Geeta Dutt – Solos and Duets (05)
———————————–————–
Among the first few songs, I had selected for posting in this series, is this group song, with folksy tune. The film is Chaalbaaz(1958), the music is composed by Chitragupt and lyricist is Prem Dhawan. The title of the film evokes memories of Late Sridevi and her double role and the comic act in the film of same title in the year 1989.

The song is a brief one for a group song and the lyrics are very colourful, and not just because of the color-coding. Reminds me of a famous song, a truet of Lata-Rafi-Mukesh, with choruses and Rafi Sahab’s alaaps Ramaiyya vastavaiyya ramaiyya vastavaiyya. This is called a famous song, and we know all about this one.

Present song is not so famous one, but for all I know it might have been a hit and popular one in 1958. Singers are Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar. I found it last year on youtube and saved it for this series, as it sounded folksy and peppy, with the clap sounds enhancing the enjoyment. Apart from ‘Qawwali’ the ‘tappa’ genre and other folk forms use the clap as a rhythmic addition in the song, which must be enjoyable for those not actually singing or playing music instrument, as they can also participate. Hindi film songs are a dime a dozen for using ‘claps’ in songs.

A few such songs (non-Qawwali) which come to mind :
Laara lappa laara lappa laai rakhdaa
Na munh chhupaa ke jiyo
Iss duniya mein jeena hai to
Ye chaand ra roshan chehraa
Purvaa suhaani aayi re

Also there are many ‘garba’ songs which had women dancing with accompanying hand claps.

These 4 songs out of 7 are posted in the blog:

I have found a pdf file containing list of all hindi film songs by Geeta Dutt. But I dont know a way of sorting data, if it is possible in pdf file. I will try to get it converted in excel, that will make it easy to sort data. For example, we can know how many songs Geeta Dutt sang for Chitragupt in her career.
Atulji is doing a great job of collating information of all Lata mangeshkar’s songs year wise viz-a-viz songs posted in the blog. I can see that a similar collation of data is possible with a list of all songs of Geeta Dutt, with the help of this pdf file.

Okay, I found a way. I searched and found 94 times Chitragupt’s name in the pdf list of Geeta Dutt’s songs.
So here goes the stats:

Today’s song is a duet from film Uski Tamanna aka Her last desire-39. Have you ever heard about this film ? I have also never known this film. But then, barring a few well known, successful film names, one really does not know any other film names in a specific year. Majority of films are like this only.

The year was 1939 and the British Government had declared war against Germany and japan, as soon as the WW II began. All countries ruled by Britain were – willingly or unwillingly, drawn into the war efforts and its effects. The war began in the month of September and soon various restrictions came into operation – like rationing, blackouts, shortages etc. The film industry which was still under its development stage suffered. It also realised the importance of remaining united as one industry. However, all that came after 1 or 2 years. In 1939 there was not much effect seen on the film industry.

The industry had its own problems. In spite of the playback system in operation, their problem was that because there was no technique of recording from the film negative yet, the singers had to sing twice. Once for the actual film shooting of the song, and later, with the same set of orchestra, for commercial records. Sometimes, the original singer was not available due to any reason, some other singer had to sing for commercial records. Thus we have many such examples, where the singer in the film song and the record is different. However, this problem continued only till mid 50’s when the Tape and the required technique became available. With just one time recording, the film and commercial recording were taken care of.

Khemchand Prakash. K.Datta (Datta Koregaonkar), Rafiq Ghaznavi and Anupam Ghatak made their Debut as Music Directors. Kavi Pradeep wrote his first film song for film Kangan. In 1939, 2 most Unusual songs were presented, for the first time ( and this record is not yet broken even after more than 80 years.). One was a Multi-Lingual song from film Aadmi-39, a film by Prabhat….Kis liye kal ki baat. This song was in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Gujarati, Bangla, Tamil and Telugu. ( In its Marathi film version-” माणूस “, this song was only in one language-Marathi.) Different Lyricists and MDs were used for each language. The song became very popular.

Second unusual song was from film ‘ Ghareeb ka Laal’-1939. The song lyrics had the names of 32 artistes, operating in Hindi films that time. Top Heroes and Heroines were mentioned in this song. The beginning of the song was ” Tuze Bibbo kahoon ya Sulochana, Uma shashi kahoon ki Jamuna “. This song was sung by the comedian Mirza Musharraf. In later years many songs with film artistes’ names came but none had so many names. Thus this record is still unbroken, in case of both songs.

Besides these songs, let us quickly take a look at some films of 1939….

Aadmi – Prabhat’s hit film, a remake of the Marathi film ” माणूस “. It had some good songs by Shanta Hublikar, Sundarabai Jadhav and Ram Marathe.

Adhuri Kahani – a trend of Tragedy films set by the effect of film ‘Devdas’. All the 3 main characters of this film commit suicide in the end.

Badi Didi – A New Theatres film.

Brandy ki Botal – Master Vinayak’s comedy remake of Marathi film ‘ ब्रॅंडीची बाटली ‘.

Dil hi to hai – Debut of Kidar Sharma as a Director and Ramola as a Heroine in a Hindi film.

Dushman – New Theatres’ film of Saigal, with only his 4 songs.

Ek hi Raasta – Sagar presents first film with 3 Heroes in one film.

Ghazi Salauddin – Debut of Khemchand Prakash as M.D.

Hukum ka Ikka – First film with a Triple role by Umakant Desai ( who later specialised as Lakshman in 7 films, including Ramrajya-43).

Imaandaar – Debut of actress Shamim Akhtar.

India in Africa – This was the First Hindi film to be shot abroad (in Africa). The Hero B. Nandrekar had also gone to Africa for its shooting. Naaz-54 was not the first such film, though HFGK mentions it so.( Ref – pp 69, Maharashtra-The Birthplace of Indian cinema by Isak Mujawar)

Kangan – First of the 4 Hit films of Ashok kumar and Leela Chitnis, made by Bombay Talkies. Kavi Pradeep’s Debut as a Lyricist in this film.

Kapal kundala – New Theatres. Pankaj mullick’s hit song ‘ Piya milan ko jaana ‘.

Leather Face – Debut of Meena kumari as a child artiste.

Navjeevan – Debut of Hansa Wadkar as a Heroine- Bombay Talkies film.

Pukar – Hit film from Minerva Movietone. Naseem Bano sings ” Zindagi ka saaz bhi kya saaz hai….”

Film Uski Tamanna aka Her last desire-1939 was directed by Yakub and the music was by Anupam Ghatak. he was employed by Sagar movietone and gave music to its 6 films.he was one artiste who died quite young.

The music Director Anupam Ghatak – the second-generation Bengali-Hindi composer (after Rai Chand Boral and Pankaj Mullick) was born in 1911 at Mymensingh(now in Bangladesh). He took music lessons from father Atul Ghatak and Keshav Ganesh Dhekan. He became an excellent Flautist. After a short stint in AIR,as a singer in 1930, he joined as assistant to Bishen Chand Boral (brother of Raichand Boral) and later to R C Boral himself for Vidyapati-1937
First independent film score: Payer Dhulo. Later worked at Sagar Film in Bombay, composing Zia Sarhadi’s Bhole Bhale and a series of films for Badami, Luhar et al. (1939). Returned to Calcutta, notably for Barua’s Shapmukti; thereafter had assignments in both Calcutta and Lahore. Known for his wide range, from the sentimental Ekti paisa dao go babu in Shapmukti to the experimental Gane more kon indradhanu in Agni Pareeksha.

His Hindi film career started with ‘Tarzan ki Beti-38 and Bhole Bhale-39. He gave music to only 17 Hindi films, which included Ladies Only, Service Ltd.,Sadhana, Uski tamanna, Civil marriage, Sri Ramanuj etc. In Lahore he did Champa, Badnami and Shalimar, before Partition. His last Hindi film was Shamsheer, which was released only in 1953,after he died in 1947 itself.

The cast of the film was Yakub, Maya Banerjee, Jyoti, Bhudo Advani, Putlibai etc etc. The name Putlibai may be unknown to many. There was a famous dacoit in Chambal Ghati, by this name in the decade of the 50’s, but actress Putlibai has no connection with that. Mothers and daughters acted as leading ladies in the same era….Miss Putli or Putlibai and Miss Gohar Mamajiwala (the term Miss was used not merely to state the marital status of the leading ladies of those days)….

Like Miss Sharifa and Husna Banu , Putli and Gohar were mother and daughter. Putli was an accomplished actress of the silent screen who championed in the Talkies because of her extraordinary singing talents. Gohar was born in 1910 and entered the screen in 1926, where her mother Miss Putli too entered more or less the same time. Information about Miss Putli is very limited however, Gohar became India’s popular iconic star and is still remembered today.

Miss Putli acted in 33 Talkie films. Her first Talkie was Ratan Manjiri-35 and her last film was Dhoke baaz-46. She sang one song each in the film Lehri Badmash-44 and Dhokebaaz-46.

Today’s song is a duet sung by Harish and Maya Banerjee. With this song, film Uski Tamanna makes its Debut on our Blog. Including this film, my last 5 posts were from films which made Debut on the Blog. Today’s rare song was given to me by shri Abhay Jain ji (USA) and was uploaded kindly by our Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.

Today’s song is from the film Iqrar-42. This was just one of the many films- coming out of Ranjit’s factory. It was like their emphasis was on churning out films in quantity. They were not much worried about the quality of the films, it would seem to the observer. As such the number of hit and successful films coming out of Ranjit was certainly not very high, unlike New Theatres, Bombay Talkies or Prabhat.

Of course, one knows that there is no formula for successful films. It is also true that A grade actors, well known composers and famous directors alone do not make a hit film. In my opinion, a strong storyline forms a base for good films. That coupled with either factors, enhances the chances of such films being successful at the box office.

In the early 30’s films from new Theatres became successful mainly because their films had strong storylines. Bombay Talkies films of the late 30s and early 40’s became successful due to fresh faces and simple music and songs. Prabhat films had a combination of strong story, social reform subjects and quality actors and directors, which made them successful.

A common thread for these companies was the total involvement of the owners in their business. This, precisely, was the weak point of companies like Sagar and Ranjit. Their owners got engaged in family problems and their Gambling habits. The first to go down was Sagar and Ranjit followed suit when Chandulal Shah lost more than a Crore of rupees in just one deal of ‘Satta’. That is a sad story, anyway.

In 1942, when the industry was having a great shake up, Ranjit had 6 films ready for release and 6 films on floors. You can imagine why Ranjit was called a ‘Factory’ ! Indian film industry has always been alive to the happenings in the country and reflects the national problems and important events in our films.1942 was an year when the II World War was on its peak and it had caused a severe food shortage in the world. Italy had made a silent film ‘Greed’ on this issue. Based on it.Mehboob Khan made a film , Roti’ in India. Mehboob was a socialist and a Nehruvian to the core and so his films like,Mother India or Son Of India were made on socialistic principles. In 1942,Ramchandra Thakur also directed one such film,’Gareeb’.

In India, the Congress had started its Quit India movement, but in our Film Industry it was a Quit studio movement. Many well known film artistes, directors, composers and other related staff moved over to new pastures. 1942, in a sense, became an overhauling of the Film industry with so much movement of people. The following activities changed the scenario to a great extent.

1. A group of disgruntled people in Bombay Talkies, comprising of Rai Bahadur Chunilal, Shashadhar mukherjee, Ashok Kumar, Sawak Vachha and few of their followers left Bombay Talkies, after disagreements with Devika Rani and formed their own outfit – Filmistan.
2. Mehboob Khan separated from National studios and established his own Mehboob Productions. This was also the time when Mehboob and Anil Biswas separated from each others due to some differences.
3. Abdul Rasheed Kardar established his own Kardar studios.
4. V.Shantaram, along with his team left Prabhat- an institution which he established and made a famous one by his directorial contribution. He first joined the Films division and then started his own Raj Kamal Kala Mandir.
5. Wadia Movietone split and the brothers separated. While JBH Wadia, the elder brother, wanted that their company should start making only Social films now, the younger Homi Wadia wanted to continue with Stunt and Action films. He started his own Basant Pictures. Wadia’s star performer Fearless Nadia went with Homi Wadia, whom she married yew years later.
6. Calcutta’s New Theatres started showing signs of disintegration and Debki Bose,P C Barua etc left the New Theatres. Debaki Bose made Apna Ghar’ in Bombay. K L Saigal left new Theatres to do films in Bombay . He did Ranjit’s Bhakta Surdas’ and ‘ Bhanwra’. He of course went back to Calcutta to do a few more films,before coming back to Bombay for Shahjehan and Pawana. He did not/could not go back to Calcutta,as he died after Parwana-47. Saigal, while recording song ‘ Nainheen ko raah dikha” in Bhakta Surdas, did 14 retakes in recordings. His younger brother Mohan Saigal acted as Shri Krishna in this film and he is heard saying” Surdas ji” in the song Nis Din barsat Nain hamare.
7. Composer Vasant Desai did his first independent film ” Shobha” as a Music Director.
8. C Ramchandra did his first Hindi film as a composer- Sukhi Jeevan.
9. Ninu Mujumdar became MD with the film Black Out.
10. Kamal Dasgupta started his Hindi career with film Jawab.
11. Lyricist Ramesh Gupta started with the film Awaz.
12. Lyricist Qamar Jalalabadi started with Zamindar
13. Suraiya entered the Playback with songs in Nai Duniya and Sharda.
14. Hemant Kumar sang his first Hindi song in the film Meenakshi-42.
15. Manna Dey first sang a Hindi song in film Tamanna.
16. Jagmohan Sursagar sang in the first Hindi film-Bhakta Kabir.
17. Nurjahan sang her first Hindi film songs in film Khandan-42, in Lahore.
18. Bharat Bhushan’s first film in a leading role was Bhakt Kabir
19. Madhubala started as Baby Mumtaz in film Basant

From Lahore Dalsukh Pancholi repeated his magic with ‘ Khandaan’-42. This time it was Noorjehan who shook the industry with her songs under Ghulam Haider. Films like Bhakt Kabir,Bhakta Surdas, and Bharat Milap kept the Mythology/religious films in limelight. new Theatres,prabhat,Bombay Talkies etc all brought excellent films in 1942. Barring Bhakta Surdas,Roti and Khandan,there was not much competition to Naushad’s Station Master-42 ,in music.Its music became quite popular and the film celebrated Silver Jubilee. Naushad tasted success for the first time in his career in 1942 and 2 of his 3 films in the year celebrated Silver Jubilees. The other film was Nai Duniya-42.

Let us take a look at some important films of 1942….

Film Barat had music by Ratanlal-brother of khemchand Prakash and he himself as Khemraj.

Film Basant- though it has the name of Pannalal Ghosh as MD, as per HFGK, all the songs were composed by Anil Biswas (because he was still under contract with National Studios) and Ghosh had only done Orchestration and background music.

Bhakta Kabir had music by Himangshu Dutt- the first title holder of ” Sursagar”.
Bhakta Surdas- Gyan Dutt gave 15 hit songs of Saigal and Khursheed. In this film Khursheed sang equally well with Saigal.

Bharat Milap- First film in which Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth did the roles of Shri Ram and Seeta, which made them famous all over India.

Chauranghee- the only Hindi film for which Kazi nasrul islam gave music and wrote songs too. It was his debut film. Also Debut for Hanuman prasad Sharma as Md and S.Fazli as Director.

Dus Baje- Debut of Baby Shakuntala.

Iqrar- Last film of actress Madhuri (Beryl Classen). Master Vithal-a professional singer from Sholapur sang his only song in a Hindi film.( not the actor)

Jawab- all songs popular, especially kanan devi’s ” Ye duniya Toofan mail”.

Khandan- Entry of Nur jahan, from Lahore. All her songs are popular.

Muqabala- First Talkie film with double role of Heroine- Nadia. Babhubhai Mistri’s magic in trick scenes.

Nai Duniya- Suraiya’s first song in Hindi film.

Roti- Begum Akhtar’s role and 6 songs.

Savera- First film of Arun Ahuja and Nirmala Devi.

Sharada- Naushad gives good songs.

Station Master- Hit film with songs.

Zamindar- Shanta Apte goes to Lahore all the way

All in all, the year 1942 was an eventful year for the industry. Indian audience enjoyed a variety of Genres in film offerings and a feast of Naushad’s songs, Bhajans and New artistes.

Film Iqrar-42 did not have lilting music or popular songs. It had the usual story of a Love Triangle around Madhuri, for whom this was her last film in the career. After this film she retired from films, got married and simply disappeared from public life. After 50 years, she was searched and discovered by an organisation, for a function to honour the Silent Era artistes – Madhuri and Jairaj. Film Iqrar-42 was directed by Manibhai Vyas and the cast was Madhuri, Motilal, Rama Shukul,Bhagwan Das, Tarabai and many others.

One more interesting actress in the cast was Tarabai. She is none other than the elder sister of famous dancer actress Sitara Devi. Born in 1905, Tara/ Tara Devi / Tarabai was a good dancer. She started film career with Silent films like Malti Madhav, Bambai ki sethani etc. She started Talkie films with Vasantsena-31. She played the role of Princess Octavia in the film Yahudi ki Ladki-33, along with K L Saigal.

She acted in many films like Shehar ka jadu-34, Savitri 37, Narsi Bhagat-40, Sasural -41. She acted in film Haiwaan-40, along with her two other actress sisters,namely Alaknanda and Sitara Devi. This may be the First Hindi film, in which 3 sisters played roles in one film.

It seems the mother of Alaknanda and Tara was different from that of Sitara, but the father was the same-Pt.Sukhdev. Alaknanda and Tara were not their real names. In fact, the real name of Tara/Tarabai was Triveni.

She married co-star Marutirao Pehelwan, left films and they settled in Dhule,in Maharashtra. They started a Dairy business. Their son was the famous dancer Gopi Krishna. Marutirao was already married, still Tara married him. His surname was Gawali (Milkman).

Soon they separated and Tara married a small businessman Sonthalia from Calcutta. We do not know why, but Tarabai returned to Bombay and started working in films. But now she was reduced to a Junior Artiste (Extra) and got only negligible roles. She lived in Bandra slum. There is no information about her after this.

Her son Gopi Krishna (real name Gopal )stayed with his maternal Grandfather, Pt. Sukhdev, who trained him in Dancing. Gopikrishna came to Bombay, with the name Gopikrishna Sonthaliya and stayed with Sitara Devi, but he was soon thrown out. He spent bad days,staying in chawl etc, before he became famous as a Choreographer and actor. ( some new information from RMIM forum, with thanks.)

Today’s song is sung by one Master Vithal of Sholapur. His real name was Vithal Channa. He used to sing Saigal’s songs and did many mehfils privately, to earn a living. This is his only song in a Hindi film. With this song he makes a Debut on this Blog, with all his songs covered !

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a club dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Today’s song is a rare song from a C grade Stunt film-Khooni Laash-43. This film was made by Amrit pictures. The name of Producer or the Director of this film is not mentioned in HFGK. This is one of the several problems of the C grade Stunt/ Action films, made on shoestring budgets. Most times the film booklet was not issued and in maximum cases the song records were also not issued commercially. In some films, selected songs are available on records. In the cast also only 4 names are given. The music director was K.Narayan Rao.

K. Narayan Rao is known to be a composer of C grade action/stunt films. No book or Encyclopedia gives information about his Bio data. All the information is available only via the HFGK only.

The first film of K Narayan Rao seems to be Madari Mohan-40, where he joined hands with another composer Prof. B R Deodhar. In 1943 he gave music to Pistolwali,Khazanchi Ka beta,Khooni Laash and Duniya Deewani.In 44,it was Lehri Cameraman and Qatil. In 46,he gave music to Royal mail, Khooni, Reporter, Maaf Kijiyega and Dhokebaaz. In 47-Extra Girl, Chabuk sawar and Sher E Bangal. In 48-Bahadur Naresh, Jungle Goddess, and white Face. 1949-Jagriti, Nakli Baap, Chunnu Munnu and Billi. 1950- Meri Asha and Meherbani. Then in 1959 came his last film with Lacchhiram- Hazar Pariyan. Thus he gave music to 25 films, but not even one film was a Hit, nor was any of his songs famous.

People like Narayan Rao reflect the kind of artistes that were used in C grade films. The audience of such films was typical. They were not worried about the film story or the songs. All that they looked for was sensational dangerous stunts, fighting, a little raw comedy and a reasonably good looking Heroine. With these basic requirements, stunt films did not need well known actors, MDs, Directors or story writers. These films touched the baser emotions of the audience which was generally the lower strata of the society, daily earners and uneducated lot.

Most of us like to see films, be it on a TV, in a cinema hall, or through DVD. Some like old films, some like new films.

Did you ever see films like, Khooni Khanzar, Dagabaj Doctor, Shaitaan ka paash, Char chakram, Daku Rani Talwarwali, Jaadu ka dandaa, Zinda Laash, Revolver Rani, Sindbad-Alladin-Alibaba, Flying man, Fighter Sheela, Khooni Darinda, Tarzan aur Jadugar, Tarzan aur Jadui Chiraag, Golden Gang, Murde ki jaan khatare mein,or Jadui putli ?

I bet none of these movie names have been even heard by you ever. These were all STUNT FILMS or in other words ‘C’ grade films.

In India I really wonder how the classification or Grading of films was done, or who was the person or the body authorised to do it. Censor Certificates do not label A B or C grades at all. Then how does this happen ?

My guess is that films are graded on 2 counts- One, The cost of production or Budget and the class of stars in it and Two, The class of people for whom the film is made or directed, like the Rich, middle and the Poor class. Whatever the basis, there is a very thin line between A and B grade films, while between these two and the C grade films, the line is very Bold and thick indeed !

Stunt films, Costume films, fantasy films and purely Religious films were normally treated as C grade films. These film did not carry any prestige, the actors working in them were exclusive to C grade films, the production values and the budget was quite low and most important, they were ALWAYS shown in theatres situated in older parts of the town, single screens, or only for Morning shows or in Theatres generally frequented by lower strata of society.

A person seeing/loving or craving for such films was generally considered a ‘Low’ creature and a person with ‘child brain’.

In India ,this was the fate of C grade films. Actually these films had everything that A and B grade films had, like, story, songs, dances, fights etc, but still, the treatment given to handling of the story etc in the films was very poor or lacking in expertise.

Stunts have improved, Technology has evolved but the participation of Zippy the Monkey, Tiger the Horse, Moti the Dog, parrots, snakes and khatara cars named Rolls Royce ki beti and Austin ki Bachhi is missing ! The contribution of Fearless Nadia in making Stunt films popular can not be denied, but then she had the backing of companies like Wadia Movietone, Basant Pictures, Ranjit, Sagar, National etc. When you read the stories of these films please don’t employ Logic or common sense to it.
This was a different world altogether. The set of actors was fixed, many times the composers were unheard of or they were known composers now in bad shape, the Directors were typical and the production houses were exclusive to churn out such films.

It is, nevertheless, a fact that many well known and famous actors and actresses of the 40s and 50s evolved from the stunt films of yore. Examples are Jairaj or Master Bhagwan.Can you believe that this roly-poly Bhagwan dada was a great body-builder when he started in stunt films in the late 20s and 30s ? Lalita Pawar(Amboo), Madhuri, Rampyari, Miss Moti, Sabita Devi, and Sulochana (Ruby Myers) are some female examples who graduated to Social films via Stunt films.

C grade films were those films which were made by not so famous banners, almost unknown actors directors and composers. Usually C grade films used to be action/stunt films, made on shoestring budgets, having a fixed storyline resembling Tarzan, Hercules or Hollywood action films of Robin Hood, with the background of a jungle, Tribal people, King-Queen-wicked Vazir and similar stories.

C grade films were always quickies, made on shoe-string budgets. During the late 30s and 40s, Master Bhagwan action films used to be completed in about Rs. 50,000 only- including studio rent, sets, artistes’ fees and other expenses. C grade films had a captive audience comprising factory workers, daily wagers, Low grade earners and students. However, such films used to rake in big profits to the film makers. Therefore, even top class banners sometimes made C grade films, to make up their losses in big film flops.

There were certain production houses specialised and thriving on such films, like Paramount films, Jagriti films, Mohan pictures, Wadia Movietone etc etc. The actors and actresses of such films were fixed. Since the studio system was in vogue, the film studios usually had their actors and directors fixed. Music directors were of no consequence, so anybody would do. Well known composers like C.Ramchandra used to take another name while composing music for C grade action films. Music assistants of famous composers used to give music to such films. Well known composers falling on bad days also gave music to such films. C grade films rarely made Commercial records for their film songs, so such songs are a real rarity even with big collectors.

Some common and regular names one found in Action/Stunt films are, Nadia, Boman Irani, Sayani, Bilimoria bros, Cooper sisters, Zohra Khatun, Ameena Khatun, Khatun Bai, Prakash, Adjania, Noorjehan (sr.), Moosa Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan, Azim bhai, Basheer, Ali, Bachha, Chandra Rao, Harishchandra Rao, Shankar Rao, Master Bhagwan, Mirajkar, Jamshed, John Cavas, Lalita Pawar, Navin chandra…and many such names.

Barring a few names like Lalita Pawar, Bhagwan, Nadia etc, all the other action film actors remained unknown. No one knows anything about them.Actors like Baburao pehelwan, Marutirao Pehelwan ( He was the Hero in the First Gujarati Talkie film ‘ Narsi Mehta ‘), Chandra Rao, Sayani etc were quite famous in their times, but except their Filmography (thanks to HFGK), nothing more is known about them. All of them ended with only mere names !

Sometimes Gems were found in these C grade films. Remember the famous qawali- Hamen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne- which had the honour of becoming the prestigious 5000th song in this Blog ? This was from a C grade film- AL HILAL-58

In my young age I was fond of stunt films and used to travel to theatres in Old city of Hyderabad, to watch films featuring Kamran (father of famous choreographer and Director Farah khan and Director, comedian, Anchor Sajid Khan), Naazi, Bhagwan and many such actors.” Adventures of captain marvel and Trip to the Moon” were my favourites from Hollywood’s Republic Serial productions.

In the 50s and 60s,some respectability to these stunt films was brought by actors like Mahipal, Ranjan, Dara Singh, Azad, Hemant Birje etc. The set of Heroines was also set to Mumtaz, Tabassum,Vijaya Chaudhary, Indira, Nishi etc. Mumtaz started with Stunts and graduated to greater heights and was counted in Top actresses of her days. Costume and Stunt films like Baaz, Insaniyat and Azaad etc were made respectable by the stars acting in them.Interestingly, some famous actresses like Meena Kumari, Shobhana Samarth,Nirupa Roy, etc had acted in stunt C grade films initially.

Over a period the picture changed and nowadays every alternate film has breath-taking stunts done by almost all top Heroes, thanks to SFX, of course !

I am not aware about the film’s story or other details. The cast shown in HFGK is Baburao (Pehalwan), Shanta Rin, E.Bilimoria and Ali. Obviously Eddie Bilimoria was the hero and Shanta Rin must have been the Heroine. Dinshaw and Eddie Billimoria were the brothers who were active from silent films upto films of 50’s decade through the Talkie era, but they always featured in C grade films and hence even their long careers did not make them big stars.

Today’s song from this film is sung by Naseem Akhtar. In fact this was her first hindi film in Bombay for which she sang songs. Naseem Akhtar ‘s father was a Sarangi player. They were originally from Kashmir. She was born in 1924. She started singing on Lahore Radio. Impressed with her singing style,composer pt. Amarnath gave her a break in Nishani-1942. Till then she used to sing at rich people’s functions and mehfils etc. after Nishani,she came to Bombay to sing for Khooni Laash-43.She never acted in any films.She sang in Bhai, Ek din ka Sultan, 40 karod, Flat no.9, Pehli nazar, Ratnavali, Dharma, Sanyasi, Wamiq Azra, Tadbir, Shahjehan, Nek Parveen, Safar, Keemat, Sohni Mahiwal, Bhanwar, Ek Roz, Doli, Parai aag etc. She sang for Naushad, Ghulam Mohd, Anil Biswas, Shyamsunder, Ghulam Hyder, Rafiq Gaznavi, Govind Ram, Sajjad Hussain, Firoze Nizami and C.Ramchandra.

She sang 72 songs in 40 films in India. She left for Pakistan after Partition and sang in a few films, but was not successful. She got married and settled as a housewife. It seems she died in Lahore on 11-5-2007 at the age of 87 years.

With this song, film Khooni Laash-1943 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Kaahe ko pardesiya se aankh tu ladaaye (Jai Shree)(1956) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Lata, Lyrics-Gopal Singh Nepali, MD-Chitragupta
Chorus

Lyrics

kaahe ko pardesiya se aankh tu ladaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se
kaahe ko pardesiya se aankh tu ladaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se

o o o
o o o
udta hua panchhi jaane apna thhikaana
udta hua panchhi jaane
udta hua panchhi jaane apna thhikaana
jhoom uthhi main sun ke uska taraana
sakhi uska taraana

jhoom jhoom ke ji kahin sar na ghoom jaaye
sar na ghoom jaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se

o o o
o o o
maine to dekha thha zara yoon hi machal ke
maine to dekha thha zara yoon hi machal ke
nazro ke saath gaya dil hi uchhal ke
sakhi dil hi uchhal ke

kaske rahi jab kamaan
teer kyun chalaaye
teer kyu chalaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se

o o o
o o o
dekhte hi aisa laga
mil chuke hain khwaab mein
dekhte hi aisa laga
dekhte hi aisa laga
mil chuke hain khwaab mein
kuch nahin soojha to sakhi uthh padi jawaab mein
jee uthh padi jawaab mein

pyaar to pehle hansaaye phir hansi udaaye
phir hansi udaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se
kaahe ko pardesiya se aankh tu ladaaye
udta hua panchhi kabhi haath nahin aaye
kaahe ko pardesiya se

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No. 1
———————————————————————————–
Blog Ten year Challenge, which was started in 2019 and which continued in 2020 as well, now enters 2021. This post is the first post for blog ten year challenge (2011-2021).

January 2011 was quite like January 2021, with only one or two songs being posted everyday. Unlike 2021, we already had DOT days in the year 2011 by 11 january 2011. Thankfully, these days I am very particular about avaoiding DOT days at any cost. As a result, the just concluded year 2020 sa NIL DOT days. The only other year in the bloh]g that had NIL DOT days as the year 2017.

This day on 2011 saw only one song being discussed and that song was a song from “Shola Aur Shabnam”(1961) namely Jeet hi lenge baazi ham tum…pyaar ka bandhan toote naa .

“Shola Aur Shabnam”(1961) was directed by Ramesh Sahgal for Parijat Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Tarla, Dharmendra, Abhi Bhattacharya, M Rajan, Mubarak, Vijaylaxmi, Jeeankala, Sulochana, Leela Mishra, Dhumal, Johny hisky, B N Shukla, B Perera, Baby Chandrkala, Master Akashdeep etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs that have been discussed so far:-

Blog post number Song Date of posting
1257 Jaane kyaa dhoondhti rahti hain 10 May 2009
1803 Jeet hi lenge baazi ham tum…pyaar ka bandhan toote naa 25 August 2009
3430 Ladi re ladi tujhse aankh jo ladi 11 January 2011
5983 Phir wohi saawan aayaa 21 May 2012
10393 Mathura Shyaam chale 22 October 201

The song under discussion today is sung by Rafi and Jagjeet Kaur. Khayyam is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to thro light on the picturisation of the song. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of Tarla and Dharmendra.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.


Song-Pehle to aankh milaana (Shola Aur Shabnam)(1961) Singers-Rafi, Jagjeet Kaur, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Khayyaam

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

pehle to aankh milaana
phir thhoda sa sharmaana
sharma ke chale jaana
are waah waah waah wah
haan
pahle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

kaise gori apne dil ki baat labon par laaun
arre kaise gori apne dil ki baat labon par laaun
husn tumhaara bijli jaisa
dekh ke main darr jaaun
main ik hindustani chhori
main kyun pyaar jataaun
main ik hindustani chhori
main kyun pyaar jataaun
itna kar sakti hoon
tujhko dekhoon aur muskaaun

ghoonghat pat ko sarkaana
phir thhoda sa muskaana
muskaa ke chale jana
arre waah waah waah waah
pahle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

in aankhon ko o gori
tu kitni achchi laage
in aankhon ko o gori
tu kitni achchi laage
hum jaison se aakhir kyun tu haath chhudaakar bhaage
jab tu hans kar aankh milaaye
dil ye dhadkan laage
jab tu hans kar aankh milaaye
dil ye dhadkan laage
jee chaahe main sharmaaker dil rakh doon tere aage

pehle ban thhan ke aana
hamen thoda sa tarsaana
tarsaa ke chale jaana
are waah waah waah waah
kamaal hai
pehle to paas bulaana
thhoda sa pyaar jataana
ghabra ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah

pehle to aankh milaana
phir thhoda sa sharmaana
sharma ke chale jaana
arre waah waah waah waah
