‘Jalsaghar’ [(1958), Music Room] was Satyajit Ray’s third film (4th film in terms of the date of release). After the box office failure of his second film, ‘Aparajito’ (1957), Satyajit Ray decided to make a popular film which would cater to the taste of Bengali audience. ‘Jalsaghar’. the short story of Tarashankar Bandopadhyay was the basis for the film which had the popular subject of the declining fortunes of zamindars (landlords) who patronized arts and music. So, there would be scope for songs and dances which would attract the audience.

But how could a director of the stature of Satyajit Ray succumb to make a commercial film whose heart was attuned to making the intellectual films? So, the net result was that when ‘Jalsaghar’ (1958) shooting was completed, the popular subject of declining aristocracy became a serious subject. The popular music associated with such subject was turned into the hardcore Hindustani classical songs and a classical dance. In other words, the film took the shape of an artistic film and won the National Film Award, 1959 for the best feature film in Bengali.

It took quite a long time to search for a dilapidated palace in West Bengal for shooting the film. At last, someone from Murshidabad suggested Nimtita Rajabari in Murshidabad which suited well as a palace for a zamindar whose fortunes are on the decline. It was a great coincidence that later on, Tarashankar Bandopadhyay revealed to Satyajit Ray that his short story was inspired by landlord Upendra Narayan Chaudhury who stayed in Nimtita Rajabari. His descendants have now settled in Kolkata.

The film is available for viewing on one of the video sharing platforms in 10 parts with English sub-titles. While watching, I felt that the original film may have been edited to some extent. However, the continuity of the story seems to have been maintained. The film’s story is set in the mid 1930s and centres around Chhabi Biswas in the role of an aged music-loving landlord. He is present in almost all the frames of the film. Rest of the main actors like Padma Devi, Gangapada Bose, Tulsi Lahiri, and Kali Sarkar have subsidiary roles. The story as depicted in the film is as under:

Biswambar Roy (Chhabi Biswas) is an aged feudal landlord who lives in his dilapidated palace on the banks of a river. He has lost his wife, Mahamaya Devi (Padma Devi) and the only son, Khoka some years back when their boat capsized in the river during a storm. He has lost much of the land-holding due to the soil erosion created by the river. He has only one servant, Ananta (Kali Sarkar) and the Estate Manager (Tulsi Lahiri) to his company besides his horse and an elephant. To maintain his status as an aristocratic landlord, he indulges in lavish spending and pleasures like hosting concerts in his music room, high quality drinks etc. Much of his assets including the remaining land and jewelries have been mortgaged or sold.

While old Biswamber is resting in his room reminiscing his golden days as a wealthy landlord, Mahim Ganguly (Gangapada Bose), his neighbour and a neo-richman, visits the palace to invite him to attend his son’s thread ceremony. While Biswamber declines to attend giving an excuse that because of his old age, he has stopped going out of his palace. But this event reminds him of his son’s thread ceremony which he had conducted in pomp and show worthy of a landlord which included a grand firework in the night followed by a musical concert in his jalsaghar (music room) where all his guests were served choicest drinks. He also remembers that in the same night, his wife resented his spending on concerts too, by mortgaging her jewellery.

Biswamber also remembers that he had arranged a next musical concert on the day his wife and son were to return to the palace after the visit to her mother’s place, to celebrate the new year. This was also to show his might to his new-rich neighbour, Mahim even though for this, Biswamber had to sell some of his antique furniture and some more jewellery. While the concert was in the mid-way, he got the news that his wife and the son drowned in the river while returning on a boat.

After the death of his wife and son, Biswamber has been living in the palace alone with a servant to attend to him. His music room has remained locked for many years. He has become a recluse. He is in no mood to accept his neighbour Mahim’s personal invitation to attend his newly constructed house-warming ceremony and a dance concert. But it reminds him of his music room which has been closed for years. He orders his servant to open it at once. He spends some time inside the music room reminiscing of his glorious days.

In order to spite his neighbour, Biswamber decides to organise a dance concert of a famous kathak dancer from Banaras for which he spends his last cash reserves of Rs.500 for refurbishing his music room, arranging drinks to his guests and giving his last of the precious stones as a gift to the dancer. After the concert, though he has become almost bankrupt, a drunk Biswamber is very happy that he could effectively replicate his past glory to spite his neo-rich neighbour, Mahim.

However, as the night progresses, he observes that one by one the candles in the chandeliers of his music room are getting over, making the room dark. A frightened Biswamber linking the candle light-off to the end of his own life, calls his servant, Ananta who apprises him that the dawn is approaching. He would open the windows and the sunlight would make the room brightened. As the morning sun rises, in his last show of grandeur of his aristocracy, Biswamber mounts his favourite horse and rides at a faster pace away from the palace. But he is thrown out of the horse and dies at the banks of the river – the same river which is also responsible for the erosion of his land and the death of his wife and son.

The moral of the story is that though Biswamber knows that his fortunes are on the decline, he is not ready to adjust to the reality of the situation. Every effort is made to maintain his lavish spending even in the background of facing the adverse financial position. There is no need to compete in terms of prestige with the neo-rich, Mahim who has improved his economic condition by his business acumenship. On the other hand, Biswamber should have taken the clues from Mahim to diversify into some other business ventures. In both the cases – the decline of Zamindars and the emergence of non-Zamindar neo-rich, Satyajit Ray has very well explored human psychology of showmanship.

The highlight of the film is the superb performance by Chhabi Biswas in the role of an aged landlord. The entire film lies on his shoulder. It may be worthwhile to note that in reality, actor Chhabi Biswas belonged to an aristocratic family. He has personally witnessed the downfall of aristocracy. With this background, it comes naturally to him to perform his role of a falling aristocrat. In fact, there is so much of a genuineness in his performance that those who have watched the film would sympathise with him at the end of the film notwithstanding the fact that it is his ego and the false prestige which are responsible for his downfall.

One of the scenes in the film which I liked the most is when Biswamber enteres his jalsaghar (music room) for the first time after keeping it locked for some years. He spends about 5-6 minutes inside jalsaghar without any dialogue and the background music, observing each and every item – portraits of his forefathers, each and every chandeliers, furniture and fixtures etc. This scene reminds me of a similar scene in ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) when an aged Guru Dutt visits his studio and glances the entire studio, reminiscing of his glorious days as a successful director. He touches the camera and sits on his director’s chair in the dark studio never to get up.

Satayjit Ray has used the camera as well as the expression and gestures of the main actors to move forward the story of the film more than the dialogues. My guess is that of 100 odd minutes of the film, the dialogues in the film would have cumulatively consumed not more than 40 minutes. Ustad Vilayat Khan has used mainly Sitar and Flute for background music which goes well with the ambience of the palace as well as the genre of the story.

Like ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959), ‘Jalsaghar’ (1958) had also the same fate of failure at the box office. The reviews of the film after its release in India were mostly adverse. It was only after a couple of years when the film was released in the US and the UK, it received a cult status. Over a period of time, the film has been one of the widely discussed classic films of Satyajit Ray like ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959). In June 2018, the film was shown in the Siri Fort Auditorium, the only Indian classic film shown at Navras Duende World Film Festival.

‘Jalsaghar’ (1958) has two songs – both rendered in Hindustani classical raags. In addition, the film also has the 8-minute of Kathak dance by Roshan Kumari, the daughter of playback singer, Zohrabai Ambalewaali. I am presenting a traditional thumri ‘bhar bhar aayi mori ankhiyaan piya bin’ rendered by Begum Akhtar. The song is picturised on Begum Akhtar herself up to say 01:45 of duration. Thereafter, the actress singing the song is different until Begum Akhtar surfaces again towards the end of the song. However, the entire duration of the song is rendered by Begum Akhtar. The Thumri was set to music by Ustad Vilayat Khan.

The background of the song is that Biswamber Roy remembers his olden days when after the thread ceremony of his son, he had arranged a concert in the night in his jalsaghar where all the guests had been served with drinks. All the money spent for the event was raised by selling his wife’s jewellery.

The director’s camera captures many other details while the singer is rendering the Thumri. The camera pans over the entire jalsaghar to show the grandeur of the music room. The camera also captures other subsidiary activities simultaneously going on, both physically and mentally. The camera focuses on Chhabi Biswas who is shown to be listening very intensely. But behind the intensity, he is also thinking something else as his eyes remain static, probably remembering many such music soirees of the past. His neighbour, Gangapada Bose is inhaling snuff but at the same time, he is embarrassed as to whether any of the guests has noticed his action. The camera also captures him in trying to control his sneeze following inhaling the snuff and thereafter searching for a glass of drink.

This film, in my view, is a ‘must see’ for those who believe the films as the director’s medium and also for the excellent performance of Chhabi Biswas as an aged landlord.

Hullo Atuldom

“Amardeep” (1958) had 12 songs 9 of which are on the blog. Le lo le lo gubbaare was the last song posted from this movie exactly two years ago on this date.

Here is the next song in the voice of Asha Bhonsle which is a dance by Vyjayanthimala. It is the opening scene of the movie and comes immediately after the titles are over. It gives the background of the character played by Vyjayanthimala who plays Aruna and her grandfather wants her to marry Pran. But this is an Indian movie where the lady will find someone better (according to her) than the person selected by the family. It is a different matter that since time immemorial, Indian marriages have mostly been arranged marriages where the girl and the boy would hardly know each other till they got married and started family life. And since they began making movies in India, we have had love stories where there is lot of action in the form of family opposition, two people in love with the same person or any other possible obstacles that will help build a movie to close to 180 minutes of running time.

So we can safely say that movies are all make believe. But we still feel that movies reflect real life.

Sorry to have digressed into a sermon regarding the make-believe nature of movies. What I wanted to say was Aruna (Vyjayanthimala) finds Ashok (Dev Anand) better than Pran. And there is the addition of an accident in the story which makes Ashok lose his memory and the girl (Padmini) who tends him in his illness falls in love with him. But he is non-committal. The next twist is the two girls turn out to be sisters separated in childhood. And in the climax when all the twists unravel one of the sisters decides to sacrifice her life so that the hero can live for her sisters’ happiness.

I am not an expert at writing about movies prior to 1975, there are other ideal persons for that, among the regular contributors of the blog, who help Atulji build-up the data base that this blog is getting transformed into. Today (9th June) is the birth-date of one of them. He goes by the name Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukh but is better known as the in-house encyclopedia among the followers of the blog. He is meticulous about getting details of the subjects that he writes about. He may have been engaged in the corporate world before retirement but is a writer in reality. He has followed his hobby/ passion – movies- wholeheartedly and once he got a hang of how to handle the World-Wide-Web or internet as it is called and finds the information that is needed to bring to light lesser -known artists, artists with same name, and a whole bunch of other topics which are close to his heart. His posts are treasures of information. I must stop writing about him as this modest gentleman is not used to hearing or reading about himself.

I end my post as always by wishing “Guruji”- as I like to address him; A Very Happy Birthday. May we have lot more posts from you and may the river of information that you provide never dry up. Thank You for being our ready-reckoner

Blog Day: 4338 Post No.: 15636

Today’s song is from film Raaj Tilak-1958.

This was a S.S.Vasan film from his Gemini Pictures, Madras. Film Raaj Tilak was a remake of the original popular film in Tamil-“Vanji Kottai Valiban”( The youth from Vanji Fort). It was loosely based on the famous adventure novel, “The Count of Monte Cristo”, written by Alexander Dumas and first published in 1844. Its Telugu version was titled “Vijay Kota Veerudu”and the Hindi version was Raaj Tilak.

AVM and Gemini, the two giants from Madras were keen on making Bi-Lingual (Tamil-Hindi/Tamil-Telugu,Telugu-Hindi) or Tri-lingual (Tamil-Telugu-Hindi) films to capture all the three big markets. Southern bosses took pleasure in engaging artistes from Bombay and in return Bombay artistes were happy to work in southern films, because they were disciplined, punctual and worked methodically. Their payments, staying arrangements and the treatment to Hindi artistes was very satisfying.

From the time Vasan’s multilingual Blockbuster, Chandralekha’s success in 1948, it dawned on south producers that a huge market in Hindi belt was available for their successful south films. One after another hit films started from South, like Nishan-49, Mangala-50,Bahar-51, Mr. Sampat-52, Miss Mary-57, Asha-57 and such other films, which were either remakes of Tamil/Telugu hit films or films made in Madras.

During this period, C Ramchandra and his songs were very popular in south. At the same time, his favourite Lyricist Rajendra krishna also had a great demand in south. Rajendra Krishna worked for both AVM and Gemini films. Vasan wanted that Rajendra krishna should work only for Gemini and not AVM. However, Rajendra Krishna continued working for AVM, so Vasan decided not to take Rajendra krishna for Gemini films anymore.

In 1957, AVM’s film Bhabhi became a Hit film. Rajendra krishna had written all the songs for Bhabhi. In 1958, when Vasan Planned to make Raaj Tilak in Hindi and its Tamil and Telugu versions, at the same time, he selected C Ramchandra as its Music Director. That time C Ramchandra was working for film Amardeep-58 in Bombay and Rajendra krishna was the Lyricist. C Ramchandra knew that Vasan will not take Rajendra krishna as a Lyricist for Gemini films anymore. At that time only, P L Santoshi met C Ramchandra. He had fallen on bad days and requested C Ramchandra for his help.

With consideration for past successful association with Santoshi, C Ramchandra recommended Santoshi’s name to Vasan. He also agreed. When Rajendra Krishna came to know this, he did not like it and he severed ties with C Ramchandra. The two never worked together again. The year 1958 was not a good year for C Ramchandra anyway. Lata had given indications that after Raaj Tilak, she would not sing for C Ramchandra. She did only one solo and one duet in this film. After Rajendra krishna split with C Ramchandra, he started recommending Chitragupta, Madan Mohan and others to South producers. C Ramchnadra stopped getting their offers. In addition film Raaj Tilak also did not do so well.

The cast of film Raaj Tilak-58 was Vaijayanti Mala, Padmini, Gemini Ganeshan, Pran, Jagirdar, Bipin Gupta, Lalita Pawar, Durga Khote etc etc. Gemini Ganeshan (17-11-1920 to 22-3-2005), better known in Hindi belt as actress Rekha’s father, started his Hindi films with Devta-56. Then came Miss Mary-57 and his third film was Raaj Tilak-58. He acted in 24 Hindi films. His last film was Allauddin and wonderful Lamp-82. After his death in 2005, two films were released in 2009, namely Shivdoot and Devi Saraswati, both dubbed films.

When I saw actor Pran’s name in the cast of this film, I remembered that Pran had also acted in another same titled film Raaj Tilak-84, featuring Dharmendra, Hema etc. Pran’s first Hindi film – as a Hero – was Khandan-42 in Lahore. he again acted in another same name film Khandan-in 1965. In the 42 film he was the Hero, but in the 1965 film he was a Villain. He did exactly opposite in another same name film. In film Aan Baan-56 ( Ajit-N.Jaywant), he was a Villain, but in the 1972 film Aan Baan (Rajendra kumar-Rakhi) he did a benevolent person’s sober role in this film ! Pran acted as a Villain in film Chingari-55(Shekhar-N.Jayawant) and also in film Chingari-89 (Sanjay Khan-Leena Cghandavarkar).

Pran did role in many remakes of his films. When he came to Bombay from Lahore in 1948, he got roles in films Grihasthi, Ziddi and Chunaria. In 1948, two of his Lahore made films – Birhan and Barsat ki ek raat – released in India. In both these films, he was the Hero, but in India, he started as a villain in his first 3 films. Kishore Sahu remade film Grihasthi-48 as Film “Ghar Basaa ke Dekho”-1963. In this film Pran did the same role as in the 48 film. Comedian Gope had made a film “Malkin” in 1951 (Gope and Yakub). His brother Ram Kamlani remade this film as “Biradari’ in 1966 (Mehmood and Kanhaiyalal). Pran was villain in both the films.

In his 66 years of career, Pran did variety of roles. Besides acting in remakes and same title films, he also worked in 2-3 generations of actor families. In film Rajkumar-1964, he worked with Prithviraj Kapoor. With Raj Kapoor, he did films like Aah, Chori chori, Jis desh mein Ganga behti hai etc etc. He worked with Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor also. In 1973, he worked in film Rikshawala, with Randhir Kapoor and in film Bobby, with Rishi Kapoor. Thus he worked in 3 generations of Kapoor family.

Pran worked with Naseem Bano in film Sindbad the sailor-52 and worked in many films with Saira Bano-her daughter. He worked with Mumtaz Ali and Mehmood. Pran acted with Sunil Dutt and Sanjay Dutt. He also worked with Dharmendra and Sunny Deol.

There was no other actor like him in Hindi film industry ever again.

Coming back to film Raaj Tilak-58, the story of the film was….

The loyal Diwan of the kingdom accuses the Senapathi to have planned the killing of the young prince. The king ,as a punishment banishes him to another country, but Senapati hides in the kingdom itself. One day he kills the king and becomes the ruler. Before dying, the king asks his loyal Diwan to save the prince and the princess. Diwan takes them and runs away, leaving his own wife and children.

Senapati captures Diwan’s wife, keeps her in prison on an island and leaves his son and daughter in the flowing river. Some kind person saves the children and they grow up as Chander ( G.Ganesan) and sister Gowri ( Vijaya kumari).

‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – you must be wondering. . .

All the songs from this movie have been covered on the blog as per details given below,

 

Song  Posted On
 Pyaar par bas to nahin hai  06.06.2009
 Raat ka bhar ka hai mehmaan andheraa  26.09.2010
 Sach bataa tu mujhpe fidaa  16.05.2011
 Sainyya jabse ladin hain tose ankhiyaan  07.12.2011
 Chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk rail chale  08.12.2011
 Bekas ki tabaahi ke saamaan hazaaron hai  23.04.2012

Since all the songs from this movie have been covered and the movie has achieved ‘Yippeeee’ status on the blog one would genuinely ask the question why this post now? and which song??

As I have mentioned in my earlier post with the ‘couplet song’ “Aap Abhi Ishq Ki Tehzeeb Se Aagaah Nahin” from ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), that I had prepared an excel sheet for Sahir and his music directors with the number of songs in the movies where Sahir Ludhianvi was lyricist. During the preparation of this list I had to go through the HFGK Vol II to VI and check the movie page for each movie. There I had noted some corrections and other interesting information. Accordingly, we are in the process of correcting some ‘tags’ for lyrics and adding some ‘snippets’, or ‘couplet songs’ wherever they are available and we can bring them here on the blog.

In the movie page for ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ in HFGK Vol III, there is a footnote which mentions about a ‘nazm’ penned by Kaifi Azmi recited in his own voice in the movie (which on screen is lip synced by none other than Balraj Sahni). When I searched for audio/video of this ‘poem’ it was already available and that is the reason for this post here today.

Today 10th May, is the 18th anniversary of remembrance of Kaif Azmi (14.01.1919 – 10.05.2002). Also, we remember the genius ‘effortless performer’ Balraj Sahni on 1st May (01.05.1913 – 13.04.1973) on his 107th birth anniversary, which was in the previous week.

‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ is produced by Ismat Chugtai under the banner of Film India Corporation, Bombay, and is directed by Shahid Latif. The story and screenplay was also written by Ismat Chugtai herself. Editing of this movie was done by SE Chandiwale.

The star-cast of this movie includes Nutan, Balraj Sahni, Talat Mahmood, Altaf, Amar, Bikram Kapoor, Protima Devi, Chandabai, Sarita Devi, Baij Sharma, Hammad Jafri, Lotan, Bishan Khanna, Jagdish Kamal, Nazeer Kashmiri, Begambai, Zebunissa, Baby Radha, Baby Chagle, Master Patankar, Dhumal and many others.

The movie has eight songs, including two multi version songs. Asha Bhonsle, Talat Mahmood and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by OP Nayyar. I have been familiar with songs like “Pyaar Par Bas To Nahin“, “Raat Bhar Ka Mehmaan Andhera“, “Sach Bataa Tu Mujhpe Fidaa” from this movie since years, and that is the only association with this movie name for me, as I never got to watch this movie. However, since now the movie is available ‘online’, I will watch it sometime in the future.

One more very interesting point about this film. When I checked for title credits for lyricist of this movie it included names of three stalwart poets of Hindi cinema – Sahir, Majrooh and Kaifi. So we can see these three great poets of their time coming together here. I am not aware of any other such instance of coming together of these three great poets. Knowledgeable readers can throw more light on this.

As a tribute to both great film personalities – Kaifi Azmi and Balraj Sahni, whose contributions to the Hindi Cinema will be remembered by the generations to come, let us listen to these poignant yet motivating verses or poetry recitation included in the movie ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’.

 

 

Song – Aaj Ki Raat Bahut Garm Hawa Chalti Hai (Sone Ki Chidiya) (1958) Singer – Kaifi Azmi, Lyrics – Kaifi Azmi, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

aaj ki raat bahut garm hawa chalti hai
aaj ki raat na footpath pe neend aayegi
sab utthho
main bhi utthhoon
tum bhi utthho
tum bhi utthho
koi khidki isi deewaar mein khul jaayegi

ye zameen tab bhi nigal lene pe aamaada thi
paaon jab toot’ti shaakhon se utaare hum ne
in makiinon ko khabar hai
na makaanon ko khabar
un dinon ki jo gufaaon mein guzaare hum ne

sirf khaaqa thha jo sach poochho to khaaqa bhi na thha
jis’se ye qasr ye aiwaan utaare ham ne
haath dhalte gaye saanchon mein to thakte kaise
naqsh ke baad naye naqsh nikhaare hum ne
kee ye deewaar buland aur buland  aur buland
baamon-o-dar aur zaraa aur  sanwaare ham ne
aandhiyaan tod liyaa karti thhi sham’on ki laven
jad diye is liye bijlee ke sitaare hum ne
aandhiyaan tod liyaa karti thhi sham’on ki laven
jad diye is liye bijlee ke sitaare ham ne
ban gayaa qasr to pehre pe koyi baithh gayaa
ban gayaa qasr to pehre pe koyi baithh gayaa
so rahe khaaq pe ham shorish-e-taamiir liye

apni nas nas mein liye mehnat-e-paiham ki thakan
band aankhon mein isi qasr ki tasveer liye
arre, din pighalta hai isi tarah saron par ab tak
raat aankhon mein khatakti hai syaah teer liye
aaj ki raat bahut garm hawaa chalti hai
aaj ki raat na footpath pe neend aayegi
sab utthho
main bhi utthhoon
tum bhi utthho
tum bhi utthho
koi khidki isi deewaar mein khul jaayegi

—————————————————————————————–

आज की रात बहुत गर्म हवा चलती है
आज की  रात न फुटपाथ पे नींद आएगी
सब उठो
मैं भी उठूँ
तुम भी उठो
तुम भी उठो
कोई खिड़की इसी दीवार में खुल जायेगी

ये ज़मीन तब भी निगल लेने पे आमादा थी
पाँव जब टूटती शाखों से उतारे हम ने
इन मकीनों को ख़बर है न मकानों को ख़बर
उन दिनों की जो गुफाओं में गुज़ारें हम ने

सिर्फ ख़ाका था जो सच पूछो तो ख़ाका भी न था
जिससे ये क़स्र ये ऐवान उतारे हम ने
हाथ ढलते गए सांचों में तो थकते कैसे
नक़्श के बाद नए नक़्श निखारे हम ने
की ये दीवार बुलंद और बुलंद और बुलंद
बाम ओ दर और ज़रा और सँवारे हम ने
आंधियां तोड़ लिया करती थी शमओं की लवें
जड़ दिए इस लिए बिजली के सितारे हम ने
आंधियां तोड़ लिया करती थी शमओं की लवें
जड़ दिए इस लिए बिजली के सितारे हम ने
बन गया क़स्र तो पहरे पे कोई बैठ गया
बन गया क़स्र तो पहरे पे कोई बैठ गया
सो रहे ख़ाक पे हम शोरिश ए तामीर लिये

अपनी नस नस में लिये मेहनत ए पैहम की थकन
बन्द आँखों में इसी क़स्र कि तस्वीर लिये
अरे, दिन पिघलता है उसी तरह सरों पर अब तक
रात आँखों में खटकती है सियह तीर लिए

आज की रात बहुत गर्म हवा चलती है
आज की रात न फुटपाथ पे नींद आएगी
सब उठो
मैं भी उठूँ
तुम भी उठो
तुम भी उठो
कोई खिड़की इसी दीवार में खुल जायेगी

“Gopichand”(1958) was produced by Ishwarlal and Prabhudas K Tanna and directed by Ishwarlal for Vasundhara Chitra, Bombay. This mythological movie had Shahu Modak, Shyama, B M Vyas, Prem Adib, Paro, Sundar, Malay Sarkar, Kesari, Salvi, Durga Khote etc in it.

This obscure movie had eight obscure songs in it.

Today (1 may 2020) is the 101st birth anniversary of Manna Dey (1 May 1919 – 24 October 2013). On this occasion, here is a song from “Gopichand”(1958). This song is sung by Manna Dey. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this philosophical song is available. Seeing that Manna Dey was the only male playback singer in this movie, he may have sung this song for the main actor of the movie, namely Shahu Modak.

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

Listening to this philosophical song has calming infuence on the senses. It is just the kind of song that one would like to listen to in view of the recent bereavements in the film industry.

With this song, “Gopichand”(1958) makes its debut in the blog.

ab ye qaidi chhod de

daulat meri baandi isko umar qaid mein daala
kismein himmat hai jo tode motu raam ka taala
arre motu raam ka taala
kyun be mehta
kyun be mehta hai koi jo itna paisa jod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein ab ye kaidi chhod de
chhan chhan karti daulat bole seth tijori tod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein ab ye qaidi chhod de

aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa aa

tere ghar ke saamne aake bhookhon ne gash khaaya
aa aa aa aa aa
o nirmohi seth tujhe kyun inpe raham na aaya
kyun hampe raham na aaya
jeewan naiyya dagmag dole
seth tijori tod de

laakhon hi ka bhala hai isme
ab ye qaidi chhod de
chhan chhan karti daulat bole
seth tijori tod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein
ab ye qaidi chhod de

tere saamne bhookha insaan gas kha kha ke leta
de de sab kuchh gar hai seth karodimal ka beta
seth karodimal ka beta
sun re mehta dil mera bole
seth tijori tod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein
ab ye qaidi chhod de

chhan chhan karti daulat bole
seth tijori tod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein
ab ye qaidi chhod de
chhan chhan karti daulat bole
seth tijori tod de
laakhon hi ka bhala hai ismein
ab ye qaidi chhod de
