Today’s song is from film Mera Imaan-1934.

I have been writing on old films and songs since 2012. Most of my posts are for films of the 30s and the 40s. However, I have also done innumerable posts on songs and films of period 1951 upto as latest as 2018. That is because, I believe, good music and good films exist in all eras. Only their percentage differs. Additionally, one’s likings generally decide what is ‘Good music’, based on his taste. Taste develops depending on one’s exposure. If I don’t listen to a song of 2019, how am I to conclude if it is good or bad ? Without analysing these factors, people are in a hurry to brand films and songs as good or bad.

Older generations like old films and old songs, mainly due to Nostalgia. Their memories are attached to these films/songs. It is said that old songs have a longer shelf life. But are not older people keeping old music alive ? As the times elapse, decade by decade, the older songs will be forgotten decade wise.

As on today, how many people enjoy songs of the 30’s ? To like these songs, the person has to be of the age of 90 to 100 years. Naturally, 30’s songs are out of favour now. To like songs of the 40’s, the person has to be in the age group of 70 to 85 or so. Hence today some songs of 40s are still popular. In another 10-15 years, songs of 30s and 40s may not be in circulation to that extent, because people who remembered and enjoyed them will be one.

This is Life. As Lord Tennyson said, “The old order changeth yielding place to New….”. Does that mean old films and songs have to be dumped now ? Absolutely not. On the contrary, they must be discussed elaborately, using information to make it available to the coming Generations. Towards this end, this Blog is playing an Yeoman’s role in preserving old and very old songs at one place. I am sure that History will thank Atul ji, for his Blog and for making old songs and highly credible information available to the coming Generations.

I have observed one thing here. During the period 2012 to 2016, for every old song of 30s and 40s, there used to be many comments from the readers and healthy discussions took place, emanating newer information about older films and songs. However, for the last 3 or 4 years, the comments have dried up so much that sometimes I start feeling if these posts are read by anyone at all ? Should I stop writing ?

Then I realise that the posts are written not for getting Claps and Bouquets, but to record History to preserve information and above all, with a noble intention to share knowledge, before it goes to Dust with the writer ! With this philosophy, I continue writing more enthusiastically.

Today’s film Mera Imaan-34 was a Stunt film, directed by Nagendra Majumdar. The songs were written by Dr. Dhaniram Prem. The name of the Music Director is not mentioned in HFGK. The cast of the film was Madhav Kale, Gauhar Karnataki, N.Majumdar, Athavale, Baburao Apte (brother of Shanta Apte), Madhukar Gupte, Miss Amirjaan etc etc.

Film’s director, who had also acted in it, was Nagendra Majumdar. He was the father of Music Director Ninu (Niranjan) Majumdar. Nagendra was born in a happy family in the year 1894 in Bombay. After his father died, “Pearl Dairy” established by his father ran very well doing good business. Suddenly, Nagendra’s wife fell seriously ill and despite taking her full care, she expired. Due to neglect of the Dairy in this period, Dairy also closed down.

Her shifted to Baroda and worked as a State Police Inspector. Later he worked as Watch and Ward Inspector in Baroda Railways. He left the job and started working as a hero in dramas of famous dramatist R.V.Desai. Heeralal, the owner of Laxmi Film Company, Bombay was impressed with his personality and took him to Bombay in 1926 to act in his silent films. Thus started his film career. In those days Silent films used to be completed within a month. He worked as a Hero in films of Laxmi, Jagdish and Imperial film companies.

In the same year, he directed a film ‘Paani mein aag’-1926, made by Royal Arts. Then came two more films made by Kaiser E Hind films. He also directed films of other companies. In all he directed 15 Silent films by 1932. By then, the Talkie had arrived. In the next 14 years he directed 12 Talkie films like – Ras Vilas-32, Sassi Punnu-32, Patit Pawan-33, mirza Sahibaan-33, Mera Imaan-34, Kala Wagh-34, Rangila nawab-35, Kimiyagar-36, Aaj ka Alladin aka Alladin II-36, Lehri lutera-37, Talwarwala-46 and Swadesh Sewa-46. When K L Saigal came to Bombay, Nagendra wanted to work with him. In film Tansen-43, he did the role of Tansen’s (Saigal’s) father and he was very happy.

His last 2 films came in 1946, but his health was not cooperating for quite few years. He gave up work and took rest. However, he suffered from paralysis and died on 22-8-1951. His son Ninu Majumdar worked in Bombay A.I.R. as head of Gujarati programmes, since 1937. By the time Nagendra died, Ninu had already started working as a Music Director.

As a Director, Nagendra had worked with the best of his times like, Master Vithal, Zubeida, Jillo, Billimorea brothers, Madhuri, Navinchandra, Durga Khote Jairaj, Sultana, Noorjehan sr and such luminaries of those days. He had worked for Ranjit, Imperial, Sharda, Jayant Desai films, Yadnik films etc etc.

Now let us know something about Dr. Dhaniram Prem – a Medical Doctor, who came into films like a Meteor for few years in the 30’s period. Dr.DHANIRAM “Prem” (Born 26 September 1904 – Died 10 November 1979) Lyricist, Story and Dialogue Writer in Hindi Films, an extraordinary person, was born on 26-9-1904 at Dariyapur, Aligadh, UP. He completed his MBBS from Bombay and then he went to UK for further studies under assistance from a charitable institution.
He came back, started his practice and repaid all loans first. From childhood he was fond of writing. He wrote several books and articles in National papers. From 1932 to 1936 he wrote Stories, dialogues and Lyrics for 14 films. In the first 2 years he wrote for only Ranjit studio films. Later he was a freelancer and wrote for others too. Gol Nishan aka Mark of Zoro-36 was the last film for which he wrote the Story and some songs..

Then he went to UK and practiced there, engaging himself in social causes. He was highly respected by the British. In 1964 he declared that he would contest the U.K. Prime Minister elections. A special pediatric ward was named after him in his honour while he was alive. He got several awards in U.K. for his excellent work. Indian government gave him Padmashree.

On 29-10-1979 he came to India and stayed in Delhi, but in two day’s time he met with a scooter accident and he died on 10-11-1979. His specialty was that in every film lyric, he used the word ‘Prem’ as a signature word. This trait was picked up later by some more Lyricists in Hindi films.

The hero of this film was Madhav Kale. Madhav Kale was born in Nashik in 1903. After his school education at Nashik, he joined Deccan college at Poona and passed Intermediate course. He was interested in playing in dramas, which was opposed by his mother. But he used to take part in dramas while in college. He was a good singer too. Wanting to join films, he sent applications to many companies. Saroj and sharda companies responded. He acted in several silent films like Mukti sangram, kanak kesari etc. He entered the Talkie films with Vikram Charitra-32, Mera Imaan-34 and Vishnu Bhakti-34. During this period, he got married in 1934.

He acted in 21 films. His last film was Gokul ka chor-59. He even directed one film, Sacha Sapna-42. He sang 13 songs in 7 films till 1942.
There is no information about him after this.

After writing this bio of Madhav kale, I came to know that after the films, Madhav went back to Nashik, where he was active in local politics. He became a Municipal Councillor, but lost Assembly elections, which he was very hopeful of. He died somewhere in 1980.

Today’s film Mera imaan-34 was based on a Marathi drama – Amche imaan (आमचे ईमान ), staged by Lalit Natak Samaj.

(I have collated information for this post from various sources like Listener’s Bulletins No. 40 of Feb-80 and No.145 of July 2010, HFGK, Sapnon ke Saudagar by Vithal Pandya, Silent films by Dr.Verma, Lost Treasures by kamlakar P. and my notes.)

Blog Day : 3556 Post No. : 14263

Today’s song is from a rare film of the early talkie era – ‘Baala Joban’ from 1934. The film was produced by Gandharva Cinetone – a company owned by Baburao Patel, who also directed this film.

The name of Baburao Patel is known to every lover of old Hindi films, but as a political commentator and a member of parliament, he is known to others. From the mid 1930s to the 80s he was a name synonymous with daredevil journalism, superb quality English writing and an active life style. Add to it several marriages and countless children by legitimate relationships and otherwise.

Baburao Pandurang Patil (he is a ‘Marathi Manoos’ and not a Gujarati) was born on 4-4-1904, in Masvan village, about 100 kms from Bombay, in Palghar district, in a Vanzara ( Banjara) community. His birth date is a strange confluence of numbers. The date is written as 4-4-4. Also, if we take the total of the digits written as 4-4-1904, it also adds up to the number 4 only.

When he was 4 year old, his mother passed away, and his father remarried. Subsequently the family shifted to Bombay. He was put in an English medium school. However he did not complete his matriculation. Lack of formal education always pinched him in life and he always respected highly educated people. He compensated by avidly reading books on philosophy, religion, politics and medicine, and gained an excellent command over spoken and written English language.

After doing many petty jobs, in 1926 he joined ‘Cinema Samachar’, a film magazine in Hindi, English and Urdu languages. He never knew when he entered the film world and became a script writer and a director. He established his own banner ‘Gandharva Cinetone’ and made 5 films as a director – ‘Kismat’ (a silent film from 1931), ‘Sati Mahananda’ (1933), ‘Maharani’ (1934), ‘Baala Joban’ (1934) and ‘Pardesi Sainyan’ (1935). Later in life, he directed two more films with wife Susheela Rani Patel as the heroine – ‘Draupadi’ in 1944 and ‘Gwaalan’ in 1946.

He joined DN Parkar, who owned New Jack printing press and who was publishing a house magazine ‘Prabhat’ for Prabhat Films. He then started his own magazine ‘FILM INDIA’ in April 1935, at a price of 4 annas (annual 3 rupees). From the very first issue, it was printed on high quality art paper. The cover image of the first issue featured a hand painting of actress and novelist Nalini Tarkhud, from film ‘Chandrasena’. There were many ads in the magazine, which promised ”honest journalism and constructive criticism”, though in later issues his criticism was incisive, insulting and quite daring. The cine industry feared his reviews, but readers adored him. Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, the famous writer and film director was also on his staff, and looked after the magazine when Baburao was travelling.

In all these twists and turns of life, his surname became Patel instead of Patil. He continued with it. He hurt many of his fellow film makers and actors. In one case, Shanta Apte is on record having gone to his office and beaten him with a whip, for his defamatory and derogatory remarks in the magazine.

Baburao married 3 times. His first marriage took place when he was studying. The second was with Shirin and the third was with his ex-secretary Sushila Rani Tombat – a very good looking Konkani singer and dancer.

Sidharth Bhatia has written a book titled ‘The Patels of Film India’. Noted author Manto also wrote extensively on Baburao. Bhatia writes – ‘Baburao had an eloquence and power of writing. He had a sharp humour, often barbed. There was a tough guy assertiveness with his venomous pen’. Baburao called Kalpana Kartik “pigeon busted”, Suraiya “Ugly”, and Dev Anand “effiminate”. Meena kumari was “. . .like an inverted shuttle cock”.

His magazine celebrated 50 years in 1985. Baburao became MP from Madhya Pradsh in 1967 on a ticket from the erstwile Jansangh party. One good quality of Baburao was that he was very kind to the poor and helpless people. Baburao Patel died on 4-9-1982.

The cast of the film ‘Baala Joban’ is listed as Padma Devi (a fixture in all Baburao’s films and a personal ‘special friend’), Mubarak, Gulab, Shirin Bano (she later married director Nanubhai Bhatt; Mahesh bhatt is her son), Madhukar Gupte, Nandu Khote (stage and silent film actor; father of Shubha Khote, brother in law of Durga Khote), Raja Pandit, Badri Prasad etc.

Besides acting in the film, Badri Prasad was also the music director of this film. It was his debut film as a music director. He is a wonder in the annals of Hindi film history. There is no other known person in the history who was an actor, lyricist, singer, music director, producer, director and a choreographer- all at same time in his career. He was simply unique. There was no one else like him.

As an actor he has appeared in 147 films. I remember him in ‘Albela’ (1951) as Bhagwan’s father, in ‘Bhaagam Bhaag’ (1954) as Shashikala’s uncle, as the missing father of Nalini Jaywant in film ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), and as the wheelchair confined father of Zahida in ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1968).

As a singer, he has sung 11 songs in 7 films. As a music director, he has 16 films to his credit – ‘Baala Joban’, ‘Vishnu Bhakti’, ‘Fashionable India’, ‘Romantic India’, ‘Zambo The Ape Man’, ‘Swaraaj Ke Sipaahi’, ‘Badhe Chalo’, ‘Yangrilla’, ‘Himalay Ki Beti’, ‘Double Cross’, ‘Zambo Ka Beta’, ‘Jhoothi Sharam’, ‘Anuradha’, ‘Vanmala’, ‘Madhusudan’ and ‘Zevar’.

He has one film to his credit as a lyricist, one as a producer and one as a director. As a choreographer he has done 52 films – from ‘Namoona’ (1949) to ‘Raaj Nartaki’ (1991).

Badri Prasad was born on 14-11-1902, in Benaras, UP. He started acting in Ramleela in the Bhelpura area in Benaras. From there he reached Calcutta, spent time at New Theatres and other studios and then landed in Bombay in 1932. His first film as actor was ‘Navchetan’ (1932).

Then he worked as an assistant to some composers and gave music independently first time to ‘Baala Joban’. His last film as a composer was ‘Zevar’ in 1942.

Then he continued his career, working in character roles. In 1949 he first did choreography in ‘Namoona’ (1949). After for the next 40 years he choreographed in till his last film.  His last film as an actor is ‘Dhoop Chhaon’ from 1997 – an active acting career that spans a period of 44 years.

As a composer many famous singers sang for him, like Amirbai  Karnataki, Noorjehan, Snehlata, Shyamsunder, Radharani, Sarla Devi, Ameena, Gauhar, E Rama Rao, Ramanand, Vatsala Kumthekar , Vimla Kumari, Iqbal Bibi etc.

Badriprasad was a learned man with command over Hindi, Urdu, English and Sanskrit. He wrote many plays for AIR also. He had a very big collection of books in his house. He was called Pandit Badriprasad,due to his expertise in Sanskrit. He was a man of few words, so his fabulous career remained unknown and he was known only as a character artist.

He had 2 daughters. One daughter Surekha Pandit remained with him till his death. Surekha too is an actress, doing bit roles in films – ‘Anupama’, ‘Mere Sanam’, ‘Nartaki’, ‘Gaban’, ‘Sant Gyaneshwar’, ‘Mere Huzur’, ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’, ‘Saat Hindustani’, ‘Do Dooni Chaar’, ‘Shehar Aur Sapna’, ‘Aarti’ etc. After marriage she was known as Surekha Parkar.

The singer for today’s song is Marutirao Pehelwan. He has also acted in this movie. He was originally from Kolhapur. In the early era of talkie films, many wrestlers joined film companies. They worked mostly in action films. Some such actors were Baburao Pehelwan (he was the hero of Master Bhagwan’s stunt films; later on worked as a stuntman with fight master Azim Bhai), Vasantrao Pehelwan (he was the one who brought Indurani from Poona to Bombay; was a popular villain in stunt films), Nandram Pehelwan (very popular in silent films but fell on bad days in the talkie era), Sadiq Pehelwan, Maane Pehelwan, Amir Khan Pehelwan etc.

Marutirao Pehelwan was different. He was handsome, tall, well built, could act and sing well. He was selected for the hero’s role in first Gujarati talkie film ‘Narsi Mehata’ (1932), made by Sagar Movietone. He acted as hero and other roles in about 40 films and sang songs too. His first Hindi film was ‘Lanka Dahan’ (1933) and last his film was ‘Apna Ghar’ (1942).

He married his co-star of many films – Tara (sister of Sitara Devi and Alaknanda). They left films and settled in Dhule, Maharashtra. Marutirao started a dairy business there. Famous dancer Gopi Krishna was their son.
[Author’s Note: From 1946, there was another comedian actor named Maruti, active in Hindi films. Initially, he too was billed as Marutirao, creating confusion. He was the father of comedienne Guddi Maruti.]

Today’s song is a Folk song of Rajasthan. It is in Marwari language. Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has uploaded this song as the ‘first Marwaari song in Hindi films”. On my email inquiry, he has kindly informed me that in this folk song, the wife is telling her husband (aali ja) that ‘bichhuda‘ (scorpion) has bitten her and she wants to go to her ‘peehar‘ (father’s house) now. I am very much thankful to him for this rare song.
