Today’s song is from film Pardesi-41. This was a Ranjit Movietone film, directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi and music by Khemchand Prakash.

Pardesi seems to be a popular Title for film producers Films with Pardesi title were produced in 1941, 1957, 1970 and 1993. Pardes was made in 1950 and 1997. Pardesi as a prefix to film titles were for 7 films. Pardesi-41 was a significant film for actress,singer Khursheed, because with this film, she became famous and came to be recognised as a singer.

During the early days of sound films in 1931, Calcutta (Kolkata) film centre had actresses like Patience Cooper, Jahanara Kajjan, Violet Cooper, Anwari, Sabita Devi (real name: Iris Maude Gasper), Kanan Devi, Radharani etc. Most of them had graduated from the silent films. Those days, in the absence of playback singing system, actresses had to sing their own songs in the films. So, those with good voices also got chance to act in the films made especially in the 30s. Begum Akhtar, Mukhtar Begum, Indubala, Kamala Jharia etc are few names that come to my mind. Ratan Bai was also one of those who joined the bandwagon of actresses in Calcutta in 1932 as an actor-singer. Incidentally, this Ratan Bai (Begg) was a different actor and as such she should not to be confused with Ratan Bai (Shilotri), the mother of Shobhna Samarth.
