Today’s song is a Fun-Duet from the film Aage Kadam-1943.

This is a duet sung by Leela Pawar and Master Amritlal. There were many actresses who carried the name Leela. Some were famous, some were not.Leela Desai and Miss Leela (Chandragiri) formed a part of ” Same Name Confusion” pair, as both acted and sang in A grade films. Some others were, Leela Mishra (the eternal Leela Mausi), Leela Sawant, Leela Kumari and Leela Pawar. Later on came Leela Naiduand Leela Mehta also. Those who used their surnames faced no identity problem. As such Leela Sawant and Leela Pawar were actresses of B and C grade action films. Leela Mishra did roles of elderly persons and mothers from the very beginning.

However, Master Amritlal caused a lot of confusion with another same name film personality- Amritlal Naqgar. Master Amritlal was originally a stage and silent film artistes from Gujarat, who acted in 20 Talkie films. His first film was Vikram Charitra-1932 and his last film was Roop Nagar-1947 as an actor He sang 23 songs in 10 films from his film Vikram Charitra-32 uptoPagli Duniya-44.

The other Amritlal (Nagar) was a renowned author who spent his time in Hindi film industry from 1940 to1947, after which he went back to his original profession as writer. Here is what the Encyclopedia of Indian films says about him…..Amritlal Nagar ( 17-8-1916 to 23-2-1990). He was an extraordinary person. He handled almost every department of Literature-except perhaps Poetry and Autobiography. Short stories, Novels, dramas,travelogues etc etc were written by him During 1940 to 1947 period, he was in the film industry. He wrote stories, s/p, dialogues of as many as 20 films in Bombay , Kolhapur and Madras. He dubbed M.S.Subbulakshmi’s Tamil film ‘ Meerabai’ into Hindi. he also worked to translate Russian films like Zoya and Bukhara into Hindi. He won innumerable awards, including Padma Bhushan and Sahitya academy award. He was one of the very rare Hindi Literature stalwarts to work in the film industry for such a sustained period. As a Lyricist he wrote 33 songs in 4 films- Sangam-41, Kunwara Baap-42, Kisiko na kahna-42 and Raja-43.

Unfortunately, due to similarity in the first name, most people consider them as one person who acted, wrote lyrics, sang songs and wrote stories, dialogues and screen plays !

1943 was an year in which the II world war was in full swing. Both sides were almost equal. The effects of the war on India were… it faced the infamous Bengal Famine, caused by the war profiteering. Controls on film production were tightened by the Government. I.P.T.A. became operative with its first staged p0lay ‘ Nibanna’. Film Kismet became one of the biggest Hits ever. V.Shantaram’s Rajkamal Kalamandir debuted with Shakuntala, as did Mehboob with his film Najma. Government made showing of Newsreel before any film mandatory. Film Raj Nartaki’s english version The Court Dancer was exhibited in the USA, first time for an Indian film.

1943 produced 105 Hindi films, the highest number during the war years, 1939 to 1945. Many landmark and musical films appeared in this year giving a respite to the war torn audience of Indian Cinema. Let us take a look at some of these films.

Film Bhaichara had music by the only other ” Sursagar” musician – Himangshu Dutt ( the more well known being the singer Jagmohan Sursagar).

C.Ramchandra had his first musical hit with the film Bhakta Raj, made by Jayant Desai productions.

Gauri from Ranjit became Monica Desai’s first Hindi film in Bombay. It was a very successful film with songs by Khemchand Prakash, based on Bangla Folk tunes.

Kanan Devi gave some sweet songs in the film Hospital, under Kamal Dasgupta’s baton.

Bombay Talkies film Hamari Baat was the last film in which Devika Rani acted. Anil Biswas was the composer.

Music Director Khurshid Anwar brought Gauhar Sultana from Lucknow to sing some songs in the film Ishara. Naushad'[s musical film Kanoon had some good Suraiya and Shyam duets.

Film Kashinath was Nitin Bose’s last film in New Theatres, after he developed differences with B.N.Sircar.

Anil Biswas gave his career best musical Hit film ” Kismet”- the longest running film from Bombay Talkies.

Nurjehan’s musical film Nadaan was popular with songs from composer K.Datta. Director Mehboob made his first film Najma, under his own banner Mehboob productions.

Yet one more musical from Naushad- film Namaste.

At last a musical hit for composer S.N.Tripathi- Panghat from prakash Pictures. Rajkumari Shukla sang her only Hindi song in this film;. (the film was remade as Chitchor-1976).

Film Paraya Dhan had music by Bengal’s famous musician Gyan Prakash Ghosh. Deena Pathak sang her only 2 songs in this film as Deena Sanghavi.

Ghulam Haider makes merry again with Shamshad hit songs in the film Poonji from Pancholi, Lahore.

One more superhit film – Ram Rajya from Prakash Pictures had very good songs from composer Shankar Rao Vyas. Saraswati Rane gave 2 melodious songs. Yashwant joshi and Yashwant Nikam sang the famous song ” Bharat ki ek Sannari ki katha”. Ram Rajya had also a distinction as the only Hindi film that was seen by Mahatma Gandhi, on 2-6-1944.
( Before this, Gandhi had seen ” Mission to Moscow-43′ an English film, in Wardha, according to The Hindu (Kathmandu Ed.) dt.8-2-2010). The film had early songs by Manna Dey also.

Naushad in full swing with his 3rd Musical Sanjog, where Suraiya gave playback to Mehtab, the Heroine.

Vasant Desai gave excellent songs in the hit film Shakuntala by V.Shantaram.

Hospital– excellent songs by kanan Devi.

Kanoon– another hit from Naushad.

Mera Khwab– MD Ghulam Mohammed’s Debut film

Najma– Mehboob khan’s first film, on Muslim society.

Nurse– Gyan Dutt gave an excellent song of Rajkumari-‘ Vo gaye nahin’

Prithvi Vallabh– A big budget costume drama made by Minerva, based on the story of K.M.Munshi. It had songs by Minakshi Shirodkar.

Tansen– Saigal’s first film in Bombay. Khurshid matches him song by song.

Taqdeer– Nargis aka Baby Fatima debuted as an adult. However her name comes third in the credits, after Motilal and Chandramohan.

Compared to all this, the film Aage kadam-43 was nowhere in any field-story, music or Box office. The film cast included Motilal, Anjali Devi, Mubarak, Rajkumari Shukla, Padma Banerjee, Master Amritlal, Leela Pawar, Narmada Shankar etc. Heroine Anjali Devi was not the actress from the South,who entered Bollywood much later in the next decade. This was a different actress about whom I have written earlier. The director was N R Acharya.

Today’s song is a Fun Duet by Leela Pawar and Master Amritlal. The lady is urging her lover that he should stop smoking. She describes all the bad things of smoking and the Lover replies with his explanations, countering all her objections.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker. It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 301.01.1973.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’ had total five songs that were composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970). He wrote three songs for this movie and the two remaining songs were written by Indeevar.

Today 20th April’ 2022 is the fifty-second ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Shakeel Badayuni (3 August 1916 – 20 April 1970).

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’.

A per statistics on the blog Shakeel Badayuni had written lyrics for around 766 songs. Out of these 766 we have 644 songs covered on the blog.

I had not gone through these details earlier. I was under the impression that most of the songs written by Shakeel Saab had already been covered on the blog. But 122 songs pending is a big number. I wonder if all these remaining songs are available.

It would be interesting to go through the ‘filmography’ of Shakeel Badayuni to know the movies from which the songs are yet to be posted. (I hope to do it in the future as possible).

For today we have a song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle which on screen is performed by Sameer (hope I am correct) and Mumtaz. Today’s song is a ‘chhed-chhaad & nok-jhonk’ type song.

Lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

None of the songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1973’. However, two songs composed by them one from ‘Aaj Ki Taazaa Kabhar-1974’ (mujhe meri biwi se bachaao) and one from ‘Chori Chori-1974’ (waastaa hi na jab rahaa tumse) appeared in the list of ’32 next rung songs’ of 1973 Binaca Geetamala.

Let us now listen to today’s song … and pay our tributes to Shakeel Badayuni …

When one looks at the songs of Hindi movies, there are lots and lots of songs of the genre of feelings of heart” and “expression of love”. Going by the statistics of the blog, 46 % songs are “feelings of heart” and 25 % of all Hindi movie songs are “expression of love”.

An interesting and spicy version of the above mentioned genre of songs is “nok jhonk” songs or. They may be fewer in number, but they are great fun songs to listen to.

Another variation of such songs is “roothhna-manaana” aka “sulking-appeasing” song.

The blog so far has 61 “nok jhonk” songs that often take place between the lovers, who are often spouses. I had done some research in these songs and I had come to the conclusion that all the roothhna (on the past of the lady) lasts for 2 minutes and 30 seconds in a 3 minutes song, and the lady then relents in the slog overs of the match and then all is well. 🙂

Here is another “nok jhonk”cum “sulking appeasing” song. This song is from “Guru Dakshina”(1950).

“Guru Dakshina”(1950) was produced by Rajasthan Studios, Bombay. This is all the detail that is mentioned about this movie in HFGK.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

This third song from the movie is sung by Trilok Kapoor (singer) and Prempal. Prempal is a female singer unlike what the name suggests. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist according to the uploader (Mr Girdharilal Vishwakarma, a renowned collector of records). Music is composed by Pt Lachchiram.

This is an interesting song. after the roothna-manaana on the part of the lady, it is the gentleman that sulks, and then quicky gets appeased just in the nick of time as the record time is coming to an end. 🙂


Song-Baalam se munh mod maad ke (Guru Dakshina)(1950) Singers-Trilok Kapoor, Prempal, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Pt Lachchiram
Both

Lyrics

O baalam se mukh mod maad ke
prem ka naata tod taad ke
gehne kapde chhod chhaad ke
kaahe roothh chali ho gori
kaahe roothh chali
main chali shahar ke thhaane
rapat likhaane
mulzim ko saza dilaane

ho kaisa mulzim
ik Rajput ka bachccha
baat ka kachcha
jo kare mera dil chori
dikhlaaye seena jori
ab bhanwra ban ke kali kali ka
ghoome gali gali

o gori kaahe roothh chali

o o
kisne bhar diye tere kaan
kaun hai aisa beimaan
naam uska batlaao gori
yoonhi kaam na khaa
kyun batlaaun
kyun batlaaun ke nandu naai
usko batlaawe harjaai
sach kehta hai ?? baniya
tera baalam bada ??
teri aankh mein dhool daal ke
ghoome gali gali

o gori kaahe roothh chali

o rajput ki bachchi
kaan ki kachchi
?? se mera mair puraana
nandu ko mera karz chukaana
isi liye karte hain donon
baaten bhali buri
o gori kaahe roothh chali
chhod bhi do taqraar ki baaten
aao karen kuchh pyaar ki baaten
sun le chaukidaar ki baaten
aadhi aadhi raat gaye tu
ghoome gali gali

chaukidaar se mera pehra
gaaon ka numberdaar jo thhehra
chaukidaar ki dekh bhaal ko
ghoomoon gali gali
ho gori kaahe roothh chali
sach kehta hai
teri qasam main sach kehta hoon
pooch ?? jaaye
jo aur ko chaahoon
aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten

uhoon
roz roz tu kare ladaai
roz kare meri ruswaai
ab main roothh chala
tumse roothhe meri bala
sach kehti hai
teri qasam main sach kehti hoon
tujhse mil ke khush rehti hoon

aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten
aao karen phir pyaar ki baaten
chhod ke sab taqraar ki baaten

Today’s song is from the film Gul E Bakawali-1956.

Wild and fertile imagination has been a tool of entertaining mankind from ancient times. Today, old people tell tales to youngsters like they were told by their grandparents and so on. This has been going on and in the process, many creative authors chipped in their ‘ Two Cents ” to those existing stories enriching them further. Thus the child in the Adult man has always been provided fodder for his satiation for Romance and Thrill.

Arabian Nights has been one such book. Generations after generations have enjoyed the exploits of Allauddin, Alibaba and Sindbabd. Gul E Bakavali or the Magic flower of the plant Bakavali is also one of these stories. Needless to say that the filmmakers from the Silent era to the Talkie era have used this story in their films.

Gul E Bakavali-1924 was the first silent film on this story. And the first story in Talkie films was made in 1932. Let us see the History of these films….

GUL-E-BAKAVALI or the magic flower of the Bakavali Tree is supposed to do many things which are unimaginable. Gul-e-Bakawali is a popular medieval romance in many versions. The seventeenth-century poet Nawazish Khan was perhaps the first to write a Bangla version of Gule Bakawali, a story in verse about the love of Prince Taj ul mulk for the fairy Bakawali. The Sprinter catalogue records an Urdu Gule Bakawali written in verse in 1625. In 1722, Sheikh Izzatullah, a Bengali, wrote a prose version, Taj ul mulk Gule Bakawali, in persian. It is not known on which version Nawazish Khan based his poem.

There were several variant versions of Gule Bakawali, such as the poetic versions by Muhammad Mukim (1760–70), Muhammad Ali, Munsi Ebadat Ali (1840), Umacharan Mitra (1834), and Abdus Shakur, and the prose version by Bijaynath Mukhopadhyaya (1904). Kedarnath Gangopadhyaya wrote a play based on the story in 1978. Ebadat Ali’s Gule Bakawali is a dobhasi puthi.

The story was also popular in Urdu. Thus, at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Munshi Nehalchand Lahori wrote a prose version titled Mazhabe Ishq (1803), and Dayashankar Nasim wrote a masnavi (poem) called Gulzare Nasim (1835).

* Gul-e-Bakavali was the first picture with the same subject as Silent film in 1924 directed by Kanjibhai Rathod and produced by Kohinoor flms. It starred Jamna, Khalil, Fatma Begum, Noor Mohamed, Sabita Devi, Sultana, Usha Rani and Zubeida.

* The story was made as Silent film again in 1930 (Starring Vishnu, Gulab .. Dir Mohanlal Shah)

* Gul-e-Bakavali was made into Hindi films five times in 1932 ( starring Ashraf Khan, Zaibunnisa.. Dir Anand Prasad Kapoor), 1947 ( Starring Feroz Dastur, Menaka, Rabab, Sanober..Dir Rustom Modi), 1956 ( starring MG Ramachandran,Varalaxmi, Rajkumari…Dir Ramanna TR), 1963( starring Jairaj, Nishi.. Dir Jugal Kishore) and 1982( starring Feroz Khan , Amjad Khan … Dir Ravi (Kant Nagaich )..

* The story was pictured earlier in Telugu in 1938 with title Gulebakavali directed by Kallakoori Sadasivaravu and starring B. Jayamma. and again pictured as Gulebakavali Katha in 1962 (starring NT Ramarao , Jamuna, Nagaratnam .. Dir Kamalakara Kameshwara Rao)

* There are two Tamil versions, one from mid 30’s by Soundararajan (Tamilnadu Talkies fame!) and another version in 1955 , directed and produced by T. R. Ramanna and starring M. G. Ramachandran, T.R. Rajakumari and G. Varalakshmi…

The earlier Punjabi version was released in 1938 (*Baby Noorjehan , Ajmal , M Isamil … Dir Barkat Mehra) …

In Pakistan the story was pictured in 1961 (Ilyas Kashmiri, Jamila Razzaq .. Dir Munshi Dil .. MD.. Safdar Hussain ).

Today’s film was a Tamil film dubbed in Hindi. The film was made by Madras Cine Corporation and was marketed by R.R. pictures, Madras. The director was Ramanna and the MD was Gyan Datt. The cast of the film was T R Rajkumari, M G Ramchandran, Tangavalan, Raja Sulochana, G Varalakshmi, Chandrababu and others. 8 Songs of the film were written by P L Santoshi (7) and Indivar (1).

M G Ramchandran, N T Rama Rao, Gemini Ganesan, Shivaji Ganesan and many well known Southern Heroes wanted to act in Hindi films, but their problem was Language. Thus most of their Films in Hindi are dubbed films, though Gemini Ganesan made some Hindi film appearances in person. The score for others in Hindi is MGR (11 films), NTR (23 films), Gemini Ganesan (24 films), and Shivaji Ganesan (19 films). (The famous Kannada Hero Dr. Rajkumar did not work at all in any Hindi film.) Same is the case with South Heroines. Let us see about T R Rajkumari.

T.R.Rajkumari was an addition to the already present Rajkumaris in Hindi films. Thank God she did not sing, only acted, that too only in films made in South or by south producers. The other Rajkumaris were Rajkumari Dubey Banaraswali, Rajkumari Calcuttewali and Rajkumari Shukla.

Thanjavur Radhakrishnan Rajayee (May 05, 1922 – September 20, 1999), popularly known by her screen name T. R. Rajakumari, was a film actress, Carnatic singer and dancer. She has been called the first “dream girl” of Tamil cinema. Later she turned as a producer along with her brother under the banner “R. R. Pictures”. She had an active career in the period between 1936 and 1963.

Rajkumari was born on 05 May 1922 in Thanjavur, Madras Presidency, now in Tamilnadu, in a family of carnatic musicians. Both her mother and her grandmother wanted her to become a singer and trained her in Carnatic music.

Rajkumari made her film debut in Kumara Kulothungan which was produced in 1938 – 39 but was released in 1941 after Kacha Devayani. In the initial ads her name appeared as T. R. Rajayee but later in the film she was credited as T. R. Rajkumari. In 1944, Rajakumari starred in the record-breaking film Haridas alongside M. K. Thyagaraja Bhagavathar and gained recognition for her glamorous portrayal.

She acted in few Hindi movies during 1948 to 1958. Her first Hindi film was Chandralekha with Ranjan.She worked in Chandralekha-48, Jeevan Tara-51, Manohar-54, Rajkumari-55, Gul e bakavali-56 ( produced by her company) and finally in Suhag-58.

Rajakumari died on September 20, 1999 after a prolonged illness.

Then there was Raja Sulochana in this film, who did 14 Hindi films. Chittajallu Rajeevalochana (15 August 1935 – 5 March 2013), better known as Rajasulochana, was a classical dancer and actress. She has acted in more than 300 Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and Hindi language films.
She was born on 15 August 1935 in Bezawada (now Vijayawada), in Andhra Pradesh. Her father, Pilliarchetty Bhakthavatsalam Naidu worked in Indian Railways and was transferred to Madras as PA to the General Manager of M&SM Railway. At school, her name was recorded in error as Rajasulochana.
She learned Indian classical dance from Lalithamma, K. N. Dhandayuthapani Pillai, Acharyulu and Vempati Chinna Satyam, Krishnakumar, Vishnu Vysarkar, and Kalamandalam Madhavan.

The Kannada stage and screen maestro H. L. N. Simha gave her an acting opportunity in Gunasagari (Kannada, 1953), produced by Gubbi Veeranna. Subsequently, she acted in about 274 films in all South Indian languages. She acted with all the leading stars of South Indian cinema such as M. G. Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan, N. T. Rama Rao, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, Rajkumar, S. S. Rajendran, Prem Nazir, A. P. Nagarajan and M. N. Nambiar.

Rajasulochana was a special friend of the boss A.V.Meiyappan and he was trying to push her in Hindi films.It was rumoured that due to this only,a song and dance item was thrust in Chori Chori,even if it did look like a patch,having no connection to the picture story in any manner !(tum arabon ka herfer karnewale…)

Rajasulochana was a good dancer/actress and acted in some 80 odd Telugu,Kannada and Tamil movies. She acted/danced in few Hindi movies like, Aayi phirse Bahar, Alladin ka chirag, Naya aadami, Sitaron Se aage etc.

She founded the dance school “Pushpanjali Nritya Kala Kendram” in 1961 in Chennai. It has trained many students in Indian classical dance forms and celebrated its Silver Jubilee in 1986. She gave many dance performances in India and abroad and got critical acclaim for the dance dramas.

She had a son out of her first marriage and after it ended in a divorce, she married actor-director C. S. Rao and had twin daughters. One daughter lives in Chennai. The other twin daughter and son live in Chicago, Illinois.

Rajasulochana died in Chennai on 5 March 2013 at the age of 77. Condoling her death, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa said the actress had left an imprint for herself in the film industry. She was engaged in creating artistes in her dance school “Pushpanjali Nrithya Kala Kendram” here, Jayalalithaa said.

Today’s song is a duet of P.Susheela and G M Durrani.

Today’s song is from the film Sahara-1943 – an almost 80 year old one !

Whenever I rummage through the pages of HFGK issues of the 30’s to 50’s for something,I see a lot of names of actors, actresses, directors, Lyricists, singers and composers. I find that names which are prolific in the beginning became rare and then disappeared. Like waves in the sea, artistes appear and disappear from time to time. Very few artistes have a longer career of more than 25 years. Similarly, some artistes have a very short career, say of just 3 or 4 films.

One type of artistes are those who join the industry and continue to work till they can work ,in different capacities like Heroes, side heroes, character artistes and finally as extras. Actors like Master Nissar, Master Shiraz, Parshuram, Sunder, Sajjan, Bharat Bhushan etc come in this category.

Another category is of those who leave the films and go back to their earlier vocations or fulfil their other ambitions. Artistes like Moti, B.A.-Lyricist, Laxmi Shankar, S D Batish, actor Arjun Bakshi,Child actor Shashi Kapur Sr., Child actor singer Ram marathe, Firoze Dastoor etc. fall in this category.

Yet another group consists of actresses or singers who stop working after they get married, as if that was their final goal in life. Artistes like Lalita Deulkar, Smriti Biswas, Nalini Tarkhud, Sardar Akhtar, Gohar Mamajiwala, Mehtab etc can be counted in this group.

Lastly there is a group of actresses-famous and popular- who actually joined films directly as Heroines only after they were already married and what’s more this fact was not hidden. Offhand I can name few such actresses – Nirupa Roy, Meenakshi Shirodkar, Renuka Devi, Shobhana Samarth, Neena etc. come in this category.

Until about 1950 or so, many of those who joined films were not much educated. In fact we have examples like Meena Shorey who was so illiterate that she could not even sign her name in any language, forget about reading,writing or speaking English. Similarly, singer Sitara kanpuri was also totally illiterate. Therefore a highly qualified educated person joining the films was unimaginable. In such times both the Hero and Heroineof film Sahara-1943 were the most educated, polished and from highly respected families. This itself was a wonder.

Heroine Renuka Devi, in first place she was already married before joining the film line and additionally, she was M.A.in English Literature from Aligarh University. The Hero-S.D.narang – was B.Sc., M.B.B.S., Ph.D, a research scholar and an author of 2 books. All this before joining the film line. Other such examples I remember now are actress Vanmala who was B.A.,B.T. and actor Ranjan who was a Ph.D and a fellow of New York university….before joining films.

While Renuka Devi kept her film career limited to only 9 films (1937 to 1947), Dr. Narang continued in films till his last days. Renuka Devi returned to continue as a Housewife-away from films. She engaged herself in Social work, was on TV talk shows in Pakistan and also wrote her autobiography in English.

It is unbelievable that people like Dr. S D Narang ever worked in the film industry. here in his short Bio for our New readers….

Here is a story which is stunning and unbelievable ! A young man was born on 18-6-1918,at Lyallpur,Punjab. He studied hard and got high education.First he did B.Sc., then completed M.B.B.S. and became a Medical Doctor. Later he submitted a Thesis and got his Ph.D. All this from Lahore Medical College. He also wrote some research papers and 2 books. With this sparkling education, he could have had a luxurious living,but he chose to join the uncertain Film World. True to his wont,he succeeded here too and became a Hero,Producer,Director,Studio owner , a Lyricist and a writer.

Yes, in the early era of the late 30s,when educated people were a rarity,this highly qualified young man came into films. His name was SATYA DEV NARANG or simply, S.D.Narang.(18-6-1918 to 25-1-1986 ). Here are some highlights of his life,adapted from the site sdnarangsfan.com…With thanks.

1. During his life, from 1918 to 1986, he served the Indian Film Industry, at three Capitals of this industry, Lahore (1936 to 1946), Calcutta (l947 to 1951) and Bombay (1952 to 1980), as hero, producer, director, writer and Studio owner.

2. He had the distinction of being the highest educated man in the film industry. He was B.Sc., M.B.B.S and Ph. D from Lahore Medical College.

3. He had the credit of being the debut making leading man of ‘ Khazanchi’ which was The First Indian Film to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.

4. He was the youngest leading man in Lahore, who played the lead in Khazanchi, Ravi Paar, Zamindar, Patwari, Gawandhi,Thekedar, Sahara,Yeh Hai Zindagi (his first venture as producer-director) and Kamini.

5. In Calcutta he produced ‘Chittagong Armoury Raid’, which was India’s ‘First Revolutionary Film’. He also produced Nai Bhabhi, Ek Raat, Aparajitha, and Chiner Putul and also played the leading roles in these films. Apart from his own movies, he played the lead in Iran Ki Ek Raat and Kajari,which were produced by outside producers.

6. After partition, he had to leave Lahore, like a Refugee, leaving all his assets and immovable property behind him. With his hard work and experience once again he was able to establish himself as the hero, producer, director, writer and Studio owner at Delhi. But the studio proved disaster in disguise for him. Being a soft hearted person, he was giving credit to the producers, who used to shoot their films in his studio. They duped him and he had to suffer heavy losses. With this bitter experience he left the city and entered the City of Dreams and the capital of Entertainment, Bombay, in 1952.

7. Being a passionate movie maker, Dr. S. D. Narang was able to get himself settled in Bombay, within a very short span of time. He had already dedicated himself to the silver screen. Once again he arose alive from his own ashes, like a Phoenix.

8. He made his presence felt in a big way in the big City of Bombay. He produced and directed many films with big stars. In Tanhai and Darban he played the leading role himself. Some of the important films produced by him in Mumbai include, Arab Ka Saudagar, Yahudi Ki Ladki, Dilli Ka Thug, Sagai, Babul Ki Kaliyan, Do Thug, Ram Kasam, College Girl, Do Ustad, Kismatwala and Nishanebaaz. He had also produced Shehnai, which was India’s First Air-Force Film.

9. He was also the producer of Bombay Ka Chor, which was India’s First ‘Holiday-on-Ice’ movie.

10. He has also the credit of producing India’s First Under-water-movie, ‘Anmol Moti’ Jeetendra and Babita starrer.

11. The movie maker with Midas touch, Dr. S. D. Narang, had spent his 50 golden years of his cinematic profession, in the service of Silver Screen.(1936-86). He acted in 7 films and directed 14 Hindi films.

12, Before venturing into the film industry as the leading man, S. D. Narang, had an aptitude for research and while studying in Lahore Medical College, he did research on ‘Binocular Theory Of Vision’, which was published in his college Magazine. He bagged the Ph. D and became the Doctor of Philosophy, though he was already a Doctor of medicines.

13, Apart from being the author of a novel ‘Hippy Aur Yogi’ and ‘Human Psychology’, he had written a most praiseworthy book, ‘An Introduction To The Theory Of ‘Bio-Economics. It was actually a new approach to diagnosis and cure of Inflation and poverty. If applied to the present Global financial crisis, it can change the face of the fiscal fate of the World.

14. In 1960 he got married to actress of his time Smriti Biswas,with whom he had played the lead in many films. After her marriage she stopped signing new films, and decided to play the roles of faithful wife and caring mother. Still she prefers to prepare food for her beloved sons Rajiv Narang and Satyajeet Narang.

Today’s song is sung by Zeenat Begum and an unknown male singer. It seems to be a funny song. Written by lyricist Nazim Panipati ( brother of Producer,Director and Lyricist author Wali Saheb- who was the husband of actress Mumtaz Shanti), it was musically composed by Music Director Pt. Govind Ram. This rare song was given to me by my friend from the US- Abhay Jain and uploaded by our Sadanand ji Kamath. Thanks to both.

————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 06#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ (1972). I had never heard of this movie earlier. I became aware of this movie only through HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

The film is directed by K Chatterjee for I.M.K. Films, Bombay. The star cast as listed in Geet Kosh includes Suma, Dinesh Rai, Sajan, Sonal, Darpan, Shambhu Mukherjee, Kailash Sharma, Gopal Bhatnagar, Ranjana, Usha, Sarita Devi, Preetam, Prem Roop, Samajeet, Prakash, Sudhanshu, Anil, Shyam, Manik, Sadanand, Udayveer, Prem, Mirchandani, BK Mukherjee, Sudhir, Satish, Namdev, Awasthi, Krishna, Satyadeep, and others. Anupama had a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.07.1972

This movie has three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Usha Khanna. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

01 Tum Kabhi Saamne Aa Jaao To Poochhoon Tumse Pankaj Udhas
02 Tori Nathani Kaahe Haale Doley Ri Usha Khanna, Chitra Singh

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. Today’s song is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh and picturised on two actresses whom I am unable to identify, and many other artistes are seen in the picturisation of this song.
[Ed Note: The two dancers are Anupama (in orange dress) and Habiba Rehman (in blue dress). Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 61st film in this list.
[Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs.

Note: – Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now. And there is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’ and ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The video and audio versions have common ‘first stanza’ of the song but the second stanza in both the version is different.

As mentioned above I am unable to identify the artistes. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s lovely song…

तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
बात जिया की गोरी
पूछ के चोरी चोरी

पूछ के चोरी चोरी
लाज का घुंघटा क्यों खोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

बोले ये खिली खिली गालों की कलियाँ
पिया के संग तू मनाए रंगरलियाँ
मोहे सता के तोहे मिलता है क्या री
छेड़ करोगी तो मैं दे दूँगी गारी
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री
तोरी नथनी काहे हाले डोले री

डाला है डाका तू ने मेरे ही घर में
फिर भी बुरी हूँ मैं री तोरी नज़र में
मोहे सखी री काहे देती हो ताना
मोरे लिए है तोरा भैया दीवाना
मानो मानो गुइंया॰॰आं॰॰आं

कैसा है दिखने में तोरा सजनवा
पहले सखी री तोहे ननदी बनाऊँगी
पाछे में सगरे ये बतियाँ बताऊँगी

‘Nikaah'(1982) was produced and directed by B R Chopra. The movie had stars Raj Babbar, Deepak Parashar, Salma Agha, Asrani, Iftekhar etc. Originally titled ‘Talaaq Talaaq Talaaq’ led to protests from Islamic clerics so the title was changed to ‘Nikaah’ This movie was Bollywood debut for Pakistani singer-actor Salma Agha whose grandfather Rafiq Ghaznavi was a well known music director of Hindi movies during 1940s.

The movie had six songs in it. The songs of the movie were extremely popular during its time.

I am unable to identify the actress who lip syncs in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. I reqeuest our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.  Asha Bhosle’s voice is lip synced by Hina Kauser. Thanks Prakash ji for the identification.

So many benchmarks and such milestones, no one has set them better than Rafi sahab. The way he touched the lives of each and every urdu/hindi listeners heart and minds, is unmatched and unprecedented, never to be repeated in human civilization. His voice breached the boundaries of languages and cultures too. And his fans following seems to increase over the decades.

His contribution towards the cohesion and integration of the post independent and partitioned India, is unaccountable. No one can even begin to count and record, how many hearts, his voice and his renditions of patriotic songs, religious songs of different belief systems touched. It is no less than what is the contribution of Lata Mangeshkar of Sachin Tendulkar towards the Indian national identity and our ability to hold our head high in front of the world as Indians. There were visionaries, far sighted leaders that gave direction to this country and it was a recognition of Rafi sahab’s calibre and his potential as a voice, to which the nation could relate to and identify, that made Nehru invite Rafi sahab to sing the song “Bapu ki amar kahaani’ at a time of such national turmoil.

He was the voice of pathos, the hope of values, the epitome of ‘watan parasti’, a cultural mixture of a binary, where he could keep his soul pure and his singing from the heart, in a country, which needed his punjabi large heartedness. And foremost of his qualities, which still oozes out of his resonating voice, singing praises to the hero’s love interest, singing songs of devotion and story-telling, reciting ghazals of classic and modern poets, in his honied sometimes velvety and sometimes silky and yet rustic, when the situation required, is his humbleness, sharaafat and purity of intentions.

During the last one and half year many things have changed in this world. At the peak of these changes, someone thought to make a video of the deserted places of a historical / romantic city of Venice. Its streets canals boats, by-lanes and loggias totally bereft of humans, as a backdrop to Rafi Sahab’s rendition of the final stanza of this iconic song, recorded in a live show. I have seen other live show renditions of the same song, where Rafi Sahab is giving this same unbelievably fantastic performance. The clip was widely shared on whatsapp, where I first saw it. The video is available on youtube, with the title “Mahal udaas aur galiyaan sooni”.

Live show cilps are given below:
Mahal udaas aur galiyaan sooni – live singing
Full song “O duniya ke rakhwaale” live

Both the above renditions and the recording in the doordarshan show, make it clear that, this was definitely a song, which was a regular in the riyaaz list of Rafi sahab. To sing it so consistently with the same dedication and voice for 3 decades is a miracle and yet not a miracle. Also, in the stage shows he is singing this ‘raag darbari’ bhajan maintaining the higher octave through-out, and playing the harmonium at the same time. The special prolonged aria of the last stanza was not part of original film song, but it was made so especially for the live shows on stage. It was the discipline and simplicity, which makes such great artists immortal.

I am giving here a list of some of the iconic songs rendered by Rafi sahab which I find unforgettable.

103. Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yehaan zara hat ke zara bach ke yeh hai bambai meri jaan

I have missed scores of my personal favourites in the above list. For example, I have mentioned very few duets and few group songs.

The song I am presenting on this memorial day is from the 1946 film Sona Chandi. Tufail Faarooqui is the music director and Wali Sahab. This is a duet with Shamshad Begum having some conversation and the words in English “I am sorry”. This reminds me of an “once upon a time” famous quote; Angez chale gaye, yeh sorry aur thank you chhod gaye. Quite contrary to this saying, I found on my visit to UK, that the British never left it here, they gifted the etiquette’s (a legacy) to us and continued to make them their ‘takiya kalaam’.

It is true, the denizens of the old blighty are so polite that these words keep falling from their lips, what ever is the situation or occasion. They have kept quite and listened to Shashi Tharoor making those demands. I have every hope that the apology is a given. It’s taking its time, but it should be on the way. More on this topic in another post, as here we have a birthday event to celebrate.

This is short and sweet duet song with the nok-jhonk, which became more prevalent in the 60’s songs. But this is a 40’s song, making clear, the potential of a powerful voice which was to become a backbone of future playback singing.

My list of iconic Rafi songs is incomplete, so the readers and commentators can help me complete the list.


Song-Baithhe hain tere dar pe (Sona Chaandi)(1946) Singers-Rafi, Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Wali Sahab, MD-Tufail Farooqui

Woh majnu aaye hain

Arey keh do ham ghar pe nahin hain
Achchha…

Wo kehte hain

Achchha, yeh baat hai.

Hasrat ki nazar karte hain
Teri deewaar pe
Hasrat ki nazar karte hain
Khush raho ehl-e-watan
Ham to safar karte hain
Khush raho ehl-e-watan
Ham to safar karte hain

Hullo Atuldom

Chal chameli baagh mein was a post by our Nahmji to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma (one-half of the Laxmi-Pyare duo) on his 80th birthday. The song was from Shubash Ghai’s “Krodhi”. The post also gives us a brief synopsis of the movie, the cast and people associated with the music of the film.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle as playback for Shashi Kapoor and Zeenat Aman. It is a song at the wedding of Zeenat’s sister (Madhu Malhotra is the actress) and of the chhed-chhaad variety where the ‘ladkiwaale’ and ‘ladkewaale’ keep talking of the benevolence of the bride and groom towards each other. It was a song which I had in memory for a long time and Nahmji’s post last year brought it out of cold-storage (so to speak).

We remember the cute gentleman ‘Shashi Kapoor’ today on his 4th death anniversary today. He had a long run on the silver screen having begun as a child actor in the late 40s with movies like his brother, Raj Kapoor’s directorial “Aag” & “Awaara”. He had played the childhood of Ashok Kumar in ‘Sangram’ and Bharat Bhushan in ‘Dana Paani’, he was credited as Master Shashiraj in these movies. An interesting trivia that I just recollected is that he has played Ashok Kumar’s son in a few films in the ’70s and ’80s and Bharat Bhushan’s son in ‘Pyar Ka Mausam’ (there may be other such movies too).

He made a charming pair with all of his female co-stars be it Nanda, Mumtaz, Rekha, Rakhee, Hema, Parveen Babi, Sharmila Tagore, Babita and many others. He was cast opposite Indrani Mukherjee in his first adult role in ‘Dharmputra’ and his final film appearance was in the 1998 Pakistani-British epic biographical film ‘Jinnah’ where he was the narrator.

I was particularly in love with his pairing with Amitabh Bachchan, the two appeared together in 12 films starting with ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’. He had acted in about 116 films of which 61 were as solo hero and 55 were multi-starrers. At one point in his career his older brother Raj Kapoor had called him a ‘Taxi’ as he was working in many movies at the same time.

Let us also take this opportunity to wish our own Zeenie Baby on turning 70 this year. Her birthday was on 19th November. For fans of Bollywood, who were young or kids in the ’70s, it may be difficult to believe that Zeenat Aman turned 70. Zeenat- who was a style icon in her days. An actress who was not always cast as the typical Bharatiya Nari. An actress who was comfortable in whatever she wore even if it was a two-piece bikini- which was, not exactly, a preferred costume of the actresses of her period specially if they played the main lead. She had a unique style and diction for delivering her dialogues which made her the perfect choice for playing modern convent-educated characters back then. She was a decent dancer too.

Missing the super cute Balbir Raj Kapoor a.k.a. Shashi Kapoor and wishing health and happiness to Zeenat Aman.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 151 # Qawwalis – 14 #
———————————————————————

Qawwalis were common in Hindi films when I was growing up(1968-1983). As I grww watching them in the movies in my childhood, some qawwalis left lasting impression on my impressionable mind.

Qawwalis like ‘raaz ki baat kehdoon to’, ‘jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi’, ‘shirdiwaale sai baba’, ‘raat abhi baaki hai baat abhi baaki hai’, ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’, were the most heard qawwalis when I was growing.

‘Chadhhta sooraj dheere dheere dhalta hai dhal jaayega’ was a favourite of all ‘orchestras’ and one person from a Orchestra from Jalgaon used to sing it so well that always left the audience ‘spell-bound’. I remember this qawwali ever since.

All these qawwalisgrew up on me as I grew up in my life.

I have a special fascination for this genre of music. It always takes me to an entirely different ‘musical world’.

In the movies of ‘seventies’ qawwalis were a major attraction in the movies. Qawwalis like ‘ham to jhuk kar salaam karte hain’, ‘ham lootne aayen hain’, etc. were liked very much by the audience. There may be many more which I could have missed to mention here.

Jaani Babu Qawwal, Shakila Bano Bhopali and Aziz Nazan were the names I particularly remember whenever there was a discussion on qawwalis.
And as I had mentioned in my posts earlier that another name which I vaguely remembered was Shankar-Shambhu. At that age I could not understand the greatness of these peoples, and it is only after coming into the contact of this blog, that I got to read, learn, and know about these stalwarts in Qawwalis.

There was a phase when disco made an entry into HFM in mid-eighties to let us say till mid-nineties when Qawwalis took a little backseat (I think), otherwise they were always likened and had always been an integral part of HFM. In the recent years we have seen many Qawwalis in Hindi Films. The new digital age, technological advances in music instruments have enriched the presentation of Qawwalis. Movie makers have been experimenting by including ‘qawwali song’ or ‘fusion qawwali songs’ in their movies.

In Hindi movies qawwalis are woven with the story topic of the movie. So, we have ‘’romantic qawwalis’, ‘men vs women’, ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘celebrating a festival’, ‘devotional qawwalis’, ‘chor-police’, ‘marriage celebration’, ‘mujrim-munsif’, ‘scoring peanuts over each other’ (Atulogy), ‘nok-jhonk’, ‘teasing each other’, ‘musical competition’, and other types of qawwalis in our movies.

Or it may be a competition of poetry between two groups (read men and women mostly) where ‘qawwalis’ would perfectly fit into the plot of a movie.

In many movies they have been used to keep the suspense intact where actors, actresses would disguise themselves and enter the villain’s den to rescue their partners/friends caught by the villain. Or sometimes the villain will kidnap close relatives of the hero or heroine in the movie and ask for a ‘hefty’ ransom. And the hero/heroine would plan a song or disguise as a ‘musical-troupe’ to enter the ‘villain’s den’ to rescue a ‘child’, ‘relatives’ or a ‘famous scientist’ or a ‘police commissioner’ who would have been kidnaped by the villain or his associates.

To mis-lead the villain the hero/heroine or their friends and well-wishers would sing a qawwali and simultaneously free the innocent ones caught by the villain. Sometimes this would happen just before the climax of the movie.

In our movies we also have qawwalis where we see ‘lawful elements(police, CID) and the unlawful elements(goondas, or burglar, thieves)’ have a ‘qawwali muqaabla’ in “disguise”.

I am not a competent person to write or discuss about the technicalities of Qawwalis. But since I like them very much, I had undertaken this series and have presented some qawwalis from the ‘decade of seventies or 1971-to-1980’.

If we look on the statistics of the qawwalis already posted on the blog till today’s song, we get the following details (which could be of interest to music connoisseurs).

(The above details are so far compiled for the 173 qawwalis already posted on the blog. There might be some songs which might be missing in absence of the tag ‘Qawwalis’ on their post.
We will revisit the details in the future as and when possible, so till then … 😊)

In this series we have so far listened to the following qawwalis.

For now, we are concluding this series with the today’s qawwali from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Be-reham’.

This is another movie of which the dedication is to ‘All policemen known and unknown who lived for discipline and died for discipline’. That would also be sufficient for all to guess what the movie is all about.

“Be-reham-1980” was directed by R. Jhalani for ‘K.D.S. Films’.

It was produced by K.D. Shorey who also wrote the story of this movie.

Its star cast included Sanjeev Kumar, Mala Sinha, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, I.S. Johar, Kadar Khan, Urmila Bhatt, Keshto Mukherjee, Manmohan, Shetty, Raj Mehra, Rinku Jaiswal, Komila Virk, Viju Khote, Ashok Nag, Gurubachan, C.S. Dubey, Sheel Kumar, Amarjeet, R.S. Chopra, Madhup Sharma, Sudarshan Sethi, Sehgal, Uma Khosla, Vimal Chopra, and Helen in special appearance.

Moushumi Chatterjee, Kamal, Sujata and Dev Kumar make a friendly appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.08.1980.

Lyrics of the songs of this movie were written by Verma Malik and Jigar Muradabadi.
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
Here is the list of songs this movie had.

Today’s qawwali happens when the movie is already having some interesting ‘twists and turn’ in its story. I am not going to detail it more to keep intact the interest of those who would like to or have to watch this interesting movie.

I remember when the movie was released one of my classmates had watched it soon after its release and he was full praise for Sanjeev Kumar and others’ performances in this movie.

Sanjeev Kumar was common favourite of all us friends. And in our circle of juniors and seniors we often discussed about his roles, and everybody would have likened his performance in each of his movies then.
We now move to the today’s song.

It is picturised on Moushumi Chatterjee and the actor whom I am unable to identify.

We can see Keshto Mukherjee, Shatrughan Sinha and Reena Roy with many others present in the picturisation of this song.
Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Lyrics are by Verma Malik and music is composed by

Let us now enjoy today’s qawwali watching Moushumi Chatterjee’s charming performance and Keshto Mukherjee’s special antics. 😊

poochh lo tum jahaan se
Wafaa ke de ke jhaanse
Palat dete hain paase

tarannum inke jhoothhe
tabassum inke jhoothhe
takallum inke jhoothhe

dikhaawaa hai dikhaawaa

tum ban thhan ke na niklo o
to ye dil naa phisley
ik baar marammat hogi
to phir dil naa machle
ishq husn ka dushman hai ae ae
ishq husn ka dushman hai
koyi iske bharose naa rahe
ham aaj ye kissa khatm karen
ham

aaj ye kissa khatm karen
rahe
ya husn rahe ya ishq
ham aaj ye kissa khatm karen
ham
aaj ye kissa khatm karen
