I had never thought highly of producer-director Kishore Sahu until I read an article written in August 1942 issue of ‘Filmindia’ by Hyacinth (a pseudo name for Susheela Rani Patel) a few months back. Until then, I had come across his name as the director of ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’ (1960) which I had seen in the theatre. Then, I was also aware of him of his association with ‘Kaalighata’ (1951) and ‘Mayur Pankh’ (1954). But in all these films, Kishore Sahu was not in my radar as my attention was more on Shankar-Jaikishan for their melodious songs in these movies.

I had no idea how Kishore Sahu looked like until I saw ‘Poonam Ki Raat’ (1965) in which he had the role of a doctor. After that I saw him in ‘Guide’ (1965) in the role of Marco. In both these films, he did not impress me either with his personality or with his acting. Even in the song picturisation of phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai, his acting during lip syncing one line ‘daady ko mummy ko…..sung by R D Burman was pedestrian.

But the article referred to above, read with many tit bits and news snippets appearing on the various issues of ‘Filmindia’ magazines about his films, revealed that in the 1940s, he had directed many successful films. Even as an actor, he had a good fan following if I go by readers' mail in the Filmindia magazines. The fact that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel attended the premier of the film ‘Veer Kunal’ (1945), produced and directed by Kishore Sahu would testify to the fact that he had a charming and pleasing personality in his younger days.

Kishore Sahu (22/11/1915 – 22/08/1980) was born in Durg in a wealthy family. His grandfather was the Diwan (Prime Minister) of Raja of the State of Raigarh and Rajnandgaon (now in Chhattisgarh). After completion of high school, Kishore Sahu completed graduation from Morris College, Nagpur in 1936. He was a brilliant student and was the Secretary of his college’s English Literary Society. He also edited the College magazine and took part in college dramas.

His father was keen to send him abroad for higher studies to become a barrister. But the young Kishore was attracted towards film industry and he was keen to become an actor. After knowing the intense desire of Kishore Sahu to become an actor, his father encouraged him in his pursuit. In 1937, Kishore Sahu came to Bombay (Mumbai) and met Himanshu Rai, the founder of Bombay Talkies. After his interview, Kishore Sahu was selected for the lead role opposite Devika Rani for the film ‘Jeewan Prabhat’ (1937). The film was commercially successful. However, in the review of the film in ‘Filmindia’ magazine, Kishore Sahu was pronounced as “another misfit as an actor. He is a big disappointment. He is worse than Ashok Kumar”.

Kishore Sahu’s entrepreneurial ambition made him to leave Bombay Talkies and float a film production company called ‘India Artists Ltd’ for which he was the Managing Director. ‘Bahurani’ (1940) was the first film produced under this banner in which he acted in the lead role opposite Rose. The film was commercially successful. However, during the making of the film, Kishore Sahu had differences with one of the largest contributors of finance for the banner. After the release of the film, Kishore Sahu resigned from the company and returned to Bombay Talkies to take the lead role in the film ‘Punar Milan’ (1940) opposite Snehprabha Pradhan. The film was a runaway hit.

During the making of ‘Punar Milan’ (1940), Kishore Sahu fell in love with Snehprabha Pradhan. They got married on September 13, 1940. However, in less than six months of their marriage, they separated leading to divorce sometime in 1942. The separation in less than six months of the marriage affected Kishore Sahu to such an extent that he left Bombay and stayed for months in his native town and Nagpur.

After recovering from the shock of separation, Kishore Sahu returned to Bombay with a story of ‘Kunwaara Baap’ (1942) which was his debut film as a director. He was also the lead actor opposite Protima Dasgupta. The film was a light social comedy. The box office success of this film encouraged him to direct two more social comedy films – ‘Raja’ (1943) and ‘Sharaarat’ (1944) in which he was again paired with Protima Dasgupta. While ‘Raja’ (1943) was a commercial success, ‘Sharaarat’ (1944) did not fare well at the box office.

Kishore Sahu’s next film belonged to the historical genre in which he was not so far been involved as an actor and director. The success of ‘Veer Kunal’ (1945) took him to a greater height. In the same year, he bought Hindustan Chitra Production from Chinubhai Madhavlal. So he had now his own film production company. However, his next three films – ‘Sindoor’ (1947), ‘Saajan’ (1947) and ‘Nadiya Ke Paar’ (1948) which he directed, were produced by Filmistan. With these films, Kishore Sahu scored a hat trick of box office hits followed by his home production ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) in which he was in the lead role and the director.

In the 1950s, Kishore Sahu seems to have lost his ‘golden touch’ in most of the films which he produced and/or directed. The one film during this period which was critically acclaimed and also fared well at the box office was ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraayi’ (1960) which he directed. In the 1960s, ‘Grahasti’ (1963) directed by him for the Gemini was a box office success. His home production ‘Poonam Ki Raat’ (1965) did not create ripples at the box office.

To launch his daughter Naina Sahu as heroine, Kishore Sahu produced and directed ‘Hare Kaanch Ki Choodiyaan’ (1967) which was a box office failure. He made one more attempt to promote his daughter by producing and directing ‘Pushpanjali’ (1970) which also failed at the box office. The last film which Kishore Sahu produced and directed was ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974) which sealed his fateas producer and director. His last film as an actor was ‘Vakil Babu’ (1982) which was released after his sudden death in Bangkok on 22nd August 1980.

Apart from acting and directing films, Kishore Sahu was known for his short stories which he used to contribute to Hindi journals. Most of the short stories were written during his early days in the film industry. In 1942, he published his select collection of short stories in a book ‘Tes Ke Phool’ in Hindi.

RAJA (1943) was the second of his trilogy of light social comedy films, the other two films being ‘Kunwaara Baap’ (1942) and ‘Sharaarat’ (1944) in which Kishore Sahu acted in the lead roles and also directed the films. In these three films, his leading lady was Protima Dasgupta.

The film had 8 songs written by Rammurti Chaturvedi (4), Amritlal Nagar (1) and Bhagwati Charan Verma (2). Lyricist for the remaining one song is not known. All the songs were set to music by Khan Mastana. As far as I know, this was the only film in which Bhagwati Charan Verma, a well-known Hindi novelist and the poet was associated as lyricist. In fact, one of the twosongs credited to him in the film, namely ‘hum deewaanon ki kya hasti' was written by him as a poem in 1928:

Hum deewaanon ki kya hasti
Hai aaj yahaan kal wahaan
Masti kaa aalam saath chala chale
Hum dhool udaate jahaan chale

I wanted to present this song sung by Kishore Sahu. Unfortunately, this song is not available on the internet. In fact, none of the 8 songs were available on YT until one song ‘niraali duniya hamaari’ was uploaded by me on YT about a month back which I am presenting for this post. The song is sung by Kishore Sahu and Protima Dasgupta on the words of Rammurthi Chaturvedi.

Enjoy this rare song in the voice of the lead actors.

With this song, ‘Raja’ (1943) makes its debut on the Blog.

To keep up our New Year resolution of one movie getting Yippeeeed per day I found that the 1982 Manmohan Desai produced & directed “Desh Premee” falls short by a song to achieve YIPPEEHOOD.

The movie had six songs (referred myswar.com for this information) of which the blog has 5 songs. The songs were penned by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi -Pyare were the music directors. The movie had one song by Mohd. Rafi- his last in a Manmohan Desai movie (that is the left over song). Manmohan Desai with Laxmi-Pyare and Mohd. Rafi had created a magical era of Bollywood music. This movie had Shammi Kapoor in a supporting role with the Bengali superstar of that era- Uttam Kumar; but both didn’t have any song to lip-sync. The movie payed tribute to Mehmood’s Hydrabadi- character from “Gumnaam” and we had Amitabh Bachchan dressing up; as Mehmood had done in Gumnaam and singing “Khatoon Ki Khidmat Me” in a Hyderabadi lingo in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Laxmikant’s voice was used for both Prem Chopra and Amitabh in the song “Gore Nahin Hum Kaale Sahi”; the only time he sang in movies (credits of the movie shows his name as Laxmikant Karpe.) This was one movie where Parveen Babi didn’t sing a song. Though it was an “Average” movie everywhere else it was a “Golden Jubilee” at Hyderabad’s Ramakrishna (I remember that as the movie hall where I saw Sholay for the first time in my life). The film paid tribute to Mohd. Rafi and Uttam Kumar both of whom died two years before the movie released. It’s censor cerificate has the date 6-3-1982 and it was released on 23-04-1982.

So here is the last song. It is filmed in a Basti- Bharat Nagar; trust Manji (thats how Amitabh refers to Manmohan Desai in his interviews) to make things very clear to the public. It is shown to be a refugee camp of sorts and has Premnath playing a Nair- South Indian, Shammi Kapoor a Sardar- North Indian of course, Uttam Kumar a Bengali- Indian from east, and Parikshit Sahni representing western India and a muslim for added effect; things cannot be more explicit than this- right? The song preaches to love our fellow Indians and respect the ideals of the nation.
Foot Note: just saw the title sequence of the movie and I recommend it for the thought behind how Amitabh’s blood is shown dripping from his leg and “Inquilaab Zindabad” is formed. Hatsoff to MANJI.

Erich Segal’s immortal novel “Love Story” has inspired quite a few movies. The first such movie was a Hollywood movie of the same name that was released in 1970, a few months after this novel was released on 14 february 1970.

Hindi movies have also joined the bandwagon. “Ankhiyon ke Jharokhon se” (1978) was based on “Love Story”. A Rajshree Productions release, this movie was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Hiren Nag. Vrajendra Gaur as the writer had adapted this story, Indianising the movie as much as he could.

Putting songs is one of the obvious ways of Indianising a foreign story. And it must be said that the songs of this movie served to create just the right ambiance for the story to move.

Like the novel, the end is revealed in the very beginning of the movie. If “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se” (1978) still did well at the bo office then one of the major reasons for that were its songs that were superbly created and integrated with the story.

The fact that this story was adapted from “Love Story” the novel was not known to me when I bunked my afternoon practical class to watch this movie in matinee show one evening in 1978. I did not like the movie much because of its tragic end (revealed right at the beginning) and also because of the story line that I felt were quite contrived and artificial. The reason for that was of course the foreign nature of the source material, as one can see.

If people still lapped up the movie, it was because of its music. What superbly created songs by Ravindra Jain ! He used Hemlata as his femmale playback singer and I found her voice quite high quality honey like in these songs. Surprisingly, no other music director would use her voice and her career faded just as Ravindra Jain’s did.

Coming to “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se”(1978), this movie had six songs in it. Three of them have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is a collection of “dohas” that we used to study in our Hindi textbooks those days. These “dohas” of poets like Rahim, Kabeer, Tulsidas etc contain invaluable lessons of life, delivered tersely and succinctly.

I am quite surprised that these “dohas” did not find places in too many movie songs. This song was one of the very few such songs.

Students of later generations do not get exposed to such poems I feel. As a result many of the words in these poems have ended up becoming alien to them. Lyrics of this song is available online and each one copies from each other, but the lyrics are noted down by later generation music enthusiasts who are not familiar with these poms as as a result the lyrics of this song available online contain serious inaccuracies.

The song is sung by Hemalata and Jaspal Singh. The song is picturised on Ranjeeta and Sachin who are shown contesting in a “poetry contest” in their college.

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

Here is this nice collection of Hindi “Dohas” in this song.

I have not been able to get one word right (may be more). I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable in the lyrics.

jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho

door ho kinaara bhale door ho

de de jaan par na dare matwaala
de de jaan par na dare matwaala
ismein hi jeet maane jeet dilwaala
jis dil mein lagan manzil ki ho
wo manzil ko pa hi lega
raste ke har kaante ko wo
phool bana hi lega aa aa
phool bana hi lega

kyun hamse sharma gaye
kyun hamse sharma gaye
gore gore mukhde par
zulfon ke baadal chhaa gaye
zulfon ke baadal chhaa gaye
phir bhi nazron se karte ho
ghaayal hamen huzoor kyun
ghaayal hamen huzoor kyun
dil mein hamaare rehte ho
phir bhi nazron se door kyun
phir bhi nazron se door kyun

jis din se toone harzaai
ham se naata tod diya
ham se naata tod diya
hamne bhi us din se haaye
dil ka lagaana chhod diya
haay dil ka lagaana chhod diya
dil waalon ko dil dena hai
duniya ka dastoor kyun
duniya ka dastoor kyun
dil mein hamaare rehte ho
phir bhi nazron se door kyun
phir bhi nazron se door kyun

lab pe thhandi thhandi aahen
aankh mein aansoo rehte hain
aeji aankh mein aansoo rehte hain
yaad teri seene mein lagaaye
ro ro ham ye kehte hain
haaye
kisi ne pyaar ka sheesha
kar diya chaknaachoor kyun
kar diya chaknaachoor kyun
dil mein hamaare rehte ho
phir bhi nazron se door kyun
phir bhi nazron se door kyun

Today’s song is from the film Hatimtai-56.

Among older generations, reading books, novels etc, other than the school Text books, was considered a gateway to general knowledge and an aid to develop an impressive personality. As times changed, I think this habit has diminished with every new generation and today I find that students do not read anything ( not even Newspapers-except sports and films section) other than school or college syllabus and Guide books. Their general knowledge is below par in most cases. I do not blame them, because the education system in our country has been modelled on such lines that students will only read what brings them more marks. Nothing else. They have no time left for general reading due to college and classes. Additionally parents too encourage only this – not general reading…out of helplessness ! Of course their intelligence and skills have not diminished but have different openings suitable for today’s life-struggle.
