Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 12
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 27 January 2013, four songs from four different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7411 Bhagwaan do ghadi zara insaan ban ke dekh Bahaar (1951) Movie YIPPEED in the blog by now
7412 Aagaaz chala anjaam chala Raseeli(1946) 5 songs covered out of 10 by now
7413 Lo chhip gaya chaand Ham Panchhi Ek Daal Ke (1957) 4 songs covered out of 10 by now
7414 Qismat ke khel dekho dekho mere babu Chham Chhama Chham(1952) 9 songs covered out of 11 by now

We can observe that one movie (out of four movies) whose songs were covered in the blog on this day ten years ago has since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (27 January 2023).

“Rasilee”(1946) is the oldest movie among the three BTYC eligible movies. This movie was directed by Hanuman Prasad for Jai Bharat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Radharani, Sushil Kumar, Kanhaiya lal, Ramesh Gupta, Anant Prabhu, Ranibala, Meghmala, Shanti devi, Ramlal, Shaamlal etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Rasilee”(1946) in the blog. Only audio of the song is available. The audio quality is very poor. It is difficult to make out several words. Even the voice of the singer is not regognisable. But going by the HFGK entry, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Gafil Harnalvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hanuman Prasad.

I request our readers with keener ears to help provide correct words in the lyrics wherever applicable.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Chehra”(1946) was an obscure movie. Very little information is available on this movie. Our inhouse encyclopeadia, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, while discussing a song from this movie, had shared some rare information about this movie.

According to those details, T”Chehra”(1946) was directed by Rajendra Sharma for Upright pictures, Bombay. The movie had Najma, Kamal Jamindar, Suraiya Zulfi, Mustafa, Jugal Kishore, Kneez, Baby Anwari, Baldev Raj etc. All these actors were small time actors. The Suraiyya Zulfi in this movie was different from the famous Suraiyya.

This movie, which was released in 1947, flopped badly. The movie had nine songs and these songs ended up being forgotten. Even HFGK could not get much details about the songs of the movie. Singers of most of the songs were unknown according to HFGK. Gradually, the songs of this movie have become available online. This blog already contains four songs out of nine.

Here is the fifth song from “Chehra”(1946). HFGK is silent about the singer. Listening to the song , it is clear that it is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. I C Kapoor is the lyricist. Music is composed by M A Mukhtaar.

The lyrics are quite raunchy to listen to. Those days, songs with this kind of lyrics sometimes faced the ire of the censores. Apparently, this song had no such problem, seeing that this as well as other songs of this movie were hardly played on radio or loudspeakers so few people were even aware of these songs.

Only audio of the song is available. So it is difficult to guess how and on whom this song was picturised.


Song-Haath gore gore gulaabi rang waale (Chehra)(1946) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-I C Kapoor, MD-M A Mukhtar

Lyrics

Haath gore gore gulaabi rang waale

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 3
————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 20 January 2013, six songs from six movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7371 Kiye ja pyaar kiye ja pyaar Rajputaani(1946) 3 songs covered out of 9 by now
7372 Dhak dhak dhak jiya kare dhak Sazaa (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
7373 Kabul ki main naar Krorepati(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
7374 Ho mera dil hai nikhhattoo Niraala(1950) Movie YIPPEED by now
7375 Ik shab ke musaafir hain ham to Maikhaana(1967) 2 songs covered out of 7 by now
7376 Aa jaa badli ke sang mera jiya doley re Dhobi Doctor(1954) 2 songs covered out of 7 by now

One can observe that three movies (out of six) whose songs were discussed this day ten years ago (on 20 January 2013) have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three unYIPPEED movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

“Rajputani”(1946) is chronologically the oldest of the three eligible movies. This movie was directed by Aspi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Veena, P.Jairaj, Bipin Gupta, Ghulam Mohammed, Altaf Hussain, Azim, Baby Mumtaz, Noorie, Usha devi etc in it.

“Rajputani”(1946) had nine songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the fourth song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mohantara Talpade. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

The song is a Durga stuti. So it was a fit song to be presented on the occasion of Durga Puja. But I guess that the movie uses this song as a prelude to some battle, where the lady seeking the blessings of Maa Durga prior to the battle sings this song.

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

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2013-2023) – Song No. 1
————————————————————————————–

After a fruitful Blog Ten Year Challenge in 2022 that saw as many as 141 songs getting covered under blog Ten Year Challenge (2012-2022), we now enter into the new challenge viz Blog Ten Year Challenge 2013-2023. This is the first ilstalment of this new challenge.

On this date ten years back viz on 3 January 2013, four songs from four movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7311 Aaja ri nindiya aaja Nai Maa (1946) 2 songs covered out of 8 by now
7312 Mujhe wo dekhkar jab muskuraayen Zalzalaa (1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
7313 Kaise rokoge aise toofaan ko Anandmath(1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
7314 Dil ke paar ho gayee Bambai Ki Billi (1960) 3 songs covered out of 7 by now

We can observe that two movies (out of four) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today on 3 January 2023.

“Nai Maa”(1946)is one eligible movie. It was directed by K.J.Parmar for Prakash Pictures. The movie had Jeevan, Ranjana, Rajkumari Shukla, Baby Madhuri, Rajkumar, N.Kabeer etc in it.

“Nai Maa”(1946) had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered.

Here is the third song from the movie to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the singer and the uploader mentions the singer as Chhaaya. Listening to the song it is clear that the singer is Parul Ghosh. The earlier two songs from the movie that have been covered in the blog had her voice in them as well. So it is Parul Ghosh wihout a doubt. Chaaya could be the name of the character who lip syncs the song on screen, which is how “Singers” of songs were “identified” on movie records that were issued those days.

Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hanuman Prasad.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the film Rasilee-1946.

In India, the Talkie film was born in 1931. Next 19 years were the Film Industry’s Teen years when it was shedding its limitations, trying new ways, learning the right things, expanding rapidly, making films considering the likes of the audience and achieving a status of a lovable, attractive and one of the most wanted industries to work for. The film industry entered its Adulthood in the early 50’s when the ” Golden Age of Music” enchanted the people of the world.

Every and each year from the 1931 to 1950, the Hindi films had some major events, some experiments, some innovations and some Milestones. 1946 was an year which too had its share in the process of Evolution. By 1946 to 1950 old towers shook hard to crumble. The studio system almost disappeared. Film industry could now boast of people highly educated, talented and hard working. Even artistes with International experience and success like Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, actor Ranjan, Balraj Sahni etc contributed to Indian films. The old horse of Calcutta-New Theatres broke down and actors, directors and Music specialists from Bengal made a Bee-Line to Bombay, thus making it the strongest ever film centre.

1946 was also an year of consolidation, in a sense that due to the imminent Partition of India on the basis of Religion, agreed upon by Gandhi-Nehru combine, made Muslim artistes and film makers plan to pack their bags and move over to the new Utopia across the border. Their vacancies were to be filled up by the waiting second line of actors, directors and MDs. The film industry was to have a complete new look within 1-2 years and the beginning was from 1946. Thus the year was very important.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The IInd world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased to Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only 74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in the French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in the Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946. The year of Rasili-1946, was indeed a remarkable year when many artistes made their debuts in Hindi films in different fields – acting, Direction, singing or composing music etc.
Just look at this list…

Nirupa Roy, Geeta Roy, Geeta Bali, K A Abbas, Ravi Shankar, Balraj and Damayanti Sahni, Meena Kapoor, P L Santoshi (as a Director), Dev Anand, Rehana, Rehman, Kamla Kotnis, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chetan and Uma Anand, Kamini Kaushal, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Meena Kumari (adult roles), Indivar, Tasneem, Baby Tabassum, actress Shashi, Nigar Sultana, Kukku(as Heroine), Kishore Kumar (as actor in Shikari), Sudhir Phadke, Ram Ganguly, S D Burman, Nissar Bazmi, Mohd. Shafi, Hansraj Behl, Chitragupta Shrivastav, Snehal Bhatkar and Vinod.

Film Rasilee-1946 was made by Jai Bharat Pictures. This social film was directed by Hanuman Prasad, who also gave music to this film. He even wrote 2 songs for this film. He had also acted in the film Aansuon ki Duniya-1936. He gave music to 19 films composing 135 songs and wrote 19 songs in 6 films. This was the only film he ever directed.

The cast of the film was Susheel Kumar, Radha Rani, Kanhaiya lal, Ramesh Gupta, Anant Prabhu etc etc. The Lyricist was Gafil Harnalvi. The singers were Shamshad Begum, Kalyani, Mukesh, Narayan Datt, Rafi and Geeta Roy. Actress Radha Rani was one of the “Same Name Confusion” pair, in which she was the Bambai wali Radha Rani- about whom I have written earlier.

The other interesting cast member was Kanhaiyalal, whose career was like ” Jate the Japan pahunch gaye Cheen”. He joined the industry to become a Lyricist, but became an Actor. As an actor also he created a lasting impression.

Pandit Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi was born on 15-12-1910 in Banares. His father was Bhairodutt and mother was Parvati Devi. He studied only upto 4th std. When he was 15 year old he was given the family Kirana shop to manage, but due to his hobby of seeing dramas, the shop had to be closed. Then he was tried on a Chakki. Here also he failed. Seeing his inclination, his father started his own Drama company called ‘ Sanatan Dharm Natak Samaj’. Kanhaiya started doing odd jobs in that company.

After father’s death, his elder brother Sankata Prasad went to Bombay and joined Sagar Film co. Kanhaiya also went to Bombay . There he wrote a drama ” 15 August ke baad” and wanted to stage it, but it was censored too much and he failed in this too.

He left for Calcutta and joined the drama company of Agha Hashr. He got a good role of ‘Tabalchi’ in it. But he left this too and went to Allahabad joining a Ramleela group where he presented one drama also. Once Chimanlal Desai of Sagar had come there. He saw Kanhaiya and called him to Bombay. He only wanted to write songs, stories and dialogues, but fate made him an actor only.

He first did an extra role in the film ” Sagar ka Sher”. He was noticed by Motilal and he took him to Mehboob. He was given a role in the film “Gramophone Singer-38″. His next big role was in the film ‘ Sadhana”-39, it was followed by Bhole Bhale-39, Ek hi Raasta-39 and Service limited-39.

In 1940, his life’s most important role of ‘Sukhilala’ was done by him in the film Aurat-1940. After 17 years, Mehboob chose only him to do the same role in the remake “Mother India-1957”.

Kanhaiyalal was known to be a “Scene Eater” by other stars. Even Dilip Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajesh khanna, Ashok kumar etc appreciated his dialogue delivery and acting. In his private life, Kanhaiayalal was very down to earth. Though he could easily afford it, he never bought a car and always travelled in Bus, Train or a Taxi.

He worked in 141 films and surprisingly 7 songs were picturised on him,on screen.Besides acting, Kanhaiyalal wrote dialogues, stories and songs in films. He wrote 57 songs in 8 films namely, Sadhana-39, Comrades-39, Bhole Bhale-39, Sanskar-40, Civil Marriage-40, Radhika-41, Nirdosh-41 and Kasauti-41.

His dedication for work was always appreciated. During the shooting of the film Aurat-40, the set fell on him and he was injured, but he told Mehboob,-‘ Don’t stop the shooting. Take the shots.’ After the shooting, he was given treatment.

Some of his films were Behen, Radhika, Lal haveli, Ganga jamuna, Sautela bhai, Grihasthi, Upkar, Ram aur Shyam, Teen bahuraniyan, Jeevan mrityu, Hum panch etc etc.
He gave his last film shot for film Hathkadi-82.
Kanhaiyalal Chaturvedi died on 14-8-1982, when he was 72 years old. He died in Delhi, leaving behind his wife, two sons and four daughters, and hardly any property. Even the body of the celebrated artiste could not be brought to Bombay, his home.

(information drawn from Sagar Movietone by Biren Kothari, Beete kal ke sitare by Shriram Tamrakar, wiki, HFGK,muVyz and my notes, all with thanks.)

Let us now listen to this good song by Shamshad Begum, from the film Rasilee-1946.

Today’s song is a duet from the film ‘Her Highness’ (1946).

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The 2nd World War had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created black marketing. This made many people millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in film making. The increased cost of raw films made film making 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in lakhs instead of thousands. In 1945, only 74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of film making.

Film ‘Dharati Ke Lal’ (1946) was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. ‘Neecha Nagar’ (1946) won the Grand Prix award in the French Film Festival. Film ‘Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahani’ (1946) was dubbed in English as ‘The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in the Venice Film Festival. Two musical films – ‘Anmol Ghadi’ and ‘Shahjahan’ were made in 1946. Year 1946 also saw the debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ‘debut year’ of the Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film ‘Amar Raaj’.

Geeta Bali debuted with a dance in film ‘Badnami’

Geeta Roy sang her first film song in film ‘Bhakta Prahlad’

Balraj Sahni debuted in the film ‘Insaaf’. It was a small role, though.

KA Abbas-Director, Pt. Ravi Shankar-MD, Balraj Sahni as hero and Damayanti Sahni as heroine made their Debut in film ‘Dharti Ke Lal’

Meena Kapoor sang her first Hindi film song in film ‘Eight Days’

Sudhir Phadke debuted as MD in film ‘Gokul’

PL Santoshi as Director, Dev Anand, Rehman, Rehana and Kamla Kotnis debuted as actors in film ‘Hum Ek Hain’

Chitragupta did his first film as MD in ‘Lady Robin Hood’

Ram Ganguly became MD with film ‘Maharana Pratap’

Abhi Bhattacharya debuted in film ‘Milan’

Chetan Anand as Director, Uma Anand and Kamini kaushal as actresses debuted in film ‘Neecha Nagar’

Hansraj Behl debuted as MD with film ‘Pujari’

Madhubala (as Baby Mumtaz) sang her first song in film ‘Pujari’

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote his first Hindi film song in film ‘Shahjahan’

SD Burman as MD and Kishore Kumar as an actor debuted with film ‘Shikari’

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly an year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the migrators, after the Partition.

‘Her Highness’, a stunt film was made by Bharat Talkies. The cast of the film consisted of the usual members of action/stunt films. Sarla Devi, Dilawar, Mehdi Raja, Madhukar Gupte, Meerabai, Prakash, Agha Peerjaan, Narmada Shankar etc. Lyricists were Roopbani and Madhup Sharma. However HFGK does not credit any Lyricist for any specific song. It also does not mention the singers’ names of any song.

The film was directed by stunt film veteran – Balwant Bhatt. He was the elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt, who too was an expert in directing B and C grade films. One sees this kind of close relatives following each other from the very beginning of the talkie films. Even Zubeida, heroine of the first talkie – ‘Alam Ara’ (1931) had her 2 sisters and mother in this profession. If I start listing such names, it will be a long list. One interesting feature of Balwant Bhatt was that he had also directed the film ‘His Highness’ in the year 1937. If there were films like ‘Momma Highness’ and ‘Papa Highness’, I am sure Balwant Bhatt would have directed those films too !

The elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt, Balwant Bhatt was born at Porbandar,Gujarat on 13-1-1909. Balwant started his career by assisting Naval Gandhi in 1930-31 and Pesi Karani at Imperial Film company and then NB Vakil at Sagar Studios in 1932.

A prolific director of second tier, action oriented films, Bhatt’s first film as a director was Royal Film Company’s 1932 silent thriller ‘Passing Show’ which featured popular stunt-film actor Navinchandra. He turned director with the advent of talkie films and joined Prakash Pictures with ‘Bambai Ki Mohini’ (aka ‘Actress’) (1934) starring Miss Panna and Miss Alaknanda. His last one was ‘Nagin Aur Sapera’ (1966). He directed 33 films, mostly stunt and C grade films.

Bhatt directed action star Fearless Nadia in ‘Delhi Express’ (1949) and ‘Circuswale’ (1950) as well as the comedian Bhagwan in ‘Joker’ (1949) and ‘Jodidar’ (1950), and even had opportunities to work with bigger name’s such as Bibbo in ‘Suhaag’ (1940), Maya Banerjee in ‘Madhusudan’ (1941), and Prithviraj Kapoor in ‘Aankh Ki Sharam’ (1943). But the vast majority of Bhatt’s output was in the category of B-grade films.

He directed some Gujarati films like ‘Sansar Leela’, ‘Seth Sagsha’, ‘Divadandi’, ‘Snehlata’ etc. He was the producer of ‘Dillagi’ (1942), ‘Gunehgar’ (1953), ‘Alif Laila’ (1953), ‘Sindbad The Sailor’ (1952), ‘Son Of Sindbad’ (1958), ‘Police Detective’ (1960) etc. etc. ‘Diwadandi’ (1950) became famous for its song – ”Taari Aankhni Afini”, sung by Dilip Dholakia with music by Ajit Merchant. His film ‘Mordhwaj’ (1952) was the debut film for MD Narayan Dutt. Balwant Bhatt died on 7-2-1965, at Bombay.

Today’s song is a rare song, but we do not know who wrote or who sung this duet. HC Bali was the music director.

Harishchandra Bali aka HC Bali was born on 10-3-1906 at Jalandhar, Punjab. He received early training in music from Pt. Tola Ram and Ustad Maula Baksh of Talwandi Gharana. He was also a disciple of Bhaskarbuwa Bakhale and Pt. Dilip Chandra Vedi. He adopted their styles. Bali came to Bombay. He entered film by acting as a hero in the film ‘Naqsh-e-Sulemani’ (1933). In later life also he acted in a few more films. As a MD, his first film was ‘Aurat Ka Dil’ (1933) and last film was ‘Janta’ (1947).

He gave music to 26 films. Among these were first films of Prof. Pt. Ramanand Sharma, ‘Watan Parast’ (1934), first film of actress Pramila, ‘Bhikarin’ (1935), first film of Debaki Bose in Bombay, ‘Jeewan Natak’ (1935). In the film ‘Pati Patni’ (1939), Naushad was his assistant and composed a few songs also. In 1942, Bali gave music to ‘Aple Ghar’, the Marathi version of ‘Apna Ghar’ (1941). He was the MD for the last film of Vishnupant Pagnis, ‘Mahatma Vidur’ (1943) and in film ‘Janta’ (1947), he gave the opportunity to lyricist Rajendra Krishna for the first time.

Bali also gets the credit for bringing KL Saigal to limelight. Both he and Saigal were from Jalandhar. When Saigal was in Calcutta for his job as a typewriter salesman, Bali was living with RC Boral. Bali told Boral about Saigal’s singing and the rest is history. Bali came into news in the late 50s, when he said that Lata had sung 4 songs for his film ‘Seedha Rasta’ in 1941 and thus claimed to introduce her to  film singing. However, Lata clarified that till the death of her father Dinanath Mangeshkar in 1942, she was in Kolhapur and there was no question of her singing in films in 1941. Thus Bali’s claim got scuttled.

After 1947, Bali retired from films and returned to Jalandhar. He started his own music school, ‘Sangeet Vihar’. He became famous as a music Guru to many singers in later years. Bali also sang on radio and was an A grade artiste of All India Radio. He also wrote a few books on music – ‘Sangeet Vigyan’ in 4 volumes and ‘Sangeet Prakash’ in Punjabi language. These books were published by Punjab State University Text Book Board in Chandigarh. Harishchandra Bali died on 24-6-1976 at Jalandhar.

Here is the rare song from the film ‘Her Highness’. The names of the singers of this duet are not even mentioned on the gramophone record, but I feel the song must have been sung by the cast members itself, to save expenses. Such tactics were followed by the producers while making stunt C grade films.

With this song, film ‘Her Highness’ makes it’s debut on the Blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 52
————————————————————————————–

This date (13 June) ten years ago (2012) saw five songs from five different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6072 Jab ankhiyaan pehli baar milin Paraaye Bas Mein(1946) 3 songs covered out of 7 by now
6073 Chanda taley muskuraaye jawaaniyaan Chandi Rani (1953) 1 song covered out of 9 by now
6074 Ganga ki reti pe bangla chhawaayi de Mirza Ghalib (1954) Movie YIPPEED by now
6075 Aankhon mein teri yaad liye jaa reha hoon main Hamaari Yaad Aayegi(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
6076 Subah hoti hai shaam hoti hai Aplam Chaplam (1961) 3 songs covered out of by now

We can see from the table that two movies out of five whose songs were covered ten years ago on this date have since been YIPPEED in the blog. That leaves us with three movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (13 June 2022).

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) is one of the three eligible movies. This movie was directed by by Dawood Chand for India United Pictures, Lahore. The movie had Pran, Asha Posley, Ramlal, Zubeida, Zahoor Shaah, Ghulam Khadir, Maala, Deepak, Wazir Begum, Nazar etc in it.

“Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) had 7 songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Paraaye Bas Mein”(1946) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Though HFGK is silent about the music director and lyricist, the music sounds typical of Vinod (who was one of the two music diretors of the movie, other being Niaz Hussain Shami. The movie had two lyricists as well, namely Aziz Kashmiri and Tufail Hoshiarpuri. It is easy to guess that Aziz Kashmiri , a regular collaborator of Vinod has to be the lyricist. Our regular Mr Sadanand Kamath also feels the same about the music director and lyricist of this song.

Only the audio of the song is available. My uess is that the song was picturised on Asha Posley, the heroine of the movie. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the film Door Chalen-1946.

Since the time Talkie films arrived in India in the form of Aalam Ara-1931, the enthusiastic film industry, with a pushover from the silent era to the Talkie era, was busy in discovering itself. It was improving in every field as the years passed by. In the first 5-6 years the industry was desperately trying to be free from the clutches of stage music, drama style acting and contents of the films made.

By 1937-38 all these 3 ghosts from the past had been thrown off. Music directors like Anil Biswas, R.C.Boral, Saraswati Devi, Shankar rao Vyas, K C Dey, Pankaj Mullick etc successfully brought a turnaround change in film music from stage -type boring singing to folk tunes and independent experiments with instruments, tuning and the singers. With actors like Motilal, Ashok kumar, Shahu Modak, Kumar etc. the acting became natural and free from drama-type overacting. New directors like Shantaram,Debki Bose, Mehboob etc. tried new themes in films. Prabhat and New Theatres made films on actual events or famous novels and dramas, thus making films vibrant and interesting.

By 1942 or so, many enterprising filmmakers and directors,hitherto tied up with the existing studios, broke free to start their own studios and film production companies. Shantaram, Mehboob,S. Mukherjee, Kardar, Homi Wadia and few more dynamic film makers began a new chapter in the film industry. With talented filmmakers, competing with each other to make better films, they were improving the quality of films in terms of content, music and the presentation substantially.

By 1946 to 1950 old towers shook hard to crumble. The studio system almost disappeared. Film industry could now boast of people highly educated, talented and hard working. Even artistes with International experience and success like Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, actor Ranjan, Balraj Sahni etc contributed to Indian films. The old horse of Calcutta-New Theatres broke down and actors, directors and Music specialists from Bengal made a Bee-Line to Bombay, thus making it the strongest ever film centre.

1946 was also an year of consolidation, in a sense that due to the iminent Partition of India on the basis of Religion, agreed upon by Gandhi-Nehru combine, made Muslim artistes and film makers plan to pack their bage and move over to the new Utopia across the border. Their vacancies were to be filled up by the waiting second line of actors,directors and MDs. The3 film industry was to have a complete new look within 1-2 years and the beginning was from 1946. Thus the year was very important.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The II world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946.

Year 1946 also saw the Debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ” Debut year” of Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film Amar Raaj-46

Geeta Bali debuted with a dance in film Badnaami-46

Geeta Roy sang her first film song in film Bhakta Prahlad-46

Balraj Sahni debuted in film Insaaf-46. It was a small role,though.

K A Abbas-Director, Pt.Ravi Shankar-MD, Balraj Sahni as Hero and Damayanti Sahni as Heroine made their Debut in film Dharati Ke Lal-46

Meena kapoor sang her first Hindi film song in film Eight Days-46

Sudhir Phadke debuted as MD in film Gokul-46

P L Santoshi as Director, Dev Anand, Rehman, Rehana and Kamla Kotnis debuted as actors in film Hum Ek Hai-46

Chitragupta did his first film as MD in Lady Robin Hood-46

Ram Ganguly became MD with film Maharana Pratap-46

Abhi Bhattacharya debuted in Hindi film Milan-46

Chetan Anand as Director, Uma Anand and Kamini kaushal as actresses debuted in film Neecha Nagar-46

Hansraj Behl debuted as MD with film Pujari-46

Madhubala(as Baby Mumtaz) sang her first song in film Pujari-46

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote his first Hindi film song in film Shahjahan-46

S D Burman as MD and Kishore Kumar as an actor debuted with film Shikari-46

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly an year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the Migrators, after the Partition.

Film Door Chalen-46 was made by Durga Pictures. Director was Phani Mujumdar, MD was K C Dey and all songs were written by Sajjan Purohit(the actor Sajjan). The cast was Naseem Jr., Kamal Kapoor, Balraj Sahni, Damayanti Sahni, Agha, David, K C Dey etc.HFGK sometimes blindly gave the data. The lead actress is written as just Naseem. Since in those days Naseem Bano (mother of Saira Bano) was famous, everybody thought that she was the heroine of this film. Her Filmography includes Door Chalen-46 and Jeewan Swapna-46. The reality is, there was another actress Naseem junior and she had acted in these films.

Naseem Jr. or Miss Naseem Jr. or Naseem Lodhi was the younger sister of actress Shameem. She was born in Lahore on 8-2-1930. Her father had a shop and he was a General merchant. She was educated in Islamia Girls school, Bombay where she was staying with her actress sister Shameem. After Matriculation, she too wanted to become an actress. While in school she did many dramas. At the age of 13, she did an uncredited small role in the film Salma-43.

Her first major film was Jwar Bhata-44- also the first film of Dilip kumar and Mrudula. Her second film was Manorama-44. She acted in few more films Sanyasi-45, Zeenat-45, Door Chalen-46, Amar Raj-46, Jeewan Sapna-46 and Mera Geet-46.

She had a hot temperament and could not get along with co-stars and the Directors. Soon the offers diminished. Not having any income, she stayed with her sister Shamim. However, she fell ill and soon died on 17-11-1946.

She did only a few films, but it was enough to cause confusion. Her films Jeewan Swapna-46 and Door chalen-46 are generally credited to Naseem Sr.’s filmography.

Similarly, only Kamal is written in the Cast in HFGK. One can not make out if this Kamal is a male or female. In reality he was Kamal Kapoor, making his Debut in the film line as a hero. His snake-like eyes and fair skin made him look more like a KGB or Nazi baddie. Prithviraj Kapoor’s cousin, Kamal Kapoor, acted in over 600 films, spanning across three languages. He started off as a hero but with little success. From the Sixties onwards, Kapoor switched to playing a minor villain. His notable work includes Don, Gora aur Kaala, and, of course, Mard, where he played the evil General Dyer.
Born on 22th February 1920 in Lahore, Kamal Kapoor completed his education in Lahore. He started his career in 1944, with Prithvi Raj Kapoor, working in his theatre. Kamal Kapoor’s debut film was the 1946 release, ‘Door Chalein’. This movie, produced under the banner of Durga Pictures was directed by Phani Majumdar and the music composer was K.C.Dey while Kamal Kapoor and Naseem were the leading pair. Kamal Kapoor played Raj Kapoor’s father in ‘Aag’ (1948) which was also Raj Kapoor’s debut film as producer-director. Later he got numerous offers to play similar roles which he flatly refused to do.

Kamal Kapoor’s career as a villain started with the film “Johar Mehmood In Goa” which was released in 1965. This movie proved to be a big hit thus putting an end to the bad times for Kamal Kapoor. Soon he was flooded with work and was offered to play different characters in films like “Johar In Bombay”, “Johar Mehmood In Hongkong”, “Jab Jab Phool Khile”, “Raja Aur Rank”, “Dastak”, “Pakeezah”, “Paapi”, “Chor Machaye Shor”, “Five Rifles”, “Do Jasoos”, “Deewar”, “Khel Khel Me”, “Mard” and “Toofan”.

He once again got a chance to play Raj Kapoor’s father in the 1967 release “Diwana”. In his career spanned over five decades he acted in over 200 films in Hindi, Punjabi and Gujarati languages. He played different kinds of roles from a gangster to the police officer. He played the role of Don’s right-hand man Narang in Don (1978). This blue-eyed actor always had a powerful presence on screen. He worked in 152 films – from Door Chalen-46 to Aakhri Sanghursh-97( last film).

Kamal Kapoor died on 2nd August, 2010.

Today’s song is a duet of Meena Kapoor and K C Dey. It is the 3rd song from this film on this Blog.


Song- Na rona na rona (Door Chalein)(1946) Singers-K C Dey, Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-K C Dey

Lyrics

No rona
na rona
na rona meri raani
na rona
na dheeraj apna khona
na dheeraj apna khona

hai ek aankh phir kya kahiye
hai ek paaon phir kya kahiye
hai ek aankh phir kya kahiye
hai ek paaon phir kya kahiye
gar padha nahin to sonaa hai
pagli phir kaisa rona hai
gar padha nahin to sonaa hai
pagli phir kaisa rona hai
dulha mila salona
dulha mila salona
No rona
na rona
na rona meri raani
na rona
na dheeraj apna khona
na dheeraj apna khona

hamne dhoondha
hamne dhoondha le chiraag
ye laakhon mein hai laal
puny kiye thhe kisi janam mein
ho gayi aaj nihaal
phir kaisa rona-dhona
phir kaisa rona-dhona
No rona
na rona
na rona meri raani
na rona
na dheeraj apna khona
na dheeraj apna khona
na rona

gar kaala hai darr jaaungi
gar bahra hai mar jaaungi
gar kaala hai darr jaaungi
gar bahra hai mar jaaungi
gar padha nahin main doob gayi
gar padha nahin main doob gayi
gar baazi se main oob gayi
bas nahin chaahiye ??
bas nahin chaahiye ??
samjhona
samjhona
samjho na mujhe khilauna

No rona
na rona
na rona meri raani
na rona
na dheeraj apna khona
na dheeraj apna khona
na rona
