Today’s song is a duet from the film Wamiq Azra-1946.

Ask anyone to name a famous love pair and the answer would be Romeo and Juliet, Laila Majnu or Shirin Farhad. These are all lovebirds from foreign lands. In fact Romeo and Juliet never even existed, they are the fictional char acters from the drama “Romeo and Juliet” written by William Shakespeare in 1597 a.d. Layla-Majnun pair was from Arabia and Shirin and Khusro Farhad were from Persia or Iran. Likewise Wamiq and Azra were also from Persia.

There are several love pairs from our own Indian Mythology and Indian History, but most people do not either know about them or they simply do not remember, till reminded. So much for the knowledge of our own history ! How many of us really know about the love pairs from our Mythology, is a question better left unasked !

The famous Subhadra and Arjun pair, the Uttara- Abhimanyu pair which culminated in the sad end of Abhimanyu, and Usha- Aniruddha are some of the interesting love stories of Mythology. Surprisingly, there seem to be no love stories from Ramayana and all these are from Mahabharat or during the Krishn Avtar. And why not, when Krishna himself had Radha as his Love-mate.

Indian History too is replete with love stories like Jodha-Akbar, Salim- Anarkali, Bajirao -Mastani, Prithviraj-Sanyogita, Amrapali-Bimbisara, Mumal- Mahendra, Amaravati- Ambikapathy (Tamilnad) etc.etc.

In addition there are the Folk Love stories of India. India is a unique country in the world. ” Vividhata mein ekta” (विविधता में एकता ). A country which has 28 states and 9 UTs, 22 languages mentioned in its Constitution, 30 languages spoken by 30 lakh people each, 122 languages spoken by more than 10000 people each and 1652 languages spoken in all the country. So many religions are living amicably for thousands of years and still the country is ONE unit, when the Nation needs it. Proving all the Pundits of the world saying that India will break into pieces after independence, we are stronger and more developed by the day. So, what is the secret ?

The secret is its Culture, which keeps all faiths and languages bound together. In India, Culture is greater than and a bigger influence than individual religions. The flexibility, adaptability and readiness to make changes by the majority section, is the secret. This makes India the biggest Democracy in the world today. The entire world looks up to us as a final Saviour.

Culture and Folklore have bound Indians together. In every state there are its own Folk tales, Folk Dances and Folk Music. Still, some common Folklore is famous all over the country. Though every region has its own Folklores, Lovers’ Folk lore from Punjab and Sind have been traditionally well known throughout India, e.g. Heer-Ranjha or Sohni-Mahiwal etc etc. Our films have a great contribution in keeping the country United and Together,despite calamities and aggressions. Some of the Folk tales of Love from Punjab and Sindh became well known due to films made on them.

There are 9 Tragic Love stories from Punjab and Sindh,in which both the lovers die without getting united. These 9 Love stories are-
Mirza-Sahiban
Heer – Ranjha
Sassi-Punnu
Momal-Rano
Umar-marvi
Sohni-Mahiwal
Lila-Chanesar
Noorie-Tamchi
Dhaj-Rorkumar (Unlike most pairs,in Mirza Sahiban,the Male name comes First !)
Dhola-Maaru (a story from Rajasthan).

Indian film producers have helped spread these Immortal Love stories by making movies on them,as under-
Heer-Ranjha… Films made in 1931,32,48 and 1970
Mirza-Sahiban… In 1933,35,47 and 1957
Sassi-Punnu… In 1932,33 and 1946
Sohni-Mahiwal…In 1933,46,58 and 1984
Umar-Marvi…in 1942
Noorie-Tamchi…In 1934
Dhola-Maaru….1956

Film Wamiq Azra-1946 was made by Hind Pictures, Bombay. It was owned by actor, Director Nazir Ahmed khan who was a very enterprising and capable, multi faceted artiste. He acted in 25 films, from 1933 to 1942, directed 8 films from 1940 to 1947,sang 7 songs in 5 films and even wrote lyrics in filmAabroo-1943. His first wife was Sitara Devi-dancer and actress, who eloped with his nephew-K.Asif. His second wife was Swarnalata-a Siyal Sikh actress. Nazir established his film Studio in Dadar-Hind Pictures. In the riots of 1947, his studio was burnt by a frenzied mob and he stood in a corner watching it burn completely, while he smoked cigarettes. Next week he migrated to Pakistan with wife Swarnalata in tow. He is regarded as the builder and developer of Pakistani Film industry, in the initial stages.

The film was directed by his Cinematographer Nazir Ajmeri. This was his first film as a Director and later he directed Rupa-46, Keemat-46, Majboor-48 and Abida-48, before he too migrated to Pakistan and joined his Mentor Nazir Ahmed khan. The film had music by A.R.Qureshi (29-4-1919 to 3-2-2000). He gave music to 40 films composing 356 songs and singing 14 songs in 7 films. By 1958 he left films and concentrated on his speciality- Tabla, holding concerts all over the world. He became very famous with his real name All Rakha Khan. His son Zakir Hussain is also an internationally famous Tabla Nawaz.

The songs of this film were written by Lyricist Tanvir Naqvi. Tanvir Naqvi ( real name- Syed Khursheed Ali ) was born on 16th February 1919, at Lahore. His father was a Jahagirdar and elder brother was ADC to a Nawab. Tanvir went to Persia, along with father, where he was educated in Urdu and Persian. From the age of 14 years, he started writing poetry and participated in various Mushairas. He published a book ” Suhane Sapne ‘ of his poetry. By chance, A R Kardar read it and called Tanvir to Bombay to write for his film ‘ Swami’-41 made by CIRCO.

In his next film, Nai Duniya-42, Suraiya sang his song as her First song. His films Anmol Ghadi-46 and Jugnu-47 became hits and all his songs were appreciated much. He had earned a good name. However, after the film Parda-49, he migrated to Pakistan. In 1954, K.Asif invited him to India to write songs for his film ‘Mughal E Azam’, but by that time, Naushad had built his own team and he declined to take Tanvir Naqvi. From 1954 to 1959, Tanvir did many films. He also joined S.Mohinder and wrote songs for his 7 films.

In 1959, Tanvir Naqvi shifted again to Pakistan, but this time for good. There also, he wrote for many films,like Koel, Jhoomar, Salma, Gulfam,Elaan etc etc. He also wrote for Punjabi films. He had married Idaan- elder sister of actress singer Nurjehan. However,since he had no children from her, he married again and had 2 children. He died in Lahore on 1-11-1972. In India, he wrote 224 songs for 48 films. Some of his songs are popular even today.

Today’s song is sung by A.R.Qureshi and Naseem Akhtar.

Blog Day : 3892 Post No. : 14927

Today’s song is from the film ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’ (1955).

When I was very young and had just started taking interest in reading books and seeing films, I always felt that HATIMTAI is a girl’s name. This was because “Tai” in Marathi, means Didi in Hindi. It was only after I read the book “Arabian Night stories”, that I was surprised that Hatimtai was a Male name !

According to Wiki, Hatim-Al-Tai or Hatim-Al-Taeei was a 6th century Arabian Christian poet. He was adventurous and very generous. His name is mentioned in Arabian Night stories too. It seems a beautiful princess Husn Bano asked 7 questions and declared that she will marry only to whosoever answers these questions. A neighbouring king fell into her love and Hatimtai helped him find all the 7 answers. Hatim of Arabia was a Christian and a contemporary of prophet Mohammed, but they never met. He was famous for his generosity, wisdom, courage and hospitality. Later his son was converted to Islam.

Hatimtai’s story has always attracted the film makers from the silent movie times. There were 4 silent films titled “Hatimtai”. Then in 1933,first Talkie film ‘Hatimtai’ was made in 4 parts,each a separate full movie. ‘Son of Hatimtai’ was made twice and ‘Hatimtai ki beti’was also made twice. Hatimtai films had plenty of magic,adventure,dance and drama with humour. Among ” C” grade films, Hatimtai films were very popular. ‘Hatimtai ki Beti’was made in 1940 and 1955,both the films were directed by Nanubhai Vakil. In the 1940 film Sarojini,Indurani,Anil kumar etc were in the cast. That film was produced very lavishly by Sagar Movietone. In those days it cost them Rs. 1 Lakh 25 thousand rupees. The outdoor shooting was done in Agra and Fatehpur Shikri.

Hatimtai-55 was a partly coloured film. This was a period when the coloured films were still a novelty and not many films were made in colour. In fact most films were still in Black and White only. Today, after almost 65 years, when we see the old Black and White films, we get excited and feel that how soothing these films were to the eyes. The beauty of the Heroines seems more impressive. When one sees films of Madhubala in B/W and in Colour, one gets a feeling that B/W was much better. Of course, Nostalgia has a greater role in such feelings, I agree.

The film was made by Vakil Productions. Naturally the producer and Director was Nanubhai Vakil-the owner. Songs were written by Shevan Rizvi, except for just one song by Kaifi Azmi. The music was given by Nanubhai’s favourite MD- A R Qureshi who had given music to 18 films of Nanubhai vakil. Music director A.R. Qureshi (full name: Allah Rakha Qureshi , born April 29, 1919 in Phagal, in the Jammu district in Jammu and Kashmir state) was also a well-known tabla player and gave many performances on All-India Radio. He had left home as a teenager to study tabla with Mian Qadir Bakshi and entered films in 1943, sometimes billed as Allah Rakha. Among the the fantasy films he worked on are Flying Man (1947), Jadui Angoothi (1948), Sakhi Hatim(1955), Noor Mahal (1954), Hatimtai Ki Beti (1955), and Alladin Leila(1957). He gave music to 18 films, directed by Nanubhai Vakil.

In all he gave music to 40 films from 1943 to 1964. He even sang 14 songs in 7 films.

Shortly after Sim Sim Marjina in 1958, he left films ( except one film Idd ka chaand-64) and turned to classical music, touring with the famous Sitar Maestro Ravi Shankar throughout the 1960s and 70s as well as other musicians. In 1968 he collaborated with American jazz musician Buddy Rich, creating the album Rich a la Rakha.

He started the Alla Rakha Institute of Music in Bombay in 1985. His three sons, Zakir Hussain, Fazal Qureshi, and Taufiq Qureshi, are all tabla players.

A.R. Qureshi died on February 3, 2000.

For this film he had Damodar Sharma as his assistant. Sharma was one of the well known Music Directors of the early era films. Among the old era MDs, Damodar Sharma was different, in the sense that his songs were always unlike those of his contemporaries. When you hear his songs, you will notice that difference. From 1934 to 1948, he gave music to just 41 films. All his films were C grade films made by Paramount, Liberty, Ramnik Productions, Mohan Pictures and others. After 1948, he stopped getting films, so he worked as assistant to MD A.R.Qureshi till 1964.

Film Hatimtai ki Beti-55 had a cast of Chitra, Mahipal, Daljit, Krishnakumari, Kamal, Kammo, Kumkum, Helan, Heera Sawant Tun Tun, Maruti, Sundar, kesari, Niranjan Sharma, W M Khan etc. There were 4 Guest artistes also,including Al Nasir and Heeralal. With 5 specialist Dancers and 2 Heroines also dancing, the film had eye pleasing dances and good music too.

Actress Krishnakumari’s name appears here. She acted more in Stunt and costume films than social films. Krishna Kumari (not to be confused with the 1930s actress of the same name nor the south Indian actress T. Krishna Kumari) was born Rajinder Kaur in Rawalpindi, Punjab state (now part of Pakistan) on October 3, 1934. Occasionally playing the heroine in B-grade films including Vanraj (1952), Gorilla (1953) Black Rider (1960) State Express(1961) and Khush Naseeb (1964) she is probably much better known as a temptress or villain in the likes of Baghdad Ka Jadu (1956), Zimbo(1958), Police Station (1959), Lady of the Lake (1960), Jadoo Mahal(1962) or dozens of similar action, horror and fantasy films.

Her debut came in the film Bela-1947. Then she got film Girls School (1949), which also featured newcomers Geeta Bali and Shashikala, after which she appeared in Naao, which actually ended up in theatres first, releasing in 1948. Krishna Kumari’s career lasted 20 years, and during that time she managed to chalk up an impressive amount of credits, even if most of the pictures she made were not considered important by critics. She acted in 118 films.

The story of this film was………

HATIM TAI KI BETI-1955 was a costume drama set in the Arabian style mode. Produced by Nanubhai Vakil through his Vakil productions,it was directed by Nanubhai himself.The MD was A R Qureshi (Alla Rakha Qureshi,the famous Tabla player and father of Zakir Hussain,tabla maestro). His asst. was Damodar Sharma- in the 30s and 40s,he himself was a well known composer. The lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi( 8 songs) and Kaifi Azmi (2 songs).

It is imagined ( it is declared just before the credits) that Hatimtai had 2 daughters. The elder is Jahanara,the queen of Shahbad and the younger is Roshanara,who is known for feeding the poor and the needy always. The Shaitan(Devil ) and his assistant Badi (बदी) can not tolerate Roshan’s goodness. They come and poison the food she distributes. All,including the queen,become sick. However due to her goodness Imaan and Neki come and all recover. Then the Devil’s team poisons Jahanara’s mind and she imprisons Roshanara.

Meanwhile the neighbouring king of Turin proposes marriage of his elder son Salim with Roshan, but Jahanara wants to marry him. At the same time Salim’s younger brother Aslam also wants to marry Roshan, so Salim withdraws and Aslam is married to Jahanara( as Roshan). On the wedding night truth is revealed. Aslam is imprisoned but rescued by his friends.

Now Salim comes and is imprisoned by Jahanara. Aslam comes with army and rescues Salim and imprisons Jahanara. Roshanara comes and begs for pardon to repentant Jahanara.

King and queen of Turin arrive for the marriage,but Shaitan and Badi become snakes and bite Salim and others. Roshan Ara prays to God and due to her good work, Imaan and Neki arrive and revive everyone.

Finally Aslam and Jahanara and Salim and Roshanara get married.

Fortunately this is a video of the song and dance. The song has a good tune and is very melodious too. Enjoy….

This is a song from a Raj-Nargis film Bewafa-52 and it is sung by Talat Mahmood.

It is not very common that Talat sang for Raj Kapoor. Raj was convinced that only the voice of Mukesh suited him, so in all the films that he produced or directed, he used to try using Mukesh for his songs. However,as a true Professional, if he were to work for some other producer or under a different Director, he followed the policy of strict Non-interference. So, in such films, we see other singers giving playback to Raj Kapoor, depending on the choice of the producer or director. Talat sang a total of ten songs for Raj Kapoor in 4 films, as following-

I am aware of a movie called “Hatimtai” (1955). It appears that the same movie was also called “Hatimtai Ki Beti” (1955). The movie was produced and directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The movie had Mahipal, Chitra, Daljeet, Krishn Kumari, Kumkum, Naaz, Maruti, Hiralal, Helen etc in it.

I think I am familiar with most movies starring Raj Kapoor and Nargis, but even I was stumped when I came across this movie called “Bewafaa” (1952). This movie is not all that well known, which means that this movie did not do all that well.That way, this movie suffered the same fate as “Aashinaa”, another Raj Kapoor-Nargis starrer.
