15 August 1975 saw the release of a movie that went on to become an all time surprise hit. No, I am not talking about “Sholay”(1975) which was released on that date. “Sholay”(1975) was a big budget multistarrer movie and it was expected to do well at the box office, at least by the makers of the movie, if not the trade pundits.

Another movie was released on 15 august 1975. It was a low key release in a few movie halls. This movie was expected to do a modest business and was expected to last just one or two weeks in movie halls before being replaced by other movies.

But surprisingly, this movie, which had no big stars, and which was a religious movie (that was considered infra dig by city bred movie goers) began to draw crowds that was comparable to the crowd thronging to watch “Sholay”(1975).

Seeing that this movie was made on a shoe strong budget, this movie turned out to be one of the most profitable movie ever for its makers. People would offer prayer in the movie hall and perform aarti. This goddess, which few people were aware of, suddenly found a pride of place among the pantheon of Gods.

This movie, a surprise all time super duper hit, was produced by Satram Rohara and directed by Vijay Sharma for Bhagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay had Kanan Kaushal, Ashish Kumar, Anita Guha (playing the title role), Bharat Bhushan, Rajani Bala, Bela Bose, B. M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Manohar Desai, Dilip Dutta, Mahipal, Padmarani, Leela Mishra, Sushila Devi etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. The movie makers had roped in C Arjun ( largely a music director of B grade movies) as the music director. Kavi Pradeep, a top lyricist of 1940s and 1950s, but more or less out of work by that time, was signed up as the lyricist. He was an inspired choice as the lyricist, seeing that penning religious songs and patriotic songs was his strong suit.

All the songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became hugely popular and they remain so. Kavi Pradeep, in addition to penning the lyrics, also sung two songs in the movie in his characteristic style and these songs became all time classics.

Today (11 December 2020) is the 22nd remembrance day of Kavi Pradeep(6 February 1915 – 11 December 1998). On this occasion, here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975). This song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar who found herself in the role of leading female playback singer in the movie, which was rare for her, as she normally got one song in most movies, for some side actors.

This song happens to be the 200th song of Usha Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog. It is quite a befitting song to mark her double century in the blog.

This song, a prayer to Santoshi Maa, is lip synced by Kanan Kaushal. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other actors seen in the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala (long long ago).

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Karti hoon tumhaara vrat main
Sweekaar karo maa
Manjhdhaar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi
Karti hoon tumhara vrat main
Sweekaar karo maa
Manjhdhar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi

Baithhi hoon badi aasha se
Tumhaare darbaar mein
Baithhi hoon badi aasha se
Tumhaare darbaar mein
Kyun roye tumhaari beti
Is nirday sansaar mein
Paltaa do meri bhi kismat
Paltaa do meri bhi kismet
Chamatkaar karo maa
Manjhdhaar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi

Mere liye to band hain
Duniyaa ki sab raahein
Mere liye to band hain
Duniyaa ki sab raahein
Kalyan mera ho saktaa hai
Maa aap jo chaahen
Chintaa ki aag se mera
Chintaa ki aag se mera
Uddhaar karo maa
Manjhdhaar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi

Durbhaagya ki deewaar ko
Tum aaj hataa do o
Durbhaagya ki deewaar ko
Tum aaj hataa do
Maateshwari waapas mere
Saubhaagya ko laa do
Ik abhaageeni naari se
Ik abhaageeni naari se
Kuchh pyaar karo maa
Manjhdhaar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi
Karti hoon tumhaara vrat main
Sweekaar karo maa
Manjhdhaar mein main atkee
Bedaa paar karo maa
Bedaa paar karo maa
Hey maa Santoshi
Maa Santoshi
