ना जाने क्यों॰ ॰ ॰ होता है ये ज़िंदगी के साथ
अचानक ये मन
किसी के जाने के बाद
करे फिर उसकी याद॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, Shyama. . . the vivacious, bubbly, chirpy, charming Shyama. That is the image that the mind always carries, of this spirited young lady, so full of life on the screen. Some memories and some reflections are so firmly engraved in the mind that it simply does not register or acknowledge the passage of time and the passing of eras. That is the beauty of these memories – that their beauty simply never fades away.

My very first encounter with her was the song “Mujhe Mil Gaya Bahaana Teri Deed Ka” (film ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, 1960). I saw this song on Delhi TV, most probably in some edition of the Chitrahaar program. Shama (Shyama) is on screen with Shabaab (Ratna), her younger sister in the film. There is an exchange that leads to certain wrong impressions. Being secretly in love with Amaan (Bharat Bhushan), Shama interprets that conversation to be in her favour. And this happy song of an assumed fulfilment of love is the outcome. The expressions and the rendering of this love song trickled right into the mind and heart of a very young heart, and the lady on the screen became a favorite crush of mine.

A few years later, I would get a chance to see this complete film. And my heart was both joyous and asunder. I got to see more of her scintillating performance, especially the qawwaali “Ji Chaahta Hai Choom Loon Apni Nazar Ko Main”, in which she is brimming with excitement and delight. She makes you feel the thrill that she is experiencing, going in for the kill of the opposite party in the qawwaali competition. Her performance simply takes you along that joyous path of the victory of her singing group over that of Chand Khan’s (Khurshid Bawra’s) group. But then, I was also sad that in the final outcome, she is not the choice of the person she adores and worships. The film ends with her being the loser in the game of love. My heart wept for her, for her love was true and silent, and it made the sacrifice in face of knowing that her beau’s heart is smitten elsewhere. This film remains an all time favorite in my heart.

Then came other films, viewed some years later during college days. Films from the previous three decades were mostly showing as reruns in morning shows (9am to 12 am). We used to skip the morning classes in the college to go visit these unknown unseen films, for the love of that golden era. In that time, I would get to see ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Makkheechoos’ (1956), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Sharda’ (1957), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Zabak’ (1961) and many more. The ‘puppy’ crush was long over and done with, but Shyama was a favorite actress – always would be ready to go see an unseen film, especially if Shyama was part of the cast of actors.

She was born as Khursheed Akhtar, in Lahore. Her date of birth is stated differently in different online sources. The anniversaries table on our blog gives the date as 12th June of 1935. Cineplot gives the date as 7th June, 1935. In his book ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitaare’, Shri Sriram Tamrakar quotes her birth date as 12th July 1933. There are other sources which are at variance with these dates too.

When she was two years old, her family moved to Bombay. Her father was a fruit merchant and had set up a shop in Byculla. With seven siblings, Shyama was part of a large family. School and studies never did interest her. Right from childhood, being a star on the silver screen was her dream. As a child, she had seen a film starring Ishwarlal and Khursheed (the famous singer-actress). She was very impressed by Khursheed’s singing and her acting. On seeing this role, a resolve started to form in her to become an actor. [Ed Note: This picture possibly could be ‘Shaadi’ (1941) or ‘Chandni’ (1942).]

As a young girl, she was quite mischievous and full of pranks. Her elder sisters would admonish her for being such a tomboy. In her own words (from an interview on Cineplot) she says that she always wanted a hungama, indulge in a little romance. But she was very disciplined and cultured too. She never smoked, or drank all her life. And she never appeared in a swimsuit throughout her career. She was very true to her Muslim upbringing and family traditions.

In 1944/45 she and her sisters and friends, one day went to see the shooting of a film at a studio in Dadar (Bombay). The shooting of the film ‘Zeenat’ (1945) was in progress. The specific sequence being filmed was the now iconic all female qawwaali “Aahen Na Bharin, Shiqwe Na Kiye”. As luck would have it, Shaukat Hussain Rizvi, the director of the film, wanted to have more girls to join the singing group. He asked this group of onlooker young ladies whether they would like to join the filming of this song. Without hesitation, Khursheed raised her hand. Rizvi Sb picked her to join the group and play the dholak. In the video of this song, one can see her sitting in the second row behind the main singers, wearing a traditional cap, with a dholak in her lap. The young lady got a billing in the star credits as Baby Khursheed. She was just about 10 years old.

Her father was very upset that his daughter had made this impromptu decision, and was set against her joining films. However, her mother and her sisters prevailed upon him and calmed him to get his consent to permit her to work in films. So out went the school and studies, and the little Khurshid started her career doing child roles and extras. By her own estimates, she probably has appeared 80 films in which she was just an extra or a chorus girl.

‘Nai Maa’ is a 1946 film, which Shyama herself indicates as being her first formal role as a child star. The film is from the banner of Prakash Pictures – the production house of the Bhatt brothers – Vijay and Shankar Bhai. With the consideration that there already were two actresses named Khursheed in the industry, Vijay Bhatt suggested for her to change her name to avoid same-name-confusions. He thought of the name ‘Shyama’. The young Khursheed happily took it on, and this name turned to be her career and her destiny.

Getting seriously into small roles as a child and a teenage artist, she did two very important things. One, she refused to be disheartened by the long succession of bit-roles and being a supporting cast member. Two, she took on to get trained in music and dance, and spent a good slice of her developmental years under the tutelage of the famous Badri Prasad, the multi-talented artist active in the industry at that time. Her perseverance paid off. Her roles started to get more prominent, and her co-stars the more famous ones. She appeared as the younger sister to KL Saigal in ‘Parwaana’ (1947). The same year, she also appeared as the younger sister of Motilal in ‘Beete Din’. On to 1949, and she was now the younger sibling of actor Shyam in the film ‘Kaneez’.

In 1950, she got a very prominent role as the wayward younger sister of Shyam and Karan Dewan in the film ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’. The title role was played by Nargis (paired with Karan Dewan), but the role played by Shyama was pivotal as the rebellious daughter in the family, who is on the verge of eloping with Yakub, a self serving con-man. Then came 1951 – she was paired as the love interest of Balraj Sahni in ‘Hum Log’; and the same year, she got to play a prominent role in ‘Taraana’ as the third part of the love triangle completed by Dilip Kumar and Madhubala.

It was in 1952 that she was able to belie the popular adage in the industry – ‘once an extra, always and extra’. But this graduation was not without its moments of anxiety and a heart stopping near miss. IS Johar was looking for an effervescent and a lively young new face as the lead for his maiden directorial venture – ‘Shrimati Ji’. Familiar with Shyama and her capabilities from their earlier films together viz., ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’ (1950) and ‘Ek Teri Nishaani’ (1949), Johar chose Shyama from a list of over 100 candidates for the role. Shyama was excited and happy with this groundbreaking development in her career.

But a scare was still in store, and the career that we see, was almost never. A couple of reels had been shot. One day on the studio floor, one of the financiers was present. On seeing Shyama, he made a curt remark that this girl is too thin to impress in a leading role, and walked away. One can imagine the turmoil that followed, with doubts appearing in the minds of the entire team. Shyama herself notes that she went home and cried all night – here was a once in a lifetime break that suddenly became so close to slip out of her fingers. After the crying session was over, she pulled herself together and made a resolve to address even this issue. Next day, she went out to seek medical help. Whoever would think of a thing like a diet to ‘gain’ weight? She went on a crash diet to do exactly this – gain weight. In a short period of time, she gained a reasonable amount of weight, and went right back in to complete the film.

One more significant episode occurred in the year 1951. Shyama was filming for ‘Sazaa’; she was the second lead to Nimmi and again, the third vertex of the love triangle that includes Dev Anand and Nimmi. The director and cinematographer of this film was Fali Mistry. Affections developed between the two, and two got married. Her family would have preferred a Muslim son-in-law. Fali Mistry being a Parsi, her father did not accept her new venture in life. She did get support from her mother, who was present at the small and quiet ceremony for the wedding. Her father  did not communicate with her for years. Shyama mentions in her interview that the ice between them was eventually broken when she gave birth to her first son, and went to him to get his blessings.

One of the understandings between Shyama and Fali was that she would continue to work in films. Apparently there were other suitors also, but as per herself, the proposals did not go further because the gentlemen did not agree to allow her to continue her work.

Through the 1950s, as well as early sixties, Shyama was in the top bracket of leading ladies in Hindi cinema. A golden period in her career, her popularity can be gauged by the fact that 82 of her films were released in the period from 1952 to 1960. In 1954 alone, 14 of her films came on the silver screen, and 13 in the year 1955. In all 27 films in a period of two consecutive years is a record in itself. An interesting aspect of her career has been that while she was in demand as the leading lady, she continued to do all kinds of roles, including second lead and even as a vamp. By her own admission, she was never too much hung up on being the leading lady, but was always more interested in the content of the role. In fact her only Filmfare award is for her performance in ‘Sharda’ in 1957 – as the best female actor in a supporting role. In the later part of 1960s, she transitioned into character roles and continued to work till the end of 1980s. Her last film as a character artist is ‘Hathyaar’ released in 1989.

Fali Mistry passed away unexpectedly in 1979, leaving behind a family of two sons and one daughter.

In the past 3, 4 days I was in travel myself, and was disconnected from the net for part of that time. Settling back after returning, as I processed through the email backlog, I got to see this message from Harish Raghuvanshi ji, informing about the sad demise of Shyama. She was 82, and as per her latest interviews some years back, she was quite satisfied with the full life she had led, and with her accomplishments on the silver screen.

As I sorted through the list of her songs as yet unpublished on our blog, searching for an appropriate song for this tribute, I came across this chirpy and playful song from the film ‘Ghar Basaa Ke Dekho’ from 1963. I had not heard it before. As I played this song, it struck me as so much Shyama herself, and I knew this is the song so suitable to go along with the write up about her. On screen, she leads the singing and dancing within a group of friends. Some of the faces are familiar, but I am unable to place any names. I request our knowledgeable readers and friends to help identify other actresses supporting Shyama in this song.

The words are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and the lilting music comes from the mind of Chitragupt. The singing voices are of Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Shyama gets to lip sync most of the lines of Suman Kalyanpur, and the lines sung by Usha Mangeshkar are shared between more than one of the supporting ladies on screen.

A wonderful expression of a philosophy of life, that one can surmise from her interviews, was very dear to Shyama herself. The thought behind the bubbly vivacity in this song is just the same thought that first made her raise her hand unhesitatingly to Rizvi Sb’s query on who would like to join the filming of the group song (qawwaali song in ‘Zeenat’). That is Shyama.

Or to put it more correctly now – that was Shyama. Only the memories remain now.

bichhad kar chale jaao hum se kahin
magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin

magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin . . .

Dear Shyama, RIP – Rest In Playfulness, Always 🙂

zindagi teri ek hulchul hai

ik jagah par qayaam kya karna
har chaman tera aashiaana hai
ek pal bhi na fikr mein beete
muskuraata ja geet gaata ja
aur duniya jo raah mein aaye
ek thokar usey lagaata ja
jidhar jee mein aaya
jidhar jee mein aaya
udhar hum chale
hamen duniya se kya
wo marey ya jaley
wo marey ya jaley
hamen duniya se kya
wo marey ya jaley

जिनकी क़िस्मत में ऐश लिखी है
ऐश करते हैं और जीते हैं
जिनकी क़िस्मत में ऐश लिखी है
ऐश करते हैं और जीते हैं
आह भरना है जिनकी क़िस्मत में
आह भरते हैं अशक पीते हैं
ज़िंदगी क्या है एक हंगामा
एक हंगामा रोज़ हो जाये
कहकहों के बगैर क्या जीना
ज़िंदगी कहकहों में खो जाये
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले

आदमी को मिली हैं क्यों आँखें
देख ले जिस कदर नज़ारे हैं
आदमी को मिली हैं क्यों आँखें
देख ले जिस कदर नज़ारे हैं
बाग तेरा हैं फूल तेरे हैं
और तेरे ही चाँद तारे हैं
ज़िंदगी नाम हैं बहारों का
हम बहारों का रस निचोड़ेंगे
ज़िंदगी एक बार मिलती है
एक अरमान भी ना छोड़ेंगे
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले

ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
इक जगह पर क़याम क्या करना
हर चमन तेरा आशियाना है
एक पल भी ना फिक्र में बीते
मुसकुराता जा गीत गाता जा
और दुनिया जो राह में आए
एक ठोकर उसे लगाता जा
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले

# Superstar Child Artist – Junior Mehmood # 3
—————————————————-

Welcome back all to this series where we are discussing songs from movies of Junior Mehmood and particularly those songs where he is seen performing whilelip syncing in the voices of various playback singers.

I started this series with songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood. And so far in this series the following two posts have been posted on the blog;

1) Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey (Rivaaz)(1972)

2) Na Koi Paisa Na Ilm Banaao Bambai Mein Film (Bansi Birju) (1972)

This third post is a delayed one. It is not just delayed but it comes after a long gap (almost two and half years).
And though I thought then(i.e. by Nov-2015) that I would conclude the series within a year then ,now this series stands extended and I intend to include a few more songs in this series that are sung by other singers for Junior Mehmood. (By doing so I also intend to find out the total number of songs lip synced by him).

Jr. Mehmood started his acting career at the age of eight. Unfortunately, the very first film which he got a chance to work in ‘Kitna Nazook Hai Dil’ (as mentioned by Junior Mehmood himself in an interview available on YT and other sources too) never got released and was shelved.

There are intereting stories about how Junior Mehmood got a chance to work in films and how he got this name ‘Junior Mehmood’. He himself narrated this tale in his interviews available on YT.

His real name is Naeem Sayyad and he was born (on 15th November’1956) to a ‘middle class’ family living in Mumbai.
His father was an Engine Driver in railways and the family used to live in the railway quarters at Antop Hill Mumbai (as mentioned in the biography of Jr Mehmood available on YT). There were six siblings – four brothers and two sisters, including himself.

His elder brother used to do photography on film sets and would share the happenings on the films sets among family members which little Naeem would listen with interest. His eagerness to watch film shootings made him visit the sets of a movie with his brother.

During one such occasion when a child artist working in this movie ‘Kitna Nazook Hai Dil’ was not able to remember and deliver a dialogue, little Naeem watching the shoot from the crowd reacted ‘kya itni si line nahin bol sakta’ 😊

The director of the movie took a look at him and asked little Naeem if he could deliver the dialogue and perform. He immediately accepted the challenge and delivered a flawless performance which impressed everybody present on the sets. And soon news about the ‘potential’ this little child spread in the film industry by ‘word of mouth’.

While watching film personalities on sets little Naeem started mimicking various actors /artists and performing dance numbers picturised on them. ‘Gumnaam-1965’ – ‘ham kaale hain to kya huaa dilwaale hain’ …was one of the most popular dance numbers that he used to perform on.

Little Naeem thus started receiving offers to act in movies as a ‘child artist’.

He got an opportunity to work with the great actor Mehmood in the movie ‘Suhaag Raat-1968’. During the shooting of this film he got a chance to work and interact with Mehmood who was also impressed by the potentialof little Naeem.

It so happened that Mehmood Senior was to celebrate the first birthday of his daughter Jinny and he invited almost all present on the sets of ‘Suhaag Raat-1968’ except little Naeem. Little Naeem was hurt a lot and he told Mehmood Saab that since his father was not a big film personality he (Mehmood Saab) had not invited him. Going further he also told Mehmood that given a chance to perform in this party he will definitely ‘rock’ the party – aapki poori party hilaa doonga – by peforming on Mehmood’s own ‘ham kaale hain to …’.

His performance in this party left everyone amazed and Mehmood called his father and advise him to send little Naeem for training and guidance under him. Mehmood also named him as ‘Junior Mehmood’.

Thus started the ‘era’ of ‘Junior Mehmood’ in Hindi movies and he entertained people for almost five-six years if we consider his golden period in Hindi Movies.

His first released film was ‘Naunihaal-1967’.

(The complete list of his movies/filmography needs to checked and authenticated to have accurate number of movies if we need to discuss them year wise.)

In the ‘1968 movie – Brahmachari’ he performed on Mehmood’s famous ‘ham kaale hain to kya huaa dilwaale hain’ from ‘Gumnaam-1965’’.

It was after ‘Brahmachari’ that he shot to fame and his career took off in Hindi movies and he became the most loved child artist of those years if not for the entire decade.

He was among those few personalities who possesed the prized the imported car (Impala) in Bombay during those years. He was only eleven years old at that time (as told by him in this interview here)

For today’s post initially, I had decided to present a song sung by Rafi Saab and even got uploaded one of the songs that was not available there on YT, but while I going through the filmography of Junior Mehmood I discovered some more songs including this song under discussion that I was not aware of till a couple of weeks back.

So, I decided to introduce this song from the late sixties, as the other songs from the later years can always be discussed later (since nowadays we are still in the ‘Fabulous Years 1941-50’ on the blog and even introducing some of the rare gems from this period, so we still have a long way to go and many songs to be discussed …)

Further, when I went through the list of movies of Junior Mehmood mentioned in the ‘filmography’ on various sources I foundnd that many of his movies are not mentioned in this list. So, I have decided to go through HFGK to check and update his list of movies till 1980 at least which will require a lot of time and during this process we can always discuss the remaining songs along with the details of his ‘filmography’.

Today’s song is sung by Shanti Mathur and composed by Dattaram.
Lyrics of this song are written by Bharat Vyas.

One song from this movie ‘Baalak-1969’ was posted on the blog on 02.10.2012.

Today (15 november 2017), on the occasion of the 61st birth anniversary of Junior Mehmood we wish him a very happy birthday and a healthy and entertaining life ahead.

Let us now enjoy this song where Junior Mehmood can be seen playing a ‘bigdaa huaa shaitaan bachchaa’ …

(the video link available on YT seems to have been edited and also have some lines missing, hence an audio link of the full song has been uploaded)

मेरा नाम है महमूद

पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद

मेरा नाम है महमूद
रहता हर जगह मौजूद
पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद

लंगडा मिल जाए तो उसकी टांग तोड़ दूं
अंधा मिल जाए तो उसकी आँख फोड़ दूं
सामने हो कोई भी बन्दूक छोड़ दूं
आंटी हो या अंकल मैं गर्दन मरोड़ दूं
मैं गर्दन मरोड़ दूं
मेरा नाम है महमूद
रहता हर जगह मौजूद
पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद

कोई मुझे लफंगा कहता
कोई कहे मवाली
लेकिन मैं तो गाता रहता
भजन और क़व्वाली
पीठ पे लादे गधे का बोझा
कौन स्कूल को जाए
हम तो माँ के पेट से सारी
विद्या सीख के आये
हो सारी विद्या सीख के आये
है मेरा नाम है महमूद
रहता हर जगह मौजूद
पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद

जितने जहां में उल्लू के पठ्ठे हो गए
सारे के सारे वो यहाँ इकठ्ठे हो गए
क्या हो गयी खराब है तबियत आप कि
या शादी हैं यहाँ पे कोई
मेरे बाप कि
अरे मेरे बाप कि
मेरा नाम है महमूद
रहता हर जगह मौजूद
पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद

मेरा नाम है महमूद
रहता हर जगह मौजूद
पीता रहता हूँ बीडी
खाता रहता हूँ अमरुद
मेरा नाम हैं महमूद
