Blog Day : 3514 Post No. : 14115

Today (2 march 2018) is Holi, the festival of colours in India.

This happens to be the TENTH Holi festival for the blog. We discuss Holi songs from Hindi movies on this occasion. As many as 55 Holi festival songs have been covered during the last nine Holi festival occasions. Almost all well known Hol festival songs have already been covered. But seeing that Holi is the most popular festival for Hindi movies, ahead of the second placed festival of Deewaali, we still have a good number of Holi festival songs still left to be covered.

Take this song for instance. This movie “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) had seven songs in it. The sixth and penultimate song from the movie was discussed two years ago. The seventh and final song had to be held back all these days because it happened to be a Holi festival song. It was lined up for 2017 Holi but it missed the bus on that occasion. So the next opportunity for this song being covered in the blog was the Holi of 2018 viz today.

Here are the details of the six songs of “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) that have been covered in the past.

“Miss India”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Rawal Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Nargis, Pradeep Kumar, Nishi, Shammi, Tuntun, Sheela Vaz, Minoo Mumtaz, I S Johar, Pran etc in it.

Mr. K Satish Shenoy, while writing about an earlier song of this movie had given the story of this song. Here is what he had to say about the movie:-

The movie “Miss India” is not about a beauty contest winner. The movie refers to the leading lady as “Miss India”, because the character is about an educated, self reliant, righteous young lass who fights for her rights, against injustice and comes out a winner.

Nargis graduates as a lawyer. Her father puts out a matrimonial advt asking for a match for the educated lady without expecting dowry. An imposter (Pradeep Kumar) marries her & absconds, abandoning her, & taking away her jewellery. She comes to the city, in search of him, & to reform him & continue her married life (& not to catch him & punish him- –after all she is a Bhararatiya Naari ! 🙂 .

After few fruitless days she finds him, but he is unable to recognise her (since he ran away without lifting her ‘ghoongat’.! –That is typical Bollywood!). At this point she befriends him in the guise of a young lad, so as to buy time to reform him. This disguise also helped her find a job.

To cut a long story short, she manages to make him realise his misdeeds and in the end they unite. In the final scenes there is a court case where all riddles are resolved and judge notes the trouble Nargis has gone through and says she is a role model and should be referred to as “Miss India”!!

“Miss India”(1957) had ten songs in it. Nine of them have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs that have already been covered:-

Here is the tenth and final song from “Miss India”(1957). The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

Only the audio of this song appears to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Though the singers, lyricist and music director are all legends and they all have had long and distinguished careers, but it may surprise some to know that this is the only Manna Dey-Asha Bhonsle duet created by the lyricist-MD combination of Rajinder Krishan and S D Burman. In fact, Rajinder Krishna and S d Burman worked together only in five movies. This movie was the last occasion when the came toether in a movie.

With this song, “Miss India”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Intezaar” (1973) to appear in the blog. This song is arguably the most well known song from the movie. I was aware of this song during its day even though I was not aware about the details of the song vis a vis the movie the song was from.

I was only aware of a few lines from the song. Today, more than 45 years after I firdt heard this song, I actually became aware of the full lyrics of the song while noting them down. The song is supposed to be a light hearted song and a satire of babas. But the lyrics of the song are not as trivial as they are supposed to be. The lyrics, to my mind are quite philosophical. In addition, the light hearted lyrics of the song actually convey messages that I feel are true. The conventional logic is that one should live a life of self denial to secure “moksh”. The message of the lyrics is just the reverse. The song and the picturisation is supposed to be light hearted and not to be taken seriously, but I find myself fully agreeing to the contents of the song. It is perhaps something that the lyricist never intended to, when he penned this song all those years ago. 🙂

The song is sung by Manna Dey and it is lip synced by I S Johar who plays a baba. He preaches indulgence, instead of self denial, and naturally he has a big following compared to those babas who preach boring stuff like leading disciplined spartan lifestyle far from distractions of modern life.

Verma Malik is the lyricist and he inadvertently has penned a great philosophical song with quite a bit of truth in it.

Chitragupta is the music director.

With this song, “Intezaar” (1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Man ko pinjre mein na daalo (Intezaar)(1973) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

hmm
hmm hmm hmm
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
arre man to hai ek udta panchchi
jitna ude udaa lo
man ko
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo

kehte hain ki pyaar na kar
arre pyaar aur na karo

man jo kahe ke pyaar karo
ek baar nahin sau baar karo
kyun
ye pyaar diya usne nibhaane ke liye
aji pyaar diya usne nibhaane ke liye
roop diya sirf dikhaane ke liye
aankhen banaayi hain ladaane ke liye to
dil diya usne milaane ke liye
are pyaar ek punya hai pyaar hai jaap
nahin hota to bhi karo apne aap
pyaar koi paap nahin pyaar hai milaap
pyaar bina jeewan hai total flop
punya paap ke chakkar mein koi
pad ke sake na bach
kyun re chele jhooth kaha
nahin guru ji
sach
thank you very much
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo

to kehte hain ki madira na piyo
arre bhai kyun
kyun na piyo
man kahe gar wishky piyo
phir jiski mile tum uski piyo
arre peene ki cheez hai ye karo mat gham
bhai peene ki cheez hai ye karo mat gham
kabhi nahin sochna ke tharra ya rum
itni piyo ke ukhad jaaye dum
baatli mile to poori baatli khatam
arre jab whisky se man bhar jaayega
bhar jaayega to tauba kar jaayega
man pe jo koi kaabu kar jaayega
bhavsaagar se wo tar jaayega
moti akal waale na samjhen
meri baat baareek hai
kyun chele jee
ghalat kahaan
nahin guru jee
thheek hai
hmm
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
man ko pinjre mein na daalo

aur kehte hain
man ko baandh ke rakho
arre bhaai kyun bhaai
kyun baandh ke rakkho

dheeli chhod do man ki lagaam
amar ho jaaye jag mein naam
kaise
jiske man ne kiya fly hai
bhaai
jiske man ne kiya fly hai
usne dekho mukti paayi hai
jaise raadha meera bai hai
donon ko hi mila krishn kanhaai hai
par jis jis ka man atak gaya
wo raahon mein bhatak gaya
agar zara ye khatak gaya
to samjho praani latak gaya
ye to hai ek udan kabootar
iska udna fact hai
kyun jee foreigner
wrong hai
no sir correct hai
very good
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo
arre man to hai ek udta panchchi
jitna ude udaa lo
man ko
man ko pinjre mein na daalo
man ka kahna mat taalo

‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ (1971) is different from the serial ‘Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ which came a long time after the movie. The movie was an all-round entertainer. We would not get anything less in a movie where Om Prakash heads the cast and the hero (Sanjay Khan in this case) plays a second fiddle to Om Prakash and Jagdeep. Plus, when the mirch-masalas Lalita Pawar and Shashikala spice up the whole setup, it is but natural that the lead cast (Sanjay Khan and Leena Chandavarkar) become secondary – their presence being needed for the romantic interludes.

I must confess I was unaware of this movie till a few years back – till 2014 to be exact. I chanced upon it on one of the umpteen satellite channels. The title made me sit through what turned out to be an enjoyable family- entertainer (as they used to be called back then) which didn’t make you start crying halfway through. A family-entertainer essentially was one which one could see with the entire family and the viewer will be preached about how to maintain family relationships and a few ladies in the audience will be seen crying into their hankies. This movie was not like that.

So, coming to today’s song we have Om Prakash playing a Sadhu Baba and Sanjay and Jagdeep are his chelaas (I think it means students) with Sunder playing an assistant. In the movie Sanjay is Om Prakash’s son, Sunder – his servant and Jagdeep is Sanjay’s saala (brother-in-law). The song has Shashikala and Lalitha Pawar as ladies who have come with queries to the “antaryaami baba”. Through the song we get a gist of the movie. The song is in the voice of Manna Dey written by Rajendra Krishan, with music composed by RD Burman.

One song from this movie was discussed in 2016 by our Avinashji. On the occasion of Om Prakash’s passing away anniversary today; we shall see him the way he was largely-loved by the public. It is 20 years since he passed away.

In those days we used to live in Chembur, Bombay (not yet Mumbai then) and both Om Prakash and Ashok Kumar lived not very far from where we were. Those were the days when it was still cable TV and not satellite TV. And what did the cable operator providing service to our apartment do, he just stopped service for the day and put up a notice on black card— to enable the public in the area to attend the funeral of our beloved “jija ji” (as Om Prakash’s character was in “’Chupke Chupke”) we are suspending our service for a day. That was how much he was loved.

We can remember so many of his memorable characters – starting from ‘Guddi’ (1971) (that is where I noticed him first) to all his characters in Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies, to ‘Ghar Ho To Aisa’ (1990) (that is the last time I saw him in a movie). Of course, his career spanned 42 years and starting from movies made in Lahore in 1942 to “Ghar Ki Izzat” in 1994 he was a co star to every actor – big or small- and gave his best no matter the size of the role as in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ (1970).

Thinking of Jija ji today on his anniversary

“O Tera Kya Kehnaa”(1959) was produced by N H Baria and A Khaliq and directed by K Parvez for Y T U Baria Films, Bombay.

This “social” movie had Mehmood, Chitra, Kammo, Helen, Sheikh, Bhagwan, Renu Makad, Shaam Kumar, Babu Raje, Manohar Kamat, Munshi Munaqqa, Kathana, Haneef, Fazlu, Bagla, Maqbool, Kallan etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that were penned by five lyricists and sung by eight singers !

Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “O Tera Kya Kehnaa”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Suman Kalyanpur. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji.

The song has a “western” feel about it and the three singers rarely got to sing songs of this genre. But they have hung on (and sung on) gamely.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 62 # Remembering Pran Saab on his birth anniversary
———————————————–—————————

While watching our Hindi movies we carry some preconceived images of an actor/actors or actress/actresses based on roles they play in movies. It is quite common for an actor or actresses in Indian movies to get typedcast as an actor suitable only for ‘good’/‘positive’ or ‘bad’/‘negative’roles. So when we watch a movie, we expect an actor to play the same kind of stereotyped role that we have seen him play in the past. To come out of this stereotype successfully is a challenge and very few actors in Hindi film industry have been successful in shaking off their earlier image and being just as successful in their new roles.

Every moviegoer or movie buff has his own likes and dislikes for certain film personalities based on the roles they play on screen. Normally this feeling remains unaltered throughout.

Is it possible for us to “hate” an actor heartily for decades and then warming up to him subsequently and starting to “love” him with the same intensity ?

Yes, it is possible. There was this actor who was disliked and dreaded so much that no parents gave their sons his name for decades ! But when he started doing ‘good’ and ‘positive’ roles on screen we started to cheer for him, we began to dance when he breaks into a ‘song’, and ‘dance’, we ‘shed tears’ when he sacrificed his life doing ‘good’ on screen.

I am talking about Pran Saab, of course.

We can feel the images of ‘characters’ he played, in around ourselves, in our society or rather he transformed those ‘real life’ looking images into ‘reel life’ with superb improvisations through his style and mannerisms.

I have my set of memories associated with the movies he acted in and I am sure many others may also be having so.

And having said all the above I don’t really think that I have to go and mention here all those movies and the ‘roles’ I liked, because it cannot be covered in one article and the space (normally we give to one write up) here.

Pran Kishan Sikand born on 12th February 1920 (12.02.1920 – 12.07.2013) and today we remember him on his anniversary of birth.

He may not be present in his ‘flesh and blood’ around us but he is there ‘immortal’ in his ‘works’, sincere, dedicated, disciplined in his ‘acts’, ‘humble and generous’ in his living and still bent down on his knees and thanking his fans and crediting them all for his ‘success’ and moving us all in tears with his words ‘I bow before you all.’

Pran Saab we love you so much and thank you for all that you have given us!!!

***

The idea of this post came to my mind almost two years back when I broke into humming this song that is being presented today. I thought this song perfectly fits for this post of mine which is being presented today.

The lyrics in ‘Devnagri script’ are provided by my daughter Ashwini which I requested her then, however the post got delayed and hope it will be in time there with our editors at least now.

The other reason that I want to do a post on Pran Saab is the nostalgia and so many memories of his movies which always cherished and particularly of those years, the most happening years of Hindi Cinema – that is the ‘decade of seventies- 1971-1980’.
Of course, he had already been there in movies much before of the Seventies. But still, Seventies is an important decade for him too)

***

And taking it from the dialogue of the movie ‘Anand’ – ‘Anand maraa nahin Anand martein nahin’ I can put –

“Pran martein nahin – Pran amar hain”

“Zindagi Zindagi” (censored on August 19th 1972) starred Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Waheeda Rehman, Farida Jalal, Ramesh Deo, Anwar Husain, supported by Shyama, Jalal Agha, Master Tito, Chaya Devi, Gajanan Jagirdar etc. Music was by Sachin Deb Burman who led the list of playback singers (the song with the titles is in the voice of Sachinda and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist. The other playback singers were Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar. Producer was Nariman A. Irani and A.P. Sharma and director was Tapan Sinha.

The movie (what little I saw of it) is based in a village where there is a hospital of which Sunil Dutt is a doctor and revolves around the life of the villagers and casteism. Ramesh Deo played Choudhury Ramprasad’s vagabond son. Today’s song has him {Ramesh Deo} lip-sync in the voice of Manna Dey through the lanes of the village and making politician-type promises of sadak (road), school, railgaadi (train), pul (bridge) etc. all in one breath.

Possibly the first movie in which I made note of an actor called Ramesh Deo was Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s “Anand”;that too not when the movie was released (I was a toddler at that time) but when I saw it on Doordarshan.

Then subsequently I saw him in “Jeevan Mrityu” (on tv of course) which came before “Anand” and other movies like “Khilona” “Lakhon mein ek” “Dus Lakh” and numerous other movies. He mostly played characters that were grey or completely negative, though occasionally he played a lovable friend as in “Shikar” or “Anand” or “Rampur Ka Laxman” “Ek Mahal Ho Sapno Ka” etc.

Now why am I talking about Ramesh Deo ? Because he turns a year older today (30 january 2018). He turns 89 today-unbelievable that he has been around for so long. He made his debut in Marathi films in 1951/52 and his Hindi debut was in the 1962 Rajshri Productions movie “Aarti”. Recently (meaning 2-3 years back) I saw him on some Marathi channel where they were felicitating him on his long innings in the film world- Marathi and Hindi. They also showed footage of his contribution to the industry and then it dawned on me that he has produced feature films, television serials, ad films etc. He is active even now as can be seen in the surf excel ad which has him play an adoring grandpa with Vidya Sinha as the grandma https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiHhHKE_iMI . Ramesh Deo’s family is into entertaining the world- his wife is actress Seema Deo and sons Ajinkya- an actor and Abhinay- a director of movies, ads and television serials.

Honestly speaking I landed on a song mouthed by Ramesh Deo by accident. In the long time that he has spent in movie (almost 250 Hindi movies) the number of times he has sung songs on screen can be counted on one’s fingers. This is one such song that reminds me of “woh jhootha hai vote na usko dena” from “Namak Haram” though here it looks like he is making false promises. 🙂

Today’s song is from film Maa-52. It is sung by Manna Dey, under the baton of composer S.K.Pal.

The film was produced by Ashok Kumar and Sawak Vachha for Bombay Talkies. The director was Bimal Roy. The screen play was also by Bimal Roy on the story of Swaraj Banerjee.Dialogues were by Nabendu Ghosh and the translations were done by Nazir Hussain and Asit Sen (roly poly actor and Director). The cast was Leela Chitnis, Bharat Bhushan,Shyama, Nazir Hussain,Asit Sen, Manju, B.M.Vyas, Achla Sachdev, Bikram Kapoor, Krishnakant, Samar Chatterjee, Bharata Vyas(uncredited) etc etc.

Nabendu Ghosh (27.3.1917 to 15.12.2007) was born in Dhaka. He was a famous Bangla writer, who joined New Theatres. In 1951 he left New Theatres and joined Bimal Roy in Bombay. He wrote Screen plays/dialogues for most of Bimal Roy’s films. After Roy’s death, he worked with Hrishikesh Mukherjee for a long time. In 1988, he directed his only film “Trishagni’. After his death, his autobiography,”Eka Nauker jatri” was published.

Maa-52 was Bimal Roy’s first film in Bombay. He was born on 12-7-1909, in Suvapur village in East Bengal. His father Hemchandra Roy was a very rich landlord. He was a simple and kind person. After he died, it was known that his servants had misappropriated all his money and land and the family came on the road. The big family shifted to Calcutta in 1930-31.

Bimal Roy joined New Theatres as an assistant to Nitin Bose. He soon became an expert Cameraman and shot films like Chandidas, Devdas, manzil, Grihdaah, Maya, Mukti etc. In 1937, he was married to Manobina Sen. He continued as a Cameraman till 1942 doing more films like Abhagin,Badi Didi, Abhinetri, Haar jeet and Meenakshi.

By 1942, due to restrictions on supply of raw film and financial crisis, added to Ego problems of Big artistes and the management, New Theatres came into problems. One after another most artistes like Barua, Debki Bose, Nitin Bose, Saigal, Prithwiraj kapoor, Kumar, Kidar Sharma etc left Calcutta and reached Bombay. Bimal Roy did a documentary on the Bengal Famine in 1943 and then directed his first Bangla/Hindi bilingual film Udayer Pathe/Hamraahi in 1944. The successful film ran for an year in Calcutta and established him. Then came Anjangadh,Mantramugdha and Pehla Admi.

Bimal Roy came to Bombay for the premiere of film Pehla Admi-50. Here he met his old collegue Hiten Chaudhari,who was working in Bombay Talkies-supposed to be a hub for all artistes coming from Bengal. He took Bimal Roy to Bombay Talkies and he got his first film in Bombay- Maa-52, for direction. Then came Parineeta-53. Bimal Roy then established his own Bimal Roy Productions and made many films. He directed films like Do Bigha Zamin, Naukari, Devdas, Madhumati, Sujata, Parakh, Prempatra and Bandini for his own productions. For others too he directed films like Biraj Bahu, Baap Beti and Yahudi. Bimal Roy Productions mad films like Amanat, Parivaar, Apradhi Kaun,Usne kaha tha,Kabuliwala and Benazir where other directors did the films.

Bimal Roy got 11 Film Fare Awards for Best films and Best Direction in all. He got several National and International awards too. He was a heavy smoker. In 1965, Lungs Cancer was detected and he died on 8-1-1966

Bimal Roy was not only a very sensitive person, but he was like an Institution for subordinates, who learnt a lot from him. He was like a complete school of film making and gave the film industry great film makers and writers like Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Gulzar, Nabendu Ghosh, Salil Chaudhari ( Do Bigha Zamin-53 was based on his story Rikshawala, written in the 40s. Parakh was also his story and he wrote screen play for Prempatra) and Basu Bhattacharya. After Bimal Roy’s death, Hrishikesh Mukherjee dedicated film Anupama to his memories.

One special characteristic of Bimal Roy was song picturisation on character and unknown artistes ( like Guru Dutt). Sachin Shankar sang Parakh song-kya hawa chali. His production manager’s wife Dolly kapoor sang 2 songs in Bandini. Rajdeep, a character artiste sang”mat ro mata laal tere bahutere”in film. W.M.Khan sang in Kabuliwala. In same film a small time actor M.V.Rajan also sang a song.

Bimal Roy shot a major part of film Madhumati in Nainitaal. When he came back to Bombay, to his dismay, he found that 60% shots were spoiled. Without losing head, he shot all those scenes in Bhandardara-near Bombay and the film was edited so well, that nobody felt any difference !

Film Maa-52 was a solid tear jerker competing with any Madras film from AVM or Gemini. The story of the film was…

Chander Babu (Nazir Hussain) is a retired Post office employee, now working with the local Zamindar, on a very low salary. He and his wife (Leela Chitnis) live in Chandanpur. They have two sons. Elder son Rajan (Paul Mahendra) is married to a wealthy family girl (Achla Sachdev), who is very arrogant. He is studying final Law course. The younger son Bhanu( Bharat Bhushan ) is good natured and helpful. He studies in college. he is in love with a girl Meena (Shyama) and her father approves their marriage.

Rajan needs Rs. 300 for his exams, but his father can not get this much money. His own wife has the money but refuses to give. One day Bhanu is returning to his house in the night when he hears “Thief, Thief ” He finds that the Thief is no one else, but his own father who tries theft for Rs 300 to give the fees. Bhanu takes the blame on himself, is caught and jailed.

When Bhanu is released and comes to meet his parents, he is told by Rajan that they don’t want to see even his face. Bhanu goes away, is helped by an advocate and gets a Bank job. His father confesses everything to his wife, gets a shock and dies. The mother goes in search of Bhanu. She is treated like a maid in Rajan’s house. Bhanu works hard and becomes a manager. He sends Rs100 money order every month to his mother, but Rajan and his wife take that Money order, without mother’s knowledge. Bhanu meets Meena and their love kindles again. She tells him about his mother.

Bhanu comes back and meets the mother. He realises that she is treated lie a maid by Rajan and wife. He goes to Rajan, fights with him, drags him to his mother. Rajan and his wife repent and ask for a pardon. The Maa pardons them. Bhanu and Meena’s marriage is announced.

Film Maa-52 had only 6 song. Today’s song is the fourth song to be posted here. It is sung by Manna Dey. The Music Director S.K.Pal- Surya Kumar Pal, was the nephew of composer Ramchandra Pal. He first joined Shalimar pictures of Poona and in the end did few films for Bombay Talkies. In all he did 19 films. His last film was Dhola Maaru-56, in which, for the first and last time, he used Lata Mangeshkar for his songs. The song is picturised on Leela Chitnis….

Raam gaye vanwaas

Blog Day : 3479 Post No. : 13976

I congratulate all our readers on the auspicious occasion of this 69th REPUBLIC DAY of our country (26 january 2018).

Seriously, how many of us really know the definition of a Republic ? As per the Oxford Dictionary, “A Republic is a sovereign country, which is organised with a form of Government in which the power resides with elected individuals, who exercise power according to the rule of the law “. In short, it is a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

After India achieved freedom in 1947, some films on Patriotic themes were made. ‘Andolan’ (1951) was one such film. Made by Harnam Motwane, under his banner Motwane Ltd, this film is labelled as a ‘historic’ film by HFGK. That may be because in this film the history of India’s independence struggle from 1885 to 1947 is shown with the documentaries and actual footage (with a basic film story, of course) from short films made by Films Division and some film companies like Krishna and Kohinoor films.

This was Kishore Kumar’s first film as a hero and his role was a serious one, that of a militant hero. Though in his later career, Kishore became famous and popular as a comedian – a reluctant one, though, he always yearned for serious roles in serious films. When he started producing his own films, he took the opportunity to make some serious films.

Today’s song is from film ‘Andolan’. It is not a film song actually, but our National Song, suitably woven into the film story. “Vande Maataram” could have been our National Anthem, but things were manoeuvred in such a way that it did not get that place of honour. Let us see a brief history of Vande Mataram through the years.

It was Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay who wrote the lyrics for the powerful “Vande Maataram”. It was Sanyasi Rebellion (1763-1800) that inspired Bankim to write the historic novel ‘Ananda Matth’. Actually, the lyrics of this song came much before the novel. He wrote the lyrics while he was riding in a train and was inspired by the scenic landscape, beautiful lakes and charm of nature in its expansive splendor. The poet in him got totally inspired and burst into penning down lyrics for this soul stirring poem. However, it took few more years for the poem to reach to the masses.

On April 14th 1906, at the Bengali Provincial Conference of Indian National Congress at Barisal, Bankim revealed this power-packed mantra to the masses. The pledge for undoing the then partition of Bengal was also taken at this conference. And “Vande Maatarm” became a weapon in the hands of patriotic revolutionaries of India which shook the foundation of British Raj. Many hard core patriots went to gallows while holding Bhagwath Geeta in one hand and the lines of “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

“Vande Maataram” even reached the shores of America in 1912 and the Gadar party was formed to fight against British Colonialism, with vows of patriotism singing the lines of this inspirational poem. Four Indian revolutionaries from Independence League in Japan were caught by British forces and were sentenced to death. All four went to gallows with “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

National Anthem of Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army – INA) led by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, was a soul-stirring adoration of the motherland India which inspired thousands of soldiers to lay down their lives for India’s independence. Netaji writes about “Vande Mataram” in his autobiography calling it as the National Anthem of India. In his writings, he says – “Vande Maataram” literally means “I salute you, O Mother”.

“Vande Maataram” inspired twenty four soldiers of Bristish Indian Army stationed in Tamilnadu in 1940’s. And British arrested all twenty four on charges of mutiny and were sentenced to death. In Madras (now Chennai) Jail all twenty four went to gallows once again with “Vande Maataram” on their lips.

The acceptance and usage of this poem was also fraught with controversies. The Muslim League opposed the acceptance of this poem on grounds of religious sentiments, as early as 1908. Taking a rigid and parochial view, based on a certain interpretations of the fundamental tenets of Islamic traditions, they claimed that their religion disallowed them to bow their head in worship and salute to any person or symbol other than Allah, the Almighty. By this logic, they said, a salute to even as revered a symbol as the Motherland, would be hurting their religious sentiments.

In 1922, Congress leaders with Nehru as a party leader decided to maim “Vande Maataram” by allowing only first two stanzas of this poem to be sung. Muslim League still persisted in its objection, and in 1938, Jinnah placed before Nehru his demand for completely abandoning this poem.
[Ed Note: There is ample evidence to also show that such divisive manipulations was the handiwork of the British. It was the British who wanted the ‘Jana Gana Mana. . .’ poem by Rabindranath Tagore, to take precedence over all other such similar candidates. They wanted to stress their superiority and control over the leaders and people of India, simply because the creation of Rabindranath Tagore was originally written in the honor of the British king. And that both the Muslim League and the Indian National Congress were simply toeing the British line.]

Nehru further went on to say that lyrics of “Vande Maataram” were not suitable for composing it into a melody. And no orchestra will be able to play such a song. But one patriot-musician Master Krishna Rao Phulambrikar from Pune proved Nehru wrong. He composed “Vande Maataram” in a very melodious tune. However, Nehru wanted to get okay from British Band (orchestra) experts. Master Krishna Rao Phulambrikar came to Bombay (now Mumbai) and played his composition to British Band experts and they approved it after playing smoothly in their orchestra. This proved for the first time that “Vande Maataram” could be composed melodiously.
[Author’s Note : I do not understand here why Nehru wanted an okay from British Band in the first place].

In spite of all these efforts, Congress leaders did not like the idea of making this poem as the National Anthem of India. Even before the official decision was taken by Constituent Assembly on this issue, “Jana Gana Mana” was played as National Anthem in the UN General Assembly in 1947. If congress (read – Nehru) would not have hastened there was a possibility that “Vande Maataram” would have been adopted as National Anthem of India by majority votes of assembly members.

But things took place behind the scenes. The question never came to Constituent Assembly. Instead of passing a resolution for adopting National Anthem by majority votes, the first President of India Dr. Rajendra Prasad was asked to announce on January 24th, 1950 saying that “Jana Gana Mana” will be the National Anthem of India and “Vande Maataram” will have equal status with it.

Of course, Vande Mataram does not need any official stamp of being a National Anthem from Government of India so long as it lives in the hearts of millions and millions of Indians all across the globe. (Adapted from an article by Dr N Kamath, with thanks).

As far as the story of film ‘Andolan’ is concerned, this is what its film booklet says-

In the year 1885, Charu Dutt, a worldly-wise patriot, journeys from his little village to attend the first session of the Indian National Congress, held in Bombay. Fired with patriotic zeal, he returns to his village and speaks to his friends and relatives of the new wave that is about to spread over India. To his son he explains the cultural and political past of India, from the dawn of her history upto the turbulence of 1857. The years roll on, and we come to the partition of Bengal. There is thunder in the air, and India’s inspiring song, “Vande Maataram”, is born. The struggle gathers strength. Mahatma Gandhi appears, and freedom comes closer. 1920. . . 1921. . . Simon Commission, Bardoli, Dandi, 1930. . . 1932. . . the battle rages and the drama heightens. Then, August 1942 and Quit India, and on to the final chapter in our freedom story, which unfolds in this film as the story of a single family, representing the nation of which they are the heart-beats.

According to a Review of this film, published in those days-

The true patriot that he was, Pannalal Ghosh gave stirring compositions and flute playback for the memorable film ‘Andolan’. This film starred Shivraj, Kishore Kumar, Manju, Pushpa, Sushma, Parsuram, and Tiwari and was directed by Phani Majumdar for Motwane Ltd.

The film, made at Bombay Talkies, was produced by the distributors of the Chicago Radio PA systems. Kishore Kumar plays the role of the militant hero of this quasi-documentary. It is a stridently nationalistic story of India’s freedom struggle, presented through the expressions of a Bengali family from 1885 (when the Indian National Congress was established) to 1947. It has the actual footage of India’s freedom struggle. Speeches and talks of our national leaders, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and many others are included in the narrative of this film.

Important events incorporated into the plot were Mahatma Gandhi’s Satyagrah (1920), the Simon Commission (1928), Sardar Vallabh bhai Patel’s Bardoli Satyagrah (1928) and the 1942 Quit India agitation. Old documentary footage purchased from Kohinoor and Krishna Films, as well as a shot of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore singing Jana Gana Mana are included. The song “Vande Maataram” rendered by Parul Ghosh, Sudha, and Manna Dey is based on Raaga Miyan Malhar. “Prabhu Charanon Main Aaya Pujari” in Raaga ‘Shree’ and “Radha Ne Kiya”, both rendered by Parul Ghosh are appreciated by music lovers. “Subah Ki Pahili Kiran Tak Zindagi Mushkil Mein Hai” rendered by Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and others is a unique experimentation in Bhor music.

The film was directed by Phani Mujumdar (28-12-1911 to 16-5-1994), who was already a seasoned Director. He is the only Director who directed films in 9 languages (Hindi, Bangla, English, Malay, Chinese, Magadhi, Maithili, Aasamese and Punjabi). He started his career assisting PC Barua in Calcutta. Besides ‘Street Singer’ (1938) and ‘Kapaal Kundala’ (1939), he had directed a total of 29 films,which include several hit films like ‘Baadbaan’, ‘Doctor’, ‘Tamanna’, ‘Door Chalen’, ‘Faraar’, ‘Aarti’, ‘Kanyadan’, ‘Akashdeep’, ‘Oonche Log’ etc. Here is a short biosketch and an obitury on him, published in The Independent, Calcutta, on 22-6-1994, and is written by the famous film historian and author of ‘Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema’ – Ashish Rajadhyaksha.

PHANI MAJUMDAR was a pioneer of Indian cinema, working in the late 1930s with PC Barua, India’s equivalent of DW Griffith, in the famous New Theatres Studio of Calcutta. Here, between 1936 and 1939, new standards were set for Indian motion pictures in a series of reflective, lyrical films that brought cinema closer to life and literature.

Majumdar’s contribution was ‘Street Singer’ (1938), a melancholy love story, his debut and a classic of Indian cinema. Its male lead, Kundan Lal Saigal, sang his immortal song ‘Babul Mora’ here, on a charged symbolic landscape of boats adrift in the mist. The Famine of 1943 and Partition of India were events of the future yet much of the symbolism of Bengal, the redolent Tagorean motifs of life-giving rivers, the feudal elite recreating the 19th century in desolate mansions – all the stuff that Satyajit Ray later spoke of as ‘the past’ – was in place with Street Singer. It was watched, not just as a love story par excellence, but as an expression of themes of Indian identity and nationalism which would be relevant for India, and Majumdar, even beyond Independence.

Majumdar was born in Faridpur, in what is now Bangladesh, in 1911. From Calcutta he moved to Bombay in 1941, directing classic musicals which often promoted traditional ways of Indian life, with stars like Suraiya in ‘Tamanna’ (1942), Shanta Apte in ‘Mohabbat’ (1943), and the blind singer KC Dey.

Majumdar’s Andolan (1951), Indian cinema’s most elaborately constructed nationalist propaganda feature, was made to promote Nehru’s Congress Party and was the closest that India ever came, on film, to defining a popular culture of nationalism: a small family in Bengal experiences in microcosm the major political events in the country, from 1885 (when the Congress Party was established) to Independence.

Majumdar returned to India from working in Singapore in the 1960s, and proceeded to make films in Punjabi, and even in obscure languages like Magadhi (‘Bhaiya’, 1961) and Maithili (‘Kanyadaan’, 1965). His interest in themes of an intrinsically Indian nature was a driving force to the end of his career. He worked on the television phenomenon of the 1980s in India, the 78-part religious epic ‘The Ramayana’, and was working on a television series ‘Our India’ when he died. No doubt, had he lived, the ‘Our India’ series, on a state television network struggling to hold its own in competition with satellite, would have been the fitting finale to a career which started with ‘Street Singer’.

The film had a cast consisting of Kishore kumar, Shivraj, Manju, Parshuram, Tiwari, Krishnakant, Sachin Shankar, Pushpa, Gauri devi etc etc. The recording of the songs of this film were done in November 1949 to August 1950 itself. Actor Krishnakant aka K.K. who acted in this film, did the role of Rehmu (Rehman) – a 20 year old young man. By the end of the film, he becomes an 85 year old Rehmu Chacha. He has written about this film in his Gujarati autobiography, ‘Guzra hua zamana’, that he had to do the make up differently for every shot of his role – from young to old. His make up man was Dada Paranjape, who had worked in Prabhat and Rajkamal with V Shantaram. The shooting of the film was done in Bhopal and nearby areas. All the actors and crew had to stay in Military Barracks and had to report at 7 am for shootings. The season was winter and the cold of Bhopal was unbearable. Constant tea/coffee supply was arranged.

For lack of any big stars and actors, distributors were wary of taking the film. A grand premiere was arranged, attended by Dev Anand, Raj Kapoor, Meena kumari, Madhubala, Geeta Bali and others. However, the film did not do big business. Probably, the documentary type presentation was not impressive enough.

The film has 6 songs. Today’s song is the second song to be posted here. The first song was discussed few years ago. On this auspicious occasion of our Republic Day, let us listen to “Vande Maataram”, sung by Parul Ghosh, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey, Sailesh Kumar and Chorus.


Song- Vande Maataram (Aandolan)(1951) Singers- Parul Ghosh, Sudha Malhotra, Manna Dey, Sailesh Kumar, Lyrics-Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, MD- Pannalal Ghosh
