The year that was … “2020” … we have finally come to the end of ‘Year 2020’ which has shaken the whole world and while people are trying to come to normal, the pandemics’ ‘aftershocks’ and its ‘new improved stains’ are still threatening to harm the humanity further.

Our heart goes to those who have lost their lives, those who have struggled and those who have faced difficulties in the ‘pandemic period’.
From that point of view all of us, those who will see the morning of ‘2021,’ are fortunate and should express our gratitude to the almighty, well-wishers, family members and friends, and to all them who have been caring for each other and maintaining social discipline to help the country fight back to this calamity.

Life moves on … and for people like me and like-minded music lovers this blog has been the main sources of motivation where we visited and enjoyed music to give us that much needed ‘therapeutic’ relief to forget for some time the harsh realities of life and sometime making us philosophical to think over and give a fight back or even to do an introspection.

Here I would like to highlight one comment on the blog by our regular inspiration Shri Manohar Lal Dave ji.

Suddenly it seems ONE DAY match for SHANKAR JAIKISHAN because there was no such T20 in their time. Thanks to Avinash ji, Atul ji…With SJ nearing 1K mark, the trio of lyricist-singer-composer in a song will be achieved and the BLOG will be complete in a sense in this gloomy year 2020. It will be an achievement for SJ to touch 1k mark first which they justifiably deserve like Sunil Gavaskar touching 10K mark in test.

I do not know how many of us have read this above comment and how everybody of us had interpreted it. But, for me it is a very big comment and while it also shares ‘feelings’ of many like me, it’s also the love for this blog and its magic that we are looking for our daily motivation here.

Regulars on the blog are aware of my (our) love for the railways 😊 When I came back from Kenya last year I had so many plans to visit my Mother (in Maharashtra) and other relatives and gang-outs with our team members, and thus travelling by train and relive the experience of train journey (after a long gap). However, fortunately or unfortunately it could not happen. The one ‘mini gang-out’ chance was missed on account of my health issues and after that the ‘lockdown’ happened and train services were cancelled. Secondly, then I got a job and it turned out to be the ‘shortest tenure job’ of my career. Meanwhile health issues continued and after some time they became ‘mind issues’😊

During this time where everything was looking going wrong the only thing I was doing ‘right’ (or I was able to do it correctly) was contributing to the blog with write-ups and sharing songs. It was like a retired person life or semi-retired life for me. (sabbatical is the other word – ‘Doctor’s terminology 😊)
Well, I was daily praying to the almighty to bring my life on ‘track’. (मेरी गाड़ी को पटरी पर ला दो भगवान्). And as it so happened the almighty got me engaged indirectly in the ‘maintenance’ of ‘tracks’ for all. (or मैंने उपरवाले से प्रार्थना की थी के मेरी गाड़ी को पटरी पर ला दो भगवान्, पर भगवान् मुझे काम ही ऐसा दिया के मैं सब के लिए पटरियों के मरम्मत के काम में हाथ बटाऊँ).
While the first job was around 35-40 kms from my residence the second one is 50-55 kms away from the city. Travelling for the first job I have to cross a over bridge on a railway line near the satellite station of the city and I used to see trains coming and going from a longer distance.
But now I am getting to watch the ‘tracks’ daily with those beautiful ‘track maintenance machines’ (innovation of the technology). Secondly a railway line passes around this place so I can watch trains coming and going. That reminds me of all the ‘train songs’ from our movies and specially ‘gaadi bulaa rahi hai’, which is a source of inspiration and motivation and how accurate are the words in this song …

dekho wo rail,
bachchon ka khel,
seekho sabak jawaanon
sar pe hai bojh,
seene mein aag,
lab pe duaa hai jaano
phir bhi ye ja rahi hai,
naghmein suna rahi hai
gaadi bula rahi hai,
seetee bajaa rahi hai

This has become my daily inspiration and motivation now.

Another good thing happening at the end of the year was the pre-engagement function of elder daughter 😊 (Sahir’s song always playing in the back ground in my mind).

So, the year ‘2020’ is ending on a very happy note for me on both home and work fronts. At work I have taken a new challenge but the daily inspiration and motivation – the train – with me. I get to read this tagline ‘the journey continues … with many miles to go’ daily now and it reminds me that the journey is still on … my journey continues…

And, that is why the today’s song is a ‘train song’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Talat Mehmood. It is from the 1955 movie ‘Do Dulhe’. Lyrics are by Pandit Indra and music is composed by B.S. Kalla.

On screen it is performed by a male and a female actress whom I am unable to identify, however Shyama and Sajjan are also seen in the picturisation of this song.

I had come across this song more than two years back now, when there was a discussion about train songs on the ‘Whatsapp group’ of Atulites.

Lastly, I wish to add about the other love of our group that is ‘cricket’. The year ended on a happy note for India as our team scored a win over Australia. The ‘year-ending’ also reminds me of statistics like most ‘runs’ or ‘wickets’ and ‘run and wickets double’ in a single ‘calendar’ year. If the scores in single calendar year is to be considered with reference to ‘write-ups’ and/ or ‘lyrics’ shared will be interesting to know (tnih) for the artists (as well as the contributors) 😊

Let us now enjoy this philosophical train song …

जीवन की ई गाड़ी चलती है …

जीवन की गाड़ी चलती है

कभी सवेरा होता सुख का
दुःख की संध्या ढलती ई

आंसू और गीतों की दुनिया

गाड़ी चलती
जीवन की ई गाड़ी चलती

जीवन की गाड़ी चलती है
कुछ रूकती फिर चलती
जीवन की गाड़ी चलती गाड़ी चलती

Today’s song is from a B grade Costume drama film- Teerandaz-1955.

The music was from an A grade composer who was going downhill via B and C grade films and within 2 years’ time, would walk into a path leading to the end of a spectacular musical career – C. Ramchandra. With the strong competition from New blood composers lika Shankar Jaikishan, Madanmohan, O P Naiyyar and others, C Ramchandra was finding it difficult to maintain his leading position.

In 1955, C Ramchandra had actually 8 films on hand, out of which film Baap re Baap slipped out of his hands and went to O P Naiyyar, leaving him with only 7 films. They were Yasmin, Teerandaz, Pehli Jhalak, Lutera, Insaniyat, Duniya Gol hai and Azaad. As far as the film Baap re Baap is concerned, C Ramchandra had composed 3 songs ( 2 Asha solos and 1 Kishore solo) before quitting the film. The songs remained in the film ( since its shooting was already done), but commercial records were not issued. Effectively, all the 8 songs out of the total 11 songs were by Asha Bhosle ( because of O P Naiyyar, obviously).

Film Insaniyat had Dev Anand and Dilip Kumar (for the first and the last time) together in the lead. The film was made in Madras, where C Ramchandra was quite popular amongst the Madrasi producers. There was a trained monkey ‘ Zippy ‘ in the film ( Baburao Patel had said that Zippy’s acting was the best in the film ! ). The monkey was brought from Hollywood. Out of the 7 films in 1955, film Yasmin was C Ramchandra’s favourite film. He is on record saying that he had taken extra efforts for that film. However Yasmin songs did not become very popular as he had expected and even the film was not very successful. C Ramchandra was upset, more also because it was made by Musical Pictures, a joint venture by Lata and C Ramchandra !

Film Teerandaz had only 6 songs and as expected all were Lata songs ( like all Asha songs in O P Naiyyar films). In 1956 C Ramchandra had only 3 films, in 1957 5 films. This was also the year when there was a rift and separation of C Ramchandra and Lata. Consequently, succeeding 3 years, C Ramchandra had only 4, 2 and 3 films. His downfall gained momentum.

The film was directed by H.S.Rawail. Harnam Singh Rawail aka H.S.Rawail was born in Lyallpur,Punjab, British India on 21-8-1921 and moved to Mumbai to aspire to be a filmmaker. Here he wrote lyrics for films, Veer kesari-38, Na hone wali baat-38 and Yaad rahe-40. Later, he moved to Calcutta where he wrote several film scripts and debuted as a director with Dorangia Daaku -1940. His three consecutive films; Shukriya-1944, Zid-1945 and Jhoothi Kasmen -1948; were commercial failures. His next film Patanga-49 was successful and was the seventh highest grossing Bollywood film of 1949. The film is still remembered for the song “Mere Piya Gaye Rangoon” sung by Shamshad Begum.

Later, Rawail’s nine consecutive films from 1949 till 1956 did not perform well at the box office. In March 1956, Rawail started with two new projects, Chaalbaaz with Meena Kumari and Baazigar with Vyjayantimala. Both the films were dropped eventually. However, in 1958 director Nanabhai Bhatt revived both the projects starring Nirupa Roy, Jairaj and a Dog- Tiger. Chitragupta was the MD for both films. Chaalbaaz-58 was a Stunt film and Baazigar a Costume Drama. Rawail took three years sabbatical and returned in 1959 with a comedy film Shararat, starring Raaj Kumar, Kishore Kumar and Meena Kumari. The film was not a commercial success along with his next two films, Roop ki Rani Choron ka Raja-61, starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman and Kanch ki Gudia -63 starring Manoj Kumar. But the film brought recognition to Manoj Kumar after having starred in various unsuccessful films before.

Rawail’s major success came with 1963 musical film Mere Mehboob starring Rajendra Kumar and Sadhana Shivdasani. Kumar had earlier worked as an assistant director to Rawail. The film was praised for Rawail’s direction and is remembered for the title song composed by music director Naushad and performed by singers Mohammad Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar. His next film Sunghursh -68 was based on a novel written by the Bengali author Mahashweta Devi. The film was set in the 19th century and showcased the lives of bandits. It was praised for the “exceptional performances” by its actors like Dilip Kumar, Vyjayanthimala, Balraj Sahni, Sanjeev Kumar and Jayant. The actor-director Rajesh Roshan had worked as an assistant director on the film.

His next film Mehboob ki Mehndi -71, featuring Rajesh Khanna and Leena Chandavarkar performed average at the box office but was recognised for its music composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. However, his 1976 film Laila Majnu, starring Rishi Kapoor and Ranjeeta Kaur in lead roles, became a huge blockbuster. Rawail’s last film as director Deedar-E-Yaar -82 was a commercial failure with which he took sabbatical from the film industry. He directed,in all, 22 films.

His son Rahul Rawail is also a film director and is best known for films like Love story -81, Betaab-83, and Anjaam-94. He paid a tribute to his father’s “best work”Sunghursh -68 by titling one of his film as Jeevan Ek Sanghursh -90.Rawail’s grandson Bharat Rawail is an upcoming director, who recently assisted Yash Chopra for his last film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012). Rawail died on 17 September 2004 at the age of 83 in Mumbai.(adapted from Wiki, with thanks).

What makes a film successful ? So far, no one has got the answer. We have seen Big star films flopped and ordinary films like Jai Santoshi Maa-75 doing record business. That is why, maybe, producers try various tricks like taking 2-3 heroes, 2-3 heroines, a battery of Comedians etc. Film Teerandaz had 2 Heroes-Jairaj and Ajit, 2 heroines- Madhubala, and Kuldeep kaur and 3 Comedians, Gope, Sundwer and kumud Tripathi. It also had 3 dancers-Helen , Kammo and Mohana. Even Madhubala’s sister Chanchal had a song in it. Despite all this, the film did not do well.

As far as Kumaud Tripathi is concerned, he joined the films as a Lyricist and wrote songs for films Rimjhim-49, Bijli-50, Sandesh-52, Jeevan Sathi-57 and Nai zindagi-51. Then he became a comedian. His role in the film Apradhi-57 kaun was the best among his 73 films. After films, he joined TV serials. His role as Guptaji, General store owner in serial Nukkad was much appreciated. In his initial days, he shared a cottage in Bandra slum along with Sunil Dutt and Rajendra Kumar.

Comedian Sunder Singh aka Sunder was born in Sialkot, Punjab in August 1916. His father was working in Madon Theatres, Calcutta. Sunder also started working there. Initially, for a long period,he did Girl’s roles. Once his work was seen by H.S.Rawail (Director in later life). He was quite impressed. Later Rawail started working with R.N.Vaidya as his assistant in direction.Meanwhile Sunder started working in Talkie films. His first film,where he was credited, was ” Na honewali baat”-38. Before that, Rawail and Vaidya were preparing to make the film Banke Sipahi-37.Rawail recommended Sunder and Vaidya gave him an uncredited small role in that film.

Sunder and Rawail became good friends and started staying in one flat in Calcutta. After a few films here, they both went to Lahore and Sunder got the Hero’s role in the film ” Shukriya”-44. There were 4 Heroines in the film- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manorama and Raksha. Sunder’s role in this film was that of a young man from a village and Ramola was from a City. Sunder’s one song from this film-‘ Nayanon ke teer chala gayee ek shehar ki laundiya’ became very popular all over India, However the song was banned in Punjab due to its lyrics. After this they both came back to Calcutta.

His next film was Albeli-45, in which too there were 4 Heroines- Ramola, Rooplekha, Manoram and Usha. In the 40’s , Sunder acted in many films like Arabian Nights, Baap, Shabri, Chandrashekhar, Ek aurat, Grihalaxmi, Lottery, Samapti, Jhoothi kasme, Savyasachi, Do baaten, Shadi ke baad, Bawra, Khiladi, Nai Bhabhi etc. In Calcutta, Sunder got married to a girl from his community. Rawail left for Bombay. After a few months, Sunder also returned to Bombay.

Rawail was very happy to get him back and gave him roles in almost all of his films. Not only Rawail, but also J.Om Prakash, Mohan Kumar, Lekhraj Bhakri, Manoj kumar etc gave him roles in their all films and he became a busy actor. He was at one time, in great demand. He was quite popular due to his nature.In the decade of 50’s he did 88 films, which increased in the 60s and 70s. In the 80s however films came haltingly.

From singing Hero, he became a Junior artiste( extra), in presence of the new crop of actors. The role of comedians was on decline, as Heroes like Amitabh and others did comedy scenes themselves. His health started troubling him. His last film was probably Bahurani-89. He became ill for a long time and finally died on 5-3-1992. Sunder acted in 436 films. He was a good singer and sang his own songs in early cinemas. In all, Sunder sang 40 songs in 25 films. ( Thanks to Harish Raghuwanshi ji for material for adaptation.)

The story of film Teerandaz-55 was about a masked Teerandaz who supports the oppressed janta against a Tyrant Senapati. The Teerandas is a girl- Madhubala. there were only 6 songs, out of which 2 are already posted. let us now enjoy the third song by Lata and chorus.

Chorus

Lyrics

rehti nahin hamesha ye chaand ki jawaani

“Kundan”(1955) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Om Prakash, Baby Naaz, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Jeevan, Sadat Ali, Kumkum etc in it.

The movie was based on Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Miserables” which was adapted for this Hindi movie by Pt Sudarshan.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Kundan”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

The song is picturised as a background song as Sohrab Modi is shown going far away from the home of Murad (as far as I can tell from the picturisation). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part IX: Year 1955
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, we arrive at the tenth year of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in Hindi movies. She completed a decade of playback singing in HFM this year. She had already notched some firsts in HFM playback singing that did not get noticed at that time. For instance, she had become the first playback singer ever to sing more than one thousand songs in Hindi movies by 1954. She kept setting benchmarks that others could only dream of.

Statistically, this was the second most prolific year ever d]for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 218 songs, which was just 5 songs fewer than her all time record of 223 songs that she had set in 1951.

In 1955, she gave playback in 50 movies. To put things in perspective, 120 movies were released in 1955 and they contained 1016 songs. So Lata Mangeshkar gave plaback in 42 % of the movies released in 1955 and her voice appeared in 22 % of the songs created that year !

In 1955, Lata Mangeshkar worked with 31 music directors and 32 lyricists. She worked with nine music directors for the first time this year. They were Amarnath, B D Burman, Chitragupta, Jagmohan Sursagar, Jaidev, Manohar Arora, N Datta, Ravi and S Mohinder. This yaer, she worked with seven lyricists for the first time. They were Arshi Ajmeri, Raj Baldev Raj, Meera Bai, Pt Madhur, Nigar, Ravi and Sartaj.

By the end of 1955, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 1344 songs in 326 movies. The blog contains 1110 of these songs. This year, she became the first playback singer to sing over one thousand solo songs in Hindi movies. By the end of 1955, she had worked with 79 Music directors and 106 lyricists. That way, she completed a century of lyricists as well.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1955 :

One can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang in 50 movies that were released in 1955. All Lata Mangeshkar songs have been covered in 24 of these movies. So we only have 26 movies left from which Lata Mangeshkar songs can still be covered.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955). This movie was produced and directed by Leela Chitnis to launch the career of her son Ajeet Chitnis. The movie had Ajeet Chitnis, Uday, Chitra, Bipin Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Leela Chitnis etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog. The movie had three Lata solos. One of these songs has been covered.

Here is the second Lata song from “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar is penned by Raj Baldev raj (working with Lata Mangeshkar for the first time). Snehal Bhatkar is the music director.

A very nice song, appearing fresh as daisy. I listened to this song for the first time only just now. A forgotten gem of a song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

“Albeli”(1955) was produced and directed by Devendra Goel for Fils and Television, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Pradeep Kumar, Johny Walker,Randheer, Rama Sharma, Brij, Ranjana Shukla, Tuntun, Om Prakash, Yogendra, Robin Kumar, Raje Kapoor, Meena, Gareeb Kumar, Kaiser Usmani, Ranjeet etc, with guest appearances by Shankar A Palav, Jankidas and Madan Puri.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the sixth song from “Albeli”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hemant Kumar. Raviis the lyricist as well as music director.

Hemant Kumar is normally associated with serious songs in our imagination. But here he gets to sing a “bewda” song, much like songs viz Zindagi khwaab hai (Jaagte Raho), Mujhko yaaron maaf karna main nashe mein hoon (Main Nashe Mein Hoon) and main nashe mein hoon (Do Gunde).

This song, sung by Hemant Kumar is older than the abovementioned songs.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this rare song.


Song-Ham to pee ke chale (Albeli)(1955) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Ravi, MD-Ravi

ham to

ab to apni bala se ae duniya jale
ham to

ab to apni bala se ae duniya jale ae
ye jaane mohabbat to mile na mile ae
ham to
hmm
pee ke chale
ab to apni bala se ae duniya jale

tamanna nahin koi
aarzoo nahin koi
nahin koi gham
chaahe jiye ya mare koi
yahi hai ki bas thhodi kal phir mile ae ae
ham to
hmm
pee ke chale
ab to apni bala se ae duniya jale ae
ye jaane mohabbat to mile na mile ae
ham to
hmm
pee ke chale

ye maana zamaane ke qaabil nahin hoon main
nashe mein to hoon lekin gaafil nahin hoon main
to phir hamse duniya kyun bach ke chale ae
ham to
hmm
pee ke chale

hai saaqi nahin koi
hai mehfil nahin koi
ajab ye safar
jiski manzil nahin koi
chala hoon jidhar ye kadam le chale ae ae
ham to
hmm
pee ke chale
ab to apni bala se ae duniya jale ae
ye jaane mohabbat phir mile na mile ae ae

Today’s song is from the film Chingari-1955. There were 4 films made with the same title – in 1940, 1955, 1988 and 2006. There was a dubbed film with a title ” Chingari Jawani” in 2003. I am still trying to understand its meaning !

During the second world war period many commodities like Petrol, Kerosene,foods as well as Raw film for making films went into shortage. Most essential items were controlled by the British government. The supply of raw film especially affected the film industry. Depending on the past history of making films by the film makers,” Quota “s were fixed at Government rates. Also, the govt. started a scheme of ” war effort promotion films”. Those films which promoted British efforts for the war in some way or the other, used to get extra Raw film supply at control rates. Many producers took advantage of this scheme and films like ” Panna”-44 and ” Badi Maa”-45 etc were made as ” War effort Promotion films” and got more Raw films.

When there is a shortage of anything, its Black Marketing is rampant. In India too, black market of Raw film, Petrol, sugar, even Rice and wheat prospered making the black marketeers prosperous. Some of the Black money flowed into film production as Finance. The result was, the films lost their purpose and quality as new financiers provided production money and interfered in selection of actors, MDs etc. During the period 1940 to almost early 50’s, these financers with black money made films at their will. Not all financers interfered. Actually most of them wanted to double their money investments. Some rich financers tried their hand at directing the films, without much experience. It was in this period that the Distributors started deciding film stories, singers, actors,directors etc, as they provided advance money for film production.

Why I am writing about all this is, during my years of writing on old films, I have come across strange names as film producers and directors. They appeared once and then disappeared for ever.Obviously they were the ‘ Curious Cats’ who wished to be a part of the films which they financed. Today’s film ‘ Chingari-55’ also is one of this category. This film was produced and directed by one S.Srivastava – a name I never came across earlier or after this film ! This film was planned somewhere in 1952-53, because all its songs were recorded in Jan-Feb 1953. That time this film was titled ” Paraya Ghar”. However, the film was delayed by a couple of years and with a new title ” Chingari” it was censored on 22-3-1955. It was released on 8-4-1955 at the Central Cinema and the film ran for just 3 weeks there.

The music of this film was by ” Manohar”. This name has caused ‘ Same name Confusion’. Manoharlal Khanna(father of Usha Khanna,MD) was also a Music director – though for only one film-Pamposh-54 and another was Manohar Sonik or Master Sonik (one of the Sonik-Omi composer duo). For many years these names got mixed up and no one knew who was who. The composer MANOHAR ARORA was a Punjabi music director who came from Sialkot to try his luck in Bombay. His first film was ‘Raees’-1948. Then came Josh-50, Rangeele Musafir-50,Bhoole Bhatke-52, Jingo-52, Usha kiran-52. His best remembered film was Chingari-55. Then came passing show-56, Mister Q-58, Dr. Z-59, Choron ki Baarat-60 and last film was Do dushman-67.

His name is mostly written as ” Manohar” only. This created a misunderstanding that he was Manoharlal Sonik,which is NOT correct.

The cast of the film was Nalini Jayawant, Shekhar, Pran, Leela Mishra, Sunalini Devi etc etc. Though I have seen many films of Nalini Jayawant, I remember her role only in “Hum sab chor hain”-56, which was loosely based on a similar story of film ‘ Ek thi Ladki’-49, with some changes like twin sisters lost in childhood (in Kumbh Mela ?). Nalini Jayawant’s life story is a lesson for those who make immature decisions-only to regret later. Fortunately, she came out of her blunder of marrying Virendra Desai ( a much married man of 32 years) at her age of just 17 years, albeit with some scratches and loss of 5 years of young life.

Nalini Jaywant (18 February 1926 – 20 December 2010) was an Indian film actress who appeared in Hindi films in the 1940s and 1950s.
Nalini Jaywant was born in Bombay (now Mumbai) in 1926. She was first cousin of actress Shobhna Samarth, the mother of actresses Nutan and Tanuja. Since 1983, she lived mostly a reclusive life.

She was married to director Virendra Desai in the year 1943. They divorced in 1948. Later, she married her second husband, actor Prabhu Dayal,in 1960 with whom she acted in several movies. Prabhudayal died in 2001.

The marriage with Virendra Desai ( who was 15 years elder to her) and the next 5 years were quite traumatic for Nalini. This marriage only gave suffocation and wastage of 5 years of her teen age and the opportunities of working in films. More than her, Virendra Desai suffered due to this marriage. His mother Nandgauri, a tough lady, announced a family boycott on him and never again she spoke to him. Even when she was on death bed and Virendra had gone to meet her, she refused to talk to him. His wife and 3 children also treated him in aloof manner, like a stranger. His career was destroyed and he never came out of this situation.

In her teens, she appeared in Mehboob Khan’s Bahen (1941), a film about a brother’s obsessive love for his sister. Nalini finally broke through with Anokha Pyar (1948). The film was a love triangle with Nalini, Dilip Kumar and Nargis, with Nalini sacrificing her love for the hero, Dilip Kumar. It is to her credit that it was she who got the best reviews in the film, many critics calling her the only saving grace in the otherwise disappointing film.

1950 was Nalini’s big, big year as she became a top star with two of her films opposite Ashok Kumar, Samadhi and Sangram. Samadhi was a patriotic drama addressing Subash Chandra Bose and the Indian National army. Nalini and Kuldip Kaur played sisters who were spies for the British. The film, though called politically obsolete by leading film magazine of the day, Filmindia, was a huge success at the box office, its song Gore Gore O Banke Chhore being perhaps Nalini’s most popular song ever. On the other side of the spectrum, Sangram was a gritty crime drama wherein she played the heroine doing her best to reform the anti-hero. Nalini more than left her mark on both the films and went on to form a hit pair with Ashok Kumar, the two of them doing several films together thereafter like Kafila (1952), Naubahar (1952), Saloni (1952), Mr X and Sheroo (1957). It is said the two of them were romantically involved for a period as well.

Nalini remained an important leading lady through to the mid 1950s. Filmmakers like KA Abbas (Rahi-53), Ramesh Saigal (Shikast-53 – arguably her career’s best performance opposite Dilip Kumar, Railway Platform and Zia Sarhady (Awaaz) extended Nalini Jaywant’s association with realistic and socialistic films while filmmakers like Mahesh Kaul (Naujavan (1951)) and AR Kardar (Jaadu) developed her alternate musical persona, later personified by the frothy Filmistan musicals like Nastik, her biggest hit opposite Ajit, and Munimji, a carefree romantic film with Dev Anand as her leading man.

Perhaps Nalini’s last big, successful film was the Raj Khosla directed Kala Pani (1958). She gave one of the best performances of her career as the nautch girl Kishori who is the key witness in framing the hero’s father for a murder he did not commit. Playing a shaded character, she easily stole a march over goody-two-shoes heroine Madhubala and deservedly went on to win the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film. She is absolutely unforgettable in the film be it in the come-hither mujra Nazar Laage Raja Tore Bangle pe or as she looks tearfully at Dev Anand from across the room in that all time great SD Burman composition, Hum Bekhudi Mein.

Nalini remained an important leading actress through the mid-1950s, appearing in such films as Rahi (1953), Shikast (1953), Railway Platform (1955)), Nastik (1954), Munimji (1955), and Hum Sab Chor Hain (1956). The 1958 film Kala Pani, directed by Raj Khosla, was Nalini’s last successful movie. Bombay Race Course (1965) was the last film she made before retirement. After 18 years, she returned as a character actress in Nastik-83 which marked her last film appearance.

Nalini acted in 64 films. She also sang 41 songs in 10 films. Her last song was in the film Chingari-55. She worked in 10 films with actor Ajit and in 11 films with Ashok kumar.

Nalini Jaywant died lonely on 20 December 2010, aged 84, at her bungalow of 60 years at Union Park, Chembur, Mumbai, India. The death was not noticed by anyone until an ambulance carried her body after 3 days of her passing away. The neighbours reported that she had secluded herself from society and had not been meeting people after her husband’s death. Her relatives were also not in touch with her for long.
(based on information from wikipedia, Upperstall, and book “Sagar Movietone” by Biren Kothari ji with thanks.)

While the film Chingari had the last song sung by Nalini Jayawant, this was also the last film of actress Sunalini Devi, who after doing 56 films, retired from films and got married. Incidentally, she was the sister of Sarojini Devi Naidu and actor Harindranath Chatopadhyaya.
The songs of Chingari-55 were very good. Today’s song is also a good one. It is also one of the few songs with ‘Anokhe Bol’, sung by Lata and an unknown male voice. Enjoy…..

Some years back, I recall having seen for the first time on the internet the photo features of Hindi film stars such as Madhubala, Nalini Jaywant and Begum Para in ‘Life’ magazine. These photographs were taken by the magazine’s well known photographer, James Burke in 1951 who was posted in India.  From the standard of 1951, these photographs would have ranked as bold. But one more actress also featured in that magazine – the featured photos were bolder than those of the stars I mentioned earlier. Subsequently, I had also seen her images appearing in ‘Filmindia’ magazines of 1948 and 1949. The actress in the photoshoot of 1951 was Mohana Cabral.

Today, September 11th is the 30th Remembrance Day of Mohana Cabral who died of heart attack this day of the year 1990 in France where she had been staying with her husband and daughter since 1986.

Mohana Cabral (03/02/1929 – 11/09/1990) whose real name was Mona Cabral, was born in Socorro in Bardez taluqa of North Goa in Konkani speaking Christian family. In early 1930s, the family shifted to Bombay (Mumbai) when her father changed his job to Bombay-based Hindustan Construction Company. Mohana did her initial schooling at Victoria High School in Mahim. Later. she was put in a boarding school in Pune where she completed her high school.  In Pune, she joined as a telephone operator in a telephone company. It is through connecting the long distance telephone calls that Mohana got acquainted with some of the film stars of that time including Nargis, Begum Para and Pratima Dasgupta.

Mohana got introduced to Kishore Sahu who offered her a role in his film ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949) which was her debut film though ‘Aag’ (1948) was released first without her name being accredited in the film.  Kishore Sahu changed her name from Mona to screen name, Mohana which got attached with her during the rest of her life not only in films but also in the Konkani plays and singing career.

Sometime in 1948, Mohana got involved with Konkani ‘Tiatr’ in Mumbai. (‘Tiatr’ is a Portuguese word used in Goa for ‘theatre’ for the Konkani dramas encompassing music, dance, and singing. In a way, it is akin to Marathi ‘Sangeet Natak or musical dramas). Her debut Konkani drama was ‘Cortub Avoichem’ (1948) which was directed by the pioneer of Goan Konkani Tiatr, C Alvares, the producer, director, actor, song writer and the singer. In fact, Alvares was instrumental in encouraging girls to play the female roles in his dramas and introduced Mohana and her younger sister, Ophelia. In 1952, Mohana got actively involved with Konkani tiatr in Mumbai, mostly collaborating with C Alvares as an actor-singer and worked in about a dozen plays. Both the sisters were actor-singers in Konkani Tiatr in Mumbai and later in Goa. In fact, in Goa, Mohana is known more as a tiatrist than the Hindi film actress.

In 1951, Mohana met Edward Downing, a Royal Indian Air Force pilot in a hotel where the shooting of her film ‘Sansaar’ (1951) was in progress. They got married in 1951 and had a son, Mark. Unfortunately, her husband died in a plane accident in less than two years of their marriage. In 1955, Mohana got married for the second time with John D’frates who was working for the United Nations and got posted at Beirut.  With this posting, Mohana bid adieu to Hindi film industry. Her last shoot was for the film, ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

In Beirut, Mohana learnt Arabic and began producing dance programmes for Television. She also acted in a couple of dramas on Television. After spending many years in Beirut, her husband got posting in Vienna from where he retired in 1986. Post retirement, Mohana and her family settled in France. Mohana was very much interested in Goan Konkani Tiatr. She would regularly visit India on holidays and act in Konkani dramas in Goa. During the period of her visits, she had also cut a few discs of her non-filmy Konkani songs, some with her mentor, C Alvares.

Mohana died of a heart-attack in France on September 11, 1990 when she was 61. [Thanks for the inputs from Shishir Sharma’s Blog, ‘Beete Hue Din’ on Mohana posted on May 13, 2015 and an article in ‘The Navhind Times, Panaji, Goa dated April 6, 2020].

It is interesting to note from her filmography that how quickly Mohana established herself in Hindi film industry. In ‘Aag’ (1948), she had one song role though her first debut film was ‘Saawan Aaya Re’ (1949). In 1949, she had acted in as many as 6 films. 1950 was a blank year for her as probably she got associated with Konkani plays in Mumbai. In 1951 and 1952 she did 5 films each. 1953 and 1954 was again lean years for her. In 1955, she did 4 films before quitting the film industry. In all, she acted in 26 films in her short span of 6 years in the film industry. The full filmography of Mohana is given below:

1948: Aag.
1949: Chaar Din, Jagriti, Kamal, Patanga, Rimjhim, Saawan Aaya Re.
1951: Adaa, Naadaan, Nageena, Sagaai, Sansaar.
1952: Aashiana, Chham Chhama Chham, Najaria, Saloni, Saaqi.
1953: Shole.
1954: Danka, Dost, Shart.
1955: Insaaniyat, Marine Drive, Sau Ka Note, Teerandaz.
1956: Taksaal.

I had noticed in the advertisements of films for which she worked in 1949-50 that  her name was written either in bold or capital letters. That shows that Mohana was popular among the audience of that time and her name mattered for the success of the films. In most of her films, she got roles of a ‘side kick’ to the comedians like Gope, Agha and as a singer-dancer.  Her popularity can be gauged from the fact that in most of her films, Mohana will have at least one song picturised on her. Some of the songs picturised on her for which video clips are available for watching are listed below:

Raat ko ji haay raat ko ji chamke taare – ‘Aag’ (1948)

Pyaar ke jahaan ki niraali sarkaar hai – ‘Patanga’ (1949)

My my my my my dear – ‘Nageena’ (1951)

O baabu kaise dil karoon qaaboo – ‘Sagaai’ (1951)

Lucknow chalo ab raani – ‘Sansaar’ (1951)

Haseena sambhal sambhal ke chal – ‘Saaqi’ (1952)

O madam do se ho gaye ek ham – ‘Aashiana’ (1952)

Dil mera hai deewaana – ‘Shart’ (1954)

Mohana has also rendered two songs on herself in the film ‘Rimjhim’ (1949).

On the occasion of Mohana’s 30th Remembrance Day, I present a song “Aisi Nainwa Ki Laagi Kataar” from ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955) rendered by Mohammed Rafi and Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Rajinder Krishan which is set to music by C Ramchandra. The song is picturised on Mohana as a part of a ploy to wood wink a soldier to stripe out his uniform to be used for disguising Mangal (Dilip Kumar) as soldier to gain access to the prison to facilitate the release of Bhanupratap (Dev Anand).

In the video clip, there are only two stanzas where as the audio clip contains the full song of four stanzas. This is the 10th song to appear on the Blog out of 17 songs in ‘Insaaniyat’ (1955).

aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar

nainon mein lagaaun tohe kajara banaay ke
manwa ki dibiya mein rakh loon chhupaay ke
nainon mein lagaaun tohe
nainon mein lagaaun tohe kajara banaay ke
manwa ki dibiya mein rakh loon chaupaay ke
jataao na itna pyaar

haan haan kare surar surar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar

aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar

dekho na dekho mohe tirchi nazar se
darr mohe laage tori patli kamar se
dekho na dekho mohe
dekho na dekho mohe tirchi nazar se
darr mohe laage tori patli kamar se
dekhi jab ke suratiya tohaar
kamar mori ghumar ghumar
haan haan kare ghumar ghumar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
 
main tori bulbul tu mora kaaga
kaage se bulbul ka taanka hai laaga
main tori bulbul
main tori bulbul tu mora kaaga
kaage se bulbul ka taanka hai laaga
aa ja chalen ghataaon ke paar
udd jaayen furar furar
haan haan jaayen purur purur
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar
aisi nainwa ki laagi kataar
jiya kare khusar fusar
haan haan kare khusar fusar

Today 20th August is the thirty-sixth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of music director Avinash Vyas ((21 July 1912 – 20 August 1984). On this occasion here is a song from ‘Jagadguru Shankaracharya-1955’ sung by Hemant Kumar and composed by Avinash Vyas. Lyrics are by Bharat Vyas ji.

After getting associated with this blog I had got many opportunities to listen and share the songs composed by Avinash Vyas ji.

I was not aware of his work or rather his great work to the contribution of Hindi Cinema and Gujarati Cinema and Non-Film music in Gujarati. During the preparation of this post I came across this article by A.M. Vaishnav ji on ‘songs of yore’ here and also there I found comments by our Arun ji giving a brief about Avinash Vyas ji which I am reproducing below;

His full name was AVINASH ANANDRAI VYAS. His wife Sulochana Vyas was a singer and son Gaurang was/is a Music Director.
He was a multifaceted personality. he was a composer, lyricist, playback singer and writer too. In fact, he has written 75 Dance Ballets, in few of which Asha Parekh has also danced. he published 6 books in Gujrati, the last being” Vartul”-1983.
he gave music to 53 Hindi and 175 Gujrati films and 1 Rajasthani film. he got Gujrat Govt awards 10 times. The Sangeet Natak Academy of Gujrat gave him an award. He was given Padmashree in 1970. he made 8 Foreign stage shows. he had acted in a Gujrati film,” Gorakhdhanda”-1949.
His most famous film Har har Mahadev-1950 is also my favourite one.
Though neglected in Hindi, he was honoured suitably in Gujrat, in his life time.

Additional information-
Avinash Vyas collaborated with great songwriters like Qamar Jalalabadi, Madan, Prem Dhawan, Pradeep Patel, Gopal Singh Nepali, Badrinath Vyas, Sadiq Lakhnavi, Devendra, Pt. Sagar, Indeevar, Nilkanth Tiwari, Sagar Husain, Qamar Jalalabadi, Kavi Pradeep, Saraswati Kumar Deepak, Bharat Vyas, B. P. Bhargav, Raja Nene, Ramesh Gupta, Shamim Jaipuri, Indra Chandra, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, Pt. Mukhram Sharma, Pt. Madhur and Ramesh Shastri.
Avinash’s compostitions were sung by the melodious voices of great singers like Mohammed Rafi, Suman Hemadi Kalyanpur, Anand Kumar Chitragupta, Badrinath Vyas, Dilraj Kaur, Sulochana Kadam, Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Geeta Dutt, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood, Kishore Kumar, Meena Kapoor, Ameerbai Karnataki, Krishna Kalle, Mahendra Kapoor, Madhubala Zaveri, , Mohan Tara, Lata Mangeshkar, Sudha Malhotra, S. Balbir, Husn Ara, Kavi Pradeep and Usha Mangeshkar.

I am sure Arun ji must have written in details about Avinash Vyas ji on this blog too, but I have to find and read that post.

In my childhood I must have watched many black & white Hindi movies where music was composed by Avinash Vyas, unaware of who the music director was. However, the song ‘tere dwaar khadaa bhagwaan’ from ‘Waaman Avtaar-1955’ is my all-time favorite and I would also like to mention the songs from ‘Chakradhaari-1954’ which I watched during my stay at Nagpur (exactly four years back around this time i.e. 15/16 August’2016) where I liked all the wonderful songs this movie has.

Paying our tributes to the music director Avinash Vyas today, let us now listen to today’s song …


Song-Bade bade dhoondhhe pahaad aur kan mein dhoondhna bhool gaye (Jagadguru Shankaracharya)(1955) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

bade bade dhoondhe pahaad
aur kan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
kan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae

bade bade dhoondhe pahaad
aur kan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
bhole bhakt bhagwaan ko apne
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye
bade bade dhoondhe pahaad
aur kan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye
bhole bhakt bhagwaan ko apne
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae

bade bade pothe padh padh ke
bante ho vidwaan
raamaayan mahaabharat dhoondhi
dhoondhe ved puraan
dhoondhe ved puraan
par apne saans ki chhoti si
dhadkan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye
bhole bhakt bhagwaan ko apne
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye

saanjh savere jamunaa jal se
ragad ragad tan dhote
aur use dhoondhne
ganga ji mein lagaa rahe ho gotey ae ae
lagaa rahe ho gotey
par kisi deen ki ankhiyan ke
ansuwan mein dhoondhna bhool gaye
bhole bhakt bhagwaan ko apne
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye
bade bade dhoondhe pahaad
aur kan mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye
bhole bhakt bhagwaan ko apne
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye ae
man mein dhoondhnaa bhool gaye

बड़े बड़े ढूंढे पहाड़
और कण में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
कण में ढूंढना भूल गए ए

बड़े बड़े ढूंढे पहाड़
और कण में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
भोले भक्त भगवान् को अपने
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए

बड़े बड़े ढूंढे पहाड़

बड़े बड़े पोथे पढ़ पढ़ के
बनते हो विद्वान्
रामायण महाभारत ढूंढी
ढूंढें वेद पुराण
ढूंढें वेद पुराण
पर अपने सांस की छोटी सी
धड़कन में ढूंढना भूल गए
भोले भक्त भगवान् को अपने
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए

सांझ सवेरे जमुना जल से
रगड़ रगड़ तन धोते
और उसे ढूंढने
गंगा जी में लगा रहे हो गोते ए
लगा रहे हो गोते
पर किसी दीन की अंखियन के
अंसुवन में ढूंढना भूल गए
भोले भक्त भगवान् को अपने
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए
बड़े बड़े ढूंढे पहाड़
और कण में ढूंढना भूल गए
भोले भक्त भगवान् को अपने
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए ए
मन में ढूंढना भूल गए
