Here is the fourth song from “Jeene Do”(1948) to aappear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naashaad.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Geeta Dutt was the only female playback singer in the movie, it appears that she sang for the leading lady, who could be Menaka devi, going by the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

gulon se mohabbat to bulbul jataaye
gulon se mohabbat to bulbul jataaye
maza jab hai kaanton ko dil se lagaaye

jise gaaye lekin na samjhe zamaana

mohabbat ka naghma hai

mohabbat ko samjha to parwaana samjha
mohabbat ko samjha to parwaana samjha

“Gunsundari”(1948) was directed by Ratibhai Punatkar for Ajit Pictures, Bombay. This “social”movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, Dulari, Chhagan Romeo, Saraswati, Babu Raje, Jalejar Reutor, Kamlesh Thakkar, Nazeera, Ibrahim, Chandramukhi, Master Pransukh etc in it.

The movie had 14 songs in it that were composed by three music directors viz. Bulo C Rani, Hansraj Bahl and Avinsh Vyas.

Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Gunsundari”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. The music director of this song is not known even though there were three music directors in the movie.

Only the audio of the song is available. The song is a fun song where a devrani (husband’s younger sister) teases her bhaabhi and exhorts her to be modern in her outlook. The list of things that made an Indian lady look modern in 1948 makes for interesting reading.

Here is this fun song from “Gunsundari”(1948). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. I also request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the music director of this song. My guess is that it could be Avinash Vyas.

Today’s song is from the 1953 film ‘Raaj Ratan’.

Since childhood, we have been hearing stories of kings and queens. Most stories have a set pattern- good king, crooked vazier (minister), dutiful son, happy ending ! To go from start to finish, lot of masala used to be present, which actually made these stories interesting. We all knew the end, but it was the curiosity to know how it was achieved in the film. These stories had variations-

– Sometimes the Prince would fall prey to bad company and his beloved would set things right for him

– The Sage declares that a certain fruit of a certain tree from a certain jungle would restore the king’s eyesight  or

– The young prince is lost when still an infant, is brought up by a loyal servant, who has a lovely daughter, just made for the prince !  etc.

The attraction of these stories of kings and queens remained with us till around the time we got married and faced the realities of life.

Costume films were made for younger people – children and elders who still felt like children. ALAS ! these types of movies stopped being made by the end of the 50’s decade. Nowadays films are made in this genre, in a disguised way, using computerised special effects and having a science based background. The basic plot of good vs bad still remains the same, but presented in a way suitable for current times. That is why films like Harry Potter etc. are making millions.

Film ‘Raaj Ratan’ was also a costume drama, having the beaten track formula of the lost prince etc. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Ranjana, Ulhas, Jairaj, Sapru, Hiralal, Baby Tabassum etc. Actor Trilok Kapoor had made a Guest appearance in this film. It was produced by the Mohan Pictures workers’ society. The music was by Ninu Majumdar and songs were from Bharat Vyas.

I have seen this film in when it was released, however, I do not have its storyline with me now. I selected a song from this film with a purpose. The heroine of this film was Ranjana. Now, hardly anyone knows about this actress who had worked as a heroine with Dilip Kumar in his early career.No information is available about her in any book or on the internet. Here is some information about her, for our readers.

Ranjana’s real name was Ratan Shantaram Deshpande. She was born in Nagpur on 20-10-1927. While studying in St. Ursula High School, she learnt dancing and music from well known ustads. After passing her 6th standard examination, she came to Bombay to her elder sister, Kusum Deshpande, who was already working as actress with Minerva Movietone films. Kusum married Vasant Thengadi, a handsome actor in Hindi films of those times.

Kusum arranged for specialised dance training for Ratan in the holidays. Later Ratan was taken to Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures for an interview. She was immediately selected and got a role in the famous film ‘Ram Rajya’ (1943). In this film she was Chitralekha, Sita’s sakhi. Vijay Bhatt also changed her name to Ranjana. She was on pay roles of Prakash Pictures for Rs. 2000 pm. She acted in  films like ‘Police’ (1944), ‘Vikramaditya’ (1945) and ‘Hamaara Sansar’ (1945). Next films were ‘Nai Maa’ (1946) and ‘Zamin Aasman’ (1946).

Ranjana was called by Bombay Talkies for heroine’s role opposite Dilip kumar in the film ‘Milan’ (1946). This film was based on the Bangla film ‘Nauka Doobi’ written by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. She did the role of Hem Nalini in this film’s Hindi version. The same role was done by Meera Sircar in the Bangla film ‘Nauka Doobi’.

After this film, Ranjana was in great demand, but she wanted to quit films and get married to live a simple life. But as luck would have it, she had to continue working in films till 1975. She also worked in many Marathi films. In all, she worked in about 35 films. Ranjana worked with many big stars of her times like Prem Adeeb, Prithviraj Kapoor, Jairaj, Dilip Kumar, Jeevan, Umakant etc. It is interesting to note that her sister and her brother-in-law acted with her in few films. Some such films were ‘Zamin Aqsman’ (1946) and ‘Shadi Se Pehle’ (1947). In the film ‘Saajan Ka Ghar’ (1948) all three had worked together.

Her sister Kusum Deshpande was born on 20-11-1914 at Nagpur. She came to Bombay in 1930 and worked in Minerva as an apprentice, without pay. She also worked with All India Radio, and in some Marathi dramas and films. Her first Hindi film was ‘Ghar Ki Rani’ (1940). She also did ‘Charnon Ki Daasi’ (1941), ‘Village Girl’ (1945), ‘Wamaq Azra’ (1946) and ‘Zamin Aasmaan’ (1946). In all she did 20 Hindi films. She married actor Vasant Thengadi on 30-11-1944.

Vasant Thengadi was born on 11-1-1910 at Nagpur. He was the son of a Congress leader Dhaniram Thengadi. Vasant had his education in Poona. He could not join army (then the British 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 film ‘Dhuwaandhaar’ (1935). [Author Note: 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’ (1945), ‘Phir Bhi Apna Hai’ (1946), ‘Mera Ladka’ (1938), ‘Din Raat’ (1945), ‘Ten O’clock’ (1942) etc. Later he also worked as assistant director to Raja Nene.

We have many families like this in Hindi films. I remember Zubeida and her mother and sisters, Sitara Devi and her 2 sisters, Nargis, her mother and brothers, Kapoor family, Dilip kumar, his brother and sister in law, many film couples and families of several film people are examples. Ranjana was perhaps one early example. Thank God this Ranjana was not around when yet another Ranjana came to Hindi films. She was Ranjana Deshmukh, niece of actress Sandhya (nee Vijaya Deshmukh). This Ranjana, however , worked mainly in Marathi films and did only 4 Hindi films starting with the famous film ‘Chaani’ (1977). Unfortunately, she first met with an accident and then died of Heart attack at the age of just 40 years or so.

‘Raaj Ratan’ has 7 songs – 3 Geeta solos,  2 Asha solos 1 solo each of Meena Kapoor and Rafi. Today’s song is a 2 in 1 song. Part 1 and 2 combined in one song having a 78 RPM record of two sides. The Music was by Ninu Mujumdar (9-9-1915 to 3-3-2000), who sang 28 songs in 13 films and composed 169 songs in 18 films.

Song – Rang Rangeeli Naariyon Ke Rang Rangeele Vesh Hain (Raaj Ratan) (1953) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, Music – Ninu Majumdar

Lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)

rang rangeeli naariyon ke
rang rengeele vesh hain
rang rangeeli naariyon ke
rang rengeele vesh hain
roop hain anek aur
ek in ka desh hai
ek in ka desh hai

rang rangeeli naariyaan
jaise phulwaariaan
bagiya mein mehak rahi
kesar ki kyaariaan
dekh lo. . .
dekh lo

dekh lo banaras ki sundari
jiski lehraati lehron si chundari
jo gaati hai daadra aur thumri
thumak thumak gaati hai daadra aur thumri

oo oo oo
laagi naahin chhoote ho raama
chaahe jiya jaaye raama ho
chaahe jiya jaaye
chaahe jiya jaaye raama o ho
chaahe jiya jaaye
chaahe jiya jaaye
chaahe jiya jaaye

peepal ke jhaad hain
ret ke pahaad hain
ghunghat mein naach raha mast maarwaad hai
dekh lo. . .
dekh lo
dekh lo

sarvar paani lene jaaun to
najar lag jaaye
sarvar paani lene jaaun to
najar lag jaaye
mhaari toshni pade ko dhaula rang ud jaaye
ho dhaula rang ud jaaye
mhaare heengdu ki tikiya(?) darad bhar jaaye
sarvar paani lene jaaun to
najar lag jaaye
najar lag jaaye
haaye dulhan hoye jaaye
najar lag jaaye
haaye dulhan hoye jaaye
sarvar paani lene jaaun to
najar lag jaaye

rang rangeeli naariyon ke
rang rengeele vesh hain
rang rangeeli naariyon ke
rang rengeele vesh hain
roop hain anek aur
ek in ka desh hai
ek in ka desh hai
rang rangeeli naariyaan
jaise phulwaariaan
bagiya mein mehak rahi
kesar ki kyaariaan

naajukadi naar chale paayal jhankaar
range mehndi se gore gore haath hain
poonam ki raat
goonje garbe ka geet
aisa preet bhara
sangeet bhara pyaar gujraat hai
dekh lo. . .
dekh lo

mehndi ki maandi naar ve
aeno rang gayo goojrat re
mehndi rang laagyo ri
naano jiyaario laadpo kai
laagyo mehndi na chhodbe
mehndi rang laagyo ri

lambe hain kesh
aadha mardaana vesh
aur haathon mein teekhi talwar hai
rann mein lade veer naari maraathan
ran chandi ka avatar hai
dekh lo..oo..oo..oo..oo

hey dhanya maharani jhansi
ghodyavar khaashi
kuthoon kahi ghushi ganeema kare lail ke dwaar
chap-chapa chaal ek talwar
sukhandi pasri kirti paar ji
ji ji ji ji ji
nawaaja (??) hauj(?) to paar ji
ji ji ji ji ji

ey ji saanwra baran
komal komal charan
ey ji saanwra baran
komal komal charan
kaare kaare do naina vishaal hain
taaron ki chhahan taley
bikhra ke kesh chaley
jaadu bhara bangaal hai
ho dekho jaadu bhara bangaal hai
dekh lo. . .
dekh lo

tumi kaader kuler bou
go tumi kaader kuler bou
jamuna jol aante jaachchho
shonge neyi to keu
tumi kaader kuler bou
jamuna jol aante jaachchho
shonge neyi to keu
tumi kaader kuler bou
tumi kaader kuler bou

rang rangeeli naariyon ke

म्हारे हींगड़ू की तिकिया(?) दरद भर जाये
सरवर पानी लेने जाऊन तो
नजर लग जाये

नाजुकड़ी नार चले पायल झंकार
रंगे मेहंदी से गोरे गोरे हाथ हैं

गूँजे गरबे का गीत
ऐसा प्रीत भरा प्यार गुजरात है

मेहंदी की मांडी नार वे
ऐनो रंग गयो गूजरात रे
मेहंदी रंग लाग्यो री
नानो जियारिओ लाडपो कई

મહેંદી કી માંડી નાર વે
એનો રંગ ગેઓ ગુજારાત રે
મહેંદી રંગ લાગઓ રી
નાનો જિયારિયો લાડપો કાઈ
લાગઓ મહેંદી ના છોડબે
મહેંદી રંગ લાગઓ રી

हे धन्य महाराणी झांशी
