Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 41
——————————————————————————————

1st August of 2009, ten years ago. Five songs had been posted that day. As many as 4 movies opened their accounts on the blog that day – the four debut movies being ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ (1952), ‘Sabse Bada Rupaiya’ (1955), ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ (1957) and ’Laakhon Mein Ek’ (1971). The fifth film – ‘Bhabhi’ from 1957 had its 5th song posted that day.

The current status of these five films is that two of them – ‘Bhaabhi’ and ‘Duniya Rang Rangeeli’ have since been yippeee’d. for the remaining 3 films, two songs are pending for each one of them. The following table gives the complete status, as of just prior to this post today. The second last column gives info about the film status as of ten years ago, and the last column gives the status, as of today.

Ruk Jaa Re Piyaa Sabse Bada Rupaiyya 1955 Deb 7 of 9
Tie Lagaa Ke Maana Janaab Ban Gaye Hero Bhaabhi 1957 5th Yippeee’d
Tum Kyaa Jaano Tumhaari Yaad Me Ham Kitna Roye Shin Shinaaki Bubbla Boo 1952 Deb 5 of 7
Sainyaa Kyon Aaye Mujhe Angdaayi Duniya Rang Rangeeli 1957 Deb Yippeee’d
Jogi O Jogi Arre Pyaar Me Kyaa Hogaa Laakhon Mein Ek 1971 Deb 3 of 5

Getting on to Ten-Year Challenge, I looked up the pending songs from the three films that are still awaiting yippeee status, and I have picked this song from the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’ of 1952.

This film is produced and directed by PL Santoshi, under his home banner of Santoshi Productions. The main cast of actors is listed as Rehana, Ranjan, Sadhana Bose, Veera, Baby Tabassum, Radha Kishan, Mumtaz Ali, Tiwari, Samson, Indu Pal, Shama Gulnar, Prabhu, Sarosh, Bingu, Goldstein, Mehmood, Senoor (parrot), Titi (cat).

The film has 7 songs which are penned by PL Santoshi and the music is composed by C Ramchandra. In the earlier posts, our dear Arun ji has dealt with the theme of the picture, its main artists and the issue of the film being banned by the govt, inspite of getting a ‘U’ certificate from the Censors. Interested readers may refer to the detailed posts by Arun ji, for the following songs – “Arey Baba. . Ye Hansi Baba. . Ye Khushi Baba. .” and, “Kuchh Chuhalen Hon Kuchh Charche Hon”.

Interesting to note that 1998, a TV serial with title ‘Cincinnati Bublaa Boo’ was telecast by Star Plus, over a period of 25 weeks – yes, ‘Shin Shinaaki’ and ‘Cincinnat’ sound very suspiciously close to each other. Cincinnati is a city in the US, and Shin Shinaaki is the name of the female lead in this fantasy story.

The song is crafted like a bhajan, and has very very philosophical flavor. Actually, the theme of this song is surprisingly quite profound – telling about a thief who lives inside, and does not allow the individual person to light the lamp of devotion. Tied with the bonds of karma, the person is not able to resist as this thief plunders the treasures of good will and bhakti, and keeps the self entangled in the web of this world. This thief is ‘maaya’, the illusory misconceptions and wrong understanding of this world, which hides the truth about this world, the self and the devotional relationship to the Almighty.

The verses of this song have a deep meaning, and are very well crafted. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar. A song that needs some attention as one listens to it.

With this song, the film ‘Shin Shinaki Boobla Boo’moves one step closer to Yippeee status. Now only one more song of this film remains to be posted here.

“Murliwaala”(1951) was directed by Vasant Painter for Madhuvani Chitra, Bombay. This movie had Vijaylaxmi, Shashi Kapoor (sr), Durga Khote, Gulaab, Mahipal, Parshuram, Krishna Kumari, Niranjan Sharma, Vasant rao Pahalwan, Ramesh Sinha etc in it.

There were eight songs in this movie. One song has been covered in the past.

This song is sung by Lata. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist of this song. Sudhir Phadke is the music director.

The mukhda of this song is similar to that of <a href="“>another Lata song from “Bahut Din Huye”(1959).

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Today’s song is from film Nakhre-51. It is sung by Devendra Mohan, Shamshad Begum and chorus. This is a foot tapping song, reminding of a Vinod or O P Nayyar song.The tune of this song resembles a more well known song of later period,but I am unable to identify it. This is a second successive song I am discussing, after song from “Hawai Khatola”-46 which also had a similar tune to some other song.

I have come across umpteen number of songs from Hindi films which have similar tunes-in part or the whole song. I am not talking of Parody songs, because Parody songs obviously use a popular tune to make fun of it,with different but funny lyrics. Here the intention is to make a comedy song.

I am talking of those ‘inspired ‘ songs, which are composed intentionally and can be called a copy song. I remember I had written an article ” Ek dil do jaane- Ek tune do gaane “, in March 2013 on a friend’s Blog called Harveypam’s blog. In that article,I had given 20 songs as examples in which tunes were copied from other Hindi songs. Our Raja ji, Ava Suri ji and our regular commentator Partha Chanda ji were regular readers and had put their comments on my article that time. Other readers had put examples of another 50-60 songs which had similar tunes.

This phenomenon of copying can be found in Hindi films since Talkie films started.Initially,the whole song used to be repeated in another film,by other composers. Later on they settled on copying only the tunes,perhaps !

After 1950 onwards, copying a tune became a frequent practice. SD Burman’s song from film ‘ Naujawan’-51 ( Thandi hawaen,lahara ke aayen) was copied 6 more times in different songs in different films. ( the original song itself was ‘inspired’ by ” C’est La Vie” by Charles Boyer from film “Algiers”-1938 ). A well known case is of Madan Mohan copying the tune of Sajjad Husain’s Sangdil-51 song” Ye hawa ye raat ye chaandni”, for his song from ” Aakhri Daon”-58-” tuze kya sunaun main dilruba”. Famous Music Critic Girija Rajendran had openly proved how all songs of film ” Mera naam Joker”-70 were copies from earlier film songs. For example, the Title song “Kehta hai Joker, saara zamana” was copied from ” apni nazar se unki nazar tak” a song from film Hum Log-51.( See, I can write on Poetry side also !!!)

This is a vast subject and a whole book can be written on it. So far only Hindi songs inspired by other Hindi songs has been discussed. If you see songs from Bangla and other languages, then you may have to write 3 books ! Does it mean that there is no originality in Hindi film songs ? No, there ARE original tunes and songs in Hindi films. To conclude this topic,I quote a few lines from the interview of Music Director Nashad, published in Film Fare of 5th August 1955, where he has spoken about inspired songs……

” Although no one says it to my face, I know that there is a section in the film industry who decry my music as “a re-hash of familiar tunes.”
This amounts to a charge of plagiarism.

I have no defense, no apology, to offer, except to say that, if am a plagiarist, I am one unconsciously.
With only seven main notes, six ragas, thirty-six raginis and seventy-two sub-raginis, every “new” musical composition is bound to sound familiar in places.
Try to hum any popular film composition of today and then cast back your mind. Make a careful search for a parallel and you will easily find one in some celebrated songs of yesterday….”

This sounds like an excuse to me. What is to Nashad is same to other MDs too, then how come others are not blamed for plagiarism? Let us leave it at that only.

Film Nakhre-51 was directed by Surya Kumar. Yes, he is the same famous Dance Master/ Choreographer of many hit films of 50s and 60s. Suryakumar and Krishna kumar were brothers. Both were Choreographers. The story of Dance Director brothers Krishna kumar and Surya kumar is very interesting.

Anthony (Tony) Lazarus was born in 1918 and his younger brother Robert Lazarus was born on 14-12-1924. They lost the parents and were raised in an orphanage, from where , the famous film dancer Azurie picked them and trained till they became good dancers. Tony became Krishnakumar and Robert took the name Suryakumar. Krishna Kumar started acting and doing choreography in films of late 40s and early 50s. In every film of Mehboob and Kardar, he was present. Soon he became famous. However, he also developed some enemies. Krishnakumar was murdered by his enemies on 7-7-1951. The culprits were never captured.

It is believed that it was Krishna Kumar, who taught Master Bhagwan his famous Dance steps (later copied by Amitabh Bachhan also), making his film ‘Albela’ a block buster. In one of the famous songs in Albela, you can see Krishnakumar’s photo kept on a table, as a tribute to him.

Robert aka Suryakumar started his film career as asstt. in a sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwana’-1947. During this period,yesteryear actress/Dancer Azurie trained him and krishnakumar in Dancing. In those days the term ‘Choreographer was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as the pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films,that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing skills and succeeded. Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar),in film “Awaara”-1951,when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films.Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles-1980. Suryakumar was also very friendly with dancer Edwina. He visited her London home many times, after she settled after marriage in London.

Surya Kumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Surya Kumar had a penchant for acting. He would himself appear in most of his dances in films. During our college days, it was our pastime to search for him in Helen dances. Surya kumar acted in 7 films, in small roles – Singar-49, Naya Raasta-53, Shesh Naag-57, Bus Conductor-59, Aankh Michauli-62, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravankumar-88. Surya Kumar also directed 4 films – Kamal-49, Nakhre-51, Laadla-54 and Saazish-59.

He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too,before retiring. His last days were spent in poverty and he died on 19-8-1987 in Bombay.

Normally, choreographers, cinematographers, editors,arrangers,dress designers,art directors etc (artists behind the curtains) are the most neglected people and no one writes about them,so not is much known also about them. It was very difficult to gather information on Surya kumar.

Let us now listen to today’s song. If any reader can identify similar tune song from other films,kindly inform us in the comments column.

(Information for this post was collated, culled and edited from books- ‘Edwina’ by Surjit Singh ji, Flash back by Isak Mujawar, several Facebook group pages and especially ‘Dances on the footpath’ by Richard S, Minai’s cinema nritya gharana and my notes)

Today’s song is from film ‘Kashmir’ (1951).

More than 3 years ago I had discussed one song from this film. That time I had said this, which is true even today.

In Hindi films, there were quite a few films made on the background of Kashmir. The first such film was ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1940), in which the lead pair was handsome Master Vithal and petite, lovely Kavita Devi. Next was ‘Kashmir Hamara Hai’ (1950) (original name was ‘Bapoo Ne Kaha Tha’) with lead pair of Paresh Bannerjee and Meera Mishra. This was also the first Hindi film of Bombay, in which Jagmohan Sursagar sang a song – Rang De Kesariya’. The third film was ‘Kashmir’ (1951), where the lead pair was beautiful, regal Veena and handsome Al Nasir. This film was actually filmed in Kashmir ghati.

Next film was ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1964), by far the most successful of all Kashmir films so far. The lead pair was debonaire Shammi Kapoor and a debutante Sharmila Tagore. There was also a documentary ‘Kashmir Hamara Hai’ made by Films Division of Indian Government in 1948 which was shown in all theatres in India, in the wake of tribal attacks by Pakistan on Kashmir. Later on some more films on Kashmir were made – (the list is indicative, not exhaustive)

  • Johar in Kashmir (1966)
  • Shayar-E-Kashmir (1972)
  • Love in Kashmir (1976)
  • Mission Kashmir (2000)
  • Kashmir Hamara Hai (2001) ( Unreleased, though Censored on 17-10-2001)
  • Border Kashmir (2002).

‘Kashmir’ (1951) was not a very popular film. The reason was, after the partition and independence, people were looking for a respite from all that patriotic fervor, which they had more than enough for the last few years. They were tired. Now they got what they wanted and some peace of mind was sought, perhaps. Additionally, the Hindi film music was going through its Golden Period and so many films with excellent music were enjoyed by people, may be hence serious films like ‘Kashmir’ issue got side tracked. Though a film buff myself, even I had not seen this film.

The film was produced and directed by Rajendranath Jolly, for Raajdeep Pictures, Bombay. The MD was Hansraj Behl and the lyricists were Sasrshaar Sailaani and Baaba ji, for 9 songs of the film. The song is sung by Mohd. Rafi and Master Sonik.

Master Sonik aka Manohar Lal Sonik was born on 26-11-1926 in Siyalkot, Punjab. By the time he was three years old, he lost his vision completely. Undaunted, he learnt music – first from music school of Lahore and then from Lucknow. For sometime, he was assistant to Pt Amarnath Batish.

After  partition he joined All India Radio, Delhi. Later, he sang 8 songs in 7 Hindi films, namely ‘Chaar Din’ (1949), ‘Stage’ (1951), ‘Kashmir’ (1951), ‘Khaibar’ (1954), ‘Mast Qalandar’ (1955), ‘Inquilab’ (1956) and then after 20 years he sang in film ‘Umar Qaid’ (1975) also. He gave music to film ‘Ishwar Bhakti’ (1951) along with Giridhar and then film ‘Mamta’ (1952), with Hansraj Behl.

Meanwhile, his nephew Omprakash Sonik, who was a singer on Delhi AIR, proposed working as a team of composers. They got their first film ‘Dil Ne Phir Yaad Kiya’ (1966). The songs became very popular. They continued to give music till ‘Anaadi Dada’ (1993). Master Sonik died on 9-7-1993.

The cast of the film was an interesting mix of fading and emerging actors, like Veena, Al Nasir, Badriprashad, Tiwari, Kailash, Uma Dutt, Kamal Kapoor, Nirupa Roy, Arun Ahuja etc. There was also an actress who made her debut with this film. Let us take a look at her short bio again.

For the actress Achala Sachdev (3-5-1920 to 30-4-2012), this was her debut Hindi film (though another film ‘Dilruba’ (1950) featuring her was released prior to this film, but she considers this film as her debut film). Achala Sachdev’s original name was Rajinder. Her name is permanently conjoined with a mother’s role. She did a mother’s role when she was very young and since then – more than a heroine – she has been seen either as a sister or mother in films. In her earliest film ‘Dilruba’ (1950) she was Dev Anand’s sister and later in many films she was a fixed mother of Dev Anand.

She worked in All India Radio, Lahore. She came to Delhi after the Partition and continued her job in All India Radio, till her first film. She acted in 181 Hindi films, 3 Punjabi films and 1 Gujarati film, in addition to 1 incomplete Bangla film. She acted in few television serials and FD documentaries too.

In her early years she had got married to Gyan Sachdeva. She begot one son and one daughter from him. Her son settled in US and daughter in Bombay. When she could not pull on, she divorced her husband. After 12 years of loneliness she fell in love and married an American Clifford Douglas Peters, who was an Engineer and ran an electronics factory in Poona. She stopped accepting new films after 1976 and then shifted to Poona.

After her second husband died, she shifted from her bungalow in Bhosari, near Poona to a spacious flat in Hadapsar area of Poona. She had completed all films on hand, but due to insistence of family friend Yash Chopra, she acted in some of his films – notably ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge’ (1995). Though her last film was ‘Dahak’ (1998), her last released film was ‘Suno Sasur Ji’ (2003).

During her heydays, she was very friendly with Sunil Dutt and Nargis, Mona Dev Anand (Kalpana Kartik), Meena Kumari, Saira Bano and her mother Naseem Bano. She was very punctual during her shootings. Once while working in a Rajesh Khanna film, she had to wait for him for 4 hours, with all make up done. When this continued to happen for next 10 days, she left the film and went back to Poona. Rajesh Khanna wrote an apology letter to her and then only she came back to complete the film.

After her husband passed away in 2002, she was all alone. Her last film released in 2003. After that no one from film industry ever contacted her till her last days. She was very generous. She had donated 25 lakhs to an NGO, Janseva Foundation to start ‘Achala Sachdev Institute of Education’. She also gave 15 Lakhs to Dr. HV Desai Eye Hospital for a ward construction. In her last days, she even donated her flat also to the NGO Janseva Foundation.

She was seriously unwell for last 6 months of her life, and was looked after by the NGO. Admitted to Poona General Hospital ICU, she got paralysis, lost her vision and then lost her life on 30-4-2012. A highly successful film star with lots of money, but she was neglected by her own son and daughter. Above all, during her last lonely 10 years in Poona, not one soul from the film world met her. What was pathetic was, when she was admitted in ICU, her attending doctor, Dr. Mehta sent messages to Yash Chopra and others in film industry, but none came or even enquired and she died a lonely death.

Another interesting person in this film was actor Al Nasir. Many people make a confusion in him and actor Nasir Khan. Some sites even wrongly mix up their filmography. Even earlier, I have clarified this difference. Not many readers will be aware of him. Al Nasir was one of the most handsome actors of his times. ABDUL REHMAN AL NASIR GAZNAVI (popularly known as Al Nasir ) was born on 27-11-1922 in Kabul. His father was a big shot – Chancellor of Law. He was related to the Begum of Junagadh and also to the Nawab of Bhopal.

His schooling was done in Dehradun up to Sr. Cambridge and degree was obtained from Kabul college. He was a tall and handsome young man, who was keen on joining Air Force. He went to Bombay in 1941 for this purpose. While in National Studios to meet a friend, Mehboob spotted him and offered him a job. He was taken on the rolls of studio.

For next 6 months there was only pay, but no work. In 1942 National Studios closed down, but Mohan Sinha offered him hero’s role in film ‘Preetam’ (1942). His father did not like this. However Al Nasir worked in 17 films till 1957.

Being handsome and polished he impressed women . He was a womaniser. During the shooting of film ‘Prithvi Vallabh’ (1943), he married Khursheed Jehan commonly known as Meena (later Meena Shorey). Whenever she was away, he would run after other women. He had an affair with Nigar Sultana. After the divorce with Meena, he married actress  Manorama, when he had gone to Lahore.

He divorced Manorama in 1946 and married actress Veena. They had 2 children. Daughter Huma became a professor and son was Altamash. Al Nasir  was fond of hunting and reading English books.

He acted in ‘Preetam’, ‘Prithvi Vallabh’, ‘Pathron Ke Shehar’, ‘Shehar Se Door’, ‘Dhamkee’, ‘Shalimaar’, ‘Khamosh Nigaahen’, ‘Aarsi’, ‘Ek Roz’, ‘Daastaan’, ‘Bewee’, ‘Kashmir’, ‘Mr and Mrs 55’, ‘Hatimtai Ki Beti’, ‘Sakhi Haatim’, ‘Indrasabha’ and ‘Mera Salaam’.

Al Nasir died at the age of only 35 years, on 17-10-1957.

As mentioned earlier, the film had 9 songs. Today’s song will be the 4th song to be discussed from this film. Coincidence is that both songs, earlier discussed by me – “Uth Ae Watan Ke Naujawan” and today’s song, happen to be patriotic songs, sung by Indian fighters in the film. Surprisingly, both these patriotic songs were not released in Pakistan. My guess is that, the then Government possibly did not want to hurt Pakistan’s feelings, so these songs were released only in India.

One more thing. The first song of this film , discussed earlier by me, was in 2 parts (gramophone record no. N-36728). One more part (part 3) was recorded in the voices of Rafi, Geeta and chorus. This Patriotic song too was not  issued on a commercial record (possibly for the same reason). This information is given in the HFGK itself.

Let us now enjoy the second patriotic song from this film, released only in India and not in Pakistan.

This song is from Master Bhagwan’s film ‘Damaad’ (1951).

This is the film which inspired Bhagwan to write a comedy social musical film story for his evergreen film Albela. In the decade of 1940’s, Bhagwan had specialised in low budget C grade action and stunt films. Usually his films would be completed in Rs. 60 to 70 thousand rupees only. He used to churn out films after films with the same set of actors with almost the same story in all his films. The audience of Master Bhagwan’s films came to the theatre to see his antics and comedy, coupled with action scenes of fighting and incredible stunts.

Usually Bhagwan never played the hero’s role in his own films. The hero in his films would necessarily be Baburao Pehelwan and Bhagwan used to be his side kick. Both had their love interests – usually the heroine for Baburao and her friend or maid for Bhagwan. Like Baburao and Bhagwan, even the lady actors were fixed. He had a set of such actresses like Shanta Patel, Chanchal, Leela Gupte, Vitha Lokare, Usha Shukla etc. They used to be in his films by turns. Actor Azim Bhai (who later became the famous Fight Master in Hindi films) was usually the good natured but timid employer of these two. Their job was to protect the Seth ji from goons, fight with them and finally win the girls in the end. Film after film the same story was used with slight changes here and there. The audience was least bothered about the story or the histrionics etc. They came for the dialogues, the fights and stunts.

Very few people know that both Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar were his great fans. When Bhagwan fell on bad times and shifted to a 2-room tenement in a chawl in Dadar, Dilip Kumar, while going for his daily shootings, used to stop at the chawl, honk till Bhagwan appeared in the gallery and waved to him, and then he proceeded to his work.

It was Raj Kapoor, who used to see his shootings in Jagriti studio, very near to RK studio. He once suggested to him to try making a social film. Incidentally, his good friend C Ramchandra (Anna for Bhagwan) also pressed him to dare making a social film. CR even promised him to give music to his social film in his popular name C Ramchandra (he gave music to Bhagwan’s films in the name of ‘Annasaheb ‘ till then). Bhagwan started thinking seriously on this issue. At that very time he got an offer to work in a social comedy film, to be produced by Beema Films of MT Mudnani and directed by Brij Rani. Since this was a social film Bhagwan wanted to give it a try. He wanted to assess the feasibility of making his own social film.

The film was ‘Damaad’ (1951). The story was simple. A simpleton is made a ‘ghar jamai’ (resident son-in-law) and has a miserable life. Incidentally, he becomes a successful singer. The film was absolutely an ordinary one. Being a director himself, Bhagwan understood the potential of the story to become a hit film. In addition the offer of C Ramchandra’s music was also inviting him. The film ‘Damaad’ came and went without making any ripples. Neither the producer made any more films, nor the director got any other film. The cast and the 3 MDs employed were also C grade anyway.

Taking inspiration from film ‘Damaad’, Bhagwan started writing the story of ‘Albela’ . For this film, he needed a cast other than his usual C grade film cast. Other actors were booked but no reputed heroine was ready to work in his film. Those days, Bhagwan’s name was only associated with C grade action stunt films. Then one day he approached Geeta Bali. She agreed – a bit reluctantly – to listen to his story. After listening to the story, Geeta Bali realized the potential of a hit film and said yes.

The shooting of ‘Albela’ started but Bhagwan kept it a secret. After few weeks of shooting, he invited Anna (CR) to come to see the shooting, without telling him anything. Anna went to Jagriti studios to see the shooting. After some shots were taken, he asked, ‘Bhagwan, this is your film, but where are the fights?”. Bhagwan smiled and said,”Anna, there are no fights. This is a social film I am making which you wanted me to do. Now it is your turn to stand by what you had promised to give your best music”. Sure enough C Ramachandra gave immortal music to film ‘Albela’ and the rest is history as they say.

Bhagwan’s planning for ‘Albela’ was so perfect that he got the Censor Certificate on 13-12-1951 and the film was released on next day i.e. on 14-12-1951 at Imperial Talkies in Bombay. Within 3-4 days, the film became houseful in every show. It was so successful that it overshot the combined collection of first week opening of BR Chopra’s ‘Afsaana’, Raj Kapoor’s ‘Awaara’, Dev Anand’s ‘Baazi’, AVM’s ‘Bahaar’ and Nitin Bose’s ‘Deedaar’, all released in 1951 only!

The tremendous success of ‘Albela’ made the financiers, producers and directors to line up Bhagwan’s doorstep with project proposals. The success of ‘Albela’ had also gone to the head of Bhagwan dada. He did not realize or acknowledge the contribution of Geeta Bali and C Ramchandra’s music to its success. He thought that it was due to him and he went on signing film after films in that period. As his new films started failing, the incomplete films were abandoned and ‘Albela’ became his swan song. The downward slide of his career and popularity started right after this film, although some more films like ‘Bhagam Bhag’ (1956) etc were hits-again due to music and Kishore Kumar.

Anyway the producer NT Madnaney never ever tried to produce any more films after ‘Daamad’, which was not at all successful at the box office.
The screenplay and direction was by Brij Rani. There were 3 composers, Shamoo who had given music to ‘ Yeh hai zindagi-48’ and ‘Begunah’ (1949) with Haribhai. Indravadan Bhatt had given music to 10 films in the late 40s. Ram Panjwani had been an actor in Berozgaar-36 and Chhotisi duniya-39, a singer in Damad-51 and Maa ka pyar-49, an MD for Magroor-50 and Damad-51 and also a Lyricist for one song in film Teen Batti chaar Rasta-53

The story was more or less same as ‘Albela’ – a good for nothing fellow sings well and makes a fortune – that is the one line story of this film.

Chamak (Bhagwan) is too simple a person, who is a teacher in a school, where even his students make fun of him. He gets married to a rich man’s daughter-Geeta (Krishna Kumari). Chamak loses his job and his father-in-law takes him to his house in a bigger town. Chamak is impressed with all the wealthy living and eats like a hog and sleeps like a dog every day. Honored initially as the son-in-law of the house, slowly he is despised, insulted and treated shabbily by in laws for doing nothing.

One day when Chamak is singing alone, the manager of the local theatre hears him, gets impressed and offers him job of a singer. Chamak accepts it and in no time becomes a famous singer and tours all over India. Seeing that he is famous, his in laws start pampering him. Now Chamak has become clever. He teaches a lesson to his in laws and finally they realize their folly and all is well that ends well.

The cast of the film was Bhagwan, Krishna Kumari, Yashodhara Katju, Protima Devi, Cuckoo, Habib, Kathana, Ishu Jahagirdar etc. etc. The story and screenplay was by director Brijrani.

Brij Rani was born in 1921 at Shikarpur, Sindh province, in a well to do business family. She studied up to Matriculation and also qualified as a Middle School Teacher. However, she opted to join films as an actress. Her first film was Jeewan Jyoti-37, doing an un credited small role to get the feel, followed by Calcutta after Midnight-37, Aurat-40, Wayda-40, Ulti Ganga-42, Daughters of the Jungle-43, Bhagta Bhoot-43, Circus Girl-43 and Lal Haveli-44.

She was getting roles only in stunt films and C grade films. Being from a business community, she started her own company- Bharat productions and herself made stunt films.

Meanwhile she continued acting in films like Lal Haveli-44 and acted and directed film Circus King-46 and film Sajni-47. Then there was a gap. probably she looked after her family. In 1951, she directed film Daamaad-51.

As far as Yashodhara Katju is concerned, there is a bizarre story behind her entry into films. Earlier there was a Kashmiri girl working in Hindi films,in the late 30s. Her name was Shyama Zutshi. Actor Chandramohan too was a Kashmiri Bramhin and held the view that Kashmiri Bramhin girls should not work in films as it is below their dignity. He strongly opposed Shyama’s work in the films and put lot of pressure on her to quit films. Fed up of his pestering and also afraid of his anger, Shyama left films. Her last film was Khooni Jadugar-1939.

However, soon after this, yet another girl who too was a Kashmiri Bramhin came into films from 1941. Chandramohan tried all his pressure tactics and tried to force her out of the films, but this girl was different. She was tough and did not fear him or yield to his intimidations. She continued to work in films unabated. Chandramohan died in 1949, but this girl worked in films from 1941 to 1974. She worked in 86 films and earned quite a name.

Her name was Yashodhara Katju ( 15-4-1928 to 1974 ). She was the niece of Pt. Nehru, but never ever used her highly placed relations to get work. Her father K L Katju was U.P.’s well known politician and also a senior bureaucrat. They were from Lahore, where Yashodhara had studied upto Senior Cambridge and also dancing. She was a leading comedienne in the early 50s and had formed a pair with Gope for some films. She married a Navy officer and spent her retired life as a housewife, away from filmdom.

Today’s song is actually in 2 parts, but it is combined in one video. The singers are Sulochana kadam(for Yashodhara katju), Ram Panjwani (for Bhagwan), Ishu Jahagirdar (for Dhobi), and Shrimati Vishnilal ( for elderly lady). VISHNI LAL was born in Hyderabad( Sindh) in 1926. She came to Bombay in 1943 to sing in films. Ram Daryani recommended her to Khemchand Prakash and he gave a break to her in film Chiragh-43. She sang in very few films like Qurbani-43,Anjuman-48 Mitti ke khilaune-48,Maghroor-50,Daamaad-51,Chhoti Duniya-53 etc.

Her family shifted to Bombay in 1947, after Partition. She was married to a businessman Mansukhani. She then settled in Dubai, with her family.

Let us now enjoy the song video.

Blog Day : 3812 Post No. : 14810

Today, the December 25, 2018 is the Remembrance Day of music Director, Eric Roberts akka Vinod (22/05/1922 – 25/12/1959) who left for the heavenly abode on this day of 1959 at a prime age of 37. Vinod has been one of my favourite music directors who mostly followed the ‘Punjabi Ang’ of music, introduced in Hindi films by Pandit Amarnath. He composed top class melodies in Hindi and Punjabi films. His musical career started with ‘Khamosh Nighaaen’ (1946) and composed music for 28 Hindi films till his death in 1959.

Vinod came into prominence in his filmy musical career with his excellent song compositions in ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949). One of songs from this film laara lappa laara lappa laai rakhdaa became very popular. Both Mohammed Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar sang for Vinod for the first time in this film. Despite this success, he had to share music direction in a few subsequent films with other music directors. Most of such films failed at the box office despite his good music. With this kind of his filmy career, he joined the list of talented music directors who could not sustain their successes to reach in the top bracket of the music directors.

In 1949, music director Shankar-Jaikishan made a successful debut in ‘Barsaat’ (1949). S D Burman had his first major success as a music director in ‘Shabnam’ (1949). Both these music directors consolidated their positions in the Hindi film industry after their first success. One of the main reasons for their long successful careers, in my view, was that both of them were selective in choosing the films, that too from the top banners. As against these, Vinod, after the success of ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949), continued to be mostly associated with ‘B’ grade film banners. Though a few of such films were moderately successful, it was not enough to attract attention from the top banners. In Hindi film industry, if one gets branded as a music director of ‘B’ grade films, it is very difficult to get entry into the top banners.

A few select songs among others composed by Viond are listed below as my favourite:

Song Singer(s) Movie (year)
badla nazar aata hai Satish Batra-Premlata ‘Taara’ (1949)
ye shokh sitaare Lata-Rafi ‘Ek Thhi Ladki’ (1949)
taare wohi hain chaand wohi hai Lata ‘Anmol Ratan’ (1950)
kaaga re jaa re jaa re Lata ‘Wafa’ (1950)
nighaahon ko jab aa gayaa musukuraana Sulochana Kadam ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951)
mere barbaadiyon per muskuraane aa gaya koi Lata ‘Sabzbaagh’ (1951)
chupke se na jaa o man ke raaja Asha Bhonsle ‘Aag Ka Dariya’ (1953)
mere dil jhoom zara S Balbir ‘Mumtaz Mahal’ (1957)

Among the male playback singers, who sang for Vinod, Mohammed Rafi topped the list with 33 songs. Among the female playback singers singing for him, Asha Bhonsle took the honour of singing the maximum songs (82).

As a tribute to music director, Vinod, I have selected one of my favourite songs ‘ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do’ rendered by Asha Bhonsle for the film ‘For Ladies Only’ (1951). The film seems to have got delayed as I remember to have seen an advertisement of this film in an old film magazine of 1949 as ‘Titlee’. Probably, at the time of the censor certification, the name of the film was changed to ‘For Ladies Only’. The film was directed by Vedi. The star cast included Kuldeep Kaur, Kamal Mehra, Satish, Sadhana Bose, Rupa Verman etc.

There were 8 songs in the film with 6 lyricists and 8 playback singers. The song under discussion was written in a ghazal format by ‘Sharma’ which I presume to be Buta Ram Sharma. Narendra Sharma never wrote ghazals for the films and Kidar Sharma rarely wrote lyrics for other banners.


Song-Ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do (For Ladies Only)(1951) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do
ulfat ko phir hai kiska sahaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

bulbul chaman ko chhod bayabaan jaa rahe
bayabaan mein jaa rahen
kaise karoge tum ye gawaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

jinse thhi zindagi wo hi jab gair ho chale
jab gair ho chale
phir aur kaun hoga hamaara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

dil ro raha hai apni tasalli ke vaaste
tasalli ke vaaste
jaaye kahaan ye dard ka maara jawaab do
ashqon ka gar hai maut kinaara jawaab do

Here is the eighth and final song from “Do Sitaare”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

With this song, “Do Sitaare”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

When this year began, we were YIPPYing one movie every day and we maintained this new year resolution till end of march 2018. We had YIPPEED 92 movies in the first 92 days of this year before the enthusiasm seemingly wore off. We somehow kept on this exercise with gaps till april 2018. 111 movies were YIPPEED in the year till end of april 2018.

Ever since, the rate dropped off drastically. Today’s movie is only the tenth YIPPEED movie after April 2018 and the first YIPPEED movie for November 2018. It is the 1048th YIPPEED movie in the blog overall.

Nevertheless, it feels nice to be YIPPYing a movie again. And what a nice song to listen to for closing the account of “Do Sitaare”(1951). The song sounds like a quintessential “puraani film ka geet” that we so loved to listen to on radio till 1970s.

I came to know (from our whatsapp group messages) that today happens to be the birthday of our beloved Sudhir Jee. It is only yesterday that he had posted a message in the group which read-

Listening to 5 to 10 songs a day can improve memory, strengthen immune system, and reduce depression risk by 80 %.

We fully agree, and we in this blog are doing our bit to keep people healthy. 🙂 And our beloved Sudhir Jee, with his musical excavations, background researches and interesting writeups is keeping us in great and robust health.

I take this opportunity to wish him a very happy birthday and wish him many happy returns of the day. Have a great musical day when you get to listen to 5 to 10 songs, and may be even more. 🙂


Song-Idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya (Do Sitaare)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya

nazar se nazar ka hua saamna
nazar se nazar ka hua saamna
to dil ye pukaara mujhe thhaamna
to dil ye pukaara mujhe thhaamna
sambhaala to maine magar kho gaya
sambhaala to maine magar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya

meri unse yoonhi mulaaqaat thhi
meri unse yoonhi mulaaqaat thhi
kaho ji ye koi buri baat thhi
kaho ji ye koi buri baat thhi
ye dil ki khata hai agar kho gaya
ye dil ki khata hai agar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya ya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya udhar kho gaya
ye dil mera jaane kidhar kho gaya
idhar kho gaya

Song-Ek do dilon ka kaafila (Do Sitaare)(1951) Singer–Manna Dey, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

sada ek saath jaise do sitaare
rah nahin sakte ae
yoonhi mil kar kabhi do dil bechaare
rah nahin sakte

ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila
le ke sahaara pyaar ka
jeevan ke mele mein chala aa aa
jeevan ke mele mein chala
jeevan ke mele mein chala
ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila

ek doosre se thhi lagan
aapas mein donon thhe magan
baahon mein baahen daal ke
wo kaafila badhta gaya
ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila

manzil nazar aane lagi ee ee
manzil nazar aane lagi
ummeed muskaane lagi
par dekhte hi dekhte
zaalim andhera chha gaya
ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila

donon bichhad kar rah gaye
bahne thhe aansu bah gaye
ulfat ke is anjaam par
aankhon mein saavan chha gaya
ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila

ulfat ka haasil hai yahi
ee ee ee ee
ulfat ka haasil hai yahi
chaahat ki manzil hai yahi
ham tumse pahle ??
ye kafila loota gaya
ek do dilon ka kaafila
ek do dilon ka kaafila
