Blog Day :

3772 Post No. : 14749 Movie Count :

4033

Since the day making of talkie films started in India, till today, no one knows how many actors have worked in films. Few years back, one gentleman had made a list of 7000 actors up to year 2000 and it was posted on a site, which is now defunct. Ordinary film buffs do not know all the names. The experts, perhaps, may know more. Fact remains that there are only few actors known to all and few known to some.

Some time ago, one of my friends and I took a bet on who knows more names of actors. The time limit fixed was 24 hours and no books etc. were to be referred. Next day, we exchanged our lists. Can you believe, I could not cross even 50 ! My friend was better, he wrote 54 names !! When you have some time, try doing this yourself, at least once.

Same case is with music directors and singers. Though no definite number is available, it is generally presumed that there were 1200 to 1500 music directors. How many can you list ?

As far as singers are concerned, it is a different story. I classify film singers into 4 categories.

  1. Regular playback singers like Rafi, Geeta Dutt, Asha, Mukesh, Lata etc
  2. Those who acted and sang – early era actors till 1950
  3. Accidental singers – These are non singers, who sang few lines or a song in a film, sometimes – like Dilip Kumar, Amitabh, many comedians etc., and
  4. Occasional singers – This is the biggest list. Some of the names in this category are, Ira Nigam, Anima Dasgupta, Balwant Singh, Bharat Vyas, Gopal Patel, Hridaynath Mangeshkar, Malti Pande, Jikki, Narendra Chanchal, Pinakin Shah, Ram Marathe, Shobha Gurtu, Seeta Agarwal, Mrs. Vishnilal, Laxmi Kumthekar etc.

It includes those singers, who sang 6-8 songs and disappeared. It also includes those singers who are from other languages like Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Telugu, Tamil etc, but have sung few songs in Hindi too.

Today’s song is also sung by a singer who was a regular singer in Gujarati and Marathi films and occasional singer in Hindi films. The song is from film ‘Shri Ram Avatar’ (1950) and the singer is Leela Mehta. Leela is not new to our blog. Four of her songs are already discussed here.

Daughter of Kanhaiyalal Mehta and Indumati, Leela was born on 10-12-1935 at Borivali in Bombay. She was elder of the two sisters. Due to loss in business, her family shifted first to Ahmedabad and later to Baroda, where they settled. Leela studied in Marathi medium school – New Era Vidyalay in Baroda. Leela participated in all functions of the school and acted in dramas, much to the annoyance of their social circle. She developed interest in singing after listening to songs by Khursheed and Kananbala. She started learning music despite the resistance from home and others in their society.

VM Vyas, the famous director and a family friend knew about her interest and offered her the main role in film ‘Ranak Devi’ (1946). She was just 11 year old and did not suit the role, but she was given another role in it. Kokila Balsara aka Nirupa Roy too acted in it as a Debut film.

Due to her father’s death, the family shifted to Bombay and Leela took the responsibility of being the bread earner by acting and singing in dramas and radio plays. Meanwhile she learnt further music from Prof. Surendra Rao. She started acting and singing in Gujarati films. Ranjit Movietone offered her a big role in film ‘Gunsundari’ (1948), but since the role needed her to put on a sleeveless blouse, she refused that role. Finally, it went to Dulari. She, however sang songs in that film and they became quite popular in Gujarat.

Leela Mehta had grown up in Marathi atmosphere and also was educated in Marathi Medium, so her Marathi was very good. She was invited to work in Marathi dramas. She did roles in famous and popular Marathi dramas and also sang songs. From 1950 onwards, she started acting in Gujarati dramas. Meanwhile she used to sing in Hindi films occasionally. In early 50s, she made very successful foreign trips with her troupe, to perform Gujarati dramas and singing concerts.

Inspite of being successful and acting and singing in Marathi, Hindi and Gujarati films and dramas, her father did not see even one show of hers. This pained her till end. Leela stayed in a bungalow in Versova in Bombay. Once it was rumoured that there was a ghost in it. She immediately left that house and shifted to Dadar. Inadvertently, she forgot to inform the industry about her change of address, and this diminished her demand drastically.

Her mother died in 1972. In 1982, she toured USA. In 1985, the Marathi Natya Parishad honoured her with a cash award. Till 1992, she acted in Marathi and Gujarati TV serials. In all, Leela acted in 300 Gujarati/Marathi dramas, films and serials. Presently Leela is bedridden and unable to speak also.

Leela Mehta acted in only one Hindi film – ‘Shri Ram Avatar’ (1950). She sang 17 songs in 9 Hindi films, including 2 unreleased films. Her films are  ‘Nai Kahaani’ (1943) (2 songs), ‘Gaurav’ (1947) (1), ‘Namak’ (1947) (1), ‘Pehli Pehchan’ (1947) (2), ‘Gunsundari’ (1948) (2), ‘Satyawan Savitri’ (1948) (no information), ‘Chocolate’ (1950) (no information), ‘Shri Ram Avatar’ (1950) (4) and ‘Hanste Rehna’ (1950) (1). Her unreleased films were, Apradh (1948) (3) and ‘Bidhaata’ (1948) (1).

Film ‘Shri Ram Avtar’ was made under the banner of Praveen Leela Productions. It was directed by W Garcher – a name I have come across first time. He seems to have acted also in this film. The other cast was Shahu Modak, Ratnamala, Leela Mishra, Amarnath, Leela Mehta and others. Lyricist was Pt. Shivraj and the music was by Indravadan Bhatt.

Most names in the cast seem familiar except that of Ratnamala. How many of us really know anything about this actress. It is surprising that a very lovely and beautiful actress, who was heroine of about 20 films in the 40s and has about 300 films (131 Hindi films) to her credit, remains practically unknown. She was the heroine with Saraswati Cinetone, Prabhat Film Company, Sagar, Ranjit, Prakash Pictures etc. – all well known banners. She was in films for 50+ years and was a famous name in Marathi films of Dada Kondke.

Its a great pity that hardly any or no information about her is available in books, encyclopedias, wiki or on internet. When all sources of information come to a dead end, I turn to Harish Raghuwanshi ji of Surat and I am never disappointed. Here, I provide a short bio sketch of Ratnamala, based principally on the articles given by Harish ji. Thanks, Harish ji.

She was born as Kamal Bhivandkar on 22-6-1923 in Bombay. She was good looking and could sing well. From the age of 14 years, she went on the stage of several Ganesh Melas prevalent in those times. She earned 5-10 rupees per performance. In 1938, she was picked up by Dada Torne of Sarswati Cinetone, who cast her as a heroine in Marathi film ‘Bhagwa Zenda’. Seeing her performance, she was taken by Prabhat Film Company for the Marathi version of their film ‘Das Baje’ (1942). Torne had renamed her as Ratnamala.

Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures offered her a role in film ‘Bharat Milap’ (1942), when Kusum Deshpande, selected for the role of Bharat’s wife, fell ill. Seeing her performance, she was selected as a heroine for film ‘Station Master’ (1942). Here too, the original heroine Jyoti fell ill. Then came ‘Panghat’ (1943), ‘Police’ (1944), ‘Kavita’ (1944) etc. She acted in many mythological films also. Some of her well known films were, ‘Dholak’, ‘Maya Bazaar’, ‘Sasural’, ‘Bhabhi Ki Chudiyan’, ‘Faulad’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’, ‘Nishan’, ‘Bahu Beti’, ‘Mera Sayaa’, ‘Raaz’, ‘Saraswati Chandra’, ‘Brahmachari’, ‘Upahaar’, ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’, ‘Nastik’ etc.

She acted in 130 Hindi films and many more in Marathi films. Later she did side roles. She became famous as mother of Dada Kondke in 11 of his films. She was called ‘Aaye‘ (आये) in the Marathi films of Kondke.

Ratnamala was married to Raja Pandit, a Producer Director in Marathi films, when she was very young. As Ratnamala became successful and Raja became a failure, their marriage came on rocks. She had one son – Jaikumar, who had also acted in one film. Unfortunately, he died suddenly in an accident. Ratnamala lived in her own bungalow in Andheri, Bombay, along with her foster son – Ramesh. Ratnamala died of heart attack on 23rd January 1989.

The hero in this film was Shahu Modak. Shahu Modak was a regular actor in many religious films. He did Krishna’s role in over 30 films. He was born in a Christian family of Ahmednagar (Maharashtra), on 25-4-1918. He was trained in music by his Uncle Nivritinath Modak . He also got trained by Ustad Abdul Kareem Khan. There was a gym in his house and he became an expert in wrestling too. He was discovered by Bhal ji Pendharkar. Producer Nanasaheb Sarpotdar gave him his first break in films. He made his debut with a bilingual film from Prabhat – ‘Shyamsundar’ (1932), as a child artist. Shanta Apte also was a child artist debuting in this film. He also sang a song in this film.

In the next year itself he did a hero’s role in another bilingual – ‘Awara Shehzada’ (1933) (‘Ghatkecha Raja’ in Marathi). With this film, he entered the film History books for doing the first double role in a talkie film ever. He was a prince – Rajkumar and a pauper – Bholaram, in this film. The director of this film was Master Vithal, who himself was the first hero to do a double role in a silent film ‘Prisoner of Love’, in 1927.

Shahu became famous when he did the Havaldar Ganapat’s role in the landmark movie of Prabhat – ‘Aadmi’ (1939) (‘Maanus’ in Marathi). From 1932 to 1986 he acted in about 96 films. His last film too was a mythological – ‘Krishna Leela’ (1986), in which he did Krishna’s role for the last time, at the age of 68 years. He featured in many films of Prakash Pictures, which was a mythological film specialist studio. Shahu Modak initially sang his own songs. He must have sung about 54 songs in 18 films. From the film ‘Bhakta Pooran’ (1952), he started taking playback. But in 1971 he sang a song in film ‘Main Sunder Hoon’.

Shahu Modak passed away on 11-5-1993. There are two interesting things about Shahu Modak. One, he was a very accurate Astrologer. It is said that he had predicted his own date of death. Secondly, like Manhar Desai (Malcolm Alfredo Desai), he too was a Christian and both did roles of Hindu Gods in mythological films.

Let us now enjoy the Leela Mehta song from film ‘Shri Ram Avtar’. The movie makes its debut in the blog with this song.

“Anmol Ratan”(1950) was directed by M Sadiq for Jaimini Dewan Productions, Bombay. The movie had Meena (Shorey ?), Karan Dewan, Gope, Gulab, Madan Puri, Nirmala etc in it. The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the tenth song from “Anmol Ratan”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Nirmala devi. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of the song is available. Nirmala devi(mother of Govinda) appeared in the movie so it can be assumed that the song was picturised on her. Moreover, the lyrics suggest that it was a mujra song. So it is a mujra song picturised on Nirmala devi


Song-Koi kah do balamwa se ut nahin jaaye(Anmol Ratan)(1950) Singer-Nirmala devi, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

daaman mere mein daal na duniya ki daulaten aen
haan

jo inhen pa ke khush rahen
apni to maang ek hai
bolo to hum kahen
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye haaye
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
jit jaayike more tan aag lagaaye
jit jaayike haan jit jaayike
ho jit jaayike
more tan aag lagaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

meri bala se abr ho saawan ki jhadi ho o o
haan aan
shabnam ke motiyon mein kali jhoom rahi ho
meri nazar ke saamne nazaara wahi ho
naynon mein nayna daal piya muskaaye haaye
nayno mein nayna daal piya muskaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

Today’s song is the 5th song from the film Aahuti-50, to be discussed here. I have not seen this film, but from its second Title ” Anokhi Kurbani “, the movie seems to be about some kind of sacrifice. Whether it was for the country, family or just a Lover is not known. This was one of those films, made by a less known banner, directed by one whose name I read first time- Kulbhushan and the MD, who left no trace of him either of origin or the end- D.C.Dutt.

D C Dutt is its Music Director. His name is not known to many. All of us know that Lata Mangeshkar had to struggle very hard in her initial attempts of getting into Playback singing in Hindi films. In her early struggle, three Duttas helped her. The first was of course Datta Davjekar who gave her the first opportunity to sing a playback song for his film Aapki sewa mein-47. The second was K.Datta or Datta Korgaonkar, who, after his favourite singer Noorjehan left India, took Lata under his wings and gave her songs. The third Dutt was this-D C Dutt. No information is available about him whatsoever, except what is printed in HFGK and its duplication in Pankaj Raag’s book “Dhunon ki Yatra”. Thanks to this, we know that his debut was through film Sona Chandi-1946. Out of 12 songs of that film, only two were his and one of them was by Lata Mangeshkar. For rest, the composer was Tufail Faruqi.

This Lata song has a history. Film Sona Chandi was censored first on 19-7-46 and released. That time these 2 songs of D.C.Dutt were not there. In January 1948, when Gandhi ji’s death took place, many songs on Gandhi ji were recorded by many singers and composers. One of the most famous, popular and successful song was “Suno suno aye duniya walon, Bapuji ki amar kahani” sung by Mohd. Rafi in 4 parts and recorded by its composers Husnalal-Bhagatram. In this spate, D.C.Dutt also recorded a Gandhi ji song by Lata in 1948. Producers of film Sona Chandi got this and one more song ( by Saroj Borkar) included in the film and the film was re-censored on 9-4-48. Thus an early song of Lata was in a film, because of D.C.Dutt. Meanwhile the original Music Director of the film Sona Chandi-46 aka Bhai-Bhai, Tufail Faruqi ( brother in law of Ghulam Haider) had already migrated to Pakistan after the Partition.

D C Dutt later did some more films like, Sarai ke bahar-47, Dil ki Awaz-48, Anjana-48 ( he even acted in this film), Ram Darshan-50 ( he was one of the 6 Music Directors that the film had), Aahuti-50, Simba-51, Ranee-52 and lastly Sahil-59. Very surprisingly, after film Sona Chandi-46, Lata did not sing a single song in any of his films. After 48-49, Lata had become a very busy and ‘in demand’ singer and she would sing only for established composers ( we all know that she did not sing even in Madan Mohan’s debut film Aankhen-50, just because he was new).

The cast of the film, Aahuti-50 consists of Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjit Kumari ( who married actor Ramsingh and settled in UP), Sapru, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Struggling actress Shyama, Sudhir, Indubala and many others.

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. She was 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’-37. She also did another Punjabi film ‘Chambai ki Dali’-41 in Calcutta. Meanwhile,she was invited by Shorey pictures to Lahore to act in their Punjabi film ‘Mangti ‘-42. This film ran for 65 weeks giving her name and fame.

Barkat Nizami was the uncle of actress Mumtaz Shanti. It was through the efforts of Barkat Nizami that she was introduced to the Hindi film screen. This person had a knack for recruiting girls to cinema. First he brought in Mumtaz Shanti and then his own wife, Geeta Nizami. According to him this was a business, more than a marriage. He used to take 50% of earnings from Mumtaz Shanti, but after she married Wali Saheb, this stopped.

Rai Bahadur Chunilal Of Bombay Talkies offered her a role in their film Basant-42. She did Basant and Kismet-43. Both the films were hits and famous all over India. Mumtaz was good looking,tall and lithe,so looked attractive. After Kismet she became a freelancer and worked with many different studios, in Badalti Duniya and Sawal-43,Bharthari, Lady Doctor and Pagli Duniya-44,Chand chakori-45,Shravan Kumar, Dharati, Magadhraj and Pujari-46, Dekhojee and Doosri Shaadi-47,Padmini, Heer Ranjha and Ghar ki izzat-48,Putali, Biwi and Aahuti-50. Her last film in India was Zamane ki Hawa-52. 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 had 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. Manto has written some interesting incidents about her in his sketch of Ashok Kumar. According to him after marriage she used to come for shootings wearing ‘Burqa’. And Wali Saheb told the Producer/Director that no one should touch her. She was the second wife of Wali Saheb and she didn’t have any issue. Wali Saheb, however adopted a son for her ( who was a child of Wali Saheb’s brother, another famous lyricist, Nazim Panipati). This adopted son, Sikander Bin Wali lives in Washington D.C. Wali Saheb’s elder son from his first marriage, Zafar was Assistant Director of film Ghunghat-1962. They migrated to Pakistan after 1953. She retired from films and remained a housewife only. Walisaheb did 3-4 films,without much success. He died in 1977. Mumtaz Shanti also died in 93/94,unsung and unknown in Pakistan. ( information culled from articles provided by shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, Filmdom-46, Khwaja Irfan Anwar and my notes).

Many actors, Directors and few actresses came from Kashmir, to join Hindi films. In olden times, some prominent names were Jeevan, Chandra Mohan and Sapru, besides many others. Actresses were Shyama Zutshi and Yashodhara Katju in early times. Here is some information about D.K.Sapru, based on an edited article from Chinar Shade.com, and from shri M.N.Sardana ji with thanks…

“ Where from have you come ? You look like an European . Please sit . I need to talk to you .”

This is what V Shantaram had told the young boy in 1944 who had come all the way from Jalandhar to Prabhat Studios Poona . Shantaram , Babu Rao Pai and S. Fatehlal were the partners of Prabhat Studios present at that point of time.

Looking at his face and after the usual introduction ,V Shantaram signed the blue eyed handsome Daya kishen Sapru for a role in his next movie RAM SHASTRI.. The character of a Peshwa played by him was well noticed and the movie turned out a big hit.. He was signed as lead hero by the Company on a monthly salary of Rs3000/= highest ever paid to any hero during those days . It was a hefty sum that enabled him to live a princely life during those days .It was somewhere around 1945-46.

Films started pouring in later .He acted in Romeo and Juliet ( opposite Nargis . Nargis’s Mother Jaddan Bai was all praise for Sapru. The film was produced by Nargis’s brother Akhtar Hussain . ) ,Jhansi Ki Rani ,Kalapaani , Hum Hindustaani , Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam, Mujhe Jeene Do , Leader and Shaheed . Who does not remember his role as Majhale Sarkar ( Chaudhary ) in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. Again as Zamindaar in Mujhe Jeene Do , he became quite popular. We saw him in some wonderful roles in Naya Daur , Prem Pujari ,Jewel Thief , Krodhi , Kudrat ,Dharm Veer, Dream Girl, Zanjeer , Pakeezah and many more such films .It was a period when story writers would create a character for him in the story or script. He was seen either as a Zamindaar or a Police commissioner or a Judge in most of his later films .

In Total, he must have acted in more than 350 films and out of which he played lead role in more than 50 films. He also played lead roles in some Gujarati and Punjabi films.

Saprus are Sarswat Brahmins from Kashmir known as kashmiri Pandits who belong to DIPAT SAMAN AUPAMANYAVA Gotra or the lineage of an Aryan Rishi .This clan of kashmiri Pandits actually belongs to village SAPREIN in present day Kulgam district of kashmir and could be safely called as aboriginal kashmiris . some other prominent Saprus are Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru , Jagdish Narayan Sapru ( Prominent Businessman of the country ) Sahaj Ram Sapru Revenue collector during the rule of Afghan Governor Azim Khan ( 1809-1819 ) and Dr Allama Iqbal Urdu poet and Islamic scholar ( He too belonged to a Sapru family from kulgam that had converted to Islam )

Daya kishen Sapru belonged to a well off family from Kashmir and his father was employed in Maharaja’s Treasury . That made the family to move to Jammu and Lahore during winters. Daya Krishen was born at Jammu and had his early education at Jammu and Lahore .Fluent in Punjabi , he was also proficient in Hindi , Urdu and English .From his childhood days , he would love music and singing . He could easily play on his Harmonium.

Before moving to PUNE , D K as he was known amongst his numerous friends lived at Jalandhar cantt for some time where he took up the job of a contractor .He had four brothers and two sisters and D K happened to be the fourth child in this joint family.

D K Sapru met Marathi actress and IPTA activist Hemvati and they fell in love. They married in 1948 .Hemvati was a noted Marathi actress who also worked at PRITHVI Theatres. She acted in SANGRAM with Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant in lead roles. She had also worked with Dev Anand in MOHAN ,Mubarak and Renuka in Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani and Raj Kapoor in Jail Yatra . A play of Prithvi Theatres, named Deewar had Hemvati and Raj kapoor in lead roles and the play became quite popular on stage during those days.

After marriage , Hemvati played the role of a caring wife and an affectionate mother in her family. After marriage,She possibly acted only in one movie PATIT PAAVAN a home production of sapru family. Hemavati died on 10-4-2005.

Sapru children are also in films. To quote their elder daughter REEMA is a well known script writer while second daughter PREETI is a successful Punjabi actress while their son Tej is a noted film and TV actor. The brother and sisters are closely attached to each other. They too live by the family values that they inherited from their father .

D K Sapru also acquired good and working knowledge of Homeopathy and was seen reading Homeopathic books quite often during his spare time. He then started practicing this school of medicine and would treat everybody without any charge often Buying medicines and distributing them free.

Sapru also committed a folly of producing films . One can say that he was misguided by some selfish friends .Though he had learnt some lessons from his first home production Patit paavan , a movie that earned him a few thousands only yet he took up another production project ” Bahadur Shah Zaffar”’ and brought in a large star cast that included Sudesh Kumar , Chand Usmani ,Shyama , Rehman ,Jeevan, Ulhaas ( M N kaul ) and Nirupa Roy .He pooled in all his resources and raised loans for the project mortgaging his spacious new Bunglow .The movie did not sell on Box office. That landed the family in great trouble. The house had to be sold to repay debts .

Sapru turned diabetic during his later life. Inspite of his failing health he decided to make a last attempt to produce another film JEEVAN CHALNE KAA NAAM. By Now Reema was a trained screen play / script writer . She wrote the script and the family signed in Sanjeev Kumar , Rekha , Shashi Kapoor . DK fell ill suddenly and had to be hospitalized for about an year. The project was abandoned. D K was also operated upon for a malignant growth in his shoulder and finaly died of a heart attack at a young age of 63 years in 1979. His favourite child Reema was already married at that time . And by then he had also turned a grandfather.

It was big blow to the judiciary when Mr Daya Kishen Sapru departed for heavenly abode. There were other esteemed judges, who graced the self-righteous chair of the temple of justice but could not create a niche for them like Mr Sapru and Mr Murad, in Hindi films . It is to their credit ,that they both not only enhanced the prestige of judiciary ,but they were also apt in enacting all types of characters.

Mr D K Sapru,scion of an influential Pandit family of J & K and one of the most handsome actor of his time ,like other young men joined the film line to become hero. Fair complexioned with expressive light eyes like his senior actor & fellow Kashmiri Pandit Chandra Mohan ,soon he became a known actor. His cousin Mr Jeevan was already an established actor in Hindi Films .

In 1948, Jaddan Bai produced a movie which was based upon the tragic tale of Romeo And Juliet, written by William Shakespeare,in which the female leading role was played by her daughter Nargis, opposite Sapru Saab. In the same year he married Hemavati ,a Marathi actress ,who mostly had worked on stage of IPTA and Prithvi Theatres and also in few movies. Interestingly ,she was leading lady in 1947 movie Mohan ,in which the struggling actor Dev Anand was her hero. Hemvati & Sapru ,looked as if they were made for each other ,as both were good looking ,fair coloured and had similar light eyes.

There was a big advertisement in Film India and other papers ,when K Asif announced Mughal E Azam ,for which he took Sapru and Nargis as jilted lovers with Chandra Mohan in the title role of the Great Mughal. The movie could not progress , as firstly the financier migrated to Pakistan and in 49 , Chandra Mohan passed away . Mr Sapru became a full time character actor and his versatility came to the forefront , when he portrayed dissimilar character in different movies . Sapru Saab was man for all seasons ,and could portray saintly person/villain/cop/ foreigner/ villager / sophisticated person /King/ Sultan .all type of characters with ease.

He looked so charming person as rich Jeweller ,father of Tanuja in Jewel Thief and in Tere Mere Sapne, he was a humble villager. In Zanzeer ,he was a mafia lord and in Majboor (1964) ,he was prosecuting lawyer. He appeared in numerous mythological movies and in fact made Patit Pawan in 1955 ,which did average business.

As an actor, he was doing well, therefore one fails to appreciate the reasons as to why he thought of producing movies. He made Bahadur Shah Zafar ,in which he himself essayed the role of unfortunate last Mughal. He took Chand Usmani, Shyama, Jeevan, Sudesh Kumar , Ullhas etc in the movie. Unaware of the lack of honesty of his production team , Mr Sapru kept faith on them and could not monitor the expenses and the movie was over budgeted .He spend all his money and even mortgaged his unmoveable assets to make the movie spectacular and completed the movie. But sadly the movie could not be released and remained in cans . It was a big blow for him.

Today’s song is sung by Uma Devi and Shanti Varma, as per HFGK. However, as per one comment on You Tube by a known collector, she was Shanti Sharma, and not Varma.’Swaron ki Yatra’, by Anil Bhargav also credits this song to Shanti Sharma. I have not found any singer Shanti Varma, but Shanti Sharma’s name as a singer is found in films Raees-48, Kinara, Shaukeen, Dhoom Dham, Rimzim and Veer Ghatotkach-all of 49, and Azmaish-52 in HFGK.

With this song, the blog now has 3000 songs from the decade of 1940s (viz from years between 1941 to 1950).

Blog Day : 3730 Post No. : 14673

The palat side of today’s song, was posted – goodness, four years ago.  And Sandhya ji is now completing 87 years today, and stepping into her 88th. Abundant greetings to Sandhya Mukherji – we wish for her good health and comfort, and that we may get many more such opportunities to greet her.

Four years back, I had posted the lovely, lively “O Re Jeene Waale, Hans Le Gaa Le Dhoom Mach Le” – one of her very few non film songs recorded in Hindi. From the same gramophone record (GE 24065 – Columbia), I present today, the song from the other side. A more poignant song, a sad song of separation – this song is no less iconic. As I tried to search for more, I drew a blank (so far).  It seems that this gramophone record and these two songs may well be the only two non-film Hindi songs that have been recorded by Sandhya ji.

For a brief bio sketch of this artist, I request readers to go back to the song referred above, and view that article.

She worked at New Theatres from 1948 to 1950, and sang under the music direction of RC Boral. She came to Bombay in 1950 – ‘Sazaa’ (1951) was her debut in the Bombay industry, after which she recorded songs for another eight films. And then, in 1956 she decided to return to Calcutta, after having recorded “Maine Jo Li Angdaai. . .” under the music direction of Salil Da, for the film ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956). After that, she stayed only in Calcutta, and recorded a few songs for a handful of Hindi films.

Today’s song is penned by Prem Dhawan and is set to music by Kanu Ghosh. The melancholia of this song is such a surprising antipode of the song “O Re Jeene Waale. . .”. Listen and enjoy.

Once again, greetings to Sandya ji, and best wishes for a healthy and comfortable years ahead.


Song – Tum Gaye Lut Gaya Pyaar Ka Ye Jahaan (Sandhya Mukherji NFS)(1950) Singer – Sandhya Mukherji, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Kanu Ghosh

Lyrics

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

meri aankhon ki tum
roshni le gaye
meri aankhon ki tum
roshni le gaye
mere hothon ki tum
sab hansi le gaye
ab meri zindagi
zindagi hai kahaan

wo bahaaren gayin
wo nazaare gaye
wo bahaaren gayin
wo nazaare gaye
meri raaton se wo
chaand taare gaye
na meri hai zameen
na mera aasmaan

tum gaye
lut gaya
pyaar ka
ye jahaan
na rahi
wo khushi
na rahe
armaan

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां
ना रही
वो खुशी

अरमां

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां

मेरी आँखों की तुम
रोशनी ले गए
मेरी आँखों की तुम
रोशनी ले गए
मेरे होठों की तुम
सब हंसी ले गए
अब मेरी ज़िंदगी
ज़िंदगी है कहाँ

वो बहारें गईं
वो नज़ारे गए
वो बहारें गईं
वो नज़ारे गए
मेरी रातों से वो
चाँद तारे गए
ना मेरी है ज़मीं
ना मेरा आसमां

तुम गए
लुट गया
प्यार का
ये जहां
ना रही
वो खुशी
ना रहे
अरमां

“Raaj Raani”(1950) was directed by Satish Nigam for Jagat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Meena Shorey, Rehman, Sohan, Usha Kiran, Cuckkoo, Vyas, Mehta, Shashikala etc in it.

This “social” movie had seven rare songs in it that included six female solos-two each by Shamshad Begam, Surinder Kaur and Lata, whereas there was one duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Rafi.

Two Surinder Kaur solo songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is a Lata solo from the movie. The song is penned by D N Madhok. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this “bhanwra-kali” genre of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Bhanwra beimaan gaaye mohabbat ke gaane (Raaj Raani)(1950) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

bhawra beimaan
bhanwra beimaan
gaaye muhabbat ke gaane

bhawra beimaan

bana ras ka lobhi
udhar muskuraata aa aa
bana ras ka lobhi
udhar muskuraata
taraane madhur madbhare gungunaata
bola lipat ras dai ja
chipat ras dei ja
fiza mein bade ashq humne bahaaye
bhanwra beimaan
gaaye muhabbat ke gaane
bade mastaane suhaane lubhaane
kali phooli na samaaye
boli lipat ras lei ja
chipat ras lai ja
mere baag mein koi shikwe na gaaye

ye sun kar bekali mein
wo kali bhanwre se yoon boli
mera tum ho na ho
o ras ke lobhi
main teri ho li
arre aa jaao

lipat ras lei ja
chipat ras lai ja
bahaaron ki rut jaa ke aaye na aaye
bhanwra beimaan
gaaye mohabbat ke gaane
bade mastaane suhaane lubhaane
kali phooli na samaaye
boli lipat ras lei ja
chipat ras lai ja
mere baag mein koi shikwe na gaaye

“Raaj Raani”(1950) was directed by Satish Nigam for Jagat Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Meena Shorey, Rehman, Sohan, Usha Kiran, Cuckkoo, Vyas, Mehta, Shashikala etc in it.

This by now forgotten “social” movie had seven rare songs in it that included six female solos-two each by Shamshad Begam, Surinder Kaur and Lata, whereas there was one duet sung by Shamshad Begam and Rafi.

Dharti hamaari pe tu nit nit jhaanke chanda(Raaj Raani)(1950) Singer-Surinder Kaur, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

dharti hamaari pe tu nit nit jhaanke chanda
paapi ki nagri basa(?)
jo sukh leke hamen dukh deke gaya aa aa

jisko dil de kar hamne jaan ko hai rog lagaaya
pyaar ke badle mein jisne hamko hai bada sataaya
parmeshwar mere
usey bhi rula
jo sukh le ke hamen dukh deke gaya aa aa
dharti hamaari pe tu nit nit jhaanke chanda
paapi ki nagri basa(?)
jo sukh leke hamen dukh deke gaya aa aa

dil ke armaan mere
ro ro ke so gaye
palkon mein tadap tadap kar aansu chup ho gaye
aaye na aaye ab saanwariya
jo sukh le ke hamen dukh deke gaya aa aa
dharti hamaari pe tu nit nit jhaanke chanda
paapi ki nagri bata
jo sukh le ke hamen dukh deke gaya aa aa aa
