Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

neend kabhi rehti thi aankhon mein
ab rehte hain saanwariya

Aah, so now we know, the sleep can no longer come to the eyes, for the eyes are already occupied with the images of the beloved. You cannot accommodate two swords in a single scabbard. Or for that matter, two lions in the same cave. So it has to be that sleep will have to wait outside, while the joys of visions of the beloved crowd all the room inside the eyes.

I fall back on Shakespeare, yet once again – this endearing snippet from a sonnet, that tells of why the eyes are without sleep, although the limbs are dreadfully tired. Just read these lines,

weary with toil, i haste me to my bed,
the dear repose for limbs with travel tired;
but then begins a journey in my head
to work my mind, when body’s work’s expired:

for then my thoughts–from far where i abide–
intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee,
and keep my drooping eyelids open wide,
looking on darkness which the blind do see:

save that my soul’s imaginary sight
presents thy shadow to my sightless view,
which, like a jewel hung in ghastly night,
makes black night beauteous, and her old face new.

He is putting the blame on his thoughts; that they are intending to make a pilgrimage to you, and intend to keep the drooping eyelids open wide. And when that sight is reached – “thy shadow to my sightless view”, it is like a bright shining jewel hung in the darkness of the ‘ghastly night’. And the consequential effect – the night becomes ‘beauteous’ and her old tired face seems so new. And this jewel of an image is preferred over the fatigue of the limbs and the sleep that they are demanding.

But even Shakespeare sound somewhat rough around the edges, when we compare his creation to the similar sounding songs of Hindi films. Think of “Neend Kabhi Rehti Thi Aankhon Mein, Ab Rehte Hain Saanwariya” (‘Aasra’, 1966). And my mind would prefer the soft melody of this song. Or the lilting strains of “Meri Aankhon Mein Bas Gaya Koi Re, Mujhe Neend Na Aaye Mein Kya Karoon” (‘Barsaat’, 1949).

Today’s song is somewhat unfamiliar – from the 1950 film ‘Muqaddar’. The singer is Nalini Jaiwant. Lyrics are from the pen of Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, and the music is composed by Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. Yes, the Geet Kosh indicates that the music is composed by the two together. This would be one of the very last films of Kehmchand Prakash, as he passed away on 10th Aug of 1950. So it is possible that the work begun by him, was completed by Bhola Shreshtha.

Nalini Jaiwant has a small repertoire of songs she has rendered in Hindi films. Her singing in films is clustered in two periods – from 1941 to 1943 and then from 1948 to 1950. One solo film follows in 1955. The films are ‘Bahen’, ‘Nirdosh’, ‘Radhika’ in 1941, ‘Aankh Micholi’ in 1942 and ‘Adaab Arz’ in 1943. Then we have ‘Gunjan’ in 1948, ‘Chakori’ in 1949, and then ‘Hindustan Hamaara’ and ‘Muqaddar’ in 1950. The film in 1955 is ‘Chingaari’. Total songs she has sung in films is 40, as per Geet Kosh listings. On the blog, we already have showcased six songs in her voice. This is her seventh rendering to be represented here.

Listen to this perky rendering, and if in love, prepare for another night without sleep.

And so continues the saga of sleepless nights. . .

With this song, “Birha Ki Raat” (1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog. It is the first movie in nearly four weeks to get YIPPEED in the blog. This YIPPEE project as well as the debutant movie project have slowed down of late, but hopefully it is just a temporary phase of lull.

Today’s song is from film Lajawab-50. It was a production of Variety pictures – a company owned by actress Ashalata Biswas- wife of Anil Biswas ( real name Mehrunnisa Bhagat). It is needless to state that the music for this and every film of this company, was composed by Anil Biswas. The film was directed by the veteran J.P.Advani, who was known to Anil Biswas from the mid 30s. However, they came together only in 3 successive films, namely Veena-48, Laadli-49 and Lajawab-50.

Jagatrai Pesumal Advani was born on 17-5-1903 in Hyderabad ( Sindh ). After graduating, he studied film making in Germany in the 1920s. After coming back to India, he joined Mohan Bhavnani – a big gun in those days- as his assistant. His first film as a Director was Heer Ranjha-1931. He shifted to Saroj Movietone in 1934 and then to Karachi to work for Golden Eagle Company. He was considered an expert who could handle the Heroines at his will.

He directed about 30 films, including a Hindi/Punjabi bilingual film Sassi-Punnu-46. His Filmography is- 1931: Heer Ranjha; 1933: Zehar-e-Ishq; 1934: Afghan Abla; Dilara; Gafil Musafir; Johar-e-Shamsheer; Tilasmi Talwar; Vasantsena; Flashing Sword; 1935: Bahar-e- Sulemani; Farebi Duniya; Shah Behram; 1936: Elaan-e-Jung; Shokh Dilruba; Sipahsalaar; 1937: Saqi; Insaaf; 1939: Dekha Jayega; 1940: Dharma Bandhan; Sneh Bandhan; 1941: Shehzadi; 1942: Suhagan; 1943: Sahara; 1946: Sassi Punnu; 1948: Veena; 1949: Laadli; 1950: Wafaa; Lajawaab; 1952: Saloni; 1954: Danka; 1955: Hasina.

The cast of the film consisted of Rehana, Sohan, Kuldeep Kaur, David, Pran, Iftekhar etc etc. Not much information is available about this Hero- Sohan. In Hindi films, many aspirants tried their luck. Not all of them got an opportunity to enter films. In the early era, it was easy, but as the years passed by, it became difficult for the hopefuls. Few lucky ones got a Mentor- it helped them to only to enter films but not stay in the industry.

“Aaye bhi vo, gaye bhi vo, khatam fasana ho gaya “. These newcomers were given a fair opportunity to showcase their abilities, but unfortunately, despite their honest efforts, their skill did not show up and the audience was unimpressed. They got big banners, good experienced directors, but they disappointed their Mentors with non existent abilities to act. They proved to be ‘Non- Actors ‘.

Among them, some male actor’s names which I remember off hand are Arjun in Malhar-51, Rattan Chopra in Aman-67,Mom ki Gudia-72, Vijay kumar in Alif laila-54,Premendra in Holi aayee re-70, Deepak kumar in Aabroo-68, Ajay in Wapas-69, Som Dutt in mann ka meet-68, Vikram in Julie-75,Rajeev Kapoor in Raam teri Ganga maili-85, Shekhar Suman in Utsav-84, Kaycee mehra in Chhabilee-60 and mem didi-61, prashant in Sehra-63, Ashok Sharma in Hamari yaad aayegi-61, Ajit Chitnis in Aaj ki baat-55, Nusrat Kardar in Dard-47, Manish in Saraswati Chandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

Sohan kapila was also one such actor, who was not successful as a Hero. Actually, big banners like Filmistan supported him. He got seasoned Heroines like Geeta Bali and Rehana as well as Debutants Jayashree Gadkar and Nalini Chonkar, but nothing worked. He proved that you can take the Horse to the water, but you can not make it drink !!! He acted in Girls school-49, lajawab-50, Sanskar-58, Ek armaan mera-59, Chaand ki duniya-59, Babar-60, Commercial pilot officer-63 and picnik-66 and may be some more as character roles. After he retired, his daughter actress Padmini Kapila also had the same fate !

Film Lajawab-50 had another interesting artiste- Kuldeep kaur. Her life story is very interesting. Born in 1927 at Lahore, Kuldeep Kaur was the daughter of a wealthy landlord family of Punjab and the daughter-in-law of the grandson of Ranjit Singh’s daredevil military commander, General Sham Singh Attariwala.

Her in-laws lived in the village of Attari. Located on Amritsar district’s border with Lahore district, just off the Grand Trunk Road, it was 18 miles away from both Amritsar and Lahore.
Kuldip Kaur was a very shy and simple, beautiful Sikh woman.

Her rich landlord husband, Mohinder Singh Sidhu (also called Mohinder Singh Pompa), was a spoiled chap. He hardly spent a day without visiting either Lahore or Amritsar. He was a good friend of Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala and visited his French style palace – modelled on the Versailles – as well as the magnificent Jagatjit Club several times during the winters. During the summers the Maharaja himself was often on a tour of France and other European countries and was seldom available in Kapurthala.

Kuldip Kaur was brought up like a princess. Her spoiled Sardar husband wanted his wife to be like a modern westernized lady. He wanted his wife to learn swimming and rub shoulders with the club-going English elite based in Lahore and Amritsar.

Once exposed to the club culture, Kuldip Kaur also started getting a taste of its dark side. Since Lahore was a film city, Kuldip Kaur started dreaming about becoming a film actress.

According to one story, Kuldip Kaur started admiring the professional qualities of actor Pran Nath, who was in film acting in Lahore since 1940, when he successfully performed the role of a hero in Punjabi film “Yamla Jutt” (The Simple Peasant).

By July and August of 1947, communal violence erupted into a full-fledged exercise in ethnic cleansing, with Muslims on one side and Sikhs and Hindus on the other. Both Lahore and Amritsar were engulfed in the worst sectarian violence in recent history.

Both Pran and Kuldip Kaur were made to leave Lahore in a jiffy, leaving virtually every belonging behind. Her own village being right on the border was also not peaceful. So Kuldip
Kaur left straight for Bombay. According to one story, in order to impress Pran, Kuldip Kaur decided to bring Pran’s stranded car from Lahore to Bombay.

In a gesture of unprecedented daredevilry, she travelled from the safety of Amritsar to Lahore and drove Pran’s car first to Amritsar and then all the way to Bombay, where she handed over the keys to a surprised but grateful Pran.

After leaving for Bombay, Kuldip Kaur’s contact with her parents and in-laws got diminished. On arrival in Bombay, Kuldip Kaur made up her mind to plunge headlong into the film industry. She was prepared to act in Hindi/Urdu as well as Punjabi films. The experts of film industry were of the opinion that her large piercing eyes and her flat
chin made her an ideal choice for the role of a vamp.

The first ranking heroines of the time included Naseem Bano, Madhubala, Nargis, Suraiya and Nutan. Other heroines included Binarai, Shyama, Nimmi, Nirupa Roy, Meena Shori, Nigar Sultana, Veena and Kamini Kaushal. There was a shortage of ladies willing to perform the role of vamps.

One of Kuldip Kaur’s first films was a Punjabi blockbuster “Chaman” (1948). Within the same year Kuldip Kaur acted in two Hindi/Urdu films “Ziddi” and “Grahasthi“. All her 1948 films did well. After that she never looked back and went from strength to strength. At one stage Kuldip Kaur was so busy in her film roles that for a long duration she did not visit Punjab.

In 1949, Kuldip Kaur worked in at least two films “Ek Thi Ladki” and “Kaneez”. “Ek Thi Ladki” was a blockbuster. Music Director Vinod composed some great tunes for this movie. “Kaneez” did not do too well.In 1950, Kuldip Kaur acted in two great musical Hindi movies “Samadhi” and “Adhi Raat” and did two Punjabi movies “Madaari” and “Chhai”.
1951 was a great year for her: she played the roles of vamps in six movies – “Stage”, “Rajput”, “Nai Zindagi”, “Ek Nazar”, “Afsana” and “Mukhra”. Her role in film “Afsana” received critical acclaim.

1952 was another great year for Kuldip Kaur. She worked in four movies – “Shisham”, “Nau Bahar”, “Baiju Bawra” and “Anjaam”. Again her role was highly praised in what became an all-time classic, “Baiju Bawra”. In 1953 again, Kuldip Kaur had four films – “Mashooka”, “Baaz”, “Anarkali” and “Aabshar”. Of these, “Anarkali” was a super hit and her role stole the limelight. 1954 proved another great year. She was featured in three movies – “Lal Pari”, “Gul Bahar” and “Daak Babu”.

1955 was one of her busiest professional years. She played the bad girl’s role in “Teer Andaz”, “Miss Coca Cola”, “Mast Qalandar” and “Jashan”. In 1956, things slowed down a bit. She worked in two films, but none was released. Two of Kuldip Kaur starrers spilled over into the new year and were released in 1957. These were “Sheroo” and “Ek Saal”. In 1958 Kuldip Kaur had her roles in two films “Sahara” and “Panchyat”. In 1959, she did three films – “Pyaar Ka Rishta”, “Mohar” and “Jagir”. Out of these, one film, “Mohar,” was a great musical. Its music composed by Madan Mohan was simply outstanding.

When Kuldip had fewer Hindi films in hand, she worked in Punjabi films. 1960 started as a reasonably good year for Kuldip Kaur. She had a Hindi film, “Maa Baap,” and a Punjabi film, “Yamla Jutt”.But during this very year, her life was cut short when she got some thorns in her feet and legs and she pulled those out by herself. True to her character of a daredevil woman, she did not seek medical advice immediately. Her sores became not only septic, but she contracted tetanus too, which was then incurable.

Kuldip Kaur died in 1960.

Today’s song is the 5th song to be posted from this film. There were total 11 songs. I feel this film had some of the best songs of Anil Biswas. All the 3 duets of Anil Biswas and Lata are very good. Today’s duet is the third of them, in which Anil Biswas has no words but makes only funny sounds. Enjoy this melodious duet….

jise dhoondhne main nikla hoon
wo hai mera chaand yahaan
jise dhoondhne main nikla hoon
wo hai mera chaand yahaan
isi chaand ki khaatir gori
nagar nagar bharmaaya hoon
apni nagariya chhod ke gori
tere gaanv yoon aaya hoon

o pardesi tere nagar mein
roop nahin kya rang nahin
o pardesi tere nagar mein
roop nahin kya rang nahin
gungun karte bhanwron ke dal
phool kamal ke sang nahin
sun pardesan
roop wahaan hai
lekin aisa rang nahin
lekin aisa rang nahin
jeewan hai jeete hain hum
par jeene ka koi dhang nahin
jeewan hai jeete hain hum
par jeene ka koi dhang nahin
tere gaanv ke jharnon ki sargam sun’ne lalchaaya hoon
tere gaanv ke jharnon ki sargam sun’ne lalchaaya hoon
apni nagariya chhod ke gori
tere gaanv yoon aaya hoon
main tere gaanv yoon aaya hoon

She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.
