Ever since talkies came in to being in 1931, there have been some classical and semi-classical female singers who got attracted to Hindi film industry as actor-singers and playback singers in the 1930s and the 1940s. Begum Akhtar, Mukhtar Begum, Indubala, Roshanara Begum, Mallika Pukhraj, Saraswati Rane etc were some of the names that come to my mind. However, their filmy careers was short and soon they returned to the concert singing as their main vocation.

One of the lesser known names in this category of singers was Sundarabai of Poona.

PARISTAAN (1944) was produced under the banner of N R Acharya Art and it was directed by Mahesh Kaul. The star cast included Pahadi Sanyal, Anjali Devi, Kamal Zamindar, Ranjeet Kumari, Sunalini Devi, Master Amritlal, Moni Chatterji, Padma Banerjee etc. From the title of the film, probably many people may guess that it was a film belonging to fantasy genre. But it turned out to be a slapstick comedy though the story by Vaju Kotak was not less than a fantasy.

INDRAASAN (Ekaadashi Mahima) (1952) appears to an obscure movie. In a few places on the internet, the film is spelled as ‘Indrasen’. I went by how the film was spelled on the publicity photographs of some scenes from the film. The film had some well-known actors of the 30s and 40s consisting of Prem Adib, Paro Devi, Ishwarlal, Durga Khote, Nand Kishore, Ranjana etc. The film was produced under the banner of Greenland Pictures, Bombay and was directed by Raja Nene.

Sometimes you wonder why a song becomes a huge hit. And at other times, you wonder why a song doesn’t.

Today, as I write this post, I am left to ponder on why this song did not become as huge a hit as, in my opinion, it deserved to. The only explanation I can come up with is that the film tanked badly at the box office. And as we know, many a song has suffered purely because the film itself didn’t do well.

Today (15 august 2016) is the 69th independence day of India.

With the passage of so much time, the general knowledge of younger generation about Indian freedom struggle and independence is no longer what it used to be in the past. One study mentions that the biggest source to make people aware of our independence day are patriotic songs from movies, followed by school text books.

Talking about Independence day six decades after we received it from the comforts of our home is one thing. Even daring to talk about independence when the country was under British Rule was considered treason those days and such daring people were severely dealt with by the British at that time .
