Today’s song is from the film Naya Raasta-1953.

Human nature is basically the same all over the world. There are some emotions and likes, common to all people everywhere in the world. Irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion or Language, certain wishes are common all over the world. One of these likes, emotions or wishes is the Human Curiosity, anxiety and craze for things which are NEW. Be it Fashion, Books, Films, Food or a Gift, the very word NEW evokes common emotions all over the Human race !

Clever filmmakers understood this Human weakness for NEW or NAYA quickly and film titles featuring this word were used in an attempt to draw audience attention and a bee-line to the ticket window. Right from the early Talkie days i.e. the 1930’s films with Naya/Nayi were showcased. Nayi Duniya, Nayi Roshni and Naya Zamana were brought in the 30’s. The trend slowly caught up and in the 40’s, there were 12 films with Nayi or Naya in their titles. These were, Nai Baat, Nayi Bhabhi, Nai Duniya, Nayi kahani, Nayi Maa, Nayi Reet, Nayi Roshni, Nai Taleem, Naya Sansar, Naya Tarana and Naya Zamana. Not to be outdone, the 50’s came up with 14 film titles with nayi or naya. Some of them were well known films like Naya Daur, Nai Delhi, Naya Andaz (remake of famous musical film Bazaar-1949) and Naya Paisa.

However, it was a moot question as to how many films with Naya and Nayi in their titles stood up to quench the curiosity of their audience !

Today’s film Naya Raasta was based on a Gujarati drama “Sarvodaya”, staged by Shri Deshi Natak Samaj, which played in Bhangwadi theatre, Bombay for a record period. It became a superhit drama. The owner of Jayant Desai Productions, chose this drama to make a film. It was directed by its owner Jayant Desai himself. Unlike the hit Gujarati drama, the film could not run for a long period and was drubbed at the Box Office.

My observation about the films made on popular or famous books, novels or dramas is that it was only the Bangla film industry which had succeeded in making films on famous works of well known authors. Films remade in Hindi from these Bangla films were always successful all over India. In the 1930s and the 1940s, most films made by Bangla filmmakers, especially New Theatres, were equally popular even in their Hindi editions.

Such success was never seen in Hindi films. In the first place not many films were made on popular works of well known authors of Hindi, unlike Bangla films, on a large scale or even Marathi films on a smaller scale. It seems Hindi audiences liked to enjoy imaginary and sheerly entertaining films churned out by the various ” Story departments” of our filmmakers.

Film Naya Raasta-53 had music by Chitragupta-the melody maker, ably assisted by Dilip Dholakiya. There were 8 songs in the film. Today’s song is the 4th song to be discussed here. It is sung by Chitragupta, Dilip Dholakiya and Laxmi Roy. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Agha, Manhar Desai, Bipin Gupta, Satyanarayana, Krishnakumari, Suryakumar, Umakant and many others.

Today’s song starts with English words Good Bye and Tata. Use of English words in the Mukhda of Hindi film songs is nothing new. Even in the 1933 film ” Karma”, there was a complete English song-“Now the Moon”. Again in the 1937 film ” Duniya na Maane” there was an English Poem recited by Shanta Apte with flawless pronunciation. In the 40’s, 50’s and then onwards in every decade English words in the Mukhada were found.

In the cast we find 2 interesting names-Satyanarayana and Surya kumar. Both were Dance Directors in Hindi films and both had a penchant for acting in the films. This habit is found in many directors too. The famous Alfred Hitchcock had a habit of making a cameo appearance in every of his films and it provided an interesting pastime game to his fans to locate him in the film. I too was one of the fans doing this religiously.

Robert aka Suryakumar (brother of Dancer/Choreographer Krishna Kumar) was born on 14-12-1924. He started his film career as assistant in the sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period, yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer’ was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films, that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded.

Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted Madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in the film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, when she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravan Kumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too, before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

The female singer in today’s song is Laxmi Roy. Laxmi Roy was the younger sister of Geeta Dutt. When Mukul Roy became a composer with his first film Bhed-50, he gave Laxmi Roy her first film song to sing. She was not a very good singer or her voice was not an extraordinary one. So no major composers noticed her. Chitragupta gave her one song in Bhakta Puran-52 and 2 songs in Nayaa Rasta-53. Composer Vinod tried her with one song in Aag ka Dariya-53. S. N. Tripathi gave her two songs in Nav Durga-53 and lastly she sang one song for Mukul Roy in Sailaab-56.

Pramod Chakravarty, who became a well known Director and producer later on, was working as assistant to Guru Dutt in Sailaab. During its making Laxmi and Pramod got married and Laxmi’s singing career came to a close ! In all she sang just 8 songs in 6 films.

Let us enjoy this interesting song….

Lyrics

Good bye
Tata
Good bye
Tata

Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

aakhon ki ulti patti palat lo
varna padega chaantaa
aakhon ki ulti patti palat lo
varna padega chaantaa chaanta
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

tumse adab se kehta hoon madam
sun lo yahi albatta
tumse adab se kehta hoon madam
sun lo yahi albatta
apne sajan ko tumne banaaya
patton mein tirpanwa patta
apne sajan ko tumne banaaya
patton mein tirpanwa patta
wo patta joker jismein samajh lo
bade bade patton ko kaata kaata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

office mein baithhi type karo tum
ghar mein pakaaun main roti
office mein baithhi type karo tum
ghar mein pakaaun main roti
tu meri maalik main tera chaakar
Kismat ye kaisi hai khoti
tu meri maalik main tera chaakar
Kismat ye kaisi hai khoti
ik din gulaabi raste pe gori
tum ko milega kaanta kaanta
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

jeewan ko samjho na koi juaa
yoon haar ke ?? Baazi
jeewan ko samjho na koi juaa
yoon haar ke ?? Baazi
jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
malmal raaste hain sabke waaste
sukh dukh ko ghar ghar baantaa baantaa
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
