‘Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin Bijli’ (1971) has eight songs according to HFGK. The eight listed songs have been covered so far, but the movie was not marked as YIPPEEE’D. That is because the movie has another song in it that is not listed in HFGK.

Blog Day :

5247 Post No. : 17248

He was only 48 years old when he passed away in 1951. One of the pioneering luminaries of cinema in Bengal, as it was emerging in the 1920s and 30s, he was a multi skilled cinema person who was an actor, a producer, director, script writer, cinematographer, film editor, make-up specialist, lighting specialist – yes, quite a portfolio of skills.

Remembering Pramthesh Chandra Barua, on his remembrance day today. He passed away this day, in 1951.

Born on 24th October, 1903, he was the son of the royal family of Gauripur (in Assam). His school and college education happened in Calcutta. He got married at the age of 18, while still at college. Later in life, he would be married again twice. His third wife was actress Jamuna, who appeared opposite him in the Bengali version of ‘Devdas’ (1935) produced at New Theatres.

His introduction to the world of cinema was quite accidental. While at Shantiniketan, he got introduced to Dhirendranath Ganguly, who then introduced him to the fledgling films industry in Bengal. In 1926, he joined the film company British Dominion Films. His screen appearances start from 1929, as he appeared in ‘Panchashar’ (debut film) directed by Debaki Bose, and ‘Takay Ki Na Hay’ directed by Dhirendranath Ganguly.

His urge was to have his own studio and produce his own films. The opportunity came in 1930, when he had to travel to England for medical treatment. He obtained a letter of introduction from Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore for French film maker M Rogers. After his treatment in London, he met M Rogers in Paris, and learnt the skills of cinematography from him.  He also visited the Fox Studio and Elstree Studios in London and learned the techniques of lighting and scenario composition.

He returned to Calcutta (now Kolkata) with a load of camera and lighting equipment and set up the Barua Studio and Barua Film Unit. In 1931 he produced his first film ‘Apradhi’ which was directed by Debaki Bose. He played the lead role in this film. The film ‘Apradhi’ is a path breaking film for Indian cinema, from a technology perspective. This is the first film that was shot under artificial lighting. Prior to this experiment, the films were always shot using natural lighting. The use of artificial lighting also brought in the need to change the method of make-up of actors. It is notable that in the experimentation on lighting and make-up techniques, Barua wasted almost 50,000 feet of stock footage, and that in an era when raw stock was difficult to obtain, and was costly. But the film production brought in significant changes to the film making techniques and the technical know-how for film directors and cinematographers.

In 1932, he produced ‘Nisher Dak’ and ‘Ekada’. The latter was directed by Sushit Mazumdar, with story by Barua himself. He also appeared in the role of a villain in the film ‘Bhagyalaxmi’ produced by Indian Cinema Arts and directed by Kali Prasad Ghosh.

In 1932, he produced his first talkie film – ‘Bengal-1983’. It was a brave attempt by the young film maker to tackle a futuristic subject. The film was inaugurated by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. But the film turned out to be a commercial disaster, and Barua was forced to close down his studio due to financial difficulties.

In 1933, BN Sircar invited Barua to join New Theaters. With the skills at hand, and the encouraging environment at New Theatres, Barua excelled in his film making. New Theaters brought him to the zenith in his career as a film maker. His first directorial venture was ‘Rooplekha’ released in 1934. He played the lead role opposite to Uma Shashi. With this film, Barua introduced another new technique for the first time in Indian cinema – use of flashback for storytelling.

Then in 1935 came ‘Devdas’. Barua directed all the versions – the Hindi, Bangla and Assamese, and played the lead role in the Bangla version. Critically acclaimed, Barua’s portrayal of the tragic hero was so lively that it made him a legend. He was all but 32 years old at that juncture.

‘Devdas’ was an instant commercial success. It is hailed as the first social film to enjoy success and popularity as never before. From a technical perspective also, the film is rated very high – for the use of multiple techniques – close up, montage, wipe, dissolve, fade-in fad-out etc. The film also uses flashback and introduced a new technique – ‘intercut telepathy shot’.

In 1936 he directed ‘Manzil’ and in 1937 came ‘Mukti’. Both films were bold and much ahead of their times in terms of the subject matter. Taking off from ‘Devdas’, Barua explores the human relations and love triangles which are extremely poignant and thought provoking. The film ‘Mukti’ is notable in that it is a pioneering effort of outdoor shooting. A major part of the film is shot in the scenic outdoors of Assam. It took almost two decades for the rest of industry to become seriously interested in using outdoor shooting for storytelling.

In 1937, he directed ‘Rajat Jayanti’ which turned out to be a roaring riot of laughter. Considered as the first serious attempt at a full length comedy feature, this film was commercially and critically a success. In the same year, he also directed ‘Adhikar’, which is another path breaking film in that questioned the divisions in society and overtly advocated class struggle.

Bimal Roy and Phani Majumdar started their film careers working under Barua at New Theaters.

In 1940, after directing ‘Zindagi’ starring KL Saigal (coming together once again after ‘Devdas’ of 1935), Barua moved from New Theaters and started work once again as an independent and freelancer. Except for one or two, there are no notable films that came from his work in this period post New Theaters. One needs to mention ‘Shap Mukti’ (1940), which he directed for Krishna Movietone, ‘Jawaab’ (1942) which he directed for MP Productions, and ‘Shesh Uttar’ (1942) produced and directed by himself. It appears that Barua and New Theaters was the magic mix, which faded away when he moved out of New Theaters.

In this phase, he took to drinking heavily, and his health began to deteriorate. He passed away in 1951, on this date.

The song I present today is presumably not released on 78 rpm records. I present an edited clip extracted from the video of the film. Unfortunately, the first line of this rendition is not available in the original film clip that I have. On screen, this is actually a two part song that is listed as separate songs in the Geet Kosh. This song itself is a very thoughtful construction. The hero (Prashant, role played by Barua) is in a phase of depression. His earlier marriage with Chitra (role played by Kanan Devi) is a failed venture and post divorce he moves to rural Assam, where he stays in a local inn managed by Pahari (role played by Nawab), and his wife Jharna (role played by Menaka Devi). The couple takes to this depressed young man very kindly. Pahari and Prashant become very good friends.

A passage is shown where Prashant is off in the woods, and in his melancholic despair is singing two couplets from the original ghazal by Mirza Ghalib – ‘Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati’. Incidentally Jharna is also close by, having come to fetch water from the river. She hears him sing these depressing lines, and then she responds with the second part of this song which is an effort to inspire and encourage the young man.

The notable thing is how the director has constructed this scenario. He takes two couplets from a famous ghazal of a legendary poet, and then attempts to juxtapose that against a positive and encouraging thought that answers to the points of despair raised in the original lines. The response is written by Aarzoo Lakhnavi, and is indeed a masterpiece in itself, as it tries to confront Mirza Ghalib, by showing the other side of the picture.

The music is composed by Pankaj Mullick. There is no mention about the identity of the singing voices. And I have indicated that as such below. Are these the voices of the on screen actors themselves? I do not know, and do not want to make an uninformed guess. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please help to identify and confirm the singing voices in this song.

Remembering PC Barua. An attempt to keep alive the memories of this multi skilled pioneer film maker, whose many path breaking contributions have enriched the film making technology and techniques. May these memories be sustained for the future generations.

Song – Koi Ummeed Bar Nahin Aati (Mukti) (1937) Singer – Unidentified Male Voice, Unidentified Female Voice, Lyrics – Ghalib, Aarzoo Lakhnavi, MD – Pankaj Mullick

Lyrics

[koi ummeed bar nahin aati]
koi surat nazar nahin aati
nahi aati

hum wahaan hain
jahaan se hum ko bhi
kuchh hamaari khabar nahin aati
marte hain aarzoo mein marne ki
maut aati hai
par nahin aati
nahin.. aati

hai gila kis ka
koi ummeed bar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi
parde aankhon se utha
surat nazar aa jaayegi

rakh tu be-aasi pe baaki
aas ka bhi silsila
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi
tu kisi aalam mein bhi hoga
khabar aa jaayegi

hai museebat ki bhi ek hadd
is se ghabraana hi kya
ghabraana hi kya
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi
maut ki to kya khabar
raahat magar aa jayegi

[कोई उम्मीद बर नहीं आती]
कोई सूरत नज़र नहीं आती
नहीं आती

हम वहाँ हैं
जहां से हम को भी
कुछ हमारी खबर नहीं आती
मरते हैं आरज़ू में मरने की
मौत आती है
पर नहीं आती
नहीं॰॰ आती

है गिला किसका
कोई उम्मीद बर आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी
पर्दे आँखों से उठा
सूरत नज़र आ जाएगी

रख तू बे-आसी पे बाकी
आस का भी सिलसिला
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी
तू किसी आलम में भी होगा
खबर आ जाएगी

है मुसीबत की भी इक हद
इस से घबराना ही क्या
घबराना ही क्या
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी
मौत की तो क्या खबर
राहत मगर आ जाएगी

We can observe that four movies (out of seven) have already been YIPPEED in the blog. In fact, three movies were YIPPEED on the blog on that very day (29 november 2012).

That leaves us with three movies that are technically eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (29 november 2022).

“Daaku”(1955) is one BTYC eligible movie today.

“Daaku”(1955) was directed by Aspi Irani for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Shashikala, Kuldip Kaur, Anwar Hussain, Maya Das, Babu Raaje, Sheikh, Naagpal, Michael, Habib, Gulnar, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Azurie, Iqbal, Adib etc. Sulochana was also there in a guest appearance.

Here is the fifth song from “Daaku”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha BHonsle. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snhal Bhatkar.

Theb song is picturised as a stage dance song of sorts on Shashikala and Shammi Kapoor who seem to be playin Indian version of gypsies. One can watch Kuldeep Kaur among the audience who seems to be disturbed at the sight of the dancing duo on stage.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#10)

Today 27th November’2022 is the seventieth birth anniversary of Composer Singer Bappi Lahiri (27.11.1952-15.02.2022). He passed away this year on 15th February leaving behind the legacy of his ‘disco’ music and many other memorable songs in Hindi Film Music.

He made his debut as a singer in a Bengali movie ‘Daadu’ in 1972 and if we considered this first assignment of him in Bangla movie ‘Daadu’ which came to him in 1969 (as told to Anupama Chopra in an interview). He has many records on his name and he has been conferred by many many awards time to time.
The first Hindi movie as a music composer was ‘Nanhaa Shikaari’ which came to him in 1971 and this movie was released in 1973.

I had mentioned in my earlier post on the blog that the song ‘Bambai se aaya mera dost’ from ‘Aap Ki Khaatir-1977’ was my first introduction with Bappi Lahiri. This song was very popular then and was played frequently on radio and loud speakers or in orchestras.

After that I remember it was the songs of ‘Pyaara Dushman-1980’, ‘Armaan-1981’, ‘Waardaat-1981’, ‘Namak Halaal-1982’ etc. I liked the songs from ‘Armaan’, ‘Waardaat’, though I never had watched these movies until now. But these songs had become very popular then. I also liked the songs of ‘Disco Dancer-1982’ very much, and I specially remember them because in that summer vacation of 1983 after appearing the 10th board exams our group of friends would be listening to the songs of ‘Disco Dancer’ and ‘Nikaah-1983’ on cassette player.

Later on after getting connected with this blog and in the recent years I have come across many of his songs before the ‘disco era’ which in those years I was not aware that they were composed by him, but I liked them and have also shared few of them on the blog.

Still there are many of his songs which I get to listen on radio during my daily listening. There are many such songs which I had been listening and liking without knowing that they have been composed by Bappi Lahiri. I am trying to share them on the blog as possible.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Suraksha-1979’. Music for this movie was composed by Bappi Lahiri. I vaguely remember the posters mentioning ‘Gunmaster G-9’ of this movie in those years. I have yet to watch this movie.
This movie is going to make its debut on the blog today.

In the year ‘1979’ the following nine movies where Bappi Lahiri had composed the music were released.

Sno Name of the Film(Year) Date of Censor Board Certificate Lyricist/s
1 Aangan Ki Kali(1979) 15.05.1979 Shaily Shailendra
2 Ahsaas(1979) 23.10.1979 Indeevar, Ravindra Peepat
3 Aur Kaun?(1979) 05.01.1979 Amit Khanna
4 Do Hawaldaar(1979) 06.01.1979 Shaily Shailendra
5 Iqraar(1979) 10.09.1979 Kulwant Jani
6 Jaan E Bahaar(1979) 10.08.1979 Gauhar Kanpuri
7 Lahu Ke Do Rang(1979) 11.09.1979 Farooq Qaiser
8 Shikshaa(1979) 28.12.1978 Gauhar Kanpuri
9 Surakshaa(1979) 01.06.1979 Ramesh Pant, Farooq Qaiser

“Surakshaa-1979” was directed by Ravikant Nagaich for ‘Gopi Enterprises, Madras’.

It had Ranjeeta, Mithoon Chakravarty, Jeevan, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Prema Narayan, Mala Jaggi, Suresh Oberoi and others.

Tej Saproo and Balaji were introduced on the screen with this movie.

This movie has five songs released with seven sound tracks including one dialogue and one music sound track.

Ramesh Pant wrote four songs and Farooq Qaiser had written one song for this movie.

Today’s song is written by Farooq Qaiser. Singer of the song is Bappi Da himself with Annette and chorus.

This song is played while the titles of the movie are rolling. On screen we can see Mithoon Chakravarty lip-syncing the songs with beautiful girls around him.
This song is heard more nowadays in the musical reality shows where ever there are special episodes on Bappi Lahiri and Mithoon Chakravarty is special judge on the shows. He is a regular feature as ‘special jury’ at many such musical reality shows.

I don’t remember to have listened to this song frequently during those years when the movie was released. However this movie is said to be one of the successful movies of Mithoon Chakravarty then.

Let us now listen to today’s song and pay our tributes to Bappi Lahiri.

(Note – the second stanza mentioned below is not on the audio of this song it is played in the movie though.).

Welcome all to this post under ‘blog ten year challenge 2012-2022’. This post of mine under this series is coming after a long gap. 🙂

I had come across today’s song couple of months back when I heard it on radio and again it got played on radio recently. The song is a ‘distinct’ composition of a regular music director and music lovers can easily guess the name of the music director if they listen to the song. The music director in this case is Rajesh Roshan.

Rajesh Roshan has given us many memorable songs and also entertaining enjoying light music to ‘celebrate life’.

The song is from the ‘1977’ movie ‘Mama Bhanja’.

Ten years back on this day i.e. 27th November’2012 there were as many as eight songs were posted on the blog.

The details of these songs are as given below. The status of the movies of the respective songs is also given below.

————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 26 November 2012, Six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks

We can observe that four movies (out of six) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago (on 26 november 2012) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with two movies that are still eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (26 november 2022).

“Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin Bijli”(1971) is one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

This movie was produced and directed by V Shantaram for V Shantaram Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Sandhya, Abhijeet, Minal, Praveen Kumar, Sushant Ray aka Siddharth, Dina Gandhi aka Pathak, Iftekhar, Raja Paranjape, Ravindra, Basant, Presh Nanda, Birbal, Vatsala Deshmukh, Vasant Parekh etc in it.

“Jal Bin Machhli Nritya Bin Bijli”(1971) had eight songs according to HFGK. Seven songs have been covered so far. So this song would be the final song from the movie.

But there is another song in the movie that was not listed in HFGK. So another song will remain to be covered after this song.

Here is the eighth song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The Nightingale of Punjab – the sobriquet given to her by the film industry and the media. Today, she would have completed 93 years.

Remembering the zestful singer Surinder Kaur on her birth anniversary today.

Born in Lahore in 1929, her family moved to Ghaziabad near Delhi when the Partition happened. It was the same year that she also got married. She was already a singing star in undivided Punjab, and had made her debut as  singer on the Lahore radion station in 1943. Between 1943 and 1947, she and her elder sister Prakash Kaur recorded a number of Punjabi folk song with HMV. These songs have created a genre of their own, and continue to be the gold standard in Punjabi folk music even today, more than seventy five years after being originally recorded.

Her husband, Prakash Singh Sodhi, a professor of Punjabi Literature at Delhi University was very supportive of her career as a singer, and encouraged her to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) and make a mark for herself in the Hindi film industry. She came to Bombay in 1948, and immediately got a break, with music director Ghulam Haider giving her a chance to sing three songs in the film ‘Shaheed’. During the next four years, till 1952, she recorded more than fifty four songs in Hindi films. And then took a decision to return to Delhi. The reason that was cited was a disagreement with the climate of Bombay.

She was conferred the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for Punjabi Folk Music in 1984, by the Sangeet Natak Academi, the Millennium Punjabi Singer award, and Padma Shri award in January 2006 for her contribution in Arts. The Guru Nanak Dev University conferred on her a doctorate degree in the year 2002.

Later in the year 2006, her health took a turn for the worse, and she went to United States for treatment, and to be with her daughters who are settled there. Her condition worsened and she passed away in a New Jersey hospital on 14th June, 2006. She was 77 years old.

Each of the songs that she has sung in Hindi films is a gem. The tone and character of her voice is so distinct, and her diction carries a touch of north India, and Punjab in particular. I present today this wonderful song from the 1948 film ‘Naao’. The lyrics are from the pen of DN Madhok and the music is from the mind of Gyan Dutt.

A song that tells of the state of the heart of the lady, whose beau is leaving for distant lands. The words and their rendition is simply too good –

तुम तो चले हो लगी तोड़ के
हम कित जाएँ

you are departing, breaking this alliance of hearts
alas, where can I go

 

Listen to this lovely melody, and the wonderful rendition – the voice of Surinder Kaur.

[Note: The lyrics of this song have been sent by dear Prakashchandra ji.]

Song – Tum Ho Na Ho Hamaare, Hum Ho Gaye Tumhaare (Naao) (1948) Singer – Surinder Kaur, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Gyan Dutt

Lyrics (provided by Prakashchandra)

o ji o ji dil sataaye hum ko

kya jaadu kar daare
o lo ji hum ho gaye tumhaare
ab ho o o oo dil na dukhaana

Today’s song is “Prabhat Vandana” from the film ‘Sant Janabai’ (1949).

This post from me is coming after a gap of 30+ days. Luckily the gap was divided in October and November months. I did not want to create a record of missing a full Calendar month, therefore I am sending this post in November. The last time such a big gap occurred was also in October/November months of 2017. Looks like I have to be careful in these two months since both times the cause of the gap was my health issues. But then, at the age of 82 years, these things are unavoidable. After this post again, there will be a gap in my posts as I will be busy with my grandson’s marriage in the first week of December. Then onward hopefully, I will continue my posts as regularly as before this gap.

Today’s song is like a “Prabhatiya” of Gujarat. It is sung in the early hours of the day, presumably as the first thing in the morning, praising God. Indians, in general, are very religious minded. While some may openly do things proclaiming their inclinations – like singing Bhajans, visiting temples, following religious traditions etc; there are , however, people who follow religion in their behavior and thoughts. The greatest advantage of the Hindu religion is that there are several ways of doing Bhakti and one can choose and follow what is possible for him.

According to Bhagwat Geeta and Vishnu Puran, there are 9 forms of Bhakti one can follow as per his wishes. They are….

1. Shrawan ( श्रवण ) Listening to Divine name like King Parikshit
2. Keertan ( कीर्तन ) Glorify God by discourse Like saint Tyagaraj
3. Smaran (स्मरण ) Remembering God by meditation Like Bhakt Pralhad
4. Paad Sewa (पाद सेवा ) Service at the feet of God Like Lakshmi Devi
5. Archana (अर्चना ) Worship for blessings doing Pooja
6. Vandana (वंदना ) Prostration before God doing Sashtang Namaskar
7. Dasya (दास्य ) Service to God Like Hanuman
8. Sakhya (सख्य ) Being friendly to God Like Arjun
9. Atma Nivedan (आत्म निवेदन ) Self Surrender like Meerabai

This is called Nav vidha Bhakti (नव विधा भक्ती ). Each method carries the same weightage. This has been followed since Vaidik times.

During the foreign attacks and cruel rulers, a wake up call to people of India was by means of the Bhakti Movement from 1300 to 1600 AD. This produced many saints and social reformers from Kanya Kumari to Kashmir and from Gujarat to Assam. Saints appeared in all areas of India. During the Bhakti Movement, almost all regions had their own Saints and great Bhakts. Maharashtra has been known to be a well developed modern state, boasting of an Education centre (Pune) as well as a commercial hub center (Mumbai). It is also a lucky state because it had many saints and social reformers from every strata of society. While Ramdas and Dnyaneshwar were Bramhins, other saints belonged to the different castes. Here are some names of saints in Maharashtra….

Tukaram – Baniya, Janabai-House maid, Namdev-Tailor, Gor kumbhar-Potter, Narhari Sonar-Goldsmith, Chokha Mela-Gardener, Soyrabai- Harijan, Eknath-Warkari, Rohidas-Cobbler, Savta Maali-Gardener, Banka Mahar- harijan, Sant Bhagu-Harijan, Kanhopatra- Dancing girl, Sant Sakhu- Harijan Housewife, Sena Nhavi- Barber, Pundalik-Backward etc.

Bhakti movement started in Tamilnadu in the 6th century and spread northwards from 15th to 17th century. Sant Janabai was one of such Saints. The story of the film was….

Jana, a little girl whose mother before dying told her to go to Pandharpur where she will be protected by Lord Vitthal, A merchant who is the father of Sant Namdev accidentally steps on Jana’s hand and asks for her forgiveness. He asks what she was doing in the temple alone, she tells him her story, being a good devotee of Vitthal he adopts her.

Little Namdev likes her from the instant he sees her and accepts her as his elder sister with joy. But the mother of Namdev wasn’t too happy with another person being in the family, but later she too melts to the love and simplicity of the little girl who would become a great saint as we know today.

Jana was assigned the work of washing the clothes by Namdev’s mother. Jana and Namdev hear a group of pilgrims singing in praise of Lord Vitthal and they start singing and dancing. Children in the group who are very thirsty run to Janabai to beg for water from her. “There are many wells in the village, go get your own water” says Namdev. “But we are outcasts, nobody gives us water” says one of the pilgrims.

Janabai pours them water from her pot, the satisfied devotees bless her for giving them water to drink. She gets scolded and beaten by Namdev’s mother for her act of charity towards the outcasts, which was considered a terrible thing during those times.

Namdev being a very devotional man, always sings and dances and forgets the duties of a householder. Janabai works hard for the food of Namdev’s family (wife and two children). Janabai prays to Vitthal for the food, when Vitthal gives her food she only takes what she needs for a day or two.

Namdev had a big debt to be settled, but he was on a pilgrimage to North India. The wealthy man who had lent him money decides to take Namdev’s property into possession. Jana pleads with him and agrees that she would pay all the money back. Jana works night and day to gather the money she needs.

One night she was very tired and fell asleep while working, but when she wakes up she sees a blanket on her and also sees that the work has been finished. Next night she pretends to be sleeping so that she could catch the person who did it. As soon as she sleeps she sees Lord Vitthal appear and do her work for her.

She catches him while working, from then on Lord Vitthal helps her in her work, he sings for her. He fetches water for her and does many things around.

One day Lord Vitthal feels very tired, seeing that Jana puts him to sleep. In the morning when he wakes up, he walks back to the temple with the blanket around his body, his ornament falls from his neck and falls on the floor of Janabai’s house.

In the morning when priests see the statue of Lord Vitthal they come to the conclusion that somebody must have stolen the ornament of Lord. They see a blanket nearby and assume it must belong to the thief. They start questioning everyone to find out to whom that belonged.

Janabai tells them that it belonged to her, priests search her house and when they find the ornament they accuse her of the theft, she tells them that the Lord was sleeping in her house yesterday and he must have left the ornament. People laugh at her, and thinking of her to be a liar, they decide to hang her to death.

They march her on streets, and just before the time to kill her, she prays to Lord Vitthal and he appears to save her. All people bow to Janabai.

This was a film made by Prabhat Film company, which was sinking day by day. After V Shantaram left it in 1942, the company survived by making several Devotional movies which gave money to the company, but could not save it. In fact, the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was the last film made by Prabhat Film company. After this the company was locked out. The Prabhat Studio and its property were auctioned in 1952 and the once famous company Prabhat was closed for ever on 13-10-1953.

Most of the devotional films made by Prabhat were written by GD Madgulkar- who was a famous writer of Marathi. The story and the screenplay of the film ‘Sant Janabai’ was also written by Madgulkar. He wrote some of the famous films of Hindi cinema in later years. He was an accomplished actor also and had acted in several Marathi and Hindi films.

Gajanan Digambar Madguḷkar (1 October 1919 – 14 December 1977) was a Marathi poet, lyricist, writer and actor. He was born in village Shetphal, Atpadi Taluka, Sangli district in Maharashtra. His family hailed from village Madgule in the same Taluka.

He is popularly known in his home state of Maharashtra by just his initials as Ga Di Ma (गदिमा). He was awarded Sangeet Natak Akademi Award in 1951 and Padma Shri in 1969. He has written 157 screen plays and over 2000 songs in his career. He was called Adhunik Valmiki (the modern Valmiki) of the current era due to his composition of Geet Ramayan (Ramayana in Songs) as the most notable work. 2019 was celebrated as his Birth Century year. The Government of Maharashtra hosted various events and festivals to grace the occasion.

Madgulkar wrote poetry, short stories, novels, autobiographies and scripts, dialogues and lyrics for Marathi as well as Hindi movies. His poems have been adapted to a wide range of musical forms such as Sugam-Sangeet (light music), Bhav-Geet (emotional songs), Bhakti-Geet (devotional songs), and Lawani (a genre of folk songs in Maharashtra). Madgulkar entered the world of movies in 1938 at Kolhāpur. He contributed to 157 Marathi and 25 Hindi movies. He was also an artist. He loved to paint nature scenes. Special mention must be made for the films, ‘Jeewan Jyoti’ (1953) Screenplay and dialogues, ‘Toofan aur Diya’ (1956) – story, and ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957) -story, screenplay and dialogues.

A noteworthy fact about Madgulkar is that during his peak period in Marathi films, he created a World Record. He teamed up with Music Director Sudhir Phadke and director Raja Paranjape. Together, as a team, they gave a total of 11 Hit films in a row in 18 years – from 1948 to 1966 … a record for a Team. He had knowledge of 10 languages including Marathi, Hindi, English, Urdu, Bengali, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu.

Madgulkar was married to Vidya (Padma Patankar, Kolhapur) and they had 3 sons (Shridhar, Anand, Sharad Kumar) and 4 daughters (Varsha, Kalpalata, Deepa, Shubhada). The popular Marathi writer, Vyankatesh Madgulkar was his younger brother. His home in Pune (‘Panchavati Bungalow’) has become a place of attraction for his fans.

I was based in Poona during the period 1974 to 1976. In this period one of my local friends took me to Madgulkar’s bungalow and introduced me. When Madgulkar came to know that I hailed from Hyderabad, he was very excited and asked me several questions. I spent about 4-5 hours with him and had lunch also with him, on his repeated insistence. He was a good conversationalist and loved to talk and listen. I will never forget this meeting. Those days he was not keeping good health.

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and chorus. Written by Narendra Sharma, it was composed by Sudhir Phadke. It is quite inspiring.

Uma Devi the singer – most people, especially of the more recent generations may not even recognize this name. And if they are film buffs, they may surely be familiar with the comedienne Tun Tun. However, they may not connect these two names to the same person.

Remembering Uma Devi on her remembrance day today. She left this world on 24th November in the year 2003, at the age of 80.

As a singer, we see her active from 1946 to 1959. The earliest reference as a singer is from the film ‘Wamiq Azra’ of 1946. And her last singing assignment is for the 1959 films ‘Jungle King’ and ‘Hero No. 1’.

As an actress, rather as a comedienne, she started appearing on screen from the 1950 film ‘Babul’. And she continued to be active till 1990. The last film she appeared on screen is ‘Dhandhe Ki Kasam’. In the 1950s and 1960s she was quite popular presence in Hindi films. During her career she teamed with many male counterparts such as Bhagwan Dada, Agha, Sunder, Mukri, Dhumal, Johnny Walker and Keshto Mukherjee. In the span of four decades, she appeared in about 200 films.

The song that I bring on board today is from a lesser known film of 1949. The film name is ‘Sumitra’. The names of the lyricist and music director are given, however both are completely  unfamiliar. Checking through the Geet Kosh I find that this is the only film where these two names are appearing. The lyricist is KF Contractor and the music director is HD Subham. I request our more knowledgeable readers to please add more information about these artists.

This is a love song in which the lady is expressing her feelings of being completely captured by love. A rare and very less heard / unheard song.

Song – Teri Preet Ne Tadpaaya (Sumitra) (1949) Singer – Uma Devi, Lyrics – KF Contractor, MD – HD Subham

Lyrics

teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
jaane kaise jeet liya o tu ne mera jiya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
tere bina mera jiya chain nahin laage piya
preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
chaar aankhon ne mil kar dil se
kar leen dil ki baaten
kar leen dil ki baaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
aao aapas mein ab to kar len
do dil ki mulaqaaten
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
teri preet ne tadpaaya
pardesiya.. mera sab kuchh chheen liya

तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
परदेसिया॰॰ मेरा सब कुछ छीन लिया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
परदेसिया॰॰ मेरा सब कुछ छीन लिया

जाने कैसे जीत लिए ओ तूने मेरा दिल
जाने कैसे जीत लिए ओ तूने मेरा दिल
तेरे बिना मेरा जिया चैन नहीं लागे पिया
तेरे बिना मेरा जिया चैन नहीं लागे पिया
प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
परदेसिया॰॰ मेरा सब कुछ छीन लिया

चार आँखों ने मिल कर दिल से
चार आँखों ने मिल कर दिल से
कर लीं दिल की बातें
कर लीं दिल की बातें
आओ आपस में अब तो कर लें
आओ आपस में अब तो कर लें
दो दिल की मुलाकातें
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
परदेसिया॰॰ मेरा सब कुछ छीन लिया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
तेरी प्रीत ने तड़पाया
परदेसिया॰॰ मेरा सब कुछ छीन लिया
