Today’s song is from the film Nadi Kinare-1939. The film was released in Pathe Theatre of Bombay on 10-11-1939.

The year 1939 was a landmark year in the history of the world.

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….”

Indian filmmakers had practiced 4 ways of getting stories for their films, since the beginning of Talkie films.

1. Copy from older films
2. copy from other languages or remake them
3. use stories from Foreign films – especially Hollywood and
4. make a mixture of all this and make a film.

Hundreds of films were made on the stories of Alibaba. Alauddin, Sindbad, Thief of Baghdad, Hatimtai, Gul E Bakavali and other stories from the Arabian Nights. Hollywood films made on famous novels or dramas were another source of inspiration. When the Talkie films started, the first such film was made in 1933 itself titled- “Awara Shehzada “, with Shahu Modak as its Hero.This was the first Hindi film based on the famous novel of Mark Twain- The Prince and the Pauper, published in 1881. Films on this ” Look alike” theme were made in Hollywood as early as 1915 and 1920 This theme was used abundently in Hindi films like Ram aur Shyam, Don, Seeta aur Geeta, Kanoon and many more films. The list will be too long.

In 1937 a film ” Duniya kya Hai” was made by Lalita Pawar, based on Count Leo Tolstoy’s famous novel ” Resurrection”, published in 1899. The Hindi film was inspired by the Hollywood film ” We live again” made on this novel. In 1938, prakash pictures made ” Khwaab ki Duniya “. It was inspired by the popular Hollywood film ” The Invisible man”-1933, which was based on the famous novel of same name, by H.G.Wells in 1897. Subsequently many films like Mr. X, Mr. India etc were made in Hindi on this theme.

These are few examples to prove the point. There are umpteen number of such films. Sometimes the story departments of the film strudios play a clever game. They mix up the stories of 2-3 Hollywood films and make a Hindi film. Today’s film ” Nadi Kinare”-1939 was also made based on few scenes and themes from 3 Hollywood films, namely ” The king and the chorus girl”-1937, ” Bluebeard’s eighth wife “-1937 and ” The rage of Paris “-1938.

The film was directed by Manibhai Vyas (27-4-1920 to 14-11-1993). he directed 20 films from Dukhiyari-1937 to Shrikrishna Bhakti-1973. The MD was Gyan Dutt and the cast was Kumar, Sitara Devi,Indubala, Ram Marathe, Kantilal and others.There were 13 songs in the film sung by Indubala, Sitara Devi,Kantilal,Kalyani and Gyan Dutt himself. Lyrics were by P.L.Santoshi and D.N.Madhok.

Actor/singer Ram Marathe had done a child role in this film He is one of those child actors who left film world at the right time and pursued his hobby of classical singing. Consequently he bacame a big name in Classical Music all over India. His case reminds me of anothe child actor-n Shashi kapur Sr, who was much in demand as a child actor during the period 1944 to 1955. he did 21 films as a child actor. Then he left films, completed his M.Sc. and Ph.D. He went to USA and became a Professor of Maths in Michigan University in USA.

Actually many child actors like Baby naaz, M.Kabir, Sarosh Irani, Master Romi etc reached an age when they were neither child nor an adult. They stopped getting any roles and had to leave films. Child actor Ramchandra ( Ram) Marathe was born on 23-10-1924 in Poona and studied in Bhave school up to 10th.He and his brother ( Anant Marathe aka Anant kumar) worked in films as child actors, due to family conditions. They started work from 1936 onwards. Ram Marathe had an edge over his brother,in that he could sing too. Starting with Shahu Chor in 1936, he worked in Sagar movietone (6 films), Ranjit (3 films) and Prabhat (2 films), in addition to other companies like prakash, Mohan Pictures, Imperial etc. he acted as a child star in 16 films. he sang 11 songs in 6 films. After this Ram left films and started training in classical music-his liking. Here is a short bio of Ram Marathe, adapted from meetkalakar.com….

Ramchandra Purshottam Marathe (1924-1989) began his early career as an actor and singer in films produced by the Prabhat company. His formal training in music assumed a definite direction when he came under the tutelage of Master Krishnarao (Phulambrikar). Later, he trained under accomplished musicians such as Mirashibuwa of Gwalior and Vamanrao Sadolikar of Atrauli-Jaipur. His quest for widening his musical horizons culminated in a long-lasting discipleship (15 years) under Jagannathbuwa Purohit (“Gunidas”). As a consequence of his broad training and background, Rambhau’s music integrated the best of Gwalior, Agra and Jaipur styles. Rambhau was a stalwart in the field of Marathi Natya Sangeet. He was also known as a composer. Among his pupils is Ulhas Kashalkar.

Pt.Ram Marathe had performed in all the prestigious musical festivals at various places like Jalandhar, Patna, Lahore, Delhi, Gwalior, Calcutta, Banaras,Amritsar and almost all over Maharashtra. His contribution to Indian classical music was recognized with several Awards for his unique and successful performances. He was “A-top grade” Hindustani Classical Artist of All India Radio.

Since he had undergone proper Tabla training, he had a great command on Taal and Layakari. He had special command on Rare–Anvat Ragas & Jod Ragas and he was highly recognized for his clear and fast tankriyas and also for Purity of Ragas. He always used to enrich his audience with various semi-classical forms like Khayal, Tarana, Tappa, Natyasangeet, Thumri, Dadra & Bhajans in his concerts. Unlike the present classical singers, his concerts used to last more than 5 hours with the powerful intensity and stamina.

He started his stage career under the perusal of Natvarya Shri Ganpatrao Bodas in 1950 as a leading character in old classical musical dramas like Saubhadra, Sanshaykallol, Swayamvar, Ekach Pyala, Manapman etc. with veteran actor and actress such as Balgandharva, Hirabai Badodekar, Vinayakbuwa Patwardhan, Nanasaheb Phatak etc. Despite his busy schedule in concerts, he performed in 22 old & new Sangeet Natak with more than 5000 stage shows. This is purely out of his dedication and commitment towards Sangeet Rangbhoomi.

Composed music for more than 10 dramas such as – Mandarmala, Suvarna Tula, Meghmalhar, Tansen, Baiju etc. and acted in the play as a leading character role.

His disciples include many eminent classical singers like Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar, Sudhir Datar, Ram Pratham, Vishwanath Kanhere, Vishwanath Bagul, Yogini Joglekar, Shashikant Oak, Madhuwanti Dandekar, Sanjay Marathe & Mukund Marathe etc. (more than 50) and have got the training from him under the traditional Gurukul way of learning.

Maharashtra Government honoured the “Sangeet Bhushan” degree in 1961.
• Recognition by Government of Maharashtra in 1981 for successful completion and continuous 30 years of career in Marathi Sangeet Rangbhumi.

• Honoured “Sangeet Chudamani Degree” by Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Puri.

Appointed by AIR, New Delhi on the Northern (Hindustani) Music Audition Board Committee. Also Advisory Nagpur and other Universities in India.
More than 100 Records and number of CDs and LPs to his credit and composed more than 50 Bandish in various Ragas.
Ram Marathe died on 4-10-1989.

Today’s duet song is sung by Sitara Devi and Kantilal (18-4-1907 to 17-6-1971). Kantilal acted in 31 films and sang 59 songs in 24 films.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the film Lalkaar-1972.

It is not common to see me writing on a film after 1970. I have been writing on old films since 2012 and have written more than 1100 posts so far on this Blog alone. But on a cursory look at my own figures, I find that I have written less posts on songs from films after 1970. It is certainly not because they are not good, but because my comfort zone is films before 1970, especially before 1960. The stats for my posts say that I wrote

Decade Number of posts for songs of that decade
1931-1940 152
1941-1950 438
1951-1960 419
1961-1970 46

The rest are for films after 1970 and NFS.

I have always maintained that “not all songs before 1970 are good and not all songs after 1970 are bad. There are good and bad songs in every decade “. The point is I do not listen to songs after 1970 much, as much as those before 1970. Nevertheless, for some really good and appealing songs, I did write on songs from later films ….even for a song of 2018 !

I have selected today’s song because it is a special song. It is the only song sung by Mala Sinha as a Playback singer, though it was shot on her in the film. In the true sense it may not be a ‘ playback song’, but certainly it was pre-recorded and she lip synched on it on the screen. It is a duet with Manhar (Udhas)-younger brother of the more famous singer Pankaj Udhas.

Mala Sinha was an educated, hard working actress. Though she worked with leading Banners and was Heroine to well known Heroes, she was never counted among the Class I Heroines of her Times. She worked with many newcomers, like Dharmendra etc. Her career spanned a long time but she never got a single Filmfare Award, though nominated 4 times.

Mala Sinha was born in a Bengali Nepalese Christian family in Calcutta,on 11-11-1936. Mala Sinha claimed herself to be of a Bengali descent Nepali many years ago in a T.V. interview. They named her Alda. Her friends at school used to tease her by calling her Dalda (a brand of vegetable oil), so she changed her name to Mala. In her childhood she learnt dancing and singing.

Although she was an approved singer of All India Radio, she has sung only one duet-with Manhar- in the film Lalkar-1972. But as a singer she has done stage shows in many languages from 1947 to 1975.

Mala started her career as a child artist in Bengali films Jai Vaishno Devi followed by Shri Krishan Leela, Jog Biyog and Dhooli. Noted Bengali director Ardhendu Bose saw her acting in a school play and took permission from her father to cast her as a heroine in his film Roshanara (1952)-Bangla film, her cinematic debut.

After acting in a couple of films in Calcutta, Mala had to go to Bombay for a Bengali film. There she met Geeta Bali, a noted Bollywood actress, who was charmed by her and introduced her to film director Kidar Sharma. It was Sharma who cast her as a heroine in his Rangeen Ratein-56. Her first Hindi film was Badshah-54 opposite Pradeep Kumar, then came Ekadashi-55, a mythological film. Both failed, but her lead role in Kishore Sahu’s Hamlet-54, paired opposite Pradeep Kumar, fetched her rave reviews in spite of it failing at the box office. Films like Lai Batti (ac­tor Balraj Sahni’s only directorial venture), Nausherwan-E-Adil where she starred as the fair maiden Marcia in Sohrab Modi’s romance about forbidden love and Phir Subah Hogi, which was direc­tor Ramesh Saigal’s adapta­tion of Dosteovsky’s Crime and Punishment established Mala Sinha’s reputation as a versatile actress who took the maximum career risks by accepting unconventional roles.

Mala was a singer of some repute and used to sing for All India Radio; she was not allowed to sing playback (even for herself) in the movies with the lone exception being 1972’s Lalkar. In the 1950s, she had a string of hits opposite Pradeep Kumar like Fashion -1957, Detective -1958, Duniya Na Mane-1959 though their first two ventures had failed. The films she did with Pradeep Kumar were men-oriented. In 1957, noted Bollywood actor and film director Guru Dutt (the husband of Geeta Dutt) cast Mala in his film Pyaasa-1957 in a role originally intended for Madhubala. Mala gave a memorable performance as the relatively unsympa­thetic part of an ambitious woman who chooses to marry a rich man (played by actor Rehman) and have a loveless marriage rather than a poor, unsuccessful poet and her impoverished lover (played by Guru Dutt) whom she ditches. Pyaasa remains to this day a classic in the history of Indian cinema and a turning point for Sinha.

After Pyaasa her major successes were Phir Subah Hogi-1958 and Yash Chopra’s directorial debutsDhool Ka Phool -1959 that elevated her into a major dramatic star. There was no looking back for Sinha then as she was part of many successful movies from 1958 to the early ’60s like Parvarish -1958, Ujala, Main Nashe Mein Hoon, Duniya Na Mane, Love Marriage -1959, Bewaqoof -1960, Maya -1961, Hariyali Aur Rasta and Dil Tera Deewana -1962, Anpadh, Bombay Ka Chor -1962. Critics believe her career best performance was in Bahurani -1963, Gumrah, Gehra Daag, Apne Huye Paraye and Jahan Ara. Apart from pairing with Pradeep Kumar, her pairing opposite Raaj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar,Biswajit and Manoj Kumar in women-oriented films were appreciated by audiences, with her films opposite Biswajitbeing the most popular. She did 10 films with Biswajit. In 2007, they won the Star Screen Lifetime Achievement Award, calling them on stage together giving due respect to their popularity as a pair who have tasted box office success.

The most remarkable feature of Mala Sinha was that most of her 1960s and 1970s hits were fueled by her own star power as much as the heroes and most of the time her role was more powerful than the hero. Though she was pitted opposite her seniors like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar, Pradeep Kumar and when she acted opposite the emerging stars from late 1950s like Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar and Raaj Kumar, she made sure her role was as good as theirs.

In 1966, Sinha went to Nepal to act in a Nepali film called Maitighar when the Nepali film industry was still in its infancy. This was the only Nepali film she did in her career. Her hero in the film was an estate owner called Chidambar Prasad Lohani. Soon after, Mala Sinha married C. P. Lohani with the blessings of her parents. From the beginning theirs was a long-distance marriage with Lohani based in Kathmandu to look after his business and Sinha living in Bombay with their daughter Pratibha. She continued acting after her marriage.

From 1974, she cut down on her assignments as the lead actresses. She accepted strong character roles in films like 36 Ghante -1974, Zindagi -1976, Karmayogi -1978, Be-Reham -1980, Harjaee -1981, Yeh Rishta Na Tootay, Babu (film) and Khel, which were popular.

In the early ’90s Madhuri Dixit was promoted as new Mala Sinha in magazines. But, after 1994, she completely withdrew from industry and has given very few public appearances. In Dhool Ka Phool and B.R. Chopra’s Gumrah, she played the first unwed mother and adulterous wife respectively in Hindi cinema. As she grew older, she gracefully moved on to doing character roles that befitted her age. She was last seen in Zid -1994. Though Mala evinced as much interest in her daughter Pratibha’s career as her father did in her career, she was unable to achieve the same success for her daughter.(adapted from nett4you and wiki).

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada-54’ in Bangla and Hindi. In 54 again, she did her first film in Bombay, Badshah-54, then came Hamlet-54, Riyasat-55 and Ekadashi-55. In all she did 105 films.

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted “Rangeen Raten”-56 with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film Riyasat-55, her Hero was Mahipal and in film Ekadashi-55 it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many Heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example,in the film “Professor”-62 Shammi Kapoor’s Heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was Pyar ki Jeet-62, opposite Mahipal- a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade Heroine Meena Kumari also had done several Mythological and costume films before Baiju Bawra took her high up and above other Heroines. Films like Veer Ghatotkach-49, Shri Ganesh Mahima-50, Laxmi Narayan-51, Hanuman Paataal vijay-51 and Alladin aur Jadui Chirag-52 had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny Walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with Baazi-51, had earlier worked in “The last message or Aakhri paigham”-49. However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors, but even singers do this. They hesitate to say that they first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare Arzoo-50 as her first film, under Anil Biswas, but she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film Aakhri paigham-49, under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with a less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

Film Lalkaar-1972 was made by Sagar Art International, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanand Sagar – who became world famous later for screening his record making epic TV serial Ramayana from 25-1-1987 to 31-7-1988. The music was by kalyanji-Anand ji ably assisted by Jaykumar Parte – who was their assistant for many years. Parte is practically unknown to most people. He was not only the most wanted arranger in the industry, but he had given music to 4 Hindi films and 1 Marathi film. The other assistant was Babla-their own younger brother and a well known musician. The third assistant was Frank Fernando – one of the pMD pair of Roy-Frank duo who gave music to only 1 film, Gogola-1966.

The cast of the film lalkaar-1972 was Rajendra Kumar, Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Kumkum, Dara Singh, Dev Kumar, Ramesh Deo, Nazir Hussain and a long list of other actors. Today’s duet song is the only Hindi film song sung by Mala Sinha in her career. She makes Debut here and ALL her songs are now covered on the Blog, with this song !

Song- Mere Mehboob meri baat tumhen kya maaloom(Lalkaar)(1972) Singers-Manhar Udhas, Mala Sinha (Debut Song), Lyricist- Hasrat Jaipuri, MD- Kalyanji – Anandji (asstt. Jay Parte)

Lyrics

Mere mehboob
meri baat
tumhen kya aa maaloom
meri dhadkan
mere jazbaat
tumhen kya aa maaloom
meri nazron ke sawaalaat
tumhen kya maaloom
kaise kat’te hain ye din raat
tumhen kya aa maaloom

naam lekar kabhi ek bar pukaara hota
teri awaaz ka kuchh humko sahaara aa hota

meri khamoshi bhi awaaz diya karti hai
baat munh se nahin
nazron se hua karti hai
jhooth
yoon bhi hoti hai mulaakaat
tumhen kya maaloom
tumhi rahte ho mere saath
tumhen kya maaloom

tum mujhse baat kyun nahin karte
darta hu kahi tum naraj na ho jao
pyar kuch jurm nahi hai jo dara karte ho
raaz apne se chhupate ho
ye kya karte ho

lab pe aa jaye agar raaj to vo raaz nahin
tumse keh doon ye mere ishq ka andaaz nahin
ek deewaane ke haalaat
tumhen kya maaloom
tumne bhadka diye jazbaat
tumhen kya maaloom

mere mehboob meri baat
tumhen kya aa maaloom

!! आप सभी को हिन्दी दिवस की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएँ !!!

Welcome all to this post of mine which is coming after a l-o-n-g gap. I was not sure this time also if I could be able to send this write-up. But thanks to ALL, I can now hope to share articles on regular basis as earlier. More about my long absence in the other future posts.

Coming back to the today’s post, which comes on a special occasion and that is the celebration of ‘Hindi Diwas’ today on 14th September.

Though I am not aware more of more details on this subject to write here today, I would like to add the following brief which I have gathered from the internet about this subject. (I hope readers will forgive me for my ‘ignorance’ on the details of this subject).

I am reproducing here the information given on internet about ‘Hindi Diwas’ which I have taken from ‘Wikipedia’

हिन्दी दिवस प्रत्येक वर्ष 14 सितम्बर को मनाया जाता है। प्रबुद्ध सोसाइटी के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष डा. श्री प्रकाश बरनवाल का कहना है कि 14 सितम्बर 1949 को संविधान सभा ने यह निर्णय लिया कि हिन्दी केन्द्र सरकार की आधिकारिक भाषा होगी। क्योंकि भारत मे अधिकतर क्षेत्रों में ज्यादातर हिन्दी भाषा बोली जाती थी इसलिए हिन्दी को राजभाषा बनाने का निर्णय लिया और इसी निर्णय के महत्व को प्रतिपादित करने तथा हिन्दी को प्रत्येक क्षेत्र में प्रसारित करने के लिये वर्ष 1953 से पूरे भारत में 14 सितम्बर को प्रतिवर्ष हिन्दी-दिवस के रूप में मनाया जाता है। स्वतन्त्रता प्राप्ति के बाद हिन्दी को आधिकारिक भाषा के रूप में स्थापित करवाने के लिए काका कालेलकर, हजारीप्रसाद द्विवेदी, सेठ गोविन्ददास आदि साहित्यकारों को साथ लेकर व्यौहार राजेन्द्र सिंह ने अथक प्रयास किये।

If we search on ‘google’ about the most spoken languages of the world we get the following results which I am reproducing below.

The most spoken languages in the world
• English (1,132 million speakers)
• Mandarin (1,117 million speakers)
• Hindi (615 million speakers)
• Spanish (534 million speakers)
• French (280 million speakers)
• Arabic (274 million speakers)

Well, above is the brief only. There is a long history behind ‘celebrating Hindi Diwas’ and ‘celebrating it on 14th September.

I had been always longing to bring here songs which talk about our culture, traditions, folklores etc etc and I have presented few of them under the series ‘Desh Ki Mitti Ki Khushboo’. Similarly, every year whenever ‘Hindi Diwas’ is celebrated I was looking for a suitable song for this occasion. Earlier I had come across many ‘non-film songs’ on this subject. However, when I was looking for the songs from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Kavi Sammelan’ I came across the today’s song which talks about the greatness of ‘Hindi’ -‘Hindi Bhaasha’, and I am very happy to present this song on the blog today.

Today’s song or rather a ‘poem recitation’ is by Santosh Anand ji of his own poem.

‘jisne jan jan ke jeewan ka
roop taraashaa hai
meri bhaasha Hindi bhaasha
sab ki bhaasha hai’
,/em.…

I am sure that regular readers on the blog must be enjoying all the posts presented under this series of poems from this movie. Today’s presentation is the fifth ‘poem-post’ from this movie.

A brief about the movie ‘Kavi Sammelan-1972’ is given below.

‘Kavi Sammelan-1972’ was directed by Kedar Sharma for ‘Rajshri Productions Pvt Ltd’.
It was produced by Tarachand Badjatya.

Introduction of the poets on the dais was done by Ramrikh Manhar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.02.1972. Thus, this movie has now already completed its fifty years of release.

The footnote for this movie page in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions that ‘Bharat ke shreshthhtam Kavi pehli baar ek saath rajat-pat par pesh kiye gaye thhe.’

Poems of following ‘poets’ are included in this movie.

Rashtrakavi Shri Ramdhari Singh ‘Dinkar’
Santosh Anand (mentioned as ‘Santoshanand’)
Kaka Hathrasi
Som Thakur
Bekal ‘Utsahi’
‘Neeraj’
Snehlata ‘Sneh’
Radheshyam ‘Pragalbh’
Shail Chaturvedi
Govind Vyas
Maya Devi
Nirbhay Hathrasi
Balkavi Bairaagi
Omprakash ‘Aaditya’
Manik Verma
Kedar Sharma
Gopal Prasad Vyas

(Addenda in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for this movie mentions that there were two more creations by Vimlesh and Paras Bhramar in this movie.)

So far, we have enjoyed the poems recited by Maya Govind, Kaka Hathrasi, Gopal Das ‘Neeraj’ and Shail Chaturvedi in the earlier posts for the poems from this movie.

As mentioned above today’s poem is written and recited by Shri Santosh Anand.

Poet-lyricist Santosh Anand ji needs no introduction as we are all aware about his writings or songs which he has penned for the movies.

Though I do wish to write about the biography of Santosh Anand in this write-up, for now, I am leaving it for another post on him which I will be taking in the future on the blog.

Let us now enjoy the today’s poem recitation by Santosh Anand ji …

The sole movie eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today is “Fariyaad”(1942).

“Fariyaad”(1942) was directed by Jayant Desai for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Mubarak, Noorjahaan, Shamim, Rama Shukul, Ishwar Lal, Alaknanda, Rajkumari Shukla, Faatak, Baby Kamla etc in it.

Here is the fourth song from “Fariyaad”(1942). This song is sung by Ishwarlal. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash.

Only audio of the song is available. Ishwarlal had acted in the movie so it is clear that the song was picturised on himself.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 90
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 13 September 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6628 Zindagi hai pyaar se pyaar mein bitaaye jaa Sikandar (1941) 3 songs covered out of 7 so far

One can notice that five movies (out of six) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with just one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (13 September 2022).

This movie is “Sikandar”(1941).

“Sikandar”(1941) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Prithiviraj, Vanmala, Meena, Sheela, Sadiq Ali, Shakir, K.N.Singh, Lala Yakub, Gajendra Singh, Jillo Bai, Zahur Raja, Abu Bakar, Ghulam Hussein, Noor Jehan, Prakash, G.S.Shorry,A ttavale etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three songs from the movie have been covered in the blog. The first two songs were covered in 2012. The third song was covered last month as blog ten year challenge. This song too is another blog ten year challenge song. In other words, the movie “Sikandar”(1941) got a look in again in the blog ten years after its first two songs were covered in the blog.

This song, the fourth from “Sikandar”(1941), is sung by Sheela. Pt Sudarshan is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors (Rafiq Ghaznavi and Meer Sahab), but the music director of this song is not known.

Lyrics of the song and other details are provided by Prakashchandra. The movie had Sheela in it so we can guess that the lady lip syncing the song is Sheela herself.

Today’s song is from film ‘Director’ (1947).

The film was made by Don Films, Punjab. It was directed by S Shafaqat, MA There were two MDs – Lachhiram Tamar and Fateh Ali Khan. Tufail Hoshiyarpuri and Aziz Kashmiri wrote all the 9 songs. HFGK does not credit any song with a singer’s name. However, the uploaders give the details when they upload a song, as given on the actual records. The cast of the film was Salim, Raza, Zeb Qureshi, Zahoor Raja, Arif, Mohini Das, Hafiz and others.

During the years of political turmoil in 1946-1947 and 1948, there was a huge exodus of Hindus and Muslims from both countries, India and the newly formed Muslim country Pakistan. It not only disturbed the whole nation but also created a short time chaos in the Hindi Film Industry. Many Muslim artistes, directors, producers and financiers left for Pakistan. Before going they hurriedly completed the projects on hand somehow. This resulted in a record number of films produced in 1947 as well as a huge number of meaningless films.

In a hurry to complete a film, any person associated with films would direct, act, write songs or even give music. Thus many of such names were never heard again. S Shafaqat, MA, director of this film also seems to be one such case. While migrating to Pakistan during this period or even at a much later time, some producers and directors cheated their Indian colleagues, friends, creditors and ran away stealthily. Here are a few examples.

WZ Ahmed, the owner of Shalimar Pictures, Poona, a producer, director and a studio owner left with his wife Neena. While leaving, he not only carried negatives of all his films, but also conveniently ‘forgot’ to pay salaries and wages of his employees for the previous 3 months. After he left, to recover their dues, some ex-employees got together and produced a film ‘Rangeela Rajasthan’ in 1949. All ex actors, MDs, Lyricists, directors and others connected with the Shalimar studio worked free in the film. The film was not a great success, but they got some money.

The second case is of the famous actor, producer, director and studio owner of Hind Studios, Dadar. During the riots of 1947, his studio was burnt before his eyes. He had lots of bank loan dues and there was no income. He decided to sell his car, house etc. secretly. Then he visited some of his friends in the film industry and borrowed cash money. With all this he coolly and secretly left for Pakistan along with his wife Swarnalata Siyal and the sold out car too !

The third case is of actor Sheikh Mukhtar. He produced a film ‘Noorjahan’ (1967), by investing all his savings. The film flopped. He had a lot of bank loans and also income tax dues to be paid. He quietly took prints of his films and one night escaped to Pakistan !

The point is most of the films produced in 1947 were of no value and people somehow completed their projects. Film ‘Director’ was also one such film. We do not know its story or even its release dates. One of the music directors of this film was Fateh Ali Khan. During the same period, there was another famous qawwaali singer Fateh Ali Khan (he was the father of Pakistan’s famous singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan), who also indulged in cinema in Pakistan. Due to the same names there was a confusion and most people, sites, wiki and even books mixed up these two names and a question on who actually was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan’s father ! Even initially I was also confused but then my Facebook friend Khwaja Irfan Anwer guided me to a Blog in Pakistan, where I got the correct information. Thanks to him. So, here is some information on music director Fateh Ali Khan of India.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan is said to have been born in 1911. He was five years old when he became interested in the famous sitar. His uncle, Ustad Mehboob Ali Khan, was also an expert in music and this instrument. When Fateh Ali Khan grew up, he learned the mysteries and secrets of this art from him.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan also spent a long time with Master Ghulam Haider. He continued to perform with him in Lahore and Bombay as a sitar player and his skills on this instrument. During this time he also learned the intricacies of music and melodies and the subtleties of art. He later composed music for several films, most notably ‘Aaina’. One was film ‘Aaina’ (1944), along with Gulshan Sufi and the other was film ‘Director’ (1947), along with Lachhiram Tamar. After partition he migrated to Pakistan with all his family. In Pakistan, however, he had better luck in films. He gave music to ‘Do Kinaare’ (1950), ‘Harjaai’ (1952), ‘Shola’ (1952), ‘Bedaari’ (1957) ( a copy of our film ‘Jagriti’ (1954)), ‘Saathi’ (1959) and ‘Tum Na Maano’ (1961). He also sang in the films ‘Waada’ (1957) and ‘Raagini’ (1958). Ustad Fateh Ali Khan was the foremost sitar-player and film music composer of the 1950’s in Pakistan. His compositions in ‘Bedaari’ (1957) became run-away super-hits in Pakistan because they were a heart-felt tribute to the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and the public’s sentiments about patriotism.

He moved to Rawalpindi in the 1960’s where he joined Radio Pakistan. After the establishment of the Pakistan National Council of Arts, for some time there also trained novice artists to play the sitar. His son, Raees Khan is also an expert sitar player.

Ustad Fateh Ali Khan was also awarded the Presidential Medal for Excellence in Music in Pakistan. (Thanks to irshadgul.com).

One of the cast members of film ‘Director’ was Zahoor Raja. He was a multi-talented person. He was born on 7 July 1918 at Abbottabad (now in Pakistan) and died in England in 1992. He was a well known Hindi/Urdu Film Actor, Producer, Director, Editor, Writer, Singer, Lyricist & Music Composer in Pre Partition Indian cinema. He graduated from editing and story writing to become a producer-director in 1943.

Zahoor Raja was born in a wealthy family in Abbottabad, Pakistan. After schooling, he studied BA from Rawalpindi but could not complete his graduation as he was more interested in sports than in studies. His father, a Police Inspector, was keen in admitting him in Dehradun for a career in the army. But he ran away from home and landed in Bombay with a letter of introduction to film maker AR Kardar. Since he was a very handsome and well built man, getting into the Bombay film industry was not difficult. At that time, Kardar was directing Punjabi film ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1939) for Ranjit Movietone. Kardar took Zahoor Raja as hero in the film.

Within a year after the release of the film, V Shantaram invited him to join Prabhat Films and was taken on a contract of 3 years. His association with V Shantaram was not beneficial and he did not get much work. Kardar once again came to his rescue and got him employed in National Studios and got him a role in ‘Pooja’ (1940). Thereafter, he got a role in Minerva Moveitone’s ‘Sikandar’ (1941). During the making of the film ‘Sikandar’ (1941), he fell in love with his co-star Meena (Meena Shourie) and married her. The marriage did not last long and Meena later married another handsome actor, Al Nasir in the mid 1940s.

Zahoor Raja later worked as a Hhero in ‘Sewa’ (1941). During this time, while looking for a change from his acting career, he got a chance to direct the film ‘Badal’ (1942) produced under Eastern Pictures where he also acted in the lead role. Though the film failed at the box office, his direction was appreciated by the critics. In 1943, he floated his own film production company, Raja Movietone and made its maiden film ‘Mazaaq’ (1943) which he also directed, acted in a negative role and composed its music. He also acted in the film ‘Bhai’ (1944). His banner produced ‘O Panchhi’ (1944), ‘Ghazal’ (1945) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946).

In most of the films in which he acted, Zahoor Raja was paired with Radha Rani. He also sang the song “Bhulaane Waale Hamein Bhi Na Yaad Aaya Karo” along with Naseem Akhthar in the Movie ‘Ghazal’ (1945) composed by Gyan Dutt. His last movies in India before moving to Pakistan were ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946) and ‘Director’ (1947). He acted in 9 films, directed 5 films, sang 15 songs in 5 films (‘Pooja’ (1940), ‘Sewa’ (1942), ‘Badal’ (1942), ‘Ghazal’ (1945) and ‘Director’ (1945)), wrote lyrics in 1 film (‘Dhadkan’ (1946)) and was MD for 1 film(‘Mazaaq’ (1943)).

After partition, Zahoor Raja returned to Pakistan in 1950 and he was active in the Pakistani film industry until 1966. After 1966, he migrated to England, married an English lady and later died in 1992 in England.

Today’s song is the second song from this film to be featured here. It is sung by Zahoor Raja himself.


Song- Tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee (Director)(1947) Singer- Zahoor Raja, Lyricist- Tufail Hoshiarpuri, MD- Fateh Ali Khan

Lyrics

tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee

gaye ho chhod kar jab se
gaye ho chhod kar jab se
mujhe tanha jawaani mein
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi
kya tum na aaoge
mujhe har ik khushi thhukra gayi

nigaahon mein jidhar dekho
andhera hi andhera hai
andhera hi andhera hai
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi
kya tum na aaoge
muqaddar par syaahi chhaa gayi

meri barbaadiyaan aakar
meri barbaadiyaan aakar
kabhi kya tum na dekhoge
tumhaare dil mein kya baat aa gayi
tumhaare dil mein kya baat aa gayi
kya tum na aaoge
tadap kar jaan labon tak aa gayee

Today’s song is from a stunt film Ji Haan aka Yes please – 1945.

This film was made under the banner of Gautam Chitra, Bombay. It was directed by a pair of Babubhai Mistry and Ramnik Bhatt. All the 8 songs were written by Pt. Indra and the music was by S.N.Tripathi…who was initially for stunt films and later was famous for Mythological movies. The cast consisted of Agha, Bhagwan,Shanta Patel, Meera, Gulab, Raziya,Azeembhai, Anant Prabhu etc etc.

Based on the major chunk of films made, the first 3 decades of talkie films can be easily named accordingly. For example, the 1930’s decade was the “experimental Decade’ because being a new medium, the filmmakers had no idea as to which type of films would attract the audience. Hence there was a mix of all Genres like Historical, Mythological, Folk stories, stunts, family and what not. The 1950’s decade can decisively be called a ” Mythological and Religious films decade” as 124 such films were made in this period. And the 1940’s decade can be said to be a Gold mine for B and C grade action/stunt and costume films. The contribution of Master Bhagwan in this Genre is incomparable to any other filmmaker in the first 30 years of Talkie era. He was not the ‘ initiator’ but surely a ‘developer’ of action films.

An American -Mike Barnum – runs 2 Blogs on B and C grade Hindi action/stunt films of India. Don’t be surprised. There are a few more foreigners who have extraordinary interest in Indian cinema of the yore and they have their own Blogs. One more example is ” memsaabstory.com’n run by Greta Kemmer. Then there is Tom Daniels too. Mike Barnum writes about Master Bhagwan thus…

” Known to his fans as a comedic sidekick in countless Bollywood films of the Golden Era, Bhagwan (Bhagwan Abaji Palav)played the lead and sometimes also directed numerous B grade comedy-action films throughout the 40’s and the 50’s decade. Bhagwaqn often worked opposite former wrestler Baburao pehelwan. With Bhagwan’s short, stubby stature and Baburao’s handsome physique, they made a popular pair.

Bhagwan entered films during the silent era. After a few years, doing bit parts and supporting roles, he tried his hand at Directing with the 1938 stunt film Bahadur Kissan, starring popular action star Chandrarao. Bhagwan co starred in the film with Hansa Wadkar, Sunetra and Vasantrao pahelwan-another former wrestler who was often seen in his films.

Bahadur kissan-38 was quickly followed by Criminal-39, Vanmohini-40 and Raja Gopichand-41 in which the comedian again acted and directed. Bhagwan’s comedy-stunt film combination became quite popular, but is little remembered today, mostly due to the fact that no prints seem to have survived.

Along with the stunt genre, Bhagwan took his brand of comedy and incorporated Horror in House of Mystery(Bhedi Bangla)-49 and spoofed Tarzan pictures with The Jungle man-50. While the masses enjoyed these little B films, it was not until Albela in 1951 that Bhagwan managed to impress the critics. This little musical comedy (produced under his banner-Bhagwan Art productions) also starred Geeta Bali and Baburao Pehelwan and it struck gold at the box office. Bhagwan tried to duplicate Albela’s success with rangeela and Jhamela-51, but both films flopped.

Sadly, of Bhagwan’s dozens of starring roles, only Albela and the comedy Damaad are currently available to see. Thankfully we can at least enjoy the ads and posters from many of his lost or missing films….. and who knows someday a few of these old classics will be unearthed for all to see ! Some of his films were madadgar, Pyar ki raat, Bahadur kissan, criminal, vanamohini, raja gopichand, Rooplekha, Achhajee, Bhedi bangla, Jungle man, Albela, damaad, Actor, Bhole piya, Joker, Bhoole bhatke, Dushmani, Daughter of the Sea, gunehgar, Sukhi jeevan, Badla, Nagma e sahra, Ji haan, Dosti, Shake hands, matwale, laalach, jalan, Jigar and others. “

Master Bhagwan was unique. He was a very hard working person. In the real sense, he brought in the wave of stunt films in the late 40s. After the films of Master Vithal and Fearless Nadia waned in their popularity by 1944-45, it was Master Bhagwan, who established his own Production house-Jagriti Films and produced several stunt films. he had a set of actors and actresses, which included Baburao pehelwan, Vasantrao pehelwan, Azeem Bhai, Shanta Patel, Chanchal, Leela Gupte, Usha Shukla and Vitha Lokare.

The storyline for most of his films was also fixed. Two young vagabonds-Baburao pehelwan and Bhagwan, come to Bombay in search of employment. One Sethji (Azeembhai ) appoints them to protect him from the local criminal (Vasantrao pehelwan). Sethji has a good looking daughter ( one of the stock Heroines), who has a maid (another girl from the stock). Baburao loves Seth ji’s daughter and Bhagwan loves the maid. After a lot of stunts and fighting scenes, the end would be happy. The same story with changed names and other minor changes was used in almost all his films like Badla, Bahadur, Jalan, Madadgaar, Dosti, Shake hand, Matlabi,Bach ke rehna,Bhole bhale, Jeete Raho or such other films. The audience did not mind . They were happy with the stunts. (Did Nasir Hussain and Manmohan Desai get inspiration from Bhagwan in this matter ?).

There was a time when most Indian heroes of the 60’s and the 70’s were great fans of Bhagwan’s action films. Examples are Kishore kumar and Sanjeev kumar. Actor Shyam was his good friend C.Ramchandra, Raj kapoor, P L Santoshi, Shashdhar Mukherjee and many others were his fans. I can not be counted among these famous ones, but I and Greta memsaab simply love Bhagwan’s action films.

Today I am presenting a fun song from the film Ji Haan-45. Out of 8 songs of the film, 5 were comedy songs. One comedy song is already discussed on this Blog. This will be the second song. Let us now enjoy this song.

Today’s song is from the film Gaali-1944.

When I saw the title of this film, I was stunned. I could not ever imagine that such a movie title could be given. I was wondering as to what must be there in the movie- a Gaali competition between 2 groups or is it about a person who can not speak a single sentence without including a gaali in it ? I could not fathom a reason for titling a film like this. Later in the early 50’s, I got a chance to see this film and I was totally and completely disappointed. Even after seeing the film I did not get answers to my original question. The story of the film was meaningless indeed.

After about 25 to 30 years, I was shocked to see the trend of titling the films with sophisticated gaalis like Besharam, Bundalbaz, Beimaan, Bewafa, Bewaqoof etc etc. Such changes are not new to the film industry.

The film Gaali was produced by Chiman bhai Desai under the banner of N.R.Desai Productions, Bombay, and the film was directed by R.S.Chaudhari – a veteran spill over from Silent film era. The name of R S Chaudhari may not be known to the newer generation, but he was considered ” Guru” by stalwarts like Mehboob Khan and Kardar. Like many oldies, Chaudhari was also a multifaceted person and used to write stories for films. You will be surprised to know about his contribution in writing stories of successful films like Roti, Rattan, Baiju Bawra etc.

R S aka Rama Shankar Chaudhari was a great name in the silent era and early Talkie period. Veterans like Mehboob and Kardar treated him like their teacher.

He was born on 8-6-1903 in Banares-U.P. in a middle class family which gave importance to education.After his graduation , he came to Bombay and did another graduation in Arts from J.J. school of Arts, in 1922. He then entered the film line as Art Director and Designer of publicity Pamphlets. he did remarkable covers for the Gujarati Film Journal ” Mauj majah”. He assisted director Manilal Joshi at Laxmi Film co. He started directing silent films with his first film at Laxmi – “Neera “-1926. It was the famous actor Raja Sandow’s spectacular costume film. The film became a Hit wherever it was shown.

He directed 15 silent films at Imperial film co. and Sagar Films. He made several Classics in Historical genres like Anarkali-1928, starring Sulochana (Ruby Meyers). This popular Hit silent film was remade as Talkie in 1935 again with the same cast and chaudhari as a director. Sulochana also acted in Anarkali-1953, thus creating a record of the same actress acting in 3 films of same title and story.

His other historical films were Shirin Khushru and Shaan e Hind, often using the legendary epics as a Nationalist allegory. His films usually featured Sulochana and Zubeida, the two popular and costly Heroines of that era.

His first talkie film was Madhuri-1932, featuring Sulochana. In all, he directed 14 Talkie films – madhuri-32, Sulochana-33, Piya Pyare-34, Aaj kal-34, Anarkali-35, Shaan e Hind-36, Hamari betiyan-36, kal ki Baat-37, Rifle Girl-38, Such hai-39, Aankh Micholi-42, Gaali-44, Magadh Raj-46 and Jaaliyanwala Bagh ki jyoti-53.

he was a very good story and screenplay writer.many of his film had his stories. he wrote stories for films like Neera-26 and Khud ki shaan-31 in silent film era and for Talkie films Hamari betiyan-36, Such hai-39, Roti-42, Adab Arz-43, Gaali-44, Laal haveli-44, Rattan-44, Aan-52, Baiju Bawra-52, Insan aur shaitan-70 and international crook-74. he also scripted Kardar’s pehle aap-44 and mehboob’s Son of india-62 and many films of Ravindra Dave.

In the last phase of life, Chaudhari lived a lonely life in penury. He travelled only by bus. He breathed his last on 22-8-1972 in Bombay.

for 12 songs of the film there were 5 lyricists and 2 Music directors- Pt. Hanuman Prasad and Sajjad Hussain. Sajjad was actually his assistant, but he composed 2 songs and was given equal status as joint MD. The cast of the film was Karan Dewan, Nirmala, Manju, Yakub, Kanhaiyalal, Sunalini Devi, Zillo bai, Gulab and many others. Today’s song is sung by Manju. She was one of those unfortunate actresses/singers, whose careers were curtailed by workless contracts with the studios and then due to marriages.

Manju’s father Gangaram Jadhav was a famous Marathi drama actor in his times in ‘Anand Vilas natak mandali’ at nagpur. He had 4 children, 2 sons and 2 daughters- Vijaylaxmi, Manjula, Trimbak and Balakram. They never went to school but were taught at home only.When Gangaram got a job in prabhat film co. they shifted to poona. Manjula started learning classical music from keshavrao bhole of Prabhat.

When Manjula got a singing role in film Aadmi-1939 as a child artiste, her name was changed to Manju. She sang songs in both versions-Hindi and Marathi. Next she acted in the film Sant Gyaneshwar-40. She acted and sang in Nai kahani-43. She sang songs in films Chaand and Ramshastri-44.

Due to a legal contract with Prabhat, she was not able to work in other films though she was in good demand outside, but Prabhat refused to allow her. However, producer Chimanbhai Desai got permission and she worked and sang in the film Gaali-44 She got an acting and singing role in the film Rattan-44. The film and the songs became hits. offers started pouring in but meanwhile she got married to karan Dewan. Her in-laws did not allow her to act in films. She had to bid goodbye to films.

After Karan Dewan’s death her connection with films ended finally. She has 2 sons and 5 daughters. She stayed with her sons in Bombay and Sharjah. (Thanks to blog beetehuedin for information.)

The film GAALI-1944 was available till at least 1950,around which time I must have seen it. The film story was….

Gaali was a film with a strange story of a young blind widow,who thinks that her husband comes and talks to her.
Mangala (Nirmala) loses her husband soon after marriage and she also becomes blind,without any medical reason. She stays with her Father in law Jagat narayan Chakravarti who also has an unmarried daughter lali (Manju Dewan). One day he meets Tilak,son of a zamindar from a nearby village. He wants Tilak(Karan Dewan) to marry his daughter Lali,but surprisingly,Tilak starts getting attracted to Mangala. She also talks to him and imagines it as if her husband is talking to her.
This is made use of by a village ruffian and people attack Jagat’s house demanding that the friendship of Tilak and Mangla be stopped. In the melee,jagat gets killed. At the same time Mangala and Tilak are in a Temple getting intimate. Suddenly her eyesight comes back and she realises the truth that it is not her husband.

Finally,Tilak marries Lali and Mangala becomes a Sadhwi in a temple for the rest of her life.

I do not remember the songs of this film, but most songs were shot on Lali(Manju).

This was ,according to me, a hopeless film.

In 2003 this was a very popular song.  They would constantly play this song on FM channels.  We had kept a small FM radio in the office, and usually it was kept on from mid-day, when all the urgent work of the section was done.  Rest of the work could be handled while listening to songs on FM radio. Listening to it many times, tends to make transcribing the lyrics, an easy task. Analyzing the words and their meaning is not so simple.

I thought the word was “udtaa hua wo. . .” in this line “girtaa hua woh aasman se. . .

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi baadal hi thhe wo kehta raha magar

There is the act of ‘falling’ twice in one line.  The poet could mean, that once the fall starts, it stops only when you reach the earth.  It would also mean that falling from a great height, i.e. aasmaan, only rock bottom will stem the fall.

Similarly, there is very interesting simile used in this first line:

toota toota ek parinda aise toota
ke phir jud na paaya
loota loota kis ne uss ko aise loota
ke phir udd na paaya

The bird is broken,
Never to be whole again
Who has done this great pillage,
So, the bird can never fly again.

kho ke apne par hi to
uss ne thha udnaa seekha
gham ko apne saathh mein le le
dard bhi tere kaam aayegaa

It learnt to fly,
Only by losing the wings,
Hold your sadness close,
The pain also will be useful.

tukde tukde ho gaya thha
har sapna jab woh toota aa
bikhre tukdon mein Allah ki
marzi ka manzar paayegaa

When the dreams are shattered to pieces
Arrange those pieces, to find
A new scenario with Allah’s will.

When dreams are broken, wishes are denied, it is always because Allah has willed something better and different for you.

girtaa huaa woh aasmaan se
aa kar gira zameen par
khwaabon mein phir bhi
baadal hi thhe
wo kehta raha magar
Allah ke bande hans de
jo bhi ho kal phir aayegaa

Falling down from the skies
It fell to the earth,
His vision full of clouds
Kept on the refrain,
O Allah’s faithful, laugh
Tomorrow is a new day
There is hope.

Now I know, why it is not ‘udtaa hua’, but ‘girtaa hua…..’.

This is a great motivational song for when the chips are down.  This was the first song of Kailash Kher, which made him famous.  I always thought that this is a private album song, but it is actually a film song from the film ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  This is supposed to be a sequel to ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’.  Both these movies have passed me by.  I am not sure if I have seen ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’, but I am sure about ‘Waisa bhi hota hai – II’.  Vishal Dadlani is the lyricist and composer with his partner Shekhar. The credits of this movie have a long list of lyricist and music directors and singers.  It also has a longish line of actors.  It seems that the film’s making is a pool of multiple strugglers in different fields of film making, who were trying to get a foothold in the industry at that time.

Kailash Kher is playing himself in the film singing this song.  So this is also a singer actor song.  Another trivia is that Rabbi Shergil also played himself and performed his own song on the screen in this film.

ke khudaa ishq mein hai ae
keh dey koyi un se
ke khudaa ishq mein hai ae ae

ek pal jo milaa hai
tujhko jeeney ke ae liye ae
ek pal jo milaa hai
zahar peeney ae ke liye
is pal se ae nichod ley tu
sar-e-aam ??
hain dard hazaa..aar
ek seene ke liye ae
hain dard hazaar ek seene ke liye

likh detaa hai masti mein
kalam jo o taqdeer
ho jaaye ae gawaaraa wohi
kar wo o tadbeer
ye koshishein bekaar hain ae
ronaa aa aan aa bekaar
ban jaayein to mit`ati naheen
paththar ki lakeer
ban jaayein to mit`ati..eee naheen paththar ki lakeer
