Ah, the crisp voice of Kamal Barot. A sound that is so unique, and then so attractive, in certain scenarios. Granted that this voice may not exhibit as wide a range as some of her more successful peers, but the concern also works the other way round. That the voice, and some more like hers, did not get enough opportunity to develop more. We do find examples of her songs in all genres – except maybe having sung some sort of a cabaret song for Helen. Alas, it was an era dominated by few. And maybe that is what life is about – circumstances and relationships many a time define success, more than talent does.

A little over three weeks ago, Kamal Barot’s first non film song was posted on these pages –“Ye Haseen Taare Teri Yaad Dilaa Dete Hain”. The post was followed with comments from readers, with requests for other non film songs from the same singer. The song in this post was specifically requested, as it had been by AK ji, in his earlier communications.

The world of non-film songs is altogether another dimension that is both very prolific, as well as very endearing. If we try to go after the non film domain, it would definitely turn out to be many times bigger than the film song domain. Rightly so, because in that domain there are no limits other than that the song does not belong to any film. On this blog, we are showcasing the non film genre also. But we are following an unstated selection criteria – that the singer(s) and or creators of the non film songs are otherwise associated with films. This criteria makes the expanse of the non film songs being covered (on this blog), both manageable and familiar.

The film titled ‘Baadshah’ (1964) was produced under the banner of Navkala Niketan, with Dara Singh and Nishi in lead roles. The film is a costume action drama, set in an unspecified time period, with all the regular components of palaces, kings, court dances, royal intrigues, and since Dara Singh in the hero – it also has feats of strength and hand to hand combat.

The title “Shaahi Lutera” appears to be quite a popular title for B grade movie makers. The first such title appeared in 1935. The next “Shaahi Lutera” was released two decades later in 1965, and another one in 1976. Considering the paucity of authentic information available about old movies in general and B grade movies in particulr, i is very easy to get facts about them mixed up. I have, for instance seen the songs of “Shaahi Lutera” (1965) being mixed up with songs of “Shaahi Lutera” (1976) in sites who in any case do not seem willing and /or capable of ensuring authenticity of information ( if any )being dished out.

The star lineup includes Balraj Sahni, Shashikala, Leela Chitnis, Jagdeep, Ameeta, Asit Set, Mumtaz Begum, Padma Devi, Narmada Shankar, Amarnath etc. The lyricist Gulshan Bawra also plays a comic role. In the film, there are two children lost as small kids. A child of a low caste family is lost in the river, and when rescued, he is adopted by a rich high caste family. And a child of the high caste family is lost, and ends up being adopted by Leela Chitnis, the same person who lost her son in the river. There are various sub plots as the romantic interests of two couples, Balraj Sahni and Shashikala, and Jagdeep and Ameeta, are interwined with the destinies of three families.
