PARISTAAN (1944) was produced under the banner of N R Acharya Art and it was directed by Mahesh Kaul. The star cast included Pahadi Sanyal, Anjali Devi, Kamal Zamindar, Ranjeet Kumari, Sunalini Devi, Master Amritlal, Moni Chatterji, Padma Banerjee etc. From the title of the film, probably many people may guess that it was a film belonging to fantasy genre. But it turned out to be a slapstick comedy though the story by Vaju Kotak was not less than a fantasy.

The moment the image of Ameerbai Karnataki comes to my mind, I remember some of her most popular songs, mostly full of pathos, melancholy, and devotion. In fact, the most popular songs of her singing career come from these genres. She started her filmy career in 1934 as an actor-singer but realising that the potential for career as a playback singer was bright after the system of playback singing was introduced in Bombay film industry in 1937, she confined herself mainly to playback singing thereafter. After her songs in ‘Kismet’ (1943) became very popular, for the next five years or so, she remained one of the top playback singers. Of the total of around 375 songs she sang during her filmy career, more than 50% was accounted for during 1943-48.

The star cast included Wasti, Mumtaz Shanti, Husn Bano, Ghulam Hussain, Abu Bakar, Chanda Bai, Jilani, Sadat Ali, Satya Rani etc. There were 8 songs in the film written by Shams Azimabadi (6) and Sewan Rizvi (2) which were set to music by Gyan Dutt. From the star cast and a couple of songs that I heard, the film seems to belong to social genre, probably a family drama. One song from the film has been covered in the Blog.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 27
———————————————————

When I got the mp3 clip of “nainan jal bhar aaye preet kiye pachhtaaye” of ‘Samrat Ashok’ (1947) sung by Binapani Mukherjee, I checked the song list for the film in http://www.myswar.com and found out that there was another more or less similarly worded song in the movie attributed to Amirbai Karnataki. I thought that this must be another version of the same song. However, I could not get the audio clip or mp3 clip of Amirbai Karnataki version of the song on YT or any other websites. So I wrote an e-mail to Shri Sudhir Kapur whether he had the required mp3 clip. I was fairly hopeful of getting the same from him since I knew during the Mumbai Gangout meets that he had a very large collections of mp3 clips of songs of Hindi films, especially of 1930s and 1940s. And my assessment was right. Within a few hours of receiving my e-mail request, he sent me the required mp3 clip of Amirbai Karnataki version of the song.

Today (17 march ) is just another day in the calendar as far as most people are concerned. As for me, I remember this day quite clearly. Among 17 march of all the years, the year 2007 is especially vivid in my mind.
