“Gopinath”(1948) was produced by Brij Kishore Agrawal and directed by Mahesh Kaul for Shanti Lok Chitra Production, Bombay. The movie had Raj Kapoor, Tripti Mitra, Nand Kishore, Latika, Sachin Ghosh, Anwari Bai, Feroz, Niranjan Tiwari, Mahesh Kaul, Randhir, Baby Zubeida etc in it.

This “social” movie had nine songs in it that were penned by three lyricists namely Soordas, Meerabai and Rammurty Chaturvedi. Two of the three “lyricists”, viz Soordas, Meerabai lived hundreds of years ago and their influence on Indian music scene can be seen from the fact that lots and lots of songs used in HFM and elsewhere were their creations.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Gopinath”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Meera bai (1498-1546), who lived more than four hunndred years ago is credited as the lyricist. This is the 37th song in the blog that is “penned” by Meera Bai !

Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Picturisation shows this song being lip synced by Tripti Mitra, who was the wife of Shombu Mitra- well known as director of “Jaagte Raho”(1956). The young girl visible in the picturisation should be baby Zubeida.


Song-Main birhan baithhi jaagoon jagat sab sowe ri aali (Gopinath)(1948) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Meera Bai, MD-Ninu Majumdar

Today’s song is from a resoundingly flop film of its time, Rambaan-48. The film was made by Prakash Pictures of Bhatt Brothers, known for quality films of different Genres. During the early 40s, their Mythological films like Bharat Milap-42 and Ramrajya-43 were extraordinarily successful. Film Rambaan was also directed by Vijay Bhatt-as usual- and the Music Director was Shankar rao Vyas, their favourite. The film story and dialogues were by Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish. Lyricists were Pt. Indra, Neelkanth Tiwari and Moti,B.A.( who was actually M.A.). The cast of the film was Prem Adib, Shobhana Samarth, Umakant, Ramsingh, Chandramohan, Amirbai, Leela Mishra and many others.

The lead pair of Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth had become extremely popular all over the country as Ram and Seeta, after their two films Bharat Milap and Ram Rajya. These two actors came together for the first time in film Industrial India-1938. After this they worked in 11 more films plus one more film Ramayan-54, which was concocted by joining parts of 3 films made by Prakash Pictures on Ram and Seeta. After this film-Rambaan- Prakash films focused on social and musical films and made memorable films like Baiju Bawra-52 and Gunj Uthi Shehnai-59.

The stories of Rama and offshoots of Ramayana have always inspired film makers. Mahabharat too did the same. In Hindi language alone, films on Rama stories are around 25 ( not counting obvious other films like Ram aur Shyam, Ram Lakhan or Ram Balram etc.). Practically, in every Indian language and dialects, Nepalese and Sinhalese, Ram films are made. However, the kind of fame, popularity and the Box office returns, that the Film Ram Rajya-43 earned is beyond imagination. Calendars from 1944 to 1950 featured Shobhana and Prem as Ram and Seeta. Wherever these stars went they were mobbed and people used to touch their feet, treating them as Ram and Seeta.

Enthused with this fabulous response, Prakash were planning a third film on Ram and Seeta as a last film in the Trilogy of Ramayan Stories. They waited for a good five years and made Rambaan-48.

Ramayan and Mahabharata are the two major Religious Epics for Indians. Ramayana has been popular and widesread all over the Eastern World. There are in all 301 versions of Ramayana. These include the original Valmiki Ramayan and few other major Indian language Versions like Kamban’s Ramavataram in Tamil and Rangnathan’s Ramayana in Telugu. Then there is Ramayan Manjiri in NE and Bengal version. There is a Jain version too.Besides Ramayana in every Indian language and many dialects with scripts, there are Ramayana Versions in Burma, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Phillipines, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Thialand, Malaysia, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam and China. All these versions total upto 300 in number. Then what is the 301st version ?

301st is the version of the fertile imagination of the authors of the ” Story Departments” of Indian film companies. Even Prakash Pictures had its own department. The first two films Bharat Milap and Ram Rajya were mostly based on the original Valmiki Ramayan. For film Rambaan-48, however, the Bhatt brothers gave free hand to the story and dialogue writers, in order to include something new, for which the same audience will come to the theatres. This is where things went wrong. The novel changes and additions that Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish brought into the Ramayana story were ridiculous, which were rejected out right and were resented by the Indian viewers. The Cinematic liberty taken for a film is one thing and twisting and distorting an accepted historical story by the millions over centuries of generations is another thing.

I am sure, if only Valmiki was to watch this film, he would have jumped from Everest or taken a Samadhi immediately ! Let us see what happened in the film, after all.

First and foremost, Shobhana Samarth was 8 month’s pregnant during the shooting of this film ( with her third daughter Chatura ) and it showed everytime she came on the screen. Could they not wait for another 6 months ? As such she was nearing her middle age-at 33 years- and it was obvious to everyone. Secondly, Prem Adib-two years younger than Shobhana, as it is- had put on lot of fat and seeing his open body with loose muscles, almost double chin and a face without freshness was a punishment for the senses.

The blue eyed handsome Chandramohan did the role of Ravan in this film. His characterisation of the role was made very ridiculous. Every now and then and in every scene, his ‘Taqia kalam” was rolling eyes like a drunken person and shouting ” Main Kaun “. Then giving the reply himself ” Main Ravan “. Actually, according to Valmiki and everyone else, Ravan was a very learned Brahmin, a peerless scientist, Veena player, a scholar on Vedas and a staunch devotee of lord Shiv. To make him look like a clown was very sad and disappointing indeed.

Shoorpnakha was actually married early, but her husband was killed by Ravan, in a battle. Ravan had made her a queen of Dandkaranya. In the film, her Swayamwar is shown. She rejects everyone and remains unmarried. This was undigestible to moviegoers who were familiar with the story of Ramayan.

Shabari katha is similarly distorted. In Valmiki Ramayana, after meeting Ram,Seeta and laxmana and giving them half eaten fruit, Shabri self immolates and goes to Heaven. In the film she first meets the three and after Seeta is abducted meets Ram again to inform him that she saw Ravan carrying Seeta in his plane. She also introduces Ram to all the Vanar leaders-Sugreev, Hanuman, Jambuwant etc.

There were many such New Discoveries, thanks to the writers, in this film. I remember in 1950, when this film came to Hyderabad, I had accompanied some old relatives and my Grandfather to this film. After coming back all were very angry. I don’t remember what exactly they had said, but I wrote in my diary ” the film was boring”.

Baburao Patel of Film India was not one to miss such an opportunity to pull up the director and producer. In the February 1949 issue, he had devoted three pages to the film, mostly tearing it apart, accusing the producers of tarnishing the Hindu religion. He only appreciated actor Umakant, who traditionally did the role of Laxman ( He did this role in 7 films in all) as a good and suitable actor. he even suggested him to be promoted as Ram, in their next film.

There is a name Ramsingh, in the film’s cast. The actor Ramsingh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he did Hero’s and Villain’s role in many films. Information about him was not available anywhere on the Internet till today. For the first time his information is appearing here today.His entry in films and life story is very interesting.

During the 1942 ‘Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated Hostels. Two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Dwivedi- who later on became well known as Kavi Pradeep- and the other was Ramsingh- who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall,fair and handsome. V.Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. His family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved, when he never returned.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly, that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! there he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and inquired. The officials brought out their own son- Ramsingh before them !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the Police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich Zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (U.P.), in 1920. After graduating, while doing his M.A. he joined films. His first film was Ramshastri-44, then came Chand-44, Lakhrani-45 and Hum ek hain-46….all Prabhat films. While in Prabhat, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they gave him roles in their almost every film..

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with Heroine Ranjit Kumari ( real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he got 4 children.

Ramsingh played Hero, Villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films were, besides 4 Prabhat films, Gaon-47, Shaheed-48, Khidki-49, Aparadhi-50 ( He was the Hero, opposite Madhubala), Sargam-50, Sangram-50, Shrimati ji-52, Jaal-52, Baaz-53 etc etc. In his later career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and Mythologicals. His last film was Sati Sulochana-69. ( 2 more films Veer Chhatrasaal-71 and Mere Bhaiya-72 were released after he left films).

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit Kumari and children in 1970 and started doing Agriculture. The U.P. Chief Minister H.N.Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. Bahuguna, to help him, immediately established ” U.P. Film Corporation ” and made Ramsingh its Chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the fields again.

Ramsingh started drinking, against medical advise and died in 1984, in his village.

Shankar Rao Vyas gave a very sweet and melodious music. Today’s song, particularly, is the best of the 3 songs which I have heard. This song is sung by Shankar Dasgupta.

Born in 1927 in Bengal, Shankar Dasgupta started singing from childhood. He was a trained singer. In 1946,he got a break with Anil Biswas in his film Milan-46. His first song itself became very popular.

Then he sang in films like Anjana, Didi, Girl’s school, Jeet, Aahuti,Izzat, Do Raha etc. He sang about 63 songs in 39 films. he gave music to 4 films, Sadma, Sheeshe ki deewar, Hotel and Pehli mulaaqaat.

He assisted Anil Biswas and Jaidev for many years. He did work on TV and in News reviews too. He settled in England after retirement,but was active on TV there too.

On one of his routine visits to India in 1992, he met with a tragic accident on a Railway station in Bombay, on 23-1-1992 and died on the spot.

With this song, the film Rambaan (1948) makes its Debut on the Blog.

Lyrics

Uthh Lakhan lal priya bhai
Uthh Lakhan lal priya bhai
dasha tumhaari dekh Raam ki

Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Maat Pita Patni ki maaya

chhod Ayodhya ka sukh tumne
jogi roop banaaya
jis bhai ke liye yudhh mein
praan ki baazi lagaayi
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

pahle mujhe khila phir khaate

aankh moond ke huye tumhi kya

Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Seeta Raavan ke ghar bandi
Meghnath chadh aayo
jagat kahega naari ke kaaran
Raam ne bandhu ganwaayo
dheeraj chhooto jaat sabhi ka
kab se ter lagaayi
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Today’s song is from the film Mera Munna-1948. This film was made by Minerva Movietone. However, it was not directed by Sohrab Modi, but by an outsider- Vishram Bedekar.

Nostalgia ! This feeling is very common amongst Senior Citizens. However, middle age or young people too may indulge in Nostalgia of their favourite times in life or even an incident. Nostalgia is defined as ” Sentimental yearning for the past”. Everyone has some sweet memories of the past. When alone,one indulges in Nostalgia. Sometimes it is shared with the near and dear ones. Many times, an event, an old friend, an old movie or a film songn or an old house,town or anything on this Earth can trigger Nostalgia, if happy memories are connected with it. When you visit your first company where you started your career, surely Nostalgic memories will haunt you.

Same thing happened to C.Ramchandra, when he visited Minerva Movietone in 1948 to sign a contract for giving music to its film ‘Mera Munna’. It was Minerva Movietone, where, in 1936, he had begun his training in Music Composition. After his first film as a Hero-” Naganand “-35 bombed badly ( the first show had only 7 people in the audience-who also left in the interval. Naturally, there were no further shows of the film ! ), he shifted from Kolhapur to Bombay, looking for suitable jobs.

One day he learnt that a big actor from a drama company was about to start a film studio and that recruitment was going on, he decided to try his luck there. Selling a Gold medal he had won in some competition, he stitched a coat and went for the interview. It was Sohrab Modi who took his interview and appointed him as an assitant worker on a salary of Rs. 15 pm. In the two and half to three years that he spent in Minerva, in the beginning of his struggle, he learnt many things.

At Minerva, his first teacher was Bundu Khan as MD. Second was Habib Khan. Next was B.S.Hoogan. C Ramchandra learnt notation writing and use of western instruments for indian ragas. After Hoogan, came Meer Saheb. He was truly a very knowledgeable musician and C Ramchandra learnt many things from him. Actually the training of Meer Saheb gave him the confidence that he too could give music and make tunes. During Meer Saheb’s tenure in Minerva, C Ramchandra became friendly with an young actor and director- Master Bhagwan. He was acting and directing a film ‘Bahadur Kissan’-38. Meer Saheb was the Music Director for this film. Most work was done by C Ramchandra, on behalf of Meer saheb. During this period Bhagwan and he became very good friends.

One day Bhagwan offered C Ramchandra an opportunity to give music to a Tamil film, which Bhagwan was to direct. C Ramchandra gladly did it. After doing one more Tamil film in Madras/Kerala, C Ramchandra got his first Hindi film ” Sukhi Jeevan”-42 as a music director-thanks to Master Bhagwan who was its director. This was the beginning of an eventful and illustrious career of C Ramchandra, who gave music in 112 films, composing 947 songs. He also sang 198 songs in 77 films during his career.

When Sohrab Modi sent a call to him to come for composing songs for one of his films, C Remembered remembered all this. While in Minerva, he knew Modi as a strict disciplinarian and a kind soul. In the subsequent period, C Ramchandra was impressed with the extraordinary success of Minerva movies like Pukar-39, Sikander-41 and Prithwi Vallabh-43. Afterall, his and Minerva’s careers had started together only ! Though he had become a famous and successful Music Director now with films like Shehnai, Saajan, Nadiya ke paar and Khidki etc amongst his 30 odd films, he went to meet Modi.

There was a tremendous change in circumstances when he left Minerva in 1938 and today when Minerva requested him to work for them in 1948. He had become so big that he could have easily refused to work for them, but he was not ungrateful. C Ramchandra has described this meeting to one of his friends, Isak Mujawar thus…

” When I entered the office of Minerva, after 10 years, I realised that while I had grown in my stature, Minerva had lost some of its sheen and its place among the top studios. Whatever I had learned while working here had made my foundation so strong that I could never repay Minerva’s debt fully. As I entered, I saw the same tall, well built Sohrab Modi and by his side Mehtab was sitting next to him. As soon as I crossed the door, both of them stood up. I was embarrassed. I went ahead and touched his feet. He murmured something and hugged me. I did Namaste to Mehtab ji. Modi talked briefly about his film and their expectations about the music. Then with a little hesitation, he asked me my fees. I smiled and said, “Give me just One Rupee, sir. That’s my fees for Minerva”. However, they did not agree and a nominal token fees was fixed. I signed the contract “.

Those were the days when artistes gratefully acknowledged the help they received in their early careers !

There is a name in the film’s cast- Wazir Mohammed Khan, who made his name written in Hindi film History for ever, for being the first ever singer on the screen, when he sang ” de de khuda ke naam par “, in film Aalam Ara-1931, India’s first Talkie film. Despite my efforts, I could not get any information about him, from any source at my disposal.

W.M.Khan was a Pathan. His first film was ‘Alam Ara’-31 and his last film was also Aalam Ara-73. he sang a song in the first film and again the same song in the similarly titled film Alam Ara-56. I saw him on the screen first time in film Kabuliwala-61, in which he lip synched the famous song ” Aye mere pyare watan…”. W.M.Khan acted in 73 films. He sang 6 songs in 4 films, namely Alam Ara-31, Sair e paristan-34, Dard e dil-34 and after 22 years he sang his first song again in film Alam Ara-56- though no record was issued for it. When he acted in the third version of Aalam Ara in 73, he became the first male actor to have worked in 3 films with the same title, from the very first Talkie film. The next and the only other actor to achieve this feat was Ashok kumar, who acted in Kangan-39, kangan-59 and kangan-72. The only female actress to achieve this feat was Sulochana ( Ruby Meyers) who had acted in Anarkali-28, Anarkali-35 and Anarkali-53.

Today’s song is the second song in a span of one month, which talks of ‘going to Bombay’, after a song from film ‘Kirti’-42, posted on 19-7-2018. The singer’s name of today’s song is not mentioned in HFGK. I hear 2 separate voices in the song, but people with better hearing than me can know more about the voices.

“Jeene Do”(1948) was directed by Adi F Kika and K A Majid for Jai Hind Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Menaka Devi, Harish, Pannalal, Kaiser, Shanta Kunwar, Ghulam Rasool, Faizbai, Leela Gupte, Chhota Shankar etc in it.

This “stunt” movie had nine songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jeene Do”(1948) to aappear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naashaad.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Geeta Dutt was the only female playback singer in the movie, it appears that she sang for the leading lady, who could be Menaka devi, going by the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This lovely joie de vivre song becomes the 400th song from movies of 1948 to appear in the blog. This year thus joins years from 1949 till 1961 that already have more than 400 songs each in the blog. Movies released in all years from 1948 till 1961 with 400 plus songs in the blog- this is a nice little achievement for us. Movies of these 14 years combine to have as many as 6584 songs in the blog !


Song-Pyaar kiya tab jaana (Mitti Ke Khilaune)(1948) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
hai dil ka chain ganwaana
aur apna aap mitaana mitaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun kyun bairan raat sataati hai
kyun bairan raat sataati hai
kyun aah nikalti
kyun bhaaye neer bahaana bahaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun dil mein dard sa rehta hai
kyun dil mein dard sa rehta hai
kyun chehra zard sa rehta hai
kyun chehra zard sa rehta hai
kyu bhool gaye muskaana muskaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

kyun baadal ghir ghir aate hain
kyun badal ghir ghir aate hain
kyun jee mein aag lagaate hain
kyu jee me aag lagaate hain
saawan kyun hai suhaana suhaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana
pyaar kiya tab jaana ho jaana re
pyaar kiya tab jaana

It appears that Mohan Pictures, Bombay were on a spree to make movies begging with the word “Jaadui”. They had released three such movies in 1948 which went under titles like “Jaadui Shehnaai”, Jaadui Angoothhi”and “Jaadui Sindoor”. They were followed by “Jaadui Chitra” and “Jaadui Bansari”.

Advertisement given in magazines those days suggest that these movies were smashing the box office. 🙂 When I search for the songs of these movies, I find that not a single song from these “Jaadui ..” movies is showcased in the blog. In other words, the songs of these movies failed to make it big and they are not available all that easily.

“Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) was directed by A M Khan. The movie had Husn Ara, Anil Kumar, Devraj, Kesari etc in it. This movie , a “musical thriller”, had 10 songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hamida Bano and A R Qureshi. Roopbani is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi, who was none other than the famous tabla player All Rakkha Qureshi, father of another Tabla wizard Zakir Hussain.

Here is this lovely romantic song from “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948). Only the 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.

With this song, “Jaadui Angoothhi”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hamaari gali aaya na karo (Jaadui Angoothhi)(1948) Singers-Hamida Bano, A R Qureshi, Lyrics-Roopbani, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo
baaman ke chhore

najariya na hamse ladaaya karo
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo

khidki mein aa kar chunariya hilaa kar
khidki mein aa kar chunariya hilaa kar
ishaaron se hamko bulaaya na karo
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo

chalte ho jab tum seena nikaale
chalte ho jab tum seena nikaale
dil mera kehta hai usko bulaa le
dil mera kehta hai usko bulaa le
aankhon se jaadoo chalaaya na karo
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo

chalti hai jab tum ghoonghat nikaale
chalti hai jab tum ghoonghat nikaale
uspe hain man mein laakhon uchhaale
maathe pe bindiya lagaaya na karo
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo

baaman ke chhore
na gore na kaale
najariya na hamse ladaaya karo
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo o o
Hamaari gali aaya na karo
