Today’s song is from the film Ghar Ki Izzat (1948). It is a lively duet of Shamshad Begum and Ram Kamlani. The film is produced and directed by Ram Daryani, under the banner of Murli Cinetone, Bombay. Music was given by Pt Gobind Ram and songs and dialogues were by Ishwar Chandra Kapoor. The cast of the film was Mumtaz Shanti, Dilip Kumar, Gope, Gulab, Dixit, Manorama, Jeevan, Suleiman etc etc.

In the early decades of talkie era, i.e. in the 1930s and 40s, many Muslim actors and actresses took on Hindu names, for obvious reasons. Here are some such examples – Mumtaz Shanti (real name – Mumtaz Begum), Renuka Devi (Begum Khurshid Mirza), Neena (Shahida), Meena Shorey (Khursheed Jehan), Geeta Nizami (Rasheeda Begum), Madhubala (Mumtaz Jehan), Indurani (Ishrat Jehan), Veena (Tajour Sultana), Shyama (Khurshid Akhtar), Dilip Kumar (Yusuf Khan), Jayant (Zakaria Khan), Kumar (Syed Ali Hasan Zaidi), Suresh (Naseem Ahmed), Sudhir (Shah Zamaan Khan) and many more.

However, not all did this. Those who did not change name were Mehboob Khan, Mazhar Khan, Ashraf Khan, Najmul Hasan, Zubeida, Noorjehan, Khursheed etc etc.

After Independence, this trend diminished, but a new trend started – that of taking on a screen name other than the real name. Some examples are Sunil Dutt, Balraj Sahni, Sanjeev kumar, Raaj Kumar, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Akshay Kumar etc. A full article can be written on this subject, but this is enough for now.

Film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ was the only film Mumtaz Shanti did with Dilip kumar. Compared to young Dilip Kumar, Mumtaz Shanti was more successful and experienced with films like ‘Basant’ (1942) and ‘Kismet’ (1943). She had worked with top actors of that era, like Ashok Kumar. In this film, you can see an awkward Dilip Kumar and a vibrant and seasoned actress Mumtaz Shanti.

Mumtaz Shanti or Mumtaz Begum was born in 1922 at village Dinga in Punjab (now in Pakistan). She lost her parents early and she was brought up by her uncle who was a police constable. After his transfer to Lahore, Mumtaz was able to continue her schooling. She learnt dancing and music. She was also an expert in household chores. At the start of filmi career, she was at first rejected by Shorey Pictures. But then the famous writer/lyricist Wali Saheb helped her and took her to Calcutta’s East India Film Co. to work in a Punjabi film ‘Sohni Kumharan’ (1937). She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambey Di Daali’ (1941) in Calcutta. Now the things were different and she was invited by Shorey Pictures to Lahore, to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘ (1942). This film was immensely successful and ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies  offered her a role in their film ‘Basant’ (1942). She came to Bombay and did Basant and then ‘Kismet’ (1943). Both the films were hits all over India.  Mumtaz was good looking, tall and lithe, so looked attractive. After ‘Kismet’ she became a free lancer and worked with many different studios. Her notable films are ‘Badalti Duniya’ and ‘Sawaal’ (1943), ‘Bharthari’, ‘Lady Doctor’ and ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944), ‘Chaand Chakori’ (1945), ‘Shravan Kumar’, ‘Dharti’, ‘Magadhraj’ and ‘Pujari’ (1946), ‘Dekhojee’ and ‘Doosri Shadi’ (1947), ‘Padmini’, ‘Heer Ranjha’ and ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ (1948), ‘Putli’, ‘Biwi’ and ‘Aahuti’ (1950). Her last film in India was ‘Zamaane Ki Hawa’ (1952). In all she worked in 21 Hindi and 4 Punjabi films. She did 2 films in Calcutta, 4 in Lahore and the rest in Bombay.

She married lyricist/writer/director Wali Saheb in 1947. He directed her in 3 films in India. He was very strict and forced her to come to studios only in burqa. She was not allowed to talk to anyone. No one was allowed to touch her, even in any scene. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Wali Saheb did 3-4 films in Pakistan, without much success. He passed away in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti passed away in 1993/94, unsung and unknown in Pakistan.

After Independence films were being made on social values which the Indian people wanted to inculcate in their new life, like importance of joint families, need to do hard work, need to abolish bad customs like dowry, bridging the gap between the rich and the poor, importance of education, women’s emancipation, abolition of castes and untouchability, respecting elders and traditions etc. Thus it will be seen that every film had some or the other message for the society.

This was also one such film, in which the makers stressed the need to strengthen the joint family tradition and to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. The film had become quite popular, as it did not sound like a propaganda film but the message was conveyed in a very entertaining way. The songs were good and became popular. The music of this film is composed by Pt Gobind Ram.

Pt Gobind Ram was a highly respected composer in the industry for his originality. Stalwarts like C Ramchandra considered Sajjaad Husain and Pt Gobind Ram ji as the original composers. It is stated by Pankaj Raag in his book ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’ that in the mid 1940s, “. . . when K Asif planned his magnum opus ‘Mughal e Azam’, he had initially engaged Gobindram ji as the music director”. It is another thing that the film was delayed, for other reasons, by almost 15 years. Almost all the main players in the film got changed during this period of delay, including the music director. During his career, Pt Gobind Ram gave music to 32 films from 1937 to 1955, composing 302 songs.

Just before writing this article, I saw this film on YouTube to refresh my memory. I had seen the film in the early 1950s in its second run in Hyderabad. The cast of the film includes the name Dixit.  Only a handful readers will recollect who he was, but there was a time in the early talkie era of 1930s and the 40s when he was a popular name. He and actor Ghory had formed a comic pair on the lines of the Laurel and Hardy team of the English cinema. In those days 4 comedians were popular – Dixit, Ghory, Kesari and Charlie.

Manohar Janardan Dikshit (this became Dixit in film line) was born on 12-11-1906 at Sinnar in Nashik district of Maharashtra. It seems, his arrival in this world was predicted by a sadhu. Somehow, in Dixit’s career, roles of sadhu played a vital role. He acted as a sadhu in as many as 31 films. His father was a district judge and was very strict at home. Due to frequent transfers, Dixit lost interest in studies. After two unsuccessful attempts in matriculation, he stopped going to school.

He started his film career as an assistant cameraman in Navjeevan Studio, with the help of Mama Varerkar, a noted Marathi writer who was associated with many studios of Hindi films. Of course Dixit did not learn anything of cinematography and did only manual works like carrying the camera etc. On the 14th November 1929, he faced the camera for his first role in the silent film ‘Sparkling Youth’ with P Jairaj and Madhav Kale. In Navjeevan Studios he did 3 more silent films and then joined the prospering, upcoming Ranjit Film company. Here he met his future partner Nazir Ahmed Ghory, who was born on 11-8-1901 at Bombay. Ghory was a graduate in those days. They paired in their first comedy film, ‘Char Chakram’ (1932), directed by Jayant Desai. The four ‘chakrams‘ in the film were Dixit, Ghory, Eddie Bilimoria and Madhuri. It was a hit film and the comedy pair became famous. They copied Laurel and Hardy. They even looked like them. Dixit was the Hardy part of the team.

They continued working together till 1947. I do not know exactly, but my guess is that they worked together in about 20 films. After partition, Ghory migrated to Pakistan and Dixit worked alone. Dixit was described by Baburao Patel as ‘our best comedian’. He was the darling of film critics too. Unfortunately, all the Ranjit Films where in they worked together were destroyed along with other negatives and except for few photos and stories about them, nothing remains now. Dixit worked in 4 silent and 66 Talkie films in 17 years’ time. For a person carrying 220 pounds weight, it was really creditable.

After the film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’, Dixit suffered from a heart attack and he passed away on 29-6-1949 (adapted from Eena Meena Deeka and MuVyz, with thanks.)

The story of the film,

Seth Chunilal (Dixit) is a rich person. His daughter Radhika (Manorama) has married Chaman (Gope) who is their ‘ghar jamaai‘. He does not work anywhere. Radhika’s mother (Gulab) taunts him every now and then and one day, frustrated Radhika leaves the house along with Chaman. They start an insurance business and prosper in a village nearby. Chunilal’s son Chander (Dilip Kumar) becomes a lawyer. He visits his sister in the village. In same village, lives Roopa (Mumtaz Shanti) with her two brothers (Jeevan and Suleiman).

Chander gets introduced to this family, falls in love with Roopa and they get married. Upon coming to the city home, Chander’s mother starts taunting the new bahu on her poverty. Bahu, being adarsh bhartiya nari tolerates everything, but Chander gets frustrated and starts drinking. Sister Radhika and Chaman bring him to their house.

Chander’s mother and father start repenting and finally they go to Chander and Roopa, beg their pardon and bring them back with honour. They even call Chander and Radhika, but they refuse to come back, as they have prospered now.

So, all is well that ends well.

 

This film has 11 songs. According to the blog 6 songs are already discussed, but it transpires that one song ‘Ae Dard Zara Dum Le’ posted on 17-5-2011 and included as this film’s song, is actually a song from film ‘Zamana’ (1938). It was only used in this film as a radio song. So actually only 5 songs are covered. Today’s song is the 6th song from this film. In the video, Gope and Manorama singing this melodious song. The newer generation folks will remember the Chachi in the 1972 film ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’. Ah yes, this is the same Manorama.

Today’s song is from film Nishan-49. the film was made by Gemini Studios,Madras and the Director was S.S.Vasan. Music for this costume drama was by a team of 3 Gemini composers,namely – Rajeshwar rao,M.D.Parthasarathy and B.K.Kalla. For the song under discussion, the composer was B.K.Kalla.

As many as three films named “Nishaan” have been made over the years, in 1949, 1965 and 1983.

Initially, in the early era, Bombay was the biggest centre for film making. When the Talkie films started, other smaller centres in those times, like Lahore and the South woke up. For Lahore, language was not a problem and so there was a traffic between Lahore and Bombay film people for work and technology. Thus few centres for film production prospered in Lahore-like Pancholi and Shorey etc.

But for South, Language was the biggest hurdle in having connections with Bombay. For the first few years, some Tamil and Telugu films were made in Bombay. Some southern film makers like L.V.Prasad worked in Bombay in their initial career and learnt the tricks of the trade-as they say. Later on L V Prasad became one of the biggest film producers in South owning Studios, Laboratories and related industries. Incidentally, while in Bombay, L V Prasad became the only actor who worked in the First Hindi Talkie, Alam Ara-31, First Tamil Talkie,Kalidas-31 and First Telugu Talkie, Bhakta Prahlad-32 all made at Bombay !

However soon the South established its own production centre at Madras and made Tamil, Telugu, Malyalam and Kannada films. In 1948, S.S.Vasan of Gemini Studios, released his ambitious Tamil/ Hindi film ” Chandralekha ” all over India with 600 film prints. The extraordinary success of ‘Chandralekha’-48 gave a clear idea to South producers how hugh the Hindi market was. With a 3 million investment, Vasan earned 20 million from ‘Chandralekha’.

After the unprecedented foray of Gemini’s Vasan’s hit film Chandralekha-48. Subramaniam Srini Vasan or simply S S Vasan, became aware of the unlimited scope of the Hindi belt market for south-made Hindi films.

Vasan was a writer, Editor, producer and Director, but above all, he was a Business Tycoon. He had established the popular Tamil magazine “Anand Vikatan”, and owned Gemini studios, Gemini Laboratories and Gemini distribution circuits. He soon decided to take advantage of the success of Chandralekha and made another Trilingual film . In Tamil it was called “Apoorva sahodarargal”, in Telugu, it was “Apoorva Sahodaralu”, and in Hindi it was called “Nishan”-49. This film too was a great success.

Encouraged by this, S S Vasan made his 1943 Tamil Hit film “Mangamma Sapatham”-43, into a remake in Hindi with the name “Mangala”-50.
Not by coincidence, but by design, the Hero for all these 3 remakes and the originals was Ranjan. (This film was remade in Sinhalese as “Mathalan” in 1955 and in Telugu as “Mangamma shapatham”in 1965- featuring N T Ramarao, later the Chief Minister of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, and Jamuna).

Encouraged with all this, the enthusiastic adventurer called Vasan took his 1949 hit Tamil film ” Vazhakan ” and made a Telugu remake, “Jeevitham”-50 and a Hindi remake,” Bahar-51″, introducing Vyjayanti mala. ‘Bahar’ was a box office hit. Vasan next made ” Ladki-53″ in Hindi, with simultaneous remakes in Tamil (Penn) and Telugu (Sangham).

Today’s film under discussion, Nishan-49 is a remake of original Tamil film, ‘ Apoorva Sahodarargal ‘-49. It was based loosely on Douglas Fairbanks’ film ” The Corsican Brothers “-41. The inspiration came from Alexander Duma’s novel of the same name published in 1844.

When the Tamil film was being made, the Hero was decided as M.K.Radha of Chandralekha fame, Heroine was P.Bhanumathy, but an actor for the Villain’s role was not decided. Many actors were considered, but finally Vasan decided on R.Nagendra,a veteran of Kannada stage. Vasan’s judgement proved correct. Nagendra acted so well that all critics were full of praises. Vasan continued Nagendra for the Telugu remake( Apoorva Sahodaralu) and for Hindi version-Nishan. It is to the credit of Nagendra that he picked up fluent Tamil, Telugu and Hindi pronunciations quickly and with great accuracy too in no time !.

Today’s song is sung by Shamshad Begum and many male voices and it is a Multi language song , having few lines in Bangla, Punjabi, Gujarati and Tamil language also. The original song in Tamil was also a Multi language one having few lines in Malyalam, Telugu, Kannada and Hindi in it. The song had become quite popular in south during that time.

The cast of the film was P.Bhanumathy, Ranjan, Nagendra Rao, J.S.Kashyap, Maya Banerjee, B.K.Kalla, Narayan Rao etc etc. The story of the film was….

Mahendra and Martand are rival kings. When Mahendra’s wife gives birth to conjoined twins, Dr. Nanji separates them skillfully. In a surprise attack, Martand and his men set fire to Mahendra’s fort thinking that the entire Mahendra clan perishes. But the good doctor has taken the babies to the safety of his house. And thereafter the elder twin Vijay grows up in the city, while the younger twin Vikram is brought up in the forest by the loyal Maruti.

When they are 25 years old, the doctor sends for them and introduces them to each other and makes them aware of their history. The twins swear to avenge the dastardly killing of their father and restore the glory of their kingdom. Meanwhile, Vijay saves the beautiful Ranjana from the aging yet lust-filled Martand and his men. Vijay and Ranjana fall in love in due course.

Problems arise between the brothers in the forest, as Vikram too falls for Ranjana. And being the younger of the conjoined twins, Vikram aches with frustrating feelings of physical desire whenever Vijay and Ranjana are together. Not wanting to be the cause for the brothers turning against each other and in order to enable them to reach their avowed objective without further distraction, Ranjana leaves Vijay in the forest, only to fall straight into the clutches of Martand. The rescue of Ranjana, and Martand getting his retribution form rest of the exciting tale.

Editor’s note-While most words in Bangla, Punjabi and Gujarati have been noted down with reasonable accuracy, Tamil words are required to be deciphered. I request our Tamil language experts to help fill in the Tamil lyrics. Readers are also requested to suggest corrections/ help fill in the words wherever applicable in the lyrics, and especially in the non Hindi lyrics.

“Nakhre”(1951) was produced by Mohanlal Wahai and directed by Surya Kumar for Paro Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Geeta Bali, Nasir Khan, Jeewan, David, Heera Sawant, Vijaya, Badri Prasad, Ramesh, Laxmanrao, M S Pathak, Paro etc in it.

There were ten songs in this movie that were sung by eight singers and penned by four lyricists. Four songs from the movie has been discussed in the blog.Here is the fifth song from “Nakhre”(1951) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

The song sounds like a nautanki song, where the dancer wants to go to the “mela” (fair). No, not to get lost but to meet her beloved there. The beloved in not some outsider, but her husband. 😉 Yes, she wants to get away from the stifling living conditions at her household where her mother in law make her do household jobs and she is unable to find time to be with her husband. Very cute but realistic scenarios for Indian women not only those days but even today.

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.

Lyrics

ae ji main to odh chunariya

o jo more baanke sanwariya

milna akele mein

saas mori tyohaar ke din bhi
haaye gobar thhapwaaye
chakki choolha chauka bartan
aur bhaandi ghiswaaye
o ji mera ji ghabraaye
o o
mera ji ghabraaye
jhoothhe jhamele mein
ae ji main to odh chunariya
aayi hoon mele mein

ik paise mein bindiya khareedi
aur do paise mein surma
ae ji paani puri khaayi udhaar
aur mufat mein khaaya korma
o ji phir paan khareeda
o o
phir paan khareeda
khote adhele mein
ae ji main to odh chunariya
aayi hoon mele mein

motariya mein kabhi na baithhoon
jiya mora ghabraaye
tamtam mein baithoon to kamariya
sau sau bal kha jaaye
o o o o
o o
kamariya sau sau bal kha jaaye
kamariya
hoye hoye hoye hoye
sau sau bal kha jaaye

ae ji main to sair karungi
o o o
main to sair karoongi
baith ke thele mein
ae ji main to odh chunariya
aayi hoon mele mein
