Today’s song is from the film Panna-44. All the songs of this film were sung by Shamshad Begum for the film version, whereas records were issued in the voice of Rajkumari. The Blog already has 5 of the 8 songs posted. This is the 6th song from the film to appear in the blog.

Panna or Panna Daai is a famous name in Indian History. Panna Dai was a 16th-century nursemaid to Uday singh II, the fourth son of Maharana Sangram Singh. Her name, Panna means Emerald, and dai means a nurse in Hindi language. She had been given charge of young Udai Singh, breastfeeding him virtually from his birth in 1522, along with her own son Chandan (also known as Moti), who was of similar age and Udai’s playmate. When Udai Singh was attacked by his uncle Bbhanvir, Panna Dai sacrificed the life of her own son Chandan in order to save the life of Udai Singh.

However the title of this film Panna-44 is very misleading, because it is neither a Historical film nor a tear jerking social film. This was perhaps the First film of its kind- a spy thriller based on the story of Mata Hari ( appropriately Indianised ), the famous and mysterious Dutch female spy of the first World War. Mata Hari or Margaretta Zelle (7-8-1876 to 15-10-1917 ) was spying for Germany in France. She was caught and executed by firing squad in a Paris jail.

Those were the Second World War days and it was compulsory for the film makers to make at least one film on war propaganda, to qualify for the allotment of Raw Film at controlled rate. This film Panna-44 had the back ground of war propaganda. At the same time, it was a spy thriller, in which the Hero Jairaj-a CID Inspector puts up Geeta Nizami as a dancer on the road and stage ( paving way to songs and dances) and tries to get the details of enemy spies. Between them the Magic Password is Panna, hence the film name ! In the end when all the enemy spy network is busted the Hero and the Heroine get united.

Panna-44 was a film in which the Heroine Geeta Nizami made her Debut as a Heroine. Geeta’s original name was Rasheeda Begum. Initially, she took the name of Mohni, but after realising that there was another actress Mohna, already in films, she became Geeta and added Nizami to it. Another actress having such a Hybrid name was Mumtaz Shanti, in the same period.

In her first film Mann ki jeet-44, she acted and had a song and dance. The song was ” More jubna ka dekho ubhar ” sung by Zohrabai,written by Josh Malihabadi and composed by S.K.Pal. The dance Geeta did on this song was very sexy. She was shown emerging from a blooming Lotus and at that time she did such provocative actions that soon the song became the talk of the town. The then Bombay Government,led by Morarji Desai, promptly banned the song, but in the rest of India the song became very popular.

Geeta Nizami could not continue as a Heroine in films. She was lead actress in only one more film- Room No.9 (1946). The reason why she did not get more roles as a Heroine has been mentioned in a book by a well known author. According to this author, Geeta took a bath only once a week, smelt horribly and her head was full of Lice. No actor was ready to do a close up scene with her. ( I remember another actress of the early 60s- Kalpana, with same reputation. Shammi Kapoor was on record saying that Kalpana smelt very foul as she probably took bath only once a month. He had refused to work again with her in any film, after Professor-62.)

Geeta Nizami did just 13 films. Her last film was Ek tha Ladka-51. After this she migrated to Pakistan, got married and spent rest of her life as a housewife. She died on 28-4-2008.

The Music Director of this film was Mohd. Amir ali, who was the assistant to senior MD Rasheed Attre. In one interview, Rasheed Atre had said that he had composed almost all the songs, as a help to Amir Ali, who made his Debut as an independent music director with this film. Unfortunately, he died before the release of the film. The credits of the film mentioned his name as ” Late Amir Ali “.

Film Panna-44 was directed by Najam Naqvi. He was born on 11-4-1913, at Moradabad in U.P. His real name was Syed Najmul Hasan Naqvi. He was one of the ” Same Name Confusion ” artistes. He worked with Bombay Talkies as an assistant and as a Continuity Man. The star pair of Bombay Talkies film ” Jawani ki Hawa ” -35- Hero Najmul Hasan and Heroine Devika Rani ( wife of the owner-Himanshu Rai ) eloped to Calcutta and there was terrible commotion in the company.

The whole episode of elopement had become a matter of embarrassment for a ‘continuity man’ working in the same studio. His name too was Najmul Hasan. Because of the same name, this innocent chap -who had nothing to do with the elopement drama- had to suffer staring eyes and hush hush whisperings within the studio and the filmi circle.

He was working in Bombay Talkies doing odd jobs-continuity man and even as an actor in ‘Achhut kanya-36’. He was a very hardworking person. After this episode he changed his name to a shorter edition- Najam Naqvi. He worked in the Direction department and his first film as an independent Director was PUNARMILAN-1940.

He went on directing films like Raja Rani-42, Tasveer-43, Naya Tarana-43, Panna-44, Prithwiraj Sanyogita-46, Nateeja-47, Parayee Aag-48, Actress-48, Nirdosh-50, Rangili-52 and last film-Samrat-54.

In 1955, Najam Naqvi migrated to Pakistan and directed 7 films from Kunwari Bewa-56 to Payal Ki Jhankaar-66.
Najam Naqvi died on 26-1-82 at Lahore. Due to same name, many sites including IMDB mix up the filmography of these two artistes.
In today’s song and dance, you can see Geeta Nizami and others. Let us enjoy this Malaniya song, which is sung by Shamshad Begam. The record version of the song, sung by Rajkumari, is not available as of now.
