It can be seen from the table of 1962 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 129 songs in movies released in 1962. As many as 118 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 40 movies of 1962 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 31 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 11 Lata songs belonging to 9 movies of 1962 that remain as yet undiscussed in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Baghdad Ki Raaten”(1962). This fantasy movie was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Manoj Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shakila, Mahipal, Neeru, Isharlal, Ratnmala, Nagpal, Keshri,, R S Dubey, Leela Mishra, Vimal, Leela Gandhi, Mastan (tiger), Bhagan, Abu Hasan etc in it.

Lata Mangeshkar had sung three solo songs in it. One of these songs has been covered in the past.

Here is another Lata solo from “Baghdad Ki Raaten”(1962). Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Dilip Dholakiya.

This is a rare song. Listening to this song, the first thought that crossed my mind was that this song is a hidden gem that deserved to be better known. It is sad that the song has ended up as an obscure rare song.

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

Today’s song is from the film Sautela Bhai-62. The film was made by Alok Bharti, Bombay. It was directed by Mahesh Kaul and Anil Biswas provided the Music.The cast of the film was, Guru Dutt, Pranoti Bhattacharya, Bipin Gupta, Rajkumar, Ratna, Honey Irani, Sarosh Irani, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Kanhaiyalal etc.etc.

The film was based on a famous novel in Bangla- ” Baikunther will “, written by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee. Many people mix up this novel with another novel- ” Krishnakanter will “, written by Bankim chandra Chatterjee. Films were made on both the novels. This reminds me that in 1932, Bharat Laxmi Pictures of Calcutta had made a film ” Krishkanter will” in Bangla language. When I went into details, I found that a silent film was also made on this novel in 1927 and a Talkie was made in 1932. One more film was also made in 2007. Even a Tamil film was made on this novel -Rohini in 1953. Its storyline was woven around a forged will and it was very popular. Comparatively, Baikunther will was made only once in Bangla and now this in Hindi. This novel was based on a family issue.

The screenplay and dialogues of film Sautela Bhai-62 were by Dev Kishen and Mahesh Kaul had directed it. The story of film Sautela Bhai-62 was….

Baikunth Muzumdar (Bipin Gupta) is a small time grocery merchant, having property and money in a village. After his first wife’s death, who has borne him a child, he gets marries again to Bhawani (Pranoti Bhattacharya). Contrary to everybody’s fears, Bhawani gives her love to Gokul, the infant. When she gets her own son, Vinod, both brothers love each other, like Ram-Laxman. Gokul (Guru Dutt) looks after family business, while Vinod (Rajkumar Khatri) goes to Calcutta for college studies. There, he gets into bad company and starts drinking etc.

Meanwhile, Baikunth dies after making a will, giving all property to Gokul, on wife’s instructions, as she is sure that Gokul will look after Vinod very well. When Vinod comes back, he is taunted by Gokul’s wife and father in law (Kanhaiyalal). Vinod thinks that, being a step brother, Gokul has instigated this. He leaves the house with his mother against her will. He also plans to put a case against Gokul.

When Gokul learns all this, he goes to Vinod’s house, drags him out, beats him and gives away all the property to him in exchange of his love, which he professes with tears. Seeing all this, Vinod repents and realises how much Gokul loves him. He begs pardon and then all is well in the end.

In the star cast, you find 2 names Rajkumar and Sarosh Irani. I remember, when I was new in this Blog group, there was a discussion in 2011 about who this Rajkumar was. It was only later, when I started my research on my project ” Same Name Confusion”, I found that this Rajkumar was different from the ” Jaani” wala Rajkumar.

In fact, I found that there were 5 Rajkumars operating at the same time in the film industry, causing so much confusion that filmology details were mixed up of everybody. The first was Kannada Hero Dr. Rajkumar. However, he never worked in any Hindi film, so no confusion about him.The second was the famous Dialogue master Raaj Kumar ‘Jaani’. Third was Rajkumar Gupta ( from Ranchi), who was the main character in popular film Jagriti-54. He never worked again in any film. Fourth was Raj(u) Kumar, a junior artist, who did minor roles- mostly uncredited-in films like Shri 420-55, Jagte Raho-56. Dilli ka Thug-58, Aaj aur kal-63, Ziddi-64 etc etc..The fifth was this Rajkumar, who mostly worked in Religious and Mythological films. His name was Rajkumar Khatri.

Rajkumar khatri may have been born in or around 1940. He started as a child artiste in films like Janmashtami-50, Jai Mahakali-51 and Insaan-52. His first film as an adult was Shuk Rambha-53, in which he did the role of young Shukdev. He was a fine actor, not extraordinary, but there was something special about his screen presence. Apart from his boyish looks, he had an unspoken charm and emanated an inherent goodness. In his second film “Tulsidas”-54 he played the role of Shri Ram. He was hardly 15-16 year old then. This must be the youngest and most boyish looking Shri Ram ever seen on the screen !

Rajkumar khatri acted in 61 films, mostly Religious and Mythological films (47 to be precise). Not that he did not work in any social films, but such films were less. He was seen in films like Sautela Bhai-62, Aaj aur kal-63, Ustadon ke ustad-63, Ziddi-64, Nai umer ki nai fasal-65 etc etc. Due to his young looks, boyish face and innocent looks, he was generally given roles of younger brother. As Laxman, he acted in 7 films. His last film was probably Chintamanee Surdas-87.

In the mid 80s, when film offers became scarce, he joined Prakash Mehra as an assistant. He used to live in Chembur. He was known as Chhota Rajkumar in the industry. He worked with Prakash Mehra for a long time, as Assistant Director and as also his P.A. Reportedly, he died in September 2014. No further information on him was available. (Thanks to maitrimanthan.com for information.)

Now let us come to the other name Sarosh Irani. Normally the filmgoers are aware of Daisy Irani, Honey Irani or Aruna Irani. Few people even knew Menaka Irani, but hardly anyone knows about Sarosh Irani. Being an unusual name we debated earlier whether this is a Girl’s name or Boy’s. Here is some information on Him….

Sarosh was born to Perin and Noshir Irani on 7 August, 1948 in Bombay. He is third among five siblings, namely, Menka, Bunny, Sarosh, Daisy and Honey. In 1979 he married Mona and the couple is blessed with two lovely daughters, Sabah and Delnaaz. He did his initial schooling in Deolali’s well-known boarding school, The Barnes School. After he joined the film industry he went to St. Teresa’s High School in Bandra.
Sarosh’s first film as a child-actor was Masoom released in 1960. He was finalised to play the eldest of the three siblings in the film. Little Honey Irani was chosen to play his younger sister. The song ‘Nani Teri Morni Ko Mor Le Gaye‘ picturized on her, sung by Ranu Mukherjee.

Sarosh says “Satyen Bose was a good Director. He had a lot of patience, he would wait till we gave the shot just like he had visualised. He would keep encouraging, even enact and show us at times. He was very friendly, never rude. I had a nice time shooting with him. Soon I got offers for Aarti (1962) and Sautela Bhai (1962). I started liking acting.”

Tarachand Barjatya‘s Aarti (1962) was directed by Phani Majumdar. Alok Bharati‘s Sautela Bhai (1962) directed by Mahesh Kaul was based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay‘s “Baikunther Will” and had Pranoti Ghosh, Bipin Gupta, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar and Kanhaiyalal playing pivotal parts. It’s a story of two step-brothers, the elder one a good-hearted rustic played by Guru Dutt and the younger, an educated weakling, spoiled by his crooked friends played by Raj Kumar. The film was honoured with the All India Certificate of Merit for the Third Best Feature Film at the 10th National Film Awards. The film is also known for Guru Dutt’s best ever performance as an actor. Sarosh played his childhood part.

Sarosh did a total of 5 films as a child actor – Masoom (1960), Aarti (1962), Sautela Bhai (1962), Man Mauji (1962) and Grahasti (1963). By the time Grahasti (1963) was released Sarosh was about 15 years old, an age when one is neither a child nor an adult and child stars hardly get acting assignments. In his short acting career Sarosh has left a mark, Masoom (1960) and Sautela Bhai (1962) are among our most loved films. Around 1967 Sarosh joined his brother-in-law Kamran as an assistant director. The first film he assisted on was Watan Se Door (1968) which had Dara Singh and Nishi in leading roles. He assisted Kamran on about six films including Chalbaaz (1969) and Aisa Bhi Hota Hai(1971).

After his stint as a child-actor he and his brother, Bunny started their own construction company, B Irani S Irani. In 1976 looking at favourable opportunities he went to Iran where he worked in the construction business. When the war broke out he was forced by the family to return and he came back to India with his wife towards the end of 1983. On his return he joined his brother Bunny (now retired) who by then was looking after the Irani Cafe, B Merwan which was started by their grandfather.

Since then he hasn’t been associated with the film Industry directly but is glad to see the next generation, his nephews and nieces, Farah Khan, Sajid Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar do well and make a mark in the entertainment industry. ( Thanks to maitrimanthan.com for information.)

The music director Anil Biswas, once upon a time in Top rung and respected as the original composer and a Mentor to many MDs, including C Ramchandra, was on the way to end his musical career. After this film, he only did one more film- by his friend Motilal- Chhoti Chhoti Baten-1965. Then he retired from the films and joined All India Radio at Delhi. Today’s song is sung by Meena Kapoor, Pankaj Mitra and chorus. The song is shot on Dulari and Radhakrishna. The video also shows Pranoti and Bipin Gupta.

Today, November 26, 2020 is the 31st Remembrance Day of Chand Usmani (03/01/1933 – 26/11/1989). She excelled in the roles of a suffering woman – as a wife, a sister and later as a mother. Though she was a fan of Hindi films in her teens, she did not think about an acting career in Hindi films. Her first preference was to complete her higher education in keeping with her family tradition. But her fate was written to be an actress.

Chand Usmani (Full name: Chandbibi Khanam Usmani) was born in a well-educated Pathan family in Agra. After completion of her Matriculation examination in 1949, she came to Mumbai on holiday and was staying with her relatives. During her stay in Mumbai, she saw an advertisement of the Kardar-Kolynos-Teresa Talent Contest which she participated just for a fun. She was surprised when she was selected for the participation in the contest. She was more surprised when, in the final round, she was selected as a runner-up in the contest. Producer-director A R Kardar was one of the sponsors and judges for the contest.

Even though Chand Usmani was a runner-up in the contest, A R Kardar was impressed by her presentations in the contest. He offered her the lead role in ‘Jeewan Jyoti (1953) produced by him and directed by Mahesh Kaul. Her lead actor was Shammi Kapoor for whom it was his debut film as well. The film was a box office failure but Chand Usmani’s role of a suffering wife was appreciated by the critiques.

I had watched Chand Usmani’s debut film ‘Jeewan Jyoti’ (1953) a few years back. Her performance in the role of a suffering wife of Shammi Kapoor was so natural that it did not occur to me at that time that this was her first film. With this film, Chand Usmani got type-casted for the role of a suffering wife and a suffering sister in almost all of her subsequent films of 1950s. She was a discarded wife in otherwise light comedy film, ‘Baraati’ (1954), a suffering beloved of Bharat Bhushan and a sister of villain Pran in ‘Amaanat’ (1955), an innocent flower girl in ‘Baap Re Baap’ (1955), a blind girl in ‘Rangeen Raaten’ (1956), Dilip Kumar’s sister in ‘Naya Daur’ (1957) and Rajendra Kumar’s sister in ‘Do Behanen’ (1959).

Some of the melodious songs pictuirsed on Chand Usmani in her films of 1950s in which she had lead/second lead roles are as under:

Film Song Singer
Jeewan Jyoti (1953) tasweeren banti hai kiranon se chhanti hain Asha Bhosle-Shammi Kapoor
Baaraati (1954) aa phir se mere pyaar ki kismat sanwaar de Lata Mangeshkar
Amaanat (1955) meri wafaayen tumhaari jafaayen Asha Bhosle
Baap Re Baap (1955) raat rangeeli chamke taare aaja sajanwaa Asha Bhosle
Rangeen Raaten (1956) ham jaage jag soye ri aali Lata Mangeshkar
Do Bahenen (1959) jhuk jhuk jhola khaaye re badariya Lata Mangeshkar -Mahendra Kapoor

Chand Usmani’s early films in which she got lead roles did not fare well at the box office except ‘Baap Re Baap’ (1955). She had to switch over to supporting roles by the end of the 1950s and thereafter. Some of her films in the 1960s with supporting roles were ‘April Fool ‘(1964), ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), ‘Kohra’ (1964), ‘Anita’ (1967), ‘Khilona’ (1970), ‘Pehchaan’ (1970), ‘Khel Khel Mein’ (1975), ‘Kaadambari’ (1976), ‘Yaaraana’ (1981) etc. She got the Filmfare Award for the best supporting actor for her role in ‘Pehchaan’ (1970). From mid-70s through 80s, she did elderly roles.

Chand Usmani had a long and active filmy career till her last, spanning over 3 decades during which she worked in around 125 films. Her last released film was ‘Lohe Ke Haath’ (1990) though a couple of her delayed films were released later than 1990.

In an old interview of her in the TV programme, ‘Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan’, Tabassum had ‘chided’ Chand Usmani that she did not do any ‘acting’ in most of her films because she was in reality depicting her own personality. This may be the reason that in most of her films, Chand Usmani’s performances looked natural and convincing. Even in the midst of acting as a suffering woman, she portrays the role of a warm-hearted person with her innocent smiles. In the same interview, Chand Usmani said that she had two regrets which remained with her throughout in her life. First, she did not complete her higher education and second, she did not get chance to do variety of roles in the films.

Chand Usmani was acquainted with Mukul Dutt, when she was working in Bimal Roy’s ‘Prem Patra’ (1962) for which he was Assistant Director to Bimal Roy. Subsequently, they got married. Mukul Dutt directed box office hit films like ‘Aan Milo Sajna’ (1970), ‘Raaste Ka Pathhar’ (1972), ‘Chhalia’ (1973), etc. However, he could not carry the success as director in his subsequent films. He also intermittently worked as lyricists in many Bangla films during 1965-2002.

Chand Usmani died of cancer on November 26, 1989 at the age of 56 leaving behind her son and the husband.

On the occasion of 33rd Remembrance Day of Chand Usmani, I am presenting a song, ‘matwaali muraliya baaji re aadhi raat’ which is picturised on her in the film ‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962). The song is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar on the words of Pandit Shivkumar which is set to music by Roshan.

I like the picturization of the song which gives me a feel of a real rural atmosphere. Just observe how natural Chand Usmani looks while throwing grains to pigeons.

In the beginning of the song under discussion, actors who appears on the screen are Naina, Dinesh and thereafter Nalini Jaywant. When prelude music is played, the song heard in the background is the theme song of the film which is intermittently heard in the background in low sound. The tune of the song under discussion is melodic and both the prelude as well as the interlude music are in keeping with the devotional mood of the song.

With this song, all the six songs (including a two-part song) of ‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962) have been covered in the Blog.

Today, November 16th 2020 is the 53rd Remembrance Day of the music director, Roshan Lal Nagrath (14/07/1917 – 16/11/1967). In 1951, he had composed teri duniya mein dil lagta nahi waapas bula le for ‘Baawre Nain’ (1951).The Almighty seemed to have taken his composition seriously and snatched him away from us early at the age of 50.

Most of Roshan’s song compositions were like poems woven in Hindustani classical music. This was but natural because firstly, he was trained in Hindustani classical music in Marris College of Music (now Bhatkhande Music Institute) in Lucknow in the 1930s. During the same period, he had also learnt Sarod from Ustad Allauddin Khan and later learnt Dilruba/Esraj on his own. Secondly, he worked with illustrious lyricists who were also poets, like Kidar Sharma, Shailendra, Sahir Ludhianvi, Majrooh Sultanpuri, Shakeel Badayuni, Neeraj, Bharat Vyas, Kavi Pradeep etc.

In 1940, Roshan joined All India Radio (AIR), Delhi as a musician where he came into contact with Khurshid Anwar who had joined AIR as Music Programme Producer in 1939. Roshan worked in AIR for about 8 years during which he got the rich experience as a musician for all types of semi-classical music like thumris, dadras, ghazals, qawwalis and also the folk songs. During his stint in AIR, Roshan got married to Ira Moitra who was a regular singer at AIR, Delhi.

In 1948, Roshan decided to shift to Mumbai to try a career in Hindi film industry as a music director. Due to his wife Ira Roshan’s acquaintance with Anil Biswas, Roshan got the first-hand exposure of composing songs for films from Anil Biswas by attending his song recordings. During this period, he also worked with his erstwhile AIR colleague, music director Khurshid Anwar as his music assistant for ‘Singaar’ (1949). After this assignment, it was struggling days for him as he did not have any assignment.

Roshan met Kidar Sharma, producer-director, who had already announced his film, ‘Neki Aur Badi’ (1949) with Snehal Bhatkar as the music director. He found Roshan to be musically talented person. Knowing that Roshan was going through hard days, Kidar Sharma decided to entrust the work of music direction to him with the consent of Snehal Bhatkar. [Incidentally, for ‘Gunaah’ (1953), after one song, Kidar Sharma had replaced Roshan with his consent and entrusted the music direction to Snehal Bhatkar]. Unfortunately, ‘Neki Aur Badi’ (1949) badly flopped at the box office. Roshan was devasted and went into depression. Again, Kidar Sharma came to his rescue and entrusted him the music direction of his next film ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950).

The box office success of ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950) with almost all the 9 songs in the film becoming popular, established Roshan as a successful music director. This success was followed by ‘Ham Log’ (1951), ‘Malhar’ (1951), ‘Anhonee’ (1952), ‘Naubahaar’ (1952), Chaandni Chowk’ (1954) etc. Roshan did not have a good success in the second half of 1950s as a result of which he had taken some ‘B’ grade films’ assignments. In the 1960s, like ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950), Roshan started with ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960) which become one of the biggest block busters of 1960 with all its songs becoming popular.

Career-wise, 1960s were the best period for Roshan. He had a spate of musical successes in ‘Aarati’ (1962), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Dooj Ka Chaand’ (1964), ‘Bheegi Raat’ (1965), ‘Mamta’ (1966), ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967), ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1967) etc.

Mukesh was a friend of Roshan during their Delhi days in the early 40s. With Raj Kapoor in ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950), Mukesh was the obvious choice to sing for Raj Kapoor under his music direction. One can say that it was with Mukesh Roshan started his musical success in ‘Baawre Nain’, ‘Malhaar’ (1951) and ‘Hum Log’ (1951). Incidentally, when Mukesh produced his first film ‘Malhaar’ (1951), he entrusted the music direction to his friend Roshan.

Following the contractual obligation for Mukesh under which he could not sing songs for any other films during the making of ‘Maashooka’ (1953) in which he was the lead actor, Roshan’s collaboration with Mohammed Rafi among other male playback singers began to a greater extent than the earlier period. During 1953-56, Mukesh was concentrating mainly in his acting career and so was Talat Mehmood. This gave Rafi an opportunity to consolidate his collaboration with other music directors. In due course of time, Rafi’s collaboration with Roshan rose to such an extent that post 1954, Rafi became the main male playback singer for Roshan and sang most of the songs for Roshan among the male playback singers. . Among the female playback singers, obviousely, Lata Mangeshkar was Roshan’s main singer followed by Asha Bhosle.

Interestingly, Roshan’s musical career really took off with his association with Mukesh in Baawre Nain’ (1950) and ended with Mukesh in Roshan’s last film, ‘Anokhi Raat’ (1968).

The discussion on Roshan would remain incomplete without discussing his role in making the filmy qawwalis popular. If Madan Mohan was regarded as the king in the musical compositions of ghazals, Roshan was the king of the musical compositions of qawwalis. In ‘Chaandni Chowk’ (1954), Roshan composed his first qawaali – an all ladies qawwali ‘har baat puchhiye ye haqeeqat na puchhiye’. But his most popular qawwalis came from the pen of Sahir Ludhainvi in ‘Baabar’ (1960), Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960), ‘Dil Hi To Hai’ (1963), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963) and ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967).

The piece de resistance among the filmy qawwalis both for Roshan and Sahir Ludhianvi is the immortal na to kaarwaan ki talash hai ……ye ishq ishq hai from ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’ (1960). This is an unique qawwali. To the best of my knowledge, it is Hindi’s films’ longest qawwali (12minutes). It is the only filmy qawwali in which apart from Urdu/Persian/Hindi words, 4 lines in Punjabi and few words in Brijbhasha have been used. It is the only filmy qawwali in which an extensive definition of ‘ishq’ has been outlined to include not only the Sufiyana tradition of love towards God but also the spiritual love of Radha-Krishna, Meerabai, Seeta and Ram, Lord Buddha, Masiha among others. This type of qawwalis can only happen in India beacuse of its composite culture. Both Roshan and Sahir Ludhianvi had spent their formative stages of life in the neighbourhood of muslims and Hindu/Sikhs, respectively.

For Roshan, it was a challenging work to sustain the audience and listeners’ interest in 12-minute qawwali especially at a time when people had no patience to listen to even 3-minute songs in the theatres. It was the ingenuity of Roshan that he composed the qawwali, dividing in three broad segments with varying melodies and rhythms and ending with fast tempo and crescendo. It is also a qawwali in which five playback singers lent their voices – Manna Dey, S D Batish, Asha Bhosle, Sudha Malhotra and Mohammed Rafi.

During his filmy career (1949-1967), Roshan composed around 435 songs in 58 films of which the Blog has covered 347 songs as of date.

On the occasion of the 53rd Remembrance Day of Roshan, I am presenting a melodious song, ‘chheen liya beimaan mera dil’ from ‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962). The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and is picturised on Nalini Jaywant. The words are of Pandit Shivkumar which have been set to music by Roshan. Apparently, the tune of the song is inspired from Roshan’s own song, saari saari raat teri yaad sataaye.

chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
chheen liya re beimaan mera dil

chheen liya re beimaan mera dil
toot na jaaye kahin
toot na jaaye ae

‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962) was produced by Rashid Parwez and was directed by Pandit Anandkumar. The star cast included Nalini Jaywant, Chand Usmani, Naina, Dinesh, David, Leela Mishra, S Nazir, Mukri, Amar, Jagdish Kanwal, Chandabai, Anwaribai etc. The story was written by Pandit Shivkumar who was the elder brother of Pandit Anandkumar. Pandit Shivkumar also wrote lyrics for 5 of the 6 songs. It was a last film for Pandit Anandkumar as a director though he continued to write screen-play and dialogues for few more subsequent films. It was also the last film for Pandit Shivkumar if I go by the tribute given to him in the credit title of the film.

The highlight of the film is that a major part of the story revolves around the three main actresses – Nalini Jaywant, Chand Usmani and Naina. Hence, the six songs in the film were rendered by Lata Mangeshkar who has lip synced for all the three main actresses in the film. All the 6 songs (of which one song has two versions – solo version by Lata and duet version by Suman Kalyanpur and Sudha Malhotra) are very melodious. I am surprised as to why these songs set to music by Roshan are not as well-known as his equivalent songs in other films. As usual, the reason was that the film failed at the box office.

The DVD of the film is available on one of the video sharing platforms. Unfortunately, the film is heavily edited as a result of which there is some problems with the continuity of the story. With this limitation, I am attempting to present a gist of the story of the film below:

Chaudhari Niranjan Singh (S. Nazir) is a wealthy and a powerful landlord having two daughters – Tulsi (Chand Usmani) and Surajmukhi (Naina). In the neighbouhood, Kaudi (Nalini Jaywant) stays with her widowed mother (Leela Mishra). Tulsi, Surajmukhi and Kaudi are friends and they spend most of their time together. They always have some teasing sessions. In one of such sessions about their life partners, Surajmukhi’s says that she would marry a man of her choice while Tulsi says that she would marry a boy as per her father’s wishes. Kaudi on the other hand says that she would never marry in her life. But their fate is written something else.

There is a secret in Chaudhari Niranjan’s life. In the younger days, he had an affair with a widowed girl with whom he had a child out of wedlock. For the sake of family prestige, both the widowed girl and Chaudhari Niranjan decide to keep this as a secret. That child was none other than Tulsi and the widowed mother was also Kaudi’s mother.

After some years, Choudhari Niranjan plans for marrying Tulsi with a boy from his own community. He had selected Sujaan Singh, the son of his close friend as a bridegroom for Tulsi. Chaudhary Niranjan’s community leaders are against this marriage due to Tulsi being a child out of wedlock. But Choudhari goes ahead with the marriage. On the wedding day, when the couple were returning after the marriage, Sujaan is shot dead (probably akin to a honour killing). Tulsi returns to her home as a widow.

After some time, Manvir Singh (Dinesh, who has a double role in the film) along with his father (David) comes to Kaudi’s house for a temporary stay. Manvir Singh has returned from abroad after completing his education. The family had known each other. What surprises everyone is that Manvir Singh resembles Sujaan Singh. Being a guest in Kaudi’s house, both Manvir Singh and Kaudi have some ‘nonk-jhonk’ (light teasing arguments). In this process, Kaudi develops liking for him. Both Tulsi and Surajmukhi had been the childhood friends of Manvir Singh as his father was a friend of Chaudhari Niranjan.

In the meanwhile, Chaudhuri Niranjan is looking for a bridegroom for his second daughter, Surajmukhi and he has already selected Manvir Singh. Surajmukhi is happy about her father’s selection as she also secretly loves him. During the discussion with Manvir Singh’s father, Chaudhary offers 50 acres of land as a dowry which he raises to 100 acres. But Manvir Singh declines to marry a girl on the strength of her father’s money power.

Ever since Manvir Singh has come to stay in Kaudi’s house as a guest, Tulsi gets to see him often. But whenever she sees him or hears when he plays his flute, she gets convulsion and falls on the ground injuring herself. She thinks that her husband Sujaan has resurfaced. Both Kaudi and Surajmukhi tries to convince Tulsi that it is her illusion as he is not Sujaan. But she is not convinced. In this milieu, a situation develops in which all the three girls, Tulsi, Surajmukhi and Kaudi secretly love Manvir Singh but there is no reciprocation from his side to any one of them.

In the meanwhile, in the greed of getting 100 acres of land from Chaudhari Niranjan as dowry for marrying Surajmukhu, Manvir Singh’s father pressurizes the son to agree to marry her. In disgust, Manver Singh leaves the house to meet Chaudhary Niranjan in his mansion. After seeing him, Chaudhari Niranajan is perplexed as he is also surprise to find him resembling Sujaan. Manvir Singh makes it very clear to Chaudhari Niranjan that he has come with intention of his marriage with Tulsi after coming to know of unfortunate events in her life. Chaudhari Niranjan gets angry on Manvir Singh and ask him to leave. Surajmukhi secretly hears this conversation. This news also goes to Tulsi also who show happiness. Later Manvir Singh meets Tulsi to get her nod for the marriage. But after seeing him, she once again gets convulsion from which she does not recover and dies.

With this incidence, Surajmukhi decides to leave her father’s house as she does not need any worldly pleasure. However, Manvir’s father persuades her to return for his own vested interest to getting a fat dowry. Both Chaudhary Niranjan and Manvir Singh’s greedy father think that deck is now cleared for marriage of Surajmukhi with Manvir Singh. But there is a twist in the tale. When all of them arrive at Kaudi’s house, they find that Manvir Singh has already married to Kaudi. After some arguments, wiser counsel prevails on Chaudhari Niranjan Singh and with the consent of Surajmukhi, he agrees to formally get Kaudi married to Manvir Singh at his expenses in his haveli as a penance for his daughter Tulsi.

The film has an unusual story line in the genre of family drama. Pandit Shivkumar’s dialogues are crisp without using long monologues. The language used in the dialogues is a mix of high-sounding Hindi and Urdu words and sounds quite different from the usual ‘Hindustani’ used in the family drama. All the main actors in the film including the new comers Naina and Dinesh have given good performances. For Director Pandit Anandkumar and music director, Roshan, the film is their repeat performances in ‘Naubahaar’ (1952) in regards to the music composition of the songs and the picturization thereof.

Despite good story, good performances by the main actors and melodious songs, why did the film failed to score on the box offices? In my view, the film did not have ‘star value’ in the sense that barring Nalini Jaywant who was already on a declining trajectory on her acting career, none of the other actors had the capacity to attract the cinegoers. There were also no box-office ‘ingredients’ like villain, mujra dances, fights etc. Even the role of Chaudhari Niranjan as the landlord had no villainous character and hence no mujra dances and fights.

‘Zindagi Aur Hum’ (1962) had 6 songs, including a double version song of which 3 songs have been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the 4th song, jaa re jaa re meri chhod chunariya, sung by Lata Mangeshkar to appear on the Blog. The song is written by Pandit Shivkumar which is set to music by Roshan. The song is picturised on Nalini Jaywant.

I have come across on the internet at many places that Shiv Kumar Saroj has been accredited to the songs of this film except one song which is written by Veer Mohammed Puri. However, I have gone by the name given in the credit title which is ‘Pandit Shivkumar’.

I feel that Shiv Kumar Saroj who was a well-known announcer with Radio Ceylon during 1959-68 is a different person than Pandit Shivkumar. It is evident from the credit title of the film where it is mentioned that the film is dedicated to Pandit Shivkumar who could not see his visions realised. This indicates that at the time of release of the film, he was not alive to see his film which he wrote. Pandit Shivkumar started his filmy career in mid 1930s with Prabhat Film Company as writer. Later, his younger brother Pandit Anandkumar joined him. Shiv Kumar Saroj occasionally wrote lyrics for films from 1966 (Naag Mandir) till about mid-1980s.

With this song, only two songs from the film are left to be covered which I propose to cover in my next set of articles slated for this month.

I wonder why Guru Dutt (09/07/1925 – 10/10/1964) who till 1958, had acted in lead roles in films of his own banner only, decided to act in films outside his banner. His first film outside his banner in a lead role was ’12 O Clock’ (1958) followed by ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962), ‘Bharosa’ (1963), ‘Bahurani’ (1963), ‘Suhaagan’ (1964) and ‘Saanjh Aur Savera’ (1964). While his first film outside his banner as a lead actor may be an aberration, some of his later films as an actor outside his banner may probably have been out of financial compulsion following the box office failure of his film ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959).

There is always hidden desire of any intellectual film director to direct a film on a story of his choice and on his terms. But very few producer/financier would agree to produce/finance such a film from the point of view of the commercial consideration. For Guru Dutt, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) and ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) were two such films which he was keen to bring them to the notice of the film audience.

I came to know from an article by Nasreen Muni Kabir in https://scroll.in that the idea of making ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) had virtually begun in 1948 when Guru Dutt had written a story out of the frustration when he came to Mumbai in 1948. The post-partition period was difficult to adjust to a new environment. It was also difficult for the Padukone family to sustain in a big city without work. And Guru Dutt was not getting film offers. So, he wrote the story titled ‘Kashmakash’ making a poet the protagonist who faces the problem in getting his poems published. The story remained in the limbo until he established himself as a film director of repute.

In 1951, in the wake of his commercially hit film, ‘Baazi’ (1951) for which Sahir Ludhianvi had written popular songs, Guru Dutt had become a successful film director. I remember to have watched an interview of a film celebrity during its B/W avatar (I do not recall now as to who was the film celebrity). That film celebrity mentioned that during the making of Baazi’ (1951), Sahir Ludhianvi had given to Guru Dutt a copy of his collections of poems ‘Talkhiyaan’ (1944). Guru Dutt was very much impressed with a couple of nazms which included ‘jinhe naaz hai Hind par wo kahaan hai’. This nazm matched with the gloom of a poet in his story. Guru Dutt had decided to include this nazm whenever he makes the film based on his story, ‘Kashmakash’.

Since Guru Dutt was not sure of getting producer or financier for such a film and also the response on the box office due to gloomy nature of the story, he felt that he will have to take the financial risk in producing the film. For that he required his own resources to make the film as a producer. This explains as to why Guru Dutt, in the meanwhile, concentrated on making saleable light comedy films like ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) and ‘Mr and Mrs 55’ (1955) to fill his coppers for producing a film on a subject for which box office outlook was uncertain.

Abrar Alvi, in Satya Saran’s book ’10 years with Guru Dutt’ (2008) has mentioned that during one of the shooting schedules of ‘Mr and Mrs 55’ he narrated the story of a real life Gulabo, a courtesan to Guru Dutt which fascinated him to give a shape to his story, ‘Kashmakash’. In the meanwhile, he got busy with producing ‘C.I.D’ (1956) which also got the tremendous success at the box office. Now, Guru Dutt was ready to produce and direct the film of his choice. ‘Kashmakash’ became ‘Pyaasa’ (1957). Contrary to Guru Dutt’s expectation, ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) did good business at the box office and also got critics’ appreciation.

Probably, the success of ‘Pyaasa’ (1957) gave Guru Dutt a confidence in producing another of his favourite gloomy subject. That the fame and glamour attached to a successful film director has its cost in terms of personal spaces. A single failure would wipe out all the gains of a successful director earned over the years. A commercial failure would get more highlighted than the appreciation of his brilliant work of the past. The box office failure of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) overshadowed the brilliant work as a director. What hurt Guru Dutt most was not the box office failure but the way the critics slammed him as narcissist and as his own biopic. After a gap of over a decade, Guru Dutt’s box office disaster got recognition as one of the greatest classic Hindi films.

The box office failure of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) has affected the banner, Guru Dutt Films financially. There was not enough money to sustain the staff of Guru Dutt Films. It is during this time, Guru Dutt seems to have found a way of raising funds by acting in the films made outside his own banner during 1962-64. He also took the decision not to direct any films in future. His next two films under his own banner – ‘Chaudhavin Ka Chaand’ (1960) and ‘Sahab Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962) became box office hits, redeeming his film production banners.

‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) was his first film in a lead role outside his banner after the debacle of ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959). The film was directed by Mahesh Kaul. The main star cast included Guru Dutt, Pranoti Ghosh, Bipin Gupta, Rajkumar, Kanhaiyailal, Asit Sen, Bela Bose, Rani, Jeevankala, Radheshyam, etc. The film was based on a story, ‘Baikunther Will’ by Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay.

So far, 4 songs out of 8 from the film have been covered on the Blog. Here is the 5th song, ‘ab laagi naahin chute raama chaahe jiya jaaye’ from ‘Sautela Bhai’ (1962) which is presented here. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Meena Kapoor on the dancers, Rani and Jeevankala, respectively. There is also a male voice in a couple of lines in the song which, I feel, is that of the music director, Anil Biswas. The song was written by Shailendra.

Half-way through the dance, Guru Dutt makes a surprise entry and finds that his step brother (I guess, he is Rajkumar Jr.) is drunk and seen in the midst of the dancers. In a fit of rage, Guru Dutt assaults him. Some of patrons push Guru Dutt out of the courtesan’s house after which the singing and dancing resume.

Blog Day :

4476 Post No. : 15980

Today, October 19, 2020 is the 25th Remembrance Day of Baby Naaz, one of the super child artists of Hindi films who has enthralled the Hindi cinema buffs with her memorable roles. She was a destitute child in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954), the young Paro in ‘Devdas’ (1955), an orphan girl in ‘Do Phool’ (1958), a teenage daughter caught in the marital discord of her parents, Guru Dutt and Veena in ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) and many more roles.

Baby Naaz’s life from her childhood days to teenager has been traumatic and unhappy. Baby Naaz’s undated interview which appeared in ‘Stardust’ magazine sometime in mid-1970 is an indication of how a child has been exploited by her mother by pushing her into Hindi films as a child artist depriving her of schooling and a good childhood to make the family’s life comfortable. In today’s world, Baby Naaz’s case would come in the ambit of child abuse by her mother. From the age of 4, she has been the bread winner for her family when she started performing as a dancer on the road side stage shows. At the age of 8, she became a child artist in Hindi films which continued till her adulthood. In this process, Baby Naaz struggled with her 3-4 shifts of shooting a day depriving her of a normal childhood.

Based on Naaz’s interview mentioned above and also on Khalid Mohamed’s article in ‘The Daily Eyes’- July 8, 2020 and an article which appeared in December 29, 2017 issue of ‘Jansatta’, the life story of Naaz has been sumarised below:

Baby Naaz, (Real name: Salma Baig) was born in Mumbai on 20/08/1944 in a poor family. Her father, Mirza Dawood Baig was a story writer who was trying his luck to sell his stories for Hindi films but was unsuccessful. He remained unemployed beside being a sickly person. Baby Naaz’s mother was an ambitious lady who pushed Baby Naaz to Hindi films as a child artist so that with her income, she can run the house and have a comfortable life. Her father was against his daughter working in the film. But due to the extreme financial problem faced by the family, he reluctantly agreed to his friend, Lekhraj Bhakri’s request to let her do a childhood role of Suraiya in ‘Resham’ (1952). Salma Baig was given a screen name, ‘Baby Naaz’.

Due to her busy shooting schedules, Baby Naaz could not attend the school regularly for which she was rusticated. For the same reason, she had no time for enjoying her childhood. On the other hand, there was constant fights between her father and mother. Deprived of a normal childhood with love and affection from her parents, Baby Naaz twice attempted suicide by jumping into a well at the age of 10 but was saved by her maid servant.

When Naaz was 12, her parents separated and she started living with her mother. About 4 years later, her mother remarried to a film cameraman and shifted to her husband’s house. Slowly, she realised that she was the sole bread winner not only for her mother but also for her lover who had now become her step-father.

Baby Naaz came into limelight as a child artist in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954) in which she played the role of a destitute child along with Master Rattan. She enacted the emotional scenes as well as comedy acts very well. The film was shown in Cannes’ International Film Festival in 1955 where both Baby Naaz and Master Rattan were tied to receive the special commendations from the Jury. With this, Baby Naaz became the most sought-after child artist and worked in a spate of films during 1954-59. Around 1960 onwards, Naaz started getting roles as a major, mostly as a character actor though in a few films, she had also got the lead roles in ‘B’ grade films.

During the shooting of ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), Naaz became close to Subbiraj, a nephew of Prithviraj Kapoor. Both of them had the second lead roles and decided to convert their closeness into a marriage. However, families from both sides were against this marriage. Their courtship continued for 5 years. It was during the shooting of ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), in which they were in the lead roles, they got married during the outdoor shooting of the film in Pratapgarh Fort. They returned to Mumbai as a married couple.

After the marriage, Naaz felt for the first time that she had got the love and affection which she had missed in her childhood. After the marriage, Naaz had to cut down her assignments in the films due to household responsibilities. In the 1970s, she started working with Kalyanji-Anandji for their musical programmes as a compere. In the 1980s, she almost stopped acting in the films as she had become a dubbing artist for some actresses from the south especially for Sridevi.

After a traumatic childhood and teens, Naaz was happy with her married life. When the time came for her to enjoy a life of contentment with her husband and two children, a tragedy struck in her life. In 1995, Naaz was diagnosed with cancer which was on a terminal stage. She breathed her last on October 19, 1995 when she was 51.

Baby Naaz worked in around 125 Hindi films during 1952-86 of which she worked as a child artist in about 50 films. In the 1960s, Naaz got opportunity to work as a lead/second lead actor in ‘Lambe Haath’ (1960), ‘Mera Ghar Mere Bachche’ (1960), ‘Gangu’ (1962), ‘Dekha Pyaar Tumhaara’ (1963), ‘Chaar Darvesh’ (1964), ‘Rocket Girl’ (1965) and Chhaila Babu’ (1967). However, these films did not do well at the box office.

After her marriage in 1963, Naaz restricted her film appearances by choosing the films in which the roles interested her. I find that post-marriage, most of the films in which she acted belonged to big banners and under good directors like M Sadiq in ‘Bahu Begum’ (1967), Sateyn Bose in ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967), Lekh Tandon in ‘Jahaan Pyaar Miley’ (1969), Manmohan Desai in ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (1970), Dulal Guha in ‘Dushman’ (1972). Hrishikesh Mukherjee in ‘Phir Kab Milogi’ (1974), Asit Sen in ‘Bairaag’ (1976), B R Chopra in ‘Karm’ (1977), Basu Chatterjee in ‘Sheesha’ (1986) etc.

On the occasion of the 25th Remembrance Day of Naaz, I present a song from ‘Gangu’ (1962) which was one of her films with a lead role for her. The film was directed by Promod Chakravarty. The song is ‘kya kaha zara phir kaho’ which is a duet sung by Subir Sen and Geeta Dutt. The song is written by Prem Dhawan is picturised on Chandrashekhar and Naaz which is set to music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Thge remaining one song (Nazar se mil hi jaayegi nazar aahista aahistaa) could not be located so far, and therefore tyhis movie is still upYIPPEED.

That leaves us with “Girls’ Hostel”(1962). This movie had made its debut in the blog ten years ago. So far four songs (out of six) have been covered in the blog. Here are their details:-

Song Date
Suljhaao na uljhi zulfon ko 10 september 2010
Ye haseen raat ye bahaar ye samaan 10 December 2010
Bartan kalai karaa lo 20 October 2012

Today, as “blog Ten Year Challenge”, here is the fifth song from “Girls’ Hostel”(1962) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gulshan Baawra is the lyricist (as can be seen from the label on the record for this song in the link). Music is composed by Ravi.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. Going by the sounds of it, and considering the star cast, this song could well have been picturised on Cuckkoo as a club dance song. I request our knopwledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Dekho ji mera dil
