“Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) was a mythological (bhakti pradhan) movie which was directed by Shanti Kumar for Jayshakti Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Anant Marathe, Ameerbai Karnataki, Shashi Kapoor (senior), Pande, Ved Prakash, Laxman, Brahmbhatt, Dubey, Sinha, Om Prakash, Shukla, Sitaram etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it and HFGK does not contain details of singers for any songs.

Here is the first song from “Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) to appear in the blog. Though HFGK is silent about the singer, listening to the song leavs us in no doubt that this song is sung by Rafi. It is one of the three songs in this movie that are known to contain the voice of Rafi and find mention in Rafi’s excel sheet.

Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

The song can be described as a black humour genre of song. It describes an eighty year old man desiring to marry a young woman but dies just as he tries to climb on the ghodi and thus spares the would be bride and others much agony.

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

With this song, “Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Assi baras ka boodhha baaba karne chala hai aaj lagan (Bhakt Gopal Bhaiyya)(1948) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Shankarrao Vyas

Lyrics

assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
maut ke panje se bachne ko
byaahne chala hai nayi dulhan
assi baras ka boodha

baalon mein kaali syaahi lagaaye
aji vastron se wo ang chhupaaye
dagmag dagmag naar hilaaye
thumak thumak kar paanv badhaaye
maut ki raani khadi pukaare
kya man mein ho raha magan
assi baras ka boodha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
assi baras ka boodha

paad padosi kahe deewana
aji buddhi ka kuchh nahin thikana
ladki ke ladke aa bolen
byaahne chale bhai naani naana
ladkon ke ladke bolen
boodhe baba ko phir aaya bachpan
mere baaba ko aaya phir bachpan
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala hai aaj lagan
assi baras ka boodha

wo kas ke kamar taiyyaar hua
jhat ghode per aswaar hua
thhes lagi ghoda bidka
bewde ka beda paar hua
shaadi ke taraane band huye
shaadi ke taraane
shaadi ke taraane band huye
chautarfa phail gaya maatam
assi baras ka booddha baba
karne chala thha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

chauri se ban gai chita
aur jaame se ban gaya kafan
aur jaame ka ban gaya kafan
baandh boondhne chale baaraati
ladke karen sab kriya karam
sage sambandhi khaayen laddu
sage sambandhi
sage sambandhi khaayen laddu
sabki door hui uljhan
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala tha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

ladki ka neelaam kiya thha
maat pita ne lekar dhan
aji maat pita ne lekar dhan
boodhe ki sun kar ke mrityu
wo bhi manaane lage jashan
kar di jawaan se shaadi
kar di jawaan se shaadi uski
ladki ka khul gaya karam
assi baras ka booddha baaba
karne chala tha naya lagan
assi baras ka boodha

dhan ke lobhi socho samjho
paise per mat becho dharam
aji paise per mat becho dharam
garib gaay ki kanya par kasaai ka mat karo karam
apna jeewan maran sudhaaro
apna jeewan maran sudhaaro
baar baar kehte hain hum
assi baras ka booddha baba
karne chala thha naya lagan

“Bihaari”(1948) was directed by K D Katkar and A R Zameendaar for Samajchitra, Bombay.. This “Social” movie had B Nandrekar, Surekha, H Prakash, Nimbalkar, Samson, Sheikh, Fayazbai, Shabnam etc in it.

This obscure movie had ten songs in it that were penned by four lyricists and composed by two music directors.

One song from the movie was covered in the blog some three years ago. Here is the second song from “Bihaari”(1948) to appear in the blog.

This rare song is uploaded on YT by our own Mr Sadanand Kamath. normally I avoid discussing songs uploaded by him, preferring that he himself covers the song. But he has given us all an open offer to discuss these songs. Moreover, he on these days has left foor his annual activity, viz on a trek to mountains of Himalayas, so he may be back only after a few weeks.

This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. This is the only song in the movie whose lyricist as well as music director are unknown. The movie had Naresh Bhattacharya and Ramkrishna Shinde as the two music directors. It appears to me that the music is more Mumbai school rather than Bangal school so I have considered this song as a composition by Ramkrishn Shinde. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie, its lyricist and music director and also on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala long back in 2014.

Today’s song is from the film Ghar Ki Izzat (1948). It is a lively duet of Shamshad Begum and Ram Kamlani. The film is produced and directed by Ram Daryani, under the banner of Murli Cinetone, Bombay. Music was given by Pt Gobind Ram and songs and dialogues were by Ishwar Chandra Kapoor. The cast of the film was Mumtaz Shanti, Dilip Kumar, Gope, Gulab, Dixit, Manorama, Jeevan, Suleiman etc etc.

In the early decades of talkie era, i.e. in the 1930s and 40s, many Muslim actors and actresses took on Hindu names, for obvious reasons. Here are some such examples – Mumtaz Shanti (real name – Mumtaz Begum), Renuka Devi (Begum Khurshid Mirza), Neena (Shahida), Meena Shorey (Khursheed Jehan), Geeta Nizami (Rasheeda Begum), Madhubala (Mumtaz Jehan), Indurani (Ishrat Jehan), Veena (Tajour Sultana), Shyama (Khurshid Akhtar), Dilip Kumar (Yusuf Khan), Jayant (Zakaria Khan), Kumar (Syed Ali Hasan Zaidi), Suresh (Naseem Ahmed), Sudhir (Shah Zamaan Khan) and many more.

However, not all did this. Those who did not change name were Mehboob Khan, Mazhar Khan, Ashraf Khan, Najmul Hasan, Zubeida, Noorjehan, Khursheed etc etc.

After Independence, this trend diminished, but a new trend started – that of taking on a screen name other than the real name. Some examples are Sunil Dutt, Balraj Sahni, Sanjeev kumar, Raaj Kumar, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Akshay Kumar etc. A full article can be written on this subject, but this is enough for now.

Film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ was the only film Mumtaz Shanti did with Dilip kumar. Compared to young Dilip Kumar, Mumtaz Shanti was more successful and experienced with films like ‘Basant’ (1942) and ‘Kismet’ (1943). She had worked with top actors of that era, like Ashok Kumar. In this film, you can see an awkward Dilip Kumar and a vibrant and seasoned actress Mumtaz Shanti.

Mumtaz Shanti or Mumtaz Begum was born in 1922 at village Dinga in Punjab (now in Pakistan). She lost her parents early and she was brought up by her uncle who was a police constable. After his transfer to Lahore, Mumtaz was able to continue her schooling. She learnt dancing and music. She was also an expert in household chores. At the start of filmi career, she was at first rejected by Shorey Pictures. But then the famous writer/lyricist Wali Saheb helped her and took her to Calcutta’s East India Film Co. to work in a Punjabi film ‘Sohni Kumharan’ (1937). She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambey Di Daali’ (1941) in Calcutta. Now the things were different and she was invited by Shorey Pictures to Lahore, to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘ (1942). This film was immensely successful and ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies  offered her a role in their film ‘Basant’ (1942). She came to Bombay and did Basant and then ‘Kismet’ (1943). Both the films were hits all over India.  Mumtaz was good looking, tall and lithe, so looked attractive. After ‘Kismet’ she became a free lancer and worked with many different studios. Her notable films are ‘Badalti Duniya’ and ‘Sawaal’ (1943), ‘Bharthari’, ‘Lady Doctor’ and ‘Pagli Duniya’ (1944), ‘Chaand Chakori’ (1945), ‘Shravan Kumar’, ‘Dharti’, ‘Magadhraj’ and ‘Pujari’ (1946), ‘Dekhojee’ and ‘Doosri Shadi’ (1947), ‘Padmini’, ‘Heer Ranjha’ and ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’ (1948), ‘Putli’, ‘Biwi’ and ‘Aahuti’ (1950). Her last film in India was ‘Zamaane Ki Hawa’ (1952). In all she worked in 21 Hindi and 4 Punjabi films. She did 2 films in Calcutta, 4 in Lahore and the rest in Bombay.

She married lyricist/writer/director Wali Saheb in 1947. He directed her in 3 films in India. He was very strict and forced her to come to studios only in burqa. She was not allowed to talk to anyone. No one was allowed to touch her, even in any scene. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Wali Saheb did 3-4 films in Pakistan, without much success. He passed away in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti passed away in 1993/94, unsung and unknown in Pakistan.

After Independence films were being made on social values which the Indian people wanted to inculcate in their new life, like importance of joint families, need to do hard work, need to abolish bad customs like dowry, bridging the gap between the rich and the poor, importance of education, women’s emancipation, abolition of castes and untouchability, respecting elders and traditions etc. Thus it will be seen that every film had some or the other message for the society.

This was also one such film, in which the makers stressed the need to strengthen the joint family tradition and to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor. The film had become quite popular, as it did not sound like a propaganda film but the message was conveyed in a very entertaining way. The songs were good and became popular. The music of this film is composed by Pt Gobind Ram.

Pt Gobind Ram was a highly respected composer in the industry for his originality. Stalwarts like C Ramchandra considered Sajjaad Husain and Pt Gobind Ram ji as the original composers. It is stated by Pankaj Raag in his book ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’ that in the mid 1940s, “. . . when K Asif planned his magnum opus ‘Mughal e Azam’, he had initially engaged Gobindram ji as the music director”. It is another thing that the film was delayed, for other reasons, by almost 15 years. Almost all the main players in the film got changed during this period of delay, including the music director. During his career, Pt Gobind Ram gave music to 32 films from 1937 to 1955, composing 302 songs.

Just before writing this article, I saw this film on YouTube to refresh my memory. I had seen the film in the early 1950s in its second run in Hyderabad. The cast of the film includes the name Dixit.  Only a handful readers will recollect who he was, but there was a time in the early talkie era of 1930s and the 40s when he was a popular name. He and actor Ghory had formed a comic pair on the lines of the Laurel and Hardy team of the English cinema. In those days 4 comedians were popular – Dixit, Ghory, Kesari and Charlie.

Manohar Janardan Dikshit (this became Dixit in film line) was born on 12-11-1906 at Sinnar in Nashik district of Maharashtra. It seems, his arrival in this world was predicted by a sadhu. Somehow, in Dixit’s career, roles of sadhu played a vital role. He acted as a sadhu in as many as 31 films. His father was a district judge and was very strict at home. Due to frequent transfers, Dixit lost interest in studies. After two unsuccessful attempts in matriculation, he stopped going to school.

He started his film career as an assistant cameraman in Navjeevan Studio, with the help of Mama Varerkar, a noted Marathi writer who was associated with many studios of Hindi films. Of course Dixit did not learn anything of cinematography and did only manual works like carrying the camera etc. On the 14th November 1929, he faced the camera for his first role in the silent film ‘Sparkling Youth’ with P Jairaj and Madhav Kale. In Navjeevan Studios he did 3 more silent films and then joined the prospering, upcoming Ranjit Film company. Here he met his future partner Nazir Ahmed Ghory, who was born on 11-8-1901 at Bombay. Ghory was a graduate in those days. They paired in their first comedy film, ‘Char Chakram’ (1932), directed by Jayant Desai. The four ‘chakrams‘ in the film were Dixit, Ghory, Eddie Bilimoria and Madhuri. It was a hit film and the comedy pair became famous. They copied Laurel and Hardy. They even looked like them. Dixit was the Hardy part of the team.

They continued working together till 1947. I do not know exactly, but my guess is that they worked together in about 20 films. After partition, Ghory migrated to Pakistan and Dixit worked alone. Dixit was described by Baburao Patel as ‘our best comedian’. He was the darling of film critics too. Unfortunately, all the Ranjit Films where in they worked together were destroyed along with other negatives and except for few photos and stories about them, nothing remains now. Dixit worked in 4 silent and 66 Talkie films in 17 years’ time. For a person carrying 220 pounds weight, it was really creditable.

After the film ‘Ghar Ki Izzat’, Dixit suffered from a heart attack and he passed away on 29-6-1949 (adapted from Eena Meena Deeka and MuVyz, with thanks.)

The story of the film,

Seth Chunilal (Dixit) is a rich person. His daughter Radhika (Manorama) has married Chaman (Gope) who is their ‘ghar jamaai‘. He does not work anywhere. Radhika’s mother (Gulab) taunts him every now and then and one day, frustrated Radhika leaves the house along with Chaman. They start an insurance business and prosper in a village nearby. Chunilal’s son Chander (Dilip Kumar) becomes a lawyer. He visits his sister in the village. In same village, lives Roopa (Mumtaz Shanti) with her two brothers (Jeevan and Suleiman).

Chander gets introduced to this family, falls in love with Roopa and they get married. Upon coming to the city home, Chander’s mother starts taunting the new bahu on her poverty. Bahu, being adarsh bhartiya nari tolerates everything, but Chander gets frustrated and starts drinking. Sister Radhika and Chaman bring him to their house.

Chander’s mother and father start repenting and finally they go to Chander and Roopa, beg their pardon and bring them back with honour. They even call Chander and Radhika, but they refuse to come back, as they have prospered now.

So, all is well that ends well.

 

This film has 11 songs. According to the blog 6 songs are already discussed, but it transpires that one song ‘Ae Dard Zara Dum Le’ posted on 17-5-2011 and included as this film’s song, is actually a song from film ‘Zamana’ (1938). It was only used in this film as a radio song. So actually only 5 songs are covered. Today’s song is the 6th song from this film. In the video, Gope and Manorama singing this melodious song. The newer generation folks will remember the Chachi in the 1972 film ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’. Ah yes, this is the same Manorama.

Lyrics 

aankhon se aankhon ko
aankhon se aankhon ko do chaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao
aankhon se aankhon ko
aankhon se aankhon ko do chaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

hai teer nigaahon mein
aur bijli adaaon mein
hai teer nigaahon mein
aur bijli adaaon mein
bas yun hi mere dil pe
tum vaar kiye jaao
bas yun hi mere dil pe
tum vaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

aankhon se aankhon ko
aankhon se aankhon ko do chaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

o mast nazar aaj tu
masti ko luta de
aur chaand se chehre se zara
zulfen hataa de
jo dil mein tere hai
jo dil mein tere hai
wo nigaahon se suna de
ulfat ke nibhaane ka iqraar kiye jaao
ulfat ke nibhaane ka iqraar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

aankhon se aankhon ko
aankhon se aankhon ko do chaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

pehlu mein mere chhota sa ik
sehma hua hai dil
har taar hai is dil ka
tere pyaar ke kaabil
aa dekh sajaa rakhi hai
kis thaath se mehfil
aa dekh sajaa rakhi hai
kis thaath se mehfil
ji jaan ka nazraana sarkaar liye jaao
ji jaan ka nazraana sarkaar liye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

aankhon se aankhon ko
aankhon se aankhon ko do chaar kiye jaao
pyaar kiye jaao ji
pyaar kiye jaao

आँखों से आँखों को
आँखों से आँखों को दो चार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ
आँखों से आँखों को
आँखों से आँखों को दो चार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

है तीर निगाहों में
और बिजली अदाओं में
है तीर निगाहों में
और बिजली अदाओं में
बस यूं ही मेरे दिल पे
तुम वार किए जाओ
बस यूं ही मेरे दिल पे
तुम वार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

आँखों से आँखों को
आँखों से आँखों को दो चार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

ओ मस्त नज़र आज तू
मस्ती को लुटा दे
और चाँद से चेहरे से ज़रा
ज़ुल्फें हटा दे
जो दिल में तेरे है
जो दिल में तेरे है
वो निगाहों से सुना दे
उल्फ़त के निभाने का इक़रार किए जाओ
उल्फ़त के निभाने का इक़रार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

आँखों से आँखों को
आँखों से आँखों को दो चार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

पहलू में मेरे छोटा सा इक
सहमा हुआ है दिल
हर तार है इस दिल का
तेरे प्यार के क़ाबिल
आ देख सजा राखी है
किस ठाठ से महफिल
आ देख सजा राखी है
किस ठाठ से महफिल
जी जान का नज़राना सरकार लिए जाओ
जी जान का नज़राना सरकार लिए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

आँखों से आँखों को
आँखों से आँखों को दो चार किए जाओ
प्यार किए जाओ जी
प्यार किए जाओ

“Banjaare” (1948), by now an obscure movie, was directed by Hiren Bose for Hiren Bose Productions, Calcutta. This movie had Baby Deepanjan, Banshree, Malwika, Pramod Chandra, Jeewanlal, Kamal Mishra, A Malik etc in it.

The movie had nine obscure songs in it according to HFGK. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs.

Here is the first song from “Banjaare” (1948) to appear in the blog. The singer is not known as far as HFGK is concerned. The uploader has mentioned the singer as Savitri Ghosh, spelled as Sabitri Ghosh in Bangla style.

Zakir Hussain is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anupam Ghatak.

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 this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, the movie “Banjaare” (1948) as well as the singer Savitri Ghosh make their respective debuts in the blog.

“Mera Munna”(1948) was directed by Vishram Bedekar for Minerva Movieone, Bombay. The movie had Motilal, Nayantara, E Tarapore, Leela Mishra, Seeta Bose, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Anita Sharma, Sadat Ali, Ramesh Sahgal, Hafeeza etc in it.

This obscure “social” movie had seven very obscure songs in it. HFGK is silent about the names of singers of these songs.

One song from the movie has been covered in the blog in 2015. That song was found to contain the voice of Mukesh (along with Lalita Deulkar) and it turned out to be an as yet undiscovered Mukesh song !

Other songs are just as obscure. seeing that their singers are not mentioned in HFGK, some of them may also turn out to be significant discoveries.

Here is the second song from “Mera Munna”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is a “mother child” song which turns out to contain the voice of Lalita Deulkar. I hope I have identified her voice correctly alongwith the uploader who also mentions this name as the singer.

Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

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


Song-Aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale (Mera Munna)(1948) Singer-Lalita Deulkar, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

Aayi hoon main pyaar bhar dil ko sambhaale
meri duniya ke ujaale
meri duniya ke ujaale
aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale

tu apni hansi mein mere aansoo bhi chhupa le
tu apni hansi mein mere aansoo bhi chhupa le
tu aa ke lipat jaa
tu aa ke lipat jaa
meri mamta ke gale se
ik baar mujhe pyaar se maa
maa kah ke bulaa le
maa kah ke bulaa le
meri duniya ke ujaale
aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale
meri duniya ke ujaale
meri duniya ke ujaale

doley hai tera kaun
doley hai tera kaun
?? dil mera doley
yoon hauley hauley
yoon hauley hauley
dheere dheere
chaal dikhaa le
tu chaal dikhaa le
meri duniya ke ujaale
aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale
meri duniya ke ujaale
meri duniya ke ujaale

o o o o
in pyaal bhali totli baaton pe main qulbaan
in pyaar bhari totli baaton pe main qurbaan
keh kar mera parnaam
keh kar mera parnaam
baabu ko manaa le
baabu ko manaa le
meri duniya ke ujaale
aayi hoon main pyaar bhare dil ko sambhaale
meri duniya ke ujaale
meri duniya ke ujaale

Lyrics

ab aaja bedardi aaja

chanda hansi udaaye
dil baar baar ghabraaye
koi ghadi ghadi yaad aaye

saajna aaja aaja

baalma aaja
hai honthon pe fariyaad
saajna aaja aaja
mere dil ki veena boley
kisi ki holey
mere dil ki veena boley
kisi ki holey
mere jiya baawra doley
mere jiya baawra doley
aa sun ja aur suna ja
aa sun ja aur suna ja
dil ki haaye haaye
dil baar baar ghabraaye
koi ghadi ghadi yaad aaye
dil baar baar ghabraaye
