Today’s song is from film ‘Bhedi Bangla’ (1949). This film was produced by Anand Subramanyam, under the banner of Jagriti films, owned by Master Bhagwan. The story, dialogues and songs were by Ehsaan Rizvi and music was by P Ramakant. This was a name used by C Ramchandra, because he was under contract with Filmistan and could not give music in his own name. It started with Raja Nene’s film Shadi Se Pehle’ in 1947, in which he first used his assistant’s name Paingankar (the joint MD was Karnad). His name was Ramakant Paingankar and was assisting Chitalkar for a long time. Later, for Bhagwan’s films like ‘Bhedi Bangla’, ‘Bhole Bhale’ (1949), ‘Babuji’ (1950), and ‘Bakshish’ (1950) also, Chitalkar used the pseudo name P Ramakant as MD (information from Marathi Chitrapat Sangeetkar Kosh by Madhu Potdar).

Master Bhagwan was a very hard working person. In the real sense, he brought in the wave of stunt films in the late 40s. After the films of Master Vithal and Fearless Nadia waned in their popularity by 1944-45, it was Master Bhagwan, who established his own Production house – Jagriti Films, and produced several stunt films. He had a set of actors and actresses, which included Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Azeembhai, Shanta Patel, Chanchal, Leela Gupte, Usha Shukla and Vitha Lokare.

The storyline for most of his films was also fixed. Two young vagabonds – Baburao Pehelwan and Bhagwan, come to Bombay in search of employment. One Sethji (Azeembhai) appoints them to protect him from the local criminal (Vasantrao Pehelwan). Sethji has a good looking daughter (one of the stock Heroines), who has a maid (another girl from the stock). Baburao loves Seth ji’s daughter and Bhagwan loves the maid. After lot many stunts and fighting scenes, the end would be happy. The same story with changed names and other minor changes was used in almost all his films like ‘Badla’, ‘Bahadur’, ‘Jalan’, ‘Madadgaar’, ‘Dosti’, ‘Shake Hand’, ‘Matlabi’, ‘Bach Ke Rehna’, ‘Bhole Bhale’, ‘Jeete Raho’ or such other films. The audience did not mind . They were happy with the stunts. (Did Nasir Hussain get inspiration from Bhagwan in this matter ?)

Master Bhagwan entered the film world with silent film ‘Bewafa Ashiq’ (1930). His first talkie film was ‘Himmat-e-Marda’ (1934). Initially, like all other heroes, even Bhagwan used to sing his own songs. Once he had gone to Columbia company for rehearsal and recording a song. While entering, he saw a young man sitting under a tree and writing something. After rehearsal, he saw that fellow again and even after recording the man was still writing something. Bhagwan went to him and asked with curiosity what was he writing. The man answered, I am writing songs and stories. He came to know that his name was Ehsaan Rizvi and that he too lives in Dadar like Bhagwan. He took Rizvi’s address and left.

In 1938, Bhagwan got his first film as a director- ‘Bahadur Kisaan’ (1938). He called Ehsan Rizvi and gave him the job of writing the story, dialogues and songs. From that day Ehsaan Rizvi became a part of his team. He wrote for at least 25 films of Bhagwan’s. Born in 1914, Rizvi wrote lyrics for 60 films, but most of them were B or C grade films. He however wrote dialogues and screenplay for some well known films like ‘Do Ustad’ (1959), ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960), ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ (1964), ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ (1971), ‘Gopichand Jasoos’ (1982) etc. He had shared the Filmfare award for dialogues of ‘Mughal e Azam’, with 3 other writers. He died on 16-1-1983.

Bhagwan and CR got introduced when Bhagwan was directing film ‘Bahadur Kisaan’ for producer Chandrarao Kadam. The MD was Meer Saheb and CR was his assistant. Of course, that time he was just Ram Chitalkar. Their friendship lasted for many more years. For film ‘Bahadur Kisaan’, the background music was composed by Naushad, CR and Sajjad Hussain. Naushad played piano, CR played organ and Sajjad played mandolin. Another person Prem, played clarinet. They were all struggling artistes then.

In 1942 Bhagwan directed ‘Sukhi Jeevan’, for which CR was the MD for the first time. Bhagwan and the producer Harishchandra Rao Kadam had some dispute on payments. Bhagwan decided to start his own production company and he started Jagriti Pictures. His first film was ‘Badla’ (1943). For this film he took 80,000 from a financier, with a condition of repaying one lakh rupees after the film is released. After this film Bhagwan churned out film after film in the stunt genre. In 1949, Bhagwan made film ‘Bhedi Bangla’, which was the first of its kind – a sort of horror cum mystery film. The film was a hit film. With this film Bhagwan had reached the zenith of his stunt films.

In this film, there were several scenes, where Bhagwan sees a ghost and his eyes widen and breath is held up. Due to the strain on the eyes, they became red and swollen and after some time, suddenly, he could not see anything. He thought that he has become blind. He shouted for his brother Shanker. Bhagwan was immediately taken to a hospital in Girgaon. The doctor examined him,gave him an injection and some tablets. That night he slept like a dead man, but after getting up on next day noon, he was happy that his eyesight was normal now.

Bhagwan had noticed that whenever his film’s trial show was arranged, a handsome young man would be present there. When he saw this man at the trial show of ‘Bhedi Bangla’ again, he inquired as to who he was. The young man told him that his name was Raj Kapoor and he was son of the great Prithviraj Kapoor. Bhagwan called him and asked him why he came. Raj kapoor said, “Sir, I like your stunt films. I am your fan. In my films, I copy your dance style. Why don’t you make a social film ?”. Few days later, even CR also pushed him hard to enter the social film genre now, so that CR can openly lend his name to Bhagwan’s films as MD and his film will get the benefit of his fame. Thereafter Bhagwan started thinking about it seriously and then ‘Albela’ happened. The rest is history, as they say! The story of Albela making, some other time. . .

The story of film Bhedi Bangla was,

Shyam (Baburao Pehelwan) and Manglu (Bhagwan) are friends and good for nothing. They come to Bombay to look for easy money. They pretend to be lame and blind and start begging. However, after few days, their secret is out and and the enraged public of Bombay gives them a sound thrashing. An onlooker calls them and asks if they would do a good job, instead of this nonsense. The agree and they are appointed as watchmen for a deserted haveli. It is owned by a Sethani (Tarabai – elder sister of Sitara Devi and mother of dancer Gopi Krishna). Her daughter is beautiful Prema (Leela Gupte). There is an estate manager also (Azeembhai – who later became a famous fight master in Hindi films), who does not like their coming there.

One day the friends find the dead body of the haveli’s maali (gardener) (Inamdar) in the premises of the haveli. The estate manager complains to the police. Police start investigations. Maali had a good looking daughter – Champa (Usha Shukla). While Manglu tries to take care of her, the estate manager tells police that he suspects this duo of murdering the maali. In absence of any proof, police do not arrest them but keep an eye on them.

Suddenly, the friends start seeing ghosts in the haveli. First few days, they are scared, but realise that this is all bogus and they try to reach the bottom of the matter. Finally, they unearth a plan of the estate manager to scare everybody, so that no one will remain there and he can conduct his gold smuggling business from there. He only has murdered the maali. After solid stunts and fighting scenes, the culprits are arrested and Shyam and Prema and Manglu and Champa are united. (658).

The film had 8 songs. Most songs are available on You Tube. 4 songs are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 5th song. It is a duet of Lata and Chitalkar. All in all, ‘Bhedi Bangla’ aka ‘The House of Mystery’ was a ‘paisa vasool‘ entertainment.

aansoo na bahaana
ab aansoo na bahaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana
aansoo na bahaana
ab aansoo na bahaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana

mast pawan is  phulwari mein
kali kali khilaati hai
mast pawan is  phulwari mein
kali kali khilaati hai
usi chaman mein raen andhere
shabnam neer bahaati hai
usi chaman mein raen andhere
shabnam neer bahaati hai
tum kehte ho is jag mein
bas hansna aur hasaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana
aansoo na bahaana
ab aansoo na bahaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana

sukh mein to hansti hai duniya
sabka yehi haal hai
sukh mein to hansti hai duniya
sabka yehi haal hai
lekin dukh utha kar koi
hanse to phir ye kamaal hai
lekin dukh utha kar koi
hanse to phir ye kamaal hai
jag ki reet badal kar dekho
dukh ko bhi sukh banaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana
aansoo na bahaana
ab aansoo na bahaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana

sach poocho do dil ka milna
kaanta bhi hai phool bhi
pyaar ko sach maano to sach hai
bhool kaho to bhool bhi
sach poocho do dil ka milna
kaanta bhi hai phool bhi
pyaar ko sach maano to sach hai
bhool kaho to bhool bhi
lekin dil mein himmat ho to
khud badlega zamaana
kaanton bhari ye raah se hai
muskuraate jaana

आँसू न बहाना
अब आँसू न बहाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना
आँसू न बहाना
अब आँसू न बहाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना

मस्त पावन इस फुलवारी में
कली कली खिलाती है
मस्त पावन इस फुलवारी में
कली कली खिलाती है
उसी चमन में रैन अंधेरे
शबनम नीर बहाती है
उसी चमन में रैन अंधेरे
शबनम नीर बहाती है
तुम कहते हो इस जग में
बस हँसना और हँसाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना
आँसू न बहाना
अब आँसू न बहाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना

सुख में तो हँसती है दुनिया
सबका येही हाल है
सुख में तो हँसती है दुनिया
सबका येही हाल है
लेकिन दुख उठा कर कोई
हँसे तो फिर ये कमाल है
लेकिन दुख उठा कर कोई
हँसे तो फिर ये कमाल है
जग की रीत बदल कर देखो
दुख को भी सुख बनाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना
आँसू न बहाना
अब आँसू न बहाना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना

सच पूछो दो दिल का मिलना
काँटा भी है फूल भी
प्यार को सच मानो तो सच है
भूल कहो तो भूल भी
सच पूछो दो दिल का मिलना
काँटा भी है फूल भी
प्यार को सच मानो तो सच है
भूल कहो तो भूल भी
लेकिन दिल में हिम्मत हो तो
खुद बदलेगा ज़माना
काँटों भरी ये राह से है
मुसकुराते जाना

Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog – 21
———————————————–

The last post I had posted on our wonderful musical blog was on 11th October 2017 !! After such a looooooooong gap, I am encouraged by what Sadanand Bhai has started and being one of the contributors (though a minor one) I am trying to post one song in this new year in my series ‘Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog’.

This reminds me of a funny proverb in Gujarati, ‘Mai Bhi Dich’. In olden days there were community dinners for various castes and there was a dinner hosted for Brahmins. All will sit on cleaned ground in rows and the host will come to each with salt in the hand and ask for the sub-caste of Brahmins. The town had maximum Audichya Brahmins, so the major response from the row will be ‘AauDICH’, which sounded ‘Dich’ ‘Dich’ on the whole. One Miyabhai was tempted to taste the wonderful smelling food, also set down in the row. When the host came to him he said ‘Ma Bhi Dich’ and exposed himself that he was not a Brahmin. (ha ha ha ha )

I am like that Miyabhai trying to present one song in this New Year.

The 1949 film ‘Bhedi Bangla’ was a stunt film produced by ‘Jagruti Pictures, Bambai’ (as the city was called then) and directed by Bhagwan. The star-cast included himself as well as Baburao, Azim, Shankar Mirajkar, Inamdar, KK Swamy, Leela Gupte, Usha Shukla, Tarabai etc.

The music is by P Ramakant to the lyrics are by Ehsan Rizvi. The film has eight songs and Lataji had sung five of them, according to the book ‘Lata Samagra’ – 3 Solos and 2 Duets with Chitalkar. HFGK is slent about the singers of 7 songs of this film, and attributes only one song to the credit of Lataji.


Song–Kaali Ghata Chhaaye Re (Bhedi Bangla) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Chitalkar, Lyrics – Ehsaan Rizvi, MD – P Ramakant

Lyrics

kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
ho oo oo oo
oo oo oo
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
madbhari rut mori
madbhari rutu mori sudh bisaraaye
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
ho oo oo oo
oo oo oo
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye

haaye khoyee khoyee hain khilti jawaaniya
sunne waala koi nahin preet ki kahaaniya
saawan to aa gaya
tu bhi chalaa aaye
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
ho oo oo oo
oo oo oo
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
 
tumne hamen paas bulaaya
door se pukaar ke
ji door se pukaar ke
daude huye aa gaye
saath ham bahaar ke
saath ham bahaar ke
ghunghat ab to khol de bijli laheraaye
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
ho oo oo oo
oo oo oo
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
 
ek koyal ki kookon ne
mann mera tadpaaya hai
upar se ik be-bulaaya mehmaan aaya hai
baadal garje darr laage
main kaise kahun jaaye
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye
ho oo oo oo
oo oo oo
kaali ghata chhaaye re
dupatta uda jaaye

काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
मदभरी रूत मोरी
मदभरी रूत मोरी सुध बिसराए
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये

हाए खोई खोई हैं खिलती जवानियाँ
सुनने वाला कोई नहीं प्रीत की कहानियाँ
सावन तो आ गया
तू भी चला आए
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये

तुमने हमें पास बुलाया
दूर से पुकार के
जी दूर से पुकार के
दौड़े हुये आ गए
साथ हम बहार के
घूँघट अब तो खोल दे बिजली लहराए
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये

एक कोयल की कूकों ने
मन मेरा तड़पाया है
ऊपर से इक बे-बुलाया मेहमान आया है
बादल गरजे डर लागे
मैं कैसे कहूँ जाये
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये
हो ओ ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
काली घाटा छाए रे
दुपट्टा उड़ा जाये

In children’s stories, comics etc, people would eat/ drink some stuff that would give them great strength/ supernatural powers. Who can forget the escapades of Asterix and co, who would drink magic potion prepared by druit Getafix that would give them supernatural powers which they would use to thrash Roman legionnaires.
