During the last 15 months or so, I have been concentrating mainly on rare songs from films of 1940s in my articles for the Blog. During this period, I came across some playback singers, music directors and lyricists who were unknown to me. I also got to know about some of the not so famous film production banners. Similarly, I got the opportunity to gather some information on film directors of 1930s and 40s such as Debaki Bose, P C Barua, V Shantaram, A R Kardar, Kishore Sahu, Mehboob Khan, Kidar Sharma etc.

It is a privilege for those who were associated with India’s first talkie ‘Alam Ara’ (1931). Whenever the definitive history of Indian film industry is discussed, the names of Ardeshir Irani, Master Vitthal, Zubeida, Prithviraj Kapoor, W M Khan would surely find place in it. However, there were some lesser known persons associated with the first talkie. Sarvottam Badami was one of the lesser known persons who was associated with the first talkie as assistant to Ardeshir Irani in sound recording. I found his filmy career interesting.

In the 1930s and 1940s, there was a producer and director by the name of Kikubhai Desai. He had produced and directed many mythological films in the silent era. With the advent of talkies in 1931, Kikubhai Desai switched over to talkies. His expertise lay in producing talkies of stunt, costume and magical genres. He also directed a few of these films produced by him under these genres. Some of the films he produced under the banner of Paramount Pictures were ‘Chalta Purza’ (1934), ‘Khooni Kanjhar’ (1935), ’Jaadui Danda’ (1935), ‘Burkhawali’ (1936), ‘Guru Ghantal’ (1937), ‘Alladdin Aur Jaadui Chiraag’ (1938), ‘Aflatoon Aurat’ (1940) etc. These films were meant for mass entertainment only. The films were produced at his own Paramount Studio, now known as Filmalaya Studio.
