Blog Day :

5004 Post No. : 16904

Today’s song is from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Suhaana Safar’.

Many of my articles are prompted when my memory gets triggered while listeneing to (or thinking about) songs of movies that I watched long ago.

Today’s post is one such post.

I was travelling to pick up my elder daughter from her new working place which is around 150 kms from Vadodara ( a journey of around two hours and forty-five minutes long). I was travelling to bring her back home for ‘holi’ vacation and her marriage vacation 🙂 (her marriage is scheduled this week). 🙂

I was travelling in the afternoon. When I switched on to ‘vividh bharati’ on 93.9FM’ I got to listen to this program ‘kuchh baatein kuchh geet’. It is a ‘theme’ based program where the audience also share their thoughts related to the theme and request for songs of their choice according to the theme.

During this program I got to listen to this song ‘aha aha aa ye suhaana safar’ (as the theme for that day of 17th March 2022 was ‘suhaana’ or ‘suhawnaapan’ etc.

I liked this song very much. It brought back memories of watching this movie when I must be around seven-eight years old. This movie was screened at the weekly screening of movies at the colony club where we then resided.

Though I do not remember this movie now, but this song is permanently embedded on my mind. I had shared this song as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog.

I must be between two-three years old when this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ had released. Recently I came across many movies of ‘end-sixties’ or from the years – 1968 to 1971 where songs from some of the movies are part of my nostalgia of those years.

I am sure some songs may be getting embedded on my impressionable mind then where the elders must have carried me to movies they watched or some songs were played frequently on the radio, when I was growing, and thus they become part of my vague memories.

I had earlier attempted to list down the songs which makes me feel nostalgic and those songs which bring back old memories, in this post.

I am thinking to revisit movies in chronological order -from the year of my birth i.e. 1968 to 1983-85 when I become a grown up boy and had completed my 10+2 education. I am sure this will be an interesting ‘journey’. But that is a part of another ‘series’ 🙂 of posts.

Coming back to the today’s post now …

When I reached back to my ‘base station’’ I browsed the blog and noted that this movie ‘Suhaana Safar’ is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. On checking the remaining two songs I find the song under discussion more suitable for today’s presentation as the song is happening on a ‘marriage function’ in the movie.

“Suhaana Safar -1970” was directed by Vijay for ‘Century Films, Bombay’.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, David, Manmohan Krishna, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan, K.N. Singh, Tiwari, Sunder, Randhir, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Sherry, and others.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Five songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog as given below.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a C grade Stunt film- Flying Ranee-1959.

This song was quite popular in its time and indeed it is a very melodious song. Only thing is that the tune of the song is such that you feel like listening to an O P Nayyar song. In the late 50’s, OPN had given several foot tapping and melodious songs. But such a song coming from Music Director B N Bali is very astonishing. He was not known to give such good songs. He was, however, branded as a ” Copy Cat”. In many of his songs , you feel that there was another such song already. Even today’s song is a copy of a popular OPN song.

The music for this film was given by composer B.N. Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this B N Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films. H.C. Bali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering K L Saigal in the early 30s.

B N Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer. He sang 5 songs in 4 films – Bhikari-49, Bedard-49, Mastani-55 and Tikdambaaz-59. He even acted in 1 film – Mastani-55. He was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from Bedard-1949 up to Do Dilwale-1973, a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film-Bahut Door (40s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973.Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, B N Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

‘Jab un ka khayal aata hai’-sung by Rafi in Pahla pehla pyar was a copy of Rafi’s ‘Jin raaton me neend ud jaati hai’ by Hansraj Behl.
‘Sapne me saiyan tum aaya na karo’-Asha/manna Dey song was a true copy of O P Nayyar’s ‘ Ek pardesi mera dil le gaya’
‘Tu us ka kar bhala’ Rafi in Raja Vikram sang the same “Bhagwaan’ tune as in ” O duniya ke rakhwaale’ etc. etc.

When I saw this film’s title, Flying Ranee-1959, I remembered that this was the name of a train plying between Mumbai and Surat. Few years back, when we (myself, Sadanand Kamath ji and late Bharat bhai Upadhyaya ji) planned to visit Surat to meet shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, we wanted to travel by this train, but its timing was not suitable for us.

All over the world, few selective trains are given special names like The orient Express or the Siberia special etc. Even in India also, there are many trains which have special names. Our creative minded, intelligent and genius filmmakers used these train names for some of their films. I found the following Train name films in the Hindi film index.

Punjab Mail….1939
Toofan Mail….1934 and 1950’s (UR)
Toofan Express….1938
Deccan Queen….1936 and 1962
Howrah Express….1961
Flying Express….1949
Flying Ranee-1939 and 1959
Then there were also films titled Miss Punjab Mail….1958, Miss frontier Mail….1936 and Miss Toofan Mail….1958 and 1980.
Incidentally, there were 3 films having the word Train in their titles…. The Train….1970, Train to Pakistan….1997 and Train Dakaiti….1984.

The cast of the film was Samar Roy,, Prakash, Nishi, Naazi, Heera Sawant, Ram Singh, W M Khan, Tun Tun, Jeevankala etc etc. I have no information on Samar Roy. I only know that he first acted in Bangla films. In 1949, he first came to Bombay and acted in film ” Swayamsiddha”-1949, opposite Shanta Apte. It was her last Hindi film, produced by her. I am not sure, but I believe, this film was also made in Bangla language. As such the film had most Bengali actors in the cast. After this, Samar Roy acted in 42 more films in Bombay till his last film in Hindi- Akhari Kasam-1979. He returned to Calcutta and after few films, retired. In Bombay, he acted mostly in B and C grade films initially, but later on did character roles in good social films. Coincidentally, he worked in 3 Train films, namely….Toofan mail-50’s, Flying Ranee-1959 and Deccan Queen-1962. In addition, he also acted in film ….Bombay Central….1960, – a name for a Train Terminus in Bombay !

One interesting name in the cast is Ram Singh. The actor Ram Singh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he did Hero’s and Villain’s role in many films. .His entry in films and life story is very interesting.

During the 1942 ‘ Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated Hostels. Two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Dwivedi – who later on became well known as Kavi Pradeep- and the other was Ram Singh- who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall, fair and handsome. V. Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. His family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved, when he never returned.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! There he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and enquired. The officials brought out their own son- Ramsingh before them !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the Police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich Zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (U.P.), in 1920. After graduating, while doing his M.A. he joined films. His first film was Ramshastri-44, then came Chand-44, Lakhrani-45 and Hum ek hain-46….all Prabhat films. While in Prabhat, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they gave him roles in almost every film..

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with Heroine Ranjit Kumari ( real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he had 4 children.

Ramsingh played Hero, Villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films were, besides 4 Prabhat films, Gaon-47, Shaheed-48, Khidki-49, Aparadhi-50 ( He was the Hero, opposite Madhubala), Sargam-50, Sangram-50, Shrimati ji-52, Jaal-52, Baaz-53 etc etc. In his later career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and Mythologicals. His last film was Sati Sulochana-69. ( 2 more films Veer Chhatrasal-71 and Mere Bhaiya-72 were released after he left films).

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit kumari and children in 1970 and started doing Agriculture. The U.P. Chief Minister H.N.Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. Bahuguna, to help him, immediately established ” U.P. Film Corporation ” and made Ramsingh its Chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the fields again.

Ramsing started drinking, against medical advice and died in 1984, in his village.

Let us now enjoy the copied tune in today’s song…..


Song- Sapne mein sainyya tum aaya na karo (Flying Rani)(1959) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyricist- Najmi Kanpuri, MD- B N Bali

Lyrics

sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
haye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo

o ho sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo

hey sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

ankhiyaan milaai hai to mukhda na modna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna

hey mohe chhup chhup ke sataaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
oye oye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

paas bula lo mohe apna bana lo

dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

oh sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

This date ten years ago (viz 29 march 2012) was a lean day for the blog. This date saw only two songs from two different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks

This article is the 16900th post in the blog on its 5000th day.

Blog Day :

5000 Post No. : 16900

Today (27 March 2022) is one of those days that arrives regularly in the blog. It is the century post day. Moreover, it is an even more special day for the blog. Today is the 5000th day of the blog !

The fact that today is the 5000th day of the blog was known for quite some time. The idea that this day should coincide with the century post germinated a few days ago, even though it meant that we needed to go at a slower rate than even the already slow rate for the blog.

Sudhir Jee, who floated this idea was under the impression till the last moment that today we were on to 17000th post. It was only at the last moment that he realised that we were onto just the 16900th post. 🙂

Sudhir Jee had identified a special post for the occasion of 17000th post and so that song had to be held back.

We did not have any backup song for the occasion.

Most of our century posts get posted on week days when the blog gets more visits. Today is perhaps the first time in many years when the century post was getting covered on a Sunday. The previous such occasion that I can think of was 20 July 2014, which was a Sunday too and that was the day when the 10000th post was covered on the blog. That day which saw 8 articles being posted was a memorable day for the blog, as the regulars of the blog remember even to this day.

Today is Sunday. A few years ago, I had discovered a rare and remarkable old song of 1940s that celebrated Sunday. I vaguely remembered that I had noted it down and I had even downloaded that song. That song would have been a perfect century song for today. But I could not locate that song, despite searching hard in my portable hard disks and elsewhere. It could well have been hiding in some laptop that I am no longer using.

I informed Sudhir Jee about this song and he too searched for it. But that song could not be located.

During my searches, I came across some other rare songs and I considered using one of them, in case our “Sunday” song could not be located. So here is that song.

This song, quite an interesting and rare song, is from ‘Phulwaari’ (1946).

‘Phulwaari’ (1946) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. The movie had Motilal, Khursheed, Madhubala, Ramayan Tiwari etc in it. This obscure movie had 9 obscure songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

This song, third from the movie and 16900th song in the blog is a children’s song. It is sung by Baby Anu and chorus. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song is a take on Chanda Mama from her point of view. It is quite a fun song, quite an interesting song indeed. The song , like its movie ended up becoming obscure.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

I have no idea who this singer Baby Anu was. She may have been a small child while recording this song, but today she would be in her 70s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on her. She makes her debut as a playback singer in the blog.

16900 songs on the 5000th day for the blog ! It has been quite a marathon run for this musical blog where songs have been covered at a rate of 3.4 songs everyday. These figures demonstrate the fact that if one can be consistent and disciplined that it is possible to achieve such high figures, even if our daily rate of posts may be seemingly low.

The blog now has 16900 songs from nearly 4600 movies, and around 1300 of these movies have already been Yippeee’d. These figures may not appear too daunting to the uninitiated, but these figures are big figures. We realize their size only when we try to list them or try to go through the list, or try to take a print out.

The next century mark is the big mark of 17000th song. Who thought, 14 years ago during 2008, that this blog would still be around in 2022 and people here would talk of 17000 songs in it. We are here and that target is just 100 songs away from us.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. And as always, let us hope that this musical bandwagon keeps rolling on and on and we keep discovering many musical gems in our journey.

When one looks at the songs of Hindi movies, there are lots and lots of songs of the genre of feelings of heart” and “expression of love”. Going by the statistics of the blog, 46 % songs are “feelings of heart” and 25 % of all Hindi movie songs are “expression of love”.

An interesting and spicy version of the above mentioned genre of songs is “nok jhonk” songs or. They may be fewer in number, but they are great fun songs to listen to.

Another variation of such songs is “roothhna-manaana” aka “sulking-appeasing” song.

The blog so far has 61 “nok jhonk” songs that often take place between the lovers, who are often spouses. I had done some research in these songs and I had come to the conclusion that all the roothhna (on the past of the lady) lasts for 2 minutes and 30 seconds in a 3 minutes song, and the lady then relents in the slog overs of the match and then all is well. 🙂

Here is another “nok jhonk”cum “sulking appeasing” song. This song is from “Guru Dakshina”(1950).

“Guru Dakshina”(1950) was produced by Rajasthan Studios, Bombay. This is all the detail that is mentioned about this movie in HFGK.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

This third song from the movie is sung by Trilok Kapoor (singer) and Prempal. Prempal is a female singer unlike what the name suggests. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist according to the uploader (Mr Girdharilal Vishwakarma, a renowned collector of records). Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

This is an interesting song. after the roothna-manaana on the part of the lady, it is the gentleman that sulks, and then quicky gets appeased just in the nick of time as the record time is coming to an end. 🙂

O baalam se mukh mod maad ke

“Durga”(1939) was produced by Devika Rani and Himanshu Rai and directed by Franz Osten for Bombay Talkies, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Rama Shukul, V H Desai, Mumtaz Ali, Peethawala, Saroj Borkar, Balwant singh, Lalita Deulkar etc in it.

“Durga”(1939) had ten songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the third song from “Durga”(1939) to appear in the blog.

Devika Rani is the singer. Lyrics are penned by Narendranath Tuli. Saraswati Devi is the music director.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Devika Rani herself.

From the lyrics it is seen that the song is a “wedding” song. Whether it is a gudda gudiya wedding song or a real wedding song is not known, seeing that video of the song is not available.

Nevertheless, the fact that this song came to my notice just now and it is getting discussed today validates the oft made observation that some higher forces are overseeing this blog and it is these higher forces that often decide what songs are covered in this blog on what day. 🙂 The daughter of one of our regulars got married today and fate ordained that the blog celebrates the occasion with this song from the yore.

So we take this occasion to greet the recently wedded daughter of our regular contributor Avinash Scrapwala. We all wish Shivani and Jeegar a very happy, prosperous and long married life.


Song-Nanhi Bitiya Byaah Rachaaye (Durga) (1939) Singer-Devika Rani, Lyrics-Narendranath Tuli, MD-Saraswati Devi

Lyrics

Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye

Nanhi bitiya byaah rachaaye

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 37
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 26 March 2012) saw five songs from five different movies covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5696 Raam duhaayi hai raam duhaayi hai Neki Aur Badi (1949) 8 songs covered by now out of 10
5697 Jab tak duniya rahi rahegi Ye Dil Kisko Doon (1963) 6 songs covered by now out of 10
5698 Lo ek kali muskaayi Ek Kali Muskaayi(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now

5700 Kehne waale tu bhi keh le Qawwali Ki Raat(1964) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that three movies (out of five) whose songs were covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED by now.

That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten years Challenge.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) is one of the two movies that are still unYIPPEED.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) was directed by Kanak Mishra for Bindu Kala Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Ragini, Agha,Jayshree Gadkar, Jeevan, Sajjan, Asit Sen etc. in it.

“Ye Dil Kisko Doon”(1963) had 10 songs in it. Six songs have been covered so far.

As Blog Ten Year Challenge, here is another song from “Ye Dil Kisho Doon”(1963). This song is the title song of the movie. It is sung by Rafi. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi. The song is picturised on Shashi Kapoor. The person with the trumpet could be dance directed Herman Benjamin, as guessed by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

In the (almost) 14 years of its existence, there have been many changes in the lives of those associated with atulsongaday.me.

Our Atulji has shifted base a few times in these years. If I am not wrong his daughter has qualified to be a doctor as also Nahmji’s son and Shri Arunkumar Deshmukhji’s (Guruji) grandson/s have also become doctors. Peevesie who entered the world of ASAD and was called the youngest follower turning to contributor and mouthpiece (for the blog) among her friends and family has since become a working adult and even has a life-partner as also Nahmji’s daughter. Avinashji has also shifted base a few times and also had an overseas stint in the years in between. Maheshji (Mukesh Fan is his second name) has returned to Motherland and is no longer an NRA (non-resident atulite). I know that similar changes, in life & on the work front, have happened in the lives of other Atulites too. I have myself graduated from being a full-time mother to a leisurely-paced mother.

There is a lesser-known Atulite who has contributed only one post as a guest-poster (she took over the mantle of youngest contributor). Her forte’ is that she is musically inclined as her father (a hyper-active atulite). I know that she also pens verses which are very meaningful. She had given her father this post on his birthday six years back. She was welcomed wholeheartedly by atulites who wanted more from her but her preoccupation with education and other activities may not have given her time to contribute more to the blog. But the song with that post was so meaningful, it would have been appropriate for today. She has grownup into a young adult and is stepping into a new phase of her life. Here is wishing her all the best for the future.

There is a happy event happening in the life of our Guruji too in the next few days. Wishing him lots of joy and all the best to his grandson.

“Jab Pyar Kisise Hota Hai” is a title that was first used in Hindi films in 1961 which was written and directed by Nasir Husain and had his time-tested formula of hero impersonating, heroine falling in love with the impersonator, misunderstandings creeping in due to the villain and heroine’s father, and finally the hero and heroine getting married with the blessings of all elders. The movie was littered with great songs.

The title was repeated again in 1998. This time the director was Deepak Sareen who had started his career as assistant to Yash Chopra in ‘Deewar’. He had been assistant in ‘Kabhi Kabhi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Silsila’, ‘Mashaal’ and ‘Faasle’ before independently directing ‘Ranbhoomi’, ‘Aaina’, ‘Gaddar’, ‘Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai’, and ‘Albela’. This romantic film had a skirt-chaser for a hero who is disliked by the girl initially. He woos her by promising to give up his errant ways, convinces both families that they are ready to marry. But the twist in the tale comes in the form of the hero’s son from a previous girlfriend who insists that he will tell-all to the fiancee if the hero doesn’t tell himself. The story comes to a happy ending with the girl and the child forgiving the hero and ‘THE END’

“Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai” (1998) starred Twinkle Khanna, Farida Jalal, Himani Shivpuri, Namrata Shirodkar (guest appearance), Salman Khan, Anupam Kher, Johnny Lever, Saeed Jaffery, and Master Aditya Narayan. The movie had songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Jatin-Lalit. Today we are having the movie debuting with a song sung by Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam. It has the whole cast except Aditya Narayan enjoying the engagement of Salman and Twinkle.

Today’s song is from the film Sasural-1941.

Most of the “Family Dramas”, especially from the Southern stables, depict the problems of the family after the new Bahu comes to the house. In majority cases “problem” means disputes between the Saas- Bahu or the torture meted out to the meak and humble, sanskari Bahu by the Saas and /or Nanad. We have seen many such films. And then we have also seen films where the Bahu is dominating and gives troubles to saas and sasur- going to the extent of throwing them out of their own house. The third and most enjoyable type of family drama is wherein the Bahu is Tit for Tat to the machinations of the irritating Saas and Nanad.

I have been watching movies for about 65-70 years in different languages like Marathi, Hindi, English, Telugu, Kannada, Tamil and even a few Bangla ones. This was because Hyderabad state, where I grew up, was a multilingual state having a substantial population of Marathi, Telugu and Kannada people and of course Urdu speaking Muslims-the Rulers. In the beginning, when I was about 10 to 12 years old, I used to be a ‘Chaperone’ to a group of old relatives in the family for going to the theatre to see the films. Their invariable choices were essentially Mythologicals or tear jerker family films. I have seen more such ‘crying’ or ‘miracle’ filled films in my childhood.

But besides the types of family films mentioned above, there is or rather was one more category, wherein the film story used to be , in which the ‘would be’ Sasural was described in detail or the film story was about the proposed Sasural. In such films, the marriage is fixed, but the Groom or the Bride is mistaken for a wrong person,causing misunderstanding between the pair, till the mistake is rectified to set the things right. I have seen such films too. One film of the 40’s I remember is ” Panghat”-1943, wherein the groom is mistaken for a wrong person. Another similar story was in the film ” Chitchor”-1976. Such films were quite fun to see, because except the actors in the film, everyone in the theatre knew who was the real groom or the bride ! This enhanced the enjoyment.

Today’s film Sasural-1941 is also of this type only. In this film, however, both the groom and the bride misunderstand each other for some other person, but luckily fall in love with the right companion. This film was made by Ranjit Movietone and was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi. All 13 songs of the film were written by D N Madhok and the music was by Gyan Dutt. The cast consisted of Motilal, Madhuri, Nurjahan Sr., Kantilal, Urmila, Bhagwan Das etc.etc.

Motilal was one of the earliest actors who brought ” Natural acting” to films. Later on actors like Ashok Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Amol Palekar and few others practiced it to enrich their films. Most of the new age readers may not be knowing who the actress ” Madhuri” in this film was. The only Madhuri they know is Madhuri Dikshit (I too liked her). For their benefit I reproduce here, once again, a translation of my article on this actress Madhuri. This was originally written in Marathi for a periodical, which has ceased to exist anymore.

Place- Shanmukhanand Hall,Mumbai
Date 7-2-1999
Time- 7 p.m.
Programme- Felicitation to ‘ Stars from the Silent Era’
Organisers- ” Amrut” and ” Cine Society of Bombay ”

The entire hall was overcrowded. Not only all the seats were occupied, but people were standing wherever possible. Everybody wanted to see the Two STARS on the stage-Jairaj and Madhuri. Both were in their late 80s, but looked radiant and smiling. For Madhuri it was a surprise, that the organisers found her out after living in oblivion for over 50 years. She was simply overwhelmed with the people’s affection and love. For Jairaj,these things were not new. He has been around all the time.

Madhuri and Jairaj were a Popular pair in Silent film era. They worked as a lead pair in 3 films, one each in 1930-Rasili Rani, 1931-Warrior from the wild and 1932-My Hero. They came together after almost 70 years, on this stage.

Like many others, Madhuri too was an Anglo Indian. Her name was Beryl Claessen. She was born on 3-11-1913 at Delhi. Her father was a big officer in the Government. Her initial schooling took place in Nainital. She learnt music too,because she wanted to become a Music Teacher. However, she never became,but on a visit to Bombay she was picked up by producer Indulal Yagnik and she started acting in silent films.

Many Heroines in those days were Anglo-Indians,Europeans or Jew girls. Since silent films did not require speaking Hindi or Urdu ( or any language,for that matter),these girls were preferred,as the Indian audience loved their fair colour (Gori Mem). Additionally,these girls did not hesitate to give intimate scenes like kissing or doing stunts themselves. Most girls knew Horse riding,fencing and fighting.

In 1928,there was a Silent film Madhuri,but actress Sulochana(Ruby Myers) did this role and in 1932 there was a Talkie film Madhuri,in which also Sulochana only did the role. When the Talkie films era began most of the Anglo Indian girls became jobless,since they could not speak Hindi/Urdu nor could they sing a song-the two requirements for actresses in early era Talkie films. However,few intelligent and professional actresses learnt Hindi/Urdu language speaking. Madhuri and Sabita Devi (Irene Gasper) were two such clever girls who achieved proficiency in these matters.

Madhuri was very beautiful. After doing 17 silent films,she made her debut in Talkie films with ‘ Pardesi Preetam’-1933. Jaswantlal Nandlal directed his first film here. Her Hero was Raja Sandow. She did many films for Ranjit under the direction of Jayant Desai. From 1933 to 1942,she acted in 28 films. They were (not in order) Kashmeera, Mitti ka Putla, Noor e watan, Secretary, Lehri lala, Rangeela Raja, Sitamgarh, Prithviputra, Thokar, Raj Ramni, Diwali, Matlabi Duniya, Toofani Toli, Shama parwana, College Girl, Nadira, Veer Babruvahan, Zamin ka chaand, Ban ki chidia, Toofan Mail, Mehman, Sasural, Shadi, Ikrar, Vakil Saheb, Paapi, Mazaq and Dharm-45 …her last film.

In 1941,Madhuri got married and after completing films on hand, retired from Film line. After this, she simply disappeared for next 50 years without a trace,till the organisers of a programme located her. Bombay’s ” Amrut” and ” Cine Society of Bombay ” held a felicitation programme on 7-2-1999, for “Stars from the Silent Era”. For Madhuri it was a surprise that the organisers found her out after living in oblivion for over 50 years. She was simply overwhelmed with the people’s affection and love.

She and Jairaj were felicitated on that day.

Film Sasural-1941 story appeared in the December issue of Film India magazine review, in short. Our Sadanand Kamath ji had given it in 2016, in his comments. Here it is…

“The marriage of Vinod (Motilal) and Usha (Madhuri) is fixed, But Usha has not seen her would-be-husband. A mix-up of suitors happens when a fat servant (Kantilal) impersonates Usha’s would-be-husband. The detailed story is not revealed in the review probably to avoid the ‘suspense in the comedy of errors’. It is only towards the end of the film when the impersonation of suitors gets revealed while on a forest trail when Usha falls in the arms of Vinod and the fat servant (Kantilal) gets the maid (Nur Jahan Sr,) as the original suitors.”

The funny song is sung by Kantilal, Motilal and chorus. Kantilal was a favourite with Sagar Movietone initially and then Ranjit Movietone. he featured in all the 3 successive comedy films made by Ranjit in this war period, namely Musafir-1940, Pardesi-1941 and Sasural-1941. Chandulal Shah believed that his audience needed lauhter during the tensions created by the second world war.

KANTILAL CHHAGANLAL PACHCHIGAR ( Soni) was born on 18-4-1907 in Surat, Gujrat. He was from a Goldsmith family. Due to inherent interest in music,after college education he came to Bombay to try film singing.

His first film was ‘Bulbul e Paristan’-1934 from Vishnu Cinetone. Kikubhai Yagnik was the MD. Kantilal sang 2 songs in it.In 1935, he acted, sang and gave Music to Preet ki reet. He sang in 6 songs.

ho kunda khole nahin
bibi bole naahin
ho kunda khole nahin
aji baahar pade re barsaat

bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin

aji baahar pade re barsaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

baaman ke ghar kutiya re bhaunke
bole naahin
kuchh bole naahin
baaman ke ghar kutiya re bhaunke
ghadi ghadi mein ?? chaunke
baali umar dar jaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
o ji baali umar dar jaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

kanya ke ghar chaandi sona
par kismat mein phata bichauna
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
kanya ke ghar chaandi sona
par kismat mein phata bichauna
khaane ko hai bhaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
aji khaane ko hai bhaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

aeji baahar pade re barsaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

miyaan ke ghar mein patli jo daal
miyaaan jee ladke chale sasuraal
o miyaan ke ghar mein patli jo daal
miyaaan jee ladke chale sasuraal
aji shaadi kar pachhtaaye
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
ho kunda khole naahin

aeji shaadi kar pachtaaye
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

aeji baahar pade re barsaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin

?? nain lade re
aeji bhaado ki kaali kaali raat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
aeji bhaado ki kaali kaali raat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin
aeji baahar pade re barsaat
bole naahin
bibi bole naahin
o kunda khole naahin
bibi bole naahin
bole naahin
