Today’s song is from the film Phir Milenge-1942, a film made by Minerva Movietone and directed by Sohrab Modi. All the 9 songs of the film were written by Pt. Sudarshan and were composed by the Music Director Mir Sahab. The cast of the film consisted of Sardar Akhtar, Sadiq Ali, Meena (Shorey), K.N.Singh, Eruch Tarapore, Manakabai, Ghulam Hussain, Saadat Ali and many others. For the 9 songs 7 singers were used.

Director of the film-Sohrab Modi was married to Mehtab- daughter of Marium, the divorced wife of a small time Nawab from Gujarat and the step sister of Zubeida (Alam Ara fame), Sultana and Shahzadi, daughters of Fatima- the extra-wife of the same Nawab. The Heroine of the film became the wife of Mehboob- the famous director and the owner of Mehboob studios.

It is a well known established fact that in the early years, many women artistes came from lower classes, singing families or Tawaifs and similar types. Most of these girls joined the film line in order to get a rich Seth ji or a suitable husband and spend the rest of the life respectfully. There are many examples of such ‘planned’ marriages in the early era. However, this process continued even in later times.

Film industry is one industry where men and women have to work together. Whether it is an Actor-director or Singer-Composer, for the sake of work they have to spend much time together. No wonder then that Cupid does his work overtime. Sometimes there is mutual attraction and at times there are one sided fires burning. In most cases the one sided fire is extinguished in a very painful way, like what P L Santoshi faced with actress Rehana or the slap Sanjiv Kumar got from actress Nutan.

There were cases when the love of Dilip kumar for Madhubala, died in the High court witness Box, when he gave evidence against her father in the ‘ Naya Daur‘ legal case. Dev Anand’s love with Suraiyya ended happily for Dev Anand with him marrying Kalpana Kartik, but Suraiyya stayed “Unmarried”, in his ” yaad”, throughout her life. Here the villain was her so-called ” Grandmother “, who actually was her own mother, as documented in the book “Stars from another sky” by Saadat Hasan Manto !

The successful 2-way traffic usually ended with a marriage. We can see marriages between producers and Actresses( Himanshu Rai-Devika rani and W Z Khan and actress Nina), directors and singers/actresses ( Nalini jaywant-Virendra Desai, Shaukat Hussain-Noorjehan, Geeta Dutt-Guru Dutt, Lalita Pawar-G.P.Pawar, Rattanbai-Hafiz Khan), Actors and Actresses ( Arun Ahuja-Nirmala devi, Snehprabha Pradhan-Kishore Sahu, Dev Anand-Kalpana Kartik, Dharmendra- Hema Malini, Rajesh Khanna-Dimple Kapadiya, Amitabh Bachchan-Jaya, Abhishek-Aishwarya, Kishore Kumar-Madhubala, Premnath-Bina Rai, Karan Dewan-Manju Desai, Marutirao Pehlwan-Tara Devi.)

There were some odd combinations like Satyendranath Athiah-Bhanu Athaiya (Lyricist-Costume designer),Lyricist-Singer (Amar Verma-Manik Verma), Singer-villain (Shakti Kapoor- Shivangi Kolhapure),Music teacher-student ( Roshan-Ira Moitra, Hemant Kumar-Bela Mukherjee, C.Ramchandra-‘Ben’ Ratan Thakur), and even a singer-Orchestra player (Vinita Amladi-Krishna Chakravarty) and lastly between singer-singers ( Jyoti-G M Durani, Gauhar Karnataki- Bal Gandharva). There were those pairs who were singers-actors ( Amirbai- Himalayawala, Rafiq Gazanavi- Anwari bai).

The interesting group, however, was that of Composer-Singers ( Sudhir Phadke-Lalita Deulkar, Asha Bhosle-R D Burman, Naashad-Premlata, Anil Biswas-Meena Kapoor, Pannalal Ghosh-Parul Ghosh, Khayyam-Jagjit Kaur, Ghulam Haider-Umrao Zia begum, Kamal Dasgupta-Firoza begum, Ninu Majumdar-Kaumudi Munshi).

Additionally, there were some high profile marriages too like, Kardar- Bahar, Mehboob khan-Sardar Akhtar, Sardar Chandulal Shah- Gohar Mamajiwala, Sohrab Modi- Mehtab, Homi Wadia- Fearless Nadia, Zubeida sr – Raja Dhanrajgir, S.D.Narang- Smriti Biswas etc. etc. Each of these marriages has an interesting story behind it. Please note that all these lists quoted in this post are only indicative and not exhaustive. Many more pairs have remained unmentioned.

One of the artistes in the cast of this film is Menaka. She was one of the ” Same Name Confusion” pair, which was operative in the same period, causing severe confusion in their filmographies. These two Menakas caused solid confusion as one of them had worked in films made at Bombay and Calcutta.

Menaka/Menakabai / Menakabai Shirodkar ( Bombay )
—————————————————-
Menaka was born in Lahore in or around 1910. She was from a professional singer family and got training in classical singing. The family was originally from Belgaum and her maiden name was Menaka Belgaonkar. Later she was married and became Menaka Shirodkar.
At the age of 23-24 she landed in Bombay to try her luck in films. In those days such girls from singing families used to get into films easily, due to their singing capability. She joined Minerva and sang in their films, starting with Pukar-39,in which she got only one song.
She was more interested in classical singing and hence concentrated on singing more than acting. However, she did act in 5 films, in which she also sang.

After her film Gul Bakavli-47 she devoted her full time to singing and holding jalsas. Soon she became a known figure in singing circles. After marriage she had two daughters. One of them, Shobha became a famous singer and was known as Shobha Gurtu.
After her singing was over Menakabai Shirodkar-as she came to be known later- retired and settled in Ponda,Goa.
She died on 23-12-2003 at the age of around 93 years.

Sadiq Ali- the Hero of this film was known as ” Prince of Minerva”. Sadiq Ali, was born on 6-10-1911 at Jalandhar, Punjab. His 2 cousins- Wazir Ali and Nazir Ali were famous Indian cricketers. Sadiq Ali completed his Engineering degree and worked in M.E.S. at Kanpur (Military Engg. Services). Due to strong desire to work in films and dramas, he resigned from his job after 5 years and joined Agha Hashr’s Drama company. When the company was closed, he joined The Burma Imperial film company at Rangoon. After few small roles, he came down to Bombay.

After working in some smaller companies, he joined Minerva Movietone. Starting with khan Bahadur-37, he worked in Minerva’s Pukar-39, Sikandar-41, Phir Milenge-42, Prithwiraj Sanyogita-43, Parakh-44 (only directed by Modi) and Ek din ka sultan-45, also in Sandesa-39,Black out, Duniya tumhari hai, Phir milenge, Lieutenant, Ulti Ganga, Patharon ke saudagar,Jagbeeti,Nishana, Do Naina, Manjhdar, Mitti etc. In all he acted in 23 films. His last film was Ever Ready-46. After partition, he migrated to Pakistan.

First film in Pakistan was Judai (1950 Shaheena,Nazar and Zeenat). Other film was Shola (1952).

Sadiq Ali was a very successful and famous actor before partition and got the title of Prince of Minerva. He acted in many films in India, but in Pakistan, Sadiq Ali could not be successful as he was in India.

He was paralyzed in the 60’s and could be seen sitting with a Pan shop in Capitol Cinema lane, Karachi. Died on 12-7-1977 in Karachi. In his last days, he was seen begging on the road.

Today’s song, sung by Sardar Akhtar is not sung like a professional singer, though she was one of the famous singers of Hiramandi Bazar of Lahore. I wonder how and why she sang 92 songs in 27 films. I never liked her songs. I think even Naseem Bano sang better than her in ” zindagi ka saaz bhi kya saaz hai”.

With this song, the film ‘Phir Milenge’ makes its Debut on this Blog.


Song- Kisi se preet na kariyo koye (Phir Milenge)(1942) Singer- Sardar Akhtar, Lyricist- Pt. Sudarshan, MD- Meer Saheb

Lyrics

Kisi se preet na kariyo koye
Kisi se preet na kariyo koye
preet jagat ka sundar dhokha
preet jagat ka sundar dhokha
preet kiye dukh hoye
kisi se preet kiye dukh hoye
kisi se preet na kariyo koye

preet patang kare deepak se
preet patang kare deepak se
phir peechhe pachhtaaye
phir peechhe pachhtaaye
deepak preet ki reet na jaane
deepak preet ki reet na jaane
tan man det jaraaye
Kisi se preet na kariyo koye

preet kanwal se bhramar kare hai
baithhe uthh kar jaaye ae
preet kanwal se bhramar kare hai
baithhe uthh kar jaaye ae
saanjh samay jab sot kamal jab
saanjh samay jab sot kamal jab
bhanwra jaan ganwaaye
Kisi se preet na kariyo koye

?? se neh lagaaye

jhoome jhoole sudh budh bhoole
jhoome jhoole sudh budh bhoole
?? haath ??
Kisi se preet na kariyo koye

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 148 # A tribute to Kishore Kumar#
———————————————–———————————————

Today 4th August 2021 is the ninety-second birth anniversary of legendary Kishore Kumar.

He was born on 4th August 1929 at Khandwa (nowadays MP) and passed away on 13th October’1987 at Mumbai. Had he been alive, he would have celebrated his ninety-second birthday today. But he passed away at the age of fifty-eight years only and left his musical memories with us forever to cherish and enjoy.

For today’s occasion, I was looking for a song from a movie not presented on the blog and a song which is different. While searching in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) I came across today’s movie ‘Yauwan’. I was neither aware of the movie nor its songs.

Luckily this movie has not been presented on the blog and it contains a Kishore Kumar song and that too a ‘solo’ song. This is also the only Kishore Kumar song in this movie. And this is the song which I do not remember to have listened earlier. A low-pitched soft song this song serves the purpose of being a ‘different song’ from other well-known Kishore Kumar songs still to come up on the blog. This is a lesser heard song too. In summary, this song is just what the doctor ordered. 🙂

“Yauwan-1973” was directed by Ranjan Bose for ‘N.P. International, Bombay’. It was produced by N.P. Singh. It had Yogeeta Bali, Anil Dhawan, Sujit Kumar, Sundar, Mohan Choti, Jankidas, Poornima, Sajjan, Aashu, Rajpal, Renu, Rajanibala, Amar Grewal, Rameshwar, Bharat, Ratan Gaurang, Mehta, Sharma, Jugnu, Baby Sajju, Rajpal and others.

It had Kabir Bedi also featuring in a special appearance which the movie titles mentioned as ‘and a brief encounter with Kabir Bedi’ 😊

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Ranjan Bose who was also the director of this movie. Dialogues of this movie were written by Madan Joshi and editing was done by Bhaskar Rao.

usi ki zindagi hai jo ise
hans kar guzaare
tumhaari berukhi se
pareshaan hain nazaare
zaraa sa muskuraa ke
tum inhen de do sahaare
tumhaari berukhi se
hmm hmm hmm hmm

“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) was one of two movies that were released on 15 August 1975. “Sholay”(movie 1975) was the other movie. In the earlier weeks, “Sholay”(1975) was receiving lukewarm response from audience, and their makers were very nervous. After a few days of anxiety, the crowd suddenly began to rust into the movie halls screening “Sholay”(1975), much to the relief of their makers.

On the other hand, “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) began to attract house full audiences from the very first day. Unlike Sholay(1975) it was a low budget movie and it began to show profits as soon as it became clear that the movie would not be taken off after one week but would go on and on. There were many places where this movie ran longer than Sholay. In Ranchi, Sholay ran for 14 weeks whereas Jai Santoshi Ma ran far longer.

The music of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) became very popular. By now the songs of this movie have become a part of many Indian househlds. This movie is the highlight in the careers of Usha Mangeshkar (as a playback singer) and C Arjun (as a music director). Kavi Pradeep, a lyricist extraordinaire of religious and patriotic songs, got to pen the kind of lyrics he so enjoyed.

“Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) had six songs, including one multiple version song. All songs have gone on to become all time hit songs.

The blog has five of them. Here are the details:-

Song Date of posting (Post number) Remarks
Main to aarti utaaroon re Santoshi maata ki 18 August 2013 (8551)
Yahaan wahaan jahaan tahaan mat poochho kahaan kahaan 11 December 2017 (13802) Multiple version song- Two versions
Karti hoon tumhaara vrat main sweekaar karo maa 11 December 2020 (16089)
Madad karo Santoshi maata 28 May 2021 (16388)

Only one song is left to be covered. Here is that final song. This song is sung by Manna Dey. This is a song of “Hausla afzaai” for Kanan Kaushal, who falls into hard days (as is customary in a a devotional movie. 🙂 )

Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Music is cpmposed by C Arjun.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the six songs of “Jai Santoshi Maa”(1975) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This song is the 200th song of Kavi Pradeep in the blog as a lyricist.

Today’s song is from an unknown film Maaf Kijiyega-1946. HFGK mentions ” Social Film” as its Genre, but none of the factors of this film support this claim. The director was Nari Ghadiyali – who was a specialist for action/stunt films. MD was K.Narayan rao, famous only for stunt films. The cast of the film also consisted of regular actors for stunt films, like Prakash(real name Hashmat ullah khan), Shanta Patel (a regular in Master Bhagwan’s stunt films), Dalpat (popular as Dalpat Kaka), Bibi, Chandrika etc etc. The songs were written by an unknown lyricst- Mustapha and were sung by ordinary singers-not any famous one. I wonder how such a combination can be suitable for a ” Social’ film ?

This Blog started in 2008 and I joined it as a commentor sometime in 2010. I don’t remember exactly when. Nowadays, whenever I have free time and nothing else to do, I visit the early pages of the Blog and see the songs and more importantly – the comments. In those early years and till about 2018 or so, there used to be a lot of comments by readers. I found that readers were from various other countries, but surprisingly, their knowledge about old films, songs and its artistes was quite noteworthy.

As the years passed by, the foreign readers’ number dwindled slowly, but readers from India increased in the comment section. One logical reason was that the readers from other countries were probably from the older generation, settled abroad. Hence as the time passed on slowly their activities must have got reduced. Some of the younger commentors from other countries, too, stopped their comments. They are, however, active on FaceBook. People like Lalitha ji, memsaab ji, Pamir Harvey, Santosh oza, Shekhar Gupta etc. stopped commenting. One name remains with the Blog consistently from Day-1 till today (albeit now occasionally) and that is Raja Swaminathan ji – whether he is in India or in Holland.

I encountered some funny incidents involving comments on the Blog. I remember one. In those days, except the Admins perhaps, no one else knew who ” Peevesie’s Mom” was in reality.
I was also active on FaceBook. One day a lady visitor to my Fb page – Nalini Krishnan – asked me on Fb, ” are you the same Arunkumar Deshmukh, who comments on atulsongaday?”
She was shocked to read my reply, ” yes, Peevesie’s Mom ji”. Possibly shocked, she asked me how I knew her name. It was actually very easy. Before replying her, I visited her Fb page and I found that she is Vaidehi’s mother. After reading a few more posts , it was easy to make 2 + 2 !

Another incident was comments by one ” IDL Man”. From his comments, I knew he was from Australia. There was another reader called ” BOODHEMIYAN “. He was from Dubai. One day ‘ IDL Man’ posted the following comment, on 12-6-2011….

Atul Bhai,

WHY YOUR BLOG IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD

I am also a deewana of old film music like you all.Having lot of spare time now,I surf the Internet.I realised that there are many Indian and Foregn persons equally interested/obsessed with old film charms.Many of them run their own blogs on old films/music.I decided to find out and visit every blog on the Internet.
I visited exactly 102 such blogs run by Indian and foreigners.Surprisingly,foreigners were more consistent than Indians.
i found that almost 85 % blogs are left unattended,halfway or no posting for the last few years.One more interesting point is many ladies are also running such blogs,of course under Pseudonyms.They are more consistent than men and get a good following too !
After a lot of screening,I shortlisted 7 blogs: 4 in wordpress and 3 independents.Two blogs are run by ladies,one each Indian and foreigner.
Finally,I came to a conclusion that your blog ATULSONGADAY WORDPRESS.COM is THE BEST,because:

1)You are a very honest person ,without any airs, when you present songs
2)your deep love of music and hard work is consistent and it shows.
3)you are very systematic and you think of your readers while making songs available to them in an easy way.
4)your earnestness and humble knowledge(without a show off) is appreciated and liked by your readers(apparent from the responses)
5)you are not biased or partial in selecting or writing about songs
6)your goodwill has attracted like minded supporters who help you by providing information on films, songs, singers, composers etc. Notable among them, as I found in last 6 months are–
a) Mr.Sudhir Kapoor-writes very good and simple articles, full of information about songs and personalities.
b) Mr,Nahm-always provides you with correct lyrics, titbits and useful information, besides suggesting songs.
3) Mr. Arunkumar Deshmkuh-I have no words for him. He seems to know all the old movies, anecdotes and details. His information is unique(Not on net anywhere).May be, as he knows so many languages, he might be getting it from books/articles in various languages. He is a storehouse of information.
4)Mr. Prakash chandra- very good suggestions of songs
5)Lalitha ji / Raja ji – They are not only your admirers but also supporters. Raja ji’s support is important as he himself is a blogger plus many more things.

Note; The second place is shared by MEMSAABSTORY AND DUSTEDOFF.

Atul Bhai,
please accept my congratulations and good wishes for the future.

-I.D.L.Man

In another an year or so, both these readers stopped commenting and disappeared for ever. I contacted the Grandson of actor/singer Parshuram, when he commented from New Zealand, on one of my posts. Similarly, actress Latika’s daughter from London commented and I got in touch with her.

There were days when lot of comments used to be made by the readers. In the last 2-3 years, the comments from the readers have dropped down considerably and noticeably. Difficult to know the reason.

However, since about a month or so I find that once again comments from new readers have increased Hope it keeps growing. Comments play an important role in a Blog. It gives readers’ reactions, additional information, encourages the authors of the post and generally works as a motivation.

Today’s song is sung by Kaushalya. Kaushalya was born at Lucknow in 1929. She was the daughter of the famous dancer Lachhoo Maharaj and actress Daya Devi. Being brought up in the house of dancer and actor, Kaushalya picked up Dance, Music and acting very early. She appeared as a child artiste in films from 1936, when she was just 7 year old. She worked in 11 films as a child artiste. After film Devbala-38, she did roles in Bhole bhale and Uski Tamanna-both in 1939, made by Sagar Movietone. She even sang in both films.

Then came films like Darshan and Ghar ki laaj, both 1941, and Baraat, Bharat milap, Station master and Swapna, all 42. The work poured on her till 1946, when she got married to a boy from Calcutta, when she had gone there for doing films. After marriage she found it difficult to work in films, but continued for some more films, till her last film Ek Do Teen-1953.

In all Kaushalya acted in 27 films and sang more than 100 songs in about 35 films, in her short career time. As a Heroine she had worked with Prithviraj Kapoor, Ulhas, Kumar, Ishwarlal etc.

With this song, film Maaf Kijiyega -1946 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Taal’ which was released in ‘1999’.

I was staying at Bareilly (1998-2004) at that time. I remember to have watched this movie with my family and enjoyed it a lot. I liked it so much that I watched this movie twice. First time with my office colleague and second time with my family. I liked this movie and specially its music too. As was usual for a Subhash Ghai movie, this movie too had a good music scored by A.R. Rehman (who was collaborating with Subhash Ghai for the first time).

‘Taal-1999’ was Subhash Ghai’s home production and it was distributed under his company ‘Mukta Arts’ and ‘Tips International’.

Subhash Ghai was the producer and director of this movie. He co-authored writing with Javed Siddiqui (dialogues), and in writing screenplay with Sachin Bhowmick.

Story of this movie was written by Subhash Ghai.

The star-cast of this movie included Anil Kapoor, Aishwarya Roy, Akshay Khanna, Amrish Puri, Alok Nath, Jividha Ashta, Mita Vashisht, Saurabh Shukla, Supriya Karnik, Prithvi Zutshi, Manoj Pahwa, Rajesh Khera, Bobby Darling, and many others.

This movie had twelve soundtracks including ten songs and two instrumental tracks. Lyrics for this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and music was composed by A.R. Rehman.

The music of this movie was well appreciated and successful.

Today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. On screen Alok Nath lip-syncs in Sukhwinder Singh’s voice and Aishwarya Roy lip syncs in Alka Yagnik’s voice.

10th July 2021 was the sixty-fifth birthday of actor Alok Nath (born on 10th July’1956). We all know him as an established character actor and the various roles he had enacted in the Hindi movies. He made his film debut with 1982 English movie “Gandhi” directed by Richard Attenborough. Later on, he went to act in many ‘TV Soaps’ and Hindi movies. His notable works came in Rajshri Productions’ ‘Maine Pyaar Kiya-1989’, ‘Ham Aapke Hain Kaun-1994’ and ‘Ham Saath Saath Hain-1999’.

On this blog we belatedly wish Alok Nath a very happy birth anniversary and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

To mark this occasion, we listen to today’s song.

But before that, we also wish the singer of today’s song i.e., Sukhwinder Singh a very happy birthday on 18th July.

Sukhwinder Singh was born on 18th July’1971 (18.07.2021 will be his fiftieth birthday). He belongs to Amritsar Punjab. He started his musical career by releasing a Pop song album in Punjabi. Later on, he joined Laxmikant-Pyarelal’s troupe and also got an opportunity to sing under them for the movie ‘Khilaaf-1991’. He went on singing in some other movies which got unnoticed till he sung the song ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ in the 1998 movie ‘Dil-Se’. That also brough him his first ‘Filmfare Award’.

After ‘Chhaiyya Chhaiyya’ he became a household name. And with ‘Jai-Ho’ in the 2008 movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ Sukhwinder Singh got an international acclaim. He has also sung in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, and Urdu languages other than Hindi and Punjabi language.

Let us now enjoy today’s wonderful song composed by A.R. Rehman from the movie ‘Taal-1999’.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Alka Yagnik. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by A.R. Rehman.

With today’s song the movie ‘Taal-1999’ makes its debut on the blog.

Over to the song now …

Today’s song is from the film Maa Baap ki Laaj-1946. The film was made by Hind Pictures, owned by the Producer, Director and Actor- Nazir Ahmed Khan. The film was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-1-1915 to 24-4-1999), who actually specialised in Mythologicals and Stunt films. Today’s film was just his 5th film as a Director, having started in 1942. He was friendly with Wadia Brothers and he directed some Nadia films for them.

The film’s story was written by Prabhulal Dwivedi. It revolved around 2 sisters of different natures like Modern and Traditional. In those days this was a popular theme. Nanabhai had started his career with Wadia’s film Muqabala-42 as director in the name of Batuk Bhatt. That film story was also about 2 twin sisters, having opposite views of life – Modern and Traditional. So Nanabhai had experience of handling such stories. In all such films-till today-it is always the Traditional life that wins, because that is what the audience wants.

1946 was an eventful year. The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The IInd world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only 74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in the Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946.

Year 1946 also saw the Debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ” Debut year” of the Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film Amar Raaj-46

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly a year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the Migrators, after the Partition.

Film Maa Baap ki Laaj-46 had good music too. However, sensing that he may have to migrate to Pakistan, Nazir declined to spend much on the promotion and advertisement of the film. Even then the film was a hit and celebrated Silver jubilee. The MD was A.R.Qureshi. The cast of the film was Swarnalata, Nazir, Kusum Deshpande, Jayant, Majid, Gulab and others. The story of the film was….

A widow mother has 2 daughters-Bimla and Kamala. Elder one Bimla (Kusum) is in love with Sharat (Jayant) and both are modern minded. The younger Kamala (Swarnalata) is Traditional minded. Bimla’s marriage is fixed with Anup (Nazir), who is a traditional boy. Bimla, to avoid the marriage, runs away with Sharat. To save family’s ‘Izzat’, Kamala is married to Anup. His mother Gangubai (Gulab) is shrewd and troubles Kamala very much, but she bears everything to make all happy. Slowly Gangubai’s opinion changes. All are happy with her now.

Meanwhile Bimla and Sharat’s life is miserable as his job is gone and money is gone due to their extravagant habits and modern style of enjoying life. They realise their mistake. Anup gets a job for Sharat. In the end all’s well that ends well.

The film was released on 25-5-1946 at Kamal and Paramount Talkies, Bombay. The film’s lead pair Swarnalata and Nazir got married in 1947, before they migrated. Nazir’s Hind pictures Studio at Dadar was burnt in front of his eyes, during the partition riots. Nazir abandoned everything here and with empty hands went to Pakistan, where he started from scratch and became very successful.

The film cast consists of two unusual names-Kusum Deshpande and Majid. Let us know about them in short.

Kusum Deshpande was born on 20-11-1914 at Nagpur. She came to Bombay in 1930 and worked in Minerva as an apprentice, without pay. She worked in A.I.R. and some Marathi dramas and films. Her first Hindi film was Ghar ki Rani-40. She also did Charnon ki Dasi-41, Village Girl-45, Wamaq Azra-46 and Zamin Asmaan-46. In all she did 20 Hindi films. She married actor Vasant Thengadi on 30-11-1944.

After she stopped getting roles in Hindi films, she turned to Marathi films and had a long and fruitful career in it.

Majid’s name was Abdul Majid Syed. He was born at Farrukhabad in U.P. in 1915. His father was an Overseer. After matric in 1929, he started his business of Leather in Akola, Maharashtra. in 1935, actor, director and producer Nazeer of Hind pictures, introduced him to S.K.Daryani and he got a small role in Sher ka Panja-36 and Sangdil samaj-36. However, from film Bulldog-37, he got side roles and lead roles in films like Gentleman daku-37, insaaf-37, Rajkumari-38, Masterman-38, Zamana-38, Mud-40, Saubhagya-40, Swami-41, Swaminath-42, he also acted in more films like Najma-43, Babar-44 and Zeenat-45.

In all he did over 100 films till 1947. After Partition, he migrated to Pakistan with Nazeer and Swarnalata. In Pakistan he did just 7 films. He died on 24-9-1959.

Today’s song is sung by 2 female singers, but we do not know their names. The lyricist is also not known. With this song, the film Maa Baap ki Laaj-1946 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Editor’s note:-“Maa Baap Ki Laaj”(1946) becomes the 100th film of 1946 to be represented in the blog.

In the early era of Talkie films, few film studios were famous and well established. Most of these were into making Silent films also. Studios like Prabhat, Imperial, Maadan, Sagar, Bharat, Ranjit, Krishna Tone, Saroj, Saraswati, Kamala Movietone and Ploayart Phototone (of Kardar) from Lahore were active in making Talkie films in the first few years. Studios like Elephanta Movietone- Punjab, Oriental pictures-Lahore, Sharda Movietone-Bombay, Eastern Films Ltd.- Hyderabad, Pioneer Films- Calcutta Ajanta Cinetone (Bhavnani) etc. jumped into the fray 2-3 years later and made Talkie films.

Over a period, studios having a strong and solid financial base and own studios sustained for longer periods and the smaller, occasional filmmakers disappeared. As the time went by, some more powerful and healthy film studios like Minerva(Sohrab Modi) and Bombay Talkies (Himanshu Rai and Devika Rani)entered the filmmaking and gave memorable quality films. After few years, ambitious and capable young people working in these studios separated and established their own studios like Mehboob Studios, Kardar Studios, Raj kamal Kala Mandir etc.

This went on expanding till the studio system crumbled in or around late 40’s and 50’s and Freelancing started. This escalated the cost of making films. Films which were made in 40-50 thousands in early 40’s, went up in Lakhs by late 50’s and then on in crores. Now a popular and successful Hero takes his fees in Crores. The cost of higher class cinema theatres’ tickets rose from 1 rupee to 400 rupees for reclining seats and a Blanket if you want to sleep there ! Only one thing remains same from early cinema theatres to today’s luxurious Multiplex theatres and that is BED BUGS !! They are still available free with every ticket !!!

Today’s song is from film Kokila-1937, made by Sagar Movietone. It will not be an exaggeration to say that the First Decade of Talkie films, i.e. 1931 to 1940 belonged to Sagar Movietone. They made 51 Hindi films in this period and many of these films became Hits and Popular . Films like –

1932 Zarina, Maya Bazar and Meerabai
1933 Mahabharat and Premi Paagal
1934 Grihalaxmi and Shehar ka Jaadu
1935 Dr. Madhurika, Al Hilaal, Vengeance is mine
1936 Man Mohan, Do Deewane and Village Girl
1937 Jagirdar, Kokila and Mahageet( playback started in Bombay from this film)
1938 Dynamite, Gramophone Singer, Hum Tum aur Woh ( first film with 3 Heroes) and 300 days and after
1939 Ek hi Rasta, Ladies Only and Service Ltd.
1940 Alibaba, Civil Marriage and Kumkum

These films were Hits or Popular.

Sagar also gave opportunities to youngsters to become big names later in life. Some examples are-

Actors Motilal, Surendra, Sheikh Mukhtar, Yaqub, Kumar, Sankata Prasad
Director Mehboob, Sarvottam Badami,Ramchandra Thakur, C M Luhar, Nanubhai Vakil, Ezra Mir and Kanjibhai Rathod (First Dalit director to get a chance)
MDs Anil Biswas, Pransukh Nayak, S P Rane, Anupam Ghatak
Actresses Bibbo, Sabita Devi, Maya Banerjee, Sitara Devi and Shobhana Samarth ( after her first film ‘ Nigahe Nafrat’-1935, she got a boost with 2 films here)

Surendra and Motilal were initiated in films by Sagar. The pair of Motilal and Sabita Devi was so popular that they paired in 8 successful films. It was also in Sagar that Mehboob, Anil Biswas and Faredoon Irani became thick friends.( it is another matter that AB and Mehboob split in 1940, never to come together again). They made 6 films together in Sagar.
Thus the contribution of Sagar Movietone in giving successful stars in all fields was ,if not better, but at least equal to Prabhat, Ranjit, Bombay Talkies and New Theatres.

Film Kokila -37 was directed by Sarvottam Badami and the music was by Anil Biswas. The cast included the popular pair of Motilal and Sabita Devi as well as Shobhana Samarth, Siddiqui, Maya Banerji, Sitara, Sankata prasad etc. This film was based on the popular noel of the same name, by R.V.Desai (20-5-1892 to 20-9-19540 a leading Gujarati novelist. Another film on his other novel Purnima was made by Prakash Pictures in 1938. The dialogues and songs were written by Siddiqui – who had also acted in this film. He was earlier in New Theatres having acted in films like Pooran Bhagat-32, Rajrani Meera-33 and Chandidas-34. The screenplay was by R.R. Gharekhan, who later changed his name to ‘ Gautam’. As per review of Baburao Patel in his magazine Film India, the film was not very good. however it did good business.

Today’s song is sung by Dattaram kadam- a name I heard first and last time here. Even in Marathi films, he is not mentioned anywhere. The song is good and the singer seems to be an expert. Maybe he was an actor singer on Marathi stage dramas. Anil Biswas was typically very fond of Chorus songs. Almost all of his films will have 1 or 2 Chorus songs. In this film also there are 2 Chorus songs. This film was released on 30-10-1937 in Roxy theatre, Bombay. With this song film Kokila-1937 makes its Debut on this Blog.

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 6
———————————————————

We move further to the next post in this series. Today’s song is from the ‘1972’ movie ‘Shaahzaadaa’.

‘Shaahzaadaa-1972’ was directed by K. Shankar for ‘Amar Chhaaya, Bombay’. It had Rajesh Khanna, Rakhi, Madan Puri, Veena, Karan Deewan, Pandari Bai, Jairaj, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Gulshan Bawra, Sonu Arora, Badriprasad, Halam, Varlakshami.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.09.1972. This movie had five songs written by Rajinder Krishan. Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of the songs in this movie is as given below and songs posted earlier on the blog have been mentioned with their respective date of posting.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 O tere athhroo chun lawaan main Mohd Rafi Being discussed today
02 Na jaiyyo, chhod ken aa jaiyyo meri raani Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 04.08.2020
03 Rimjhim rimjhim dekho baras rahi hai raat Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 29.12.2010
04 Thokar mein hai meri saaraa zamaanaa Kishore Kumar 20.07.2012
05 Pariyon ki nagri se aayaa Lata Mangeshkar

From the above list we can see that Lata and Kishore Kumar had two duets and one solo song each, and Mohd Rafi sang only one song in this movie. And that is the subject matter of this series. I am looking for such instances where Rafi Saab had sung only one song in a movie where music is composed by R.D. Burman. In the previous post we saw one such instance with a song from ‘Phir Wohi Raat-1980’.

In both the movies the other song by a male singer is by Kishore Kumar only. And that made me think if there are movies where Rafi Saab had sung majority of songs and Kishore Kumar had sung only one song. Two such movies immediately come to my mind, and incidentally these two are also Kaka movies, ‘Do Raaste-1969’ and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehendi-1971’ where the music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. May be there are more such instances.

We will bring them here in future posts and enjoy them with a song. 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Mohd Rafi for Rajesh Khanna in this movie ‘Shaahzaadaa-1972’. Video of this song seems to be unavailable as of now and only the audio is available. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

Blog Day :

4575 Post No. : 16182

Today is 26th january (2021), which is republic day for India. Arguably, this is the most important day for independent India, more important than even the independence day, in my opinion.

71 years have passed since India was declared a republic on 26 January 1950. During the past 71 years, we have been through lots and lots of changes, upheavels, trials and tribulations, calamities etc. Thankfully today we find ourselves in a better position than what we were at in 1950. In fact, we find ourselves in a much better position vis a vis 1990.

I was born when the first Prime Minister and first President of India were still around. So I have lived through the eras of all the Prime Ministers and Presidents of India that we had !

During all these decades, some good practices have taken root. On the other hand, we still have some bad practices that we need to get rid of.

Instead of talking about what the government should do, here I will largely discuss what we need to do. Since we are a democratic republic, our behaviour decides what the government does, rather than the other way round.

Here are some of my observations.

1. Someone else will do it:- This attitude, which is basically passing the buck, has harmed India a great deal over the decades. Instead of doing the work ourselves, we wait for someone else to do the job. As a result, that job remains pending. Worst still, that creates a long lasting problem for the nation.

2. Chalta hai attitude– We expect others to be perfect, but we ourselves are far too lax in our on dealings. We can find fault in the batting technique of Virat Kohli, but we rarely judge our own performance in our workplace with the same high standards.

3. Putting self interest before national interest– Look at the demands of any unions, be it staff union or officers union. All the ten points of their memorandum would contain demands about betterment of their perks, not a single demand would be about the betterment of the organisation.

4. Very few people, typically 1 % of the people are supposed to bear the burden of the entire population. For instance, only 1 % population of India pays income tax, and that money is then squandered in giving subsidy to “poor” people instead of helping them train to come out of “poverty”.

5. Wealth creation and wealth creators have been demonised in India. Poor people and Poverty get glorified. This state of affairs should change immediately.

6. Many indians suffer from inferiority complex vis a vis western countries. This inferiority complex is misplaced and is a result of systematic brainwashing.

The above are some of the points that one can think of without much effort.

What do I have to suggest to improve matters ?

I will make a one point suggestion, instead of making too many suggestions. My one point suggestion is, we have to overhaul our education system. The present education system churns our zombies, who lack the ability to think for themselves and are easily brainwashed. It serves the purpose of the self seeking politicians but it has harmed the country a great deal in all fields. Our education system encourages rote memory, rather than application of knowledge. No wonder our manpower cannot even do basic works, forget doing cutting edge technical works. Whatever competent manpower we have are not because of our education system but inspite of this education system.

We have framed our constitutution based on the British Constitution. But we have not framed our education system based on British education system. British (namely Lord Macauley) gave us an education system in India. Britain herself has an entirely different kind of education system, one that does not seek to produce semi literate babus, unlike the case in India. As soon as India had our constitution, we needed to have our own education system. It has become too late now. Seven decades too late, but better late than never. we can still try and ensure better education system for the future generations.

Instead of insisting on same degrees for everyone, we need to insist on vocational training based on the aptitude of students, instead of imposing the same kind of education on everyone.

Failing an elephant because it cannot climb a tree, failing a monkey because it cannot fly, comdemning a goat because it cannot uproot a tree, that is how our Macaulean education system judges its students.

India has requirements of qualified people in all fields. What is happening now is that all people take the same education.Those who score higher marks become engineers, doctors. Those who score lower marks become civil servants. Those who score even lower become clerks. People scoring even lower become peons, guards etc. Those who cannot get any jobs become freelancers. Those who are not good enough for any jobs become politicians. And all these people are not trained properly for their jobs ! A clerk is not trained to be a clerk. A security guard is not trained to be a security guard. When a civil contractor hires workers to execute his contract, the workers like say masons, or welders are not properly trained for their jobs. They have mostly learnt their work from other workers. In my proposed education system, a mason or a welder will need to be trained by a recognised welding trainer, a plumber by a recognised plumbing trainer etc. This is because continuous imporovemnt takes place in all fields of activities. Our workers whether in organised sector or unorganised sector are far far behind in their knowledge and mastery about latest advancements in their fields. Even security guards should have training.

The above discussion is largely for workers in manufacturing and services sector. The same is needed for the agriculture sector where Indian productivity is among the lowest in the world. One reason is that majority of farmers are not educated. Farmers too need to be well educated in their area of activity, instead of trying to earn the same meaningless degree as others.

In summary, our education system should ensure the supply of highly skilled manpower in all the fields. Even cleanliness, which is considered a menial work, is a specialised work, and people who are tasked with this work need to be well trained for this work.

As I have mentioned earlier, we need to identify the aptitude of individuals and give them vocational training based on his attitude. This is what happens in advanced nations. They do not encourage mindless enrolment in colleges for taking meaningless degrees.

We need not reinvent the wheel. The kind of education system that I have suggested in already available in advanced nations. I suggest that we adopt the German education system. It is a tried and tested education system and we all are aware of German products and their quality that this education system helps produce.

Any country can have two kinds of resources- one is natural resources (mineral ores etc) and other is human resources. One will notice that a country can develop only when its human resources are developed, even if they lack natural resources. For instance, Japan, Israel, Singapore are three nations that have negligible natural resources but they are highly advanced nations thanks to their sell trained human resource. On the other hand we have examples of countries (for example African countries) that are under developed despite possessing vast mineral resources.

India fortunately is very well blessed by nature. But we have failed to make the most of our nature given resources because we have not made the most of our human resources. If we harness our human resources, we sill not only utilise them produtively, we will also be able to take advantage of what the expetts describe as our potential demographic advantage (vast majority of population of India being in working ager group, unlike most other countries).

Today (26 January 2021) we are celebrating our 71st Republic day. We have quite a few things to feel proud about on this occasion. American and British media had predicted millions of covid 19 deaths in India. India has proved them wrong. It appears that these media were watching their own countries in mirror. As on today USA and Britain continue to reel under COVID 19 epidemic, ith Britain even “pioneering” a more dangerous strain of this virus. Unlike these countries, India is even offering low cost and safer vacceines to many countries of the nation.
See this thank you message by Brazil. Makes every Indian proud.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Anjaan”(1941). “Anjaan”(1941) was directed by Amiya Chakraborty for Bombay Talkies Limited, Bombay. The movie had Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, V H Desai, Girish, Suresh, P F Pithawala, Gulab, Fatty Prasad, Yusuf Suleman, Saiyyad Mukhtar, David, Reva, baby Madhuri, Arun Kumar, Ibnul Hasan, Bachan Lal Dixit, Om Prakash, Tarun Kumar, Bhargavi etc in it.

One will notice that the song is from an era when India was not even independent, forget being a republic. But still this song is an appropriate song for the occasion. This song is penned by Kavi Pradeep who sore patriotism on his sleeves, that too in an era when it was very risky to do so. In this song, sung by Ashok Kumar and others, they exhort the naujaaan of Bharat (viz the human resource of India) to make the most of the opportunity that has presented itself to them. And the song advises them not to miss this opportunity unlike the missed opportunities of the past.

Pannalal Ghosh is the music director.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala many years ago. This happens to be the 500th lyrics contribution by Avinash Scrapwala in the blog. A befitting achievement for him on the occasion of the Indian Republic day, seeing that he too, like Kavi Pradeep, wears his partiotism on his sleeve.

On this occasion, I ish a happy republic day to one and all. Jai Hind.
