Today’s song is from the film Badi Maa-1945.

No wonder that the word Maa is one of the favorites of our film makers. There were 5 films called Maa and its varieties like Badi Maa, Chhoti Maa. Then there were Maa films with Baap, Beta, Beti, Behen,Biwi, Mamata, Aanchal, Pyaar, Aansoo, Saugandh, Shakti, and Qasam. Additionally, Durga and Santoshi Maa were also made. Almost 30 films about Maa at one place in the index book. I did not try other letters of the alphabet to see more films with the word maa – like Naani Maa etc !

BADI MAA-1945 was a film of Prafull Pictures of Master Vinayak (Father of actress Nanda).It was produced and directed by Master Vinayak with music by K.Datta or Datta korgaonkar or D.P.Korgaonkar.The story was by V.S.Khandekar,noted Marathi writer,who was ,later,the First Marathi recipient of Gyanpeeth Award for his novel “YAYAATI”.The lyrics were by Anjum Pilibhiti,Zia Sarhadi and Raja Badhe,who was a noted Marathi poet.

Master Vinayak was forced to produce this war effort movie to save his company,because the Govt. At that time desperately needed public support for their war efforts.Such pictures were given grants for production also.if they refused,the consequences were dire. The word Badi Maa,in this film meant Motherland-India.

Today’s song is one of Lata’s early songs in Hindi films. Being brought up in a Marathi atmosphere, initially, she had to struggle very hard to learn Hindi / Urdu word pronunciations, which, like a good learner, she picked up fast. Entering Film world was not so easy, but Master Vinayak played a vital role in establishing her in films or at least in bringing her to the notice of other stalwarts, because he himself died quite early in 1947 itself.

After Deenanath Mangeshkar’s death, Lata was adopted by Master Vinayak. In 1942, vinayak directed his last film for navyug Films “Pahili Mangalagaur”. he gave a small role and one song to her in that film. Then he, with the help of friend Vasant joglekar got her a song in Marathi film ” Kiti Hasaal’. However it was removed from the film before its release. In 1943, Vinayak launched his own Prafulla Pictures and madr 6 movies – 3 Marathi and 3 Hindi.

In the film Gajabhau-44 he gave Lata a hindi song. Then in the film Subhadra, Lata got 3 songs. In 1945, he directed ‘Badi Maa’. Lata and Asha got acting roles and Lata got 2 songs. In Jeevan yatra-46, she sang one song. And finally in 1947, Lata sang her first Hindi playback song in the film ” Aap ki Sewa mein”.

Vinayak died almost immediately after our Independence, but he had done the basic ground work to give a beginning to Lata’s career. Lata was later helped by Ghulam Haider, Khemchand Prakash and Anil Biswas. Then she never looked back.

The story of the film Badi Maa-45 was written by V.S.Khandekar. In those days there were Bangla, Gujarati, Hindi and Marathi writers with almost all film companies to assist in stories and dialogues. V. S. Khandekar was a very popular and famous writer in Marathi.

Vishnu Sakharam Khandekar (11 January 1898 – 2 September 1976) was a Marathi writer from Maharashtra. He was the first Marathi author to win the prestigious Jnanpith Award.

Khandekar was born on 11 January 1898 in Sangli, Maharashtra. His father was a munsif (a subordinate official) in Sangli principality where he spent his childhood and completed his early education. In his early life, he was interested in acting in movies and staged various dramas during school days.
After passing his matriculation exam in 1913, Khandekar joined Fergusson College, Pune. In 1920, he started working as a school teacher at a school in Shiroda.

Khandekar’s writing career began in 1919 when Shrimat Kalipuranam, his first work, was published, and continued to 1974 when his novel Yayati was published.

In 1920, Khandekar started working as a school teacher in a small town, Shiroda, in the present-day Sindhudurg district of the Konkan region in Maharashtra. He worked in that school until 1938. While working as a teacher, Khandekar produced in his spare time abundant Marathi literature in various forms. In his lifetime, he wrote sixteen novels, six plays, around 250 short stories, 50 allegorical stories, 100 essays, and over 200 critiques. He worked and founded Khandekari alankar in Marathi grammar.

In 1941, Khandekar was elected as the president of the annual Marathi Sahitya Sammelan (Marathi Literary Conference) in Solapur. In 1968, the Government of India honoured him with a Padma Bhushan award in recognition of his literary accomplishments. Two years later, he was also honoured with the Sahitya Akademi Fellowship of the Indian Sahitya Akademi. in 1974, he was awarded the Jnanpith Award, country’s highest literary recognition, for his novel Yayati. Shivaji University at Kolhapur, Maharashtra conferred on him an honorary degree of D.Litt. In 1998, the Government of India issued a commemorative postage stamp in his honour.

Khandekar’s novel Yayāti (ययाति) received three prestigious awards: A Maharashtra State Award (1960), a Sahitya Akademi Award (1960), and a Jnanpith Award (1974).

Films on his novels were made in Marathi (5), Hindi (3 – Chhaya-36, Jwala-38 and Amrut-41) and in Telugu and Tamil (1 – Dharm Patni-41). He wrote stories, lyrics and dialogues for Marathi and Hindi films too.

“Aakaashpari” (1958) was produced by S P Srivastava and M S Geete and directed by Mohan Sinha for Delite Pictures Prrivate Limited, Bombay. The movie had Kusum Pradhan, Mahipal, Ram singh, Maruti, Kamal, Krishnkumari, Sabita Chatterji, Kanchanmala, Nargis Nandini, Bhagwan sinha, Dubey, Gaurang, Moosa, Ramlal, Chhotu etc in it.

This kalpnic (fantasy) movie had eight songs in it. HFGK mentions that these eight songs were originally meant for an earlier movie called “Dil Bahaar” aka “Lachak” and these songs were recorded during july-september 1950. The records were released under fim name “Dil Bahaar”, but this movie remained unreleased and later these eight songs were utilised in “Aakaashpari” (1958).

Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Aakaashpari” (1958) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Meena Kapoor and Sulochana Kadam. Anjum Pilibhiti is the lyricist. Music is composed by Inayat Ali.

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

Blog Day : 3711 Post No. : 14638

Today’s song is from a film Manorama-1944. HFGK does not mention singers’ names, but the voices are that of Chitalkar and Hamida Banu with chorus. The film Lyricist was Anjum Pilibhiti and the MD was C Ramchandra.

Last week we had discussed a New pair of names fitting under ” The Same Name Confusion” series, which came first time, only on this Blog. The names were similar sounding Ramola and Romilla. Our Sadanand ji had also added some new information about Romilla, in his comments. This is how informations get updated. Thank you, Sadanand ji.

Today we have yet another New pair-again first time on this Blog- which are not similar sounding names, but have exactly the same spellings. The name is Naseem, who was a part of the film’s cast along with Leela Chitnis, Ishwarlal, N M Charlie, Kantilal, Mubarak, Alaknanda and others.

NASEEM is the name which caused confusion in the 40s, because two actresses with the same name were working in the films at the same time. Generally, the younger one was mentioned as (Junior), but in some films she is just mentioned as Naseem. These are the films which are coolly added to the Senior Naseem’s Filmography, because she was more famous. This is exactly what happens in such cases of SNC. One has to take extra efforts to credit the right films to the right artiste. Most of the times, this is a very tedious job and may take months to get the right answer which can be defended with corroborative evidence. All these old artistes are no more and not every artiste’s information is available. particularly those artists who created confusion and either left the films or the country or the world, are the toughest cases as no information is available on them in India and Pak sites do not give full information on pre-independence films or artists.

Interestingly, the problem of Same Name Confusion is non existent in Hollywood. Not because there are no such names, but because they are very alert and take preventive measures. No one can act in films or on TV, unless he is registered with the ‘ Screen Actors Guild ‘ (estd 1933). They have a strict rule that no two actors will have same names. If a New actor comes with a same name that is already existing on the rolls, he is required to change his name before registration, or add a prefix or a suffix. That is why this problem is not there in Hollywood, in spite of more than 130,000 active members.

Though in India, no such system operates, this problem has almost become extinct in recent times, because of a variety of names ( unlike the western world) available now. Now, let us see more about these two Naseems. First, the senior one.

Born on 2-9-1920,at Delhi -ROSHAN ARA aka Naseem Bano was the daughter of a famous classical singer Shamshad Begum. She too was very good looking . She was called ” Chhamiya” due to her adakari while singing. Naseem was so beautiful that even is school days her beauty was discussed by people. When sh was in school,once she came to Bombay and happened to see the shooting of ” Silver King-35″. She was so impressed with it that she decided to become an actress.

When Sohrab modi proposed to cast her as a Heroin in his “Hamlet”,her family flatly refused but gave in after Naseem sat on a Hunger Strike !. For her second film,’ Khan Bahadur’ she was advertised as a ‘ Beauty Queen’. (Later her daughter Saira bano also got this title). After some films like Divorce,Meetha Zahar and Vasanti,the most important film of her life and also for Minerva Movietone, PUKAR-39 was launched. In this film she enacted the role of Empress Noorjahan,opposite equally handsome actor Chandramohan as Jehangir. She looked cute and beautiful as Queen in the get up. She became an All India star overnight and got the Title ” Pari-Chehra ” from the critics. Her song ‘ Zindagi ka saaz” became so famous that thousands of records were sold in no time.

She married producer Director Mohammed Ehsaan, in 1942. They started their own company- Tajmahal Films and produced Ujala, Begum, Mulaqat and Ajeeb Ladki. The couple had two children- Sultan Ahmed and Saira Banu. After 1947,she stopped singing and did only acting.

Naseem acted in limited films,like Hamlet, Divorce, khan bahadur, Vasanti, Meetha Zahar, Pukar, Ujala, Chal chal re Naujawan, Chandni Raat, Main Haari, begum, Mulakat, Sheesh mahal, Anokhi Ada, Baghi, Shabistan, Sindbad the Sailor, Betaab, Ajeeb Ladki, and Nausherwan E Adil. She did only 20 films. She sang 42 songs in 14 films.

When her mother Shamshad Begum “Chhamiya” died in 1983,many newspapers,magazines and Internet sites published erroneous news that the famous singer Shamshad Begum had died.

In 1953, her husband deserted her and went to Pakistan with the negatives of her films. He made money and Naseem became famous and Popular in Pakistan, without going there. She took her children and went to England for few years, but came back to India to make her daughter an actress.

Naseem Bano died on 20-6-2002.

Naseem bano was never a singer, but she sincerely tried to improve her singing. Her voice was thin and there was a tremor in it,so it sounded sweet( just like Talat).

Naseem Jr. or Miss Naseem Jr. was younger sister of actress Shameem. She was born in Lahore on 8-2-1930. Her father had a shop and he was a General merchant. She was educated in Islamia Girls school, Bombay where she was staying with her actress sister Shameem. After Matriculation, she too wanted to become an actress. While in school she did many dramas. At the age of 13, she did an uncredited small role in film Salma-43.

Her first major film was Jwar Bhata-44- also the first film of Dilip kumar and Mrudula. Her second film was Manorama-44. She acted in few more films Sanyasi-45, Zeenat-45, Door Chalen-46, Amar Raj-46, Jeewan Sapna-46 and Mera Geet-46.

She had a hot temperament and could not get along with co stars and the Directors. Soon the offers diminished. She got married and returned to her hometown-Lahore along with her husband. She did only few films, but it was enough to cause confusion. Her films Jeewan Swapna-46 and Door chalen-46 are generally credited to Naseem Sr.’s filmography.

You will find one more name in the cast-Alaknanda. In Hindi films, there were many sister-pairs who worked as actresses, but in the history of Hindinfilms-both Silent as well as Talkie- there have been only 3 sets of 3 sisters who worked as actresses in the same periods. The first set was of Zubeida, Sultana and Shehzadi in the early 30s. Then in the 40s came the second set of Alaknanda, Tara and Sitara Devi. In the 50s, the last Trio of Padmini, Ragini and Lalitha worked in same period. After this, to my knowledge, no such Trio of actresses came on the screen. If you count step-sister also, then Mehtab was the step sister of Zubeida, Sultana and Shehzadi trio. This made the only Quartet of Sister Actresses in Hindi Film History ever ! Even their mother Fatima acted, directed and Produced films, to boot !! Only their father did not join films !!!

Alaknanda was born in or around 1910 in a Banares situated Mishra family. her clan had a tradition of singing in temples for the last 5 centuries. The family had close relations with Nepal and its Royal family. Her Grandfather was a court singer. Her grandmother and mother were from Nepal, so Alaknanda called herself as ‘ half Nepalese ‘.

When her father wanted to train her and her younger sister Tara, in Dancing and music, there was opposition from their society. Therefore the family moved to another corner of Banares and he started a Music school and trained children of Royal families from Bengal. In one of their visits to Calcutta, Sitara Devi was born in Calcutta. Alaknanda’s first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33. She worked in 38 films till late 40s. She had sung 15 songs in 7 films. She got Cancer and died sometime in or around 1947. Not much information is available about her or her sister Tara/Tara Devi/Tarabai. Vithal Pandya, in his book mentions that in her last days, Tara stayed in Bombay slums and worked as extra in films in her old age.( Famous dancer Gopi krishna was her son) Sitara Devi, on the contrary,lived a famous,rich and majestic life, with several marriages. That’s life, anyway.

The Hero of the film was Ishwarlal, who was a fixture in Ranjit for 13 years. ISHWARLAL was born on 9-10-1911 at Ghanghaniya,Kathewar,Gujrat, as Ishwarlal Hariprasad Doshi.

He belonged to a Jain family. His father was in Police department at Kathiawar Agency. His father died when Ishwarlal was just 3 year old and mother raised him.

After Matriculation, he completed Teaching Diploma at the age of 16, but did not a job as he was underage.He came to Bombay, where his brother had some business, in 1927 to act in films. Ishwarlal was very handsome.

He got a job in Ranjit Studios. He started with silent films at a salary of Rs. 35 pm.His first Talkie film was Bhutiya Mahal-1932.Then came Char Chakram-32.He started acting and singing in films.Initially he sang only duets.Meanwhile,with Jwalamukhi-36,he became Hero.He sang many songs in Ranjit films,but the records are not available.Those days,not all songs of the film were recorded for commercial purpose.

In Billi-38,he sang a duet with Sunita devi and also in Aaj ka Hindustan.In Ummeed-41,he had a duet with Nurjahan.In Pyaas-41,he sang with S.Pradhan.

He got to sing a solo song for the first time in 1942 in Fariyaad. In Jabaan, under C.Ramchandra,he sang 7 songs.

Some of his films were-
Diwali, Dheeraj, Chandni, Bhola shikar, Nadira, Sitamgar, Veer babruwahan, Barrister’s wife, College kanya, Desh dasi, Keemti aansoo, Dil ka daku, Jwalamukhi, Sajni, Dil farosh, Adhuri kahani, Thokar, Holi, Pyar, Bansari Lalkar, Chirag, Us paar etc.

He worked in Ranjit for 13 years. Then he worked with Prafull pictures, Sun art, Wadia, Hind pictures and Atre Pictures also.

In 1945,he was the hero of Noorjehan in Badi Maa,but he had no songs, in fact his last songs were in Us Paar-1944. His singing stopped completely when Rafi gave him playback in film Sharbati Aankhen-45.

Then he did character roles in Subhadra,Mahasati tulsi vrinda,Sanskar,Naulakha haar,Khuda ka banda etc.

He acted in 86 films. He also directed 11 films. He sang36 songs in 14 films. His last film released was was kahani kismet ki-73
He was married in 1931 to a loyal wife kamalabai. They had no issues. Due to excessive smoking he contracted lung diseases and died on 22-1-1969 in Bombay.

With today’s song, film Manorama-44 makes its Debut on this Blog.

Time to Yippeee another film. Today’s film is ‘Humjoli’ – not the one from 1970, but the one from way back in 1946. This film has 10 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. Nine songs have already been showcased here on our blog. The last song for this film was posted in November last year. In that post, Atul ji has commented that the 10th song appears to be elusive, and is yet to be uploaded online. Today, as I checked for this song, I am unable to track it anywhere as yet. I could be wrong, as I have been earlier, maybe just limited by the way I searched for it. So I decided to upload this from my collection.
