Today’s song is from the film Chanda ki Chandani-1948.

The film was directed by Dwaraka Khosla, the lyricist was D.N.Madhok and the music Director was Gyan Dutt.

When I was looking at the cast of this film, my eyes were stuck on one name and a smile came to my face.

From the day films started being made in India, in the first stage, no one was ready to work in films. In the second stage, no one from a respectable family was coming forward to work in films. In the third stage, very few educated people joined the films. However, as the film industry got well established, the picture changed and highly educated people from respectable families joined Cinema world. Not only that, working in films became a matter of prestige. It brought fame and money both ! The film industry attracted all talented people from various places.

Working in films also became an attraction for many producers, directors, lyricists, singers, music directors,cinematographers, choreographers etc. In fact, people who had no direct involvement in the actual role playing too became attracted to be seen on the silver screen. Thus, we find many examples of such ‘ unconnected ‘ film personalities to appear on the silver screen at least once.

Take the case of Music Director S.N.Tripathi, for example. When he joined the film industry through Bombay talkies, for fun, he first did a small role in the film Jeevan Naiya-1936, which was also the first film of Ashok Kumar as a Hero. But after that film, after 10 years, he started acting in films and finally he ended up acting in 83 films in his career, while giving music to 107 films and even directing 10 films ! This is the charisma of films !!. Another example I remember offhand is that of music director Jaikishen ( of Shankar- Jaikishen fame), who appeared as a singer in the film Begunah-1957.

Among lyricists, I remember Dewan Sharar, doing a small role in the film Karma-1933, who ended up appearing in 7 more films in the next 20 years ! Not only this, but even Lata Mangeshkar ( initially as a need), Asha Bhosle, R D Burman etc have appeared on the silver screen. Mukesh and Talat Mehmood had done Hero’s roles too. There could be many such examples and our readers can quote them.

In my younger days ( which was too long ago ! ), I remember Alfred Hitchcock, director of Murder mystery films, had the habit of appearing at least once in evry film that he made, either as a part of a crowd or in a negligible cameo role. During that period, it became a craze all over the world to spot him in his films- which was a difficult task and people saw films many times just to locate him.

All this came to my mind, when I saw the name of Neelkanth Tiwari in the cast of the film Chanda ki Chandani-1948. Tiwari was a well known author and a lyricist in Hindi films. This winner of Sahitya Academy Award, had a penchant for appearing on Silver screen. He appeared in at least 2 films – Apna paraya-1942 and Chanda ki Chandani-1948. He is also said to have appeared along with Dev Anand (with whom he was quite close) in one of his films- name of which I do not know. Not only this he also sang a song in his first film Nirdosh-1941 !

Other members of the cast of this film were Jairaj, Rehana, E.Bilimoria, Moni Chatterjee, Kesari, Veera, Ameer bano etc. The case of E. Bilimoria is strange. He became an actor by accident (reminds me of Motilal and Ranjan too). In the early era of the Talkie films the Bilimoria brothers were very famous. First it was D (Dinshaw) and then came E (Eddie) Bilimoria. Eddie was born at Bilimora,in Gujarat, in 1900. At the age of just 13 years he ran away from house to Kirkee (near Poona), to his uncle, to become a Fireman in Railways. Here, he became a Door keeper in a Cinema house and also learnt operating the film projector. Due to ill health, he was brought to Bombay.

One day he went to Imperial Studio to meet his brother Dinshaw, who worked in films. Mistaking him to be Dinshaw, make-up was done to him and he played a role in the film ‘Punjab Mail’. Then onwards he started working regularly in films. As a Hero his first silent film was ‘Raj Ramani’. He worked as Hero in 7 Imperial films and 10 films of Ranjit Studio. His Heroines were Putli, Shanta, Sultana. Madhuri, Padma, Panna and others. When Talkie films started he was Hero in 32 films made by Ranjit, opposite Gauhar, Shanta, Kamla, Mehtab, Madhuri and Sitara etc. He worked in 15 films opposite Madhuri only. Fencing, shooting and horse riding were his specialties as a stunt Hero. He was the First in India to wear Cowboy dress in stunt films.

Char chakram-32, Miss 1933-33, and Nadira-34 were his Hit films. In the film ‘ Sipahi ki sajni’-36, he jumped into Sea from a flying plane, without duplicate. Daredevil stunts were his hallmark. There were hundreds of stitches on his body. After 1939 he stopped getting Hero roles, so he did other character roles. After 1953, he was reduced to only an Extra. He did acting till 1973 and then took up a job in a Fridge and AC shop. He stayed in a flat in Kemps corner in Bombay. His last days were not very happy. E.Bilimoria died on 18-2-1981 at Bombay.

He acted in 73 Talkie films, directed 1 film ( sone ki chidiya-48) and also sang 4 songs in 4 films. His first film was Radha Rani-32 and last was Honeymoon-73.
( adapted from ‘Inhe na Bhulana’ (in Gujarati) by Harish Raghuwanshi, with thanks.)

Another name of interest was that of Veera. This name too may not be known to many. Veera was from a Parsi family.Her full name was Veera Ankaleshwaria. Obviously, her family came from Ankaleshwar,a small industrial town(now), in Gujarat. She started her career in films as a Heroine opposite Nasir khan in the film Mazdoor-1945. Then came Shikari-46 and later Eight days-46, both had Ashok Kumar as the Hero. Both the films were from Filmistan. Her last film as Heroine was Tohfa, opposite Rehman and Leela opposite Agha , both films from 1947. Then she stopped getting Heroine roles and shifted to side roles. In all she did 22 films.

Her other films were, Veena, Ziddi, Chanda ki Chandani- all 48, Sanwaria-49, Hamara Ghar and hamari beti- 1950, Hamari shaan, Ramjanma and Sagar-1951, Aasmaan, izzat, Moti mahal, Sanskar and Shin shinaki boobla boo-all1952, Dana Pani-53, Boot polish and Sheeshe ki deewar both 1954.

She married Mohsin Abdulla, who had worked in Bombay Talkies as a writer. He was the younger brother of actress Renuka Devi ( Begum Mirza) and ex husband of actress Neena (Shaheeda). After the marriage, both migrated to Pakistan in 1955. No news after that.

Today’s song is a good one, sung by Sulochana Chavan and B. Hussain. I do not know who this B. Hussain was. HFGK mentions the singer of this song as Geeta Roy, but the names on the actual gramophone record are different. This song and the record photo was uploaded by Jaffer Bhai. Thanks to him for this rare song. Let us enjoy this duet – which is the 7th song of this film to feature on this Blog.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 25

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This discovery of a repeat song will have to be termed as Mother of All Repeat Songs. And just in case, before you start wondering whether poor dear me has decided to take a step off the deep end, let me explain.

Ostensibly searching for something else totally disconnected with repeat songs in Hindi films, I chanced to read this caption on a YouTube link. The face in the thumbnail image is neither Bharat Bhushan or Shashi Kapoor. And so, intrigued as I was, I clicked on the thumbnail with the face of R Madhavan, to play this song whose caption was sounding so very familiar. It turns out, yes, it is a repeat song – a repeat of the very endearing and a must-have favorite from the 1969 film ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’. This signature track has been the theme of many an amorous message of love for the connoisseurs of the Hindi film music.

Ah, but the story of my discovery had just started. I checked out the name of the film. Turns out it is ‘Dil Vil Pyaaar Vyaar’ from 2002. I track down the Wikipedia page of this film. I had not heard of this film earlier. The story line weaves around the romance lives of young friends. Seemed like a run-of-the-mill rom-com tales that abound the landscape of the Hindi film world. An immediate analogy that came to mind, from the era familiar to me, was ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ of 1957. Similar theme, romance tales of three young friends.

Ah but what wonderful and divine music that film has. I will not dwell on the delightful music created by the legendary Madan Mohan – I am sure all readers and friends are already very much taken in by the songs of that film from 1957.

Getting back to ‘DVPV’ (‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar’), I was thinking – seems like the producer of this film did not have much imagination to engage song writers and MDs to create some fresh songs. So he chose to easy route to re-use this song.

But as I continued down the Wikipedia page, and reached the Soundtrack section, my eyes remained agape in wonder. The film has 13 songs listed. And (OK now, hold your breath) – ALL, I repeat ALL songs are repeats of earlier hit songs of the 60s to 80s time period. Looking closey at the list, the second realization, and a big one, hit home. ALL the thirteen tracks are creations of RD Burman. Now this discovery surely something great and different.

A little more research and I am able to locate more information online. The producer of this film is a diehard fan of RD Burman and the music created by him. And this film ‘DVPV’ has been created as a tribute for his favorite MD. So, a story and a screenplay was conjured and 13 of RDB’s famous hits have been woven into it.

The producer of this film is Vivek Vaswani. As it turns out, he himself is the author of the story line of this film. The screenplay has been adapted from the story by Sujit Sen.

Of course the credits for the song will remain with the original creators. But for this film, the music for the songs has been re-arranged and re-recorded by Babloo Chakravorty. So all songs in this film are recorded in different voices.

Ah yes, in case you are wondering – yes, I plan to bring on board all the thirteen songs of this film, in good time. Quite a bonanza here for this series.

This wonderful song from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ has been re-recorded in the voice of Hariharan. On screen, it is performed by R Madhvan. I am sure all are familiar with this new name. My introduction to Madhavan has been through the 2009 hit film ‘3 Idiots’. I will try to say more about this film and its performers, in subsequent episodes, as I venture to cover all the songs of this film.

Other actors we see in this clip are Asrani and Namrata Shirodkar. The wonders that a song can do has not changed across the decades that Hindi films have been created, exhibited and watched. It has only become better, more imaginative and more incredulous. In the very early days of this blog itself, Atul ji had come to a conclusion, and he has so documented it in many a write up. That a situation in Hindi films takes about 3 minutes or so to be transformed. All it takes is a song. The song starts in a particular mood, with a particular expectation, and by the time the song ends, the desired mood and desired outcome is achieved and the expectations realized. In many earlier such discussions, we have seen quite wondrous and amazing things happen during the duration of a song.

With this song, things are no different. Rather, the stretch on the gullibility of comprehension is a bit too much. Madhavan is on a stage, participating in a music competition. Things to be noted about the setting. The stage where the performance happens is designed like a music CD. And the effect is complete with the singer handling a very old fashioned standing microphone. The antics Madhavan attempts with this mike takes us even further back to Elvis Presley performing live on stage, back in the 1950s.

His lady love, Namrata, is at the airport, already checked in for a flight that will take her thousands of miles away to another country, away from her beau. And voila. A ‘strategically’ placed TV screen within her view starts to telecast the music competition just as Madhavan is to present his song. The song starts. It is the replay of the famous aria – this one, from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’.

All it takes in one stanza for the lady love to make up her mind to abandon her plans to leave the country, and she decides to go back into the beckoning arms of her lover. The second stanza is even more wondrous. The lady exits from the airport, starts to drive to where the competition is in progress. And, another VOILA – this time in capital letters – she drives through the Bombay traffic, with all her memories about times spent with her lover replaying on the mind’s screen, reaches the location and is on stage with her lover, by the time the second stanza comes to a close. And yes, even has time for a change of attire. The applause by the audience is still in progress as she makes an entrance through a hazy and foggy doorway, with the director making utmost efforts to make it appear like a fairy descending through the clouds.

I remember having seen a cartoon long long back advising filmgoers to please leave their logic and reasoning outside the door, when entering a cinema hall to watch a Hindi film (or maybe any film for that matter).

So mission accomplished. In less than three minutes, from the verge of just starting to board her flight, the lady love makes it from the airport to the competition stage and into the arms of her lover.

Long be loved – the wondrous Hindi film song. Yes, all it takes is a song.

Song – Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan. . .  (Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar) (2002) Singer – Hariharan, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman
[Music rearranged by Babloo Chakravarty]

Lyricsa

tum bin jaaun kahan
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

dekho mujhe sar se kadam tak
sirf pyaar hoon main
gale se lagaa lo ke tumhaara
bekaraar hoon main
tum kya jaano ke bhatakta fira
kis kis gali
tum ko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

rah bhi sakoge tum kaise
ho ke mujhse judaa
hat jaayengi deewaaren
sun ke meri sadaa
aanaa hogaa tumhen mere liye
saathi meri
sooni raah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa kabhi
tumko chaah ke…
tum bin

From the above table we can see that the songs for the very first movie of 1972 are so far not available. This movie is ‘Aakraant’.

Thereafter the fifth movie ‘Achchhaa Buraa’ has been introduced by us on the blog on 07.01.2022 and that takes us to next missing movie on the blog which is ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’. This movie is the seventeenth movie in this list alphabetically. I could not find the songs for this movie ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’ and I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

That brings us to the next movie which is ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’. Today we introduce this movie from 1972 . I was not earlier aware of the songs of this movie and so far listened this today’s song while noting it down only.

Today’s movie ‘Bahaaron Phool Barsaao’ was directed by Umesh Mathur for Vasant Neerja Pictures, Bombay. The star cast of the film includes Anjana, Dheeraj Kumar, Sulochana, Sujata, Manvendra Chitnis, Roopali, Neelam, Pal Sharma, Radheshyam, Satyajit, Mubarak, Pardesi, Ved Bhushan, Nandu Rathi, Indira Bansal, Chandrima Bhaduri, Dhoomal, Master Sonu and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.03.1972.

This movie has six songs, and all are written by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Rajan Pal. His name is new for me. From the  HFGK listings, it appears that this is the only film for which he has provided the music. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

जो तुम चाहते हो
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

जहां मिल के गाये थे

तुम्हें भूल जाएँ
तुम्हें भूल जाएँ

The human mind is constantly attracted by imaginary things.He would like to have supernatural powers and do things which he only dreams about. He knows he can not do so, so looks out for those who can do them. A normal person likes to see a man do super-human activity like fighting with hungry lions or teaching a lesson to Roadside Romeos or punishing wrong-doers etc. If possible he would like to do these things himself, but it is not possible for an ordinary man. If someone is thrashing a thief or stopping someone from troubling hapless women, the public gathers and cheers him. We have seen it many times.

Secrecy, Puzzles, riddles, Mystery and fantasy are the initiators of curiosity in Human Mind. The mind dreams of the things it wishes, but can not do and knows that it can not do. That is where the seeds of Action films and stunts are sown.

The film makers took advantage of this human nature and made films about supernatural heroes who rode Horses, fought 10 goons at a time, jumped into and out of fire with ease and generally staked their lives to save the poor and the weak in the society. The audience simply loved it and action films established themselves. There is nothing childish about it. These movies help the majority of moviegoers enjoy such superhuman acts vicariously.

When film making started in India, it was but natural, because of our heritage, that most initial films were mythological. With the beginning of silent films from Raja Harishchandra in 1913 to 1921 almost all films were Mythologicals.

The First off-beat film was ”England Returned or Bilet ferat” a Comedy film made by Indo British films, Calcutta, released on 2-2-1921.

The First fantasy film was ‘Princess Badar or The tale of Kamar-al-Zamin’ made in 1922 by Madan Theatres, Calcutta.

The First Costume film was ‘The song of the slave‘-1922,made by Photoplay Syndicate,Calcutta.

The First Crime film was ‘The Kala Naag or Triumph of Justice‘-1924, made by Kohinoor films,Bombay. The First detective film was ‘ Justice or Nyaya’-1925, made by Premier Photoplay, Poona.

And finally the First Action film was ”The choice of a Bride“-1929, made by Surya Film Company, Bangalore.

After this there were many Action films made in Silent movies till the last silent film in India-” Niyoti”-1934, made by Aurora Film Corporation, Calcutta, released on 15-9-1934.

( Thanks to Dr.R K Verma and his book “Silent Cinema”).

When the Talkie films started , here too Mythologicals led the list. However the First Action Film in Talkie was ” Dagabaz Aashiq”-1932, closely followed by another action film “Do Badmash” made by Imperial and Ranjit respectively.

After this there was no looking back. There was enough material available for Mythological, Historical, religious, social, fantasy and Costume films in India,with its rich Heritage, but for Action and Stunt film stories, movie makers looked to the west.

The legendary King Arthur, Robin Hood, William Tell, Zorro and Tarzan etc all became sources of inspiration for action and stunt films in India. Skillful adaptation and Indianization of western Heroes coupled with the fertile imagination of story writers in our studios provided enough fodder. It is through this that emerged the ideas of ‘Masked men’,’Hunterwali’ and various Baghis.

Out of these the Tarzan stories were more popular as they combined Mystery, jungles, superhuman powers and great strengths which tamed the wild animals. Countless films were made with Tarzan as the central character.

The original Tarzan story was written by Sir Edgar Rice Burrows and it was first published in 1912, followed by its 23 sequels. The story proved to be immensely popular. No wonder, then, that it attracted the Hollywood producers.

The First Silent film ” Tarzan of the Apes” was released in 1918 in which Tarzan’s role was done by Elmo Lincoln and Jane Porter was Enid Markey. From 1918 to 2008, Hollywood made 89 Tarzan Films.

The First Talkie film on Tarzan was ” Tarzan-The Ape Man ” in 1932. Johnny Weissmuller was doing Tarzan’s role and Maureen O’Sulivan was Jane in it.

Johnny was a German bred Romanian settled in America. He was an Olympic Swimming Champion with 5 Gold medals. The pair of Johnny and Maurine was very popular. Johnny Weissmuller did 12 films of Tarzan from 1932 to 1948. 6 films with Maureen, 2 without Jane and 4 with Brenda Joyce. After Johnny 5 Tarzan films were done by Lex Barker and 6 were done by Gordon Scot. After 1960, there were different Tarzan actors in every film.

The Chimpanzee “Cheetah” was there in films from 1932 to 1960, when he died.

In most films, the scripts were loyal to the novels. However, in the novel, Tarzan and Jane get married and they have a son too. But in films, they never got married and their son ” BOY ” was found and adopted by Jane.

Tarzan films attracted Indian film makers too.As far back as the first decade of Talkie films in India , an attempt was made to make films like Tarzan. The name was too obvious to be copied, so a new name was invented- ZAMBO. The adventurous producer Mohan Bhavnani always liked to do experiments and he made a film Zambo- The Ape man in 1937 (aka Sher E Jungle). It had almost a similar story like that of Tarzan but it was fully indianised. Obviously, this film became very successful, because Bhavnani made a sequel ” Zambo ka Beta ” in 1939.

In both the films the Hero was the same-Navin Yagnik. Navin was a well known stunt film actor who did social films also with the same ease. Navin was born in Calcutta on 3-10- 1912. His father was from U.P. and mother from Bengal. During school days, he was more interested in sports,dramas and oratory. He did not complete his Matriculation, but ran away to Bombay, to become an actor-against the wishes of his family.

He joined Sagar Films in 1930, as an Extra, without salary. After a few months he got Rs.35 pm, but no credited roles. After an year or so, he left Sagar and joined Mohan Bhavnani’s Ajanta Film company. He first worked in the film ‘ The Mill ‘-34. Unfortunately, this film was banned for 2 years. The film was based on a story by Munshi Premchand and depicted the poor conditions of mill workers in Bombay. The Mill Owners’ Association brought pressure on the Government and got the film banned. After 2 years, the film was released as ” Ghareeb Parivar”-36 aka ‘Daya ki Devi’. Two more films and Navin became Hero in the film ” Pyar ki maar”-35.

In her autobiography, actress Hansa Wadkar says,” My Hero in this film was one Navin Yagnik, a handsome boy from U.P. He was very shy and after the shootings, he would quietly sit in one corner reading something. He never joined our drink parties,nor did he participate in any other group activity. I was attracted towards him but he gave no response. He sent me an invitation card for his marriage, when it was fixed.”

He also worked in Minerva Movietone, Prakash pictures, Filmistan and other good banners. Some of his well known films were, Zambo-The ape Man-37, Meri Bhool-37, Divorce-38, Vaasanti-38, Son of Zambo-39, Main Haari-40, Jhoothi Sharm-40, Vasantsena-42, Raja Rani-42, School Master-43, Prithvi Vallabh-43, Chal chal re Naujawan-44 etc. His last recorded film was Bhagwat Mahima-55. In all, he worked in 30 films.

Navin Yagnik died on 28-10-1977.

Many films were made on Tarzan in India. Though there was a film ‘ Tarzan ki beti’ made by a Calcutta company in 1938, it was not actually a jungle film, belying its title. It took about 25-30 years to see a Hindi film of Tarzan. In the 60s there was a spate of Tarzan films. About 20+ films were made. Tarzan stories were more popular as they combined Mystery, jungles, superhuman powers and great strengths which tamed the wild animals. Countless films were made with Tarzan as the central character.

When the normal titles finished, the imaginative writers combined Tarzan with Aladdin, Delialah, Rocket, Gorilla, Mermaid, King Kong, Hercules, Cobra, Circus and even Fairyland. When this too was exhausted, they joined him with places like Delhi, spies like 303 etc. They gave Tarzan a Daughter also. When the Indianisation of Tarzan was complete, in came ZIMBO !

Whatever the title, the script ideas were more or less the same. It ensured that the Hero’s supernatural powers and strength was used and wild animals were shown in abundance.

There were also Toofani Tarzan (1937), Toofani Tarzan (1962), Tarzan Aur Gorilla (1963), Rocket Tarzan (1963),Tarzan Aur Jalpari (1964), Tarzan Captain Kishore (1964), Tarzan Comes To Delhi (1965),Tarzan And Circus (1965), Tarzan And King Kong (1965); Tarzan Aur Hercules (1966), Tarzan Ki Mehbooba (1966), Tarzan In Fairyland (1968), Tarzan 303 (1970),Tarzan Mera Saathi (1974), Tarzan (1985), Taarzan – The Wonder Car (2004).

Anyway we are talking about the film Zambo-The Ape man-1937 presently. The music was given by an extraordinarily talented artiste- Badri prasad. He was an actor, singer, Music Director, Producer, Director, Lyricist and a Choreographer in his last lap. I have yet to come across another artiste with so much talent. Additionally he was a Sanskrit pandit and wrote dramas for All India Radio also. We don’t find such people these days !

Film actor and a famous compere DAVID ABRAHAM CHEULKAR, popularly known only as David, made his Debut with this film. David Abraham Cheulkar (21-6-1909 to 2-1- 1981), popularly known as David, was a Jewish-Indian Hindi film actor and a member of Mumbai’s Marathi-speaking Bene Israel Jew community. In a career spanning four decades, he played mostly character roles, starting with the 1941 film Naya Sansar, and went on to act in over 110 films, including memorable films such as Gol Maal (1979), Baton Baton Mein (1979) and Boot Polish (1954), for which he was awarded the 1955 Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award.

He never married. He died on 2-1- 1981 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada of a heart attack at the age of 73.
Today’s song is sung by Sarla devi. It is the second song from this film here.

Today 26th September’2021 is the thirty-secondth Remembrance Anniversary of Legendary Singer and Music Director of yesteryears Hemant Kumar.

Hemant Kumar Mukhopadhyay was born on 16th June 1920 at Benaras, Benaras State under British India.

He passed away on 26th September 1989 at the age of sixty-nine.

As a fan of Hemant Kumar’s voice, I had always liked his singing and his compositions that he has given us in the Hindi Film Music. He also sang in many regional languages including my mother tongue – ‘Marathi’. Ravindra Sangeet sung by him in ‘Bengali language’ is an immortal gift he left for all music connoisseurs.

Here, I am not going to mention his long list of achievements and the various awards and felicitations he received in his career in Music.

Today, as a tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Day’ I would like to present a song from the 1966 movie – ‘Biwi Aur Makaan’. I had noted this song long back i.e., in 2013 however it still remained to be posted. Later, I tried to get it posted on anniversary of Gulzar and Hemant Kumar, but it could not succeed.

It is a ‘saawan song’ and though the ‘saawan’ month is behind us by now, we still have ‘showers’ continuing in some parts. This song will join the ‘saawan song’ club where we have more than hundred songs already posted.

I became aware of today’s song long back when I was in my ‘teens’. I think I listened to it for the first time on ‘All India Radio’ Urdu service program. After that when I started collecting music ‘cassettes’ I got this song in the ‘Vintage Favorites – Hemant Kumar’ brought by HMV in 1986. I have earlier given the details of other songs in this compilation in my post on the blog.

‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Geetanjali Pictures, Bombay’.
It had Vishwajeet, Kalpana, Mehmood, Shabnam, Ashish Kumar, Padma Devi, Bipin Gupta, Badri Prasad, Kanu Roy, Sarita Devi, Keshto Mukherjee, Ajit Chatterjee, Moni Chatterjee, Brahm Bharadwaj and many others.

This movie had ten songs written by Gulzar and composed by Hemant Kumar.

Here is the list of these nine songs of ‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’.

The movie which started its journey on 23.06.2009, already having’ a long run on the blog, seems to be taking another ‘marathon run’ to cover all of its songs on the blog 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song composed and sung by Hemant Kumar. Lyrics are by Gulzar …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No.28
——————————————————————-

After the successful release of Prabhat Film’s ‘Padosi’ (1941) on January 25. 1941, V Shantaram, the director, remained inactive for more than one year in Prabhat Films which was unusual for him. His next directorial venture was ‘Shakuntala’ (1943) under his own banner which was released sometime in the second half of 1943. Apparently, there was something unusual happening in Prabhat Films.

To know what was going on in Prabhat Films in general and with V Shantaram in particular, I browsed through the available issues of ‘Filmindia’ magazine of the yeas 1941 and 1942 wherever there were references to Prabhat Films and V Shantaram. What I gathered from the various columns of the magazine is summarized below which explanins as to why V Shantaram got sidelined in Prabhat Films:

(1) The grapevine was that all was not well among the 5 partners of Prabhat Film Company after the release of ‘Padosi’ (1941). It was speculated that some of the partners were not on the speaking terms and they rarely met to discuss the future plans. This discontentment was evident from the fact that in January 1941, there was an announcement that V Shantaram will direct Prabhat’s next film, ‘Omar Khayyam’ with Jayshree in the lead role. The screen-play and dialogue writing were completed and film was to go on shooting floor in April 1941. But no progress was made beyond screen-play and dialogue writing. Eventually, the film was shleved.

(2) Sometime in the middle of the year 1941, Prabhat Film Company had spared the services of V Shantaram to Government of India as the Chief Producer for its Film Advisory Board (later called as Film Division) at a remuneration of Rs.2500/- per month. He was the first Indian to head the Film Advisory Board of the Government of India. Although he was allowed to work for Prabhat Films whenever his services were required, Prabhat Films did not give him any assignment.

(3) Around the same time, V Shantaram married Jayshree Kamulkar who was the lead actress in Prabhat Film’s Marathi version of ‘Padosi’ (1941), titled as ‘Shejari’. Earlier, one of the partners of Prabhat Films, Keshavrao Dhaiber had married actress Nalini Tarkhud who was the heroine in Prabhat’s ‘Rajput Ramani’ (1936). For this, he was made to exit from the partnership of Prabhat Films. Since then, there was a rule in Prabhat Films that any partner marrying the actress in the payroll of the Company would have to leave the partnership. This rule would also apply to V Shantaram.

Since V Shantaram did not immediately exit from the partnership of Prabhat Films after the marriage, it is quite possible that sparing his services to the Film Advisory Board was a way out to keep V Shantaram out of Prabhat Films. This arrangement may have also suited V Shantaram as he got the time to plan for his future film ventures before he finally exited from his partnership in Prabhat Films.

V Shantaram exited from the partnership of Prabhat Films in May 1942. He continued with his new assignments with Film Advisory Board until September 1942 when he resigned his post as the Chief Producer. By this time, he had set up Silver Screen Exchange, his film distribution company for Western India and was in advance stage of setting up of his film production company. He had already announced ‘Shakuntala’ (1943) as the first film under his newly set up banner, Rajkamal Kala Mandir. He had almost finalised buying National Studio for Rs.7 lakhs and he had already made the announcement to this effect.

But unlike doing business in Kolhapur and Pune, Mumbai was highly competitive. When the news of his buying National Studio became known in the film industry, Keki Mody, the Chief of Western India Theatres put his bid for National Studio at much higher price and snatched away the deal from V Shantaram. It was a setback for V Shantaram as he had planned to start the shooting of ‘Shakuntala’ (1943) soon after the acquisition of the National Studio.

The necessity of buying a studio become a prestige issue for V Shantaram more than for the immediate requirement for the commencement of shooting for his first film. So, he immediately bought Wadia Movietone’s studio for Rs.2 lakhs – much lower price than his bid for National Studio. But it had a hidden cost – the cost of renovation and the resultant delay of about 3 months to commence the shooting of ‘Shakuntala’ (1943).

The shooting of ‘Shakuntala’ (1943) started in January 1943 and got completed in July 1943. Therafter the film was released. It ran for 104 weeks in a single theatre in Mumbai. Thus the two years of inactivity of V Shantaram in commercial cinema was rewarded with a grand success of ‘Shakuntala’ (1943).

10 years ago on this date (26 June 2011), one song from the film ‘Shakuntala’ (1943) was posted on the Blog. So far, 10 songs (out of 13) from the film have been posted on the Blog, details of which are as under

I am presenting the 11th song, ‘meri biraha ki rain thhi ek to badi’ from the film ‘Shakuntala’ (1943). The song is rendered by Amirbai Karnataki. There were two lyricists – Diwan Sharar and Ratan Piya for the film. However, for the song under discussion, individual accreditation is not available.

The song is picturised on a dancer whom I am not able to identify. The situation of the song is that as soon as King Dushyant gets to see the ring which he had presented to Shakuntala after his marriage with her, his memories of the time he spent with Shakuntala is restored. He becomes restless and is eager to see Shakuntala. This song is the reflections of what is going in the mind of King Dushyant.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Song-Mere birha ki rain thhi ik to badi (Shakuntala)(1943) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics (provided by Prakashchandra)

mere birha ki rain thhi ik to badi
dooje badhti ee gayi
aur badhti gayi
mere birha ki rain thhi ik to badi
uthhi rang(?) ki siyaahi se kaali ghataa
kaali raat ke chadhti ee
chadhti ee gayi
mere birhaa ki rain thhi ik to badi

hai biyog ki lambi kahaani meri
kabhi ant main uska likh naa saki ee
kabhi likhti rahi
kabhi padhti gayi ee
phir likh likh
likh kar
padhti gayi
mere birha ki rain thhi ik to badi

Song – Jab Kaali Kaali Raatein Hongi (Chanda Ki Chaandni) (1948) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics – DN Madhok, MD – Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

jab kaali kaali raatein hongi
jab kaali kaali raatein hongi
dil se dil ki baatein hongi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

jab kaali kaali raatein hongi
dil se dil ki baatein hongi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

jab aam ki daali dolegi
aur door koyaliya bolegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
jab kaali kaali raatein hongi
dil se dil ki baatein hongi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

jab tum hum ko yaad karoge
jab tum hum ko yaad karoge
bhoole se ek aah bharoge
bhoole se ek aah bharoge
jab jhilmil jhilmil taare honge
jab jhilmil jhilmil taare honge
chanda se shokh ishaare honge
chanda se shokh ishaare honge
jab dhak se chhati dhadkegi
aur aankh hamaari phadkegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi
aur yaad tumhaari aayegi

जब काली काली रातें होंगी
जब काली काली रातें होंगी
दिल से दिल की बातें होंगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी

जब काली काली रातें होंगी
दिल से दिल की बातें होंगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी

जब आम की डाली डोलेगी
और दूर कोयलिया बोलेगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
जब काली काली रातें होंगी
दिल से दिल की बातें होंगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी

जब तुम हम को याद करोगे
जब तुम हम को याद करोगे
भूले से इक आह भरोगे
भूले से इक आह भरोगे
जब झिलमिल झिलमिल तारे होंगे
जब झिलमिल झिलमिल तारे होंगे
चंदा से शोख इशारे होंगे
चंदा से शोख इशारे होंगे
जब धक से छाती धड़केगी
और आँख तुम्हारी फड़केगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
और याद तुम्हारी आएगी
