Blog Day : 3490 Post No. : 14019

The film ‘Sushila’ of 1966 – and a peculiar turn of events as we tried to ‘Yippeee’ this film, earlier on 26th January. And then there is another very interesting quirk related with this post and this Yippeee action today.

After having done our due diligence and concluding that about 10 days back, we were ready to Yippeee this film, I was preparing the post for the song “Satyamev Jayate”, the then final pending song of this film. It is a nationalistic song, and I was working to publish this song on 26th Jan, and also do the honors of Yippeee-ing this film.

Just a chance examination of the folder of the songs of this film in my collection, and I was surprised to see that there is an extra song sitting in there. A little surprised, I started checking for more information. After some back and forth across the pages of Geet Kosh itself, I was able to locate the information. Actually, this song is listed in the corrigenda (appendix of corrections) of the volume IV, as an addition to the list of songs of this film. And so, we established that the film ‘Sushila’ actually has seven songs and not six. So the plans for that day were changed. A different film was Yippeee’d that day. And now, today is the turn of this film to join the band of Yippeee’d films.

As we take a look the list of songs of this film, I must say that it is a very impressive list of some very wonderful songs. Check out the list of songs posted so far.

 

Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein Sushila 2552 22-Jun-10
Bemurawwat Bewafaa Sushila 3755 9-Apr-11
Bahut Khoobsoorat Hain Aankhen Tumhaaree Sushila 5216 29-Dec-11
Nazar Nawaaz Nazaaron Mein Kho Gaya Hoon Main Sushila 5274 9-Jan-12
Gori Milna Ho Milna Re Nadiya Ke Paar Sushila 6539 29-Aug-12
Satyamev Jayate Satyamev Jayate Sushila 13978 26-Jan-18

 

Each one of the above listed songs is a wonderful gem. And so is the final addition to this list, being uploaded and posted today. This song was hitherto not available online. Well let me correct that. The song is available on YouTube, albeit as a part of the 4th Nov, 2017 edition of Bhoole Bisre Geet broadcast on AIR FM Gold, which is a special program honoring the music director C Arjun.

The song is sung by Asha Bhosle. Lyrics are from the pen of Indeewar. It is a very poignant mother-child song. It could have been a lorie, a lullaby in the film, but I cannot be sure. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information about the on screen performance of this song, and also about the film itself.

Now let me add one more very peculiar twist to this scenario. Based on information in the footnotes, it seems that the film ‘Sushila’ was possibly re-released with a different title, at a later point in time. There is a film from 1977, listed in the Geet Kosh – titled ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’. As we compare the information entries for these two films, we find that the list of songs is identical. The information about singers of individual songs, the names of the lyricists, and the name of music director, are also identical.

The other item of information that is identical is the name of the director of the films. Interestingly enough the production banner is different. ‘Sushila’ is released under the banner of Shri Vinayak Chitra of Bombay, whereas ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ is released under the banner of Shri Devo Films, Karnataka. The cast of actors, which is listed only for the latter film, reads like Kumar, Ram Kumar, Harman, Sheila, Lal Bahadur, Ranjeet Budhkar, Shivaji Jadhav, Ashu, Mahesh Raj, Prabhakar, Moolchand, Sandeep, Uma Khosla, Jeet, Dubey, Sinha, Firoza, K Raghunath, Krishan Duggal, Shobha, Dilip Dutt, Chhotu Sawant, Chandrakant, S Jairaj, Surekha Naik, Inderkumar Bhatia, Prakash Inamdar, Ramdas Padhey, Shabana, and Nayan Tara.

So now I have a poser specifically for Atul ji. As per the Geet Kosh information, it is a possibility that these two films are actually the same. Looking at the list of songs, well they are identical. And yet, being released separately under different production banners, and also being titled differently – are these two films?

So then, is it the case that we have the most peculiar and a most unique circumstance, wherein we are Yippeee’ing two films – at the same time. Wo wo. . . this is going to be a first, and probably the last such occasion where we are able to Yippeee two films that are distinctly and separately listed in the Geet Kosh. Most interesting circumstance. If yes, then this post has to be marked as a very unique post indeed.

What say Atul ji, – shall we Yippeee two films with this one post, today. 🙂

Song – Mere Aanchal Ka Diya  (Sushila) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – C Arjun

Lyrics

mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya

mere jaisa koi duniya mein hi
khushaal kahaan
oo ooo oooo
mere jaisa koi duniya mein hi
khushaal kahaan
tere jaisa hai mera laal
main kangaal kahaan
main kangaal kahaan
mere anmol rattan ae
mere badhte huye dhan
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya

tere kaajal ki lakeeron mein hai
taqdeer meri
oo ooo oooo
tere kaajal ki lakeeron mein hai
taqdeer meri
teri soorat mein nazar aati hai
tasveeer meri
haaye
tasveeer meri
mere aangan ki kali ae
mere jeevan ki lagan
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon

mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran

Blog Day : 3474 Post No. : 13952

The name Keshavrao Dhaiber may not ring any bells for most readers of the Blog. He was not as famous as V Shantaram, one of his contemporaries and a colleague in Maharashtra Film Company and later in Prabhat Film Company. I became aware of his name only during the last 2-3 years when I was deep into the film songs of 1930s and 40s. But the name did not interest me much until recently when I came across a song from his film ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938) which made me to study his filmy career.

Kolhapur born Keshavrao Dhaiber (1890-1978) who had done a short stint in the Army as Lancer, started his filmy career in Baburao Painter’s Maharashtra Film Company, Kolhapur as an actor and a technician in the early 1920s. Here, he came in contact with V Shantaram. Both of them made their debuts as directors for a silent film– Netaji Palkar (1927) which they co-directed. In 1929, due to differences with Baburao Painter, V Shantaram and Keshavrao Dhaiber left Maharashtra Film Company and formed Prabhat Film Company along with V G Damle, Fatehlal and Sitaram Kulkarni in Kolhapur. Under this banner, Keshavrao Dhaiber and V Shantaram co-directed 3 silent films – ‘Khooni Khanjar’ (1930), ‘Rani Saheeba’ (1930) and ‘Udaykaal’ (1931). He got his first film as an independent director in ‘Zuloom’ (1931), a silent film. [Source: Encyclopaedia of Indian Cinema – Ashish Rajadhyaksha].

I find from his filmography of talkie films that Keshavrao Dhaiber and V Shantaram combination worked as Cinematographer and Director, respectively for ‘Maya Machhindra’ (1932), ‘Ayodhya Ka Raja’ (1932), ‘Sinhagad’ ( Marathi,1933), ‘Sairandhri’ (1933), ‘Amritmanthan’ (1934) and ‘Chandrasena’ (1935). Dhaiber got the opportunity to independently direct his first Hindi talkie film ‘Rajput Ramani’(1936).

During the making of ‘Chandrasena (1935) and ‘Rajput Ramani’ (1936), Dhaiber got romantically involved with the films’ heroine, Nalini Tarkhad. As per the contract among the partners of Prabhat Film Company, partners were not allowed to be romantically linked with actresses who were in the payroll of the Company. Since this was a breach of contract, Dhaiber was forced to resign from the partnership of the Company. He later married Nalini Tarkhad.

It is said that the most vocal among the partners to force Dhaiber to resign from Prabhat was V Shantaram. Interestingly, in 1941, V Shantaram too got romantically linked with Jaishree Kamulkar, another actress in the payroll of Prabhat Film Company whom he married in October 1941. Soon, V Shantaram left Prabhat to form his own film company, Rajkamal Kala Mandir. While V Shantaram’s filmy career continued to flourish after he left Prabhat, same was not the case for Keshavrao Dhaiber.

After leaving Prabhat, Dhaiber formed his own film production company, Jaishree Pictures. Under this banner, he produced and directed ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938) which was made in Marathi and Hindi. He roped in A V Meiyappan (AVM) as producer and Jayantilal Thakore (probably, financier/film distributor) for the Tamil version which was also directed by Dhaiber with a Tamil speaking Assistant Director, Krishnaswami. Unfortunately, all the three versions of the film did not fare well on the box office resulting in heavy losses for him and his newly set up banner. As a result, Dhaiber had to close down his film production company.

It is interesting to note that Prabhat’s ‘Gopalakrishna’ (1938) was released just a month ahead of Dhiaber’s ‘Nand Kumar; (1938). Both had, more or less, the same mythological story. Another interesting part of these two films was that while Ram Marathe played the role of Krishna in childhood in ‘Gopalakrishna’ (1938), the same role for ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938) was played by his brother, Anant Marathe. ‘Gopalakrishna’ (1938) was the 3rd highest grosser at the box office for 1938 while ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938) failed at the box office.

After directing a couple of Marathi films in 1939, he joined Minerva Movietone and directed ‘Ulti Ganga’ (1942) and ‘Bhakta Raidas’ (1943). However, these films too failed at the box office plunging his already downward filmy career further. Dhaiber re-joined Prabhat Film Company as Production Supervisor during 1943-46. Later, he was associated with Famous Studios. His last film as a director was the Marathi film ‘Sudamache Pohe’ (1958). He also made a few documentary films for Maharashtra and Gujarat Governments. He wrote his autobiography ‘Eka Zindagichi Patkatha’ (Screen-play of a Life) which was released in 1967. Unfortunately, I could not get this book either from the publisher nor could I locate it online.

Keshavrao Dhaiber left for the heavenly abode on May 11, 1978 at a ripe age of 88.

Today, ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938) makes its debut in the Blog which was Keshavrao Dhaiber’s first Hindi film as producer-director under his own banner, Jaishree Pictures. The star cast included Durga Khote, Anant Marathe, Govindrao Tembe, Jaishree Kamulkar, Govind Kurvalikar etc. As mentioned earlier, the film was simultaneously produced in Marathi, Hindi and Tamil. While the star cast for the Marathi and Hindi versions were, more or less, the same, the Tamil version had different star cast which included T P Rajlakshmi (Yashoda), T R Mahaligam (Lord Krishna), C V V Panthulu (Nandgopan), Master Sethuraman (Krishna in childhood), T R Ramchandran etc.

The Tamil version of the film also did not do well at the box office. However, the film became the stepping stone for the debutant actors T R Mahalingam, the singer and T R Ramchandran, the comedian. Also, it was the debut film for music director S V Venkataraman. For the first time, the playback system in a Tamil film was used in this film with Lalitha Venkataraman lending her voice to the actress playing the role of Devki. [Source: The Hindu, October 12, 2007].

The song I am presenting today is from the Hindi version of ‘Nand Kumar’ (1938). Durga Khote (in the role of Yashoda) sings this unique type of the song ‘rooth gaye kyon kunwar kanhaai’. The song with prelude and interlude of conversations is not an usual lullaby but a song to assure a crying child. The song is penned by Pandit Veer and it is set to music by G P Kapoor.


Song-Roothh gaye kyun kunwar kanhaai (Nand Kumar)(1938) Singer-Durga Khote, Lyrics-Pt Veer, MD-G P Kapoor

Lyrics

[haan haan haan

mera bachha]

roothh gaye kyun kunwar kanhaai
roothh gaye kyon kunwar kanhaai
maiyya par bar bar bar jaai

rooth gaye kyon kunwar kanhaai
rooth gaye

[kyun
kyun mere laal
maara
kisen maara mere bachche ko
mera pyaara
hmm hmm hmm
mera munna
mera lalla]

ro ro ansuwan jhari lagaayi
ro ro ansuwan jhari lagaayi
baadal dekh chakoran aayi
baadal dekh chakoran aayi
kyun chanda par badali chhaayi
kyon chanda par badali chhaayi
rooth gaye kyun kunwar kanhaai
rooth gaye kyun kunwar kanhaai

The small girl in the song with this post celebrates her 52nd birthday today—unbelievable she is so young. The birthday list on our blog says she is 1965 born, also the Filmfare awards list page says she was all of 15 when in 1980 she won the Best Supporting Actress award for her depiction of a rape victim (in ‘Insaaf Ka Taraazu’). She seems to have been around forever. I just do not want to use the phrase ‘past her prime.’ Come to think of it she is younger to the Khans who are ruling the industry these days.

Today, May 8th 2016 is being celebrated as Mothers’ Day in many countries including India. Whether it is Mothers’ Day or any other day, whenever I remember my mother, I always recall the famous dialogue ‘mere paas maa hai’ written by Salim-Javed and delivered on the screen by Shashi Kapoor in the film ‘Deewar’ (1975). These four simple words say a lot about the importance of the mother. I used to wonder what gave Salim-Javed the idea to create this famous dialogue. I checked their profiles and came to know that both of them had lost their mothers in their respective childhoods. My own take is that somewhere in their sub-conscious minds, they missed their mothers and that was how this dialogue came about. In any case, this dialogue fitted well in the film. Shashi Kapoor had his mother as the only possession which he valued above materialistic possesions.
