Today’s song is from the ‘1959’ movie ‘Saahil’.

I recall becoming aware of this title while going throough HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) during my stay at Nagpur. I would regularly browse through the IIIrd volume of HFGK for the decade 1951-1960 those days(2015-2017). After that I went to Kenya for a project which lasted around three years. I came back after completion of the project in December’2019. Since then, I am more or less sharing songs from seventies and eighties, sometimes end of sixties. Songs of 1950s have become few and far between.

I do not recall being aware of the songs of ‘Saahil-1959’. It was only a few days back that our regular reader Shri. Deepak Patwardhan ji suggested a song from this movie which was sung by Hemant Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. On checking the details, I find that the song he had suggested had already been posted on the blog long back (in 2011) and it is from the movie ‘Aandhiyaan-1952’. The song is ‘wo chaand nahin hai dil hai kisi deewaane ka’ ….

However, that gave me an opportunity to know more about the songs from ‘Saahil-1959’. I listened to some of them. Today I am presenting a lovely duet sung by Hemant Kumar and Asha Bhonsle from this movie.

“Saahil-1959” was directed by Agrawal K. Bhushan for ‘Filmnagar Studios, Bombay’. Agrawal K. Bhushan was also the producer of this movie.

“Saahil-1959” had Shammi Kapoor, Chitra, Murad, Sapru, Amar, Jankidas, Rajan Kapoor, Kuldeep Kaur, and others.

This movie had the following ten songs in it.

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Composer
01 Sheetal pawan sanaasan doley Janardan Muktidoot Asha Bhonsle Suresh Talwar
02 Aayi milan ki raat, raja ho raja Anjaan Asha Bhonsle,chorus Suresh Talwar
03 O gori huaa huaa… maan ya na Jeet Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, chorus Suresh Talwar
04 Raat aadhi ho gayi…tere mere mere tere dil… Janardan Muktidoot Asha Bhonsle, Hemant Kumar Suresh Talwar
05 Dekho ji, hamen na dena dhokha Indeevar Asha Bhonsle D.C. Dutt
06 Afsos meri taqdeer bante hi bigad gayi Indeevar Asha Bhonsle D.C. Dutt

09 Aaja re manjhdhaar mein …ye pyaar ki pukaar hai Taban Jhansvi Geeta Dutt Suresh Talwar
10 Tum judaa kya ho gaye… khatm kar de daastaan Taban Jhansvi Geeta Dutt Suresh Talwar

HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions in the footnote that the songs of this movie were recorded in 1954-1955, though the movie was released in 1959.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.04.1959.

Only one song ‘aaja re manjhdhaar mein … ye pyaar ki pukaar hai’ has been posted on the blog on 20.10.2016.

Today we are going to listen to the second song from this movie. Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Hemant Kumar.

Lyrics are by Kulbhushan and music is composed by Suresh Talwar.

Let us enjoy today’s song. Only audio of this song is available.

Today’s song is from a C grade Stunt film- Flying Ranee-1959.

This song was quite popular in its time and indeed it is a very melodious song. Only thing is that the tune of the song is such that you feel like listening to an O P Nayyar song. In the late 50’s, OPN had given several foot tapping and melodious songs. But such a song coming from Music Director B N Bali is very astonishing. He was not known to give such good songs. He was, however, branded as a ” Copy Cat”. In many of his songs , you feel that there was another such song already. Even today’s song is a copy of a popular OPN song.

The music for this film was given by composer B.N. Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this B N Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films. H.C. Bali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering K L Saigal in the early 30s.

B N Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer. He sang 5 songs in 4 films – Bhikari-49, Bedard-49, Mastani-55 and Tikdambaaz-59. He even acted in 1 film – Mastani-55. He was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from Bedard-1949 up to Do Dilwale-1973, a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film-Bahut Door (40s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973.Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, B N Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

‘Jab un ka khayal aata hai’-sung by Rafi in Pahla pehla pyar was a copy of Rafi’s ‘Jin raaton me neend ud jaati hai’ by Hansraj Behl.
‘Sapne me saiyan tum aaya na karo’-Asha/manna Dey song was a true copy of O P Nayyar’s ‘ Ek pardesi mera dil le gaya’
‘Tu us ka kar bhala’ Rafi in Raja Vikram sang the same “Bhagwaan’ tune as in ” O duniya ke rakhwaale’ etc. etc.

When I saw this film’s title, Flying Ranee-1959, I remembered that this was the name of a train plying between Mumbai and Surat. Few years back, when we (myself, Sadanand Kamath ji and late Bharat bhai Upadhyaya ji) planned to visit Surat to meet shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, we wanted to travel by this train, but its timing was not suitable for us.

All over the world, few selective trains are given special names like The orient Express or the Siberia special etc. Even in India also, there are many trains which have special names. Our creative minded, intelligent and genius filmmakers used these train names for some of their films. I found the following Train name films in the Hindi film index.

Punjab Mail….1939
Toofan Mail….1934 and 1950’s (UR)
Toofan Express….1938
Deccan Queen….1936 and 1962
Howrah Express….1961
Flying Express….1949
Flying Ranee-1939 and 1959
Then there were also films titled Miss Punjab Mail….1958, Miss frontier Mail….1936 and Miss Toofan Mail….1958 and 1980.
Incidentally, there were 3 films having the word Train in their titles…. The Train….1970, Train to Pakistan….1997 and Train Dakaiti….1984.

The cast of the film was Samar Roy,, Prakash, Nishi, Naazi, Heera Sawant, Ram Singh, W M Khan, Tun Tun, Jeevankala etc etc. I have no information on Samar Roy. I only know that he first acted in Bangla films. In 1949, he first came to Bombay and acted in film ” Swayamsiddha”-1949, opposite Shanta Apte. It was her last Hindi film, produced by her. I am not sure, but I believe, this film was also made in Bangla language. As such the film had most Bengali actors in the cast. After this, Samar Roy acted in 42 more films in Bombay till his last film in Hindi- Akhari Kasam-1979. He returned to Calcutta and after few films, retired. In Bombay, he acted mostly in B and C grade films initially, but later on did character roles in good social films. Coincidentally, he worked in 3 Train films, namely….Toofan mail-50’s, Flying Ranee-1959 and Deccan Queen-1962. In addition, he also acted in film ….Bombay Central….1960, – a name for a Train Terminus in Bombay !

One interesting name in the cast is Ram Singh. The actor Ram Singh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he did Hero’s and Villain’s role in many films. .His entry in films and life story is very interesting.

During the 1942 ‘ Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated Hostels. Two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Dwivedi – who later on became well known as Kavi Pradeep- and the other was Ram Singh- who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall, fair and handsome. V. Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. His family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved, when he never returned.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! There he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and enquired. The officials brought out their own son- Ramsingh before them !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the Police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich Zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (U.P.), in 1920. After graduating, while doing his M.A. he joined films. His first film was Ramshastri-44, then came Chand-44, Lakhrani-45 and Hum ek hain-46….all Prabhat films. While in Prabhat, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they gave him roles in almost every film..

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with Heroine Ranjit Kumari ( real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he had 4 children.

Ramsingh played Hero, Villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films were, besides 4 Prabhat films, Gaon-47, Shaheed-48, Khidki-49, Aparadhi-50 ( He was the Hero, opposite Madhubala), Sargam-50, Sangram-50, Shrimati ji-52, Jaal-52, Baaz-53 etc etc. In his later career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and Mythologicals. His last film was Sati Sulochana-69. ( 2 more films Veer Chhatrasal-71 and Mere Bhaiya-72 were released after he left films).

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit kumari and children in 1970 and started doing Agriculture. The U.P. Chief Minister H.N.Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. Bahuguna, to help him, immediately established ” U.P. Film Corporation ” and made Ramsingh its Chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the fields again.

Ramsing started drinking, against medical advice and died in 1984, in his village.

Let us now enjoy the copied tune in today’s song…..


Song- Sapne mein sainyya tum aaya na karo (Flying Rani)(1959) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyricist- Najmi Kanpuri, MD- B N Bali

Lyrics

sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
haye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

o ho sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

meri gali aake tum jaane nahin paaoge
jaaoge to sainya tum bada pachhtaaoge
jaaoge to sainya tum bada pachhtaaoge
dil leke tum itraaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

hey sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

ankhiyaan milaai hai to mukhda na modna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna

hey mohe chhup chhup ke sataaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
oye oye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

paas bula lo mohe apna bana lo
dil mein bithha lo ji
aankhon mein chhupa lo
dil mein bitha lo ji
aankhon mein chhupa lo
aha ha door door rahke tarsaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

oh sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

Today’s song is a foot tapping song from the film Fashionable wife-1959.

Nepotism,Corruption and Lack of Nationalism are the 3 ills common to most Indians.These things have been so common that not only now they are deep rooted in our behaviour, but also we have stopped considering them as vices anymore. They are a part of our life in many ways.

Corruption at every level of every aspect of our living is practiced unabashedly. From giving bribes to a policeman for breaking a traffic rule to giving bribes to get a Govt. Contract has become an easy way to replace discipline and hard work. After 15th August and 26th January, torn Indian Flags on the road and in the dustbins as well as stealing Govt. property from Railway Coaches and Govt. offices is a routine sight we come across. The plum jobs going to close relatives of big officers is no longer considered a crime !

These are very irritating matters when they concern and trouble us. If it is not concerning us, we take them philosophically !

In India these 3 criminal vices are spread to all walks of life and are found in almost every department. Can our Film Industry be far off from this ? Certainly Not !

Those already successful and adorning a high pedestal position in the film line, try to push their children or siblings into this line, irrespective of whether they have the talent or not. For others ” The Casting Couch” is seen as a kind of corruption or ‘wilful’ bribing. Making films with distorted History intentionally and glorifying the historical characters who looted India and did unlimited harm to Indians is nothing but a lack of Nationalism !

Nepotism is one ill which has been there in the films from the beginning. Bringing sons and daughters-even the wife- as actors has been there always. The Heroine of the First Indian Talkie film “Alam Ara”-1931, Zubeida had her 2 sisters and mother in the film line. One of the actors of this film- Prithviraj kapoor practically became the father of Indian films. His all sons, Grandsons, great grandsons and daughters came into films.

Acting is not a Genetic quality. It is not necessary that every successful actor or director’s children can become successful actors automatically. More often than not the star sons and daughters have (luckily) failed, saving the audience the trauma of bearing their stony presence on the silver screen. There is a long list of such failed stars, star sons and star daughters, but I quote here only a few examples.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj,Shammi and Shashi,who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony Walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup Kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti Ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of famous family members, these and so many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given fair opportunities to display their talent on the screen , but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar , which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director ,who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan. Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar . But the movie flopped ,as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan ,who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from the scene forever . His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued a film career ,but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him ,who got a chance to appear opposite illustrious heroines , unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen , no film maker came forward to sign them . Out of sight is out of mind ,it was a matter of time when the public as well as the film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, is a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951 . It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan . The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films , among hundreds of aspirants . Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge setback when Aman flopped .He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia ,opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately , Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea ,Rattan Chopra understood & wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physiques , but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards the film industry . Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting .The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke. Premender with Kumud Chhugani in Holi Aayee Re.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev kapoor, Manish kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

Among them, some film names which I remember off hand are Arjun in Malhar-51, Rattan Chopra in Aman-67,Mom ki Gudia-72, Vijay Kumar in Alif laila-54,Premendra in Holi aayee re-70, Deepak kumar in Aabroo-68, Ajay in Wapas-69, Som Dutt in mann ka meet-68, Vikram in Julie-75,Rajeev Kapoor in Raam teri Ganga maili-85, Shekhar Suman in Utsav-84, Kaycee Mehra in Chhabilee-60 and Mem Didi-61, Prashant in Sehra-63, Ashok Sharma in Hamari yaad aayegi-61, Ajit Chitnis in Aaj ki baat-55, Nusrat Kardar in Dard-47, Manish in SaraswatiChandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

All this came to my mind when I saw the film cast of Fashionable wife. The cast included Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Radhakishen, Manorama, Leela Mishra, Daisy Irani and many others. heroine Jaymala was the wife of the producer, director and the owner of the banner ‘Adarshlok’, Bombay – B.K.Adarsh. This was her Debut film as a Heroine. At first glance, one will tend to feel that being the director’s wife must have been her way to be the film’s Heroine. But to be fair, she was already in the film line before marriage, though not as a Heroine.

Jaymala was born on 21-8-1938 at kasur, Punjab. She always craved to become an actress. She came to Bombay along with a relative and got a small role in the film Mandir-1948.

Her first major film was Hazar pariyan-1957. Some of her films were Ramudada, Durga pooja, Harshchandra Taramati, Love and Murder, Spy in Rome, Rambha Haran, Balak, Sampoorna Teerth Yatra, Veer Arjun, Babruwahan, Aaj ka ye Ghar etc.

She acted in 24 films. She even sang a song in the film Fashionable wife-1959.

After marriage with Adarsh Lok,she debuted as a Heroine in FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959. She had a double role in this film.Then she continued with Adarsh Lok’s films as a Heroine only. After husband’s death, she managed his production company. Her last film was Private Life-1983, as a Heroine and a Producer. Her son Taran Adarsh is a famous film critic.

She died on 27-7-1997 in Mumbai.

It is a coincidence that my last post was also on a film where sisters were seen in double roles. Today’s film also has sisters in double roles again. The film story is…

FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959 was produced and directed by Adarsh Lok, the Music Director was the duo of Suresh-Talwar ( Assistant Johnny Gomes) and the lyricist was Bharat Vyas. Story,Screenplay and Dialogues were by Waheed Qureshi. The cast was Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Leela Mishra, Iftekar, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Radha Kishen, Manorama etc.

Girdhari and Susheela were a couple who continuously fought over only one point-how to bring their twin daughters. Susheela wanted them to be traditional and Girdhari was keen on making them ultra modern” to face the new World’. Finally the couple separated with Ragini opting for the traditional Mother and Kamini staying with her Modern Papa.

Ragini marries Balraj(Abhi Bhattacharya) and she is very happy. However her Mother in law(Leela Mishra) is not happy with her and there are daily fights, culminating in Ragini leaving her house and doing social work independently.

Kamini marries Natwar(Anup Kumar), her Dance trainer and happily lives with him, enjoying life. She has no time for any household responsibilities. She spends quite a lot arranging frequent parties. Due to all this her young devar Raju runs away from the house and Natwar is also fed up with her.

In short both the girls have a spoiled family life.

There is comic relief in the form of Manorama and Radha Kishen, who are the neighbours.

After many twists, coincidences and meaningless happenings, the girls learn their lessons. The film tries to stress that Traditional ways are always better, but they also must mix a little modernity in keeping with the times.

At the end Girdhari and Susheela unite,so do Kamini-Natwar and Balraj and Ragini.

Today’s song is sung by Jaymala and chorus. This is the only song which she ever sang in films. With this song she makes her Debut as a singer,on our Blog.

In the second half of the 50’s decade, films were deeply influenced by Rock N Roll music. This song is also like that.

Today’s song is from the film Do Behnen-1959.

The film was made by Brij kala Mandir, Bombay. Produced by J P Sehgal and Kailash Kapoor, it was directed by Kedar Kapoor. Music was composed by Vasant Desai and all the 7 songs were written by Kavi Pradeep. The cast of the film was Shyama, Rajendra Kumar, Chand Usmani, Radha Kishen, Tiwari, Ram Mohan, Leela Mishra and many more.

The director Kedar Kapoor (2.9.1927-5.6.1987) directed 35 films from 1954 to 1983. In his career he was branded as Dara Singh Specialist, because he directed as many as 19 films of Dara Singh. His daughter Madhu kapoor was also an actress, in those days. The pair of composer Vasant Desai and Kavi Pradeep was unusual. They came together only in 2 films of 1959, namely south made School master and Do Behnen. Kavi pradeep was not acceptable to many well known Music Directors of those times, because Pradeep insisted on singing at least one song in every film and he used to force the composer to use the tunes he made for his songs. Due to this, MDs who were famous, could afford to deny working with him, like Naushad for example. Even Vasant Desai had to give one song from both his films to Pradeep to sing.

The story of Do behnen-59 was a story of twin sisters who were poles apart in nature. Shyama did a double role for both sisters. Earlier K.A.Abbas’ story in film ” Anhonee’-1952 had handled such a story. But that too was not the first one. In 1942, the film “Muqabala” depicted 2 sisters having different natures. In that film the Stunt Queen Fearless Nadia did the double role of sisters.

Having a double role in films was not a new thing. Let us take a brief look at the history of Double roles in films. As far back as into the initial era of making silent films, a male actor, Anna Salunke, had done the double role of Shri Ram and Seeta in film ” Lanka Dahan”-1917, made by Dadasaheb Phalke. Later on actress Patience Cooper did double roles of Twin sisters in silent film “Patni Pratap”-1923 and then again as Mother and daughter in silent film “Kashmiri Sundari”-1925. Master Vithal did a double role in the film Raj Tarang-1927.

When Talkie films started, the first film to have a double role was “Awara Shehzada”-1933.The Hero was Shahu Modak. The film was based on Mark Twain’s popular novel “The prince and the pauper’ in 1881. With this film India had beaten Hollywood in this race, because the first Talkie film on this novel was made in Hollywood only in 1937, with the same title of novel. The film featured the handsome Erol Flynn. Another popular film was ” The prisoner of Zenda’ based on the novel of same name by Anthony Hope in 1894 in 1937 and 1952.

In Hindi, a major hit film on double roles was Geeta-1940. In this film the hero-Chandramohan did a role of Father and son and the Heroine Durga Khote did the double role of Mother and wife. The film advocated the principle for the first time in films that ” Crime never pays”. This theme was later used in many films like “Kismat”-43 and “Sangram”-50. Film Geeta became so popular that it was remade as “Ustad’-1957 and “Karmayogi”-1978. Ashok kumar and Raaj Kumar did double roles in these films.

In the south made film “Chandralekha’-1948, the Hero Ranjan had a double role as twin brothers. The trend of making films with double roles went on increasing steadily. I have the statistics of such films from 1931 to 2014. As per this, the double role films were 3 in the 40’s, 11 in 50’s, 37 in 60’s, 63 in 70’s, 62 in 80’s, 81 in 90’s, 45 in 2000 and 17 till 2014.

Leading actors did double roles in films thus –

Amitabh-15 films
Rajesh K. – 11 films
Mithun Ch. -11
Govinda -10
Jeetendra -9
6 films each by Akshay kr., Hema M., Rishi K., Sanjeev kr.,and Shri Devi
5 films by Anupam K., Dilip kr., Mehmood and SRKhan
4 films by Ajay D, Anil k., J.Shroff, KK, Rekha, Sadhana, Salman Khan, Shashi K.
3 films by 15 actors. 2 and 1 by many actors. I have all the names but it will be too long a list.

So much for films with double roles.

The story of Do Behnen-59 was written by eminent writer Pt. Mukhram Sharma ( 29-5-1909 to 25-4-2000): The most famous writer of stories with social themes in the fifties, Pandit Mukhram Sharma had a long association with B. R. Chopra. He had written stories for many of his hit films. Some of his notable films are Ek Hi Raasta, Aulad, Sadhna and Dhool Ka Phool. Pt. Sharma had also won Filmfare awards for Sadhna, Vachan and Aulad. His other hit films include Santaan, Do Kalian, Jeene Ki Raah, Raja Aur Rank, Dadi Maa, Gharana and Talaq. Pt. Mukhram Sharma won Sangeet Natak Academy Award (1961).

Before coming to Bombay, he was a teacher in Meerut. In 1939, he came to Bombay, but could not get any job. He moved to Poona and joined Prabhat films as a Tutor for Marathi and Hindi. In Poona, he married a Marathi actress Shanta Mujumdar.He was with Marathi films till 1952, then he came to Bombay and got the first Filmfare award for Best story for his film Aulad-54.

Then there was no looking back. After winning Filmfare awards 3 times, Academy Award and Lifetime achievement Zee award, Sharma retired in 1980 and went back to Meerut.

The story of Do Behnen-59 was……….

Bombay-based look-alike twin sisters, Vasanti and Malti ( Shyama ), live a wealthy lifestyle with their parents. Their father, Raghunath ( S.K.Prem), arranges devout Vasanti’s marriage with Ramesh ( Rajendra Kumar), who lives with his widower father, a doctor ( Tiwari), and a sister, Rekha ( Chand Usmani). After the wedding, Raghunath is shocked to find Malti singing and dancing with a male named Anokhey( Ram Mohan) in a nightclub.

He brings her home, admonishes her severely and forbids her to leave the home. In response, she elopes with Anokhey, travels to Poona and books a room in Paramount Hotel. Shortly thereafter Anokhey shows his true colors, squanders her money, starts drinking, and frequenting prostitutes. He then takes her jewelry and walks out of her life. In order to recover the rent, the Hotel Manager contacts the Mathurs, and Vasanti and her mom ( Mumtaz Begum) attend to take Malti back home.

While traveling home, the train meets with an accident and Vasanti passes away. Her mother tells everyone that it is Malti who has passed away, and compels Malti to take over as Vasanti, which she does reluctantly.

After going to her house, she finds it very difficult to adjust to the sati savitri type behaviour. However, slowly she starts loving the new house and also her husband. Ramesh many times gets puzzled with her behaviour, but ignores it.

Finally the truth is out one day, but by that time Ramesh starts liking her and so a New Malti takes over her dead sister’s place officially.

Today’s song is the 7th and the final song of this film. It makes the film ” YIPPIED ” ! It is a good song too. Enjoy….

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 22
————————————————————————————–

The month of february 2012 was a “normal” month by the standard of the blog those days. A typical day of that month saw 6, 7, or 8 songs getting covered in the blog.

23 February 2012 was very much a “normal” day for the blog in the sense that seven songs from seven different movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details :-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks

Today’s song is from an obscure C grade action film Chini Jadugar-1959.

The film was made under the banner of Noshirwan Movietone, Bombay, – possibly owned by the director of this film – Noshir Engineer. He was also its Producer. He was a specialist director of action/stunt/costume films. He directed 7 films, starting with the film Inteqam-1947. The came Shamsheerbaz-53,Carnival Queen-55, Diler Daku-57, Circus Queen-59, Chini Jadugar-59 and lastly it was Noor Mahal-1965, In 5 of these films the MD was Shafi M Nagari.

The composer for the film Chini Jadugar-59 was ‘Shafi M. Nagri’. It was a riddle. Who was this Shafi Nagri ? In a few films, his name also appeared as Shafi Nagri. I was tired of searching for information in books and on the Internet, about this Shafi. Finally, the riddle was solved by Shri Girdharilal ji Vishwakarma, the famous Historian and Collector of songs. He explained that this person was none other than Shafi mohd. Nagri -popularly known as Mohd. Shafi !

Composer Mohd. Shafi ( 25-12-1925 to 30-4-1980 ) was one of those talented artistes of Hindi Film Music who was only used by others and never got enough credit for his work.He is honoured as “The original Arranger” in the industry.He was an excellent Sitar player. He started with the Imperial Film company-where he played Bulbul Tarang. In 1937 he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and played Sitar in films Kapal Kundala-39 and Aandhi-40, as an assistant to Pankaj Mullick and K.C.Dey. He played the sitar in the film “Ujala”-42. In this film, the Hero-Prithviraj kapoor was shown as a Sitar player,hence the expertise of Shafi was fully utilised in this film.

Starting with the film ‘Haqdaar’-46, he gave music to 19 Hindi films and 2 Marathi films. He worked with Naushad, as his assistant and Arranger, for 14 years.He was considered a ‘Dada’ in Background music.He gave Background music to about 70 films( for Naushad and others). For Mughal E Azam, K.Asif used to send his personal car to fetch him to studio. It was said that Shafi gave the first break to Suman Hemmadi(Kalyanpur) in Mangu-54 and Hemlata in the unreleased film Iraada.

Shafi had bought his first car when he was just 15 year old. He had a posh flat in Shivaji Park area of Dadar in Bombay. In the end , everything was gone.He had helped families of Shakeel Badayuni and Ghulam Mohammed after their deaths. However in his last difficult days , except Rafi, no one came for his help. In the final few months, his memory had gone. His Begum ruefully said,” Good that he does not remember anything. All took his advantage and gave him nothing. There were more things to forget than to remember ! ”

It is said that the entire music of Sohni Mahiwal-58 was done by him. Naushad was sick during this period and did not attend even one recording. “Do hanson ka joda” and “Dhoondo dhoondo re saajna” Gunga Jamuna-61 were his creations. He used to give tunes to many composers too-whoever asked for help.

It is believed that Shafi also acted in 2 films, namely Jungi Jawan-43 and Diler Detective-48. As a MD, he gave music to 19 films and composed 125 songs.

Film Chini jadugar-1959 had music by Shafi M Nagari. Now, who is this composer ? A search on HFGK gives names of films for him, namely Krishna Kanhaiya-52, Shamsheerbaz-53, Sher dil-54, Carnival Queen-55, Diler Daku-57, Circus Queen-59 and Chini Jadugar-59. Well known Music expert and collector Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has confirmed that it is none other than composer Mohd. Shafi only. In this name he gave music to 7 films and composed 48 songs.

During the Studio system and later on, few known MDs too availed of this trick to find a way out of the rules. For example, Snehal Bhatkar used different names to give music as long as he worked in HMV. C.Ramchandra used the name Annasaheb or P Ramakant when giving music to action/stunt films, Lata Mangeshkar gave music in the name of Anandghan, Hafiz Khan Mastana used the alias Gunjan and S D Batish used Nirmal Kumar. So, it is no wonder that while assisting Naushad for so many years, Mohd. Shafi used an alias for giving music to outside films.

The cast of the film Chini Jadugar consisted of Kamran, Krishnakumari,Shaikh, Habeeb,Vasantrao pehelwan, Ismail,Rajni, Moti (Dog), Ustad (Horse) and many others. Kamran was the Hero. Kamran khan Rizvi was a regular Stunt Hero and I used to enjoy his films. He started his film career with Baghi Sipahi-36, a film made by East India Film Co, Calcutta. A.R.Kardar was its Director. Later on Kamran came to Bombay, along with kardar, who was his Patron for quite some time.

Hero Kamran and Heroine Nazi was a popular combination of 12 stunt films, those days. Kamran worked in 52 films. In 1963, film Bachpan was being directed by Nazar Ahmed. He had some disputes with the Producer and he left the film midway. The Debutant Hero Salim ( father of actor Salman Khan) and Debutant Heroine Menaka ( Eldest sister of Daisy and Honey Irani…all daughters of Mrs. P.N. Irani, a greedy mother, who spoiled the childhood of her children for money) were in trouble. Kamran stepped in and completed the film by directing the balance part, without taking any money. During this period, he fell in love with Menaka and they got married. Her film career ended there only. They had one son and one daughter ( Actor, compere, Director Sajid Khan and famous Choreographer and Director Farah khan).

Kamran stopped getting Hero’s roles, as stunt films were not being made to that extent in the 70s and later period. He decided to become producer and Director. This proved to be his nemesis. He failed miserably,lost everything and became an alcoholic. He divorced Menaka, who worked as a Housekeeper in a 5 star hotel (Hotel Sea Rock) and he lived in his big flat in Versova with 2 children but no money. He died in 1985.

Kamran directed 11 films from Panch Ratan-65 to Ban Manush-80. His last film as an actor was Nastik-83.

In the cast there is the name of an actor, Shaikh. 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 7 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, 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 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 had 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.

Today’s song is a duet, sung by S.Balbir and Suhasini Kolhapure. She sang only 6 songs in 5 films like Sabse bada Rupiah-55, Shahi bazar-57, Chini Jadugar-59, Laalach-60 and Saaya-61., before disappearing without a trace.

With this song, film Chini Jadugar-59 makes a Debut on the Blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 9
————————————————————————————–

Today (18 January 2022) is a foggy wintery shivery morning in North India. To add to this woe, the nation is also into the grips of the third wave of Covid-19 virus.

This day ten years ago, viz 18 january 2012 was almost world apart. Those days I was in a stage of transition, viz I had been transferred to Bilaspur, but my attachmnent from Nagpur was still there, where I still had my accomodation. Since I had not got my accomodation at Bilaspur where I had been transferred, I would go back to Nagpur during weekends and holidaysat the first available opportunity.

Even without any proper accomodation, I had settled down well into my blogging, even if the rate of daily posts had gone down a bit.

It is clear that 18 January 2012 was no where near as difficult a day as 18 january 2022. Unlike today, when I woke up late and that too reluctantly, I has woken up early ten years ago as was my wont. Six songs were covered on that day. All these songs got covered before noon.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5313 Bichhde huye pardesi Barsaat(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5314 Apni nazar se unki nazar tak Ham Log (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now

5317 Jaan chali jaaye jiyaa nahin jaaye Anjaana (1969) Movie YIPPEED by now
5318 Tere sang pyaar main nahin todna Naagin (1976) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that “Santaan”(1959) is one of the movies that is not yet YIPPEED. So this movie is still eligible for Blog ten year challenge today.

So, as blog ten year challenge, here is a song from “Santaan”(1959). The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kadam as a “aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Aangan”(1959) was directed by O P Datta. This movie had Rehman, Amita, Chand Usmani, Agha, Leela Mishra, Gulab, Badri Prasad, Indira Bansal, Ramavtar, Sabita Chatterji, Vijaybala, Jugnu, Kesarbai, Bazid Khan, Shantaram, Prijbhushan, Master Raja etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it that were penned by three lyricists.

Three songs have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Rajinder Krishanis the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song, which sounds like a mother child song to me.


Song-Ankhiyon mein basiyo Raaja dheere se hansiyo raaja (Aangan)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

ankhiyon mein basiyo raaja hoy hoy
dheere se hansiyo raaja hoy hoy
ankhiyon mein basiyo raaja
dheere se hansiyo raaja
ui
laage na najar kisi bairan ki
ho raaja laage na najar kisi bairan ki

do nainon ka bana jhoolna
aur palkon ki dori

“Keechak Vadh”(1959) was produced in Marathi and Hindi by Balasaheb (P K) Pathak and directed by Yeshwant Pethekar for Manik Studios, Bombay. The movie had Baburao Pendharkar (Keechak), Sumati Gupte (Draupadi), Shobhna Samarth (Sudeshna), Vishwas Kunte, Vimla Kumari, Helen etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it.Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Keechak Vadh”(1959) to appear in the song. The song is sung by Rafi, Lata and chorus. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Master Krishna Rao.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. From the sounds of it, this song could have been picturised on actors playing Arjun and Uttara, with Arjun teaching Uttara music under the disguise of Brihannala.

“Pyaar Ki Raahen”(1959) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Thakur Pictures Production, Bombay. The obscure movie had Pradeep Kumar, Anita Guha, Pran, Kuldeep Kaur,Helen, Sunder, Tiwari, Om Prakash, Jeevan, etc in it.

Here are the details of thismovie, as recounted by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia:

Kundanlal is a zamindar, who lives with his younger step brother Prakash(Pradeep Kumar), wife Gangajali(Kuldip Kaur) and Lali(Anita Guha), sister of Gangajali. This Gangajali hates Prakash and is opposed to his love with Lali. Finally, she is successful in driving him out of the house and the town. Then she fixes Lali’s marriage with Nandlal, the son Rajaram, a rich, but stingy man from Lucknow.

His elder son Amarnath is a TB patient. Inspite of the opposition of Kundanlal, Lali is ready to marry Nandlal. At the time of marriage, Rajaram brings Amarnath-TB patient as the bridegroom and Lali gets married unknowingly to Amarnath. When they return to Lucknow, Amar dies and Lali becomes widow. Rajaram puts the entire blame on Lali and starts torturing her like a mother-in-law. Despite all this Lali decides to stay there and look after that family. Slowly,Rajaram changes his mind about Lali, looking at her dutifulness and devotion to family.
Finally, Rajaram himself finds out Prakash and marries Lali off to him.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

a melancholic song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kanu Ghosh.

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


Song-Ham bhi is duniya mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain (Pyaar Ki Raahen)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Kanu Ghosh

Lyrics

hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
ik khushi maangi jo hamne saikado gham paaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
har tamanna har khushi ik ashq banke beh gai
kya thhikaana unka jo kismat ke hi thhukraaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
jee rahe hain is tarah jaise saza hai zindagi
kuchh na poochho is jahaan ne kaise din dikhlaaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya
