When Kidar Sharma wrote the lyrics of the song so jaa rajkumari so jaa, he might not have been aware that he wrote the first lori (lullaby) song for a Hindi film. Another thing he did differently was that he wrote the lori lyrics for a male singer-actor (K L Saigal) whereas the lori is traditionally sung by women. This could happen because, as he said in his autobiography ‘The One and Lonely Kidar Sharma’ (2002), he had in fact written a lori ‘so jaa raj dulari so jaa, so jaa main balihaari so jaa’ especially for his wife Raj Dulari. But K L Saigal fell in love with it and pressurised Kidar Sharma to make it public. It was only after his wife agreed that Kidar Sharma consented to use this lori for the film ‘Zindagi” (1940) by changing ‘raj dulari’ to ‘rajkumari’. This lori sung by K L Saigal became very popular all over India.

In the 30s and 40s, two groups of female actor-singers emerged prominently. The first group excelled in both acting and singing. Barring a few exceptions, they confined to playback singing on themselves. This group consisted mainly of Khursheed, Kanan Devi, Noor Jahan and Suraiya. The second group though started their filmy career as actor-singer in a smaller way, later they concentrated mainly on playback singing. This group comprised mainly of Rajkumari, Amirbai Karnataki, and Zohrabai Ambalewaali.

A title like “Badi Bahu” (1951)suggests that the movie must be all about self sacrificing lead female character, and that may not send people like me to eagerly look forward to watch the movie. Not by a long shot !

In olden days, tear jerker movies had a good market in India. These movies often had long suffering women shown to make sacrifices for no apparent reason and also singing nice songs in the bargain.
