This archtypical “social” movie had the usual fare typical of movies made in the South.

Here is the eighth and final song from “Khandaan”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Usha Mangeshkar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a synchronised stage dance performance song on Helen and Jeewankala. Their energetic dance performance is bound to recharge the spirits of the watchers even today, 55 years after this video was first witnessed by moviegoers in moviehalls. Watching this performance made me realise that performing such dances were the secret behind the figures of these dancers. 🙂

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

With this song, all the eight songs of “Khandaan”(1965) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day :

4454 Post No. : 15921

In my last three articles, I have discussed Hindi film dancers, Mohana Cabral, Sheila Vaz and Minu Mumtaz. One common factor in all the three dancers was that they had active Hindi film careers of around 5-6 years after which they got married and quit Hindi films when they had not even attained 25 years of age. They took the responsibilities as house-wives and lived happily with more or less the same level of comfort and life style as they would have got had they continued their filmy careers. To this list of three Hindi film dancers, I am adding one more dancer who also quit Hindi films after her active years of Hindi film career during 1960-66. The name of the dancer is Jeevankala. She got married in 1969 when she was 25.

I got background information on Jeevankala from her two interviews – one in 1964 which was published in ‘Picture Post’ magazine and republished in ‘Cineplot’ on January 1, 2012. The other interview was of recent origin which was taken by Shishir Krishna Sharma in December 2018 and published in his Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on March 31, 2020. Based on these two interviews, the main highlights of the profile of Jeevankala and her journey with Hindi film industry are given below:

Jeevankala (also written as Jeevan Kala) was born on June 29, 1944 at Pune to Dattatreya and Gangubai who were actors in silent films and later in Marathi films when sound films started in 1931. However, after Jeevankala was born, the parents gave up their film career. Incidentally, the name, ‘Jeevankala’ was suggested by her neighbour, Lata Mangeshkar. Jeevankala did her primary schooling in Pune. Simultaneously, knowing his daughter’s interest in dances, the father put her under the tutelage of Babsaheb Gokhale for Kathak dance and Professor Gaekwad for Bharatnatayam dance for a period of 7 years. Later, she learnt all other formats of dances by herself.

In 1957, Jeevankala’s family shifted to Mumbai as she got a job of assiatant dance teacher in Bharatiya Vidhya Bhawan and taught Kathak dance to students. She was also participating in Lata Mangeshkar’s musical shows in Mumbai in which she used to give her dance recitals. She also attended the night school and completed her Matric in 1960.

In one of Jeevankala’s dance recitals, producer-director K Amarnath saw her skill in dancing and offered her a role of a dancer in his film, ’Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) in which she had two dance songs. However, she also said that ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) was her debut film in which a song “Akhiyaan Bhool Gayi Hain Sona” was picturised on her. [As per her filmography, she had already acted in 8 films during 1956-58. I will come to it later].

After she was noticed in her dance skills in ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959) and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala started getting many films offers. Starting as a dancer, over a period of time, she started getting character actor’s roles and also romantic roles pairing with comedians. She also got the role of a vamp in ‘Mr. X in Bombay’ (1964) and ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968).

In 1969, Jeevankala got married to Ram Kelkar, the story, screen-play and dialogue writer in Marathi films. It was a marriage arranged by Sulochana Latkar who was like ‘God Mother’ to her after the death of her mother in 1965. After marriage, Jeevankala quit the film industry. Her husband, Ram Kelkar became a successful story, screen-play and dialogue writers for Hindi films like ‘Beimaan’ (1972), ‘Aap Ki Kasam’ (1974), ‘Sanyaasi’ (1975), Kaalicharan’ (1976), ‘Asha’ (1980), ‘Hero’ (1983), ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), ‘Khalnaayak’ (1993) etc.

On the basis of Jeevankala’s filmography checked from the various sources, I have been able to list 110 Hindi films in which she worked during 1956 to 1968. A few films of her were released late up to 1974. Her active years of film career was during 1960-1966, appearing in 70 films. In the 1964 interview, Jeevankala gave the impression of ‘Kal Hamara Hai’ (1959) as her first Hindi film and in the 2018 interview, she mentioned ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959) as her debut film. It is interesting to note that in ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnai’ (1959), Jeevankala has not been accredited in the credit titles of the film. But she appears in one song of the film.

A further interesting observation about Jeevankala’s filmography is that before 1959, she had worked in as many as 8 films which include ‘Alam Ara’ (1956), ‘Paristaan’ (1957), ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958) and ‘Detective’ (1958). In ‘Khota Paisa’ (1958), a dance song “O Jaan e Jaan Muddat Ke Baad” has been picturised on her.

Jeevankala, who started with big banners film producing companies like Prakash Pictures’ ‘Goonj Uthi Shahnai’ (1959) and K Amarnath Productions’ ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ (1959), drifted into ‘B’ grade movies in the genres of fantasy, action, costume drama, thriller etc. In such films, heroes would be like Sheikh Mukhtar, Ranjan, Daljeet, Dara Singh and heroines would be like Chitra, Vijaya Chowdhary, Parveen Chowdhary, Nishi etc. Of course, she also continued to be associated with big banner films like ‘China Town’ (1962), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965), ‘Khandaan’ (1965), ‘Himalaya Ki God Mein’ (1965), ‘Saawan Ki Ghata’ (1966), ‘Saraswatichandra’ (1968) etc.

Jeevankala has also worked in some Marathi films. In ‘Putra Whava Aisa’ (1961), she was in lead role opposite Vivek in which an immortal song,  जिथे सागरा धरणी मिळते beautifully rendered by Suman Kalyanpur was picturised on Jeevankala. A laavani  song, रेशमाच्या रेघांनी, लाल काळया धाग्यांनी from ‘Marathi Tituka Melwava’ (1964) was also picturised on Jeevankala as a laavani dancer.

In the interview of December 2018, Jeevankala has claimed that about 70 songs have been picturised on her. Our Blog has covered 38 songs picturised on her and 17 songs, the video clips of which are available on video sharing platforms are yet to be covered on the Blog. Thus, the total songs picturised on Jeevankala works out to 55. In addition, there could be a few more of her songs for which video clips are not available as some of her films are not traceable as of now.

During the listing of songs picturised on Jeevankala, I came across an obscure  film ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965) (In the credit titles it is written as ‘पंच-रतन’ in Hindi) which was directed by Kamran. The star cast consisted of Randhawa, Parveen Chowdhary, Kamran, Kamal Mehra, Amarnath, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Sadhana Khote, Jeevankala, Laxmi Chhaya, Meenaxi, Aruna etc. The full film is available for viewing in HD quality and it belongs to the ‘Action-Costume Drama’ genre. Probably, this film was meant for those audience who used to enjoy wrestling bouts between Dara Singh, King Kong and others in the 60s at Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Stadium, Worli in Mumbai. In addition, there are sword fights in the film for such audience.

The film has 5 songs written by 2 lyricists – Anjaan (4) and Upendra (1). I am presenting the song, “Kya Ho. . . Kahin Miley Do Nigaahen” from ‘Panch Ratan’ (1965). The song is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur and Kamal Barot and is picturised on Laxmi Chhaya and Jeevankala, respectively. In the audience, Parveen Chowdhary,  Randhawa, Kamal Mehra, Meenaxi and Shyam Kumar can be seen among others.

The song is written by Anjaan which is set to music by Sardar Malik.

dil mein bhi bachpana ho
aisi naazuk ghadi mein
unse jo saamna ho
dil dagaa

kahin miley do nigaahen
phir kya ho
haay kya ho
tumhen kaise samjhaayen phir kya ho
puchho na
jaan e jaan

क्या हो
हाय क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें
फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
हाय क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो

जब जवां हसरतों का
जाम हो छलका छलका
डमगाते हों अरमां
हो नशा हल्का हल्का
ऐसे में
जब कोई
देख ले
प्यार से
फिर क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो

हो समा आशिक़ाना
दिल में भी बचपना हो
ऐसी नाज़ुक घड़ी में
उनसे जो सामना हो
दिल दगा
दे हमें
धड़कनें
जाएँ थम
फिर क्या हो
कहीं मिलें दो निगाहें फिर क्या हो
अरे क्या हो
तुम्हें कैसे समझाएँ फिर क्या हो
पूछो ना
जान ए जां
बात है
राज़ की
हाय क्या हो
