Song-Nirdhan ki dasha dekh(Amar Keertan)(1954) Singer-S D Batish, Lyrics-Wali Sahab, MD-S D Batish

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

maaya ko maaya miley ae ae ae ae
kar kar lambe haath
tulsi das gareeb ki ee ee ee ee
koi na poochhe baat

nirdhan ki dasha dekh
ho nirdhan ki dasha dekh
dhanwaanon ke bhagwan
nirdhan ki dasha dekh
ho nirdhan ki dasha dekh
jeena to raha jeena
jeena to raha jeena
nahin marna bhi aasaan
nirdhan ki dasha dekh
ho nirdhan ki dasha dekh

naiyya hai kinaare pe
kinaara nahin milta
kinaara nahin milta
nirdhan ko to aansoo bhi udhaara nahin milta
udhaara nahi milta
jab tera hi nirbal ko sahaara nahin milta
phir inpe daya kaise karega koi insaan
o dhanwaanon ke bhagwaan
o dhanwaanon ke bhagwaan aan
nirdhan ki dasha dekh
ho nirdhan ki dasha dekh

le dekh ye majboor chita ko hai taraste ae ae ae ae
haaye
nirdhan ke liye band hain marne ke bhi raste
nirdhan ke liye band hain marne ke bhi raste
jalti hai chita aa
jalti hai chita man mein ae ae ae
magar nain barasate ae ae
anjaan nahin phir bhi
banta hai tu anjaan
o dhanwaanon ke bhagwan
o dhanwaanon ke bhagwan
nirdhan ki dasha dekh

B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Satish Vyas, Amar, Pandey, Kanta Kumari, Malay Sarkar, Champaklala, Krishna Kumari, Mahipal(Guest artiste) etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs:-

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05 April 2020

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered.

Here is that final song from the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The song is picturised on Nirupa Roy playing a bride and getting married to the wrong groom. She would not point this out to her elders, rather she would make the most of this opportunity to sing a melancholic song. Singing a melancholic song,(when wronged by fate) was considered the ultimate act of Bhartiya Nari in Hindi movies of those days. Nirupa Roy was one of the leading Bhartiya Naaris of those days. subsequently she graduated to the role of the ultimate Hindi movie maa. 🙂

Amar is also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the nine songs of “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) get covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

This is the 1,100th post by Arunkumar Deshmukh.

Blog Day :

5083 Post No. : 17006

POST NO. 1100  !!!!

Today, I have mixed feelings in my mind. One way, I am happy that I am posting my 1,100th article here and on the other way, I am wondering how did I achieve this all? My first post came up here on 1-10-2012, though I had been posting my comments on the Blog’s other posts since the end of 2010. That time I had not even dreamt that I would ever write 1100 articles here or that I would remain connected with this Blog for almost 10 years continuously.
 
A habit of seeing old films and jotting down all the film details in my diary later that day turned into almost a career of writing articles on old films, its people, songs and anecdotes etc, in the last part of my life. Not many people start a second inning after retiring from a job of 35 years – that too absolutely unconnected to what one did in the last so many years !
 
That way my life has been taking unexpected turns at every stage, unconnected with what I did earlier. After coming in the merit list of 12th standard, I joined Medical College. Midway through the first year of M.B.B.S. I left it and joined Agriculture college. I won the All India Best Cadet N.C.C. Trophy at Delhi, as a Senior Under Officer. After graduating in Agriculture, I declined the Govt. Officer’s post in the department and became a Medical Representative in Glaxo, then All India No. 1 company. After 35 years in this field, I retired as General Manager-Marketing !
 
During this period I excelled in Astrology and won the ‘Jyotish Praveen’ title from Poona Mahasabha. I also earned a Brown Belt in Judo, besides acting in dramas etc. I traveled all over India, Pakistan. Nepal and Sri Lanka, U.K. and USA. After retirement I visited Europe, Switzerland and Australia with my wife.
 
With all this done, I turned to my original love – old films and music. I learnt how to use a Computer at the age of 71 years and  using old surviving diaries started writing articles on this Blog. I interviewed close relatives of a few old-time artistes and published them on the internet. I have written on Marathi films, Telugu films and even Kannada films on different blogs. There was a time when I wrote on 5 to 6 different Blogs at a time on different topics like history of films and film songs etc. But my first love has always been AtulSongADay. I honestly believe that I could do all this in this field due to the encouragement of Atul Ji. My heartfelt thanks to him. I must also mention the name of Sudhir ji, who has always supported and helped me. We have been very good friends and are in constant touch. Thanks, Sudhir ji.
In this Blog, I got good company from friends, many I have been able to meet also BUT I HAVE YET TO MEET ATUL JI. I have never even talked to him on phone anytime ! I wish that before I end all this game, we meet at least ONCE !
At this juncture, I did some self assessment. I have kept all the logbooks wherein I first hand-write my articles, before typing them. I have 27 such log books chronicling all my 1100 posts as well as interviews, lined up serially with dates of writing, date of posting on the Blog, serial number, film,song and year details of each post. I found out some statistics.
 
In these 1,100 articles, I have written on songs from films of 1930-40 (152), 1941-50 (417), 1951-60 (412), 1961-70 (46), 1971-80 (27), 1981-90 (8), 1991-2000 (5), 2000-2010(1) 2011-20 (3)  and NFS – 29 = Total 1,100 articles. This works out to 89% posts on films from 1932 to 1960 and only 11%  after 1961. So the fact remains that less than 100 posts are done for films of the post 1961 period, contrary to my estimate of about 200 such posts. This makes me ‘The Grand Old Man’ (पुराण पुरुष) in true sense.
 
Coming to today’s film, ‘Jhamela’ (1953) was a film made by Master Bhagwan after his colossal hit film ‘Albela’ of 1951. Prior to ‘Albela’, Bhagwan was making and directing only stunt films. The making of ‘Jhamela’ has an interesting history. After ‘Albela’, Bhagwan wanted to make a film called ‘Beta Laadla’ with Raj Kapoor and Nargis. He had talked to Raj and he had accepted it for Rs. 55,000 only. Bhagwan had kept RK’s cheque also ready. Meanwhile there was a party to celebrate the ‘Albela’ success, at Sai Prasad, CR’s house.
 
During the party, there was a discussion about Bhagwan’s next social film and PL Santoshi announced ‘Jhamela’ as his next film. Bhagwan was surprised and said,”What jhamela ? There is no story, nothing.” Santoshi said “The story can come later. First you make an announcement. The name is catchy and CR will give music”. Due to pressure from guests like S Mukherjee, CR, Santoshi and other guests, Bhagwan made the official announcement.
 
However, in spite of the success of ‘Albela’, Bhagwan’s luck started going down and down. Though he made many films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Bhala Admi’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’, ‘Hum Deewane’, ‘La Bela’ etc., he did not see same luck again. ‘Bhagam Bhag’, ‘Pyara Dushman’, and ‘Shola Jo Bhadke’ did somewhat better.
 
It was from the film ‘Albela’ that CR gave music to Bhagwan’s film in his real name. Prior to this, he gave music to his stunt films as ‘Annasaheb’.This type of use of pen names was followed by many MDs. GM Durrani gave music as Gunjan, SD Batish gave music as Nirmal Kumar. Snehal Bhatkar used several names like Vasudev, B Vasudev, VG Bhatkar and Snehal, before taking up another pen name Snehal Bhatkar for the rest of his career. Actually his name was Vasudeo and Snehal was his daughter’s name. These are well known, but today I will tell you 2 pen names FIRST time on the internet – on this Blog! Hardly anybody knows that Anil Biswas gave music to film ‘Begunah’ (1949) in the name of Haribhai. His co-MD in this film was Shyamu – none other than C Ramchandra. This information is given in the Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha on pages 67 and 190.
 
Although the team for ‘Jhamela’ was the same as Albela and they tried their best, still ‘Jhamela’ was not successful. Somebody had told Bhagwan that titles ending with ‘la‘ were lucky for him. Bhagwan tried this even, but he did not succeed in films like ‘Jhamela’, ‘Rangeela’, ‘Kar Bhala’, ‘Sachche Ka Bolbala’ and ‘La-Bela’. All this led to Bhagwan’s downfall to rock bottom. He had to sell his houses, cars etc and go back to the chawl where he had started from in his career. Bhagwan is a real case of ‘Rags to Riches to Rags‘.
 
Today’s song is a duet of Lata and Chitalkar.  I like duets of 2 pairs – Hemant Kumar – Lata, and Chitalkar – Lata, in that order. Even for my 1000th post on 18-8-2021  I had selected a CR song, but it was a chorus of Amirbai, Rajkumari, Durrani, Khan Mastana and CR. Today is 18-6-2022 – a gap of 10 months and 100 songs…an average of 10 posts every month for the last 10 months !
 
I once again thank all those who helped me in this fruitful journey. Enjoy the CR-Lata duet.

We can see that five songs were posted on this date ten years ago. One song was a non film song (NFS) and remaining four songs were from four different movies.

The movies represented were ‘Samrat-1954’, ‘Suhaag Sindoor-1961’, ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ and ‘Chhote Babu-1957’. Out of these four movies three movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Janam Janam Ke Phere(1957) is the only unYIPPEED movie from that day.

I had watched this movie during my childhood. I do not have not reecollection of the movie. But, the title of the movie and its most popular song, viz ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ is permanently ethed in the Read Only Memory (ROM) of my mind.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voice to the songs in this movie.

The movie had the following songs in it:-

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Janam janam ke phere …saanjh savere sabko ghere, inse na koyi bache re Rafi, chorus 16.02.2013

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The movie has already lasted for over thirteen years on the blog without being YIPPEED. 🙂

Today we present the eighth and penultimate song from this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Nirupa Roy lip-syncs on screen. Manhar Desai and B.M. Vyas are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics for the song were sent by Prakashchandra.

The video link of this song has three stanzas; however the audio link has only two stanzas.

Today’s song is from the film Firdaus-1953.

I have not seen this film and I do not know its story either. From what I read somewhere about this film, it seems to be a story of a newly married couple – Indra and Madhu, who get separated on their first night itself. The film has the background of India’s Partition.

1953 was a period just about 6 years after the Partition turmoil and those who suffered from it directly were still in the process of setting their lives in order. While people had not forgotten the pain of partition, no one wanted to even think again about that period. Therefore films made with such stories and background did not fare so well. While about 10 to 15 % of the population had actually suffered during Partition, for all others these were only stories, not knowing its devastation and the seriousness.

Most of the country had left the partition behind and looked forward to development and prosperity. Hindi film industry too had recovered from the shake up and was on the tracks once again.However, even in the films made now it reflected the changing society of India. Films were made on Mythology, Joint family benefits, Musical Comedies. It was now the turn of the South to replace the East in terms of winning the Hindi markets. However, compared to the Bangla artistes, not many southern artistes-especially the males- joined Hindi films. Mainly actresses came from south to Hindi films.

1953 established the practice of ” Guest Artistes” in Hindi films, starting from the film ‘ Aabshaar ‘ aka Waterfall, decisively. RK films and Raj Kapoor surged forward with films and Raj- Nargis paired with ‘ Aah ‘. Milestone and Hit films like Anarkali, Baaz, Boot Polish, Dil-E-Nadaan, Do Bigha Zameen, Fareb, Footpath, Jhanjhar, Jhansi ki Rani (First Indian Technicolour film), Ladki, Mayurpankh, Patita, Shikast, Teen Batti Char Raasta etc. entertained the audience, besides the Mythologicals, Historicals (distorticals ?), action and stunt films and family dramas.

Film Firdaus-53 was made by New premier Films and it was directed by Vasant Joglekar. It was produced by M.S.Ahluwalia. Music was composed by Roshan and Robin Chatterjee and the cast was Geeta Bali, Anup Kumar, Omprakash, Badriprashad, Vasant Thengdi, Randhir etc etc.

Everyone in this world has friends. Some are social friends, some are professional friends, few are Fb and WA friends. The best category is where the childhood friendship continues till old age and also a friendship which grows late in life but is a heartfelt one. One such friendship was famous in the film industry in the 50’s decade. Our film industry is full of ungrateful people. There is nothing like true friendship here. So called friends do not hesitate to cut the throat of others for selfish purposes. There are hundreds of such instances here. However for every rule there is an exception and there was ONE friendship which was used as an example here. That is the friendship of Vasant Joglekar and Ashok Kumar. They were true friends and their friendship ended only when Joglekar died.

Vasant Joglekar, actor-by compulsion and producer/Director-by choice was born on the Christmas day, 25th September 1914 at Nagpur. He started his filmi career as asstt. to Master Vinayak in 1942. In the struggling days he met Ashok Kumar and they became friends forever.

starting with Aap ki seva mein-47,in which Lata Mangeshkar sang her first Hindi film solo, Joglekar produced 10 films and directed 20 films ( 11 Hindi and 9 Marathi). In one of the Marathi films directed by this young man-Vasant Joglekar, sctress Sumati Gupte was acting in it. They fell in love and soon got married in 1943. Sumati became Sumati Gupte Joglekar. In due course, the couple had 3 daughters- Meera, Chanda and Madhushri.
In almost all his films Ashok Kumar was a fixture. There was a time when Ashok kumar was involved in 30 films at one time,still the 31st film was that of Joglekar. The only condition Dadamuni used to put was that Joglekar’s wife, actress/housewife Sumati Gupte Joglekar should provide him food Tiffin cooked by her own hands, at the shooting place ! . He was very fond of her cooking. No wonder, Sumati was a CKP by birth-a fish eater and the Bangali babu liked Fish dishes very much !

Joglekar’s Filmography as a Director in Hindi films – Aap ki sewa mein-47, Adalat-48, Nand Kishore-51, Jeet Kiski-52, Firdaus-53, Samaj-54, Karigar-58, Aanchal-60, Aaj aur kal-63, Ek Kali Muskayee-68 and last film Prarthana-69.

Vasant Joglekar tried to promote his daughter Meera as a Heroine in Hindi films, with the film Ek Kali Muskayee-68. However, she was not successful and the film was a flop.

Vasant Joglekar died on 13-1-1993.

Even in this film, Firdaus-53, Ashok kumar was present as a Guest artiste, though not in the cast. Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Written by D N Madhok, the music was by Robin Chatterjee. He was born on 8-1-1914, at Calcutta. His name is not too well known to Hindi film lovers, though he was very famous in Bengal, where he composed several NFS and film songs. For many years he assisted Anupam Ghatak,MD. He even sang in the chorus for New Theatre’s film Adhikar-1938. However he was not so successful in Hindi films.

His first Hindi film was Rajlakshmi-1945, wherein he gave the first opportunity to Talat Mahmood to sing a Hindi film song. Till then he was singing Bangla NFS and film songs with the name Tapan kumar. His next film was Tum aur main-1946 which had very good songs by kanan Devi. Then came Voh Dono-1947 and here Sandhya Mukherjee gave good songs. Robin Chatterjee gave music to 14 Hindi films,namely – Rajlakshmi-45, Tum aur main-46, Voh Dono-47, Sabyasachi-48,Ratnadeep-51, Pehli Shadi-53, Firdaus-53, Shobha-54, Majboori-54, Africa-54, Dhake ki malmal-56, Miss Toofan mail-58, Police Station-59 and Chimney ka Dhuvan-1973…this was a much delayed film. He also gave music to a Bhojpuri film- Saiya se kar le milanwa-1966.

Robin Chatterjee died on 2-4-1976 at Bombay at the age of just 62 years.

There is a strange and unusual name in the cast – Vasant Thengadi. Vasant Thengadi was born on 11-1-1910 at Nagpur. He was son of Congress leader Dhaniram Thengadi. Vasant had his education in Poona. He could not join the Army, because of his father’s political connections. He had to leave his Engineering college after father’s death. Being very handsome,tall and with good physique, he started working in Marathi dramas and films. He started his Hindi work with the film Dhuandhar-35. ( This was also the Debut film for Leela Chitnis and Meera Alexander). He started doing Villain roles and became popular and famous. Besides Marathi films, his Hindi films were Taramati-45, Phir bhi apna hai-46, Mera Ladka-38, Din Raat-45, Ten o clock-42 etc. Later he also worked as assistant director to Raja Nene.

His wife Kusum Thengdi and her sister Ranjana were also actresses. Ranjana was Dilip Kumar’s Heroine, in the film Milan-1946.

Today’s song is a rare song. You will like this song.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Sati Vaishalini-1959’.

‘Sati Vaishalini-1959’ was directed by Sadhu Singh for ‘Rati Chitra, Mumbai’. It was produced by P.N. Rangeen.

It had Trilok Kapoor, Sulochana, Lalita Pawar, Ratnamala, Krishnakumari, Niranjan Sharma, Nand Kishore, Tiwari, Shyam, Hari, Krishna Kumar, Roshanlal, and others. Heeralal, Sheela Kashmiri, Savita Chatterjee, Jyoti, Niranjan Tiwari, and Kamal Kapoor had made in guest appearances in this movie.

HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions in its foot note on this movie page that this movie was also known as ‘Janam Janam Ka Naata’. HFGK also mentions that the story of this movie was based on ‘Markandeya Puraan’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.11.1959.

‘Sati Vaishalini’ had eight songs written by Bharat Vyas. Music for this movie was composed by Premnath. (As mentioned by Atul ji while presenting the first song from this movie on the blog, this Premnath is different from the actor of the same name).

This movie had made its debut on the blog on 15.10.2016 with its song ‘jab tak khadaa himaalay hai… amar rahegi is jag mein’. think This was the only song from this movie that was available for posting those days. Now music enthusiasts have uploaded one more song from this movie which we will be listening to today.

Let us have a look at the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jab tak khadaa himaalay… amar rahegi is jag mein Mohd Rafi, chorus 15.10.2016
02 Aaja re aaja re… kaho ji kaun boley … Asha Bhonsle, Rafi
03 Tu chaahe to raat… hey gori maat sun… Asha Bhonsle, chorus
04 Arey vidhaata-2, mere bhaag mein toone kya likhaa Asha Bhonsle
05 Chaahe bhale chanda tale… ya naata janam janam ka Asha Bhonsle
06 Paaon mein kaante bichhe…pati mere shyam pati mere raam Asha Bhonsle
07 Ek sati sat ke dagar par chal padi. pi se milne ki chaah hai Manna Dey
08 Ghiri ghataayein ghanghor… rakshaa-2, kar bhagwaan Asha Bhonsle, chorus

Today’s song is ‘chaahe log kare apmaan … ye hai naata janam janam ka’. I guess that that today’s song is the ‘fifth’ song in chronological order in the movie.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics for today’s song are by Bharat Vyas and music is composed by Premnath.

Tune of this song is reminiscent of some other song, but I am not able to recall that song as of now.

Only audio of the song is available. I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and it’s songs.

Let us listen to the song now.


Song-Chaahe log karen apmaan (Sati Vaishalini)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Premnath (MD)

Lyrics

chaahe log karen apmaan
ho chaahe dushman bane jahaan
magar mere haathhon ne pakdaa haathh
jis albele balam ka
kabhi chhoote nahin pyaar
kabhi toote nahin saath
ye hai naataa janam janam ka
chaahe log karen apmaan

jinki chhabi mere ae
man ko suhaati ee
man ko suhaati
wo mere deepak
main unki baati ee ee
wo mere deepak
main unki baati
mere man mein jinka dhyaan
mere man mein jinka dhyaan
jagat mein wohi mere bhagwaan
ke jinke aage padaa sharmaaye
jhilmil chandaa poonam ka
kabhi chhoote nahin pyaar
kabhi toote nahin saath
ye hai naataa janam janam ka
chaahe log karen apmaan

mel hamaaraa jyun bijlee baadal
bijlee baadal
jaise ho ankhiyaan
ankhiyon mein kaajal
jaise ho ankhiyaan
ankhiyon mein kaajal
mere jhoome tan man praan
mere jhoome tan man praan
milaa maa tera amar vardaan
ke bujh naa paayega yamraaja se bhi
ye diyaa dharam ka
kabhi chhoote nahin pyaar
kabhi toote nahin saath
ye hai naataa janam janam ka
chaahe log karen apmaan
ho chaahe dushman bane jahaan
magar mere haathhon ne pakdaa

jis albele balam ka
kabhi chhoote nahin pyaar
kabhi toote nahin saath
ye hai naataa janam janam ka
ye hai naataa janam janam ka
ye hai naataa janam janam ka

Today’s song is from the film Simba-1951.

The film was made by Comedy Pictures. The director was Mohammed Hussain and the music was by D C Dutt. The cast of the film was Baburao, Krishnakumari, Shaikh, Bimla, Indira, habib and others. I have not seen this film but from the photos and the posters of this film it appears to be a kind of a distorted take on a Tarzan-like story.

Hindi films have been making attempts to bring films on this ever popular story worldwide, since the first decade of the Talkie films. Films were made like Zambo-The Ape man-1937 and Zambo ka Beta-1939. Tarzan has been masqueraded in Hindi as Zambo, Zimbo, Zingaro, Simba etc and also films were made using Tarzan name directly. As many as 21 films were made with the name Tarzan. True to Indian generosity and tradition, Tarzan has been gifted with a son, a daughter, a Mehbooba and a Jalpari ! He is combined with Gorilla, King Kong, Delialah, Hercules, Magic lamp and what not. I am sure the original Tarzan would have jumped with pleasure with so many companions ! Such films came mostly in the 60’s decade and the usual heroes were Azaad and Dara Singh, in the main role. Heroines were immaterial.

These C grade action and stunt films are truly 100 % entertainment. Only condition was that you must lock up your brain and forget any body part above your shoulders, before seeing these films. The greatest misuse of ” Cinematic Liberty” was to be found in those films. But honestly, the current New generation has really missed out on something out of this world !

Entertainment at best was provided by these C grade stunt and action films of the 40’s, 50’s and the 60’s. I know, because my childhood was nurtured on the full dose of such films. I was seeing films from the age of 9-10 years or so. That was around 1949-50. I was the officially appointed chaperone or the chies guide and guard of the older generation group when they went to see Mythological films in a theatre. Other times, I used to see action films and musical or social films etc. Old films of the 40’s were shown at reduced rates of 4 annas, 6 annas etc. in theatres screening them as ” Morning Shows” from 10 to 1 pm. I had no qualms seeing any film -be it Marathi, Hindi English, Telugu, Kannada or even Bangla. I was lucky to see films of the 40’s, because later on they simply disappeared !

Some people feel seeing and enjoying C grade films is below dignity and childish. It was neither, in my opinion. Sense and cause of enjoyment is as different to individuals as are the natures of all the people. You can’t find similarity exactly. It is like the definition of Beauty. Shakespeare had said ” Beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes “. To each his own. There are millions of people worldwide who like such films and that is why such films were made. Without demand would such films be made ?

Nowadays ofcourse, such films- C grade stunt and action films are not made. Due to advanced techniques and SFX science, one can show any unimaginable trick or scene in seconds, so who needs Fight masters and DareDevil action heroes like master Bhagwan, Baburao pehelwan, Kamran, Ranjan, Fearless Nadia and their ilk ? Furthermore, action on the screen is now diversified and branched into several stereotypes.

An American – Mr. Michel aka Mike Barnum runs 2 Blogs on the Internet, namely Pedro the Ape and cinemajadoo. Most people are totally unaware of such Blogs run by an American-Mike Barnum ji. On his Blog Mike has written on at least 100+ only C grade action and stunt films alone. He has made classification by different Generes also, like Jungle films, Mystery films, Murder films, Horror films etc etc. There are Photos, posters, cast details, film stories and short Bios of unknown C grade artistes. Once you go to his Blog, you get lost for a long time. It is a great work, involving a neglected Genre of Hindi films, which was once upon a time, a very popular film variety for certain audiences. I thank him profusely for this service. Thanks, Mike Barnum ji.

The decade of the 40s and the 50s was the period when stunt and Action films were made in plenty. There were specialised actors,producers, directors,composers and even specialised audiences too for such films. Stunt and Action films was a very sweeping name for a Genre which included several types of sub-categories. When I started studying these films, I found this kind soul – Mike Burnum -who identified and classified stunt/Action films made in India, into sub categories. For the information of our esteemed readers, the different types within the generalised Stunt/Action films are…(in descending order of number of films made….)

1. Fantasy and Arabian Nights-92 films
2. Horror – 67
3. Jungle Thrillers (Tarzan/Zimbo/Zambo/Zangbo/Zingara etc)
4. New Century Horror films ( Horror films made after 2000)
5. Science Fiction
6. Chillers
7. Spies and Detective
8. Super heroes/ Heroines
9. Murder and Mystery
10. Sword Fighting and
11. Naag Films. etc etc.

In today’s film cast you will find the name Baburao. Now this is not a complete name. There were several Baburaos in the film industry like Baburao Painter, Baburao Patel, Baburao Apte, Baburao Pendharkar, Baburao Pehelwan etc. But a regular fan of action films knew that in such films Baburao means Baburao Pehelwan.

Baburao Pehelwan, hailed from Kolhapur – famous for wrestlers due to royal patronage from King Shahu Maharaj. He started his career with the Wadias as an extra doing small roles and as a duplicate for Fearless Nadia. Master Bhagwan picked him up from there and made him a hero in his stunt pictures like, ‘Badla’ (1943), ‘Madadgaar’ (1947), ‘Laalach’ (1948), ‘Jalan’ (1948), ‘Bhedi Bungla’ (1949) etc. After the eclipse of stunt and action films, by the 60s, he joined fight master Azeem Khan’s team as a fighter and a duplicate. In the film ‘Howrah Bridge’ (1958) he was Ashok Kumar’s duplicate in the final scene, where he is to climb the Howrah Bridge.

Baburao Pehelwan operated in an era when there was a spate of actors calling themselves “pehelwan”. They were in great demand in stunt and action films. At one time there were actors like Baburao Pehelwan, Vasantrao Pehelwan, Sadiq Pehelwan, Nandram Pehelwan, Maane Pehelwan, Amir Khan Pehelwan. There was one more actor in the 30s named Marutirao Pehelwan. He was a handsome person. He was the hero in the first Gujarati talkie film, ‘Narsi Mehta’ (1932). He married his co-star of many films Tara, elder sister of dancer Sitara Devi. After retirement, Marutirao Pehelwan settled in Dhule in Maharashtra and opened a dairy. World famous dancer Gopi Krishna was their son.

Today’s song seems to be a dance number. It is sung by harish, Shaikh and chorus.. Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films,as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 8 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Simba-51, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade film comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt, fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main on screen singer in the iconic qawali, “Humen to loot liya milke husn walon ne” from the film Al Hilal-58. (It was the 5000th song on this Blog)

He directed 2 films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji Palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

Lyrics

Ding ding o gola
ding ding o gola

gori gori
pyaari pyaari
o sheena
gori gori
pyaaree pyaaree
o sheena

pahle loota thha tirchhi nazar ne
bal khaati hui is kamar ne
pahle loota thha tirchhi nazar ne
bal khaati hui is kamar ne
dil bhi junglee ada ne chheena
dil bhi junglee ada ne chheena
o shheena o sheena
o shheena o sheena
o gori pyaari pyaari
o sheena
gori gori
pyaaree pyaaree
o sheena

mere dil ki kothhariya hai chhoti
usmein phir aa basi hai ye moti
mere dil ki kothhariya hai chhoti
usmein phir aa basi hai ye moti
isne mushqil kiya mera jeena
isne mushqil kiya mera jeena
o shheena o sheena
o shheena o sheena
gori gori
pyaaree pyaaree
o sheena
gori gori
pyaaree pyaaree o sheena

aeji kismat kisi ne na paari
jab ladi aankh ??
aeji kismat kisi ne na paari
jab ladi aankh ??
aur miley khaad se khaana peena
aur miley khaad se khaana peena
o shheena o sheena
o shheena o sheena
