“Firdaus”(1953) was produced by M S Ahluwalia and directed by Vasant Joglekar for New Premier Films, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Anoop Kumar, Rama, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, Jamaal Amrohi, Badri Prasad, Randhir, Pesi Patel, and Vasant Thengadi etc in it with Ashok Kumar in guest appearance.

The movie had eight songs in it, all being female solos, sung by four singers- Rajkumari (3), Geeta Dutt(2), Asha Bhonsle (2) and Lata Mangeshkar (1). Two songs have been covered so far.

Here is the third song from “Firdaus”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rajkumar. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterjee.

Only the audio of the song is available. The song sounds like a mujra song to me, going by its lyrics. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dekhi re anaadi tori preet (Firdaus)(1953) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterjee

Lyrics

dekhi re anaadi tori preet
dekhi re anaadi tori preet
dekhi re anaadi tori preet
anaadi tori preet

jhooth mooth ki baat ko
maine jaana saanch
ab door khade muskaat ho o o
dekh begaani aanch(?)
mare hue ko marna yaa kaahe ki reet ho
kaahe ki reet
anaadi tori preet
anaadi tori preet
dekhi re anaadi tori preet

tum bin jeena maut baraabar
tum bin jina maut baraabar
aur julam bedardi na kar
aur julam bedardi na kar
hamne apni haar maan li ee ee ee ee
hamne apni haar maan li
maan li tori jeet
maani tori jeeet
dekhi re anaadi tori preet
anaadi tori preet
dekhi re
dekhi re anaadi

dekhi re anaadi tori preet

With the advent of sound films in India in 1931, many actors faced difficulties in on-screen performances with their voices. Only few actors of silent films who could, fluently or otherwise, speak Urdu and Hindi made a transition from silent to talkies. Master Vitthal, Master Nissar, Mazhar Khan, Prithviraj Kapoor, Baburao Pendharkar, Raja Sandow, Hiralal, Patience Cooper, Zubeida, Sulochana (Ruby Mayers), Gohar Mamajiwala, Madhuri (Beryl Claessen), Sabita Devi (Irin Gasper), Gulab, Jillo Bai, Lalita Pawar, Durga Khote etc were some of the actors who switched over from silent to talkies without much of difficulties. A few of them even learnt speaking Hindi and Urdu during the transition.

The makers of talkies faced another difficulty. They realised that most of the actors did not have a good voice for singing on-screen. While some actors could get away with their less than average singing ability due to their popularity with the film audience, the film-makers felt the need for new actors who could sing better and/or the trained singers who could also act. So, in early 1930s, a new category of actors who could also sing with good voices emerged in Hindi film industry. In this category, K L Saigal, Kanan Devi, Asit Baran, Ratan Bai, Uma Shashi, Pahadi Sanyal, Rajkumari Dubey, Shanta Apte, Surendra, Bibbo, Sitara Devi, Shahu Modak, Sardar Akhtar, Vatsala Kumthekar among many others emerged. Barring few exceptions, most of actor-singer (and singer-actor) lasted in the Hindi film industry as singers until system of playback singing was firmly established by early 1940s. Some of them continued to act in the films, their on-screen songs being lip synced by the playback singers.

In the early 1930s, there was one more category of singers in which film-makers were interested in taking them as singer-actor because of their popularity as Hindustani classical singers on All India Radio and in private concerts. Apart from filling up the void in singers for Hindi films, these trained singers were regarded ‘icing in the cake’ in the films for their box office success.

While most of the ‘hard-core’ Hindustani classical vocalists kept distance from the Hindi films, some of the popular singers of the semi-classical genres such as thumri, dadra and ghazal got attracted to work in Hindi films as singer-actor. Thus, the popular Hindustani semi-classical singers like Mukhtar Begum, Jahanara Kajjan, Akhtari Faizabadi (Begum Akhtar), Jaddan Bai, Indubala, Kamala Jharia among others entered the Hindi film industry during the early 1930s. Some of their large repertoire of semi-classical singing was replicated on the screen albeit in shorter forms. One can judge the importance of these songstresses for attracting the film audience when posters of a few Hindi films of early 1930s had their names in the bold letters of the same size as that of the films’ titles.

It is worthwhile to note that mostly female Hindustani semi-classical singers got associated with Hindi films as singer-actor in the early phase of sound films. Most of them were having their background as tawaifs or private concert singers. They mostly sang thumri, dadra, ghazals and other semi-classical genres. The male Hindustani classical singers felt it below their dignity to sing or record songs in these genres especially up to the beginning of early 20th century. It was only when Hindustani classical singing maestros like Ustad Abdul Karim Khan, Ustad Faiyyaz Khan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan etc started singing thumri and dadra in their concerts in early 1930s with their respective gharana style, these sub-genres of Hindustani semi-classical music attained respectability.

In this context, I recall that even in post independent period, Ustad Amir Khan who was an exponent of Khayal singing, never sang thumri, dadra and ghazals in the concerts nor did he record songs in these genres. The only exceptions he made was that he sang a Ghalib ghazal, rahiye ab aisi jagah chalkar jahaan koi na ho, composed by Pandit Amarnath Chawla, his senior-most disciple, for a documentary film ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1969). And he rendered this ghazal in Khayal style. (Ref: ‘Indore Ke Maseeha’, 2008 by Bindu Chawla). The second exception was for a Bengali film ‘Kshudito Pashan’ (1960) in which he sang a dadra under the music direction of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan.

Among the Hindustani semi-classical singers, Wahidan Bai of Agra was one of the late entrants in Hindi films. Although she was trained as Hindustani classical vocalist and was an occasional singr on All-India Radio, she did not like to pursue the career as a professional singer due to stigma attached to this profession. So, she got married to a businessman and settled as a housewife in Agra. However, the business went in doldrum and they shifted to Calcutta (Kolkata) in early 1930s to start a fresh business. Even the new business incurred losses and the couple were in dire financial condition. At this point of time, she approached A R Kardar who was her neighbour in Kolkata, for a role in the film. She got a song to sing in a small role and everyone was impressed with her voice.

Chandulal Shah, the owner of Ranjit Movietone offered Wahidan Bai to join his company as actor-singer. In Ranjit Movietone, she worked in ‘Toofaani Toli’ (1937), ‘Ban Ki Chidiya’ (1938), ‘Prithvi Putra’ (1938), ‘Professor Waman, M Sc’ (1938), ‘Rickshawala’ (1938), ‘The Secretary’ (1938) and ‘Thokar’ (1939). In all these films, she sang semi-classical genres of songs most of which became popular.

Wahidan Bai switched over to Sagar Movietone and played a lead role opposite Surendra in ‘Alibaba’ (1940), made in Hindi and Punjabi. In this film, she rendered for the first time a waltz music-based song, ham aur tum aur ye khushi with Surendra which became very popular. With the merger of Sagar Movietone with National Studios in 1940, Wahidan Bai worked in ‘Sanskaar’ (1940) as actor-singer which was her last film. Thereafter, she was mostly bed-ridden as she suffered from tuberculosis from which she did not recovered and died sometime in 1942. During her short filmy career, Wahidan Bai was associated with 11 films and rendered 26 songs.

[Note: Information on Wahidan Bai is mainly based on a chapter, ‘Jewels of Sagar’ in the Book ‘Sagar Movietone’ by Biren Kothari (2014), translated in English by Parth Pandya].

‘Thokar/The Kick’ (1939) was Wahidan Bai’s last film with Ranjit Movietone. The film was directed by A R Kardar. The star cast included M Kumar, Madhuri, Yakub, Noor Mohammed Charlie, Ishwarlal, Wahidan Bai, Wasti, Ram Marathe, Suresh, K N Singh, Dixit etc.

A short synopsis of the film’s story as given in http://www.indiancine.ma is reproduced below:

This is story about wealth not bringing happiness. The blind Mohan (Kumar) lives in a village with his ward Radha (Madhuri). He wins a fortune with a sweepstake ticket sold to him by the tramp Ramesh (Charlie), who claims his due and begins to take over Mohan’s life, making him move to the city and getting him married to Chinta (Wahidan Bai), a prostitute. When Mohan’s eyesight is restored, he finds that his wife is having an affair with Ramesh. Mohan takes revenge and eventually lands up in his old village, a poor man, but with Radha still unchanged, waiting for him.

There were 10 songs in the film – all written by P L Santoshi which were set to music by Gyan Dutt. One song from the film has been covered in the Blog. I present the second song from the film ‘kaali jo ghata chhaayi hai’ rendered by Wahidan Bai in the semi-classical singing style.

If you search in google for ‘history of post cards in India’ top of the results yields this result;

In July 1879, the Post Office of India introduced a quarter anna postcard that could be posted from one place to another within British India. This was the cheapest form of post provided to the Indian people to date and proved a huge success. … The postcard facility continues to this date in independent India.

***

Regulars on the blog are aware of how some members of this blog are fond of talking about our social institutions or our public transports and communication, like railways and post departments specifically.
Actually, it would not be wrong to say that some members like me are madly in love with the railways and postal departments in our country. And why not, both the railways and postal departments have their presence all over the country and these services also play major roles in nation building and national integration. I have a BIG nostalgia associated with both of these services.

***
I remember in my childhood days I was, (even now I am), very much fascinated with the postal services, their stationery. The overall atmosphere in a ‘post-office’ have always fascinated me.

A ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was very much popular and the most preferred one to send letters among families and friends, and others. Due to my interest in books and magazines I was frequently using it for getting various publications.

I used to order books through VPP and sometimes even if I could not buy books, I would ask for the ‘list of publications’ from various publishers. We needed to send only a ‘post card’ and in return there would be an envelope carrying printed list with printed pictures of some of the books. That would give me immense pleasure.

I was also having my library containing story books and magazines for children to read mainly during summer vacations.

The simple ‘post-card’ costing fifteen paise was used for many things like conveying important messages or urgent messages, as it was said that the post-cards were delivered faster than the ‘inland letter’ and ‘envelopes.
My Grand Father staying at Akola (i.e., 25 kms from Paras) was always using post-card to send us letters. And it was the same with most other people.

Years back I had pursued my correspondence studies through IGNOU wherein all the study materials were delivered by post and all communication was through posts only. So, one can guess how close the post services are to my heart. 😊

I do not remember anyone raising any ‘privacy violation issues’ those days for ‘post-cards’. I vividly remember that a ‘postman’ would never read your letters unless requested by those who could not read. They would make it a point to handover the letters to the ‘addressee’ and to no one else.

***

After coming back from Kenya in Dec’2019, I got to visit the post office here in Vadodara many times particularly for dispatch of my daughter’s online shop products and other communications. I noticed how the department has been now given a modernized look and we can also see attractive guidelines and information painted on the walls giving it a ‘super-market’ type look.

But I also noticed someting that has not changed over the years. It is a one iron-box used for storing ‘stamps’ (a box little big than or similar to a metal school box of those days) and the ‘sorting room’ or ‘chamber’ having wooden partition separating it from general office.

Another change that I noticed is in the price of the post card, inland letter and envelope. Now we have to pay fifty paise for a post card.

I have a vague recollection that I have seen post cards of ten paise or five paise as well ! May be when I was a child, I must have seen them some with my ‘stamp-collecting’ friends.

Slowly and gradually After the advent of mobile phones and many modes of faster communication the ‘postal modes’ has Slowly and gradually taken the back-seat.

Recently for the sake of nostalgia I bought one piece each of ‘post card’, inland letter and envelope’.


***
What we discussed above is all good one side of the ‘coin’ (or post-card I should say) including happy memories and nostalgia.

On the other side there is another side. Now people do not find time to write letters as they are ‘busy’ in life. Sometimes it can even create misunderstandings between two close friends, where lack of response from either side can strain their relations.

People close to you or even not so close to you always have expectations. And there are some people who are not at all punctual like others, to return a call or a reply to a letter and reciprocate with same zeal and enthusiasm. It may be inadvertentand not deliberatel, but not responding for whatever reason may affect our relations with others.

As an example, it is my habit even now to call each and every friend that I am in contact with, even if they do not reciprocate with the same enthusiasm (I expect somebody should also given me a call and give me a pleasant surprise ).

I have noticed that nowadays people will send you friend requests, emails, WhatsApp messages or use all kind of social networks. On the other hand they generally avoid face to face conversation or the joy of meeting a person and giving him (or her) a hug (😊). In older days people would jump at the opportunity of meeting each other (I mean jump with joy 😊).

Communicating with our near and dear ones is so cheap and affordable, still there are some who cannot find time to communicate with others.

In older days, such people would be described as ‘arey yaar wo to pandrah paise ka ek post card bhi nahin bhejta hai’ or ‘kam se kam pandrah paise ka ek card hi post kar dete Bhai’, ‘itne dinon se tumhaari koyi khabar hi nahin aayi, pandrah paise ka card bhi nahin kharid sakte the kya, aisi bhi kya kanjusi’😊 (I have still maintained to keep the conversation in sophisticated language … and not using dialects 😊)

After remonstating thus, the long lost friends would readily forgive you and give you benefit of doubt in view of the various reasons given by you for responding. And after a little good natured quarrel everything would be fine among the aggrived and the aggriever.

What about someone who is in love with you and has ‘nyochhawar’ed’ (slang?) oneself on you, she or he will definitely say what the lady in today’s song is saying …

I will not repeat it here instead let us listen to this in today’s song …

Jayshree T is performing this song from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Ahinsaa’. We can see Ranjeet and others in the picturization of this mujra song.

“Ahinsaa-1979” was directed by Chand for ‘Ashwin Arts, Bombay’. It was produced by Shiv Kumar.

Story of this movie was written by Chand and K.B. Pathak and dialogues were written by Jainendra Jain. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. It had Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Prem Nath, Ranjeet, Nirupa Roy, Alka, Kamini Kaushal, Rajendra Nath, Jayshree T., Jairaj, Trilok Kapoor, Tun Tun, Kundan, Mohan Shery, Bhagwan, Romeo, Jankidas, Birbal, Raj Kishore, Master Raju, Shiv Kumar, Keshav Rana, Rajan Haksar, Narendra Pathak, Major Anand, Ranveer Raj, Hiralal and others. Om Shivpuri, Dev Kumar, Shakti Kapoor, Shyamlee make a friendly appearance in this movie. Asrani make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had four songs. Two were written by Rajkavi Tulsi and one each by Ram Bharadwaj and Anjaan.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Anand Kumar C., and Badri Prasad (mentioned in HFGK not in the movie titles) had given their voices to the songs in this movie.
Music of this movie was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 12.06.1979.

let us enjoy this rocking(😊) mujra song dedicated to the lovely ‘post-cards’ what they were in the seventies – ‘khat, pandrah paise waalaa’. Just out of curiosity I counted and noted that the word ‘pandrah paise waalaa’ appears ‘sixteen’ times in the song…

With today’s song this movie “Ahinsaa-1979” makes its debut on the blog. (It also serves another purpose of bringing ‘movies with same title on the blog’. We already have “Ahinsaa-1947” on the blog.

I have not watched today’s movie so can’t say much about its storyline but we can get idea of the story of this movie from the following dedication in titles;

‘This movie is dedicated to all those criminals and dacoits who surrendered themselves to the law with the inspiration of Loknayak Shri. Jayaprakash Narayan’

I had come across the today’s song a few months ago when I was looking for ‘Kalyanji-Anandji’ composed songs.
On going through other songs of this movie I find only song sounding familiar to me which is ‘Yaar mera rab ho gaya’ only. I was curious to know about the other songs so I listened to them and found today’s song as an interesting 😊 song.

Let us now listen to today’s song. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Ram Bharadwaj and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-7 – (‘seven-movies collaboration’ only)
——————————————————————————————-

In this post we take a look at ‘seven movies collaboration’ between Sahir Ludhianvi and his Music Directors. Interestingly, after ‘five movies-collaboration’, we have ‘seven-movies-collaboration’, and after that it is the ‘double figure collaboration’ only for three music directors viz. S.D. Burman, Ravi and N. Datta.

Here are the details of the ‘seven-movies-collaboration’ which Sahir had with two music directors viz. Roshan and Laxmikant-Pyarelal:

(*lyricist tag for one song to be added which will make the total songs on the blog to 11)

We can see from the above table that all the movies where Roshan had composed music with Sahir Ludhianvi as lyricist have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog.

For movies where Laxmikant-Pyarelal had composed music we have three songs left from ‘Jaagriti-1977’ and one song left from ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do-1982’.

Today we are going to listen a song from the movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore. Jayshree T., and Helen make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Reena Roy. Incidentally this one also is a ‘mujra song’ (like two previous posts in this series 😊)

In today’s song Reena Roy is lip-syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice and performing on the on the song, and we can I.S. Johar, Prem Chopra, Asrani, Paintal, Satyajit, Birbal and many others are seen in the picturization of this song.

The lyrics are hard-hitting and taking a dig at the ‘corrupts’ and ‘anti-socials’ in the society, for which Sahir is well known and remembered for.

I have not been able to get correct words at many places and I would request readers to please help in adding the same.

Let us now listen to the today’s song…

Total upto 1963 730 movies 2331 2742 1921 625 143 51

It can be seen from the table of 1964 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 133 songs in movies released in 1964. As many as 122 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 46 movies of 1964 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 39 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 11 Lata songs belonging to 7 movies of 1964 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Baaghi”(1964). This stunt movie was directed by Ramdayal for Mukul Movies, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Leela Naidu,Jagdeep, Mumtaz, Jeevan, Veena, Ulhas, Helen, Naaz, Vijaya Chaudhary etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. Two songs from the movie (including one Lata Mangeshkar solo) have been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Baaghi”(1963). Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This lesser known song is a rare song and only its audio seems to be available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a mujra dance song or so. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. The song is quite a hummable song to listen to


Song-Tujhe iski khabar kya (Baaghi)(1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

wo ghar mein aaye hamaare
khuda ki kudrat hai
kabhi hum unko
kabhi apne ghar ko dekhte hain

tujhe iski khabar kya
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
main apne hosh mein kab hoon
ajab kuchh haal hai mera
chaman kya jaan sakta hai
ki veeraane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
navaajish hum pe kab hogi
jawaan toofaan kehte hain
bataaye kya ki is dil pe
sanam khaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari to adaa hogi
kisi ki jaan jaayegi
tumhaari to adaa hogi
kisi ki jaan jaayegi
pukaarega koi kitna
magar vaapas naa aayegi
sahegi rooh haal-e-dil
ki mar jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri

‘Baazooband’ (1954) was produced by Ashalata Biswas under the banner of Variety Productions jointly with Ramanand Sagar who also directed it. The star cast included Balraj Sahni and Sulochana Chatterjee in the lead with Roopmala, Anwar Hussain, Om Prakash, Radhakrishan, Shanta Kanwar, Noor Jahan (Sr.), Noreen Linford etc in the subsidiary roles. The story, screenplay and dialogues were written by Ramanand Sagar.

The main theme of the story of the film is that in a well-settled family, a distraction by way to some vices especially when ‘other woman’ comes into the life of the husband, can wreck the family – both financially and emotionally. It is the faith and the trust with which an understanding wife can steer the husband from the wrong path. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Seth Surajmal (Balraj Sahni), his wife, Radha (Sulcohana Chatterjee) and his two children are a wealthy and happy family. But Surajmal has one weakness. Come evening and he is magnetically attracted to make a visit to Amma’s kotha where he is under the magical spell of the dancer Chanda (Roopmala). He watches her dance and gift costly jewelries to her on his each visit . By mid-night, he returns home fully sozzled in alcohol. This is Surajmal’s daily routine.

The regular patrons of Chanda include Saanwariya (Om Prakash) and Bankelal (Anawar Hussain). Saanwariya, once upon a time a wealthy merchant, has now become almost pauper and spend his entire time in the kotha. Bankelal on the other hand is financially weak and looking for some way to raise money so that he and his foreign fiancé Josephine (Noreen Linford) can settled abroad. For this, Bankelal has found a way out by joining hands with Chanda to financially fleece Surajmal with a false promise to her that when she has collected sufficient money from Surajmal, he will marry her and settle abroad.

Radha’s mother and younger sister try to impression upon her to confront Chanda but she takes a stand that the fault lies with her husband who is mesmerised by Chanda. So, she has to take measure to bring her husband to the correct path. She is sure that her devotion towards her husband and the children would one day bring him back to senses. But would it not be too late for Radha?

In the meanwhile, hearing the news that her mother is unwell, Radha leaves for her mother’s place leaving the children with Surajmal. Bankelal finds a opportunity to place Chanda in Surajmal’s house in the guise of looking after his children. One day, when Surajmal is under the influence of liquor, Chanda gets him to sign a will that after his death, Chanda will be the sole owner of all his assets including the house.

Bankelal’s next move is to get Surajmal killed in such a way so as to appear as accidental fall from a hill top while under the influence of liquor though he would by pushed to death by Chanda. This plan is accidentally heard by Saanwariya. He cautions Radha and at the same time, he decides to tackle Bankelal. While both Bankelal and Saanwariya seems to be enjoying their drinks in the former’s house, Saanwariya mixes poison in the drinks as a result of which Bankelal dies.

Simultaneously, as per plan, Chanda after making Surajmal drinks a lot, takes him to a hilltop in the pretext of a romantic walk. However, Radha has been following them. When Chanda is struggling to push Surajmal from the hilltop, Saanwariya also reaches the spot and kills Chanda by stabbing. He throws her dead body from the hilltop. Radha reaches the spot and rescues Surajmal. Police arrives and arrests Saanwariya when he tells them that he had killed Bankelal by poisoning him and stabbed to death Chanda. Surajmal has now a changed man spending his evenings with his family. All is well that ends well.

The problem with the film is that the story is too familiar for the audience as they would have watched many films with such story in the 40s and early 50s. There is no harm making one more film on such a story provided the director has presented the story in a different cinematic presentation. But it is not. As I watched the film, I did not find the film gripping to an extent that I would complete the film in one sitting.

Balraj Sahni did not have much scope to show his performance as an actor as most of his scenes were with Chanda (Roopmala) in a drunken state. Sulochana Chatterjee as Radha did her best to reflect in her performance the balancing act between her husband and the children while tackling the husband’s problems. Roopmala in the role of Chanda performed very well both as a dancer as well as a vamp. Ramanand Sagar did not make the film melodramatic to draw the sympathy for the role of Radha nor he made Chanda more villainous to make the audience to hate her character. This would have been certainly a negative for the audience of that time.

Ramanand Sagar collaborated with Ashalata Biswas in three films – ‘Badi Bahoo’ (1951) as a story, screenplay and dialogue writer followed by ‘Mehmaan’ (1953) and ‘Bazooband’ (1954) – the last two also as a director and producer in partnership with Ashalata Biswas’s Variety Productions. Unfortunately, despite the good music, none of these films succeeded in the box office front. ‘Bazooband’ (1954) was the worst performer on the box office to such an extent that after this, Ashalata Biswas’s film production company, Variety Productions did not venture into the film production. Ramanand Sagar did not direct any film for the next 6 years until ‘Ghoonghat’ (1960).

On the positive side of the film, ‘Baazooband’ (1954) had 5 beautifully tuned songs from Lata Mangeshkar (out of 7 songs) under the baton of Mohammed Shafi. 3 songs from the film have been covered in the Blog.

I am presenting the 4th song, ‘aarzoo ye hai ki nikle dam tumhaare saamane’ from the film ‘Baazooband’(1954). The song rendered by Lata Mangeshkar is picturised on Roopmala who is dancing to seduce Balraj Sahni in the presence of Anwar Hussain who is the instigator for such an act. Om Prakash is a moot spectator to his dislike. The song is written by Daagh Dehlvi which is set to music by Mohammed Shafi.

It may be a rare occasion in a film in which as many as 4 songs (out of 7) have been picturisedon Roopmala who is not only the mujra dancer but also a vamp in the film. All the 4 mujra dance songs picturised on Roopmala were choreographed by Gopikrishna. Roopmala (real name, Mumtaz) was a popular dancer of Hyderabad. She started her filmy career with ‘Basera’ (1950).

In this song, everything is best – Daagh Dehlvi’s words, Lata Mangeshkar’s voice, Mohammed Shafi’s tune and musical arrangements, Roopmala’s dance performance with seductive expressions and gestures and choreography by Gopikrishna.

Blog Day :

4531 Post No. : 16093

Today, December 13th 2020 is the 34th Remembrance Day of Smita Patil who today would have been 65 years of age, perhaps donning the hat of a director.

What an incredible filmy journey Smita Patil had in a short span of about 12 years! She acted in 70 Hindi films of which 18 films were new wave films. In addition, she acted in about a dozen non-Hindi new wave films. At the age of 23, she got her first National Award for the Best Actress for her role in ‘Bhumika’ (1977). After 3 years, she was bestowed with another National Award for the Best Actress in ‘Chakra’ (1980). At the age of 29, she was one of the juries in the Montreal International Film Festival (1984). At the age of 30, She got Padma Shri Award.

She had achieved fame and glory in a short period and left her legacies for the new generations of film enthusiasts to appreciate. Other eminent actresses had taken much longer periods to achieve more or less the same status in their acting career. It is amazing to note that during her 12 years of filmy career, she worked with many eminent directors of new wave/parallel cinemas such as Shyam Benegal, Satyajit Ray (Bangla), Mrinal Sen (Bangla), G Arvindan (Malayalam), T S Nagabharana (Kannada), Jabbar Patel (Marathi), Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, Ketan Mehta (Gujarati and Hindi), Kumar Sahani, Muzaffar Ali, Saeed Mirza, Govind Nihalani etc. In the sphere of mainstream cinema, she acted under the directors such as Raj Khosla, B R Chopra, Ramesh Sippy, Mahesh Bhatt, Prakash Mehra, Mohan Kumar, J Om Prakash, J P Dutta etc.

Smita Patil (17/09/1955 – 13/12/1986) was born in Pune to a freedom fighter turned politician, Shivajirao Patil, and a social worker, Vidyatai Patil. After completion of her school in Pune, Smita Patil joined her parents in Mumbai by which time, her father had become a cabinet minister in Maharashtra. She joined St. Xavier’s College for graduation. It is during her college days she got selected as a Marathi news reader in Mumbai Doordarshan following the start of its telecast in October 1972. (I have also watched her occasionally reading Hindi news as well).

In one of his interviews, Shyam Benegal has revealed that after the successful release of his first film ‘Ankur’ (1974), he had planned for two films for which he was looking for a new girl having an earthly look (colloquially called ‘desi’ look). When he noticed Smita Patil as a Marathi newsreader on Doordarshan. he felt that she had an attractive presence and has the required photogenic face as a village girl. She fitted very well as a second lead in his next film ‘Nishaant’ (1975). Shyam Benegal met Smita’s parents through a common acquaintance. Her parents readily agreed but Smita point-blankly refused to work in films. Her mother, Vidyatai Patil who had seen ‘Ankur’ (1974), didn’t want her to refuse the offer off-hand. It took some time for her mother to convince Smita to work in the film ‘Nishaant’ (1975).

However, before ‘Nishaant’ (1975) could start, Shyam Benegal took her in ‘Charandas Chor’ (1975), a children’s film which would be a sort of familiarisation process for Smita Patil. According to Shyam Benegal, unlike Shabana Azmi, who was a FTII graduate in acting, Smita Patil had no formal training in acting. But she was a quick learner and an intuitive actor. The only problem with her was that she had multiple interests and as such during shooting, her mind would get diverted to activities other than acting. She was an ace photographer and always carried her camera during the shootings. During the break, she would take candid photographs of her co-stars. For the initial period of shooting for ‘Nishaant’ (1975), and ‘Manthan’ (1976), Shyam Benegal was not only the director but also had to behave like her school teacher for imposing the discipline.

Shyam Benegal says that despite all her sundry interest on the sets, Smita gave an excellent performance in ‘Nishaant’ (1975) as well as in ‘Manthan’ (1976). He narrated an anecdote during the shooting of the film in a village near Rajkot. A few college students had come to watch the shooting and were enquiring about the heroine. Smita Patil was sitting with four-five local women squatting against the wall. Someone from the unit pointed out in the direction of Smita Patil to the college students. They refused to believe him saying how could a heroine sit with local women? Her character in the film got so much assimilated with the local women that she could not be recognised as a heroine.

Shyam Benegal had initially considered Shabana Azmi for ‘Bhumika’ (1977). Later on, he felt that Smita’s body language and dialect seemed culturally apt for Hansa Wadkar’s character which required Smita’s visual presence from the beginning to the end. There were contradictions, complexities and also sexuality in the character of Hansa Wadkar and Smita had excellently handled all these in her role which fetched her the National Award for the Best Actress. According to Shyam Benegal, it was only after this award, Smita Patil took the acting career seriously.

After working under the direction of Shyam Bengal in ‘Kondura’ (1978) a bilingual film in Hindi and Telugu, there was a gap of 5 years during which Shyam Benegal had no occasion to take Smita Patil in his films. The reason could be that Shyam Benegal was associated with a couple of high budget films in which Smita Patil did not fit into the character.

‘Mandi’ (1983) was the last film Smita Patil worked under the direction of Shyam Benegal. In my view, this film is the best among Shyam Benegal’s films as also performance-wise the best of Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil for Shyam Benegal. Both of them have situations in the film in which they have to display different moods even in a single scene which only a few actors can perform to create a lasting impression on the audience .

With so much name and fame Smita Patil earned in acting in off-beat films, what were the reasons for her to seek the foray into mainstream commercial cinema? She did not fit into the idioms of commercial cinema. If I have inferred her personality on the basis of the articles written on her, a strong role rather than the money was her consideration to work in the films. I got some explanations for her entry into mainstream commercial cinema from a book ‘Smita Patil – A Brief Incandescence’ (2019) written by Maithili Rao. It was because of an incidence which hurt Smita Patil to such an extent that she decided to work in commercial cinema forthwith.

Sometime in 1981, one eminent successful director known for making ‘middle of the road’ films promised Smita Patil a role which she loved it. Later on, she came to know through the press that she was replaced by an actress who was also a successful star in commercial cinema. Within a few days from this incidence, Smita Patil signed two stupid films on a single day – ‘Badle Ki Aag’ (1982) and another one (probably,’Tajurba’ 1981). She wanted to prove that she was also a star material. Both these films did not fare well on the box office front.

Fortunately for Smita Patil, her next two mainstream films, Praksah Mehra’s ‘Namak Halaal’ (1982) followed by Ramesh Sippy’s ‘Shakti’ (1982), both with Amitabh Bachchan clicked at the box office which made Smita Patil a star-actor. After these successes, she did a spate of mainstream films, the notable films among them being ‘Aaj Ki Aawaaz’ (1984), ‘Ghulaami’ (1985), ‘Aakhir Kyun?’ (1985), ‘Amrit’ (1986). During this period, Smita Patil continued to work in parallel films such as ‘Ardh Satya’ (1983), ‘Tarang’ (1984), ‘Raavan’ (1984), ‘Giddh’ (1984), ‘Debshishu’ (1985) and ‘Mirch Masaala’ (1987). The end result was that in terms of numbers, her mainstream commercial films far exceeded her parallel films.

Smita Patil worked with Raj Babbar for the first time in ‘Tajurba’ (1981). It was during the shooting of ‘Bheegi Palkein’ (1982) when both of them developed a close relationship. Their closeness resulted in working together in as many as 20 films. Their affairs culminated into the marriage. Raj Babbar was already married to Nadira Babbar with two children.

Smita Patil died on December 13, 1986, 15 days after giving birth to her son Pratiek due to complications arising out of childbirth.

Shyam Benegal was back into new wave films by making a triology on Indian Muslim women with ‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubieda’ (2001). in a recent interview, he said that after Smita Patil, he has worked with many actresses but none of them came close to the versatilities of Smita Patil.

On the occasion of Smita Patil’s 34th Remembrance Day, I have selected a song from the film ‘Mandi’ (1983) which is directed by Shyam Benegal with Smita Patil in the role of Zeenat. It is a mujra song, ‘chubhti hai ye to nigodi mujhe bhaari angiya’ sung by Asha Bhosle and picturised on Smita Patil. This raunchy song is written by Insha which is set to music by Vanraj Bhatia.

The film starts with this mujra song as credit titles are rolling. One can see Naseeruddin Shah as a worker in the kotha, Shabana Azmi as Madam of the kotha and Harish Patel as police who is watching the mujra through the window. The mujra starts with the classic ‘sit-down’ pose with alluring expressions of Smita Patil. In the last part of the song, she gets up and steps into a vigorous dancing in kathak style.

According to Vanraj Bhatia, Asha Bhosle who had sung many songs for him, refused to sing this song by saying that it was a dirty song. She cancelled the recording three times. It was Ismat Chugtai who convinced her by saying that she had sung many kotha songs. Why not one more? The reason as to why Vanraj Bhatia persisted on Asha Bhosle even after she cancelled the recording three times could be that only Asha Bhosle could do justice to sing to sound like a raunchy song.

Although the name of the lyricist is mentioned as Insha, I feel that he is Syed Insha Allah Khan ‘Insha’ (1756-1817). He had used his nom de plume ‘Insha’ in some of his poems. He had also used in the song under discussion. Insha was a contemporary of Mir Taqi Mir in Mughal court. Later, he shifted to the court of Nawab of Awadh in Lucknow for getting a higher stipend. He was a multilingual poet who wrote poems in Urdu, Persian, Hindi, Punjabi, Kashmiri, Bengali, Marathi etc. I have gone through some of his ghazals and nazms. He seems to be a witty and unconventional poet. His prose work, ‘Rani Ketki Ki Kahaani’ is regarded as the first short story written in Hindi.

The video version has the full song interspersed with some dialogues, while the audio version is without dialogues and does not have the last stanza.
