Today we have a 2-part song from the film Guzara-1954.

The film was made by Aina pictures-owned by S.M.Yusuf. The film was produced and directed by S.M.Yusuf himself. he also did a small role in this film- the only film role he ever did in his film career. There were 3 lyricists- Raja Mehdi Ali Khan (5 songs), Fauk Jami (2 songs) and Munir Lucknowi (1 song) for the film’s 8 songs. Music Director was Ghulam Mohammad.

I have not seen this film. However, from what I have learnt about the film from various sources is that , the film was based on the life of a middle class family who finds it difficult to run the family in the limited income that the family had. The story concluded that mental happiness with our own people is the greatest happiness compared to rich living ! A typical Nehruvian philosophy- very popular in those times. Even big filmmakers like Mehboob Khan were also sold on this ideology. These were the days of rationing and shortages, increasing corruption and black marketing. The common man was broken in pieces but was fed the socialistic wine to keep him quiet !

The cast of the film was Karan Dewan, Paro, Jabeen jalil, Chand Burke, Baby Naaz, Romi, Tiwari, Balam and many others. This was the film in which actress Jabeen Jalil made her Debut.

In the early days of cinema, people joined the film industry for various reasons like…
1) joining filmline did not need any special skill
2) language, religion, education was not a consideration
3) need to earn
4) readiness to do any work

As the Talkie film era started, the requirements changed. For acting, one needed the ability to speak Hindi/Urdu fluently. A reasonably good looking personality and knowledge of singing were additional qualifications. For other technical departments, readiness to do hard work and a will to learn were required. During this phase many girls from singing families (read Tawaifs) were preferred and for them entry into films was easier compared to others. Many girls joined the filmline to get a good husband and settle as a housewife with dignity. Thus many Gujarati Sethiyas married actresses.

There was a very small but distinct category of artistes, who joined films as a “time pass’ or a passion for a short period. These artistes had no intention to continue in the film line.Their interests were varied and different from only doing work in films. included in this category were Classical singers like Manik Varma, Hirabai badodekar, Ram Marathe, Phiroz Dastoor, actresses like Shakuntala Paranjpye, Vasanti, Renuka Devi etc, writers like Dewan Sharar, Lyricists like Moti,B.A., MD like Mukund Rai Trivedi, actors like Kaycee Mehra, Shashi Kapoor Sr. etc, classical instrument players like Ravi Shankar, Pannalal Ghosh, Alla Rakha, Ali Akbar khan etc.

Nevertheless 99% of people joined because they needed to earn money. In the cast of today’s film Guzara-54, you see a name Jabeen Jalil. She is one such artiste who needed to earn money. Jabeen Jalil was a short petite but attractive actress.She was born on 1st April 1936 in Delhi, but was educated in Japan and Bombay, as her father was in foreign services of India.

She used to take part in college dramas and in one such drama the judges were Nigar Sultana and her director husband S.M.Yusuf. They offered her a film as a Heroine. Jabeen’s father had expired and only mother and younger brother were there. She accepted the offer. Her first film was Guzara in 1954. Her second film in 55 was Lutera. Her first hero was Karan Dewan and second was Nasir khan.
She became famous in New Delhi-56, in the role of Kishore’s sister Nikki’s role. She acted in 29 films, out of which 6 were unreleased. She also acted in 4 Punjabi films. She got a National award in 1962 for a Punjabi film in which her Hero was Prem Chopra.
She married Ashok Kak, a kashmiri Brahmin in 1968 and she did her last movie in 1974 Vachan. In 1989 they went to the US for 10 years and came back to Mumbai.Her son Divvij Kak is also an actor and Jabeen became a producer with Jabeen International.
She lives in Dadar, Mumbai nowadays.

Jabeen was a very short, thin and small frame girl. Some other actresses like her were Nimmi, Chand Usmani,and Smriti Biswas who all always looked like young girls.

The Hero of the film was Karan Dewan.

In Hindi films, there have been three actors who were very handsome and very lucky but zero in acting – Karan Dewan, Pradeep Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. They all appeared in leading roles opposite all leading actresses of their times. They had the best films, best songs and best roles. Karan Dewan had about 25 Silver Jubilees to his credit and was considered a lucky star. Bharat Bhushan had the most musical films to his credit like ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Shabaab’ (1954) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) etc. Pradeep Kumar had ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963).

All three had their brothers producing films for them. Gemini Dewan made films for Karan Dewan, R Chandra made films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas for Pradeep Kumar. Unfortunately, in later years, all three lost everything and died in poverty and neglectful anonymity. Karan Dewan was a manager with BR Chopra’s production company. When he died no one came for his funeral except for Chandrashekhar and Manmohan Krishan from the Cine Artists Association. Bharat Bhushan worked as a watchman in a film studio, in his last days. Even he died unsung and only the men from the Association were present at the cremation.

Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful.

Dewan Karan Chopra aka Karan Dewan ( 6-11-1917 to 2-8-1979 ) youngest of three brothers, was born at Gujranwala, Punjab (now in Pakistan), British India. He studied in Lahore, where he became interested in Journalism and started editing a film magazine in Urdu, Jagat Lakshmi. One of the local distributors he met was Tarachand Barjatya, who was then the Manager of Chandanmal Inder Kumar’s distribution office at Lahore. Through his connection with Barjatya he landed in Calcutta, and in 1939, made his acting debut as Puran in the Punjabi feature film Puran Bhagat

Dewan started his film career with the role of Puran in Puran Bhagat in Punjabi in 1939 in Calcutta. It was produced by Raisaheb Sukhlal Karnani and directed by Roop K. Shorey’s father R. L. Shorey. His second film Mera Maahi (1941) was also a Punjabi film, directed by Shankar Mehta at Lahore and starring Ragini and Manorama. This was the movie in which he sang songs for the first time in the movies under the baton of legendary music director Shyam Sunder. Later, in Rattan, he sang for the first time in Hindi movies for Naushad. B R Chopra, then working as a film journalist in Lahore, helped Karan Dewan to get in touch with Devika Rani, who invited Dewan to come to Bombay. When this did not help Dewan get films, he taught “Urdu pronunciation to actors and actresses”.

In 1944, Karan Dewan acted in Rattan, a musical romantic drama, directed by M. Sadiq, which became one of the most popular films of that year. “A tremendous hit”, it paired Dewan with Swarnalata. His decisive film was Rattan (1944), which was produced by his brother Jaimini Diwan, and this movie turned out to be the biggest hit of 1944. He also sang songs in this movie under music director Naushad, and his song “Jab Tum Hi Chale Pardes” became popular. He sang in films such as Piya Ghar Aaja (1947), Mitti Ke Khiloune (1948) and Lahore (1949). His other important films were Zeenat (1945), Lahore (1949), Dahej (1950), Bahar (1951) and Teen Batti Char Rasta (1953). Known as a “jubilee star”, about twenty of his films are stated to have been jubilee (twenty-five weeks or more) hits.

Dewan married co-actress Manju in 1944 following the release of Rattan, in which she had a character role. By 1966, he was working as a casting agent for the film unit of Maya (1966). He continued to work in the 1960s and 1970s playing supporting parts in films such as Apna Ghar (1960), Shaheed(1965), Jeene Ki Raah (1969) and Nadaan (1971), with the last film in which he was credited, being Sohanlal Kanwar’s Atmaram (1979).

He worked in 73 films and sang 18 songs in 9 films. He worked with all leading actresses of his times,including Noorjehan and Nargis. At the end of his career, however, he was down financially and had to work as a Manager with B R Chopra’s company. When he died, except two workers of the Cine artistes association, no one else from the Film industry was present.

Today’s song is the 3rd song from the film Guzara-1954. In the part 2 song you will be surprised to hear the voice of Pt.Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It sounds just like a girl’s voice. I was confused but on inquiry, our Sadanand Kamath ji confirmed that the voice was that of Hridaynath only. Enjoy…

Welcome all to this article which comes after my last post on 13th October in Remembrance of Kishore Kumar. In between I was supposed to send couple of articles which I could not do because of the project work now in full swing at site and we have to sometimes work for extended hours too. I was also trying to finish two of my earlier posts which got stuck up due to the same reason and then even though they were in my mind I was trying to get back to the rhythm to re-start and complete them.

Our Peevesie’s Mom generally mentions about the anniversaries of the artists and she also tries to keep sending posts for such occasions and simultaneously she also tries to combine anniversaries of various artists and anniversaries of our team members too. 🙂 Her last post on the blog was for celebrating our beloved Raja Saab’s birthday and of Raveena Tandon too.

Well the reason for today’s post is also a birth anniversary occasion which we missed and which even I was not aware till yesterday.

It so happened that after leaving the site (office) on Saturday afternoon me and my colleagues had to visit a nearby town around 40 kms from here to do some minor shopping and have a coffee at the only mall in the town. While travelling our drivers generally listen to the songs in local language here. And that triggers our mood too to listen Hindi songs. I keep my two pen drives full of HFM every time with me. After listening to many albums or Pancham we switched over to the nineties and to the songs of the movie ‘Maya Memsaab’ (1993). If anybody has listened to them might be aware that this movie had all good songs penned by Gulzar Saab. Lata Mangeshkar has sung four solo songs in this movie and all of them are very very nice compositions. And poetry of Gulzar Saab as usual is at his best in the songs of this movie.

The music for this movie is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. I had been listening to his compositions and many of his albums in Marathi are just pure classics and then in Hindi we had ‘Dhanwan’ (1981), ‘Mashaal’ (1984), ‘Lekin’ (1991). ‘Lekin’ is also one of my most favourite albums and I had sent a few of its songs to Atul ji when I was a newcomer on the blog, which are yet to be posted on the blog. 🙂

Well, it just piqued my interest to read about Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar since I immensely like his compositions – Marathi as well as Hindi and Non-filmy. As I for information about him I noticed that 26th October (26-10-1937) was his birth anniversary too.

I remember that our beloved Kamath Sir had written an article on him in details in 2012 on his birth anniversary with the song from the movie ‘Lekin’ – “Suniye Ji Araj Mhaaro“.

Later on, on Hridyanath ji’s birth anniversary in 2014, Atul ji has posted the song “O Baawri Re“, from the 1969 film ‘Prarthana’, shared by Prakash ji.

On the blog so far, we have the following songs of Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar represented as Composer/Singer;

Going by the details available on the internet sources, about his filmography I list the following movies where he has composed music, remaining yet to be represented on the blog,

‘Harishchandra Taramati’ (1970), ‘Chaani’ (1977), ‘Chakra’ (1980), ‘Ram Ki Ganga’ (1984), ‘Pyaari Bhabhi’ (1986), ‘Maya Memsaab’ (1993), ‘Laal Salaam’ (2002).

Today I present a song from the 1993 movie ‘Maya Memsaab’, which makes its debut on our blog. The film is produced and directed by Ketan Mehta. It has Shah Rukh Khan, Deepa Sahi, Raj Babbar, Farooq Shaikh, Paresh Rawal, Raghuveer Yadav and many others.

This movie had seven songs (including one multiple version song) penned by Gulzar. Music for this movie is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar, and Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Kumar Sanu and Lata Mangeshkar have given their voices to the songs in this movie. As mentioned above all songs in this movie are very nice and I like them very much. I had watched this movie then when it was released in 1993.

Today’ song is sung by Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar. A female voice accompanies him in this song. Although not credited, I think the voice is of S. Janaki. I request other listeners to please comment on this guess.

Incidentally, I was thinking to introduce this movie for Gulzar Saab’s birth anniversary in August (with the multiple version song) but could not do so. Later, when I was going through the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970), I came across the movie titled ‘Harishchandra Taramati’ (1970), I thought to do a post presenting this movie as I was doing earlier whenever I go through a HFGK Volume for first time and find something interesting. However, I could not write and share the posts then.

Now, though late by couple of days, I do not want to miss this opportunity of presenting this movie on the occasion of ‘birth anniversary’ of Pandit Hridaynath Mangeshkar. Hence, belatedly though wishing Pandit ji a ‘very Happy Birthday’ and a ‘healthy-peaceful-musical’ life ahead I wish to present this song sung by him.

I hope you will like and enjoy this song …

Song – Chaaya Jaagi. . . Chhaaya Jaagi. . . (Maya Memsaab) (1993) Singer – Hridyanath Mangeshkar, Unidentified Female Voice, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Hridyanath Mangeshkar
