Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Monihar’ (‘Jeweled Neckless’, 1966, Bangla film) was directed by Salil Sen. The main cast included Soumitra Chatterjee, Biswajeet, Sandhya Roy, Kamal Mitra, Pahadi Sanyal, Chhaya Devi etc. The film is available on a video sharing site with English sub-titles. The film belongs to the genre of the musical family drama and is about two brothers who share a cordial relationship yet there are misunderstandings regarding the financial matters as well as their likings for the same girl. Yet there is no villainous attitude towards each other. And this is the highlight of the film. This is one more among Bangla films which has got the theme of declining influence of aristocracy in Bengal during the British rule. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Ajay (Soumitra Chatterjee) and Arun (Biswajeet) are two brothers belonging to an aristocratic family who stay with their widowed mother. The family’s financial position is not good. Except for a huge palace and some business ventures which are running at losses, they have almost nothing to indulge in aristocratic life style. Ajay being the elder, looks after the family business. He is also a good trained singer under the tutelage of an Ustad (Pahadi Sanyal). Arun, the younger one has gone to Calcutta (Kolkata) for higher study to become a doctor.

The mother, before her death, had taken an assurance from Ajay the he would look after Arun in the same way as she would have looked after him. She also hands over a ‘monihar’ (jeweled necklace) to Ajay for her prospective wife whenever he gets married as this has been passed over three generation to the eldest daughter-in-law in the family.

Due to losses in business, Ajay finds it difficult to meet the expenses of Arun. He takes loans from a moneylender who eyes his palace in case he fails to repay the loan. Over a period of time, he had to sell his investments in losses and also the family jewelries to repay the loan to the moneylender. Arun is aware of the financial conditions of the family but Ajay tells him to concentrate on his studies and leave the financial matters to him.

As a part of improving his financial position, Ajay takes to teaching music with a pseudo name, Kumar and one of the students is Bandana (Sandhya Roy) whom he likes for her good singing. But before that Bandana has met Arun in a picnic and both fall in love. All the three – Ajay, Arun and Bandana are unaware of these developments. In the meanwhile, due to his popularity as a singer and the music teacher, Ajay’s financial position improves.

During one of his occasional visits, Arun comes to know that Ajay has sold family assets without consulting him. But he is not aware that Ajay has sold them mainly to take care of Arun’s education. This create some misunderstanding between the two brothers. Also, during his musical training to Bandana, Kumar ( who in reality is Ajay) had given to her monihar as a token of his blessing. When Arun see Bandana with monihar, he thinks that Ajay has sold monihar to Kumar for raising money. The monihar also creates misunderstanding between Arun and Bandana as he thinks that Bandana loves Kumar.

In the meanwhile, Ajay is sick and also to avoid further misunderstanding with his younger brother, he transfers all his assets in the name of Arun and decides to leave the house forever. However, the call of his mother for the responsibility of Arun brings him back to his house. The explanations from Ajay and also from Bandana’s parents about the monihar, clear all misunderstandings and Arun gets married to Bandana.

‘Monihar’ (1966) had 9 songs of which one song was in Hindi. The highlight of remaining 8 Bengali songs was that Lata Mangeshkar sang for Sandhya Roy, Hemant Kumar sang for both Soumitra Chatterjee and Biswajeet. One dance song was sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I am presenting the only Hindi song from the film ‘piya bin nis din roun saheli’. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this song was rendered by the great maestro Pankaj Mullick who lent his voice for Pahadi Sanyal in the film. In fact, the film starts with this song. I was under the impression that Pankaj Mullick had no occasion to sing filmy songs in Hindi after ‘Kasturi’ (1954). Probably, this song may be his last filmy song in Hindi. The song is available only on sound track and no gramophone record of the song seems to have been issued. Mp3 clip of the sound track of the song is now available on SAREGAMA for sale. The song was penned by Kaifi Azmi which was set to music by Hemant Kumar.

It is a lovely song. Pankaj Mullick sings in almost the same resonance as he used to sings in the 1940s.

This article is his 600th writeup in the blog.

Today’s song is from film Aandhi-40. The film was directed by Dinesh Ranjan Roy, music was by K.C.Dey and this song is sung by Pankaj Mallik and Radha Rani.

There is a reason why I selected this song. I wanted a song sung by Radha Rani, so that I get an opportunity to settle the issue of multiple Radha Ranis. ” Same name confusion ” is very common in the world of Hindi cinema. Luckily, the confusion existed only between 1931 and 1960. There are many many cases of same name Directors, Music Directors, Singers and Actors. Information on all names is extremely difficult to come by. Still I managed to write on 15 pairs of Same name Artistes in 3 articles and tried to clarify the confusions.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 35
————————————–
I had never heard of the film AANDHI (1940) until I came across a couple of mp3 audio clips of the songs from the film. It was more surprising for me when I came to know that the film was from the stable of New Theatres Ltd. Of course, the film was produced under the banner of Associated Productions Ltd, probably an associate or subsidiary of the New Theatres. The film was directed by Dinesh Ranjan Das, a name I heard for the first time. The star cast included Pankaj Mullick and Mollina Devi in lead roles supported by Nemo, Shreelekha, Manjari, Muzamil, K C Dey etc.

The heydays of New Theatres lasted about one and a half decades, from its foundation in 1931 to around mid 1940s. The war and the famine drastically impacted the film industry in Calcutta. Majority of the artists migrated to Bombay, and the production houses in Calcutta suffered on account of that. Given the circumstances, New Theatres was also impacted. We do not see any significantly notable films come from that banner after the mid 1940s.
