Today’s song is from film ‘Shahkaar’ (1947). Very few people must have heard about this film. That is probably because, it was made in 1947- the year of India’s partition. As the year 1947 began, news was circulating about the partition. Like many other industries, film industry was also worried. There was an air of uncertainty. Who will stay and who will migrate was hotly debated in the privacy of homes, studios and clubs. People looked at each others with suspicion. Muslims were worried about their safety in India, in spite of the assurances by Gandhi and Nehru.

Crores of rupees were invested in films. After the second world war started in 1939, lot of Black money was generated and much of it came to film industry. Investors, financiers and producers were worried about half made films. Everybody seemed to be in a hurry to finish his assignment on hand. Due to this the quantity of films increased, sadly at the cost of quality. 1947 saw a record number of films made in 1947- 181 Hindi films, the highest ever since films were made. It took another 40 years to break this record in 1988, when 185 films were made.

Almost 75 to 80 % films of 1947 were obscure and forgotten within a short time.Films like ‘Aisa Kyun’, ‘Atom Bomb’, ‘Barrister’, ‘Beete Din’, ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Chandrahaas’, ‘Dehati’, ‘Daulat Ke Liye’, ‘Extra Girl’, ‘Farz’, ‘Gaurav’, ‘Gudiya’, ‘Heera’, ‘Janata’, ‘Jhalak’, ‘Khandaani’, ‘Lalat’, ‘Manmaani’, ‘Mere Bhagwan’, ‘Mohan’, ‘Nai Baat’, ‘Pehla Pyar’, ‘Paro’, ‘Riwaaz’, ‘Shabari’, ‘Shahkaar’, ‘Tohfa’, ‘Toote Di’l, ‘Veerangana’ are some of the films made in 1947. How many of us even know about them? Actually, some of these were films in which well known and major stars of the times had acted. For example, ‘Mohan’ had Dev Anand as hero, ‘Lalat’ was the debut film of Usha Kiran (as Usha Marathe), Prem Adib and Vanmala had acted in ‘Chandrahaas’ etc.

Not that ALL films were bad. Certainly some famous and excellent films providing some milestones of Hindi cinema  were also made in 1947, like ‘Aapki Sewa Mein’ (first playback song of Lata Mangeshkar), ‘Bela’ (all 10 songs by Zohrabai Ambalawali), ‘Dard’ (debut song of Umadevi), ‘Elaan’ (a bold Muslim social film by Mehboob Khan), ‘Jugnu’ (the only film of Dilip Kumar and Noorjehan), ‘Meera’ (all 18 songs by MS Subbulaxmi), ‘Mirza Sahibaan’ (last film of Noorjehan in India), ‘Neel Kamal’ (debut of Raj Kapoor and Madhubala as lead pair), ‘Parwaana’ (last film of KL Saigal), ‘Shadi Se Pehle’ (first duet of Rafi and Lata) and ‘Shehnai’ (epoch making music by C Ramchandra).

Nevertheless partition did have an impact on the film industry, due to the migration of artistes from both countries. Lahore, an important city in the undivided Punjab in the pre-independence days was one of the major film making centres in India. Talented actors and musicians from all Punjab and Sindh area tried their luck in the Cine Industry at Lahore. Nevertheless, the biggest centre of film production was Bombay and it was every aspiring artist’s dream to go to Bombay and shine there.

The film activity at Lahore increased considerably in the early 1940s in terms of film production and music. Those days Lahore was called a supply source for Bombay, as many actors and musicians shifted their base to Bombay from there. In reality, a large number of star performers and music directors of Bombay film industry had their roots in the undivided Punjab. Many started careers in Lahore, some started from Calcutta and some even from Bombay itself. Most who were in Calcutta shifted to Bombay in early 40s ( but it had nothing to do with Partition). The list of such people is very long, but suffice to mention some well known names.

Noorjehan, Pran, KL Saigal, Prithviraj Kapoor and his sons, Shyam, Dilip Kumar, Surinder, Karan Dewan, Dev Anand, Balraj Sahni, Singer Khursheed, Mumtaz Shanti, Veena, Begum Para, Meena Shorey, Suraiya, Manorama, Kamini Kaushal, Shyama (Khursheed Akhtar), AR Kardar, M Sadiq, Suresh (Nazim Ahmed), Amar, Chetan Anand, Jhande Khan, Ghulam Haider, Pt Amarnath and his brothers Husnlal-Bhagatram, Hansraj Behl, S Mohinder, Feroz Nizami, Khursheed Anwar, Khayyam, Vinod, Shyamsunder, Kidar Sharma, Krishna Chander, OP Dutta, Saadat Hasan Manto, Qamar Jalalabadi, DN Madhok, Tanvir Naqvi, Prem Dhawan etc.

Many of the actors and producers used to shuttle between Lahore and Bombay for their work.

And then the PARTITION took place in 1947.

In the communal frenzy, polarisation of artistes took place. Hindus shifted to Bombay and Muslims left for Lahore. But there were some reverse migrations also in this period. One example each is of Sahir Ludhiyanvi who migrated to India, and Deebo Bhattacharya from Calcutta migrated to Karachi and prospered in Pakistan as a successful music Director.

Some of the families got divided, like Mehboob Khan opted to remain in India, but his brother MR Khan remained in Pakistan and worked as a well known producer. Juhi Chawla’s grandfather JC Anand and uncle Satish Anand stayed in Lahore. Consequently they became the pioneers of Pakistan Film Industry. After the divorce, Rafi’s wife also migrated to Pakistan with her children.

At the actual time of Partition some artists were in Lahore for film work. They were BR Chopra, Ramanand Sagar, IS Johar, Gulshan Rai, Omprakash, Jeevan, OP Nayyar, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Naqsh Lyallpuri, Surinder Kaur, Prakash Kaur and Pushpa Hans. They all left Lahore hurriedly and reached Bombay safely.

However this journey was not so safe for one actor – comedian Durga Prasad, known as Durga Mota. He was very fat. In the melee, he reached the Lahore station and somehow entered the train to Bombay. Suddenly a group of mad rioters entered the Lahore station and started killing the travellers. Most people ran helter skelter, but due to his heavy body, Durga Mota could not run and was cut into pieces on the Lahore station platform itself !

Same way many artists from Bombay left for Lahore and ALL of them reached safely.

I have full lists of who migrated, but to put it in short, some of the directors who migrated were,

Syed Shaukat Hussain Rizvi, SM Yousuf, Najam Naqvi, Munshi Dil, Nakshab Jarchavi, M Sadiq, Zia Sarhadi, Sibtain Fazli (of Fazli Brothers), ST Zaidi , Zahoor Raja, Wali Saheb and Manto.

Some of the heroes were- Nazeer, Sadiq Ali, Masood, Sudhir, Santosh, Ratan Kumar, Najmul Hussain, Suresh and Nasir Khan (both came back to India later), Sheikh Mukhtar.

Some of the actors were- M Ismail, Ajmal, Gulam Mohd, Kumar, Ghori, Majeed, Shahnawaz, Himalayawala, Shyam Kumar, Allauddin, Shah Shikarpuri, Charlie, Nazar Faizi etc.

Some of the Heroines were- Noorjehan, Meena Shorey, Khursheed, Zeenat Begum, Asha Posley, Najma, Kalawati, Rehana, Swarnalata, Ragini, Bibbo, Renuka Devi, Geeta Nizami, Maya Devi etc.

Some from the music field were- Khursheed Anwar, Inayat Hussain, Rafiq Gaznavi, GA Chisti, Ghulam Haider, Feroz Nizami, Nissar Bazmi, Nashaad, Tufail Faruqi, Tanvir Naqvi, Faiyaz Hasmi, Iqbal Bano, Premlata etc.

With so many people migrating to Pakistan at a time and the condition of Pakistan Film Industry then, it is a moot question, whether all these migrants could get work there and shine ?

There were 2 types of people who migrated-

  1. Those who had achieved their peaks already in India and
  2. Those who had just started their careers.

Obviously the second group, at least some of them, could do well there eventually.

Some of the successful migrants there were- Noorjehan, Khursheed Anwar, GA Chisti, Nissar Bazmi, Feroz Nizami, Najam Naqvi, Nakshab Jarchavi, Sibtain Fazli, Wali Saheb, Manto, Rashid Atre, Sudhir, Santosh, Asha Posley, Shameem, Najma, Yasmeen, Ragini, Zahoor Shah, Shaikh Iqbal, Himalayawala, Nazar, Rafiq Gaznavi, Tanvir Naqvi, Iqbal Bano etc.

The unfortunate ones were (some of them) – Meena Shorey, Ratan Kumar, M Sadiq, Charlie, Ghori, Kumar, Sheikh Mukhtar, Najmul Hussain, Neena, Kalavati, Maya Devi, Gulam Haider, Nashaad, Premlata etc.

Almost all the artists who shifted to Bombay prior to Partition did very well here.

There was a second wave of Migration in 1955-56, during which many artistes like Veera, Rattan Kumar, Rehana, Mumtaz Shanti, Meena Shorey, Wali Sahib, K Anwar etc migrated to Pakistan.

Partition did some damage to India, but as there was a second line waiting to take over, the impact was negligible. However, Pakistan had to build a new film industry with the help of the migrant artistes in almost all departments of film making. Once this generation ended their career, unfortunately there was not much of a second line to take over in Pakistan.

Here is an excerpt from a book “The Travels of Bollywood Cinema ” by Anjali Geeta Roy, in this connection…….

The rioting of 1947 set in motion irreversible, irrevocable migration. B R. Chopra and I S Johar were planning films in a big way for Lahore but had to run for their lives. Ramanand Sagar left in July, so did Gulshan Rai. Character actor Om Prakash (of Fateh Din fame, an all-time favourite skit relayed for years by Radio Lahore), comedian-bad man Jeevan and many others also left Lahore for Bombay. O P Nayyar recorded his immortal song Preetam Aan Milo/ Dukhia Jiya Bullai, Aan Milo at the His Master’s Voice studio in Lahore. He left Lahore only in 1948 when it became clear that people with the wrong religion were not going to return to their homes on either side of the Punjab. Writer Rajinder Singh Bedi escaped, sitting on top of a railway carriage carrying loads of Hindus and Sikhs out of Lahore. Song-writer Naqsh Lyallpuri began his literary career in Lahore as a journalist but had to leave in 1947. Punjabi singers, the sisters Surinder Kaur and Prakash Kaur, and Pushpa Hans also left Lahore.

Migration in the other direction also took place. Nazir and his wife Swarnlata, Noorjahan and her husband Shaukat Husain Rizvi, character actor Alauddin and many others headed for Lahore. Manto came in January 1948, music directors Ghulam Haider and Khurshid Anwar followed some years later and director M. Sadiq probably in 1969 or 1970. Meena Shori, Khurshid and Mumtaz Shanti also immigrated to Lahore. Some Pakistani actors in Lahore continued to use Hindu filmic names. Santosh Kumar (Musa Raza) and Sudhir (Shah Zaman), the two most famous heroes of the 1950s and 60s represented such practice. On both sides, initially considerable goodwill existed between the two film communities.

Some families were divided. Thus for example, while Nazir shifted to Lahore, his nephew K. Asif stayed on in Bombay. Kardar stayed on but his brother Nusrat Kardar and son Rauf Kardar returned to Lahore. While Suraiya, her mother and grandmother settled in Bombay, many of her other relatives shifted to Lahore. Rafi stayed on to reign supreme in Bombay while his parents and siblings were in Lahore.

There were some cross-religion marriages that created peculiar challenges. Raj Kapoor’s maama (maternal uncle) Mr Mehra married a Muslim, converted to Islam and stayed in Lahore. A unique case of reverse migration took place as well: poet Sahir Ludhianvi (Abdul Hai) left Lahore for India.

In the context of partition and its effect, if one sees, the film ‘Shahkaar’ was an ordinary film. The director of the film, the hero Shah Nawaz and few actors like Nazma, Majid, Mehdi Raza, Maqbool etc. migrated to Pakistan after partition. Obviously these artistes were in a hurry to complete the film, which affected the quality of the film.

The music director was K Datta aka Datta Korgaonkar. There were only 7 songs – all written by Arzoo Lucknowi. The film was directed by S Khalil, who directed 7 films in all in India. Shah Nawaz continued his career in Pakistan by acting in 41 films there (32 Urdu and 9 Punjabi). He died on 18-6-1971 in Karachi. Today’s song is sung by a young Mohd Rafi and Shamshad Begam. Rafi sounds very fresh here.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘थ’ – थोड़ी सी ज़िंदगानी राजा बीते ना जवानी ॰ ॰ ॰

– – – –

दिल तू भी गा, प्यार में मुस्कुरा ॰ ॰ ॰

Yes, we grew up with and learned all about the heart, and the smiles and love, listening to your songs. . . how we wish there were more. . .

– – – –

Scraped through with some difficulty for today’s episode – not many songs, and duet at that, beginning with this letter ‘थ’.

Today’s song is from a lesser known film from 1957 – ‘Laxmi Pooja’.  The film is produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Hemlata Pictures, Bombay. The list of actors of this film reads like – Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Jeevan, Niranjan Sharma, Anant Kumar, Babu Raje, Praveen Pal, Indira, Manju, Shri Bhagwan, Sukumar, Rajrani, and Meenu Mumtaz etc.

The nine songs of this film are all written by Bharat Vyas, and the music is composed by Chitragupt. Quite a melodious song, this offering is. The singing voices are those of Shamshad Begum and Rafi Sb.

Apparently the lady’s beau has a stronger attachment to religious pursuits, much to the dismay of the lady. And she is trying to win him over with her winsome expressions about youth being wasted. And the gentleman replies – it is not just youth, but the entire life that is getting wasted, so let us sing the praises of the Good Lord. The lady is not giving up her rightful claim and she too presses on with her efforts to snare him with the promises of love. Our man, appears to be made of sterner stuff – and absolutely does not give up by the time 3rd antaraa starts to play (somewhat breaking the rule we have always found useful in such song situations).

There is another song of a similar theme – from the 1975 film ‘Sanyaasi’ – “Chal Sanyasi Mandir Mein“. It would be interesting to compare notes and lyrics. . . 🙂

Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Thodi Si Zindgani Raja Beete Na Jawaani  (Lakshmi Pooja) (1957) Singer – Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Chitragupt
Chorus

Lyrics

thodi si zindgani
raja beete na jawaani
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re

teri thodi si zindgaani
pal pal beeti jaaye jawaani
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

rang rangeele raja aaja

rang rangeele raja aaja
kar le dil ki baat re
baat baat mein jeevan beete..ey..ey..ey
baat baat mein jeevan beete
kyon na tu sharmaat re
kyon na tu sharmaat re
oo oo hoye
aai hai rut mastaani
rim jhim barse roop ka paani
dekho saawan ke badra chhaye re
kyon na nainon se nainan milaaye re
kaahe heere se janam gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

nain baan hain
palken dori
nain baan hain palken dori
chitwan chhode baan re
chitwan chhode baan re
roop jawaani behta paani..ee..ee
roop jawaani behta paani
kyon karta abhiman re
kyon karta abhiman re
teri preet badi deewaani
preet laga prabhu se agyaani
jahaan dhokha na koi khaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re
kaahe masti bhare din gawaaye re
kyon na govind ke gun gaaye re

The movie had eleven songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that this song is a qawwali between the two genders which tends to be an entertaining musical nok-jhonk between the two genders.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Today (31 march 2018) is the last day of the financial year 2017-18 that is followed in India. One would like to close the accounts of the financial year meeting all the targets and start the new financial year with a clean slate.

Today also happens to be the 46th remembrance day of Meena Kumari (1 August 1933– 31 March 1972). I was a school kid when she died and we school kids discussed this matter among ourselves. Our verdict was that her demise would help the box office prospects of “Paakeeza”which was scheduled to be released soon.

She died at quite a young age. She was not even 39 at that time. With the benefit of hindsight, one feels that she was in urgent need to psychological counselling just like Dilip Kumar, who was the male counterpart of Meena Kumari in playing tragedy roles but who successfully managed to come out of the after-effects of playing tragic roles in his career.

Ironicallty, Meena Kumari had begun her career playing cheerful happy roles, against Kishore Kumar, no less.

A vast majority of movies featuring Meena Kumari are already YIPPEED in the blog so there is no scope of discussing a song picturised on Meena Kumari on this occasion. Fortunately, I could still come across some un YIPPEED movies with Meena Kumari in them. “Daana Pani”(1953) is one such movie. This movie, which was directed by V M Vyas for Sunrise Pictures, Bombay had Meena Kumari, Shashi Kapoor senior, Weera, Chhagan, Romeo, Radha Krishnan, Chitra, Wasti etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Daana Pani”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Shamshad Begam. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohan Junior.

Only the audio of the song is available. Uploaders of the audio link (s) of this song have carried the picture of Shashi Kapoor in the link, but the Shashi Kapoor in this movie was a different person and senior in age compared to Raj Kapoor’s kid brother (who was only 15 years of age when this movie was released). The song was most likely picturised on Bharat Bhushan and Meena Kumari. I request our knowledgeable reades to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Missing Films of 1960s – 64
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we bring on board another missing film from 1967. ‘Shamsheer’ is an obscure film, which many people won’t remember now. We become aware of such films, mostly through the Geet Kosh listings.

A film by the same name was also produce a decade or so earlier – in 1953. ‘Shamsheer’ – meaning a ‘sword’ – this word appears in the title of many films actually. There are films by the name ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ – in 1940 and 1953 (yes, in 1953, both ‘Shamsheer’ and ‘Shamsheerbaaz’ appeared in the same year). Then way back in 1935, we have another film titled ‘Shamsheer e Arab’.

The 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’ was produced under the banner of Sangram Pictures of Bombay, and and was directed by Babubhai Mistry. This film was costume drama. One look as the list of actors, and we realize this is a Sheikh Mukhtar film, with the list of actors reading as Prithviraj, Sheikh Mukhtar, Geetanjali, Ajeet Singh, Aruna Irani, Jeevan, Maruti, Helen, Madhumati, Lakshmichaya, Jeevankala, Ratnamala, Sarita, Uma Dutt, Paulson, Ridku, and Meenakshi.

Geet Kosh lists six songs for this film, which are written by four songwriters – two songs by Aish Kanwal, two by Asad Bhopali, one by Bharat Vyas and one by Madhukar Rajasthani. This song is written by Asad Bhopali. Music direction is by the duo of Lala-Sattaar. Readers are familiar with the trio of Lala-Asar-Sattaar. Of these, Lala and Sattaar also gave music together as a duo.

So presenting today, the first song of the 1967 film ‘Shamsheer’. It is a quick paced ‘nok jhonk’ type duet which is sung by Raf Sb and Shamshad Begum. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information for this film and this song, if available.

Song – Aaj Ye Bijli Kahaan Giregi  (Shamsheer) (1967) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Asad Bhopali, MD – Lala Sattaar

Lyrics

haa haa

aaj ye bijli kahaan giregi

kahin bhi jaaun

jaavo na hum se bolo
jhoothe zamaane bhar ke
jaavo na hum se bolo
main na kahin ka raha
tum se mohabbat kar ke
tum to nazar na phero
jaati kahaan ho thehro
chhodo kalaai meri
chhodo ji
arre ji..eeo chhammiaa. . .
aaj ye bijli kahaan giregi
sach sach bataao na
sach sach bataao na
dum lak mach lak
kahaan chali ho

chalo ji apna rasta naapo
humko sataao na

kya hai qusoor mera
jo tum ho roothi roothi
kya hai qusoor mera
waade tumhaare jhoothe
kasmen tumhari jhoothin
matlab ke yaar ho tum
kitne makkaar ho tum
tauba ye kaisi baaten karti ho
arre kyon na karun
to karo phir
chalo ji apna rasta naapo
humko sataao na
humko sataao na
dum lak mach lak
kahin bhi jaaun

aa haa
aaj ye bijli kahaan giregi

A few of our regulars these days are finding themselves out of their comfort zone. Raja, for instance, is being forced to write “hurrriedly” typed articles while ho would like to get his articles typed in a more leisurely manner. The readers though are unable to detect much differences between his test match like batting and T20 like batting.

Even I find myself out of my comfort zone since yesterday. This happens with me when I am travelling and I find that my internet connecting device aka dongle is unable to catch signals even in “major” places in the state. Clearly providing good internet connectivity to itinerant bloggers is not there in the manifasto of any party in the state. 🙂

I managed to post the only post of yesterday at just past 11 PM and thus avoided the ignominy of that day ending up as a dot day.

Today one post has already apperared, an article by our in house encyclopeadia, posted by Sudhir Jee. So today is no longer a dot day. Let me also add at least one more post.

Since I am on travel, I do not have access to all the resources that I otherwise have at my base. For instance, noting down lyrics of songs becomes a tall order and a time consuming process while on tour. So I rely on lyrics where the hard work has already been done in the past and they are on the portable netbook that I carry with me during my journeys. A few such lyrics vare fortunately available. That is how I was able to post yesterday’s article at the eleventh hour.

The song under discussion is no different. This song is from “Mud Mud Ke Dekh”(1960). This movie has eight songs in it. Four of them have been covered. I had noted down the lyrics of the remaining songs some time back and i had left them in my hard drive to be used later.

When I do such “advance” planning then I find so many great songs that I am tempted to hold them back for some specia occasions. But if I hold all of them back then I find myseld=f running short of songs for immediate discussion.

When I heard this Rafi-Shamshad Begam duet again just now, I realised that I had liked this song so much that I had held it back. But now that I am badly in need of already noted down lyrics, any song will have to be utlised, and so I present this superb “chhed chhaad” genre of song from “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl. This is a Punjabi style energetic song where the singers, including male and female chorus participate with gusto. The song is clearly picturised as a dance song where lots and lots of dancers participate including the lead pair ( I hope). When I check up, I find that this movie had another duet song sung by Mukesh and an unidentified female voice. So I am unable to guess which song was picturised on whom. I cannot be sure about the picturisation and so I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Once again, I am feeling like I was forced to cover this song earlier that I would have liked. That is how good this song is. 🙂
