of Gujarati theatre and also a film actor. She also was an activist and remained the President of the “National Federation of Indian Women” (NIFW).

A doyenne of Hindi and Gujarati films as well as theatre, Dina Pathak acted in over 120 films in a career spanning over six decades. Her production Mena Gurjari in Bhavai folk theatre style, ran successfully for many years, and is now a part of its repertoire.

She is best known for her memorable roles in the Hindi films Gol Maal and Khubsoorat. She was a favourite of the Art Cinema in India where she played powerful roles in films like Koshish, Umrao Jaan, Mirch Masala and Mohan Joshi Hazir Ho!.

Her notable Gujarati films were Moti Ba, Malela Jeev and Bhavni Bhavai, while her well-known plays include Dinglegar, Doll’s House, Vijan Sheni and Girish Karnad’s Hayavadana, directed by Satyadev Dubey.

Dina Pathak was born in Amreli, Gujarat on 4 March 1922. She was enamoured of fashion and films, and while a teenager, started acting in plays and won acclaim from critics. She attended and graduated from a college affiliated to the University of Bombay (Mumbai). Rasiklal Parikh trained her in acting while Shanti Bardhan taught her dancing.

At a young age, she joined the Indian National Theatre as an actress. She became known for her student activism, where Bhavai theatre, a folk theatre form from Gujarat, was used extensively to create awareness about the British rule, in the pre-independence era; this led to her close association with Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA), along with her elder sister Shanta Gandhi and younger sister Tarla Mehta; while in Mumbai, she had an important hand in reviving the Gujarati theatre there, along with fellow Gujarati actors like Kailash Pandya and Damini Mehta.

At age 44, she made a comeback into films, with Basu Bhattacharya’s Uski Kahani (1966), for which she won the Bengal Journalists Association Award. She made four films in the 1960s, including Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s classic Satyakam (1969), Saat Hindustani (1969), starring Amitabh Bachchan in his debut role and the Merchant Ivory Productions, The Guru (1969). By the 1970s, she had become a favourite of art and commercial films alike, playing powerful motherly and grandmotherly roles. It was in these films that she became recognised as the Grand-Old-Mother of Hindi films.

Films that stand out in this era are Gulzar’s Mausam (1975), Kinara (1977) and Kitaab (1977), and sweet comedies like Basu Chatterjee’s Chitchor (1976), Gharaonda (1977) and also in an art cinema classic, Shyam Benegal’s Bhumika (1977), which saw her standing tall alongside another acting legend, Smita Patil, in her career’s best performance.

Just as the 1970s ended, she was seen in the comedy classic, Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Gol Maal (1979), where she essayed the role of Kamala Shrivastava, a middle-aged woman who sportingly plays mother to Amol Palekar, who went on to direct her in his 1985 film, Ankahee. The next decade began with another career best, as a stern disciplinarian matriarch in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Khoobsurat in (1980), closely followed by Bhavni Bhavai (1980). In 1980, she was also awarded the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award. In all, she acted in 150 Hindi films.

Her first marriage was with Ramesh Sanghvi, but they separated soon. It was at this stage , she sang two songs in her first Hindi film Paraya Dhan-43, as Dina Sanghvi. Later she married Baldev Pathak and had two daughters, actresses Supriya Pathak (b. 1961) and Ratna Pathak (b. 1957 ). She completed her last film, Pinjar (2003), but died before its release, of heart attack, following a prolonged illness, on 11 October 2002 in Bandra, Bombay. (adapted from wiki, with thanks.)

Today’s song is very melodious. It is less than 3 minutes long. The duet is sung by Deena Sanghvi and Balwant Singh, with chorus. With this song, Music Director Gyan prakash Ghosh, singer Deena Sanghvi and film Paraya Dhan-43 make their Debut on the Blog.

(I thank shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for providing me a Gujarati article on Deena Pathak and for confirming that Deena Sanghvi and Deena Pathak are same ).

Today’s song is from film Pyas-41.

The film was made by Murli Movietone. It was directed by Ram Daryani. The lyricist was D N Madhok and the music was by Khemchand Prakash. The cast of the film was Snehprabha Pradhan, Ishwarlal, Nazir, Shamim, Gope, E Bilimoria, Sharifa, Gulab, Khatoon, Majid, Tarabai etc etc. There were 9 songs in the film. One song is already discussed, so today, it will be the second song of the film here. It is a duet sung by the lead pair Snehprabha and Ishwarlal.

Various communities of India contributed to the development of Indian Film Industry. No wonder, we never saw communal feelings in the film world. It is probably the only industry in India, which is truly a Secular one.All communities and religions live here happily together. Every community is, however, identified with a particular state, i.g. Sikhs and Punjabis from Punjab, Bengalis from Bengal, Marathis from Maharashtra etc etc. But there is one community which has no state of its own, still it has been contributing to almost every industry in India whole heartedly. That is SINDHI community.

In film industry too, their contribution is almost in every department – be it production, direction, acting, music or any other form of film making, for that matter. Generally, they are a business community and are highly adaptable to available circumstances. Right from Vithal Panchotia in the early 30s to Ranvir singh Bhavnani in the 2019, their presence as actors, Producers (Sippys), Directors (Mohan Bhavnani), Music composers (Bulo C Rani) to Comedian (Bhudo Advani) is felt in all decades. Brij Rani, Sheila Ramani, Sadhana, Babita and Kitu Gidwani or Gope, Bhudo Advani, Sushil Kumar, Asrani etc are some of the names that come to the mind off hand.

Film Pyas-41 was also directed by one Sindhi – Ram Daryani ( Ram Kamlani was different, he was brother of Gope). Ram Daryani was born on 6-12-1915, at Hyderabad, Sindh Province (now in Pakistan). His early education was done in Sindh and for college education he came to Karachi. Due to intense desire of being in film world, he left studies and joined Eastern Art Production and assisted Moti Gidwani in direction of film Insan ya Shaitan-33. But due to family pressure he had to rejoin college. After some time he again left college for good and started working as assistant director for films Prem Pariksha-34 with G R Sethi, Bharat ki Beti-35 with Premankur Attorthy and Yasmin-35 with H K Shivdasani.

He got his first chance to independently direct the film Baal Hatya aka Khoon E Nahak-35. In the year 1936, he floated his own company Daryani productions and directed films like Sangdil Samaj-36, Prem Murty-36 and Gentleman Daaku-37, for which his brother K S Daryani wrote the stories. In 1938, brother K S Daryani started Krishna Movietone. Ram Daryani closed his company Daryani productions and directed film Zamana-38 for krishna Movietone. The film became a Hit and his name became famous.

He worked for Murli Movietone to direct films like Pyas-41, which celebrated Silver jubilee. His other films were Qurbani-43, Preet-45, Panna Dai-45 and Shravan kumar-46. In all, Ram Daryani directed 23 films. His last film was Chand mere aaja-60. After this he entered Film Distribution business. Ram Daryani died on 7-9-1993. ( adapted from Filmdom-1946).

The Heroine for film Pyas-41 was Snehprabha Pradhan, who was an excellent actress and a good singer. However, she acted in only 17 films in 10 years i.e. 1940 to 1950. After films, she started acting in Marathi dramas and became famous and popular there.

SNEHPRABHA PRADHAN was born on 20-10-1915 in Nagpur,Maharashtra. Her father was Vithalrao and mother was Tarabai.Tarabai was a child widow who grew up in an orphanage and SP’s father married her as a social cause,when he was already 50 yr old.

Like her contemporaries, Shanta Apte and Hansa Wadkar(Ratan Salgaonkar in real life), she too travelled a lot in her first 10 years,to places like Nagpur,Bombay,Poona,Delhi,Calcutta,Lahore etc.

When her father left them and mother was unable to support the family,SP had to seek work.She did small roles in films.One Chimanbahi Desai of Bombay Talkies was a family friend.Through him, she worked and sang in Civil marriage,saubhagya and Sajni.
Her first break as a Heroine came with Punarmilan-1940,opposite Kishore Sahu.They fell in love and married,but within an year she divorced him on grounds of his impotency !

SP was studying,while working too and she became the First woman Graduate from Ferguson college,Poona,in those days !
Even though system was there,still SP was NOT attached to any Studio nor was she on rolls of any Production company.She virtually started the ‘Free Lance working system’ in those days.

She worked in Bombay Talkies,New theatres,with K.A.Abbas,Roop k.Sorey etc.She sang songs with Pahadi Sanyal also.
In the late 40s,she reduced her work in Hindi,as she was more inclined to work on Marathi stage dramas.In 1942 she worked in Marathi film “PAHLI MANGALAGAUR”,in which 10 year old Lata Mangeshkar acted and sang First time in her career. In 1946 SP she acted in Salgirah and sang 6 songs.After this she did “Anmol Moti” in 1949.Then she stopped working in Hindi films. She wrote Screenplay of film “Ladai ke baad”-1943,acted in it and also sang 9 songs in it.

Her name was kept Snehprabha,as a compromise,since her mother could not decide in 2 names-Snehlata or Prabhavati.So the names were combined as Snehprabha. She married Dr.Shirodkar and settled in Bombay,occasionally doing some stage dramas in Marathi. She died on 7-12-1993.

Birha ki Raat-1950. She acted in this film as Dev Anand had expressed his desire to act in a film in which SP was there. Dev Anand was her great fan.He agreed to work with Nargis only on the condition that SP would work with him. Snehprabha Pradhan could not refuse Dev Anand.

There is another name ‘ Khatun ‘ in the cast. Miss Khatun Bano was born and brought up in a poor Muslim family of Lahore. As per the family tradition, she learnt dancing and singing. once, when she was performing on stage in Lahore, the Talent hunter of Sagar movietone spotted her and she was offered a role in a Talkie film- which was a novelty in 1931. Her first film was Abul Hasan-31. Then came Subhadra haran-32, Meerabai-32, Maya Bazar-32 etc etc. In all, she acted in 59 films, till her last film Ibrat-60. She also sang 25 songs in 12 films.

One more interesting actress in the cast was Tarabai. She is none other than the elder sister of famous dancer actress Sitara Devi. Born in 1905, she was a good dancer. She started film career from Silent films like Malti Madhav, Bambai ki sethani etc. She started Talkie films with Vasantsena-31. She played the role of Princess Octavia in film Yahudi ki Ladki-33, along with K L Saigal.

She acted in many films like Shehar ka jadu-34, Savitri 37, Narsi Bhagat-40, Sasural -41. She acted in film Haiwaan-40, along with her two other actress sisters,namely Alaknanda and Sitara Devi. This may be the only Hindi film, in which 3 sisters played roles in one film.

She married co star Marutirao Pehelwan, left films and they settled in Dhule,in Maharashtra. They started a Dairy business. Their son was the famous dancer Gopi Krishna. After husband’s death and winding up of the Dairy business, Tarabai returned to Bombay and started working in films. But now she was reduced to as Junior Artiste (Extra) and got only negligible roles. She lived in Bandra slum. There is no information about her after this.

Film Pyas-41 was a very successful film. It was written by K S Daryani- brother of director Ram Daryani. The film was shot in Ranjit studio. This was the first film of Murli Movietone. The March 1942 issue of Film India magazine reviewed the film and Baburao Patel, for once , was all praise for the film, direction and the acting. The film was released in Imperial Cinema, Bombay on 14-2-1942. While praising the acting of Snehprabha Pradhan, Baburao Patel could not resist the temptation of subtly commenting on her looks, saying, ” she was photographed so nicely that she sometimes looked ‘almost’ beautiful” ! That’s Baburao for you !!.

The story of the film as given in the review is…….

Sethji’s (Nazir) wife is dying due to TB…according to the evil family doctor (E. Billimoria), who wants to marry his niece( Gulab) to Seth ji. He also tries to kill wife and her child. Sensing this, the wife, Menaka (Sharifa) runs away with the child. She hands over the child to a village mukhiya and dies. Seth ji marries the niece of doctor, who starts extracting money from her.

The child grows into a big man-Chiman (Ishwarlal) who loves village belle Radha.

Once Chiman goes to the city and gets to know Seth ji, who employs him. Seth ji’s niece Rupa starts loving him. Once by accident , Chiman comes to know that he is Seth ji’s son. Seth ji is happy and throws a party in which the engagement of Rupa (Shamim) is announced. Chiman is craving for Radha. Radha comes to know these matters and comes to city. Rupa realises their true love and sacrifices. Chiman and Radha unite.

Today’s song’s mukhada is ” Nadi kinara ho “. This “Nadi kinara” was very popular amongst the lyricists of the 30s and 40s, because I found so many songs having this beginning of songs, till even the 50s. Somehow this went on diminishing later. I guess the lovers stopped going to the Rivers or may be they preferred a Mall or a Multiplex than going to the ‘Nadi kinara’, battling the traffic jams !

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 46
——————————————————————————————

Today I present a song from the 1974 movie ‘Aarop’. (Yes! the year of this movie needs to be corrected as ‘1974’. It was passed by Censor Board on 16.01.1974).

“Aarop-1974” is one of the two movies which are falling under ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ today on 23.09.2019. The other movie is ‘Fashion-1957’.

As many as six movies were represented on the blog with their songs ten years back on the blog viz on 23.09.2009. Their details as well as the present status of the movies that these songs were from are as under :

Song Movie title-Year Remarks

“Aarop-1974” was directed by Atmaram for ‘Gurudutt Films Combine, Bombay’. Atmaram (Guru Dutt’s brother) also wrote the story and screenplay of this movie.

It had Saira Banu, Vinod Khanna, Vinod Mehra, Rehman, Bindu, Bharat Bhushan, Keshto Mukherji, Paintal, Gulshan Arora, Kundan, Savita, Manik, Murad, Krishnakant, Jankidas, Rajan Haksar, Maruti, Viju Khote, Pardesi, Bhagwan, Sabina, Chandu, Mohan Choti and Johny Walker.
Lily Chakravarti, Rajesh Behl, Raj Mehra makes a ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

Y.G. Chavhan was the editor for this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Vrajendra Gaud. Govind Singh was the Chief Assistant Director and Ram Govind was the assistant in screenplay.

For me I was familiar with only one song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ . Later on, when I started collecting cassettes, I was looking for this song and then I got to know the name of the movie this song was from. But I think this song was not easily available then.

After many years I came to know about the music composer of this movie and it was Bhupen Hazarika. Earlier I thought that it was composed by the duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

This movie had as many as eight songs in it. Though HFGK mentioned it as having seven songs- including one two-part song.
But, during the preparation for this article I watched this movie which is available online and I think out of the three Manna Dey solo songs two may have been excluded from the movie, or either they have been edited from the version of the movie available online.
(I think correction is also required in HFGK movie page of this movie ‘Aarop-1974’ as the sequence of the songs is not as per their appearance in the movie).

Lyrics for all the songs in this movie were written by Maya Govind. As mentioned above music of this movie was composed by Bhupen Hazarika.
The titles of the movie mentioned that the Bhajans in this movie are based on the tunes of the devotional songs of Saint Kavi Shankar Dev from Assam.

One can experience that essence (or in my words ‘mere desh ki mitti ki khushboo’) in the song being presented today.

Asha Bhonsle (two solo songs), Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar (one duet song only and they most popular from this movie), Laxmi Shankar (one solo), Bhupen Hazarika and K.N. Sharma (one song together) and Manna Dey (three solo songs) gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Out of the eight songs from this movie four songs have already been posted on the blog. From the remaining songs I had option of two Manna Da songs (they are available combined in one link online), one song by Asha Bhonsle (which again is picturized on Bindu, this time a mujra song and ten years back already a cabaret song picturized on Bindu was posted on the same day), and one song sung by Bhupen Hazarika and K.N.Sharma.

When I saw that there is a song having Bhupen Hazarika’s voice and still to be posted I selected this for they presentation today. The video for this song was already available and I came to know that this is not a full video of the song, but partial video only, when I tried to locate the audio/video of other pending songs from this movie. I find that the full audio song was available.
I think today’s song must be the first song in Hindi movies which was sung by Bhupen Hazarika.

On screen it is lip synced by Bharat Bhushan while the ‘shlokas’ from Bhagwat Geeta are played in the background. Saira Banu is also present during this song which is picturized in a temple where Bharat Bhushan is the priest.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie earlier and I watched it during the preparation of this article. I must say that the movie is an interesting movie to watch and all the characters shown and the artists performing them seems perfectly fit into it.
(I am avoiding to mention about the story line of the movie to keep intact the interest of those who may want to watch it).
The overall presentation is a balanced one and the movie keeps us engaged till the end.

Its songs are also good, but I think only the song ‘nainon mein darpan hai, darpan mein koyi’ was popular and that song was frequently played at that time on radio. I must have heard it earlier and but watching it now and listening to it again and again was enjoying.

Dialogues of the movie are also very nice and go well with the storyline of the movie and the fight between ‘virtuous’ and the ‘evil’.
I am not aware how this movie fared at the box-office then.

Let us now enjoy today’s song, which grows on us if we listen to it a few times.

हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
जय यशोदानंदन
मेरी लाज राखो प्रभु
मैं तो तेरी शरण
हे यशोदानंदन
मुझे आज लागे जीवन जैसे मरण
हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
जय यशोदानंदन

यदा यदा हि धर्मस्य
ग्लानिर्भवति भारत
अभ्युत्थान मधर्मस्य
तदात्मानं सृजाम्यहम्

जब जब धर्म डूबा
तुम दौड़े आये
हे यशोदानंदन
सागर में नैय्या मेरी
लो डूबी जाए
हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
जय यशोदानंदन

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते
मा फलेषु कदाचन
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भुर्मा
ते संगोऽस्त्वकर्मणि

है कर्म अपने वश में
जीवन परीक्षा
हे यशोदानंदन
अब तो जो हो तू जाने
सब तेरी इच्छा
हे यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
जय यशोदानंदन

हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
हे जय यशोदानंदन
हे मोहन श्याम
