“Aabroo”(1943) was directed by Nazeer for Hind Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Sitara Devi, Yakoob, Nazeer, Jagdish, Masood, Shakir, Vatsala Kumthekar, Laddan, Chanda Bai, Janardan Sharma etc in it.

The movie has eleven songs in it. Ten songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

The tenth song was covered in june 2016 and then I had got stuck because the eleventh and final song from the movie was not available.

Now, on carrying out a fresh search, I was pleasantly surprised to note that this elusive song had become available.

Here is this eleventh and final song from “Aabroo”(1943) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Sitaara Devi. Only the audio of this sad song is available, but it is clear that the song was picturised on herself.

Lyricist of this song is not known. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

With this song, “Aabroo”(1943) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dukh dard ke maare hain (Aabroo)(1943) Singer-Sitaara Devi, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

dukh dard ke maare hain aen
dukh dard ke maare hain aen
duniya se nahin chhipwaa(?)
taqdeer ke haare hain

ye gham ka fasaana hai ae ae ae ae
ye gham ka fasaana hai ae ae
koi bhi nahin suntaa aa aa
bedard zamaana hai
har dard ko sahte hain
har dard ko sahte hain ae
har dard ko sahte hain
fariyaad nahin karte ae ae
khaamosh hi rahte hain

Today’s song is a Shamshad Begum solo song from film Poonji-43 ( also known as Wealth). The composer was Ghulam Haider, so no wonder, all 10 songs of the film had Shamshad’s voice.

The other day,I was talking to one of my friends, who is a connoisseur of old films and music. Having the same hobby,we happily discussed and exchanged lot of matters of common interest. During the talk, we wondered, we talk so much about films,do we really know the names of all the artistes in Hindi films. We decided to separately write down names of actors and actresses-big and small-as we remembered, starting from 1931 to year 2000.

After spending about 2 hours on writing names, we checked each other’s lists and to our amazement, we found that we could not even touch the number of 100 in our lists individually !

Why I am writing this is, that the Hindi film industry is an ocean and has been a ” Mai-Baap” to provide Roji-Roti to thousands of people. Of course, it is not possible to list all names who all worked in films from 1931 to 2000. Or is it ? What is your idea of the number of people who worked in films ? 500 ?, 1000 ?, 2000 ? ????? How many ???

Few years back, a kind soul gentleman posted a list of all big and small ( also smaller and the smallest) actors and actresses, who worked in Hindi films from 1931 to 2000. I am surprised that there could be someone with so much free time and patience to do this monumental work. The list was posted on a site on Internet and …hold your breath, it contained names of 7000 ( seven thousand ) people !. Dr. Surjit Singh ji , from US, copied this list from that site ( now defunct) and had posted it on RMIM forum on the 29th August 2006.

During the course of last 80 odd years, thousands of actors came to work in films. Most of them wanted to become Hero or Heroine, but could not make it. What does it take to become a Hero in a film ? ( Talking only for the period 31 to 70 please). Is it good looks ? Then how come Shaikh Mukhtar became a Hero ? or Ranjan ? High education ? Then how come Master Bhagwan became a Hero ? A God Father ? Then how come Motilal or Surendra became Heros ? For girls too same logic applies. In the early era, most Heroines were uneducated like Meena Shorey- who could not even sign her name. All were not Handsome or beautiful. I sincerely feel, it is neither Talent nor the good looks, it is nothing but the Luck Factor, which helps in making a career in films. This explains why good looking, educated 1 or 2 film’s Heros could not sustain themselves for long. Same way, good looking girls like Vijayalaxmi, Bimla kumari, krishnakumari,Tabassum, Yashodhara katju, Shubha Khote, Shashikala etc could not continue beyond 3-4 films as Heroines.

I the 40s era, Manorama was one such actress. She had good education, beautiful punjabi looks, fine acting, but she could not go beyond 3 films as Heroine and to contend with side and character roles in all her career. Manorama was born in Lahore on 16-8-1920,as Irene Issac Daniels, from Punjabi father and Irish mother. She took good looks from the father. While a student, she did some child roles in films from 1926 to 1936 and as an adult, she debuted in pancholi’s Khazanchi-41. She then acted in Himmat-41, Khandan-42, Zamindar-42, Poonji-43, Panchhi-44, Patwari-45 in Lahore. Here only she did Heroine’s roles in Khamosh Nigahen, Rehana and Shalimar- all i 1946. After partition, she migrated to India, but she got only side and character roles.

Meanwhile, in 1947, she got married to Rajan Haksar. After coming to India, shortly, their marriage broke. She had one daughter-Roopa from this marriage. Roopa tried her luck in films in 1970, without much success. Then she got married and settled.

Manorama grew i weight. Now she got comic or vamp roles. She did films like Ghar ki izzat, Johari, Hanste aansoo, Ek phool do mali, Shor, karvaan etc etc. In all she acted in 161 films. Her last film was Water-2005. She died on 15-2-2008. She perhaps, had the longest career among actresses-fro 1926 to 2005, that is a cool 80 years ! manorama was a highly respected person in the industry.Neetu singh,madhuri Dixit,Ram Mohan, Ekta kapoor and others were her fans. Her famous films were jhanak jhanak….,Half ticket,Budtameez,and Seeta aur Geeta.

Another little known actress in the film cast was Baby Akhtar. There is a small note on her i the Urdu book ” Filmi Titliyan’- by Bijli Jampuri,from Hyderabad Dn, published in 1945. This book gives short Bio nites on 85 Actresses of the 30s and early 40s. That way it is an important document in Hindi film Industry. Some of the names in this book are really very rare like, Pushpa Rani,urmila Devi,Anuradha,Brij Rani,Baniya Pali,Prabha,Roop lekha,Shalini,Kanta kumari,Najma etc.

About baby Akhtar, it says… ” She was born in GujraaNwala (now in Pakistani Punjab) on the 26thMarch 1932. She was hardly nine, when (Dalsukh) Pancholi chose her for his film “Khaandaan”, where she enacted the part of a very young innocent girl. The film was a big hit. Film-goers and critics predicted a bright future for her. Some of her more successful movies are “Inteqaam”, “Qismat Ki KasauTi”, “GHareeb”,”Karwaan-e-Husn”, “Rangeen Gunaah”, Bismil-e-Arzoo”, “Mohabba Ki Duniya”, “Zevar”, “Pratigya”, “Masterji”, “Aasra” etc.

Three of these movies were greatly appreciated by the public, viz.”Qismat Ki KasauTi”, “Masterji” and “Rangeen Gunaah”. She is an accomplished actress and much is expected of her in the coming days. She is now working for Amar Movietone and her next film is due to be released shortly.Apart from beauty of countenance, she is also blessed with a good character. But, these days, her love for films and acting has diminished somewhat.”

yet another name which the younger readers may not be knowing is Durga Mota. his real name was Durgaprasad.Due to his heavy build he was nicknamed Mota(fat). He was a permanent member of Pancholi films as a comedian. It is very sad that his career ended in a gruesome way. In 1947, after Partition, there was an exodus of millions from Lahore to India. Durgaprasad also wanted to shift to Delhi. He went to Lahore station to catch the train.Suddenly, a frenzied mob of rioters invaded Lahore station and they started killing all the passengers to India. People started running to save life. Due to his fatness, Durgaprasad could not move faster and was caught by the mob, who cut him in pieces on the Lahore Railway station platform itself.

The film Poonji-43 was made by Dalsukh pancholi. Today,the name of Dalsukh Motiram Pancholi,does not ring a bell,but there was a time ,when he along with Roop K.Shorey,J.K.Nanda & K.D.Mehra was ruling the Lahore Film Industry,before partition.Born in Karachi on 7-12- 1906, Dalsukh studied Scriptwriting and Cinematography in New York. He inherited Cinema network built by Rewa shankar Pancholi in the period of WW-I. He expanded Empire Film Distributors-1922 into Empire Talkie Distributors in 1931. He became the biggest importer of American Films in Northern and Western India ( about 24 films in one year). Exclusive contract with RKO gave him access to Photophone Sound Equipment. He made some Documentaries like Congress Session of 1931 at Karachi etc.

Dalsukh Sahab formed a film Company at Lahore ,in partnership with his brother Damodar M Pancholi in late thirties, built his studio Pancholi Art Pics in Lahore with 5 floors & made their first Punjabi movie Gul E Bakawali in 1938.The luck smiled over them & they made Yamla Jatt,-40,Khazanchi-41,Khandaan & Zamindaar in 42,Poonji-43 & Dasi in 44.While he introduced Noor Jahan,Pran ,Om Prakash, Manorama & Jankidas into film industry,he brought Shanta Apte from Bombay,for his highly successful Zamindar,to act opposite Dr.S D Narang.His association & admiration for music maestro Ghulam Hyder,is legendary. Shamshad Begum ,once recalled that,when she came to know that remuneration of Ghulam Hyder has been raised,she hesitantly asked Seth Pancholi,for a raise too.He asked her,how much,she wanted.She used to be paid Rs.100/-,per song,now she asked Rs 700/-.Immediately Seth Ji said Okay.She was thrilled,until,the generous Seth said that if you would have asked for Rs.2000/-,I would have paid it to you.

It was 1947 & impending the partition, communal riots were taking place.Seth Pancholi left for Bombay ,only with the negatives of his newest movie Patjhad, which he was making (Sadly the movie could not see the light of the day & remained in cans).His studio in Lahore, was engulfed in fire ignited by hoodlums,after his departure.

Pancholi knew no other business except show business & he made a beginning with Nagina in 1951,which was directed by Ravindra Dave,his closest associate.In his next Aasman -52,he introduced O.P.Nayyar,as we all know.Pancholi Sahab admired Saigal & was mad after his voice.He could not work with him earlier, as Saigal chose Calcutta & then Bombay as his Karm Bhoomi & now it was too late.He insisted his MDs to use the voice of C H Atma for his movies Nagina & Aasman.

He made Lutera in 1955 & Farishta-58 was his last movie which was released in 1958.Due to financial constrains,his movies were made with in limited budget & the grandeur associated with him was missing.Although,he was president of IMPPA during 54-55,due to internal politics,he largely was, treated as outsider by the then established film makers ,who had their roots in Bombay.A film tycoon who carved a film empire at Lahore & made Khazanchi ,which celebrated golden Jubilee,breathed his last,as he got into his car,while returning from the office of his distributor,who refused to pay him the installment. Actor Janki Das,was with his mentor,when Pancholi Sahab uttered his last words “Janki Das ! Never put your children in films’.It was 10th october 1958 & Dalsukh Pancholi was of 53 years. He was driving his own car himself that time. He got an attack and stopped the car and died on his seat itself.

Actor Aditya Pancholi is his younger brother Rajan’s son. Dalsukh Motiram pancholi made just 20 films ( including 2 Punjabi films) from 1938 to 1958. He directed only 1 film, Aasmaan-52. His protege Ravindra Dave directed 7 of his films. ( based on writings of Harish Raghuwanshi ji, M N Sardana ji, indian cine.ma and Encyclopaedia of indian cinema etc. with thanks).

There were 10 songs in the film. 3 songs are already discussed here. This is the 4th song. This is a ” Dupatta” song. So far 14 Dupatta songs are posted on this Blog,including,of course, the iconic,’ Hawa mein udta jaaye mera laal dupatta malmal ka” from film Barsaat-49. This was filmed on beautiful Bimla Kumari.

Poonji-43 had music by Ghulam Hyder. HFGK does not indicate individual lyricists of individual songs.

This article is a tribute to an actor whom I started admiring for his acting calibre only a couple of years back. He became a star actor without having any godfather in Hindi film industry. During his filmy career of less than 15 years (1934-48), he donned the different kind of roles, mostly in negative shades, in around 30 films most of which became box office hits. Had there been a concept of super star in his days, he would have been the one among K L Saigal, Motilal, Surendra etc. The actor is Chandra Mohan and today, July 24, 2017 happens to be his 111th birth anniversary.

1943 saw titles like “Khanjarwaali”(1943) and “Pistolwaali”(1943). These were stunt movies, viz movies catering to the taste of low brow audience. These movies have been forgotten with time and their songs are extremely difficult to locate. These movies are not yet represented in the blog.
