This is a lovely foot tapping song from the film Saanwaria-49. It is sung by Shamshad Begam and Chitalkar, with music composed by C.Ramchandra himself.

1949 was an exceptional year in which probably the maximum number of musical films were released. It was as if all the composers and singers were in their full bloom this year. Just read these names of films and you will realise what must be the condition of the music lovers with this kind of deluge of everlasting memorable songs.

Aiye, Andaz, Badi Bahen, Barsat, Baazaar, Chakori, Chandni Raat, Dillagi, Dulari, Ek thi ladki, Girls school, jeet, Ladli, Lahore, Mahal, Namoona, Parda, Patanga, Rimjhim, Sanwaria, Shabnam, Shair, Sunehre Din.

C.Ramchandra and Naushad were in fierce competition for the No. 1 position. At least in 1949, Naushad won hands down with 4 musical films ( 2 silver jubilee and 1 Golden Jubilee) like Andaz, Chandni Raat, Dulari and Dillagi. Composer Vinod made his presence felt with Lara Lappa song and other songs of Ek thi ladki. Anil Biswas, Khemchand Prakash, Husnlal Bhagatram, Hansraj Behl, Shyamsunder and others too chipped in with their everlasting Gems.

By 1949, C.Ramchandra had settled down well in Filmistan. Every film he made in Filmistan- Safar, Leela, Saajan, Shehnai, Nadiya ke paar, Sanwaria, Samadhi and Sargam was a musical hit. Financially he was well off. His family life had some ups and downs. His relationship with Lata was getting cemented.

His first film with Filmistan was Safar-46. The director of the film was Bibhuti Mitra. Mitra had a nasty habit of interfering in the Music Director’s work. C.Ramchaqndra did not like it. But because of Shashdhar Mukherjee, he kept quiet. Luckily, halfway through the film, Mitra left and went away to Calcutta.

In late 1950, when the work for the film Shabistan started, Bibhuti Mitra came back to Filmistan to direct this movie. The Music Director was C.Ramchandra. As expected, Mitra started interfering in film’s music. By now, C.Ramchandra was a well known and successful composer in great demand from producers. This time he did not tolerate Mitra’s interference. The matter went to S. Mukherjee. Mukherjee took Mitra’s side, as he had brought him back. C.Ramchandra decided to leave Filmistan. Mukherjee was shocked and tried to dissuade C Ramchandra from leaving, but C Ramchandra was firm. However he made a promise to Mukherjee that he would come back and work whenever Filmistan needed him. True to his word, C.Ramchandra did come back to do Anarkali-53 and Nastik-54 later on. The balance work of Shabistan was done by Madan Mohan.

There are occasions when Hindi film history students-like me- get frustrated. The frustration comes when certain matters do not seem to have a solution. For example, when you find that senior composers like Vithaldas Panchotiya and Master Fida Hussain make conflicting claims as to who gave music to film “Muflis Ashiq”-32. Was it Panchotia or Nagardas ? Frustration comes when you don’t get any information, from any sources, on Heroes like B. Nandrekar or Heroine like Veera. Frustration comes when you come across artistes with similar names without any means to differentiate between them, inspite of all efforts.

While doing this post I wanted to write about the actress Veera, but I did not have much information and Harish Raghuvanshi ji too drew a blank. A little information is available on Cineplot, but her Filmography is not complete there.

Veera was from a Parsi family. Her full name was Veera Ankaleshwaria. Obviously, her family came from Ankaleshwar,a small industrial town(now), in Gujarat. She started her career in films as a Heroine opposite nasir khan in film Mazdoor-1945. Then came Shikari-46 and later Eight days-46, both had Ashok kumar as the Hero. Both the films were from Filmistan. her last film as Heroine was Tohfa, opposite Rehman and Leela opposite Agha , both films from 1947. Then she stopped getting Heroine roles and shifted to side roles. In all she did 22 films.

Her other films were, Veena, Ziddi, Chanda ki Chandani- all 48, Sanwaria-49, Hamara Ghar and hamari beti- 1950, Hamari shaan, Ramjanma and Sagar-1951, Aasmaan, izzat, Moti mahal, Sanskar and Shin shinaki boobla boo-all1952, Dana Pani-53, Boot polish and Sheeshe ki deewar both 1954.

She married Mohsin Abdulla, who had worked in Bombay Talkies as a writer. He was the younger brother of actress Renuka ( Begum Mirza). After the marriage, both migrated to Pakistan in 1955. No news after that.

Film Sanwaria was directed by Nusrat A.Mansuri. I could not get any information about him except that he had directed 2 films earlier. Torpedo-41 and Soorat-47 in which he acted and also wrote 4 songs as a Lyricist.

The film had 10 songs. Today’s song will be the 5th song of the film to be covered here. This is a duet sung by Chitalkar and Shamshad begum. After this film, C.Ramchandra stopped using Shamshad as his lead singer as almost all songs in all his films went to Lata after 1949. However Shamshad sang one song in Samadhi and two songs in Niraala both in 1950. But after this there was no entry for Samshad. Similar actions were taken by Naushad and many other composers.

I am sure you will like today’s song. This is slightly different from the usual C Ramchandra style. Hoof-beat songs were made popular first by Naushad and then by O P Nayyar. Later on they became common.

Sometimes, things can’t get more rare than this. As we look for rare combination of artists, and especially singers, we come across combinations where two artists have worked together in a song, once or maybe twice in the entire history of Indian cinema. This song today, is one such song. It is a duet, rather I should correct myself, it is a trio of singers. There are two female voices, and one male voice. The male voice is not identified, even in the Geet Kosh listings. The female voices are Shamshad Begum and Hamida Bano. And the year is 1948.

The time was when the older generation of singers still ruled the roost. 1949 had still to come, and the singers of the category of Lata, Asha and Geeta still had to find their places in the top bracket. The singers of the prior years were the more sought after. Singers like Shamshad Begum, Khursheed, Hamida Bano, Zohra Bai, and yes, Parul Ghosh and Kanan Devi etc. Given their era, these names were the busy stars, and were well sought after.

As I checked the Geet Kosh listings, I find only four instances when Shamshad Begum and Hamida Bano have come together in performing a song. Two of these are plain duets, and in the other, they are accompanied by a third singer. As in this one. There is a male voice that accompanies the two ladies in this song, but that voice is not identified. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to kindly help to identify.

The 1948 film ‘Grihasthi’ has 8 songs. The music composition is by Ghulam Mohammed. Of the eight songs, six are penned by Wahid Qureshi, and the remaining two are written by Shakeel Badayuni. This song is by Shakeel Sb.

It is a fun, time pass type of song – a song about motor cars and their owners. And how the other people react to them. Not only that it is a very interesting give and take, but also captures the haughtiness (snootiness?) of the motor car owners. And mind you, we are being presented these thoughts from an era when owning a motor car itself was a rare thing.

But as I said, it is a fun song, and I am sure you will find yourself smiling at it. Enjoy.

Song – O Motor Waali Chhori, Dil Le Ja Chori Chori (Grahsthi) (1948) Singers – Shamshad Begum, Hamida Bano, Unidentified Male Voice, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Ghulam Mohammed

“Naazneen” (1951) was directed by N K Ziri (?) for All India Pictures. The movie had Nasir Khan, Madhubala, Pratima Devi, Cuckoo, Jayant, Agha, Chanchal, Ram Avtaar, Om Prakash etc in it.

Two songs from this movie has been discussed in the past. Here is the third song from “Naazneen”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Shamshhad Begam. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song which sounds like a dance song.

The Voice of Mukesh #69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

Today’s song is from the film Mast Qalandar-55. It is sung by Shamshad Begum, Rafi and Master Sonik alongwith chorus. The mukhada of the song ” Mast qalandar dama dam” is quite a misleading one, as it has nothing to do with famous Punjabi/Sindhi qawali Dama dam mast qalandar. The phrase has been used here to describe a carefree man. This seems to be a street dance, sung to entertain the onlookers.
