“Holiday in Bombay”(1963) was directed by P L Santoshi for Yugchhaaya, Bombay. This movie, described as a “social” movie, was an entertaing comedy movie in fact. The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Vijaya Chaudhary, Rajendranath, Naseem Bano, Dhumal, P Kailash, Ulhaas, Randheer, Sulochana Chatterji, Rajan Haksar, Jeewankala, Ram Kumar, Renu Makkad, Heera Sawant, Kundan, B B Bhalla, D Dilip, Nazeer Kashmiri, Hublikar, Laxmi Chhaaya etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the seventh song from “Holiday in Bombay”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the identity of the singers as well as the lyricist.

Listening to the song, it is clear that the song is sung by Rafi, Balbir and chorus. Video of the song is available which shows that this song is lip synced by Shashi Kapoor and Rajendranath in a get together situation. This song is supposedly a Lord Krishn bhajan but it is actually an “expression of love” song sung by our hero and his side kick for their respective love interests.

The uploader has mentioned Anjaan as the lyricist and I have gone with that.

Music is composed by N Datta.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the various actors who are visible in the picturisation of the song.

Blog Day : 3531 Post No. : 14182

Today’s song is from film Taj Mahal (1941).

In the last few months, I have written articles on films of the early cinema i.e. from the decade of the 1930s. In these articles, I have introduced few unknown or less known heros and heroines of those times, to our readers. Some of these are Vijay Kumar, Ram Singh, Shankar Rao Vazare, Gul Hamid, Prakash and heroines like Menaka, Radha Rani, Meera Mishra, Meera Devi etc. Today also we will learn about yet another less known hero of the silent and early talkie films – Master Khalil Ahmed.

From the lot of the “brought forward” actors and actresses from the silent to the talkie films, two heros were the true super stars. Master Khalil and Master Vithal. Since they had started their careers from the silent era of the 1920’s, they did not go beyond the 1940’s, when their competition increased and the newer breed of heros took over with ease!

Though world’s first first feature film, originally presented as a talkie ,’The Jazz Singer’, released in October 1927, it took about 4 years more for talkie films to come to India. When it did come in March 1931, there was tremendous enthusiasm amongst the film makers. Initially, however, there was scepticism in the minds of well established silent film makers. Famous film makers like Dadasaheb Phalke and even V Shantaram are on record having expressed their views that talkie films will not survive. However, the same people later on, not only supported the talkie, but V Shantaram became one of the best proponents of Hindi talkie films. Even Dada Saheb Phalke ended his career by making his only Talkie, ‘Gangavataran’ in 1937. (Leela Mishra had acted in it.)

The coming of sound to films changed the film making for ever. Till then what was a fragmented production activity, slowly became an industry. Earlier, silent films were made at a cost of 8 to 10 thousand rupees. Now the talkie needed 15 to 25 thousand per film. Automatically, the hobbyists and poorer film makers disappeared. So did the acting crew who could not speak Hindi fluently or sing a song.

One finds that suddenly, there was a deluge of talented, creative and enterprising people from various professions and different backgrounds to take up the challenges of this new industry. The changing society in India is partly responsible for this deluge. Due to education and attraction to cities, many people were rapidly getting uprooted from their traditional occupations and they were looked forward to these opportunities. For example a motor mechanic Sarvottam Badami became a sound recordist (and later, a director too) and a traditional carpenter like S Fattelal became the great set designer in Prabhat films. An ordinary poster painter, Baburao Painter became a director. Many such examples are available. The deluge was made up of producers, directors, sound recordists, writers, lyricists, singers, technical staff and of course the actors and actresses.

Among the first generation of heroes, namely Khalil, Sandow, Sohrab Modi, Master Nissar, Chandramohan, Prithviraj Kapoor, Motilal, Ashok Kumar, Master Vithal, Jal Merchant, Bilimoria brothers and Saigal emerged as the main players. Among actresses Mehtab, Bibbo, Kajjan, Gauhar, Sitara, Sita Devi, Zubeida, Cooper sisters, Sabita Devi, Leela Chitnis, Durga Khote, Devika Rani, Naseem, Jamuna, Kanan Bala etc. became popular.

Master Khalil Ahmed (variously mentioned as Khalil, Master Khalil, and Khalil Ahmed) was the first ever star of the silent era as well as talkie films from 1920 to 1940s. Born in 1903, he became a hero in Kohinoor’s ‘Gul E Bakavali’ (1924), opposite Zubeida. He was the first handsome and macho hero of those times. He acted with all top heroines of his time. Some of his 30 silent films are, ‘Kaala Naag, ‘Kulin Kanta’, ‘Lanka Ni Laadi’, ‘Cinema Queen’ etc.

He featured in his first talkie film, ‘Draupadi’ (1931), made by Imperial, opposite Ermeline. Then came ‘Daulat Ka Nasha’ (1931), ‘Bharati Mata’ (1932), ‘Niti Vijay’ (1932), Do Rangi Duniya’ (1933) and ‘Saubhagya Sundari’ (1933). In 1934 Khalil went to Calcutta on the invitation of East India Films. His first film in Calcutta was ‘Kismet Ki Kasauti’ (1934). Then he joined Tollywood Studio (Madon Theatres). Here his first film was ‘ Gaibi Gola’ (1935), in which Baby Noorjehan made her debut as a child star.

He was in great demand in Bombay also, so Khalil started doing films in Calcutta and Bombay, by frequently travelling between the two cities. This caused a lot of stress on him, but he always kept his commitments. During this period, he also got married and got children. He settled in Calcutta and travelled often to Bombay to do films there.

Khalil did different roles, including Hindu Gods. He never changed his name. in those days very few Muslim actors kept their real names. Incidentally, during his peak time, there were two more artists named Khalil. One was Khalil Aftab, who was a lyricist and he acted in film ‘Dard E Dil’ (1934) and ‘ The Mill’ (1934) (this latter film was banned and was released later in 1936 as ‘ Ghareeb Parwar’). The other actor was Khalil Khan, who had acted in film ‘Deepak Mahal’ (1940). In all, Khalil acted in 27 Talkie films. He died quite young, on 28-11-1941, at Calcutta. Too much travelling and stress must have taken its toll on him. He was only 38 year old. he left behind one wife with 5 children.

Khalil did 13 films in Calcutta – ‘Kismet Ki Kasauti (1934), ‘Gaibi Gola’ (1935), ‘Miss Manorama’ (1935), ‘Jawaani Ka Nasha’ (1935), ‘Divine Sacrifice’ (1935), ‘Raj Dulari (1936), ‘Bulbul e Iran’ (1936), ‘Parivartan’ (1936), ‘Adarsh Mahila’ (1937), ‘Aflatoon’ (1937), ‘Karmaveer’ (1938), ‘Abla Ki Shakti’ (1941) and ‘Merchant Of Venice’ (1941).

In Bombay, he did 14 films in Bombay – ‘Draupadi’ (1931), Daulat Ka Nash’ (1931), ‘Bharati Mata’ (1932), ‘Niti Vijay’ (1932), ‘Do Rangi Duniya’ (1933), ‘Saubhagya Sundari’ (1933), Typist Girl (1935), ‘Shaitan Ka Paash’ (1936), ‘Khudai Khidamadgar’ (1937), ‘Kiski Pyaari’ (1937), ‘Hamara Desh’ (1940), ‘Pyaar’ (1940), ‘Waayada’ (1940) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1941).

Khalil acted with most of the leading heroines of his time like, Noorjehan (Sr), Jilloo (Zulekha Ibrahim – she was known by Jilloo Bai in her later career), Kajjan- 6 films, Mushtari – 3 films (She died too young, in her teens only), Miss Rose – 2 films, Violet Cooper – 2 films, Radha Rani, Ram Pyari, Begum Akhtar (she was then known as Akhtari Faizabadi), Sulochana, Ameena, Leela Desai, Indurani, Gulab, Ermelin and Sheela etc. Khalil was very good natured and a popular actor among his co stars and producers.

A Muslim by birth, he performed are variety of roles in films. His initial acting phase included roles of Shri Krishna and Shri Ram. Disenchanted by the communal riots during those times, he gave a speech in the Indian Motion Picture Congress, on 4th May 1939. Baburao Patel’s Film India published this extract from his speech- “I have played Hindu Gods in films. I worked under Hindu producers only. I am disturbed by these riots. I am popular among Hindus and Muslims. We are the devotees of Art and Art has no religion.” Indian Film Industry is perhaps the only industry which is truly a secular one, since its inception. Master Khalil Ahmed was an example of that.

The film has 17 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. 3 songs are already posted. This 4th song is sung by Faqir Mohammed. With this song, he makes a debut on this blog. The film was directed by Nanubhai Vakil. His wife Sarojini was one of the heroines in this film, along with her sister Indurani. This Mohan Pictures presentation had Madholal D Master as its music Director (he was murdered on 18th June 1990, in his flat in Shivaji park, Dadar, Bombay. His murderer was never caught). The film was released in Minerva Talkies, Bombay, after Master Khalil’s death. His name in the credits said “Late Khalil Ahmed”. This was the debut film of Baby Suraiya as a child star. What a coincidence! Master Khalil was the hero in the films in which two legends, Noorjehan and Suraiya made their debut as child stars!

Though the song is sung in old style, the song tune is very sweet. Enjoy.

“Pushpaanjali”(1970) was produced and directed by Kishore Sahu for Kishore Sahu productions, Bombay. The movie had Sanjay Khan, Naina Sahu, Om Prakash, Kishore Sahu, Fariyal, Premnath, Lalita Pawar, Manmohan Krishn, Shabnam, Lalita Chatterji, Jankidas, Asrani, Brahm Bhardwaj, Mridula, Nazir Kashmiri, Gaurang, Shahid etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Two of the songs, which were the most popular songs from the movie, have already been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Pushpaanjali”(1970) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Lamikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a “in love” genre of song on Naina Sahu, with Sanjay Khan also visible in the picturisation.

As can be noticed, this was yet another attempt by Kishore Sahu to launch his daughter in the film world, after “Hare Kaanch Ki Choodiyaan”(1967). Like the earlier attempt, this attempt too failed. To their credit, they did not live in denial any longer and called it quits after this attempt.

Today (16 novermber 2016) is the 49th death anniversary of Roshan (14 july 1917- 16 november 1967). He had died at the age of just 50 when he was at the zenith of his career. His untimely death, and also the untimely death of several other stalwards of HFM within a few years (Shailendra, Shakeel Badayuni, Jaikishan etc) marked the beginning of the end of the golden era of HFM.

Roshan had made his debut as a music director with “Neki Aur Badi”(1949). The movie had flopped and Roshan himself was so disappointed that he entertained thoughts of committing suicide. Kidar Sharma, his mentor gave him another assignment namely “Baawre Nain” (1951). This movie was a box office success and its music was well received and that gave Roshan a foothold in the industry. He established himself in the industry and enriched HFM with some memorable compositions.

Music Director Shyam Sharma, a regular employee with HMV (later on, RPG) had in 1970 recorded an Album named “Swar Bahar” that had ten melodious devotional songs by Suman Kalyanpur.

Genius of Jaidev – 47
————————–
1978 social Film ‘Tumhare Liye’ which was produced by ‘Tilak Movies, Bombay’ and directed by Basu Chaterjee, failed at the Box office, may be due to the story of superstitious re-birth theme. It had a good cast including Ashok Kumar, Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha, Neelam Mehra, Indrani Mukherjee, Anita Guha, A K Hungal, Pinchu Kapur, Dinsh Hingu, Brahm Bharadwaj, Ratnamala, Suresh Chatwal, Vijay Hungal, Surendra Rahi, Javed, Ratna, Mumtaz, Kamal Khanna, Pamela, Jajbel, Paro, Sarita, Tina, etc. As if these stars were not enough to make a successful film, Zarina Wahab and Om Shivpuri appeared as guest artists. The songs of the film ware tuned to the lyrics of Naksh Layalpuri, by genius Jaidev, and were very popular among the lovers of ‘class’ music.

Sureeli Suman – 09
————————

His Master’s Voice (HMV) in those days was producing many Devotional and Non-Film Geet-Gazals Albums. In later years the company slowly discontinued such releases, purely due to commercial reasons.

In 1970 HMV released an Album of Suman Kalyanpur viz ‘Swar Bahar’.  It had ten melodious songs, five in each category, Devotional and Geet-Gazals.  In addition to Meera Bhajan, other songs by lyricist Anjan and Yogesh were included in the Album. It was a treasure for the Music enthusiast like me and I had acquired it in the first week of its release.
