“Laaj”(1946) was directed by Shahzada Ayyaz, Saiyyad Munawwar H Qasim for Ayyaz Productions, Bombay. This social movie had Shamim, Radharani, Ramesh, H Prakash, Rajan, Rehana, Gadagkar, Master Nisar, Madhurika, Mumtaz, Moti etc in it.

The movie had ten extremely rare songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Laaj”(1946) to appear in the blog. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Radharani, but the voice is clearly that of Shamshad Begam. So the HFGK entry for this song needs correction.

Saghar Nizami is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ramchandra Pal.

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. Perhaps Radharani was the actress who lip synced the song, but we cannot be sure.

With this song, “Laaj” (1946) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Kya saath hamaara aur unka (Laaj)(1946) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Saghar Nizaami, MD-Ramchandra Pal

Lyrics

kya saath hamaara aur unka
kya saath hamaara aur unka
masroor hain wo
ranjoor hain hum
go raas nahin aata jeena
jeene ke liye majboor hain hum

khud apni kahaani keh na sake
ae ae
aur unka fasaana sun na sake
dekho to hamaari majboori
dil se kitne majboor hain hum

dil par jo qayaamat beet gayi
dil par jo qayaamat beet gayi
bedard zamaana kya jaane
jo bojh uthhaaya thha hamne
us bojh se ab tak choor hain hum

wo bhed jo duniya paa na saki
wo bhed jo duniya paa na saki
wo raaz jise ham keh na sake
duniya se nahin lekin tumse
keh dene par majboor hain hum

in khaana-badoshon par jaane aen
aankhon se dhalak kar kya beete
gurbat mein museebat ke aansoo
peene ke liye majboor hain hum
kya saath hamaara aur unka
masroor hain wo
ranjoor hain hum

jo hamen apna banaaya

mere man ko churaaya

After an enforced hiatus of over a month, I am back again with yet another song from the yore.

During this period, I acutely realised how much this Blog, its people, Hindi old films and songs had become a part of my life and I missed all this. When I was younger and ran after my career, the same feeling used to be there. Now of course, there are deadlines,commitments,accountability and work satisfaction, but of different kind. Equally important, nevertheless. I was overwhelmed with the good wishes and prayers for me from friends during this period. God is Great and everything fitted in place finally and I am once again ready to pour my heart here in discussing songs, people and films. Thanks to all.

Today’s song is from a film called Gopinath-48. This film is known to many, only for the original song and tune, used by Raj Kapoor in his film ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram ‘-78 in the song “Yashomati maiyya se poochhe Nandlala, Radha kyun gori, main kyun kaala “.

But there is much more to this film than only this song.

The film belongs to the Bengali tradition of melodramas. The main Heroine Tripti Mitra has given a remarkable performance. In shifting the tragedy from Devdas type male anxiety for a woman’s condition, the film chronicles how women get caught in the traditional environment. Mahesh Kaul, who wrote the story, screen play and dialogues, besides directing it, picked a delicate subject and handled it skilfully. He also acted in this film in the role of a movie director.

This was Raj Kapoor’s first major appearance on screen, before he became a legend later on. He excelled as an actor here. The film ends with an unusual scene.

When the film was released, it was hailed by critics as a work of art, much ahead of its time. It was creditable for Mahesh Kaul to have made this film, when the Indian Cinema was yet to become an adult. No wonder, the Government of India has preserved a print of Gopinath-48 in its National Film Archives for posterity. The acting of Raj Kapoor confirmed, his greatness would have matched any actor in the world, only if he had not wasted his talent in imitating Chaplin. This is my personal opinion.

There were two Heroines. One was Tripti Mitra, a big name in Bangla films and stage movement. She acted in only 3 Hindi movies. Gopinath-48, Dharati ke Lal-46 and Munna-54. Munna was a sequel to Dharati Ke Lal- both films directed by K.A.Abbas.

Smt. TRIPTI MITRA, née Tripti Bhaduri (Born 25 October 1925 – Died 24 May 1989), popular Indian Actress of Bengali Theatre and Films. She was the wife of Sombhu Mitra, noted Theatre & Film Director, with whom she co-founded pioneering theatre group Bohurupee in 1948. She has acted in films like Jukti Takko Aar Gappo and Dharti Ke Lal.

She was awarded Padma Shri and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award, the highest Indian recognition given to practicing artists, given by Sangeet Natak Akademi, India’s National Academy for Music, Dance and Drama.

Tripti Mitra was born in Dinajpur (British India) on 25 October 1925. Her father was Ashutosh Bhaduri and mother was Shailabala Debi. In Dinajpur Minor School she studied up to class six, then she came to Kolkata and got admission in Pyaricharan School. After passing Higher Secondary Examination from that school, she got admission in Ashutosh College. But she could not complete her studies since she got a job. She married Sombhu Mitra in December, 1945. She has a daughter Shaoli Mitra, who is also an actress and director.

Tripti Mitra had been acting in theatre since her teens. She first acted in her cousin Bijon Bhattacharya’s play Agun (Fire) in 1943. After watching her stage performance in noted IPTA play, Nabanna (Harvest) based on Bengal famine of 1943, director Khwaja Ahmad Abbas took her to Bombay to act in Gana Natya Sangha’s film Dharti Ke Lal in 1943, partly based on the play. Her first Bengali film was Pathik in 1953, the film was directed by Debaki Kumar Basu. She also acted in Ritwik Ghatak’s last film, Jukti Takko Aar Gappo (1974).

In 1948, Shombhu and Tripti Mitra founded their own theatre group named Bohurupee. She acted in innumerable plays mostly along with her husband Sombhu Mitra,a colossus in the field of theatre, to become one of the most legendary beings of Bengali theatre, most famous for her role as Nandini, the protagonist of Rabindranath Tagore’s Rakta Karabi. She also acted in Jago Hua Savera, a 1959 Urdu movie produced in Dhaka, East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), based on a Manik Bandopadhya’s classic novel Padma Nadir Majhi. Tripti Mitra died on 24 May 1989.

The second Heroine was Latika. In the year 2014, I got in touch with Ms. Sindy Bell, daughter of Latika and a resident of London, U.K. Sindy was kind enough to provide me a brief note on her Biography. Latika had acted only in 13 films from 1944 to 1948.

” Latika was born 13th October, 1924 in Darjeeling. Her Tibetan name was Hungu-Lamou. Her mother was Tibetan. Her father was an Australian who adopted Buddhism, living in India as a race horse trainer for the Maharajas. He died when Latika was still very young leaving her with a newly born brother. As a child, Latika was sent to the Kalimpong girl’s orphanage also called ‘The Homes’ for her education by her mother and new step-father until she was 16. Her mother had four more children, her half-brothers and sisters.

The Homes (one for girls, one for boys) were founded by a Scottish missionary, so as a child, Latika was christened Agnes and this is the name she uses in England. Her mother was Buddhist, her step-father, an Anglo-Indian by the name of Webber, was a Protestant but Buddhism was the prevalent faith among her surrounding family of aunties and uncles in Darjeeling.

Latika’s step-father was an engineer who built bridges and due to his work, when she was a teenager, they moved to Mumbai. It was there that Latika made friends with a neighbour who was a kathak dancer and actress. She was invited to visit the Minerva film studios and was there spotted by the director Sohrab Modi and offered the opportunity to act. This was where she was given the stage name Latika, which she is still called by friends and family in India to this day.

In those days, all the scripts were in Urdu which she read beautifully and also learnt kathak dancing. I’m sure you already know the 12 films Latika acted in from the mid 1940’s to early 1950’s, in particular the film Gopinath with Raj Kapoor (1948), where she played the ‘femme fatale’ and her lovely dance sequence in Jugnu (1947).

Latika had always had a respect and interest in holy writings. It was during this period that she met a Jehovah’s Witness who was able to explain the bible, not as a church book, but as holy writings, it’s answers to the ‘big’ questions we all ask and it’s promised blessings. It satisfied all of Latika’s questions about life, so she became a Jehovah’s Witness.

It was while as an actress she met and eventually became friends with Gope at the studios. To this day, Latika says he was the kindest, most compassionate man she ever met. They married and, at Gope’s request, Latika retired from the film industry.

Latika did introduce Gope to the bible. He would read by himself (or as my mother would say, ‘exclaim in delight!’), passages from it, early mornings on the verandah before work. She said he was particularly taken with the accounts of Jesus and how tenderly he treated people. To her surprise, of his own volition, he too become a Jehovah’s Witness.

Gope had a large house in Juhu which also came to house all Latika’s family. When we saw it, it had became a hotel but I’m not sure what has happened to it now.

Before Gope’s death, they had two sons, Gope Jr, and Lalith. When Gope suddenly and unexpectedly died, when the boys were three and five, mum decided to join her siblings who had earlier migrated to the UK. I came from her second marriage.

Latika is still alive and very well and living in the UK. She is in her 90th year, still beautiful. My niece’s second name is Latika and Gope Jr’s two sons bear the (second) name of Gope also. Latika has a big family with grand-children and great grand-children, all from Gope’s lineage. ”

On 25-9-2012, I had written this review of Gopinath-48, in this Blog–

GOPINATH-1948 was a Shanti lok Chitra film.It was produced and Directed by Mahesh Kaul, who not only wrote its story,screenplay and dialogues,but also acted in it.

The music was by Ninu Muzumdar and lyrics by Ram murthy Chaturvedi.There were 9 songs in the film, including 2 Bhajans of Meerabai and Surdas each.

The cast was Raj Kapoor,Tripti Mitra,Latika,Randhir,Anwari Bai, Sachin Ghosh etc.

This was a story of Gopi (Tripti Mitra), who is an orphan in the house of Mohan (Raj Kapoor). She is abandoned by her only brother. Gopi loves Mohan, but Mohan loves Neela Devi, an actress (Latika).

Gopi is frustrated and is mad,when Mohan returns to her after getting fed up and disillusioned by Neela Devi.

I saw this movie in its IInd run in early 1950s, but I had my notes on this movie.

Although some critics had actually lauded Raj Kapoor’s performance in this film, I felt that Tripti had outclassed RK in this film.

There are in all 9 songs in the film. Today’s song is only the second song to be discussed here. All songs,videos and the film are available on YT. This song is sung by Shamshad Begum and chorus. This dance song is very melodious, with a lilting tune. You will enjoy it….


Song-Baali umar piyaa mor mor mor (Gopinath)(1948) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD-Ninu Majumdar
Chorus

Lyrics

baali umar piyaa mor mor mor
jiyaraa naa maane
haay jiyaraa naa maane
o o o
baali umar piyaa mor mor mor
jiyaraa naa maane

haay jiyaraa naa maane
o o o

jabse dekhaa hai tumhen aen aen aen
bas kho gaye hain ham kahin
naa tasalli hai
naa ji ko chain hai ae
ek dam kahin
chhaayi ghataa ghanghor ghor ghor
jiyaraa naa maane

haay jiyaraa naa maane
o o o
baali umar piyaa mor mor mor
jiyaraa naa maane

haay jiyaraa naa maane
o o o

par nahin
ud kar tumhaare paas jo aa jaayen ham
aa jaayen ham
aa jaayen ham

dil samajhtaa hi nahin
kyun kar ise samjhaayen ham
samjhaayen ham
samjhaayen ham

chhoot jaaye gham ke haathon se
jo nikle dam kahin
khaaq aisi zindagi par
tum kahin aur ham kahin
pi pi papihaa kare shor shor shor
jiyaraa naa maane

haay jiyaraa naa maane
o o o
baali umar piyaa mor mor mor
jiyaraa naa maane
haay jiyaraa naa maane

“Naqaab”(1955) was produced and directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Tasveeristaan. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Madhubala, Asha Mathur, Ajit, Heera Lal, Yashodhara Katju, Maruti etc. in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a club dance song/ mujra song to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar (Naqaab)(1955) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar
zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
roz roz na aayegi ye rangeen bahaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

angdaaiyaan le le kar hai raat ki raani aayi
angdaaiyaan le le kar hai raat ki raani aayi
is chaand se mukhde par zulfon ki ghata hai chhaayi
kar ulfat ka ikraar
mere baanke dildaar
ye duniya hai din chaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

matwaale jhoom le
o mastaane jhoom le
matwaale jhoom le
o mastaane jhoom le
ulfat ki shama ke o parwaane jhoom le
ulfat ki shama ke o parwaane jhoom le

ye mast nazar hai tere liye
ye dil ye jigar hai tere liye
kaali zulfen gora mukhda
ye shaam o sahar hai tere liye
kar ulfat ka ikraar mere baanke dildaar
ye duniya hai din chaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
roz roz na aayegi ye rangeen bahaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar
