Today’s song is from an obscure film – ‘Jeb Katra’ aka ‘Pick Pocket’ aka ‘Girahkat’. The film may be obscure, but the song is extremely melodious and it is a pleasure to listen to such a song. I have liked it very much. The film was produced by actress-singer Brijmala’s home production Brij Prakash Productions. Looking at the cast of film and its director, it seems to be a stunt film. It was advertised as a Social Stunt film – whatever that means. To me it was like saying ‘a religious murder mystery film’ !

I have seen this film’s advertisements in the Jan and Feb 1946 issues of magazine Film India. In the Jan issue the lyricist is given as Shams Lucknowi and the composer as Bashir Khan Dehalvi. Next month – Feb – the ad says the lyricist is Ahsan Rizvi and MD is Nisar Bazmi.

The cast of the film was Navin Yagnik, Raj Rani, Samson, Ali, Radha, Habib, Sandow etc. The role of the ‘Pick Pocket’ was done by Samson, as mentioned on a photo of the film. The film was directed by Nari Ghadiyali- a veteran of C grade stunt films. Nari (Nariman) was a Parsee.

From the silent film era, Parsee community has been involved in film industry in different ways. In about every department of film making, there has been a Parsee, sometime somewhere. Parsee community is a very small entity. They never, even at their best times, exceeded a population of 3 lakhs in entire India. This is the only community which is truly a Minority community with just about 70000 people in entire India now. They have never ever asked for any reservation from the government. Parsees have significantly contributed to India’s industrial growth. Parsee greats like Tata, Godrej and Wadias have been extremely philanthropic too.

Parsees are mainly seen in Bombay and so it was no wonder that they joined the film industry, but a Parsee in Bengal has been a Pioneer in Cinema in the eastern India. JF Madon (1856 to 1923) had a roaring Parsee Theatre business in Bombay, but he shifted to Calcutta in 1902 and built an empire of Theatres and Cinema making. At one time the Madons had control on 127 Theatres in India. They made silent and talkie films in Bangla and Hindi. After his death, his third son JJ Madon took over. However, they closed their film business in 1937 and concentrated on their other interests like, imports, foods, pharma, insurance and real estate.

In Bombay, who can forget the contribution of Ardeshir Irani in starting the Talkie era with his ‘Alam Ara’ in 1931 ? In the early era, many Parsees contributed to Hindi cinema like Homi Master, Sohrab Modi, Sarswati Devi, JBH and Homi Wadia, John Cawas etc. In later period, the Irani sisters (Honey, Daisy and Manaka), Aruna Irani, Shammi, Fali Mistry and many others contributed. Earlier, in the field of direction, there were two well known names- Aspi (Aspinder) Irani and Nari (Nariman) Ghadiyali. Aspy Irani had married actress Husn Banu and Nari Ghadiyali had married actress Pramila. Both worked for stunt films made by another Parsee group – Wadia Brothers. Today’s film is also directed by Nari Ghadiyali. He directed 25 films, starting with ‘Jungle King’ (1939) to ‘Murad’ (1961).

The hero of film ‘Jeb Katra’ was Navin Yagnik, who was frequently seen in  C grade action/stunt films. Such films were made with tight budgets by small producers and hence the actors did not earn much money. To earn more money, their endeavour used to be to get roles in social films or films of other genres, especially made by well known production houses. Their payments were much better and also timely. Thus Navin also worked in some social films made by big banners.

As such stunt films declined in the latter half of the 50s, compared to 30s and 40s, as many producers like the Wadias, Mohan Pictures etc. shifted their focus to social films. Similarly major stunt film actors like Master Vithal, Master Bhagwan, Baburao Pehelwan, Azim Bhai etc. started getting roles in social films. Recently, I found a reference to Navin Yagnik in the autobiography of Hansa Wadkar- ‘Sangte Aika’ (‘सांगते ऐका’)  roughly translated as ‘Listen, I tell you’. In it she said. . . “My hero in this film was one Navin Yagnik, a handsome boy from UP. He was very shy and after the shootings, he would quietly sit in one corner reading something. He never joined our drink parties, nor he participated in any other group activity. I was attracted towards him but he gave no response. He sent me invitation card of his marriage, when it was fixed.’  Navin Yagnik (3-10-1912 to 28-10-1977) worked only in 30 films from film ‘The Mill’ (1934) to ‘Bhagwat Mahima’ (1955).

The MD for film ‘Jeb Katra’ was Nisar Bazmi. He was one of those musicians who migrated to Pakistan much later after the partition. There is a general perception among Indians that all those who migrated to Pakistan had a tough time there and they died in poverty. While this is true in cases of many actors and actresses, the converse is true about music composers.

Music directors who were worthless, unknown and unsuccessful, who gave music to obscure of B and C grade films here, in India, prospered very well in Pakistan. Composers like GA Chishti, Nisar Bazmi, Firoz Nizami, Tufail Faruqui, Rashid Atre, Inaayat Hussain, Fateh Ali Khan, Inaayat Nath, Khursheed Anwar were not very famous or popular in India, but in Pakistan almost every musician from India became famous, popular and successful. For example, Nisar Bazmi gave music to 40 films (only 27 released) in India. They were mostly C grade films and most songs were forgotten here. Same person, in Pakistan gave music to almost 60 films, won several awards and became famous and successful. How this happened ? What is the mystery ?

To understand this we must know what happened in Pakistan after partition and how was their film and music industry. According to an article in Wiki, since 1947, Pakistan film and music industry underwent several changes. It is worth repeating here. The period is divided as following,

‘Due to shortage of composers, all were welcomed with open arms. Those who had talents did extremely well here. Unfortunately the second generation of composers of calibre were not prepared and once these migrants disappeared from the scene, the musical fields of Pakistan dried up. According to  Wiki, there are 7 ages in Pakistan film music –

  1. Independence and growth – 1947-1958
  2. The Golden Age of Pak Film Music –  1959 – 1977
  3. The Age of Disaster – 1977 – 1988 (Onslaught of VCR and brain drain to Bangladesh in 1971)
  4. Politics, Islamisation and Downfall – 1979 – 1987
  5. Collapse – 1988 – 2002
  6. Decline – 2002 – 2009
  7. New Wave and Hope – 2010 onwards’

Anyway, Nisar Bazmi migrated to Pakistan during the Golden Age period and got all the benefits. Let us see what happened to Nisar Bazmi in Pakistan. His last film in India was ‘Mister Toofan’, released in 1963. Nisar migrated to Pakistan in 1962. Producer Sibtain Fazli of Fazli brothers offered him first film ‘Aisa Bhi Hota Hai’. The music of this film became hit and very popular and there was no looking back for Nisar Bazmi. He gave music to 57 Pak films. He won Nigar Awards 7 times and also won ‘Pride of Performance’ award from the President.

His last film was in 1981. He came back to Karachi and started teaching aspiring singers, but only one of them became a famous singer. He regretted that the younger generation looked for quick money and did not put hard work. None of his 8 sons loved music. They all followed different avocations. In his later life he was famous for learning Quran by heart.

Bazmi sahib taught music to up-and-coming youngsters, but only Faisal Latif managed to become somewhat popular. When asked why his students like Shafiq-ur-Rehman, Tanveer Afridi, Shabana and Shazia Kausar are unable to reach the top, he said, “My job was to train them, which I did. Now it is up to the musicians to utilize them as I am sure they have the talent to be the best.” When asked if the youth (of Pakistan) are going in the right direction, Bazmi Sb felt that it was because of our youths’ lack of interest that our music is not what it used to be. “A youngster today doesn’t want to be taught like the legendary singers. His only interest is to become rich and famous in a short time, which is certainly the wrong way.”

Nisar Bazmi died on 22-3-2007 at Karachi.

Today’s song from film ‘Jeb Katra’ is an exceptionally melodious song comparable to any leading composer’s song in India. With such tunes in his repertoire, I wonder why Nisar bazmi could not gain fame here itself. Usually when the film is a failure, the music of that film does not reach more audience and hence does not get exposure to become popular. Of course there are songs which became popular from flop films also. After all, it is a matter of luck only.

Song – Chaandni Raaten Kya Huin (Jeb Katra) (1946) Singer – Zohrabai Ambaalewali, Lyrics – Ahsaan Rizvi, MD – Nisar Bazmi

Lyrics

doobhar hui hai zindagi

Blog Day : 3804 Post No. : 14797

When we talk of Partition and Migration of artistes from India to Pakistan and vice versa, only the famous and the well known names are considered. There were hundreds of small time less known artists, viz. actors, directors, lyricists, composers, instrument players, chorus singers, technicians etc who also had migrated for various reasons. The other day I was reading a book, ” Who’s who: Music in Pakistan ” written by A.Shaikh and M.Shaikh. In this book I found several names of singers,composers,lyricists and above all instrument players, who shifted to Pakistan.

It is a well known fact that in olden times,the instrument players,chorus singers and orchestra players had personal attachments and preferences,for particular composers and vice versa too. That is why, when Ghulam Haider went back to Lahore,he was extremely happy to meet some of his orchestra players in Lahore. In one of the interviews he had said that he felt like a family reunion. He arranged a get together for all those people.

In the Hindi film industry,many Partition immigrants came to dominate and transform the scene here.Film makers like Pancholi, Sippy,B R Chopra,Yash Chopra,Ramanand Sagar-all India’s most successful commercial producers were also Partition immigrants. Once heavily dominated by Muslim Film makers,writers,actors and composers,the Hindi film industry changed drastically after the Partition.

Many successful film personalities had gone to Pakistan between 1947 and 1950,including producers like Mehboob and Shaukat Hussain Rizvi-who went to Lahore,with capital to buy the Hindu-owned studios. Prominent producers of Lahore like Dalsukh Pancholi and Shorey were forced to sell their studios and properties for a song and flee for their life,to India,after riots in Pakistan post Partition. Some Muslim artistes returned to India,after a few years when they realised that Lahore film industry had largely collapsed due to exodus of prominent Hindu producers.

The crucial role played by films in Indian culture could be seen in the Refugee camps of Delhi,where ever evening,for 2 hours Hindi films were shown free to all. ‘ Film India’ commented that there were more than 15000 refugees from Sindh and Punjab in Bombay.It also suggested that good looking and educated women can be employed in films.Due to polarisation,there was much explosive writing published in this magazine,that time.

However,as before and always, Bombay film industry maintained its secular culture and a big rally,led by Durga Khote and Prithviraj Kapoor was taken out on 2-10-1947,in Bombay. The entire film industry had joined in it and slogans like ‘Hindu-Muslim bhai bhai’ etc were shouted in the rally. Similarly,to pacify over one lakh refugees from East Pakistan (now Bangaladesh) in Calcutta, Lata Mangeshkar had led a rally in Calcutta during 1971.

The famous Music Historian James Mc Connachie said, ” As India marched into an uncertain future-in 1947-Film songs offered something Unique: they helped creating a sense of belonging to One Nation,something that the divisive extremist right wingers in India,chanting” Hindustan for Hindus” could never achieve. When Hindi film singers sang,nobody cared that Mohd.Rafi was a Muslim or Lata was a Hindu Brahmin. Its great music bridged the gap between Hindus and Muslims,mush better than any Politician (including Gandhi and Nehru) ever could achieve.” -World Music-The rough guide,Vol II,pp 106,pub.1990 by Harper.

Like many top class composers who migrated to Pakistan, there were some small time or recently started composers who also left, like Inayat Hussain (only 1 Punjabi film Kamli),Fateh ali khan (2 films,Aaina-44 and Director-47),Tufail farooqi (2 films-Sona Chandi-46 and Dekhojee-47). Inayat Hussai of course became a Legend in Pakistan.

Today’s song is from film Aaina-1944. Its music directors were Gulshan Sufi and Fateh Ali Khan. Fateh ali khan migrated to Pakistan after Partition and Gulshan Sufi went after mid 50s.

Fateh Ali Khan was a classical singer and a Qawwali musician in the 1940s and 1950s. He was born in Jalandhar, Punjab, British India in 1901. Fateh Ali Khan was the father of Pakistani Qawwali musicians, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Farrukh Fateh Ali Khan. Their family had an unbroken tradition of Qawwali, linked closely to the Sufi Chishti Order for over 600 years. Fateh Ali Khan was trained in classical music and Qawwali by his father, Maula Baksh Khan (Ali Khan), and he, soon after his training, distinguished himself as a skilled vocalist and instrumentalist. He learned to play traditional Indian instruments such as sitar, sarod and vichitra veena as well as Western instruments like the violin. He also mastered thousands of verses in Punjabi, Urdu, Arabic and Persian.

Fateh Ali Khan was the leader of his family’s Qawwali party but they were billed as Fateh Ali Khan, Mubarak Ali Khan & Party. Mubarak Ali Khan, his brother, shared both singing and harmonium-playing duties with him. They were regarded as among the foremost exponents of Qawwali in their time. They are credited with popularizing the poetry of Allama Iqbal through their singing. Iqbal’s poetry was regarded as difficult to set musical tunes to, and while he was highly admired in academic circles and by intellectuals, Allama Iqbal did not have much of a popular following yet among the common people mainly due to the radio broadcasting technology still under development back then in British India. Fateh Ali Khan and Mubarak Ali Khan, more than anyone else, helped Iqbal achieve popular success as well: Allama Iqbal paid the ultimate homage to the two brothers by saying: ‘I was restricted to schools and colleges only. You (Ustad Fateh Ali Khan) have spread my poetry through India’.

Like many other musicians,Fateh ali khan too wanted to try his hand at Film music. In India,he gave music only to 2 films, that too with other composers. One was film Aaina-1944, along with Gulshan Sufi and the other was film Director-1947, along with Lachhiram Tamar. After partition he migrated to Pakistan with all his family. In Pakistan, however, he had better luck in films. He gave music to Do kinare-50, Harjaai-52, Shola-52, Bedari-57 ( ditto copy of our film Jagriti-1954), Saathi-59 and Tum na maano-61. He also sang in film Waada-57 and Raagini-58. Ustad Fateh Ali Khan was the foremost sitar-player and film music composer of the 1950’s in Pakistan.His compositions in Bedari (1957)became run-away super-hits in Pakistan because they were a heart-felt tribute to the founder of Pakistan, Mohammad Ali Jinnah, and the public’s sentiments about patriotism.

In 1948, his son, Nusrat, was born in Faisalabad, Pakistan. Fateh Ali Khan wanted Nusrat to become a doctor or an engineer because he felt Qawwali artists had low social status. However, Nusrat showed such interest in and aptitude for Qawwali that his father soon relented, and began training him. However, Fateh Ali Khan died in 1964 at the age of sixty-three, when Nusrat was sixteen and still in school. Nusrat’s training was completed by Fateh Ali Khan’s brothers, Mubarak Ali Khan and Salamat Ali Khan. (information adapted from wiki, Harish Raghuwanshi ji, pakfilms.net and my notes).

The cast of the film Aaina-41 consisted of Husn Banu, Yakub, Trilok kapoor, Yashodhara katju, Rajkumari Shukla, Gope etc etc. The film had two Lyricists- Pt. Phani and Tanvir Naqvi. ( Naqvi had also migrated to Pakistan). The film was directed by S.M. Yusuf. Even he had migrated to Pakistan.

S.M.Yusuf – Shaikh Mohammed Yousuf, (20-6-1910 at Poona to 17-8-1994 at Lahore) was originally from U.P. and started his career by assisting directors in various studios. He was one cine artist who migrated to Pakistan and became a very successful director there too. Actress Nigar Sultana was his second wife for 5 years.

After Partition,several artistes-heroes,heroines,Directors,Comedians,lyricists,Composers, Singers and character artistes migrated to Pakistan. Almost 90% of them failed there miserably. Some of them like Meena Shorey shone for a while but ended up in penury and anonymity. Exceptions were like Malika -e-Tarannum Noorjahan. from the successful artistes,the major chunk was musicians-composers like Khurshid Anwar,Nissar Bazmi, Nashad etc. Among the directors. S M Yusuf was the exception who succeeded. The migration of Cine artistes continued till 1965,when President General Ayub Khan banned Indian actors. Shaikh Mukhtar-1963 and Kumar-64 were probably the last to migrate to Pakistan. Till then some artistes like Sheila Ramani,Nasir Khan,pran,Manorama,composer Timir Baran etc went and worked in Pakistani films.

S.M.Yusuf started directing films in India from Bharat ke Laal-36. He directed 20 films like,Darban, Aaina, grihasthi, Saheli, Mehendi,GuruGhantal, Bahurani, Maalik, Gujara, Hyderabad ki Nazneen, Bikhre Moti etc.

When he went to Pakistan,in late 50s,he made his first film there Saheli,which was a ditto remake of his own Hindi film- Mehendi-1950. This film Saheli became such a great hit that it virtually grabbed all major awards including a Nigar award for S M Yusuf himself. He made about 13 films in Pakistan,before he died on 17-8-1994,at Lahore,from where he had begun his career !

Film Aaina-44 was a social film. It depicted a family, in which the mother in law, due to her short temper, querulous and quarrelsome nature almost destroys her happy family. She has 2 existing daughters in law who are submissive. The third daughter in law is different. Initially she tolerates mother in law’s tantrums,but later on she teaches her a lesson and brings peace and happiness back to the family. This type of stories were abundant in the 70s and 80s in Bollywood. Title Aaina was used in 1944,1977, 1993 and 2014 also.

Film Aaina-44 had 8 songs. 7 songs were already covered. Today’s song is the 8th and the final song of the film. So, film Aaina-44 joins those films which have ALL songs covered.

“Bela” (1947) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The story, screenplay, dialogues and Lyrics of this movie were by D N Madhok. The movie had P Jairaj, Nigar Sultana, Shrinath Tripathi, Pt.Iqbal, Krisnakumari, Master Mehmood, Rekha, Usha, B.R.Sharma etc. in it.

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

Here is the eighth song from the movie. This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Zohrabai Ambalewaali sang most female playback songs in the movie, my guess is that she sang for the leading lady and so this song is picturised on the leading lady viz Nigar Sultana.


Song-Pardesi piya re ho ab mose na guzre rain(Bela)(1947) Singer-Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

wo kaali kaali badli mohe chhed gayi
kaa se kahoon jee ki baat

more barsan laage donon nain
pardesi piya re

tu nahin to kuchh bhi nahin een
mere bas mein ho chura loon tora chain
mere bas mein ho chura loon tora chain
pardesi piya re
ho ab mose na guzre rain

“Mera Geet”(1946), a social movie, was directed by Shanti Kumar for Jayshakti Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Naseem Junior, Susheel Kumar, Leela Pawar, Vikram Kapoor, Mehndi Raja, Bholaram, Kashinath, Chiman Seth, Baby Tara, Shalini, Nalini, Heera Date, Chandrika, Om Prakash Sharma, Mukri, Aathwale etc in it.

This movie had sixteen obscure songs in it that were composed by five music directors. HFGK does not have details of singers for any of these songs,while music directors are known only for three of these songs.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past and we have been able to identify the singers of those songs. Here is the second song from “Mera Geet”(1946) to appear in the blog. Though the singer is not mentioned in HFGK, it is clear that this song is sung by Zohranbai Ambalewaali. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist of this song. Music is composed by someone called Ghulam Miyaan.

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

I have not been able to get a word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

“Bela” (1947) was directed by Chaturbhuj Doshi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The story, screenplay, dialogues and Lyrics of this movie were by D N Madhok. The movie had P Jairaj, Nigar Sultana, Shrinath Tripathi, Pt.Iqbal, Krisnakumari, Master Mehmood, Rekha, Usha, B.R.Sharma etc. in it.

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

Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song, a philosophical cum pathos filled separation song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

It is an obscure never heard song, but it sounds like it was a gem that stayed undiscovered all these years. I feel that this song should qualify as one of the best lyrics penned by D N Madhok in his career.
