“Vikramadiyta”(1945) was directed by Vijay Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The historical movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Ratnamala, Baburao Pendharkar, Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Bhagwandas, Jillo etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Vikramadiyta”(1945) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rajkumari and Manna Dey. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair.

I have not been able to get the lyrics of this song right at one place. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the gaps/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable. The lyrics of this romantic song are in chaste Sanskritised Hindi, which to mind is quite appropriate and extremely suitable for a song of this nature. It is a rare song that deserves to be better known among music lovers. To those who may be wondering, this song is about a ras ka lobhi bhanwra getting trapped inside a flower. The lady is wondering why the lotus flower is swaying despite there being no breeze, and the gentleman (King Vikramaditya most probably) explains that is a bhanwra, trapped inside the flower that is trying to come out. Very nice imagination from the poet.

ab shakti hai apni naap raha

हैं गगन में बादल ठहरे हुए
हैं गगन में बादल ठहरे हुए
और पवन भी चल चुपचाप रहा

हैं स्थीर आज बन बेल वृक्ष
कोई पंखी ना राग अलाप रहा

सुंदर प्रभात शीतल किरणें

तेरे मन में समा क्या पाप रहा

यूं कमल बता क्यों काँप रहा
फिर कहो कमल क्यों काँप रहा

संध्या को आ चुपचाप रहा

अब शक्ति अपनी नाप रहा

है तड़प रहा वो मुक्ति को

इस लिए कमल है काँप रहा

Today’s song is from a rare and less known film ‘Lakharani’ from 1945.

Although this was a film made by the great Prabhat Film Company of Poona, unlike earlier Prabhat films this movie never became famous or a landmark film. The reasons were many. The main reason was that it was was made in the period when the company had become very weak after V Shantaram left Prabhat Studios along with some of his chosen people from various departments. Secondly, the storyline of this film was far away from the type of films Prabhat had made in the past. True to its tradition, however, the film had a central theme of “open entry for all castes into Hindu temples“. But it was told through a story of tribal folks and allied jungle people, with whom probably, the audience could not  identify themselves.

Thirdly, the songs and music of this film was below average. The music director, Master Krishnarao Phulambrikar (1891-1974) had a reputation of being an Orthodox Sangeet Natak classicist. His songs never became popular except perhaps the multi-language song of Shanta Hublikar in the film ‘Aadmi’ (1939) (‘Manoos’ in Marathi). Even his contemporary Keshvrao Bhole gave more popular songs. His only film giving good music was Rajkamal’s ‘Mali’ (1944), wherein he himself was the hero opposite Ameerbai Karnataki.

The film was directed by Vishram Bedekar – more famous as a playwright and a script writer. His scripts used to be quite complex. He wrote the story of ‘Lakharani’, in addition to directing it. Vishram Bedekar (b. 1906), Marathi and Hindi film director, best known as a writer, was born in Amravati, Eastern Maharashtra. He started his career with the Sangeet Natak company Balwant Sangeet Mandali as a playwright-lyricist. From there, he moved to film-making when the theatre group expanded its box-office draw by producing ‘Krishnarjun Yuddha’, starring the group’s writer-actor Chintamanrao Kolhatkar. Unlike other films produced by Sangeet Natak companies (e.g. Lalitkaladarsh), the film succeeded commercially and he co-directed three more with the group’s owner-producer Vamanrao N Bhatt. He scripted the mythological ‘Pundalik’ (1936) and, according to his autobiography, he also co-directed the film with VN Bhatt.

He briefly studied film-making in the UK in 1938. In that same year, he published his first novel, ‘Ranangan’  on his return to India. He joined Prabhat Studios briefly to write Shantaram’s ‘Shejari’ / ‘Padosi’ (1941). In 1944, he returned to the studio to script ‘Ramshastri’, a re-edited version of which, credited to him, was later released as a children’s film entitled ‘Ramshastri Ka Nyay’. In 1945, he directed ‘Lakharani’ which incidentally is Guru Dutt’s début film. He went on to make classic melodramas for Baburao Pendharkar’s New Huns, Baburao Pai’s Famous Pics and Minerva Movietone. He wrote the script for Shantaram’s ‘Amar Bhoopali’ (1951). Later he directed the early productions of Ramsay Brothers, viz. ‘Rustom Sohrab’ (1963) and ‘Ek Nannhi Munni Ladki Thi’ (1970).

Vishram Bedekar worked in modernist frame defined by K Narayan Kale’s generation and GB Shaw. Most of his literary and film works recast stereotypes of pre-WW I Marathi social reform novels into the declamatory style of prose melodrama with increasingly complex storylines. As a playwright, his works include ‘Brahmakumari’, ‘Vaje Paool Apule’ and ‘Tilak Ani Agarkar’ (1980). In 1985, he published his autobiography – ‘Ek Jhaad Ani Don Pakshi’.
(Note: The above bio sketch of Vishram Bedekar is adapted from Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema.)

‘Lakharani’ is important for one reason – Guru Dutt made his acting debut with this film. Guru Dutt (9-7-1925 to 10-10-1964) did the role of Lachman, brother of the heroine Lakharani, in this film. After doing a basic course in dancing from the dance academy of the famous dancer Uday Shanker, in Almora, he joined Prabhat Studios as a choreographer. However, in his first film he was only an actor and an assistant director to Vishram Bedekar. In his second film ‘ Hum Ek Hain’ (1946), he worked as the choreographer and as an assistant to PL Santoshi, the debutant director of the film. Later he was assistant director to Anadinath Bannerjee for the film ‘Mohan’ (1947), to Amiya Chakravarty for the film ‘Girls School’ (1949) and to Gyan Mukherjee for the film ‘Sangram’ (1950). His first stint as an independent director came with iconic film ‘Baazi’ (1951).

Another actor Ramsingh had a major role in the film ‘Lakharani’. Earlier he had done a small role in the film ‘Ramshastri’ (1944). Ramsingh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he appeared as a hero and also in villain’s role in many films. Information about him was not available anywhere on the internet till today. For the first time, this information is appearing here today. His entry in films and his life story makes a very interesting read.

During the 1942 ‘Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated the hostels. As a result of this, two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Thakur – later to become famous as Kavi Pradeep; and the other was Ramsingh – who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then went on to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall, fair and handsome. V Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. Because he never returned home, his family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly, that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! there he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and enquired. The officials brought them face to face with their own son – Ramsingh !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (UP), in 1920. After graduating, while still doing his MA, he joined films. His first film was ‘Ramshastri’ (1944), then came ‘Chand’ (1944), ‘Lakhrani’ (1945) and ‘Hum Ek Hain (1946) – all Prabhat films. While with Prabhat Studios, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they would give him a role in almost every film they made.

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with heroine Ranjit Kumari (real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he got 4 children.

Ramsingh played hero, villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films, besides the four films from Prabhat Studios are, ‘Gaon’ (1947), ‘Shaheed’ (1948), ‘Khidki’ (1949), ‘Aparadhi’ (1950) – he was the hero, opposite to Madhubala, ‘Sargam’ (1950), ‘Sangram’ (1950), ‘Shrimati ji’ (1952),  ‘Jaal’ (1952), ‘Baaz’ (1953) etc. In the latter part of his career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and mythologicals. His last films were ‘Sati Sulochana’ (1969), ‘Veer Chhatrasaal’ (1971) and ‘Mere Bhaiya’ (1972); the last two being released after he retired from films.

When film ‘Jaal’ (1952) was imported into West Pakistan (on the East Pakistan quota), the Pak film industry started an agitation against Indian films, demanding a total ban on Indian films in Pakistan, as they believed the Indian films were killing their business. Leader of this agitation was WZ Ahmed, once a successful director/producer in India (from the erstwhile Shalimar Films of Poona and the mentor and husband of actress Neena). Consequently, Indian films were banned in Pakistan, at a later stage.

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit Kumari and children in 1970 and started doing agriculture. The then UP Chief Minister HN Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. To help him, Bahuguna established the UP Film Corporation and made Ramsingh its chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined the off shoot party Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the agriculture business again. He started drinking heavily, against medical advise and died in 1984, in his village.
(Note: The above bio sketch of Ramsingh is adapted with thanks, from Javed Hamid’s forthcoming book ‘हिन्दी सिनेमा के कुछ जाने अंजाने फनकार’.)

The spelling of film title – ‘Lakharani’, was an enigma. In many places, including the Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, the film is spelt as LAKHRANI, while the HFGK says LAKHARANI. To get the correct information, I wrote to Shri Harmandir Singh ji. He promptly sent me a copy of the film booklet and confirmed that the correct name is LAKHARANI only. Thanks, Hamraz ji. The cast of the film is Durga Khote, Monica Desai, Azuri, Sapru, Ramsingh, Guru Dutt, etc. The story of this film is,

Bichwa (Durga Khote) is the queen of a devout untouchable community, which is not permitted to enter any temple. Her daughter Lakharani marries the prince from a community of atheists and hence is excommunicated by her own tribe.The devout group has their devotion tested by economic setbacks and a major conflict erupts between them and the atheists’ community. But God materialises on earth, thus solving the problems of belief and its attendant conflicts. Untouchability is abolished and they all can enter temples and worship also.

The film has 6 songs. Though the record numbers are given by HFGK, the name of singers is not mentioned for any song. The lyricist is Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the composer is Master Krishnarao Phulambrikar. No songs were found on the net or the You Tube, so I turned to our in-house collector, Sudhir ji. He promptly informed me that he has 4 songs of this film. On my request he not only sent me 2 songs, but also uploaded today’s song on my request. Thank you Sudhir ji, you are a great help indeed.

Lakharani makes her debut on this Blog today. Enjoy its first ever song. . .

(Ed Note: The title line of this song is modified, after listening to the song. In the Geet Kosh, this song corresponds to the song at sl. no. 6, which is listed as “Ab Moti Giraane Lagi Saawan Ki Ghataayen”. After listening to the song, it is observed that the refrain “Ik Gori Ki Aankhon Se. . .” is repeated after each antaraa, and is the more appropriate title line for the song.)

ik gori ki aankhon se mujhe pyaar hua hai
mujhe pyaar hua hai

अब मोती गिराने लगीं सावन की घटाएँ
बगिया में बिखरने लगीं बुलबुल की सदाएं

हा हा हाहा

खिलने के लिए फूल भी तैयार हुआ है
खिलने के लिए फूल भी तैयार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
सुंदर मेरी आशाओं का संसार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ कोयल दुनिया को सुनाओ ये फसाना
ओ पंछीओ गाओ मेरी दुनिया को जगाना
ओ पंछीओ गाओ मेरी दुनिया को जगाना
अब हाथ पकड़ हाथ से इक़रार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ गोरी की पायल ज़रा झंकार सुना दे
ये भेद मेरे दिल का ज़माने को सुना दे॰॰ए॰॰ए
आबाद मेरे फूलों का संसार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

ओ नदिया की लहरों ये किनारे को बता दो
तूफान की मौजों को मेरा हाल सुना दो॰॰ओ॰॰ओ
दो लहरों में मिल जाने का इक़रार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है
इक गोरी की आँखों से मुझे प्यार हुआ है
मुझे प्यार हुआ है

Today we pay tribute here on the blog to Mahendra Kapoor, one of the well-known voices of the golden era of Hindi music, on the occasion of his 9th death anniversary. There are many ways to start this tribute but, instead of “getting my eye in”, let me, Sehwag-style, straightaway go for it. By “it”, I mean the elephant in the room.

Feroze Khan – a name that forever spells flamboyance and style. Almost sounding like the Kingdom of the Pathaan. A popular and likeable persona who had to face near disapproval as a leading man, till quite many years into his career. And that too, when he decided to take on the industry on his own terms, and set up his own production house, delivering one hit film after another.

Remembering Feroze Khan on his 78th anniversary of birth today (25th September).

It is 8thSeptember. Our beloved Asha Bhonsle’s 84thbirthday. So let me wish her a very Happy Birthday with this very lively number from her Non- Film album ‘Janam Samjha Karo’ (1997).

Saga Of Sleepless Nights -1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.

hum kahin bhi hon
chale aayenge

What an extraordinary promise this is.

We had a small get together of music lovers, earlier in the day today. And for the day it is, part of our conversation revolved around Rafi Sb, and his persona, and his legacy. ‘God’s Own Man’ is the phrase expressed by one of the gathering. Certainly, all people are God’s people. But then some are special. They are ‘God’s Own People’. Humble and giving – the two traits that stand out as shining beacons in this industry that is famous for cutthroat competition, and the rule of money power. So much corruption and cruelty bleeds into it, and in turn, generates more cruelty and heartlessness.

Today is a special day for Atulites and each one of us on our Whatsapp Group knows that it is Blog’s 9th anniversary. The Blog’s anniversary is the mother of all other celebrations connected with it. Otherwise how would it be possible to celebrate century songs, artists’ centuries, artists’ birth anniversaries, the remembrance days, other special occasions etc without the existence of the Blog?

This song is the 100th duet of Rafi Sb and Geeta Dutt to be posted here on our blog.

As I was browsing the net earlier in the day, checking for articles and source material on Guru Dutt, I came across this she’er (couplet) which was written by the poet Kaifi Azmi in 1964, on hearing the news of Guru Dutt’s demise.

रहने को सदा दहर में आता नहीं कोई,
तुम जैसे गए ऐसे भी जाता नहीं कोई
माना की उजालों ने तुम्हें दाग़ दिये थे,
बे रात ढले शमा बुझाता नहीं कोई

rehne ko sadaa dehar mein aata nahin koi
tum jaise gaye aise bhi jaata nahin koi
maana ki ujaalon ne tumhen daagh diye the
be-raat dhale shama bujhaata nahin koi

It is true, no one comes in this world
To reside for ever
But the way you departed
No one even leaves that way
Granted that the brightness of flame
May have inflicted painful burns
But still, no one douses the lamp
Before the night comes to an end

Remembering Guru Dutt, the vital genius of Hindi cinema, on his anniversary today (9 july 2017). Had he been alive, he would have been 92 today.
