Today’s song is from film Shri Ganesh Mahima aka Shri Krishna Vivah-1950.

Mythological films have been my weakness from the beginning. When I was around 10-12 years of age, I would be a very happy, willing and enthusiastic escort to family elders-especially ladies, going for a Bhakti Pradhan film. What I liked in these films was the trick scenes and fantastic costumes. later on I realised these films also provided lot of religious knowledge in the formative years.

Most mythological films were based on stories from Ramayan and Mahabharat. But many films were also using stories from various Puranas like Shiv Puran, Vishnu Puran etc. There was no dearth of such stories, what with 18 Puranas and 2 Epic books. Stories of Puranas etc have some hidden meanings, which one has to look for. Few years ago,in one of my posts, I had explained how the Dashavatars of Lord Vishnu were actually the story of evaluation of Life on Earth. The first avtar of Matsya( the fish) explains us how life on earth began in water.The second avtar of Koorma (the Tortoise) told us the development of Amphibians who started living on land and water. So on and so forth

In Tretayug, Shri Ram came and in Dwapar Yug, Shri Krishna was incarnated by Lord Vishnu. Shri Ram gave a lesson on how to be an ideal son, husband, friend and a King, but Krishna taught us how to be a street smart person and win over enemies skillfully. I feel in today’s times, Krishna is more relevant than Ram. Krishna also taught us how to be a happy person and enjoy everything.

Like religious stories , there is no shortage of Gods also, in our Religion. This is actually one of the plus points of Hinduism. Each community can and will have its own version of God. Many Gods, but basics are never compromised. Everyone knows there is only ONE GOD, having a different version to suit the worshipper. Examples are, Fishermen have God in the matters related to Sea and Tribals in forests worship Gods made of Wood. We all know that these are all symbols and God lives in our Hearts.

One can find stories of most popular Gods like Ram,Krishna, Ganesh, Hanuman, Shiv ji, Vishnu etc, but somehow the film world has ignored Bramha, Saraswati, Shani deo, Surya dev, Kartikeya etc. These are the Gods for whom even temples are few. Kartikeya (elder son of Shankar-Parvati) is worshipped in south as Kumara swami. These Gods do appear in some films for few minutes, but exclusive films on them are missing. Now that Mythology is present only on TV, such films have become rare these days.

Our Indian film makers will never fall short of subjects for their films. They can combine any stories and make a Hybrid film- like for example, Sindbad,Alibaba and Alladin-1965. They can give families and children to famous characters like Zimbo ka Beta, Alladin ki Beti etc. The worst molestation has been done to the famous character of Tarzan. He is combined with, Capt. Kishore, Delialah, King kong, Circus, Cobra, Gorilla, Hercules, Jadugar, jadui Chirag, Jalpari and a Fairy. Tarzan is provided with a Mehbooba, Beta and Beti. Tarzan has been sent to Delhi, Paristan, Fairyland and even in a wonder car. I feel pity for Edgar Rice Burrows who must tired of turning in his grave !!!

Film Shri Ganesh Mahima aka Shrikrishna Vivah-50 is also a combination of stories from Ganesh Puran and Bhagwat Puran. In Ganesh Puran, there is a story that once The Moon laughed at Ganesh. Ganesh was angry and he gave a curse to the Moon. Moon came on his knees and then the curse was modified that whosoever sees the Moon on only Ganesh Chaturthi night, will be falsely accused of theft. In our childhood there was a rumour that to ward off the false accusation of theft, if you throw stones on somebody’s house and he abuses you, then the curse disappears. Some naughty boys used to do this and get abuses profusely !

In Bhagwat Puran, the story of Shrikrishna’s marriage to Satyabhama is described. In this film,both these stories are interwoven skilfully. The story of this film, as noted by me in my diary, is thus……

Great and Miraculous powers are attributed to Shri Ganesh the benefactor of mortals as well as the immortals. Such a benign being was once laughed at by Chandra only to be cursed by him. Realising his folly, Chandra begged for forgiveness and the curse was modified by the merciful divinity to be effective only on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. He ordained that anybody looking at the moon on that night will be a victim of false accusations.

It was on such a day that Shri Krishna unwittingly looked at the moon in the night and had to suffer the indignity of being falsely accused of theft of Syamantak Mani. This jewel was acquired by Satrajit, one of the Yadavas as a boon from God Sun. Shri Krishna had sent Narad to Satrajit expressing his desire to possess the Mani. The events took such a turn that there was circumstantial evidence against Shri Krishna who happened to be at the Chambers of Satrajit’s daughter Satyabhama, devotee of Lord Krishna on the night prior to Satrajits losing the Mani. Shri Krishna was shocked at such allegation made by Satrajit and Shatadhanva ( Another Yadava) who had been promised by Satrajit the hand of his daughter Satyabhama.

Shri Krishna took upon himself to find out the jewel and redeem it to its rightful owner only to clear himself of the allegation. A search party was organised which came across the dead body of Prasain, a carcass of lion and also the foot-prints of a bear blazing a new trail which when followed led the party to a cave. Shri Krishna went inside the cave telling the followers to wait at the cave entrance for seven days and if he did no return by then, to go back to Dwarka. Inside the cave Shri Krishna found the Syamantak Mani and also Jambuwanti, the daughter of the powerful bear king Jambuwant. There ensued a fight between Shri Krishna and Jambuwant lasting for twenty one days. The people at the entrance of the cave returned as per instruction after the seventh day. The duration of this fight gave Shatadhanva a real chance for villainy. He puts in an all over effort to win the hand of Satyabhama who would marry none but Shri Krishna. Jambuwant after losing the battle gave away his daughter in marriage and Syamantak Mani as dowry to Shri Krishna.

Coming to Dwarka, Shri Krishna returned the jewel to its rightful owner, Satrajit repented and made amends by giving away his daughter to Shri Krishna in marriage. Shatadhanva came to know of this alliance and made short work of the unsuspecting Satrajit and decamped with the Mani. Shri Krishna brought justice to the evil doer and the villain Shatadhanva fell a victim to his famous Sudershana Chakra.

The cast of the film was Mahipal, Meena Kumari, S N Tripathi, Moolchand, Dalapat, Amarnath etc. The film was made by Basant Pictures and directed by its owner, Homi Wadia. Music was by S N Tripathi. In the arena of Mythological, Historical and Religious films, from the 40s to the 60s, the names of Mahipal, Trilok kapoor, Manhar Desai, Prem Adib and Shahu Modak were taken frequently. Similarly,Jeevan as Narad was also popular. All the Heros were handsome and they had a sort of special glow on their faces. Each of them had a special style of portraying roles. Prem Adib was famous for his roles of Ram, Shahu Modak excelled as Shrikrishna with his mischievous smile. Trilok Kapoor means Bhagwan Shankar. Manhar Desai and Mahipal did a variety of roles of different Gods. While Manhar Desai was more active on Gujarati screen, Mahipal worked mainly in Hindi films. His repertoire of roles included films of Mythology, History, Costume and Folk Tales.

Mahipalchand Mahadevchand Bhandari was born in Jodhpur, Rajsthan on 24-11-1919. By 1941 he got his B.A. degree and he also started participating in Kavi Sammelans,with his poetry. His break in films came with Nazrana-42. The film was a flop, but he was employed for writing lyrics.

He acted in Ranjit’s Shankar Parvati-43, Andhon ki duniya-43, Rajkamal’s Maali-44, Narsinh Avatar-44, Banwasi-48, Daulat-49, and Bhishma pratidnya-50. Meantime,he wrote songs for films Aap ki sewa mein-47 and Adalat-48. He did few more films with Homi Wadia and then he started his fantasy films with Wadia. For this, he was trained in Fencing and Horse riding. He worked with Shakeela in 18 films-mostly costume films of C grade. He worked with Meenakumari (4 films), Nirupa Roy (4), Shyama (6), Anita Guha (11) etc

In the 50’s decade,which was the peak for Mythological films with 124 films, his 70 films were released.In the 60s,he did 33 films-including Navrang and finally he did 19 films from 71 to 83. He did total 143 films. Mahipal spent his retired life with family and friends. He died on 15-5-2005. ( Bio adapted from ‘Inhe na bhulana’ Gujarati book by Harish Raghuwanshi ji, with thanks)

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Roy. At this time, she was still new and trying to get hold in film industry. You will love the song and her fresh voice.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ख’ – खुश कर दिया तूने मेरे रामा

गीत गाता हूँ मैं ॰ ॰ ॰

Yes, surely the Almighty God sent you here amongst us, only for singing and to add to the music on this earth. And what a wonderful treasure you have bequeathed to the lesser mortals of this earth. We shall always be indebted for this tremendous legacy you gave us.

Continuing with Rafi Sb’s duet series after a gap of – goodness, seventy two days. Wow. Anyway, back again with another rollicking duet, this time accompanied by Lata Mangeshkar.

And rollicking is just the word. The setting is Punjabi, the performance is a Punjabi Bhangra dance, and the occasion – one of the most awaited and the most celebrated in Indian families – birth of a male child.

The film is ‘Jeet’ from 1972. The main performers in this group dance song are Randhir Kapoor and Babita. The film being released in 1972, would have been in the making in 1971, the year that this lead pair tied the knot and became a real life couple. Ah but that story for another occasion, another post. Today, we are moving ahead with the duet series of Rafi Sb, getting to the 10th episode in this series, which promises to be long – going thru the entire Devnagri alphabet.

The film is produced under the banner of Babu Movies Combine, and is directed by A Subbarao. Besides the lead pair mentioned above, the other players in the star cast include Rajendra Nath, Rupesh Kumar, Jatin, Nana Palsikar, Anwar Hussain, Jeevan, Sundar, Hari Shivdasani, Dada Mirasi, Keshav Rana, Master Shahid, Heena Kausar, Sanjana, Sulochana Latakar, Manorama, Dulari, and Baby Sudha etc.

The film has six songs, three of which are already showcased on our blog. Goodness, that was 2009, all three songs posted so far. After a gap of nine years, we once again get an opportunity to revisit this film – today’s being the fourth song posted. All songs are written by Anand Bakshi. Music direction is by the duo of Laxmikant Pyaarelal.

On screen, we see a homely set of a village lane with houses lined up close to each other. Randhir and Babita are leading the bhangra dance event, with Sunder also part of the male dance group. In between, we see Dulari holding a baby (well, not looking too much new born, but oh well 🙂 ). There is another lady sitting next to her. I am guessing that she is Sanjana. I request other more knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct this guess. As per Prakash ji, the other lady is Heena Kausar. Plus, one of the dancers accompanying Babita is Sheela Ramchandran.

The event and the celebration is about the new born child, but quite apparently, the lead pair is spending more lines trying to woo each other and play the romantic love birds. Well in fact, it is just the mukhda lines that talk about the child birth celebrations. The entire verse set for both antaraas is just the romancing between the hero and the heroine. Quite a ‘filmi’ thing, right?

Enjoy this lively bhangra dance song; and I hope to speed up things on this series, let us see. 😉
