VINTAGE SHAMSHAD BEGUM….Song No. 3
——————————————-

Today’s song is from film Namumkin-46. It is a duet of Shamshad Begum and K.S.Ragi.

We are accustomed to see only the usual regular well known names, but when some new or unknown name appears, our brows are raised and we wonder who this singer is. Same thoughts came to my mind when I first came across his name few years back. One would immediately think of the singers in a Gurudwara, who are also called Raagis. I tried and tried very hard, but except that he hailed from Andhra pradesh, I could not get any other information on him. Then one fine morning K S Ragi’s daughter appeared on RMIM forum and gave some more information. Though even this was very meagre, still at least something was there.

THE VIBRANT 40s (Episode No. 2)
——————————–
In the first episode, we have described the period of 40s as the decade of experimentation and changes. Stunt films had started from the era of silent films itself, but sporadically. This genre prospered in the 40s as many films featuring deadly stunt scenes( actually done, not trick scenes) came on the screen. Among the actors who were famous for stunt films in the 40s were Master Vithal, Master Bhagwan, Fearless Nadia and few others. But no one became as successful and popular as Fearless Nadia in stunt film genre. Fearless Nadia who became famous from her First stunt film ” Hunterwali”-1935 itself, worked exclusively for Wadia Brothers, who discovered her. She worked for Wadia Movietone from 1933 to 1942 and for Basant Pictures from 43 to upto her retirement. She worked in 37 films in all. Her first film was ‘Lal e Yaman’-1933 and the last one was ‘ Khiladi’-1958.

Chaar Chaand -1953 was one of those non-descript movies which leave no trace behind them, once they go off the screen.

I had not seen this film and I did not get any information about this film anywhere on the net or in any books or magazines. With a star cast of B grade, like Shyama, Suresh, Bhagwan, Shaikh, Majnu, Cuckoo etc, even its production banner was not well known- Fine art films, Bombay.
