“Kurbaani”(1943) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Durga Khote, Ishwarlal, Vasanti, Kaushalya, Gulab, Kamla, Gope, Majid, Sheikh, Dharpure etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it.

One song from “Kurbaani”(1943) has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Kurbaani”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kaushalya and Ishwarlal. Wali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that the singers of this song acted in the movie as well, one can assume that the song was picturised on Kaushalya and Ishwarlal themselves.

Like the first song from the movie, this song too is a delightful song to listen to. This song has retained its freshness even today nearly 80 years after the song was created. Clearly a song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

It is a poignant rendition of a short 4 sha’ir ghazal. The following three songs from this movie are posted in the blog out of total 7 songs.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947).

The year 1947 is a reminder not only for the Independence of India, but also for the upheaval that took place in the film industry that time. More than in any other industry in India, Muslims were plentiful, working in different sections and departments of the Hindi film industry. majority of them migrated to the newly formed Muslim Nation of Pakistan. This did create a lot of disturbance in the film industry. Right from the beginning of 1947, there were signs that soon the British would leave India – after dividing it into two Nations, India and Pakistan. When the month and date became known for the Partition, there was a great hurry among the filmmakers to complete their projects on hand and in process, compromising many factors like quality of the film, number of songs and such other things.

This resulted in the record number of films made in 1947 alone – 181 Hindi films and about 100 films in other languages in India. This was a record which remained unbroken till 1985, when 187 Hindi films were made. Thus from 1931 to 1985, this record remained unbroken for more than 50 years ! Obviously, this resulted in a big compromise on quality to achieve quantity with many films produced half heartedly. Most or rather many films made in 1947 remained obscure, unheard of and many flopped due to poor quality. Actually only few films were released in 1947, because many films were released in 1948 and 1949, with some films being released in Pakistan too.

Did you ever hear about films ‘Amar Asha’, ‘Angoorbala’, ‘Attention’, ‘Barrister’, ‘But Tarash’, ‘Chalte Chalte’, ‘Chandrahas’, ‘Daghabaaz Dost’, ‘Dehati’, ‘Ek Kadam’, ‘Gaurav’, ‘Giribala’, ‘Heera’, ‘Intezar Ke Baad’, ‘Jhalak’, ‘Jurmana’, ‘Khaufnak Aankhen’, ‘Lalaat’, ‘Mangalsutra’, ‘Moti’, ‘Sewagram’, ‘Stage Girl’, ‘Tohfa’ or ‘Utho Jaago’ ? Of course not all films were below standards. Some of the landmark films were also made in 1947, like ‘Shehnai’, ‘Mirza Sahiban’ and Parwana etc. However by and large the picture was like this only.

Today’s film ‘Dekho ji’ was also one such film. The producer/director,MDs, hero heroine and most actors of this film migrated to Pakistan, one after another in few years’ time. The film was made by The Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay. The Producer/ Director was Wali saheb. There were 2 MDs, namely Tufail Faruqui and Sabir Hussain There were 11 songs in the film but only few songs are available on YouTube. The cast consisted of Mumtaz Shanti, Anjum, A Shah, Haroon, Khatoon, Afzal, Dilshad, Mintobai, Gulnar etc.

When we talk of partition and migration of artistes from one country to another, only the famous and the well known names are taken. There were hundreds of small-time actors, directors, lyricists, composers, instrument players, chorus singers, technicians etc who were not known to many and also had migrated for various reasons. The other day I was reading a book, ‘Who’s Who: Music in Pakistan’ written by A Shaikh and M Shaikh. In this book I found several names of singers, composers, lyricists and above all instrument players, who shifted to Pakistan.

It is a well known fact that in olden times, the instrument players, chorus singers and orchestra players had personal attachments and preferences for particular composers and vice versa too. That is why when Ghulam Haider went back to Lahore after partition, he was extremely happy to meet some of his orchestra players in Lahore. In one of the interviews he had said that he felt like he was having a family reunion. He arranged a get together for all those people.

In the Hindi film industry, many partition immigrants came back to dominate and transform the scene here. Filmmakers like Sippy, BR Chopra, Yash Chopra, Ramanand Sagar-all India’s most successful commercial producers were also partition immigrants. Once heavily dominated by Muslim film makers, writers, actors and composers, the Hindi film industry changed drastically after the partition, only to again be dominated after 60-70 years !

Many successful film personalities had gone to Pakistan between 1947 and 1950, including producers like Mehboob, Kardar and Shaukat Hussain Rizvi – who went to Lahore with capital to buy the Hindu-owned studios. Prominent producers of Lahore like Dalsukh Pancholi and Roop K Shorey were forced to sell their studios and properties for a song and flee for their life to India after riots in Pakistan post partition. Some Muslim artistes returned to India after a few years when they realized that Lahore film industry had largely collapsed due to exodus of prominent Hindu producers.

The crucial role played by films in Indian culture could be seen in the refugee camps of Delhi where Hindi movies were shown for free for two hours every evening to all. ‘Film India’ magazine commented that there were more than 15,000 refugees from Sindh and Punjab in Bombay. It also suggested that good looking and educated women can be employed in films. Due to polarization, there was much inflammatory writing published in this magazine at that time.

However, as before and always Bombay film industry maintained its secular culture. A big rally, led by Durga Khote and Prithviraj Kapoor was taken out on 2-10-1947 in Bombay. The entire film industry had joined in it and slogans like ‘Hindu-Muslim bhai bhai’ etc were shouted in the rally. Similarly, to pacify over one lakh refugees from East Pakistan (now Bangaladesh) in Calcutta, film artistes had led a rally in Calcutta at the same time.

The famous Music Historian James McConnachie said, ”As India marched into an uncertain future – in 1947 – film songs offered something unique: they helped creating a sense of belonging to One Nation, something that the divisive extremist right wingers in India, chanting ”Hindustan for Hindus” could never achieve. When Hindi film singers sang, nobody cared that Mohd Rafi was a Muslim or Lata was a Hindu Brahmin. Its great music bridged the gap between Hindus and Muslims, much better than any Politician (including Gandhi and Nehru) ever could achieve.” -World Music-The Rough Guide,Vol II,pp 106,pub.1990 by Harper.

Like many top class composers who migrated to Pakistan, there were some small time or recently started composers who also left, like Inayat Hussain (only 1 Punjabi film ‘Kamli’), Fateh Ali Khan (2 films – ‘Aaina’ (1944) and ‘Director’ (1947), Tufail Farooqi (2 films – ‘Sona Chandi’ (1946) and ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947)). Inayat Hussain of course became a legend in Pakistan.

Today we will talk about TUFAIL FAROOQI.

Tufail was born in Taran Taaran, Amritsar, Punjab, on 10-7-1918. After taking musical lessons from Ustad Abdul Waheed Khan for several years, he joined AIR, Lahore. He also worked with many composers. Finally, he got his first film, ‘Sona Chaandi‘ in 1946. Out of 12 songs of the film, he composed 10 songs and 2 were composed by DC Dutt. In this film Tufail gave an opportunity to a young but promising newcomer, who was struggling to get established as a playback singer – Mohammed Rafi. Rafi got 4 songs in this film and he was overjoyed at this break.

Later Tufail gave music to his second film- ‘Dekho Jee’ (1947). Here too he composed 6 songs and the other 5 were composed by composer Sabir Hussain. Actually, Sabir Hussain was his assistant and just to encourage him, Tufail credited these songs to him.

After partition,Tufail migrated to Pakistan along with family, with Sabir Hussain in tow, but had to struggle hard there too. His first film was ‘Barkha’ in 1953. Tufail gave music to 37 films, mostly Punjabi films and less Urdu. His film, ‘Bahadur Kissan’ (1970) had a song – ”Mera Sona Des Kisaan Da”, sung by singer Masood Rana. This tune was a blatant direct copy of the song ”Ye Desh Hai Veer Jawaanon Ka” from ‘Naya Daur’ (1957). The Pakistani song became a tremendous hit, not only with the Punjab farmers but also was played on Radio and TV often.

Tufail Farooqi’s sister was Master Ghulam Haider’s first wife (Umrao Zia Begum was his second wife), from whom he had a son – Saleem Haider. Later Saleem joined Pakistan Army and rose upto the rank of Lt. General. He retired in 2000.

Tufail worked till early 80s. He married the famous Pak singer Pappu Pukhraj in 1953. He died in Lahore on 25-3-1988.

Another actor in the cast, who was quite a popular comedian those days was A Shah aka Aziz Shah. He was born in 1910, at Sialkot. He did not have much schooling, except primary education at Lyallpur and at Islamia High School, Lahore. Due to his rich and sweet voice, he used to recite Holy Quran, on farmaish. He wrote poetry also.

He joined Saroj Movietone in 1930, under Mohan Bhavnani as an artiste at Rs. 40 per month. He acted in ‘Shakuntala’ (1931) and ‘Gul Bakavli’ (1932). He had to take a 2 year break, due to an illness. Back in Bombay, he worked in the film ‘Fidai Tohid’ (1934) as a hero. He gave music to the film ‘Gunehgar’ (1936). He wrote dialogues for ‘Mother India’ (1938) and ‘Daughters of India’ (1939). His first comic role was in Ranjit’s ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1935). He became famous with his role in Punjabi film ‘Kurmai’ (1941).

His best role came in ‘Sharada’ (1942), as Munshi Udharchand Shikarpuri. This was repeated by him in the film ‘Keemat’ (1946). Some of his 11 films were, ‘Dhandora’ (1941), ‘Armaan’ (1942), ‘Sukh Dukh’ (1942), ‘Kanoon’ (1943), ‘Sanjog’ (1943), ‘Geet’ (1944) and ‘Ek Din Ka Sultan’ (1945). After 1947, he stopped acting and wrote lyrics in films like ‘Raat Ki Rani’ (1949), ‘Namoona’ (1949) and ‘Ek Teri Nishani’ (1949). After this he migrated to Pakistan and we have no further information about him anymore. Baburao Patel of ‘Film India’ magazine was his fan.

We do not know who sang today’s song, since the HFGK does not mention name of the singer.

C Ramchandra – 40th remembrance day anniversary on 05/01/2022
—————————————————————————
Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 7
—————————————————-

Rafi sahab sang 80 + songs under C. Ramchandra, starting from 1946 to 1977 beginning with Bachchon ka Khel(1) and Safar(2) in 1946. This is followed by 6 songs in ‘Saajan’(1947), two each in “Khidki’ and ‘Nadiya ke Paar’ in 1948.

Two of the most melodious Solos, which made both Rafi sahab and C. Ramchandra , famous have seen the light of day by this time. ‘These are ‘keh ke bhi na aaye tum, ab chhupne lage taare’ in Safar 1946 and ‘ham ko tumhaara hi aasra tum hamaare ho na ho’ in Saajan 1947. Geeta Dutt, Lalita Deulkar and Shamshad Begum feature in group songs and duets with Rafi in all these films till 1949.

Then there is Duniya 1949 with Suraiyya, where Rafi sahab sings two duets and two solos.

‘Namoona’ 1949 has the first ever Rafi-Lata Duet (tadpa ke mujhe ab chhod diya ) under C. Ramchandra.

There are no more solos for Rafi Sahab, till ‘Insaaniyat’ 1955, where Rafi Sahab is part of 11 songs including 5 solos, out of total 17 songs in the film. The journey continued with films like Lutera 1955, ‘Nausherwan-e-adil’ in 1957, ‘Amar Deep’ in 1958, ‘Paigham’ in 1959 and ‘Sarhad’ in 1960. Here they both take a break from each other, I mean C. Ramchandra and Rafi Sahab, till 1970 where they work together for “Rootha na karo”. Lastly Rafi Sahab sings teams up with C. Ramchandra in 1977 for the film ‘Akbar Saleem Anarkali’ where he sings 3 duets with the south Indian legend P. Susheela.

The association seems inconsistent, with gaps in between, and appears inadequate. But by 1960 Rafi Sahab had made his name as the foremost playback singer and C. Ramchandra’s career was petering out. The fact that C. Ramchandra himself was a singer of repute, could have been one of the reasons for there being so less songs in the 50’s decade. While Rafi sahab was giving block buster musical scores for established and non-established composers through 50’s, C. Ramchandra was also making great music with films like ‘Anarkali’, Shabistaan, Albela, Azaad and Navrang etc.

The song I am presenting in this tribute post on remembrance day for C. Ramchandra is a duet song from the film ‘Saanwariya’ 1949. Lalita Deulekar is the co-singer in this song, which is written by P. L. Santoshi. I have counted 30+ songs written by P. L. Santoshi in the excel sheet of Rafi songs, between 1948 to 1968. With Lalita Deulkar, there are total 8 songs including 2 group songs.

Here is the total no. of songs to the credit of all three, composer, lyricist and co singer and the songs posted in the blog:

Artist Songs in blog Songs in HFM career
C Ramchandra(1942-1978) 556 110 movies(907)
P L Santoshi 212 664
Lalita Dewoolkar 34

The following 6 songs from Sanwariya (1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date of post
Preet kiye pachhtaayee re saanwariya 30 september 2012
Duaa dene waalon hamen do duaayen 2 October 2012
Jaani re hum jaani re 22 January 2013
Chale gaye angrez english gaana nahin achcha 5 May 2014
Oonchi neechi hai sadak ghoda jaaye na bhadak 29 July 2016
Bedard zamaane mein dekho…Duniya waalon dil khol hanso 20 December 2017

The present song in 7th out of ten songs in the film. Only audio link is available, but from the lyrics it appears to be a ‘holi’ song. Quite a spirited song with chorus and the chhed-chhad mode, which is usually the case with holi songs.

While writing down the lyrics, I had to take the help of head phones, as this is a very old song, almost 73 years old. The audio quality is sometimes very poor, and this song record is the same. But surprisingly or not so surprisingly, its Rafi sahab’s voice which is crystal clear and stands out as the humanely divine sound, in the portions he sings alone and along-with chorus also. He sounds more amazing in the last stanza ‘kahat kabir……’ part and the inevitable alaap in between.

If anyone present in that recording studio in 1948-49, is still alive today, surely could not have forgotten the sound of the echoing divinity of the singing voice, where it seems as if the primitive microphone in front of Rafi sahab is much too hungry to absorb his powerful voice. Or was the technique for echo in sound recording was in use back then?

I will hold this thought, till I find another amazing rendition by Rafi Sahab.

* Today’s song is the song five mentioned above. Though HFGK and link titles mention this track as ‘dukhiyaa ke dukh hare hain’ , I think this needs to be corrected as ‘duniya ke dukh hare hain tumne’.

(Also, the song number three is mentioned in HFGK as ‘ae ji zindagi hai roshan’ but these words do not appear in the song ‘khushi ki ye ghadiyaan mubaarak mubaarak’. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this song please.)

Let us now listen to the today’s song and pay our tributes to music director Husnlal on his remembrance anniversary today. Today’s song is sung by Lalita Dewoolkar, and lyrics are by P.L. Santoshi.

As mentioned above music for the today’s song is composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

So many benchmarks and such milestones, no one has set them better than Rafi sahab. The way he touched the lives of each and every urdu/hindi listeners heart and minds, is unmatched and unprecedented, never to be repeated in human civilization. His voice breached the boundaries of languages and cultures too. And his fans following seems to increase over the decades.

His contribution towards the cohesion and integration of the post independent and partitioned India, is unaccountable. No one can even begin to count and record, how many hearts, his voice and his renditions of patriotic songs, religious songs of different belief systems touched. It is no less than what is the contribution of Lata Mangeshkar of Sachin Tendulkar towards the Indian national identity and our ability to hold our head high in front of the world as Indians. There were visionaries, far sighted leaders that gave direction to this country and it was a recognition of Rafi sahab’s calibre and his potential as a voice, to which the nation could relate to and identify, that made Nehru invite Rafi sahab to sing the song “Bapu ki amar kahaani’ at a time of such national turmoil.

He was the voice of pathos, the hope of values, the epitome of ‘watan parasti’, a cultural mixture of a binary, where he could keep his soul pure and his singing from the heart, in a country, which needed his punjabi large heartedness. And foremost of his qualities, which still oozes out of his resonating voice, singing praises to the hero’s love interest, singing songs of devotion and story-telling, reciting ghazals of classic and modern poets, in his honied sometimes velvety and sometimes silky and yet rustic, when the situation required, is his humbleness, sharaafat and purity of intentions.

During the last one and half year many things have changed in this world. At the peak of these changes, someone thought to make a video of the deserted places of a historical / romantic city of Venice. Its streets canals boats, by-lanes and loggias totally bereft of humans, as a backdrop to Rafi Sahab’s rendition of the final stanza of this iconic song, recorded in a live show. I have seen other live show renditions of the same song, where Rafi Sahab is giving this same unbelievably fantastic performance. The clip was widely shared on whatsapp, where I first saw it. The video is available on youtube, with the title “Mahal udaas aur galiyaan sooni”.

Live show cilps are given below:
Mahal udaas aur galiyaan sooni – live singing
Full song “O duniya ke rakhwaale” live

Both the above renditions and the recording in the doordarshan show, make it clear that, this was definitely a song, which was a regular in the riyaaz list of Rafi sahab. To sing it so consistently with the same dedication and voice for 3 decades is a miracle and yet not a miracle. Also, in the stage shows he is singing this ‘raag darbari’ bhajan maintaining the higher octave through-out, and playing the harmonium at the same time. The special prolonged aria of the last stanza was not part of original film song, but it was made so especially for the live shows on stage. It was the discipline and simplicity, which makes such great artists immortal.

I am giving here a list of some of the iconic songs rendered by Rafi sahab which I find unforgettable.
1. Basti basti parbat parbat gaata jaaye banjara
2. Yeh zindagi ke mele duniya mein kam na honge
3. Ramaiyya wasta waiyya

18. Tu ganga ki mauj main jamuna ka dhara
19. O duniya ke rakhwale
20. Tu kahan yeh bataa iss nasheeli raat mein
21. Aap ne yaad dilaaya to mujhe yaad aaya

39. Taarif karun kya uss ki jis ne tujhe banaaya
40. Nafrat ki duniyaa ko chhod ke pyaar ki duniya mein
41. Kya huaa teraa wadaa woh qasam woh iraada

43. Sukh ke sab saathhi dukh mein na koyi

102. Duniya na bhaaye mohe ab to bulaa le charonon mein
103. Ae dil hai mushkil jeena yehaan zara hat ke zara bach ke yeh hai bambai meri jaan

I have missed scores of my personal favourites in the above list. For example, I have mentioned very few duets and few group songs.

The song I am presenting on this memorial day is from the 1946 film Sona Chandi. Tufail Faarooqui is the music director and Wali Sahab. This is a duet with Shamshad Begum having some conversation and the words in English “I am sorry”. This reminds me of an “once upon a time” famous quote; Angez chale gaye, yeh sorry aur thank you chhod gaye. Quite contrary to this saying, I found on my visit to UK, that the British never left it here, they gifted the etiquette’s (a legacy) to us and continued to make them their ‘takiya kalaam’.

It is true, the denizens of the old blighty are so polite that these words keep falling from their lips, what ever is the situation or occasion. They have kept quite and listened to Shashi Tharoor making those demands. I have every hope that the apology is a given. It’s taking its time, but it should be on the way. More on this topic in another post, as here we have a birthday event to celebrate.

This is short and sweet duet song with the nok-jhonk, which became more prevalent in the 60’s songs. But this is a 40’s song, making clear, the potential of a powerful voice which was to become a backbone of future playback singing.

My list of iconic Rafi songs is incomplete, so the readers and commentators can help me complete the list.

Today’s song is from the film Badi Maa-1945.

No wonder that the word Maa is one of the favorites of our film makers. There were 5 films called Maa and its varieties like Badi Maa, Chhoti Maa. Then there were Maa films with Baap, Beta, Beti, Behen,Biwi, Mamata, Aanchal, Pyaar, Aansoo, Saugandh, Shakti, and Qasam. Additionally, Durga and Santoshi Maa were also made. Almost 30 films about Maa at one place in the index book. I did not try other letters of the alphabet to see more films with the word maa – like Naani Maa etc !

BADI MAA-1945 was a film of Prafull Pictures of Master Vinayak (Father of actress Nanda).It was produced and directed by Master Vinayak with music by K.Datta or Datta korgaonkar or D.P.Korgaonkar.The story was by V.S.Khandekar,noted Marathi writer,who was ,later,the First Marathi recipient of Gyanpeeth Award for his novel “YAYAATI”.The lyrics were by Anjum Pilibhiti,Zia Sarhadi and Raja Badhe,who was a noted Marathi poet.

Master Vinayak was forced to produce this war effort movie to save his company,because the Govt. At that time desperately needed public support for their war efforts.Such pictures were given grants for production also.if they refused,the consequences were dire. The word Badi Maa,in this film meant Motherland-India.

Today’s song is one of Lata’s early songs in Hindi films. Being brought up in a Marathi atmosphere, initially, she had to struggle very hard to learn Hindi / Urdu word pronunciations, which, like a good learner, she picked up fast. Entering Film world was not so easy, but Master Vinayak played a vital role in establishing her in films or at least in bringing her to the notice of other stalwarts, because he himself died quite early in 1947 itself.

After Deenanath Mangeshkar’s death, Lata was adopted by Master Vinayak. In 1942, vinayak directed his last film for navyug Films “Pahili Mangalagaur”. he gave a small role and one song to her in that film. Then he, with the help of friend Vasant joglekar got her a song in Marathi film ” Kiti Hasaal’. However it was removed from the film before its release. In 1943, Vinayak launched his own Prafulla Pictures and madr 6 movies – 3 Marathi and 3 Hindi.

In the film Gajabhau-44 he gave Lata a hindi song. Then in the film Subhadra, Lata got 3 songs. In 1945, he directed ‘Badi Maa’. Lata and Asha got acting roles and Lata got 2 songs. In Jeevan yatra-46, she sang one song. And finally in 1947, Lata sang her first Hindi playback song in the film ” Aap ki Sewa mein”.

Vinayak died almost immediately after our Independence, but he had done the basic ground work to give a beginning to Lata’s career. Lata was later helped by Ghulam Haider, Khemchand Prakash and Anil Biswas. Then she never looked back.

The story of the film Badi Maa-45 was written by V.S.Khandekar. In those days there were Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi and Marathi writers with almost all film companies to assist in stories and dialogues. V. S. Khandekar was a very popular and famous writer in Marathi.

Vishnu Sakharam Khandekar (11 January 1898 – 2 September 1976) was a Marathi writer from Maharashtra. He was the first Marathi author to win the prestigious Jnanpith Award.

Khandekar was born on 11 January 1898 in Sangli, Maharashtra. His father was a munsif (a subordinate official) in Sangli principality where he spent his childhood and completed his early education. In his early life, he was interested in acting in movies and staged various dramas during school days.
After passing his matriculation exam in 1913, Khandekar joined Fergusson College, Pune. In 1920, he started working as a school teacher at a school in Shiroda.

Khandekar’s writing career began in 1919 when Shrimat Kalipuranam, his first work, was published, and continued to 1974 when his novel Yayati was published.

In 1920, Khandekar started working as a school teacher in a small town, Shiroda, in the present-day Sindhudurg district of the Konkan region in Maharashtra. He worked in that school until 1938. While working as a teacher, Khandekar produced in his spare time abundant Marathi literature in various forms. In his lifetime, he wrote sixteen novels, six plays, around 250 short stories, 50 allegorical stories, 100 essays, and over 200 critiques. He worked and founded Khandekari alankar in Marathi grammar.

In 1941, Khandekar was elected as the president of the annual Marathi Sahitya Sammelan (Marathi Literary Conference) in Solapur. In 1968, the Government of India honoured him with a Padma Bhushan award in recognition of his literary accomplishments. Two years later, he was also honoured with the Sahitya Akademi Fellowship of the Indian Sahitya Akademi. in 1974, he was awarded the Jnanpith Award, country’s highest literary recognition, for his novel Yayati. Shivaji University at Kolhapur, Maharashtra conferred on him an honorary degree of D.Litt. In 1998, the Government of India issued a commemorative postage stamp in his honour.

Khandekar’s novel Yayāti (ययाति) received three prestigious awards: A Maharashtra State Award (1960), a Sahitya Akademi Award (1960), and a Jnanpith Award (1974).

Films on his novels were made in Marathi (5), Hindi (3 – Chhaya-36, Jwala-38 and Amrut-41) and in Telugu and Tamil (1 – Dharm Patni-41). He wrote stories, lyrics and dialogues for Marathi and Hindi films too.

Here is his Filmography as per the Indian Cinema Encyclopedia-

1936: Chhaya (Writer, Lyricist), 1938: Dhruva (Lyricist), Jwala (Writer, Lyricist), Jwala (Writer, Lyricist), 1939: Devata (Writer, Lyricist, Screenplay, Dialogue), Mera Haq (Writer, Lyricist), Sukhacha Shodh (Writer, Lyricist), 1940: Lagna Pahave Karun (Writer, Lyricist, Screenplay), 1941: Amrit, Amrit (Writer, Lyricist), Dharma Patni (Writer, Story), Dharmapatni (Writer, Story), Sangam (Writer, Lyricist), 1942: Sarkari Pahune, Tuzhach (Writer, Lyricist), 1943: Mazhe Bal (Writer, Lyricist), 1945: Badi Maa, 1946: Subhadra, 1948: Mandir, 1953: Soneri Savli, 1960: Antaricha Diva (Writer, Lyricist), 1961: Mansala Pankh Astaat (Writer, Lyricist, Story, Screenplay, Dialogue), 1962: Sunbai (Lyricist)

The cast of the film Badi Maa was Noorjahan, Ishwarlal, Yaqub, Jog,Meenakshi, Sitara, Leela Mishra, Damuanna, Lata Mangeshkar and others. The story of the film Badi Maa-45 was…..

In Dinapur,Durgadas(Salvi) was worried about his son Dinesh(Ishwarlal) studying in London,due to attacks by Germans.Moneylender Ghanashyam(Girish)agrees to write off his loan,if his daughter Usha(Meenakshi) marries his son Rajendra(Yakoob).But Rajendra and Mona(Sitara Devi) are Japanese spies in India.When Durgadas refuses ,his house is confiscated,sold and he is on road. Ghanashyam’s daughter Hema(Noorjehan) does not like this as she loves Dinesh.Dinesh comes back to find father poor and destitute.SuddenlyJapanese attack the village and Rajr=endra helps them .Usha urges Rajendra to fight for Badi Maa i.e. Motherland and dies due to bullets.Rajendra repents and saves his village,along with Dinesh.In this,Rajendra dies for the motherland or Badi Maa.

Dinesh and Hema marry.

Let us now listen to this song by Lata, Meenakshi Shirodkar and chorus.

4900 Post No. : 16704

I had earlier shared a song from the movie ‘Himmat-1970’. The title of the song is ‘himmat kare insaan to kya kar nahin saktaa’. This song was posted on 03.11.2020. I had mentioned in this song-post that the song was noted by me long back i.e., in 2013.

Around the same time, I came across today’s song which is ‘agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya kar nahin saktaa’. This song is from the ‘1942’ film ‘Jungle Princess’. Today I am presenting this song.

“Jungle Princess-1942’ was directed by Homi Wadia for ‘Wadia Movietone, Bombay’.

It had Nadia, Radharani, Baby Madhuri, Shahzadi, John Kawas, Sardar Mansoor, Dalpat, Hari Shivdasani, Jal Khambata, Mitthu Miyaan, M.K. Hasan, Jiji Bhai, Gulshan Sufi and others.
As mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950) this movie had eight songs. All these eight songs were penned by Pandit Indra. Music for this film was composed by Madhavlal D. Master.

Following is the list of songs of this movie.

S. No Song-Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chali ri naav tu chal aage chal ri chal Gulshan Sufi, Mehdi Raza
02 Jo koyi isko peeve naam uska door hove ? (Not mentioned in HFGK) 01.03.2013

07 O mainaa mastaani, o pinjre ki raani Radharani, chorus 25.04.2013

We can see from the above table that four songs from this movie ‘Jungle Princess-1942’ have been posted on the blog. All these four songs were covered in ‘2013’. In other words, eight years have passed since without any further addition to the tally of songs in this movie.

Today’s song is the fifth song from this movie to be presented here.

Today’s song is sung by Sardar Mansoor. Lyrics are by Pandit Indra and music is composed by Madhavlal Damodar Master.

Let us listen to today’s song which consists of some good ‘Urdu’ poetry.


Song-Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya kar nahin sakta (Jungle Princess)(1942) Singer-Sardar Mansoor, Lyrics-Pandit Indra, MD-Madhulal Damodar Master

Lyrics

Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta
Jo hai mard e zamaana
Aafaton se darr nahin sakta
Jo hai mard e zamaana
Aafaton se darr nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta
Agar taqdeer ki mehfil mein
Ho taqdeer ka saathi
Agar taqdeer ki mehfil mein
Ho taqdeer ka saaqi
Wo pyaala kaun sa pyaala hai ke
Jo bhar nahin sakta
Wo pyaala kaun sa pyaala hai ke
Jo bhar nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta

Sadaakat jiska jeena hai
Shaahaadat jiska marna hai
Sadaakat jiska jeena hai
Shaahaadat jiska marna hai
Wo mar jaata hai lekin
Naam uska mar nahin sakta
Wo mar jaata hai lekin
Naam uska mar nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta

Tu apni raah chalta ja
Na darr thhokar se aye bande
Khuda jiska sahaara hai
Khuda aa jiska sahaara hai
Bashar wo gir nahin sakta
Khuda jiska sahaara hai
Bashar wo gir nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta
Agar insaan mein himmat ho to kya
Kar nahin sakta

This article is the 16700th article in the blog.

Blog Day :

4898 Post No. : 16700

Publishing the blog century post brings some anxious moments. One has to worry about the song that should be used for the occasion. It also calls for more efforts than usual as far as writeup is concerned.

But once the century post is published, one tends to relax for the next 99 songs. The next century post occasion will not arrive for many months, so I can relax- this is the usual feeling. But sooner or later, even those “many months” are over and yet another blog century occasion presents itself.  🙂

That occasion is upon us. And this post is post number 16700th for the blog.

I have discussed it in the past that I begin to worry about the century post only at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. When the time for worrying arrived, I found that I had no idea what song to discuss. Then I remembered that I sometimes come across rare songs and I note down their details, hoping to use these songs at special occasions. These details are stored away in text files titled “rare songs”, “rare songs latest”, “rarest songs” etc.

I located these files and realised that I had several songs in these files. I checked them up and finalised a song. Just when I sat down to prepare a writeup, I found out that the song had already been used up on a past occasion. So I had to switch over to another song.

The song that I have chosen as the 16700th song for the blog is from “Pagdandi”(1947). This movie was directed by Ramnarayan Dube. The movie had Akhtar, Padma, Gyani, Kalawati, G N Butt, Om Prakash, Shyam Lal, Durga Mota Sudarshan, Raza Meer etc in it.

The movie had ten rare songs in it. HFGK does not contain details of the singers for any songs. Only the record numbers of the songs are available. That is how rare these songs are.

However, the blog has so far covered as many as eight songs from the movie.

This song, the ninth song from “Pagdandi”(1947), like other songs does not give details of the singer. But the uploader mentions the singer as Munawwar Sultana. Lyrics are by D N Madhok. Music is composed by Khursheed Anwar.

The song is a fun song to listen to. It is a “Sainyya bhaye kotwal ab dar kaahe ka” genre of song, which was fairly popular in Hindi movies those days. I remember “Daroga jee”(1949) containing several songs of this genre. In these songs, the lady would tell everyone that her beau had become a big shot government employee and now others better start paying respect and tributes to the lady. Sainyya becoming “kotwal” (read policeman) was preferred the most. Next preference was for sainyya to become patwaari (which is the case here).

In all these songs, others would be warned to behave themselves, else “thhaane mein rapat” may follow.  🙂 In this case, one is threatened with “bhaari jurmaana”.  🙂 Such misuse of powers vested with officials was considered normal those days. 🙂

In small remote places, even today small time policemen and government officials wieid considerable influence over public. If they go to the local market, the shopkeepers treat them as VIPs. Some of them, mainly policemen do not even pay for stuff they take from shops. Kids who watch all this dream of becoming policemen. People who are a bit more aware dream of becoming IAS or IPS, but such people are not found in these remote places.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Only one more song from the movie is left to be covered. But that record number of that song “Rukhsat hua jo god ka paala” is not mentioned, which suggests that this song was only there in the movie and its records were not issued. So unless the prints of the movie miraculously become available, this tenth and final song from the movie is not available and has been lost.

With this song, we reach blog post number 16700. This is the 167th blog century for the blog. Now we are just three centuries away from 17000 mark. At the present rate, we should be there in another six months or so.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. The continous support, patronage and encouragemnent that we get from one and all is the fuel that drives this musical bandwagon. I take this opportunity to thank one and all. I take this opportunity to especially thank our regulars whose contributions are enriching the blog and taking it to newer heights. Here is hoping that we keep reaching many more landmarks in the times to come.

Songs from Artiste Name Films….Second Season….No. 6

Today’s song is from the film Shakuntala-1943.

After leaving Prabhat Film Co. in 1942, V.Shantaram came to Bombay. He had definite plans for his future. But till the right time ( read-arrangement for finance) was ripe, he joined the Films Division of the Government. Later, when the arrangements were in place, he bought a studio with extra land to start his own Rajkamal Kala Mandir. He selected this name to keep his parents’ names with him. Father was RAJaram and Mother was KAMALabai. The first film he made here was “Shakuntala” The film was based on ” अभिज्ञान शाकुन्तलम ” written by Kavi Kalidas in the 3rd century. It depicts the story of Shakuntala- daughter of sage Vishwamitra and apsara Menaka. It is about her love with king Dushyant.

Dewan Sharar had adapted the story from the original ” अभिज्ञान शाकुंतलम ” by Mahakavi Kalidas written in the 3rd century. He wrote the story, dialogues and Lyrics ( some lyrics were by Ratan Piya ) also. This was Sharar’s first film with Shantaram . Their association continued for some more films like, Parbat pe apna dera-44, Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46, Apna Desh-49, Teen batti char Raasta-53 and J.J. Payal baje-55.

The cast of the film was Jayashree ( for whom Shantaram had to leave Prabhat), Chandramohan, Zohra, Ameena, Nimbalkar, Nana Palshikar etc etc. For actress Zohra Jaan, this was her last film in India, before Partition. Actually, she was already selected as the Heroine of Shantaram’s next film ‘ Parbat pe apna dera”, but when some communal riots erupted in Bombay for Partition, she got scared and left immediately for Lahore, Pakistan.

One interesting actor in the cast was Madan Mohan (not the Music Director). He had come from Punjab and he stuck with Shantaram’s films He was in Parbat pe apna dera-44 and he became a regular in most films of Shantaram, after that. Likewise another interesting actor was Indurao T. Nimbalkar, a veteran actor from marathi films. He too became almost a regular with Shantaram. In film Shakuntala-43 he played the role of sage Kanva Muni, the foster father of Shakuntala.

Film Shakuntala was a successful film. It not only ran for 104 weeks in Bombay, but it became the first ever Hindi film to be shown in the USA. The New York Times had given a favourable review of the film in its editions. The film was also nominated for the Grand International Award at the 1947 Venice Film Festival.

This was Vasant Desai’s first independent assignment with his mentor-V.Shantaram. he had a long associationwith Rajkamal filmsn subsequently. So, one can see major landmarks were associated with this film.

Now, coming to our point. There were two actresses in Hindi films, named Shakuntala. One was Baby Shakuntala to start with , but later on she became Heroine in many Hit films. She paired with well known heroes, like Kishore Kumar,Bharat Bhooshan,Karan Dewan, Amarnath, Anant marathe, master Bhagwan, Abhi Bhattacharya etc etc. She was a well known actress.

The other Shakuntala was not so well known, because she acted only in the 30’s and 40’s films. Her last film was Paisa-1941 after which she went out of Hindi films.

None of these two Shakunatalas had acted in this film. However, we will see the information on the less known Shakuntala. Her full name was Shakuntala Paranjpye (शकुंतला परांजपे ) She had a very bright career before and after her sojourn into the film world of Hindi and Marathi cinemas. Very few people can match her achievements in films, social work, politics and education. She was the mother of Sai Paranjpye, famous director of offbeat films like Katha, Chashme Baddur, Sparsh etc.

Shakuntalā Parānjpye (17 January 1906 – 3 May 2000) was a writer and a prominent social worker. She was a member of Maharashtra Legislative Council during 1958–64, and was a nominated member of Indian Rajya Sabha (Upper House of Parliament) during 1964–70. In 1991, the Government of India awarded her the Padma Bhushan title in recognition of her pioneering work in the field of family planning since 1938.

Shakuntala Paranjpye was the daughter of Sir R.P.Paranjpye the first Indian to be Senior Wrangler at the University of Cambridge, an educationist, and India’s High Commissioner to Australia during 1944–1947Shakuntala studied for the Mathematical Tripos at Newnham College, Cambridge. She graduated there in 1929. She received a Diploma in Education from London University the next year.
Shakuntala worked in the 1930s with the International Labour Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. In the same decade and in the 1940s,, she also acted in some Marathi and Hindi movies. Shakuntala wrote many plays, sketches, and novels in Marathi. Some of her work was in English.

A Hindi children’s movie, Yeh Hai Chakkad Bakkad Bumbe Bo, which was based on a Marathi story by Shakuntala was released in 2003.

Shakuntala was married for a short time to a Russian painter, Youra Sleptzoff. She had a daughter, Sai Paranjpye, by him in 1938. Soon after Sai’s birth, she divorced Youra, and brought up Sai in her own father’s household. Sai Paranjpye is a noted Hindi movie director and screenwriter. She is known for her comedies and children’s movies. In 1991, the Government of India awarded her the Padma Bhushan title in recognition of her artistic talents.
Shakuntala wrote many books. Some of them are….

1.Three years in Australia
2. Sense and Non sense
3. Kahi ambat kahi goad (Marathi)
4.Desh Videshichya Lok katha (Marathi)

She acted in 13 films- Sairandhri-33, Parth Kumar-34, Bhedi Rajkumar-34,Bhakta Prahlad-34, Typist Girl-35, Sone ka Shahar-35, Kali Waghan-35, Bahadur Beti-35, Duniya na maane-37, Sultana Chand Bibi-38, Jeevan Jyoti-38, Stree-38 and Paisa-41. She sang 9 songs in 4 films-Typist Girl,Sone ka shahar, Stree and Paisa.
Though she ended her Hindi film career in 1941 itself, she is often credited with the films till 1955- films which were actually done by the other (Baby) Shakuntala. This is what I call as “Same Name Confusion”. In fact, (Baby) Shakuntala started her career with film Dus Baje in 1942, so there was no scope for mixing up their filmographies. But wiki as well as most of the film related sites do this mistake.

Today’s song is a short one, with video showing the final departure of Shakuntala, Dushyant and their son-Bharat. It is sung by Amirbai and a chorus with a male voice. The story of film Shakuntala -1943 was –

Shakuntala (Jayshree) is the daughter of sage Vishwamitra and Menaka, but is brought up by the sage Kanva, and stays with him in a forest dwelling. She meets King Dushyanta (Chandra Mohan), when he comes there for a hunt. The two fall in love and get married, with Dushyanta staying with her. Soon he has to leave and he promises to come back for her. Before leaving he gives her a ring as a token of their marriage. Shakuntala passes her days waiting for Dushyanta. She is so lost in his thoughts that she doesn’t hear a sage asking for water. He then leaves her with a curse that the one she is thinking about will forget her. She gives birth to a son, Bharata and several years pass without the return of Dushyanta who has lost his memory and has no recollection of Shakuntala. The ring he has given her is lost in the river and swallowed by a fish. Dushyanta turns her away when Shakuntala goes to the court. Later when Dushyanta recovers his memory Shakuntala refuses to go with him but both are finally united.
