“Daaku”(1955) was directed by Aspi Irani for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Shashikala, Kuldip Kaur, Anwar Hussain, Maya Das, Babu Raaje, Sheikh, Naagpal, Michael,Habib, Gulnar,
Wazir Muhammad Khan, Azoori, Iqbal, Adib etc with Sulochana in guest role.

“Daaku”(1955) had six songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Daaku”(1955) to appear in the blog. HFGK mentions the singer as ust “mahila swar”. Listening to the voice, it is clear that Asha Bhonsle is the singer. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

Prakashchandra, who sent the lyrics of the song and other details is not sure about the identity of the female dancer. He guesses her to be Maya Das.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer.

This Week, That Year – 11
———————————–
10Jul – 16Jul, 2012

Wow wo
Those were the days, I am sure Atul ji would be remembering with relish. Or may be, he may himself not be believing the pace that was the norm in those days, This week, 10 years ago saw a whopping 46 songs posted. That works out to be an average of a tad over 6.5 songs per day. Ah yes, those were days.

And talking about ‘those were the days. . .’, I came across this very interesting exchange in the comment section of the first song of that week. The post was number 6206, the first one to be posted on the 1453rd day of the blog. The featured song is “Na Wo Hamse Judaa Honge” from the 1949 film ‘Dulaari’. A reader, identifying himself as simply MZ, posted this comment.

My first comment on this site.

You would be lucky to get 10 good songs in a year these days but in the forties and fifties, you could get 10 good songs in a movie such as this one. Just think of Naushad’s movies like Rattan, Anmol Ghadi, Andaz, Babul, Dulari, Uran Khatola, Deedar, Dastaan, Baiju Bawra, Shabab etc and it is staggering how he could come with so many gems in one movie.

Also going through your site, I see that in 1949 the following all time great musicals released – Shair, Paras, Namoona, Dulari, Mahal, Barsaat, Andaz, Bazaar, Lahore ,Badi Bahen, Dillagi, Chandini Raat, Shabnam, Patanga, Ek thi Ladki, Zevrat, Chakori, Jal Tarang, Raat ki raani, Laadli.

How I envy those who lived during those times !!!

To this, Atul ji had responded,

Those were different days indeed.

Ah yes, surely, indeed those were different days. 46 songs in a single week. . .

I return to the numbers game and the review of the postings from that week. The following table contains the day by day information of the posts from that week.

In these 46 posts, three films were repeated. Two films are from 1949 – ‘Chaandni Chowk’, two songs, and ‘Dulaari’, three songs. The third movie repeated that week is the 1976 film ‘Laila Majnu’, two songs, This works out to be 42 different films that got showcased that week.

The distribution by decade preference is as follows,

1930s  –  1
1940s  –  9
1950s  –  15
1960s  –  13
1970s  –  6
1980s+ –  2

As always, the distribution is obviously weighed down in the decades of 50s and 60s.

That week, fifteen films had made their debut, and one film – ‘Dulaari’ from 1949 was Yippeee’d. Ah well, three songs of that film during the week.

Of the 42 films that were featured that week, 21 films have since been Yippeee’d. Of the remaining 21 films that are still pending, the film ‘Taatar Ka Chor’ from 1955 is waiting for one last song, but that one appears to be untraceable. So this film is tagged as Yc – conditionally Yippeee’d.

A major milestone reached that week was the 400th guest post by yours truly. The post for the song “Main Hoon Atom Bomb” from the 1960 film ‘Dr Shaitaan’, published on 10th July that year, was my 400th post on the blog.

Today I present one more song of the unreleased film ‘Salaam e Mohabbat’ from the 1950s. This film had made its debut 10 years ago on 10th of July. The song posted was the iconic Talat Mehmood rendition of “Main Tujhko Agar Ik Phool Kahoon”. The song coming on board today is another enchanting melody by the music director duo Bipin Babul. The words are from the pen of Anjum Jaipuri and the singing voice is Sudha Malhotra.

As I was searching for the song to go along with with this post, I came across this wonderful song. It has been sitting in my collection all the while but I am hearing it for the first time today.

Yes, those were the days. Those were the days that not only the top rung music directors produced great songs in their films, even the lesser known and lesser heard music directors like Bipin Babul came up with enchanting melodies. Melodies that were lost to the listening public – unreleased films and released but unsuccessful films otherwise.

Those certainly were the days. And it is for this reason that period is called the Golden Age of the Hindi film song – melody was surely ruling the minds of the creators of songs of that era.

Listen to this song, and wonder. . .

नैया भँवर के बीच थी

ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं

ग़मों से कोइ कह दे
मेरी दुनिया से चले जाएँ
ग़मों से कोइ कह दे
मेरी दुनिया से चले जाएँ
खुशी के सुर मिले तो
दिल के अरमां गुनगुनाते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है

मिले हैं आज वो जिनको
सितारों तक में ढूंढा है
मिले हैं आज वो जिनको
सितारों तक में ढूंढा है
हम अपनी ज़िंदगी को
हाए॰॰ए॰॰ए
हम अपनी ज़िंदगी को
उनके कदमों पर झुकाते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है
आज आँसू मुसकुराते हैं
ना जाने बात क्या है

Blog Day :

5045 Post No. : 16956

Today’s song is from the film Bandish-1955.

What is the meaning of the word Bandish ? It is very funny that we use many Urdu words without understanding their real exact meanings. We have some vague idea about its meaning and we sincerely use it with that intended meaning. I have come across people frequently using wrong words, causing humour or pity. From the childhood, I always remembered what our English teacher had told us. He had said that when in doubt, immediately refer to the dictionary and get the right meaning. A habit from that time helped me always and I became careful in using the correct words. This helped me in my education as well as career. Same case is with pronunciation of certain words. English or Urdu is not our mother tongue, and hence the right pronunciation of words is as important as using the right words.

Again, how many of us know the real, exact meaning of the word Bandish ? Those of us who are Music oriented, we know that ‘ Bandish ‘ is a fixed, melodic composition in Vocal or Instrumental music. However, Bandish has some other usages or meanings like ‘ Binding Together ‘ or even ‘Restriction’. Dictionary gives these words, बंधन , रुकावट , शब्द योजना, रचना etc. Looking at the story of this film Bandish-55, the most appropriate meaning would be ‘Binding Together’.

This film was having a FIRST and a LAST about it. This film was the FIRST or the Debut film of the child artiste Daisy Irani. In this first film, she enacted a Boy’s role ! Daisy Irani was the sister of Menaka and Honey Irani and her brothers were Sarosh and Bunny. Her parents were Perin and Noshir Irani. Their grandfather ran an Irani restaurant ‘ B.Merwan’. Her father was looking after the cafe and their greedy mother Perin irani employed all 5 children to work as child artistes in Hindi and other language films. Thus their childhood was an abnormal one. Out of 5 children, Bunny acted in only 2 films,Sarosh in 5 films, Menaka even did few films as Heroine, but Daisy with 69 films and Honey with 22 films acted as child actors till they grew enough till not to look like children anymore. All got married and settled. Menaka married actor director Kamran (father of Farah Khan- Choreographer), Daisy married K.K.Shukla-a writer and Honey married Jawed Akhtar-writer, ex MP and a pseudo secularist.

This film was the LAST film as an assistant music Director for Ravi (who had been working as an assistant to Hemant Kumar). After this film, he debuted in film Vachan as an independent Music director He, however, continued relations with Hemant Kumar by offering him songs to sing in his films, for a long time.

Film Bandish-55 was made by Basu Chitra Mandir. It was directed by Satyen Bose and Music was by Hemant Kumar (assistant-Ravi Shankar Sharma). The cast of the film was Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Daisy Irani-credited as Roop Kumar, Bipin Gupta, Sajjan, Nazir Hussain and many many more. Master Bhagwan was a Guest Artiste and sang a song ” Le lo Gubbare” in this film.

Director Satyen Bose was my favourite director. I had first heard the name Satyen Bose when I saw the film Jagriti for the first time in 1954. That time I realised that this director is too good to miss anytime. His successive films confirmed my opinion about him and I made it a point to see all his films, as far as possible.

SATYEN BOSE was born on 22-1-1916 at Goya Bazaar, Calcutta. (some sources claim that he was born in Purnia, Bihar). He graduated in commerce from Vidyasagar college,Calcutta in 1941.He did jobs in Railways and Bank. He set up National progressive Pictures and made 3 films in Bangla. His Film PORIBORTAN-1949 was a grand success. He also acted as Principal Shishir babu in it. He then shifted to Bombay. He first made Parichay and then made Jagriti-54,a remake of his own PORIBORTON-49. Abhi Bhattacharya played the role of the new Superintendent Shekhar Babu in this film. Film Jagriti became a landmark movie in Hindi and won many awards including Filmfare and a national award. He directed 34 films till Woh din aayega-86.

He also did a Malyali film, Jeevita Samaram-71. His film Dosti gave name and fame to the L-P duo. Rakhi Gulzar debuted in his Jeevan Mrityu and Nargis got her National Award for his Raat aur Din-68.

Only 2 people from the Film Industry-Tarachand Barjatya and Anup Kumar attended his funeral. A great film director who gave hits like Jagriti, Raat aur Din, Girl Friend, Jeevan mrityu, Chalti ka naam gaadi etc,died Unsung and Unwept by the same industry !

In Hindi cinema 2 actresses were famous as ” Eternal Weepers”. In almost every film these actresses wept at least 10 times ! Seeing them smiling or laughing used to be a matter of challenge and the cine-goers used to bet on these moments in their films ! They were NIMMI AND MEENA KUMARI-who was called The Tragedy Queen. Do you know even among the male actors, there was one such actor who wept in the majority of his films ? He also had 3 pet dialogues to be used in all his films. It was jokingly said in the industry that he would not sign a film till he was assured of at least one weeping scene in the film. His name was NAZIR HUSSAIN.

Nazir Hussain, an educated, multifaceted character actor, producer, director, writer and a social worker. Nazir Hussain was born on 15-5-1922 at village Usia Dildarnagar, Kamsaar, dist. Ghazipur-U.P. His father Shahabzad was a Guard in Railways. Being a tall and healthy person, Nazir joined the British Army for some time, but soon he left and joined the Indian National Army of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. In 1950,Bimal Roy was planning his film on Netaji,”Pehla Aadmi”. He needed a person who could act and have the knowledge of Netaji’s army details. He approached Nazir Hussain and after some pressure, he conceded and acted in the film. (HFGK however does not show his name in the cast, maybe the list is incomplete or he must have been in the film credit list).

Thus started a career spanning a period of more than 3 decades. He was one actor who started with doing character roles and continued throughout his career. He worked in over 200 films. He was a permanent fixture in Bimal Roy films, next he worked in almost all films of Dev Anand and Dharmendra also. His typical style of acting and delivery of dialogues got him weeping roles mostly. It is generally believed that Nazir did only weepy roles of helpless, poor farmers, poor girl’s father, worker of low level, coolie etc etc, but it is not true. He is probably one of those actors who excelled in doing a variety of roles like Murderer(Baazi),Professor(Tapasya),Doctor(Khamoshi/Abhinetri), Police Commissioner( Jewel Thief), Advocate( Mohabbat zindagi hai),Police Inspector( Kala Pani), doting/smiling father (Sharmilee), Riksha Puller ( Do bigha zamin), Seth ji( Naya Daur) etc etc. However, because of his weepy roles in hit films, he was nicknamed “Aansuon ka canister” in the film industry. The equation was, “Nazir does not accept a role unless he is allowed to weep on screen”.

Besides being a major character actor, the service he has rendered to the Bhojpuri Film industry can not be forgotten. In one of the Film Award functions, Nazir was introduced to President Rajendra Prasad. On learning that Nazir came from Gazipur, the President asked him why he should not produce Bhojpuri films. Taking inspiration from this, Nazir wrote, produced and directed the first Bhojpuri film “Gnaga maiya tori piyari chadhai bo”-1962. Later he kept on making several hit Bhojpuri films.

He was often a subject of ridicule for his weepy roles. His favourite dialogue was,”Beti / Beta, aaj agar tumhari Maa zinda hoti toh….”. Yet another was,”Ab main duniya ko kya munh dikhaun “? One more was, ”Tumne mere saare armaan choor choor kar diye”. Nazir Hussain was an actor,producer,director and also a writer. He used to write and direct all his Bhojpuri films. He shot many of his Bhojpuri films in and around his village and helped develop that area for employment.

His last film as an actor was Vali E Azam-1987. He died on 25-1- 2014 at the age of 92 years, in Malad, Mumbai. ( Thanks to Mr. M N Sardana ji and wiki ji).

The story, dialogues and screenplay of the film Bandish was by Jyotirmoy Roy. BANDISH was a remake of a successful Bengali film Chhale Kaar-1954.

In the film, story happens with all the cast bearing Bengali names. Nasir Hussain is Mahender Babu who is bringing up an orphan ‘Tomato’ (Daisy Irani),since he was a small baby. Now that he is unable to rear him any further due to bad health, he leaves Tomato in a park, where Kamal Roy(Ashok Kumar) is sitting alone on a bench and he tells Tomato to call him his father hereafter. Kamal Roy brings Tomato home and keeps him as his son. Kamal Roy’s marriage is fixed with Usha Sen(Meena kumari). The entry of Tomato is resented by Kamal’s Mother(Protima Devi) and father(Bhanu Bannerjee) who advise him to get married immediately, as the neighbours and other people in their social circle are whispering about Tomato’s parentage-accusing silently Kamal himself. In this situation Usha supports Kamal fully.

The story further details how Tomato brings cheers and sorrow in their lives with the end being very happy.

Here is the 4th song from this film, sung by Asha Bhosle.

Blog Day :

4867 Post No. : 16660

LIFE is a strange phenomenon – full of unexpected things and coincidences. Normally, I never take a long break in my post writing. Last month, however, I needed a break to relax and do things which I have been postponing or delaying – at Home level and work sphere. So I wrote to Atul ji informing him that I would take a hiatus from writing my posts from 28th October till well after Diwali, i.e. 10th of November. Little did I know that The Fate was smiling from behind me and that it already had its own plans to enforce a break to my total activities in the same period. Call it my Intuition or premonition. Whatever.

On the 5th of November – right in the very midst of Diwali celebrations, I met with a freak accident early in the morning at about 0615 hours, after my routine daily Morning Walk on our Society’s Jogging Track. I got medical treatment quickly, thanks to my Son-in-Law and two Grandchildren (One of them a Doctor himself). I was hospitalised and underwent all the irksome procedures like CT Scan, Tet. Injection, stapling the wound, Bandaging etc, followed with an order for compulsory Bed rest for a week ! So, my original plan to look at the pending works etc was gone with the winds, again turning into a wish for the future ! Taking this opportunity, I enjoyed all the attention and special treatment from the near and dear ones at home and on Social media !

When such things happen, one tends to confirm the existence of some unknown power that moves matters, whatever you plan otherwise as a simple Human. I believe this is Divine Power and is called GOD ! I am a confirmed Theist and a Deist, so are 99% people in India – whichever their Religion. Once you accept God’s existence you start believing and following the relative Culture. Hindu Culture is built around Upasana and Karmkand.

Karmakand includes items that have to be performed by the believers – as a path to Salvation. One of these is Fasting on certain days. There are two types of fasting that are undertaken by the people. One is fasting on fixed days of the week and the second is fasting to undertake a ” Vrat ” or a ritual to achieve specific objectives, like pleasing a particular God/Goddess to gain something etc.etc.

There is however,one more type of Fasting which is Monthly once or twice or yearly once or twice. Generally, it is some special ” Ekadashi ” or the 11th day of the Indian Month. In Maharashtra, the Ekadashi falling in the month of ASHADH is considered very auspicious. On this day, millions of devotees from all over Maharashtra converge at the Vithal Temple of Pandharpur. For this occasion, people start walking hundreds of kilometers from their villages/towns to Pandharpur. It is called ” VAARI” (वारी ). It has a tradition of over 700 years.

Ofcourse, there are some such pilgrimages from other states too, like Shri Vaishno Devi Yatra, Jagannath Yatra, Kamakshi Devi yatra of Gauhati, Sabari Malai Yatra in Kerala – which is very strenuous – requiring 40 days of Penance and abstinence and climbing the hill through jungles of Kerala. Such Yatras must be there in other places too. If our readers mention some, we will know better.

All this about Ekadashi, because today’s song is from the film Ekadashi-1955. Before we proceed further, let us know more about Ekadashi (One time or both times Fasting).
What is Ekadashi ?

Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day (Tithi) of the shukla (bright) or krishna (dark) paksha (fortnight) of every lunar month in the Hindu calendar (Panchang). In Hinduism and Jainism it is considered a spiritually beneficial day. Scriptures recommend observing an (ideally waterless) fast from sunrise on the day of Ekadashi to sunrise on the day following Ekadashi. Hindu scriptures teach that it is especially important to avoid all beans and all grains on this day because on the day of Ekadashi these two foods are contaminated by sin, one should eat only fruits and vegetables and milk products on this day. Ekadashi day is recognized as the best of all days to fast because it is on this day of the moon phase in which the rays of the moon actually nourish the subtle nerves and feelings of the heart.

Two Ekadashis occur in one month according to positions of the moon. The progression of the moon from full moon to new moon is divided into fifteen equal arcs. Each arc measures one lunar day, called “tithi”: The time it takes the moon to traverse that distance is the length of that lunar day. Ekadashi refers to the 11the tithi, or lunar day. The eleventh tithi therefore corresponds to a precise phase of the waxing and waning moon: In the bright half of the lunar month, the moon will appear roughly 3/4 full on Ekadashi, and in the dark half of the lunar month, the moon will be about 3/4 dark on Ekadashi.

Bhagavata Purana (sk. IX, adhy. 4) notes the observation of Ekadashi by King Ambarisha, a devotee of Vishnu.

The film Ekadashi-55 was made by All India pictures. produced by R.L. and M.L.Arora,it was directed by V.M.Gunjal. The music director of Ekadashi-55 was Avinash Vyas, ably assisted by Jayanti lal. There were 8 songs in the film. The cast of the film was Trilok Kapoor, Mala Sinha ( her only Mythological film), Sulochana, Gope, Badri Prasad etc etc.The Heroine of this film was Mala Sinha. It is mentioned in HFGK and also features in the credits of the film. However,strangely, she always avoided accepting that she ever worked in this film.

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada-54’ in Bangla and Hindi. In 54 again, she did her first film in Bombay, Badshah-54 (released on 15-10-54), then came Hamlet-54 (released on 7-1-55), Riyasat-55 and Ekadashi-55.

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted “Rangeen Raten”-56 with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film Riyasat-55, her Hero was Mahipal and in film Ekadashi-55 it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many Heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example,in the film “Professor”-62 Shammi Kapoor’s Heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was Pyar ki Jeet-62, opposite Mahipal- a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade Heroine Meena Kumari also had done several Mythological and costume films before Baiju Bawra took her high up and above other Heroines. Films like Veer Ghatotkach-49, Shri Ganesh Mahima-50, Laxmi Narayan-51, Hanuman Paataal vijay-51 and Alladin aur Jadui Chirag-52 had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny Walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with Baazi-51, had earlier worked in “The last message or Aakhri paigham”-49. However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors,but even singers do this. They hesitate to say that they first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare Arzoo-50 as her first film, under Anil Biswas, but she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film Aakhri paigham-49, under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

Lyricists are not far behind. Gulzar’s first song was not from Bandini – 63, as is claimed. He has written lyrics in films Choron ki Baraat-60, Diler Haseena-60 and Shriman Satyawadi-60. He wrote these songs as Gulzar Deenvi. Then he wrote lyrics in the film Kabuliwala-61 and Prempatra-62 in the name of Gulzar. Even then he claims Bandini-63 as his first film- which is wrong.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with a less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

Film Ekadashi-55 was directed by Dada Gunjal. Director Vishnupant Mathaji Gunjal or simply Dada Gunjal, was born in Kolhapur in 1904. He was not interested in education, so after passing his Matriculation, he joined the film industry. Initially he worked in various capacities, but concentrated on Directing the films. He established his own Gunjal Production company at Bombay and directed his first silent film Collegian in 1929. Soon ,realising that producing films was not his cake, he shifted to Directing films for Vishwesh film company, Bombay. Making silent films like Bharati, The Bandit, Vijeta, Bewafa qatil, khabardar, Bhedi khanjar etc.
When Talkie films started, he directed Bhakta ke Bhagwan and Ambarish in 1934. Dada Gunjal directed in all 37 films. Some of his films were, Bhakta dhruv, Panihari,Aparadhi, Ekadashi, Mata, Mamta, Tulsi, Bhakta ke Bhagwan, Noorjehan, Baraat, Kirti, Pati patni, Alakh Niranjan, Mother India -1938 etc.

Dada Gunjal died in 1968.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. It is a good song. Enjoy….

Today’s song is a funny Parody song taking place in a Mental Hospital and the singing artistes on the screen are all hospital patients including the Hero of the film. The song is from the film Do Dulhe-1955.

This was a film made by United Film Art, Bombay, with the joint producer Gemini Pictures, Madras. The entire film was shot in Gemini Studios, Madras. This was a remake of a very successful Tamil film ” Manam Pola Mangalyam”- 1953, in which Gemini Ganesan ( real name R.Ganesh) and Savitri had acted. This was their first film together. Later they did many films, but from this film onwards their love story started and Ganesan made Savitri his second wife.

In the 30’s and 40’s decades there were many films made in Poona/Bombay and Calcutta which were Bilinguals, i.e. in Marathi and Hindi as well as Bangla and Hindi. This was primarily to grab the local and all India markets. In those days, there were no Hindi films from the south. With the launch of film Chandralekha-1948, first time producer director S S Vasan released his film’s Hindi version on a grand scale all over India with about 700 prints. It was a very bold and maiden effort, but it paid very rich dividends to Vasan.

Encouraged by Vasan’s success, other film companies of South, including AVM entered the fray and from 1949 Bilinguals and Trilingual films were made in Tamil , Telugu and Hindi. Within a few years film remakes in Kannada and Malayalam also started in Madras. Compared to other languages, Kannada and Malayalam film production had started late in their states. Madras took its advantage. Few Tamil film makers made remakes even in Sinhala languages for the Sri Lanka market. By that time their Burmese market was lost. This went on till about the 70’s. After that film makers resorted to dubbing the film or selling the rights to Bombay to make remakes and the import of Hindi remakes from the south ended.

It was interesting to note that during that period, southern film makers had some favourites among Actors, actresses and MDs. Bombay film artistes used to be very eager to go to Madras for shooting, because of few reasons. One- their payments were immediate. Secondly, their production schedules were well planned and the work culture was disciplined. Thirdly, their stay, transport, travel and food arrangements were impeccable. All in all, they had only to go there and work diligently, without having tensions, usually seen in the Bombay film industry.

I have been seeing southern language films since the late 40’s. Their films used to be very entertaining and suitable for family viewing. There was ‘ something for everybody’ in their films. Comedy, Tragedy, Adventure, Fighting, Tears, Love, Lullaby and what not ! But then this made their films lengthy and full of too many characters and subplots.

Today’s film was also one such film. The film was directed by K.J.Mahadevan and the MD was B.S.Kalla. Many south Indian composers had tried their hand at giving music to Hindi films in the 50s decade. MDs like, Ghantasala, B S Kalla, S D Parthasarathi, E.Shankar, C.Subramanyam, B.Laxman, Vishwanathan, R.Sudarshanam, S V Venkataramana, T R Ramanathan and T G Lingappa are few of the less known names-for Hindi belt-from south who gave melodious music, but somehow they did not succeed here. One reason could be their use of southern singers, for whom acceptability was a problem here for Hindi songs. Names like Ramesh Naidu, Adi Narayana Rao and the pair of Vishwanathan- Ramamurthy were at least known names here. Their films like Piya milan-55, Suvarna Sundari-58 and Naya Aadmi-56 had many popular songs.

Balkrishna Kalla and E. Shanker team gave music to films like Mangala-50, Sansar-51, Mr.Sampat-52, Bahut din Huye-54. Balkrishna Kalla with Mohd. Shafi gave music to Krishna Kanhaiya-52. With Parthasarathi and Rajeshwar Rao he gave music to Nishan-49. Independently he gave music to only one film-Do Dulhe-54. B.S.Kalla had also done a small role in the film Mangala-50. The southern composers gave music only to dubbed films or remakes essentially.

The lyricist was south’s favourite Pt. Indra. The cast was huge. Main artistes were Shyama, Sajjan, Vananja, Agha, David, Lalita Pawar, Kanhaiyalal, B M Vyas, Achala Sachdev, Suryakantam, Ishwar lal etc etc. The hero was Sajjan- and in a double role too !. Some of the readers will be surprised with this name. Unfortunately artistes like Sajjan, who were multi-skilled, did not get due recognition in Hindi film industry or in even the general film going public. Artistes like Badri Pershad, Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, Ranjan etc. were experts in fields other than film acting and had achieved expertise, name and fame in different fields. Sajjan was also one such artiste. He was a film actor, Stage actor, writer of Poetry, assistant film director, a poet, lyricist, Dialogue writer and a T.V.Artiste.

Born on January 15, 1921 in Jaipur, his full name was Sajjan Lal Purohit, a Pushkarna Bramhin. For many generations in his family, no one was interested in music or acting. He was famous with his first name in the movie world. Sajjan did his graduation from Jawahar college, Jodhpur. He had a desire to be a lawyer but not an actor.

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Film Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films like Masoom (1941), Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Bombay. In Bombay he knew Prithwiraj Kapoor from his Calcutta days. He joined the Prithvi Theatre and worked in dramas like, Shakuntala, Pathan, Deewar, Aahuti, Kalakar, Kisan Paisa etc etc. Here he came into contact with Shammi, Raj, Shashi kapoor, Omprakash, Premnath, Zohra Saigal, B M Vyas, Ram Ganguli, Shankar, jaikishen and others. Afterwards, he started doing dramas separately. In ” Dhola Marwan” his heroine was Snehprabha Pradhan. He did many One Man Shows too.

He was a writer of Poetry. He participated in many gatherings of poets. His poetry book ” Jawan” became so popular that even Nehru had bought 100 copies of it. It was reprinted four times.

In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time great showman Raj Kapoor also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and for the film Vakil Sahib-43 and got Rs. 35 as salary.

A poet by heart, Sajjan showed His talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena -1944 and lyrics for Door Chalen -1946, Jail Yatra-47 and Dhanyavad -1948.

His acting debut film was Mera Suhag-47. After that Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. His heroine was Nalini Jayvant. As a Hero, he worked with Geeta Bali,Nutan,Nimmi,Shyama,Shakila, Nalini Jaywant etc etc.

Now Sajjan was well established in the film world. In 1950s- 60s Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films like, Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, paridhaan, Do Dulhe, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam, Jhanjhar, Halla- Gulla. As a hero his last film was Kabuliwala-61 and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru.

Artiste of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram-Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

Sajjan acted in more than 150 films. Though he was a reasonably good actor, he felt very awkward while singing a song on screen. His Producers and Directors knew this and they gave him minimum songs. Thus he is on record in his 150+ films to have sung around 20 odd songs only, in spite of being a Hero in some films. After retirement, Sajjan was not in good health, but he wrote a book ‘ Ras-Bhav ‘, discussing all the 9 Rasas as enunciated by Bharat Muni’s Treatise on “Natya Shastra”. He also published a book on the Birth Centenary of Prithviraj Kapoor, whom he revered very much. Sajjan died on 17-5-2000.

Film Do Dulhe was an entertaining film. I saw this film again yesterday evening. Here is the story, in short…

Parvati/ Paro (Shyama) is a motherless daughter of B.M.Gupta (B.M.Vyas). Her step mother (Lalita Pawar) and step sister Dulari (Vanaja) torture her with household chores etc. Dulari’s marriage is arranged with Kundan (Sajjan), who comes from Madras to see Dulari. On the way he meets Paro and they fall in love. Paro’s marriage is being arranged with an old widower Seth Deen Dayal (David) who has lent 15 thousand to Paro’s father. Kundan goes to Madras to bring money to pay Deen Dayal . When he comes he sees Paro’s marriage preparations. He returns heartbroken to Madras. Meanwhile Paro also runs away from home and goes to Madras to meet Kundan. They meet but due to misunderstanding he leaves her.

Kundan is caught by mental Hospital employees as their patient kanhaiya-a look alike(Sajjan again). The patient Kanhaiya escapes and is brought as Kundan to Dulari’s house. After a few (actually many) coincidences, everything is clear and finally Kundan marries Paro and a recovered Kanhaiya marries Dulari. Thus Do Dulhe get Do Dulhans and the audience feels relieved from seeing further ridiculous levels the story could go to !

Today’s song is the 6th song from this film to feature here. This is a funny parody song sung by patients of the mental hospital on the screen and after seeing this video you are supposed to ROFL !

Today’s song is from the film Shiv Bhakta-1955.

Today (6-9-2021) is the last Monday of the Shrawan month in this part of India (Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamilnadu, Andhra pradesh, telangana,Assam, West Bengal and Tripura). Actually, today is also the last day of this month of shrawan. From tomorrow month of Bhadrapad starts and within few days, will be Ganesh Chaturthi- celebrations for the home coming of Lord Ganesh – the Vighna Harta i.e. संकट मोचक (remover of Obstacles).

Film Shiv Bhakt-55 was made by A.V.M. in Madras. By and large, in my opinion, South India has protected, followed and nurtured the Hindu Dharma and Indian traditions as compared to other parts. Culture is practically the same all over India, but in the south one can still see old traditions and cultural activities followed more. This is my personal observation. As a Marketing Professional I had the opportunity to travel throughout India-even smaller towns- for almost 25 years. In these years i have observed and made notes in my diaries from time to time about the specialties of each state and its people.

Mythological films are very popular in South India. Though the number is less now, still more such films are made in the south than any other part of India. As if a tradition, most of the famous and the well known actors from south began their film careers by first doing a Mythological film. M G Ramchandran-MGR, N T Rama Rao-NTR, A Nageshwar Rao-ANR, Anjali Devi, Sivaji ganeshan and many others began with a religious film. Even Dr. Rajkumar of kannada movies started with a film on a Shiv Bhakt – Bedara kannappa-54.

Today’s film Shiv Bhakta-55 is directed by one legend from the south- H L N Simha or H. Laxmi Nar Simha. His name is not known outside the south, but in the south, especially in the Kannada film world, he was a highly respected personality.

H L N Simha was born on 25-7-1904, at a village Madhalli, in Malavalli in Mandya district of Karnataka. Starting as an actor in Dramas, he soon established his own drama company-” Chandrakala Natak Mandali”,along with a fellow actor Mohd. Peer. His first film was Sanskara Nauka-36,in which he was an actor,writer, screenplay writer and its Director too. He is famous for locating and introducing Dr. Rajkumar into films. Raja Sulochana and Pandaribai are also his discoveries. He was credited for making Dr. Rajkumar work in a Telugu film, under his direction-” Kalahasti Mahatmyam”-54. This was Rajkumar’s only film outside Kannada language !

Mr.Simha served the stage and film industry for nearly half a century. His interest in stage began when he was a young lad and wrote his short play, ‘Destiny Rules Humanity’ and brought it on stage with Mohamed Peer, another renowned stage actor of yesteryears. Later he joined the famous Varadachar Drama Company and began playing minor roles.

Appreciating the stage talent of Mr.Simha, Gubbi Veeranna sent him to Bombay, present Mumbai, for training in film direction. After the training, Mr.Simha joined hands with Mr.Gubbi Veeranna as Assistant Director and produced a silent movie, “His Love Affair”. His major stage play, “Samsara Nouka” (the life’s boat) brought him rich encomiums as a top drama producer and director. It was brought on stage during 1933. Breaking tradition of Pouranic plays, “Samasara Nouke” tread a new path. It became the first social play in Kannada touching upon the prevailing social issues and conditions like dowry, unemployment and widow marriage. Simha played the leading role as Maadhu, while Peer Sab as Sundara in this play, which was staged in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu also, besides in several places in Karnataka.

His role as Shahajan in the same title play and as Chenna in ‘Gouthama Buddha’ play brought him more laurels. Then leading stage personalities like T.P.Kailasam, Pandit Taranath and Thirumale Thatacharya Sharma were among those who lauded the acting abilities of Mr.Simha, apart from his abilities as a director of Kannada plays.

Simha later set up his own troupe, “Simha’s Select Artistes” and produced dramas like “Abba Aa Hudugi”, “Bamgarada Bara”, “Madhakari Nayaka”. Those who acted in these dramas included Rathnakar and M.V.Narayana Rao (who spoke at the function on July 27), film script writer Sorot Aswath, and M.V.Rajamma.

The next phase in the life of Mr.Simha was that of a film producer. Then famous film producer of Madras, Mr. K.Rajagopala Chettiar invited Mr. Simha to produce his famous play “Samsara Nouka’ as a film. Taking up the challenge of producing a social Kannada film for the first time, Mr.Simha introduced to the film industry B.R.Panthulu, M.V.Rajamma, Dikki Madhava Rao, Tamash Madhava Rao, Hunsur Krishnamurthy and Hanumantha Rao, who later became leading personalities in the Kannada film world.

When Mr. Simha was looking for a suitable person for his ‘Bedara Kannappa’, he saw Mutthu Raju, now Dr. Rajkumar, who has now become a household name in the film industry, at Nanjangud and gave him the new name in the lead role. This film became a hit and brought Dr.Rajkumar to limelight. Apart from Dr.Rajkumar, Mr.Simha introduced several other famous personalities like G.V.Iyer, Narasimha Raju, Raja Sulochana, Honnappa Bhagavathar, Raja Shankar, B. Hanumanthachar to the film world.

Mr.Simha’s last film was “Anugraha” in 1970, had a song written by his son, Mr.Sheshachandra. But unfortunately, Mr.Simha was not alive to see the film, when it was released. He passed away on July 3, 1972, leaving a legend behind him, which, unfortunately very few remember today.

The cast of the film Shiv Bhakt-55 was Shahu Modak, Padmini, Ragini, Anant Marathe, Pandari bai,Ramachandra sastry and many others. Lyrics were by G S Nepali and the music was given by Chitragupt. One name in the cast is Pandaribai. She is one south indian actress who worked in many Hindi films Her first Hindi film was ‘Bahar’-51, in which evn Vaijayanti mala had debuted.

Pandari Bai (18-9-1928 to 29 January 2003) was an actress of South Indian languages films, mostly in Kannada language during the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. She was born on 18-9-1928 at Bhatkal, Karnatak, to Kaveri Bai and Ranga Rao. She is considered Kannada cinema’s first successful heroine. She has acted as both heroine and mother to stalwarts such as Rajkumar, M. G. Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan. She was the heroine in Rajkumar’s debut movie Bedara Kannappa and also Sivaji’s debut movie Parasakthi. She has acted in over 1,000 films in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Bai was honoured by Kalaimamani from the Tamil Nadu government.

Pandaribai began her career in acting in plays based on mythological stories before making her film debut in 1943 with the Kannada language film, Vani. She appeared in the 1954 Kannada film Bedara Kannappa opposite Rajkumar. In the film, she played Neela, wife of Kanna (played by Rajkumar), a hunter. She established herself as a lead actress portraying a woman with a “progressive” image assuming the burdens of a feudal patriarchy in films such as Sant Sakhu (1955) and Rayara Sose (1957). In 1959, she appeared in Abba Aa Hudugi, with her sister Mynavathi. The film is considered a landmark in Kannada cinema.
Later in her career Pandari Bai played the mother of stars older than her, most of whom had played the lead with her in her earlier years. She worked in 27 Hindi films. Her first Hindi film was Bahar-52, in which Vaijayantimala made her Debut in Hindi films. Pandharibai’s Hindi pronunciation initially was typically south indian, but over a period, she improved her diction. Her last Hindi film was Time Bomb-1996. However, after her death on 29-1-2003, 3 more delayed Hindi films were released. She came to be known to Hindi audiences mainly due to her role in the film Bhabhi-57. Some of her famous Hindi films were Panchayat-58, Paigham-59, Rakhwala-71, Apna desh-72 and Sampoorna Ramayan-73.

The story of the film was – The story of the film was-
Manimant and Alka are a happy couple in Gandharva Lok. Due to a curse by Indra, they have to take birth on Earth. They are found in the jungle by a Hunter who adopts them and brings them up. When they are young, they are married as Deena and Neela. They live a happy life, but some bad elements in their tribe spread rumours about them and they are thrown out of the village. Deena is very angry and becomes a nastik (atheist) because, for no fault of theirs, god has punished them. Neela however has deep faith in God.

One day when Deena could not get any animal for hunting, tired he sits at a place, which happens to be a Shiva Temple. The priest Kashinath finds out about him and asks him to repeat the mantra “Om Namah Shivay” continuously till he gets an animal. Deena, without knowing anything about it, starts the Japa and after some time his heart is filled with bhakti Rasa and love for God.

The chief Priest Kailashnath is a bogus person. He steals God’s jewellery and gives it to his dancer girlfriend Rani. When the theft comes to light, Deena is accused of the theft as he was in the temple. For the second time he has to suffer for no fault. Deena and Neela continue the Japa of Om Namah shivay and are ready to give the supreme sacrifice with their lives, when Lord Shiva appears before them and takes them to Gandharvalok again.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle.
