Today’s song is from the film Jagirdar-1937. The film was made by Sagar Movietone.

In the first decade after the Talkie Era started, Sagar Movietone was one of the major film making companies in Bombay. The Desai family, along with Dr. Ambalal Patel, were originally in Film Distribution business, but decided to enter the actual film production. Sagar Film Company, which had produced 12 silent films, was converted to Sagar Movietone in 1931, after Desai and Patel joined it.

The personal involvement, unstinted finance availability and the growing demand for quality Talkie films and Music helped Sagar to soon become a great place to work with. On their part the Desai family got almost every eligible member of their family to share the responsibility to run this successful company. With their clean reputation and a professional approach with a personal touch to treat its employees, Sagar Movietone attracted the best available talent in the industry.

Sagar had the Top class Heroes and actors with them, like Surendra ( who was initially projected as an answer to K L Saigal of Calcutta), Motilal, Kumar, Shaikh mukhtar, N M Charlie, Yaqub, Bhudo Advani, Kanhaiyalal, V H Desai etc, heroines like, Sabita Devi, Nalini Jaywant, Jyoti, Waheedan bai, Bibbo and Maya Banerjee, Directors like Mehboob, Ezra Mir, Sarvottam Badami ( he was an ordinary Motor mechanic in Bangalore. He also directed Tamil and Telugu films for Sagar later), Ramchandra Thakur and Zia Sarhadi, Cinematographer Faredoon Irani, Sound recordist Kaushik Dholakia and above all Music Director Anil Biswas. All these star artistes grew initially in Sagar. They were the “Jewels of Sagar “.

While doing shootings, the atmosphere on the sets used to be very informal. For film kulwadhu-37, the Heroine Sabita Devi had to wear a Gujarati style Saree, which she did not know how to. She directly went to the owner’s house and learnt it from his wife Nanda Gauri.

Sagar had invented a novel method of promoting films. After film Kulwadhu-37 was released, a contest for readers of the Film India magazine was arranged, asking few questions about the impact of the film on the society. There was a good response from viewers/readers, one of whom also won a cash prize of Rs. 250 ( a princely sum in those days).

Based on this experience, even for film Jagirdar-37, a feedback contest from the audience was thrown open via Film India magazine , announcing total prizes worth about a Thousand rupees or so. Additionally, a half page advertisement in Times Of India was given. Only one sentence was printed in the centre of the advertisement keeping the rest area vacant. The sentence written by Baburao Patel was ” The most kissable Mischief of the year- Maya Banerjee in film Jagirdar, Directed by Mehboob Khan “. This gimmick generated enormous curiosity among the public and increased the multiple visits of the audience to the film.

Film Jagirdar was a tremendous success commercially. The cast included Surendra and Motilal, along with Bibbo and Maya Banerjee. The credit of Multiple Hero Films goes to Sagar. Not only this film, but later on in 1939, they cast 3 Heroes and 3 Heroines in film ” Ek Hi Rasta ‘- 39. In film Jagirdar Surendra and Motilal- though contemporaries- played the roles of Father and Son !

There was an interesting anecdote about Jagirdar shooting. In one scene, Motilal is shown becoming sentimental while remembering his mother. By chance, same morning Motilal had received a telegram informing him that his mother was very ill. While doing this scene Motilal just broke down and wept. Mehboob Khan stopped the shooting. It resumed after Motilal was pacified by all others.

Sagar movietone produced a total of 66 Talkie films from 1931 to 1940. The break up is 52- Hindi, 5- Tamil, 4 – Gujarati, 3 – Telugu, 1-Bengali and 1- Punjabi. Surprisingly, Sagar did not make any Marathi film or a Bilingual film to compete with Prabhat films !

The film was directed by Mehboob Khan with music by Anil Biswas. During their tenure in Sagar both, Mehboob and Anil Biswas became thick friends, but this friendship broke in 1940 when Anil Biswas accepted an offer from Bombay Talkies and left alone. Mehboob Khan felt let down since Anil Biswas had not even informed him before leaving. Due to this they never worked together again in their life.

The story of film Jagirdar-37….

Surendra is a Jagirdar. he loves Neela (Bibbo). They secretly marry and get a child also. In one sea voyage ship wreck, Surendra is believed to have died. Now the child is called illegitimate. Neela is about to commit suicide, but a poor farmer Shripati (Pandey) saves her and also marries her. The child grows as Ramesh (Motilal). he is in love with Sheela(Maya Banerjee).

Surendra survives and comes back. He has a big fight with Shripati over Neela. Ramesh opposes Surendra. Few days later Shripati is murdered and Surendra is suspected for this. When the gangster Narayanlal(Yaqub) comes in the picture, the father and son fight him together and the killer of Shripati is arrested.

All is well that ends well.

Film Jagirdar has 10 songs. 2 songs, including the most popular song of the film-” Nadi kinare, baith ke aao” (Motilal and Maya Banerjee) are already discussed by Atul ji. Today’s song will be the third song. The Mukhda is “baanke Bihaari bhool na jaana “. Many people may not know the meaning of the word Banke Bihari. It has no connection with Bihar. It is one of the names of Lord Shri Krishna. Banke means bent. The statue of Krishna is usually bent at 3 places-Hands folded for Flute, waist folded and leg folded while standing. Bihari means Supreme Enjoyer. In this song, the girl is calling her lover- Krishna, in short. Enjoy the song now…..

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

Wandering into the world of movies of 1930s and 40s gives me immense pleasure. Digging for difficult to find information about old films, directors, music directors, singers or actors is an interesting challenge for me.While on a chase for such information, I frequently come to dead ends and then have to seek another road to gaining knowledge. It is very sad that in our country, documentation about films of 1930s and 40s is very poor.

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 04
—————————————————-

Chhaya Ganguly is an ardent disciple of Madhurani, guru to so many other contemporary ghazal singers.

As mentioned earlier, Jaidev ji was so much impressed by Chhaya Ganguly’s voice and its tonal quality, much different from the prevalent style of most of the contemporary singers. He decided to make a devotional album suited to Chhaaya’s voice. The album ‘Bhakti Sudha’ was published by SaReGaMa (originally HMV, and then RPG) in 1983. It contains eight melodious devotional songs. Today’s post is the second Bhajan from this album to be introduced here on our marvellous musical blog. This Bhajan is written by blind poet Surdas-ji.

This Bhajan is set in the typical Boul music from Bengal. This one is one of the most popular bhajans of Surdas. I have not been able to hear two three words in the last stanza. Please will someone help me?

Chhaya Ganguly’s renderings charged with emotions, divine abandon and melody do full justice to the rich contents of the original verses. Her haunting and sensitive style lingers in the mind long after the last note has faded away.

Jaidev Ki Non-Filmi Suraavali – 03
—————————————————-

When I look, with wide eyes, at my ‘Khjaana’ of Jaidev-ji’s Non-Film songs, I am confused about how to do my presentation of this series to our esteemed audience.  Should I take one artist serially or various artists at random? After an hour or so, of that internal fight, when I played one bhajan by Chhaaya Ganguly, it was easy to decide to present all HER songs serially.  Now with that internal fight over and with a clearer mind, I will write about this bhajan.
