Today’s song is from a film of the early 40s – Apna Ghar-1942. One song from this film was discussed about 5 years back here. That makes today’s song its second song. This film was made by Circo Productions, belonging to a professional- Chimanlal Trivedi. The film was directed by Debki Bose. This was his first Hindi film in Bombay after he moved from New Theatres, Calcutta, due to some differences.

Debaki Kumar Bose, Bengali and Hindi director was born in Akalpoush, Burdwan Dist., West Bengal on 25-11-1898.He was the Son of a noted solicitor, Madhusudhan Bose. Influenced by Sisir Bhaduri, his teacher at Bidyasagar College, Calcutta (1920), he left university to join the non-co- operation movement of Calcutta Congress (1920). He was caught and jailed. After coming out,his father threw him out. He started selling ‘Gamachhas’ on the road. He started and Edited journal, Shakti, from Burdwan (1927-8). One day he was seen and hired by Dhiren Ganguly as actor and scenarist for Dinesh Ranjan Dass’ Kamonar Aagun (1930), Devotee of Vaishnava evangelical movement. He joined British Dominion Films (1927) as scenarist, then director.

He became friendly with the Cinematographer Krishna Gopal, with whom he went to Lucknow where they made a film ” A shadow of dead”. The film flopped and Debki returned to Calcutta, but Krishna Gopal was held hostage by the producers till he paid their investment. Debki took a loan from P C Barua and paid that amount to get Krishna Gopal released.

He joined P.C. Barua’s Barua Pics (1930), then entered New Theatres (1932-4) together with Barua, directing the studio’s first hit, Chandidas, after 7 consecutive flops by New Theatres.. This was the First film in India,with Background music. Its cinematic validation of a major stage genre – the quasi-legendary biographical – helped lessen Bengali cinema’s dependence on the Calcutta Theatres for its themes as well as its literary, musical and acting talent. Early work known mainly for his free and inventive approach to established genres, esp. the mythological and the Saint film, creating a Bengali quality cinema (e.g. Aparadhi and Chandidas). He was the one who promoted film music as a mix of Rabindra sangeet and Indian Classical music. It helped New Theatres to make its film songs popular all over India.

He also made Pooran Bhagat-1933. Handsome actor Mijjan (Syed Hasan Ali Zaidi) was the Hero. When the film was ready and about to be released,communal riots started in Calcutta,between Hindu and Muslims. After the peace returned,New Theatres was worried about Mijjan’s name in this Mythological film. Debaki kumar Bose,who hailed from a rich Zamindar family,told Mijjan “dont worry. From today I give you half of my name-Kumar.” Mijjan’s name became Kumar and he went on to become a big actor. After this,Debaki Bose himself never used the suffix Kumar to his name,in his life.

He made Rajrani Meera in 1933. During this film making he had a quarrel with director Nitin Bose and he decided to leave New Theatres.

After this he Went to East India Film (1934-6) where he made the lyrical Seeta which launched Prithviraj Kapoor and Durga Khote as a star duo. Seeta became the First Indian film to be sent to the International film festival at Venice. Here the film won a Diploma too and thus Debaki Bose was the first Indian artiste to win an International award for his film. He then Returned to New Theatres (1937-41), on invitation of B N Sarkar, making the classic Bidyapati.

In 1942 he left Calcutta and came to Bombay. His first film here as a Director was Circo’s Apna Ghar, made also in Marathi as ‘ आपले घर ‘. This also he directed.

His independent Debaki Bose Prod. (1945) with stars from the Hindi and Marathi cinemas paved the way for other Calcutta cine artistes after the decline of New Theatres in the early 40s. Made Arghya, a documentary on the caste system, based on four narrative poems by Tagore to celebrate the centenary of his birth. Debaki Bose was not just a director,but he was an actor (3 films),a producer (1 film) and also a writer (14 films). He was given the Sangeet Natak Academy award in 1957 and a Padmashree in 1958. He was India’s star director.

He died on 17-11-1971 at Calcutta. In his career of 31 years he made 50 films,in Bangla,Hindi,Marathi,Tamil and English.

The cast of the film Apna Ghar-42 was Shanta Apte, Chandra mohan, Maya Banerjee, Jagdish Sethi, Jeevan, Nimbalkar, Mahesh Kaul, David, Gope etc.etc. This film was also made in Marathi and that also was directed by Debki Bose. Chandra mohan, who started his career with Prabhat’s film Amrit Manthan-1934 could not act in its Marathi Version as he did not know Marathi. His role was done by Keshavrao Datey, in the Marathi version. Chandra Mohan felt very bad and with some difficulty started learning Marathi and in a period of few months he became fluent in it. With this added qualification he acted in 3 Marathi film versions, including Apna Ghar, which was titled ‘ आपले घर ‘. Hats off to his determination. The other two films were Jwala-38 and Geeta-40 ( he had a double role in it). He used to speak only Marathi on the sets of these films.

From the day silent films started being made, till today, thousands of people must have joined this film industry as actors and in many other departments, from a Clapper Boy to a big producer. By one estimate about 7000 people had joined film industry between 1913 to 2000. I wonder how so many people joined an industry which did not provide any security, nor did it assure continuous earnings. Leave aside the stigma of working in” films” in olden times, but this industry neither had permanent jobs nor a fixed income or a Pension. Take a look at any film-Silent or Talkie-only a handful people were credited. Later in the Talkie films, this list became larger. One can see this in any volume of HFGK of 30s or 40s. But then, if you exclude the names which got repeated in films, the total list of actors may not cross 2-3 thousand, perhaps. Then there were nother department people also.

Barring the main and known actors, most other actors are not even identifiable for the general public. Names without faces! Such actors constitute the bulk of numbers in the industry. If you take a look at the cast of a film, more than half of names are unknown or known by only repeat value in many films. These names have no faces. Information about them is not available in any books. They remain only names, replaced by other names after few years. The extras or junior artistes who are seen on screens in many scenes, throughout the film are also members of the industry.

Like any other language, there are writers and authors in Marathi too, who write on old films and old actors etc from the vintage Hindi films. One such author calls himself ” Babu Moshoi “. His articles are published regularly in newspapers, magazines etc. He has written several books. His real name is Hemant Desai. Another such writer in Hindi and Gujarati is Vithal Pandya. I have many such books in my library. Through these books I get to know old actors and their information, sometimes. I get surprised at many names as I read about some names about whom I had never known. For example, do you know who did King Dashrath’s role in films Bharat Milap-42 and Ramrajya-43, or the role of Kanva Muni in film Shakuntala-43 ? Who was the actress in Kaushalya’s role in Ramrajya-43 or Ram Vivah-49 ?

This actor was I.T. Nimbalkar and this actress was Shanta Kothari (nee Shanta Kumari). These were artistes from Silent film era, spilled over the Talkie films. They started as Hero and Heroine, but shifted to character roles, as the time went by. In our film industry, such cases are not new. In fact such type of actors who remained practically unknown to later generations of audiences, were highly respected by film people during shootings. Their seniority and work was respected.

This is a very good practice in the industry, by directors and other actors to give respect to old timers. Raj Kapoor used to send his car to fetch Bhudo Advani for shootings of film Boot Polish scenes. Hrishikesh Mukherjee kept special chair for Master Shiraz, during the shooting of film Guddi. He also ensured to feature Shiraz in the film credits. In one of the film related functions, I have myself witnessed how Amir Khan, Anil Kapoor and others treated yesteryear actress Susheela Rani, with great respect. These are only samples to stress what I have said. Not every such matter is published but it is a special feature of the industry.

I try to gather information on such unknown and forgotten artistes and write on them. Not everytime I am successful, but I have written about many such actors, directors, MDs etc. Some of them are Omkar Devaskar, Zunzar rao Pawar, Ganapat rao Bakare, Shankar rao Vazare, Naseem Junior, Shamim Jr, Altaf, Urmila, Ranjana, Kusum Deshpande, Vasant rao Thengadi, Jamshed ji etc etc. Today, we will know more about one such old time actor who was prolific and worked in films of Bombay and Calcutta.

I.T. Nimbalkar aka Indurao T. Nimbalkar ( he was always credited as only ‘ Nimbalkar ‘ in all films) was born on 6-12-1893, in Kolhapur state. This was the time Kolhapur was slowly developing as Kalapur (hub of arts) and the seeds of film making were being planted there. Baburao Painter, one of the original film makers had started his ” Maharashtra Film Company” on 1-12 1917.

Baburao, Damle, Fattelal etc were taught painting By Anandrao painter, who was an extraordinary painter of those times. All these people, along with V Shantaram, Keshavrao Dhaiber and few more also joined Baburao painter’s Maharashtra Film company. True that, film making had started even earlier in Maharashtra, but Baburao painter is credited with making films a form of art and spreading it on a larger canvas of India.

Indurao Nimbalkar grew up in this atmosphere in Kolhapur. He passed his Matriculation exam and also did a diploma in Printing. Nimbalkar was six feet tall and had a good physique. He was expert in riding, swimming and wrestling. He did 1000 sit-ups every day. Shahu Maharaj, the king of Kolhapur encouraged all arts as well as development of lower castes. Arya Samaj had a ‘ Gurukul’ in Kolhapur. Impressed with Nimbalkar’s education and body, Shahu ji appointed him as Editor of the weekly ‘ Arya’ and secretary of Gurukul.

One day Baburao Painter, along with assistant V Shantaram visited his press and offered Nimbalkar a role in his proposed film Sairandhri. Shahu Maharaj also permitted and encouraged him ,so Nimbalkar joined the film line. He was already famous due to his fiery editorials and now people came to see his shootings too. However, due to money shortage, the film did not complete. ( It was later made in 1919, but with different cast. V Shantaram made coloured Sairandhri in 1933 with Nimbalkar again).

Nimbalkar acted in many silent films like Baji Deshpande, Khazanchi (directed by Moti Gidwani- England returned), Lanka, Kismet (directed by Baburao Patel) etc etc. After the closure of Maharashtra F. Co., Nimbalkar was invited by V Shantaram to do Vishvamitra’s role in its first Talkie film ” Ayodhya ka Raja” -1932, in Hindi and Marathi. After this, he did Jalti Nishani-32, Sairandhri-33, Maya Machhindra, Sinhagadh etc.

After this, Nimbalkar went to Calcutta on invitation and worked in films made by Radha Films, Laxmi Studios, Devdatta films and New Theatres. From 1934 to 1938, he acted in 12 Hindi films. He was provided a Bungalow, car with driver, servants etc. His son studied in local school there. Returning to Bombay he worked as an assistant director to Keshavrao Dhaiber for film ‘Nandkumar’, made by his Jayashree Films. Next 2 years he shuttled between Calcutta and Bombay. He did King Dashrath’s role in Prakash films’ Bharat Milap-42 and Ramrajya-43 in this period.

He was invited by V Shantaram for acting in his first film under banner of Rajkamal- Shakuntala-43. Nimbalkar did the role of Kanva Muni in it. He later also acted in Jeevan yatra, Subah ka tara, Parchhain, Teen batti char rasta, Toofan aur Diya, Z Z Payal baje. Earlier he did Aapki sewa mein, prarthana,Nal Damayanti, Seedha Rasta, Gokul, Apna Ghar, Maharathi karna, Seeta Swayamvar. He worked in Pyasa, Mera Naam Joker, Amar Prem etc etc. From 1928 to 1970 he acted in over 250 films.

His wife Sushila was also educated and looked after his home and children. She never visited any sets in her life time. Nimbalkar died on 17-1-1973 at Kolhapur. (Thanks to an article in book Chandraat-चांदरात by बाबू मोशाय ).

Today’s song is sung by Shanta Apte, an unknown male and Chorus. This could be one of the early Fishermen songs.

Blog Day :

4300 Post No. : 15562

Today (26 april 2020) is the 4300th day for the blog.

This date happens to be Akshay Tritiya.

According to a whatsapp message shared in our WA group, it is on this day that Satyug and Treta Yug started. Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu, appeared on earth on this day. The gates pf Badrinath open today. River Ganga , as a result of Bhagirath’s tapasya, arrived on earth on this day. The war of Mahabharat ended today and with that the Dwapar yug came to an end.

What an important day our 4300th day in the blog has turned out to be. 🙂 Is it a coincidence ? People who are familiar with the various incidents involving the blog will know that some higher forces are guiding the blog and we are just the means.

For instance, when I look back at the beginning of the blog, I realise that the blog was started on 19 july 2008 which was important from the point of view of Indian calendars as well as Western calender. That date was the beginning of the month of Saawan, a month that is perhaps the biggest source of inspiration for Hindi movie songs. And that day happened to be the 201st day of the calendar year !

4300 days is a century day alright, but what can I write on this occasion. My creative juices do not flow as much as they did one decade back and so I was quite at a loss for ideas.

Then I thought of a far-fetched idea. Today is 4300th day after the blog started. Likewise there was a date that precedes the beginning of the blog by 4300 days. What date was that ? What was I doing on that day ?

My calculation shows that the 4300th day prior to 19 july 2008 gives us the date of 10 October 1996. It was Thursday, Ashwin , Krishn trayodashi, the day of Masik Shivratri, which is observed every month on Chaturdashi Tithi during Krishna Paksha, which fell on this date.

Where was I on that day ? I was at Hubli. I had spent two years one month at Hubli and I was on the verge of being transferred. To the best of my knowledge, my transfer order was not issued by this date. It was issued a few days later and I was transferred to Secunderabad.

Did any important event happen on that day ? On checking, I find that Australian cricket team has arrived India those days and they played a solitary test. This one off test was played in New Delhi and it started on this day, viz 10 october 1996 !

Guess what was the result ! India won the test in four days, winning by 7 wickets.

When I look back at those days, i find that my postings in those parts of the country had some interesting results on the polity of the nation. When I was allotted that zone of South Central Railway, no one in India even thought that a South Indian could ever be Indian PM. My posting in those parts changed all that.

My first posting was in Andhra Pradesh followed by Marathwada (Nizam area). The next general election saw Narsimha Rao, belonging to the same parts becoming PM of the nation. No one can deny that this event, which was a big freak event in Indian history changed the fate of India for the better.

My next posting was to Hubli. To make matters doubly interesting, the next general election saw H D Devegowda of Karnataka becoming the PM of India !

PM ship was not the only thing I was causing to happen. Cricket in those parts also saw reaching its zenith. Azharuddin of Hyderabad became Cricket captain of India and remained so for one decade.

After I joined at Hubli, Karnataka became cricketing powerhouse of India.

Take this test, that began on 10 october 1996 for example. There were as many as five Karnataka players in the playing XI. Four out of five bowlers were from Karnakata and together they claimed 16 out of 20 Australian wickets to fall.

The five Karnataka players who played in this test team were Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid, Venkatesh Prasad, Sunil Joshi and David Johnson.

While Kumble had made his debut six years ago, other four had made their debuts in 1996 itself. David Johnson in fact made his test debut in this test.

Please remember that Jawagal Srinath was not there in the playing XI !

In subsequent years, more Karnataka players played for India, namely Dodda Ganesh and Vijay Bhardwaj.

Having done my bit for Karnataka cricket, I went back to Hyderabad. As soon as I got posted there, VVS Laxman of Hyderabad made his test debut in November 1996. 🙂 Forget V V S Laxman, I ensured that even a mediocre player called Noel David got to play for India. 🙂

All these players may thank me later. I am in no hurry to get thanked. 🙂 Ye to mera farz thha.

Enough of those old memories. Let us now round up the discussion with a song.

While looking for a song to go with this writeup, I came across a song that was quite popular those days, though I never became aware of its details. Just now, I have become aware that this iconic song is from “Munimjee”(1972). This movie, produced and directed by Jugal Kishore for Jugal Kishore Productions, Bombay had Yogita Bali, Anil Dhawan, Ramesh Deo, Jayshree T, Junior Mehmood, Nazeer Hussain, Chandrashekhar, Maruti, Leela Mishra, R Wasti, Shahgul, Mohan Sherry, Ranjan, Narbad Shankar, Tulsi, James Bond Julian, Sudesh, Jagdeesh Shrotia, Deepak Thakur, Ratan Gaurang, Amrit Mahendra, Naginder, child artist Master Mohit, Parween Kotak, Nawal Kishore, Jameel, Saleem, Ali Raza, Balchand, Ravi, baby Manisha etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered. The song under discussion is definitely the only reason why this movie is remembered. Personally I only remembered the song, I was not even aware of the movie. 🙂

The sensuous song is picturised on Jayshree T and a sadly miscast Ramesh Deo as a frolicking in water song.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Lyrics of this song were supposedly penned jointly by Hasrat Jaipuri and Neeraj. This lyrics appears to be the work of Neeraj to me, though.

Usha Khanna is the music director.

January 7th is the birthday of Reena Roy the actress from the 70s and 80s. she was the one with an earthy look when she wore Indian clothes and could also carry western outfits without looking out of place. She made a successful pair with Jeetendra and Shatrughan Sinha. She also had a few successes with Sunil Dutt, Dharamendra and Kamalhaasan. She was a decent dancer too—one can’t forget her disco numbers in “Sanam Teri Kasam” and “Rocky”. She has been part of the star cast of Amitabh Bachchan’s “Naseeb” and “Andha Kanoon” but has never been paired opposite him romantically.
