Today’s song is from the film Gul E Bakawali-1956.

Wild and fertile imagination has been a tool of entertaining mankind from ancient times. Today, old people tell tales to youngsters like they were told by their grandparents and so on. This has been going on and in the process, many creative authors chipped in their ‘ Two Cents ” to those existing stories enriching them further. Thus the child in the Adult man has always been provided fodder for his satiation for Romance and Thrill.

Arabian Nights has been one such book. Generations after generations have enjoyed the exploits of Allauddin, Alibaba and Sindbabd. Gul E Bakavali or the Magic flower of the plant Bakavali is also one of these stories. Needless to say that the filmmakers from the Silent era to the Talkie era have used this story in their films.

Gul E Bakavali-1924 was the first silent film on this story. And the first story in Talkie films was made in 1932. Let us see the History of these films….

GUL-E-BAKAVALI or the magic flower of the Bakavali Tree is supposed to do many things which are unimaginable. Gul-e-Bakawali is a popular medieval romance in many versions. The seventeenth-century poet Nawazish Khan was perhaps the first to write a Bangla version of Gule Bakawali, a story in verse about the love of Prince Taj ul mulk for the fairy Bakawali. The Sprinter catalogue records an Urdu Gule Bakawali written in verse in 1625. In 1722, Sheikh Izzatullah, a Bengali, wrote a prose version, Taj ul mulk Gule Bakawali, in persian. It is not known on which version Nawazish Khan based his poem.

There were several variant versions of Gule Bakawali, such as the poetic versions by Muhammad Mukim (1760–70), Muhammad Ali, Munsi Ebadat Ali (1840), Umacharan Mitra (1834), and Abdus Shakur, and the prose version by Bijaynath Mukhopadhyaya (1904). Kedarnath Gangopadhyaya wrote a play based on the story in 1978. Ebadat Ali’s Gule Bakawali is a dobhasi puthi.

The story was also popular in Urdu. Thus, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Munshi Nehalchand Lahori wrote a prose version titled Mazhabe Ishq (1803), and Dayashankar Nasim wrote a masnavi (poem) called Gulzare Nasim (1835).

* Gul-e-Bakavali was the first picture with the same subject as Silent film in 1924 directed by Kanjibhai Rathod and produced by Kohinoor flms. It starred Jamna, Khalil, Fatma Begum, Noor Mohamed, Sabita Devi, Sultana, Usha Rani and Zubeida.

* The story was made as Silent film again in 1930 (Starring Vishnu, Gulab .. Dir Mohanlal Shah)

* Gul-e-Bakavali was made into Hindi films five times in 1932 ( starring Ashraf Khan, Zaibunnisa.. Dir Anand Prasad Kapoor), 1947 ( Starring Feroz Dastur, Menaka, Rabab, Sanober..Dir Rustom Modi), 1956 ( starring MG Ramachandran,Varalaxmi, Rajkumari…Dir Ramanna TR), 1963( starring Jairaj, Nishi.. Dir Jugal Kishore) and 1982( starring Feroz Khan , Amjad Khan … Dir Ravi (Kant Nagaich )..

* The story was pictured earlier in Telugu in 1938 with title Gulebakavali directed by Kallakoori Sadasivaravu and starring B. Jayamma. and again pictured as Gulebakavali Katha in 1962 (starring NT Ramarao , Jamuna, Nagaratnam .. Dir Kamalakara Kameshwara Rao)

* There are two Tamil versions, one from mid 30’s by Soundararajan (Tamilnadu Talkies fame!) and another version in 1955 , directed and produced by T. R. Ramanna and starring M. G. Ramachandran, T.R. Rajakumari and G. Varalakshmi…

The earlier Punjabi version was released in 1938 (*Baby Noorjehan , Ajmal , M Isamil … Dir Barkat Mehra) …

In Pakistan the story was pictured in 1961 (Ilyas Kashmiri, Jamila Razzaq .. Dir Munshi Dil .. MD.. Safdar Hussain ).

Today’s film was a Tamil film dubbed in Hindi. The film was made by Madras Cine Corporation and was marketed by R.R. pictures, Madras. The director was Ramanna and the MD was Gyan Datt. The cast of the film was T R Rajkumari, M G Ramchandran, Tangavalan, Raja Sulochana, G Varalakshmi, Chandrababu and others. 8 Songs of the film were written by P L Santoshi (7) and Indivar (1).

M G Ramchandran, N T Rama Rao, Gemini Ganesan, Shivaji Ganesan and many well known Southern Heroes wanted to act in Hindi films, but their problem was Language. Thus most of their Films in Hindi are dubbed films, though Gemini Ganesan made some Hindi film appearances in person. The score for others in Hindi is MGR (11 films), NTR (23 films), Gemini Ganesan (24 films), and Shivaji Ganesan (19 films). (The famous Kannada Hero Dr. Rajkumar did not work at all in any Hindi film.) Same is the case with South Heroines. Let us see about T R Rajkumari.

T.R.Rajkumari was an addition to the already present Rajkumaris in Hindi films. Thank God she did not sing, only acted, that too only in films made in South or by south producers. The other Rajkumaris were Rajkumari Dubey Banaraswali, Rajkumari Calcuttewali and Rajkumari Shukla.

Thanjavur Radhakrishnan Rajayee (May 05, 1922 – September 20, 1999), popularly known by her screen name T. R. Rajakumari, was a film actress, Carnatic singer and dancer. She has been called the first “dream girl” of Tamil cinema. Later she turned as a producer along with her brother under the banner “R. R. Pictures”. She had an active career in the period between 1936 and 1963.

Rajkumari was born on 05 May 1922 in Thanjavur, Madras Presidency, now in Tamilnadu, in a family of carnatic musicians. Both her mother and her grandmother wanted her to become a singer and trained her in Carnatic music.

Rajkumari made her film debut in Kumara Kulothungan which was produced in 1938 – 39 but was released in 1941 after Kacha Devayani. In the initial ads her name appeared as T. R. Rajayee but later in the film she was credited as T. R. Rajkumari. In 1944, Rajakumari starred in the record-breaking film Haridas alongside M. K. Thyagaraja Bhagavathar and gained recognition for her glamorous portrayal.

She acted in few Hindi movies during 1948 to 1958. Her first Hindi film was Chandralekha with Ranjan.She worked in Chandralekha-48, Jeevan Tara-51, Manohar-54, Rajkumari-55, Gul e bakavali-56 ( produced by her company) and finally in Suhag-58.

Rajakumari died on September 20, 1999 after a prolonged illness.

Then there was Raja Sulochana in this film, who did 14 Hindi films. Chittajallu Rajeevalochana (15 August 1935 – 5 March 2013), better known as Rajasulochana, was a classical dancer and actress. She has acted in more than 300 Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi language films.
She was born on 15 August 1935 in Bezawada (now Vijayawada), in Andhra Pradesh. Her father, Pilliarchetty Bhakthavatsalam Naidu worked in Indian Railways and was transferred to Madras as PA to the General Manager of M&SM Railway. At school, her name was recorded in error as Rajasulochana.
She learned Indian classical dance from Lalithamma, K. N. Dhandayuthapani Pillai, Acharyulu and Vempati Chinna Satyam, Krishnakumar, Vishnu Vysarkar, and Kalamandalam Madhavan.

The Kannada stage and screen maestro H. L. N. Simha gave her an acting opportunity in Gunasagari (Kannada, 1953), produced by Gubbi Veeranna. Subsequently, she acted in about 274 films in all South Indian languages. She acted with all the leading stars of South Indian cinema such as M. G. Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan, N. T. Rama Rao, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Rajkumar, S. S. Rajendran, Prem Nazir, A. P. Nagarajan and M. N. Nambiar.

Rajasulochana was a special friend of the boss A.V.Meiyappan and he was trying to push her in Hindi films.It was rumoured that due to this only,a song and dance item was thrust in Chori Chori,even if it did look like a patch,having no connection to the picture story in any manner !(tum arabon ka herfer karnewale…)

Rajasulochana was a good dancer/actress and acted in some 80 odd Telugu,Kannada and Tamil movies. She acted/danced in few Hindi movies like, Aayi phirse Bahar, Alladin ka chirag, Naya aadami, Sitaron Se aage etc.

She founded the dance school “Pushpanjali Nritya Kala Kendram” in 1961 in Chennai. It has trained many students in Indian classical dance forms and celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 1986. She gave many dance performances in India and abroad and got critical acclaim for the dance dramas.

She had a son out of her first marriage and after it ended in a divorce, she married actor-director C. S. Rao and had twin daughters. One daughter lives in Chennai. The other twin daughter and son live in Chicago, Illinois.

Rajasulochana died in Chennai on 5 March 2013 at the age of 77. Condoling her death, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa said the actress had left an imprint for herself in the film industry. She was engaged in creating artistes in her dance school “Pushpanjali Nrithya Kala Kendram” here, Jayalalithaa said.

Today’s song is a duet of P.Susheela and G M Durrani.


Song- Bade tum veer sahi baat badi mat karna (Gul e Bakaawli)(1956) Singers-P Susheela, G M Durrani, Lyrics-P L Santoshi, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

Bade tum veer sahi
baat badi mat karna
Bade tum veer sahi
baat badi mat karna
nahin jeet mujhe paayega
teer kitne hi koi chalaaye
nahin jeet mujhe paayega
teer kitne hi koi chalaaye ae
Bade tum veer sahi
baat badi mat karna

o abhimaanin naari
kaisi kismat lalkaari
o abhimaanin naari
kaisi kismat lalkaari
is jag mein yoon maharaj
?? mera dam bharte hain
is jag main yoon maharaj
?? mera dam bharte hain
jo ho tumhaare
use ?? karte hain
jo ho tumhaare
use ?? karte hain

achcha jee ye kahiye
ab ?? kya chaahiye
achcha jee ye kahiye
ab ?? kya chaahiye
mujhe to pau baarah padte hi
jay paaun
mujhe to pau baarah padte hi
jay paaun

ye lo jee pau baarah
?? kaise pade
ye lo jee pau baarah
?? kaise pade

man pe hogi jeet
man pe hogi haar
yoon na bekaar mere sarkaar
man ko kariye beqaraar
man pe hogi jeet
man pe hogi haar
yoon na bekaar mere sarkaar
man ko kariye beqaraar

man se lubhaake
kya ??
adhikaar man pe paay gaya
dil ko waar ke
dil mein kisi ke
kariye pahle ye akhtiyaar
man se lubhaake
kya ??
adhikaar man pe paay gaya
dil ko waar ke
dil mein kisi ke
kariye pahle ye akhtiyaar
bekaar mere sarkaar
man ko kariye beqaraar
