“Anyaay” (1949) was produced and directed by J S Kashyap for Diamond Pictures Limited, Bommbay.

“Anyaay”(1949) was a unique kind of movie. It was not an “original” standalone movie. It basically took scenes from 14 earlier movies of Bombay Talkies and combined them to come up with a story, shooting a few additional scenes as required. For shooting these scenes, the movie had used J S Kashyap, Laxman Saroj, Putli Bai, Narbada Shankar, Devidutt Nautiyal, Kesar Bai, Shree Bhagwan, B S Bhatnagar etc.

The movie had nine songs according to HFGK. Even the songs of the movie were those songs which were already utilised in Eearlier Bombay Talkies movies. For instance, the movie reused (with visuals) two songs from “Jeewan Prabhat”(1937) and one song from “Hamaari Baat”(1943).

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Anyaay” (1949) to appear in the blog. This song was originally used in “Izzat”(1937). There the song was sung by Devika rani but here the same song is sung by Meena Kapoor.

J S Kashyap was the lyricist in both the movies. Music in “Anyaay”(1949) version was by Ram Prasad.

Incidentally the tune of the song was different in the two movies.

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

Incidentally, the same song is mentioned in HFGK under two headings, viz at serial number 4 as “O jaane waale ye to bata” and at serial number 9 as “nagari laage sooni sooni”. So in effect, the movie had eight songs and not nine.


Song-O jaane waale ye to bata..nagari laage sooni sooni (Anyaay)(1949) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-J S Kashyap, MD-Ram Prasad

Lyrics

O jaane waale
ye to bata
mujhe kiske sahaare chhod chala
mera man jeewan soona kar ke
kyun nirmohi munh mod chada

nagari laage sooni sooni
nagari laage sooni sooni
jabse gaye pal chain na gaye
ja se gaye
palchain na aaye
buri bhayi gati man ki
buri bhayi gati man ki
nisdin naina raah takat hai
nisdin naina raah takat hai
chaah lagi darashan ki
ho chaah lagi darsan ki
more peer badhat din dooni
more peer badhat din dooni

nagari laage sooni sooni
nagari laage sooni sooni

Today’s song is from a ‘C’ grade stunt film – ‘Return of Mr. Superman’ aka ‘Superman Ki Wapsi’ (1960).

Hindi film industry is full of third grade, mindless and cheap copies of successful foreign films and stories. Indian films can not copy the costly scenes, sets and A grade actors for C grade films, so they make do with childish cheap sets, unknown producers or directors, actors who are at the fag end of their careers and overall an easy treatment to films. It is painful to see such films.

There was an era, when even action/stunt films carried some prestige. They were made by reputed or specialist film makers like, Wadias, Mohan Pictures, Imperial, Ranjit or even Master Bhagwan. They used to spend a fair amount on erecting sets or on outdoor shootings. Above all, their stunts used to be real and actually breath taking. Famous stunt actors like Azad, Prakash, John Cavas, Fearless Nadia, Vasantrao and Baburao Pehelwan etc. used to undertake thrilling stunts using trained animals like tigers, lions, horses, monkeys, dogs and even jalopy cars and motor cycles. The audience went to watch the stunts. Story, histrionics or music/songs were secondary.

Superman is a comics character popularised first in USA. The first cinema on Superman came in 1948 with actor Kirk Alyn as the hero. This was like a film serial. The feature film came in 1951 with George Reeves first and then the most popular Christopher Reeves. Many actors have done this role till now. A Superman with extraordinary powers has been a dream for mankind since a long long time. May be, perhaps, the Gods in almost every religion were endowed with such powers in fiction and the mythology.

Indian film makers were hardly to miss such stories. But I find that more than flying in the air or jumping from building to building, like Batman or Spiderman, Indian audiences lapped up the ‘Invisible Man’ theme more. The first such film was made by Prakash Pictures, ‘Khwaab Ki Duniya’ in 1938. Then came the successful 1957 film ‘Mr. X’ and lastly the most popular film came on this theme in 1987 as ‘Mr. India’.

On this background, no wonder, Superman, Batman or Spiderman never captured the imagination or fascination of Indian film audience. 1960 saw 2 films on Superman and one was in 1987. Comparatively, Tarzan films became more popular here. Creative producers combined Tarzan with any and every character of Arabian nights, gave him son, daughter and brought him to city or even Circus. Indian avatars of Tarzan like, Zambo and Zimbo were also popular. these films helped Dara Singh to establish himself in Hindi films. Anyway, gone are the days when action or stunt films had special audience. Neither that audience nor those films have any presence now.

Since the day SFX (special effects – an improved version of old trick scenes) became popular in India, every hero has become a stuntman himself. Except probably Ajay Devgan and Akshay Kumar, most other actors are stuntmen by SFX only.

Coming to today’s film ‘Return of Mr. Superman’, the film was made by Manmohan Films – owned by the producer, director and lyricist Manmohan Sabir. From 1952 to 1986, he had directed 10 films. Today’s film was his 6th film as a director. Some songs of the film were also written by PL Santoshi, Kaif Irfani and Anand Bakshi. The cast of the film was Jairaj, Sheila Ramani, Majnu, Naazi, David, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Master Navin and many others.

Music Director of this C grade stunt film was Anil Biswas, who was once upon a time an A grade composer and many other composers followed him as their ‘Guru’. Anil Biswas (7-7-1914 to 31-5-2003) started his career in music in the early 1930’s. Usually, one generation is considered as 25 to 30 years, but in film music the generation period is 12 to 15 years. So, in his career from early 30s to late 60s, Anil Biswas saw two generations of music lovers. It was easier for him to adapt to changing tastes of music from 30s to late 40s. However, to adapt to changed tastes from 50s to 60s, it became difficult for him. The audience tastes changed drastically from 1930s to 60’s music. In the 30s and the 40s , the music was closer to traditional Indian music, but in the 60s, the film music followed the world music trends like Rock N Roll, Twist and other types.

In this stage of his career, Anil Biswas was in two minds – whether to continue what he knew best or to change over to new way of film music demands. He chose to mix the two, but this took him nowhere. This film music was a compromise on his abilities. After this film, he did two more non descript movies – ‘Lucky Number’ (1961) and ‘Hamen Khelne Do’ (1962). At last he retired after completing his last film ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ (1965) and left for Delhi to serve at AIR (All India Radio), Delhi. He gave music to 90 films composing 767 songs. He also sang 59 songs in 31 films.

The heroine of this film Sheila Ramani was one of my early favourites, from the time I saw her with Dev Anand in film ‘Funtoosh’ (1956). Earlier too I had seen her in few films, but she looked quite attractive and glamorous in ‘Funtoosh’.

Sheila Ramani, a forgotten name today, but most of us still remember her in Navketan’s ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954) where she was cast as Anglo-Indian club Dancer – Sylvie. Sheila was born on 2-3-1932, in Sindh province. She was selected as ‘Miss Mussoorie 1948’ and adjudged ‘Miss Simla 1950’. Made her debut as Champa, the femme fatale of ‘Badnaam’ (1952), and revealed herself as a danseuse of charm in ‘Anand Math’ (1952). She was one of the few Sindhi actresses besides Sadhana, who made it big in Bollywood. She was mostly seen as upper class mod girl in the 50s, a role she enacted to perfection all through that swinging era in films like V Shantaram’s ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953), Sheikh Mukhtar’s ‘Mangu’ (1954), ‘Meenar’ (1954), ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), and ‘Funtoosh’ (1956).

Her Uncle Sheikh Latif alias Lachchu was a famous Pakistani producer who produced films like ‘Pattan’ (1955), ‘Khizan Kai Baad’ (1955), ‘Darbar-e-Habib’ (1956) etc. Sheila visited Karachi – Pakistan on the request of her uncle, to play the lead in Pakistani film ‘Anokhi’ (1956). The film was based on Hollywood’s ‘Fabulous Senorita’. “Gaadi Ko Chalana Babu, Zara Halkey Halkey Halkey, Zara Dil Ka Jaam Na Chalkey” sung by Zubaida Khanum was the popular song from the film which did modest to good business in Pakistan. The movie’s great music was composed jointly by Timir Baran (a Bengali who came from India for this purpose) and Hassan Latif. Sheila went back to India and remained as a middle-of-the-range performer in Bombay films. In the later part of her career, she was reduced to obscure films with titles that sounded like ‘Jungle King’ (1959), and ‘The Return of Superman’ (1960). In all, she acted in 24 films. Her last film was ‘Awaara Ladki’ (1967).

Sheila was very fond of sports especially football and swimming. Ballroom dancing was a virtual addiction for her and she used to go out for dancing as often as she could. Sheila was 5 feet four inches tall, and was so fastidious that any dress she would wear won’t be repeated for six months to come at least.

According to her son Rahul Cowasji, she married late Jall Edi Cowasji (President of Bombay Dyeing) on 31st March 1963 and retired from acting in 1962. Part of her family that remained in Pakistan converted to Islam. She was a Hindu. She used to live in Bombay with her husband Jall Cowasji till 1981. They moved to Khartoum (in Sudan, Africa) for 3 years and then to Sri Lanka for 3 years. After her husband’s death in 1984 she migrated to Australia on her own in the late 1980’s and lived in Sydney and Surfer’s Paradise until health problems required her to return to India in the new millennium. She used to live in her husband’s ancestral home in Mhow, near Indore (Madhya Pradesh). She was frail and bed ridden for few years before her death on 15-7-2015.

Her favorite Hindi film of her career was ‘Taxi Driver’ (1954). Sheila was also the leading lady of India’s first Sindhi film after partition – ‘Abana’ (1958), in which, young Baby Sadhana played her younger sister’s role. (Thanks to Cineplot and Sheila’s son Rahul, for some of the information in this Bio).

One more person from the cast of the film – Ram Mohan – needs introduction to our readers with his short Bio. Ram Mohan Sharma, a young, handsome lad from Ambala, was born on 2-11-1929. He was a graduate (BA) and had come to Bombay in 1945 in search of a career in cinema.

The youngster, who was in his early twenties, with fair colour, curly hairs & sharp features, approached Jagdish Sethi to get work in movies as an actor.  Jagdish Sethi found him sincere and gave him a supporting role in ‘Jaggu’ (52), which he was to make. The movie had very good music, scored by Hansraj Behl & it had moderate success, when released. Later, Ram Mohan got small roles in few movies & in 1954, Sethi Sahab took him in the romantic role opposite Shyama in ‘Pensioner’. The movie did not do well & it was the end of Ram Mohan’s career as hero.

Life goes on and he decided to accept any role offered to him. Soon he was a known name in the film circles. In ‘Do Behnen’ (1959), which had Shyama in double role, Ram Mohan enacted the role of villain, which gave his career a big boost as bad man. Later he came in contact with Sunil Dutt & Nargis and forged a permanent friendship with them. Although Ram Mohan mostly got roles of tough characters, but inside he was soft hearted. He was a member of film artists association. He requested Sunil Dutt Ji who was feeling depressed after Nargis Ji passed away, to help the ‘Have Nots’ of film industry. Virtually an encyclopedia of film industry, Ram Mohan knew every technician, junior artists as well as old & forgotten artists, who needed help. Whenever they both were free, they used to visit the ailing artists in hospital or their residences, to give them moral and financial support. Charatcter actor Rajan Haksar was in a charity hospital, after failure of his kidneys. Both benevolent persons visited the hapless artist to boost his spirit. Ram Mohan was a confidant of Asha Parekh, the kind hearted lady who was president of the Artists Association & they together helped many artists, who were in dire need of assistance.

Ram Mohan was also the vice president of CINTAA (Cine and TV Artists Association) for 4 years and secretary for 6 years. Ram Mohan Ji had high reputation every where and when he came to know about the miserable condition of AK Hangal, he met a political leader and arranged the financial help through Maharashtra Govt, on a regular basis. At the time of bereavement, he made it a point to help the family till all religious formalities were over. Every one in the film industry used to address him as Ram Mohan Ji ,to show their genuine respect to him.

In his career of more than five decades, Ram Mohan appeared in more than 250 movies (the number varies from 240 to 277), mostly in negative roles. He did not believe in self publicity and did his philanthropic work quietly. Ram Mohan was keeping indifferent health for six months, when his pillar of strength, his life partner passed away. Ram Mohan Ji also followed suit and breathed his last on 06th December 2015 .

Ram Mohan had 3 sons and 1 daughter, all very well settled in life. He will always be gratefully remembered by thousands of anonymous film artists who were helped by him. His memories will be cherished by his admirers, who loved his work on and off the screen. Truly, to find people like him, in this era is rarity. Let us hope his selfless work will inspire other persons connected with the film industry to help their less fortunate colleagues and the tradition of Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam set by him will continue. He found an admirer in Gulzar Sahab ,who always referred him as Ram Mohan Ji. Please see the credit titles of Izaazat, where his name is mentioned as Ram Mohan ji. (Thanks to Blog – ‘Beete Hue Din’, and Shri MN Sardana ji, for some of this information).

Today’s song certainly reminds us the type of club music of the late 1950s and early 1960s. This, of course, is not a club song, but a love song between hero and heroine. The song does not have anything to suggest the famous Anil Biswas touch of yore. It is one of those routine songs of those times.


Song – Dekh o babu dekh (Return of Mr Superman) (1960) Singer – Meena Kapoor, Lyricist – PL Santoshi, MD – Anil Biswas

Lyrics

dekh o baabu dekh

marzi ho to take baabu

o baabu dekh

pyaar se apna pocket bhar lo

beet gayi gar yoonhi jawaani
ho jaaoge late
o baabu dekh
dekh o baabu dekh

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 34
——————————————————————————————

Ten years back, 3rd June, 2009, five songs and five films. The films are,

Shart 1954
Return of Mr Superman 1960
Ganga Jamuna 1961
Khoj 1971
Ek Baar Muskura Do 1972

The film ‘Shart’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog with the iconic “Naa Ye Chaand Hogaa Na Taare Rahenge”. In terms of completion, the films ‘Shart’ and ‘Ganga Jamuna’ have been yippeee’d already. The remaining songs of the rest of the three films are waiting in the wings.

Coming of 1960s also saw the waning of the career of music director Anil Biswas. Active in the industry since 1935, Anil Biswas has made a very significant and a lasting contribution to the music of Hindi cinema. A trendsetter in many ways, Anil Da has also been responsible to introduce and groom some of the finest singing voices in the industry.

After two and half decades, in the beginning of 1960s, his body of work was reduced to just a trickle. In 1961, he directs the music for ‘Lucky Number’; in 1962, it is ‘Sautela Bhai’; and after many delays, ‘Chhoti Chhoti Baaten’ finally got released in 1965.  And it turns out to be his last film in the industry. He had actually moved to Delhi already, during this time frame (March of 1963) and was working at the All India Radio as the director of the National Orchestra and Chief Producer of the program ‘Sugam Sangeet’.

Today, we revisit one of his lesser known films – ‘Return of Mr Superman’ from 1960. The song is a mujra performance, presented on screen by Heera Sawant. I hope I am correctly identifying the main dancer in this clip. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please confirm or correct me. There are other actors in the audience that can be identified. We can clearly make out David and Rajan Haksar. There is another gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes. I request the readers and friends to please help put a name to this face. Also, there is a trio of supporting singers on screen, who lip sync the chorus lines. Again, the request is to help identify these ladies.
[Ed Note: Prakash ji has identified the “. . .gentleman with ruffled hair and a large round eyes.” as Jagdish Kanwal. Thanks Prakash ji.]

The film is produced and directed by Manmohan Sabir, for his home banner – Manmohan Pictures, Bombay. The film has seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, written by four songwriters – Anand Bakshi, Kaif Irfani, Manmohan Sabir, and PL Santoshi. This song is written by Manmohan Sabir. The music, of course, is by Anil Biswas.

The cast of the film is listed as Jairaj, Sheela Ramani, Helen, David, Naazi, Majnu, Shammi, Ram Mohan, Rajan Haksar, Jagdish Kanwal, Heera Sawant, Nazeer Kashmiri, Mohinder, Saleem Raza, Robert, Gulab, Ramesh, Arvind, Harun, Master Naveen, Krishna, and Funny Walker.

There is one interesting discussion that we have had earlier on this blog, relating to one song purportedly from this film. The song is “Stella O Stella O Stella”. The curiosity about this song is that it has also appeared earlier in the film ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ from 1959. This earlier film also has music directed by Anil Biswas. On our blog, it so happens that this song, as it appears in ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is already posted; and the same song as it appears in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’ has not yet been posted.

I would like to bring to the notice of interested readers, the fact that this song does NOT appear in the list of songs given in Geet Kosh for the film ‘Return of Mr Superman’. The original song, as appearing in ‘Chaar Dil Chaar Raahen’, written by Sahir Sb, is the correct attribution of this song. The appearance in the later film ‘Return of Mr Superman’ is simply a repeat use, probably inserted at a short notice to fill a certain scenario. The song certainly does not belong to this later film.

Coming back to the song for today – as one listens carefully, one realizes that this is actually a ghazal that has been presented as a mujra. An interesting variation. I am sure we will find more such instances, if we start looking carefully. Earlier, we have identified a couple of ghazals that has been presented as qawwaalis (and I am sure there are more of such instances also). So now we have another variation – I am sure we will find more cases of a ghazal presented as a mujra. As one listens to the wordings, it is really a very endearing expression –

dil to tujh ko de diya, ab jaan bhi de denge hum
jaan lene se na ab, ae jaan e mann ghabraaiye

So, remembering Anil Biswas – his rememberance day was 31st May, just three days ago. Getting on to another 10 year connect. And getting to listen to this wonderful mujra. . .

Editor note-With this song, Meena Kapoor completes 100th song as a singer in the blog.

“Phool Aur Kaante”(1948) was directed by Achyut Ranade for Navyug Chitrapat, Bombay. The movie had Lalita Pawar, Salvi, Saroj Borkar, Mohan Sahgal, Master Ratan, Swaroop Sahgal, Tulsi Bai, Shalini, Chaube etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it. Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Phool aur Kaante”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Vishwamitra Adil is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dada Chandekar.

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


Song-Ik teer jigar par khaa ke ham(Phool aur Kaante)(1948) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics- Vishwamitra Adil, MD-Dada Chandekar

Lyrics

ik teer jigar pe khaa kar hum
ik teer jigar pe khaa kar hum
na idhar ke rahe
na udhar ke rahe
na idhar ke rahe

The records were released under fim name “Dil Bahaar”, but this movie remained unreleased and later these eight songs were utilised in “Aakaashpari” (1958).

Four songs have been covered in the past.

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

“Jail Yatra”(1947) was produced and directed by Gajanan Jageerdaar for Jaageerdaar productions, Bombay. This “Social” movie had Gajanan Jageerdaar, Kamini Kaushal, Raj Kapoor, Harish, Bikram Kapoor, Badri Prasad, Sunalini Devi, Dixit, Ramlal, Hemavati, Pratima Devi , Sagar, Munawwar Khan, Rammurty, Satyanarayan, Ramlal, Shamlal etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Jail Yatra”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Ninu Majumdar and Meena Kapoor. Sajjan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a dance song. Gajanan Jageerdaar , the hero of the movie, most probably lip synced in Ninu Majumdar’s voice. I am less sure about the lady lip syncing in Meena Kapoor’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-O gori kahaan chali us paar (Jail Yaatra)(1947) Singers-Ninu Majumdar, Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-Ninu Majumdar

Lyrics

o gori kahaan chali us paar
o gori kahaan chali us paar
chhod ke gaanvon ki bahaar

rasiya jaaungi us paar

Blog Day :

Today (11 march 2019) finds myself out of my comfort zone, viz outside my base and away from the familiar routine. Today I am in Lucknow and I will be here for three days.

I thought that it is a capital city and so I would be blessed with good internet connection, namely high speed internet and wi fi, but that is not the case. So I am dependent on my dongle and I am thankful that at least this is working, even if slowly. I hope to at least ensure that my days here are not dot days as far as the blog is concerned.

Here is a song from “Dhanyawad”(1948). This remonstrating with the Almighty genre of song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Lyrics are by Sajjan (the character artist). Music is composed by A R Qureshy.

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

With this song, “Dhanyawad”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho krishn muraari(Dhanywaad)(1948) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho
krishn muraari
krishn muraari
Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho
krishn muraari
krishn muraari
mitti mein mili jaati yahaan
duniya hamaari
krishn muraari
mitti mein mili jaati yahaan
duniya hamaari
krishn muraari

jholi meri khaali hai
aankhon mein andhera
jholi meri khaali hai
aankhon mein andhera
jab roothh gaye tum hi to phir
kaun hai mera
jab roothh gaye tum hi to phir
kaun hai mera
majhdhaar ki naiyya ko hai bas
aas tumhaari
aas tumhaari
aas tumhaari
Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho
krishn muraari
krishn muraari
mitti mein mili jaati yahaan
duniya hamaari
krishn muraari

bhagwaan ho patthar na bano
ab na sataao
bhagwaan ho patthar na bano
ab na sataao
duniya basaane waale
meri bigdi banaao
duniya basaane waale
meri bigdi banaao
ro ro ke mari jaati hai
ye daasi tumhaari
krishn muraari
krishn muraari

Song-Barbaad mohabbat ki chhoti si kahaani hai (Phool Aur Kaante)(1948) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Vishwamitra Adil, MD-Dada Chandekar

Lyrics

barbaad mohabbat ki
chhoti si kahaani hai
barbaad mohabbat ki
chhoti si kahani hai
ik toota hua dil hai
ik teri nishaani hai
ik teri nishaani hai

saawan bhi gaya kab ka
baadal bhi gaye kab ke
phir bhi meri aankhon se
ashqon ki rawaani hai
ashqo ki rawaani hai
barbaad mohabbat ki
chhoti si kahaani hai

taqdeer ki thokar ne ae
wo zakhm lagaaya hai
wo zakhm lagaaya hai
?? umangen hain
khamosh jawaani hai
khamosh jawaani hai
barbaad mohabbat ki
chhoti si kahaani hai

mar jaate to achha tha
par haay re majboori
par haay re majboori
hum mar bhi nahin sakte
wo maut suhaani hai
wo maut suhaani hai
barbaad mohabbat ki
chhoti si kahaani hai
