Today’s song is from the film Toote Khilaune-54. It is produced by N.Mehta, directed by Nanabhai Bhatt and the music Director is my favourite – Chitragupt. The cast of the film was Shekhar, Purnima, Gulab, Ranjeet Kumari, Master Romi, Babu Raje, a dog called Ginger and Guest artiste Asha Mathur.

This was a typical family film, involving a too much interfering Mother in law, a foster son and a loving step mother. The decade of the 50s was a period when the film makers were trying their best to give something to everyone. Films of almost all Genres were made in this decade. This decade was a Bridge Period between the old style music and the film making and the New Age films and the Music.

Sadly, the melody in Music had died a slow death, along with the phased exit of composers of the 40s and the 50s. Though emergence of New Age music makers kept the country on par with the changing world tastes, the Music, in particular, suffered the demise of melody and sweetness in film music. Earlier too,songs were inspired by foreign tunes, but the new age music based on foreign tunes was more noisy and instrument dominant, rather than the melody of tunes and singing styles. The 1959 film ‘ Dil deke dekho’ heralded loudly the coming of new age music from then on.

One can not blame the music makers alone, because not only the tastes of audience were changing, but also a whole new generation of producers, directors, actors, singers and composers was replacing the older one step by step. No change takes place overnight. One always gets the warning signals well in advance. Change is inevitable. Either accept change or perish !

Music composers from the 40s and 50s did survive in the 60’s decade, but they were relegated to B and C grade films. Very few composers remained A grade even in 60 or the early 70s. Ultimately, they had to give way to new music. This change was seen as the ” end of the Golden Period” of film music.

Cases like that of Chitragupta and others of his ilk were different. They operated long time but never became A grade. However, it was to their credit that even then, they composed melodious songs which delighted lovers of good music. That is why I like Chitragupt songs. Pick them up from any film and you will not be disappointed as far as melody and good tunes are concerned.

Songs of Toote Khilaune-54 are no exception. Songs were very sweet. There were 8 songs (this was another change that took place in the 50s onwards. Now films had songs less than 10 on average- unlike 10 to 15 songs in 40s and 15 to 20 songs in the 30s). 3 songs are already discussed here. Today’s song is 4th song. This is a duet sung by Chitragupt and Shamshad Begum.

From the cast, I have written about Shekhar and Purnima in my earlier posts. The 3 odd names appearing in the cast are Gulab, Ranjeet kumari and Asha Mathur. Ranjeet kumari’s name was Ranjit kaur. She was a sikh from Punjab. She acted in only 8 films, from Matwali Meera-40 to her last film Toote Khilaune-54. She got married to actor Ramsingh and moved with him to his village in U.P. to become and remain a housewife till her last day.

One of the few educated actresses of her times, Asha Mathur (Sohan Singh in real life) studied up to B.A. Both Asha Mathur and Bina Roy were introduced by Kishore Sahu in Kali Ghata (1951). While Bina Roy was relatively more successful among the two and did some memorable movies including Anarkali (1953) and Taj Mahal (1963), Asha Mathur was relegated to obscure mythical and costume films including Alif Laila (1953), Rajyogi Bharthari (1954), Malka-E-Alam Noorjehan (1954), Amar Kirtan (1954) etc because of her lackluster performances. Her most memorable role was in Poonam (1952), as a suffering wife of Ashok Kumar. She married famous director of her times Mohan Sehgal and left films. She acted only in 18 films. Her last film was Taqdeer-58.

Asha Mathur is a forgotten name today except for the few popular songs picturized on her – Humsai na poocho koi pyra kiya hai (Kali Ghata, 1951) and Baanki adayein dekh na ji dekh na(Amanat, 1955).

One of the beauties of old films was Gulab. The First actress form Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film’Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by east India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed bu Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. Her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64. She also sang 22 songs in 11 films.

The story of film Toote Khilaune-54 , as found on Cineplot, is…..Pragati Pictures’ “Toote Khilone,” premiered at the Roxy Theatre on March 19th, 1954 is pro­duced by N. Mehta and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt and it is a very good film based on a story-idea whose truth and simplicity invest it with an irresistible appeal.
The deeply moving and very human story, sensitively enacted by Shekhar, Purnima, Asha Mathur and little Romi, tells of a little child and his bewildered sorrow in the midst of do­mestic troubles.

Written by Akhtar Mirza, the story centers on a young married couple and their little son who dotes on his mother’s cousin, Sheela. When the mother dies of cancer, Sheela stays on to look after the little boy and eventually marries his father.

Trouble arrives in the shape of Sheela’s mother who moves into the happy household and builds up in her daughter a resentment against the child. The poisonous insinuations of the older woman turn Sheela into a confused and bitter foster-mother, but kindness and love triumph when the heart-broken child runs away. The film reaches a cleverly presented climax in which Sheela and her husband find the child safe and all three happily return home.

Playing his role with restraint and sym­pathy is Shekhar who puts over a fine perform­ance as the boy’s father. His portrayal of a man who marries a second time so that his child may have a mother is quite flawless.

As the young wife, Purnima is superb. Hers is a natural and convincing performance, done with a fine understanding of the role.

A superb performance comes from Romi, as the little boy caught up in a web of circumst­ances he cannot understand. He is utterly lov­able and, together with the wonderful canine star, Ginger, he walks away with the picture’s honors.

Gulab turns in another one of her brilliant cameos as the interfering mother-in-law, and Asha Mathur gives an appealing and warm in­terpretation of the tragic role of Shekhar’s wife.

The fine supporting cast is headed by Ranjit Kumari and Babu Raje who provide the comedy relief as the kind, devoted servants.

Gay and appealing dances punctuate the story, and the songs, with the music composed by Chitragupta, are melodious.

“Toote Khilone” is a charming film, well directed and acted, with polished production values and excellent sets, decor and photogra­phy.

Let us now enjoy the melodious duet of Chitragupt and Shamshad Begum from film Toote Khilaune-54.

Today’s song is from film Toofan Queen-46. From the title itself, it is clear that this was a C grade Action/Stunt film. This is confirmed once you see its cast comprising of Fearless Nadia, Prakash, Shanta Patel, Anant Prabhu, Shyamsunder, Agha Shapur, Vijay Kumar and Motor cycle ” Champion”.

In Nadia’s films, not only the human characters had names but even her animal helpers and Auto machines had special names. As long as she was in Wadia Movietone, till 1942, she had Punjab ka beta (Horse), Gunboat (Dog), and Austin ki beti ( a jalopy). After she joined Homi Wadia’s Basant Pictures, she had Rajpoot (Horse), Moti (Dog) and Austin ki bachhi (a jalopy). In addition, whenever required, she used a Motor cycle called ” Champion” !

Stunt films was one of my favourite Genres in my younger days. Now of course, this genre does not exist anymore. The action and stunt part of the film is entrusted to the Special effects Team- deleting the need of stunt actors. The Hero of the film himself does most of the stunts and fighting, even in a social film, so the stuntmen and fighters have hardly any job now to justify a complete Stunt film. Actually the line between social and action, social and musical and social, comedy, horror, historical and stunt film is no more visible !

From the days of silent films till about the middle of the 50s, stunt type of films were being made. In early cinema, Shankar rao Vazre, Ganpat Bakre, Yeshwant Dave and Master Vithal were the popular ” Maar peet” film Heroes. Later on, Fearless Nadia took over the reigns and the Genre concluded with films made by Bhagwan dada.

Music in stunt films had insignificant value or importance, so there were no specialised composers in this field. Since stunt films were made generally on shoe-string budgets, any composer, who settles for minimum fees would be selected. Therefore one would see strange unknown composers like Dilip Chand Vedi, Master Dinkar, Brijlal, Mushtaq Ahmed, Sunder das, Master Mohammed, Mohd. Hussain, M.Chhaila, Ram Hira,H.R.Bhalla, Master manzoor, Motilal, G.A.Khan, Amir hussain Khan, Kanhaiya Pawar, Vinod Ganguli, S.N.Manjrekar, Kikubhai Yagnik, Abdul karim khan etc etc.

Some of the composers, who made a name later on in film industry, actually started their careers from stunt, action and Mythological films . One such prominent name was that of CHITRAGUPTA ( SHRIVASTAV ), who gave music to film Toofan Queen-46, our today’s film.

Chitragupta Shrivastav (16-11-1917 to 14-1-1991) was born, brought up and educated in Bihar. He was perhaps the most educated composer of his times. He had done M.A. in Economics from Patna University and also taught for few years. He came to Bombay in 1945 and having learnt classical music wanted to become a composer. He started as an assistant to S N Tripathi. His first break came in 1946 with ” Lady Robin hood”. Initially he got only stunt and devotional films to do. In 1955, Dada Burman recommended him to AVM for “Shiv Bhakta “. This was a landmark film for Chitragupta, because he used Lata for the First time. Later Lata and Chitragupta had very good relations,till the end.

Actually Chitragupta should be counted as No 1 composer who gave very melodious songs to Lata, but this is forgotten, because like Madan Mohan, Roshan,S-J, C.Ramchandra or S D Burman, he never got big banner films ( at least not very often), which became a reason to discuss only their Lata songs frequently. Chitragupta always got mostly B and C grade films,which were not famous,but he was in no way less capable of composing good tunes for Lata.

Chitragupta was a very homely family man with a middle class mentality. He had a fun group comprising of Lata, Usha, Meena, Dilip Dholakiya, Prem Dhawan and Chitragupta. They used to have lot of fun at the home of Chitragupta. Lata liked their food very much. Chitragupta Shrivastav was a Kayastha ( ” Lalaji ” as they are called in Bihar ) and their Non veg food was excellent.

In the late 80s, I came in personal contact with Chitragupta,when my close friend’s daughter married his elder son. When Chitragupta learned that I liked ” Sattu ki poori ” very much, he called me to his house and we ate Sattu Puris and Alloo Sabji, to our heart’s content !

His house in Prabhat building on Khar Road,Bombay had a Music room on the ground floor,where he composed his most tunes during 1959 to 1990. During the early 60s upto 65,he was so busy with work that-according to his son Anand- at one time 4 Lyricists were writing Lyrics in his home,Anand Bakshi in Garden,Majrooh in a room,Rajendra krishna in the Music room and Prem Dhawan under a palm tree and Chitragupta used to visit one by one to see their progress !!

Chitragupta was such a simple person that when S-J demanded 5 Lakhs per film,he hesitated to ask for 50000 !

He remained a typical Gentleman till the end. He was expert in using Bihari folk tunes in his songs. He became the First MD of the First Bhojpuri film ” Ganga maiyya tori piyri chadhaibo’-1962. His main singers remained Lata, Rafi and Mukesh.

As far as singing songs is concerned, it was his hobby. He must have sung about 30 odd songs in 16 films in his career. Most songs were for S N Tripathi,who was his Guru in film Music. He gave music to 149 films, composing 1036 songs. His last film was Shivganga-1989.

Film Toofan Queen-46 was a stunt film, featuring Fearless Nadia, prakash etc etc. A lot has been written on Nadia here and on the Internet. I too have written about Nadia, especially, how I was able to meet her in Bombay during early 80s, in one of my earlier articles. So, today we will know more about the Hero Prakash.

The real name of actor Prakash was Hashmat Ullah Khan. He was born in 1914 at Gwalior, where his father was a businessman.The family was originally a Punjabi Muslim. Hashmat studied somehow upto Inter arts and left the college. He was an overactive child , interested in acting in films. Hashmat ran away to Bombay and worked in Sagar Movietone. He got a small uncredited role in film Village Girl-1936. Not satisfied with this, he travelled to Calcutta.

In Calcutta, Hashmat worked in 3 films-Taqdeer ka teer aka Premlakshya-36,Hawai Daku aka Bandit of the Air-36 ( this was the first film of K N Singh as a Hero. Mazhar Khan was the villain here) and Dangerous woman aka Khatarnak Aurat-38. He also got a miniscule role in New Theatre’s film Abhagin-38. Not getting what he aspired, Hashmat shifted to Delhi and worked in A.I.R. as a singer. True to his nature within two years he left this job and landed in Bombay again.

It is reported that he was very arrogant, untrustworthy and a cheat of first rate. It seems he was quarrelsome, a liar and short tempered. His experiences,perhaps, taught him a lesson and he decided to change himself and concentrate on work seriously. This did good to him in his life. In Bombay first he worked in Garib ki ladki-40, but the film got delayed and was released in 41 only. Meanwhile he did Rani saheba-40 and Pyar-40 also. This time his career took a good turn. Till film Garib ki ladki-40, he used his name Hashmat for credits, but then he took a new name Prakash thereafter till the end.

A changed actor Prakash became acceptable to the industry and films were on his way. In all Prakash did 5 films as Hashmat and 38 films as Prakash. However, he got only action, stunt and C grade films. Once director W Z Ahmed met him and Prakash went to Shalimar Pictures Poona to do 3 films for them, namely Ek Raat-42, Prem Sangeet-43 and Mann ki Jeet-44. He was also a favourite of Master Bhagwan and appeared in many of his stunt films. The year 1946 proved to be the best year for Prakash, because he did 14 films in 1946.

After Partition he migrated to Pakistan and did few films there. He came back to India and did 3 films in the 60s. His last film was Suhag Raat -68. There is no information about him after that. May be he went back to Pakistan or died, we do not know.

Now enjoy today’s song. It is very melodious. I consider Chitragupta as the King of melodious songs. His song is always a guarantee of melody, a good tune and suitable musical accompaniment. Too sad, he was not recognised for his abilities by the industry and he always remained in the ‘B’ team of composers. Nevertheless, one should learn from him, how to be happy and contented with whatever one gets from Destiny !

“Afsaana” (1966) was a Devi Movietones presentation. It was produced by Dilip Mukherji and directed by Brij Sadanah. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Padmini, Pradeep Kumar, Jagdeep, Helen,Anwar Hussain, Tuntun JeevanKala, Master Khaliq, Jillani, Amrit Rana, Amar,Ted Lyons and His Cubs etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Afsaana” (1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The song is picturised on Padmini who is shows lip syncing this joyous song while driving a car and going through roads that appear quite empty. we are talking of 1966 when Indian roads indeed were empty with very few people owing cars. Even owning two wheelers was considered a sign of luxury and privilege those days.

One may enjoy the picturisation, but one is not advised to handle the steering wheel like Padmini ! She is shown grabbing the steeling wheel with one hand, and she keeps rotating the steering wheel even on straight road. 🙂 If ladies get inspired to drive watching Padmini them most pedestrians will run for cover, that is for sure. 🙂

The car is also shown going through a bridge over a river. This portion of the scene somehow reminded myself of Bogibeel bridge, India’s longest rail cum road bridge over the mighty Brahmputra river that was inaugurated recently (on 25 december 2018). I would dearly love to talk about that bridge in one of my future writeups. For now, let us enjoy this road song from “Afsaana” (1966)

Today 24th December 2018 is the ninety-fourth (24 December 1924 – 31 July 1980) birth anniversary of the ‘divine voice’ Mohammad Rafi Saab.
And today 24th December also happens to be the birth anniversary actor Mahipal (24 December 1919 – 15 May 2005).
I have very deep respect and great admiration for both of them in my heart and it will be until we are associated with Hindi Films and Hindi Film Music.

It was in 2017 that I came to know about the birth anniversary of Mahipal ji and its falling on 24th December (because of this article on BHD by our own Shishir ji) – the same date – we have birth anniversary of Rafi Saab. So, last year I presented a song from the movie ‘Maharaja Vikram-1966’ here.

This year too I wish to present a song and thus was looking a song sung by Rafi Saab and lip synced by Mahipal. I think most of the songs may be have already been covered and I was able to find a ‘duet’ sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and lip synced on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

This song is from the 1957 movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’.

It was directed by Babubhai Mistry for ‘Basant Pictures’. It was presented by Homi Wadia for ‘Wadia Brothers Productions’.

It had S.N. Tripathi, Mahipal, Anita Guha, B.M. Vyas, Krishna Kumari, Ratnamala, Heera Sawant, Indira Bansal, Korega, Amirbai Karnataki, Praveen Paul, Mumtaz, Master Prithvi, Helen, Kanchanmala, Shiela Vaz, Samar Roy, Dalpat, Sudesh, Ramshastri, Bhujbal Singh Uma Dutt, S.K. Singh, Shri Bhagwan, Ajit Kumar, R.S. Dubey, Abdullah, Yadav, Julian and others.

This movie had as many as ten songs composed by Chitragupta and written by G.S. Nepali (Six songs) and Saraswati Kumar Deepak (four songs).

Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, Mohmmad Rafi, Shamshad Begam, Sudha Malhotra and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is written by Gopal Singh Nepali.

Actually, I came across this song as a song from the movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa – 1969’ on YouTube. As I was not aware of the details of this movie, I asked for the movie page from HFGK Vol IV from my daughter. Going through the details as mentioned in HFGK it is mentions that: –
“As per information from the production house ‘Basant Pictures, Bombay’ (1) this film was a collection of some parts of the previous movies produced by them, (2) also including songs from those movies, (3) and this movie ‘Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ was not a full-length feature film.
That made me more curious to know about its songs (if any) presented on the blog and if the today’s song was already there.
From the list I could not found any songs on the blog and keep repeatedly searching for titles with ‘Hanuman Chalisa’… until I find a link on YT which mentions the name of the movie as ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957/ Hanuman Chalisa-1969’ for this song ‘mere Raam kahaan ho tum …’

Three songs from this movie ‘Pawanputra Hanuman-1957’ have already been posted on the blog wherein our two respected Seniors Arun ji and Sadanand ji have shared two and one posts respectively sharing songs of this movie.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song sung by Rafi Saab and Sudha Malhotra and performed on screen by Mahipal and Anita Guha.

Here is the third song from “Bezubaan”(1962) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Picturisation shows Nirupa Roy with Baby Anita, who have been thrown out of home by Ashok Kumar. The kid, too young to realise what is going on, wonders why her father is not with them. Nirupa Roy tries to put the kid to sleep by singing this “story” song which also doubles up as a lullaby.

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm

pyaar bhari thhi duniya unki
sukh se bhara ghar baar

bhool gaya wo pyaar ke naate
dekh ke jhoothi maaya
raaja nikla desh paraaye
laane heere moti
tab se pukaare saanjh sakhaare
raani roti roti
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye

mujhse to tum roothhe sahi
bhoole ho munne ka pyaar kya
mujhse to tum roothhe sahi
bhoole ho munne ka pyaar kya
pahunchi nahin kaanon talak
nanhe si dil ki pukaar kya
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye

kehta hai dil
aaoge tum
sone ki nagri ke paar se
kehta hai dil
aaoge tum
sone ki nagri ke paar se
hoti nahin daulat badi
sacche dilon ke pyaar se
aaja re aaja
pardesi raaja
munna tujhko bulaaye
ro ro ke haari raani bechaari
munne ko neend na aaye
