Today’s song is from the Film Sewa-1942.

The year 1942 was an year in which the Hindi film industry entered into its ‘ Teens”, from mid-year. By the time its ” Teen age” was over, it bloomed into its adulthood by beginning ” The Golden Period of Hindi film music” from the year 1949, with many musically enchanting films like Barsaat, Andaz, Badi Bahen, Bazaar, Dillagi, Ek this ladki, Dulari, Lahore and many more films.

Indian film industry has always been alive to the happenings in the country and reflects the national problems and important events in our films.1942 was an year when the II World War was on its peak and it had caused a severe food shortage in the world. Italy had made a silent film ‘Greed’ on this issue. Based on it, Mehboob Khan made a film , Roti’ in India. Mehboob was a socialist and a Nehruvian to the core and so his films like,Mother India or Son Of India were made on socialistic principles. In 1942,Ramchandra Thakur also directed one such film,’Gareeb’.

In India, the Congress had started its Quit India movement, but in our Film Industry it was a Quit studio movement. Many well known film artistes, directors, composers and other related staff moved over to new pastures. 1942, in a sense, became an overhauling of the Film industry with so much movement of people. The following activities changed the scenario to a great extent.

1. A group of disgruntled people in Bombay Talkies, comprising of Rai Bahadur Chunilal, Shashadhar Mukherjee, Ashok Kumar, Sawak Vachha and few of their followers left Bombay Talkies, after disagreements with Devika Rani and formed their own outfit – Filmistan.

2. Mehboob Khan separated from National studios and established his own Mehboob Productions. This was also the time when Mehboob and Anil Biswas separated from each other due to some differences.

3. Abdul Rasheed Kardar established his own Kardar studios.

4. V.Shantaram, along with his team left Prabhat- an institution which he established and made a famous one by his directorial contribution. He first joined Films division and then started his own Raj Kamal Kala Mandir.

5. Wadia Movietone split and the brothers separated. While JBH Wadia, the elder brother, wanted that their company should start making only Social films now, the younger Homi Wadia wanted to continue with Stunt and Action films. He started his own Basant Pictures. Wadia’s star performer Fearless Nadia went with Homi Wadia, whom she married a few years later.

6. Calcutta’s New Theatres started showing signs of disintegration and Debki Bose,P C Barua etc left the New Theatres. Debaki Bose made ‘ Apna Ghar’ in Bombay. K L Saigal left New Theatres to do films in Bombay . He did Ranjit’s’ Bhakta Surdas’ and ‘ Bhanwra’. He of course went back to Calcutta to do a few more films,before coming back to Bombay for Shahjehan and Pawana. He did not/could not go back to Calcutta,as he died after Parwana-47. Saigal, while recording the song “ Nainheen ko raah dikha” in Bhakta Surdas, did 14 retakes in recordings. His younger brother Mohan Saigal acted as Shri krishna in this film and he is heard saying” Surdas ji” in the song Nis Din barsat Nain hamare.

7. Composer Vasant Desai did his first independent film ” Shobha” as a Music Director.

8. C Ramchandra did his first Hindi film as a composer- Sukhi Jeevan.

9. Ninu Mujumdar became MD with the film Black Out.

10. Kamal Dasgupta started his Hindi film career with the film Jawab.

11. Lyricist Ramesh Gupta started with the film Awaz.

12. Lyricist Qamar Jalalabadi started with Zamindar.

13. Suraiya entered the Playback with songs in Nai Duniya and Sharda.

14. Hemant Kumar sang his first Hindi song in the film Meenakshi-42.

15. Manna Dey first sang a Hindi song in the film Tamanna.

16. Jagmohan Sursagar sang in the first Hindi film-Bhakta Kabir.

17. Nurjahan sang her first Hindi film songs in film Khandan-42, in Lahore.

18. Bharat Bhushan’s first film in a leading role was Bhakt Kabir.

19. Madhubala started as Baby Mumtaz in film Basant

From Lahore Dalsukh Pancholi repeated his magic with ‘ Khandaan’-42. This time it was Noorjehan who shook the industry with her songs under Ghulam Haider. Films like Bhakt Kabir,Bhakta Surdas, and Bharat Milap kept the Mythology/religious films in limelight. New Theatres,Prabhat,Bombay Talkies etc all brought excellent films in 1942. Barring Bhakta Surdas,Roti and Khandan,there was not much competition to Naushad’s Station Master-42 ,in music.Its music became quite popular and the film celebrated Silver Jubilee. Naushad tasted success for the first time in his career in 1942 and 2 of his 3 films in the year celebrated Silver Jubilees. The other film was Nai Duniya-42.

Let us take a look at some important films of 1942….

Film Barat had music by Ratanlal-brother of Khemchand Prakash and himself as Khemraj.

Film Basant- though it has the name of Pannalal Ghosh as MD, as per HFGK, all the songs were composed by Anil Biswas (because he was still under contract with National Studios) and Ghosh had only done Orchestration and background music.

Bhakta Kabir had music by Himangshu Dutt- the first title holder of “Sursagar”.

Bhakta Surdas- Gyan Dutt gave 15 hit songs of Saigal and Khursheed. In this film Khursheed sang equally well with Saigal.

Bharat Milap- First film in which Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth did the roles of Shri Ram and Seeta, which made them famous all over India.

Chauranghee- the only Hindi film for which Kazi nasrul islam gave music and wrote songs too. It was his debut film. Also Debut for Hanuman prasad Sharma as Md and S.Fazli as Director.

Dus Baje- Debut of Baby Shakuntala.

Iqrar- Last film of actress Madhuri (Beryl Classen). Master Vithal-a professional singer from Sholapur sang his only song in a Hindi film.( not the actor)

Jawab- all songs popular, especially kanan devi’s ” Ye duniya Toofan mail”.

Khandan- Entry of Nur jahan, from Lahore. All her songs are popular.

Muqabala- First Talkie film with double role of Heroine- Nadia. Babhubhai Mistri’s magic in trick scenes.

Nai Duniya- Suraiy’s first song in Hindi film.

Roti- Begum Akhtar’s role and 6 songs.

Savera- First film of Arun Ahuja and Nirmala Devi.

Sharada- Naushad gives good songs.

Station Master- Hit film with songs.

Zamindar- Shanta Apte goes to Lahore all the way

All in all, the year 1942 was an eventful year for the industry. Indian audiences enjoyed a variety of Genres in film offerings and a feast of Naushad’s songs, Bhajans and New artistes.

Film Sewa-1942 was a social film made by Ashok pictures. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai – a director from the silent era, who was famous for directing mainly B grade mythological films and occasionally a few social films The Lyricist was J C Kapur and the music was by S N Tripathi (11 songs) and Biri singh Dukha (2 songs). The film cast had Zahoor raja, Radharani, Shanta, A. Kabuli, Hadi, Shyamsundar, Anwari and few others.

Abdul Rehman Kabuli was from Afghanistan. An expert stage artiste, he had his own Drama Company-Elphinstone Theatre Company in Bombay. He sold the company, went to Calcutta and joined Madon Theatres/studios as an actor and director. He first acted in Shirin Farhad-31, Indrasabha-32,Guluru Zarina-32, Zahri saanp-33 etc etc, in all 40 films, both at Calcutta and Bombay, in the early era. Further he directed 12 films, starting with Shravan Kumar-32 up to Veer Bala-38. He wrote 55 songs in 6 films and sang 15 songs in 7 films. After Partition, he returned to his native country.

There is one odd name in the cast of this film- Hadi. His full name was S.M.Mohammad Hadi. He was also known as Master Hadi, due to his knowledge of Music and singing. In early Talkie films, he gave music to films, singly and with other composers and also sang songs. But mainly, he was an actor from the Silent era.
No wonder he was seen in some films of the First year of Talkie films of 1931, like Draupadi, in which he had played the role of Shakuni. He sang 3 songs also. He was seen in other films like Abu hasan-31, and Daulat ka Nasha-31( he was one of the MDs). His acting in saubhagya Sundari-33 and Sulochana -33 was much appreciated. He is estimated to have acted in about 40 films till 1947.

He sang 21 songs in 9 films- Draupadi-31, Daulat ka nasha-31, Anangsena-31, Madhuri-32, Aaj Kal-34, Stree Dharma-35, Karvaan-E-Husn-35, Bombshell-35 and Birbal ki Beti-35.

Here is a song sung by Zahoor Raja, unknown male and female voices and Chorus. From the lyrics of the songs it looks like that the film dealt with some labour problem. The song is provided by Abhay Jain ji from US and uploaded by Sadanand Kamath ji. Thanks to both.

The name of Chimanlal Trivedi, the producer-director may not ring bell in the minds of most of the admirers of old Hindi films. In Mumbai, he was the contemporary of well-known producer-directors like Chandulal Shah, A R Kardar, Mehboob Khan, V Shantaram etc in the 1940s.

After working as a writer in Sagar Movietone, in 1937, he set up a film production company, CIRCO (Cine Industries and Recording Company Ltd.) with the help of some Bombay-based shareholders as a public limited company in association with New Theatres. He became the Managing Director of CIRCO. The arrangement was that films would be produced by New Theatres’ in Kolkata with their artists and the financing/marketing of the films would be done by CIRCO in Mumbai. Both of them would share the profit. In 1939, CIRCO took upon itself the production of films in Mumbai with ‘Laxmi’ (1940).

Sometime in 1940, Chimanlal Trivedi was under cloud as there was a court case against him for mismanagement of funds of CIRCO. He had resiged as Managing Director of CIRCO in April 1941. I felt that perhaps this court case may have something to do with Chimanlal Trivedi leaving CIRCO to set up a new film production company, Laxmi Productions. After intense searches on the internet, I got a reference to CIRCO court case in indiankanoon. It was an 8-page judgement delivered on November 24, 1941 by Bombay High Court. The gist of the court case is as under:

A shareholder of CIRCO filed a petition in Bombay High Court against Chimanlal Trivedi, the managing director for the mismanagement of funds and to wind up CIRCO as insolvent based on its financial statements for the year ended March 1940. The court did not find any evidence against Chimanlal Trivedi of mismanagement of fund of CIRCO. As regards declaring the CIRCO insolvent, the Company put the arguments that there were 3 films under productions – ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942, directed by Debki Bose), ‘Nai Duniya’ (1942, directed by A R Kardar) and ’Mahatma Vidur’ (1943, directed by P Y Altekar). As per the estimates, CIRCO was expected to earn a profit of Rs. 11 lakhs after the release of these three films taking into account the star value of the main actors and the eminent directors. The petitioner argued that these three films can as well run into losses.

The court held the view that it cannot declare a company insolvent merely based on the speculation that there could be losses after the release of the films. None of the creditors of the CIRCO and a majority of the shareholders have supported the petition for winding up. The court dismissed the petition with cost.

One of the interesting example of the mismanagement of funds of CIRCO was that Shanta Apte was paid Rs,90000/- for working as heroine in a single film which, according to the petitioner, was unreasonably high. The film was not even completed when the matter was under discussion in the court. CIRCO responded by revealing that the amount was paid to Shanta Apte as ‘waiting salary’ for the unexpired period of her contract with Prabhat Film Company. If the CIRCO had not done so, several film producers would have grabbed the opportunity to secure her services for their future film productions.

Another bone of contention between the petitioner and the company was the way the profit was measured in the film industry. CIRCO had drawn the profit and loss account with realizable revenue from film distributors and expected revenue from the films under production for which distribution rights had been contracted. The petitioner found this practice not in keeping with the good accounting principles as this accounting system hides the true financial position of the company.

On the other hand, CIRCO maintained that it followed the convention among the film production companies in drawing its profit and loss account. More often, there were long gap between making of a film and releasing it. During the making of the films, a good amount of money was spent while the income from films would accrue only after their releases and that too, over a period of time. During the intervening period, the company will have to show losses in its profit and loss account. Hence an estimate of revenue of the company was made for the films under production based on the commitment by the film distributors and also the likely response from the film audience based on the star value.

If all the film production companies of that time drew their profit and loss account based on the estimated future profit, it amounts to masking their true financial position. Probably, this type of ‘accounting jugglery’ made some of the producers to float multiple film production companies after closing the earlier ones. Chimanlal Trivedi was no exception as after 1951, he had floated film production companies in different names.

Though the court verdict came in favour of Chimanlal Trivedi and the Company, this was short-lived as CIRCO went into liquidation in 1942. So, the apprehension of a shareholder who had filed the petition in the court about the mismanagement of funds turned out to be correct even though the Bombay High Court had dismissed his petition. It is interesting to note that Chimanlal Trivedil had hired A R Kardar to direct ‘Swami’ (1941) and ‘Nai Duniya’ (1942) under CIRCO banner. After the liquidation of CIRCO, it was A R Kardar who bought CIRCO’s studio at Parel for Kardar Productions.

Chimanlal Trivedi seems to have departed from the usual practice of hiring the actors and crew as per the studio system. It is said that he would first plan the film project and then hire the actors and crew as per the requirements of the new film. Often, he would select the most popular lead actors and directors as per their box office success and pay them in lumpsum for the film which would often work out much higher than what actors would have got under the studio system. It was reported in Filmindia magazine that Chimanlal Trivedi’s ‘highjacking’ of star actors and directors from some of the well known film production companies of that time affected their shooting schedules for the films under productions.

For ‘Tamanna’ (1942), the maiden film under Laxmi Productions, Chimanlal Trivedi hired Leela Desai, one of the successful actresses of New Theatres along with Jairaj with 7 crew members from Bengal which included Phani Majumdar as director, K C Dey as actor-music director, Bibhuti Laha as Cinematographer and Robin Chatterjee as Sound Recordist. It was Leela Desai’s maiden film in Mumbai. It is said that his financial offer to Leela Desai was so attractive vis-à-vis her salary in New Theatre that she accepted the offer.

Chimanlal Trivedi produced around 45 films during 1940-1960. Surprisingly, even with high-end star actors and eminent directors, especially in 1940s when he produced 28 films, there was not a single film which can be tagged as an outstadning film under his banners. In the 1950s, most of his films he produced were of ‘B’ Grade.

‘Sharaafat’ (1943) was third film with Leela Desai-Chimanlal Trivedi combination as actor and producer, respectively under the banner of Laxmi Productions. The star cast included Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Jagdish Sethi, Agha, Moti, Ghulam Rasool, S L Puri etc. The film had 9 songs which were set to music by Ashok Ghosh. Lyricist for all the songs is unknown.

I am presenting the first song, ‘aayi aayi re maalan singapur se’ from the film to appear on the Blog. HFGK is silent on the singers of the song. But it is apparent that the voices in the song are that of Amirbai Karnataki and Pahadi Sanyal with an unknown female voice in between. At the outset, the song appears to be ‘sales pitch’ but after the completion of the song, a long musical orchestration gives an impression of a stage song.

With this song, ‘Sharaafat’ (1943) makes its debut on the Blog.

Today’s song is from a very old film-Do Deewane-1936. The film was made by Sagar Movietone. It was directed by Chimanlal Luhar and the music was by Pransukh Nayak.

The film was a Comedy film. Originally made in Gujarati as ” Be kharab jan “, it was based on a play written by the famous Literary figure of Gujarat- Kanhaiyalal Munshi ( 30-12-1887 to 8-2-1971 ). He was an activist in Independence struggle, a Politician ( Home Minister and Governor), a writer and an educationist (founded Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan). Munshi had dabbled in film industry and many Gujarati and Hindi films were made on his plays and stories in almost every decade.

All the 11 songs of the film were written by the famous Gujarati poet ” Raskavi ” Raghunath Bramhabhatt. He was born on 13-12-1892. He was a famous Gujarati poet and also a popular playwright. He was aptly called ‘Rasakavi’ or ‘Poet of rasa’. He began his career by writing erotic poems that became very popular. His plays mainly tackled mythological and historical subjects, such as Buddhadev i.e. ‘The God Buddha’, Sringi rishi i.e. ‘Mountain Sage’, Ajatsatru, Saraswatichandra, Sneh mudra i.e. ‘Ring of Affection’. He followed Sanskrit dramaturgy i.e. a novelty when Shakespearean adaptations ruled the Gujarati stage. His adaptations of Nanalal Kavi’s verse plays and Govardhanram’s novel, Saraswatichandra, were highly appreciated by audiences. He is accepted in literary circles as a major dramatist, a rare recognition for a writer of the old professional theatre. His autobiography Smaran manjari i.e. ‘Cluster of Memories’ in 1955 traces the history of Gujarati theatre over three decades beginning from 1910.

Darpana’s productions of his play Kalyan rajya i.e. ‘Benevolent Kingdom’ in 1962 points to his ability to attract the experimental theatre.Raghunath Brahmbhatt died on 11-7-1983. He wrote lyrics for just 6 Hindi films- Do deewane-36, Baaraat-42, Mera Gaon-42, Ashirwad-43, Bhakta Bilwamangal-48 and Roop sundari-49.

The film cast was Motilal, Shobhana Samarth, Yakub, Aruna Devi, Sankata Prasad, Bhudo Advani and others. The name of Aruna Devi may be a new one for many. She started acting in films with film Village Girl-36. The same year, she also acted in Mard ka Bachha, Lagna Bandhan,Do Deewane and Deccan Queen ( she did a double role in this film. She also sang 2 songs in this film.) and in 1938 she acted in her last film Asha-38. After this she got married to a businessman Mr. Nanavati and settled in England- ending her very short career as an actress.

Do Deewane was the first film in which Motilal and Shobhana Samarth acted together. In later life, however, besides acting, they lived a life together also in real life. The film was directed by Chimanblal Luhar.

The Director CHIMANLAL MULJIBHOY LUHAR ( 1901-1948) was a Chemistry graduate from Bombay University. He started writing as a critic and author in journals like Beesvin sadee, Navchetan and Bombay Chronicle. He joined film line as a lab Assistant in Kohinoor studios in early 20s. Soon he became a noted cameraman for several documentaries, with K.D.Brothers, Bombay,under a British cameraman of Prince of Wales’ official entourage. After a brief stint at Rajkot with Saurashtra Films and a longer one at Krishna Films-where he shot 20 films, he joined Sharada Studios with ‘Dagabaz Duniya-1926 and several stunt films by Master Vithal. He turned a producer for a few stunt films. Later he was a partner in Sharda films and a Director with Sagar Movietone(1934-1940). From 1941 to 46 he worked for Prakash Pictures. He directed Sassi Punnu-32,Silver King-35 Talash-E-haq (first film of Nargis, made by Jaddanbai)-35, Do deewane, Kharab Jaan, Capt. Kirtikumar, Dynamite, Kaun kisika, Sewa Samaj, Saubhagya, Darshan, Station master, School Master, Uss paar and Bindiya. He died at the young age of 47 years,in 1948. He had established his own production outfit ‘Sun Art Pictures’ in 1943, but he made only 3 films with it -School Master-43, Uss Paar-44 and Bindiya-46, before he died, after a prolonged illness.

FILMOGRAPHY: 1932: Sassi Punnu; 1935: Silver King; Talash-e-Haq; 1936: Do Diwane/Be Kharab Jan; 1937: Captain Kirti Kumar; 1938: Dynamite; 1939: Kaun Kisika; Seva Samaj; 1940: Saubhagya; 1941: Darshan; 1942: Station Master; 1943: School Master; 1944: Us Paar; 1946: Bindiya.

Film Do Deewane took a satirical look at the practice in society, the character of a father, forcing his daughter into a marriage for monetary incentive, was at the heart of this film. The daughter runs away from home and meets a lot of people. In his original stage drama, Munshi had brought different people speaking in different languages- creating kind of a humour, however in the Hindi film version it was only Hindi language spoken by different people…still creating laughs by their grammar and pronunciation.

While doing the shooting, Motilal was quite hesitant and shy in love scenes. There was a scene in which he was supposed to take the Heroine in his arms. But even after trying several times Motilal could not do it. Fed up of waiting for long, it was Shobhana who jerked him towards her and embraced him ! Imagine who must have blushed in this scene !!

In another scene, Shobhana is sitting on a swing. Motilal had to come from behind and push the swing to frighten her.While doing the rehearsal of this scene, Motilal gave a hard push to the swing to look realistic. As a result Shobhana not only fell off the swing but promptly became unconscious also. It was then that Motilal came to know that she was pregnant. Later on 4-6-1936, Shobhana gave birth to Nutan !

The story of the film was the usual conflict between Generation thinkings and values. Since the time unknown, newer Generations have always felt that the older people were not keeping up with current times. This was so 100 years ago and is very much true even today. The film which was made about 80 years ago tried to discuss this conflict, cinematically. Millionaire Ramdas wants to marry his daughter as per his choice. Not agreeing to this daughter Miss Rambha (Shobhana Samarth) runs away from home and in her quest of peace, meets Dr. Mohanlal (Motilal). They fall in love. At the end it is revealed that Mohanlal was the original choice of her father. So, all is well.

The film had subplots to create comic situations. However, as per the review of the film posted in Film India magazine, the comedy did not induce most people in the audience to laugh and acting of most actors was mediocre. The technical side was much appreciated. Anyway, Baburao Patel of Film India magazine rarely appreciated or had good words for any film, so nothing new in this review also.

There were 11 songs in the film. The composer was Pransukh Nayak, who started his career with film Sati Sone-33 and ended with film Kulvadhu-37, giving music to 27 films in between this period and composed 293 songs.

In Sagar Movietone, many actors, actresses, directors and technicians got first opportunity or got opportunity to develop their existing careers. The Regular artistes of Sagar Movietone were called ” The Jewels of Sagar “. They included Motilal, Surendra, Kumar, Charlie, Yakub, Bhudo Advani, Sh. Mukhtar, Kanhaiyalal, Sankata Prasad, V H Desai, Sabita Devi, Bibbo, Waheedan Bai, Jyoti, Maya Banerjee, Nalini Jaywant, Ezra Mir, Ramchandra Thakur, mehboob, Sarvottam Badami, Zia Sarhadi, Faredoon Irani, Kaushik Dholabhai and Anil Biswas.

Today’s song is a fun song. From the lyrics, it sounds like a group of freshly graduated Doctors. The song has many medical terms and mentions of Medical instruments etc. This is a Chorus song. With this song, film Do Deewane makes its Debut on the Blog.

( I am thankful to the book ” Sagar Movietone”, by Biren kothari ji for information used herein.)
