“Panchhi” (1944) was directed by Barkat Mehra for N I Studio, Lahore. This “social” movie had Ajmal, Manorama, Hari Shivdasani, Salma, Gulam Qadir,Salim Raza etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it and these songs were as obscure as the movie itself.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Panchhi”(1944) to appear in the past. HFGK is silent about the details of this song, but the uploader mentions Zeenat Begam as the singer and Akhtar Chugtai as the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Amarnath.

This extremely obscure song, with some superb lyrics sounds like a forgotten gem that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

I have not been able to get a word/ phrase right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Today (30 november 2017) is the birth centenary of Pushpa Hans (30 november 1917- 9 december 2011). She was an actor- singer in Hindi and Punjabi movies. Wikipedia page on her contain very little and incomplete details on her. According to wikipedia, she only worked in two Hindi movies. viz Apna Desh (1949) and “Sheesh Mahal”(1950). We in this blog are aware that she worked in “Singaar”(1949) and “Kaale Baadal”(1951) as well. Songs sung by her, from these four movies are represented in this blog.

Pushp Hans was a big name in Punjabi movies and music. But as mentioned earlier, her wikipedia page is silent about most of her achievements. She has sung and acted in “Chaman” (1948), which was the first punjabi hit movie for music director Vinod.

She was honoured with Padmshree in 2007.

After her film career, she served as the chief editor of “The Eves Weekly”, a women’s lifestyle magazine for 17 years.

As a tribute to Pushpa Hans on the occasion of her birth centenary, here is a song from “Apna Desh”(1949).

Very little is known about this movie. Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, had given a very detailed account of this movie in the past. Here is what he had to say about this movie.

In 1947,India was divided into two countries. The Partition was a sad and torturous experience for the people on Borders and created thousands of Refugees on both sides. Thousands of families were separated and almost a million died during the Riots. No wonder that this provided inspiration to the film industry to make films on this topic-the event and its aftermath. Some Hindi commercial films based on trauma of partition were made, like, Lahore-49, Apna Desh-49, Firdaus-53, Nastik-54, Chhalia-60, Amar rahe ye pyar-61 and Dharmaputra-61. Three of these films revolved around tales of women abducted in the aftermath of partition..

APNA DESH-1949 was a brilliant film made by V.Shantaram, famous for making offbeat, socially relevant films. He made this film which was distributed all over India and in Ceylon as well. Within a few days, the film came under severe criticism and there were cries of banning the film. Baburao Patel,with his acidic style dubbed this film as Anti-National. In several cities, the film shows had to be cancelled due to Mob troubles.

What was there in this film to invoke such reaction ? This was a story of a Punjabi Hindu woman-Mohini. During riots of partition, she is abducted and raped in Pakistan by Muslims. Her family escapes to India. After some time a devastated Mohini returns to India. Her family and the society refuse to accept her. She is insulted and thrown out. in vengeance of this rejection, she decides to become a smuggler. She sends clothes and arms to Pakistan in exchange of Gold and Money. She falls in love with another refugee, Satish. Finally, when the secret is revealed and Satish is arrested and accused of smuggling, Mohini comes out and surrenders. She is arrested. End of the film !

Most Indians felt that Indian women will never react in this way. They would rather commit suicide. The film was even called ” Apna Trash”. Almost every newspaper viz The Times, The Hindu, The patriot etc condemned the film as Anti national. 1949 was also the period when Pakistan had infiltrated the army and Tribesmen in Kashmir. This had already created an Anti-Pakistani feeling in the country. Under the barrage of opposition, the film was forced to be withdrawn from the Theatres, not because of any legal considerations, but due to commercial reasons.

The strangest thing about this film film is, while ALL other Prabhat and Rajkamal films are available, ONLY THIS FILM is missing from the archives. Its copy is not available even in the Film Archives at Pune. V.Shantaram never gave any explanation for this while he was alive.

I have not seen this film. The simple reason was that Shantaram’s films were rated very low on entertainment, as they were films with social causes. By the time I realised the film’s importance, the film was withdrawn and I could never see it. As such 1947 onwards and especially in 1949, so many musical films were released that Shantaram’s films were low on priority. The film details, background, contents and the aftermath of this remarkable film can be found in ” Mourning the Nation-Indian Cinema in the wake of Partition”, a book by Bhaskar Sarkar as well as in ” Violent Belongings, Partition, gender and National Culture” another book by Kavita Daiyya.

Though only the audio of the song is available, this song was clearly picturised on her as well. Dewan Sharar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Purushottam.

“Kaneez”(1949) was directed by Krishn Kumar for Caravan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shyam, Munawwar Sultana, Urmila, Kuldeep Kaur, Cuckoo, Tiwari, Ramesh Sinha, Shyama etc in it.

There were twelve songs in the movie. Nine of these songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the tenth song from “Kaneez”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Shatir Ghaznavi is the lyricist.

The song is picturised on Munawwar Sultana who plays the lead role of a rich heiress who is forced to live as a servant (Kaneez) in her own household becuase of the machinations of the villains, before justice is done and she is restored to her usual position.

The movie had Ghulam Haider and Hansraj Bahl as the two music directors. This song is composed by Ghulam Haider.

The video version has poor audio and it is incomplete as well. The record version is longer and full (with one additional stanza) and its audio quality is better as well.

Here is the second song from “Bindiya”(1946) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kalyani Das. Pt Rammurty (who I assume is same as Rammurty Chaturvedi) is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kamal Dasgupta.

I have not been able to get one word (may be more) right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Today’s song is from the film Hamrahi-45, a remake of Bangla film ‘Udayer Pathey’-44, made by New Theatres, Calcutta and a maiden Directorial Debut by Bimal Roy, both for Bangla and Hindi.

This film was clearly based on Leftist Philosophy, wherein the oppressed classes are up against the richer classes. Bengal has always been a hub of political activities. Bangla people breathe in and breathe out politics. Every Bengalee is perpetually against the establishment, be it a Capitalist or even their own Government. No wonder the Left Front Ruled West Bengal from 1977 to 2011 and then collapsed due to their own people !

Story of this film was written by Jyotirmoy Roy, who later married the Heroine of this film, Binota Bose ( and restricted her work only to Bangla films wherein he was associated some way). He also wrote the dialogues. The lyrics were by Munshi Zakir Hussain. Two Bangla songs remained in the Hindi version also.Both were written by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. One of them was “Jana Gana Mana “, which became our National Anthem after Independence. This is already discussed in the Blog. The other Bangla song is sung by Hemant Kumar and Binota Bose.

The cast of the Bangla and Hindi versions was almost same, except few actors who replaced the Bangla actors. These were Bhupendra Kapoor,Hiralal,Deen Dayal Luthra and Ramesh Sinha. The lead pair of Radha Mohan Bhattacharya and Binota Bose was the same in both versions. Other cast included Tulsi Chakravarty,Meera Datta, Maya Bose, Manorama etc etc. Music was by the great Raichand Boral in both versions.

Binota Bose Roy proved to be a one film wonder in Hindi films, though she sang songs in films Wapas-43 ( 3 songs ) and Hamrahi-45. Binota Basu was born in a Brahma family in 1925 on Kojagari Lakshmi Purnima Tithi and was therefore called Lakshmi. Her father Satya Sundar Basu was an advocate in Patna High court. Binota was one of his six daughters.

Satya Sundar was a lawyer by profession but his music was his first love and after court hours his routine was to sing and play musical instruments like the Sitar, the organ and many others. Binota’s mother was a good singer too. So Binota had music in her blood and she entered films as a playback artiste in Dikshul (1943).

Raichand Boral had introduced her to Pankaj Kumar Mallick, the music director of the film. This happened after the family shifted to Calcutta. While in Calcutta, Binota along with her sisters came in close touch with cousin Chinmohan Sehanbish , who in turn introduced them to the legendary Debabrata Biswas from whom Binota got some early training in music. Under Raichand Boral’s guidance her first major success was in Wapas (1943), where she sang “Albela Mastana”, “Jeevan Hai Bekar” and “Bhool Na Jana”. All the songs became popular.

The next year Binota became a star with her acting and singing in Bimal Roy’s Udayer Pathey (1944) and with the Hindi version Humrahi got an all India exposure. Her popularity touched the sky but soon she got married to Jyotirmoy Roy, who had written the story of Udayer Pathey.
After marriage she was allowed to work mostly in films associated with her husband. These included Abhijatri (1947), Diner Parey Din (1949), Shankhabani (1951), Nagardola (1956), Taka Ana Pai (1956), Kancha Mithhey (1957).In Abhijatri she was paired with her first hero Radhamohan Bhattacharya again.

After her husband’s death in 1961 she withdrew from the film world but came back later to give memorable performances as character artiste in Tapan Sinha’s Jatugriha (1964), Mrinal Sen’s Calcutta 71 (1971), Chhayateer (1972) and finally Hangsharaj (1976). She won the best actress and best supporting actress awards from the prestigious Bengal Film Journalists’ Association a number of times. Binota Roy was inspired to write by her writer husband. She is credited with several short stories which were published in popular Bengali magazines. A collection of her stories was first published as a book titled Mayamukur in 1964. Binota Roy died on the twenty eighth day of July, 1978 and was survived by sons Ramya and Samya and daughter Suchita.( adapted from Dr. J.P.Guha, with thanks.)

With this film, the great Bimal Roy made his debut as an independent Director. A lot has been written on him, so here is a short synopsis of his life. Bimal Roy was one of the greatest ever directors of Indian cinema. In his films we see a romantic idealist to whom any form of exploitation – social, religious or economic was unacceptable. He is particularly noted for his realistic and socialistic films like Do Bigha Zamin, Parineeta, Biraj Bahu, Madhumati, Sujata, and Bandini, making him an important director of Hindi cinema. He won a number of awards throughout his career, including eleven Filmfare Awards ( 7 for Best Director and 4 for Best film), 6 National Film Awards, and the International Prize of the Cannes Film Festival.

Born on 12-7-1909 , Bimal Roy came from a well to do Bengali family and entered films as a cameraman with New Theatres Pvt. Ltd. where he photographed films like “Devdas” (1935) and “Mukti” (1937). His first film as Director was “Udayer Pathey” (1944) in Bengali. The film was a big critical success.

Bimalda migrated to Bombay after the collapse of New Theatres. His first film there was “Maa” (1952) for Bombay Talkies. He then formed his own production unit and made his breakthrough film, “Do Bigha Zamin” (1953). It was both a commercial success and a critical success, winning an International Prize at the 1954 Cannes Film Festival. The film’s success paved the way for the Indian New Wave cinema. This followed three adaptations of Sarat Chandra Chatterjee, “Parineeta” (1953), “Biraj Bahu” (1954) and “Devdas” (1955). In between Bimalda also directed the emotional “Baap Beti” (1954) and the sensitive “Naukri” (1954). He always preferred either Salil Chaudhari or S D Burman as his Music Directors.

Bimalda’s last production before he died was “Benazir” (1964) directed by S Khalil. He was working on a project to star Dharmendra and Sharmila Tagore when he passed away on 8-1-1-1966 after a long illness.

The story of film Hamrahi was….

Anup(Radhamohan Bhattacharya) is a poor literary man. Sumitra( Rekha Mitra) is his sister. . A rich friend of Sumitra, Gopa ( Binta Bose), invites her to a party at her house. Sumitra had to come back from her friends house with the stigma of a thief. Anup sees his editor friend. The friend gives Anup a tip for a job. Anup takes it and accepts the job of a publicity officer under Rajendranath, a millionaire. Anup has to write speeches for Rajendranath( Ramesh Sinha), the very first of which brings him great acclaims.

Rajendranath craves for more fame and name. Anup meets Gopa at Rajendranath’s library while writing a speech. He learns that Gopa belongs to the house where his sister Sumitra was insulted. He leaves the job then and there. Rajendranath cannot do without Anup. He sees Anup at his house and somehow manages to get him back to write a presidential speech for him. He also promises to publish Anup’s forthcoming novel and takes the manuscript from him. Gopa sees the manuscript and starts reading it half heartedly but by the time she finishes the manuscript she is over-whelmed. She feels a deep sense of respect for the authour Anup. The novel deals with the lives of the workers and their problems in life. Gopa becomes deeply interested in the subject. She visits workers cottages in the bustees with Anup, and see things first-hand. She feels herself a stranger amongst the labourers but feels that Anup belongs to them. He is one of them.

Gopa attends labour meetings incognito. Rajendranath comes to know about Gopa’s recent movements and is worried. Meantime, he publishes Anup’s novel claiming the authorship for himself. Gopa gets the shock of her life at Rajen’s conduct. Rajendranath receives great ovations from all sides for writing such a masterly novel. The day of the big labour meeting. Gopa, while passing by the library hears her brother speaking on the phone. Rajen is instructing Ambika a man of the mill, to break the meeting, even at the cost of physical injury to Anup the leader. Gopa rushes to the meeting site. She reaches just a bit too late. Anup is assaulted. He is lying on the ground bleeding profusely. Gopa with tears in her eyes kneels down and tries to get back Anup to consciousness. While she is busy rendering first aid to Anup, Rajen appears on the scene and takes Gopa back home by force.

Next morning News papers flash the news about the dispersed labour meeting. Gopa gets headliness as the millionaires daughter siding with the workers cause. The drama in the life of Gopa takes quick and peculiar turns. she forsakes her pride of birth and wealth and goes with Anup to fight for the down-trodden millions.

The last scene of the film shows Anup and Gopa walk towards the rising Sun, hoping to start a new life together, while her father Rajendranath watches them with wet eyes, from his balcony !

In the film’s remake Naya Zamana-1971, Dharmendra and Hema Malini leave the house in millionaire father Ashok kumar’s Limousine. Satyajit Ray in his version of this film, Mahanagar-1963, shows Hero and Heroine walk out and merge into the moving crowd outside.

True to the cinematic branding of actors, Hamrahi Hero Radha Mohan Bhattacharya who played the incorruptible ‘Bhadralok’Hero Anup, repeated his role in Kabuliwala-56 (Bangla film) and Akaler Sandhaney-80. Hamrahi-45 writer Jyotirmoy Roy was an IPTA worker. He was honoured by IPTA for his dialogues of the film, which depicted the Bengali melodrama between inherited and earned wealth.
The film had 7 songs. Today’s song is the 4th song to be posted.

Lyrics

bahaar ke din aaye
din hain bahaar ke aaye
ik naya
ik naya sandesa laaye ae

jhoome hai daali daali
hanste hain phool bhi khil ke ae ae
jhoome hai daali daali
hanste hain phool bhi khil ke
rut badal gayi gulshan ki
purva
purva ban mein lahraaye
rut badal gayi gulshan ki
purva ban mein lahraaye

ranj-o-gham dil ke saare ae ae
ranj-o-gham dil ke saare ae
kya jaane kahaan sidhaare ae
ranj-o-gham dil ke saare ae ae
kya jaane kahaan sidhaare
van jhoome man bhi jhoome
khud apni kahi bhulaaye
din hain bahaar ke aaye
ik naya sandesa laaye

tanhaai mein chupke chupke
tanhaai mein chupke chupke
pardesi preetam se ae ae ae
pardesi preetam se
birha ki bechain kahaani
jaa ke kaun sunaaye ae ae
birha ki bechain kahaani
jaa ke kaun sunaaye ae
sunaaye ae
din hain bahaar ke aaye
ek naya sandesa laaye ae
din hain bahaar ke aaye

Song-Unhen yaad aaye guzra zamaana (Naseeb)(1945) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-I C Kapoor, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye
haan unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye guzra zamaana
ho mere angna mein chupke se aana
unhen yaad aaye

chori chori se karte thhe baaten
chori chori se karte thhe baaten
unki galiyon mein meri mulaakaaten
ho mere sapnon ki duniya basaana
unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye
haan unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye

hare kheton mein peepal nishaani
do dilon ki wo meethhi kahaani
hare kheton mein peepal nishaani
do dilon ki wo meethhi kahaani
tera bansi baja ke bulaana
tere bansi baja ke bulaana
hamen yaad aaye
hamen yaad aaye
haan hamen yaad aaye
hamen yaad aaye

mere dil mein sada tum rahoge
mere dil mein sada tum rahoge
wo karoongi baja(?) tum kahoge
ho tumhen meri kasam na bhulaana
tumhen yaad aaye
tumhen yaad aaye
haan tumhen yaad aaye
tumhen yaad aaye
tumhen yaad aaye guzra zamaana
ho more angna mein chupke se aana
tumhen yaad aaye
