Today’s song is from the film Baadal-1942. The film was made by Eastern Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Zahoor Raja. It had music by Mushtaq Hussain.

Zahoor Raja made his debut as a Director with Baadal-42. besides directing the film, Zahoor did the main Hero’s role and also sang 6 of the 11 songs that the film had.

Though the film was not successful at the Box office, Zahoor’s direction attracted the attention of critics. Seven of the 11 songs were written by Lyricist Tanveer Naqvi, and remaining 4 were penned by Shamim Bhairavi.

Tanveer Naqvi was born on 6-2-1919 in Lahore. His real name was Syed Khurshid Ali. After his education, he came to Bombay and met Abdul Rasheed Kardar- who at that time was making the film Swami-1941. Tanveer was given an opportunity and he wrote just one song which was composed by Rafiq Ghaznavi. However, when Kardar directed “Nai Duniya”-42, for CIRCO, Tanveer wrote 9 out of 11 songs for this film. Naushad was the composer. His songs included the famous Debut song of Baby Suraiya, ” Boot karoon main polish, babu….”

Tanveer’s best period was 1946-47, when he wrote for block busters like Anmol Ghadi, Jugnu and Nadaan-48. He was on top amongst Lyricists, but he chose to migrate to Pakistan after one more film, ” Parda”-49. For next 4-5 years he struggled in the Pak film inductry and then came back to India in 1954 and started writing songs till “Zameen ke taare”-60. Then he went back to Pakistan for good. There he wrote songs in Urdu and Punjabi films till 1971. he died at Lahore on 1-11-1972.

In India, he wrote 224 songs in 48 films.

The Music Director for Baadal was Mushtaq Hussain. This name may not be known to today’s music lovers. Mushtaq was famous as a Classical singer and was called a Ustaad. He started giving music to films in 1933. His first film was Aurat ka pyar-33. he gave music to few films only like Sauteli Maa-35, Balaa ki raat-36, Jaljalaa-36, Bhedi Trishul-38, Baghbaan-38, Pati patni-37, Kanyadaan-40, Baadal-42, Chhed chhad-43, Do ro die-44, Daasi ya maa-46 and his last film was Bombay 49. After this perhaps he realised that the public taste was changing and he left films. During the period of 1938, Naushad worked as his assistant in his struggle days and learnt few things.

The cast of film Baadal-42 was Zahoor Raja, Radha Rani, Urmila, A.R.Pehelwan, S.nazir, Radha kishen ( who left Prabhat after Padosi) etc.etc.

ZAHOOR RAJA (Born 7 July 1918 Abbottabad – Died 1992 England) Pre Partition Hindi/Urdu Film Actor, Producer, Director, Editor, Writer, Singer, Lyricist & Music Composer. 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 A R Kardar. Since he was very handsome and well built man, getting into the Bombay film industry was not difficult. At that time, Kardar was directing ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1939) for Ranjit Movietone and . Kardar took Zahoor Raja 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 Hero 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 ‘Mazaq’ (1943) which he also directed, acted in a negative role and composed its music. 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 hamen bhi na yaad aaya karo’ along with Naseem Akhthar in the Movie ‘Ghazal’ (1945) composed by Gyan Dutt. His last Movie in India before moving to Pakistan was ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946)

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

Hindi film industry is full of ‘Same Name Confusions’ cases, especially for the decades of the 30s and the 40s. The Heroine of this film-Radharani was also one such case. There were two actresses, with same name and same active period. One was from Bombay and the other was from Calcutta. In film Baadal, Bombaywali Radharani had acted.

She was the daughter of a Military Officer. Born at Quetta, Baluchistan, in or around 1920-21, she had a British father and Indian mother. She had total Indian looks. Her initial education and schooling was done in Bombay. She became an expert in Horse Riding, swimming, cycling, driving and skating. She was very beautiful and attractive. At the age 15, she looked quite grown up with distinct features. While in school final itself, she got offers from films. Her first film was Romantic India-36. Being an expert singer, she started singing in films. Next she acted in Badhe Chalo-37.

She was called to Calcutta to act in film ‘ Swaraj ke Sipahi ‘-37. From Calcutta, she went to Madras to do a role in a Telugu film ‘ Bhakta Jaidev ‘-38. Returning to Bombay, Radha Rani acted in Sunehra Baal-38 and then joined Wadia movietone. Here she did 7 stunt/action films.

After this she became a freelancer and acted in 18 more films of different banners. She also acted in Punjabi film ‘ Kurmai’-41. Her achievements in films were amazing. Stepping directly from school classroom onto the Silver screen, in her first 5 years of career itself, she had bagged 15 feature films. This was mainly due to to her striking screen beauty, linguistic dexterity and histrionic versatility. She was a consummate actress, singer and dancer. She was very fond of reading English literature and would spend time reading books during shooting breaks.

She made a good pair with actor Zahoor Raja in 8 films. She acted in 3 films of his production company and in film Badal-42, he directed her. her last film was Rasilee-46. After this film she got married and went to England.

Filmography- Romantic India-36, Badhe Chalo-37, Swaraj ke sipahi-37, Bhakta Jaydev-38(Telugu), Sunehra Baal-38, kahan hai manzil teri-39, Hind ka lal-40, Diamond queen-40, Jai swadesh-40, Bambaiwali-41, Manthan-41, Safed sawar-41, Seedha Rasta-41, Darpan-41, Kurmai-41(Punjabi), Swami-41, Badal-42, Motorwali-42, Sewa-42, Suhagan-42, Jungle Princess-42, Mazaq-43, Mr.Jhatpat-43, Paraya Dhan-43, Sawal-43, Bhai-43, O Panchhi-44, Ghazal-45, Laaj-46 and Rasilee-46.

An interesting thing about the film title Baadal is that there were films made with this Title 5 times. The first time was in 1942 ( today’s film), then it was made in 1951, 1966, 1985, and in the year 2000. I have not seen this film Baadal-42, but from whatever I read in Film India about this film, it was a social film with a novel theme. As the film’s review was not available,I can not guess what the novelty was in the film story. However, in spite of very flattering, encouraging and excellent comments in the magazine, the film was not successful at all. After this debacle, Zahoor Raja floated his own company Raja Cinetone and made a few films, before migrating to Pakistan.

Film Baadal-42 makes its debut on this Blog with this song.

“Veeraangna”(1947) was directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal for Laxmi Productions, Bombay. This “historical” movie had Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adib, Jeewan, Prabha, Badri Prasad, Sankatha Prasad, Shanta Patel, Kanta etc in it.

There were eight songs in the movie according to HFGK, but the details of the singers of these songs are not available.

Here is the first song from “Veeraangna”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Pradeep (writing under the name of Miss Kamal) is the lyricist. Haari Prasanna Das and Manna Dey were the two music directors but the distribution of songs among them is not known. I have assumed that this song is composed by Hari Prasanna Das.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Shobhana Samarth. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Veeraangna”(1947) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Mujhko pyaari lagti hai tumhaari pahchaan (Veeraangna) (1947) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-Hari Prasanna Das

Lyrics

Here is the second song from “Pagli Duniya”(1944) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Butaram Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of this song is available. assuming that Mumtaz Shanti was the leading actress in the movie, this song was almost certainly lip synced by her.


Song-Kyun aankh milaayi thhi gar aankh churaani thhi(Pagli Duniya)(1944) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Buta Ram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

“Neki Aur Badi” (1949) was an Oriental Pictures presentation. It was directed by Kidar Sharma. The movie had Geeta Bali, Pesi Patel, Nazira, Madhubala, Kidar Sharma, Uma Dutt etc in it.

“Neki Aur Badi”(1949) had ten songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the eighth song from “Neki Aur Badi”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and a couple of unidentified male voices. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan, of course.

I have failed to get the lyrics right at many places. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

I also request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the unknown male voices in the song.

With this song, now two songs from the movie are left undiscussed. These two songs are “Ae ree jaa le aa more kaant ka sandeswa” and “man mein prem ki jyoti jale”. Even the details of singers of these songs are missing in HFGK. So unless these two songs get located, this movie will remain unYIPPEED in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to keep a watch for these as yet unavailable songs and sound us out as and when these songs become available.

Do not hinder us
Allow us to go near them
And permit us to narrate
Our tales of miseries
From the lips of our wounds

ye lambi taan ke sotey rahe hain sadiyon tak
zamaana badla hai ab to inhen jagaane do

They have been sleeping in peace
From centuries now
Times have changed
Allow us to wake them up (into today’s reality)

ye motiyon ke qadrdaan karam se be-zaaid
jigar ke phaile huye aabileh dikhaane do

They play in wealth
And they give rewards of pearls
But they so lack His blessings and grace
Permit us to show them
The blisters that spread on our heart

ye chand aish karen aur ye saikdon royen
ye mehlon mein, aur ye farsh e khaaq par soyen

These few enjoy the luxuries
And these thousands weep in misery
They sleep in their palaces
And these on the carpet of dust

isi ko kehte hain insaaf aasmaan waale
khalq hila ke rahenge ghareeb ke naale

(If) this is Your justice and rightesouness
O Our Lord in heavens
Be it so then
That the lamentations of the weak and the poor
Shall shake the foundations of this creation itself

During 1945-47, Hindi film industry went through a difficult phase. The speculative gains made by some businessmen during the period of WWII which were partly chanellised in the film industry, dried up which affected the film production.
