Today’s song is from a stunt film-Ji Haan aka Yes Please-1945. Made by Gautam Chitra, Bombay, it had a pair of Directors-Babubhai Mistri and Ramnik Bhatt. All songs were written by Pt. Indra and the music was composed by S N Tripathi. The cast was full of the usual members of stunt films… Master bhagwan, Agha, Shanta Patel, Meera, Gulab, Azeem, Anant Prabhu etc.etc.

The 8 songs of this film give us some idea about the film. Out of the 8 songs, 5 are Comedy songs. 5 songs are sung by Shanta patel, 2 are by Meera and 1 is a chorus song Shanta Patel or Meerawere really not singers by any standards. getting them to sing for the movie clearly indicated a measure to save on cost of the production. All these stunt films were made on a tight budget. Because of this, the investment was less and profits were more. As there was a fixed audience in almost every town for such films, the distributors did not mind to invest or buy the rights for various circuits.

Nowadays, one film costs around 5 to 10 crores to make it. If some A+ grade star is featured, then the cost can go up to 25 to 30 crores also. In this context, if I were to tell you that in the 40’s decade a stunt film was made within just one Lakh, would you believe it ? You ought to, because thats what was required, according to Master Bhagwan-the stunt film expert of those days. During the first decade i.e. the 30’s, the cost was about 40 to 50 thousand rupees only, inclusive of everything.

As the decade of the 50’s was a Gold mine for Mythological and Religious films (124 films in 10 years), the 40’s was a storehouse for stunt films. The Cast, Director and the Production House were fixed. Lyricist and the MD depended on availability at cheaper cost or those who wanted an opening to films. Sometimes in the 60’s and the 70’s, the C grade films were the last resort for even the one time well known MDs. Composers like Anil Biswas, C. Ramchandra, Chitragupta and few others gave music to such films, for survival.

Names of stunt film actors is an interesting matter. Some common and regular names one found in Action/Stunt films are, Nadia, Boman Irani, Sayani,Bilimoria bros, Cooper sisters, Zohra Khatun, Ameena Khatun, Khatun Bai, Prakash, Adjania, Noorjehan (sr.), Moosa Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan, Azim bhai, Basheer, Ali, Bachha, Chandra Rao,Harishchandra Rao, Shankar Rao,Master Bhagwan, Mirajkar, Jamshed ji, John Cavas, Lalita Pawar, Navin chandra…and many such names.

Kamran, Afghan Sandow,Habib, Ismail,, Dalpat, Dilawar, Leela Pawar, Leela Gupte, Shanta Patel, Usha Shukla, Madhuri, Dhondu, Shaikh, Nazi, Nishi, etc were a guarantee of 2-3 hours of exciting times. Forget the music or a coherent sensible story. Fighting, Fencing, Riding and a mix of Comedy and Dance was an assured entertainment.

In addition to all this, actors with odd and weird names were to be always found in stunt film casts. Have you ever heard actors with names like Bajarbattu, Phool Kumari, Maruti pehelwan, Batata, Mitthoo Miyaan, Fatty Prasad, Boken Chattu, Minu the Mystic, Manchi Tuthi, Gareeb Raja, Kurbaan Jaoon, Pandit Dukhi, Vilayatu, Loveji Lavangiya, Adam Sandow, Sandow Safar, Dunlop, Chic Chak and a very strange name CHEMIST ! This name is found in 5-6 films.

In the cast you will find a name Meera. This is aname for ‘ Same Name Confusion.’ At the same time, in the same period, there were 2 actresses named Meera. The Meera who acted in this C grade stunt film lasted a longer time. Meera’s real name was Muriel Alexander. She was born on 10-11-1919. She was from a respectable family. her father was Superintendent-local Audit in AG’s office. Brother E. Alexander was an All India level cricketer. She passed her Inter Science exam from Benaras Hindu University. It was through one Mr. Seal, who was a manager in Adarsh Chitra, she got her first break in film Dolti Naiya-34 and Shah E Iran-34 but film Dhuwandhar-1935 was released first.. This was the Debut film of Leela Chitnis also. It is not known if she sang any song in that film,as no records are available. My guess is that,besides acting,she must have sung a few songs in that film.

Her name later appears as an actress and singer in the film Bhabhi-38,in which she sang 3 solo songs. from 1935 to 1938,she must have sung many songs,but singers names are not mentioned. Thus many singers’ credit must have been lost in those years.Same case was with Amirbai Karnataki also. After Bhabhi,her name appears in Nirmala-38 and vachan-38 in which she sang 1 solo and 3 duets. She acted and sang songs in films of Ranjit, Prakash and Minerva Movietone.

She was married to Mr. R.N.Singh, Revenue Minister of Charkhari state.

As per information available, Meera acted in Shah E Iran-34,Dolti Naiya-34, Dhuandhar-35, Bhabhi-38, Vachan-38, Adhoori Kahani-39, Tatar ka chor-40, Paak Daman-40, Chingari-40, Darshan-41, Armaan-42, Meri Duniya-42, Mauj-43, Dr. Kumar-44, Krishna bhakta Bodana-44, Ji haan-45, Sham Savera-46, Ye hai Duniya-48, Sansar-51, Ilzam-54 and Hanuman Janma-54. She only sang in Nirmala-38 and Ulti Ganga-42. She sang 17 songs in 7 films.

Then there is also an actress named Gulab in the film cast. The First actress from Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film ‘Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by East India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed by Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in the film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. Her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64. She also sang 22 songs in 11 films.

Today’s song is also a comedy song. With this song, the film Ji Haan-1945 makes its Debut in the Blog.

haay ghar mein choohon ki aawaaz hai
Haaye mora sainya to

Haaye mora sainya to

mehndi lagaa kar main naihar se aayi

mere gobar bhare haathh aaj hain
mere gobar bhare haathh aaj hain
Haaye mora sainya to
ho mora sainya to

chhakke panje ka
ghar mein hi raaj hai
chhakke panje ka
ghar mein hi raaj hai
Haaye mora sainya to
ho mora sainya to

sakhiyon to pahnen
sona aur chaandi
sakhiyon to pahnen
sona aur chaandi
haan sona aur chaandi
haan sona aur chaandi
aur yahaan
yahaan peetel ke hi
saare saaz hai
haay peetel ke hi
saare saaz hai
Haaye mora sainya to
ho mora sainya to
sattebaaz hai
