Blog Day :

4898 Post No. : 16698

I am in my tenth year of the association with this lovely blog. I think I have mentioned this in one of my earlier posts. When I started sending ‘lyrics contributions’ to Atul ji in ‘2012’ and subsequently in ‘2013’ & ‘2014’ I was sending many songs in a single day. At that time the blog was ‘clocking’ four to six posts in a single day. However the number of posts got reduced subsequently. Nowadays we have only ‘one post or song in a day’ 😊

Now, when I go through the list of songs pending from those days, even I am surprised how I was able to send ‘many’ songs in those days. Well, the subject of today’s post is one such song which is still pending from that list.

The song is from the movie ‘Sandesh-1952’. This movie had debuted on the blog on 27.05.2013. So far, five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog. All these five songs have been shared by ‘yours sincerely’ 😊 I like all these six songs from this movie and had enjoyed a lot sharing the earlier songs. After today’s post this movie will be only two songs away from being ‘Yippeeeed’ on the blog.

“Sandesh-1952” was directed by Bal Gajbar for ‘Sandesh Pictures, Bombay’. This movie had Durga Khote, Umesh Sharma, Lalita Pawar, Kumud Lele, Meenakshi, Arvind, Nana Palsikar, Neeru, Vikas, Madan, Angrey, Priyadarshi, Dwarkanath, Nigam, Tilak Sharma, Shukla and others.

“Sandesh-1952” had eight songs in it wherein three lyricists Kumud Tripathi (six songs), Manohar Khanna (one song) and Nihal Chand Jain (Nihal Ujhanvi) (one song) had written these eight songs.

Music for this film was composed by S. Purushottam.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.09.1952.

Here is the brief about this movie which our inhouse encyclopedia Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh ji had mentioned in his comments on the song-post of 05.06.2013 of this movie.

SANDESH-1952 was a film Directed by Bal Gajbar-who was a known name in Marathi films, but, in Hindi, he was a total failure.
This was a story of a doctor with distorted principles. Dinanath’s father Vidyadhar, an honest and straight forward School teacher is falsely implicated in cases of treason and mutiny against the British and is convicted in 1922. This shock takes Vidyadhar’s life.
Dinanath and his mother go to Kashinath who was a favorite student of Vidyadhar, for help. Kashinath promises Dinanath that he will make him a doctor. During his education, Dinanath falls in love with a rich Barrister’s daughter Sudha, but their marriage cannot take place as Dinanath is very poor. She gets married to his classmate.
Dinanath goes to England and when he comes back as a doctor, he becomes only money minded, as he realises the value of money in this world. Due to his, this nature, his mother Saraswati bai leaves him.

One day, his mother meets with an accident and is brought to his Hospital, but she refuses to be treated by him. he realises that relations are more important than money and a doctor’s profession is a noble one.

He repents and changes himself. meanwhile, Sudha gets a divorce, and they meet again and unite, finally.

The Hero of the film was Umesh Sharma, who acted in Deepak-51 and Apna desh-49 also as a Hero. later he worked in many other roles, as well as a writer, director, and producer also. he acted in 33 films. He was the writer of the famous film BOMBAY-1995.

S. PURUSHOTTAM was the Music Director. He was born in Kolhapur in 1919 and rose as an assistant to Kumar gandharva in his mehfils. V. Shantaram tried to help him by giving 2 films,Bhool-1948 and Apna Desh-49. though he gave very good music, but his luck did not favour him. he also gave music for 2 songs in Dahej-1950, Mere Laal-48, Devyani-52 and Sandesh-52.
He became so dejected that he left films and went back to Kumar Gandharva as his assistant in mehfils.

Following is the list of songs of this movie.
