Today’s song is from an obscure C grade action film Chini Jadugar-1959.

The film was made under the banner of Noshirwan Movietone, Bombay, – possibly owned by the director of this film – Noshir Engineer. He was also its Producer. He was a specialist director of action/stunt/costume films. He directed 7 films, starting with the film Inteqam-1947. The came Shamsheerbaz-53,Carnival Queen-55, Diler Daku-57, Circus Queen-59, Chini Jadugar-59 and lastly it was Noor Mahal-1965, In 5 of these films the MD was Shafi M Nagari.

The composer for the film Chini Jadugar-59 was ‘Shafi M. Nagri’. It was a riddle. Who was this Shafi Nagri ? In a few films, his name also appeared as Shafi Nagri. I was tired of searching for information in books and on the Internet, about this Shafi. Finally, the riddle was solved by Shri Girdharilal ji Vishwakarma, the famous Historian and Collector of songs. He explained that this person was none other than Shafi mohd. Nagri -popularly known as Mohd. Shafi !

Composer Mohd. Shafi ( 25-12-1925 to 30-4-1980 ) was one of those talented artistes of Hindi Film Music who was only used by others and never got enough credit for his work.He is honoured as “The original Arranger” in the industry.He was an excellent Sitar player. He started with the Imperial Film company-where he played Bulbul Tarang. In 1937 he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and played Sitar in films Kapal Kundala-39 and Aandhi-40, as an assistant to Pankaj Mullick and K.C.Dey. He played the sitar in the film “Ujala”-42. In this film, the Hero-Prithviraj kapoor was shown as a Sitar player,hence the expertise of Shafi was fully utilised in this film.

Starting with the film ‘Haqdaar’-46, he gave music to 19 Hindi films and 2 Marathi films. He worked with Naushad, as his assistant and Arranger, for 14 years.He was considered a ‘Dada’ in Background music.He gave Background music to about 70 films( for Naushad and others). For Mughal E Azam, K.Asif used to send his personal car to fetch him to studio. It was said that Shafi gave the first break to Suman Hemmadi(Kalyanpur) in Mangu-54 and Hemlata in the unreleased film Iraada.

Shafi had bought his first car when he was just 15 year old. He had a posh flat in Shivaji Park area of Dadar in Bombay. In the end , everything was gone.He had helped families of Shakeel Badayuni and Ghulam Mohammed after their deaths. However in his last difficult days , except Rafi, no one came for his help. In the final few months, his memory had gone. His Begum ruefully said,” Good that he does not remember anything. All took his advantage and gave him nothing. There were more things to forget than to remember ! ”

It is said that the entire music of Sohni Mahiwal-58 was done by him. Naushad was sick during this period and did not attend even one recording. “Do hanson ka joda” and “Dhoondo dhoondo re saajna” Gunga Jamuna-61 were his creations. He used to give tunes to many composers too-whoever asked for help.

It is believed that Shafi also acted in 2 films, namely Jungi Jawan-43 and Diler Detective-48. As a MD, he gave music to 19 films and composed 125 songs.

Film Chini jadugar-1959 had music by Shafi M Nagari. Now, who is this composer ? A search on HFGK gives names of films for him, namely Krishna Kanhaiya-52, Shamsheerbaz-53, Sher dil-54, Carnival Queen-55, Diler Daku-57, Circus Queen-59 and Chini Jadugar-59. Well known Music expert and collector Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has confirmed that it is none other than composer Mohd. Shafi only. In this name he gave music to 7 films and composed 48 songs.

During the Studio system and later on, few known MDs too availed of this trick to find a way out of the rules. For example, Snehal Bhatkar used different names to give music as long as he worked in HMV. C.Ramchandra used the name Annasaheb or P Ramakant when giving music to action/stunt films, Lata Mangeshkar gave music in the name of Anandghan, Hafiz Khan Mastana used the alias Gunjan and S D Batish used Nirmal Kumar. So, it is no wonder that while assisting Naushad for so many years, Mohd. Shafi used an alias for giving music to outside films.

The cast of the film Chini Jadugar consisted of Kamran, Krishnakumari,Shaikh, Habeeb,Vasantrao pehelwan, Ismail,Rajni, Moti (Dog), Ustad (Horse) and many others. Kamran was the Hero. Kamran khan Rizvi was a regular Stunt Hero and I used to enjoy his films. He started his film career with Baghi Sipahi-36, a film made by East India Film Co, Calcutta. A.R.Kardar was its Director. Later on Kamran came to Bombay, along with kardar, who was his Patron for quite some time.

Hero Kamran and Heroine Nazi was a popular combination of 12 stunt films, those days. Kamran worked in 52 films. In 1963, film Bachpan was being directed by Nazar Ahmed. He had some disputes with the Producer and he left the film midway. The Debutant Hero Salim ( father of actor Salman Khan) and Debutant Heroine Menaka ( Eldest sister of Daisy and Honey Irani…all daughters of Mrs. P.N. Irani, a greedy mother, who spoiled the childhood of her children for money) were in trouble. Kamran stepped in and completed the film by directing the balance part, without taking any money. During this period, he fell in love with Menaka and they got married. Her film career ended there only. They had one son and one daughter ( Actor, compere, Director Sajid Khan and famous Choreographer and Director Farah khan).

Kamran stopped getting Hero’s roles, as stunt films were not being made to that extent in the 70s and later period. He decided to become producer and Director. This proved to be his nemesis. He failed miserably,lost everything and became an alcoholic. He divorced Menaka, who worked as a Housekeeper in a 5 star hotel (Hotel Sea Rock) and he lived in his big flat in Versova with 2 children but no money. He died in 1985.

Kamran directed 11 films from Panch Ratan-65 to Ban Manush-80. His last film as an actor was Nastik-83.

In the cast there is the name of an actor, Shaikh. Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films,as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 7 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade film comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt,fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main singer in the iconic qawali, “Humen to loot liya milke husn walon ne ‘ from the film Al Hilal-58. (It was the 5000th song on this Blog)

He had directed 2 films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji Palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

Today’s song is a duet, sung by S.Balbir and Suhasini Kolhapure. She sang only 6 songs in 5 films like Sabse bada Rupiah-55, Shahi bazar-57, Chini Jadugar-59, Laalach-60 and Saaya-61., before disappearing without a trace.

With this song, film Chini Jadugar-59 makes a Debut on the Blog.

behki fizaayen
dil kyun machal na jaaye
Ye rut haseen ye raahen

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 9
————————————————————————————–

Today (18 January 2022) is a foggy wintery shivery morning in North India. To add to this woe, the nation is also into the grips of the third wave of Covid-19 virus.

This day ten years ago, viz 18 january 2012 was almost world apart. Those days I was in a stage of transition, viz I had been transferred to Bilaspur, but my attachmnent from Nagpur was still there, where I still had my accomodation. Since I had not got my accomodation at Bilaspur where I had been transferred, I would go back to Nagpur during weekends and holidaysat the first available opportunity.

Even without any proper accomodation, I had settled down well into my blogging, even if the rate of daily posts had gone down a bit.

It is clear that 18 January 2012 was no where near as difficult a day as 18 january 2022. Unlike today, when I woke up late and that too reluctantly, I has woken up early ten years ago as was my wont. Six songs were covered on that day. All these songs got covered before noon.

Here are the details of the songs covered in the blog ten years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5313 Bichhde huye pardesi Barsaat(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
5314 Apni nazar se unki nazar tak Ham Log (1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
5315 Muhabbat karne waale kis qadar majboor hote hain Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs covered out of 12 by now
5316 Boley ye dil ka ishaara Santaan (1959) 3 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5317 Jaan chali jaaye jiyaa nahin jaaye Anjaana (1969) Movie YIPPEED by now
5318 Tere sang pyaar main nahin todna Naagin (1976) Movie YIPPEED by now

One can notice that “Santaan”(1959) is one of the movies that is not yet YIPPEED. So this movie is still eligible for Blog ten year challenge today.

So, as blog ten year challenge, here is a song from “Santaan”(1959). The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dattaram.

The song is picturised on Kamini Kadam as a “aaj main jawaan ho gayi hoon” genre of song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

“Pyaar Ki Raahen”(1959) was directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Thakur Pictures Production, Bombay. The obscure movie had Pradeep Kumar, Anita Guha, Pran, Kuldeep Kaur,Helen, Sunder, Tiwari, Om Prakash, Jeevan, etc in it.

Here are the details of thismovie, as recounted by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia:

Kundanlal is a zamindar, who lives with his younger step brother Prakash(Pradeep Kumar), wife Gangajali(Kuldip Kaur) and Lali(Anita Guha), sister of Gangajali. This Gangajali hates Prakash and is opposed to his love with Lali. Finally, she is successful in driving him out of the house and the town. Then she fixes Lali’s marriage with Nandlal, the son Rajaram, a rich, but stingy man from Lucknow.

His elder son Amarnath is a TB patient. Inspite of the opposition of Kundanlal, Lali is ready to marry Nandlal. At the time of marriage, Rajaram brings Amarnath-TB patient as the bridegroom and Lali gets married unknowingly to Amarnath. When they return to Lucknow, Amar dies and Lali becomes widow. Rajaram puts the entire blame on Lali and starts torturing her like a mother-in-law. Despite all this Lali decides to stay there and look after that family. Slowly,Rajaram changes his mind about Lali, looking at her dutifulness and devotion to family.
Finally, Rajaram himself finds out Prakash and marries Lali off to him.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

a melancholic song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kanu Ghosh.

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


Song-Ham bhi is duniya mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain (Pyaar Ki Raahen)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Kanu Ghosh

Lyrics

hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
ik khushi maangi jo hamne saikado gham paaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
dil ki har ik aarzoo dil mein hi ghut ke reh gayi
har tamanna har khushi ik ashq banke beh gai
kya thhikaana unka jo kismat ke hi thhukraaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
zindagi ke dene waale ye bhi kya hai zindagi
jee rahe hain is tarah jaise saza hai zindagi
kuchh na poochho is jahaan ne kaise din dikhlaaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya taqdeer leker aaye hain
hum bhi is duniyaa mein kya

When I saw this song on You Tube, a few days ago, I was very happy. This was one of the most popular Lories in those days – and naturally so, because it was composed by the melody King Chitragupt and was sung by the melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar. In one of her interviews to Film fare, she had said ” I like to sing songs of Chitragupt ji and I particularly liked the lori ‘ Chanda loriyan sunaaye’ from film Naya Sansar-1959.”

I was pleasantly surprised to know that this famous Lori was yet to be posted on our Blog. Surely, it fits into the song category of “How I forgot to post this song earlier”. I believe, this song was waiting for me only !

Lories have been a part of many films, where a family life is the main plank of the film story. The earliest famous Lori was the one sung by K L Saigal – “So ja Raajkumari so jaa”, from film Zindagi-1940. Earlier to that also there were many- as many as 15- Lories in the films right from film Radhe Shyam aka Zulm E Kans-1932, in which Devki (Phool kumari) sings a Lori for her child (Shri krishna), asking him not to cry loudly, lest Kans will come and kill him. -” so ja tu mere lal chu ke se, voh Paapi aa jaye”. Then there was ” Dheere dheere aa re Badal” sung by Amirbai and Arunkumar in film Kismet-1943. Many more Lories subsequently became popular, but today’s Lori was more popular and famous.

Film Naya Sansar was produced by Darshan Malhotra for his own banner Shri krishna Films. It was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. This was a rare occasion when Nanabhai Bhatt directed a Social film. Normally he was equated with B and C grade action and Mythological films only.

Director Nanabhai Bhatt ( 12-6-1915 to 24-4-1999). He was a director in many films.He directed mostly Mythological and stunt films only. Nanabhai was born as Yashwant ( pet name – Batuk) at Porbandar. Since he was the younger one he was called Nanabhai ( opposite to Motabhai-elder brother). This name continued till the end. His father was a doctor. After matriculation, he went to Mumbai in 1934, where his elder brother Balwant Bhatt was working. Balwant started with Imperial,shifted to Sagar and now was with Prakash pictures of Vijay and Shankar Bhatt. He got Nanabhai a job as Sound Recordist.Soon he graduated as Production Executive.He also wrote several screenplays.

In 1942 he directed “Muqabala”, for Homi Wadia, as Batuk Bhatt. Homi Wadia became his good friend. When Homi established his own Basant Pictures, Nanabhai joined him and directed his “Hunterwali ki Beti”-43, with Nadia again. He also did mauj, Jee Haan, Chaalis Karod etc. He directed about 50 films of various genres like Stunts, Mythologicals,crime, social, costume etc.

Nanabhai’s first wife was Hemlata. He also married Shirin banu, his Heroine of few films. To circumvent the Bigamy law, he married her in a Temple and that too in the presence of Hemlata ! He had 3 children from Hemlata and 6 from Shirin. Mukesh and Mahesh Bhatt are from Shirin.

The music was by Chitragupt and the film cast was Jayashree Gadkar, pradeep kumar, nanda dhumal, Tuntun, Sundar, Shammi, majnu and dancers Sheila Vaz, Sai Subbulakshmi and Kamla Laxman. The heroine Jayashree Gadkar was a very popular and busy actress in marathi cinema. I was surprised to learn that she had acted in 73 hindi films. Despite this number, she was not famous in Hindi films because she got only B and C grade action and Mythological films in Hindi.

Jayshree Gadkar (21 February 1942 – 29 August 2008) was a noted Marathi and Hindi movie actress and a star of Marathi cinema from the 1950s up to the 1980s.

Jayshree was born into a Konkani-speaking family at Kanasgiri (Sadashivgad) near Karwar in the Uttara Kannada district of Karnataka, India. She married Bal Dhuri, a theatre actor best known for his portrayal of Dashratha in Ramanand Sagar’s TV serial, Ramayana (where Jayashree herself played his wife, Kaushalya). She also published an autobiography, Ashi Mi Jayshri.

She began her career as a child dance artist. She entered films as a tamasha dancer in movies. Her first role was that of a group dancer in V. Shantaram’s Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baaje in 1955, which featured Sandhya as the leading lady. Later, well known Marathi film Director Dinkar D Patil cast her in a small role with dance in his Marathi film Disat Tasa Nasat, opposite Raja Gosavi. This was followed by Sangtye Aika, a tamasha-based movie which was the first in which she played a leading role. This helped her gain fame and recognition and she started doing heroine roles. She eventually became one of the most successful and prolific heriones in the history of the Marathi film industry.

Many remember her for the famous song Bugdi mazi saandli ga jata sataryala. But Jayshree Gadkar was much more than that. She was not only a versatile and accomplished actress but the face of Marathi cinema in its golden era. This paved her way into mainstream Marathi cinema.

Later, both Raja Gosavi and Jayshree gave many hits as a pair, like Aaliya Bhogasi [her first film], Utavla Navara, Yala Jeevan Aise Nav, Awaghachi Sansar and Paishacha Paus. Gath Padli Thakathaka was her first major role. Jayashree got a lot of success as a heroine in movies based on tamasha and lavni, the trend at the time.

Her film Saangtye (1959) ran for 132 weeks in a theater. Her terrific dance performance in Bugdi mazi saandli ga became a craze among Marathi viewers. She was paired with the most popular heroes of the time like Suryakant (Pancharati, Rangpanchmi, Vaijayanta) and Arun Sarnike (Sawal Maza Aika, Ek Gav baara Bhangadi, Gangaulan).

Manini was a turning point in her career. She was paired with Chandrakant Gokhle. She went on to act with his son Vikram Gokhle too, in films like Utavla Navra and Subhdra Haran.

Gadkar also acted in historical movies like Mohityaanchi Manjula and Shahir Parshuram. She won many accolades and awards at the national and state level. She was also felicitated with the state government’s V Shantaram Purskar, Gadima Purskar, P Savlaram Purskar and many more. She married co-star Bal Dhuri in 1975, and directed two films, Sasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu.

Jayshree acted in about 250 films over a period of four decades. Her filmography was varied and included a rich repertoire of tamasha stories as also mythologicals in addition to socials and love stories.

In later years, Jayshree turned film director. Her directorial efforts include Saasar Maher and Ashi Asavi Saasu. She also acted in Ramanand Sagar’s TV Series Ramayana, as Kaushalya (mother of Rama) along with her husband Bal Dhuri, who was Dasharath (father of Rama). Her home is adorned with the photo of both in Ramayana costume. Her Autobiography Ashi Me Jayshree was published in 1986. Gadkar had received awards for her part in the films Manini, Vaijantha, Sawaal Majha Aika! and Saadhi Mansa.

Surprisingly, Jayashree Gadkar had acted in as many as 73 Hindi films. Her first film was Jhanak Jhanak Payal Baje-55 and the last film was Lav kush-97. However another film which was delayed came in 2009 was Jai jai Santoshi Maa. (Thanks to wiki, rediff.com, muVyz, HFGK and my notes).

Let us now enjoy the sweet lori from this film.


Song- Chanda Loriyan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye(Naya Sansaar)(1959) Singer- Lata Mangeshkar, Lyricist- Rajindra Krishan, MD- Chitragupta

Lyrics

chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaye mere laal ko

barson shaam savere maa ne roya dil ka dukhda
barson shaam savere maa ne roya dil ka dukhda
tab ja ke bhagwaan ne baksha ik chaand ka tukda
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko

khelega jab mere angna khel ye pyaare pyaare
khelega jab mere angna khel ye pyaare pyaare
khelan ko tab laayegi maa neel gagan ke taare
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko

baandh ka sehra banega jis din dulha mera raaja
baandh ka sehra banega jis din dulha mera raaja
khushiyon ki baaraat sajegi armaanon ka baaja
chanda loriyaan sunaaye hawa jhoolna jhulaaye
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko
raani nindiya sulaaye mere laal ko

When film making started in India, most films-i.e. about 98 %, were based on Religious Mythological or Folk stories. Even in that early era, there were Producers and Directors, who dared to make films on unusual but interesting subjects like Fictional kingdoms, highly scientific discoveries etc. Worth mentioning are a few films like Prabhat’s ‘ Wahan alias Beyond the Horizon’-1937, Prakash pictures’ ‘Mr. X’-38, Ranjit’s ‘ Prof. Waman M.Sc.’, Sagar’s ‘ 300 days and after’-38, Adarsha Chitra, Calcutta’s ‘ India in Africa’-1939 (first film to do shooting outside India, in foreign countries), Sagar’s ‘ Mahageet ‘-37 and the best film by Prakash Pictures-” Khwaab ki duniya’-1937. ( there may be some more such films too).

Not all such offbeat films succeeded, but surely they provided a Ray of Hope that Indian cinema will surely come out of this beaten track and grandma stories. I am not very sure, but I have a strong feeling that during the early films of the 40s, a few C grade action and stunt films too were made on such offbeat themes. One such film is Master Bhagwan’s ” Bhedi Bungala alias House of Mystery “-1949, India’s first Horror film. ( during the shooting, in one scene Bhagwan had to keep his eyes wide open-as if in fear. He stretched them so much and for such a long time that for one day he lost sight of both eyes. After the doctor’s treatment he regained his vision. Can we expect such dedication in today’s actors, in general ?).

For lack of proper documentation, we are unable to comment on such films of yore. As far back as 1936, Prabhat film company had made a film on Mutiny on the sea by a brave woman- Amar Jyoti-1936, featuring a new heroine- Durga Khote. Life on ships and sword fighting by a woman was mesmerising the audience.

The celestial entities have always enticed the Human Race. They were effectively used in sciences like Astrology and Astronomy. Since time immemorial Man always wanted to visit these planets sans The Sun. Moon was the centre of attraction. Could the Hindi filmmakers keep off from making a film on this theme ? Most kept off ! They , perhaps, thought it safe to use The Moon (चांद ) only in songs and dialogues. However, going through the list of film titles, I found that films using the word Chand in the titles were made, but barring a few C grade stunt and action films, this ‘ Chand ‘ was alluding to something else like the Lover, beloved and other similar things.

Film titled only Chaand were made in -1934,1944 and 1959. Then there were 13 films having ‘ Chand ‘ in their titles. As far as I gather, there were only 2 films made on fictional stories involving the Planet Moon. One was Chand ki Duniya-1959 and the other was Chand pe Chadhai (Trip to the Moon)-1967.

Today’s song is from film Chaand ki duniya-59. It is quite a long song….7.41 minutes to be exact. the video reveals that the song is filmed on the Hero Soham Kapila, the heroine Nalini Chonkar and the comedian Ram Avtar. If you remember, he had a hilarious role in film Teesri manzil-1966 as a co-passenger of Shammi Kapoor.

Ram Avtar Pandey, from Rampur-UP, started his filmi career in 1938 with character roles. In the early 50s, he switched to comedy, when he gained weight and a pot belly. Ram Avtar was a fixture in many Nasir Hussain films. His roles in Badi Behan-49,Nagin-54, Hum sub chor hain-56, Tumsa nahin dekha-57, Jab pyar kisi se hota hai-61, Phir vohi dil laya hoon-63, Teesri Manzil-67, Yaadon ki Baraat etc are memorable. His last film was Prem Geet-1981. He acted in 133 Hindi films.

The film was made by Filmistan, a big banner. Unfortunately, it was made as a quicky, without much interest. The film was directed by Mohan Sinha (grandfather of actress Vidya Sinha, of Rajnigandha-74 fame). The MD was Nirmal Kumar alias S.D.Batish.

Many composers gave music to C grade films using Pseudonyms. For example, C. Ramchandra gave music to action films in the name of ” Annasaheb”, S D Batish used the name Nirmal Kumar, Durrani used Gunjan as his name, to quote a few examples. But one name hardly anyone knows and that is Anil Biswas. Yes, when he gave music to film Begunah-1949, he used the name as Haribhai. His co-MD was Shyamu- which was C. Ramchandra ! This information is given in The Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema by Rajadhyaksha.

The cast of the film was Sohan Kapila, Nalini Chonkar, Ram Avtar, P. Kailash, Badri Prasad, Husn Bano, Indira Bansal, B M Vyas, Vijay Kumar, Noor (wife of Johnny Walker) etc etc. the banner was good, story was fine, songs were good, MD was good, Heroine and Director were good. The whole problem was with the dumb Hero- Sohan Kapila. he was one actor who was a Non Actor.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj, Shammi and Shashi, who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of the famous family members, these and such many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given a fair opportunity to display their talent on the screen, but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar ,which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director, who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan.

Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar. But the movie flopped, as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan, who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from scene for ever. His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued film career, but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him, who got chances to appearopposite illustrious heroines, unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen, no film maker came forward to sign them again. Out of sight is out of mind, it was a matter of time when public as well as film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951. It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan. The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabaadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films, among hundreds of aspirants. Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge set back when Aman flopped. He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia, opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately, Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea, Rattan Chopra understood and wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physique, but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards film industry .Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting. The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev Kapoor, Manish Kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop Kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak Kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

With all this no wonder the film was a flop and a good story was wasted. Today’s song is the 4th song of this film on the Blog. But the song is good. Enjoy….
