Today’s song is from a film which is 86 years old- Pardesi Sainya-1935.

When I choose a film song for a post, there is always a thought behind it. Sometimes the cast consists of some actor who spilled over from the silent era and is on the verge of ending his career now. Sometimes the Director or the Music Director is absolutely unknown or a first timer on our Blog. Such and similar matters arouse my interest and I start gathering information about these people. Many times, I am the first person to write about that actor or director etc.

Not many people understand the importance of these things but from a Historical point of view, it is very important. Sometimes information of just one paragraph also has to be culled from half a dozen sources. perseverance and consistency are required to get such information. Even today’s film is one such film where some revealing names are there.

Film Pardesi Sainya alias My Darling aka Chaand ka Tukda-1935 was made by Gandharva Cinetone. In those days two names for a film was a common matter, but here there are 3 names. This was a company owned and floated by Baburao patel, before he started his famous Film Magazi8ne-” Film India”. Patel began this banner in the Silent Era and his first Directorial venture was a Silent film-” Kismat”-1931…the year India had entered the Talkie Era. His first Talkie film was Mahananda-33. Then came maharani-34, Bala Joban-34 and last in the first segment was Pardesi Sainya-35. The banner had a second segment after 9 years, with films Draupadi-44 and Gwalan-46, both to promote Susheela Rani- a Konkani good looking singer/dancer and a journalist of sorts. She failed in films, but joined Film India magazine as a Sub Editor, only to become a Sub-kuchh by marrying Baburao Patel !

The music was composed by one Dinkar Rao Amembal – a name hardly anybody has heard. Not only now but even in those days. later on he became famous is another thing. His elder brother A.Sunder Rao was a good Harmonium player and younger brother A Bhaskar Rao was already in the film line as a composer.

Collecting information about Dinkar Rao has been a tiring job and I had to take extra efforts.Finally I collated information on Dinkar Rao from several sources. I present here today, for the first time-as far as I know, information on Dinkarrao Amembal On any Blog discussing old films and music.

DINKAR RAO AMEMBAL AKA D’ AMEL…….Dinkar Rao was born on 24-9-1909 in Guwahati (Assam) in a CXhitrapur Saraswat Bramhin family of South Canara. The family was known as a Music loving family. He studied upto Matriculation in Ganapati High School at Mangalore. After that his family shifted to Bombay.

Dinkar was never trained in classical music by any expert. He had a sweet voice and he was self taught. He started his B.Sc. studies in Fergusson College, Poona. In the final year, he left studies and returned to Bombay. He joined Indian States Broadcasting company ( a precursor to All India Radio), as a singer and instrument player on contract basis in 1927. He was a Harmonium expert like his elder brother A.Sunder Rao- who had a Music career in south India. Dinkar Rao had master Krishnarao Phulambrikar as his Idol. After 1947, when Harmonium was banned in India by the Congress Government, he learnt Flute and Violin. He became an expert in Brass Flute.

In 1935, he started V.U.B. Orchestra. He used his name as D’Amel and broadcast several self made musical melodies on Radio. After establishment of All India Radio, his orchestra was taken over and became Akashvani Orchestra. In 1935, Dinkar Rao entered the film line.

As a Music Director he gave music to 3 films independently. They were Rangeela Nawab-35. In this film he did a small role and sang one song also. Then came Pardesi Sainya-35 and Bombshell-35, which he also directed. After 12 years, he gave music to film Beete Din along with another composer M.Rauf Osmania. His younger brother A.Bhaskar Rao was already a Music Director in Hindi films.

In 1936. Dinkar Rao was appointed Programme Director in the newly formed All India Radio, Bombay station, wherein he served till 1967. As a Director he worked with Shridhar parsekar, Alla Rakha Khan, Master Ibrahim etc etc. He was famous for creatively introducing several new popular musical programmes. While in All India Radio, he worked closely with the German Jew Walter Kauffmann, who is credited to be the inventor of the famous A.I.R. Signature tune, which is played before a Station starts on All India Radio.

He worked with many poets of Marathi and presented their songs. He served A.I.R. for 35 years including his earlier services. He was awarded by Music Research Academy of Calcutta. he was a devotee of Sufi Saint Ashraf Khan (this Sufi Saint was a Hindi film actor and singer. He had also been a popular actor on Gujarati stage dramas).

In later years Dinkar Rao became totally deaf in one year’s time. He died suddenly on 6-2-1990 at Bombay. ( I thank parrikar.org, kamath.com, Prakash Burde and Madhav Imarte for the above information.)

The cast of the film was Mubarak, Padma Devi, Shirin bano,Azurie, Raja pandit, Kamal Bhivandkar, Vaskar, nandu khote and many others. Actress padma devi was from Bengal and a spill over from the Silent Era into the Talkie films. She had a special relationship with Baburao patel. She used to move around in his magazine office at will in later times. When Susheela Ranitook over as a Sub Editor of the magazine initially and then as the ‘ Sub Kuchh’ of Patel, she cleverly cut off the association of padma Devi and baburao patel to have total control.

Raja pandit was an actor and a singer. His first film was Sati mahananda, then came Maharani-34, bala joban-34, Bhikaran-35 and Pardesi Sainya-35-his last film in Hindi. he sang songs in every film. After this he turned to marathi films and became a producer/Director. Kamal Bhivandkar did a child role in this film. She was about 12 years of age. She became friendly with Raja Pandit. Kamal became a popular big Heroine, with a new name Ratnamala and acted in big banner films in Hindi. Raja pandit and Ratnamala got married when she was hardly 16 year old. She continued to be a successful actress inb Hindi and later in Marathi films. Raja Pandit was a failed producer/director. After a few years they separated. They had a son-Jay Kumar, who died young, in an accident.

Shirin bano was the eldest sister of actress Poornima (Meher Bano). She acted in 18 films and then got married to director Nanabhai Bhatt. Mahest Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt are their sons. Nandu Khote was the father of Shubha khote- the bubbly actress of the 50’s and 60’s, in Hindi and Marathi films.

I have written short notes on these actors because their full details would have made this post unwieldy and very long, which normally readers avoid to read. I also dislike long posts. While there is no rule on the ideal length of a post, I try to remain within an average of 40 to 50 lines or near to it.

No information on the storyline or other details of this film. Today’s song is a duet of Shirin Bano and Raja Pandit. The Lyricist is not mentioned in HFGK, but the MD was Dinkar Rao Amembal.

With this song the film Pardesi Sainya-35 and the Music Director Dinkar Rao Amembal make their Debut on this Blog.
