“Shrawan Kumar”(1960) was produced by Ramubhai Desai and directed by Sharad Desai for Prabha Pictures, Bombay. This mythological movie had Nalini Chonkar, Anant Kumar, Achala, S K prem, Sundar, B M Vyas, Yashodhara Katju, Chaand Burque, Polson, Dabboo, Daya Devi, Kesari, Fazlu, C J Pandey, Kesarbai, V Prem, Premlata, Premi, Radheshyam, Baby Rukhsana, Cuckoo, Madhumati, Raj Prakash etc in it.

The movie, obviously based on the tale of Shrawan Kumar, had ten songs in it. Shrawan Kumar was a contemporay of Lord Ram and his mention is found in Ramayan.

Movies like this aimed to make its audience watch the movie and cry, witnessing the hardships faced by the protagonist. The movie had several songs that are heavy duty listening for me (preachy songs/ tragic songs etc).

Thankfully, there are a few songs that spare us that agony. I have chosen one such song here.

This song is a “missing the beloved” song which is sung by Lata. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shivram.

The song is picturised on a lady whom I am unable to identify. I request our knowledgeable readers ti help identify her.
PS-She is Nalini Chonkar. I thank our knowledgeable reader Mr Suresh Patil for helping to identify her.

With this song, “Shrawan Kumar”(1960) makes its debut in the blog. As many as 111 Hindi movies were released in 1960. “Shrawan Kumar”(1960) becomes the 100th movie to 1960 to find representation in the blog. So with this song, we achieve yet another artificially made up but nevertheless a significant century in the blog.


Song-Tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre (Shrawan Kumar)(1960) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Shivram

Lyrics

tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre
do naina bhaye more baawre
tujhe khoj khoj main haari
ab thhakne lage more paanv re
tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre ae

tum bin ye jag kaara hai
chaaron taraf andhiyaara hai
o o o o
o o o o
aaj thhaki
man haara hai
kitni door kinaara hai
ho kinaara hai
doley jeevan ki dagmag naav re
naiyya ke khiwaiyya aao re
tujhe khoj khoj main haari
ab thhakne lage more paanv re
tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre
ho saanwre
ho saanwre

tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre
do naina bhaye more baawre
tujhe khoj khoj main haari
ab thhakne lage more paanv re
tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre ae

laakh tumhen hoon bisraati
phir bhi bhool nahin paati
o o o o
o o o o
bichhad gaya jeevan saathi
tel bina jalti baati
jalti baati
aankhon se tera algaav re
hai man mein chhupa ek ghaav re
tujhe khoj khoj main haari
ab thhakne lage more paanv re
tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre ae

dheere dheere saanjh dhale
ruk ruk meri saans chale
o o aa aa
o o aa aa
dhoondhh thhaki par tum na miley
man tadpe mere praan jaley
mere praan jaley
badi door door tera gaanv re
tere paanv ki deekhe na chaanv re
tujhe khoj khoj main haari
ab thhakne lage morey paanv re
tum kahaan chhupe ho saanwre
ho saanwre
ho saanwre

“Halla Gulla” (1954) was produced and directed by Bhagwan for Bhagwan Art Productions, Bombay. The movie had Bhagwan, Shakila, Sajjan, Baburao, Leela Gupte, Leela Gandhi , Begam Bai, Suneeta, Salvi, Qamar, Sukumar, Bhagwan Rao “Aankh”, Balaram, Deepak, Yashwant, Swami etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. All these nine songs were Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duets ! This must be a record of sorts where all songs of a movie are duets and are sung by the same pair of singers.

It would seem that Bhagwan had lip synced in Rafi’s voice. The actress lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice could be either Shakeela or Leela Gandhi or Leela Gupte. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Saba Afghani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Nisaar Baazmi.


Song-Yoon na chhedo balam koi na aa jaaye (Halla Gulla)(1954) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Rafi, Lyrics-Saba Afghani, MD-Nisar Bazmi

Lyrics

yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye
tumko nahin sharam
tumko nahin sharam
mohe laaj aaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

ek to sataaye mohe bairi hawaayen
aanchal udaayen kabhi laten bikhraayen
ek to sataaye mohe bairi hawaayen
aanchal udaayen kabhi laten bikhraayen
dooje tum to piya
mohe na sataao piya
mohe na sataao
tumko to aaye maza
mora jiya jaaye
ho mora jiya jaaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

ghoonghat se roop gori tera pukaare
naina bulaayen tere kar ke ishaare
ghoonghat se roop gori tera pukaare
naina bulaayen tere kar ke ishaare
ye sharmeeli ada
kise na lubhaaye bata
kise na lubhaaye
aise mein door bhala
kaise raha jaaye
ho kaise raha jaaye

yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

kyun aaj pyaar bhari karte ho baaten
samjhi main khoob sajan tumhri ye ghaaten
kyun aaj pyaar bhari karte ho baaten
samjhi main khoob sajan tumhri ye ghaaten
dekho mori kasam
aise na banaao mohe
aise na banaao
kar doongi shor abhi
paas jo tum aaye
ho paas jo tum aaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye
yoon na chhedo balam
koi na aa jaaye

“Shagoofa”(1953) was produced under the banner of P N Films ( Premnath’s home production) and it was directed by H S Rawail. The movie had Premnath, Beena Rai, Bipin Gupta, Sundar, Purnima, Yashodara Katju, Baby Naaz etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog in the past. Here is the fifth song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Sundar and Geeta Dutt. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. This light hearted romantic song is a parody of the well known song-“Maine laakhon ke bol sahe sanwariya tere liye ” from “Leela”(1947), which was also composed by C Ramchandra.

This song was clearly picturised on Sundar and a lady playing his romantic angle in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this lady.

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

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Wishing all a very Happy 70th INDEPENDENCE DAY. We step into our 71st year of Independence.

As children, we have been inculcated with a sense of patriotism. My school had a practice of hoisting the National Flag at a particular hour. Later in my life I was given to understand that this practise is governed by the hour the flag is hoisted in the nation’s capital Delhi- it seems that the flag has to be hoisted first in Delhi at the Red Fort and then the nation follows. I would love to know if what I learnt is right or wrong.

Coming back to the way it was celebrated in my school; after the flag was hoisted there would be a round of speeches mostly by the principal of the school and then a few students would read out their speeches. In the run, up to 15th August each student who desired to readout a speech had to show it to their teachers, get the contents approved, rectified or corrected for grammar and preferably get the speech by-heart before the important date. I distinctly remember having done this till I was in class 8 or 9. I also recollect that most of the speeches ran a similar thread wherein people listed out all our great leaders who featured in our history text books. The list normally started with Shivaji Maharaj & Rana Pratap; went on to include Bapu, Chacha Nehru, Dadabhai Naoroji, Sardar Patel, Netaji etc. (Avinash ji’s post on 9th August reminded me of this part of school speeches). Almost all the speeches would end with the thought that we will grow up and work towards making India proud of us. There would usually be around 10 student speech-givers (one from each class) and the ceremony would be concluded with distribution of chocolates – as we grew up the orange sugar candy also changed to Cadbury eclairs. I would like to know if India is really proud of us.

Later in my life, when my children were in school, I have been an audience to the celebrations there. I have seen the children dance to the various patriotic songs that Bollywood has to offer. In fact just a few days back our Avinash ji discovered that the list on the right side of our blog showing TOP POSTS featured all the top patriotic songs of Bollywood. To this our Peevesie enlightened us that it must be the schools searching for patriotic songs to perform & Atul ji also confirmed that this was a yearly occurrence.

I also remembered a song which was quite popular during my children’s school days, I don’t remember, though, whether either of them performed this at any of the celebrations in their school. The song is written by Prasoon Joshi, Jatin-Lalit are the music directors & Mahalakshmi Iyer has sung it in the Kunal Kohli directed 2006 release -‘Fanaa’. The movie featured Kajol- Amir Khan- Rishi Kapoor etc. It was a primarily a story of a terrorist who walks in and out of a blind girl’s life. They fall in love, she is made to believe that he (a tour guide) has died in a bomb-blast, she manages to get her eyesight through operation or eye transplant (one of the two) and then he walks back into her life -this time as a wounded combat army officer. She doesn’t know it is her lover or her son’s father as she only has heard and felt him (she was blind remember?). She nurses him back to health and in the time spent doing this she discovers that he is after all her lover, husband, father of her son and also (most importantly) he is not an army officer but a hard-hearted terrorist. She calls up the ATS (anti-terrorist squad) and also guns him down as he makes a bid to escape.  This was the gist of ‘Fanaa’.

Let us now have the song from the movie. It talks of the unity in diversity aspect of our country, something I myself am proud of. Our country never ceases to amaze me, it wouldn’t be wrong if I say that Prasoon Joshi has written out my feelings only. Thank You so much Prasoon Joshi.

Bharat Mata Ki Jai! Long Live our Independence!

Mukesh and his Composers – 14
——————————————–

As we celebrate seven decades of freedom, patriotic songs continue to eulogize the glories of our nation. These songs have always had a special place in the hearts of all Indians. During the good old days of DD, many such songs were played throughout the day on such occasions. One of the very common songs that was invariably played was the Mukesh number “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten” from the film ‘Hum Hindustani’ (1960). Coming from the baton of Usha Khanna in her second film as a composer, the song was sung with much gusto by Mukesh. The other famous song by Mukesh in this genre is obviously the title song from ‘Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960).

However a lesser known fact is that Mukesh sang nearly 20 film and non-film patriotic songs. The very first duet that Mukesh sang with Lata Mangeshkar – “Ab Darne Ki Koi Baat Nahin Hai” (from ‘Majboor’, 1948) as well as GeetaDutt – “Watan Ki Maati Haath Mein Le Kar” (from ‘Gaon’, 1947), are both patriotic songs.

Amongst his other patriotic songs, Atulji posted “Na Koi Raha Hai Na Koi Rahege” (from ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’, 1965) a few weeks back.

The iconic song “Mera Rang De Basanti Chola” has been sung by many singers at different times. Mukesh too is involved in one of the versions from the film Shaheed (1965) which he sings along with Mahendra Kapoor, and Rajendra Mehta.

There are about a dozen more songs of Mukesh in the patriotic category and quite a few of them are yet to be posted. Since the list may not be complete and also as the other songs are not too well known, I will desist myself from making a list of all his patriotic songs at this stage.

However, as a regular feature in this series, a tabular column is always in order. Following is the list of the songs composed by Ram Ganguly, and sung by Mukesh.

S.No Name of Song Movie
(Year of release)
Co singer
(if any)
Lyricist
1 Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji Aag (1948) Shamshad Begum Majrooh Sultanpuri
2 Rab mere araj sun meri Aag (1948) Sailesh Mukherji Saraswati Kumar Deepak
3 Zinda hoon is tarah Aag (1948) Behzad Lucknowi
4 Aazad ho gaya Jalsa (1948) Ramesh Gupta

Aag (1948). As we are all well aware, this was the directorial debut of Raj Kapoor and Ram Ganguly had scored the music for the film. Some misunderstanding between the director and the composer resulted in a phenomenon called Shanker-Jaikishen. Rest as they say, is history.

Personally, for me, the music of ‘Aag’ is altogether on a different platform. There is something captivating in the compositions. I often listen to the songs from this movie, each time savouring the music.

The career of Ram Ganguly after ‘Aag’ was not a smooth ride. There were hardly any films that were musically successful. I was wondering if any of our more knowledgeable contributors have written a post on the life and career of the composer. And as expected, I found this post, aptly written by one of the most suitable persons to do so.

The two most famous songs of Ram Ganguly after his ‘Aag’ score are probably from ‘Gawaiyya’ (1954). The songs Aise Toote Taar Ke Mere Geet Adhoore Reh Gaye and Teri Yaad Ka Deepak Jaltaa Hai, once again bring to mind the velvet voiced memories of Talat Mehmood.

Coming to this post and the song in particular, it is a recently discovered song as it is not listed in Mukesh Geet Kosh. It is listed in the main Hindi Film Geet Kosh, but at the time of publication of volume 2 of HFGK, the detailed information of this song was not available. A patriotic song sung by Mukesh along with chorus, the song was recorded for ‘Jalsa’ (1948). From the Geet Kosh listings, it seems that a song with the same or a similar title is also included in the film ‘Desh Sewa’, also from 1948. I request for more clarifications and details about this re-use of the song by more knowledgeable readers.

It seems Ram Ganguly too did not use the voice of Mukesh in any of his films after ‘Jalsa’. The tally stands at 04 as listed above. There are some 18 songs in Jalsa (1948). One song has already been represented on the blog. It will be nothing short of a miracle if any of the remaining songs from Jalsa have the voice of Mukesh as he was one of the most sought-after playback singers during the time.

I thank Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji for helping me with confirming with the short list of all Mukesh songs under Ram Ganguly.

Before, I conclude the post; I just want to inform readers that the next post will be in my other series, with another recently discovered song, the hint as regards to the co-singer being “what will happen now”.

I take this opportunity to wish one and all, a very happy independence day.

Jai Hind.

Song – Azaad Ho Gaya Hai Hindostaan Hamaara  (Jalsa) (1948) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Ramesh Gupta, MD – Ram Ganguly

Today (15 august 2017) is the 71st Independence day of India.

This is the tenth independence day for the blog. In addition, we have also had nine republic days. We have discussed a few patriotic songs on all these 17 national days. So one can imagine the number of patriotic songs that we have covered in the blog so far. The count of patriotic songs in the blog shows 106 songs as of now !

While discussing songs from movies, we sometimes come across special songs that are suitable songs for special occasions. Same was the case with this song from “Samundar” (1957). In my bid to cover all the eight songs from the movie, seven songs have been covered. The eighth song was deferred to be covered on Indepence day because it is suitable song for such an occasion.

“Samundar” (1957) was produced and directed by Premnath for Premnath Films. The movie was an all family affair. Premnath, Bina Rai (his wife), Rajendranath (his brother) figured in the movie. Others in the cast were Nishi, Tuntun, Anmol Krishan, Ram Avtar, Ullas, Heeralal, Sundar, Ridkoo, Paul Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Azeem, Mahesh, Manohar, Niranjan etc.

Here is this eighth and final song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt, Rafi and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The song is picturised as a “ship” song populated by seafaring sailors led by Premnath. Premnath sings in Rafi’s voice. I am unable to identify the person who lip syncs in Geeta Dutt’s voice. In any case, Geeta Dutt’s voice is mainly heard alongwith the chorus in this song.

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

With this song, “Samundar”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all our readers. May the 70th Anniversary of India’s Independence bring happiness, prosperity and peace to people of this great nation.

On this occasion, I present to you a Marching Patriotic song, in praise of the Motherland, from the film ‘Sipahsalaar’ (1956). Sipahsalaar means Chief of Army or Commandant . The name of this film is not well known because the lead actor,the composer or the director were not famous at that time. I said ‘ that time ‘ because in the next one year, this film’s hero – Shammi Kapoor would come in a complete makeover of appearance (without his funny unbecoming moustache) and style of acting with the film ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957). Later on, he wrote a glorious chapter in the history of Indian cinema.

Nadira, the heroine in this film, had become an overnight glittering star with her very first film ‘Aan’ (1952). However, this good luck slowly but surely diminished over next few years and she ended up doing side and character roles.

Born as a Baghdadi Jew, on 5-12-1932, with a name of Farhat Khatoon Ezekiel, her mother was Iraqi and father was Egyptian. She was the only girl in the family. She had 2 brothers. First she wanted to become a nun and then a doctor, but financial difficulties forced her to learn shorthand and typing. Being attractive, she had many boy friends. One day, along with her boy friend, she went for a party of film world. Kardar, Mehboob, SU Sunny etc. were present there and naturally they were impressed with her good looks and sophistication. Mehboob Khan was the first to contact her and sign a contract with her for Rs. 1200 p.m.

For first 3 months, there was no work, except watching the shooting daily and learning things. She did not get her pay, as she did not ask for it. When Mehboob came to know, she was given Rs 3600 all at one time. 65 years ago, this was a big amount !

Her first film ‘Aan’ became a hit. In her second film ‘Naghma’ (1953), she fell in love with the Producer / Director / Lyricist Nakshab Jarachavi, and they got married. Unfortunately, she could not tolerate his narrow minded restrictions on her social life and the marriage broke within 2 years. Then she married a non filmi person, but this marriage too broke very soon. After these two failed alliances, she remained single forever. Nadira worked with Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok kumar, Raaj kumar, Talat mehmood and almost every known actor of that era. She was the first actress to own a Rolls Royce car in Bombay. But later on she worked even in B and C grade films to survive. She won a Filmfare award for her role in film ‘ Julie ‘ (1975).

She acted in 92 films. Her last released film was ‘Josh’ (2000). Her last days were spent in illness and in the company of friends like Nirupa Roy, Nimmi and Shyama. She died on 9-2-2006. Her last rites were done as per Hindu customs, because that was her last wish.

The composer of this film is Iqbal, who has often been mistaken for more famous composer Iqbal Qureshi. While Iqbal Qureshi’s career spanned the years 1958 to 1991,  Iqbal (Mohammed Iqbal), operated between 1953 to 1975. This Iqbal was known as ‘Chhota Iqbal’, probably based on the heights of these two Iqbals. Iqbal Qureshi was more than 6 feet tall.

He started his career with ‘Malika Saloni’ (1953). He gave music to 21 films and 2 unreleased films. His films are –

Malika Saloni (1953)
Jaadugar (1954)
Jaasoos (1955)
Sakhi lutera (1955)
Anokha Jungle (1956)
Sipah Salaar (1956)
Gypsy (1957)
Chetak aur Rana Pratap (1958)
Black Mailer (1959)
Hero No. 1 (1959)
Toofani Teerandaz (1959)
Wrong Number (1959)
Diler Haseena (1960)
Gun Fight (1960)
Jaalim Jaadugar (1960)
Night Bird (1961)
Toofani Tarzan (1962)
Kaala Jaadu (1963)
Black Arrow (1965)
Fauladi Mukka (1965)
Agent 302 (1963)
Unreleased – Gypsy (1960s) and Raajkumar Sooraj (1970s)

Iqbal never compromised on quality singers and used Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Asha, Khan Mastana, Meena Kapoor, Madhubala Zaveri, Mubarak Begum, Mahendra Kapoor, Ismail Azad Qawwal, Talat Mehmood, S Balbir, Minu Purushottam, Chandbala etc. His songs do not include, possibly, any Lata number.

After films, he composed several Muslim devotionals with Mukesh and few ghazals with Shailendra Singh. His composition “Dil Ne Chheda Hai Taraana” from film ‘Sipahsalaar’ – a Talat-Asha duet, is included by HMV in their Classic selection.

With all this, Iqbal remained a small time composer, an action film music director, unlike his same name counterpart who bathed in the glory of hit songs. Iqbal’s only hit film,’Sipahsalaar’ is also invariably included in Iqbal Qureshi’s filmography, which is injustice to poor Iqbal !

‘Sipahsalaar’ is an Eagle Films, Bombay presentation by its owner FC Mehra. This was quite an entertaining costume drama wherein Shammi Kapoor donned the cowboy dress for a major part of the film. Unfortunately all the prints of this film were destroyed in a fire and today, the film is not available anywhere. Shammi Kapoor always regretted that he did not keep a copy of this film with him.

I have seen the film. Since I find that many people are curious about this film, based on my notes I give herewith a short synopsis of the film. If you are unable to see the film, at least here is some information about it.

It is an Eagle Films presentation, produced by FC Mehra and directed by Mohd. Hussain ( 25-2-1918 to 25-7-1980, total films 39) who also wrote its story, screenplay and dialogues as well. Music was by Iqbal with lyrics from Farooque Qaiser.

The evil Vazir of Bharatpur (Randhir) ousts the good king (Uma Dutt) and captures the throne. The good but helpless king escapes to another country. However his loyal, trustworthy and brave Sipahsalaar (S Nazir) goes underground and continues guerrilla fighting with the Vazir.

The king wants to send a plan to recapture his kingdom to his Sipahsalaar. For this purpose he chooses Captain Shyam (Shammi Kapoor). He is ready to undertake this dangerous mission. Disguised as a truck driver, the Captain starts his journey, but is recognised and stopped by a major (Shyam Kumar) at the border. At this time a mysterious, beautiful patriot girl Radha (Nadira) saves him and both escape in the jungle.

Hereafter the film depicts many adventures, jungle scenes and moments of love between Shammi Kapoor and Nadira, including some songs.

They finally reach Sipahsalaar, and deliver the message. However while regaining the kingdom, there is a battle and the Sipahsalaar sacrifices his life for the king.

As far as today’s song is concerned, it seems there is also a second part of this song, which was only in the film and no record was ever made. The second part was played in the background at the last scene when the Sipahsalaar dies in the battle, after regaining the kingdom for the ousted king.

This is a fitting song for today’s occasion. Let us enjoy it……

Today (15 august 2017) is the 71st independence day of India.

This is the 10st independence day for this blog. We have discussed all well known independence day songs during the past occasions. But no, we have not run out of songs for the occasions. We still have quite a few such songs up our sleeve.

Some of these songs are rare songs and most music lovers will hear them for the first time.

“Aahuti”(1950) also known as “Anokhi Qurbaani” was directed by Kulbhushan for Sansaar Movietone Limited, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjeet Kumari, sapru, Premkant, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Cuckoo, Nautiyal, Sudhir, Pitu, Khan Chaand, Mukul, Ratan Gaurang, Bhajanlal, Shyama, Krishna Rani, Neelam, Indra, Indubala, Uma, Gulnar Shirazi, Kathana etc in it.

This social movie had twelve songs in it, and they are as obscure as the movie itself.

Two songs from “Aahuti”(1950) have been covered in the past. While going through the other songs of the movie, I came across this patriaotic Aazaadi song from the movie and kept it in hold to be discussed during the independence day.

HFGK mentions this song as sung by Geeta Roy and chorus. On listening t the song, I feel that this song has two male voices as well, which are that of S D Batish annd Shankar Das Gupta, apart from chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to help confirm/ refute my identification of the male voices.

Tandon is the lyricist. Music is composed by D C Dutt.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keene eras to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as aplicable.

I take this opportunity to greet one and all and wish them a very happy independence day.

Today’s Shiv Bhajan is for the 4th Shraavan Monday – as celebrated in south, west and some eastern states of India. This bhajan is from film ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953), made by Chandrakala Pictures and is produced and directed by Dhirubhai Desai. The lead actors were Anjali Devi (from south) and Bharat Bhushan. In the cast of this film, you will find a name Rajkumar. Most ‘knowledgeable’ sites and writers treat this actor same as the famous dialogue master Raaj Kumar ‘Jaani’. However, this is not correct. This Rajkumar is different.

The pathetically poor documentation of the history of Hindi films has left many gaping holes. One of these is the menace of ‘Same Name Confusions’. Actors, directors and composers having similar names are the victims as well as the sufferers of this phenomenon. When artistes active around the same time share the same names, their filmography is often overlapped and intermixed. The sufferer is usually the lesser known person amongst the group of same name persons. Their hard work is credited unceremoniously to the more famous and well known person of the same name. In my earlier posts, I have dwelt upon this subject in details. Additionally, I ran a 3 part article series “Same Name Confusions”, which has become a reference point at www.anmolfankaar.com

The case of multiple Raj Kumars, however, could not be solved due to its cluelessness. Fortunately, the blog www.maitrimanthan.wordpress.com took it up as a project and spent considerable time and efforts to collect some information in this case. (They had also done this for Sr and Jr Shashi kapoors. May God bless these blog girls !).

There were in all 5 Raj Kumars in the industry at the same time. The first was the Kannada Hero Dr. Rajkumar. However, he never worked in any Hindi film, so no confusion about him.The second was the famous dialogue master Raaj Kumar ‘Jaani’. Third was Rajkumar Gupta (from Ranchi), who was the main character in popular film ‘Jagriti’ (1954). He never worked again in any film. Fourth was Raj(u) Kumar, a junior artist, who did minor roles, that were mostly uncredited, in films like ‘Shri 420’ (1955), ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956), ‘Dilli Ka Thug’ (1958), ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963), ‘Ziddi’ (1964) etc. The fifth was this Rajkumar, who mostly worked in religious and mythological films. His full name was Rajkumar Khatri.

Rajkumar Khatri was born in or around 1940. He started as a child artiste in films like ‘Janmashtami’ (1950), ‘Jai Mahakaali’ (1951) and ‘Insaan’ (1952). His first film as an adult was ‘Shuk Rambha’ (1953), in which he did the role of young Shukdev. He was a fine actor, not extraordinary, but there was something special about his screen presence. Apart from his boyish looks, he had an unspoken charm and emanated an inherent goodness. In his second film ‘Tulsidas’ (1954) he did the role of Shri Ram. He was hardly 15-16 year old then. This must be the youngest and most boyish looking Shri Ram ever seen on the screen !

Rajkumar Khatri acted in 61 films, mostly religious and mythological films (47 to be precise). Not that he did not work in any social films, but such films were less. He was seen in films like ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963), ‘Ustadon Ke Ustad’ (1963), ‘Ziddi’ (1964), ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965) etc. Due to his boyish face and young innocent looks, he was generally given roles of the younger brother. As Laxman, he acted in 7 films. His last film was probably ‘Chintamani Soordas’ (1987).

In mid 1980s, when films offers became scarce, he joined Prakash Mehra as an assistant. He used to live in Chembur. He was known as Chhota Rajkumar in the industry. He worked with Prakash Mehra for a long time, as Assistant Director and also as his PA. Reportedly, he died in September 2014. No further information on him is available.

Today’s Shiv Bhajan is from an obscure film ‘Shuk Rambha’. In the period from 1951 to 1960, so many religious and mythological films were made that at times there was a shortage of appealing stories. Popular stories from the Ramayana and Mahabharat epics, were exhausted beyond revival and it was not prudent to repeat them frequently. In this period, Nirupa Roy and Trilok Kapoor, probably were the busiest stars. Besides the usual popular stories, producers made films on rare subjects like Shanidev, Nal-Damayanti, Kach Devyani, Ekadashi, Navnaths, Kaali, Laxmi, Vikram and Vetal etc.

Producer-director Shri Dhirubhai Desai took up a totally unknown and obscure topic from the Vedic ‘Shuk Rambha Samvaad’. I appreciate his guts. I did not see this film and I do not know how many people must have seen this ‘never heard’ type of film. The cast of the film included Bharat Bhushan who had become famous after the blockbuster film ‘Baiju Bawra’ in 1952. Anjali Devi from south was his heroine. There were the other usual artistes of this genre like Lalita Pawar, Krishnakumari, Niranjan Sharma, Tiwari, Kusum Thakur etc. The role of young Shukdev was performed by Raajkumar.

Normally, not many people would know who was Shuk. Of course everybody would know about Rambha, that she was an ‘apsara‘ like Menaka and Urvashi etc. Rishi Shuk or Shukdev has an interesting story about his birth. Once Devi Paarvati wanted to know the secret of being Amar or immortal. Only Shiv ji knew about it. When she was after him to know the secret, he agreed to tell her. While Shiv ji was explaining the details, Paarvati went to sleep, but a bird – Shuk (Parrot), sitting on a tree branch outside listened to all the details. When Shiv ji realised this, the bird flew away in fear, and landed straight into the yawning open mouth of the wife of Maharshi Ved Vyas. It remained there safe for 12 years and then took birth. He was named Shuk. He left home to seek Bramha Gyan. Devarishi Narad took him again to Ved Vyas. He taught him and then sent him to King Janaka, who was supposed to be a ‘Jeevanmukta‘, i.e. free from worldly emotions and attachments, even though he was in a human form. Janak advised Shuk to take up ‘grihasth ashram‘ (life as a married householder), as Bramha Gyan was incomplete without this worldly experience and knowledge. Shuk met Rambha who got interested in him and started to lure him. There took place the famous Vedic ‘Shuk Rambha Samwaad’. She tried to teach him the benefits of spending time with beautiful women and he would argue against her.

Here is some additional information on Shuk (from Wikipedia).

Shuka (also Shukadeva, Shuka deva, Suka, Sukadev, Sukadeva Gosvami) was the son of the sage Ved Vyasa who is credited as the organizer of the Vedas and Puraanas,  and the main narrator of the Bhagvata Puraan. Most of the Bhagavata Puraan consists of Shuka reciting the story to King Parikshit, who had been cursed to die within seven days. Shuka is depicted as a sanyasi, renouncing the world in pursuit of Moksha (liberation), which most narratives assert that he achieved.

According to Mahabharat, Shuka was churned out of a stick of fire after one hundred years of austerity by Ved Vyasa, born with ascetic powers and with the Vedas dwelling inside him, just like his father. The Mahabharata also recounts how Shuka was sent by Ved Vyasa for training to King Janaka, who was considered to be a Jeevanmukta, or one who is liberated while still in a physical body. Shuka asked Janaka about the way to liberation, with Janaka recommending the traditional progression of the four ashramas, which included the householder stage. After expressing contempt for the householder life, Shuka questioned Janaka about the real need for following the householder path. Seeing Shuka’s advanced state of realization, Janaka told him that there was no need in his case.

Stories recount how Shuka surpassed his father in spiritual attainment. Once, when following his son, Vyasa encountered a group of celestial nymphs who were bathing. Shuka’s purity was such that the nymphs did not consider him to be a distraction, even though he was naked, but covered themselves when faced with his father. Shuka is sometimes portrayed as wandering about naked, due to his complete lack of self-consciousness.

A completely different version of the later life of Shuka is given in the Devi-Bhagvat Puraan, considered a secondary Puraana (Upapuran) by many, but an important work in the Shaakt tradition. In this account, Shuka is convinced by Janaka to follow the ashrama tradition, and returns home to marry and follow the path of yoga. He has five children with his wife Pivari (who is actually Rambha) – four sons and a daughter. The story concludes in the same vein as the common tradition, with Shuka achieving moksha.

A place called Shukachari is believed to be the cave of Shuka, where he disappeared in cave stones as per local traditional lore. Shuka in Sanskrit means parrot and thus the name is derived from the large number of parrots found around the Shukachari hills. Shukachari literally means abode of parrots in the Sanskrit language.

Film ‘Shuk Rambha’ is primarily based on the story of Shukdev, from Bhagwat Puraan. The film story was written by Kavi Raghunath Brahmbhatt (1892-1983). Born in Gujarat, Kavi Raghunath was called a Raskavi due to his penchant for writing love songs. He wrote mythological and historical dramas, which became very famous. Taking a clue from Parsi Theatre, he resurrected Gujarati theatre by reviving the tradition of Sanskrit dramas in Gujarati. His autobiography ‘Smaran Manjri’ (published 1955) describes the development of Gujarati Theatre. It is said that the famous song “Mohe Panghat Pe Nandlaal. . .” from film ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960) was taken from his Gujarati drama ‘Chhatra Vijay’ (1919), which was usurped by Shakeel Badayuni. The case was taken up by Writers’ Association of India, which decided the matter in Brahmbhatt’s favour. However, the credit in the film still goes to Shakeel badayuni only. Kavi Raghunath died in 1983.

Film ‘Shuka Rambha’ has 9 songs. One song from this film has been discussed on our blog, long back. So this is only the second song to be posted here. Today is the 4th Monday of the holy month of Shraavan, in the south, west and eastern states of India. For the rest of India, Shraavan has ended on the 7th August – the day of Rakhi Purnima itself. Next Shiv Bhajan on the 21st August will be the last in this  undeclared mini series. So enjoy this Shiv Bhajan today.

jad mein chhupi ye chetanta
jal mein chhupi ye aag re

नैनों को खोल योगी आसन से डोल
तेरे सन्मुख है जीवन की रागिनी
जड़ में छुपी ये चेतनता
जल में छुपी ये आग रे

Yesterday, 13th August was the birthday of Vijayantimala, as she turns 81.

For this celebration, here is a wonderful song performed by her, from the film ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964). The film is from the banner of Anjali Pictures of Madras, and is produced by Adi Narayan Rao. The film is directed by Inder Raj Anand. The songs in this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri, and the music is by Adi Narayan Rao. The screenplay of this film is adapted by Inder Raj Anand, from one of the popular novels of Gulshan Nanda – ‘Andhere Chiraagh’.

The star cast of the film includes Ashok Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Vijayanthimala, Anjali Devi, Manoj Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Kanchanmala, Kanhaiyalal, Mukri, Raju (Child Artiste), Shubha Khote, Mehmood.

The storyline of the film involves a situation wherein the child of the younger brother and his wife (roles played by Manoj Kumar and Vijayantimala), under certain family circumstances, is adopted by the elder brother and his wife (roles played by Ashok Kumar and Nirupa Roy). Although they live together, the younger sister in law is forbidden to call her own child, as her child. As the story progresses, the matters are sorted out. This song is one of the interim situations where the child (role played by Master Raju), calls his real mother as ‘Maa‘ for the first time. The song depicts the happiness and ecstasy expressed by the mother. The song is beautifully performed by Vijayantimala.

The lyrics of this song are provided by Prakash ji. This song used to be a popular one during the radio listening days. Thanks to Prakash ji, for reviving this melodious memory.

Greetings to Vijayantmala ji, on her birthday, and best wishes for many a happy and healthy returns of this day.
