Today’s song is from the film ‘Milan’ (1946).

Bengali people, in general, are fond of reading. The literacy percentage of Bengal during last century and before that has been quite noteworthy. The literate population of Bengal is divided in two parts. One is Bhadralok– a term used to indicate upper and middle class – affluent and educated people; and the other is Madhabit (or what we call a middle class in rest of India). Both these classes of society in Bengal were patrons of books. In addition, Bengal also boasts of a large number of very famous authors. Eminent writers like Rabindranath Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chatterji, Sarat Chandra Chatterji, Sunil Gangopadhyaya, Bibhuti Bhushan Bandopadhyay, Satyajit Ray, Mahashweta Devi, Tarashankar Bandopadhyay, Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay, Shardendu Bandopadhyay, Humayun Ahmed, Kazi Nazrul Islam, Michael Madhusudan, Manik Bandopadhyay, Premendra Mitra, Badal Sircar, Sukumar Rai, Jibanand Das, Rajnikant Sen and many others were, and continue to be popular in Bengal.

No wonder, then, that their novels, dramas and short stories became the basis of Bangla films, both in the silent as well as talkie era. In rest of India, almost all major production houses had their own story departments, where many Munshis, Pandits and the likes of them were employed to provide ‘made to order’ story material for films. The Lahore, Bombay and Madras centres depended heavily on mythology, folk tales, history, and stage dramas etc. for their films.

Since Bangla films had their firm stories, their films were closer to the audiences in Bengal and Eastern India in general. This literary sourcing was firmly entrenched in the minds of the film directors of the 1930s to the 1950s, in Bengal. When an exodus of actors, directors and technicians started from Calcutta to Bombay, in the 40s and 50s, most directors from Bengal made Hindi films in the Bombay center, based on Bangla novels, dramas and short stories. Some important examples are, ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (Salil Choudhari’s short story of 1943), ‘Devdas’, ‘Parineeta’, ‘Parivar’, ‘Biraj Bahu’, ‘Yahudi’, ‘Ratnadeep’ etc.

When Nitin Bose left Calcutta and came to Bombay to join Bombay Talkies, no one was surprised. Bombay Talkies was known to attract Bangla talent and gave them opportunities to showcase their skills. Being owned by a Bengali-Himanshu Rai and managed by a Bengali-Shashadhar Mukherjee, Bangla cine artistes were always welcome. For his first directorial venture in Bombay, Nitin Bose suggested Rabindranath Tagore’s novel Noukadubi, first published in 1906. This story was a favourite of producers. Already a Bangla film on it was made in 1932. Nitin Bose further suggested to make it a bilingual film – in Hindi and Bangla, for Bengal and East India.

The year was 1946. Himanshu Rai had passed away in 1940, S. Mukherjee left in 1942 with his friends. Devika Rani had left in 1945. Bombay Talkies was in dire straits already. The powers that be at the company thought that making a bilingual film will open doors to Bengal and other East Indian states. While the Hindi version ‘Milan’ was made in 1946, the Bangla version ‘Naukadubi’ was made in 1947.

Dilip Kumar was an upcoming new hero in Bombay Talkies. He had just done 2 films. ‘Jwar Bhata’ in 1944 and ‘Pratima’ in 1945. He was chosen for ‘Milan’ as its hero. The film needed two heroines. One, Ranjana was already available and selected. For the second heroine, Bombay Talkies gave advertisements in newspapers. From several applicants, a new Kanpur born Bengali speaking girl Meera Mishra was selected.

Meera Mishra’s joining the films generated a lot of interest and excitement because she was the wife of an IPS officer. She was chosen to play Kamala in both versions. For the role of Hemnalini, Meera Sircar was selected for the Bangla version, and Ranjana did this role in the Hindi versions. The role of Ramesh, the hero, was assigned to Dilip Kumar in the Hindi version, and to Abhi Bhattacharya in the Bengali version. The role of  Akshay Babu was assigned to Pahadi Sanyal in both Hindi and Bangla versions.

In a manner of speaking, Meera Misra made her debut opposite to Dilip Kumar as her first leading man. The film was directed by Nitin Bose and Anil Biswas was the music director. Parul Ghosh lent her voice in both the versions. In ‘Noukadubi’ she had five Tagore songs, her only Bengali songs.

Both ‘Noukadubi’ and ‘Milan’ did well. Initially Meera had planned to retire after this one film. However, her husband, Kripa Sindhu Mishra was killed in action during Delhi riots and Meera decided to carry on with her film career. She had a son Jishnu from the Late KS Mishra. Her other films include ‘Abhijatya’ (1949), ‘Eki Gramer Chhele’ (1950), ‘Abarta’ (1950), ‘Sandhyabelar Rupkatha’ (1950), ‘Sabyasachi’ (Hindi-1948, based on Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s ‘Pather Dabi’. Meera played the role of Sumitra) and Bishnupriya (1949). Her other Hindi films include ‘Ghar Ki Numaish’ (1949), ‘Kashmir Hamara Hai’ (1950), ‘Azaadi Ke Baad’ (1951), ‘Chamakee’ (1952), and ‘Chhoti Maa’ (1952). She quit films early and settled into married life again. Her second husband was Mr Ranjit Gupta, Chief Secretary to the Government of West Bengal. She passed away in Calcutta in 2008.

‘Milan’ was produced for Bombay Talkies by Hiten Choudhury, who was with New Theatres earlier. He was the earliest member to leave New Theatres and join Bombay Talkies in Bombay. After Nitin Bose left Bombay Talkies, it was Hiten Choudhury who brought in Bimal Roy to make film ‘Maa’ (1952). Bimal Roy, who had come to Bombay for the premiere of his film ‘Pehla Aadmi ‘ (1950), subsequently settled in Bombay. Asit Sen, BN Banerjee, Salil Choudhury, Hrishikesh Mukherjee and few others too left New Theatres to join Bimal Roy in Bombay.

Director Nitin Bose was working with Dilip Kumar for the first time. That time Dilip had not yet developed the nasty habit of interfering in director and composer’s work. He was still learning and he learnt a lot from Nitin Bose. It seems that the famous hair style of Dilip was also suggested by Nitin Bose while shooting a boat scene for Milan. Dilip acknowledges that Nitin Bose had groomed him.

Later Nitin Bose directed Dilip again for ‘Deedar’ (1951) and ‘Ganga Jamuna’ (1961). Nitin Bose once wrote that during the shooting of ‘Ganga Jamuna’ he was sitting aside on a chair, helplessly watching Dilip Kumar do his (the director’s)  job. By that time Dilip had obtained a Doctorate in this “art of interference”.

Dilip had become famous due to his early tragic films, when he used to die frequently in most of them. In 1948 alone, out of his 6 films, he died 4 times. In the year 1955, he died in 3 films. In the entire 50’s decade he died 6 times. In a total of 57 films, Dilip kumar had died in 18 of them. Interestingly his last film ‘Qila’ (1998) also saw him dead! A real tragedy king indeed !!! By the way, in his 57 films 39 directors worked with him. SU Sunny directed him in 4 films. Nitin Bose, Bimal Roy and Subhash Ghai directed him in 3 films each.

‘Milan’ was based on Rabindranath Tagore’s novel ’Noukadubi’, published in 1925. This story was a favourite of producers. It was produced in Bangla in 1932, 1947, 1979 and 2011. Hindi versions came in as ‘Milan’ (1946), ‘Ghoonghat’ (1960) and ‘Kashmakash’ (2011). The cast of the 1946 version incudes Dilip Kumar, Meera Mishra, Ranjana, Pahadi Sanyal, Shyam Laha, S.Nazir, Moni Chatterjee, KP Mukherjee etc. The story is –

The story is set in 1905. Ramesh (Dilip Kumar) is studying law in Calcutta and has just appeared for his final exams. He is a friend and neighbour of Jogen who is also studying law. Jogen (Shyam Laha) lives with his father Annada Babu (Moni Chatterjee) and sister Hemnalini (Ranjana). Ramesh and Hemnalini are fond of each other and Ramesh visits their house most days for tea. Their association is disliked by another friend Akshay (Pahadi Sanyal) who also likes Hemnalini.

Ramesh has been asked to come back to his village for the holidays by his father but is dissuaded from going by Hemnalini. Ramesh’s father Braja Mohan (KP Mukherjee) is from the priestly caste and lives in the village. He receives an anonymous letter stating that his son is involved with the neighbour’s daughter who comes from a tradesman caste and that he spends his entire time there.

Braja Mohan goes to the city and brings Ramesh back with him to the village. He has arranged Ramesh’s wedding with a poor widow’s daughter. Ramesh tries to convince his father about his involvement with Hemnalini. His father after satisfying himself that Ramesh has as yet not committed himself to Hemnalini prevails upon Ramesh to marry Sushila because of the promise he had given to the girl’s mother. There is a storm at night when the wedding party from the groom’s side is returning to their village by boat. During the crossing the boat capsizes. Nearly all on the boat are drowned including Ramesh’s father and Ramesh appears to be the only one to survive. He sees a woman in bridal dress lying unconscious on the bank. He brings her to his village but soon understands that this is a case of mistaken identity. She continuously checks him when he calls her Sushila and tells him her name is Kamala (Meera Mishra). He realizes there was another bridal procession and their boat too had capsized.

After the formalities of his father’s funeral service Ramesh decides to take Kamala to Calcutta. He finds out about her only living relative, an uncle, and writes to him. A letter arrives telling him of the death of Kamala’s uncle but the sender has mentioned Kamala’s husband’s name and profession. His name is Nalin and he’s a doctor. Ramesh now starts searching for Dr. Nalin. He has so far made no mention about his marriage to Hemnalini or her family nor told anyone regarding the mistaken identity of his supposed bride to avoid any embarrassment to the girl.

On arrival in Calcutta, Ramesh suggests that Kamala get an education. After allaying her apprehension regarding her age he admits her in a girl’s boarding school. Akshay’s sister also studies in the same school and through her Akshay gets to know the truth about Ramesh’s marriage. In the evening he questions Ramesh in front of Hemnalini. Ramesh deflects the question and asks Hem to trust him. Preparations are on at Annada’s house for the wedding of Hemnalini and Ramesh. Their wedding is set for the coming Sunday but Ramesh is asked by the principal to take Kamala home for the weekend. Ramesh postpones the wedding and brings Kamala back from school. Akshay brings Jogen to Ramesh’s house where they see Kamala and on being questioned Ramesh keeps silent. Hemnalini goes into a state of shock when she’s told about Ramesh’s wife.

Her father takes her to Kashi to recuperate. Ramesh decides to leave Calcutta and he takes Kamala with him to Ghazipur. Kamala reads the letter Ramesh has written to Hem explaining the entire situation and mentioning Kamala’s husband’s name. She finally recognizes the truth about her and Ramesh’s situation. She decides to kill herself and leaves the house. She is rescued and comes under Nalin’s mother’s care.

She realizes that Nalin is her husband but finds out that Hemnalini and he are to be betrothed. However, Nalin is not happy about the betrothal as he refuses to believe that Kamala is dead and wants to wait a while longer. Finally the truth comes out and she’s accepted by her husband and his mother while Ramesh and Hemnalini get back together.

The film had 8 songs. Today’s song is the 5th song to be posted. All other songs are also available on You Tube. Enjoy the video song.

“Saudaagar”(1951) was produced by S V Moongre and directed by M I Dharmsey for West Hind Pictures, Bombay. The movie had, Rehana, Naseer Khan, Suraiyya Choudhary, Bhudo Advani, Shakuntala, Ratan Kumar, Balam, K N Singh etc in it.

This movie had ten songs in it that were sung by six singers, penned by three lyricists and composed by two music directors.

Three songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saudaagar”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and chorus. P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this joie de vivre song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Rehana.

I think that this is a nice joyous song just appropriate for the first day of the week, first day of the month and first day of the year that today (1 january 2018) happens to be. I take this opportunity to greet everyone a very happy new year 2018.

“Vikramadiyta”(1945) was directed by Vijay Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The historical movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Ratnamala, Baburao Pendharkar, Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Bhagwandas, Jillo etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Vikramadiyta”(1945) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rajkumari and Manna Dey. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

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

I have not been able to get the lyrics of this song right at one place. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the gaps/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable. The lyrics of this romantic song are in chaste Sanskritised Hindi, which to mind is quite appropriate and extremely suitable for a song of this nature. It is a rare song that deserves to be better known among music lovers. To those who may be wondering, this song is about a ras ka lobhi bhanwra getting trapped inside a flower. The lady is wondering why the lotus flower is swaying despite there being no breeze, and the gentleman (King Vikramaditya most probably) explains that is a bhanwra, trapped inside the flower that is trying to come out. Very nice imagination from the poet.

Who was the first female music director in Hindi film Industry? The answer to this question has changed thrice during the last few years.

It was believed that Saraswati Devi (real name: Khorshed Minocher-Homji) was the first female music director who composed songs for ‘Jawaani Ki Hawa’ (1935), produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies. Subsequently, it was established that Jaddanbai, who composed the songs for ‘Talaash-e-Haq’ (1935) was the first female music director, her film having been released earlier than ‘Jawaani Ki Hawa’. It will be interesting to know as to which of the songs from these two films were recorded first on the respective film’s sound track.

Genius of Jaidev – 24
———————————-

The 1957 film ‘Anjali, produced by Kala Kunj, Bombay (to the surprise of younger generation, our state was called ‘Bombay’ then) and directed by Chetan Anand had music by our Jaidev with lyrics by Nyay Sharma.  This theme song was often repeated in the film. The film starts with melodious ‘alaaps’ by Lata, following the hymns ‘Buddham Sharanam Gachchhaami ….’. Later on there is a chorus lead by Rafi. I am sure this must have been repeated several times.  In the end the video of the last stanza surprisingly emerges on YouTube. (This raises our hope that there must be video of the film available in video cassette form, which may surface anytime, in future, to our delight.)

Since the title portion would not qualify individually, to be posted on our Blog, having no singing words, I combined it in the beginning of the main Rafi and chorus song.  Again the short video of the last stanza emerged, so that too, was combined for this presentation. (achchha kiya na?)

Since Sheila Ramani and Chetan Aanand are seen in the concluding scene, there must have been two heroines in this film – Sheila and Nimmi – for lucky Chetan Aanand.

Jaidev, composed nine melodious tunes, out of ten, for this film. But as far as this classic Buddha prayer is concerned, he totally copied lying down with closed eyes, the Sinhalese original version.
