Missing Films of 1960s – 77
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

For quite some time, I was missing this film, thinking of the film ‘Poonam Ki Raat’, a 1965 film with music by Salil Chaudhry that is already Yippeee’d here on our blog. Careful scrutiny of the list prepared by Khyati Ben, brings me back to this film from 1967 – ‘Poonam Ka Chaand’.

Not much information is available about this film, other than what is present in the Geet Kosh. The songs of this film are partially available, but none of them seem to have as yet been published online. Once again, as far as I could search, and I know my search is not the best. 😉

The Geet Kosh lists this as a fantasy film, produced under the banner of MR Productions, Bombay and is directed by Suresh Tripathi. The cast of actors is briefly listed as Mahipal, Jaishri Gadkar, Sundar, Krishna Kumari, Heera Sawant, and Ram Singh. Hmmm. . . Mahipal is still active in lead roles in the year 1967 – wow.

Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Two lyricists are mentioned – Amar Chaturvedi and Saraswati Kumar Deepak. And a very interesting state of affairs emerges. 4 of the songs are written by Amar Chaturvedi and 5 by Saraswati Kumar Deepak. As per the listings, gramophone records seem to have been manufactured only for the songs written by Amar Chaturvedi. The records of the songs by Saraswati Kumar are either not manufactured, or are rare and not yet available in public domain. And so for practical purposes, only 4 songs of this film are available.

The name Amar Chaturvedi is new for the blog. He seems to be a one-film career person, well almost. In the Geet Kosh, his name appears for just this film, and one more song in the film ‘Truck Driver’ of 1970. Besides that, his name does not appear anywhere else, not even in any unreleased films listings. And for that reason, there is no other information available about this poet. I request other readers and friends to please add information about him, if available.

The song is a very lilting melody, appears to be a group dance song, in which a lady is being teased by her friends, who are saying that she is looking so beautiful, so tell us who is the person you are going to ensnare. The words are very lovely and enticing. The music and the arrangement of the chorus voices is very endearing. A wonderful song that has remained obscure for so many decades. Listen and enjoy.

“Baaraat”(1960) was produced and directed by K Amarnath for K Amarnath Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Ajit, Shakila, Mukri, Salim, Protima Devi, Murad, Shalini, Brahm Bhardwaj, Gulnar, Pandey, Amrit Rana, Ravikant, Sheila Kashmiri, Sajjan etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Baaraat”(1960) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised as a “aankh michauli” cum “sahelis teasing a lady” genre of song on Shakila and her sahelis, with Ajit also visible in the picturisation.

Ah yes – ‘Hunterwaali’. Seems that just like Tarzan, ‘Hunterwaali’ has been quite a favorite title and theme for film producers in India. The original ‘Hunterwaali’ was released in 1935 – with Fearless Nadia assaying the title role. This was followed in 1943 with a title variation of ‘Hunterwaali Ki Beti’. Then in 1959 came another ‘Hunterwaali’, this time the title role being played by Mehru. In 1972, came a production from the south. The female lead role was played by Jyotilakshmi. In 1978, yes, one more ‘Hunterwaali’ film was released. And guess, the lady playing the title role – it is Bindu.
[Ed Note: Atul ji points out that there is another ‘Hunterwaali’ film right there from the year 1959; the title is ‘Miss Hunterwaali’.]

After 1978, for lack of recorded data, it cannot be certainly said what other ‘Hunterwaali’ films came. There is a Bhojpuri film by this name in 2014-15. YouTube also informs us that there was a film by this title, produced in Pakistan also, in 1988.

As per the details recorded in HFGK, the film is produced by Madhav Rao and Rustom Irani under the banner of Golden Movies Corporation, Bombay and is directed by BJ Patel. The cast of actors is listed as Mehru, Samar Roy, Habeeb, Ram Raseela, Mirajkar, Jeet Bala, Kailash, Shri Bhagwan, Sattar, and Mohammad amongst others. Five songs are listed for this film. All the songs are written by Shaad. As I checked for this lyricists name in the Geet Kosh, I find that his name appears in just one more film viz., ‘Rifle Girl’ in 1958, which is also already represented here on our blog. Interestingly, the music director for ‘Rifle Girl’ (1958) and ‘Hunterwaali’ (1959) is the same – Harbans. In the Geet Kosh, we see his name appear in eight films over a period of 1958 to 1966.

Coming to the song itself. This wonderful melodious song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. The beginning of the song is so stirring. The chorus sound of “Lallal Laara, Lallaara” immediately speaks of a promise of a wonderful song to follow. And the promise is verily kept by the music director. One may listen to this tune and may comment that this tune is familiar, and that it is adapted from such and such and such other songs. But that analysis is not important. The lilt and the joy in this melody speaks for itself. Yet once again, the observations pan out – an obscure film (1960s and earlier), unknown or really very less known artists, nothing much available as information – all these characteristics combine to ensure some very lovely and mostly unheard, unfamiliar songs. This instance is no less.

So with this lilting song, the 1958 version of ‘Hunterwaali’ makes its debut on our blog today.

Song – Ye Behta Behta Paani, Ye Rut Ye Jawaani  (Hunterwaali) (1959) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Shaad, MD – Harbans

Today’s song is from the film ‘Alakh Niranjan’ (1940).

These days I am on a mission to collect and present valuable information on some less known actors and actresses, from the bygone era of the 30s and early 40s. Today also I will talk about a really forgotten actress of the silent era and the early Talkie films – LEELA CHANDRAGIRI or Miss Leela. Do not mix up this name with Leela Desai, Leela Sawant or Leela Mishra. All are different.

But before that, something about the film.The film’s name is ‘Alakh Niranjan’ aka ‘Gorakhnath’. We are all aware that “alakh niranjan” is the call given by the gossains (गोसाईं) (or followers) of Nath Sampradaay or the fakirs of Kabir Panth, when they visit a fixed number of households to ask for bhiksha (alms). When I was about 6 to 7 year old, during the visits to my Naani’s (maternal grandmother’s) home in a village, I used to hear this call from the gossain, who stood outside the door. Someone from the house used to give uncooked food material like rice, wheat or jowar. Even wheat atta was given. These gossains had a jholi (a spacious carrying bag made of cloth), having 4-5 compartments and they would expertly add the bhiksha to the appropriate compartment. They never took money. These people are also called by the name avadhoot (अवधूत) (a mystic or a saint who is beyond ego-consciousness, duality and common worldly concerns).

Alakh is a term used by Nath Sampradaay for The Creator. It signifies a nirgun (One that is beyond physical attributes) and nirakaar (One that is not bounded by form and shape) manifestation of the Supreme Power. The word alakh also means That which cannot be measured, or perceived by the physical sensory powers and intellect. Niranjan means spotless or pure. Primarily it is a call to identify the Nath Yogi. Niranjan is also another name for Lord Shiva.

A brief description of the Nath Sampradaay and about Gorakhnath.  It is likely that some of our readers may not be familiar with the details behind these names. In the Hindu Sanaatan traditions the worship of Lord Shiva is called Shaivism and the worshippers and followers of Lord Shiva are called Shaivs. Nath Sampradaay is a sub tradition within Shaivism. The followers of this tradition consider Adinath or Lord Shiva as their first Lord. The word Nath implies Master. In this tradition, there is a lineage of nine Gurus or Teachers. The form of sadhna practiced by the followers of this tradition is called Hath Yog (हठ योग).

The first Guru in this lineage is Matsyendra Nath, who is better known as Machhindra Nath. The traditional history recounts that Matsyendra was born under an inauspicious star. This warranted his parents to throw the baby into the ocean. In the ocean the baby was swallowed by a large fish, and he lived and grew up inside the belly of the fish, for many years. The fish swam to the bottom of the ocean where Lord Shiva was imparting the secrets of yoga to Mata Parvati. Matsyendra overheard this discourse and learnt the secrets of yoga. He began to practice this yog sadhana inside the fish’s belly. After twelve years he finally emerged as an enlightened Siddha.

There is a list of Nine Nath Gurus, who are called Navnath. The first Nath Guru is Machhindra. The complete list is as follows

  1. Machhindranath
  2. Gorakhnath
  3. Jalandhar Nath
  4. Kanif Nath (Kanhoba)
  5. Gahini Nath
  6. Raja Bhartrihari Nath (Bharthari)
  7. Revan Sidha Nath
  8. Charpati Nath  and
  9. Naag Nath.

The stories surrounding every Nath Guru, especially the earlier ones, are very exciting, thrilling and entertaining. One must read them from the original Nath Puraan or Nav Nath Pothi. I have read all of them. These stories are in no way less than any Arabian Night stories. Due to their entertainment value, several films in several languages have been made on the early Gurus like Machhindranath and Gorakhnath. Films on Machhindranath were made as ‘Maaya Machhindra’ in Hindi, in 1932, 1951, 1960 and 1975. Films on Gorakhnath as ‘Alakh Niranjan’, were made in 1940, 1950 and 1975. Films on Bharthari were made in 1932 and 1944. Films on other Naths were made as ‘Raja Gopichand’ in 1933, 1938 and 1950. Same way films on Naths in Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati and other languages were also made.

‘Alakh Niranjan’ is the story of Gorakhnath. The story of his birth is briefly given below.

The first Guru Machhindra Nath went to a house for bhiksha. The lady of the house, after giving him the bhiksha, asked him if he can bless her to bear a child, a wish that had remained unfulfilled thus far in her life. Guru Machhindra Nath dipped his hand in his jholi and took out some some vibhuti (ash). He gave it to her and asked her to partake it and that she will conceive a son. After he is gone, one of the neighbours tells the lady not to believe all this. The lady gets a doubt and throws the vibhuti on a pile of garbage.

Time passes. After 12 years, Machhindra Nath again comes to the lady and asks, how her son was. The lady, ashamed, tells him the truth. The Guru goes to the pile of garbage and gives a loud call, “My son, come here”.  From the garbage rises a son of about 12 years. He is Gorak Nath. Machhindranath takes him away and gives him the deeksha (anointing him as his disciple) of Nath Sampradaay. ‘Go‘ means Earth and ‘rakh‘ means to protect. So Gorakh is one who is protected by Mother Earth.

The film (1940 version) was made by Arun Pictures and directed by Bhal G Pendharkar (Bhalchandra Gopal Pendharkar – 3-5-1897 to 28-11-1994). Born at Kolhapur, he was the son of King Shahu Maharaja’s court physician Dr. Gopal Pendharkar, and Radhabai. He was awarded Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1991, when he was 94 year old already. More about this illustrious film director some other time. Let us now talk about the film’s heroine Miss Leela.

Leela Chandragiri was born in Chikodi, a town near Kolhapur, in a singing family. She learnt singing from a very young age. The talent hunters of Prabhat film company found her and she was brought to Kolhapur. She was beautiful, tall and wheat complexioned. She made her debut in V Shantaram’s silent film ‘Uday Kaal’ in 1930. She did the role of Bhawani Devi, who blesses Shivaji and gives him the Bhawani talwar (sword). Leela became famous by acting in the grand silent film ‘Chandrasena’ (1931) of Prabhat films.

Leela’s first talkie film was ‘Jalti Nishani’ (1932), a bilingual in Hindi and Marathi (as ‘Agni Kankan’). The hero in this film was Master Vinayak. Leela had no problem in delivering Hindi/Urdu dialogues as she was fluent in both languages. She became the heartthrob of the audiences. Being from a singing family and trained, singing came naturally to her. She sang her own songs starting from her first talkie film itself. In 1933, she appeared in ‘Maya Machhindra’ (1933), in which her hero was Master Vinayak again. They worked together again in a Marathi film ‘Sinhgad’. Prabhat’s first coloured film ‘Sairandhri’ (1933) also featured her in the main role. The film was processed in Germany.

After this, Prabhat Films shifted to Poona, but Leela chose to stay back in Kolhapur and decided to work with Bhalji Pendharkar. They became attracted to each others and got married. Leela already had two children, a son, Jaysingh and a daughter,  Madhavi. Bhalji adopted both children and gave them father’s love. Even Bhalji had one son from his first marriage – Prabhakar. Later, when they built their own studio, it was given the name Jayprabha. It combined his two sons’ names – JAYsingh and PRABHAkar. Madhavi got married to the Marathi author Ranjit Desai. Madhavi also authored one book herself.

Miss Leela appeared in the following films –

  • Jalti Nishani (1932)
  • Maya Machhindra (1932)
  • Sairandhri (1933)
  • Akashwani (1934)
  • Kaal Koot (1935)
  • Kaliya Mardan (1935)
  • Raja Gopichand (1938)
  • Alakh Niranjan (1940)
  • Maharathi Karna (1944)
  • Swarna Bhoomi (1944)
  • Valmiki (1946), and
  • Chhatrapati Shivaji (1952).

She mostly worked in films directed or made by Bhalji Pendharkar only.  During the riots in 1948 (on account of  Gandhi ji’s assasination), their Jayprabha studio was burnt down, because Bhalji was a Brahmin. However, within few years he built it again. After Bhalji’s death the studio was purchased by Lata Mangeshkar.

During Miss Leela’s career, contemporary to her, there were 3 more actresses named Leela active in Hindi films. One was Leela Desai (daughter of a Gujarati father and a Bengali mother from Bihar. She was born in America.). The second was Leela Mishra – who became Leela mausi later on. The third one was Leela Sawant – essentially a stunt film actress who worked in master Bhagwan’s films.

The music of this film was by DP Korgaonkar aka K Datta (who is known for film ‘Badi Maa’ (1945) and songs of Noorjehan). The main role of Gorakhnath was done by B Nandrekar. Other actors were Chandrakant (father of well known Marathi/Hindi actor Vikram Gokhale), Raja Paranjape (who became a famous Marathi director in the 1950’s decade) and others. There were 8 songs in the film. 4 were sung by Miss Leela. Both the film as well as the singer Miss Leela are making their debut on the blog today.

[Ed Note 1 : As I was noting the lyrics of this delightful song, I also noted that in this song, a lady is being teased by her friends. The lady is in the family way, carrying a child, and the friends are singing a song about it. The words and the phrases, as presented are so playful, so endearing, and at the same time, modest and innocent. The friends are singing of the progressing months in pregnancy, and how the lady is blossoming. Then when the time comes, she gives birth to a child. I do not remember hearing any other such song in HFM; maybe I am not aware. I can recall some songs that are sung by the husband wife couple who are expecting a child. The manner in which a group of friends are teasing an expectant mother – I think I am hearing for the first time. The wording is just so wonderful.

nanadi ne kheencha palla
boli kahaan hai lalla

Nanadi, the younger sister in law of the lady; she playfully pulls at her bhabhi’s palla and asks – o tell me, where is the child. The imagery created by these words and these lines is so wonderful. I would request other readers and friends to comment if there are other similar instances in the world of Hindi film songs.]

[Ed Note 2 : I request help from other readers with keener ears to help with one word marked as ?? in the lyrics below.]

Blog Day : 3508 Post No. : 14097

The film ‘Pyaase Dil’, from 1974 is an unfamiliar and obscure entity. However, not for the readers of this blog. This film has been discussed briefly, and not so briefly, in the three posts of the songs of this film that have appeared so far on this blog. The film has a total of four songs. This post brings forth the fourth and the final song of this film on to the blog today. I am sure the word is already in the mind and lips of the regulars, and I do not have to spell out Yippeee, to mark this event.

The earlier songs that have been posted on the blog are

Ye Dilnasheen Nazaare Karte Hain Kyaa Ishaare Pyaase Dil 6060 6-Jun-12
Jhukti Ghata Hamse Kahe Pyaase Dil 8558 19-Aug-13
Tum Mehekti Jawaan Chandni Ho Pyaase Dil 8605 29-Aug-13

As far as the film is concerned, there is nothing remarkable to be discussed, and maybe nothing remains in the collective public memory about it. But for the music. The songs that this film has, are all memorable, despite the fact that one is still surprised to hear the name of the film connecting to the songs. But well, it has to be. Music compositions are by Khaiyyaam, and the lyrics are written by Jaan Nissar Akhtar. Mukesh has rendered two of the four songs in this film. The third is a duet with Mahendra Kapoor and Jagjit Kaur, and the fourth is a chorus song led by Jagjit Kaur. With this combination, the songs indeed have to be remarkable, although they do nothing much for the film.

The storyline of the film in brief.

Poonam (role played by Alka) lives in a village with her mother (role played by Leela Misra). Together they run a small tea shop in the village. Poonam’s mother is in debt of the local Seth (role played by Maruti). Raja (role played by Aziz Mirza) is a truck driver who fancies Poonam. Romance happens, and they fall in love. Raja promises Poonam’s mother that he will help to payback the Seth’s debt, before he sits in the wedding pandal with her daughter. He gets a dangerous assignment to deliver explosives at a construction site in the hills. It is the day of his wedding. He is returning from his last delivery trip, when his truck meets with an accident, and he is hospitalized.

When Raja does not turn up for the wedding, Poonam’s mother has a heart attack and she passes away. The Seth now wants Poonam married to his son. But the son is aware that Poonam is already carrying Raja’s child before marriage, and he helps her to escape from the village. After three months, when Raja returns, he finds no tea shop, and no trace of Poonam.

After giving birth to a son, Poonam takes the child to a distant town. In the night, she places the child at the feet of a portrait of Jesus in a missionary hospital, and hides herself. The nursing staff discovers the child, and informs Dr. Joseph (role played by Pichoo Kapoor), who is the head of the hospital. Dr. Joseph decides that the hospital will adopt the child. The next day, Poonam, claiming her name to be Asha, also appears at his office, and begs for any work at the hospital. Dr Joseph, sensing a connection, allows her to stay as a cleaning woman.

Years pass. The child is now five years old. Poonam/Asha has worked hard to become a nurse at the hospital. At this juncture, Dr. Anand (role played by Yash Tandon) joins the hospital, leaving a lucrative job in a large city. He takes a fancy to both the child, and the nurse Asha. The child thus far knows Asha only as Didi, as he is not yet aware that she is actually his mother. Romance develops between the doctor and the nurse, and the things start moving towards matrimony, as Anand takes Asha home to meet his mother (role played by Shyama).

A train accident happens close to the hospital, and many injured patients are brought in. Destiny brings Raja also to this hospital, as one of the injured passengers, who has lost his eyesight in the accident. He recuperates, and Anand decides to attempt a difficult operation to restore Raja’s eyesight. In the intervening time, Raja senses something familiar in the voice and touch of the nurse Asha, and Asha realizes that he is her Raja, once the bandages come off his face. The dilemma becomes more complicated, as Raja figures out that Asha is his Poonam, and that he is the father of the child. He also realizes that Anand and Asha/Poonam are getting married.

The eye operation happens. On the day that the bandages are removed, he pretends that the operation has failed and he has not recovered his eyesight. And after some days, feigning blindness, but otherwise fit, he leaves the hospital with a blind man’s walking stick. During his stay, he has had conversations with Anand, about his past. As the story progresses, Anand also figures out the truth, and he confronts Asha. In the conversation he reveals that he is aware of the relationship between Raja, Asha/Poonam and the child. Unknown to them, the child is also listening to the conversation, and he comes to know that the blind patient Raja is his father. He runs away from the hospital, chasing the departed Raja who is pretending to be blind. Anand runs after the child.

The child reaches close to Raja, on a road that has vehicular traffic also. The child comes close to being hit by a vehicle, when Raja, throwing away his stick, rescues the child. Anand also reaches at that moment; all secrets on all sides are now in the open. The happy ending is that the family of Raja, Poonam and child are finally united. But Anand is left alone.

The one important sticky point in this story that makes it un-convincing is that when Asha/Poonam realizes the identity of the patient to be her lost bridegroom-to-be, she should happily reclaim both him and the child. Her silence at this juncture is not explicable. Except that the film would have been shorter by about 30 minutes. 🙂

Today’s song is a wedding song, in which the sahelis of the bride are teasing her. The words tell of the beauty and the comeliness of the bride, about the anxiety of the wait for the groom’s arrival, and also tease her about how her beau will embrace and kiss her. The singing voice is of Jagjit Kaur, accompanied by chorus.

On screen, the song is performed by, well I need help here to identify the lead singer. Is she Prema Narayan? I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to identify her. We also see Alka, dressed up as the bride and waiting for the groom’s arrival. The groom, actor Aziz Mirza,  appears for brief moments intermittently, as he is heading back to his village riding the truck that he drives. For a brief moment we also see Benjamin Gilani, seated amongst the guests. He is the best friend of the groom, and he too is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the groom.

The film is produced under the banner of New Ashok International, and is directed by Charandas Shokh. The star case consist of Yash Tandan, Aziz Mirza, Alka, Benjamin Gilani, Kumud Tripathi, Leela Mishra, Pinchoo Kapoor, Maruti, Shyama, Master Teeto. The songs of the film are penned by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar and the music composition is by Khaiyyaam Sb.

With this post, the film ‘Pyaase Dil’ now joins the select group of films with all songs posted here.

Chorus

Lyrics

sakhi ri sharmaaye

ghazab kare haaye badan tan tan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

khushboo ye haaron ki

laage najriya gori
tujhko sitaaron ki
ho tujhko sitaaron ki
khushboo ye haaron ki
solah singaaron ki
laage najriya gori
tujhko sitaaron ki

ke pad gaye shor
tere joban ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

bolun main gori se
socha hai chori se
jaldi se aaye miley
chanda chakori se
ho chanda chakori se
bolun main gori se
socha hai chori se
jaldi se aaye miley
chanda chakori se
ho chanda chakori se
ke baithe hareyaan sapne sajan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

dheere se aaye ke
ghunghata uthaaye ke
choomenge sajna tujhe
garwa lagaaye ke
ho garwa lagaaye ke
dheere se aaye ke
ghunghata uthaaye ke
choomenge sajna tujhe
garwa lagaaye ke

main waari hothon ki laali par
phoolon bhari baali par
nainon ki pyaali par
angiya ki jaali par
ghazab kare haaye badan tan tan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

Missing Films of 1960s – 47
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The debut film for today is the stunt film ‘Faulaadi Mukka’ from 1965. Interesting to note that the production company is Madras Films, Bombay. The film is directed by S Azeem. The lead actors are Azaad and Indira. The supporting cast is listed as Kammo, Sherry, Murad, Sadhana Khote, Babu Raje, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ram Raseela, Mubarak, Lala Bhaiya, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Tuntun, Baburao Pehalwan, Pehalwan, and Julian etc.

This obscure film has recently become available online – the complete film and its songs are available as video clips online. The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. The songs are written by three lyricists – Akhtar Romani, Tabish Kanpuri and Saba Afghani. The song presented today is penned by Akhtar Romani. Music is by Iqbal. It is to be noted that this music director is not the same person as Iqbal Qureshi. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

The song is performed on screen by Indira. In the video clip of the song, we also have a brief glimpse of Muraad, watching Indira singing. The song is a ‘missing the loved one’ genre song, as the young lady describes how much she is missing her beau.

Enjoy.

Today (14 april 2017) as I write this post, I cannot help but remember Legendary Singer Shamshad Begum. It is after all her Birthday. It has been nearly four years since She left for her heavenly abode. Like two of my favourites S D Burman and C Ramchandra, She was born in and passed away in the same month. In her case it was the month of April. She was born on 14th April 1919 at Lahore (as She told me when I interviewed her) and passed away on 23rd April 2013. Today (14 april 2017) would have been her 98th Birthday.
