The history of Lahore film industry is as old as the era of silent films. When talkies started getting produced from early 1930s, the Lahore film industry seems to have lost the race to Bombay (Mumbai) and Calcutta (Kolkata) in producing Hindi/Urdu films. Many film artists based in Lahore started migrating to Calcutta and Bombay looking for greener pastures. But the decade of 1940s saw two prominent Lahore based film productions companies holding their own against the big production houses of Bombay and Calcutta viz. Bombay based Ranjit Movietone and Bombay Talkies and Calcutta based New Theatres. They were Pancholi Art Pictures of Dalsukh Pancholi and Shorey Pictures of Roop K Shorey.

Surajmukhi (1950) was produced under the banner of Madhuban Pictures and was directed by OP Datta. The star cast included Shyam and Rehana in the lead roles with Gope, Yashodara Katju, Randhir, Durga Khote, Hafeez Jahan, Cuckoo etc in the supporting roles. I did not get any information about the contents of the film. I guess from the songs that the film belonged to the social genre with some shades of romance in it.

I am back again to old films. This time it is a fun song from film Kaneez-1949.

After the partition in 1947, normalcy was returning in both Pakistani and Indian film industries by 1948-49. Most migrations-both ways- were over, though minor ones continued up to the mid 1960s. After 1965, there was no exchange of films, nor was there any movement of artistes between the two countries- barring a few exceptions in case of artistes. The new rulers of Pakistan were convinced that Indian films( being superior in every aspect ) were killing their indigenous film industry. Perhaps they forgot that majority of adult population of Pakistan had grown up on Indian films, music and the culture. And therefore smuggling of Indian films and Music became a huge business in Pakistan after the 1960s.

Today’s song is perhaps the first ever song of S D Batish that I am discussing here. Not that I avoided his songs or his songs were not good enough for me, but may be all his popular songs were already discussed here by others and I just did not get any of his songs for my purpose. It is purely a coincidence. Actually, I have lot of respect for S D Batish, who did a marvellous job of promoting Indian Music in UK and USA. He is one of the rare people who left the film world, but continued serving the Music by turning a corner in his life.
