#the Decade of Sixties – 1961 – 1970 #

#A tribute to Jani Babu Qawwal-Remembrance Day 28th Jan’2023 #
—————————————————————————————-

As the title of this post suggests this post is in ‘Remembrance of the great Qawwal – Jani Babu Qawwal.

We are paying a belated tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ which was on 28th January.

I had in my earlier posts in the series of ‘Qawwalis from the Seventies’ mentioned that I grow up hearing these names for ‘singing Qawwalis’, Jani Babu, Shakila Bano Bhopali, Aziz Nazan and Shankar-Shambhu in my childhood days.

I vaguely remember to have attended one such program with my father when I was a child. And, when I get associated with this blog, I was always eager to read about these artistes. I have a big nostalgia with this ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’ song from ‘Roti Kapada Aur Makaan-1974’ and the voice of Jani Babu in it (in fact voices of all in this song). During recent years I was looking for detailed information about his biography and career but could not get to know much about him.

Then I came across his Qawwalis uploaded on ‘YouTube’ by a person in Dhamangaon-Amravati (Maharashtra). I was in Kenya then. In fact, I even spoked to this person on phone but could not get much information or details. I also contacted one senior person in the WhatsApp group from Nagpur and he helped me with a brief write-up. About a couple of days back when I was just going through my book collection, I find this book ‘Swaron Ki Yatra’ (Hindi Film Gaayaki ka Safar). When I checked this book, I find a detailed two-page article on Jani Babu Qawwal. Using this information, I am presenting a brief about Jani Babu as given below.

Jani Babu Qawwal was born as Syed Jaan Muhammad at Hinganghat (a big city in District Wardha, near Nagpur Maharashtra). Details of his date of birth are not available so far.

He mastered in singing Qawwalis at a very young age. He started taking lessons in classical music and Qawwalis from Ustad Mohammad Khan Shamshiry when he was seven years old only. After that he came to Jalgaon (Maharashtra) and took lessons in music from Abdul Rehman Kaanchwaale. Later he came to Bombay (now Mumbai).

In those years Qawwalis were played like ‘kirtans’ in social gatherings. Jaani Babu wanted Qawwalis to be more entertaining with easily understandable language for common people. So, he gave Qawwalis a simple texture, and a new dimension to Qawwalis, like Qawwalis on ‘husn aur ishq’, ‘sawaal-jawaab’ etc. Many film personalities showed interest in his works and motivated him in his efforts to make ‘Qawwalis’ more entertaining. He also got a major support from Shakila Bano Bhopali. They jointly entertained people for years together thereafter. Their concerts always run to packed houses and even the tickets for their concerts used to be sold in ‘black’.

Jaani Babu’s first film song, a Qawwali from the movie -‘Jungle Princess’ – came in 1958 with Shakila Bano Bhopali only. It was ‘adaayen teer hain andaaz barchhi bhaale hain’ which was picturized on Jaani Babu and Shakila Bano Bhopali. Playback for Shakila Bano Bhopali was given by Mubarak Begum. This is said to be the first qawwali of ‘men vs. women’ competition and is considered a ‘modern qawwali’ well ahead of its time as it did contain ‘English words’ into its lyrics as well.

After ‘Jungle Princess’ Jaani Babu’s Qawwalis appeared in ‘Behram Daaku-1959’, ‘Aalamaara ki Beti’, ‘Choron Ki Baaraat’, ‘Diler Haseena’ (all from 1960), ‘Black Shadow’ (1961), ‘Magic Box-1963’, ‘Birju Ustaad’(1964), ‘Chaar Darvesh’(1964), ‘Magic Carpet’(1964), ‘Rustom-E-Rome’(1964), ‘Accident’(1965), ‘Black Arrow’(1965), ‘Chhupa Rustom’(1965), ‘Son of Hatimtai’(1965), ‘Sakhi Lootera’(1969), ‘Truck Driver’(1970), ‘Mere Ghareeb Nawaaz’(1973),
In the movie ‘Son of Hatimtai’ he sang with Mohd Rafi. His qawwali – from ‘Sakhi Lootera’ (meethhi baaton mein na inki aana kabhi) also became very popular then.

In 1974 his voice was again very well appreciated by all, in the qawwali ‘mehangaayi maar gayi’ (for me this song is pure nostalgia) (it stood at no.1 in the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1975).
There after Jani Babu’s voice featured in ‘Shankar-Shambhu-1976’, ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’ (raat abhi baaki hai, baat abhi baaki hai’ (again a pure nostalgic song for me), ‘Mandir Masjid-1977’, ‘Do Dilwaale’ (1977), ‘Mastaan Dada’ (1977), ‘Aulia E Islaam-1979’. In ‘Shirdi Ke Sai Baba-1977’ his voice appeared in the song ‘Saibaba bolo’.

(There must be many more which did not find mentioned above. We need to compile the total list of his songs in HFM. I would be happy to share the list of his songs in HFM in future whenever I get an opportunity for that.)

Jani Babu also took lessons from Shabbir Hussain (Pakistani Ghazal Singer?) in singing Ghazals and he started moulding ghazals into qawwali format which again tells us how innovative he was.

Some of his ghazal-qawwalis like ‘seenaa dhuaan dhuaan hai, ishaare kahaan gaye’ and ‘is tarah gardish e ayyaam se baatein ki hai, kabhi taubaa kabhi jaam se baatein ki hai’ became very popular.

His devotional qawwali ‘aasaar -e -qayaamat’ created new records and its ‘records’ were sold in many thousands.

As a music director he gave music for the movies ‘Noor Mahal-1965’ and ‘Aulia-E-Islaam-1979’.

Jani Babu Qawwal passed away on 28th January’2008.

He will be always remembered for his pioneering works in Qawwali and for giving new dimensions to qawwali singing. Qawwalis which were hitherto restricted to Sufi Saints and to singing in Dargah’ only became popular and reach out to common man because of Jani Babu Qawwal.

***

In remembrance of Jani Babu Qawwal I am presenting a song from the movie
‘Noor Mahal – 1965’.

“Noor Mahal-1965” was a costume drama movie directed by Naushir Engineer for ‘Ratan Productions, Bombay’.

It had Chitra, Jagdeep, Tiwari, Lalita Desai, Wazeer Muhammad Khan, Madhumati and others.

This movie had six songs written by Saba Afghani (four songs), Aziz Ghazi and Noor Dewasi (one song each).

Music for this movie was composed by Jani Babu Qawwal.

In the singers’ list, for the songs of this movie, HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) mentions the names of Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Suman Kalyanpur, Suresh Rajwanshi, Kamal Barot and Krishna Kalle.

The most well-known song from this movie ‘mere mehboob na jaa, aaj ki raat na jaa’ was posted on the blog on 04.01.2009 and one more song – a qawwali– has been posted from this movie on 14.12.2021. (I was under the impression that the Rafi song from this movie has already been posted by Atul ji, but it seems that we still have to wait or it further 🙂 ).

Today’s song is sung by Manna Dey and lyrics are by Aziz Ghazi. Music is composed by Jani Babu.

In the movie this song happens in the back ground of a stage-act where, I guess, a dance troop is playing a show where they play a typical ‘radha-krishna’ love song.

We can see people watching this play in the movie and some ‘conspiracy’ going on behind the scenes in the movie.
I am unable to identify the actors and actresses performing on this song.

The audio version of this song is longer version. The song picturisation in the movie doesn’t have the first stanza. (I am not aware if the movie video available on internet is an edited one or complete version).

Listening to this composition reminds me of the ‘holi song’ from the movie ‘Navrang-1959’.

Let us now enjoy the today’s wonderful composition by Music Director Jani Babu ‘Qawwal’…

Today’s song is a very melodious duet from the film Actor-1951.

The film was directed by Ramjibhai Arya. I could not get any information about him except that he directed 6 Hindi films namely, Hind ke lal-40, Manthan-41, Jungle ki pukar-46, Bhedi Dushman-46, Sher E Bengal-47 and his last film as a director, Actor-1951. The musical score for this film was by 2 MDs – Aziz Hindi aka Aziz Khan and Ibrahim aka Master Ibrahim. There are many films having 2 MDs or even 3 MDs and also an unique case like the film Pathan-1962 which had a record 9 MDs ! (This film has nothing to do with Shahrukh khan’s controversial film Pathan released recently). In almost all cases songs are separately credited to each MD, as it is a Team work. In rare cases we find that a few songs are composed jointly by both MDs and credited accordingly.

In film Actor-51, as many as 4 songs were composed by both MDs together as per HFGK credits. I can understand composers working jointly on a song but I wonder how lyrics can be written by 2 Lyricists together. But in Hindi films this was not a rarity. Actually, a few years back, thinking that this phenomenon was worth discussing, I started finding such songs from the HFGK. After getting names of films where more than 1 lyricist have jointly written songs, like Chandrtalekha-48, Anyaya-49, Sheesh Mahal-50 Hum Log-51, Buzdil-51, Footpath-53, Chandni Chowk-54, Dhobi Doctor-54, Darbar-55, Miss Bombay-57, Changez Khan-57, Pardesi-57…I stopped my search. I realised that this happened in many films and was not a novelty. I cancelled my idea of discussing this matter in my posts.

Connected to these issues is another problem with stories of films like Actor -51. There are many cases in Hindi films, where remakes of earlier films on the same stories are made. As far as Folklore like Laila Majnu or Shirin Farhad or stories from Ramayan and Mahabharat, one can surely understand, but it is very strange why people want to make films on the same stories.

In some cases, in addition to the same stories, even the film titles are the same. The case of actress Sulochana-Ruby Meyers, is unique. She featured in 7 such films where the Titles and stories were the same. Sulochana acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53. She also acted in Madhuri-28 and Madhuri-32. She also acted in Indira B.A.-29 and Indira M.A.-34. Then there was Gunsundari-27 and Gunsundari-48, with different heroines. All these films had the same Titles and same stories.Actually Sulochana became the first ever actress to have worked in 3 films of the same title and story. The first male actor to do this was W.M.Khan who acted and sang in 3 films – Alam Ara-1931, Alam Ara-1956 and Alam Ara-1973. Ashok Kumar also acted in 3 films of the same title – Kangan-1939, Kangan-1959 and Kangan-1972, but here the stories were different.

Then there are other films which have same stories, but different Titles.Some of such films are Panghat-43 and Chitchor-76, Mala-41 and Amar-54 (MD was Naushad for both films and Jayant did the same role in both films), Grihasthi-48 and Ghar Basa ke dekho-63, Malkin-53 and Biradari-66, Aurat-40 and Mother India-57(Kanhaiyalal did the same role in both films) etc etc. There are 100s of such remakes, but I have yet to see a film which mentions it in their credits. One can not forget films like Do dooni chaar-68 and Angoor-82. Here the first hindi film Do dooni chaar was a remake of Bengali film of 1963, ” Bhrantibilas”, which was based on the novel of the same name by Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar who had taken inspiration from Shakespeare’s play ” Comedy of Errors“- which was an adaptation of a play by Plautus “ Menaechmi”. Hope this was atleast the original story !

It is a notable coincidence that in 1951, in just One year alone, there were 3 films with almost the same story and Bhagwan was the Hero in all 3 films – Actor-51, Damad-51 and Albela-51. The basic story was that a poor man, without any help, tries to become a Singer or an Actor and how Luck helps him to become a famous artiste. Film Daamaad was censored on 8-2-51, film Actor was censored on 1-5-51 and Albela was censored on 13-12-51 and released immediately on the next day i.e. 14-12-51.

The cast of the film Actor -51 was Ramola, Bhagwan,Sunder, Murad, Manchi Thoothi, Violet, Sulochana, Cuckoo and others. Actress Violet was the sister of her more famous actress sister Patience Cooper. Their one more sister Pearl was also in Hindi films. While Patience acted in 34 Talkie films, Violet acted in 16 films and Pearl acted only in 6 films. At the same time there was another set of 3 sisters in Hindi films namely Zubeida- 22 films, Shahzadi-26 films and Sultana-9 films. (actress Mehtab was their step sister who acted in 40 films. Mehtab was Sohrab Modi’s wife.) In later times there were the Travancore sisters – Lalitha, Padmini and Ragini who danced their way into Hindi films. Padmini and Ragini also acted in films.Padmini did 47 films while Ragini acted only in 23 films. Chandralekha-1948 was their first Hindi film.

You will find one name in the cast -Murad. Hardly anyone writes about him. I remember his role of a Land jahagirdar, who gives loan to Balraj Sahni in the film Do Bigha Zameen-1953. Actually finding information on Murad was difficult. Hamid Ali Murad or simply Murad was born at Rampur in Uttar Pradesh in 1911. He was very fair and good looking. He came to Bombay in 1942 to seek roles in films. Mehboob Khan had just established his own studio and Production house and was making his first film Najma. He gave a role to the fair and handsome Murad in the film Najma and thus started his film career with a character role. His career lasted till film Tamacha-1988, All these years he did only character roles. Murad was so fair and tall that ,in those days, many Policemen saluted him as if he was a British person !

Due to his personality, he would be selected for the roles of Judge, Police Commissioner, Badshah or a Maharaja. He was a favourite of producers / directors like Mehboob, K.Asif, Sohrab Modi, Kardar, Nitin Bose, Bimal Roy, K.A.Abbas, M.Sadiq etc, who would cast him in their films. Murad did more than 300 films and in almost 250 films, he did the role of a Judge. That must be a sort of a record,like Iftekhar as Police Commissioner !

Some of his famous films were Andaz, Anandmath, Do Bigha Zameen, Mirza Ghalib, Durgesh Nandini, Heer, Yahudi, Mugha e Azam, Palki etc etc. He fitted perfectly in Costume, Mughal and Historical films. In 1976-77, he became President of Cine Artistes Association. In 1981, he suffered from Paralysis, but continued to work in films till 1988.

Murad died on 24-4-1997, leaving behind a wife, 3 daughters and one son. His son Raza Murad-famous for his voice- is also an actor. ( Thanks to Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for information on Murad. )

Today’s duet is sung by Sulochana Kadam ( my favourite singer) and G.M.Durrani. It is very melodious and as usual, Sulochana is very good in this song. Enjoy….


Song- Teri galiyon mein aayee gore rang ki lugaai (Actor)(1951) Singers- Sulochana Kadam, G M Durrani, Lyricist-Nazim Panipati, MD- Aziz Hindi and Ibrahim (joint composition)

Today’s song is from the film Milan-1958.

Films having titles as Milan were made in 1946, 1958, 1967, and 1994. Then there was Milan ki Aag-1991, Milan ki Pyaas-1989, Milan ki Raat-1967 and Milan Talkies-2019. Even during the Silent era 2 such films were made, one in 1924 and the other in 1929. Milan-1946 had a historical value as it was made in Hindi and Bangla and was based on Tagore’s novel ” Noukadubi”. This was a Debut film for 2 Heroines, namely Meera Mishra and Ranjana- both opposite Dilip Kumar. The more famous film was Milan-1967, starring Sunil Dutt and Nutan and it was a remake of a hit Telugu film ” Mooga Manasulu”-1963. Its song ‘ Saawan ka mahina’ by Mukesh and Lata was very famous. It had a ‘rebirth’ story.

Film Milan-1958 was not actually based on a Rebirth story, but its story was about a loving couple separated and joined together after some years. The Indian audience loves such stories. That is why films having ‘ Happy Ending ‘ are made 100 times more than ‘ Sad Ending ‘ films ! When Saigal featured in the film ” Devdas’ in 1935, in which he died at the end, there was a wave of films in which the hero dies at the end. Dilip Kumar was a victim of such 8 consecutive films. Though his initial fame came with these films, it also stamped him as ” Tragedy King” and he had to consult a Psychiatrist and as per advice he shifted to Comedy films !

Film Milan-58 was directed by Kedar Kapoor. Kedar Kapoor was born on 2-9-1927. Not much information is available about him. Kedar joined the film line in 1945 and did a small role in the film Bhakta Prahlad-46. Working as an assistant to many directors, he started his career by directing the film Lal Pari-1954. In all he directed 35 Hindi films, mostly B and C grade. He specialised in Dara singh films. He directed 8 films of Dara Singh in the 60s. Some of his films were, Miss Cocacola-55, Changez khan-57, Senapati-57, Dara singh-64, Patanga-71 etc etc. His last film was Bekhabar-83. Kedar kapoor died on 5-6-1987.

The film was made by N.C.Films, a family concern and it was produced by Gulshan Behl-his brother. My sincere opinion is that there were only 2 MDs who were real melody makers. They were Hansraj Behl and Chitragupt. In every film atleast 50% songs used to be very melodious. Unfortunately, both of them never ranked in the “A” grade or within the first 5 to 10 MDs. This was because, barring some exceptions, they were never attached to any famous or well known film houses. That is how the film industry worked !

Hansraj Behl and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave a chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 62 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film “Insaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl is one of the music directors who became successful in the post independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 26th November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in the Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Lakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Azadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Azadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nationwide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mere Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost (1954) sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhani (1956), ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay (1957), ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh (1960), ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan (1959) and ‘Tujhko Dhundu To Dhoondu Kahan..’ from Milan (1959) crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Aazam in 1965.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

The cast of the film Milan-1958 was Nalini jaywant, Ajit, Nishi, Helen, Tiwari, Tun Tun, Narmada Shankar etc. Nalini Jaywant worked with Ajit in 10 films and with Ashok Kumar in 11 films. In this matter Nirupa Roy beats all Heroines. She worked with balraj sahani in 12 films, With Jairaj in 16 films, with Trilok Kapoor in 18 films and ….hold your breath, with Ashok Kumar, she worked in 21 Films ! (By the way she acted as Amitabh’s mother in 12 films too !).

The story of the film was….

Ajit and Nalini love each other and get married. They also have one son. While the son is growing up, they have serious differences and they separate from each other. Nalini , with her son, shifts to another town and works as a Nurse in a Hospital. Ajit gets involved with another girl-Nishi. After a few months, Nishi cheats Ajit and leaves him. Ajit gets disgusted with his life and leaves the town. By coincidence he too lands in the same town where Nalini and his son are living. They do not know about each other’s existence in the same town. One day, Ajit meets with an accident and is brought to the same hospital where Nalini is serving. She is shocked to see Ajit. She looks after him with care and as soon as he is well enough to be discharged, Nalini resigns from the hospital and packs her luggage to shift to another town- to be away from Ajit. Ajit enquires at the hospital about her address and goes to her house. Ajit begs her pardon and pleads her to be with him again. Both weep a lot together and then accept each other happily !

Today’s song is a duet by Rafi and Shamshad Begum, who have sung some of the best duets in Hindi films. Together, they sang 160 duets in their career. I am sure, more than 50 % will account for my favourites. Let us enjoy this duet now….

Today’s song is an interesting Trio from an old film Ghayal-1951.

The cast of the film was Sulochana Chaterjee, Shaikh Mukhtar, Geeta Bali, Jawahar Kaul, Ramsingh, p.Kailash, pesi Patel, Honey O’Brien, Yeshwant Dave, Rewa Shankar Marwadi and many more. There were 7 Lyricists for 11 songs of the film (one of them is a 2 part song). Likewise there were 6 singers. The M.D. was Gyan Dutt. All the singers were well known, except the singer ‘ Bhola’.

Many people think that Bhola was Bhola Shreshtha, the M.D., but it’s not true. This Bhola was Bulo C Rani,M.D. He joined the industry to be a singer. Khemchand Prakash gave him an opportunity to sing in the film Mehmaan-1942. Later, the same year,Gyan Dutt also gave him songs.Bulo C Rani sang 34 songs in 19 films – initial in his own name, and from 1944 onwards as ‘Bhola’, as he had become a Music Director himself by then, from film Moorti-1944.

Bulo C Rani was a Science graduate. In those days of early cinema, most people who joined the film line were less educated and mostly from lower middle class or poor families. Not ALL of course. There were few highly educated actors, directors, MDs etc but their number was much less. Actresses like Renuka Devi, Vanmala, Nalini Tarkhad etc. were graduates. Actors like Ashok kumar and Ranjan were graduates. Artistes like Dewan Sharar, Devika rani and Shakuntala Paranjpye had International experience, they wrote books also. Director Nanubhai Vakil and actor Surendra were BA,LL.B.

Ramchandra Thakur, Producer and Director of film Ghayal-51, was also from Elite and highly educated class. He also wrote articles in magazines – before and after his film career. Ramchandra Thakur was one such scholarly person who was a Postgraduate and a prolific writer on films in English, Hindi and Gujarati, before joining films. Ramchandra Thakur was born in Suver of Sabarkantha district in Gujarat, on 17-12-1908. He moved to Bombay when he was just 9 year old. He pursued his higher education in Bombay and emerged as a scholar of Pali language. When he gave his M.A. final exam, he wanted to become a teacher in a college, if he got First class. If not, he would join the film industry as a director. During his college years he had written many articles on films. He had translated Sound Recordist Minu Katrak’s English works in Hindi and Gujarati.

When he did not get First class, he joined Sagar Movietone, in its Marketing department. After a few months, Baburao Patel took over from him and he became an assistant director to Chimanlal Luhar for the film Dynamite-38. Next, along with Virendra Desai ( Nalini Jaywant’s first husband), he became a co-director of the film The Gramophone Singer-38. His first film, as an independent Director was the Debut film of Snehprabha Pradhan – Civil marriage-40. Then he joined Ranjit Movietone. He directed mythological, Social and Comedy films. Art Director Kanu Desai’s film Geet Govind was directed by him. Thakur directed 20 films. He also wrote the script for the popular film Baiju Bawra-52. He produced 5 films. He directed 2 Gujarati films and wrote stories and screenplays for several Gujarati films.

He was an accomplished writer. He wrote 4 novels – Amrapali, Budhidhan Birbal, Prem Diwani and Urmila. He wrote several satirical commentaries too. He wrote a detailed article on Sagar Movietone and Chimanlal Desai in Gujarati magazine ” Jee”. His last Hindi film as a director was Nawab Sirajuddaula-67, which he had produced also. He died on 31-10-1992.

I do not know about the storyline of the film Ghayal-51. One of my favourite actors – Jawahar Kaul – acted in this film. He was a very handsome fellow and had an unique style of acting. It was his bad luck that he could not prosper or become “A” grade actor, as in his period the competition was severe and there were many better actors operating then.

Jawahar Kaul was born in a Nehru family on the 27th of September in the year 1927 in the place revered as the heaven of India – Srinagar, Kashmir. When Jawahar was six days old, his grandfather’s sister adopted him, and his surname was subsequently changed to Kaul. Kaul did his Intermediate from the Punjab University and then went to the town of Rawalpindi. After spending some time there, he decided to go to Mumbai. His parents were not in favour of it and hence he convinced them that he would complete his graduation from the Pune University. He had a deep attraction for films from an early age and hence wanted to try his luck in the industry. In the 1940s, Dadar had three studios – Ranjit, Shri Sound and Supreme and hence was the epicenter of Indian cinema. Jawahar made Dadar his address.

He was always short on money as his family wasn’t aware of his venture into cinema. He often slept at the studio of Prabha Pictures. Due to his Kashmiri background – his looks, complexion, height were impressive, and he started getting work soon. Jawahar started his career doing minor roles. He used to portray supporting characters in big films. He made his debut while playing actor Kishor Sahu’s younger brother in the 1945’s ‘Veer Kunal’. In this year, he was seen in the role of ‘Humayun Mahawat’ in ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ which was made by Sohrab Modi. His first main lead role was in the flick ‘Khidki’ which was made in 1948. He was paired with Rehana for the same.

In Dadar, he became good friends with Radhakishan Mehra. Mehra used to live in the Lallubhai Mansion where Dada Bhagwan and Prabha Shankar Yagnik, ( brother of stunt film actor Navin Yagnik), the production managers of films used to stay too. It wasn’t long when Prabha Shankar and Kaul became good friends and started sharing their apartment. Their trio and friendship became popular in the film circle. Pyarelal Satoshi was friends with Radhakrishnan, and when he became a producer, he cast Kaul in his first movie. Kaul’s debut did average business, but the songs were a hit. Soon Kaul was seen in films like Azadi Ki Raah Par, Apni Chhaya, Kathputli, Pehli Jhalak, Laal Batti, Sahib Biwi Aur Ghulam, etc. He was a legend of the Black and White Cinema. He was a superstar in the films made in the 1960s. Throughout his career, he worked only in a few selected flicks, but he was able to efficiently enrapture the audience’s attention.

Jawahar was never happy about his career- the way it went. He had wanted it to be more successful. Anyway after his last film Zalim-1980, he left acting and joined as a Production Manager with Jwala Pictures of Sandeep Sethi. After two years he became his Secretary for the next 17 years. Meanwhile he produced a film-” Agniputra “, with Mithun Chakravarti. It took a long time to finally release in 2000. Not only was it a flop, it also gave a heavy financial burden on him. However, his only son and producer daughter Shabanam Kapoor repaid everything. He died peacefully in Andheri,Mumbai, on 15-4-2019. Till the end, he looked after his school and college ‘ Children’s welfare Centre’, nearby.

Jawahr Kaul acted in 31 films starting from a small role inGeet Govind-1947. I remember his role in my favourite film Dekh kabira Roya-1957.(Thanks to Beete Hue din Blog).

Like most artistes, the music Directors of the early cinema had a tough time in their later life. Music of their era and style was no longer saleable due to the changing tastes of the people. Newer and younger MDs had a tough competition themselves. Thus these oldies were helpless. Damodar Sharma became assistant to Laxmikant Pyarelal, Madholal Master started his business of making Puppets (His Joker’s puppet was used by Raj kapoor in his film ” Mera Naam Joker”), Vithaldas Panchotiya, Krishnarao Chonkar, Badri prasad, Rewa shankar Marwadi etc. started doing small roles in films to sustain life. B.R.Deodhar opened a Music school.

Rewashankar Marwadi had acted in today’s film Ghayal-1951. I tried very hard to get some information about Rewa Shankar Marwadi, who was an actor, lyricist, singer and also music director in the 1930s and 1940s. However I could not get anything concrete. Anyway I found a note on this multi talented artist of the early era, written by Shri Dhananjay Naniwadekar aka Nani, on the old RMIM forum, some 15 years ago and adapted by me for this article.

Some of Ranjit Movietone’s earliest talkie films had music by Ustad Jhande Khan. Next came the trio of Banne Khan, Ganga Prasad Pathak and Rewa Shankar Marwari. None of that music was ever released on 78 rpm records. From 1938-39, the great duo of Gyan Dutt and Khemchand Prakash took over the charge of Ranjit’s music, later to be joined by Bulo C Rani. It was only around 1938 that Ranjit started releasing its film music on 78-rpm records.

Rewa Shankar Marwari’s association with Ranjit Films and films produced or directed by ex-Ranjit hand Jayant Desai continued in the
1940s. While it is a pleasant surprise that imdb.com has a page for an obscure name like ‘Rewashankar Marwadi’ at all, it is not surprising
that his filmography has been put together for the site by people who are far from competent at that sort of thing. He acted in 27 films, till 1955, sang 12 songs in 9 films and gave music to 21 films from ‘Veer Babruwahan’ (1934) to ‘Matrubhoomi’ (1949). After 1949 only, he started acting in films.

Rewashankar Marwadi and Gangaprasad Pathak gave music together for Gunsundari- 1934 as well as the film Raat ki Raani-35. Rewashankar Marwadi then made a pucca pair with composer Banne Khan and this pair gave music to 12 films, as a pair. ( Barrister’s wife-35, College girl-35, Qeemati aansoo-35, Noor-e-watan-35, Chalaak chor-36, Raj Ramani-36, Dil ka daaku-36, Sipahi ki sajani-36, Matlabi Duniya-36, Lehri lala-36, Ghazi Diler-36 and Mitti ka putla-37 ). In my opinion, they should be considered the first pair of MDs as well as Trend setters and NOT Husnlal-Bhagatram. Of course the number of films the H-B team did was more ( 52), but that is because after 1935, the speed of making films increased. More films were made in the 40s and the 50s than in the 30s. Moreover many composers left for Pakistan in the late 40s, so more films for less composers were available. Numbers aside, but lack of enough knowledge about the early films and artistes has led to much injustice to the Pioneers, for sure !

Today’s song is a Trio, sung by G M Durrani, Geeta Roy and Meena Kapoor along with Chorus. The song is in 2 parts recorded on one single record-on both sides. HFGK mentions it as 2 separate songs, but today’s song is the combined version running for more than 6 minutes. Durrani’s voice was suitable for soulful songs- like Talat. However personally I feel he was better than Talat, though Talat got more popular songs than him. Durrani acted in 16 films, wrote songs for 1 film (Nazare-49), gave music to 8 films composing 48 songs and sang 305 songs in 168 films.

“Daaku”(1955) was directed by Aspi Irani for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Shashikala, Kuldip Kaur, Anwar Hussain, Maya Das, Babu Raaje, Sheikh, Naagpal, Michael, Habib, Gulnar, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Azurie, Iqbal, Adib etc. Sulochana was also there in a guest appearance.

“Daaku”(1955) had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Daaku”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha BHonsle. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snhal Bhatkar.

Theb song is picturised as a stage dance song of sorts on Shashikala and Shammi Kapoor who seem to be playin Indian version of gypsies. One can watch Kuldeep Kaur among the audience who seems to be disturbed at the sight of the dancing duo on stage.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

(#Music Composer-Singer-Bappi Lahiri#8 – The magic of Bappi Da & Kishore Kumar)

Regulars on the blog must be remembering that I had presented some Bappi Lahiri songs on the blog.

As I said earlier I am not a big Bappi Da fan but I do like many of his compositions. There was a time which I would like to mention as ‘Justice Chaudhary-Mawaali times’ when I was irritated of the songs composed by Bappi Lahiri and didn’t like them. Even today I didn’t like many of his compositions of those years.

But then there are some Bappi Lahiri songs which I liked and was aware of them since before, and some of the songs are those which I like and I was listening to them since years, but I was not aware that they were composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Today’s song is one such song which I recently get to listen on Radio (Vividh Bharati). And I was not aware that this was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

I like this song and thought that it must have been posted on the blog earlier. But that is not the case. This song is yet to be covered on the blog. I remember olistening to this song before and I think it was quite liked by the public too. May be the movie, the song is from, didn’t do well so this song was also forgotten easily.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and that makes it more special and enjoyable and that is another reason that I like this song very much.

The song is from the movie ‘Tai Chor -1980’.

‘Taxi Chor-1980’ was directed by Sushil Vyas for ‘L.D. Enterprises, Bombay’.

It was produced by Lachhman H. Tulsiani, Prakash Bathija and Dilip J. Pariyani.

It had Zarina Wahab, Mithoon Chakravarty, Madan Puri, Abhi Bhattachaya, Bharat Bhushan, Chandrashekhar, Sajjan, Sulochana, Poornima, Indira Bansal, Bhagwan, Rajendra Nath, Dhoomal, Polson, Prem Sagar, Raj Mehra, Murad, Shaikh, Mohammad Ali, Jagdeep, Keshto Mukherjee, Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Mukri ( in special appearance) and others.

The movie also had the new discovery Anita Sarin and Brajesh.

It also had child artists Baby Lata Malik, Kiran Seth, Sagar Brothers, and Naseer.

Story of this movie ‘Taxi Chor-1980’ was written by Dilip J. Pariyani.
Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by Vishwanath Pande. Editing of this movie was done by Baburao Barodekar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.08.1980.

Anjaan was the lyricist for this movie who had written all the four songs in this movie.
Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Usha Mangeshkar, Shailendra Singh, Suresh Wadkar and Anwar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is lip-synced by Mithoon Chakaravarty. From the picturisation of this song it is clear the song happens in a stage show. We can also see Zarina Wahab, Jagdeep and many other female artists in the picturisation. I could not identify the other female artist in this song. (we can also see another Mithoon Chakravarty coming to watch this show 🙂 which means this movie could be having a double role of Mithoon Chakravarty. I have yet to watch this movie).

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

“Poornima”(1965) was produced by Mahipat Ray Shah and directed by Narinder Suri for Roop Kala pictures, Bombay. The movie had Meena Kumari, Dharmendra, Anita Guha, Mahmood, Siddhu, Nazir Hussain, Durga Khote, Parveeen chaudhary, Sadhana Khote, Rajaa Nene, Kanu Roy, Kanchanmala, Kesari, Polson, Honey Irani, Babloo, P.D.Lal ,Polson, Snehmala, Raju, Baby Chand, Rajendra Singh, Johny Whisky, Shivjibhai etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Poornima”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on Meena Kumari, Anita Guha and others. Towards the end of the picturisation, a stanza from another song of the movie ( gori nain tumhaare kya kehne sung by Mukesh is artficially inserted.

It is one case where the video version, even though longer than the audio version is not authentic. It is the audio version, a Suman Kalyanpur solo song, which is the authentic version of the song. The video version may give the impression that it is a duet, but it is not.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

A special birthday. A landmark birthday. Don’t know what it is called in other parts of the country or world; but I know it as ‘Saptadi‘ meaning 70th birthday. And this post is to wish the concerned celebrity-entertainer who is an all rounder as far as emoting is concerned. He can be a repentant son (as in ‘Jaisi Karni Waisi Bharni’ (1989)), cute and lovable father (as in ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai’ (2000)), mean police officer (remember Inspector Laxman Bhide of ‘Insaaf’ (1987)) and the most lovable characters of Nandu to Raja Babu & Crime-Master Go-Go. These are just a few of the varied roles he has enacted in his 47 years in the film industry. I am sure the readers would have guessed that today is the 70th birth date of Shakti Kapoor.

Shakti Kapoor (birth name Sunil Sikanderlal Kapoor) is married to Shivangi Kolhapure which makes him jija of Padmini Kolhapure and Tejaswini (both are actors). He is father to Shraddha Kapoor (she made her Bollywood debut in 2010) and Siddhanth Kapoor (he debuted in 2013 as an actor prior to which he was assistant to director Priyadarshan). As we can see Shakti Kapoor has passed on his passion of acting to his children too. He is an actor who is fairly good at dancing. He made a great team with Kader Khan and Asrani in the films of the 80s and 90s. For the amount of time that he has been in the public sphere there will be many of his roles, scenes, even songs filmed on him that trigger memories.

Today’s song is one such song-dance sequence which I have dug out from memory. It is from the 1987 film ‘Dance Dance’, produced and directed by B Subhash. It hads Shakti Kapoor playing friend and troupe member with upcoming singers/siblings that Mithun and Smita Patil played. He falls in love with the sister (Smita Patil) and also marries her.

The plot has Resham (Shatki Kapoor) going a little wayward after the marriage viz. having extra-marital affairs, ill-treating the pregnant wife etc. Smita Patil dies and towards the climax, Resham reforms and saves Mithun from being shot by Amrish Puri & dies.

‘Dance Dance’ had songs that were essentially dance numbers (what else, the title is a giveaway) written by Anjaan and composed by Bappi Lahiri who was also the playback singer along with Vijay Benedict and Alisha Chinai. The blog already has the song “Everybody Dance With Pa Pa Pa” from this film.

With this song we also remember Lalji Pandey who passed away this date in 1997. He started his journey in Bollywood in 1953, wrote a lot of good songs through the 60s till the 90s. Many of the songs he wrote are still popular viz. “Bina Badraa Ke Bijuriya Kaise Chamke“; “Aapke Haseen Rukh Pe Aaj Naya Noor Hai“; “Aap Ki Inaayaten Aapke Karam“; “Luk Chhip Luk Chhip Jaao Na“; “Jis Ka Koi Nahin Uska To Khuda Hai Yaaro“. If I mention “Jis Ka Mujhe Tha Intezaar” and “Khaike Paan Banaras Waala” the readers will realize that Lalji Pandey is famous as Anjaan.

He was a lyricist who worked with composers from Datta Dawjekar to OP Nayyar, RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Anu Malik, Chitragupta, and all music directors of his time

Wishing Crime-Master Go-Go a very Happy Birthday and thank you Anjaan ji for this song.
