During the early days of sound films in 1931, Calcutta (Kolkata) film centre had actresses like Patience Cooper, Jahanara Kajjan, Violet Cooper, Anwari, Sabita Devi (real name: Iris Maude Gasper), Kanan Devi, Radharani etc. Most of them had graduated from the silent films. Those days, in the absence of playback singing system, actresses had to sing their own songs in the films. So, those with good voices also got chance to act in the films made especially in the 30s. Begum Akhtar, Mukhtar Begum, Indubala, Kamala Jharia etc are few names that come to my mind. Ratan Bai was also one of those who joined the bandwagon of actresses in Calcutta in 1932 as an actor-singer. Incidentally, this Ratan Bai (Begg) was a different actor and as such she should not to be confused with Ratan Bai (Shilotri), the mother of Shobhna Samarth.

Debaki Bose (1898 – 1971) is regarded as one of the pioneers in the field of film direction along with P C Barua, V Shantaram and Nitin Bose. After the production of talkie films started in 1931, Debaki Bose joined New Theatres and got his first chance to show his directorial skills in ‘Puran Bhagat’ (1933). This film is regarded as a turning point in the realm of talkie films. For the first time, the dialogue deliveries by actors were made more like natural talk than in the loud voices with theatrical gestures which was carried over to the films from the theatres. Debaki Bose also used expressions of the actors to supplement the dialogues.

Prabhat Film Company’s ‘Padosi’ (1941) can be regarded as the first Hindi film based on the theme of Hindu-Muslim unity. This theme was considered as a courageous and risky proposition as sword pf Damocles was bound to hang over the head any producer dealing with such an explosive subject.
