Today’s song is from film ‘Samaaj ko badal dalo’-47- a relatively unknown film. The song is a chorus song, sung by Rafi, Arunkumar Mukherjee and Manna Dey. HFGK does not mention the names of singers, but I got these names from the Rafi songs Excel sheet, corroborated by Muvyz.com and Wikipedia also. The song is composed by Khemchand Prakash. The film is produced by Prakash Pictures of the Bhatt brothers, who had become famous due to their epic films on Mythology like Bharat milap and Ramrajya etc.

In 1947, Prakash Pictures probably made this quicky film during the turmoil of Partition in the country. Under that situation, making a Mythological film, which required elaborate sets, costumes and cast, was risky. The film was directed by Vijay Bhatt and the music was by Khemchand Prakash.

Khemchand Prakash and Prithwiraj Kapoor were good friends. When Kapoor left New Theatres, Calcutta and came down to Bombay, Khemchand also followed him like K.N.Singh and some others. Khemchand was then employed by Ranjit Movietone from 1940 to 1945, in place of Gyan Dutt who was in Ranjit from 1937 to 1940 ( 15 films). Khemchand gave music to 20 films in 5 years period. When he left Ranjit, his friend Bulo C. Rani joined in his place. However, by that time Ranjit was already going downhill due to financial difficulties caused by the gambling of Sardar Chandulal Shah.

The cast of film Samaj ko badal dalo-47 was Arun Ahuja, Mridula,Yakub,Umakant, Leela Pawar, Bikram Kapoor etc etc.The inclusion of Mridula in the film has a story behind it.

Mridula started her career with prestigious Bombay Talkies. Her first film as a Heroine was opposite Dilip Kumar- Jwar Bhata-44. She was under contract with Bombay Talkies for 5 years.

Right from 1931 onward the studio system was very common and Actors, Directors and Composers were hired under contract, on monthly pay rolls by the studios. There was a competition among major studios as to who has got more famous stars on their rolls. Studios also had regional inclinations. For example,Prabhat studios had maximum Marathi artistes, Prakash,Sagar and Imperial had mostly Gujaratis, whereas new Theatres in Calcutta and Bombay Talkies in Bombay promoted Bangla artistes. Studios like Pancholi in Lahore or Minerva or Ranjit in Bombay had a cosmopolitan mix. Ranjit had the biggest fleet of more than 300 people on their payrolls at one time ! They even advertised ” There are more stars in Ranjit than there are in the sky” !!!

In general contracts with artistes went off smoothly, but at times, due to the stubbornness of the owners, the careers of some artistes were almost destroyed or were stuck for a long time plunging them into bleak prospects for their future. Notable cases of such sufferers were that of Meena Shorey of Minerva movietone, Shanta Apte, Manju and Chandramohan with Prabhat films/V.Shantaram, Uma Devi with Kardar studios, Sitara Kanpuri with Shalimar films etc.

Among these, the worst case was that of Meena Shorey.

Khursheed jehan (later Meena Shorey) was a find of Sohrab Modi. She was illiterate. He signed a contract with her, telling her that it was for one year and that she can not work anywhere else in this period. Uneducated Meena signed blindly. She worked in 2 films and then the films stopped. She lost many outside offers-like Mehboob Khan for film Humayun-45 etc, because of her contract. After one year, when she was called to Lahore by Pancholi and was offered 2 films there, she received a legal notice from Sohrab Mody for breach of contract. She went to Bombay to inquire. To her dismay, she found that taking advantage of her illiteracy, Modi had made the contract for 3 years and NOT one year. When she pleaded, he asked for 60000 rupees. Finally she was released when Modi’s wife Mehtab intervened and settled the matter for 30000 rupees.

Chandramohan became a drunkard when V Shantaram did not release him and kept him without work. He died penniless in 1949. Sitara Kanpuri was also cheated by W Z Ahmed of Shalimar films. Kardar destroyed the singing career of Uma Devi because she went to Madras to sing for Chandralekha-48 while under contract but without work for one year.

Similarly Mridula was also a victim of her contract with Bombay Talkies. It destroyed her career as a Heroine for ever. Devika Rani was her Mentor in Bombay Talkies. However, after Himanshu Rai’s death, no one was listening to her in the company due to groupism. Disgusted, Devika rani left Bombay Talkies,having sold all the shares. Mridula got stuck in the company without work, due to her 5 year contract. It was Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures who somehow convinced Bombay Talkies to loan her to him and she got roles in 2 of their films. In film ‘Bhakta Dhruva”-47, she played mother to 16 year old Shashi kapoor (sr) when she herself was about 23 year old only ! But she had no choice. The film and her role became famous, but she lost her chances of becoming Heroine in any film thereafter for ever.

Mridula ( real name Chandrakanta) was born on 2-11-1924 at Almora, but was educated in Delhi. When she was in college doing her graduation, Amiya Chakravarty of Bombay Talkies came to Delhi on a Talent Hunt. He contacted her and gave her an offer. She signed a 5 year contract with Bombay Talkies and Devika Rani became her Mentor, teaching her everything. She was paid 2500 rupees salary with a furnished house. Her first film was “Jwar Bhata”-44, opposite another Debutant Dilip Kumar (Yousuf Khan). After Himanshu Rai’s death, Bombay Talkies was already in disarray. Many people had left the company due to differences with Devika Rai. A group of them formed Filmistan.

She got married to her lover Mr. G C Andley. However the marriage was unsuccessful and she went back to Delhi. She spent a miserable life selling whatever she had to survive. She got divorce and came back to Bombay to work in films, in 1954. She worked in 53 films in all. Her last released film was Saboot-80, though she had married again and retired some time before that.

Presently ( till 30-9-2016) she was living in worli, Mumbai all alone. Her only daughter stayed nearby and looks after her.

Film Samaj ko badal dalo-47 was a sort of social reform film, highlighting the ills of mismatch marriages. The story of the film,in short is like this..

Kishore (Arun) and Manorama (Mridula) are in love with each others but unable to get married. Mridula’s father is a clerk, who can’t afford to pay the dowry demanded by Arun’s family. Jayant (Yakub) is a widower, and Mridula is married off to him. His cruel behaviour becomes apparent when he starts torturing Mridula soon after their marriage. Arun’s parents get him married to the rich Champa (Leela Pawar) who is in love with someone else. Arun helps her get married to Naresh, the man she loves, by giving her a divorce. Arun watches the torture inflicted on Mridula and the story then continues through tense scenes where eventually Arun kills Jayant and unwittingly Mridula too, following which he’s sent to a mental asylum having been declared insane.

Today’s song is a special song, because in this song Rafi himself had appeared on screen singing his lines. Rafi sang on silver screen on few films like, Shahjehan-46, Jugnu-47 and Samaj ko badal dalo-47. The song is sung by Rafi, Arun kumar Mukherjee and Manna Dey. It seems to be sung by some college students.

‘Pagle’ (1950) was directed by Pratima Dasgupta for Mercury Productions, Bombay. The movie had Begum Para, Madhuri, Jagirdar, Pratima Devi, Mubarak, David, Kukku, Agha Jaan, Sherry etc in it.

This obscure movie had nine song in it that were pened by three lyricists viz. Anjum Rehmani, Behzaad Lucknavi and Kaabil Amritsari.

Five songs from “Pagle”(1950) have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This rare song is credited as sung by Begam Para. But the voice clearly is that of Rajkumari. Going by the earlier songs of this movie, we notice that HFGK mentions the name of the actors as singers, whereas the singers are different.

Lyricist is not known. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar (credited as V G Bhatkar in this movie).

Only the audio of this song is available but seeing that HFGK mentions Begam Para as the “singer”, it is clear that this song was picturised on Begam Para.

I have not been able to get a few words correct in the lyrics/ I request our readers with keere ears to fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable in the lyrics.

Today (28 september 2016) is the 87th birth anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar. This blog is 2994 days old today and we have discussed 3072 songs sung by her, so it means that we have discuss more than one Lata song everyday in this blog on an average throughout the eight years plus that this blog has been in existence. In other words, we remember her everyday and celebrate her almost daily by discussing “new” Lata songs everyday.

On this occasion, here is a song of Lata from her early days. This song is from “Anmol Ratan”(1950) which was directed by M Sadiq for Jaimini Dewan Productions, Bombay. This social movie had Meena, Karan Dewan, Gope, Gulab, Madn Puri, Nirmala etc in it.

This song, the eighth out of eleven from the movie, is sung by Lata and chorus. I feel that this song has another female voice too in the song. However, HFGK entry describes this song as sung by Lata and chorus, so I will go by that.

This nice “feelings of the heart” song is penned by D N Madhok. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

I am not fully satisfied with the lyrics noted down and I feel that a few words need correction. I request our readers with keener eras to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics whereever applicable.

I take this opportunity to wish Lata Mangeshkar a very happy birth anniversary and we wish her many more happy returns of the day.

September 28th is the date which the connoisseurs of Hindi film music would definitely remember for being the birthday of Lata Mangeshkar, one of the greatest singers born in the 20th century. We are fortunate that she is in the midst of us hale and hearty and continues to sing songs for Hindi films. As per http://www.myswar.com, the last song she recorded was ‘jeena kya hai jaana maine’ for the film ‘Dunno Y2 Life Is A Moment’ (2015). With a singing carrier of over 7 decades with a vast treasure of her songs as well as numerous articles and books on her life, Lata Mangeshkar does not need introduction. In fact, her introduction in a nutshell is ‘meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai’ (My voice is the identity).

I was not sure whether I would attempt any write-up on Lata Mangeshkar’s 87th birthday for the Blog. As it is, even in normal circumstances ( meaning uploading of 4-5 songs per day on the Blog), Lata Mangeshkar would surely find place in the Blog almost every day. What prompted me to write this piece at the last moment was my coming across one of her rare songs only a couple of days back while searching for Balakram’s songs in Hindi films. I felt very nostalgic when I heard the song. For the moment, I forgot that a part of this song was also rendered by Balakram.

On the occasion of the 87th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar, I am presenting one of her rare songs of the late 40s ‘jhoolo jhoolo pyaar hindole’ which she sang with Balakram in the film ‘Hamaari Kahaani’ (1940s). What I liked about the song is that Lata Mangeshkar sang this composition of a semi-classical tune with ease. Note how Lata Mangeshkar sings ‘Jhoo……lo’ with ornamentation.

The music director of the song under discussion is Hemant Kedar who is none other than Ramkrishna Shinde as confirmed by his wife during an interview conducted by Shishir Krishna Sharma. As per the interview, Ramkrishna Shinde took the name ‘Hemant Kedar’ as Hemant and Kedar were two of his favourite raagas. Before joining the film industry, both Ramkrishna Shinde and Lata Mangeshkar were performing together in some musical events at fairs and exhibitions to make ends meet.

I was keen to know at which year, the song under discussion may have been recorded. Ramkrishna Shinde’s first Hindi film as a music director was ‘Manager’ (1947) and he was also one of the two music directors for the film ‘Bihari’ (1948) in which he composed “Sabze Ki Durfishaani Phoolon Ka Shaamiyaana” sung by Lata Mangeshkar. I find some similarity in style of rendering by Lata Mangeshkar of the song from ‘Bihari’ (1948) and the song under discussion. This leads me to believe that the song under discussion may have been recorded sometime between1947-48. My hunch is that the song may have been recorded closer to 1948.

Enjoy the song which, I am sure, would make all of us nostalgic.

There are two beautiful songs rendered by G M Durrani in ‘Nayi Kahaani’ (1943). Fortunately, video clips of both the songs are available. In the first of the two songs, neend hamaari khwaab tumhaare kitne meethhe kitne pyaare a boy suddenly gets up from the group of musicians and start singing sargam in a ‘rapid fire’ mode and then sits down for the song to continue. He sings sargam in his own voice. Again, in hamen kya ab khizaan jaaye na jaaye , the boy gets up during the musical interlude of the song and starts conducting the orchestra. These are the ‘scene stealer’ situations in the songs which, I am sure, must have remained in the minds of the audience when they came out of the theatre after watching the film. The boy was actor-singer Balakram.

Balakram Jadhav (24/02/1931 – 02/03/1974) was born in Nagpur where his father Gangaram Bapu Jadhav was an active member of a musical drama company. Gangaram had four children – Vijaymala, Manjula (Manju Diwan), Trayambak and Balakram who was the youngest . The family shifted to Pune when the father got a job in Prabhat Films. Balakram started his filmy career as a child artist in ‘Majha Mulga’ (in Marathi) and its Hindi version, ‘Mera Ladka (1941)’. In the same year, he acted in Prabhat’s bilingual ‘Aadmi’ (1941). In both these films, he sang songs for himself.

During this period, Balakram was also learning the nuances of Hinsustani classical music from Pandit Gunidas and Pandit Jagannath Prohit of Agra Gharana. A glimpse of his proficiency in Hindustani classical music can be seen when he sings a fast sargam in the midst of a song in Prabhat’s ‘Nayi Kahaani’ (1943) referred to above. In Prabhat’s ‘Chaand’ (1944), Balakram acted in the film in which he had two songs picturised on him. But he did not sing the song on himself. Instead, his elder sister Manju gave playback for him. Probably, Balakram was on a threshold of his adolescence and his voice pitch may have changed which may not have suited his child’s role.

After a hiatus of about 3 years, Balakram returned to Hindi films with a role in ‘Krishna Sudama(1947) probably donning the role of Sudama. Whether it is coincidence or otherwise, the films in which acted thereafter were mostly belonging the genre of mythology/Devotional like ‘Seeta Swayambar’ (1948), ‘Satyanarayan’ (1948), ‘Sati Ahilya’ (1949), ‘Sant Janabai’ (1949), ‘Subhadra Haran’ (1964), ‘Shri Ram Bharat Milan’ (1965) etc.

Balakram once again had a long break in Hindi film career between 1949 and 1964. During this period, he acted and sang in many Marathi films and was associated with some Marathi plays where he got fame. He also participated in classical vocal concerts and gave training in classical music. At Dadar, he established Pandit Gunidas Sangeet Vidyalaya and started teaching music to children.

Balakram died of liver complications on 02/03/1974.

KRISHNA SUDAMA (1947) was Balakram’s first mythological film after which he got associated with this genre of Hindi films. The film was produced under the banner of National Artists and was directed by C R Bajaj. The star cast included Karan Diwan, Balakram, Vijay, Dulari, Gulab, Kusum etc. By the way, Balakram was brother-in-law of Karan Diwan as his sister Manju had married Karan Diwan in 1944. The film had 11 songs, all written by Kamalnayan which were set to music by Shyambabu Pathak. This was the film in which Shyambabu Pathak gave initial pbreaks as playback singers to Sulochana Kadam and Krishna Goyal.

I am presenting the first song ‘mann prem ki gaathon mein baandh liyo’ from the film to appear in the Blog. Although online websites like http://www.myswar.com has not identified the singer, mp3 clip of the song from which I made the video clip and uploaded the same on YT, has accredited Balakram as singer. I have checked a song sung by Balakram in the film ‘Hamaari Kahaani’ (1948, unreleased) and I am fairly sure that the voice in the song under discussion matches with that of Balakram. As mentioned earlier, Balakram also acted in the film. None the less, I would request the knowledgeable readers of the Blog to share their views on the singer of the song.

[Note: Some of the inputs for the profile of Balakram came from Shishir Krishna Sharma’s Blog beetehuedin.blogspot.com].

“Chal Chal Re Naujawaan”(1944) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Filmistan Limited, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Naseem Bano, Jagdish Sethi, V H Desai, Motibai, Rafiq, Navin Yagnik etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it. Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Chal Chal Re Naujawaan”(1944) to appear in the blog. According to HFGK, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam, though I have my own doubts because the voice sounds different. I request our knowledgeable readers to offer their views on the identity of the singer.

Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Ghulam Haider is the music director. I have come across the pure Hindi word “Samwaad” (talk) instead of the more common “baat”/ “batiyaa” for the first time in a Hindi movie song.🙂

Only the audio of this song is available. It is clear that the song is a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-So jaa so jaa meri laadli (Chal Chal Re Naujawaan)(1944) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

so ja
so ja
so ja meri laadli
so ja
so ja meri laadli
so ja
soya gagan mein chaand hai
so ja
soya gagan mein chaand hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

so rahe chupchaap taare
gagan ganga ke kinaare
so rahe chupchaap taare
gagan ganga ke kinaare
har disha ki khidkiyon se
neend karti hai ishaare
neend karti hai ishaare
aaj sapnon se tera sanwaad hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

kaun kehta hai
kaun kehta door ki mehmaan tu
mujhko preetam se mili vardaan tu
tu hai to duniya meri aabaad hai
tu nahin to zindagi barbaad hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

Today, while we add one more movie of ‘1951’ on the blog, we also add one more movie under the category of ‘movies having same title’.

I was not aware that there was a movie titled ‘Saudaagar’ made in 1951. And would never have been able to know it if HFGK was not there.

We are aware of ‘Saudaagar’ made in 1973 and 1991 and both the movies have good songs and music. Both these movies have already made their entries on the blog.

Today’s movie ‘Saudaagar-1951’ was passed by Censor Board on 11.07.1951. It was directed by M.I.Dharmsey and produced by S.V.Moongre for West Hind Pictures, Bombay. It had Rehana, Naseer Khan, Suraiyya Choudhary, Bhudo Advani, Shakuntala, Ratan Kumar, Balam and K.N.Singh.
As per HFGK (Vol.III) this movie had total ten songs where lyricist P.L.Santoshi, Hasrat Jaipuri, and Hanuman Prasad penned six, two and two songs respectively.

Two music directors have been credited for composing the music for this movie viz. C.Ramchandra – six songs and Hanuman Prasad – two songs.

Asha Bhonsle, Chitalkar, G.M.Durrani, Lata Mangeshkar, Pt.Lakshman Prasad and Rajkumari have given their voices to the songs of this movie.

For today’s post I am presenting the songs written and composed by Hanuman Prasad ji and sung by Rajkumari ji.
With this song ‘Saudaagar-1951’ makes a debut on the blog, and joins the ‘Trader’s trio’🙂 i.e. e ‘Saudaagars of -1951-1973-1991’so far🙂 …

Let us now enjoy this lovely song …

I have not been able to get correct words at few places where I have left ( ? ) mark and would request readers with keener ears to please provide the correct words there please.


Song-Ye pyaar bada beimaan hai (Saudaagar)(1951) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-Hanuman Prasad, MD-Hanuman Prasad

Lyrics

Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai
Hansna iska aaghaaz hai
Rona iska anjaam hai
Hansna iska aaghaaz hai
Rona iska anjaam hai

Jab chaand sitaare sote hain
Jab chaand sitaare sote hain
Do nain hamaare rote hain
Do nain hamaare rote hain
Har ashq ye mujhse kehta hai
Apne ko chhupaa ?? hai
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai

Ye pyaar ki manzil mushqil hai
Ye pyaar ki manzil mushqil hai
Seene mein naazuk sa dil hai ae
Ye kathin hai sauda saudaagar
Is preet ka ?? hai
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai

Dil tukde tukde ho jaaye
Dil tukde tukde ho jaaye
Phir bhi na zabaan se aah nikle
Phir bhi na zabaan se aah nikle
Ye pehla qadam hai ulfat ka
Hans kar kar lenge naam ??
Ye pyaar badaa beimaan hai
Ye ishq badaa badnaam hai
Hansna iska aaghaaz hai
Rona iska anjaam hai ae

Devnagri Script Lyrics:

ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है
हँसना इसका आगाज़ है
रोना इसका अंजाम है
हँसना इसका आगाज़ है
रोना इसका अंजाम है

जब चाँद सितारे सोते हैं
जब चाँद सितारे सोते हैं
दो नैन हमारे रोते हैं
दो नैन हमारे रोते हैं
हर अश्क ये मुझसे कहता है
अपने को छुपा ?? है ?
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है

ये प्यार की मंजिल मुश्किल
ये प्यार की मंजिल मुश्किल है
सीने में नाज़ुक सा दिल है ए
ये कठिन है सौदा सौदागर
इस प्रीत का ???
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है

दिल टुकड़े टुकड़े हो जाए
दिल टुकड़े टुकड़े हो जाए
फिर भी न ज़बान से आह निकले
फिर भी न ज़बान से आह निकले
ये पहला क़दम है उल्फत का
हंसकर कर लेंगे ??
ये प्यार बड़ा बेईमान है
ये इश्क बड़ा बदनाम है
हँसना इसका आगाज़ है
रोना इसका अंजाम है
