Today’s song is from an ” interesting” film – Pamposh-1953.

I have always been stating that History is never permanent. Whenever new evidence comes, the history changes to that effect. Same is the case with Film History. It keeps on changing, whenever honest workers dig up new evidence with credible proofs. This is normal and Film History lovers have accepted it too. Occasionally – very occasionally or almost rarely, some such evidence comes out which no one had ever dreamt about and when no one had ever doubted the existing accepted matters as facts.

From the early 80’s or to be precise, when Harmandir Singh Hamraz ji published his HFGK for the 50’s decade, as the first in his series of many decades subsequently, we all had known that the Music Director of film Pamposh-1953 was Manoharlal Khanna – father of MD Usha Khanna, the second prolific woman composer for hindi films. (the first prolific woman MD was Saraswati Devi). It was mentioned in the HFGK and Usha Khanna too had repeatedly told so in her articles and interviews.

During the last few years, I have met close relatives of many yesteryear artistes and interviewed them. One thing I noticed was that most relatives, those close ones, did not know or were not sure of certain matters. Sometimes they knowingly told wrong things to enhance the image of that artiste. So I learnt to counter check facts before including them in the interview material.

Usha Khanna’s case also seems to be like this. I carefully listened to her interview about her father, posted on RMIM recently and I found that she made claims which were not wholly correct about her father. One of the claims she always made was that it was she who actually had given music to film pamposh, but her father’s name was credited. Actually neither Usha Khanna (who was barely 12 year old in 1953)nor her father M.L.Khanna had given music to film Pamposh-53. It is noteworthy to note that HFGK has a footnote for this film stating that ” The film booklet mentions MD’s name as Mohan Lal Aima and Cecil Mendoza”. Enthusiastic senior RMIM members worked furiously on this issue and dug up several proofs to arrive at a conclusion that MOHAN LAL AIMA was actually the Music Director of film Pamposh-53.

Film Pamposh was screened at the Cannes Film Festival, France on 9-4-1954 with the French title “FLEUR DE LOTUS” (Lotus of Kashmir or कश्मीरी कमल ). In that also the MD’s name was given as Mohan Lal Aima. This film was made in English, French, Spanish,Italian, German, Hindi, Bengali and Tamil and had won high praise in Cannes, as per the French newspaper “LE MONDE”. This information is from the book ” The world of Ezra Mir” by N.J.Kamath, pub.2005.

I am not only impressed but also amazed to see how the active RMIM members coordinate while working on a research project. Some of the senior members, like Magicians, produce Links, Photographs, Book extracts, Paper cuttings etc. to add to the information. I am not taking any names, because

i) the list will be too long and

ii) they all are equally knowledgeable and hard workers.

Imagine doing their regular jobs and yet contributing enthusiastically on the forum which is simply superhuman ! My Hats Off to RMIM !. Over the years, they have contributed substantially to Hindi film history. I Hope some members produce a book on RMIM. One small book already published is not enough.

Now the important point would be to know who this M L Aima is. Here is his information,collected from various sources made available on RMIM forum.

Mohan Lal Aima was born in a family of ‘Datatreya Kauls’ of Fateh Kadal, Srinagar, on 21-7-1922 . This area was across the Jhelum river and close to Syed Ali Akbar locality. His father , Pandit Ved Lal Aima had earned respect and goodwill in the society even with his modest means and simple living. The family got Aima nickname as some elder from this clan was a gifted osteopath (Waatangor) who cured many people with fractures and dislocations.

After completing his M.A. LLB, and a Diploma in Statistics, he was to join Bar and establish himself as an advocate, but contrary to that, he gave a surprise/shock to his family and the conservative Kashmiri Pandit society ( at that point of time) when he decided to opt for music and singing as his career. During those days, it was something like a rebellious act for his middle-class family. And he earned the nickname “Mohan Chhakri”.

He also led a group of boys that sang this song when Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru and Sheikh Mohd Abdullah addressed a huge gathering at Palladium cinema Lal chowk Srinagar in November 1947 . This song was written by Maulana Masoodi, a close associate of Sheikh Mohd Abdullah during those days and it used to be played as an anthem song in official functions during 1948 and 1949.

He scored music for first full-length Kashmiri feature film MAENZRAAT. He scored music for Nadim sahib’s opera ‘Bombur Ta Yemberzal’ that was widely appreciated and shown to Russian dignitaries Nikita Khruschev and Nikolai Bulganin. during their visit to Kashmir. It was performed in early December, 1955 at Nedou’s Hotel , Srinagar by a galaxy of Kashmiri artists and singers. Marshal Bulganin was reportedly seen tapping his foot when the artists sang the Bomburo Bomburo. He also scored music for the Kashmiri version of the movie “Shayar e Kashmir’ Mehjoor”.

His tune for Nadim Sahib’s composition “Bomburo Bumburo Shaam Rang Bomburo” became popular in the entire length and breadth of the country after it was used in a Bollywood movie.

He scored music for Ezra Mir’s 1953 film “Lotus of Kashmir(Pamposh)”.It was produced by Ambalal J. Patel. He also scored music for “ROKO” a short telefilm produced for Door Darshan by M Y Bhat . It was telecast from four metros of the country sometime in1975 or 1976. He further gave music to the film “Kashmira”, produced by Childrens Film Society.

He was also commissioned by Muzaffar Ali as a music consultant cum co-composer for his aborted high profile film Zooni ( Story based on the life of Habba Khatoon ) . The music of the international version was to be done by Oscar winner Japanese composer, Riyuchi Sakamoto, while music for all the songs in Kashmiri was to be scored by Mohan Lal Aima. And the renowned fashion designer, Mary McFadden of New York had been engaged to design the costumes of the film.Muzaffar Ali had to put his project on hold due to widespread militancy in Kashmir. The shooting of this high profile movie with Dimple Kapadia and Vinod Khanna in lead roles had been started during the summer of 1989.

He was the Head of the Music section in Radio Kashmir, Srinagar from 1949 to 1964. Aima was sent as Director General, on deputation to Kabul for Radio Afghanistan. He became extremely popular there. Later he was transferred to New Delhi and Bombay also. During 1979, he lived in Seven Bunglows area of Andheri West in Bombay. He was always eager to help the visiting Kashmiri artistes and arranged for their staying free at Bombay.

Aima could play several traditional Kashmiri Musical instruments. In Bombay, he prepared a CD of kashmiri Devotional geets. It was named ” Man Pamposh”. It became very popular. In 1990, he was bed ridden with Cancer and he died in Bombay.

Many eminent music experts and his friends like Padmashree Pran Kishore Kaul, Bihari Kak – actor, Muzaffar Ali, Padmashri Moti Lal Khemu and others have written about him.

His brother Omkarnath Aima was an actor. He was the hero of the First Kashmiri film “Maenz Raat”. Onkar’s son Alok Aima was also an actor and worked in many Hindi films like “Jaane bhi do yaaron “. M.L Aima’s son Satish Kaul was also an actor. (Based mainly on an article by Shri Autar Mota, on his Blog The Chinar Shade, with thanks and RMIM sources.)

This film was directed by Ezra Mir. Some of the Senior readers, in the bracket of 55 to 75 years of age would recollect the Indian Documentaries made by Ezra Mir, shown before almost every film in the theatres. Indian News Reel and these documentaries on various subjects were actually used as a facility to enter the theatre late and still catch the whole movie from the beginning. These documentaries were made mostly by Ezra Mir and the voice over used to be that of Pratap Sharma usually. ( his younger brother Mahesh Sharma was my good friend in those days).

Ezra Mir was one of the rare persons who worked in the famous Hollywood studios for a considerable time, before he came to India and got involved in making films here. He was also a rare person who, despite being in great demand in the commercial cinema, chose to join a Government organisation and did monumental significant work for the future generations. For a long time, I was thinking him to be a Muslim man, but at a much later date, I came to know that he was a Jew person.

Ezra Mir ( real name Edwyn Meyers) was born on 26-10-1902 at Calcutta. After completing his education, he joined Madon Theatres in 1921. In 1923, he left for Europe and America to work in the film industry. After doing bit roles in Rudolph Valentino’s films in Long Island, New York and working for First National Biograph Studios, he joined the Universal studios as a ” Film Cutter” and later as a Scenario writer. By his diligent and hard work he became the chief of story Department in United Artistes. In 1929, he wrote and directed a film ‘ Simbolisque ‘, which created a sensation in the film circle there.

With the advent of the Talkie, he came back to India , joined Imperial Film co. and made film Noorjehan-31 in Hindi and English. In 32-33, he joined Sagar movietone and directed Zarina-32, Pagal premee-33 and Farzand e Hind-34. Then Ezra went to Calcutta. After doing some films he came back and made documentaries on second world war. In 1940, he was appointed by the Govt. on the Film Advisory Board. In 1942, when V.Shantaram left as its head, he became the head. From 1942 to 1946, he made 170 documentaries.

In 1951 he joined the Films Division and in 1956, became its President. In his tenure here, he made 400 documentaries. In 1970 he got ‘ Padma Shri ‘. Ezra Mir died on 7-3-1993. His Filmography is Noorjehan-31, Zarine-32, Pagal premi-33, Farzand e Hind-34, Mera Pyara and Rasheeda-35,Jeevan Sangram, Parivartan,Rajdulari and Shaitan ka pash-36, Rikshawala-38,Sitara-39, Beete din-47, pamposh-54 and Raju aur gangaram-64.

The cast of the film was Moghali (Leela Kanade), B.Bilimorea, Violet Smith,Savitri,Vinod, Savi Multani, Rusi Patel and others. The story, screenplay and direction was of Ezra Mir. The film was produced by Ambalal Patel, who was with Sagar Movietone when it was launched in 1932. The lyricist was Manohar lal Khanna.There were 5 songs sung by Seeta Kalyanpur and Moti Sagar -3 solos and 2 duets.

Lastly, about the singer of today’s song-Seeta Kalyanpur. I have not got any information about her anywhere, but I faintly remember having read somewhere that She was the sister of Suman Kalyanpur’s husband. However I can’t confirm it. With this song Film Pamposh and Singer Seeta Kalyanpur make their Debut on our Blog.

Today’s song is from the film Naya Raasta-1953.

Human nature is basically the same all over the world. There are some emotions and likes, common to all people everywhere in the world. Irrespective of Caste, Creed, Religion or Language, certain wishes are common all over the world. One of these likes, emotions or wishes is the Human Curiosity, anxiety and craze for things which are NEW. Be it Fashion, Books, Films, Food or a Gift, the very word NEW evokes common emotions all over the Human race !

Clever filmmakers understood this Human weakness for NEW or NAYA quickly and film titles featuring this word were used in an attempt to draw audience attention and a bee-line to the ticket window. Right from the early Talkie days i.e. the 1930’s films with Naya/Nayi were showcased. Nayi Duniya, Nayi Roshni and Naya Zamana were brought in the 30’s. The trend slowly caught up and in the 40’s, there were 12 films with Nayi or Naya in their titles. These were, Nai Baat, Nayi Bhabhi, Nai Duniya, Nayi kahani, Nayi Maa, Nayi Reet, Nayi Roshni, Nai Taleem, Naya Sansar, Naya Tarana and Naya Zamana. Not to be outdone, the 50’s came up with 14 film titles with nayi or naya. Some of them were well known films like Naya Daur, Nai Delhi, Naya Andaz (remake of famous musical film Bazaar-1949) and Naya Paisa.

However, it was a moot question as to how many films with Naya and Nayi in their titles stood up to quench the curiosity of their audience !

Today’s film Naya Raasta was based on a Gujarati drama “Sarvodaya”, staged by Shri Deshi Natak Samaj, which played in Bhangwadi theatre, Bombay for a record period. It became a superhit drama. The owner of Jayant Desai Productions, chose this drama to make a film. It was directed by its owner Jayant Desai himself. Unlike the hit Gujarati drama, the film could not run for a long period and was drubbed at the Box Office.

My observation about the films made on popular or famous books, novels or dramas is that it was only the Bangla film industry which had succeeded in making films on famous works of well known authors. Films remade in Hindi from these Bangla films were always successful all over India. In the 1930s and the 1940s, most films made by Bangla filmmakers, especially New Theatres, were equally popular even in their Hindi editions.

Such success was never seen in Hindi films. In the first place not many films were made on popular works of well known authors of Hindi, unlike Bangla films, on a large scale or even Marathi films on a smaller scale. It seems Hindi audiences liked to enjoy imaginary and sheerly entertaining films churned out by the various ” Story departments” of our filmmakers.

Film Naya Raasta-53 had music by Chitragupta-the melody maker, ably assisted by Dilip Dholakiya. There were 8 songs in the film. Today’s song is the 4th song to be discussed here. It is sung by Chitragupta, Dilip Dholakiya and Laxmi Roy. The cast of the film was Nirupa Roy, Agha, Manhar Desai, Bipin Gupta, Satyanarayana, Krishnakumari, Suryakumar, Umakant and many others.

Today’s song starts with English words Good Bye and Tata. Use of English words in the Mukhda of Hindi film songs is nothing new. Even in the 1933 film ” Karma”, there was a complete English song-“Now the Moon”. Again in the 1937 film ” Duniya na Maane” there was an English Poem recited by Shanta Apte with flawless pronunciation. In the 40’s, 50’s and then onwards in every decade English words in the Mukhada were found.

In the cast we find 2 interesting names-Satyanarayana and Surya kumar. Both were Dance Directors in Hindi films and both had a penchant for acting in the films. This habit is found in many directors too. The famous Alfred Hitchcock had a habit of making a cameo appearance in every of his films and it provided an interesting pastime game to his fans to locate him in the film. I too was one of the fans doing this religiously.

Robert aka Suryakumar (brother of Dancer/Choreographer Krishna Kumar) was born on 14-12-1924. He started his film career as assistant in the sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period, yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer’ was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films, that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded.

Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted Madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in the film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, when she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravan Kumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too, before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

The female singer in today’s song is Laxmi Roy. Laxmi Roy was the younger sister of Geeta Dutt. When Mukul Roy became a composer with his first film Bhed-50, he gave Laxmi Roy her first film song to sing. She was not a very good singer or her voice was not an extraordinary one. So no major composers noticed her. Chitragupta gave her one song in Bhakta Puran-52 and 2 songs in Nayaa Rasta-53. Composer Vinod tried her with one song in Aag ka Dariya-53. S. N. Tripathi gave her two songs in Nav Durga-53 and lastly she sang one song for Mukul Roy in Sailaab-56.

Pramod Chakravarty, who became a well known Director and producer later on, was working as assistant to Guru Dutt in Sailaab. During its making Laxmi and Pramod got married and Laxmi’s singing career came to a close ! In all she sang just 8 songs in 6 films.

Let us enjoy this interesting song….

Blog Day :

4940 Post No. : 16792

HAPPY REPUBLIC DAY TO ALL READERS !

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS to Atul ji, for recording a new milestone – 15 million visitors (1 Crore 50 Lakhs) to the Blog. This is the public mandate for the popularity of this Blog, all over the world.(WordPress posts are read in 198 countries of the world). This is an unique example of what one person can achieve by building a team (sustained for years together) with a common interest. The team is continuing because the Magnet is very effective and the Magnet is Atul ji. I wish him and the Blog many more such milestones and may the Blog retain its identity for reliable and credible information, complete lyrics and non-stop service to lovers of HFM. All the best !

Today’s song is from the film Rangeela-1953 – a Bhagwan Art Production film. The Producer and the Director was Master Bhagwan himself. The cast consisted of Bhagwan. Purnima, Baburao, Badri Pershad, Indira, Usha Shukla, Madhav Kale and many others. The Music Director was Jamal Sen. There were 11 songs in the film and today’s song is the 8th song to be discussed here. Actually this song is one of the best songs of the film and I wonder how this song was left untouched. Maybe for my use !

Jamal Sen. His name is not a famous name, because he gave music in just a few films, but the industry wallahs and lovers of classic music know him too well. He was one of those few ones who had immense capability, but like Sajjad Hussain, he too was stubborn, unbending, egoistic, outspoken and reserved. In an industry full of Chamchaas and cut throat competition, artistes like Jamal or Sajjad were misfits.

Lata Mangeshkar respected him so much that to sing in his films, she sent several feelers and messages to him till she was called by him. Lata sang 10 songs for him in 4 films. 6 were solos, 2 male duets and 2 were Female duets.

If talent were the only criterion for a composer to succeed, Jamal Sen should have been the most successful music director of his time. But he was not.

Jamal Sen’s proficiency in Singing, dancing (Kathak) and poetry, lent a touch of completeness to his musical acumen and set him apart from the run-of-the-mill composers, became a liability for him in an industry which had no value for real class. The result: a composer who gave such brilliant scores as in Shokhiyan and Daaera, died unsung, after a long spell of isolation.

Jamal Sen’s forefather Kesarji who hailed from Sujangarh in Rajasthan, was said to be a disciple of Tansen and was hence called Kesar Sen. Jamal Sen was born on 26th November 1904, at village Churu. The family tradition in music was passed on to Jamal at a very young age by his father Jeevan Sen, a court singer and an acknowledged Ustad. Jamal, who could sing and play various musical instruments was especially good on the dholak, tabla and Pakhawaj.

Jamal Sen had been in Calcutta initially and sang on AIR Calcutta. He met Pankaj Mullick and studied Ravindra Sangeet too. Due to this link, he joined Pankaj Mullick in giving music to film Kasturi-54 also. From there ,he shifted to Lahore in 1938.

While in Lahore, Jamal Sen was introduced by music director Shyam Sunder to Master Ghulam Haider, which marked the beginning of a fruitful association spanning 12 years. Sen’s knowledge of classical and folk music and his mastery over the dholak made him an asset to Ghulam Haider in films from Khazanchi (1941) to Majboor (1948), until Masterji migrated to Pakistan in the wake of Partition.

He shifted to Bombay, after partition. Then a chance meeting with director Kidar Sharma gave him a break in films as a composer, and he proved his virtuosity in his very first film, Shokhiyan in 1951.

The imaginative use of the raag Yaman Kalyan in “Sapana Ban Sajan Aaye” sung by Lata Mangeshkar was a testimony to the composer’s command over classical music. The songs — “Raaton Ki Neend Cheen li” by Suraiya, a ghazal where melody is predominant, and “Aai Barkha Bahar” by Lata, Pramodin & chorus, bore the richness of Rajasthani folk music. A “Door Des Se Aaja re” by Suraiya, Lata is a classic example of folk and classical music intermingling to create an enchanting melodic pattern.

Shokhiyan was followed by Kamal Amrohi’s Daera in 1953. Though a flop, the film is remembered for the perennial appeal of the bhajan, “Devta Tum Ho Mera Sahara, Maine Thama Hai Daman Tumhara” by Rafi, Mubarak Begum, & chorus, in Raag Bhoop. When the situation required, Sen could also compose a Western tune “Sun Sun Meri Kahani” by Rafi for Bhagwan’s ‘Rangeela’

Jamal Sen, who had begun his career as a singer on AIR, Calcutta—he was among the first to sing Vande Mataram on radio—should have stuck to a career in, classical singing. With his talent and lofty ideals, he was a misfit in films. His inability to manipulate and his refusal to compromise, made him a loner, and the mediocre films which he scored music for led to a colossal waste of his rich talent.

Jamal Sen knew Producer Director K.Asif for many years.Once they met somewhere and Asif took Jamal to the sets of Mughal-E Azam. There a dance sequence was to be shot and Gopikrishna was rehearsing the steps. Jamal saw everything but did not comment anything. As Asif knew him well, he suspected something and asked Jamal what was wrong. Jamal told him that the sets are absolutely appropriate but the dance steps and the ‘Bol’ were not commensurate with the period when Akbar was reigning. Asif asked him then and there to make new Dance steps, prepare the ‘Bol’ and make music for that sequence. Jamal Sen did that and Asif was more than happy.

However that piece of Dance and music was not used by Naushad in the film, possibly due to professional jealousy.

Later, when K. Asif announced Sasta Khoon Mehnga Paani, which had a Rajasthani backdrop, he-asked Jamal Sen to be an advisor to bring authenticity to Naushad’s compositions. But luck once again played truant with him and the project never saw the light of day.

A proud and arrogant man, Jamal Sen never went out of his way to grab work. As a result, he was slowly relegated to the periphery of the music scene, and then to oblivion. Shokhiyaan and Daaera were a thing of the past. A commerce-oriented cinema had little use for his talent. Under the circumstances, it was a poor consolation to him that his imaginative score in the documentary,Madhumakhi, won laurels abroad.

Jamal Sen knew his prowess. And was proud of it. Once, after hearing him sing, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan called him a `Tansen’ and a ‘Sur Ka Bichhu’, Ustad Amir Khan described him as ‘Sangeet Shastri’. Notwithstanding the impressive titles and tributes, Jamal Sen continued to exist in a state of penury, unwanted and uncared for.

Jamal Sen should have been the most successful music director of his time. But he was not. In his last days Sen had but one friend, composer Ghulam Mohammed, who after being afflicted with a serious heart ailment, had shifted to Bombay’s far off suburb, Borivlii, where Sen was living in a dilapidated room.

In his later years, out of sheer frustration, he turned to liquor, and lived on the hope that his sons Shambhu Sen and Madan Sen would carry forward the family’s rich tradition in music. But Madan suddenly died of heart failure at the young age of 40. And he never recovered from the shock. Within a year, on April 12, 1979, he too died.

Jamal Sen composed music for 13 Hindi films.
Filmography:
1. Shokhiyan (1951)
2. Daera (1953)
3. Dharmapatni (1953)
4. Rangeela (1953)
5. Kasturi (1954), with Pankaj Mullick
6. Ritu Bahar (1954)
7. Patit Paawan (1955)
8. Amar Shaheed (1960)
9. Baghdad (1961)
10. Alha Udal (1962)
11. Manchali (1962)
12. Sankalpa (1974)
13. Pehla Kadam (1981)

Actually, Jamal Sen had retired in 1962 itself. When film Pehla kadam-81 was planned, a song which he had composed for film Shokhiyan, but had not used, was utilised in this film-Pehla kadam-81.

The cast consists of an actress Indira. Actually, the film Rangeela-1953 happens to be her Debut Hindi film. Indira is a ‘Same Name Confusion’ artiste. During the silent Era and early Talkie period, there was one Indira Devi. Her real name was Effie Hippolet- an Anglo-Indian. She acted in 24 silent films since 1927, but did only two Talkie films-Al-Hilal-35 and Wamaq Azra-1935. Then there is the comedian fatty Indira Bansal who was operative from 1951 to 1981, and worked in 116 films. This Indira was different.

Indira, one of Punjabi cinema’s most popular leading ladies of the 1960s, was born on August 6, 1938 in northern India. Growing up in an aristocratic family in the Punjab village of Kharian, her family lost everything when they had to flee their home during partition to settle in Kanpur. In 1952 her family shifted to Bombay where an Elder brother ran a successful business.

Indira was noticed by the popular comedian Bhagwan while he was shooting a movie at Jagriti Studios, and she was put in the cast of his film Rangeela (1953). Raj Kapoor, who happened to be visiting the set of Rangeela, noticed Indira and later cast her as the daughter of a rich industrialist in his film Shree 420 (1955).

Indira continued to appear in supporting roles in major Hindi productions like Funtoosh (1956), Mirza Sahibaan-1957, Yahudi (1958), and Dil Deke Dekho(1959). She had just appeared as the lead in the low budget yarn Jungle Ki Duniya (1959) when she was cast as the heroine in a Punjabi film titled Yamla Jatt in 1960. This was followed that same year by two more Punjabi pictures, Do Lacchian and Kiklee. All three films were very successful.

Returning to Hindi language movies, she found herself much in demand for B-films with colorful titles like Maya Mahal (1963), Jungle Boy (1963), Tarzan Aur Jadugar (1963), Pahadi Nagin (1964), Arab Ka Lal (1964), Son of Zimbo (1966), Sheba and Hercules (1967), Tarzan in Fairyland (1968) and CID Agent 302 (1968), sometimes playing the heroine, but more often than not as a vamp or villain. Occasionally she would snag a nice supporting role in a major production like Do Dil (1965) or Mere Huzoor (1968), and she still continued to star in Punjabi fare.

Sometimes billed as Indira Billi (her real name was Indira Kaur) she was interviewed in 1963 for Picture Post magazine where she talked about her beginnings: “I had not the good fortune of stepping into films and finding myself a heroine right from the start as had been the case with many glamor girls these days. It was a life of toil and tears, fighting every inch, every day, and month after month. Sometimes I was fed up, and felt tired of the ceaseless struggle to make my presence felt. With the struggle for existence keen and with not enough money, those early days were none too happy for a girl aspiring for a respectable place in the film world, let alone stardom. Sometimes I had my misgivings whether I was right in coming into films. Some kind of inferiority complex took hold of me and I thought several times that I would never become a star.”

Indira married cinema owner Shiv Kumar in the early to mid-1960s and left the film scene in the early 1970s.(Thanks to shri Mike Barnum ji and his blog-cinemajadoo.com).

After the phenomenal success of Albela-51, Master Bhagwan was in the seventh Heaven and floated his own production company,Bhagwan Art Productions and started making films after films, without realising that Albela’s success was mainly due to C.Ramchandra’s music and Geeta Bali. The result was as expected. Slowly but steadily, Bhagwan started going into the trap of huge debts due to unsuccessful films produced by him.

After a while, a day came when Bhagwan had to sell one by one all of his 10 cars, Bungalow etc and at the end of his career, he had to live in a one room tenement in a chawl, on the very street in Dadar named after his own uncle.

RANGEELA-1953 was one of the early failures of Bhagwan, in the series of future flops, beginning the imminent decline in few more years to come. This film was produced and directed by Bhagwan himself.

This was a story of a village boy-Babulal, who is eager to study in school, but due to his wicked step mother, has to do household chores instead. Fed up of this and to try his luck, he runs away to Bombay, where he meets Vidya Devi, a kind and young school teacher, who not only helps him but also starts teaching him, seeing his earnestness. Over a period, to sustain himself, Babulal, who was called Buddu in his village gets educated and also sells Chana, near to his school. Duly, he becomes a successful businessman, owning a shop, house etc. He is under the impression that Vidya Devi is in his love, but he is disillusioned when he hears a conversation between Vidya and her would be husband. Vidya refers to him as a good and honest student only.

Babulal learns that his father is in financial troubles and his house is up for auction. To help father, he collects all his money and is about to leave for village, when he learns that Vidya’s marriage to her fiance is in trouble, as Vidya’s father can not gather that much money.

Babulal is in two minds. Finally. he gives the money to her father for marriage, sells his shop, business and house to collect money and leaves for the village to help father.

The entire story went on predicted lines and did not succeed.

Here is the duet of Rafi and Asha Bhosle, with chorus. Let us enjoy this catchy song.

THis “social” movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Only the audio of the song is available. My guess is that Nirupa Ray has played the Bhabhi in this movie and lip synced in Madhubala Jhavery’s voice in this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa (Bhaagyawaan)(1953) Singers-Sulochana Kadam, Madhubala Jhavery, Lyrics-Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa
jiya jhoom jhoom jhoom kar gaaye
kaun duniya mein hoga mujh jaisa
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye
jiya rom jhoom kar gaaye

meri bhaabhi kitni achchi
kitna laad ladaati
paas nahin hoti hai mere
mujhko nahin rulaati
meri bhaabhi ka
o meri bhaabhi ka, pyaar ye hai kaisa
nahin meri samajh mein aaye
meri bhaabhi ne bheja sandesa
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye
jiya room jhoom kar gaaye

bhagwaa aa aa aa aan
bhagwaan bhed ye kaisa
nahin meri samajh mein aaye
ek hi dharti
ek hi ambar
ek hi jeev banaaye
ek abhaaga ek saubhaaga
ek hi seep ke moti
ek daal ke do phoolon ko, duniya kahaan pe roki
ek koi maathe par rakhta, ek koi thhukraaye
nahin meri samajh me aaye
bhagwaa aa aa aa aa aa aan

mujhe bulaayegi meri bhaabhi
degi doodh katore
degi doodh katore
mujhe sulayegi meri bhaabhi
suna suna kar lori,
suna suna kar lori
bhaag ki toone khoob banaai dori
kahin hansaaye kahin rulaaye
baat na jaaye todi
bhookha nanha munna kaise
apna man bahlaaye
pankh nahin hai jo ud jaati
devar mujhe bulaaye
mera devar mujhe bulaaye
