Lyrics

chori chori mat dekh
chori chori mat dekh balam
bholi dulhan sharmaayegi
dulhan ko najar lag jaayegi

“Surajmukhi”(1950) was directed by O P Dutta for Madhuban, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Shyam, Gope, Yashodhara Katju, Hafeez Khan, Randheer, Mukri, Cuckoo, Durga Khote etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Surajmukhi”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The movie had three lyricists (Rajinder Krishan, Aabid Gulrez and Gulshan Jalalabadi) but no lyricists have been mentioned against eight of the songs in HFGK. However, the uploader of this song on YT has mentioned Rajinder Krishan as the lyricist. so I have gone with that.

Geeta Dutt had sung seven songs in the movie. This movie also had two songs by Lata and one by Shamshad Begam. So it would seem that Geeta Dutt had sung for the leading lady viz Rehana. However, only the audio of the song is available and so we can only guess about the picturisation. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this rare song.


Song-Aabaad rahe tera ghar munshi…karen kya bata o bhula dene waale (Surajmukhi)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

aabaad rahe tera ghar munshi
khat likh saajan ke naam
pardes mein jaane waale piya
nahin tere bina aaraam
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale
hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale
karen kya bata

hai ro ro ke lut jaana aa aa aa
kismat hamaari
kismat hamaari
tujhe kya kahen o bhula dene waale
tujhe kya kahen o bhula dene waale
hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale
karen kya bata

rula kar to aa jaa aa aa
mita kar to aa jaa
mita kar to aa jaa
tujhe dhoondte hain dua dene waale
tujhe dhoondte hain dua dene waale
hamen apna keh kar mita dene waale
karen kya bata o bhula dene waale
karen kya bata

Today’s song is from Dolti Naiya-1950. This film was made by Shaan E Hind Pictures, Bombay. It had music by Pt.Ram Prasad Sharma. The film’s 10 songs were written by a record number of 8 Lyricists and were sung also by 8 singers. In those days, it must have been a record, I guess. The cast of the film was Amarnath, Nigar Sultana, Shyama Dulari, Veena Kohli, Cuckoo, Bhudo Advani, Mukri, Mirza Musharraf, Munshi Munakka and others.

When I was in school, every year a “Self Governance Day” used to be celebrated in our school. I do not know whether this was a practice elsewhere. On this day selected senior students of class 12th standard used to run the school. Head Master, Supervisor, Sports teacher, Teachers and even Peons’ roles were done by the students themselves. When I reached 12th standard, I was very eager to become a Teacher on this day. I was made a teacher of English language of 7th standard and was given a lesson to be taken on that day. All students looked forward to run the school and become teachers on this day.

I think, this feeling of ruling or being in authority is in every field as a dormant wish. A Clerk looks forward becoming a Manager and a Manager wants to become General Manager. An MLA wants to become an MP and MP wants to become a Minister. Film industry is not too different. Every actress wants to become a Heroine, and actors dream of becoming Director some day. There are several examples when all this has actually happened.

Many successful and famous actors have tried their hand at being a Director of a film ( conversely, many directors also were eager to act in a film. Even such examples are there). Few examples of some actors directing films are Dev Anand-19 films ( he takes the cake), Shammi Kapoor-2 films, Balraj Sahni-1 film, Rajesh Khanna-1 film. Even Comedians like Asrani-5 films and Deven verma-4 films are into this. The case of comedian Radha kishen, who produced a film and when it flopped due to delay and loans mounted, committed suicide.

Some examples of old time actors are Prem Adib-1 film, M.Kumar-2 films, Shahu Modak-1 film. Among actresses, from Fatma Begum-8 films to Hema Malini-4 films, examples are less. Surprisingly, leading actors like Amitabh Bachhan, Dilip kumar, Sanjeev kumar etc never went this way. I wish Dilip kumar had become a Director openly rather than making his directors’ lives miserable by interfering in their work, as a nasty habit.

Mirza Musharraf was a comedian of old times. Though he was successful as an actor, he too wanted to become a Director. Today’s film Dolti naiya-50 is his attempt at directing a movie.

In my quest for information on old time actors and other artistes, I came across many good and some not so good experiences. When I first interviewed Ramesh ji, Bhudo Advani’s son, he told me that their family friend Mirza Musharraf’s daughter also stayed nearby. I took her address and reached her house. Her husband did not allow me to meet her, as they were Muslims, and perhaps because it was my first visit to them. When I explained what I wanted, he expected some money. I told him that this is my hobby and I do not do this for money, he was very skeptic. However, after my persistent visits to him,he relented. Her husband, Mr. Muneer Khan,( now deceased) ex production manager of Firoze Khan, gave me some information.

The name of MIRZA MUSHARRAF AGHA may not ring any bells in the newer generation, as he was a comedian in the 30s and 40s-till the late 60s.
During the 30s and 40s there were quite a few real comedians, who regaled the audiences with their humour. Comedians like V.H.Desai, Ghory and Dikshit (the jodi like Laurel and Hardy),Mirza Musharraf, Bhudo Advani, Noor Mohd.Charlie, Yakub (he had travelled to 15 countries including UK and USA,before joining films) and Gope, Fatty Prasad and Durga Mota were much in demand for comic roles in the films.With the times,one by one,all went behind the curtains, giving way to newer set of comedians like Bhagwan, Sunder, Radhkishen, Mukri, I.S.Johar, Majnu,etc. Nowadays, of course, Comedians have disappeared from films, because almost everyone in a film does Comedy, these days.

Artistes fading away is a natural phenomena, but out of the above comedians, the end of Durga Mota was very pathetic and touching.
Durga Mota or Durga Prasad was very fat and this fatness which fetched him name and fame in the industry also became the cause of his death. In 1947,there were riots everywhere. Durga was in Lahore. He wanted to come back to India like other thousands.He came to Lahore station and boarded the train. Just then a frenzied mob came to the station and started killing the passengers. People ran helter skelter and saved themselves, but due to his fatness Durga Mota could not run and he was slaughtered on the station of Lahore itself.

Mirza Musharraf was born in a sophisticated educated family, on 12-6-1912, at Shujanabad-Punjab. His father was an inspector of Police and claimed to be a scion of the Royal Mughal family. He matriculated from Lahore in 1930. He was keen on becoming a Journalist, so he worked in Daily Zamindar, Tariyaq and Shahid. He was a Nationalist, joined Congress and became Secretary of Lahore Congress committee. He was imprisoned but father got him released. He decided to change profession to films.

He got a small role of a party guest in film ” Qazak ki beti-37′, which was being made by one of his acquaintances in Lahore. His second film was Prem Yatra-37. These were uncredited and insignificant roles, but they gave his clever mind a good idea of film line and acting.

A R Kardar who was into films was known to him in Lahore. Kardar took Mirza to Calcutta. There he acted in film Milap-37. The Hero was Gul Hamid,who died in between and was replaced by Prithviraj Kapoor. Mirza also acted in film Mandir-37. When Kardar shifted to Bombay, he too shifted.

He was very fond of writing Lyrics.He came to Bombay to write film songs and was employed by General films.Those days educated persons were eagerly employed by film studios. He first wrote Lyrics for A.R.Kardar’s film “Baghbaan”-1938. This was the film in which K N Singh did his first role as a villain. In this period, Mirza got married also.

During shootings Kardar required an artist and Mirza was called to fill up the slot, as per the studio norms. Mirza had no dialogues, but he exhibited excellent use of facial expressions and comic timing.This actually killed his dream of becoming a lyrics writer, because after that he was made a comedian and got several films. As a comedian,Mirza worked from 1938 to 1972,working in over 400 films. His last film was Roop tera Mastana-1972, where he was credited. Later he made appearance in films like Pathar se takkar-80 and Anjaam khuda jaane-89 uncredited.

When he was on the peak of his career,a happy producer gave his Bungalow at Versova free to him for living.Though Versova was then quite far off and sparsely populated, Mirza lived there like a king.The marriages of both of his daughters took place there.

Mr.Sanjeet Narwekar-the famous Film historian/journalist writes in his book, The story of Hindi Film comedy,about Mirza”. His specialty was interspersing his Hindi dialogues with English words-quite a curiosity in the pre-independence days. He was almost a permanent with V.M.Vyas and played cameo roles in a fairly long career.” According to Saadat Hasan Manto in his book,stars of another sky, -whichever film he acted, he used to be the darling of the Heroes. He was particularly liked by Kardar, K.Asif and Rafiq Ghaznavi. In many films Mirza lip synched songs, but only in ONE film,he got to sing himself. That was the film Gharib ka laal-1939, in a duet. He also sung few lines in film Piya Milan-45 and CAPTAIN KISHORE-1957. He sang along with Mohd.Rafi and Tun Tun.

In one of the interviews Mirza gave to magazine Shama, in August 1981, he described some of his experiences in the film world. This interview is a part of the book ” Ye un dinon ki baat hai” written by my friend Yasir Abbasi. Here are few of his stories. In Bombay, he got to know Nazir-actor, director, producer and owner of Hind Pictures studios, and his nephew K.Asif (Mughal-E-Azam fame). Asif did no work, so Nazir opened a Tailor’s shop for him, but still he did nothing. His interests were different.

Mirza also came closer to director S M Yousuf. Mirza was present in his marriage to actress Nigar Sultana. Mirza describes how K.Asif eloped with Nazir’s wife (and his Mami- aunt) Sitara Devi. Asif later married Yousuf’s wife Nigar Sultana also. Still later Asif married Dilip kumar’s sister too. Asif was notorious in such matters.

Mirza knew Mohd. Rafi since Lahore days. When Rafi came to Bombay, Mirza introduced Rafi to many film people. Mirza claims that Rafi’s first Hindi recorded song was from film Kul Kalank-45, ” Topiwale Babu’ – a duet with Amirbai Karnataki. This song was shot on Mirza and Amirbai on screen. Rafi, it seems, got Rs. 75 for this song. Mirza acted in film Grihasthi-48, which became a Hit film, running for 105 weeks in Bombay. In a public poll, Mirza got a second prize for acting in this film (first was Yaqub) and he got a Gold medal of 3 Tolas. In his difficult days, Mirza sold it, says he.
There are many more anecdotes he describes, but may be some other time.

Mirza Musharraf died in 1991.

Film Industry is one industry which grew very fast. Firstly, there was no competition (except from AIR for entertainment) and secondly, joining this industry needed no special qualifications. Moreover, from the beginning, the ROI (Returns On the Investment) ratio was quite high,once you took care of few parameters like, good actors, good songs and a mix of Romance and Comedy !

Thousands of aspirants, the Good looking, the Bad looking and the Ugly looking rushed to Bombay, Lahore and Calcutta to try their luck. Tawaifs and stage artists had an easy entry, so was for the Handsome and Muscular bodied males.

The studio system took care of grooming its employees. Most people were hired without any specific job description. When needed, the script writer or the Lyricist had to act in the film, and Choreographer-Dance Master in those days-had to take up Direction- if needed. Artists graduated from menial jobs to important positions.That is how Choreographer Guru Dutt became a Director and a Hero, Lyricist and writer J.S.Casshyap became actor/singer, or Amiya Chakrawarty became famous Director from being the Canteen Manager in Bombay Talkies, Ashok kumar became Hero from being a Technician in Camera Department and an Extra working as one of the 40 thieves in ” Alibaba and 40 Thieves”-1929, became the Movie Mughal, Director Mehboob Khan.

Those times were different.Industry needed people in all departments. Heads of Studios were like expert jewellers. They knew how to nurture talents. Successful strugglers had empathy towards existing strugglers and gave them opportunity to showcase their skills. Studios got right persons for right jobs. Real Talents survived, rest disappeared.

There were many One timers, who acted in only 1-2 films, directed just 1 film, produced 1 movie, sung only few songs or gave music to only 1 or 2 films. Luck also played an important role. Artists seeking opportunities in Music Departments like singing and composing were many. Most got chances,few prospered.

But it is important to note that every One timer was contributing towards Industry’s growth. Like every drop makes an ocean, these one timers or short distance runners also gave their might to the industry. Those who disappeared after a short performance remained alive through their contribution on record. Hundreds of aspirants came to become Music Directors, only few made the grade, survived and the rest simply vanished.These short time passengers or composers had their time of glory too. Their songs were cherished but their names were forgotten.

Before I proceed further, can you tell me what is the common link in the following names ?

Pyarelal-Ganesh-Naresh-Mahesh-Anand-Gorakh

They are all brothers and sons of Pandit RAMPRASAD SHARMA. He is the Music Director of today’s film Dolti Naiya-1950.
.
Pt.Ramprasad Sharma, born in 1900, belonged to Gorakhpur in United provinces(today’s U.P.). Seeing his love for music, he was brought to Bharatpur State by the king’s bandmaster. He played Trumpet here, then played in Agra Military Band and ended up joining a Circus as a Band Master himself. He toured Delhi, Lahore and Calcutta ,where he settled for some time.He married a local Post Master’s daughter and also worked for Columbia and New Theatres. By now he was an expert in 10 instruments and knew all Ragas.

He came to Bombay in 1938 and played in many studios. His first film as MD was Nayi Baat-1947, then Taqdeerwale-48, Shakti-48, Bedard-49, Banu- 49, Anyay-49, Dolti Naiyya-50 and finally Magic Carpet-64.

His knowledge of Music was so deep that many Composers like,Kalyan ji, Roshan, Uttamsingh, Hridaynath Mangeshkar etc came to him to learn notations in which he was a master. Probably, having played as a Band Master helped him.Those days, very few musicians knew how to write music in Notations. This art was carried further by his another son Ganesh.

Despite his knowledge of music, he failed as a composer himself and worked/played for other Music Directors like Naushad, K.Dutta, C. Ramchandra etc. His trumpet playing in the famous song of Rafi ” Suhani raat dhal chuki” (film Dulari-1949) is unforgettable.

Pt.Ramprasad will be remembered by many composers as their teacher. His music was melodious, his Luck was not too kind on him, though.

His two sons Pyarelal and Ganesh became famous composers.

Pt.Ramprasad died on 22-8-1995 at Mumbai.

Today’s song is a very melodious one – as such, I like Durrani as a singer. He has sung one of the best songs of Hindi films, in my opinion (Neend hamari, khwaab tumhare-Nai kahani-1943). Pt. Ramprasad’s tune and music is just superb. To give such a music in 1950 was in itself an achievement. When I hear today’s song, I feel a similarity to Talat’s song ‘ Meri yaad mein na aansoo bahana” from film Madhosh-51. I may be wrong also. Alas, Film industry does not go by quality, it goes by measurable success in terms of popularity of songs. Whom to blame, music lovers or the industry ?
Enjoy the song.


Song- Meri zindgi bhi koi zindagi hai (Dolti Naiyya)(1950) Singer- G M Durrani, Lyricist- Zafar Malihabadi, MD- Pt. Ram Prasad

Lyrics

meri zindagi bhi koi zindagi hai
na dil mein umangen na lab par hansi hai
meri zindagi bhi

kiya hai muqaddar ne barbaad aisa
kiya hai muqaddar ne barbaad aisa
jidhar dekhta hoon nahin koi apna
jidhar dekhta hoon nahin koi apna
nahin koi apna
nazar ik zamaane se badle huye hain
meri zindagi bhi

mere dil ko hardam dukhaati hai duniya
mere dil ko hardam dukhaati hai duniya
tadapta hoon main muskuraati hai duniya
tadapta hoon mai muskuraati hai duniya
muskurati hai duniya
mujhe kis khata par saza mil rahi hai
meri zindagi bhi

sunaata raha laakh ghamon ka fasaana
sunaata raha laakh ghamon ka fasaana
kisi ne magar dard dil ka na jaana
kisi ne magar dard dil ka na jaana
dil ka na jaana
zamaane ne kab bekason ki suni hai
meri zindagi bhi koi zindagi hai
na dil mein umangen na lab par hansi hai
meri zindagi bhi

Hearty Greetings to all readers, on the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri-2020. On this day, I present a special song. Today’s song is actually not a song in the usual sense, but it is “Shiv Stuti”, rendered by Geeta Dutt, Badrinath Vyas and Chorus, in the film Har Har Mahadev-1950.

Har Har Mahadev-50 was a special movie. It achieved the status of a “Flag Bearer”, for Mythological films to be made in the coming decade of the 50s. It is not that Religious films were not made earlier. In fact, right from 1931 onwards such Dharmik films were being made. However, subsequently, when a variety of Genres came to the films, these movies lagged behind. The first attempt of reviving the religious films came when film Ram Rajya-43 became a Hit film, but in the 40s Stunt films dominated, so this chance subsided. Next when Har Har Mahadev became an extremely successful film, the religious films got a realm boost.

If you look at the type of films made in the 40s and 50s, you will notice a clear shift of the tastes of Indian film audience. The decade of the 30s was of the novelty of Talking films, so people saw whatever was offered to them. But by the 40s, the Industry had become a bubbly young one and films were made as per the budgets available, tastes of the audience and lastly on the choice of the producers.

The first half of the 40s was affected by second world war. This decade brought a new class of investors/financers, who had made easy money ( read Black money) in the war period. They were ready to invest/finance in film making, but their motto was “less investment and more profits”. To achieve this, the only way was to make a C grade stunt/action film. Thus, in this decade, there was a whole lot of C grade films, consisting of Stunt/Action films, Costume dramas, Magic based imaginary films and the likes of their ilk. These films could be made in less money ( according to Bhagwan Dada, a stunt film was made in about 30 to 50 thousand rupees only) and almost at a guaranteed profit of sizable percentage. Thus, so many such films were made that we can label the 40s as ‘the decade of stunt films’. During 1941 to 1950, approximately 210 stunt/action and similar films were made, giving a rough average of 21 films per year, for 10 continuous years !

Mythological/Religious films were being made from 1931 itself. They tried to give them a competition. Though only 80 such films were made in the 40s – 1941 to 1950 – two Block Busters from this religious film genre, gave lot of hopes to makers of such films. One was Ram Rajya-1943 and the other was Har Har Mahadev-1950. In fact, the extra ordinary success of Har Har Mahadev was so encouraging, that producers turned again to making Religious films in the next decade. The cost of making a religious film was much more than producing a C grade stunt film, but the turn over and profit was also many times more than the stunt films. The audience of religious films was mainly from Middle class society, who was now earning enough money to see films.

Due to higher cost of production religious films did not have the same number of films produced in the 50s decade. However 125 films were made from 1951 to 1960, giving an average of 12 films per year or 1 film per month for 10 continuous years. In this period the stunt/action film production diminished considerably – slowly walking towards a natural death of this Genre in due course ! The decade was crowded with Musical, Social and Comedy films. Even religious films provided good songs and music, as against stunt films-where it was non existent. The audience taste spurned the Stunt/action films and those producers too turned to producing religious social, musical and comedy films.

In this process, Har Har Mahadev-50 played a major role. Not only the story, acting, direction and production values were good but its music also played a stellar role ( after Ram Rajya-1943), in reviving the wave of religious films. The credit goes to its Music Director, Avinash Vyas (21-7-12 to 20-8-84). He was comparatively new. It was his just the 5th film. Starting with Mahasati Anusuya-43, he did Lehri Badmash-44, Krishna Bhakta Bodana-44 and Gunsundari-48 till then.

The success of Har Har Mahadev-50 was also due to excellent song lyrics by Ramesh Shastri ( 2-8-1935 to 30-4-2010). He was from village Diyor, Bhavnagar dist .in Gujarat. He went to Benares to study and completed Visharad (equivalent to B.A.). He came back to Ahmedabad and studied in St. Xavier’s college. He did his Ph.D in Sanskrit. He served in Ayurvedic colleges of Bhavnagar, Baroda and Ahmedabad.

When Raj Kapoor advertised for songs for his new film, Barsat, Ramesh Shastri responded with his songs and RK selected his song-“Hawa mein udta jaayen mera laal dupatta mal mal ka”, which became an instant hit and very popular too. Same year he also wrote songs for films Ram Vivah, Shaadi ke baad and Usha Haran. In 1950, he wrote 5 songs for film Har Har Mahadev. One song by Geeta Dutt, “Kankar kankar se main poochhoon, Shankar mera kahan hai” became famous and popular. After this he wrote for his last film Jai Mahakali-51 and stopped film activity.

He retired in 1990. Though Raj Kapoor called him several times, he was not interested in films or settling in Bombay and hence he declined every time. He wrote several Bhajans in Hindi and Gujarati, under the pen name of ” Ram Sharan”. These were broadcast over A.I.R. and Radio Ceylon regularly. He suffered from Cerebral palsy and was handicapped for last 10 years. He died on 30-4-2010).

The lead pair for the film Har Har Mahadev-50 was Trilok Kapoor and Nirupa Roy. After this film both became very famous as Shankar and Parvati. They did 18 films together- all religious films. Trilok Kapoor was born at Multan on 3-3-1882 and was educated at Peshawar. He went to Bombay to join his brother. He got his first film CHAR DARVESH-1933. He went to Calcutta and did some films there. He also worked as assistant to Director Hem Chandra. In the 40s and 50s, His patent role was that of Mahadev. He did 7 films in a row for this role and in all those films Nirupa Roy was Parvati. (However, no one could ever beat the divine pair of Ram and Seeta enacted by Shobhana Samarth and Prem Adib in Ram Rajya-1943).

Trilok Kapoor did about 120 films His last film was a TV film Akanksha, which was released after his death on 23-9-1989.

As per HFGK, Trilok Kapoor the actor sang 1 solo in Aaj ki Duniya and 5 duets in Raja Rani-42. After this there are no songs on his name.

NIRUPA ROY she was a versatile actress. To prove my point, I repeat here what I had said about her few years back. Nirupa Roy (4-1-1931 to 13-10-2004) was an enigma of Hindi Cinema. An ordinary lower middle class housewife turned into an actress due to a need to survive. Funny thing was that it was her husband who had visited the studio to get a job as an actor and the studio selected his wife instead ! Nirupa Roy who acted in over 250 movies has been variously branded as a Goddess of Mythological films, a suffering wife of a poor farmer, a troubled housewife of social films, an acclaimed quintessential mother of Bollywood and even a Stunt film actress !

She has been a Heroine in 110 films, a mother in over 50 films, has been a Goddess in 50 Mythological films, a suffering wife in over 30 films and a Stunt girl in about 8 films. She sang Bhajans, romantic songs, Comedy songs, qawalis, sad songs and peasant folk songs on the screen.

She changed her Heros like “Badalate huye saathi”. She did 18 films with Trilok Kapoor ( 50-65), 12 films with Balraj Sahni ( 53-72), 16 films with P.Jairaj ( 53-78), and 21 films with Ashok Kumar ( 56-89). She was Amitabh’s mother in 12 films and stunt Girl in 8 films. She even wrote a popular film song for film Samrat Chandragupta-58 ( Mujhe dekh chaand sharmaye – Lata).

I had seen this film,not once but many times.it was full of trick scenes and It had become a cult film. Trilok Kapoor,who acted the part of lord Shiva was rumoured to have a real snake around his neck during the film shooting. Nirupa Roy who played the role of Uma,was quite scared of snakes and it became a problem. Finally,an artificial snake was used,when their joint shots were shot.

HAR HAR MAHADEV-1950 was produced and directed by Jayant Desai under the banner of Jayant Desai Production. With this one film alone Jayant Desai became a millionnaire in those days.

It was also the FIRST film where the pair of Trilok Kapoor and Nirupa Roy became a hit as Shankar-Parvati and they played this role in 6 subsequent films.
This is a story, when Tarakasur, the king of demons invades the land of gods, to avenge the insult meted out to his mother by Indra. Tarakasur wins the war and all Gods are kept in captivity-including the offender Indra.

Lord Vishnu and Bramhadev know, only Lord Shiva can defeat Tarakasur but he is in Tapascharya(Meditation). Kamdev is sent to lure Shiva from his meditation, but Shiva is so angry that, opening his Third Eye, he burns Kamdev. Now only Uma, the daughter of king Himalaya can save the world. Uma(Nirupa Roy) starts penance to propitiate Shiva(Trilok Kapoor).

Due to her earnest Bhakti and devotion, Shiva relents and breaks his Meditation. Shiva and Uma get Married and later lord shiva destroys Tarakasur, releasing all the Gods.

On this auspicious day of Mahashivratri, the marriage of Shiv-Parvati is solemnised in the midnight.

Film Munimji-55 has a very nice song depicting the marriage details. It is also posted in this blog, already.

Today (21 February 2020), on this auspicious day of Maha Shivratri – when Lord Shiv ji weds Devi Parvati, here is Shiv Stuti from film Har Har Mahadev-50. Jai Mahadev !

Today’s song is from a Mythological film of 1950, based on the early life of the popular God – Krishna. The film is Janmashtami-1950.

1950 was the last year of the decade of 1940s. This was a period when young Independent India was looking for its own identity. It was those times when the New World was beginning to influence the social structure of Indians. The joint family system was still in vogue. Almost every home had senior old people and they were the guiding lights for the younger generation. Men who were blooming into their youth, were a confused lot. They were caught between old customs and the call of the New World ways. Nehru’s socialism still attracted the majority and Democracy was sending its roots deeper into the grounds.

Ours was also a big joint family. With a sizeable number of senior old family members, religious atmosphere was maintained in the family. After the Prakash Pictures film “Ram Rajya”-43, the trend for the older people was to see every religious film that came calling. Having a guaranteed and assured audience, film makers became enthusiastic in producing Mythological films. The Holy Hindu books like Ramayan and Mahabharat and stories from 18 Puranas provided ample source material to make films. Religious films were also cheaper to make. The did not need any famous stars, famous directors or popular Music Directors of social films.

Like Stunt films, religious films too had fixed stars as actors, specialist Directors, Music Directors and Lyricists who were in demand for such films. Right from older actors like Prem Adeeb and Trilok Kapoor to newer actors like Bharat Bhushan and Manhar Desai, from Shobhana Samarth and Meena kumari to Nirupa Roy and Anita Guha and from Shankar Rao vyas and H C Bali to Avinash Vyas and S N Tripathi – a whole range of artistes were ready to carry the torch further. This automatically increased the number of Mythological and religious films made in the decade of 50’s (1951-1960) to an astounding figure of 124 films in the 10 year period. This worked out to at least 1 new film every month for 10 continuous years.

My liking and love for such films developed in this period. I was about 10 year old in 1950 and I had been chosen to act as a Male “Chaperone” to accompany the group of family oldies going to see such religious film. I liked the bright costumes and trick scenes in these films. This also imbibed in me to study our Vedas and other religious books to know more about the religion. This study and knowledge helped me a lot in in charting my career and family journey, in life.

According to scriptures, there were 10 Avatars or incarnations of God on this earth in various forms. Out of these, the characters of Ram and Krishna attained cult status. No wonder, most films were made in this Genre on stories about these two. Ram appeared on this earth first in Treta Yug, followed by Krishna in Dwapar Yug. In my opinion, Krishna is a more popular God than Ram. Ram depicted the model of a common Prince, without any super powers. He taught us righteousness, sticking to Justice and doing good all times. Ironically, in Ram’s total life, he suffered in more number of years than he ever enjoyed.

Krishna, Hero of many legends was with qualities like Love and Playfulness. He taught us how to be street smart. His philosophy was to use any means to achieve Goals. The common man has respect for Shri Ram, but he loves Krishna. On a cursory count, I found that more films are made on stories involving krishna than Ram. That is because, the common man feels that krishna teaches us how to live in today’s world and tackle bad people.

Film Janmashtami-50 depicts Krishna’s early life in Gokul and Mathura, till he goes to Dwaraka. The film is full of little Krishna’s antics. The role of young Krishna is done by Rajkumar khatri. He actually makes his Debut in films, with this movie. This actor Rajkumar is one of the ” Same Name Confusion” actors.

There were in all 5 Raj kumars in the industry at the same time. The first was Kannada Hero Dr. Rajkumar. However, he never worked in any Hindi film, so no confusion about him.The second was the famous Dialogue master Raaj kumar ‘Jaani’. Third was Rajkumar Gupta ( from Ranchi), who was the main character in popular film Jagriti-54. He never worked again in any film. Fourth was Raj(u) Kumar, a junior artist, who did minor roles- mostly uncredited-in films like Shri 420-55, Jagte Raho-56. Dilli ka Thug-58, Aaj aur kal-63, Ziddi-64 etc etc..The fifth was this Rajkumar, who mostly worked in Religious and Mythological films. His name was Rajkumar Khatri.

Rajkumar Khatri may have been born in or around 1940. He started as a child artiste in films like Janmashtami-50, Jai Mahakali-51 and Insaan-52. His first film as an adult was Shuk Rambha-53, in which he did the role of young Shukdev. He was a fine actor, not extraordinary, but there was something special about his screen presence. Apart from his boyish looks, he had an unspoken charm and emanated an inherent goodness. In his second film “Tulsidas”-54 he did the role of Shri Ram. He was hardly 15-16 year old then. This must be the youngest and most boyish looking Shri Ram ever seen on the screen !

Rajkumar khatri acted in 61 films, mostly Religious and Mythological films (47 to be precise). Not that he did not work in any social films, but such films were less. He was seen in films like Sautela Bhai-62, Aaj aur kal-63, Ustadon ke ustad-63, Ziddi-64, Nai umer ki nai fasal-65 etc etc. Due to his young looks, boyish face and innocent looks, he was generally given roles of younger brother. As Laxman, he acted in 7 films. His last film was probably Chintamanee Soordas-87.

In mid 80s, when films offers became scarce, he joined Prakash Mehra as an assistant. He used to live in Chembur. He was known as Chhota Rajkumar in the industry. He worked with Prakash mehra for a long time, as Assistant Director and as also his P.A. Reportedly, he died in September 2014. No further information on him was available.

Film Janmashtami-50 was made by Hindustan Chitra and it was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. Lyricist was Bharat Vyas and all the 9 songs of the film were composed by the talented but less known Music Director Shyam Babu Pathak. Shyam Babu Pathak is not a very well known name among Music Directors. He is one of those artistes, who had the talent and a will to do hard work, but Luck did not support him. This resulted in his remaining with unknown banners and B and C grade films. His career spanned from 1938 to 1965 – a period of 27 years in which he composed music for just 29 films and his 1 film remained unreleased.

Shyam Babu Pathak was born in 1908 at Gwalior. His music tuition started when he was just 7 years old. He studied in Madhav Sangeet Vidyalaya, under Rajabhaiyya Poonchhwale, Narayan Gupte and Bhatkhande etc. He became an excellent singer and was invited by several Royal houses all over India, for singing. Even V D Paluskar had blessed him. Strangely, though a good singer, he never sang a song in any film.

While touring all over India for Music Mehfils, he learnt many folk songs and tunes. This actually prompted him to join films as a composer. His first film was Royal Commander-1938 – a B grade Costume drama film made by Vishnu Cinetone. In his first film, for just 9 songs, he used as many as 6 different singers. Minimum songs had been his specialty. This was a novelty in the 30s, when the norm was of an average of 12 to 15 songs each film.

V M Vyas of Vishnu Cinetone, was impressed with him and he gave him many films. He got Rani saheba-40, Torpedo-40, Samsheerbaz-40, Malan-42 and Ghar sansar-42. He gave good songs sung by Kalyani, Sardar Akhtar and Kajjan. In Lajwanti-42, his songs were light and comedy type. By now, he had become a confirmed Stunt/action and B/C grade composer. Pyara watan-42,Double face-46 were such films. Double face was Indivar’s first film.

Black Market-47, Namak-47, krishna Sudama-47 and Kismatwali-47 were not much helpful. Takdirwale-48 with Ramprasad, Imtihan-49 and Ret Mahal-49 led him to film Jeet-49 with Anil Biswas. Actually,it seems Anil Biswas took over when Pathak left the film halfway.

After Janmashtami-50 and Achha ji-50, came Preet ka geet-50.Famous poet Harikrishna Premi wrote the songs, which were sung by Mukesh, Geeta and Johra. Next film Hamari Duniya-52 had good Lata songs. Meanwhile his film Parda remained unreleased. In the last phase of his career, came Sapna-52, Vanraj-52, Bombay Central-60 and finally, film Mehbooba-65 closed his career.

Shyam Babu Pathak died of heart attack in Bombay on 23-11-1980.

Today’s song is a lovely song, sung by Amirbai Karnataki. With this song, film Janmashtami-1950 makes its Debut here.

Song-Murliwaale Ghanshyam mujhe apni bana lo na (Janmaashtmi)(1950) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Shyam Babu Pathak

“Raaj Mukut”(1950) was directed by Nanubhai Vakil for Mohan Pictures, Bombay. This Costume drama movie had Nimmi, Veena, Jairaj, Ram Singh, Sapru, Mishra, Gulab, Ramesh sinha, Ramesh Thakur, Jankidas, Baby Tabassum etc in it.

This movie had eleven songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

The story of the movie, as goven by our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh is as follows:

Film Raaj Mukut-50 story was about a Prince who is more interested in doing social service for the poor and down trodden ( and a love affair with the Village Mukhiya’s daughter) than getting crowned legitimately. So he disappears and goes to a village, to do what he always wanted to do, but could not do so far.

He learns that his younger brother, crowned after the deliberate false rumour of the prince- was perpetrating tyranny on kingdom’s people and also arrested his own parents and jailed them. His blood boils and he enters the capital incognito, along with his girlfriend and others. There is a fighting and the younger brother is killed. The King and Queen are released. The prince becomes the King and his girlfriend becomes his Queen. Clap, Clap !

On this occasion, here is a rare song from “Raaj Mukut”(1950). HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shamshad Begam. On listning to the song, we can detect an uncredited male voice as well. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voice.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this light hearted song. Pt Govindram is the music director.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this fun song. The song appears to be a dance song or a roadside tamasha kind of a song to me.

Today 9 october 2019 happens to be the 4100th day for the blog. A century of a different kind for the blog.

This rare song was uploaded by our own Gajendra Khanna. What a delightful song it is ! Fit to be covered on the special occasion viz 4100th day of the blog.

“Dolti Naiyya”(1950) was directed by Mirza Musharraf for Shaan e Hind pictures, Bombay. This social movie had Nigar Sultana, Sham Dulaari, Amarnath, S Mazhar, Cuckkoo, Veena Kohli, Sabodhani, Pratima Malhotra, Laxmi, Sikandar, Sharief Mirza, Jleel A, Bhudo adwani, Mukri, Ameer Ali, Munshi Munaqqa, Mirza Musharraf etc in it.

“Dolti Naiyya”(1950) had ten songs in it that were penned by eight lyricists.

One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Dolti Naiyya”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Prakash B A is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Prasad.

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. It sounds like a club dance song to me.

ho koi dilbar banaana dekh bhaal ke
ho dekh bhaal ke

dil ko
ho dil ka jaadu balam
o bole meethhi sargam
ho bole meethhi sargam
gamapadha
pa ga ma
dha ni sa ri ni sa
ni dha pa ma dha ni pa

rakh de saath mein duniya ko dhaal ke
o o o
rakhde saath mein duniya ko dhaal ke
koi dilbar banaana dekh bhaal ke
ho dekh bhaal ke
zara dil ko lagaana sambhaal ke re ae
koi dilbar banaana banaana
ho koi dilbar banaana dekh bhaal ke
ho dekh bhaal ke
zara dil ko lagaana sambhaal ke re ae
koi dilbar banaana banaana
ho koi dilbar banaana dekh bhaal ke
