“Poornima”(1965) was produced by Mahipat Ray Shah and directed by Narinder Suri for Roop Kala pictures, Bombay. The movie had Meena Kumari, Dharmendra, Anita Guha, Mahmood, Siddhu, Nazir Hussain, Durga Khote, Parveeen chaudhary, Sadhana Khote, Rajaa Nene, Kanu Roy, Kanchanmala, Kesari, Polson, Honey Irani, Babloo, P.D.Lal ,Polson, Snehmala, Raju, Baby Chand, Rajendra Singh, Johny Whisky, Shivjibhai etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Poornima”(1965) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a stage dance song on Meena Kumari, Anita Guha and others. Towards the end of the picturisation, a stanza from another song of the movie ( gori nain tumhaare kya kehne sung by Mukesh is artficially inserted.

It is one case where the video version, even though longer than the audio version is not authentic. It is the audio version, a Suman Kalyanpur solo song, which is the authentic version of the song. The video version may give the impression that it is a duet, but it is not.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

नाग लोक की एक नारी ने
धरती को अपनाया
पर श्राप ने
पत्नी का लो
पति से संग छुड़ाया
जाने क्या क्या खेल छुपा है
विधि के अजब विधान में
गर्भवती ये सती चल पड़ी
आँधी और तूफान में

हाए विधाता दुखियारी के
तुम कैसे पालक हो
अपने पिता की
मौत का कारण
उसका ही बालक हो
उसका ही बालक हो

HEARTIEST CONGRATULATIONS to atulsongaday.me for completing 14 successful years. By the time the Blog entered its ‘Teens’, it was already a famous and well known centre for rare songs with lyrics and credible information on the song, MD, Lyricists,the cast of that film and the related matters. Today it can proudly boast of being “The Point Of Reference” for dependable anecdotes, confirmations and detailed bios of less known/unknown old film artistes. The credit for all this goes to just one man, who single handedly managed and made this Blog a well known name in Cyberspace. It is our dear leader ATUL ji. Atul ji,thanks for making this Blog available for showcasing our information-wares to the world.

Here is wishing the Blog a more successful journey into the future, crossing many more milestones. And a big THANK YOU !

Today’s song is from the film Phoolon ke Haar-1951. I fail to understand why this film was titled Phoolon ke haar. I have seen this film, but I did not find any justifiable answer to this title.

The film was made by Shrikant Studio, Bombay. It was directed by G.P.Pawar, a veteran from Silent films. His first silent film as a director was Mysterious Prince-1929. He directed 10 silent films and then started directing Talkie films with Qatil kataar-1935. He directed 18 talkie films. His last film was Jang bahadur-1958. Pawar was the second husband of Lalita pawar, who was the heroine of many of his Silent films. Later they were divorced. She, however, continued using the surname Pawar till the end, although she got married to Shri Omprakash Gupta, who started the Ambika Studio, in the name of Lalita Pawar-whose real name was Ambu , a short form of Ambika.

The film had music by Hansraj Behl. He, in my opinion,was one of those composers in the film world, who composed lots of melodious songs. Unfortunately, he was also one of those composers who never got Big banners to work for. He and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave a chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 62 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film “Insaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl was one of the music directors who became successful in the post-independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 19 November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in the Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Lakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Azadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Azadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nationwide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mere Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost -1954 sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhan- 1956, ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan -1957, ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan -1957, ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay -1957, ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh -1960, ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan -1959 and ‘Tujhko Dhoondhu To Dhoondhu Kahaan..’ from Milan -1959 crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Aazam in 1965.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

The cast of the film Phoolon ke Haar-1951 was Nigar Sultana, Geeta Bali, Nasir khan, Yashodhara katju, Sundar, Madhav kale, Rani, Shakuntala, heeralal etc. The 11 songs of this film were written by Bharat Vyas, Indivar, Kaif irfani, D.N.Madhok and Varma malik. In the last so many years- till 1980 – I must have seen hundreds of Films- Hindi, Marathi, English, Tamil, Telugu, and Kannada. In the Hindi films, I can not forget 3 actresses, who were Bubbly, playful, with innocent looks and with Natural acting talent. They were Meena Shorey, Nalini Jaywant and Geeta Bali. I enjoyed every film of these actresses, which I saw. It is difficult to forget the role and acting of Meena Shorey in film ” Ek thi Ladki-49″, or Nalini Jaywant in film ” Hum sab chor hain-56″, or Geeta Bali in film ” Aji Bas Shukriya-58″. These were all my favourite actresses. It is very unfortunate that they all met their deaths in very tragic circumstances.

Geeta Bali’s dancing eyes and her animated, expressive face which mirrored her soul were her most outstanding features. Yet life was snatched away from this vibrant personality at an achingly young age of 35.It is some consolation that Geeta crammed a lot into her short life: 80 odd films in a ten-year career. She married struggling actor-turned-megastar Shammi Kapoor and mothered two children: a son and a daughter. Today, she is remembered as a wonderfully natural actress and a fabulous human being.She was quite close to her sisters and brother. Her childhood pet name was KEETA.
True, Geeta’s reputation as an actress rests more on her performances than her roles. Natural, spontaneous and gifted with a spot-on sense of comic timing, she never really found a vehicle worthy of her talent. Largely a shade better than the movies she starred in, she frittered away her talents in B-grade films. Probably the fact that she was born into a family that had to struggle for sheer survival and the fact that she reached the top through sheer grit had Geeta stress on quantity rather than quality. Film lore has it that when mentor [filmmaker] Kidar Sharma first met Geeta, she was living with her family in somebody’s bathroom!

Geeta Bali (real name Harkirtan kaur) was born in Amritsar on 30-11-1930, in a Sikh family, known for its religious and Scholarly traditions. Her father was a Sikh Missionary Preacher and travelled not only all over India, but also to Burma, Ceylon and Malaya. Due to frequent change of place, Geeta’s education was not consistent and it ended after 6th standard. When the family was in Kashmir, she joined the dancing and music classes. Keeta (her family nickname) did dance performances on stage in her schools.

When she was about 9-10 year old, she gave a public performance of her Dance in Lucknow. The puritans in their society objected, made a hue and cry and the pendal was burnt, to stop her show. Such experiences made her very bold in life. While at Lahore, Geeta directly entered the A.I.R. office to get a music contract. She got it also. She used to participate in Children’s programmes.

Through her Dance Director in A.I.R., she got into a documentary ” Cobbler” made by Shorey pictures. Impressed, she got a dance performance in film ” Badnami”-46 as well as Kahan Gaye-46 and Pancholi’s Patjhad-47, before moving to Mumbai. Impressed by her off-screen vivacity, Sharma cast Geeta in his Suhaag Raat (1948). Audiences related to her instantly and watched wide-eyed as she nonchalantly tossed her unconscious hero, Bharat Bhushan over her shoulder in a scene.

Soon, Geeta was inundated with contracts (that’s what they called film offers then). She accepted most. She won raves even in supporting roles like in the 1949 Suraiya starrer Badi Behan and the Madhubala starrer Dulari. In 1951, she became a major star with Guru Dutt’s first hit, Baazi (she went on to do three other films under his direction). Geeta played a gangster’s moll with a golden heart to Kalpana Kartik’s conventional heroine. But Geeta played her role with such gay abandon that hero Dev Anand divulges, “People came repeatedly to theatres to see Geeta’s spirited dancing to Tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana de.

Next she worked with Raj Kapoor in Bawre Nain-50, Bhagwan’s Albela-51 and Navketan’s Baazi-52. Now there was no looking back. Geeta Bali went on to act in 80 films in her short career of just 14 years. She even sang a few lines in a song from the film Rangeen Raaten-56, with Shamshad Begum and Uma Devi. She worked with Prithviraj Kapoor in Anand math-52 and his sons Raj kapoor in Bawre nain and in many films with Shammi kapoor. With Dev Anand she did Baazi, Faraar, Milap, Jaal, Zalzala, Ferry and Pocket Maar. She worked opposite Ashok Kumar, Motilal, Balraj Sahani, Prem Adib, Jairaj, Rehman, Bharat Bhushan, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kamal Kapoor, Karan Dewan, Shekhar, Sajjan, Amarnath, Jaswant and Suresh.

Some of her notable films were, Girls’ School-49, Dulari-49, Badi bahen-49, Nishana-550,Bawre Nain-50, Baazi-51, Albela-51, Zalzala-52, Raag Rang-52, Anand Math-52, Jhamela-53, Baaz-53, Daaku ki Ladki-54, Vachan-55, Miss Coca Cola-55, Jawab-55, Faraar-55, Bara Dari-55, Albeli-55, Pocket Maar-56, inspector-56, Coffee House-57, Mujrim-58, Jailor-58, Aji Bas Shukriya-58, Mr. India-61 etc etc.
Geeta proved she could do tragedy (Sharma’s Raj Kapoor starrer Bawre Nain) or and play the lighthearted heroine to comedian Bhagwan in the super successful Albela. Albela’s swinging C Ramchandra composed songs like Shola jo bhadke and Sham dhale mere khidki tale made front-benchers dance with the stars and even fling coins on screen. Pug-nosed Geeta was no conventional beauty, but that transparent face and that smile constantly flirting on her lips made sure you couldn’t tear your eyes away from her.

Watch Geeta Bali in the Guru Dutt-directed Jaal (1952). Dev Anand, a cigarette-smoking smuggler on the run from the police, tries to entice morally upstanding heroine Geeta into his web. Geeta evocatively communicates her struggle against, and her eventual surrender to, handsome Dev’s seduction call Yeh raat, yeh chandni phir kahan Famously down-to-earth despite her star status, Geeta was the antithesis of the coy 1950s’ heroine. She often drove herself to her premieres in an open jeep. Those who knew her claim she was a Samaritan who touched the lives of whoever she met. She is said to have personally groomed Mala Sinha, then a newcomer.

To date, so many years after her death, her secretary Surinder Kapoor’s (Boney Kapoor’s father) productions begin with a shraddhanjali to Geeta Bali.

Shammi Kapoor entered her life when they worked in the quaintly named Miss Coca Cola and Coffee House together. On an impulse, Geeta played a small role of a man in Sharma’s Shammi Kapoor starrer Rangeen Raatein. On the film’s Ranikhet outdoor, Shammi and Geeta fell in love. Kapoor was a year younger to her and was not yet a star, but the twosome were hell bent on marrying each other. Geeta had worked with Shammi’s eldest brother, Raj Kapoor in Bawre Nain, and with his father, Prithviraj Kapoor in Anand Math, Shammi was unsure about their reaction to this match. But on August 23, 1955, with producer-director Hari Walia and friend Johnny Walker as witness, the couple were married at the Banganga Temple at 4 am.

Geeta continued to work after marriage in a few films like Sohrab Modi’s Jailor (1958), where she won raves as a blind girl. With Shammi Kapoor turning into a huge star and the birth of her two children Aditya (nicknamed Mickey) and Kanchan, she eased her workload.

The desire to do that one fulfilling role she would be remembered for prompted Geeta to attempt the production of a classic for herself. She started Rano, based on Rajinder Singh Bedi’s famous novel, Ek Chadar Maili Si, based on a widow’s remarriage to her brother-in-law. Upcoming star Dharmendra played her hero.

Geeta, had not been vaccinated for smallpox, despite the fact her father too had died of Smallpox. She had ignored repeated warnings in her childhood. She contracted the dreaded disease while shooting the film. The best care was rushed to her, but her fever apparently reached 107 degrees. Her doctor saw a picture by his patient’s bedside and asked who the pretty lady was. The disease had so wracked Geeta’s frail frame that he didn’t recognise her as the same person!

Geeta Bali passed away on January 21, 1965, leaving behind eight-year-old Aditya and three-year-old Kanchan in the care of a devastated Shammi Kapoor.

Ironically, she was cremated in Banganga, not far from where she was married. ( adapted from Rediffmail.com, books Star Portraits by Harish Booch and Stars of the Indian Screen by Baburao Patel, India Today, Yaadon ki Baaraat by Shirish Kanekar and my notes – with thanks.)

Today’s song is sung by Shamshad Begum in her inimitable typical unique voice. Let us enjoy this song.


Song- Mohobbat chikni chikni hai ke baabu phisal na jaana (Phoolon Ke Haar)(1951) Singer- Shamshad Begum, Lyricist- Bharat Vyas, MD- Hansraj Behl

Lyrics

mohabbat chikni chikni hai
ke baabu phisal na jaana
mohabbat chikni chikni hai

ho o o
zamaana re zamaana haaye zamaana hoy
zamaana naazuk naazuk hai
kisi se dil na lagaana
mohabbat chikni chikni hai
ke baabu phisal na jaana

kaabu mein rakhna baabu
ye dil hai bada mawaali
kaabu mein rakhna baabu
ye dil hai bada mawaali
beech bajariya bik jaayenge
lota bartan thhaali
bich bajariya bik jaayenge
lota bartan thhaali
ho o o
ye dhanda re ye dhandha haaye ye dhandha hoy
ye dhadna ulta pulta hai
ke ulte latak na jaana
mohabbat chikni chikni hai
ke baabu phisal na jaana

ye powder aur surkhi waale
gore gore mukhde
ye powder aur surkhi waale
gore gore mukhde
le jaate hain nakad naaraayan

ye galiyaan uljhi uljhi hain

mohabbat chikni chikni hai

mohabbat chikni chikni hai

zamaana naazuk naazuk hai
kisi se dil na lagaana

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered.

Here is that final song from the movie. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

The song is picturised on Nirupa Roy playing a bride and getting married to the wrong groom. She would not point this out to her elders, rather she would make the most of this opportunity to sing a melancholic song. Singing a melancholic song,(when wronged by fate) was considered the ultimate act of Bhartiya Nari in Hindi movies of those days. Nirupa Roy was one of the leading Bhartiya Naaris of those days. subsequently she graduated to the role of the ultimate Hindi movie maa. 🙂

Amar is also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

With this song, all the nine songs of “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) get covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 53

This day ten years ago viz 16thJune’2012 saw five songs getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Yoon na reh reh kar hamen tarsaaiye Master Madan (NFS)(1935) N/A
Ye khaamoshiyaan ye samaa Samrat(1954) All songs covered

We can see that five songs were posted on this date ten years ago. One song was a non film song (NFS) and remaining four songs were from four different movies.

The movies represented were ‘Samrat-1954’, ‘Suhaag Sindoor-1961’, ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ and ‘Chhote Babu-1957’. Out of these four movies three movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Janam Janam Ke Phere(1957) is the only unYIPPEED movie from that day.

I had watched this movie during my childhood. I do not have not reecollection of the movie. But, the title of the movie and its most popular song, viz ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ is permanently ethed in the Read Only Memory (ROM) of my mind.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voice to the songs in this movie.

The movie had the following songs in it:-

09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The movie has already lasted for over thirteen years on the blog without being YIPPEED. 🙂

Today we present the eighth and penultimate song from this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Nirupa Roy lip-syncs on screen. Manhar Desai and B.M. Vyas are also visible in the picturisation.

Lyrics for the song were sent by Prakashchandra.

The video link of this song has three stanzas; however the audio link has only two stanzas.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Sati Vaishalini-1959’.

‘Sati Vaishalini-1959’ was directed by Sadhu Singh for ‘Rati Chitra, Mumbai’. It was produced by P.N. Rangeen.

It had Trilok Kapoor, Sulochana, Lalita Pawar, Ratnamala, Krishnakumari, Niranjan Sharma, Nand Kishore, Tiwari, Shyam, Hari, Krishna Kumar, Roshanlal, and others. Heeralal, Sheela Kashmiri, Savita Chatterjee, Jyoti, Niranjan Tiwari, and Kamal Kapoor had made in guest appearances in this movie.

HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions in its foot note on this movie page that this movie was also known as ‘Janam Janam Ka Naata’. HFGK also mentions that the story of this movie was based on ‘Markandeya Puraan’.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.11.1959.

‘Sati Vaishalini’ had eight songs written by Bharat Vyas. Music for this movie was composed by Premnath. (As mentioned by Atul ji while presenting the first song from this movie on the blog, this Premnath is different from the actor of the same name).

This movie had made its debut on the blog on 15.10.2016 with its song ‘jab tak khadaa himaalay hai… amar rahegi is jag mein’. think This was the only song from this movie that was available for posting those days. Now music enthusiasts have uploaded one more song from this movie which we will be listening to today.

Let us have a look at the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jab tak khadaa himaalay… amar rahegi is jag mein Mohd Rafi, chorus 15.10.2016
02 Aaja re aaja re… kaho ji kaun boley … Asha Bhonsle, Rafi
03 Tu chaahe to raat… hey gori maat sun… Asha Bhonsle, chorus
04 Arey vidhaata-2, mere bhaag mein toone kya likhaa Asha Bhonsle
05 Chaahe bhale chanda tale… ya naata janam janam ka Asha Bhonsle
06 Paaon mein kaante bichhe…pati mere shyam pati mere raam Asha Bhonsle
07 Ek sati sat ke dagar par chal padi. pi se milne ki chaah hai Manna Dey
08 Ghiri ghataayein ghanghor… rakshaa-2, kar bhagwaan Asha Bhonsle, chorus

Today’s song is ‘chaahe log kare apmaan … ye hai naata janam janam ka’. I guess that that today’s song is the ‘fifth’ song in chronological order in the movie.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics for today’s song are by Bharat Vyas and music is composed by Premnath.

Tune of this song is reminiscent of some other song, but I am not able to recall that song as of now.

Only audio of the song is available. I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and it’s songs.

Let us listen to the song now.


Song-Chaahe log karen apmaan (Sati Vaishalini)(1959) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Premnath (MD)

Lyrics

Today’s song is a foot tapping song from the film Fashionable wife-1959.

Nepotism,Corruption and Lack of Nationalism are the 3 ills common to most Indians.These things have been so common that not only now they are deep rooted in our behaviour, but also we have stopped considering them as vices anymore. They are a part of our life in many ways.

Corruption at every level of every aspect of our living is practiced unabashedly. From giving bribes to a policeman for breaking a traffic rule to giving bribes to get a Govt. Contract has become an easy way to replace discipline and hard work. After 15th August and 26th January, torn Indian Flags on the road and in the dustbins as well as stealing Govt. property from Railway Coaches and Govt. offices is a routine sight we come across. The plum jobs going to close relatives of big officers is no longer considered a crime !

These are very irritating matters when they concern and trouble us. If it is not concerning us, we take them philosophically !

In India these 3 criminal vices are spread to all walks of life and are found in almost every department. Can our Film Industry be far off from this ? Certainly Not !

Those already successful and adorning a high pedestal position in the film line, try to push their children or siblings into this line, irrespective of whether they have the talent or not. For others ” The Casting Couch” is seen as a kind of corruption or ‘wilful’ bribing. Making films with distorted History intentionally and glorifying the historical characters who looted India and did unlimited harm to Indians is nothing but a lack of Nationalism !

Nepotism is one ill which has been there in the films from the beginning. Bringing sons and daughters-even the wife- as actors has been there always. The Heroine of the First Indian Talkie film “Alam Ara”-1931, Zubeida had her 2 sisters and mother in the film line. One of the actors of this film- Prithviraj kapoor practically became the father of Indian films. His all sons, Grandsons, great grandsons and daughters came into films.

Acting is not a Genetic quality. It is not necessary that every successful actor or director’s children can become successful actors automatically. More often than not the star sons and daughters have (luckily) failed, saving the audience the trauma of bearing their stony presence on the silver screen. There is a long list of such failed stars, star sons and star daughters, but I quote here only a few examples.

It is said that ‘No trees can grow under a Banyan Tree’. This is absolutely true and applicable in Film industry. Except in cases like the Kapoor family, i.e. Raj,Shammi and Shashi,who made their bright careers despite the shadow of their Father and other Brothers, we find that many of the sons,daughters,brothers or sisters of many popular and famous film stars were failures and never made it big in Hindi cinema.

We know cases like Suneil Anand, Nasir Khan, Tony Walker, Naina Sahu, Meera Joglekar, Ajit Chitnis, Rajendranath, Narendranath, Anup Kumar, Mallika, Khursheed Jr., Simple Kapadiya, Shivangi Kolhapure, Preeti Ganguly, Radhika and many more. In spite of having all the backing of famous family members, these and so many others just did not make it, because Talents are not always hereditary !

They all were given fair opportunities to display their talent on the screen , but unfortunately despite their honest effort their skill could not come out & the viewers were left unimpressed . They were selected by big banners and well experienced directors were there to guide them. But their talent remained hidden inside them and with their nonexistent artistry they disappointed their mentors. Non-actor Sohan Kapila was in the romantic lead of Filmistan’s Babar , which was released in 1960. Hemen Gupta , distinguished director ,who earlier had directed Anand Math for Filmistan ,directed the movie and it also had the winning combination of Sahir & Roshan. Dependable character actor Gajanan Jagirdar did the role of great Moghal Emperor Babar . But the movie flopped ,as the new hero failed pathetically to register any emotion on his face. A big jolt for Seth Tola Ram Jalaan ,who was already facing financial problems. Mr. Kapila appeared in 2-3 movies in inconsequential roles and disappeared from the scene forever . His daughter Padmini Kapila also pursued a film career ,but could not achieve much success .

There were many other actors like him ,who got a chance to appear opposite illustrious heroines , unfortunately their effort did not make any impact on the cine loving public. Watching their miserable performance on the screen , no film maker came forward to sign them . Out of sight is out of mind ,it was a matter of time when the public as well as the film industry forgot them.

Malhaar, as the name suggests, is a musical film produced by great singer Mukesh in 1951 . It had a story by veteran actor S K Prem & its evergreen music was composed by Roshan . The movie had newcomers Arjun & Shammi (Nargis Rabadi ). Arjun did get another chance in Daku Ki Ladki to please the viewers with his emoting before the camera, but could not succeed and it was the end of his career.

Rattan Chopra the lucky boy was selected for films , among hundreds of aspirants . Mohan Kumar had suffered a huge setback when Aman flopped .He took the newcomer for Mom Ki Gudia ,opposite Tanuja, with great hopes. Unfortunately , Mom Ki Gudia failed to dispel the gloom and sank to the rock bottom. Acting was not his cup of tea ,Rattan Chopra understood & wisely opted out of the race of stardom.

K. Amarnath introduced new comer Vijay Kumar in his 1954 offering Alif Laila opposite Nimmi & Asha Mathur . Sohan Kapila and Vijay Kumar had impressive physiques , but had no clue about acting. The movie had lilting music by Shyam Sunder ,which was his last contribution towards the film industry . Helen for the first time got a chance to perform solo in the movie & for many decades she remained on top. But for Vijay Kumar it was his first & last chance.

Another non actor Premendra was introduced by old timer Vijay Bhatt in Holi Aayee Re (1970),which was directed by his younger sibling Harsukh Bhatt. It was pathetic to watch Premendra unsuccessfully trying to showcase his imaginary ability in the field of acting .The movie flopped phenomenally & a huge investment made by Bhatt Brothers went up in a cloud of smoke. Premender with Kumud Chhugani in Holi Aayee Re.

There were some more like Pratibha Sinha, Archan Gupta, Jayant Gupta, Ashok Sharma, Nusrat Kardar, Rajeev kapoor, Manish kumar, Navinchandra, Aroop kumar, Prashant, Shalini, Kaycee Mehra, Vikram, Shekhar Suman, Deepak kumar, Ajay, Som Dutt and many more.

Among them, some film names which I remember off hand are Arjun in Malhar-51, Rattan Chopra in Aman-67,Mom ki Gudia-72, Vijay Kumar in Alif laila-54,Premendra in Holi aayee re-70, Deepak kumar in Aabroo-68, Ajay in Wapas-69, Som Dutt in mann ka meet-68, Vikram in Julie-75,Rajeev Kapoor in Raam teri Ganga maili-85, Shekhar Suman in Utsav-84, Kaycee Mehra in Chhabilee-60 and Mem Didi-61, Prashant in Sehra-63, Ashok Sharma in Hamari yaad aayegi-61, Ajit Chitnis in Aaj ki baat-55, Nusrat Kardar in Dard-47, Manish in SaraswatiChandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

All this came to my mind when I saw the film cast of Fashionable wife. The cast included Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Radhakishen, Manorama, Leela Mishra, Daisy Irani and many others. heroine Jaymala was the wife of the producer, director and the owner of the banner ‘Adarshlok’, Bombay – B.K.Adarsh. This was her Debut film as a Heroine. At first glance, one will tend to feel that being the director’s wife must have been her way to be the film’s Heroine. But to be fair, she was already in the film line before marriage, though not as a Heroine.

Jaymala was born on 21-8-1938 at kasur, Punjab. She always craved to become an actress. She came to Bombay along with a relative and got a small role in the film Mandir-1948.

Her first major film was Hazar pariyan-1957. Some of her films were Ramudada, Durga pooja, Harshchandra Taramati, Love and Murder, Spy in Rome, Rambha Haran, Balak, Sampoorna Teerth Yatra, Veer Arjun, Babruwahan, Aaj ka ye Ghar etc.

She acted in 24 films. She even sang a song in the film Fashionable wife-1959.

After marriage with Adarsh Lok,she debuted as a Heroine in FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959. She had a double role in this film.Then she continued with Adarsh Lok’s films as a Heroine only. After husband’s death, she managed his production company. Her last film was Private Life-1983, as a Heroine and a Producer. Her son Taran Adarsh is a famous film critic.

She died on 27-7-1997 in Mumbai.

It is a coincidence that my last post was also on a film where sisters were seen in double roles. Today’s film also has sisters in double roles again. The film story is…

FASHIONABLE WIFE-1959 was produced and directed by Adarsh Lok, the Music Director was the duo of Suresh-Talwar ( Assistant Johnny Gomes) and the lyricist was Bharat Vyas. Story,Screenplay and Dialogues were by Waheed Qureshi. The cast was Jaymala, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anup Kumar, Leela Mishra, Iftekar, Nazir Hussain, Achala Sachdev, Radha Kishen, Manorama etc.

Girdhari and Susheela were a couple who continuously fought over only one point-how to bring their twin daughters. Susheela wanted them to be traditional and Girdhari was keen on making them ultra modern” to face the new World’. Finally the couple separated with Ragini opting for the traditional Mother and Kamini staying with her Modern Papa.

Ragini marries Balraj(Abhi Bhattacharya) and she is very happy. However her Mother in law(Leela Mishra) is not happy with her and there are daily fights, culminating in Ragini leaving her house and doing social work independently.

Kamini marries Natwar(Anup Kumar), her Dance trainer and happily lives with him, enjoying life. She has no time for any household responsibilities. She spends quite a lot arranging frequent parties. Due to all this her young devar Raju runs away from the house and Natwar is also fed up with her.

In short both the girls have a spoiled family life.

There is comic relief in the form of Manorama and Radha Kishen, who are the neighbours.

After many twists, coincidences and meaningless happenings, the girls learn their lessons. The film tries to stress that Traditional ways are always better, but they also must mix a little modernity in keeping with the times.

At the end Girdhari and Susheela unite,so do Kamini-Natwar and Balraj and Ragini.

Today’s song is sung by Jaymala and chorus. This is the only song which she ever sang in films. With this song she makes her Debut as a singer,on our Blog.

In the second half of the 50’s decade, films were deeply influenced by Rock N Roll music. This song is also like that.

Blog Day :

4991 Post No. : 16885

Today (18 march 2022), the blog had two guest posts so far, and both pertained to Holi. That created some confusion in my mind. I was under the impression that Holika dahan is on the night of 18/19 march and Holi is on 19 march 2022. To add to my confusion, I found out that Railway HQ in Southern Railway, Chennai was open today on 18 march 2022. It turns out that I was out of phase by one day from others. It turns out that even Chennai celebrates holiday today. It is only Southern Railway HQ in Chennai that has decided to work on this day. 🙂

When one looks at the festival category (on the right side of the blog), one finds that the blog has as many as 67 Holi related songs. The second most popular festival is Deepaawali (38 songs) and then Rakhi (24 songs). Looking at the nature of the festivals, it is not very difficult to guess why Holi is the most popular festival for Hind movie makers. It gives then a genuine reason to indulge in a song and dance sequence full of box office hit ingredients, viz color, revelry, two genders dancing together and getting wet thanks to coloured water sprinkled on them from pichkaari.

Even in real life, this festival is popular for similar reasons. And it is popular among trouble makers as well.

On this day, trains remain empty. It is so unlike the occasion of Deepaawali when trains run to full capacity and you cannot have berths in trains. I, not averse to act diferent from the masses, had once (nearly four decades ago)travelled by train on the day of Holi from Jamalpur to Patna and then from Patna to Ranchi. On normal days entering the train itself was a tall order. But on that day, I was perhaps the only occupant of those trains.

With 67 Holi songs under the belt of the blog, some people may feel that we have run out of Holi songs to cover. Nothing can be farther from the truth. There are still lots and lots of Holi songs that are not yet covered in the blog. I have already mentioned it earlier that HOli is the most popular festival among movie makers, and so Holi related songs keep appearing in Hindi movies even today. This genre of song is unlikely to go out of fashion in Hindi movies.

Prakashchandra himself has singlehandedly sent me dozens of Holi realted songs. Moreover, I have discovered some more Holi songs on my own. All these supply of Holi songs will last us for many Holi festivals. 🙂

The Holi song that accompanies this post is from “Banjaarin”(1960). This movie was produced and directed by Ratan KUmar for Ratan Produced by Ratan Kumar for Ratan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini (Debutant), Lalita Kumari, Sunder, Indira Bansal, Chetan Kumar, Shree Bhagwan, Dalpat (in triple role), T.N.Sinha, Bagla, Murari, Prayag Dutt, Hari, Kapoor, Polson, Master Papoo, Bela, Paro, Laxminarayan, Rehana, Geeta, Meera etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Banjaarin”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pardesi (or Pardeshi).

The song is picturised as a Holi festivity song on Manhar Desai, Kanchan Kamini, Lalita Kumari Sinha, Indira Bansal etc.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a (somewhat belated) happy and safe Holi.

Remarks:- It was pointed out by Mr Partha Chanda, our regular visitor with a keen eyae that the same song was discussed under “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) on 5 april 2020. On checking up, that indeed turned out to be the case. On further investigation, it turned out that the song was originally intended for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957), but it could not be accomodated there. Finally this song was included in “Banjaarin”(1960) which had more or less the same starcast as “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(19557) with some changes.

I thank Nahm, our regular contributor, for pointing out this fact. Since this song was composed for “Janam Janam Ke Phere”(1957) so its lyricist is Bharat Vyas and music director is S N Tripathi, unlike other songs of “Banjaarin”(1960) where Pt Madhur is the lyricist and Pardesi is the music director.

I have now replaced the earlier post of 5 april 2020 containing the same song by another Rafi Shamshad Begam duet and penned by the same lyricist (Bharat Vyas).
