An interesting observation regarding the Yippeee process for the film that is getting Yippeee’d today. Regular readers would have noticed a pattern in the manner that the films are getting Yippeee’d these days. Generally, in the case of films with just two or three songs remaining to be posted, the last two (or last three) songs kind of appear at a very rapid pace, almost on a daily basis, one right on top of the other. With such films, the penultimate one (or two) songs appear in quick succession followed by the final song of the film, on the next day.

Not in the case of the film being Yippeee’d today. On examining the list of songs of this film as they appear in the table below, the penultimate song of this film came on board on 12th Jan, 2018. And its Yippeee song today appears after a gap of almost two and a half months. And the reason for this delay – it is yours truly, of course. 🙂

When the penultimate song got posted on 12th Jan earlier this year, I immediately sent a note to Atul ji, requesting for doing the Yippeee honors for this film. The reason is that I wanted to bring on board the video of the song. Apparently the earlier posted songs of the film ‘Bus Conductor’, from 1959, were in video form, as one can make out from the write-ups of the first three songs of this film posted. These first three songs came on board on 2009, 2014 and 2016, and they were earlier available in video form. Now, these songs are no longer available, and the YT account of the erstwhile uploader has been blocked due to “multiple copyright infringements”. So the video clips of these songs are no longer available online. (Once again, the caveat – as far as I can search it online 🙂 ).

I have been able to acquire the video of this film through one of my good friends. I do not wish to say that we are the only ones having a this video film. Quite possibly, the video version is also in the hands of other friends, known or unknown. So anyway, I wanted to upload the video of this song for this post today. But as I was checking the previous posts for this film, I realized what had happened, Then I decided not to post the video clip of the song on YT. And the link that I am using in this post for now, is the audio upload of this song by Sa Re Ga Ma.
[Ed Note: The video clip of the song is now added on Vimeo, as suggested by Atul ji. The link is added below.]

And so, with this song, today we add the 1959 film ‘Bus Conductor’ to the list of films having all their songs showcased on our blog.

The film is a production from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay, produced by Ashok Bhambri. It is a social drama, directed by Dwarka Khosla. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh, reads like – Shyama, Premnath, Amarnath, Maruti, Satish Batra, Sujata, Umesh Sharma, Ramlal, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Ameer Bano, Sadhna, Surya Kumari, Helen, Kanchanmala, Sheela Vaz and Cuckoo. An interesting aside here. Maruti, whose name appears in the list actors, plays the role of a dance teacher in the film. He is the friend of the hero, played by Premnath. As I was watching the credits of the film, I discovered that the story of this film is written by Maruti himself.

The film has six songs. All the songs are written by Noor Devasi. And the music has been composed by the duo of Bipin-Babul. The five songs of this film posted earlier, are listed below.

Dil Se Main Mujh Se Dil Takra Gaya Bus Conductor 1491 23-Jun-09
Zindagi Mein Rang Bhara Hai Pyaar Ka Bus Conductor 10550 29-Nov-14
Man Mein Tere Kyaa Hai Bataa De Gori Bus Conductor 12625 27-Nov-16
Daanv Chalne Ko Hai Bus Conductor 13613 26-Sep-17
Paas Hamaare Aaiye Bus Conductor 13909 12-Jan-18

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, and in the film it is presented as a dream sequence. Shyama is sleeping, and she sees a dream in which she is singing this song, as she plays the sitar, and that she is also dancing to this song. The sequence is filmed as alternating shots that show Shyama playing the sitar and singing, and also dancing simultaneously. Surely possible in a dream sequence only.

As I was checking out the earlier posts, I came across the query from Atul ji himself, as to what is the ‘Bus Conductor’ connection in the film. So I checked out the video. The role of the bus conductor in the film is played by Premnath, who is otherwise a rich person, belonging to an affluent family. The reason that he goes underground and becomes a bus conductor, is explained in the beginning of the film.

Premnath belongs to a very rich family of landlords. He is an aspiring writer, albeit an unsuccessful one. He writes short stories, and sends them for publication to different magazines. His stories are always getting rejected. And so he makes a decision that he will leave his home and its luxuries, and live like a common person, search for a job, and work to earn a living – all this for a learning experience of life, so that he is able to genuinely write about life and people, and make his stories more convincing.

There is an emotionally charged scene in the beginning of the film, in which we see him receive some more rejections in mail, and we see an outburst in which he tells his bhabhi (wife of elder brother) that he is leaving home, and will return only when he has achieved success as a writer. He declares that he forgoes all the comforts and luxuries of his rich-person life, will go out into the world to fend for himself, get a firsthand experience of a common man’s life, and write about it. With this loud and emotionally charged declaration, he departs from his home to start a new life incognito. I must add that the performance by Premnath in this scene, did not sound very convincing to me.

So he leaves his luxuries and finds a job as a bus conductor. The rest of the film is about his interactions with people. He makes friends with Maruti, who lives in a chawl and dreams about being a choreographer in films. He meets Shyama who is also from a rich family, but is forced to ride a bus one day when her car breaks down. She forgets her bag on the bus, giving an opportunity to the make-believe bus conductor to play the honest good Samaritan and take the bag to her home. Which of course leads to more things, as expected.

He also witnesses a murder, as one passenger alighting from his bus is pushed under the wheels of the bus itself – he tries to chase the culprit but is unable to apprehend him. The person behind the murder is connected with Shyama’s family, and story gets into the expected filmy complexities.

Of course, all is well in the end, as the rich girl gets a rich husband to be, the murder is solved and the culprit apprehended – rather killed as he runs on to a railway track as he is being chased by the hero and the police. If the writer wrote a new story and it got published; I must have missed that sequence in the quick review that I did of this film. And the rich-boy-masqerading-as-a-poor-boy returns home to his luxuries with his lady love.

On the whole, it is quite an un-convincing plot, with equally un-convincing performances. And as is always the case, it is the songs that draw us.

But nonetheless, one more film to be Yippeee’d on our blog.

“Intezar” (1973) was produced by Mohan Sehgal and direced by Mohan Singh Kavia for De Luxe Films, Bombay. The movie had Rinku Jaiswal, Baldev Khosa, Padmini Kapila, Vishal, I S Johar, Mohan Choti, Lata Arora, Chandrima Bhaduri, Manhar Desai, Bhushan Tiwari, Kamlakar Date, Bhanumati, Kamal deep, Leela Mishra, Rakesh Pandey (special appearance), Master Rafiq, Baby Reshma, Baby Mumtaz, Narmada Shankar, Radheshyam etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Intezar” (1973) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Lata. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised as a Krishn bhajan on Rinku Jaiswal. The picturisation also shows shady looking I S Johar and others. I S Johar is apparently playing a dhongi baba in the picturisation. I have not seen the movie so I am not sure what is going on in the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

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

“Jyoti”(1969) was produced by A Devdas and directed by Dulal Guha for Chitra Mitra productions. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, Nivedita, Aruna Irani, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Moppet Soorja aka Sarika, Lalita Kumari, Jagdeep, Gopal Saigal, Pardesi, Shekhar Purohit etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the four songs that have been covered in the past :-

Here is the fifth and final song from “Jyoti” (1969) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

The song is picturised as a Lord Krishn bhajan song on Nivedita and her kid. Her kid is shown growing up as the bhajan progresses and by the time the last stanza appears, the kid grows up to become baby Sarika who(she plays the son, I think) joins Nivedita in singing the last stanza of the bhajan. Sanjeev Kumar, not quite as god fearing as his adarsh bhartiya naari wife, is seen tearing his hair apart at all this bhajan singing. 🙂

With this song, “Jyoti” (1969) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

The film that is reaching its Yippeee station today is the 1952 film ‘Anjaam’. A journey that started for this film a little over seven years ago – on 1st Jan, 2011. Just out of curiosity, I checked the list of posts for the songs posted on that date, I find that none of the songs on that day were new year songs. My curiosity heightened, I checked the previous new year days and the ones after this date. I find that on our blog, the tradition of new year songs starts with 1st Jan, 2012. Prior to that, on the three new years that came, we did not specifically have any new year songs. But that is a curiosity, to be handled in another post.

‘Anjaam’ is a social drama that is produced under the banner of Sunrise Pictures, Bombay. It is produced by VM Vyas and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors listed for this film in Geet Kosh is Vaijayanti Mala, Premnath, Kuldip Kaur, Yakub, Dulari, Jankidas, H Prakash, Shammi, and Chitrlekha amongst others. The eight songs of this film are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

Given below is the list of seven songs that came prior to this one.

 

Mere Barbaad Hone Ka Nazaaraa Dekhne Waale Anjaam 3412 1-Jan-11
Meri Naiyya Hai Manjhdhaar Anjaam 10093 16-Aug-14
Rut Mastaani Saamne Hai Raani Anjaam 11212 25-Jun-15
Makki Ke Kheton Mein Aana Ji Ho Piya Anjaam 11274 14-Jul-15
Bol O Baabu Kahaan Challa Chhuda Ke Mera Palla Anjaam 11321 26-Jul-15
Jab Ladka Keh De Haan Aur Ladki Keh De Naa Anjaam 11932 17-Mar-16
Baalam Ho To Aisa Anjaam 13367 25-Jun-17

 

The song that is being presented today – I had not heard it ever before today. It turns out that is a song that is very different from other normal songs. Although it is a full 3+ minutes song, and is published on one full side of a 78 rpm. But it is not a regular song. After a long instrumental prelude, we hear the verses of the song. And then, with just two short verses, spaced out over a little more than a minute, the song again goes back into instrumental mode. The lines that are sung in this song, are only a chorus of voices, and no other specific singer is identified. It may be likely that this song is just an accompaniment to a dance sequence in the film. Just guessing.

With this curious presentation, the film ‘Anjaam’ joins the ranks of films with all songs posted. Welcome ‘Anjaam’ to yippeee-land.

 

Song – Saanwar Ke Rang Raati  (Anjaam) (1952) Singer – Chorus, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Madan Mohan

As I am searching for a song to make the debut post for today, my mind goes to check the anniversaries page, and I find that today is the anniversary of passing away of Pt Shivram. This gives me an impetus and I start exploring the films for which Pt Shivram has composed the music. After going thru the list of his films, as given in the Geet Kosh, I find that although his work in Hindi cinema is confined to about 23 films, there still are some of his films that are not yet represented on our blog. So I search thru his pending films, and I come across this obscure film, albeit from a major banner.

The film is ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ from 1960, and it is produced by V Shantaram for his own banner – Rajkamal Kala Mandir. From the descriptions that I am able to locate, this is a children’s film. The unique distinction that this film carries is that it is the first children’s film to receive the National Award in the then newly created category of children’s films.

The director of the film is Ram Gabale. The songs of this film are penned by Bharat Vyas, and the music, yes, is by Pt Shivram. The list of actors as per the Geet Kosh, reads like – Radhika, Uma Dutt, Shaamlal, Daljeet, Bhagwan, Kiran, P N Bali, Somdutt, Moti Bai, R Khanna, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Rani, Premlata, and George.

My plan was to also provide a brief bio sketch of Pt Shivram. As I scouted the net for gathering information, I came across a blog post by Aditya Pant ji, on his blog ‘Parwaaz e Khwaahish’. This blog post is dedicated to Pt Shivram. As I read through this blog, and checked out the reference materials listed, I find that I could not have done anything more or any better a job that this. I would encourage all readers to please also visit this blog (https://urgetofly.blogspot.in/2015/12/remembering-pandit-shivram-krishna.html), and read this very well researched and equally well written biosketch.

The interesting thing is about the singing voices. For this film, Pt Shivram has got three of the four songs in the film, to be sung by the daughters of V Shantaram – Madhura and Charusheela. This particular song is sung by Madhura Shantaram.

The song is a very wonderful and a very poignant one, albeit a very inspirational song. Keeping in with the spirit of the film being a children’s film, this song is a song of encouragement and motivation. It tells about the difficulties that one is bound to face in life. But with patience and faith, one will surely overcome all such difficulties. A superb song for children.

With this post, now the 1960 film ‘Phool Aur Kaliyan’ makes its debut on our blog.

 

Song – Mann Re Mat Ro, Kal Aayega Tera Savera  (Phool Aur Kaliyan) (1960) Singer – Madhura Shantaram, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Pt Shivram

Today’s song is from film ‘Sheroo’ (1957).

The lead pair in this film was Ashok kumar and Nalini Jayawant. This was quite a popular pair in the 1950s decade. They did 11 films together. Their association started from film ‘Sangram’ (1950) and the last time they came together was after 16 years, in film ‘Toofan Mein Pyar Kahaan’ (1966). In Bombay, their bungalows were in Union Park, Chembur, opposite to each others. Saadat Hasan Manto, in one of his books mentions about their mutual attraction and a failed plan to elope and marry.

Once a pair is successful, our Indian producers, try to repeat them in their films. Ashok kumar worked with a total of about 30 Heroines in his career. He was paired with Madhubala in 5 films, With Devika Rani in 8 films and with Leela Chitnis in 9 films. His record is 21 films with Nirupa Roy – from film ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956) to ‘Dana Pani’ (1989), a whopping period of 33 years. In his times, he probably created a record of sorts.

Ashok Kumar (13-10-1911 to 10-12-2001) was a lucky actor. He did not have to struggle to become a hero. In fact, he started his career in film ‘Jeevan Naiya’ (1936) as a hero itself. He reigned the film industry as a hero from 1936 to 1960, a long period of 24 years. It was from film ‘Kanoon’ (1960) that he switched over to character roles. He worked in 310 films. Though he was in his early and late 40’s, he was a much sought after Hero even in the 1950’s decade. In this decade (from 1950 to 1959), he worked as a hero in 56 film- an average of almost 6 films an year ! In the years 1952 and 1958 he did 9 films in one year. Even as a character artiste, in 1962, he did 9 films.

Film ‘Sheroo’ was produced by SP Pictures, which was a pair of Sant Ram and Pachhi. Ram Prakash ‘Pachhi’ was the younger brother of (Bakshi) Om Prakash (Chibbar) the comedian.

Like his illustrious brother Om Prakash, Ram Prakash was also jovial by nature and had a similar sense of humour. But he had no ambition to become a comedian in Hindi movies. At the same time, Ram Prakash ‘Pachhi’ was in love of Hindi movies and wanted to become a film producer and to be master of his own destiny. One of his friends, Sant Singh, was doing well as a successful art director , who also nurtured the same ambition. They formed a film company PS Pictures and started from scratch by producing ‘Mr. Chakram’ in 1956. The film was directed by SP Bakshi and had music by Husn Lal Bhagat Ram. Bewitching Shyama (may God bless her soul) was the heroine. Next year Pachhi & Sant Singh signed an upcoming director Shakti Samant for their next movie, a crime caper ‘Sheroo’. After the grand success of his maiden directorial venture, ‘Bahu’, Shakti Samant was already signed by Nadiadwalas for two movies i.e. ‘Inspector’ and ‘Hill Station’. After the release of ‘Sheroo’, Pachhi helped Shakti Samant to become a producer and in 1958, he produced and directed the highly successful ‘Howrah Bridge’. His elder brother directed ‘Kanhaiyya’ in 1959 for PS Pictures, which had Raj Kapoor and Nutan, the hit pair of ‘Anari’ (1959) and its music was by Shankar Jaikishan. Financial result of the movie was depressing, as the movie had illogical story.

In 1960, Sant Singh & Pachhi again engaged Shakti Samant for their movie ‘Jaali Note’. They signed OP Nayyar as the music director and the beautiful pair of Dev Anand and Madhubala . Encouraged with the positive response and success of the movie, the producers duo announced a crime movie ‘Hong Kong’ (1962), in colour. This film was to be directed by Shakti Samant with the super hit pair of ‘Howrah Bridge’ Madhubala and Ashok Kumar, along with king of rhythm OP Nayyar. It was decided to shoot the crime movie, at the exotic locales of South East Asia like Singapore, Bangkok, Rangoon & Hong Kong. Pachhi got a jolt when Madhubala opted out from the project due to her ill health and subsequently Shakti Samant also declined to be associated with the venture. Discouraged by the turn of events, Pachhi decided to tackle the problem by taking the bull by the horns and made up his mind to direct the movie himself. He brought the ‘Sasural’ fame Kannada actress B Saroja Devi on board as heroine. It was the last movie (released in 1962) which was made by two friends Sardar Sant Singh and Ram Prakash Pachhi. After this film they mutually decided to end their partnership. Now Pachhi was alone, dejected, but determined to go ahead. He produced a path breaking film which in its time was miles ahead of all Hindi movies and was shot at foreign locales around the planet – ‘Around The World’ (1967). The film turned out to be a debacle.

In 1974, Pachhi produced and directed ‘International Crook’. He got a shock of his life, when censor board suggested many major cuts, after viewing his big budget film. He approached the Appellate Tribunal to seek justice. The Appellate Tribunal, instead of granting relief, objected to the story itself and banned the movie altogether. The fact of the matter was, in his capacity as the president of the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA), he had many face-off’s with the authorities, in the past, for the legitimate causes of film industry. Now it was the payback time for the authorities in power. They harassed him, although the movie had nothing objectionable. It had an escapist story, with usual blending of romance, dance & music. It was shot at various location around the world. Pachhi was heartbroken, but somehow he re-shot some portion, omitted most of the shots & presented again to censor. Censor gave him certificate with A stamp, which was as good as killing half the movie. The final print had lot of continuity jumps & was inconclusive, despite the patch works. The opening of the movie at theatres was worse than the worst, which left Pachhi inconsolable .

Perhaps, it was the destiny. His elder brother Om Prakash had faced it with ‘Jahan Ara’ (1964), and his eldest brother Bakshi Jang Bahadur with ‘Tipu Sultan’ (1959). Pachhi after a while decided to start from the scratch and made ‘Eent Ka Jawab Pathar’, with small star cast and controlled budget. The only luxury, he allowed himself was that he signed Shankar Jaikishan again for music and shot the movie in Vista Vision. The movie was released in 1982 and sadly like a defeated gambler, Pachhi lost once again. Bakhshi Jang Bahadur had already gone and Pachhi also passed away soon after. It was a big shock for Om Prakash, who lost his wife after some time. Pachhi was a jolly and energetic fellow, who regaled his audience by showing exciting foreign locations. He will be remembered for his occasional appearances as a jolly natured person in various movies, and also as a visionary. He is the one who introduced 70 mm format first time in the Indian film industry.
[Note: The above bio sketch is based on material received from Shri MN Sardana.]

The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar,  Nalini Jayawant, Anup kumar, Madan Puri, Chaman Puri, Om Prakash, Leela Mishra, Shyam Kumar,  Krishna Kant etc etc. The name of Krishna Kant or KK is known to many people. Krishnakant (15-9-1922 to 24-10-2016) was a noted character actor of long standing. His career spanned from 1943 to 1989, a whopping 46 years. After retirement he had settled in Surat, Gujarat.  His life story has been made into a Gujarati book ‘Guzara Hua Zamana’ written by the famous author Shri Biren Kothari ji. He has gifted me a copy of this book. Reading this book takes you into those times. KK had a knack of telling the history in an interesting way, with lot many photographs. Till the last day (94 years) his memory was excellent. During my visit to Surat in early 2016, I could not meet him, due to paucity of time. This will pinch me forever. Our Sudhir ji and Bakshish Singh ji have met him.

Krishnakant acted in 109 Hindi, 16 Gujarati, 2 Bangla and 2 English movies. He has also directed 2 Hindi and 13 Gujarati films. In addition, he was active on TV in his later years. He acted in 8 Hindi and 6 Gujarati serials and directed 3 Hindi serials. He also acted in 1 Hindi and 7 Gujarati stage dramas. Here is his short bio sketch,

Krishnakant (15-9-1922 to 24-10-2016)

Gujarati and Hindi actor and director born in Howrah, Bengal, as Krishnakant Maganlal Bukhanwala. Son of a textile engineer; educated in Surat and in Bombay. Obtained a diploma in radio and electrical engineering (1940); then joined the Rooptara Studio in Bombay, working in the sound department. Assisted Nitin Bose for five years, then worked with Aravind Sen on ‘Muqaddar’ (also acting in it) and with Subodh Mukherjee (‘Paying Guest’, 1957). First major acting role in Phani Majumdar’s ‘Andolan’; other notable roles are a paralytic in Amiya Chakravarty’s ‘Patita’ and the villain in Shakti Samant’s ‘Detective’. Left films in the late 1950s to concentrate on Gujarati theatre work (e.g. Pravin Joshi’s Manas Name Karigar) mainly with Harkrishen Mehta’s group. Returned to cinema in the early 70s; turned to direction with Dakurani Ganga, adapting Mehta’s novel Pravaha Paltavyo. Directed a series of Gujarati films based on plays or films from other languages: e.g. Visamo based on Harkrishen Mehta’s play, in which he acted the role of an old teacher, recalling Paranjpe’s Oon Paoos (1954) and Panthulu’s School Master (1958). Also adapted Anant Mane’s Manini (1961) as Maa Dikri. With these films he introduced a novel style of urban entertainment to Gujarati cinema, although relying on conventional reformist melodrama plots about the joint family, the generation gap and the exploitation of women. Also noted actor on Hindi and Gujarati television.

(Adapted from Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema)

‘Sheroo’ is about a soldier of second world war who returns to his town for a peaceful retired life. Instead he has to deal with the Government babus and various rules. For a soldier, this indiscipline, corruption and lethargy was beyond tolerance. He is sad when his mother dies and very furious when his  wife is kidnapped by villains of the town. Frustrated Sheroo resorts to his gun to solve the problem.

I remember having seen a film of Nana Patekar. The film was ‘Prahar’ (1991). The story has similarity except the end. After 35 years Hindi cinema had become more direct and the end of these two films having similar content was entirely different. Instead of subtle and suggestive results, Nana Patekar is shown to punish the enemies of the society with death penalty, unlike the ‘Sheroo’ of 1957. This also reflects our modern society thinking.

The music is by Madan Mohan and he has given some wonderful songs. The top 2 songs, one by Rafi (“O Mati Ke Putle, Itna Na Kar Tu Gumaan”) and the other by Lata (“Naino Mein Pyar Doley, Dil Ka Qaraar Doley”) are already discussed. Today’s song, byManna Dey is the third top song. This is the 5th song from Sheroo to be discussed here. Enjoy this melodious classical based bhajan. . .

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is from a film called ‘College Girl’ from 1978.  It is produced by Shantilal Soni and directed by SD Narang. The star cast includes Sachin, Bindiya Goswami, Rita Bhadhuri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Urmilla Bhatt, Paintal, Bhagwan, Heena Kausar, Sudhir, Shobhana Shah, Jagdish Raj, Karan Diwan, Chand Usmani amongst others.

The film has seven songs of which the most famous is “Pyar Manga Hai Tumhi Se Na Inkaar Karo” which is sung by Kishore Kumar and written by Indeevar. This is already posted on our blog. Another song by Mohd. Rafi “Phoolon Ki Tarah Wo Hansti Thi” which is penned by Dev Kohli has also been posted. And I agree with Atul ji, as he has written in that post – If Bappi Lahiri’s songs like this did not get popular then one should not blame him for later on composing songs of the nature that required less creativity but yielded rich dividends for him.”

Now here is the third song from the movie. This is another surprise from Bappi Lahiri. First, it is a bhajan and he has Bharat Vyas (!!!) as the lyricist. Ok it is in Yesudas’s voice, not surprising as Yesudas has sung for Bappi Lahiri in ‘Lahu Ke Do Rang’ and ‘Haisiyat’. But when I came across this song the surprises didn’t end. The song is lip-synced by Dr. Shriram Lagoo. I can think of only one or two other movies where Shriram Lagoo has had songs to lip sync – one in ‘Dooriyan – “Khota Paisa Nahin Chalega” (playback by KN Sharma) and the other in ‘Kinaara’ – “Meethe Bol Boley Boley Paayaliya“(playback by Bhupinder).

The bhajan starts at the home and then the family proceeds to a temple which reminds me of a temple attached to an ashram in Mumbai’s Vile Parle area, which I have frequented a number of times before marriage. It was a very peaceful place with lot of space for us children to run about. Going by what we see in the song it looks like Bindiya is sad about something as her eyes are constantly moist and Rita Bhadhuri looks like the more playful of the two sisters. Chandrani Mukherjee’s is the female voice in this song.

Yesterday, 10th January was Yesudas’ birthday. He turned 77. He is a maestro of classical music and is a huge fan of his guru Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar, Dr. M Balamurali Krishna and Mohd Rafi. Having started his playback career in the 60s in Malayalam followed by the other South Indian languages his Hindi debut came in 1971; though the first movie that released with a song sung by him is ‘Chhoti Si Baat’ in 1976 followed by ‘Chitchor’. He then went on to sing for many Bollywood movies. He has been awarded the Padmashri, Padma Bhushan and Padma Vibhushan. He has won the national award seven times for best playback singing. He has sung in almost all Indian languages except Konkani, Assamese and Kashmiri. Just as the “Venkateswara Suprabhatam”, the good morning shloka played at Balaji temple in Tirupathi, is associated with MS Subbalakshmi, “Harivarasanam” – the good night shloka played at Ayyappa Temple in Sabarimala – is in the voice of KJ Yesudas.

Wishing a belated happy birthday to the ‘Gana Gandharva Dasettan’, as the Malayalees love to address him, alias Yesudas.

Song – Nahin Chaahiye Rang Mahal (College Girl) (1978) Singer – Yesudas, Chandrani Mukherji, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Bappi Lahidi
Yesudas + Chandrani

Lyrics

nahi chahiye rang mahal

sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
sukh ke badle dukh dene ki
agar bhawana teri
dukh ko sehne ki shakti de
yahi prarthana meri
kisi ke aage hath na phailaayen. . .
apni mehnat ka sukh paaye
itna de vardaan
hum to mange tujhse malik
ek santosh ka daan
ki ghar ghar me khushhali ho
sada sukh ki haryali ho
nahi chahiye rang mahal
na dhan daulat ki shaan
hum to mange tujhse malik

Today’s song is from film ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962). This film was about the divine quality of brotherly love between step-brothers, like Ram-Laxman or Ram-Bharat. The film had its quota of all possible tear jerking emotions and the artful close relatives who would enjoy the sorrow and misery of the otherwise united family. Actually, this was a most suitable story for a south Indian film, like AVM, who specialised in such movies.

This film’s story was based on famous Bangla author Sarat Chandra Chatopadhyaya’s novel ‘Baikunther Will’ (1920). There was another novel containing the word “will”, viz ‘Krishnakanter Will’ which was penned by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay in 1878.

These novels became the basis of several films in Bangla, Hindi and Tamil etc. The first silent movie came in 1927. Its Hindi version came in 1932 as ‘Krishnakant Ka Wasiyatnama’. Its latest Bangla version came in 2007 and Tamil film ‘Rohini’ came in 1953. However ‘Baikunther Will’ was not that popular and only one Bangla and one Hindi film was based on this novel. Screenplay and dialogues of Sautela Bhai were by Dev Kishen and film was directed by Mahesh Kaul.

Mahesh Kaul (1911-1972) was born in Lahore and educated in Moni College, Nagpur. After graduation, he worked as a journalist and then as a bank manager. He then started his career in films as a lyricist and dialogue writer. He debuted as an actor in KA Abbas scripted film ‘Naya Sansar’ (1941) and played Dronacharya’s role in film ‘Mahatma Vidur’ (1943). He was also in ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942). His first film as a director was ‘Angoori’ in 1943. Then came ‘Paristan’ (1944). He produced and directed film ‘Gopinath’ (1948), with Raj Kapoor and IPTA actress Tripti Mitra. Some of his major directorial ventures were ‘Naujawan’ (1951), ‘Akhri Dao’ (1958), ‘Talaaq’ (1958), ‘Kagaz Ke Phool’ (1959). As an actor his notable films are ‘Sautela Bhai’, ‘Palki’ (1967), ‘Sapnon Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971) etc. His last film ‘Agni Rekha’ came after his death, in 1973.

The cast of film ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) is Guru Dutt, Bipin Gupta, Pranoti Ghosh Bhattacharya, Rajkumar, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Ratna, Kanhaiyalal, SN Bannerji, Honey Irani, Sarosh irani etc. The music was composed by Anil Biswas.

By the time he was working on this film, Anil Biswas had lost interest in Bombay film world. The major reason being that with many new composers around, his demand had significantly diminished. He got only one more film after this – the film by his friend Motilal – ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965). He was now looking for an alternative avenue in the field of music. He tried business outside music, but did not fare well at all. Due to all this and being unable to produce what the changing taste of the audience wanted, made his music most ordinary. But then, a diamond is a diamond. He gave a gem song “Ja Ja Re Baalma” in this film.

In the cast one finds two interesting names. One is Raaj kumar and the other is Sarosh Irani. For a long time, inspite of having seen the film, I was under the impression that this was an early film of Raajkumar ( Jaani wala). When Sudhir ji discussed a song from this film here, on 5-5-2011, I commented forcefully that this was the same Raaj kumar who was famous for his dialogue-bazi. Dear Sudhir ji tried to bring sense to the discussion, by giving some proof claiming that he was somebody else, but I was not convinced. Afterwards, we had a lot of emal exchange on the identity of this actor, in which even Dr.Surjit singh ji also jumped in with some photographs. Anyway, that time the discussion remained incomplete and indecisive, without any conclusion.

Later, however, I realised that I was wrong in this case and others were right. ‘This’ Rajkumar indeed was someone different. I started searching for details and found that there were actually 5 Rajkumars operating at the same time in Hindi films. Almost in the same period. The Maitri Manthan blog was also trying to solve this mystery and they were successful. ‘This’ Rajkumar was identified as Rajkumar Khatri. I have very recently given all his details in my post on the song “Jaag Re Jogi Jaag Re” from the film ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953) in August 2017, hence I am not repeating that here.

I wish to draw your attention to the other interesting name – Sarosh Irani, in the cast of the film. From the name I suspected that Sarosh might be related to Daisy/Honey Irani. I remember in 2011, we were debating if Sarosh is a male or female and our Raja ji had confirmed that it was a male name indeed. I once again wish to thank the Maitri Manthan blog which located and intervieed the daughter of Sarosh Irani. I reproduce here a concise adaptation of his biography as it came out from the interview, for our readers,

Sarosh ji was born to Perin and Noshir Irani on 7 August, 1948 in Bombay. He is third among five siblings, namely, MenkaBunnySaroshDaisy and Honey. In 1979 he married Mona ji  and the couple is blessed with two lovely daughters, Sabah and Delnaaz. He did his initial schooling in Deolali’s well-known boarding school, The Barnes School. After he joined the film industry he went to St. Teresa’s High School in Bandra.

After his stint as a child-actor he and his brother, Bunny started their own construction company, B Irani S Irani.  In 1976 looking at favourable opportunities he went to Iran where he worked in the construction business. When the war broke out he was forced by the family to return and he came back to India with his wife towards the end of 1983. On his return he joined his brother Bunny (now retired) who by then was looking after the Irani CafeB Merwan which was started by their grandfather.

Sarosh ji’s first film as a child-actor was Masoom released in 1960.  He was finalised to play the eldest of the three siblings in the film. Little Honey Irani was chosen to play his younger sister. The song “Nani Teri Morni Ko More Le Gaye picturized on her, sung by Ranu Mukherjee.

Sarosh ji says “Satyen Bose was a good director. He had a lot of patience, he would wait till we gave the shot just like he had visualised. He would keep encouraging, even enact and show us at times. He was very friendly, never rude. I had a nice time shooting with him. Soon I got offers for Aarti (1962) and Sautela Bhai (1962). I started liking acting.

Tarachand Barjatya‘s Aarti (1962) was directed by Phani MajumdarAlok Bharati‘s Sautela Bhai (1962) directed by Mahesh Kaul was based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay‘s “Baikunther Will” and had Pranoti GhoshBipin GuptaGuru DuttRaj Kumar and Kanhaiyalal playing pivotal parts. It’s a story of two step-brothers, the elder one a good-hearted rustic played by Guru Dutt and the younger, an educated weakling, spoiled by his crooked friends played by Raj Kumar. The film was honoured with the All India Certificate of Merit for the Third Best Feature Film at the 10th National Film Awards. The film is also known for Guru Dutt’s best ever performance as an actor. Sarosh ji played his childhood part. This adjoining scene from the film made us instant admirers of this child star.

Sarosh ji did a total of 5 films as a child actor – Masoom (1960), Aarti (1962), Sautela Bhai (1962), Man Mauji (1962) and Grahasti (1963). By the time Grahasti (1963) was released Sarosh ji was about 15 years old, an age when one is neither a child nor an adult and child stars hardly get acting assignments. In his short acting career Sarosh ji has left a mark, Masoom (1960) and Sautela Bhai (1962) are among our most loved films.

Around 1967 Sarosh ji joined his brother-in-law Kamran as an assistant director. The first film he assisted on was Watan Se Door (1968) which had Dara Singh and Nishi in leading roles. He assisted Kamran ji on about six films including Chalbaaz (1969) and Aisa Bhi Hota Hai(1971). Since then he hasn’t been associated with the film Industry directly but is glad to see the next generation, his nephews and nieces, Farah KhanSajid KhanFarhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar do well and make a mark in the entertainment  industry.

The story of the film Sautela Bhai is…..

Baikunth Muzumdar (Bipin Gupta) is a small time grocery merchant, having property and money in a village. After his first wife’s death, who has borne him a child, he gets marries again to Bhawani (Pranoti Bhattachrya). Contrary to everybody’s fears, Bhawani gives her love to Gokul, the infant. When she gets her own son, Vinod, both brothers love each others, like Ram-Laxman. Gokul (Guru Dutt) looks after family business, while Vinod (Rajkumar Khatri) goes to Calcutta for college studies. There, he gets into bad company and starts drinking etc.

Meanwhile, Baikunth dies after making a will, giving all property to Gokul, on wife’s instructions, as she is sure that Gokul will look after Vinod very well. When Vinod comes back, he is taunted by Gokul’s wife and father in law (Kanhaiyalal). Vinod thinks, being a step brother, Gokul has instigated this. He leaves the house with his mother against her will. He also plans to put a case against Gokul.

When Gokul learns all this, he goes to Vinod’s house, drags him out, beats him and gives away all the property to him in exchange of his love, which he professes with tears. Seeing all this, Vinod repents and realises how much Gokul loves him. He begs pardon and then all is well in the end. (646)

The film had 8 songs. 3 songs are already discussed. Today’s song is the fourth song. The situation of the song is, folk singers and dancers depict the love of Ram, Laxman and Bharat, when Ram is ordered to 14 years’ exile and Bharat is to be crowned as per Kaikeyi’s wishes. The song and scenes are symbolic of love between ‘Sautela Bhais’ of Ramayana. The young Gokul and Vinod are watching this drama, sitting on one mother’s lap, while the family too watches this. One of the singers is Pankaj Mitra, about whom I do not know anything. As per HFGK, Anil Biswas used 9 playback singers for 8 songs. Pankaj Mitra, Biswas and Arun Dutt are unfamiliar names. Pankaj Mitra seems to have sung songs in some Hindi films like ‘Sagina’ (1974), ‘Ganga Dhaam’ (1980), ‘Phagun’ (1973), ‘Mera Jeevan’ (1976), ‘Kinaara’ (1977), ‘Ab Aayega Mazaa’ (1984), ‘Grih Pravesh’ (1980), ‘Rihaaee’ (1980), ‘Raja Hindustani’ (1996) and ‘Mriggya’ (1976).

सुम राम का वन गमन बेचारे भरत अकुला उठे
सुम राम का वन गमन बेचारे भरत अकुला उठे
लौटे अवध को तुरत निज मात पर झुझला उठे
लौटे अवध को तुरत निज मात पर झुझला उठे
इस राज के बदले अगर तुम मांगती मेरा मरण
इस राज के बदले अगर तुम मांगती मेरा मरण
मैं दुख ना पाता चला जाता
छू कर तेरे चरण
गए राम वन में
हाए राम
गए राम वन में
और करूँ मैं राज तो धिक्कार है
धिक्कार है
धिक्कार है
मेरे जनम पर धिक्कार है
लौटा ना लाऊं राम को
तब तक नरक जीना मेरा
है लहू पीना तब तलाक
जल भी यहाँ पीना मेरा

व्याकुल वाणी भरत की
गूंज रही चहुं ओर
भैया चलो
लौट चलो
रो रो तात ने प्राण गँवाए
भैया चलो
लौट चलो
रो रो तात ने प्राण गँवाए
सिया राम गंवा के अवध पुरी ने
दोनों नयन गँवाए
भैया चलो लौट चलो
ये आँसू कोई जोड़ सके तो
एक सागर बन जाये
दो बोल हैं मुख पे लोगों के
एक राम दूजा हाए
एक राम दूजा हाए
एक राम दूजा हाए
भैया चलो लौट चलो
रो रो तात ने प्राण गँवाए
भैया चलो लौट चलो

राम ना लौटे तो उनके
चरणों के निशानी ले कर
चले भरत
के राज करेगी
तब तक यही अवध पर
राम जय जय राम
राम जय जय राम
सिया राम जय जय राम
