Today’s song is from the film Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat-1960.

This was a Stunt film, produced by Aspy Irani for his own banner – Super Pictures, Bombay. The film was directed by Zahoor Ahmed. The music was by Khayyam. He was assisted by Bipin and Mehboob. This Bipin was a part of Bipin-Babul duo, who gave music to 12 films together as a team. After leaving Khayyam, Bipin assisted Madan Mohan, where Babul was already an assistant. They joined hands and made a pair of Composers as Bipin-Babul.

Film Bambai ki Billi was an interesting film.This was actually the 3rd film with this title. The history of this film is very amusing..The first film was ‘ The Wild Cat of Bombay aka Bambai ki Billi’ – a Silent film made by Imperial films co. in 1927. Their famous actress-heroine Sulochana (Ruby Meyers) was the film’s Heroine and her Hero was one Jamshed. This film was directed by a novice Mohan Bhavnani, who became a big name in later years.

After Talkie films started, Imperial began Talkie remakes of their famous and popular Silent films and in 1936, Imperial made Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat of Bombay. The heroine was the same-Sulochana, but this time the Hero was different- Dinshaw Billimorea. Her earlier film Hero Jamshed was also in this film, but did a side supporting role. This time the film was directed by a veteran Nandlal Jaswantlal.(He became a famous director with films like Nagin and Anarkali in the 50s.). Nandlal had already done a Talkie remake of Indira, BA-a popular silent film as Imperial’s Indira MA. This was with Sulochana and D.Billimoria. Bambai ki Billi-36 was a social film,in which Sulochana had done 8 different roles. The roles were Policeman,Gardener, Gambler, Beggar, Hyderabadi gentleman, Banana Seller, a street urchin and an European Blonde girl. By the way, Sulochana is the only actress in Hindi film world, who acted in 4 remake films having same titles and doing the same roles in all films-silent and Talkie. Her films were Madhuri, Indira MA, Bambai ki Billi and Anarkali.

Besides the interesting history of this film title, the film also boasts of a Director, who was the only person in Hindi film industry who disappeared mysteriously – for ever. The name is Aspy Irani. Film was directed by Aspi Irani,who was basically famous for stunt and C grade films. Aspy Irani was an important director from the early films. His full name was ASPANDIAR HORMUSJI IRANI. He was born in the Parsi colony, Panch Gardens in Dadar, Bombay on 8-10-1911. He started work in the film industry after he completed his secondary schooling and as all Parsis are, due to his hard work, he soon attained a top rank in the Industry. He started directing films from 1936,the early Talkie stage, when the influence of Parsi Theatre, fantasies and dramas on folklore was the staple of stunt films. All such films had a basic structure and with a little changes here and there new films hit the screens.

There was a fixed audience for such films, but as the time went by, slowly the taste of the audience changed. However Aspi Irani continued with his style till the end. He did direct few social films also but the handling of social films had a clear stamp of Aspi’s direction.

He must have directed about 50-55 films till the early 80s. Some of his films were, Naya paisa, qaidi no.911,Barood,Shabnam,Badal etc. He was married to actress Husn Bano ( daughter of actress Shareefa).

On a fine morning on 23rd November 1986,Aspi left his home in the morning for work and never ever returned. No one knows what happened to him. Since then there was no trace of this man and officially he was declared ‘missing since 23-11-1986′. What an end to a legend !

The film cast was Kumkum, Sudhir, Mukri, Nazima, TunTun, Chanda Bai, Nazir Kashmiri, Ashalata etc. etc. The Hero of the film was Sudhir – who died about 7 years ago. He was a small time villain in many big films like Deewar etc. This was his First film as a hero.

Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria (13-4-1931 to 12 May 2014) aka Sudhir was a Bollywood film actor. He was best known for his role in the film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan. He acted in 226 films in a career spanning from 1962 to 2009. He was one of Bollywood’s best known villains from the 1970s through the 1990s.

His first film was Taxi Driver-1954. One gets to see his name appear first time as a male lead in the 1960 Sheikh Mukhtar film ‘Baarood’. And then again in the same year, as the male lead in the film ‘Bambai Ki Billi’. Both films have Kumkum paired opposite to him. In 1961 came the somewhat more appreciated ‘Umar Qaid’, again a Sheikh Mukhtar film, in which Sudhir is paired opposite to a very young Nazima.

In an effort to break into the next level of films, maybe, Sudhir started to work in side roles. He acted in prem patra starring sadhna and shashi kapoor 1962 as Subhash.He appeared in Apna Ghar Apni Kahani (Pyas) opposite Mumtaz in 1968, singing “Jigar me dard kaisa ishko ulfat to nhi kahate” and ‘main ye sochkar uske dar se utha tha’ (Hakeekat), ‘mujhe raat din ye khayal hai’ and ‘mere dil pe andheri sa chhan laga’ from Ek Phool Ek Bhool’.

He often played the second-in-command sidekick to villains Ajit, Prem Nath and Pran, a torturous police inspector, or a sleazy man. He was most known for his shrill voice, long moustache and sideburns. He starred in at least a dozen Amitabh Bachchan movies, such as Deewaar, Kaalia, Majboor, Sharaabi, Satte Pe Satta, Dostana, Shaan and Lal Baadshah.

The 1969 film ‘Mahal’ brought Sudhir in touch with Dev Anand, and thence started an association that would last a lifetime. Starting with ‘Gambler’(1971), Sudhir has appeared in almost every Dev Anand film, whether produced by Navketan or by any other production banner.

Other notable appearances included Feroz Khan’s 1974 hit Khote Sikkay, its sequel Kachche Heere, Dharmatma, as well as Mera Gaon Mera Desh, and roles of a handicapped thief in Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), as police inspector (Special Appearances) in Subhash Ghai’s Meri Jung (1985) and in the Shah Rukh Khan-starring Baadshah (1999). His last film appearances were in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) and Victoria House (2009). He was also filmmaker Milan Luthria’s paternal uncle. He died on 12 May 2014 at the age of 70. He had long been suffering from a lung infection. (based on information from wiki and an article of Sudhir ji).

The film had only 7 songs. This was a major change in the HFM. Initially, people had a fascination for film songs and hence in the early cinema of the 30’s average number of songs used to be 15 to 20 songs. In the 40s the number came down to about 10 to 12 songs and in the 50’s the number was between 6 to 8 songs. All the 7 songs of this film were written by Hasarat Jaipuri. Two songs are already covered. this will be the third song today.

All the 7 songs were good. The film was a C grade film , but the Music Director was an A grade composer. Enjoy this Geeta Dutt solo song……


Song-Dildaar tu hai mera pyaar tu hai (Bambai Ka Billi)(1960) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Khayyam

Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (03)
———————————–

My comment on the 900th song post of Geeta Dutt’s songs :

Congratulations on completing 900 songs of Geeta Dutt. Out of the 500 plus songs that remain to covered in the blog, there are many which sound so beautiful. I have made a short list of her duets and solos yet to be posted and it is difficult to decide on one. In fact I wrote down the lyrics of two such song over the weekend.

Like Husnlal-Bhagatram’s songs, I find it difficult to move past an unheard song by Geeta Dutt. Somehow she captivates the listener on first hearing. A truly gifted and versatile artist.

About the diction and singing the words correctly, also she is almost perfect. A case in point is this two version -Geeta and one small Rafi version ‘Lori’ :

https://atulsongaday.me/2020/03/11/so-jaa-re-so-jaa-mere-laal/

This series is about solos and duets of Geeta Dutt, so here is a wonderous soulful solo. If somebody could sound somewhere in between sad and happy, Geeta Dutt would be it. She sounds spirited too at the same time. The moment I heard it for the first time, I wanted to write a post for it.

I have been listening to the song of the previous post too, and keep wondering how that one remained unknown all these decades. While the Talat Mehmood solo from ‘Chhaya’ 1961, having the same tune is a very well-known song.

And now I am thinking, if the tune of this solo also is sounding more familiar than it should. I am not able to pin point if there is another song with similar beat, especially the‘gaaye jaa aa, kuchh gaaye jaa’ bit.

In my previous post I had billed the duets of Geeta dutt with various singers among the posted songs, at below 350. But they would be more than 350. This blog has 521 solos by her posted.

The first solo in this series is the 7th song from the 1949 film “Karwat”. The music director is Hansraj Behl and lyricist is Saifuddin Saif. Present tally of these two in the blog:

Artist Songs posted Total songs
Hansraj Behl 260 62 movies(538)
Saifuddin Saif 1

So, this one is only the second song penned by Saifuddin Saif in the blog. His first song is also from the same movie, so this Poet/lyricist could be a one movie wonder.

Six songs of Karwat(1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date posted
Chanda baadal mein baadal mein mukh le chhipa 2 November 2012
Nigaahen milaane milaane ko jee chaahta hai Multiple version song 29 November 2013
Tod ghulaami ki zanjeeren jaage hain insaan 15 August 205
Ek rog laga baithhi main 17 July 2016
Chal diye munh pher kar 28 November 2017

This song is significant for it must have set the tone for the famous club, cabaret, mischievous and teasing songs to come, composed by Music Directors like O P Nayyar and S D Burman and sung by Geeta Dutt. This song too is a gem of a discovery.


Song-Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar saaz uthha le(Karwat)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Saifuddin Saif, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar
saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa
raaten badi anokhi
yeh din bahot niraale
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

kyun chaand chakor se door
ghataa mein phire akelaa aa
yeh mast jawaani
koyi din ka melaa
aa kisi se aankh milaa le
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

yeh mast hawaayen kehti hain
milne ki kahaani ee ee
rut beet na jaaye
pyaasi hai jawaani
ik duniyaa nayi basaa le
jhoom kar saaz utthaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

mehek mehek kar
kali kali ko
phool pukaare ae ae
mastaana hawaa mein
hanste hain sitaare
ab dil ko kaun sambhaale
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

Today 23rd November’2020 is ninetieth birth anniversary of singer Geeta Dutt (born on 23rd November’1930).

She passed away on 20th July 1972 at the age of forty-one only. Reading her life story stirs the heart even today, and the Hindi Film Industry and Hindi Film Music will always feel sad for losing her so early.

Geeta Dutt was one of the legendary singers of yesteryears and sang many for Hindi film, Bengali films. Also, she sang many non-filmy Hindi and Bengali songs.

I will not go into her detailed biography or whatever has been written about her on this blog earlier. And, also, I will not mention her songs which are my favorite and those I like very much. That will be a long list. Today I would only like to pay my tributes to her with a song from an unreleased movie ‘Hamraaz’.

This movie is said to be made somewhere in between ‘1941-1950’.

I had come across songs of this movie in 2014 and had then shared fours songs from this movie to our editors then. At that time the year of this movie was mentioned as ‘1950’ on some links and ‘1940’ on others so it was not clear.

However, somehow the movie remains still to be launched on the blog in the ‘rush’ of other priorities.

When I had initially shared the songs from this movie, I was not having its detailed information, but now with the help of HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) we can have this brief about this movie.

HFGK Vol-II 91941-1950) lists this movie as ‘Un-released’ movie of ‘1941-1950’.

On page number 607 – Appendix-1 Movie number 1214 this movie is mentioned as presented by ‘Rahnuma Pictures’.
However, its star cast and director is not mentioned. Music director is mentioned as Shankar Lal.
Lyricist names are mentioned as Shyam Hindi and Kamran Momin.
The list mentions total eight songs in this movie.

S. No Song Title Lyricist
01 Ga re manwaa gaa Shyam Hindi
02 Ghoonghat mein sharmaaye dulhaniya Kamran Momin
03 Baat kuchh aisi wah hamse kah gaye Shyam Hindi
4 Cham cham chamken taare Shyam Hindi
05 In do matwaale nainon mein
06 Aabaad hai saraa jahaan Shyam Hindi
07 Khushi chaaron taraf chhaayi Shyam Hindi
08 Aa jaa papeehe geet sunaa re Kamran Momin

Some links of the songs shared earlier are fortunately available but for one song that I shared the link is no longer available now.

As mentioned above today we will listen to a song sung by Geeta Dutt, written by Kamran Momin and composed by Shankar Lal.

With this song the movie ‘Hamraaz (UR)-1941-1950 makes its debut on the blog and joins its ‘ham-naam’ ‘Hamraaz-1968’ 😊 on the blog.

Remembering Geeta Dutt. Let us now listen to the song of today…


Song-Aa jaa papeehe geet suna de (Hamraaz)(UR)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Kamran Momin, MD-Shankar Lal

Lyrics

aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa
aa ja papeehe
geet sunaa re
ro ro birhan rain guzaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa

yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
hook uthhe man tadpaa jaaye
neer bahaaye nain bechaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

saajan bairee saara zamaana
saajan bairee saara zamaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
aise mein tum bhool na jaana
thhaame jigar ginti hoon sitaare
aa ja aa
aa ja aa aa aa
aa jaa

jeewan naiyya dagmag dole
jeewan naiyya dagmag dole …

Welcome all to this post where once again I am taking you back to the ‘melodious decade’ or ‘golden era’ years of 1951-1960.

We have this movie ‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ launched on the blog on 19.10.2016 with its song ‘sun le zameen aasmaan ke khuda’ sung by Geeta Dutt.
.
‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ was directed by Pyare Lal for ‘Hind Pictures, Bombay’.

Pyare Lal was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had Chitra, Shah Agha, Hiralal, Indira, Sheikh, Neelofar, Jilani, Maqbul, Fakeer Muhammad, Mohini, Arvind Kumar, Razia, Habib, Kailash, Tiwari Cooper, Altaf, Baby Parveen and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.03.1959.

This movie had seven songs written by Khawar Zaman and composed to music by Jimmy.

As per HFGK Vol-III the songs from this movie are as listed below;

S. No. Song Title Singer Posted on
01 Aayi hoon dar pe tere ban ke sawaali (Part-1) Geeta Dutt
02 Loot le loot le loot le duniya ke maze… chaandi jaise din hain tere sone jaisi raatein
03 Loot le loot le loot le duniya ke maze…Pagley phir na aayengi ye mastibhari bahaarein
04 Maula ab to sun… sun le zameen aasmaan ke khuda Geeta Dutt 19.10.2016
05 Sun le zameen ke aasmaan ke khuda, sun le arey do jahaan ke khuda Geeta Dutt 19.10.2016
06 Aayi hoon dar pe tere ban ke sawaali (Part-2) Geeta Dutt
07 Maulaa ki rahmat se hogi har mushqil aasaan Khan Mastana

While posting the first song from this movie Atul ji had mentioned that

“HFGK mentions two songs (s n. 4 and 5) with similar lyrics but my feeling is that the two songs, going by the lyrics, could be just one song,”

I would like to mention the same for song numbers (2) & (3), that this could be one song together or else we are missing one stanza starting from ‘chaandi jaise din hain tere sone jaisi raatein’ because in today’s song we have one stanza before this stanza ‘pagley phir na aayengi ye mastibhari bahaarein’ and thereafter including this ‘pagley phir na aayengi’ it seems to be almost a full song. So, I guess song number 2 & 3 is one song together.

Also, HFGK did not mention the singer name for the above two songs. However, after listening the voices anybody can identify the singer. All links also identify the singer which is not difficult.

Let us now enjoy today’s song and add one more song to the tally of ‘Nek Khatoon-1959’ in the blog.

I hope you will like this song…

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

dil dene se pehle
hoy is duniya ke rang roop hain tere liye
loot le
loot le duniya ke maze
duniya ke maze

pal do pal rehta hai pagle roop rang ka mela
aankh jhapakte hi chal dega ye mausam albela
hoy is duniya ke rang roop hain tere liye ae
loot le
loot le duniya ke maze

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 91
———————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge 2010-2020’. Considering that we have already now entered into the ninetees, let us see if this ‘ten-year challenge for the year ‘2010-2020’ gets to a first ‘hundred’ in this category or not? It all depends upon the movies who started their journey on the blog in ‘2010’ (now for November -remaining days, and the next month December only) and are yet to all their songs posted or they are ‘un-Yippeee’ed’ so far 😊

Well today we have two movies due for a song in this challenge viz. ‘Shree Ganesh Mahima-1950’ and ‘Roopkumari-1956’.

Ten years back on this day i.e. 12th November 2010 saw as many as five songs posted on the blog. Here is the list of these songs, their movies and the status of these movies on the blog;

Song Title Movie & Year Status of songs of the movie on the blog
Ulfat ke jaadoo ka dil mein asar hai Sangram-1950 All Songs covered
Sakhi mera man naache mera tan naache Shri Ganesh Mahimaa-1950 04 of 11 songs posted

Main to tere haseen khayaalon mein kho gayaa Sangram-1965 All Songs covered
Raju ka hai ek khwaab Raja Saahab-1969 All Songs covered

‘Shri Ganesh Mahima-1950’ (aka ‘Shri Krishna Vivaah) was directed by Homi Wadia for ‘Basant Pictures, Bombay’.
It was a mythological movie having star cast as Meena Kumari, Mahipal, S.N. Tripathi, Moolchand, Dalpat, Amarnath and others.

This movie had eleven songs written by Anjum Jaipuri and Ramesh Pande. Music for this movie was composed by S.N. Tripathi.

HFGK (Vol-II, 1941-1950) mentions the song titles of these eleven songs as per following order, however it mentioned the singer name for only four songs and i.e. of Geeta Roy (Dutt) and lyricist name is mentioned only for one song (sakhi ri mera man naache, mera tan naache).

Our in-house encyclopaedia respected Arun Kumar ji described the story of this movie in his post Hey Ganesh Jai Ganesh which I am reproducing below;

He has also mentioned that

“Although the title of the film was about Ganesha, most of the film centred around Lord Shri Krishna”.

The story of the film was-

Great and Miraculous power are attributed to Shri Ganesh the benefactor of mortals as well as the immortals. Such a benign being was once laughted at by Chandra only to be cursed by him. Realising his folly Chandra begged her forgivenness and the curse was modified by the merciful divinity to be effective only on the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. He ordained that anybody looking at the moon on that day will be a victim of false accusations. It was on such a day that Shri Krishna unwittingly looked at the moon and had to suffer the indignity of being falsely accused of theft of Syamantak Mani. This jewel was acquired by Satrajit, one of the Yadavas as a boon from God Sun. Shri Krishna had sent Narad to Satrajit expressing his desire to possess the Mani. The events took such a turn that there was circumstantial evidence against Shri Krishna who happened to be at the Chambers of Satrajit’s daughter Satyabhama, devotee of Lord Krishna on the night prior to Satrajits losing the Mani. Shri Krishna was shocked at such allegation made by Satrajit and Shatadhanva (Another Yadava) who had been promised by Satrajit the hand of his daughter Satyabhama.

Shri Krishna took upon himself to find out the jewel and redeem it to its rightful owner only to clear himself of the allegation. A search party was organised which came across the dead body of Prasain, a carcass of lion and also the foot-prints of a bear blazing a new trail which when followed led the party to a cave. Shri Krishna went inside the cave telling the followers to wait at the cave entrance for seven days and if he did not return by then, to go back to Dwarka. Inside the cave Shri Krishna found the Syamantak Mani and also Jambuwanti, the daughter of the powerful bear king Jambuwant. There ensued a fight between Shri Krishna and Jambuwant lasting for twenty-one days. The people at the entrance of the cave returned as per instruction after the seventh day. The duration of this fight gave Shatadhanva a real chance for villainy. He puts in an all over effort to win the hand of Satyabhama who would marry none but Shri Krishna. Jambuwant after losing the battle gave away his daughter in marriage and Syamantak Mani as dowry to Shri Krishna.

Coming to Dwarka, Shri Krishna returned the jewel to its rightful owner, Satrajit repented and made amends by giving away his daughter to Shri Krishna in marriage. Shatadhanva came to know of this alliance and made short work of his unsuspecting father Satrajit and decamped with the Mani. Shri Krishna brought justice to the evil doer and the villain Shatachanva fell a victim to his famous Sudershana Chakra.

Arun Kumar ji has written two more posts with songs of this movie and they are;
Surya dev Dinesh hey and Taaron ke palne mein jhoole chaand hamaaraa ho.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie sung by Geeta Dutt (Geeta Roy then).
This lovely melodious song is composed by S.N. Tripathi and it is performed on screen by Meena Kumari.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song …

Blog Day :

4489 Post No. : 16013

I have mentioned in one of my earlier post here that these days I am looking for movies where only one song has been posted so far. In my daily browsing of the blog while I have already noted some movies, new surprises keep coming e.g. the time-lag between posting of the first song of the movie and thereafter posting of the second song. While we can understand a couple of year time-lag is considerable some have to wait for their second song almost more than five to six years or even ten years as we have seen during posting of ‘blog ten-year challenge song’. Well, if that was not enough, I have found a movie with a song posted in 2008 and still waiting for its second song to be posted on the blog. 😊

In today’s case the movie is ‘Mordhwaj-1952’ and one of its song, namely dagmag dagmag doley naiyya… has been posted on 02.06.2014.

Today we will listen to a lovely melodious song from this movie. This song took almost seven years to get posted after it was noted down. 😊

‘Mordhwaj-1952’ alias ‘Raja Mordhwaj’ (as mentioned in HFGK Vol.III-1951-1960) was directed by Balwant Bhatt for ‘Nav Anand Chitra, Bombay’. It was produced by Mangalanand Gautam and it was passed by Censor Board on 27.10.1952.

This movie had Durga Khote, Prem Adeeb, Ram Singh, Tiwari, Shashi Kapoor, Manju, Nand Kishore, Babu Raje, Urvashi, Raj Adeeb, Leela Mishra, Y.N. Joshi, Sushila, Bindu, Neeru and others.

Music for this movie was composed by Narayan Dutta and all the eight songs this movie has were penned by Bharat Vyas.

Our respected Arun Kumar ji has mentioned in detail about the music director, director and stars of this movie while presenting the first song from this movie viz. dagmag dagmag doley naiyya.

I am presenting herewith details of the songs of this movie as given below;

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from a film with an unusual story-Ferry-1954.

The story of the film was written by Dhruv Chatterjee, dialogues were by Akhtar Ul Imaan and the screenplay was done by the Producer and Director of the film – Hemen Gupta. His entire family was involved in this film. Wife Ratna Gupta sang a song in the film and his daughter Baby Bula acted in the film. This Baby Bula became Archana, when she grew up to be a Heroine in her debut film Umang-70. Next film was Buddha Mil Gaya-71 and her third and last film was Anokha Daan-72. After this she left films, married her classmate Yogesh Motwani and settled in life. For some time, she was doing Fabric business also.

The lead pair of this film was Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. At this time, Dev was still uncertain as to what type of roles he fits into. His own wish was to be a Romantic Hero and from the film Munimji-55 onwards, his career really took off as a Romantic hero – an image he desperately (and later on pathetically) tried to preserve in his films. When others stopped giving him films,he started producing and directing his own films, acting in it the same way he did, when he was young.

Dev Anand acted in 116 films, directed 19 films, sang in 4 films and even wrote 2 songs in film ‘Mr. Prime Minister’-2005. Prior to film Ferry-54, his films were of a variety of subjects, from musical to comedy to serious types. In the film Zalzala-52, he died on screen for the first time. The last time he died on screen was in the film Guide-65. He never liked to die on screen. It did not fit into his scheme of future planning to become a Romantic Hero. Film Tamasha-52 was a sort of comedy film and Ferry -54 was still a different type of role.

The film was a story of a widower Zamindar, Vikas (Dev), who also worked as a Government officer in a village. He has a young child-Raju (Master Babu, who became Ritesh Kumar as a grown up actor and also married actress Maushumi Chatterjee. He was the son of Hemant Kumar), who is curious about his mother. His father has told him that she has gone beyond the river and lives in a big white palace. The child hopes that one day his mother will surely come back to him. So, he, along with his next door friend Minu (Baby Bula) goes to the River bank every day, expecting his mother to arrive in the Ferry some day.

Once when Vikas has gone to the city for work, a young girl is found in the river. She is unconscious. Villagers bring her to the nearest house of Vikas. Doctor is called. The girl survives. She is Juhi-a tawayaf’s daughter (Geeta Bali). She stays in that house. The boy Raju develops a bond with her and she too starts loving the boy. However the Chachi of Vikas, who looks after the household does not like it. When Vikas comes back, he learns everything. When she tells her story he understands that she was kidnapped as a baby and sold to the tawaif – Munnibai (Chand Burke). Munnibai tries to sell her to customers. To avoid further trouble, Juhi jumps into the river.

Due to the opposition of Chachi and the villagers, Juhi is asked to leave the house. She goes to the river to wait for the Ferry. Raju falls sick and Vikas too is uneasy. He has also developed an affinity for her. He takes Raju and rushes to the river in time to stop Juhi from boarding it . They come back to the house. Vikas finally decides to marry Juhi and Raju also gets his mother. Happy ending.

Film Ferry was released first in Bombay at the Swastik cinema on 8-10-1954 and it ran only for 7 weeks. The All India response was also lukewarm. When I saw this film in Hyderabad in late October, I had liked it, but felt that the end was too hastily wound up. Maybe the length was already too much. The film had music by Hemant kumar. Like all Bangla composers, Hemant also had a ” Maajhee” song in this film (they could never resist the temptation if a river is in the film). There was a child song ( another weak point of HK), by baby Bula and Master Babu. 2 solos by Geeta Dutt and 1 by Ratna Gupta. One 2 part Mujra song by Laxmi Shankar. In addition a record for Sitar and Sarod playing was also issued. Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and his protege Nikhil Bannerjee had played them.

Director Hemen Gupta’s name will be remembered for a long time in Hindi film history for two films that he directed. One was the early era patriotic film “Anandmath”-52,based on the novel of Bankim babu,in which Hemen Gupta himself, Pradeep kumar and Hemant kumar made their debuts in Hindi films. The second film was Kabuliwala – 61, which won acclaim and a National Award too. This movie was a based on Gurudev Rabibdranath Tagore’s novel of the same name.

I was looking for information on Hemen Gupta ,but found it very difficult. As I have already said recently, getting information about southern and Bengali artistes in English, is a difficult task. When I was drawing a blank from all sources, Lady Luck smiled on me. Unexpectedly, one of my friends from the US, sent me a PDF of Hemen Gupta’s Biography and the Filmography, prepared by his own son Jayant Gupta. What a coincidence ! I was listening to a duet of Uma Devi and S.D.Batish for the film Taaksaal-56 and at the same time received most unexpectedly the authentic information on its director Hemen Gupta !!

Although the original PDF contains many pages, I have abridged and edited this Biography to suit this article. My sincere thanks to shri Jayant Guptaji and shri Salim Shah ji for this.

Hemen Gupta was born on 21-3-1912,in a middle class family in Rajasthan. His Grandfather shri Nabakumar Gupta was a big Zamindar in Dacca. Hemen’s early school and college education was done in Dacca. He joined an active political career in 1926 as a Congress worker and a freedom fighter. He was arrested in 1931 and was in jail till 1938. In the jail, he studied and completed his Master’s degree in History with Honours. He also read many books on film making and was interested in it. When he was released he joined New Theatres. He wanted to make Patriotic films but till 1946 he could not do so. He made the film Bhuli Nai in Bangla-a fiercely patriotic film which was rejected by the censors. After many obstacles it got released. He also made another patriotic film in Bangle ’42’. Both films gave him name and fame.

Shashadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan in Bombay called him with an attractive offer and Hemen came to Bombay. He wrote the screenplay and directed the film “Anandmath”-52. He took Pradeep Kumar as a Hero and Hemanta Kumar as MD- his old colleagues in Calcutta. For all the three it was a debut in Hindi films. In 1953 he started his own banner “Film trust of India”and made “Ferry”-54, a love story with Dev Anand and Geeta Bali. Again Hemanta Kumar was the MD. Hemant Kumar’s young son Ritesh played a small role in this film (Later Ritesh married the famous actress Maushami Chatterjee). Ratna Gupta,Hemen’s wife, sang songs in this film. His last film under Hemen Gupta Productions was Taaksaal-56. Meanwhile he directed Meenar in 1954.

He was a staunch nationalist and idealist who wanted to make artistic films,but the producers,distributors and the financiers did not allow him that freedom. He felt suffocated. He was fed up with the commercialism in film making and he had a difficulty in coping up with the market demands. In 1961 he directed “Kabuliwala”and won accolades and a National Award too. His last film was “Netaji Subhash chandra Bose””-1966 for producer B K Adarsha.

He wanted to resume making Bangla films. His film Ánamika’ was almost completed, when suddenly he died of brain Hemorrhage,on 1-7-1967.

He was the father of actress Archana( Buddha mil gaya-71).He directed the following films in Hindi-
Anandmath-52, Ferry-54, Meenar-54, Taaksaal-56, Raaj kamal-57, Insaaf kahan hai-59, Baabar-60, Kabuliwala-61, and Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose-66.

You will also find an unusual and unknown name Chand Burke in the cast of the film. Very little is known about her. Chand Burke made her debut in Maheshwari Productions’ Kahan Gaye (1946), which Niranjan wrote and directed. They fell in love on the sets and got married in 1945. Thereafter, Chand appeared in a number of films made in Lahore, and was widely known as “the Dancing Lily of the Punjab.”

Partition and her subsequent migration to Bombay adversely affected her career. After “Hamari Manzil,” which was released in 1949, Chand Burke went into complete oblivion. It was Raj Kapoor who selected her for that important role as children’s tormentor in “Boot Polish-53,” over 200 other contestants, her screen-test convincing Raj Kapoor that she was a talented actress. Some of her well known films were Ferry-54, Basant Bahar-56, yahudi ki beti-56, Adalat-58 and Lajwanti-58.

Chand was the only one in a family of twelve brothers and sisters to have joined the films (her brother S. M. Burke, I.C.S., was a Minister to the Scandina­vian countries for Pakistan). Chand obtained judicial separation by mutual consent from her husband, writer-director Niranjan in 1954.

She was later married to Sunder Singh Bhavnani- grandfather of superstar Ranveer Singh. She is also related to Suneeta Kapoor.

She acted in about 30 films. Her last film was Pehchan-72.

Today’s song is an exceptionally sweet song – Lori – sung by Geeta Dutt. I would rate this Lori amongst her best songs and one of the best Loris of HFM ever. I am sure all the listeners will also love it. In addition to Geeta’s Lori, there is also a small video where Hemant Kumar, Baby Bula and Geeta dutt sing one line each. Enjoy….

Blog Day:

In one recent article of Sudhir jee on his “This week that year” series, he wondered why my spree of posting one “Anmol Ghadi”(1946) song everyday had a break of one day and subsequently the final song got covered after break of one day. I do not have any recollections of those days, but I am certain about the fact that the concept of YIPPying all the songs of a movie had not entered my mind by that time. My attempt was to cover all songs that I could come across. I may have missed stumbling against the one remaining Anmol Ghadi song on that day whereas I could locate it the next day. That is the only plausible explanation that I can think of.

I find that my first interaction with Pradeep Raghunathan took place on 22 march 2011. We have had some very intersting online chats together, some lasting for one hour and more.

I find some interesting details from the online chat logs. For instance, During our discussion on 15 april 2011, I mentioned that the blog had songs from 1500 movies, and that I expect the blog to one day reach 10000 songs. 🙂 Today we have songs from over 4000 movies and we are inching towards 16000 songs mark. 🙂

During our chat on 16 december 2011, he suggested providing serial number with each song. I told him that I do it internally in my excel sheet, access table etc. Today his suggestion is being followed in the blog starting from january 2017.

During these discussions, he discussed tagging of songs on IPOD. With time he started concentrating on those movies where all songs were covered. He relied upon online sources to guess if all songs were covered. I was keeping track of songs in movies by relying on online sources. I did not have HFGK with me at that time.

I can see from our early morning interactions at 1 AM on 22 november 2012 between two sleepless souls that the blog had 141 movies YIPPEED (though the term was not coined at that time) by 22 november 2012 whereas Pradep Raghunathan had tagged all songs for 132 of them. So the gap was only 9 movies for his at that time !

From july 2014 onwards, I have access to HFGK, thanks to the generosity of our blog stalwarts M/s Arunkumar Deshmukh and Sudhir Jee, and from then onwards YIPPYIng movies in the blog has become a planned activity rather than an incidental or chance activity.

Pradeep Raghunathan was doing tagging of songs of YIPPEED movies on his own. He was subsequenly joined by Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala in this tagging of songs mission.

It gives me some comfort that today on 26 september 2020 the blog has 1221 movies YIPPEED whereas the YIPPEE team of Pradeep Raghunathan and colleagues (Khyati Bhatt, Aparna H M and Avinash Scrapwala) are at just over 1000 movies mark. I need to get my act together and start YIPPYing some more movies seeing that team YIPPEE is threatening to catch up with the YIPPEED movies in the blog.

This year 2020 has seen 41 movies getting YIPPEED. THe record was set up in 2013 whe as many as 202 movies got YIPPEED.

Now a days we keep track of movies in the blog and we know which movies are nearing YIPPEEhood. The challenge often lies in locating the balance song or songs which are often rare songs.

“Baansuriya” (1949) was directed by Ram Narayan Dave for Nigaristaan Films, Bombay. The movie had Ram Singh, Geeta Bali, Om Prakash, Randhir, Kuldip, Sofia, Gulab, Uma Dutt, Shanti Madhok, Ramesh Thakur, Raj Pal, Sham Lal, Madan Kapoor, Raja Salim, Ram Avtaar etc in it.

It can be seen that the movie was lying undiscussed in the blog since 2017. The year 2020 saw as many as three songs getting discussed in a matter of one month. Now only one song is left to be covered. That song is very much available.

Here is this eighth and final song from “Baansuriya” (1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

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

With this song, all the songs of “Baansuriya” (1949) get covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Aa ja aa ja ke jiya mora taras gaya (Baansuriya)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics- Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

aa ja aa ja
ho aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya
aa ja aa jaa
ho aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya
tera saath kabhi na chhodoon
marte dam tak munh na modoon
aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya

kaate kate na mose lambi lambi raat ho
kaate kate na mose lambi lambi raat ho
sun ja kabhi tu aake ik mori baat ho
sun ja kabhi tu aake ik mori baat ho
ik mori baat ho
ik mori baat ho
kyun humse kinaara kar gaye
hum to jeet hi hi mar gaye
aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya
aa ja aa jaa
ho aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya

maine to tere liye sab jag chhoda
maine to tere liye sab jag chhoda
kaahe bedardi toone dil mera toda
kaahe bedardi toone dil mera toda
dil mera toda
dil mera toda
ye baat bata ja aake
roothhe kyu ho nain mila ke
aa ja aa ja
ke jiya mora taras gaya
aa ja aa jaa
ho aa ja aa jaa
ke jiya mora taras gaya
