The song is picturised as a picnic song on Kishore Kumar and others. Towards the end of the song, we find them ending up on a beach/ sea shore.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the other revelers in this picnic song.

The song initially has some gibberish words (or may be words in some other languages). I request our readers with keener ears to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

Today’s song is from an unknown film Fashion-1943.

The film was made by Fazli brothers and was, naturally, directed by one of them- Hasnain Fazli. The music was composed by Shanti Kumar Desai and the Lyricist was Arzoo Lucknowi. The cast of the film was Sardar Akhtar, Chandramohan,Sabita Devi, Bhudo Advani, Nazir Kashmiri etc.

The producers Fazli brothers were the sons of Khan Bahadur S M Fazal Rabb of Beharaich- about 125 kms from Lucknow in U.P. The elder brother was Hasnain and the younger brother was Sibtain. Hasnain Fazli was born on 12-1-1912 in United Province (today’s U.P.). His family belonged to the noble Sayyads of Allahabad. Hasnain was a graduate of Allahabad University. Though his father was a Khan Bahadur, a Government Jahagirdar and lifetime Magistrate, Hasnain refused to do any service and did not complete his I.C.S. studies, as expected by the family.

He had a creative mind. He joined film line. He was very keen on making a film on Muslim Society. In those days it was considered outrageous to produce a film on Muslim society for fear of the ire of the fundamentalists. However Hasnain broke the barrier and the first Muslim Social film Qaidi-40 was produced and directed by him under the banner of Film Corporation of India, Calcutta. Very cleverly, the film was made at Calcutta, ( though the film depicted life in Lucknow ), and not at Bombay to avoid any disruption in the making of the film. The film was made so well that it was received very well by all strata of population, including the Muslims and became a hit film. After this Hasnain made more Muslim social films like Masoom-41, Chowranghee-42, Fashion-43 and Ismat-44. These films discussed Muslim family life and problems etc.

His first directorial film was at his 23rd year- Triya Charitra-35. Then came Sajiv Murti-35, in which the Handsome Vijay Kumar from Himachal Pradesh was the Hero. Fazli brothers also made Dil-46, Mehendi-47, Duniya-49 and Khoobsurat-52. Hasnain was so talented that he himself wrote the film stories, screenplays and dialogues usually.

After the Partition, Fazli brothers migrated to Pakistan. Sibtain remained in Pakistan and Hasnain returned to India to make 2 more films. Later Hasnain too relocated to Lahore and died there on 16-7-1957. His brother Sibtain ( 9-7-1914 to 25-7-1985) who had directed 3 films in India, made 4 films in Pakistan, including the most popular Urdu film of madam Nurjehan-Dupatta-52.

The life story of Sardar Akhtar- Heroine of this film- is very interesting. Sardar Akhtar was a Punjabi Muslim born in Lahore in 1915. Her mother was a famous singer on the infamous Hira Mandi Road of Lahore. Akhtar learned singing from her mother and also other ustads. Her younger sister Bahar Akhtar was beautiful and a good singer. These sisters were famous as Daaro and Baharo in Lahore. Bahar was hired by United Players Corpn. of Lahore , as a Heroine in their film ” Qaatil Kataar “. Producer A R Kardar was also its Hero. They fell in love. Bahar was under strict surveilance by her mother, but with the help of a friend, Kardar abducted her and they were married. When this news reached her mother, Akhtar and her mother made a Police complaint against Kardar. Kardar and his unit members were arrested and kept in a lock up for few days for abducting a Minor girl. They were released when Bahar herself gave a statement in their favour. Kardar destroyed the negatives of his film to prevent Bahar from further acting in films.

After this episode Akhtar started working in dramas. She went to Calcutta and did a small role in the film Dhoop Chaaon-35. From there she came to Bombay and joined Saroj Movietone. She did films like Eid ka Chaand, Roop Basant and Naqsh e Sulemani and earned a good name. She acted in films of Minerva and Wadia-mostly stunt action films. Mehboob Khan gave her a big role in the film Aurat-40 and her image changed. She also did Mehboob’s film Roti, during which they got married on 25-4-1942. They did not have any issues but they adopted Saajid Khan, child star of film Son of India-62. After Mehboob’s death in 1964 May, Akhtar lived alone, occasionally visiting Sajid Khan, who had settled in USA.

Sardar Akhtar did 44 films. Her last film was Raahat-45. However, she did small roles in films Hulchal-71 and Bandhe Haath-74.

Sardar Akhtar sang 92 songs in 27 films. Considering that she was not a regular or playback singer, her 92 songs were highly creditable. Not even 50% of her songs came on gramophone records. During one of her US visits, Sardar Akhtar died there on 2-10-1984. She was a devotee of sufi saint Ashraf Khan, her co-star of many films including Roti-42.

The Hero of the film Fashion-43 was Chandra Mohan. It was a proof of the secular nature of our film industry that a Kashmiri Brahmin actor was selected to act in a predominantly Muslim film. Chandramohan was one of the most Handsome actors Hindi films ever had. He was like Master Nissar. Both of them lived lives of Kings, but died like beggars !

Chandramohan Watal was born on 24-7-1906,to Kashmiri Bramhin parents,in Narsinghpore in the Central provinces,i.e. today’s M.P. area. By the time he was around 15,his parents died and he was looked after by his Guardians. When he could no longer tolerate the guardian’s torture,he ran away to Delhi. A friend helped him to get a job as a Cinema manager. After few sundry jobs,he settled in Mangal Distributors. They sent him to poona to finalise a deal for ‘Sairandhri” being produced by Shantaram. Shantaram,impressed with Chandramohan offered him film roles,but he refused. After some time,when Shantaram’s film Amrit manthan was on the floor,Baburao Pendharkar left the company on salary increment issue and Shantaram sent an offer to Chandramohan again. This time he accepted it and did the unforgettable role of Villain Rajguru in Amrit Manthan-34. After doing Amar jyoti and Vahan,Chandramohan had a tiff with Shantaram and he left Prabhat,joining Huns pictures for Jwala. With jwala’s debacle,he came to Bombay and joined Minerva for Pukar which proved to be a Hit film. Then came Geeta(HIndi/marathi),Roti and a string of Historical movies.

In all Chandramohan did 32 films. His last released film was Chocolate-50. He earned lakhs and spent millions on Races and drinks. he never came drunk on the sets. In his last days,he suffered from hallucinations and saw Durga mata blessing him. he used to say,” Laxmi left me but Durga came to me.”

His role of Shaheed-48,in his last phase was very impressive. His last days were spent in loneliness and poverty.When he died,his consort Sheila had no money,so Cine Artistes assn. did his last rites. He died on 2-4-1949.

The Music Director of this film was Shanti Kumar Desai, a very talented but unlucky composer who rarely got support from any famous banner. His music was enchanting and tunes were superb, but Lady Luck did not favour him.

He was born in Amreli, Saurashtra, Gujarat state on 3-3-1908. His family was in service as Royal Musicians, so he was exposed to music from childhood.He was an expert Harmonium player. To start his career, he came to Bombay and worked in H.M.V. as a Broadcaster. Here he came into contact with many composers and learnt how they operated and made tunes etc. He was already giving music to Dramas, but wanted to join Film line as M.D. He got his first film Navbharat ( Jawanmard0-1934. In those days Gujarati producers and directors used to prefer Gujarati MDs. Thus out of his 36 films, 18 were done with Gujarati Directors like Sohrab modi, Nanubhai Vakil, V.M.Vyas(4 films), Kanjibhai Rathod, Dhirubhai Desai etc. He also gave music to Gujarati films.

He gave music along with Madholal Master, Rafiq Ghaznavi, Pannalal Ghosh, Shyambabu Pathak etc. Famous singers like Rafi, Manna Dey, Zohrabai, Amirbai etc sang in his films during their early careers. Even kishore kumar’s early film Sati Vijay-48 had music by Shanti Kumar Desai. He gave music to films of early era actors like Prem Adib, Mehtab, Sitara Devi, Leela Chitnis, Jal Merchant, Ashraf Khan, Rajkumari, Mazhar khan, Shanta Hublikar, Jairaj, E Billimoria, Kumar, Sardar Akhtar, Chandramohan, Shobhana Samarth, Durga Khote, Shahu Modak and Sulochana.

From 1934 to 1948, he gave music to 35 films and in 1964 his one film was released. He composed about 300 songs. He never got films from top banners like Bombay Talkies, Prabhat, Sagar or Minerva, otherwise his career would have been different.

He died on 6-1-1986. Some of his better known films were Bholi Bhikaran-36, Punarjanma-38, Anjaam-40, Suhaagan-42, Naukar-43, Ek din ka sultan-45 and Lav Kush-51.

Film Fashion-43 was a very neatly made film. The film and its music become quite popular. The film got the ” Best film of the year” award from Film India. Hasnain was also declared “The Best Director of the year” by Film India. The story of the film was woven around the usual conflict between the Fashionable woman v/s traditional housewife. After the success of film Gunsundari from Ranjit, this type of story was made into films in many guises and various Titles. Film Gunsundari itself was remade in 1948 by Ratibhai Punatar- Nephew of Ranjit’s Sardar Chandulal Shah. Nirupa Roy did the main role in 1948 version, while the original 1934 film had Gauhar Mamajiwala as the Heroine.

Here is the song by Sardar Akhtar. When you hear the song, you will never feel that a non professional non playback singer is singing. The tune reminds us the famous song ” 15 August ka din hai hame pyara, azaad hua aaj ke din desh hamara” .

This song is sung by Kanan Devi. Suresh Chaudhary is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors, but the distribution of songs among them is not known.

“Pardesi Mehmaan”(1948) was directed by Aspi for Ranjit Movietone, Bombay. The move had Kamal Kapoor, Husn Banu, Rajrani, Ghulam Mohammed, Sheikh Hasan, Abdul Rehman, Afghan Sandow, Azim, Bipin Gupta, Kaizer etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Pardesi Mehmaan”(1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Husn Bano. Pt Indra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. Seeing that Husn Bano’s name is there in the cast, it can be safely assumed that the song is picturised on herself. From the lyrics, this song is obviously the dukhda of a dukhiyaari who is expected to lead her life while suffering in silence. 🙂

Today’s song is from the film Baadal-1942. The film was made by Eastern Pictures, Bombay. It was directed by Zahoor Raja. It had music by Mushtaq Hussain.

Zahoor Raja made his debut as a Director with Baadal-42. besides directing the film, Zahoor did the main Hero’s role and also sang 6 of the 11 songs that the film had.

Though the film was not successful at the Box office, Zahoor’s direction attracted the attention of critics. Seven of the 11 songs were written by Lyricist Tanveer Naqvi, and remaining 4 were penned by Shamim Bhairavi.

Tanveer Naqvi was born on 6-2-1919 in Lahore. His real name was Syed Khurshid Ali. After his education, he came to Bombay and met Abdul Rasheed Kardar- who at that time was making the film Swami-1941. Tanveer was given an opportunity and he wrote just one song which was composed by Rafiq Ghaznavi. However, when Kardar directed “Nai Duniya”-42, for CIRCO, Tanveer wrote 9 out of 11 songs for this film. Naushad was the composer. His songs included the famous Debut song of Baby Suraiya, ” Boot karoon main polish, babu….”

Tanveer’s best period was 1946-47, when he wrote for block busters like Anmol Ghadi, Jugnu and Nadaan-48. He was on top amongst Lyricists, but he chose to migrate to Pakistan after one more film, ” Parda”-49. For next 4-5 years he struggled in the Pak film inductry and then came back to India in 1954 and started writing songs till “Zameen ke taare”-60. Then he went back to Pakistan for good. There he wrote songs in Urdu and Punjabi films till 1971. he died at Lahore on 1-11-1972.

In India, he wrote 224 songs in 48 films.

The Music Director for Baadal was Mushtaq Hussain. This name may not be known to today’s music lovers. Mushtaq was famous as a Classical singer and was called a Ustaad. He started giving music to films in 1933. His first film was Aurat ka pyar-33. he gave music to few films only like Sauteli Maa-35, Balaa ki raat-36, Jaljalaa-36, Bhedi Trishul-38, Baghbaan-38, Pati patni-37, Kanyadaan-40, Baadal-42, Chhed chhad-43, Do ro die-44, Daasi ya maa-46 and his last film was Bombay 49. After this perhaps he realised that the public taste was changing and he left films. During the period of 1938, Naushad worked as his assistant in his struggle days and learnt few things.

The cast of film Baadal-42 was Zahoor Raja, Radha Rani, Urmila, A.R.Pehelwan, S.nazir, Radha kishen ( who left Prabhat after Padosi) etc.etc.

ZAHOOR RAJA (Born 7 July 1918 Abbottabad – Died 1992 England) Pre Partition Hindi/Urdu Film Actor, Producer, Director, Editor, Writer, Singer, Lyricist & Music Composer. He graduated from editing and story writing to become a producer-director in 1943.

Zahoor Raja was born in a wealthy family in Abbottabad, Pakistan. After schooling , he studied BA from Rawalpindi but could not complete his graduation as he was more interested in sports than in studies. His father, a Police Inspector, was keen in admitting him in Dehradun for a career in the army. But he ran away from home and landed in Bombay with a letter of introduction to Film maker A R Kardar. Since he was very handsome and well built man, getting into the Bombay film industry was not difficult. At that time, Kardar was directing ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1939) for Ranjit Movietone and . Kardar took Zahoor Raja in the film. Within a year after the release of the film, V Shantaram invited him to join Prabhat Films and was taken on a contract of 3 years. His association with V Shantaram was not beneficial and he did not get much work. Kardar once again came to his rescue and got him employed in National Studios and got him a role in ‘Pooja’ (1940). Thereafter, he got a role in Minerva Moveitone’s ‘Sikandar’ (1941). During the making of the film ‘Sikandar’ (1941), he fell in love with his co-star Meena (Meena Shourie) and married her. The marriage did not last long and Meena later married another handsome actor, Al Nasir in the mid 1940s.

Zahoor Raja later worked as a Hero in ‘Sewa’ (1941). During this time, while looking for a change from his acting career, he got a chance to direct the film ‘Badal’ (1942) produced under Eastern Pictures where he also acted in the lead role. Though the film failed at the box office, his direction was appreciated by the critics. In 1943, he floated his own film production company, Raja Movietone and made its maiden film ‘Mazaq’ (1943) which he also directed, acted in a negative role and composed its music. His banner produced ‘O Panchhi’ (1944), ‘Ghazal’ (1945) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946). In most of the films in which he acted, Zahoor Raja was paired with Radha Rani. He also sang the song ‘Bhulaane waale hamen bhi na yaad aaya karo’ along with Naseem Akhthar in the Movie ‘Ghazal’ (1945) composed by Gyan Dutt. His last Movie in India before moving to Pakistan was ‘Anmol Ghadi’ (1946)

After partition, Zahoor Raja returned to Pakistan in 1950 and he was active in Pakistani film industry until 1966. After 1966, he migrated to England, married an English lady and later died in 1992 in England.

Hindi film industry is full of ‘Same Name Confusions’ cases, especially for the decades of the 30s and the 40s. The Heroine of this film-Radharani was also one such case. There were two actresses, with same name and same active period. One was from Bombay and the other was from Calcutta. In film Baadal, Bombaywali Radharani had acted.

She was the daughter of a Military Officer. Born at Quetta, Baluchistan, in or around 1920-21, she had a British father and Indian mother. She had total Indian looks. Her initial education and schooling was done in Bombay. She became an expert in Horse Riding, swimming, cycling, driving and skating. She was very beautiful and attractive. At the age 15, she looked quite grown up with distinct features. While in school final itself, she got offers from films. Her first film was Romantic India-36. Being an expert singer, she started singing in films. Next she acted in Badhe Chalo-37.

She was called to Calcutta to act in film ‘ Swaraj ke Sipahi ‘-37. From Calcutta, she went to Madras to do a role in a Telugu film ‘ Bhakta Jaidev ‘-38. Returning to Bombay, Radha Rani acted in Sunehra Baal-38 and then joined Wadia movietone. Here she did 7 stunt/action films.

After this she became a freelancer and acted in 18 more films of different banners. She also acted in Punjabi film ‘ Kurmai’-41. Her achievements in films were amazing. Stepping directly from school classroom onto the Silver screen, in her first 5 years of career itself, she had bagged 15 feature films. This was mainly due to to her striking screen beauty, linguistic dexterity and histrionic versatility. She was a consummate actress, singer and dancer. She was very fond of reading English literature and would spend time reading books during shooting breaks.

She made a good pair with actor Zahoor Raja in 8 films. She acted in 3 films of his production company and in film Badal-42, he directed her. her last film was Rasilee-46. After this film she got married and went to England.

Filmography- Romantic India-36, Badhe Chalo-37, Swaraj ke sipahi-37, Bhakta Jaydev-38(Telugu), Sunehra Baal-38, kahan hai manzil teri-39, Hind ka lal-40, Diamond queen-40, Jai swadesh-40, Bambaiwali-41, Manthan-41, Safed sawar-41, Seedha Rasta-41, Darpan-41, Kurmai-41(Punjabi), Swami-41, Badal-42, Motorwali-42, Sewa-42, Suhagan-42, Jungle Princess-42, Mazaq-43, Mr.Jhatpat-43, Paraya Dhan-43, Sawal-43, Bhai-43, O Panchhi-44, Ghazal-45, Laaj-46 and Rasilee-46.

An interesting thing about the film title Baadal is that there were films made with this Title 5 times. The first time was in 1942 ( today’s film), then it was made in 1951, 1966, 1985, and in the year 2000. I have not seen this film Baadal-42, but from whatever I read in Film India about this film, it was a social film with a novel theme. As the film’s review was not available,I can not guess what the novelty was in the film story. However, in spite of very flattering, encouraging and excellent comments in the magazine, the film was not successful at all. After this debacle, Zahoor Raja floated his own company Raja Cinetone and made a few films, before migrating to Pakistan.

Film Baadal-42 makes its debut on this Blog with this song.

This obscure movie had Seven obscure songs in it. Five of them were sung by Kaushalya which suggests that she played the title role.

Here is the first song from “Nayi Bhaabhi”(1950) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kaushalya. B M Sharma, who was one of the three lyricists (Charan Das and Mayil Lucknowi being the others) is the lyricist. Music is composed by Harbaksh Singh (who was one of the two music directors of the movie, Chishti being the other).

Only the audio of the song is available, but it is clear that the song was picturised on Kaushalya herself.

With this song, the movie “Nayi Bhaabhi”(1950) as well as the lyricist and the music director make their respective debuts in the blog.

Today’s song is from the film Dhandora-41. It was a Ranjit film, directed by comedian N M Charlie. The music was by Ranjit’s resident composer Gyan Dutt. The song, penned by D N Madhok, is sung by Charlie himself.

What is the meaning of the word Dhandora ? As per the online dictionary, the simplified meaning is Elaan in Urdu, Proclamation in English. In Hindi it is Doundi and in Marathi it is Dawandi (दवंडी).

To understand this concept, we have to go back in time, when the means of communication were not many. The Public orders,Fatwas, New laws or any new announcement from the King for the public was through a Public Crier ( as he was called), with a big drum hanging from his neck onto his tummy. He would stand on a Public platform, like a Chavdi or in the middle of of a Market or Residential street. He would then start playing his drum loudly. When enough crowd had gathered, he would shout in a loud voice about the Proclamation from the authority. This entire process was called Dhandora or Dhandhora or Dhindhora ( the phrase “Dhindhora peetna” means to proclaim loudly ).

After the advent of modern and better communication means, this system was abandoned. However, in smaller villages and rural areas, its variation continued as a means of advertisements. I remember, during the visits to my Nanihal- which was a small town, in the summer holidays, in the early 40’s, we children used to run after the oxen cart in which the ‘Public crier’ or the person doing the advertisement and distributing hand bills sat. He would start banging his drum and shout the ad matter…mostly about a film.

The Hero of film Dhandora-41, who was also its Director, was Film industry’s First Superstar Comedian. Coming from a very humble family, he rose to be the king of Comedy in Hindi films, for a period of over a decade.

By the 1940s the system of Playback was firmly established. This actually came as a great relief to most composers. Till then they had to tolerate terrible non-singers. Now, except for few singing actors, all others could have playback from expert and professional singers. Despite this, in few cases, some producers insisted that their comedians sang their own songs. That is how, you can see songs by comedian Sunder, comedian Yaqub or comedian Charlie. Thank God other comedians like Master Bhagwan, V.H.Desai or Bhudo Advani did not / could not sing !

1945 was the period when Noor Mohammed Charlie was on peak of his popularity. He not only sang his songs, but he also became Hero in few pictures and stories were amended to give him more scope in the films. In the 1950s and the 1960s, this honour went to comedian Johnny Walker. Thank God, he did not sing songs ( though he spoke in his chirpy voice in some songs). Mohammed Rafi compensated enough for him by having a special style of singing and a special voice for Johnny Walker songs.

These days everyone likes the comedy of Amitabh Bachhan. His many films became Hits due to his comedy work. Today most of the Heroes do the comedy part in the film themselves. But till 1970, there used to be a separate slot for a comedian.

Today’s generation knows comedians like Paresh Raval, Anupam Kher etc. For them older comedians are Johnny Lever, Satish Shah or Rajpal Yadav. before that, they can think of Johnny Walker, Mehmood, Keshto Mukherjee, Asit Sen, Dhumal, Jagdeep, Asrani or Deven Verma. But the art of Comedy had started much earlier, in the 1930s and 1940s. Comedians like Ghori, Dikshit, Fatty Prasad, V H Desai, Bhudo Advani were famous. Amongst all the comedians of that era,there was ONE superstar of Comedy- NOOR MOHAMMED CHARLIE.

Noor Mohd. was born on 7-1-1911 at Ranavava, near Porbandar, Gujarat, in a Memon family (Later, comedian Mukri was also a Memon from Konkan area). Not intersted in studies, he was very fond of seeing films, even by stealing money from house, at times-if need be. He was sent to Bombay and worked as an Umbrella Repairer in a shop. His desire to become an actor was so strong that one day he straightaway went to Imperial Film Company’s owner and asked for a job. In the tradition of those days, he was asked if he could sing… His reply was,” I can sing, act, ride, run, fight, cry, laugh, quarrel, dance, play or swim”. He was hired instantly at a salary of Rs. 40 pm.

From 1925 to 1931 he did 9 silent films. In one of these films he did the acting of Charlie Chaplin. It became so popular that he made this get up his Trademark and developed Toothbrush Moustache ,like Charlie Chaplin. he also added ‘Charlie’ to his name. He did his first talkie film ” Zarina” in 1932 and then there was no looking back.

Initially with Sagar Movietone, he shifted to Ranjit and did 17 films with Ranjit. He became so famous and Popular that films were sold on his name. He was the First superstar amongst the comedians. He started to get special songs shot on him in almost every film-much before Johnny Walker in the 1950s. He sang his own songs. he left Ranjit and was the first actor to became a ‘Free-lance’ breaking the Studio system.

Some of his films and songs were famous over all India. In the film Sanjog, he sang ” Palat,tera dhyan kidhar hai “. This line became so famous that young boys in colleges used this line for calling girls,in those days. In the film Dhindhora, he sang ” ek do teen char panch chhe saat aath nau dus gyara bara,teri nazar ne mujhe mara”. ( Raj Kapoor used ‘Ek do teen aaja mausam hai rangeen’ and later Madhuri Dixit’s “Ek do teen” was very famous.) In the film Taqdeer he sang- “Thank you mention not” and ” I am very very Sorry”. This too became popular.

There was a time when Charlie drew more salary than even Prithwiraj kapoor ! He did about 62 films in all. he was the Hero opposite Swarnalata in Chaand Taara-45, hero opposite Leela Chitnis in Ghazal-45 and hero opposite Chandraprabha (Saraswati devi’s sister) in Dulha-46.

He directed only one film,while in Ranjit-Dhandora-41. Charlie sang 36 songs in 15 films.

After partition he opted for Pakistan. he did 6 Urdu, 2 Sindhi and 1 Punjabi films there but was not popular. He came back to India in 1960, but by then here too the position had changed. He did 3 films here. His last film in India was Ranjit’s last film ” Akeli mat Jaiyo”-63 and then that was the end of his film career and that of Ranjit studios too. Due to Visa problem, he had to leave India. He went to USA to live with his son, who had a dairy farm business. He had 6 sons and 6 daughters. Only 1 son-Latif Charlie became an actor In Pakistan. (He died on 19-7-2011). Charlie came back to Pakistan when his wife expired, but later he himself died in Karachi on 30-6-1983.

If he had not gone to Pakistan, who knows he would have prospered here. Mehmood and Johnny Walker consider him as GURU and have copied his actions in films many times. Raj Kapoor and Guru Dutt were also his fans. His film Manorama-44 was remade as Manchala in 1953 with Agha in his role. Thokar-39 was remade as Mai Baap and Taqdeer-43 was remade as Duniya ka Mela, with Mehmood in Charlie’s role.

When he died in Pakistan, no film personality from Pakistan Film industry attended his funeral. He died unsung !

The cast of film Dhandora-41 was Charlie, Husn Bano, Shameem, Dikshit, Ghori, E.Bilimorea, Bhagwan Das, Kesari etc etc.

With a plethora of Comedians in the film, one could easily make out the film’s genre. For the Heroine, Husn Bano, this was something new, because till then, she had been working only in Stunt/action films of Wadia Movietone like, Kala Gulab, Hind Kesari, Desh Deepak, Noor E Yaman etc etc. Husn Bano was the love child of actress Shareefa. Husn Banu was born in Singapore on 8-2-1919. She was very beautiful. She started her career in Calcutta ( just like her mother), by working in New Theatre’s film “Daaku Mansoor-34”. After this film, Shareefa brought her to Bombay and she started getting roles in Wadia films.

When she was selected for Dhandora as a Heroine, this was a new experience for her as she had never worked in a social or a comedy movie. All her experience was for stunt films only.

Husn Bano acted in 53 films and sanf 44 songs in 16 films. She had married Wadia’s director Aspy Irani. Husn Bano worked in films till her last film Akhari Sajda-1977 and then she retired. She had a big house “Shareefa Manzil” in Dadar, Bombay. On 23-11-1986, her husband Aspy Irani left home for work and he simply disappeared. He was never found and was declared as a “Missing Person” by the Police.

The story of film Dhandora-41 was by Charlie himself. He was the Hero and also the Director. Dialogues and most lyrics were by D N Madhok. The story of the film was…..

Two young persons, Pyare (Charlie) and Mansukh(Dikshit) are working as Extras in films. They are actually nobodies, but crave for publicity in some way or the other. Pyare and Mansukh give it a long thought and come up with a crazy idea. It is planned that Mansukh should ‘murder’ Pyare. Then Mansukh will be caught and their names will be flashed on front pages of Newspapers and on Radio news. Thus they will become famous. The murder, of course , has to be only a fake one. Then Pyare would go out of Bombay and appear directly in court, when Mansukh would be convicted.

Everything takes place as planned. Mansukh is arrested. Pyare leaves secretly for Calcutta. In the train Pyare meets Banwari (Bhagwan Das)-a Theatre Manager and his beautiful daughter Kumud (Husn Bano). They continue meeting in Calcutta also and as expected, fall in love. In all this jhamela, Pyare forgets about Mansukh.

One day Pyare comes across a stupid fellow-Uttam ( Charlie’s double role), who looks exactly like him (naturally!). Uttam is the son of Calcutta’s rich person Sir Niranjan (E.Billimoria). For a better period of the film,after Interval, there are many scenes depicting the inevitable and sometimes intentional confusions due to the look-alikes.

In Bombay, Mansukh is dragged to the court and his case starts. There is no Pyare anywhere,as planned. Pyare loses all hope. He is convicted and sentences to death by hanging. Fortunately, when Mansukh is dragged to the Hangman’s rope, Pyare appears and clarifies that he is alive and there was no murder at all. Mansukh is released Baa-ijjat.
The Happy End !

For a long time, the songs of this film were not available anywhere. Luckily Mr. Shalin Bhatt uploaded 4 songs on You Tube, this month only-on 9th March 2018, to be precise. He is one of the few collectors, who upload full and complete songs. May his tribe grow ! There were 9 songs in the film, written by Madhok and Buta Ram Sharma. The music was by Gyan Dutt.

GYAN DUTT (Born 1915/1920 – Died on 3 December 1974) was an early Indian Film Composer and Music Director. He was Music Director for films such as Thokar (1939), Achhut (1940), Bhakta Surdas (1942), Sunehre Din (1949) and Ghayal (1951). Many of his songs were sung by K. L. Saigal. In 1948 he composed seven songs for a young Geeta Roy in the films Chanda Ki Chandani and Hua Savera, although their most notable collaboration was Dilruba (1950) in which Geeta Roy had 10 songs, seven of which were solos for Geeta Roy.

There were a few composers who were neither here nor there. Gyan Dutt was one of them. True, in his time there was no Parallel cinema, but Critics were very much there. Though he operated from 1937 to 1965-almost 30 years, he never became famous as some of his contemporaries like, Anil Biswas, C.Ramchandra, Naushad etc. He was a Bengali born in Bangalore. There are conflicting reports not only about his Birth year (1915 or 1920),but also about Birth place. Some sources say he was born in East Bengal.

As was the practice those days, Gyan Dutt ( real name Jnanan Dutt) was employed by Ranjit studios ( “we have more stars in our studio that there are in the sky”), along with other composers. He composed music for 25 films in Ranjit from 1937 to 1940. Khemchand Prakash, who replaced him in Ranjit did 20 films from 1940 to 1945 and then it was Bulo C Rani who did about 25 films after 1945 onwards. For most films of Gyan Dutt in Ranjit the film directors were Gujaratis like, Jayant Desai, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chandulal Shah, Manibhai Vyas etc. He was called Pandit Gyan Dutt.

In those days, hero and Heroines used to sing their own songs. Thus his songs were sung by Waheedan bai, Khatoon, Kalyani,Sunita Devi, Ila Devi, Madhuri, Sitara, Indubala, Vasanti, Savita Devi, Miss Rose, Meera, Gauhar, Snehprabha Pradhan etc.Among males it was Ishwarlal, Kantilal, Ghori, Bilimoria, Charlie etc.

Gyan Dutt gave music to 58 films, but songs from only Saigal’s Bhakta Surdas-42 and Raj kapoor’s Sunehre Din 49 are well known. Actually songs of Aapki Marzi-39 and Sant Tulsidas-39 were also popular in those days. Khursheed sang many songs for him. He also sang a few songs himself. His last film was janam janam ke Saathi-1965.

Gyan Datt remained employed with Ranjit Movietone and gave music is many films including Toofani Toli(1937), Bazigar (1938), Gorakh Maya (1938), Nadi kinare (39), Musafir (1940). In Toofani Toli he made Wahidan bai (Mother of Nimmi) sing “Kyon Naianan mein neer bahaye”. Many singers like Kantilal, Kalyani, Rajkumari, Khursheed and Manna Dey sang his songs. His last film was Janam janam ke saathi (1965) in which duet was sung by Mukesh & Suman Kalyanpur, Hemant Kumar &Indrani Roy.The most notable among his compositions being Sunehre Din (1949) and the song – Maine Dekhi Jag Ki Reet Meet Sab Jhoote Pad Gaye sung by Mukesh and Shamshad Begum.

His death came on 3-12-1974 in Bombay. Unfortunately except for a small time less known composer Sapan Chakravarty,no one from the film industry attended his funeral and a good composer died unsung, unknown and all alone.

Here is a song which is a precursor to many subsequent songs of Hindi films. It starts counting straight up to Twelve… a typical comedy song. Enjoy…..

“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) was produced by Habib Nadiadwala and directed by Tinnu Anand. The movie was an adaptation of Frank Capra’s “Meet John Doe”(1941). Amitabh Bachcahn played the lead role in the movie.

While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), like its Hollywood original, showed the hero as a common man, helpless against system. Indian audience, brought up on staple diet of escapist movies were not mature enough to appreciate movies that were off the beaten track. People expected Amitabh Bachchan to play his usual larger than life superman like character, but the movie depicted him as an ordinary man, as powerless and helpless as most ordinary men, and movie goers were not prepared for that. While “Meet John Doe”(1941) was a superhit movie, its Hindi adaptation failed miserably at the box office. So it showed, if any proof was needed that Indian audience of 1989 had not reached the maturity of Hollywood audience of 1941 !

Personally I quite liked the movie, but I was in a minority. Most other people had expected to see Amitabh Bachchan as an angry young man of “Trishul” or “Andha Kaanoon” and they felt let down with the non escapist fare that this movie served.

“Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989) had just one song in it.

Here is that sole song from “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989). This song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and chorus, in addition to some unidentified voices. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and it is picturised on himself. Kaifi Azmi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Amar Utpal.

Since it is the only song from the movie, this song serves dual purpose simultaneously. This song is the debutant song as well as a YIPPEE song. So one can say, rather pompously that “Main Aazaad Hoon”(1989), makes its debut in the blog with this song and get YIPPEED as well. 🙂


Song-Itne baazoo itne sar (Main Aazaad Hoon)(1989) Singer-Amitabh Bachchan, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Amar Utpal
