Today’s song is from the film Simba-1951.

The film was made by Comedy Pictures. The director was Mohammed Hussain and the music was by D C Dutt. The cast of the film was Baburao, Krishnakumari, Shaikh, Bimla, Indira, habib and others. I have not seen this film but from the photos and the posters of this film it appears to be a kind of a distorted take on a Tarzan-like story.

Hindi films have been making attempts to bring films on this ever popular story worldwide, since the first decade of the Talkie films. Films were made like Zambo-The Ape man-1937 and Zambo ka Beta-1939. Tarzan has been masqueraded in Hindi as Zambo, Zimbo, Zingaro, Simba etc and also films were made using Tarzan name directly. As many as 21 films were made with the name Tarzan. True to Indian generosity and tradition, Tarzan has been gifted with a son, a daughter, a Mehbooba and a Jalpari ! He is combined with Gorilla, King Kong, Delialah, Hercules, Magic lamp and what not. I am sure the original Tarzan would have jumped with pleasure with so many companions ! Such films came mostly in the 60’s decade and the usual heroes were Azaad and Dara Singh, in the main role. Heroines were immaterial.

These C grade action and stunt films are truly 100 % entertainment. Only condition was that you must lock up your brain and forget any body part above your shoulders, before seeing these films. The greatest misuse of ” Cinematic Liberty” was to be found in those films. But honestly, the current New generation has really missed out on something out of this world !

Entertainment at best was provided by these C grade stunt and action films of the 40’s, 50’s and the 60’s. I know, because my childhood was nurtured on the full dose of such films. I was seeing films from the age of 9-10 years or so. That was around 1949-50. I was the officially appointed chaperone or the chies guide and guard of the older generation group when they went to see Mythological films in a theatre. Other times, I used to see action films and musical or social films etc. Old films of the 40’s were shown at reduced rates of 4 annas, 6 annas etc. in theatres screening them as ” Morning Shows” from 10 to 1 pm. I had no qualms seeing any film -be it Marathi, Hindi English, Telugu, Kannada or even Bangla. I was lucky to see films of the 40’s, because later on they simply disappeared !

Some people feel seeing and enjoying C grade films is below dignity and childish. It was neither, in my opinion. Sense and cause of enjoyment is as different to individuals as are the natures of all the people. You can’t find similarity exactly. It is like the definition of Beauty. Shakespeare had said ” Beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes “. To each his own. There are millions of people worldwide who like such films and that is why such films were made. Without demand would such films be made ?

Nowadays ofcourse, such films- C grade stunt and action films are not made. Due to advanced techniques and SFX science, one can show any unimaginable trick or scene in seconds, so who needs Fight masters and DareDevil action heroes like master Bhagwan, Baburao pehelwan, Kamran, Ranjan, Fearless Nadia and their ilk ? Furthermore, action on the screen is now diversified and branched into several stereotypes.

An American – Mr. Michel aka Mike Barnum runs 2 Blogs on the Internet, namely Pedro the Ape and cinemajadoo. Most people are totally unaware of such Blogs run by an American-Mike Barnum ji. On his Blog Mike has written on at least 100+ only C grade action and stunt films alone. He has made classification by different Generes also, like Jungle films, Mystery films, Murder films, Horror films etc etc. There are Photos, posters, cast details, film stories and short Bios of unknown C grade artistes. Once you go to his Blog, you get lost for a long time. It is a great work, involving a neglected Genre of Hindi films, which was once upon a time, a very popular film variety for certain audiences. I thank him profusely for this service. Thanks, Mike Barnum ji.

The decade of the 40s and the 50s was the period when stunt and Action films were made in plenty. There were specialised actors,producers, directors,composers and even specialised audiences too for such films. Stunt and Action films was a very sweeping name for a Genre which included several types of sub-categories. When I started studying these films, I found this kind soul – Mike Burnum -who identified and classified stunt/Action films made in India, into sub categories. For the information of our esteemed readers, the different types within the generalised Stunt/Action films are…(in descending order of number of films made….)

1. Fantasy and Arabian Nights-92 films
2. Horror – 67
3. Jungle Thrillers (Tarzan/Zimbo/Zambo/Zangbo/Zingara etc)
4. New Century Horror films ( Horror films made after 2000)
5. Science Fiction
6. Chillers
7. Spies and Detective
8. Super heroes/ Heroines
9. Murder and Mystery
10. Sword Fighting and
11. Naag Films. etc etc.

In today’s film cast you will find the name Baburao. Now this is not a complete name. There were several Baburaos in the film industry like Baburao Painter, Baburao Patel, Baburao Apte, Baburao Pendharkar, Baburao Pehelwan etc. But a regular fan of action films knew that in such films Baburao means Baburao Pehelwan.

Baburao Pehelwan, hailed from Kolhapur – famous for wrestlers due to royal patronage from King Shahu Maharaj. He started his career with the Wadias as an extra doing small roles and as a duplicate for Fearless Nadia. Master Bhagwan picked him up from there and made him a hero in his stunt pictures like, ‘Badla’ (1943), ‘Madadgaar’ (1947), ‘Laalach’ (1948), ‘Jalan’ (1948), ‘Bhedi Bungla’ (1949) etc. After the eclipse of stunt and action films, by the 60s, he joined fight master Azeem Khan’s team as a fighter and a duplicate. In the film ‘Howrah Bridge’ (1958) he was Ashok Kumar’s duplicate in the final scene, where he is to climb the Howrah Bridge.

Baburao Pehelwan operated in an era when there was a spate of actors calling themselves “pehelwan”. They were in great demand in stunt and action films. At one time there were actors like Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Sadiq Pehelwan, Nandram Pehelwan, Maane Pehelwan, Amir Khan Pehelwan. There was one more actor in the 30s named Marutirao Pehelwan. He was a handsome person. He was the hero in the first Gujarati talkie film, ‘Narsi Mehta’ (1932). He married his co-star of many films Tara, elder sister of dancer Sitara Devi. After retirement, Marutirao Pehelwan settled in Dhule in Maharashtra and opened a dairy. World famous dancer Gopi Krishna was their son.

Today’s song seems to be a dance number. It is sung by harish, Shaikh and chorus.. Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films,as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 8 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Simba-51, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade film comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt, fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main on screen singer in the iconic qawali, “Humen to loot liya milke husn walon ne” from the film Al Hilal-58. (It was the 5000th song on this Blog)

He directed 2 films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji Palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # BUNDLE BAAZ – 1976#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the ‘1976’ movie ‘Bundlebaaz’.

This movie had made its debut on the blog on 18.09.2012 with a lovely song ‘naghmaa hamaara gaayegaa ye zamaana’.
After the above song the second song from this movie was posted on 18.07.2017 which is yet another lovely song ‘bemausam bahaar ke din kaise aaye’.

‘Bundlebaaz’ had four songs only and when I shared its first song in 2012 I had also shared one more song around the same time in 2012-2013. This is the song we are going to listen and enjoy today.

“Bundlebaaz” or ‘Bandalbaaz-1976’ was directed by Shammi Kapoor for ‘Pushpa Pictures, Bombay’.
It was produced by H.A. Nadiadwala.

It had Shammi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Sulakshana Pandit, Johny Walker, Asrani, Ranjit, Farida Jalal, Dev Kumar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Kamal Kapoor, Mukri, Lalita Pawar, Mushtaq, Tuntun, Abhimanyu Sharma, Hangama, Moolchand, Viju Khote, Jerry, Bihari, V. Gopal, Haroon and others.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by K.K. Shukla and dialogues were written by Kader Khan.
Editing of this movie was done by Pran Mehra.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.12.1976.

As mentioned above this movie had four songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by R.D. Burman.

Here is the list of songs this movie had and the singers for the respective songs.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ruk ruk ruk meri jaan, kidhar jaata hai naa jaa Kishore Kumar
02 Ho … kya huaa yaaron gareebi ke ham paale hain Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Naghmaa hamaara gaayegaa ye zamaana Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi 18.09.2012
04 Bemausam bahaar ke din kaise aaye Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar 18.07.2017

So far two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be discussed on the blog.

Earlier when I noted the lyrics for the today’s song and watched it I was guessing about the song situation, because the words ‘baatliwaala’, ‘dibbewaala’ in the lyrics made me think that this must be a song by a ‘scrapwala’  (and yes it is!) 

During the preparation of this post I came across the story of this movie on ‘memsaabstory.com’. Let us have a look on the interesting story line of this movie till the today’s song…

“Our story opens at college, where an impoverished student named Raja (Rajesh Khanna) dreams of making it big and winning his true love Nisha (Neetu Singh look-a-like Sulakshana Pandit).
His rival for her affections, Ranjit (Ranjeet) is the class bully and a cheat; but Ranjit’s father and Nisha’s father are close friends and want their children to get married when they graduate. Raja’s roommate and best friend Gopal (Asrani)—also poor—knows the truth of his circumstances, but Raja has fooled everyone else into believing he has a rich father (as most of them do). After he graduates he returns to his village, where he discovers that his sister Malti (Farida Jalal) and his aunt (Lalita Pawar) are being harassed by the local moneylender to repay the money lent to them for Raja’s education, or he will force Malti to marry him. Raja is overwhelmed at their sacrifices.

He returns to Bombay to find work so he can send money home, and is befriended by Sulaiman (Johnny Walker), who buys bottles and boxes for recycling, and teaches Raja the trade. Raja begins earning money and sends some home to his village. He also meets Gopal again, but doesn’t contact Nisha since he is too poor to court her. When he does run into her (as of course he must), she is going into a New Year’s Eve masquerade party, and thinks that his bottle vendor outfit is his costume. She drags him in with her, where he is tormented again by Ranjit, and further realizes the gulf between himself and Nisha (he entertains with a lovely song, “Kya Hua Yaaron”).”

(Interested readers can enjoy the story of this movie on ‘memsaabstory.com’)

Coming back to today’s it is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and it is lip-synced by Rajesh Khanna and Sulakshana Pandit respectively.

We can see Ranjeet, Pinchoo Kapoor, Mukri and many others during the picturisation of this song.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful musical composition by Pancham Da …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Raakhi Aur Hathkadi-1972#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Raakhi Aur Hathkadi-1972’. I had come across this movie during the preparation of my recent posts with the songs from the year ‘1972’.

“Raakhi Aur Hathkadi-1972” had made its debut on the blog on 28.12.2012. And the song posted then was ‘achchhi nahin sanam dillagi dil e beqaraar se’. I think this was the only well-known song from this movie. Because going through the list of the pending songs from this movie I do not find any familiar song or a song which I had heard earlier before. I was also surprised that only one song from this movie was posted so far on the blog and that too almost more than nine years back.
And this was all when the music of this movie was composed by the ‘genius’ Pancham Da.

In ‘1972’ there were eighteen movies for which the music was composed by R.D. Burman.

Here is the list.

From the above table we can see that Pancham Da created some of the greatest songs and music of HFM during that year.

“Raakhi Aur Hathkadi” was directed by S.M. Sagar for ‘Kala Enterprises, Bombay’.

It was produced by S. Noor and presented by Ashok Kumar.

It had Ashok Kumar, Asha Parekh, Vijay Arora, Anoop Kumar, Sulochana, Raj Mehra, Indira Bansal, Sudhir, Mumtaz Begum, Danny, Geeta Kaushal, Kundan, Reshma A., Shivraj, Baby Kalpana, Keshav Rana, Brahmchari, Shyamu, C.S. Dubey, Prakash Mishra, Radheyshyam, Hardeep Singh, Aziz Siddiqui and others.

Kabir Bedi, Nazima and Helen make a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B.C. Mahor and its screenplay was written by Aziz Qaisi.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Ramesh Pant.

Editing of this movie was done by Wamanrao. (I guess he is Wamanrao Bhonsle).

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.11.1972.

‘Raakhi Aur Hathkadi’ had as many as seven songs – all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Here is the list of the songs in the movie.

Music for this movie was composed by R.D. Burman.

As mentioned above only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog so far.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Asha Parekh performs on screen in the song. Vijay Arora, Kabir Bedi, Danny and othersare also visible in the picturisation of this song.

I have not watched this movie so I cannot say in what context this song is appearing in the movie. I am also not aware how this movie fared at the box-office.
I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

However listening to this song is a pleasure where several instruments have been used by Pancham Da (I do not have much knowledge about, but I liked the music). This song is a treat for music lovers.

I liked this song very much and hope readers will also enjoy the song.

Let us now listen to today’s song.

Blog Day :

5004 Post No. : 16904

Today’s song is from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Suhaana Safar’.

Many of my articles are prompted when my memory gets triggered while listeneing to (or thinking about) songs of movies that I watched long ago.

Today’s post is one such post.

I was travelling to pick up my elder daughter from her new working place which is around 150 kms from Vadodara ( a journey of around two hours and forty-five minutes long). I was travelling to bring her back home for ‘holi’ vacation and her marriage vacation 🙂 (her marriage is scheduled this week). 🙂

I was travelling in the afternoon. When I switched on to ‘vividh bharati’ on 93.9FM’ I got to listen to this program ‘kuchh baatein kuchh geet’. It is a ‘theme’ based program where the audience also share their thoughts related to the theme and request for songs of their choice according to the theme.

During this program I got to listen to this song ‘aha aha aa ye suhaana safar’ (as the theme for that day of 17th March 2022 was ‘suhaana’ or ‘suhawnaapan’ etc.

I liked this song very much. It brought back memories of watching this movie when I must be around seven-eight years old. This movie was screened at the weekly screening of movies at the colony club where we then resided.

Though I do not remember this movie now, but this song is permanently embedded on my mind. I had shared this song as a ‘lyrics contributor’ on the blog.

I must be between two-three years old when this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ had released. Recently I came across many movies of ‘end-sixties’ or from the years – 1968 to 1971 where songs from some of the movies are part of my nostalgia of those years.

I am sure some songs may be getting embedded on my impressionable mind then where the elders must have carried me to movies they watched or some songs were played frequently on the radio, when I was growing, and thus they become part of my vague memories.

I had earlier attempted to list down the songs which makes me feel nostalgic and those songs which bring back old memories, in this post.

I am thinking to revisit movies in chronological order -from the year of my birth i.e. 1968 to 1983-85 when I become a grown up boy and had completed my 10+2 education. I am sure this will be an interesting ‘journey’. But that is a part of another ‘series’ 🙂 of posts.

Coming back to the today’s post now …

When I reached back to my ‘base station’’ I browsed the blog and noted that this movie ‘Suhaana Safar’ is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. On checking the remaining two songs I find the song under discussion more suitable for today’s presentation as the song is happening on a ‘marriage function’ in the movie.

“Suhaana Safar -1970” was directed by Vijay for ‘Century Films, Bombay’.

It had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, David, Manmohan Krishna, Leela Mishra, Bhagwan, K.N. Singh, Tiwari, Sunder, Randhir, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Sherry, and others.

This movie had six songs written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Five songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog as given below.

06 Aha aha ye suhaana safar Suman Kalyanpur 18.03.2018

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This vigorous dance song is lip synced by Jayshree T. She has given an energetic and enthusiastic performance in this song which is highly enjoyable to watch.

Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Shashi Kapoor and many other male-female artists.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and say ‘Yippeeee’ to this movie ‘Suhaana Safar-1970’ on the blog.

(When I had already noted the lyrics of this song and noting the date of the earlier posts, I noted that this movie was eligible for ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 08.03.2022. And as usual lyrics of the remaining two songs from this movie were also sent by our dear Prakash ji for that day.)

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 32
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 March 2012) saw four songs from four different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5656 Mit nahin sakta kabhi likha huaa taqdeer ka Sansaar (1951) 6 songs covered so far out of 14
5657 Nasheeli hawaa hai samaa hai suhaana Commercial Pilot Officer(1963) 3 songs covered so far out of 6
5658 Wo zindagi to thhi ab tak teri panaahon mein Neelkamal(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now
5659 Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao Daastaan e Laila Majnu(1974) One song covered so far out of 11

One movie out of four, whose songs were covered on 19 march 2012 has since been YIPPEED. The other three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) is one of the eligible movies.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) was produced and directed by R L Desai for Chandra Art, Bombay. The movie had Anaamika, Kanwaljit,Dheeraj Kumar(special appearance), Jayshree.T., Satyajeet, K.N.singh, B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Dulari, Mohan Sherry etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. One song has been covered so far and that was ten years ago.

So after a gap of exactly ten years, here is the second song from “Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Iqbal Qureshi is the music director.

The song is picturised on Jayshree T, with Anamika and Dhiraj Kumar also visible as royals. Laila Majnu tale is a medieval tale, that is why Jayshree T dance should not be called a cabarat dance, but that dance and also the music sounds and looks every inch a cabarat dance song to me. 🙂 Hindi movies are in any case not known for attentions to details and accuracy of facts.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the film Do Behnen-1959.

The film was made by Brij kala Mandir, Bombay. Produced by J P Sehgal and Kailash Kapoor, it was directed by Kedar Kapoor. Music was composed by Vasant Desai and all the 7 songs were written by Kavi Pradeep. The cast of the film was Shyama, Rajendra Kumar, Chand Usmani, Radha Kishen, Tiwari, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra and many more.

The director Kedar Kapoor (2.9.1927-5.6.1987) directed 35 films from 1954 to 1983. In his career he was branded as Dara Singh Specialist, because he directed as many as 19 films of Dara Singh. His daughter Madhu kapoor was also an actress, in those days. The pair of composer Vasant Desai and Kavi Pradeep was unusual. They came together only in 2 films of 1959, namely south made School master and Do Behnen. Kavi pradeep was not acceptable to many well known Music Directors of those times, because Pradeep insisted on singing at least one song in every film and he used to force the composer to use the tunes he made for his songs. Due to this, MDs who were famous, could afford to deny working with him, like Naushad for example. Even Vasant Desai had to give one song from both his films to Pradeep to sing.

The story of Do behnen-59 was a story of twin sisters who were poles apart in nature. Shyama did a double role for both sisters. Earlier K.A.Abbas’ story in film ” Anhonee’-1952 had handled such a story. But that too was not the first one. In 1942, the film “Muqabala” depicted 2 sisters having different natures. In that film the Stunt Queen Fearless Nadia did the double role of sisters.

Having a double role in films was not a new thing. Let us take a brief look at the history of Double roles in films. As far back as into the initial era of making silent films, a male actor, Anna Salunke, had done the double role of Shri Ram and Seeta in film ” Lanka Dahan”-1917, made by Dadasaheb Phalke. Later on actress Patience Cooper did double roles of Twin sisters in silent film “Patni Pratap”-1923 and then again as Mother and daughter in silent film “Kashmiri Sundari”-1925. Master Vithal did a double role in the film Raj Tarang-1927.

When Talkie films started, the first film to have a double role was “Awara Shehzada”-1933.The Hero was Shahu Modak. The film was based on Mark Twain’s popular novel “The prince and the pauper’ in 1881. With this film India had beaten Hollywood in this race, because the first Talkie film on this novel was made in Hollywood only in 1937, with the same title of novel. The film featured the handsome Erol Flynn. Another popular film was ” The prisoner of Zenda’ based on the novel of same name by Anthony Hope in 1894 in 1937 and 1952.

In Hindi, a major hit film on double roles was Geeta-1940. In this film the hero-Chandramohan did a role of Father and son and the Heroine Durga Khote did the double role of Mother and wife. The film advocated the principle for the first time in films that ” Crime never pays”. This theme was later used in many films like “Kismat”-43 and “Sangram”-50. Film Geeta became so popular that it was remade as “Ustad’-1957 and “Karmayogi”-1978. Ashok kumar and Raaj Kumar did double roles in these films.

In the south made film “Chandralekha’-1948, the Hero Ranjan had a double role as twin brothers. The trend of making films with double roles went on increasing steadily. I have the statistics of such films from 1931 to 2014. As per this, the double role films were 3 in the 40’s, 11 in 50’s, 37 in 60’s, 63 in 70’s, 62 in 80’s, 81 in 90’s, 45 in 2000 and 17 till 2014.

Leading actors did double roles in films thus –

Amitabh-15 films
Rajesh K. – 11 films
Mithun Ch. -11
Govinda -10
Jeetendra -9
6 films each by Akshay kr., Hema M., Rishi K., Sanjeev kr.,and Shri Devi
5 films by Anupam K., Dilip kr., Mehmood and SRKhan
4 films by Ajay D, Anil k., J.Shroff, KK, Rekha, Sadhana, Salman Khan, Shashi K.
3 films by 15 actors. 2 and 1 by many actors. I have all the names but it will be too long a list.

So much for films with double roles.

The story of Do Behnen-59 was written by eminent writer Pt. Mukhram Sharma ( 29-5-1909 to 25-4-2000): The most famous writer of stories with social themes in the fifties, Pandit Mukhram Sharma had a long association with B. R. Chopra. He had written stories for many of his hit films. Some of his notable films are Ek Hi Raasta, Aulad, Sadhna and Dhool Ka Phool. Pt. Sharma had also won Filmfare awards for Sadhna, Vachan and Aulad. His other hit films include Santaan, Do Kalian, Jeene Ki Raah, Raja Aur Rank, Dadi Maa, Gharana and Talaq. Pt. Mukhram Sharma won Sangeet Natak Academy Award (1961).

Before coming to Bombay, he was a teacher in Meerut. In 1939, he came to Bombay, but could not get any job. He moved to Poona and joined Prabhat films as a Tutor for Marathi and Hindi. In Poona, he married a Marathi actress Shanta Mujumdar.He was with Marathi films till 1952, then he came to Bombay and got the first Filmfare award for Best story for his film Aulad-54.

Then there was no looking back. After winning Filmfare awards 3 times, Academy Award and Lifetime achievement Zee award, Sharma retired in 1980 and went back to Meerut.

The story of Do Behnen-59 was……….

Bombay-based look-alike twin sisters, Vasanti and Malti ( Shyama ), live a wealthy lifestyle with their parents. Their father, Raghunath ( S.K.Prem), arranges devout Vasanti’s marriage with Ramesh ( Rajendra Kumar), who lives with his widower father, a doctor ( Tiwari), and a sister, Rekha ( Chand Usmani). After the wedding, Raghunath is shocked to find Malti singing and dancing with a male named Anokhey( Ram Mohan) in a nightclub.

He brings her home, admonishes her severely and forbids her to leave the home. In response, she elopes with Anokhey, travels to Poona and books a room in Paramount Hotel. Shortly thereafter Anokhey shows his true colors, squanders her money, starts drinking, and frequenting prostitutes. He then takes her jewelry and walks out of her life. In order to recover the rent, the Hotel Manager contacts the Mathurs, and Vasanti and her mom ( Mumtaz Begum) attend to take Malti back home.

While traveling home, the train meets with an accident and Vasanti passes away. Her mother tells everyone that it is Malti who has passed away, and compels Malti to take over as Vasanti, which she does reluctantly.

After going to her house, she finds it very difficult to adjust to the sati savitri type behaviour. However, slowly she starts loving the new house and also her husband. Ramesh many times gets puzzled with her behaviour, but ignores it.

Finally the truth is out one day, but by that time Ramesh starts liking her and so a New Malti takes over her dead sister’s place officially.

Today’s song is the 7th and the final song of this film. It makes the film ” YIPPIED ” ! It is a good song too. Enjoy….

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 30
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago was 14 March 2012. That day saw four songs from four different movies getting discussed in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5635 De de khuda ke naam pe pyaare Alam Ara(1973) One song out of 11 covered so far
5636 Nagri meri kabtak yoonhi barbaad rahegi Man Ki Jeet(1944) Movie YIPPEED by now
5637 Kabhi tanhaayiyoon mein ek aisi bhi ghadi aayi Meenar(1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
5637 O jaane waale mudke zara dekhte jaana Shri 420(1955) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that three movies out of four whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with only one movie which is eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today (14 March 2022).

That movie is “Alam Ara”(1973).

Does the name “Alam Ara” and the date 14 march ring any bells ? Indeed it does, it was on 14 march 1931 that “Alam Ara”(1931) became the first Hindi talkie movie to be shown to public. The inaugural show of the movie took place at 5:30 PM in Bombay (now Mumbai) in Majestic Talkies. That was a saturday.

That movie is no longer available but movies with same name and same story were released in 1956 as well as 1971. Like the 1931 movie, even its 1956 and 1971 version are difficult to come by. Ten years ago on this date, a song of “Alam Ara”(1971) was discussed by Sudhir Jee, who managed to locate a song of “Alam Ara”(1973). This song had exactly the same lyrics as the very first song of “Alam Ara”(1931)- namely- “De de khuda ke naam pe pyaare”. Even more remarkably, it is sung by the same singer actor who sang this song in the 1931 movie, namely Wazir Muhammad Khan ! That writeup by Sudhir Jee is worth a relook on this special occasion.

14 march 2012 was exactly 81 years after “Alam Ara”(1931) was released. 14 march 2022 is exactly 91 years after “Alam Ara”(1931) was released. It is quite befitting that we discuss songs of “Alam Ara”(1973) on both thes days.

“Alam Ara”(1973) was produced by Mafatlal Shah and was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Jaishree Films, Bombay. The movie had Nazima, Ajit Sachdev, P Jairaj, Mohan Choti, Uma Dutt, Rajnibala, Mohan Sherry, Munshi Munakka, Bhushan Tewari, etc. Wazir Muhammad Khan played the same role in 1973 movie that he had played in 1931, and 1956 versions of the movie. He was 31, 54 and 71 years old respectively when he played the role of fakeer and sang the same song in his own voice in all the three versions. !

Today’s song is from the film Naya Raasta-1953.

Human nature is basically the same all over the world. There are some emotions and likes, common to all people everywhere in the world. Irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion or Language, certain wishes are common all over the world. One of these likes, emotions or wishes is the Human Curiosity, anxiety and craze for things which are NEW. Be it Fashion, Books, Films, Food or a Gift, the very word NEW evokes common emotions all over the Human race !

Clever filmmakers understood this Human weakness for NEW or NAYA quickly and film titles featuring this word were used in an attempt to draw audience attention and a bee-line to the ticket window. Right from the early Talkie days i.e. the 1930’s films with Naya/Nayi were showcased. Nayi Duniya, Nayi Roshni and Naya Zamana were brought in the 30’s. The trend slowly caught up and in the 40’s, there were 12 films with Nayi or Naya in their titles. These were, Nai Baat, Nayi Bhabhi, Nai Duniya, Nayi kahani, Nayi Maa, Nayi Reet, Nayi Roshni, Nai Taleem, Naya Sansar, Naya Tarana and Naya Zamana. Not to be outdone, the 50’s came up with 14 film titles with nayi or naya. Some of them were well known films like Naya Daur, Nai Delhi, Naya Andaz (remake of famous musical film Bazaar-1949) and Naya Paisa.

However, it was a moot question as to how many films with Naya and Nayi in their titles stood up to quench the curiosity of their audience !

Today’s film Naya Raasta was based on a Gujarati drama “Sarvodaya”, staged by Shri Deshi Natak Samaj, which played in Bhangwadi theatre, Bombay for a record period. It became a superhit drama. The owner of Jayant Desai Productions, chose this drama to make a film. It was directed by its owner Jayant Desai himself. Unlike the hit Gujarati drama, the film could not run for a long period and was drubbed at the Box Office.

My observation about the films made on popular or famous books, novels or dramas is that it was only the Bangla film industry which had succeeded in making films on famous works of well known authors. Films remade in Hindi from these Bangla films were always successful all over India. In the 1930s and the 1940s, most films made by Bangla filmmakers, especially New Theatres, were equally popular even in their Hindi editions.

Such success was never seen in Hindi films. In the first place not many films were made on popular works of well known authors of Hindi, unlike Bangla films, on a large scale or even Marathi films on a smaller scale. It seems Hindi audiences liked to enjoy imaginary and sheerly entertaining films churned out by the various ” Story departments” of our filmmakers.

Film Naya Raasta-53 had music by Chitragupta-the melody maker, ably assisted by Dilip Dholakiya. There were 8 songs in the film. Today’s song is the 4th song to be discussed here. It is sung by Chitragupta, Dilip Dholakiya and Laxmi Roy. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Agha, Manhar Desai, Bipin Gupta, Satyanarayana, Krishnakumari, Suryakumar, Umakant and many others.

Today’s song starts with English words Good Bye and Tata. Use of English words in the Mukhda of Hindi film songs is nothing new. Even in the 1933 film ” Karma”, there was a complete English song-“Now the Moon”. Again in the 1937 film ” Duniya na Maane” there was an English Poem recited by Shanta Apte with flawless pronunciation. In the 40’s, 50’s and then onwards in every decade English words in the Mukhada were found.

In the cast we find 2 interesting names-Satyanarayana and Surya kumar. Both were Dance Directors in Hindi films and both had a penchant for acting in the films. This habit is found in many directors too. The famous Alfred Hitchcock had a habit of making a cameo appearance in every of his films and it provided an interesting pastime game to his fans to locate him in the film. I too was one of the fans doing this religiously.

Robert aka Suryakumar (brother of Dancer/Choreographer Krishna Kumar) was born on 14-12-1924. He started his film career as assistant in the sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period, yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer’ was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films, that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded.

Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted Madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in the film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, when she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravan Kumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too, before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

The female singer in today’s song is Laxmi Roy. Laxmi Roy was the younger sister of Geeta Dutt. When Mukul Roy became a composer with his first film Bhed-50, he gave Laxmi Roy her first film song to sing. She was not a very good singer or her voice was not an extraordinary one. So no major composers noticed her. Chitragupta gave her one song in Bhakta Puran-52 and 2 songs in Nayaa Rasta-53. Composer Vinod tried her with one song in Aag ka Dariya-53. S. N. Tripathi gave her two songs in Nav Durga-53 and lastly she sang one song for Mukul Roy in Sailaab-56.

Pramod Chakravarty, who became a well known Director and producer later on, was working as assistant to Guru Dutt in Sailaab. During its making Laxmi and Pramod got married and Laxmi’s singing career came to a close ! In all she sang just 8 songs in 6 films.

Let us enjoy this interesting song….

tumse adab se kehta hoon madam

wo patta joker jismein samajh lo
bade bade patton ko kaata kaata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

office mein baithhi type karo tum
ghar mein pakaaun main roti
office mein baithhi type karo tum
ghar mein pakaaun main roti
tu meri maalik main tera chaakar
Kismat ye kaisi hai khoti
tu meri maalik main tera chaakar
Kismat ye kaisi hai khoti
ik din gulaabi raste pe gori
tum ko milega kaanta kaanta
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata

jeewan ko samjho na koi juaa
yoon haar ke ?? Baazi
jeewan ko samjho na koi juaa
yoon haar ke ?? Baazi
jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
jo yahaan khoye wo yahaan paaye
chhodo jee ab naaraaji
malmal raaste hain sabke waaste
sukh dukh ko ghar ghar baantaa baantaa
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
Good bye good bye Tata Tata
