Today’s song is from the film Devadasi-1945.

The custom of Devdasi has been in India since the 6th Century. Devdasi means- a female artiste dedicated to the worship and service of God in Temples or a Deity for life. She is said to be married to God. (sounds similar to Nuns in Christian Churches, who are also supposed to be married to God). These Devdasis learned the art of dance and music. Initially their status in the society was very high during the period from the 6th century to 13th century. Devdasis used to be quite rich too, due to large donations and gifts from the kings and the Royalties. However, later on Devdasis were used for personal purposes by the Nobles and the kings and their status became worse than prostitutes. They became poor and dependent on their patrons. They bore children too. Their daughters became traditionally Devdasis again.

The British brought the ” Devadasi protection Act” in 1934. However the Devdasis continued to be used unabated. The system continued like other social ills like Dowry system and Child marriage etc. After independence, all state governments made laws abolishing Devadasi custom, but even now – after 75 years of independence -this custom is followed in villages in some or the other form.

Unlike the other social ills, not many films were made on the plight of Devdasis. I found only 1 film -today’s film- on this subject. A film on similar subject was ” Jogan”-1950, but not on Devdasi custom. Pity that Indian filmmakers opted for several versions, in all Indian languages, to make films on Devdas, but none on Devdasis ! So much for Women’s Emancipation !

Film Devadasi-45 was made by New Maharashtra Productions. It was directed by C.S.Bose and the music was by the first blind composer-K.C.Dey. The 11 songs were written by Narottam Vyas. Except prithviraj Kapoor, majority of the cast and singers were Bangla artistes. The other cast members were Monica Desai, K C Dey, Vikram Kapoor, Suman, Kamla, Dar Kashmiri, Prasannat Kumar etc.etc.

The heroine Monica Desai (sister of actress Leela Desai) was talented and an interesting person. Her entry into Bombay’s Hindi films, courtesy Kidar Sharma, was sensational but strange enough to put the owners of Ranjit and her Mentor Kidar kapoor on the edge of anxiety !. It so happened that…..

For film Gauri-1943 Kidar Sharma insisted to Ranjit owners that the Hero’s role of Khumar- the Idol Maker be done only by his friend Prithviraj kapoor. His name was of course agreed upon. However, Goharbai queried as to who Sharma had in his mind to do the sensitive Heroine’s role. Sharma ji replied that he needed someone who looked fresh and innocent. He asked for some time. Actually he had thought of Monica Desai- the younger sister of famous actress Leela Desai. Monica worked as a school teacher in Calcutta. She had done a small role in his film ‘ Chitralekha’-41. In those days Sharma was impressed with her and had assured her that when he gets stabilised as a Director and has a suitable script, he will give Heroine’s role to Monica.

Next day, Sharma ji told Chandulal Shah about her selection. Chandulal had confidence in his judgement. The big hearted Shah gave Rs. 5000/- to Sharma to send to Monica for coming to Bombay comfortably in First Class. Kidar Sharma sent the money to her and asked her to travel only by First class to Bombay, to get down at Dadar, keep the luggage in Cloak room and freshen up in the waiting room. She was asked to wear a silk saree also. Sharma asked her if she understood all the instructions and she confirmed. She was to visit Ranjit Studios at 2.30pm, when Sharma would introduce her to Sethji.

On the afternoon of her arrival day, the Shah couple and others waited anxiously for Monica’s arrival. In the afternoon, Monica arrived at the gates of the studio looking tired and untidy, along with all her luggage. Seeing her, Chandulal became nervous, but asked Sharma ji to arrange for her stay and food etc. Chandulal Shah was not only upset with Monica’s looks but also annoyed. Still without commenting, he left the studio immediately with Goharbai. Sharma as well as Prithviraj felt humiliated with the foolish Monica who came to the studio, not following Sharma’s instructions. This she did to save some money, but put everyone in an awkward situation. Anyway, Sharma made her staying etc arrangements.

Next day, Chandulal called him to his office and said that he will continue making film Gauri, as promised, but he will not participate in any shootings, recordings or other matters till the film is completed. He will, however, see the finished movie before it goes to Censors. It was too obvious that both the Shahs were upset about the ordinary looking and childish, immature Monica as Heroine.

Kidar Sharma gulped all this quietly and started work on the film quickly. The team went to Calcutta also and came back. When the film was completed, Sharma invited Chandulal and Goharbai to see it. Actually whenever such a preview was done all other Directors of Ranjit also attended it, but this time there were only the two of them-Chandulal and Goharbai. The entire team of the film was also present. Sharma had known that when Chandulal did not like the film, he usually abused loudly and sometimes even threw his chappals at the screen. With bated breath, Sharma showed him the film Gauri and waited for his reactions, expecting fireworks. Instead, Chandulal and Goharbai left the room and went to their office. Everyone,including Sharma was sure that Sharma has to leave the company now.

With great courage, Sharma went to their office to know their opinions. To his great surprise, Chandulal dug into his pocket and removed whatever money was there and gifted it to Sharma. He said,” this is my gift to you for making a sublime movie.” Gohar too appreciated it heartily. Both of them were spellbound with Monica’s performance. Shah offered Monica a 3 year contract, furnished house and a new car with a driver etc. Shah also increased Sharma’s salary to Rs.5500/pm.

Thus Monica Desai’s first film was a great success. ” GAURI” was a winner. Kidar Sharma was the winner.

One film old Heroine Monica Desai- was called from Calcutta by Kidar Sharma. He knew her well earlier,from Calcutta.
Monica Desai was a famous Indian actress during the 1930’s and 40’s. She was the daughter of Dr. Umedram Lalbhai Desai and Satyabhama Devi, a well-known musician of the early 20th Century. Her father was a Gujarati, and her mother hailed from Bihar. Her father who was a reputed Doctor of that period died in the year 1930.

Monica Desai first worked for Bangla movie ‘Nimai Sanyasi’ which was released in the year 1940. She was an actress who represented the era of upcoming character actresses like Leela Mishra, Ram Dulari, who made debut along with her and later ruled the Indian screen.

Monica Desai acted under the direction of Phani Majumdar and Kidar Nath Sharma. She did not concentrate much on acting as she got married to Phani Majumdar, a pioneering Indian film director, who worked in Hindi cinema. Phani Majumdar is known for Meena Kumari’s classic films ‘Aarti’ (1962) and ‘Oonche Log’ (1965). Monica Desai had a sister named Leela Desai, who was a renowned actress in Hindi and Bengali cinema. Leela Desai has even acted in the film ‘Kapal Kundala’ (1939) directed by Phani Majumdar. After completion of the venture, Phani Majumdar married Monica Desai.

Monica acted with Prithviraj Kapoor in her career, in the film Gauri. ‘Gauri’ was an Indian Bollywood film that was the seventh highest grossing Indian film of 1943 and this established Monica Desai as an actress. Later, she featured in a film ‘Devdasi’ as a heroine that was also among the top seven grossing films at the Indian box office in 1945. She appeared in the film ‘Chitralekha’ which was the second-highest grossing Indian film of 1941, in this movie, she portrayed the character of Yashodhara.

This film also was a debut film for actor Bharat Bhushan, who later achieved fame with ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952). Monica Desai had also acted with a legendary actor and singer K. L Saigal.

Monica worked in only 9 Hindi films- Qaidi-40, Chitralekha-41, Bhakta Surdas-42, Gauri-43, Bhanwara-44, Lakharani-45, Devdasi-45, Rangeen Zamana-48 and Vikram Shashikala-49.

One name Dar Kashmiri appears in the cast. He was the eldest brother of actor Jeevan (Narad roles and later on comic villain roles). When Jeevan came to Bombay he was called O.K.Dar. Since some confusion arose between these names, here is the explanation to clarify. Om Prakash Dar was born into a large family, he had 23 siblings. His grandfather was the Governor of Gilgit in Gilgit-Baltistan. He lost his father when the youngest- Jeevan- was 3 years old and his mother died at childbirth. Being the eldest,he came to Bombay in search of jobs and entered films. Instead of his original long name,he was called Dar Kashmiri.

Actually, When Jeevan came to Bombay in search of film roles, Om Prakash Dar aka Dar kashmiri, his elder brother, was already working in films. Jeevan appeared for the first time in Fashionable India-35. Since his name was Onkar nath, he was billed as O.K.Dar (and not Dar kashmiri-please note).
His elder brother Dar Kashmiri worked in some films like –

Noor Mahal-34, Watan parast-34, yaad rahe-40, Abla-41, Saugandh-42, Angoori-43, Naya Tarana-43, Devdasi-45, Room No.9-46, Hua savera-48, Kundan-55 and Ayodhyapati-56. and many other films. Every film, he was billed as Dar Kashmiri only.

Jeevan was billed as O.K.Dar (Jeevan) from film Romantic India-36 onwards and then on as Jeevan only-except still a few films where he was billed as O.K.Dar(Jeevan).

In the film Patit pawan-1955, both brothers acted and they were individually billed as Jeewan and Dar Kashmiri. This settles their name issue completely.

Here is the second song from the film Devadasi-45, sung by Parul Ghosh.

Lyrics

Hullo Atuldom

“Trimoorti” (1974) was produced and directed by Rajendra Bhatia. It had a cast of Parveen Babi, Kanchan Mattoo, Arpana Choudhary, Sanjay Khan, Rakesh Roshan, Asrani, Achala Sachdev, A.K. Hangal, Arvind Trivedi, Gulshan Bawra, Krishnakant, and I.S.Johar, Parveen Paul, Keshto Mukherjee, Sarita Joshi etc. Its music director was Rahul Dev Burman and Gulshan Bawra was the lyricist.

The blog has this song which was posted in 2017 on Parveen Babi’s anniversary.
I was reminded of this movie when I saw one of its song on some channel. The song had Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan uniformly dressed. That made me wonder “what is happening!!!” as actors normally like to standout or look unique etc. I also saw a few other songs and in most of these the heroes are uniformly dressed. I haven’t seen the movie but I presume there must be an element of comedy in it if the song with this post is an indication. It has Asrani, Sanjay and Rakesh Roshan pampering their mother in the voices of Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar and Bhupinder.

4th January is the remembrance date of Panchamda, a.k.a. Rahul Dev Burman. 3rd January was the 81st birthday of Sanjay Khan and 1st january was the 82nd birthday of Govardhan Asrani known popularly as Asrani. This post wishes Sanjay Khan and Asrani (belated) wishes health and happiness on their birthdays and thank RDB for giving us years of happiness with his music.


Song-Achhi achhi pyaari pyaari bholi bhaali maa (Trimurti)(1974) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Nitin Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Bhupinder Singh, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-R D Burman

When I saw this song on You Tube, a few days ago, I was very happy. This was one of the most popular Lories in those days – and naturally so, because it was composed by the melody King Chitragupt and was sung by the melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar. In one of her interviews to Film fare, she had said ” I like to sing songs of Chitragupt ji and I particularly liked the lori ‘ Chanda loriyan sunaaye’ from film Naya Sansar-1959.”

I was pleasantly surprised to know that this famous Lori was yet to be posted on our Blog. Surely, it fits into the song category of “How I forgot to post this song earlier”. I believe, this song was waiting for me only !

Lories have been a part of many films, where a family life is the main plank of the film story. The earliest famous Lori was the one sung by K L Saigal – “So ja Raajkumari so jaa”, from film Zindagi-1940. Earlier to that also there were many- as many as 15- Lories in the films right from film Radhe Shyam aka Zulm E Kans-1932, in which Devki (Phool kumari) sings a Lori for her child (Shri krishna), asking him not to cry loudly, lest Kans will come and kill him. -” so ja tu mere lal chu ke se, voh Paapi aa jaye”. Then there was ” Dheere dheere aa re Badal” sung by Amirbai and Arunkumar in film Kismet-1943. Many more Lories subsequently became popular, but today’s Lori was more popular and famous.

Film Naya Sansar was produced by Darshan Malhotra for his own banner Shri krishna Films. It was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. This was a rare occasion when Nanabhai Bhatt directed a Social film. Normally he was equated with B and C grade action and Mythological films only.

Director Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-6-1915 to 24-4-1999). He was a director in many films.He directed mostly Mythological and stunt films only. Nanabhai was born as Yashwant ( pet name – Batuk) at Porbandar. Since he was the younger one he was called Nanabhai ( opposite to Motabhai-elder brother). This name continued till the end. His father was a doctor. After matriculation, he went to Mumbai in 1934, where his elder brother Balwant Bhatt was working. Balwant started with Imperial,shifted to Sagar and now was with Prakash pictures of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. He got Nanabhai a job as Sound Recordist.Soon he graduated as Production Executive.He also wrote several screenplays.

In 1942 he directed “Muqabala”, for Homi Wadia, as Batuk Bhatt. Homi Wadia became his good friend. When Homi established his own Basant Pictures, Nanabhai joined him and directed his “Hunterwali ki Beti”-43, with Nadia again. He also did mauj, Jee Haan, Chaalis Karod etc. He directed about 50 films of various genres like Stunts, Mythologicals,crime, social, costume etc.

Nanabhai’s first wife was Hemlata. He also married Shirin banu, his Heroine of few films. To circumvent the Bigamy law, he married her in a Temple and that too in the presence of Hemlata ! He had 3 children from Hemlata and 6 from Shirin. Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt are from Shirin. His children and grandchildren married in different religions.Thus his big family was an example of Secularism ! In addition to 9 children Nanabhai also produced 20 films under his own Deepak Pics and Gautam Chitra !

FILMOGRAPHY OF NANABHAI BHATT: 1942: Muqabala; 1943:Hunterwali Ki Beti; Mauj; 1945: Chalis Karod; 1946: Maa Baap Ki Laaj; 1947: Meerabai; 1949: Shaukeen; Veer Ghatotkach; Sudhaar; 1950: Hamara Ghar; Janmashthami; Veer Babruwahan; 1951: Lakshmi Narayan; Daman; Lav Kush; Ram Janma; 1952: Apni Izzat; Baghdad; Sinbad the Sailor; 1954: Toote Khilone; Watan; 1956: Kismet; 1957: Mr X; Ustad; 1958: Chaalbaaz; Son of Sinbad; 1959: Bazigar; Daaka; Kangan; Madam XYZ; Naya Sansar; 1960: Lal Qila; Police Detective; Zimbo Comes to Town; 1961: Teen Ustad; 1962: Baghdad Ki Raatein; Rocket Girl; 1963: Alapiranthavan; Bhootnath; Cobra Girl; 1964: Samson; 1965: Adhi Raat Ke Baad; Bekhabar; 1966: Shankar Khan; 1967: Arabian Nights; 1968: Jung Aur Aman; 1974: Jeevan Rekha; 1975: Balak Aur Jaanwar; 1976: Dharti Mata; 1981: Gajara Maru; 1982: Jaya Parvati Vrat.( Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji and Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema for some information.).

The music was by Chitragupt and the film cast was Jayashree Gadkar, pradeep kumar, nanda dhumal, Tuntun, Sundar, Shammi, majnu and dancers Sheila Vaz, Sai Subbulakshmi and Kamla Laxman. The heroine Jayashree Gadkar was a very popular and busy actress in marathi cinema. I was surprised to learn that she had acted in 73 hindi films. Despite this number, she was not famous in Hindi films because she got only B and C grade action and Mythological films in Hindi.

Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s.

Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heriones in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema.

Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan).

Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

Let us now enjoy the sweet lori from this film.

Hullo Atuldom

Nicknamed Magnificent Mary, she is the only Indian female boxer to have qualified for the 2012 Summer Olympics, competing in the flyweight (51 kg) category and winning a bronze medal.

She had also been ranked as the world’s No. 1 female light-flyweight by the International Boxing Association (amateur) (AIBA). She became the first Indian female boxer to win a gold medal in the Asian Games in 2014 at Incheon, South Korea and is the first Indian female boxer to win gold at the 2018 Commonwealth Games. She is also the only boxer to become Asian Amateur Boxing Champion for a record six times. She was awarded the Padma Vibhushan, India’s second highest civilian award, in 2020. She is also a recipient of the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award in 2009 and Arjuna award in 2003.

Born as the eldest child, in Manipur, to parents who were tenant farmers, Mary Kom had her schooling at various schools of the Churachandpur district of Manipur. She was participated in all kinds of athletic events specially javelin throw and 400 metres running. She was among the youngsters who were inspired by Dingko Singh, 1998 Bangkok Asian Games Gold medal winner in Boxing and a fellow Manipuri. She switched from athletics to Boxing but kept it a secret from her father who was an ex-wrestler. The family got to know of her involvement in Boxing when her photo appeared in a newspaper when she won the state championship in 2000. Mary Kom is married to footballer Karung Onkholer (Onler) and has three sons including twins. She resumed her training and went back to her winning ways after the birth of her first two children.
(All the above information I have extracted from Wikipedia)

There was a biographical film on her life in 2014 where Priyanka Chopra enacted the role of Mary Kom. The movie had many lesser known actors playing her husband, coach, family etc. Only Shishir Sharma, who played the National Level coach, was the other known face. Even the music composers- Shashi Suman and Shivamm Pathak- were new along with the lyricists Sandip Ssingh and Prashant Ingole. The movie was directed by Omung Kumar and produced jointly by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom18 Motion Pictures. The movie was decent and showed incidents in a cinematic way. So I would suggest that anyone who sees the movie should not complain that details shown is not as it happened in Mary Kom’s life.

How did I land on this movie? Well I was thinking up a post on Priyanka Chopra for her birthday as she turns a year older on 18th July. I was going through her filmography and found that she had sung a few songs in her career which began in 2002 in a Tamil film and 2003 in the Sunny Deol- Preity Zinta starrer ‘Hero: Love Story of a Spy’.

She was Miss World 2000. She has done a whole of gamut of characters including a negative shaded Sonia Kapoor in ‘Aitraaz’ in 2004 for which she got a lot of critical acclaim and nominations/ awards as Best supporting actress and Best performance in a Negative Role. Priyanka has also won the National award for her performance in ‘Fashion’ (2008). If I may add she also managed to find a footing on American Television in the series ‘Quantico’ in 2015.

The song with today’s post is the one she has sung in her own voice. I haven’t seen ‘Mary Kom’ completely so I don’t know if the video accompanying the song is how it happens in the movie or whether the video uploaded on YouTube is a cleverly stitched affair.

Happy Birthday Piggy Chops (a nickname she got during the shoot of BluffMaster! in 2005)

Hullo Atuldom

The last time I had written a post for Mother’s Day was in 2016 – Mere chehre mein chhupa hai meri maa ka chehra . In that post I had mentioned how the idea of mother’s day came about. This day has been celebrated in the USA since 1914 as per a proclamation by Woodrow Wilson declaring the second Sunday of May as Mother’s Day.

As far as Indians are concerned everyday is Mother’s Day. Only thing is in the last few decades, with the increase in number of youngsters staying away from their families for studies or work or whatever reason, Mother’s Day is another day that we have started aping the west. We find youngsters definitely calling their mothers to wish, and some even send her some gifts.

There are numerous messages that will flood the social media on Mother’s Day. But a Mother will normally wait only for her children’s messages i.e. if it is not possible for the children to be physically present with her. Then there will be some somber message that will say “learn to appreciate your mother, for some are not as blessed as you”. And still others will say “what does she ask for, only a smile or a message that you are fine”. In all these years of being active on social media, I have not come across any message whose wordings have remained in my memory. But what I have stated above is the general gist of messages that will be in our INBOX on this Sunday, it being the second Sunday of May 2021.

And we must salute the mothers of the modern era. The amount of juggling that they need to do so that the schedule of the family is not upset. And most mothers also are earning members of the family. Till atleast a generation before us, these women who were working to earn, so as to supplement the family income, were seen preparing all meals for the family before they themselves left for their work. And on returning home head straight to the kitchen to make dinner and also engage the children with their studies and attend to whatever other responsibilities that she was meant to do. Being a mother had become a though job, and any lady who was not an expert at that kind of juggling was looked down upon.

In my student days, I used to commute by the Mumbai local trains and I have seen ladies shelling PEAS, cleaning coriander etc in the train. There were (don’t know if this is still happening in the trains) enterprising hawkers who used to sell vegetables and fruits, procured from the markets on the local trains of Mumbai. And to be honest, it must have been helpful to the lady travelers as it may have saved them shopping time.

I also know of mothers who have given up on well paying jobs so that they can devote all their attention to the family and children. These ladies doubled up as private tutors so that they didn’t waste their free time and could still contribute monetarily to the family.

And let me not miss talking about a generation of mothers, who are currently in their 80s and beyond. These ladies may not have been as fortunate, as say even the current 50/60 – year old mothers, in terms of getting beyond class 10 in education. But these ladies too, have reared a generation of individuals and instilled values of humanity, taught their children the importance of education and being good citizens – gender no bar. My mother would not have felt proud of her children’s achievements if my grandmother had not encouraged her to study and complete her graduation in spite of being married and a mother to 4 growing up children.

If my mother had been there she would have wished my grandmother just as me and my siblings would have fussed over our mother and my children pamper me on mother’s day. This is the day I also thank the mother in my mother-in-law for being my go-to person whenever I am in trouble, upset or celebrating. I simply love to be around her and learn how she has lived 74 years of her life as a mother.

Mothers have a special place in Indian stories and as an extension of these stories in Indian cinema too. We have movies titled “Maa” (three in our blog itself), “Maa Beta”, “Maai Baap”, “Maa aur Mamta”, “Maa Baap” (two movies with this title in our blog) etc.

In addition we have the classic “Mother India” where the lady had a powerful place in the life of her family members. Saw this movie, recently, with a conscious mind. I was amazed at the strength of the character that Nargis played. This lady could plough her field along side her husband and sons. She wielded a lathi when her son went out-of-line and her teachings; as also on the mean-money minded- lala (moneylender) when he misbehaved with her. This mother-character was a lady made of steel and didn’t tolerate when her son went on to abduct a bride of the village and didn’t hesitate to shoot him in spite of him being her son.
I have seen and read interviews of actresses of the next generation and they all used to say that they want at least one role in there life like the one Nargis played in “Mother India” and realized only now the full meaning of the wish of all these later year actresses.

But that is another story, let us get to today’s song. It is from the 1970 release “Mastaana”. This movie was directed by A. Subba Rao, produced by Premji, had seven songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed by Laxmi-Pyare. It had a cast headed by Mehmood- Padmini- Bharati- Vinod Khanna and had Shyama, Rehman, Mukri, Leela Mishra, Manorama, Jayshree T., Ramesh Deo, wonder- child (that is how it was in the movie’s titles) Bobby etc. It was an emotional movie showing the bond between a poor-honest man Satya (Mehmood) and Naintara (Baby Bobby) a child of rich parents who misses having her parents when she needs them the most. The movie is a must-see for all Mehmood fans as he was too good in the emotional scenes. This is one of the movies (the other being ‘Lakhon Mein Ek’) where he makes his audience shed a tear or two in addition to making us laugh.

This song is sung by the child Naintara as a stage song at her school’s Parents Day. The parents don’t have time to attend the programme and depute the child’s nanny (Manorama). The child, on her part, takes Satya along for the program and Satya on his part sits in the aisle. The playback for this song is by Lata Mangeshkar.
Salutation and Best wishes to all mothers. Awaiting Father’s Day (in about a month).

Editor’s note-With this song, Anand Bakshi silently completes 1100 songs in the blog as a lyricist. Only the third lyricist (after Rajinder Krishan and Majrooh Sultanpuri) to touch this mark in the blog.


Song-Maine maa ko dekha hai (Mastaana)(1970) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

maine maa ko dekha hai,
dekha hai maa ko dekha hai
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine phool toh dekhe hain,
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai ae ae
waise toh ghar mein maa ki tasveer hai
lekin meri kab aisi taqdeer hai
kabhi jo ghabraaoon,
gale se lag jaaoon
agar naa neend aaye
toh lori woh gaaye
mera mann jiska pyaasa hai
pyaasa hai jiska pyaasa hai
woh laad dulaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin ee ee
waise meri maa ka dil toh sakht nahin
par uske paas zara bhi waqt nahin
hai uska naam bada
hai usko kaam bada
woh devi mamta ki,
hai leader janta ki
maa ke photo ke bina,
bina ji photo ke bina
koi akhbaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai

pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai ae ae
pyaari pyaari hai woh bholi aisi hai
kal aaya se poochha baby kaisi hai
meri maa sachchi hai,
badi hi achchi hai
yeh uska dosh nahin
use kuchh hosh nahin
maa ne duniya dekhi hai,
dekhi hai duniya dekhi hai
ghar sansaar nahin dekha
maine maa ko dekha hai,
maa ka pyaar nahin dekha
maine phool toh dekhe hain
dekhe hain phool toh dekhe hain
phoolon ka haar nahin dekha,
maine maa ko dekha hai

Hullo Atuldom

“Ek Hi Raasta” (1956) was a movie that was produced and directed by B.R.Chopra with story-screenplay- dialogue written by Pt. Mukhram Sharma. Its songs were penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Hemant Kumar who had Ravi as assistant and Yash Chopra was assistant to B R Chopra.

This is a movie which I saw only recently. It is popular as a movie on widow remarriage. But it dealt with a lot more.

It showed the young lady’s problems after her remarriage. It showed that the lady had a problem getting her son to accept the new man in her life as his father in spite of the new father being his own father’s boss and friend as also the little one’s. The movie tried to find the mental challenges a little boy faces when he is not told the whole truth regarding his father’s death. There are more complexities when the lady gives birth to a baby from her second marriage. The little boy leaves his foster father’s home with his infant brother in search of his father and mother. There are some tense moments (I was on the edge of my seat) before the movie comes to a close.

Daisy Irani (credited as Raja alias Roop Kumar in the movie’s titles) was simply brilliant. And who better to play the young mother than Meena Kumari.
Meena Kumari may have been typecast as a tragedy queen but there have been movies where she has shown her comic timing as in “Azaad”; “Mem Sahib”; “Miss Mary” etc. This movie too had comic moments between Sunil Dutt, Daisy Irani and Meena Kumari. There are also scenes that show her dancing capabilities.
This movie had eight songs and the blog has five of them. Two of the songs are in the same video on YouTube maybe because they follow each other in the movie with a very small dialogue in between.

Song Date of posting
Chali gori pee ke milan ko chali 31 January 2009
Saaanwle salone aaye din bahaar ke 21 April 2009
Bade bhaiyya laaye hain London se chhori 11 April 2012
Chamka ban kar aman ka taara 15 august 2012
Bekas ki aabroo ko neelaam kar ke chhoda 27 November 2012

The above are the songs from “Ek Hi Raasta” that are on the blog. The last post was in November of 2012. Don’t know how the movie has missed being YYIIPPEEEED. This post hopes to take it one step closer.

Meena Kumari was barely 38 when she bid goodbye to this world in 1972. Unbelievable that it is 49 years ago. Paying tribute to this uniquely beautiful lady who had a sweet voice too.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, the first part of the song being in Hemant Kumar’s voice. It shows the young mother trying to forget her pain and put her son to sleep and how both of them are missing the father.

Song-So jaa nanhe mere tu to so jaa(Ek Hi Raasta)(1956) Singers-Hemant Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

bhola bachpan
dukhi jawaani
lambi sooni raahon mein
nikle dard liye manzil ka

kaun kahe raahi ko
kitni door kahaan tak jaana hai
jeewan ki sunsaan dagar mein
kab tak thokar khaana hai

so jaa nanhe mere

jaagne ko pade hai
abhi din tere

so jaa nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja

laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
laut kar phir na aayenge
bachpan ke din
kho ja sapnon mein
tu mere aansoo na gin
tera nanha sa dil
mera gham kyun kare
tu toh so ja
so ja nanhe mere
tu toh so ja
tu toh so o o ja aa

mera saathi chhoota
meri kismat luti
mera saathi chhoota

aansuon ki toh ab hai meri zindagi
jaagna meri taqdeer hai baaware
tu toh so ja

Here is another Lata Mangeshkar song from “Aansoo Aur Muskaan”(1970). Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised on a child artist. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. My guess from the starcast is that she is Bobby.

Lyrics

o maa aa aaa

chidiya chugaaye bachcho ko daane

paalee naa jaaye, sambhaalee naa jaaye, tujhse jo santaan teri ee

khelegi kab tak aankh michauli
mann mera dhoondh ke haara
tara koi bhi aaj gagan se toota nahin
sahaara kisika aaj kisi se chhoota nahin
phir kyun maa toot gaya mamta ka naata pyaara aa
taara koi bhi aaj gagan se toota nahin
o maa aa aa aa
o maa aa aa
o maa aa

Blog Day :

Today, August 18th 2020 is 86th Birth Day of the poet, lyricist, story, screen-play and dialogue writer, producer and director, Gulzar. His presence in Hindi film industries is an assurance that lovers of Hindi films and Hindi film songs would continue to get the opportunity to watch and listen to the meaningful films and songs. I regard Gulzar Saab as an extension of what Sahir Ludhianvi left in October 1980 – a legacy of poetry in Hindi film songs.

I have already covered a substantive information about the filmy career of Gulzar saab in my articles ae hairat-e-aashiqui jagaa mat on the occasion of his 85th birth day last year and in shaam se aankh mein nami si hai, abut 5 years back. Also, there is no dearth of information on Gulzar Saab on the internet, in the print media and his website. So, I would skip this part.

What a great journey Gulzar saab has with Hindi film industry which began in early 1960s as a lyricist. He became an assistant to Bimal Roy and eventually became a director with ‘Mere Apne’ (1971). During his almost six decades in Hindi film industry, he wrote nearly 700 songs, wrote screen-play/dialogues for nearly 50 films and directed 19 films. In addition, he wrote and directed a few TV serials like ‘Mirza Ghalib’(1988), ‘Noopur’ (1990), ‘Potli Baba Ki’ (1991), ‘Tehreer Munshi Premchand Ki’ (2004) etc. He published many novels, short stories and collections of his poems. Of late, Gulzar saab has been busy with translating in Hindi, poems in regional languages from all over India for their wider dessimination.

On the occasion of 86th birth day of Gulzar Saab, I have chosen a song of a rare combination – Gulzar-Suman Kalyanpur-Shankar-Jaikishan. The song is ‘ek thhi nindiya do thhe naina’ from the film ‘Seema’ (1971). Probably, Gulzar saab got involved in writing the lyrics of a couple of songs in this film as he was the story-screen-play-dialogue writer for the film. Surendra Mohan made his debut as a director in this film. The film was produced by Sohanlal Kanwar. The story of the film is summarised below:

Seema (Simi Garewal) has lost her parents in her childhood and she has been brought up by her caring uncle (Abhi Bhattacharya). In her grown-up years, Seema develops a superstition that whoever loved her would get the same fate as her parents. She spends her time mostly alone except with a friend, Rajni (Kanchan) who tries to erase her superstition by saying that she is still alive despite Seema loving her but of no avail.

Seema’s life gets a change when she come across a charming Sunil (Kabir Bedi). But her superstition will not allow her to reciprocate his love. He convinces her to overcome her fear and they get married in a temple. Unfortunately, after few days, Sunil dies in an accident and the fear of superstition returns to Seema as she is pregnant with his child in the womb. She gives birth to Banke (Rakesh Roshan) in secrecy as the society does not know of her marriage to Sunil. The child is brought up by her maid (Chand Usmani) who is kept away from Seema’s home out of fear of losing her child. However, Seema keeps the tab over her son’s activities from a distance.

Banke grows up cosying with Chamki (Bharathi) and also trying to discover as to who his parents are. After a lot of poignant moments in the film, it is Rajni who eventually reveals to Banke that Seema is his mother and his father had died of accident. Seema embraces Banke thus giving up her superstitions.

The song under discussion is a lori which have been picturised in the film on two occasions. First, Suman Kalyanpur sings for Simi on piano. The second, Sushma Shreshta sings for the boy which is taken over by Suman Kalyanpur singing for Chand Usmani as a continuation of the lori. In the audio clip, the entire lori is sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

‘Seema’ (1971) was Jaikishan’s last film. He died while the film was in the making.
