When film making started in India, most films-i.e. about 98 %, were based on Religious Mythological or Folk stories. Even in that early era, there were Producers and Directors, who dared to make films on unusual but interesting subjects like Fictional kingdoms, highly scientific discoveries etc. Worth mentioning are a few films like Prabhat’s ‘ Wahan alias Beyond the Horizon’-1937, Prakash pictures’ ‘Mr. X’-38, Ranjit’s ‘ Prof. Waman M.Sc.’, Sagar’s ‘ 300 days and after’-38, Adarsha Chitra, Calcutta’s ‘ India in Africa’-1939 (first film to do shooting outside India, in foreign countries), Sagar’s ‘ Mahageet ‘-37 and the best film by Prakash Pictures-” Khwaab ki duniya’-1937. ( there may be some more such films too).

Not all such offbeat films succeeded, but surely they provided a Ray of Hope that Indian cinema will surely come out of this beaten track and grandma stories. I am not very sure, but I have a strong feeling that during the early films of the 40s, a few C grade action and stunt films too were made on such offbeat themes. One such film is Master Bhagwan’s ” Bhedi Bungala alias House of Mystery “-1949, India’s first Horror film. ( during the shooting, in one scene Bhagwan had to keep his eyes wide open-as if in fear. He stretched them so much and for such a long time that for one day he lost sight of both eyes. After the doctor’s treatment he regained his vision. Can we expect such dedication in today’s actors, in general ?).

For lack of proper documentation, we are unable to comment on such films of yore. As far back as 1936, Prabhat film company had made a film on Mutiny on the sea by a brave woman- Amar Jyoti-1936, featuring a new heroine- Durga Khote. Life on ships and sword fighting by a woman was mesmerising the audience.

The celestial entities have always enticed the Human Race. They were effectively used in sciences like Astrology and Astronomy. Since time immemorial Man always wanted to visit these planets sans The Sun. Moon was the centre of attraction. Could the Hindi filmmakers keep off from making a film on this theme ? Most kept off ! They , perhaps, thought it safe to use The Moon (चांद ) only in songs and dialogues. However, going through the list of film titles, I found that films using the word Chand in the titles were made, but barring a few C grade stunt and action films, this ‘ Chand ‘ was alluding to something else like the Lover, beloved and other similar things.

Film titled only Chaand were made in -1934,1944 and 1959. Then there were 13 films having ‘ Chand ‘ in their titles. As far as I gather, there were only 2 films made on fictional stories involving the Planet Moon. One was Chand ki Duniya-1959 and the other was Chand pe Chadhai (Trip to the Moon)-1967.

Today’s song is from film Chaand ki duniya-59. It is quite a long song….7.41 minutes to be exact. the video reveals that the song is filmed on the Hero Soham Kapila, the heroine Nalini Chonkar and the comedian Ram Avtar. If you remember, he had a hilarious role in film Teesri manzil-1966 as a co-passenger of Shammi Kapoor.

Ram Avtar Pandey, from Rampur-UP, started his filmi career in 1938 with character roles. In the early 50s, he switched to comedy, when he gained weight and a pot belly. Ram Avtar was a fixture in many Nasir Hussain films. His roles in Badi Behan-49,Nagin-54, Hum sub chor hain-56, Tumsa nahin dekha-57, Jab pyar kisi se hota hai-61, Phir vohi dil laya hoon-63, Teesri Manzil-67, Yaadon ki Baraat etc are memorable. His last film was Prem Geet-1981. He acted in 133 Hindi films.

The film was made by Filmistan, a big banner. Unfortunately, it was made as a quicky, without much interest. The film was directed by Mohan Sinha (grandfather of actress Vidya Sinha, of Rajnigandha-74 fame). The MD was Nirmal Kumar alias S.D.Batish.

Many composers gave music to C grade films using Pseudonyms. For example, C. Ramchandra gave music to action films in the name of ” Annasaheb”, S D Batish used the name Nirmal Kumar, Durrani used Gunjan as his name, to quote a few examples. But one name hardly anyone knows and that is Anil Biswas. Yes, when he gave music to film Begunah-1949, he used the name as Haribhai. His co-MD was Shyamu- which was C. Ramchandra ! This information is given in The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha.

The cast of the film was Sohan Kapila, Nalini Chonkar, Ram Avtar, P. Kailash, Badri Prasad, Husn Bano, Indira Bansal, B M Vyas, Vijay Kumar, Noor (wife of Johnny Walker) etc etc. the banner was good, story was fine, songs were good, MD was good, Heroine and Director were good. The whole problem was with the dumb Hero- Sohan Kapila. he was one actor who was a Non Actor.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj, Shammi and Shashi, who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of the famous family members, these and such many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given a fair opportunity to display their talent on the screen, but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar ,which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director, who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan.

Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar. But the movie flopped, as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan, who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from scene for ever. His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued film career, but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him, who got chances to appearopposite illustrious heroines, unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen, no film maker came forward to sign them again. Out of sight is out of mind, it was a matter of time when public as well as film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951. It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan. The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabaadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films, among hundreds of aspirants. Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge set back when Aman flopped. He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia, opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately, Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea, Rattan Chopra understood and wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physique, but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards film industry .Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting. The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev Kapoor, Manish Kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop Kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak Kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

With all this no wonder the film was a flop and a good story was wasted. Today’s song is the 4th song of this film on the Blog. But the song is good. Enjoy….
