‘Ghunghroo’ (1952) was produced under the banner of Filmkar, owned by Rajendra Jain which had produced ‘Deedar’ (1951) and later, ‘Maan’ (1954). The film was directed by Hiren Bose. The star cast included Om Prakash, Sumitra Devi, Kuldeep Kaur, K N Singh, Murad, Badri Prasad etc. A feature of the film’s casting was that Om Prakash was the lead actor in a double role – one as a shy man and the other in a role of a lead actor in a theatre.

Om Prakash, who commenced his filmy career in a small role of a villain in his maiden film, ‘Dassi’ (1944) followed by another villain role in ‘Dhamki’ (1945), had worked in lead roles in ‘Aai Bahaar’ (1946), ‘Shahar Se Door’ (1946) and ‘Pagdandi’ (1947). However, all these three films failed at the box office and with this, his dream of becoming a lead actor was shattered. The partition in 1947 further compounded his problems for he had to start afresh his career in Hindi films in Mumbai. After remaining unemployed for a year, Om Prakash accepted whatever roles that were offered to him. In about 2 years from his first film in Mumbai – ‘Lakhpati’ (1948) in post-partition period, Om Prakash had become a busy actor doing various character roles.

Against this background, it must be a pleasant surprise for Om Prakash that after a gap of 5 years, he got not only the lead role but also a double role in ‘Ghunghroo’ (1952). But the film failed so miserably that in no time, it went into the list of obscure films. It appeared that Om Prakash was destined to become a popular actor in his various typles of character actor’s roles some of which became unforgettable like in ‘Pyaar Kiye Jaa’ (1966), ‘Padosan’ (1968), ‘Gopi’ (1970), ‘Chupke Chupke’ (1975) and many more.

Having watched Om Prakash in character roles in many films, I wish, I could have watched him as a hero in ‘Ghunghroo’ (1952). Unfortunately, the film seems to have been lost forever for viewing. A few of the lobby images available on-line featuring Om Prakash with Sumitra Devi and Kuldeep Kaur looked interesting. I have incorporated a couple of them in the video of the song which I propose to present with this write-up.

As with most of the obscure films, I could not find the story and review of ‘Ghunghroo’ (1952) on the internet, After some intense searches, I could get a synopsis of the story from one of many lesser known websites on Hindi films which appers to be copied from the film’s song-synopsis booklet because it was written in typical synopsis style language without revealing the ending of the film. From what I could gather from the synopsis, I present the gist of the story as under:

Vinod (Om Prakash) is a shy person who lives in Pune. He is in love with Hema (Sumitra Devi) but does not have enough courage to disclose to her. When he comes to know that Hema also loves him he is the happiest person.

Vinod has a twin brother, Baalam (Om Prakash) who works for a theatre in Mumbai as a lead actor. He often pairs with Kamini (Kuldip Kaur) and their pair is very popular thus making them a box office attraction. Baalam gets attracted towards Kamini and she exploits this by her false love to him to keep her popularity intact at the box office. In this way, she earns fortunes by way of gifts from royal and aristocratic visitors to the theatre.

Kamini’s exploitation game is exposed to Baalam. After a quarrel, she gets Baalam killed with the help of her accomplice, Hiralal (K N Singh). The ghost of Ballam cames out and starts taking revenge on his enemies. Baalam’s ghost also appears in Vinod’s house and enters Vinod’s body. Vinod suddenly becomes Baalam Baalam’s ghosht takes Vinod to Mumbai as Baalam. Hema followes him to Mumbai. Now starts the vicious circle of chase. Heart-broken Hema ran after Vinod who, in turn, runs for his life from Baalam. Baalam runs after Kamini for his revenge. Vinod turned Baalam is dragged by Hiralal and his goons. Thus, all of them find inyolved in a chain resulting in ‘comedy of errors’.

I have no idea as to how the film ends in reality. But in such a type of the story, the villains, K N Singh and Kuldip Kaur would be exposed and arrested with Om Prakash and Sumitra Devi united.

‘Ghunghroo’ (1952) had 9 songs, all written by Rajendra Krishan which were set to music by C Ramchandra. All the 9 songs are available which I have heard and find them melodious with typical brand of C Ramchandra’s compositions.

I am presenting the 5th song from the film, ‘dil kisi ko deejiye dil kisi kaa leejiye’ sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali, Mohmmed Rafi and chorus. The song appears to be a part of the stage show in the film.

While discussing interesting songs from the decade of the 50s, one can not keep away from C Ramchandra’s films. In the early 1950s, Chitalkar was in great demand and his films were becoming popular because of his songs. Of course, there were films like Jhanjhar-53 and Ghungroo-52, which did not become hits in spite of good songs.

For the last eight months or so, I have been scouting for some rare songs which are yet to be posted on the Blog. My first preference was to get those rare songs which have not yet made their presence in YT. During my search, I concentrated mainly of the songs of 1940s and about 50 of such songs have already made their appearances in the Blog. There are some more in my kitty of the 1940s segment, a few of which have already been uploaded on YT. But I thought I would take some pause for the 1940s and divert my attention to the rare songs of the 1950s.
For the 1950s songs, my initial experience showed that in respect of well-known playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Talat Mehmood, Kishore Kumar, Suraiya, Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur etc, there was no need for me to find their rare songs. Almost all of their songs for which mp3 clips are available on the internet, have already been uploaded on YT. I believe that all these playback singers have their fans in YT who would ensure that almost all the songs of their idols get posted on YT. That leaves me room to search for rare songs of only the second string and other lesser known playback singers for the 1950s segment. And I like to explore songs of such category of playback singers.

In the golden era of 1950s and 60s of the Hindi film songs, Lata Mangeshkar had sung quite a large number of songs composed by almost all the renowned music directors ( of course with the exception of O P Nayyar) of that time. Many of her songs of that era are still popular. However, there were some songs she sang under the batons of C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan which were, in my view, a class by themselves. Unfortunately, some of these classy songs were from films which flopped miserably and soon they went into oblivion. With them songs from such films were almost ‘buried’ under the ‘debris’ of the new songs over a period of time like that of Harppan and Mohenjodaro civilisation.
