Today’s song is from yet another Historical movie-Padmini-1948. Like the last post, even this film story is connected with Rajasthan, by coincidence.

The film was made by the Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay – owned by the Producer, Director and Lyricist of this film – Wali Sahab. Music Director was Ghulam Haider and the cast consisted of Mumtaz Shanti (wife of the director Wali Sahab), Ashok kumar, Mumtaz Ali, Maya Devi, Neelam, Sultana, A.Shah and others.

Film Padmini-48 was the second Historical movie in which Ashok Kumar had ‘acted’. The first one was ” Humayun”-1945. In that film, according to Isaq Mujawar, author of several books on old films and artistes,” Ashok kumar was ridiculed by the theatre audience for his feminine acting and running with the war gear on the screen. he looked so funny in that attire that whole audience was laughing loudly at him” (book-Screenplay). Obviously, Ashok Kumar, who had an image of a simple romantic Hero in the Bombay Talkies films with Devika Rani and later with Leela Chitnis, was a misfit in the Historical role. Looks like he did not realise this or did not care for it and accepted the second such film again.

Same case was with Ashok Kumar’s Mythological films. The first mythological film that he acted in was ‘ Savitri”-1937 with Devika Rani as Savitri. Ashok Kumar was still a new actor and this was his only 4th film. He had yet to get branded as a Romantic hero, but the Mythological role of Satyawan did not suit him at all. When one sees some photos of this film, one will be confused as to who is Satyawan and who is Savitri. Even in the photos he looked so odd and awkward. In Spite of this, he acted in another Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu “-1946, with Shanta Apte. Here, he was Abhimanyu and did not suit the role at all due to his age, which was 35 years. Shanta Apte as Uttara was also over 30 years old. Thankfully, good sense prevailed and Ashok Kumar did not act in such films in the Hero’s role thereafter !

In the film Padmini-1948, actress Sultana had done a role. Her sisters Zubeida and Shehzadi had quit films in late 30’s after their marriage, but Sultana continued in films. Sultana, also known as Sultana Razaaq, was one of the earliest film actresses from India and acted both in silent movies and later in talkie movies. She was daughter of India’s first female film director, Fatima Begum. Zubeida (leading actress of India’s first talkie film Alam Ara -1931) was the younger sister of Sultana. The youngest sister was Shehzadi-also an actress. Actress Mehtab (Sohrab Modi’s wife), whose real name was Najma, was the step sister of these girls. Najma was the daughter of Marium, one of the wives of Nawab of Sachin.

Sultana was among the few girls who entered films at a time when it was not considered an appropriate profession for girls from respectable families, let alone Royalty. Born in the Surat city of Gujarat in western India, Sultana was a stunningly beautiful Muslim princess, the daughter of Nawab Siddi Ibrahim Muhammad Yakut Khan III of Sachin State and Fatima Begum. She had two sisters, Zubeida and Shehzadi, both actresses. However, there is no record of a marriage or a contract having taken place between the Nawab and Fatima Bai or of the Nawab having recognised any of her children as his own, a prerequisite for legal paternity in Muslim family law. Actually, the Nawab had 3 wedded wives and Fatima was an ‘ outside’ arrangement.

Sultana was a popular actress in the silent movie era, usually cast in romantic roles. She started her career as an actress in Veer Abhimanyu (1922) film in 1920s and later performed in several silent films. Later, she also acted in talkie movies. Sultana did sexy roles in films and earned a name as “Sultry Sultana”. She acted in 20 Silent films. She continued acting after the Talkie films started and worked in 19 Talkie films. Her last film was ‘ Girdhar Gopal ki Meera’-1949.. She came into limelight when she filed a case against Yassir Hussain Lalji, son of the chief of Bombay Municipality, in 1931, claiming to be his wife and demanding a sum of Rs. 5 lakhs in those days !

When India was partitioned in 1947, she migrated to Pakistan with her husband, a wealthy man named Seth Razaaq. Her daughter, Jamila Razaaq, was also encouraged by her to act in Pakistani films and she produced a film in Pakistan, named Hum Ek hain (1961), written by famous scriptwriter, Fayyaz Hashmi. The film was partly shot in colour, which was rare those days, but it failed miserably and Sultana stopped producing any films afterwards.

Sultana’s daughter, Jamila Razaaq, married the well known Pakistani cricketer Waqar Hasan, who is the brother of filmmaker Iqbal Shehzad. He runs a business under the name National Foods at Karachi. (Author’s note- This is based on information collated from the book ‘Asli Nakli Chehere’ by Vithal Pandya, Blog of P.Kamalakar, 1946 Film Directory, pak.mag site and my notes, with thanks to all)

Another unknown name in the cast is A.Shah. Here is some information on him. An actor who was quite a popular comedian those days was A Shah aka Aziz Shah. He was born in 1910, at Sialkot. He did not have much schooling, except primary education at Lyallpur and at Islamia High School, Lahore. Due to his rich and sweet voice, he used to recite Holy Quran, on farmaish. He wrote poetry also.

He joined Saroj Movietone in 1930, under Mohan Bhavnani as an artiste at Rs.40 p.m. He acted in ‘Shakuntala’-31 and ‘Gul Bakavli’-32. He had to take a 2 year break, due to an illness. Back in Bombay, he worked in the film ‘Fidai Tohid’-34 as a hero. He gave music to the film ‘Gunehgar’-36. He wrote dialogues for ‘Mother India’-38 and ‘Daughters of India’-39. His first comic role was in Ranjit’s ‘Mirza Sahiban’-35. He became famous with his role in Punjabi film ‘Kurmai’-41.

His best role came in ‘Sharada’-42, as Munshi Udharchand Shikarpuri. This was repeated by him in the film ‘Keemat’-46. Some of his 11 films were, ‘Dhandora’-41, ‘Armaan’-42, ‘Sukh Dukh’-42, ‘Kanoon’-43, ‘Sanjog’-43, ‘Geet’-44 and ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’-45, and Padmini-48.After 1948, he stopped acting and wrote lyrics in films like ‘Raat Ki Rani’-49, ‘Namoona’-49 and ‘Ek Teri Nishani’-49. After this he possibly migrated to Pakistan and we have no further information about him anymore. Baburao Patel of Film India magazine was his fan.( Adapted from Film Directory-46 and pak.mag with thanks.)

Today’s song is from the early career of Geeta Roy when she was new, not very well known and with a fresh melodious voice. The song is very sweet. Music is by Ghulam Haider, who was in a hurry to migrate to Pakistan. He was one of the very few popular and successful MDs in undivided India, who went to Pakistan and did not do that well there. Not only that, he suffered from Cancer and died within 2 years of going to Pakistan. This is in contrast to many other MDs, who were ordinary and not so popular in India, became highly successful, popular and famous in Pakistan Some such examples are Nissar Bazmi, Tufail Faruqi, G.A.Chishti (Babaji) etc etc.

The producer, Director and lyricist of this film was Wali Saheb who also migrated to Pakistan soon after, along with his wife Mumtaz Shanti. Just for information, Mumtaz Shanti’s mother was a Hindu named Shanti and father was a Muslim-Mumtaz Shah. That’s how she called herself Mumtaz Shanti.

I am not giving the story of this film, because the story of beautiful queen Padmini and her Jauhar, along with hundreds of other women, to save their honour from the army of Allauddin khilji is very well known.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Aadhaar’ (1945).

This film was made by Geeta Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanlal Desai and this social film had music by SN Tripathi. The lyricist was MA Razi and the film cast was Umakant, Kokila, Yaqub, Shehzadi, Firoza, Ramesh, Usha , Ahmed and many others.

When film making started in India with silent films in the first decade of the last century, the filmmakers faced an unexpected difficulty. The difficulty was in getting actresses for films. No women were ready to act in the films, as it was considered a very low level profession. Dadasaheb Phalke wrote in his reminiscences how he tried to invite even prostitutes to work in the films and how even they refused saying it was a lower job than even being a prostitute !

Sensing an opportunity in this field, many European, Anglo-Indian and Jew girls joined films as actresses. Since the films were silent, their zero knowledge of Hindi or any regional language was not an obstacle. The dialogues were shown as strips of typed sentences on the screen. The girls also had no objection to giving romantic scenes or even kissing on the screen. Some actresses in those days were Ruby Meyers (Sulochana), Marcia Solomon (Vimla), Rachel Sofaer (Aarti Devi), Miss Rose, Iris Gasper (Sabita Devi), Susan Solomon (Firoza), Effie Hippolet (Indira Devi), Bonnie Bird (Lalita Devi), Esther Abraham (Pramila), Renee Smith (Seeta), Beryl Classen (Madhuri), Winnie Stewart (Manorama), Florence Ezekiel (Nadira), Muriel Alexander (Meera) and many others.

In the second part of the second decade i.e. from 1915 onward, some Indian girls from tawaif families also joined and as a result the count of ‘white skin’ girls started diminishing. After the advent of talkie films, speaking Hindi and singing – if needed, became a requirement for the actresses and automatically the Jew, Anglo-Indian and the European girls disappeared from films. Only a few, who learnt Hindi and singing, survived for a few more years, like Sabita Devi, Meera, Pramila, Sulochana, Madhuri and Firoza etc. Those who left early had no problem, but those who continued had to face the competition with the newer and younger local artistes and one by one they too ended their careers. However, not all ended happily. There was one Jew actress whose life in the last part of her career ended pathetically, in penury and she died unsung. We all know of such ends of many actors like Master Shiraz, Master Nissar, Bhudo Advani etc., but the sad story of the once famous actress is not known much. She acted in this film and her name was FIROZA.

Firoza (real name Susan Solomon) was born in a village in Konkan, Maharashtra on 30-7-1905, into a Bene Isareli Jew community. By the time she finished her education, she was proficient in Hebrew, Marathi, Hindi and English. In spite of opposition from family, she started working in silent films and soon became popular. Some of her films also became famous and hits. She continued working in silent films till 1934, when silent films stopped being made. Due to the family’s opposition, she had to leave her house. She stayed in Bombay.

With the advent of talkie films, she naturally entered talkie films, with ‘Noor E Yaman’ (1935), in a small role. She acted in films like ‘Bhikaran’ (1935), ‘Aansuon Ki Duniya’ (1936), ‘Bharat Ke Laal’ (1936), ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ (1937), ‘Dukhiyari’ (1937), ‘Veerbala’ (1938) etc. Due to her success in films, she fell a prey to false promises and dreamt of working in Hollywood films. She wasted 3 years in this and dejected, started working in films again here with ‘Ek Raat’ (1942), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Duniya Diwaani’ (1943), ‘Bhagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Andhi Duniya’ (1943), ‘Din Raat’ (1945), ‘Aadhaar’ (1945), ‘Lal Batti’ (1947), ‘Daulat Ke Liye’ (1947), ‘Haatimtai’ (1947), ‘Dilwaale’ (1948) etc.

She became an alcoholic and a chain smoker. She made the mistake of refusing offers from Bombay Talkies and other big banners. Meanwhile she fell in love with actor Chandra Mohan and wished to marry him, but he became a drunkard and died in 1949. Her financial condition became worse. She did small roles in Marathi and Hindi films. ‘Yasmeen’ (1954) was her last film.

She lost her parents and lived alone in a single room, where she died unnoticed one day in early 70s. She was one of the top 5 Jew actresses, included in the Documentary ‘Shalom Bollywood’ made by Danny Ben-Moshe in 2003. Thus ended a talented artiste !.
[Note – There was another Firoza Begum, wife of music director Kamal Dasgupta. She is different. She was a Bangladeshi singer.]

[Ack: Information culled from ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitare’ by S Tamrakar, ‘The Untold Story of Jews in Indian Cinema’ in Sunday Guardian, ‘Women in Hindi Cinema’ by Bhavna, Jigna and Supriya, theoneminute.com and my notes.]

The lead pair of the film ‘Aadhaar’ was Umakant (Desai) and Kokila. Despite my efforts I could not get any information on this actress. First I thought that she is Nirupa Roy, because the real name of Nirupa Roy was Kokila. But this Kokila has been in films since 1937 when Nirupa Roy was only a 6 year old girl. First film of this Kokila was ‘Meri Bhool’ (1937). She also acted in films like ‘Gentleman Daku’ (1937), ‘Dukhiyari’ (1937) in which she sang 1 song also, ‘Prem Sagar’ (1939), ‘Gareeb Ka Laal’ (1939), ‘Wayda’ (1940), ‘Jagat Mohini’ (1940), ‘Meri Khwahish’ (1941). ‘Aadhaar’ seems to be her last film. She appeared like a flash and disappeared like a comet !

Let us know something about the director Ramanlal Desai. There were 2 directors in the film industry- Ramanlal (Lalbhai) Desai and Ramanlal (Bhimbhai) Desai. Both operated in almost the same period. Luckily Ramanlal Bhimbhai Desai was known as ‘The King of Mythologicals’ and the other Desai directed all types of films. Ramanlal Lalbhai Desai was born on 6-9-1915 at Ahmedabad (some sources indicate different year and place). His father was a station master in the BBCI Railway (Bombay-Baroda and Central India Railway). He was educated in Bombay and he studied up to Inter-Arts. He soon left his studies to work as an assistant cameraman and assistant director for ‘Thief of Baghdad’ (1934). In 1935 he shifted to Ganesh Movietone but then came back to Paramount. He was assistant director in ‘Fairy of the Flute’, ‘Guru Ghantal’, ‘Black Ghost’, ‘Burqawali’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘Vagabond Lover’, ‘Madhur Bansari’ etc. He co-directed films like ‘Patriot’, ‘Darpan’ and ‘Mere Saajan’, in Rex Pictures. He was a good editor and a musician.

He became a full fledged director with ‘Daughter of the Jungle’ (1942), ‘Muhabbat Ki Jeet’ (1943), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Bhagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Rangeela Dost’ (1944), ‘Aadhar’ (1945), ‘Kismat Ka Dhani’ (1946), ‘Jadui Putli’ (1946), ‘Tiger Man’ (1947), ‘Naqali Heera’ (1948), ‘Dhanwale’ (1948), ‘Dilwale’ (1948), ‘Roshni’ (1949), ‘Sangeeta’ (1950), ‘Aab e Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Hum Bhi Kuchh Kam Nahin’ (1958), ‘Minister’ (1959) and ‘Zalim Tera Jawab Nahin’ (1960). He turned to Gujarati films and directed ‘Sole Saaj Singar’ (1977) and ‘Kul Deepak’ (1978). He was working as a Production Supervisor for the film ‘Nastik’ (1954) (credited).

[Thanks to Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for allowing me to use some info used here].

Film ‘Aadhar’ was unique, because it featured 4 artistes falling in the category of ‘same name confusion’ – namely, Ramanlal Desai, Shehzadi, Firoza and Kokila. Today’s song is a duet sung by Geeta Dutt and SN Tripathi – the MD himself.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 82
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 20 August 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6483 Eid milo eid Najma (1943) Movie YIPPEED by now
6484 Eid aayi hai aayi hai eid aayi hai Rashid Dulhan (UR) (1950) Number of songs unknown in this unreleased movie
6485 Bholenath se niraala Gaurinath se niraala Har Har Mahadev(1950) 6 songs covered out of 10

6488 Arziyaan saari main maathe pe likh ke laaya hoon Delhi 6 (2009) 3 songs covered out of 10 by now

It can be observed that three movies (out of six) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago have since been YIPPEEE’D. That leaves us with three movies not yet YIPPEEE’D. One of these movies was an unreleased movie and total number of songs in this movie are not known.

That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (on 20 August 2022).

‘Har Har Mahadev’ (1950) is one such movie.

‘Har Har Mahadev’ was produced and directed by Jayant Desai for Jayant Desai Productions Limited, Bombay. This religious movie had Nirupa Roy (as Uma), Trilok Kapoor, Jeevan (as Narad Muni), Niranjan Sharma, Mishra, Durga Khote, Shanta Kunwar, Kanta Kumari, Heera Sawant, Satyanarayan, Ram Shashtry, Pravin Kumar, Suryakant Shukla, Kusum, Savitri, Nagotkar, dancers Meenaxi and Heera Sawant etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Six songs have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from this film to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Ramesh Shashtri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

The song is picturised on Nirupa Roy, with Trilok Kapoor also present.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This article is the 17100th song post in the blog.
This post also includes the 1500th Hindi lyrics contribution by Sudhir ji.

Blog Day :

5140 Post No. : 17100

We in this blog regularly publish song posts everyday without a fail. The last date when no post appeared in the blog was 25 December 2019 (Blog day number 4177). Today (14 August 2022) is the 5140th day for the blog. So there has been no DOT day for the blog during last 973 days !

When we are this regular, then song posts add up and before we realize, we arrive at the next century mark. The previous century mark was a big occasion when we reached a round figure of 17000 song posts.

Nowadays only one or two songs posts appear in a day whereas more than six songs used to appear daily in the blog ten years ago, as we have been noticing while discussing songs under our Blog Ten Year Challenge series. Even then we reach our centuries fairly regularly. The 17000th song post appeared on 2 June 2022. Today, on 14 august 2022, that is 63 days later, we arrive at the next century song post, namely song post number 17100 !

This is a century song post with some difference. It is the first century post for the blog after the blog became ASAD Bhopali. In other words, it is the first century post after I superannuated from my Railway service and settled down at Bhopal. If I or others thought that the pace of the blog will pick up, that has not happened. In any case, we nowadays are not much concerned about the pace at which we are going. We just ensure that no day should be a DOT date.

The century post is always a special post that showcases a song that is special in one way or the other. All the 170 century songs (yes we have had that many century posts in the blog) have been very special songs. Assuming each of these song to be 3 minutes long, listening to all these songs non stop will require 510 minutes, viz 8 hours 30 minutes ! Assuming someone sets out to listen to all the 17100 songs at the same rate of 3 minutes per song, he will need 51300 minutes, which is 855 hours viz nearly 36 days (non stop round the clock) worth of music !

Regulars have actually listened to all these songs. I, who has published bulk of these song posts have actually listened to all these songs multiple times !

So one can have some rough idea of how much time has gone into the effort of bringing all this collection together at one place. And this is by now an online collaboration of nearly two dozen like minded music lovers who have been putting on enormous amount of time and effort and love into this ongoing online project of collecting and piecing together authentic information about the glorious history of Hindi movie music.

As a result of our collective effort, we have showcased songs from over 4600 movies. More than 1000 singers, more than 800 lyricists and more than 500 music directors are already represented in the blog. 1329 movies have already been YIPPEEE’D.

The above figures may not look very impressive to the uninitiated, but the initiated persons will know that this is perhaps the only place online where all this information is available at one place. For instance, many of the YIPPEEE’D movies had songs that are rare songs. Those missing songs have been specially located and uploaded by us (more specifically by Sudhir Ji). Similarly a few of the special songs (including century songs) were special songs that were uploaded for the first time online while those special posts were published.

During the process of our posts, We found songs that were incorrectly credited in HFGK. we have come across songs that did not find mention in HFGK. We also had occasions when new information about songs and artists were received from comments made by knowledgeable sources. Sometimes even close relatives of the artists commented on our posts and shared invaluable information with us.

All the above facts are extremely satisfying to us who are associated with the blog in various capacities. We feel that we in our own small ways, are contributing our mite to human knowledge . With time, our contribution may find more appreciation, I am sure of it.

I started thinking about a song for the occasion only at the last moment which is my wont these days. I finally zeroed in on this song from ‘Nav Durga’ (1953).

‘Nav Durga’ was produced by Homi Wadia and directed by Babubhai Mistri for Basant Pictures Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Mahipal, SN Tripathi, Sulochana Chatterji, Amarnath, Agha Shapur, Raja Sandow etc. in it. The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the blog so far.

The song being discussed is sung by two sisters. We have hundreds of songs sung by Mangeshkar sisters, but there were other sisters too in HFM. But duets sung by these sisters are few and far between. Suman Kalyanpur (nee Hemadi) has sung a few duets with her sisters, such as Shyama Chittar (nee Hemadi). Geeta Dutt too had a sister called Laxmi Roy, but her sister sang very few songs before vanishing from the HFM after her marriage.

The song under discussion is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy) and Laxmi Roy. Ramesh Chandra Pandey is the lyricist. Music is composed by SN Tripathi. This is a joyous song. Geeta Dutt sings initial stanzas. Laxmi Roy’s voice appears towards the later half of the song.

Only audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement that is providing us with the energy to drive this musical bandwagon on and on. Let this musical bandwagon roll on and on for many more centuries of songs.

Today’s song is from the film Firdaus-1953.

I have not seen this film and I do not know its story either. From what I read somewhere about this film, it seems to be a story of a newly married couple – Indra and Madhu, who get separated on their first night itself. The film has the background of India’s Partition.

1953 was a period just about 6 years after the Partition turmoil and those who suffered from it directly were still in the process of setting their lives in order. While people had not forgotten the pain of partition, no one wanted to even think again about that period. Therefore films made with such stories and background did not fare so well. While about 10 to 15 % of the population had actually suffered during Partition, for all others these were only stories, not knowing its devastation and the seriousness.

Most of the country had left the partition behind and looked forward to development and prosperity. Hindi film industry too had recovered from the shake up and was on the tracks once again.However, even in the films made now it reflected the changing society of India. Films were made on Mythology, Joint family benefits, Musical Comedies. It was now the turn of the South to replace the East in terms of winning the Hindi markets. However, compared to the Bangla artistes, not many southern artistes-especially the males- joined Hindi films. Mainly actresses came from south to Hindi films.

1953 established the practice of ” Guest Artistes” in Hindi films, starting from the film ‘ Aabshaar ‘ aka Waterfall, decisively. RK films and Raj Kapoor surged forward with films and Raj- Nargis paired with ‘ Aah ‘. Milestone and Hit films like Anarkali, Baaz, Boot Polish, Dil-E-Nadaan, Do Bigha Zameen, Fareb, Footpath, Jhanjhar, Jhansi ki Rani (First Indian Technicolour film), Ladki, Mayurpankh, Patita, Shikast, Teen Batti Char Raasta etc. entertained the audience, besides the Mythologicals, Historicals (distorticals ?), action and stunt films and family dramas.

Film Firdaus-53 was made by New premier Films and it was directed by Vasant Joglekar. It was produced by M.S.Ahluwalia. Music was composed by Roshan and Robin Chatterjee and the cast was Geeta Bali, Anup Kumar, Omprakash, Badriprashad, Vasant Thengdi, Randhir etc etc.

Everyone in this world has friends. Some are social friends, some are professional friends, few are Fb and WA friends. The best category is where the childhood friendship continues till old age and also a friendship which grows late in life but is a heartfelt one. One such friendship was famous in the film industry in the 50’s decade. Our film industry is full of ungrateful people. There is nothing like true friendship here. So called friends do not hesitate to cut the throat of others for selfish purposes. There are hundreds of such instances here. However for every rule there is an exception and there was ONE friendship which was used as an example here. That is the friendship of Vasant Joglekar and Ashok Kumar. They were true friends and their friendship ended only when Joglekar died.

Vasant Joglekar, actor-by compulsion and producer/Director-by choice was born on the Christmas day, 25th September 1914 at Nagpur. He started his filmi career as asstt. to Master Vinayak in 1942. In the struggling days he met Ashok Kumar and they became friends forever.

starting with Aap ki seva mein-47,in which Lata Mangeshkar sang her first Hindi film solo, Joglekar produced 10 films and directed 20 films ( 11 Hindi and 9 Marathi). In one of the Marathi films directed by this young man-Vasant Joglekar, sctress Sumati Gupte was acting in it. They fell in love and soon got married in 1943. Sumati became Sumati Gupte Joglekar. In due course, the couple had 3 daughters- Meera, Chanda and Madhushri.
In almost all his films Ashok Kumar was a fixture. There was a time when Ashok kumar was involved in 30 films at one time,still the 31st film was that of Joglekar. The only condition Dadamuni used to put was that Joglekar’s wife, actress/housewife Sumati Gupte Joglekar should provide him food Tiffin cooked by her own hands, at the shooting place ! . He was very fond of her cooking. No wonder, Sumati was a CKP by birth-a fish eater and the Bangali babu liked Fish dishes very much !

Joglekar’s Filmography as a Director in Hindi films – Aap ki sewa mein-47, Adalat-48, Nand Kishore-51, Jeet Kiski-52, Firdaus-53, Samaj-54, Karigar-58, Aanchal-60, Aaj aur kal-63, Ek Kali Muskayee-68 and last film Prarthana-69.

Vasant Joglekar tried to promote his daughter Meera as a Heroine in Hindi films, with the film Ek Kali Muskayee-68. However, she was not successful and the film was a flop.

Vasant Joglekar died on 13-1-1993.

Even in this film, Firdaus-53, Ashok kumar was present as a Guest artiste, though not in the cast. Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Written by D N Madhok, the music was by Robin Chatterjee. He was born on 8-1-1914, at Calcutta. His name is not too well known to Hindi film lovers, though he was very famous in Bengal, where he composed several NFS and film songs. For many years he assisted Anupam Ghatak,MD. He even sang in the chorus for New Theatre’s film Adhikar-1938. However he was not so successful in Hindi films.

His first Hindi film was Rajlakshmi-1945, wherein he gave the first opportunity to Talat Mahmood to sing a Hindi film song. Till then he was singing Bangla NFS and film songs with the name Tapan kumar. His next film was Tum aur main-1946 which had very good songs by kanan Devi. Then came Voh Dono-1947 and here Sandhya Mukherjee gave good songs. Robin Chatterjee gave music to 14 Hindi films,namely – Rajlakshmi-45, Tum aur main-46, Voh Dono-47, Sabyasachi-48,Ratnadeep-51, Pehli Shadi-53, Firdaus-53, Shobha-54, Majboori-54, Africa-54, Dhake ki malmal-56, Miss Toofan mail-58, Police Station-59 and Chimney ka Dhuvan-1973…this was a much delayed film. He also gave music to a Bhojpuri film- Saiya se kar le milanwa-1966.

Robin Chatterjee died on 2-4-1976 at Bombay at the age of just 62 years.

There is a strange and unusual name in the cast – Vasant Thengadi. Vasant Thengadi was born on 11-1-1910 at Nagpur. He was son of Congress leader Dhaniram Thengadi. Vasant had his education in Poona. He could not join the Army, because of his father’s political connections. He had to leave his Engineering college after father’s death. Being very handsome,tall and with good physique, he started working in Marathi dramas and films. He started his Hindi work with the film Dhuandhar-35. ( This was also the Debut film for Leela Chitnis and Meera Alexander). He started doing Villain roles and became popular and famous. Besides Marathi films, his Hindi films were Taramati-45, Phir bhi apna hai-46, Mera Ladka-38, Din Raat-45, Ten o clock-42 etc. Later he also worked as assistant director to Raja Nene.

His wife Kusum Thengdi and her sister Ranjana were also actresses. Ranjana was Dilip Kumar’s Heroine, in the film Milan-1946.

Today’s song is a rare song. You will like this song.

Lyrics

Chaandni raat hai
Chaandni raat hai

Chaandni raat hai
Chaandni raat hai
Chaandni raat hai
Chaandni raat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai

chaandni raat hai

chhup ja chanda

chhup ja chanda

ek dooje ko ankhiyaan na maaro
ek dooje ko ankhiyaan na maaro
aaj balam ji se meri mulaakat hai
chandani raat hai
aaj balam ji se meri mulaakaat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai

chhoti chhoti lahren uthhen nadiya ke paani mein
chhoti chhoti lahren uththen nadiya ke paani mein
jaise armaan uthhe uthhti jawaani mein
jaise armaan uthhe uthhti jawaani mein
unse na kahiyo chanda teri meri baat hai
chaandni raat hai
unse na kahiyo chanda
teri meri baat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
aise mein aake milo humse to kya baat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
chaandni raat hai
