Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-10 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)
————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post, where we discuss the last collaboration of ‘Sahir and His Music Directors’. I will not conclude this series with today’s post, though. I will conclude this series in my next post where I will provide updated details of Sahir’s filmography.

Today’s music director with Sahir is Ravi.

The names of Sahir and Ravi immediately brings to our mind a long list of immortal, memorable, unforgettable and iconic songs.
If we want to list them here that would require a lot of space, instead, we take a look on the list of the movies of this great collaboration ;

I am sure the above list will bring back fond memories for many people.

Today’s song reminds us of the famous “Kaajal”(1965) bhajan ‘tora man darpan kahlaaye’.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. It is from the movie ‘Chingaari-1971/1989’ (released in 1989). Leena Chandavarkar and Durga Khote are seen lip syncing this song.

Let us now listen to this beautiful bhajan …

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-9 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)

In my earlier post in this series, I had mentioned that after the ‘seven-movie’ collaborations we have only three collaborations left and that they are ‘more than ten-movie collaborations’ with music directors N. Datta, S.D. Burman and Ravi.

So, out of total 717 songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi as per the total of HFGK 48% songs i.e., 347 songs are with music directors other than the above three music directors.

We have covered one of these ‘three-big’ collaborations i.e., Sahir-N. Datta collaboration in the earlier post. They collaborated for seventeen (17) movies including one un-released movie i.e., ‘Picnic-1960’. And the total number of songs from this collaboration are 108 (as per HFGK).
If we include the post before this the total number of songs now on the blog for Sahir- N Datta collaboration is 104.

Now we move to the next big collaboration which as per the total number of movies is with S.D. Burman, and Sahir and S.D. Burman collaborated for ‘eighteen’ (18) movies creating 134 songs. If we add the ‘verses’ from ‘Pyaasa-1957’ and two snippets (from ‘House no.44-1955’ and ‘Funtoosh-1956’ (as given in the book ‘The People’s Poet’ by Akshay Manwani) the total comes to 140. Well, we have 135 songs already posted on the blog for this collaboration.

I am not giving the details of movies of ‘Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration’ in today’s post. I am leaving it to be covered in another post which will be coming on a very special occasion.
However, we can have a look of the summary of Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration which is as given below;

S.no. MD Songs of lyricist in the blog Song penned by lyricist in movie as per HFGK Song penned by lyricist in movie as per the book -The People’s Poet
01 S.D. BURMAN 135 134 140

Today we are move to the next ‘one of the three great collaborations’ which is Sahir and music director Ravi.

But here we will take a pause, and listen to one of the songs of this association from the oldest pending movie ‘not yippeeee’ed’ on the blog which is ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’. (I am taking this liberty to cover one more song in this series 😊)

‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’ was directed by Jawar N Sitaraman for ‘Gemini Productions, Madras’. It had Ashok Kumar, Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Tanuja, Shashikala, Jagirdar, Aseem Kumar, Abhimanyu Sharma, Gopal Krishnan, Sharad Kumar, Lalita Kumari, Praveen Pal, Sarita Devi and others.

This movie had five songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravi.

So far, three songs of this movie have been posted on the blog. Today we listen to the fourth song of this movie which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and performed on screen by Mala Sinha.
I have not watched this movie ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar’, but when I listened to the today’s song it looks like a familiar song but not much heard or frequently played song.

And the composition by Ravi also appears to be a ‘Shankar-Jaikishan’ style composition.
That is what I think 😊

let us now listen to the today’s song …


Song-Jaane kyun baar baar baar mera dil (Paisa Ya Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jis’se milte nahin
bilkul hi khayaalaat tere
kyun pareshaan hai uske liye
jazbaat tere
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe ae
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jo tere husn ki tauheen kare
us’se naa mil
jo kisi doosri sajdhaj pe mare
us’se naa mil
mujhko to jo bhi dekhe
raahon mein aahen bhare
main kyun kisi pe maroon
mujh pe zamaana marey
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

ho sake to koyi
sangeen sazaa de usko
tere qaabil nahin wo
dil se bhulaa de usko
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-8 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)
—————————————————————————————————–

In this series ‘Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors’ today we have discussed Sahir Ludjainvi’s collaboration with Music directors upto ‘seven movies’. After seven-movies collaborations we move to double figures. Today’s music director with Sahir is N. Datta.

If we look at the total number of songs written by Sahir i.e.,717 as per HFGK and the total number of songs up to ‘seven-movie collaboration’ which is 347 songs from movies, which gives us 48% songs from these collaborations. (Out of these 347 songs 328 songs have already been posted on the blog.)

After this we have only three music directors left to be discussed. I am sure everybody is aware of these three ‘great’ collaborations though the very old and first one ended abruptly after ‘Pyaasa-1957’ i.e., Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration.

Today we look into one of these ‘three’ great collaborations of Sahir and that is with music director N. Datta.

This fabulous collaboration created many memorable songs gems and gave us many unforgettable gems in Hindi Film Music history.

Sahir Ludhianvi and N. Datta collaborated in ‘seventeen’ movies including one song for one ‘un-released’ movie.

Here is the details of their movies together;

If we go through the list of movies (as given above), we have two movies yet to be covered with all of their songs. These two movies are ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ and ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.
For ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ only one Sahir song is pending and I guess this song is yet not available and/or difficult to find. So, we move to the next movie which is ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.

‘Chehre Pe Chehraa-1980’ was directed by Raj Tilak, for ‘Tilak Movies, Bombay’.

Raj Tilak was also the producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Vinod Mehra, Sulakshana Pandit, Amol Palekar, Rajani Sharma, Shree Ram Lagoo, Iftekhar, Shammi, Suresh Chatwal, Kumar Aditya, Prem Sagar and others.

Shatrughan Sinha and Amjad Khan make special appearances in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Raj Marbrose and dialogues were written by Kadar Khan. Editing of this movie was done by Madhu Sinhaa.

This movie is said to be based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Dr. Jeykll & Mr. Hyde’ and it was passed by Censor Board on 21.05.1980 with restricted viewing certificate (i.e., ‘A’).

This movie had six songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by N. Datta. Background music for this movie was given by Salil Chaudhary.

Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Sulakshana Pandit had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Hullo Atuldom

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

Today’s song is from a film which hardly anyone knows. The name was unknown, the director was unknown and the 3 Music Directors who composed 8 songs by two lyricists, did not become famous. The film is Bedard-1949. It was directed by B.N.Chouhan, who is credited with two more films for direction, namely Ret mahal-49 and Jungle ki Duniya-59.

There were 3 Music Directorss – Ramprasad Sharma, B.N.Bali and Mohd. Shafi. In the HFGK, out of 8 songs of the film only 2 are credited to Ramprasad. Other songs are uncredited. Luckily, today’s song is credited to Ramprasad Sharma.

Film Industry is one industry which grew very fast. Firstly, there was no competition (except from AIR for entertainment) and secondly, joining this industry needed no special qualifications. Moreover, from the beginning, the ROI (Returns On the Investment) ratio was quite high, once you took care of few parameters like, good actors, good songs and a mix of Romance and Comedy !

Thousands of aspirants, the Good looking, the Bad looking and the Ugly looking rushed to Bombay, Lahore and Calcutta to try their luck. Tawaifs and stage artists had an easy entry, so was for the Handsome and Muscular bodied males.

The studio system took care of grooming its employees. Most people were hired without any specific job description. When needed, the script writer or the Lyricist had to act in the film, and Choreographer-Dance Master in those days-had to take up Direction- if needed. Artists graduated from menial jobs to important positions. That is how Choreographer Guru Dutt became a Director and a Hero, Lyricist and writer J.S.Casshyap became actor/singer, or Amiya Chakrawarty became famous Director from being the Canteen Manager in Bombay Talkies, Ashok kumar became Hero from being a Technician in Camera Department and an Extra working as one of the 40 thieves in ” Alibaba and 40 Thieves”-1929, became the Movie Mughal, Director Mehboob Khan.

Those times were different. Industry needed people in all departments. Heads of Studios were like expert jewellers. They knew how to nurture talents. Successful strugglers had empathy towards existing strugglers and gave them an opportunity to showcase their skills. Studios got the right people for the right jobs. Real Talents survived, rest disappeared.

There were many One timers, who acted in only 1-2 films, directed just 1 film, produced 1 movie, sung only a few songs or gave music to only 1 or 2 films. Luck also played an important role. Artistes seeking opportunities in Music Departments like singing and composing were many. Most got chances, few prospered.

But it is important to note that every ‘One timer’ was contributing towards Industry’s growth. Like every drop makes an ocean, these one timers or short distance runners also gave their might to the industry. Those who disappeared after a short performance remained alive through their contribution on record. Hundreds of aspirants came to become Music Directors, only few made the grade, survived and the rest simply vanished. These short time passengers or composers had their time of glory too. Their songs were cherished but their names were forgotten.

Before I proceed further, can you tell me what is the common link in the following names ?

Pyarelal-Ganesh-Naresh-Mahesh-Anand-Gorakh.

They are all brothers and sons of Pandit RAMPRASAD SHARMA. He was a Music Director.
.
Pt. Ramprasad Sharma, born in 1900, belonged to Gorakhpur in the United provinces (today’s U.P.). Seeing his love for music, he was brought to Bharatpur State by the king’s bandmaster. He played Trumpet here, then played in Agra Military Band and ended up joining a Circus as a Band Master himself. He toured Delhi, Lahore and Calcutta ,where he settled for some time. He married a local Post Master’s daughter and also worked for Columbia and New Theatres. By now he was an expert in 10 instruments and knew all Ragas.

He came to Bombay in 1938 and played in many studios. His first film as MD was Nayi Baat-1947, then Taqdeerwale-48, Shakti-48, Bedard-49, Banu- 49, Anyay-49, Dolti Naiyya-50 and finally Magic Carpet-64.

His knowledge of Music was so deep that many Composers like Kalyan ji, Roshan, Uttamsingh, Hridaynath Mangeshkar etc came to him to learn notations in which he was a Master. Probably, having played as a Band Master helped him. Those days, very few musicians knew how to write music in Notations. This art was carried further by his another son Ganesh.

Despite his knowledge of music, he failed as a composer himself and worked/played for other Music Directors like Naushad, K. Dutta, C. Ramchandra etc. His trumpet playing in the famous song of Rafi ” Suhani raat dhal chuki” (film Dulari-1949) is unforgettable.

Pt. Ramprasad will be remembered by many composers as their teacher. Though his music was melodious and good, his Luck was not so good.

His 2 sons Pyarelal and Ganesh became famous composers.

Pt.Ramprasad died on 22-8-1995 at Mumbai.

The cast of the film was Majnu, Sudha Rao, Shanta kunwar, Ameenabai, Abu Bakar etc.etc. Majnu (real name Harold Lewis) came to Bombay after Partition. Bedard-49 was among the few films in which he was the Hero. A Punjabi Christian, he was born on 2-11-1913. He was the childhood friend of Roop K.Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film, he chose Harold as a Hero. Majnu was introduced as a leading man opposite Shyama Zutshi by producer/director Roop K. Shorey in film Majnu (1935) — a musical comedy satirizing the old story of Laila Majnu, produced, directed and shot in Lahore with Ghulam Haider as music director. With daring motorbike stunts and special effects, audiences were thrilled at the sight of Majnu trapped on the railway tracks by the villain.

The film was a success and R. K. Shorey repeated Majnu as the leading man in his next film, Tarzan ki Beti (1938). Tarzan Ki Beti was hailed as the best jungle picture ever produced in India at the time. Filmed in the snowy Himalayas, the film topped its predecessor in its action sequences and placed Punjab on the entertainment map of India and the world.

He appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films. He was also doing films with other producers. In 1942 he did a double role in Nishani and in 1943 he directed his first film Paapi. Shorey also gave him a film Badnami-1946 for direction and it was here that Majnu met I.S.Johar who wrote the story and Dialogues of Badnami.

Majnu paired with I.S.Johar in EK THI LADKI-1949,the debut film of Johar, as an actor. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit HUM SAB CHOR HAIN-1956. His last film with Johar was Akalmand-66.

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was Majnu-35 and his much delayed and released last film was Shri Krishna Bhakti-73.
Majnu directed 8 films including,Paapi-43, Badnami-46, Son of Alibaba-55, Tatar ka chor-55, Malika-56, Basre ki Hoor-56, Baghi sardar-56, and his last film – Chandu-58.

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The year 1949 was the beginning of the “Golden Era” of HFM. Let us take a quick look at some nteresting movies this year.

Lyrics

kya sach hai kasam wo bhulaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain
kya sach hai kasam wo bhulaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain

kasam wo jo haathhon ko haathhon mein lekar
mujhe waasta apni ulfat ka de kar
nibhaane ka waada bhulaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain
kya sach hai kasam wo bhulaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain

kasam wo jo aankhon ko aankhon mein daale
kasam wo jo aankhon ko aankhon mein daale
ye kahte thhe rah rah ke apna bana le
ye kahte thhe rah rah ke apna bana le
mujhe mere saathhi mitaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain
kya sach hai kasam wo bhulaane lage hain
bhulaane lage hain
mitaane lage hain

Hullo Atuldom

12th February was the birthday of an Atulite. He has started a series to introduce missing movies of the ’70s, and just as well as movies of 70s will complete 50 years. It is unbelievable that movies that were part of our childhood are 50 years old.

‘Guddi’, ‘Andaz’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Caravan’, ‘Anand’, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Parwana’, ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, etc all 1971 releases, all which I have seen multiple times. I am sure that these movies would be favourites of a majority of the followers of this blog.

There is one more movie that will complete 50 years this year. Its release date has been recorded on various internet sites as 1st July 1971, but the censor certificate has a date of 24th February 1970 i.e. exactly a year after its leading lady bade goodbye to this mortal world.

Madhubala- the beauty who charmed an entire generation of moviegoers. A beauty who had an infectious smile and near-musical laughter: – can anyone forget the laughter that precedes ‘haal kaisa hai janaab ka’ or the mischievous smile through ‘accha jee main haari chalo maan jaao na’ and ‘jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya tore angna’. Her eyes were so expressive. But write-ups about her say that she kept a low public profile and was not seen at film parties and premieres.

She was born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi in Delhi on 14th February (which the world celebrates as valentine day in modern times) as fifth of eleven children to Ataullah Khan and Ayesha Begum. An out of work father first reached Delhi from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) and then to Bombay. A very young Mumtaz was first cast as a child actor in the 1942 release ‘Basant’ which was followed by ‘Mumtaz Mahal’,‘Phulwaari’, ‘Dhana Bhagat’, ‘Rajputaani’. Baby Mumtaz became Madhubala from “Neel Kamal” in 1947. It is said that baby Mumtaz and baby Mahjabeen became friends in the period they were child actors and grew up to be contemporaries – Madhubala and Meena Kumari. Madhubala is said to have been a fan of Meena and her voice.

Madhubala was one of the most popular, successful and highly paid actresses of the ‘50s and ’60s. She acted in 73 movies in a career spanning almost two decades though the ‘60s saw only five films of hers. She also produced three movie: – ‘Naata’ (1955), ‘Mehlonkekhwab’ (1960) and ‘Pathan’ (1962). She sang a song or two as baby Mumtaz in ‘Basant’. She was an enigma who was rarely seen at filmy functions or premieres, this was because she was an obedient daughter and submitted to the domination of her father. According to what Dilip Kumar has once said:- she was the only female star for whom crowds would gather at the gates of the studios where she was shooting. Many believe she was one of the most underrated actresses as her beauty attracted more attention than her talent. She was good at expressing a range of emotions through her eyes- comedy, pathos etc etc. In spite of being an iconic actress she never won any awards and was only nominated for her role in “Mughal-e-azam” but she reigned on the hearts of her fans.

She was unlucky in life and had a few heartbreaks before leaving this world and Kishore Kumar, whom she married in 1960, yearning for her. She died on 23rd February 1969 of congenital heart disease;an ailment for which there was no treatment when she was diagnosed in 1954 on the sets of a film being made in Madras. By the time heart surgeries were possible she was too weak to withstand and was confined to bed for nearly nine years. In 1966 she attempted to complete her part of work in the Raj Kapoor starrer “Chalaak” but that was also a strain for her fragile body. (Most of this information I have found on Wikipedia about an actress/ star who was on my dad’s list of favorites in those times).

The song with this post is from a movie that was shot sometime in the ‘50sand we have a very young Sunil Dutt romancing the princess “Jwala” (Madhubala). This movie is significant as it is the only movie of Madhubala that was shot in colour, “Mughal-e-azam” was partly in colour at the time of making, but “Jwala” was made as a colour movie. Sudhirji’s post gives us details about the movie which was essentially a ‘princess falling in love with a commoner who turns out to be a prince in exile’ story. Today’s song is written by Rajinder Krishan, tuned by Shankar -Jaikishan and sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar.

February was the month of Madhubala’s birth and she would have turned 88. It is also the month she left the world at 36. We, her fans, can only fantasize how she would have looked as an octogenarian.

Blog Day :

4602 Post No. : 16230

We have been discussing movies where one song was posted long ago and it took ages before the second song was posted on the blog. The ‘ten-year challenge’ gives us opportunities for posting songs of such movies which have been on the blog and running well 😊, and also movies which took almost twelve years to get all their songs covered on the blog after their debut. (Latest case being the movie ‘Warrant-1975’ which was ‘Yippeeee’ed’ recently. The first song of ‘Warrant-1975’ was posted on the blog in September’2008).

Then there are movies whose songs get posted on ‘regular intervals’ like ‘Olympic’ games or ‘world cup cricket’ 😊

Today we are presenting a song from a movie where the earlier songs appeared on the blog at ‘regular interval’ of ‘four years’. This movie is ‘The Burning Train-1980’.

It debuted on the blog with the famous ‘qawwali’ Pal do pal ka saath hamaaraa which was posted on 08.12.2008.
Then the second this movie was posted on 17.10.2012 – Teri hai zameen tera aasmaan .
Third song got posted on 08.12.2016 which wasWaada, haan jee waada, jab tak amber par taare….

Incidentally the last post of 08.12.2016 was also presented by me. The song talks about ‘waadaa’, but we could not keep our ‘promise’ to post a song after four years i.e.in ‘2020’, even though two songs were lying ready with us. Today’s song , quite appropriately says ‘kisi ke waade pe kyun aitbaar hamne kiya’. 😊. Nevertheless, if not in ‘December-2020’ we are doing it now in ‘February-2021’…

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was directed by Ravi Chopra for B.R. Films, Bombay. It was produced by B.R. Chopra. Ravi Chopra also wrote the story of this movie. It had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh, Danny, Vinod Mehra, Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Simi, Asha Sachdev, Padmini Kapila, Romesh Sharma, Payal, Asrani, Ranjeet, Iftekhar, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Rajendranath, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Padma Khanna, Komila Virk, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherji, Paintal, Dinesh Thakur, Yunus Parvez, Shammi, Ravindra Kapoor, T.P. Jain, Jankidas, Jagdish Raj, Gufi, Sudha Shivpuri, M. Rajan, Uma Dhawan, Mac Mohan, Anand Balraj, Prem Bedi, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo, Junior Danny, Master Romy, Master Salim and others. Madan Puri, Chandrashekhar, Satyen Kappu and Urmila Bhatt make a guest appearance in this movie.

Its screenplay and dialogues were written by Kamleshwar ji. Pran Mehra was the chief editor for this movie and S.B. Mane and R.P. Bapat assisted him.

This movie was passed by Censor Board 20.03.1980.

Music for this movie was composed by Anil Biswas. Editor’s note:-According to Girdharilal Vishwakarma (a well known record collector), A R Qureshy is the music director for this song.

Today 21st February’2021 is the thirty-first ‘remembrance anniversary’ (1918 -21.02.1990) of singer Zohrabai Ambalewali.
As a tribute to her here is song from ‘Naiyya-1947’ sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

I had come across this song in August’2014 and since then it is lying to be posted. However, in between its link that I had shared initially also become obsolete but luckily, I got the audio of this song which is uploaded for listening.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song remembering Zohrabai Ambalewali who had given us many many memorable and unforgettable songs in HFM history.

Today’s song is from a totally obscure and unknown film – Draupadi-1944. It was a Mythological story set in Mahabharat times, underlining the ills of Gambling. This film was made by Baburao Pendharkar, under his own banner- New Huns Pictures Ltd. Bombay (Huns Pictures was owned by Master Vinayak. After it closed down, this was floated.) The first film of this banner was Nagad Narayan-1943 and after this second film, the company was closed.

The director was Baburao Patel and the film’s story, dialogues and screenplay was written by its Heroine Susheela Rani herself. 9 songs- all sung by Susheela Rani, were composed by Pt. Hanuman Prasad. Pt. Indra wrote the lyrics. The cast of the film was Susheela Rani, Badri Prasad, Mazhar Khan, Chandra Mohan, Anant marathe, Surekha, Kanhaiyalal,Leela Mishra and a host of small artistes.

Cut to 11-2-2014 Evening, Bandra-Mumbai

On this day, there was a function in a Hall, to release the book ” Sagar Movietone”, written by shri Biren kothari ji. The chief guest was Amir khan. I was invited to this function. Since I knew Biren ji earlier, I went to this function. Many stars like Amir khan, Anil kapoor, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and others from the film world had come. Among the honourable guests was a 95 year old singer/dancer/actress of yesteryears- Susheela rani was also present.I had an opportunity to meet her and spend about 15 minutes talking to her about our Blog and the ” History Recording Work” that we do here. She looked appropriately impressed. During that function, I also met Urvish kothari, Chandrashekhar Vaidya, Shishir krishna Sharma and also Nalin Shah for the first time.(He was of course with his trade mark white Fur Cap – a la V.Shantaram style). It was a memorable function, in which I added one more celebrity of films in my list having met so far. Sadly, within 6 months of this function, Susheela Rani left this world.

Susheela Rani was one of the very few highly educated film personalities in that era. More than a singer actress, she was first into film journalism and later into teaching music and dance for the rest of her life.

Sushila Rani Patel (1918–2014) was a classical singer, actress, vocalist, Lawyer, and journalist. She established Shiv Sangeetanjali, a school for classical music. She was born on 20-10-1918 at Madras. Her father- Madhav Rao Tombat, a Chitrapur Saraswat Brahmin from Karwar – was an advocate in Madras High Court. She did her M.A. and came to Bombay to become a journalist. Here she met Baburao Patel through a friend. He offered her a Sub Editor’s post in his Film India magazine.

In those days, Baburao Patel was involved with actress Padma Devi. When Susheela Rani became close to Baburao, she slowly ensured that Padma Devi made an exit from Baburao’s life.

Sushila Rani Patel began her singing career in 1942 when she signed a recording contract with HMV music company. In the early years of her career, she was helped by Baburao Patel. In 1944 she acted in film Draupadi and in 1946 in film Gwalan, playing the lead actor and singer. Both films fared poorly at the box-office. They were directed by Baburao Patel whom she later married.

Continuing with her singing career, Rani trained with renowned classical singers like Mogubai Kurdikar and later with Sundarabai Jadhav. In 1961 Rani and her husband Baburao Patel set up Shiv Sangeetanjali, a school for classical music. It was established to encourage classical music and also discover new talent. Some of her students were Pradeep Barot, Ronu Majumdar, Sadanand Nayampilli, Dhanashree Pandit Rai and Nityanand Haldipur. Shiv Sangeetanjali was later amalgamated into the Sushilarani Baburao Patel Trust.

Rani and her husband also ran a film business-related magazine called Filmindia, later to evolve into the more political Mother India. Rani and Baburao Patel wrote under the pseudonyms “Judas” and “Hyacinth”. Their column was called Bombay Calling. Almost the entire content of the magazine was produced by them. Rani would personally conduct interviews with film personalities. She was close to actress Madhubala, who had started acting at a young age, and taught her to speak, read, and write English. At the age of 45 years, Susheela Rani did her LL.B. and LL.M. from Bombay University and registered her name as a Lawyer in the High Court.

After Baburao’s death in 1982, she managed the magazine till 1985 and then it was closed.

In her later years, Rani was involved in a property dispute with the children and grandchildren of her late husband’s second wife over the ownership of their House. Rani continued to run her classical music school until her death on 24-7- 2014 at the age of 96.

Rani received the Maharashtra Rajya Sanskrutik Puraskar, and in 2002 the Sangeet Natak Akademi award. (Partly based on information from wiki, with thanks and my own notes.)

When you talk of Susheela Rani, you can’t ignore Baburao Patel. She was his third wife. Contrary to his wife, Baburao had not even passed his matriculation, but he was a highly learned man in various subjects on his own efforts. The name of Baburao Patel is known to every old film lover, but as a political commentator and a Member of Parliament, he is known to others. From the mid 30s to the 80s he was a name synonymous with daredevil journalism, superb quality English writing and an active Lifestyle. Add to it several marriages and countless children by legitimate and otherwise relationships.

Baburao Pandurang Patil ( he mas a ‘ Marathi Manoos’ and not a Gujarati) was born on 4-4-1904 ( a strange confluence of numbers, the total of all these digits also add up to prime number 4 only), in Masvan village, about 100 kms from Bombay, in Palghar district, in a Vanzara ( Banjara) community. When he was 4 year old, mother died, father remarried and family shifted to Bombay. He was put in an English school. However he did not complete his Matriculation. Lack of formal education always pinched him in life and he always respected highly educated people. He compensated by avidly reading books on Philosophy, Religion, Politics and Medicine. This gave him excellent command over spoken and written English language.

After doing many petty jobs. He joined ” Cinema Samachar ‘ a film magazine in Hindi, English and Urdu languages, in 1926. He never knew when he entered the Film world becoming a script writer and a director. He established his own banner ‘ Gandharva Cinetone ‘ and made 5 films as a Director- Kismat-31 (silent film), Sati Mahananda-33, Maharani-34, Baala Joban-34 and Pardesi Sainya-35. Later in life, he directed 2 more films- with (future wife) Susheela Rani Patel as Heroine- Draupadi-44 and Gwalan-46.

He joined D.N.Parkar, who owned New Jack printing press and who was publishing a house magazine ” Prabhat” for Prabhat films. He started his magazine ‘ FILM INDIA’ in April 1935, at a price of 4 annas(annual 3 rupees). From the first issue, it was printed on high quality art paper. The first issue featured a hand painting of actress and Novelist Nalini Tarkhud, from film Chandrasena, on the cover. There were many ads in the magazine, which promised “honest journalism and constructive criticism”, though in later issues his criticism was incisive, insulting and quite daring. The cine industry feared his reviews, but readers adored him.

In all this, Baburao’s surname became Patel instead of Patil. He continued with it. He hurt many of his fellow filmmakers and actors. In one case, Shanta Apte is on record having gone to his office and beaten him with a whip, for his defamatory and derogatory remarks in the magazine. Khwaja Ahmed Abbas joined him and looked after the magazine when Baburao went abroad.

Baburao married 3 times.First marriage was when he was studying. The second was with Shirin and the third was with his ex-secretary Sushila Rani Tombat- a konkani good looking singer and dancer.

Sidharth Bhatia has written a book on ” The Patels of Filmindia”. Noted author Manto also wrote extensively on Baburao. Bhatia says, ‘ Baburao had an eloquence and power of writing. He had a sharp humour,often barbed. There was a tough guy assertiveness with his venomous pen.” Baburao called Kalpana Kartik ” Pigeon busted”, Suraiya- ” Ugly’, and Dev Anand ” effeminate”. Meena kumari was ” like an inverted shuttlecock”.

His magazine celebrated 50 years in 1985. Baburao became an MP from M.P. in 1967 for Jansangh. One good quality of Baburao was that he was very kind to the poor and helpless people. Baburao Patel died on 4-9-1982.

Film Draupadi was a failure, but undeterred, Baburao Patel tried one more time to make Susheela Rani a successful actress, by featuring her in a social film Gvalan-1946. This time he chose well known artistes. She sang 8 out of 10 songs in the film. Alas ! This film also flopped. Good sense prevailed and no more attempts were made again towards this goal !

Susheela Rani was a good singer and I find her songs of Draupadi and Gwalan very good. However that alone was not enough for her films. Let us enjoy this song today.
