During 1966-72, I used to watch one Hindi film almost every week-end. I had only two main criteria for selecting a film. First, I should be able to procure a ticket without a long queue either in advance or current booking. Second, the film should be from a good banner which meant that ‘B’ and ‘C’ grade films were out of my reckoning.

‘Aradhana’ (1969) was one such films which fitted my criteria. I watchedit in a theatre during the first week of its release. There was no problem in booking the ticket as Rajesh Khanna had not become a ‘phenomenon’ at that time, a term which one of the film magazines had used for him after the success of this film. While I was acquainted with the names of most of the main actors, the actor who had done the role of Sharmila Tagore’s father was a new face for me. His performance as a distressed father whose daughter has become a widow, carrying her fiancé’s child before formally getting married, had remained embedded in my mind with the song, safal hogi teri araadhana playing in the background. It was after a few months that I came to know that the actor in that role was Pahadi Sanyal, a name that I heard for the first time. Now this sounds surprising for me.

It was a sort of paradox that while I was not aware of Pahadi Sanyal as an actor in 1969, I was acquainted with his daughter, Luku Sanyal who was a lecturer in English literature in my college (K C College, Churchgate) during my college days in 1966-69. It was only when she started reading news in English on Doordarshan, Mumbai in 1972 that I came to know that she was the daughter of Pahadi Sanyal.

It took me another four decades to know that Pahadi Sanyal was also a good singer. That was after I joined the Blog sometime in 2011.

Pahadi Sanyal (22/02/1906 – 10/02/1974) and K L Saigal were contemporaries in New Theatres, both of them starting their filmy career almost the same year (1932). Apart from Bengali, Pahadi Sanyal was fluent in Hindi, Urdu and English. This qualified him to work as a singer-actor in most of the bilingual films (Bangla and Hindi) produced by New Theatres during 1933-40. The bilingual films included ‘Rajrani Meera’ (1933), ‘Chandidas’ (1934), Dhoop Chhaaon’ (1935), ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Karorepati’ (1936), ‘Vidyapati’ (1937), ‘Adhikar’ (1938), ‘Sapera’ (1939), ‘Haar-Jeet’ (1940). He also acted and rendered songs in ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1933) and ‘Kaarwaan-E-Hayat’ (1935). In some of these films, Pahari Sanyal worked with K L Saigal and also rendered songs with him.

Despite being a trained musician and singer in Hindustani classical music from the prestigious Marris College of Music, Lucknow, Pahadi Sanyal had to work under the shadow of K L Saigal whose songs were very popular and thus sure shots for the box office success of the films. I have seen many films of Pahadi Sanyal and K L Saigal working together and there is no doubt that K L Saigal was a better singer than Pahadi Sanyal. But when it comes to acting I felt that latter’s acting calibre was higher than that of K L Saigal.

After completing ‘Saugandh’ (1942), Pahadi Sanyal shifted his base to Mumbai in 1942. During his Mumbai stint, he acted in ‘Saheli’ (1942), ‘Sharaafat’ (1943), ‘Inkaar’ (1943), Mohabbat’ (1943), ‘Anban’ (1944), ‘Paristan’ (1944), ‘Kadambari’ (1944), ‘Preet’ (1945), ‘Malan’ (1946), ‘Milan’ (1946) among others. He was a lead actor in many of the films in the 1940s in Mumbai and he sang for himself in all these films.

Some time in the late 1940s, Pahadi Sanyal went back to Kolkata and worked in Bangla films but often visited Mumbai to work in Hindi films in the 1950s and 60s. By early 1950s, Pahadi Sanyal had started doing character roles.

While writing articles under the series ‘Hindi Songs in Bangla Films’ for the Blog, I had occasion to watch many Bangla films and Pahadi Sanyal had acted in some of these films. His role as a Psychiatrist in ‘Deep Jeley Jai’ (1959) was noteworthy for his long monologues with few dialogues delivered in chaste English. I have also seen its Hindi remake, ‘Khamoshi’ (1969) in which Nazir Hussain played the role of Psychiatrist but in my view, he was a shade lower in performance than the one by Pahari Sanyal.

In ‘Uttar Falguni’ (1963) and its Hindi remake, ‘Mamta’ (1966), Pahari Sanyal had a small role of a prosecution lawyer. Here he was pitted against the defence lawyer, Bikash Roy/Ashok Kumar. It was an interesting dual of natural actors in the court room to watch. In ‘Alor Pipasa’ (1959), Pahari Sanyal played the role of a senior doctor who tells the story of a mujra singer to his junior doctor (Asit Baran) who turns out be the mujra singer’s son. The narration of the story in a flash back mode by the senior doctor in tight to medium close-up shots shows the confidence the director of the film on the ability of Pahadi Sanyal to give effective facial expressions along with smooth dialogue delivery. In Bangla cinema, some of the character actors like Pahadi Sanyal and Chhabi Biswas, thanks to their acting prowess, commanded status almost equal to that of the lead actors. There are some more such Bangla films where Pahadi Sanyal has given memorable performance even in small roles.

During the 4 decades of his filmy career, Pahadi Sanyal worked in 56 Hindi films and almost an equal number of Bangla films. In addition, he also worked in an English film, ‘The Householder’ (1963).

As a singer in Hindi films, Pahadi Sanyal was active from 1933 to 1946 during which time, he rendered about 50 songs as an actor-singer. His last Hindi film song appears to be wo kahen aap ki do chaah ka inaam mujhe from ‘Milan’ (1946).

About a week back, I uploaded a rare song from the film ‘Mohabbat’ (1943) ‘tum shyaam badariya main hoon mor’ rendered by Pahadi Sanyal which I am presenting here. The film was directed by Phani Majumdar. Shanta Apte and Pahadi Sanyal were in the lead roles in the film with the supporting cast of Jagdish Sethi, Sunalini Devi, K C Dey, Yashodhara Katjoo, S Nazir etc.

There were 10 songs in the film which were set to music by Hari Prasanna Das. Except for Meera Bai bhajan, the lyricist/s for remaining 9 songs are unattributed.

With this song, ‘Mohabbat’ (1943) makes its debut on the Blog.

Hullo Atuldom

My last post on the blog mentioned that Moushumi Chatterjee had co-starred Vinod Khanna in a few movies. Today’s song is from one such movie.

“Hatyara” (The Murderer- 1977) was a movie which was directed by Surendra Mohan and produced by Sunil Sharma and J.R. Shah. Its cast consisted of Vinod Khanna (in a double role), Priyadarshini, Moushumi Chatterjee, Rakesh Roshan, as the romantic couples and Pran, Nirupa Roy, Raj Mehra, Chand Usmani as the elders, Kanhaiyalal, Manmohan, Dev Kumar were the spoilsports of the story. The cast also has Abhi Bhattacharya, Shahu Modak (in a blink and miss appearance), Gulshan Bawra and Rajesh Khanna in a special appearance. Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood and Laxmi Chhaya in guest appearances.

Pran and Predeep Kumar played bandits, who accidentally kill a man leaving his wife and son destitute. This sets Daulat Singh (Pran) thinking that it is easy to kill but difficult to rectify the “PAAP”. He surrenders and reforms. He returns from jail to a family of grownup children who are in love and he is only too glad to get the kids married. The hitch or stumbling block for him (Daulat Singh) is his past has caught up with him in the form of Inspector Prakash (Rakesh Roshan) whose mother (Nirupa Roy) recognizes the bandit and refuses to get her son married to a bandit’s daughter. The rest of the story is run-of-the-mill where the families go through the twists and turns that are scripted into the story before the movie ends with the bandit’s grandson being awarded a bravery medal as he (a cop) was instrumental in capturing dacoits.

The titles of the movie says that Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Mehmood, Johnny jr. and Shahid Bijnori are the playback singers used for songs written by Visweswar Sharma, Vithalbhai Patel and Shahid Bijnori. Kalyanji Anandji were the music directors assisted by Anil Mohile, Frank and Babla.

27th April is the fourth remembrance day of the very handsome, smart, good looking (his fans can choose the adjective they like) Vinod Khanna. He was a moderately good dancer, emoted well, had a good physique; may not have been like the 6-pack sporting modern youngsters but still well built. He also produced a few movies :- the 1974 release “Farebi” (various sites are calling this movie ‘The Cheat’) was produced by Pramod Khanna so we can say it was Vinld Khanna’s own production and “Himalay Putra” to launch his son Akshaye Khanna in 1997. I don’t know if today’s movie “Hatyara” was his production but the movie opens by paying homage to Smt. Kamladevi Khanna and we know that Vinod Khanna’s mother’s name was Kamla. He began his career playing a small role in Manoj Kumar’s ‘Purab Aur Paschim’; Shammi Kapoor starrer ‘Jaane Anjaane’; villain in Rajesh Khanna’s ‘Aan Milo Sajna’; there were many such movies. He was appreciated in ‘Mere Apne’, ‘Achanak’, ‘Inkaar’, etc. He made a good pair with Amitabh in ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Parvarish’, ‘Khoon Pasina’, ‘Her Pheri’, etc. We saw him share screen space with Dharmendra in “Mera Gaon Mera Desh’, ‘The Burning Train’, ‘Rajput’, and many others. Similarly he was there with Shatrughan Sinha, Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, etc and all the actresses of the 70s and 80s have acted with him- that list is long too.

Today’s song shows him dancing with Moushumi Chatterjee at his and his sister Priyadarshini’s engagement. We have the elders of the village as audience. Towards the end of the song Nirupa Roy makes her entrance and I suppose that is where the story of the movie takes a turn. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and written by Vitthalbhai Patel.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Maata’ aka ‘The Mother’ (1942). Not many people know about this film. Made by Kirti films, it was a social film, directed by Dada Gunjal. Music was composed by Vasant Kumar Naidu, for the lyrics by DN Madhok. The cast of the film was Shobhana Samarth, Chandrakant, Mubarak, A. Himalaywala, Urmila Devi, Bhudo Advani, Moti, Bibi Bai, Munshi Khanjar, Suraiya Begum etc.

Chandrakant is a name which appears for a very few films as an actor. In fact, he acted in only 2 films. The other film was ‘Maharathi Karna’ (1944) (he had a small role). Chandrakant Gaur was born in UP in 1929. He was an educated person and knew many languages like Marathi, Gujarati and Punjabi, in addition to Hindi and English. He was a quick learner and a good writer. He came to Bombay to become a director. Instead of that he started as an actor in ‘Maata’.

During the shooting of ‘Maharathi Karna’, Bhalji Pendharkar spotted this young man’s talents and took him to Kolhapur as his assistant. Chandrakant, being a fast learner, became adept at direction. He came back to Bombay and hurriedly directed his first film – ‘Riding Hero’ (1951), a stunt film made by Laxmi Productions of Chimanlal Trivedi. After this, he directed 29 Hindi films, mostly B grade, stunt/action films only.

He also directed a Hit Punjabi film ‘Bhagat Dhanna Jaat’ (1974). According to indiancine.ma, this film is said to have revived Punjabi film industry. He did some Gujarati mythologicals and Marathi films too. Together his tally goes to 45 films. In between he became famous for writing stories of films like ‘Patita’ (1953), ‘Seema’ (1955), ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ (1957), ‘Kathputali’ (1957), ‘Anita’ (1967) and ‘Mahasati Savitri’ (1973).

From the cast listing, another interesting name is that of A Himalaywala. His name was Mohd Afzaluddin. He was born in March 1916, at Dehradun. After school education he joined his brother, Mohd Misaluddin’s firm – The Himalaya Drug Company, a leading Pharma company of repute (even today). He worked there for 10 years and after a dispute with his brother, left the company. He came to Bombay to join films.

First he had thought of starting a company, but looking at the situation, he decided to do acting only. His first film was ‘Kiski Biwi’ (1942), directed by MA Mirza. His name was changed from Afzal to A Himalaywala (since he came from the Himalayan town of Dehradun, like Kashmiri from Kashmir), by Shaukat Hussain, husband of Noorjehan. However in many films he was credited as Afzal only. He worked in few films like, ‘Vishwaas’ (1943), ‘Ankh Ki Sharm’ (1943), ‘Dost’ (1944), ‘Kismatwaala’ (1944), ‘Zeenat’ (1945), ‘Humayun’ (1945), ‘Nal Damayanti’ (1945), ‘Jagbeeti’ (1946), ‘Samrat Ashok’ (1947) and ‘Elaan’ (1947).

He was an outspoken and straightforward person, fond of hunting, football and travelling by car. He toured all of India twice in his car. In 1943, he married actress singer Amirbai Karnataki. After marriage he banned her from acting in films. Within 2-3 years, on this and other issues, they could not get along. He used to hit her and take all her money. At last, it was rumoured that he gave her talaaq after taking 2 lakh rupees and her car. Even after this he was stalking her. She stayed with her elder sister Ahilya Bai. Then one day, she was kidnapped by Himalaywala, from the recording room. She was kept locked in a room and beaten daily. She somehow managed to inform this to her sister.

Ahilyabai then got in touch with her acquaintance Mr Rasiklal Vyas and his brother Chhailabhai Vyas – one of the best criminal lawyers of Bombay. With their political and social connections, they forced the police to register an FIR, which was refused due to Himalaywala’s bribe. Meanwhile Himalaywala was alerted by his cronies. Within few hours Amirbai was escorted back to her sister’s place, by Himalaywala. All this episode is described in full details in the book ‘Aap Ki Parchhaiyaan’, by Rajnikumar Pandya ji. Amirbai later married Gujarati Journalist Badri Kaanchwala.

After partition, Himalaywala migrated to Pakistan. There the lady luck smiled on him and he did very well. He became successful as an actor and was famous also. His role of Akbar in film ‘Anarkali’ (1957) was particularly appreciated very much. Mohd Afzuluddin Himalaywala died in 1984 in Lahore.

The director of this film was V.M. aka Dada Gunjal, who started his career by directing his first film, ‘Bhakt Ke Bhagwan’ (1934). He went on to direct 38 films in Hindi and Marathi. His last film was ‘Ek Armaan Mera’ (1959). Dada Gunjal was born in Bombay on 25-1-1904 and died also at Bombay on 6-11-1968.

The music director for this film was a less known composer, Vasant Kumar Naidu. He was  born in 1915. His family had settled in Burma like thousands of other South Indian families.  When Burma was struggling for independence, in the 1930s, most Indians left Burma and came to India. Many went to Calcutta and many went to South India. Many families walked for around 6 months from Burma to India.  Vasant Kumar’s family was one among them.  They walked from Rangoon to Madras.  The family settled in Madras for some years.

Vasant Kumar Naidu had come alone to Bombay earlier in search of a career in music. He was an instrumentalist and could play any string instruments and also harmonium. He was also very much interested in reading different languages. There were many books that he read. He was also very keen in dressing up and had several suits in those days. He joined the film industry and started getting established as a music director.  He then called his mother and other siblings to live with him in Bombay along with his eldest brother’s widow and her son. He had 4 brothers. His eldest brother expired in Madras itself. Vasant Kumar was the second eldest. He had two younger brothers as well.  They all lived on Peddar Road. He left his Peddar Road flat and moved to Parel. He lived in Parel until his death on 16-10-1951.

Vasant Kumar got married in Madras. This marriage was a proposed marriage arranged by his mother. Eventually his other brothers also got married. All three brothers and their wives stayed under the same roof in Parel in a joint family which was headed and supported monetarily by Vasant Kumar.  His younger brother Pandurang Naidu was also picking up in music career. He became a musician (he played banjo and mandolin). Vasant Kumar taught several string instruments to him. His youngest brother, Sreenivasan Naidu, in the later part of his life became music composer for Indian Railway Music Academy (Central Railway Cultural Academy).

Vasant Kumar is survived by his only daughter, Pramila Naidu, who is a widow now. She lives in Pune with her grown up children. Pramila Naidu was around 5 years old when her father expired.  She has a vague memory of her father. It’s sad to see her struggling now financially. She still gives tuition at the age of 70 to make her living. She lawfully owns all these 3 flats in Parel, Mumbai but the 3rd generation of the family has occupied these flats and are not willing to vacate the property. This property is now worth in crores. The cousins of Pramila Naidu got together and filed a law suit against these 3rd generation greedy family members. The law suit is going on now for the past 3 years.

Vasant Kumar started his career in 1939 by giving music to film ‘Thunder’ (1939) and ‘Pakke Badmash’ (1939). Till 1947, he gave music to 22 films, as per the HFGK entries. He composed 160 songs in these 22 films. He is variously mentioned as Vasant, Vasant Kumar and VK Naidu, in addition to his name Vasant Kumar Naidu. He sang 1 song, a duet with Khan Mastana for film ‘Mere Sajan’ (1941).

His filmography is,

  • Thunder (1939)
  • Pukke Badmash (1939)
  • Rangeela Jawan (1940)
  • Jung-e-Azadi (1940)
  • Desh Bhakta (1940)
  • Suhana Geet (1941)
  • Meri Khwaish (1941)
  • Mere Saajan (1941)
  • Lehri Jawan (1941)
  • Lalaji (1942),
  • Call of youth (1942)
  • Mata (1942)
  • Watan ki Pukar (1943)
  • Nai zindgi (1943)
  • Mohabbat ki jeet (1943)
  • Daawat (1943)
  • Circus Girl (1943)
  • Bhagta Bhoot (1943)
  • Beda Paar (1944)
  • Shahi Khazana (1946)
  • Chamkati Bijli (1946)
  • Toote Di (1947)

Unfortunately, Vasant Kumar got mostly B and C stunt and action films for composing the music. Big banners like National Studios gave him an opportunity with film ‘Lalaji’ (1942), in which Naidu got many songs sung by Anil Biswas, Kusum Mantri, and Vatsala Kumthekar. However such films came to him only as an exception, therefore his exposure to audience was limited and his name did not gain any fame. Actually, many big, well known and popular singers sang for Naidu.

However, without a mentor, Godfather or the support of a big banner, it became impossible for Vasant Kumar to grow further. During the transition period of 1947-48, when many composers migrated to Pakistan, the existing big composers made their positions solid. Thus smaller composers never got any opportunity to benefit from the void created by the exit of composers. This was the case of many small time composers like Vasant Kumar.

The film ‘Maata’ has 7 songs. I have heard 6 of them and feel, he could have done better than this. The selected song is a better one from the lot. The singer’s name is not available.The film makes its debut on the blog.

बरसन लागे
बिरहन दे दुहाई
आ तू किसी बहाने
आ तू किसी बहाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने
मन का मोर मेरा
मन का मोर मेरा
किसे बखाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने
मन का मोर मेरा
मन का मोर मेरा
किसे बखाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने

सब के साजन
अब घर आए
बाकी एक निगोड़ी
उन का भला कभी ना होवे
प्रीत लगा जिन तोड़ी
जिया लाग ला
जिया लाग ला
किसी ठिकाने
जिया लाग ला
किसी ठिकाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने
मन का मोर मेरा
मन का मोर मेरा
किसे बखाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने
मन का मोर मेरा
मन का मोर मेरा
किसे बखाने
तुम बिन और कौन जाने
