Today’s song is from film ‘Geeta’ (1940), which makes a debut on our Blog. The song is sung by Baby Suman, who too makes a debut here. The lyricist is SK Kalla and the composer is DP Korgaonkar aka K Datta.

When silent films started in India, the types of films that were made were fixed. It started with Mythological stories and ended with Parsee folk fantasy or action films. Slowly and steadily, as the film industry got stabilized with firm studio culture, producers started handling different themes like Historical, Religious, Social etc. Major film companies like Prabhat, Ranjit, Bombay Talkies and New Theatres tried to focus on social issues and social reforms like alcoholism, widow marriage, dowry, untouchability etc. in the films. Till about late 1930s, crime stories did not find patronage from the film makers.

In 1940, the first film to stress and emphasize the bad effects of crime and gambling, through a crime story mixed with social theme was made. This was Circo Productions’ film ‘Geeta’. It was the first ever film, which used the formula “Crime does not pay”. It was the first film in which one actor had done a double role of father and son. It was the first film, in which there was a tussle between a criminal brother and a brother who was on the side of the law. This was also the first film in which the mother testifies in the court against her criminal son, to punish him. This was the first film, in which Durga Khote started acting Mother’s role, bringing her career as a heroine to a close.

This was the beginning of a New Era, but the unsuspecting film industry did not recognise it. In the subsequent years and decades, the principle of “Crime does not pay” was used in several films – like ‘Kismet’ (1943) and ‘Sangram’ (1950). Even the remakes of ‘Geeta’ were made in the 1950s and the 1970s. The theme was used in a number of films.

Till the 40s, double role in films was rare and still a novelty. Actually, the first double role in a Talkie film was in ‘Aawara Shehzada’ (1933). This film was based on the popular Mark Twain novel of 1881 – The Prince and the Pauper. Surprisingly, the first film on this novel was made in India. Hollywood followed much later with Warner Brothers’ film of the same name in 1937. Instead of double role of one actor , they used two actors who were twins- Billy and Bobby Mauch for the two roles. In Hindi ‘Awara Shehzada’, the double role was done by Shahu Modak and the film was directed by Master Vithal, India’s first hero of the talkie films. Later, ‘Raja Aur Rank’ (1968), featuring Mahesh Kumar was made based on this story.

In film ‘Geeta’, Chandramohan was the hero and had done the father and son double role. This was a bilingual film in Hindi and Marathi, and in both versions, Chandramohan was the Hero. Earlier, V Shantaram had given a break to Chandramohan in his film ‘Amrit Manthan’ (1934), which also was a bilingual film in Hindi and Marathi. Chandramohan being a Kashmiri and not knowing Marathi, in the Marathi version, his role of Rajguru was done by Keshavrao Datey.

However. soon Chandramohan picked up fluent Marathi and acted in the bilingual films of Hindi and Marathi like, ‘Jwaala’ (1938), ‘Geeta’ (1940) and ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942). He became the first hindi actor to do roles in Marathi films.

The one line story of the film is “If father is a criminal and influences his son, so too becomes criminal”. In other words ‘parvarish’ or bringing up is important. Chandramohan’s brother’s role in the film was done by Trilok Kapoor. Trilok Kapoor became favourite ‘Mahadev’ of India after his film ‘Har Har Mahadev’ (1950) became a hit all over the country. His role in ‘Geeta’ was that of a sincere and law abiding Public Prosecutor, who in the final scene asks for death sentence for his criminal brother! Shades of this in ‘Deewar’ (1975) – the mother too joins the good brother, becoming a witness against the criminal son.

Durga Khote had done the roles of wife and mother in this film. This was the end of her career as a heroine and start of her character roles, ending her 8 years of being a heroine. Young Chandramohan’s role was done by Anant Marathe. He became an all India famous classical singer in later period. Vatsala Kumthekar played the role of a Kothewali (which she was actually, before joining films). She was Sundari – the prostitute friend of young Mohan. Her younger sister – Lata’s role was done by Ashalata (Mehrunnisa Moosa Bhagat in reality). In real life, she was wife of the composer Anil Biswas in this period.

The real sister of Vatsala Kumthekar was also in this film, but she played a different role in the film. She might be about 12 year old that time. She was Baby Suman. She was also a good singer, being from a singers’ family. She has sung few songs in this film. In absence of information about songs in HFGK, we do not know, which song was sung by whom. From the information I secured, she had sung atleast 2 songs in the film. One was solo (today’s song) and one as a duet with Harish. This Baby Suman was very beautiful. When she grew up and was about 19-20 year old, she was infatuated with composer C Ramchandra. As per CR’s autobiography, once she fell very sick with high fever and started taking CR’s name in stupor. Her sister Vatsala came running to CR telling him that Baby Suman was in deep love with him and was taking his name in high fever stupor. CR suspected this as a trap and refused to get involved telling the fact that he was recently married to his lady love Ratan Thakur (aka Ben) and that he loved his wife. Vatsala was very angry and left cursing him. Later, it seems Suman got married to some rich person and left film line.

In a way film ‘Geeta’ was a landmark film, because it opened up a new genre of crime films mixed with social themes. This was soon followed by film ‘Kismet’ (1943) and later by film ‘Sangram’ (1950). Minoo Katrak was a famous sound recordist in later years of the 60s and 70s. At this time he was a writer and had written the story for this film. Screenplay and direction was by Parshwanath Altekar. This may be a new name to most readers. Here is his brief bio sketch adapted from the book ‘The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema’….

 

Parshwanath Yeshwant Altekar (1897-1957) – Mainly Marathi director born in Kharepatan, Ratnagiri. Also worked in Hindi, Tamil and Kannada cinema. Educated in Kolhapur and obtained arts degree from Wellington College in Sangli. Studied law in Bombay but turned to the theatre, acting in the first play he directed, ‘Rajsanyas’, in 1922. Marathi writer Mama Warerkar influenced Altekar’s theatrical work as well as his shift to films, later providing songs and dialogues for the director’s ‘Geeta’. Film début in Joshi’s ‘Prithvi Vallabh’.

The following year (1925) he joined the United Pics. Syndicate where he played a series of major roles in Maratha historicals: Hansaji in ​Sarpotdar’s Chandrarao More and the title role in Chhatrapati Sambhaji (Altekar later remade the film in Marathi with Master Vithal). Acted in and was associated with the making of Sarpotdar’s seminal realist experiment Maharachi Por (1925), conjoining film, journalism and the avant garde theatre movement, a mix that later culminated in the work of the Natyamanwantar group. Also played the role of Prithviraj in Deccan’s Prabhavati. Joined the ​Pendharkar brothers’ Vande Mataram Films, acting in and, according to some sources, helping to direct their controversial Vande Mataram Ashram. Turned director at United Pics with the mythological ‘Jugari Dharma’, also playing the role of Bhim.

In 1928, he went to Imperial Films, making four films, e.g. ‘Jagadguru Shrimad Shankaracharya’, which featured his future theatre associate K. Narayan Kale as actor, and ‘Gori Bala’, scripted by Warerkar. Worked for Torney’s Saraswati Cinetone (1933) while continuing his work in the theatre with Radio Stars and the Natyamanwantar group. Directed the first Kannada sound feature, ​Bhakta Dhruva, from a Ratnavali Theatre play. After a stint at Master Vinayak’s Huns Pics (e.g. the Khandekar script ‘Sukhacha Shodh’) and CIRCO Films (‘Geeta’, featuring Chandramohan in a double role; ​Mahatma Vidur with Vishnupant Pagnis and Durga Khote), he became an independent producer with his own Natraj Cinetone partnered by Durga Khote, Govindrao Tembe, Mubarak et al., making the important Tembe-Khote musical ‘Savangad’i. Made three Tamil films (‘Parvati Kalyanam’, ‘Pati Bhakti’, ‘Bhishma Pratigna’, all 1936).

Started a theatre training school (1938) and soon stopped making films, devoting his energies to theatre work. His films often continued his experiments with naturalist theatre for Natyamanwantar, Radio Stars and his repertory National Theatre Academy, for which he wrote several essays on the theory of stage performance in the Marathi journal Yashwant (e.g. Rangabhoomichi Avashyakta Kay in December 1942; Udyacha Nat and Udyachi Rangabhoomi in November 1943).

FILMOGRAPHY (* only act/ also act): 1924: Prithvi Vallabh*; 1925: Maharachi Por*; Chandrarao More*; Chhatrapati Sambhaji*; Kangal Qaidi*; Mulraj Solanki*; Prabhavati*; Saurashtra Veer*; 1926: Vande Mataram Ashram*; 1927: Jugari Dharma;1928 : Jagadguru Shrimad Shankaracharya; 1929: Vasal Ni Raat; Gori Bala; 1931: Janma Haq (all St); 1934: Bhakta Dhruva; Vasavadatta; Chhatrapati Sambhaji; 1936: Parvati Kalyanam; Pati Bhakti; Bhishma Pratigna; 1937: Begunah*; 1938: Savangadi/ Saathi; 1939: Sukhacha Shodh/Mera? Haq; 1940: Geeta; 1943: Mahatma Vidur; 1952: Chhatrapati Shivaji*; 1953: Maisaheb*.

Film ‘Geeta’ was remade as ‘Ustad’ in 1957 and again as ‘Karmayogi’ in 1978. In ‘Ustad’ (1957), Ashok kumar did the father-son double role and in ‘Karmayogi’ (1978), Raajkumar did it. I saw film ‘Geeta’ in 1960, when it came to a Hyderabad Theatre for a morning show. Even then it ran for 20 days, everyday at 11 am show. The story of film ‘Geeta’, in brief, is…

Shankar (Chandramohan) and Durga (Durga Khote) are poor but a happy family with son Mohan. Durga is very religious and follows the guidelines of Bhagwad Geeta. Shankar is a practical man. Fed up with poverty and the treatment of society to poor people, Shankar angrily leaves house, taking Mohan with him. Durga is pregnant with another child due anytime. After few days, she delivers a son – Kumar.

While Shankar becomes a crook and makes Mohan also a crook, Durga brings up Kumar as a pious, law abiding person as per the teachings of Bhagvad Geeta. Kumar becomes a lawyer and then the public prosecutor. Meanwhile Shankar is arrested for a murder and sentenced with death penalty. The day he is hanged, Mohan takes over his criminal empire. Mohan also has a friend who is a nautch girl – Sundari (Vatsala Kumthekar). He goes on getting spoiled more and more. One day he too is arrested for murder and a case stands in the court.

His own younger brother is against him now as a public prosecutor. Durga meets Mohan in jail. Now Mohan repents, but it is too late. Durga also testifies against her son Mohan. Due to the skill of Kumar, Mohan is given death sentence. Good wins over evil. Crime does not pay is proved. (634)

The film has 10 songs, but none is available on You Tube. Our own Sudhir ji came to my help and made today’s song available from his collection. Thank you, Sudhir ji. Listen to this song in the voice of Baby Suman. . .

Sureeli Suman – 26
—————————

As repeatedly mentioned earlier, those were the days when under ‘Super Cassettes Industries Limited’ banner, Gulshan Kumar had released a number of Devotional and Gazal cassettes under T-Series, to the utter joy of real good taste music lovers.  He had many singers as well as many MDs under contract and had made a bank of songs suitable for various situations and had used them in films, whenever needed.

This song ‘Barse Badariya Saawan Ki’ is from the album ‘He Govind He Gopal’ released in 1995. This one is the last presentation out of ten from that Album of immortal devotionals by our Sureeli Suman. The MD for this Meera Bhajan is Pandit Govind Prasad Jaipurwale.

This simple worded Meera Bhajan is so popular that many singers have given their voices for. What we enjoy here, is the sweet voice of our Sureeli Suman-ji.

“Nand Kishore”(1951) was produced and Vasant Joglekar for M & T Films, Bombay. The movie had Mahipal, Nalini Jaiwant, Durga Khote, Sumati Gupte, Sulochana, Sadhana Bose, Lalita Pawar, Baburao Pendharkar, Rajan, Navin Yagnik, Vasant Thengdi, Master Chhotu, Dinanath Takalkar, Chittaranjan Kolhatkar, Angre, Madhu Apte, Ramesh desai, Surendra Kumar etc in it.

This mythological movie, obviously about Lord Krishna, had nine songs in it. All these songs have ended up becoming obscure songs by now.

One song from this movie has been covered in the blog in the past. Here is the second song from “Nand Kishore”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

Only the audio of this song is available. it can be guessed that the song is about some lady missing her beloved (Lord Krishn in this case). The lip syncer could be Nalini Jaiwant, going by the star cast, but i cannot be sure, seeing that the starcast is dominated by the names of ladies. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.
[Ed Note: Corrected.]

With this post, the blog has now clocked thirteen thousand two hundred unique songs. It may be so that these century milestone are now an expected regularity. But then, it is these (now) minor milestones, that come together and collectively put together and characterize the larger milestones – A journey of a thousand steps is made up of a thousand steps.

Congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. This, and many, many more such milestones put together, are the entire story of this blog.  The ‘wood’ is the outspread treasure that is dear to us, and every ‘tree’ is a different fruit, different flavor. The ‘wood’ – it is our honor and pride. The ‘trees’ – each one is a feast of different flavor and listening pleasure.

As we saunter about the woods and seek to explore newer flavors, the senses want to come to explore and to taste the rare and untouched flavors. The ritual is consistent and persistent. And the wood, it is rife with trees of un-tasted flavors, some of them so rare that it is a realization and a triumph, to be able to seek them, touch them, feel them, and partake of its flavor.

It is an anniversary also that we are celebrating with this song. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a music director active whose name is simply Premnath. (Mind you, different from the actor Premnath). Today is the anniversary of the passing away of music director Premnath.

One of the mysterious and enigmatic names in the history of Hindi film music – Premnath belongs to that list of music directors who have a reasonably sized body of work spread over a good number of years; and yet, despite having a recognizable body of work, there is very little of almost nothing known about him. I have searched and checked with some of the more important sources of information relating to Hindi films and film music. But have consistently drawn a blank. Pankaj Raag in his book, ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’, has put in almost a full page to this music director. But the write up is more of a sampling of Premnath’s body of work.

Premnath was born in the town of Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), on 5th July, 1918. His education as well as training in classical music happened in Multan, Lahore and Amritsar. In his early twenties, he gravitated to the nascent Punjabi film industry and Lahore. His did act in small roles – one film identified by Pankaj Raag is ‘Shehar e Khamoshi’. The author also identifies a film ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ from 1938, in which he also sang a song.

In the first half of1940s, he got married and migrated to Bombay in search of a career in films. In 1946, he made his debut in the Bombay film industry as a music director, with the film ‘Rangbhoomi’. With a certain regularity, he would be directing the music for one to three films over a little less than a decade or so.

In 1947 came ‘Dehati’, ‘Pehla Pyaar’ and ‘Chandrahaas’. 1948 saw the release of his most discussed film, ‘Chaand Sitaare’ which carries the popular “Kaali Ghataayen Hain, Thandi Hawaaein Hain” in the voice of Mukesh. As per available information, Premnath was also the producer of ‘Chaand Sitaare’. This film also has some more notable songs in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. In 1951 came ‘Alakh Niranjan’ and ‘Maaya Machhindra’. Then there is a gap of a few years, and Premnath reappears as music director in 1959 with the religious film ‘Sati Vaishalini’. In the interim he recorded some songs for the film ‘Qaatil Kaun’, but that one remained unreleased. The career slowly fading away, he appeared as a joint music director for ‘Main Hoon Jaadugar’ (1965) with Nashaad, and for ‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ (1968) with Jimmy (James Singh).

In the few films that he has worked on, there are some notable gems as one gets to listen. The rare song being presented today, in the voice of Amirbai Karnataki Rajkumari Dubey, is a delightful composition. The words are from the pen of Rammurty Chaturvedi. Names that are obscure and unfamiliar, have come together to create a beautiful song that is a pleasure to listen to.

Song – Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen (Dehati) (1947) Singers – Rajkumari, Lyrics – Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD – Premnath

ek time machine ka sawaal hai baba

I need a time machine. Ah yes, you will all also say the same; exactly, we all need a time machine. I want to go back into the previous century, and view all these movies that create so much mystery and intrigue. Every film that I am not able to find anything about, makes me want to invent a time machine, and fly back into the past and watch the films, and then come back and write a more informed article about it.

Par kya karen, science has made a lot of promises, tried to explain a lot of things, but has not been successful in communicating with the past. Oh how I wish it were possible. There are ten thousand reasons that I want this wish to be fulfilled, and majority of them are the old cinema that I just crave to be able to lay my eyes on. And this lacuna is only increasing by the day.

Here we are Yippeeing films regularly, and here I am, lost and thinking – here is a film I am writing the post for its final song to be posted. Today’s Yippeee films is ‘Madam XYZ’ (1959). And we have absolutely no inkling what this film contained, how did the storyline progress, how did the songs fit into the screenplay, how did the actors perform on screen, etc. Most such films are financially not successful and hence they are lost without anyone wanting to take care of them.

Ah yes, these are the “lost children” of the industry, whom no one cared for. These creatures were ‘conceived’, then ‘developed’ and ‘produced’ putting together many methods, and then they were finally ‘delivered’. But for some reason these ‘children’ were not accepted by the society. Mind you, nothing illegitimate about them. Just that many people, not many enough people took a liking for them. And so the very parents who had conceived and developed and delivered them, now chose to discard them on the trash heap. And no one bothered. No one paused to consider – these are legitimate creations, they have a certain content and a certain beauty, and more importantly, each one has a story to tell. And beyond that, even more important, each such offspring knew some very beautifully crafted poems and songs, that were probably sung to either empty halls or to un-appreciative audiences. Nobody, or let me say, not enough people paid up to watch these toddlers sing. Some of them; nay most of them had some very wonderful, some very touching, some very exciting melodies to share. But they were shunned, by the very people for whom they created this music. And the worst is, even their ‘parents’ stopped caring for them. Even they shunned them, and simply let them go.

So many of these new born babes were lost, some thrown in the garbage dumps, some even put to fire by greedy men who just wanted to take the silver thread from the adornment and ornamentation stitched into the clothes of these innocent, blameless and helpless children, uncared for by their own creators, who let them out without any support, to be lost in the vagaries of a cruel world, of a cruel and greedy industry. We are searching for more information, and yes, hoping against hope to trace the visuals. And then, when such pursuits all fail, then one realizes the utility of a time machine. Oh how I wish. . .

As I write the Yippeee post for this film today, I have gone back and listened to all the five songs that came before this one. And goodness, what a lovely set of creations these songs are –

Chali Chali Matwaali Hawaa”, such delightful melodious three some shared by Lata, Usha and Sudha.

Jaadoo Bhari Ye Chaandni”, such a magical number, making you feel the moonlight in the words, materializing the ‘pyaar ka samaa’ right in front of the eyes

Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaataa”, such a soft and romantic setup created so beautifully by Rafi Sb and Lata ji

Kuchh Meri Nazar Madhosh Hai”, another such soft romantic contemplation by Lata ji, ‘madhosh’ and ‘mastaani’ nazar, kya kehne

and “O Goriye O Poriye O Chhoriye”, such an unbelievable foot tapping number by Manna Da and Geeta Dutt, it takes all the persuasion to confirm that it IS Chitragupt and not Jimmy or Sardool Kwatra.

On listening to these wonderful gems, one just can’t help thinking of the film itself, and the people who created these delightful melodies. Luckily, in this case, we have ‘inside help’. Our own in-house encyclopedia, dear Arun ji, has seen this movie when it was released on the big screen, and he has provided us the story outline, in one of the previously posted songs. I reproduce here, the synopsis that he has shared earlier.

MADAME XYZ (1959) was a B/C grade stunt picture, under the banner of Neo Light films, produced by Ram Kamlani and Balawant Bhatt and directed by Nanubhai Bhatt.
This film was the ultimate in extremes that a hindi film can show.To see such films, one has to suspend the use of brain and normal thinking.

Radha Kishen has 3 daughters – Asha (Shakila), Laxmi(Nalini Chonkar) and Kirti(Purnima). They are shown as super-women. They are trained in Music, Dance, Drama, Riding, Driving, Martial Arts, Swimming, Flying Aircrafts (and all other skills I forgot to mention). They are kind, lovable, rich and God knows what else ! They have 3 boy friends – Suresh, Bhagwan and Sudesh respectively who are equally qualified like them.

A terribly rich friend of Radha Kishen, Raja Biharilal, on a visit to them is murdered in their house. Radha Kishen is arrested and given 15 days to prove his innocence. Raja Biharilal’s hugh wealth is in a safe,which has 4 keys. 3 Keys are kept with people in 3 corners of India, and the 4th Master key is here.

The girls and their friends start their chase of the killer and move from Qutub Minar to Brindavan Gardens to Jagannath puri to Calcutta and Punjab. They fight the criminals on road, in rail and in aircraft, as well as on a ship.

Finally they all gather in Calcutta, where they send a remote controlled riderless motor cycle after the killer (Pran) and arrest him.

Need I further tell you what happens next ? Of course I must (why only I should suffer alone?).

The end is sweet, father is released – ba-izzat, and the 3 daughters get married to 3 (idiots, you said?) boy friends.

The End (at last !).

This movie is a Neolite films production. It was produced by Ram Kamalani, Balwant Bhatt and directed by Nanabhai Mistry. The movie had Suresh, Shakeela, David, Nalini Chonkar, Purnima, Shammi, Bhagwan, Pran, Sudesh Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Kumar, Jamal, Hari Shivdasani, Hameed, Majnu, Genius, Raja Amrohi, Brahmadutt, Fazloo, Arvind Pandya, Douglas etc in it.

This song is sung by Lata ji. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

A delightful semi classical construction. Quite a wonder that the same music director has composed this aria, the foot tapper “O Goriye, O Poriye. . .” and the soft romantic “Qadam Qadam Pe Bahaaren Lutaata”, all of them together in this film. Chitragupt at his most versatile best.

With this song, the film ‘Madam XYZ’ now joins the ranks of the films with all their songs represented on our blog.

Yippeee. . .
