Blog Day :

Today (15 August 2022) is the 76th Independence day for India.So India has completed 75 years of independence. I have seen 60 Independence days. It is the 15th Independence day for the blog. This constitutes a nice 5:4:1 ratio.

Only 15 years had passed since independence when I was born. The country was still ruled by its first Prime Minister (Jawaharlal Nehru) and first President (Dr Rajendra Prasad). The country was still trying to find its feet. When I look back at the situation of India those days, India was in as bad shape as the most underdeveloped countries in Africa. The literacy rate was abysmal. Life expectancy was 32 years.

Here I present some important indices that India had in 1947. I have also provided figures for the same indices in 1962, 2008 and 2022. The change in values over the years have been quite remarkable.

Life expectancy in india in years
1947 1962 2008 2022
32 42 66 70

We can see that the life expectancy in India has become more than doubled from 32 years to 70 years.

Infant mortality rate (per 1000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
218 157 49 27

Infant mortality rate was quite alarming till a few decades ago. The figure of 27 deaths per 1000 live births is still unsatisfactory but it is a vast improvement from the figure of 1947.

Maternal mortality rate (per 100000 live births)
1947 1962 2008 2022
2000 1000 212 103

The Maternal mortality rate had improved by nearly 20 times in 75 years.

Literacy rate in India in %
1947 1962 2008 2022
12 % 29 % 70 % 77%

India was among the most illiterate nations on earth. Today Indian literacy rate is quite high and that has enabled India to take rapid strides in economic activities that require skilled manpower, viz service sector and manufacturing sector.

Population of India in crores
1947 1962 2008 2022
34 cr 47 cr 121 cr 140 cr

Indian population had quadrupled in 75 years.

Human Development Index
1947 1962 2008 2022
NA NA 0.563 0.645

Human development index was devised in 1990. It consists of indices of health, education and standard of living. As health, education and standard of living improves, so does HDI.

Agriculture production in Million tonnes
1947 1962 2008 2022
50 Million Tonnes (50 % of GDP) 71 Million tonnes 216 million tonnes 316 Million tonnes (17%)

Population has quadrupled whereas food grain production had increased more than six times. It had happened while agriculture sector is now contributing less than 20 % of GDP,  while it was over 50 % of GDP in 1947.

GDP in billion $
1947 1962 2008 2022
24 42 1200 3200

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

GDP per capita in $
1947 1962 2008 2022
70 90 1000 2277

The figures are based on the current values of those years using exchange rate of those days.

One can notice that India, despite its problems, including wrong policy decisions and adverse geo political circumstances, has come up a long way in last 75 years. Now India seems poised to take its rightful place among the nations of the world. It is a matter of time (three decades in my estimate) before India will join the list of advanced nations of the world.

There are lots of things that can be mentioned here, but the above tables give us clear idea about the progress that India has made in various areas.

On this occasion, here is a song from an unreleased movie called ‘Aaj Watan Ne Hamen Pukaara’ (1970). The movie was made under the banner of Sangam Productions, Bombay. That is all the information that is known about this movie.

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. Bismil Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mohinder Kaur.

Lyrics of this rare song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy 76th independence day.

Blog Day :

5130 Post No. : 17085

Today 4th August 2022 is the ninety-third birth anniversary (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) of Kishore Kumar.

For the music lovers and readers associated with this blog today is another great day and we remember Kishore Da today and pay our tributes to him today here on the blog.

Today I have been late in sending this post to our editors and I sincerely hope that they will get time to consider and post this one. For more than a month now there is a ‘special project’ going at my workplace and because of this I am getting very less time to participate in blog activities. Though I wish to write and send many posts and many songs keep going through my mind on daily basis, but I am unable to concentrate and put in my energy on writing. I hope things to get back to normal after this ‘two months’ project gets over.

Today’s post got delayed because I was unable to make my mind up while making the selection. There are so many Kishore Kumar songs yet to be posted on the blog.
Since today is his birth anniversary I first looked for a happy song, then a fun song, then a romantic song, only a solo song, inspirational song, motivational song etc etc.

There was one song lying since years and pending to be posted, but it was a duet song and I did not wish to post a duet on this occasion today. I even noted two other songs, but then decided to send other.

Finally, I selected a Pancham composition which is in a sombre mood. Nevertheless listening to Kishore Kumar’s voice in this soulful song will bring back many memories for the readers. Poetry in the song by Majrooh Saab is also very nice and philosophical. The music prelude, the guitar and the mouth organ in between used in this composition is also very nice to listen to.

The movie and its songs were not much popular during its time. Nevertheless the overall musical score for this movie by Pancham Da is very very nice.

So here I am presenting a song from the ‘1985’ movie ‘Sitamgar’.

‘Sitamgar-1985’ was directed by Raj N Sippy for Bikramjeet Films International, Bombay and produced by Bikram Singh Dehal.

It had Dharmendra, Parveen Babi, Rishi Kapoor, Poonam Dhillon, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Prem Chopra, Jagdish Raj Gurbachan, Ranvir Raj, Azad, Tilak Mehta, Raj Kaul, Shamsuddin, Nath Kamle, Ved Akash, Ashok Gaekwad, Master Alankar, and Baby Geeta. Narendra Nath, Sonia Shania, and Sudhir make special appearance in this movie.

Ved Aakash and Pankaj Kharbanda were the Chief Assistant Directors of this movie. Ashok Gaekwad was the Associate Director for this movie.

V.N. Mayekar was the editor while Sakharam Borse assisted him in editing. Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers and dialogues were written by Dr. Rahi Masoom Raza.

This movie had six songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by R.D. Burman (Manohari, Babloo and Martin were assistants). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is picturised on Dharmendra who is riding on a horse. It reminds us of many songs with similar picturisation.

Lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and music is composed by R.D. Burman.

The audio version is having three stanzas while the video of this song is of only two stanzas.

Let us now listen to the great voice Kishore Kumar and take a journey down memory lane …

Blog Day :

5083 Post No. : 17007

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ (1984).

One song from this movie has been posted on the blog by our Respected Sadanand ji, – “Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye“. In his write up Sadanand ji has mentioned Indian cricket and Bollywood both enjoy enormous popularity among Indians”. Yes! Very rightly said by him and this has the case been with most of our country-men and particularly people like me who have grown up in the ‘seventies’. We loved movies and cricket at the same level and they have been an integral part of our ‘life’s journey’.

Today I will add a little to the nostalgia about cricket, a song from a movie where a cricketer was the main lead and memories of the month of June. As I had mentioned earlier ‘June’ has been special month for me for many reasons. It has birth anniversaries and other anniversaries of closed ones and many other important things of my personal journey.

Other than the personal anniversaries we have anniversaries related to cricket 😊, anniversary of my passing out board exam in June 1983 😊, and anniversaries of many movies and memories of many movies released in 1983. We have birth anniversary and remembrance days of many artists etc.

1983 had been a special year for me and particularly the summer of 1983. Every summer brings back many memories of the 1983 summer to me. India won its first Cricket World Cup in June 1983. The movie ‘83’ which was released in December 2021 revived the thrill and nostalgia of the 1983 cricket world cup. I watched this movie twice on its First day (i.e. first Friday) and again on ‘second Friday’ in theater. Recently again I watched this movie on OTT as I was alone at home 😊.

In this article I am not going to discuss the ‘Summer of 1983’ or ‘June of 1983’ anymore. But I will be taking you back to the summer of 1982. Indian cricket team was on tour to England in that summer of 1982.

Yes, I still remember how I jumped out of my bed, when I was listening to the commentary of radio of the second test of India vs England Test match that was played from June 24 to 28 at Manchester during India’s tour of England in 1982. It was 27th of June (since 1994 this day become very special day of my life, and yes, we have Pancham’s birthday on the same day too  😊).

27th June, 1982 was the fourth day of this test and the time in India then must have been around 10 or 10:30 pm (I do not remember it exactly now). I was lying down on bed and listening to the commentary of this match on radio. And I jumped from my bed and sat on my toes in half standing position when the commentator was giving a ball by ball commentary of the over England’s bowler Bob Willis (who was also the captain of England). The batsman on strike was India’s Sandeep Patil. The first ball was hit for a four and then followed four after four…

This was the famous ‘six fours of Sandeep Patil in an over…

Sandeep Patil made his test debut in 1980 and played his last ODI in 1986. He was always in news for his ‘destructive batting’ and ‘other than cricket’ activities. From cricket I always remember his 174 against Australia, then the ‘world cup’, and when he was specially called for a test with Pakistan at Nagpur (Oct’1983) where he landed by a special ‘air-craft’ provided Maharashtra Government.

In between his cricket career he had also done a movie. Today we are going to listen to a song from this movie. Though this movie was not a success it was in news and especially the chemistry between Sandeep Patil and the heroine of the movie Debashree Roy was a talk among our senior friends at that time. I have not watched this movie.

‘Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe’ was directed by Vijay Singh for VS Productions, Bombay. Vijay Singh not only directed this movie, but he was also the producer of this movie and had written dialogues of this movie and had done the editing of this movie too. The star cast of the movie has Poonam Dhillon, Sandeep Patil, Debashree Roy, Ram Sethi, Iftekhar, Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo, Narendra Nath, Birbal, Jugnu, Raj Anand, Chunnu Mehra, Vinay Mandke, Indrajeet Ahluwalia, and others. Sayyad Kirmani, Barrister Sheshrao Wankhede, Prabhu Desai, Vishwas Raut, Ashok Mankad, and Pinki had made a friendly appearance in this movie. Shakti Kapoor had made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 25.09.1984.

The movie has seven songs written by two songwriters – Dev Kohli (five songs) and Ravindra Peepat (two songs). Music for this movie was composed by Vijay Singh himself. So, he had donned the ‘hats’ of Producer-Director-Editor-Dialogue writer and Music Director of this movie). Here is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song title Lyricist Singer/s
01 Welcome To The Orkay Nite … Pehli Nazar Mein Pyaar Huaa Dev Kohli Suniti Devi, Vinay Mandke, Aenet, chorus
02 Kabhi Ajnabi Thhe Zameen Aasmaan Ye Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar
03 Aa Ja Mere Sanam, Baithhe Hain Raahon Mein Palken Bichha Ke Ravindra Peepat Lata Mangeshkar
04 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
05 Geet Mere Honthhon Ko De Gaya Koi Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
06 Is Dafaa Ham Na Ghataaon Ki Tarah Chhaayenge Dev Kohli Lata Mangeshkar
07 Dil Ki Is Dehleez Tak Jo Mehmaan Ban Ke Aaye Dev Kohli Ashok Khare

HFGK mentions the following names in the singer’s list of this movie i.e. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Suniti Devi, Ashok Khare, Vinay Mandke, and Vijay Singh. Today’s song is duet song sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip synced by Poonam Dhillon and Sandeep Patil.

Lyrics for the today’s songs are by Ravindra Peepat and music is composed by Vijay Singh.

As Sadanandji has mentioned in his post “The only plus point in the movie, if I may say so, is its music”. This movie has nice songs and I like all the songs of this movie except the songs listed at serial no. 1 in the above table which I think I had not listened or I do not remember it. Incidentally the first song from this movie was also posted in the month of June on 18.06.2016 :).

Let us enjoy the today’s song now…

Blog Day :

5078 Post No. : 17001

———————————————–—————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 52
————————————————————————————–

This date (13 June) ten years ago (2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6072 Jab ankhiyaan pehli baar milin Paraaye Bas Mein(1946) 3 songs covered out of 7 by now
6073 Chanda taley muskuraaye jawaaniyaan Chandi Rani (1953) 1 song covered out of 9 by now
6074 Ganga ki reti pe bangla chhawaayi de Mirza Ghalib (1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
6075 Aankhon mein teri yaad liye jaa reha hoon main Hamaari Yaad Aayegi(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
6076 Subah hoti hai shaam hoti hai Aplam Chaplam (1961) 3 songs covered out of by now

We can see from the table that two movies out of five whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (13 June 2022).

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) is one of the three eligible movies. This movie was directed by by Dawood Chand for India United Pictures, Lahore. The movie had Pran, Asha Posley, Ramlal, Zubeida, Zahoor Shaah, Ghulam Khadir, Maala, Deepak, Wazir Begum, Nazar etc in it.

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) had 7 songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Though HFGK is silent about the music director and lyricist, the music sounds typical of Vinod (who was one of the two music diretors of the movie, other being Niaz Hussain Shami. The movie had two lyricists as well, namely Aziz Kashmiri and Tufail Hoshiarpuri. It is easy to guess that Aziz Kashmiri , a regular collaborator of Vinod has to be the lyricist. Our regular Mr Sadanand Kamath also feels the same about the music director and lyricist of this song.

Only the audio of the song is available. My uess is that the song was picturised on Asha Posley, the heroine of the movie. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Toofaan -1975#
—————————————

Today’s song is from the movie “Toofaan-1975”.

I have vague memories of watching this movie in my childhood. But I do not remember the movie, its songs, or its story. What I remember is the hero wearing a mask (Zorro type mask) and riding a horse, with a sword in his hand (?).

I had in one of my earlier post on the blog mentioned earlier that I get to watch the movies ‘Do Khilaadi-1976’, ‘Double Cross-1973’ and ‘Toofaan-1975’ on back to back days at small town ‘Malkapur’ in the ‘Vidarbha’ region of Maharashtra (somewhere around 1976-1977).

My parents were on tour to this place for their ‘Marathi play’ to be staged there. I must be around eight-nine years old then. I and my brothers get to watch these movies then. As I mentioned earlier, I carried the memories of one song (or rather their ‘mukhda’ only) each from ‘Do Khilaadi’ and ‘Double Cross’ and from this movie ‘Toofaan’ I remember the masked hero only and the name of the hero i.e. Vikram.

Today I present the first song from this movie ‘Toofaan-1975’ on the blog and this movie is making a debut on the blog today.

‘Toofaan-1975’ was directed by Kedar Kapoor for ‘Sargam Pictures (Pvt.) Ltd., Bombay’.

It had Vikram, Priyadarshini, Roopesh Kumar, Jagdeep, B.M. Vyas, Jeevan, Jayraj, Trilok Kapoor, Sajjan, Rajan Haksar, Abhijit Sen, Rajan Kapoor, Kirti Kumar, Shetty, V. Gopal, Shriram, Ramlal, Vijay Khanna, Urmila Bhatt, Praveen Pal, Meena T., Bahnumati, Sujata and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975.

‘Toofaan-1975’ has seven songs, all of them penned by Ravindra Jain.

Ravindra Jain also composed the music for this movie.

Here is the list of songs this movie has.

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Toofaan toofaan hai mera naam Mohd Rafi
02 O barkha mujhe sach sach bataa Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
03 Pyaar kar, pyaar kar, dhaar kar, dhaar kar Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
04 Baj jaayega baaja baj jaayega Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05 Reshma mera naam hai, naachna mera kaam hai Asha Bhonsle
06 Chalo koi khel khelen ham Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
07 Sachche ka sachche ka bolbaala Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. It is an ‘introduction type’ song and its lyrics are very simple and straightforward. ( I listen to the other couple of songs from this movie and I find they also have very simple and straightforward lyrics 😊. Our readers will be able to listen to them on the blog as and when they are posted here).

On screen we see the ‘masked hero’ lip syncing this song ( because he doesn’t take out the ‘mask’ and so his face cannot be seen 😊, but he must be Vikram – the hero of this movie 😊 ).
We do not have any option to watch the song as it is because the hero is telling us in the song that ‘karoon main to apne hi jee ki, chaahe kuchh bhi ho anjaam’ 😊. We can see the hero travelling riding on a horse through different terrains and waiving people (villagers) and taking care of them and helping them.

( I guess this movie must have been inspired by the character of ‘Zorro’. We have one more movie like this 😊 )

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us listen to and enjoy today’s song sung by Rafi Saab. Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain, and he has also composed the music.

By listening to the today’s song we can also guess what the movie is all about …

With the today’s song ‘Toofaan-1975’ makes its debut on the blog and joins the ‘Toofaan’ (s 😊) of ‘1954’, ‘1969’, and ‘1989’ already available on the blog.

That is all for now 😊 let’s listen to the song now …

Editor’s note:-This song from “Toofaan”(1975) is Mohammad Rafi’s 3200th song in the blog and 1500th solo Mohammad Rafi song in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

The song in this post is the perfect candidate for the “how come this song was not posted earlier” category. It being the most popular song of the film. There have been three songs posted on the blog, out of eight (I think) that this movie has, and this song is mentioned in at least two of these posts.

Avinash ji, in his post of the song “Jeene Ko To Jeete Hain Sabhi“, wondered how today’s song missed a place in that year’s Top 30 of the famous Binaca Geetmala.

Nahm ji has given the complete story of this movie in her post of the song “Mil Gayeen Aaj Do Lehren“. She has also pointed towards the connection between the song in that post with today’s song.

The movie had made it’s debut on the blog with the song “Maine Tujhe Kabhi Kuchh Kaha Tha“.

I am talking of ‘Ye Vaada Raha’ (1982) which was directed by Kapil Kapoor for Rose Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Ramesh Behl. It had Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, Poonam Dhillon, Sarika, Rakhi, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, Agha, Sundar, Gulshan Bawra, Hari Shivdasani, and others. Shammi Kapoor made a special appearance in this movie. The film has six (but I think I have counted eight songs because one is a multi-version song) songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Revisiting ‘Ye Vaadaa Rahaa’ today on the occasion of Gulshan Bawra’s birth anniversary. He would have been 85 today. He was associated with many popular songs in his career – songs which were tuned by Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmikant Pyarelal, RD Burman and other music composers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. The last movie for which he penned songs was the Akshay Kumar- Twinkle Khanna starrer ‘Zulmi’ which released in 1999. It had music by Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen; he had also appeared on the screen in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with Rishi performing a waltz with an imaginary partner and then Poonam joins him. The video that I found on YouTube has all the versions stitched together. So, the second part of the song begins 3 minutes into the video where Tina Munim is reminiscing her days with Rishi Kapoor. I am unable to find videos where the three versions are separate.


Song-Tu, Tu Hai Wahi Dil Ne Jise Apna Kaha (Ye vaada Raha)(1982) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Gulshan Baawra, MD-RD Burman

phir ho naa juda

tujhe main jahaan ki nazar se chura loon
kahin dil ke kone mein tujhko chhupa loon
kabhi zindagi mein pade mushkilen to
mujhe tu sambhaale tujhe main sambhaaloon

ho mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
ho mil jaayen iss tarah
do lehren jis tarah
phir ho naa juda haan ye vaada raha
tu tu hai wahi

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 37
————————————————————————————–

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5696 Raam duhaayi hai raam duhaayi hai Neki Aur Badi (1949) 8 songs covered by now out of 10

Today’s song is a foot tapping song from the film Fashionable wife-1959.

Nepotism,Corruption and Lack of Nationalism are the 3 ills common to most Indians.These things have been so common that not only now they are deep rooted in our behaviour, but also we have stopped considering them as vices anymore. They are a part of our life in many ways.

Corruption at every level of every aspect of our living is practiced unabashedly. From giving bribes to a policeman for breaking a traffic rule to giving bribes to get a Govt. Contract has become an easy way to replace discipline and hard work. After 15th August and 26th January, torn Indian Flags on the road and in the dustbins as well as stealing Govt. property from Railway Coaches and Govt. offices is a routine sight we come across. The plum jobs going to close relatives of big officers is no longer considered a crime !

These are very irritating matters when they concern and trouble us. If it is not concerning us, we take them philosophically !

In India these 3 criminal vices are spread to all walks of life and are found in almost every department. Can our Film Industry be far off from this ? Certainly Not !

Those already successful and adorning a high pedestal position in the film line, try to push their children or siblings into this line, irrespective of whether they have the talent or not. For others ” The Casting Couch” is seen as a kind of corruption or ‘wilful’ bribing. Making films with distorted History intentionally and glorifying the historical characters who looted India and did unlimited harm to Indians is nothing but a lack of Nationalism !

Nepotism is one ill which has been there in the films from the beginning. Bringing sons and daughters-even the wife- as actors has been there always. The Heroine of the First Indian Talkie film “Alam Ara”-1931, Zubeida had her 2 sisters and mother in the film line. One of the actors of this film- Prithviraj kapoor practically became the father of Indian films. His all sons, Grandsons, great grandsons and daughters came into films.

Acting is not a Genetic quality. It is not necessary that every successful actor or director’s children can become successful actors automatically. More often than not the star sons and daughters have (luckily) failed, saving the audience the trauma of bearing their stony presence on the silver screen. There is a long list of such failed stars, star sons and star daughters, but I quote here only a few examples.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj,Shammi and Shashi,who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony Walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup Kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti Ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of famous family members, these and so many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given fair opportunities to display their talent on the screen , but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar , which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director ,who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan. Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar . But the movie flopped ,as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan ,who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from the scene forever . His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued a film career ,but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him ,who got a chance to appear opposite illustrious heroines , unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen , no film maker came forward to sign them . Out of sight is out of mind ,it was a matter of time when the public as well as the film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, is a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951 . It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan . The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films , among hundreds of aspirants . Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge setback when Aman flopped .He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia ,opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately , Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea ,Rattan Chopra understood & wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physiques , but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards the film industry . Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting .The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke. Premender with Kumud Chhugani in Holi Aayee Re.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev kapoor, Manish kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

Among them, some film names which I remember off hand are Arjun in Malhar-51, Rattan Chopra in Aman-67,Mom ki Gudia-72, Vijay Kumar in Alif laila-54,Premendra in Holi aayee re-70, Deepak kumar in Aabroo-68, Ajay in Wapas-69, Som Dutt in mann ka meet-68, Vikram in Julie-75,Rajeev Kapoor in Raam teri Ganga maili-85, Shekhar Suman in Utsav-84, Kaycee Mehra in Chhabilee-60 and Mem Didi-61, Prashant in Sehra-63, Ashok Sharma in Hamari yaad aayegi-61, Ajit Chitnis in Aaj ki baat-55, Nusrat Kardar in Dard-47, Manish in SaraswatiChandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

All this came to my mind when I saw the film cast of Fashionable wife. The cast included Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Radhakishen, Manorama, Leela Mishra, Daisy Irani and many others. heroine Jaymala was the wife of the producer, director and the owner of the banner ‘Adarshlok’, Bombay – B.K.Adarsh. This was her Debut film as a Heroine. At first glance, one will tend to feel that being the director’s wife must have been her way to be the film’s Heroine. But to be fair, she was already in the film line before marriage, though not as a Heroine.

Jaymala was born on 21-8-1938 at kasur, Punjab. She always craved to become an actress. She came to Bombay along with a relative and got a small role in the film Mandir-1948.

Her first major film was Hazar pariyan-1957. Some of her films were Ramudada, Durga pooja, Harshchandra Taramati, Love and Murder, Spy in Rome, Rambha Haran, Balak, Sampoorna Teerth Yatra, Veer Arjun, Babruwahan, Aaj ka ye Ghar etc.

She acted in 24 films. She even sang a song in the film Fashionable wife-1959.

After marriage with Adarsh Lok,she debuted as a Heroine in FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959. She had a double role in this film.Then she continued with Adarsh Lok’s films as a Heroine only. After husband’s death, she managed his production company. Her last film was Private Life-1983, as a Heroine and a Producer. Her son Taran Adarsh is a famous film critic.

She died on 27-7-1997 in Mumbai.

It is a coincidence that my last post was also on a film where sisters were seen in double roles. Today’s film also has sisters in double roles again. The film story is…

FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959 was produced and directed by Adarsh Lok, the Music Director was the duo of Suresh-Talwar ( Assistant Johnny Gomes) and the lyricist was Bharat Vyas. Story,Screenplay and Dialogues were by Waheed Qureshi. The cast was Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Leela Mishra, Iftekar, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Radha Kishen, Manorama etc.

Girdhari and Susheela were a couple who continuously fought over only one point-how to bring their twin daughters. Susheela wanted them to be traditional and Girdhari was keen on making them ultra modern” to face the new World’. Finally the couple separated with Ragini opting for the traditional Mother and Kamini staying with her Modern Papa.

Ragini marries Balraj(Abhi Bhattacharya) and she is very happy. However her Mother in law(Leela Mishra) is not happy with her and there are daily fights, culminating in Ragini leaving her house and doing social work independently.

Kamini marries Natwar(Anup Kumar), her Dance trainer and happily lives with him, enjoying life. She has no time for any household responsibilities. She spends quite a lot arranging frequent parties. Due to all this her young devar Raju runs away from the house and Natwar is also fed up with her.

In short both the girls have a spoiled family life.

There is comic relief in the form of Manorama and Radha Kishen, who are the neighbours.

After many twists, coincidences and meaningless happenings, the girls learn their lessons. The film tries to stress that Traditional ways are always better, but they also must mix a little modernity in keeping with the times.

At the end Girdhari and Susheela unite,so do Kamini-Natwar and Balraj and Ragini.

Today’s song is sung by Jaymala and chorus. This is the only song which she ever sang in films. With this song she makes her Debut as a singer,on our Blog.

In the second half of the 50’s decade, films were deeply influenced by Rock N Roll music. This song is also like that.

fashion ki shahzaadi aayi
oonchi aedi bikhre baal
lovely lovely chaal
