PAAPI (1943) was produced by Satish Batra under the banner of Batra Productions, Lahore. The film was directed by Majnu. The star cast included Madhuri, Zahoor Raja, Majnu, Salma, Satish Batra, Moti, etc. I do not have much idea about the story line of the film. In a snippet appearing in one of the ‘Filmindia’ issues of 1943, there was an indication that it was a story built around the life of a sinner who had embarked upon his vicious design and poisoning the society. Probably, the film must have ended with the sinner getting reformed.

AAG KA DARIYA (1953) was produced and directed by Roop K Shorey. The star cast included Karan Diwan and Meena Shorey in the lead roles with Majnu, Satish Batra, Prithviraj Kapoor, Shammi, Uma Dutt, Johny Walker, Kumud Tripathi etc in supporting roles. As per Wikipedia, the film belonged to the genre of melodramatic love story. The title of the film reminded me of a she’r of Jigar Muradabadi which reads as under:

Ye ishq nahin aasaan itna to samajh leeje
Ek aag ka dariya hai aur doob ke jaana hai

There are many lyricists who joined Hindi film industry since the talkies came into being. While some of them became famous, many remained in the background though some of them were connected with the film industry for a considerable length of time. The result is we do not have much information about the latter category of lyricists as far as their their detailed profiles are concerned. In this category, the names of Dr. Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, Rammurti Chaturvedi, Bhutaram Sharma, Shams Lucknowi, Kaif Irfani, Shevan Rizvi and many more come to my mind. Among the ‘many mores’ is the lyricist Aziz Kashmiri about whom very little is known of his life before he joined Hindi film industry.

Why am I producing REHANA (1946)?

This was the heading of a full page advertisement issued by the producer G A Thakur, the owner of Girdhar Bahar Productions in October 1945 issue of ‘Filmindia’ magazine. He was announcing his intention of producing ‘Rehana’ (1946), the story of which is based on the Middle-East background. I have paraphrased below the reasons given by the producer in the advertisement:

So old order changes and gives way to new. 2015 is gone and now we are onto the new year of 2016. Just the change of one day changes the month as well as year. It is a symbolic change that is recognised only by humans. Other species, like for example our pets do not recognise this concept of change of months and years.

26th September – a day to remember, Dev Saab, the evergreen hero.  Also, a day to remember the voice of romanticism that added the essence of emotional expressions to many of his performances.  The deep bass voice of Hemant Kumar.

Remembering Hemant Da on the anniversary of his passing away today.

aao aao
laal paan ki begum
do ka chaar banaayenga, chaar ka aath banaayengaa

As promised, here is a very unique sales pitch song.  And very entertaining too, very fast paced – as fast paced as the real life protagonists who run these roadside trick business.  Yes, quick gambling – very quick, very dirty.  An innocent participant will always part with his money.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 1
————————————————-

I remember a very interesting scene from a film, seen long back on Doordarshan, whose name I am not able to recall right now.  The scene is in a moving train.  I think it is a Kishore Kumar film, but not very sure.  A person is selling ‘barfi’ in the train.  (‘Barfi’ is an Indian sweet made from milk and sugar).  He is carrying a tray full of barfi pieces, and is trying to catch the attention of the travelers, to sell and to earn.  He is not having much success.  He comes in front of Kishore Kumar, and a dialogue ensues.  Kishore asks him why should I buy this barfi from you.  The seller gives some very simple answers like it is good to eat and he needs to earn money.  Kishore tells him he will never be able to make a sale with such kind of answers.  Then he offers to make the sales pitch for him.  He conjures up a funny and interesting jingle about the barfi on the spot, and tries to catch the attention of fellow travellers, singing the jingle he has just created.  Of course he is able to make a lot more sales.  The seller is very impressed, and the two strike a friendship that lasts through the film.
