Today’s song is a funny Parody song taking place in a Mental Hospital and the singing artistes on the screen are all hospital patients including the Hero of the film. The song is from the film Do Dulhe-1955.

This was a film made by United Film Art, Bombay, with the joint producer Gemini Pictures, Madras. The entire film was shot in Gemini Studios, Madras. This was a remake of a very successful Tamil film ” Manam Pola Mangalyam”- 1953, in which Gemini Ganesan ( real name R.Ganesh) and Savitri had acted. This was their first film together. Later they did many films, but from this film onwards their love story started and Ganesan made Savitri his second wife.

In the 30’s and 40’s decades there were many films made in Poona/Bombay and Calcutta which were Bilinguals, i.e. in Marathi and Hindi as well as Bangla and Hindi. This was primarily to grab the local and all India markets. In those days, there were no Hindi films from the south. With the launch of film Chandralekha-1948, first time producer director S S Vasan released his film’s Hindi version on a grand scale all over India with about 700 prints. It was a very bold and maiden effort, but it paid very rich dividends to Vasan.

Encouraged by Vasan’s success, other film companies of South, including AVM entered the fray and from 1949 Bilinguals and Trilingual films were made in Tamil , Telugu and Hindi. Within a few years film remakes in Kannada and Malayalam also started in Madras. Compared to other languages, Kannada and Malayalam film production had started late in their states. Madras took its advantage. Few Tamil film makers made remakes even in Sinhala languages for the Sri Lanka market. By that time their Burmese market was lost. This went on till about the 70’s. After that film makers resorted to dubbing the film or selling the rights to Bombay to make remakes and the import of Hindi remakes from the south ended.

It was interesting to note that during that period, southern film makers had some favourites among Actors, actresses and MDs. Bombay film artistes used to be very eager to go to Madras for shooting, because of few reasons. One- their payments were immediate. Secondly, their production schedules were well planned and the work culture was disciplined. Thirdly, their stay, transport, travel and food arrangements were impeccable. All in all, they had only to go there and work diligently, without having tensions, usually seen in the Bombay film industry.

I have been seeing southern language films since the late 40’s. Their films used to be very entertaining and suitable for family viewing. There was ‘ something for everybody’ in their films. Comedy, Tragedy, Adventure, Fighting, Tears, Love, Lullaby and what not ! But then this made their films lengthy and full of too many characters and subplots.

Today’s film was also one such film. The film was directed by K.J.Mahadevan and the MD was B.S.Kalla. Many south Indian composers had tried their hand at giving music to Hindi films in the 50s decade. MDs like, Ghantasala, B S Kalla, S D Parthasarathi, E.Shankar, C.Subramanyam, B.Laxman, Vishwanathan, R.Sudarshanam, S V Venkataramana, T R Ramanathan and T G Lingappa are few of the less known names-for Hindi belt-from south who gave melodious music, but somehow they did not succeed here. One reason could be their use of southern singers, for whom acceptability was a problem here for Hindi songs. Names like Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayana Rao and the pair of Vishwanathan- Ramamurthy were at least known names here. Their films like Piya milan-55, Suvarna Sundari-58 and Naya Aadmi-56 had many popular songs.

Balkrishna Kalla and E. Shanker team gave music to films like Mangala-50, Sansar-51, Mr.Sampat-52, Bahut din Huye-54. Balkrishna Kalla with Mohd. Shafi gave music to Krishna Kanhaiya-52. With Parthasarathi and Rajeshwar Rao he gave music to Nishan-49. Independently he gave music to only one film-Do Dulhe-54. B.S.Kalla had also done a small role in the film Mangala-50. The southern composers gave music only to dubbed films or remakes essentially.

The lyricist was south’s favourite Pt. Indra. The cast was huge. Main artistes were Shyama, Sajjan, Vananja, Agha, David, Lalita Pawar, Kanhaiyalal, B M Vyas, Achala Sachdev, Suryakantam, Ishwar lal etc etc. The hero was Sajjan- and in a double role too !. Some of the readers will be surprised with this name. Unfortunately artistes like Sajjan, who were multi-skilled, did not get due recognition in Hindi film industry or in even the general film going public. Artistes like Badri Pershad, Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, Ranjan etc. were experts in fields other than film acting and had achieved expertise, name and fame in different fields. Sajjan was also one such artiste. He was a film actor, Stage actor, writer of Poetry, assistant film director, a poet, lyricist, Dialogue writer and a T.V.Artiste.

Born on January 15, 1921 in Jaipur, his full name was Sajjan Lal Purohit, a Pushkarna Bramhin. For many generations in his family, no one was interested in music or acting. He was famous with his first name in the movie world. Sajjan did his graduation from Jawahar college, Jodhpur. He had a desire to be a lawyer but not an actor.

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Film Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films like Masoom (1941), Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Bombay. In Bombay he knew Prithwiraj Kapoor from his Calcutta days. He joined the Prithvi Theatre and worked in dramas like, Shakuntala, Pathan, Deewar, Aahuti, Kalakar, Kisan Paisa etc etc. Here he came into contact with Shammi, Raj, Shashi kapoor, Omprakash, Premnath, Zohra Saigal, B M Vyas, Ram Ganguli, Shankar, jaikishen and others. Afterwards, he started doing dramas separately. In ” Dhola Marwan” his heroine was Snehprabha Pradhan. He did many One Man Shows too.

He was a writer of Poetry. He participated in many gatherings of poets. His poetry book ” Jawan” became so popular that even Nehru had bought 100 copies of it. It was reprinted four times.

In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time great showman Raj Kapoor also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and for the film Vakil Sahib-43 and got Rs. 35 as salary.

A poet by heart, Sajjan showed His talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena -1944 and lyrics for Door Chalen -1946, Jail Yatra-47 and Dhanyavad -1948.

His acting debut film was Mera Suhag-47. After that Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. His heroine was Nalini Jayvant. As a Hero, he worked with Geeta Bali,Nutan,Nimmi,Shyama,Shakila, Nalini Jaywant etc etc.

Now Sajjan was well established in the film world. In 1950s- 60s Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films like, Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, paridhaan, Do Dulhe, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam, Jhanjhar, Halla- Gulla. As a hero his last film was Kabuliwala-61 and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru.

Artiste of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram-Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

Sajjan acted in more than 150 films. Though he was a reasonably good actor, he felt very awkward while singing a song on screen. His Producers and Directors knew this and they gave him minimum songs. Thus he is on record in his 150+ films to have sung around 20 odd songs only, in spite of being a Hero in some films. After retirement, Sajjan was not in good health, but he wrote a book ‘ Ras-Bhav ‘, discussing all the 9 Rasas as enunciated by Bharat Muni’s Treatise on “Natya Shastra”. He also published a book on the Birth Centenary of Prithviraj Kapoor, whom he revered very much. Sajjan died on 17-5-2000.

Film Do Dulhe was an entertaining film. I saw this film again yesterday evening. Here is the story, in short…

Parvati/ Paro (Shyama) is a motherless daughter of B.M.Gupta (B.M.Vyas). Her step mother (Lalita Pawar) and step sister Dulari (Vanaja) torture her with household chores etc. Dulari’s marriage is arranged with Kundan (Sajjan), who comes from Madras to see Dulari. On the way he meets Paro and they fall in love. Paro’s marriage is being arranged with an old widower Seth Deen Dayal (David) who has lent 15 thousand to Paro’s father. Kundan goes to Madras to bring money to pay Deen Dayal . When he comes he sees Paro’s marriage preparations. He returns heartbroken to Madras. Meanwhile Paro also runs away from home and goes to Madras to meet Kundan. They meet but due to misunderstanding he leaves her.

Kundan is caught by mental Hospital employees as their patient kanhaiya-a look alike(Sajjan again). The patient Kanhaiya escapes and is brought as Kundan to Dulari’s house. After a few (actually many) coincidences, everything is clear and finally Kundan marries Paro and a recovered Kanhaiya marries Dulari. Thus Do Dulhe get Do Dulhans and the audience feels relieved from seeing further ridiculous levels the story could go to !

Today’s song is the 6th song from this film to feature here. This is a funny parody song sung by patients of the mental hospital on the screen and after seeing this video you are supposed to ROFL !

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 12
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day in 2009, the film ‘Darling Darling’ made its debut on our blog. This 1977 production from Fortune Films International, has six songs. The song that brought in this film to our blog is the Kishore Kumar favorite – “Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho”.

Then, over the past decade, only one more song of this film was added. And now, in the 10 Year Challenge series, we are bringing on the third song of this film. An interesting side thought – maybe in the years to come, this blog and its data, relating to various stats, as well as patterns of how the films went from debut to yippee, will become fodder for PhD research projects at universities that have film studies departments. Research scholars will be analyzing such data to find correlations between the patterns of appearance of the songs of a film, and the perceived quality of its music, and its popularity curve. Interesting food for thought, right?

This 1977 film of Dev Anand, is not his own Navketan production. It was still the 1970s, and despite a descending graph, Dev Anand was still in demand enough to be called upon by other friendly production houses to play the lead role. In 1977, he was in his 54th year, and still going strong as the hero.

The film, from the banner of Fortune Films International, was directed by Gogi Anand. The star cast of this film reveals many a names which can be considered as fixtures in Dev Anand films; check out the names – Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Mehmood, Jeevan, Nadira, Dhiraj Kumar, Poonam, Durga Khote, Sajjan, Helen, Ranjan, Raj Verma, Shivraj, Shaifali, V Gopal, Jankidas, Hercules, Jhankna Desai, Geeta Khanna, Juliyan, Baby Guddi, Baby Padmini, Monto, Sheikh, Beerbal, Shahid Bijnauri, and Dhanna.

This song is performed in a mental asylum – a device that is used by directors to inject free format comic relief into the storyline. Dev Anand and Mehmood are leading the song performance. Dev Anand is sporting a full  beard as part of a disguise, and Mehmood appears in a tie and his birthday suit – well, almost 🙂 . As the song progresses, one realizes that they are on a search and rescue mission of some sort, as we see interludes of familiar faces as captives under duress. We get fleeting glimpses of Zeenat Aman, Sajjan and Nadira. We have already had a glimpse of Jeevan, in the very first scene of this song, leaving the premises with a large suitcase in his hand. One can also identify junior actor Sheikh, just behind Dev Anand and Mehmood, as the opening lines of this song are being rendered. I am sure there are more junior artists in this crowd of ‘mad’ persons which can be named, but I am not able to identify more.
[Note: Regulars will recall actor Sheikh – he has performed on screen, the iconic qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“, in the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958).]

The song is penned by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by RD Burman. The singing voices are of Kishore Kumar and Mehmood.

This brings on the third song of this film – across a span of ten years. 🙂

In the early era of the Talkie, most films were based on Mythology, History or Fantasy stories. As the years went by,the films were made on social themes and still later the films were produced on the stories written in their ‘story departments’ weaving mystery, humour, misfortune and heroics imaginatively.
