There are many lyricists who joined Hindi film industry since the talkies came into being. While some of them became famous, many remained in the background though some of them were connected with the film industry for a considerable length of time. The result is we do not have much information about the latter category of lyricists as far as their their detailed profiles are concerned. In this category, the names of Dr. Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, Rammurti Chaturvedi, Bhutaram Sharma, Shams Lucknowi, Kaif Irfani, Shevan Rizvi and many more come to my mind. Among the ‘many mores’ is the lyricist Aziz Kashmiri about whom very little is known of his life before he joined Hindi film industry.

Whenever I listen to songs rendered by Hafeez Khan Mastana, popularly known as Khan Mastana, I feel very sad and sorry for him. He was the son of Ustad Waheed Khan of Etawah Gharana who was a well-known sitar and surbahar player. The renowned sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan was Khan Mastana’s first cousin.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 40
——————————————-
MOHABBAT KI JEET (1943) was produced under the banner of Girdhar Bahaar Productions and it was directed by Ramanlal Desai. The star cast included Nadia, Navinchandra, Leela Pawar, S Nazir, Shaqir, Agha, Munshi Kanzar, Vasantrao Pehlwan etc. From the star cast it can be safely assumed that the film belonged to the genre of stunt/action. I have no idea about the story of the film. But Nadia being the heroine in the film, one can expect that the story of the film would revolve around her role of striking out the forces of evil and restore goodness to the society. She would generally attain this by doing spectacular stunts and acrobatics which would please the front benchers in the theatres.

There are instances of Hindi film artists, especially of the 30s to 50s who rose to great heights in their filmy career but died as paupers and penniless. For instance, Chandramohan, the most handsome actor of his time who captivated the audience with his acting prowess (and also with his eyes) in films like ‘Amritmanthan’ (1934), ‘Pukar’ (1941), ‘Roti’ (1942), ‘Humaayun’ (1945) and ‘Shaheed’ (1948) died in 1949 in acute poverty at a young age of 44. It is said that his funeral expenses were borne by his close friend Motilal. But after 16 years of Chandramohan’s death, Motilal also died in 1965 almost penniless.

In recent years, there has been a trend in Hindi film industry to make sequels of the box office hit films. Sequel films are said to be comparatively risk free as the success formula has already been tested. The earliest sequel film that I spotted on the internet was ‘Hunterwali Ki Beti’ (1943) which was supposed to be a follow-up of ‘Hunterwali’ (1935). I doubt whether the maker (Wadia brothers) of these two films ever thought in terms of a sequel but the story of the later film seems to be a follow up of the first film. Fearless Nadia (real name Marry Ann Evans) the first stunt heroine in the Indian film industry, John Cawas and Bhoman Shroff were part of the cast in both these films which were box office hits.
