‘Chunariya’ (1948) was produced under the banner of Kuldeep Pictures of Lahore-based Kuldeep Sehgal which was his first film in Mumbai after partition. The film was directed by Ravindra Dave. The story, dialogues, screen-play and lyrics were written by Mulk Raj Bhakri. The production controller was his brother, Lekh Raj Bhakri. The star cast included Manorama and Wasti in the lead role with Randhir, Pran, Sophia, Cuckoo, Narbada Shankar, Mehdi Raza, Chand Burque, Baij Sharma etc in subsidiary roles.

It is interesting to note as to how the box office success of ‘Chunariya’ (1948) helped the career revival of some of the displaced persons from the Lahore film industry. Most of them had shifted to Mumbai after partition in 1947 almost penniless. Although the film was produced by Kuldeep Sehgal, according to character actor Janaki Das, it was Mulk Raj Bhakri along with his brother, Lekh Raj Bhakri who organized the actors and the crew, mostly among the displaced from Lahore film industry. Later, both Bhakri brothers floated their own film production companies and became producers/director.

The film’s director, Ravindra Dave was also a displaced person from Lahore film industry who came to Mumbai along with his brother Ramnarayan Dave and their maternal uncle, Dalsukh Pancholi. ‘Chunariya’ (1948) was his first directorial film in Mumbai. Ravindra Dave also floated his own film production company and became the producer-director of Hindi and Gujarati films. The acting career of Manorama and Pran, both from Lahore, took off in Mumbai from the success of ‘Chunariya’ (1948).

Music Director, Hansraj Bahl who started his career as the music director in Mumbai with ‘Pujaari’ (1946), was on the downhill after the continuous failures of about half-a-dozen films. He bounced back with good compositions of the songs for ‘Chunariya’ (1948) some of which became popular. Although, Geeta Dutt was the main female playback singer for the film, it was Lata Mangeshkar’ song, dil-e-naashaad ko jeene ki hasrat ho gayi tumse which became very popular. Similary, Mohammed Rafi’s song, sab kuchh lutaaya hamne aakar teri gali mein also became very popular.

‘Chunariya’ (1948) has the distinction of becoming a film in which Asha Bhosle sang her first song in Hindi film, ‘saawan aaya re saawan aaya jaage more bhaag’ along with Geeta Dutt and Zohrabai Ambalewaali in this film. However, according to Raju Bharatan who wrote Asha Bhosle’s musical biography, Asha Bhosle sang her first Hindi film song, ‘gareebon ke data gareebon ke waali’ in ‘Andhon Ki Duniya (1947) along with Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Unfortunately, as of now, both the songs are not available on any of the video sharing platforms. There may be some story as to why many on-line articles on Asha Bhosle consider the song in ‘Chunariya’ (1948) being her first Hindi film song rather than her song from ‘Andhon Ki Duniya’ (1947).

‘Chunariya’ (1948) had 10 songs – all written by Mulk Raj Bhakri of which 8 songs have already been covered on the Blog. The remaining two songs were not available on video sharing platforms for quite some time. Very recently, I am able to get mp3 clip of one of the two ‘missing’ songs which I have uploaded on a video sharing platform.

I am presenting the 9th song, ‘daaman se bandh gayi choli re, meri sakhi paraayi ho li re’ which is rendered by Geeta Dutt and chorus. From the wordings of the lyrics, it is apparent that it is a ‘Bidaai Song’ sung by bride’s friends.

Six songs from six different movies in a day ! So that was a normal day for the blog. Right ! Not really. This day ten years ago was a special day not only for me but for many millions others. It was a day when India vs Sri Lanka world cup cricket final was being played at Mumbai. Exactly ten years have passed. But the memories of that day and also memories of the days preceding the final are still fresh in my mind.

The final post of the blog was posted at 12:31 PM and then I began to follow the final on TV, which was a day night match.

That tournament was emotionally quite a draining experience for me, and for millions of other cricket lovers as well.

The emotional toll on the Indian cricket lovers began not in 2011 but from the previous world cup of 2007. In that world cup, an overconfident and complacent Indian team lost to Bangladesh in their inaugural match. That loss saw them bow out of the world cup at the group stage itself. A most humiliating and inglorious world cup exit it was.

Heads rightly rolled after that.

A few months later, another world cup of a new kind called T20 world cup was organised. BCCI, smarting from the ODI world cup fiasco, did not want to participate, but ICC arm twisted them into participating in it. BCCI responded by sending a team shorn of stars. It was led by a freshly anointed captain in Dhoni. All big names (Tendulkar. Dravid, Ganguly, Kumble, Zaheer Khan) were missing from the team. Names like Gambhir, Rohit Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Joginder Sharma, R P Singh were included. This reluctantly sent team, against all odds, went on to lift the T20 world cup title ! And the erstwhile reluctant BCCI suddenly turned T20 enthusiast. They soon devised a T20 tournament called IPL and showed ECB how to market T20 and rake in unimaginable amount of money while at it.

Enthused by the success of India in 2007 T20 world cup, BCCI bid to host ODI world cup in India and neighbouring countries and succeeded in the bid. It was similar to BCCI bid in 1987, after their team’s unexpected win in the 1983 world cup.

2007 ODI World cup saw India (and also Pakistan) getting eliminated in the grouop stages itself. Indian elimination after just three matches meant that many Indian fans (who constitute the biggest cricket following group in the world) lost interest in the world cup after Indian elimination. Espn star sports, that had won the TV rights to telecast this world cup may have lost heavily due to this. So the format of 2011 was changed. Now there were two groups of 7 teams each. Top four finishers of each group qualified for the quarterfinals. This format (similar of the format of 1996 world cup) ensured that good teams would not get eliminated because of one bad day in the tournament. Each team would play six matches in group stage. A team could qualify even if they finished fourth in the group after losing two matches. So, teams like India and Pakistan would not get eliminated after one bad match. Similarly teams like Bangladesh and Ireland (that had one good day against India and Pakistan respectively), will not qualify after just one fluke win.

And that is exactly how it happened. India qualified by finishing second in the group whereas Pakistan qualified after topping their group. Bangladesh this time were soundly thrashed not only by India, but also by South Africa and West Indies. They did score one lucky win against England, but that solitary win failed to ensure their qualification.

Qualifying for the knockout was easy this time for India, but if they wanted to advance deep into the knockout stage then they needed to finish at the top. While India won against every other team, and they were very well placed against South Africa at 267/1, Indian batting collapsed inexplicably and they were bowled out for 296, losing 9 wickets for 29 runs and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. This result made them finish second in the group. Reward- they were pitted against defending champions Australia in the quarterfinals, who were world champions for three world cups in a row. Fortunately, Indians showed nerves to steel and went on to defeat Australia in the semi final. Their “reward”- a semi final meeting against Pakistan- a team that had no weak link in bowling. In this semi final, Indian batting struggled throughout. Tendulkar top scored with 85 after half a dozen reprieves through dropped catches, DRS review overturned an onfield out decision etc. Thanks to some valuable runs by Raina towards the end, India reached 260, their lowest total in the tournament. In the prevous match, India had chased 260 against Australia, and thewre was no reason why Pakistan could not do the same. Thankfully, Pakistan kept losing wixckets at crucial moments, just when it looked that they had things in control, and India sneaked through by 29 runs.

Final was against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka were a side that had players eminently suited for this world cup conditions. They had some batsmen who could remorselessly pile on the runs and they had spinners who controlled the middle overs and choked runs. Sri Lanka had lost only one match, and that was against Pakistan, their nemesis team in world cups. Otherwise they were unbeaten. Their match against Australia was washed out. They defeated other opponents with ease. In the quarter final, they restricted England score and chased that with ease. They did the same against New Zealand in the semi final.

In the final, Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first. They piled on a big total of 274/6. Mahela Jaywardane, as was his wont, scored an unbeaten century.

When India began their chase, Sehwag was out for a second ball duck. India 0 for 1. Six overs later, Tendulkar too fell. India 31 for 2 and in deep trouble. Memories of world cup final 2003 chase began to haunt Indian fans, when India were 59 for three and were never in the game after that. With my experience, I had learnt the lesson that Tendulkar and Sehwag would perform in group matches, but not in the final. So both of them letting the side down in the big final was par for the course.

Fortunately, this team had Gautam Gambhir, who would perform in the final. He had performed in the World T20 Final in 2007 which India had won. Here too, he, in the company of rising star Virat Kohli began to repair the damage. The two took the score to 114, when Kohli fell. Target was 161 runs away, and India had to score at an asking rate of 5.7 for more than 28 overs. The Sri Lankan attack had not allowed any team other than Pakistan to score so many runs in this tournament. The next batsman scheduled to come in was Yuvraj. He had a great world cup with bat and ball, but he had fallen for a first ball duck in the semi final. And here, against Muralitharan, he would have been like a cat on the hot tin roof. As Kohli departed, fans were greeted by the sight of not Yuvraj, but Dhoni emerging out of the pavilion.

Gambhir and Dhoni saw off the threats of Muralitharan and co. The Sri Lankan modus operandi in this world cup was to harvest loads of wickets in the middle overs and cripple the opposition batting line up, which would then collapse to a total smaller than 230. Only Pakistan (batting first) had scored 277 against them. Sri Lanka had restricted England to 229 in the quarterfinal, New Zealand to 217 (in semi final) and 153 (in group match). Zimbabwe scored 188, Kenya 142, and Canada 122 against sri Lanka. So with the exception of Pakistan (batting first) no other team had succeeded in handling Sri Lankan bowling attack in the tournament.

Gambhir and Dhoni dented the Sri Lankan bowling attack. India were 223 when Gambhir had a momentary brain fade and he was out bowled for 97, when he was so close to a well deserved century. Only 41 runs were needed in 8.4 overs. Only seven more overs were needed to reach the winning total. Dhoni sealed the match with a well chronicled six.

That win now meant that India had won the ODI world cup in this century itself and we were no longer confined to reminisce and gloat about the title win in the past century. So someone like Ashish Nehra too joined the ranks of 1983 “pundit” like Madanlal as someone who is much in demand as TV cricket expert thanks to that world cup title victory in 1983. 🙂

Present generation cricket lovers can now honestly say that they were around when India won the ODI world cup. 🙂 People like us are of course luckier. We saw Indian world cup win in 1983 too. 🙂

On that day ten years ago, one song of “Pujaari”(1946) was covered in the blog. “Pujaari”(1946) was directed by Aspi for Ardeshir M Irani Productions, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Masood, Bipin Gupta,Mustafa,P.D.Lal, Yashwant Dave, Anita Sharma, Tasneem, Baby Mumtaz Aka Madhubala etc in it. This movie had ten songs in it and four songs have been covered so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is another song from “Pujaari”(1946) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Feroz Dastoor. ali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

This post appears late at night. At this time ten years ago, entire India had burst into wild celebrations just as Dhoni hit the winning six and then the team as performing a victory lap around the Wankhede stadium.

Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (03)
———————————–

My comment on the 900th song post of Geeta Dutt’s songs :

Congratulations on completing 900 songs of Geeta Dutt. Out of the 500 plus songs that remain to covered in the blog, there are many which sound so beautiful. I have made a short list of her duets and solos yet to be posted and it is difficult to decide on one. In fact I wrote down the lyrics of two such song over the weekend.

Like Husnlal-Bhagatram’s songs, I find it difficult to move past an unheard song by Geeta Dutt. Somehow she captivates the listener on first hearing. A truly gifted and versatile artist.

About the diction and singing the words correctly, also she is almost perfect. A case in point is this two version -Geeta and one small Rafi version ‘Lori’ :

https://atulsongaday.me/2020/03/11/so-jaa-re-so-jaa-mere-laal/

This series is about solos and duets of Geeta Dutt, so here is a wonderous soulful solo. If somebody could sound somewhere in between sad and happy, Geeta Dutt would be it. She sounds spirited too at the same time. The moment I heard it for the first time, I wanted to write a post for it.

I have been listening to the song of the previous post too, and keep wondering how that one remained unknown all these decades. While the Talat Mehmood solo from ‘Chhaya’ 1961, having the same tune is a very well-known song.

And now I am thinking, if the tune of this solo also is sounding more familiar than it should. I am not able to pin point if there is another song with similar beat, especially the‘gaaye jaa aa, kuchh gaaye jaa’ bit.

In my previous post I had billed the duets of Geeta dutt with various singers among the posted songs, at below 350. But they would be more than 350. This blog has 521 solos by her posted.

The first solo in this series is the 7th song from the 1949 film “Karwat”. The music director is Hansraj Behl and lyricist is Saifuddin Saif. Present tally of these two in the blog:

Artist Songs posted Total songs
Hansraj Behl 260 62 movies(538)
Saifuddin Saif 1

So, this one is only the second song penned by Saifuddin Saif in the blog. His first song is also from the same movie, so this Poet/lyricist could be a one movie wonder.

Six songs of Karwat(1949) are already posted in the blog:

Song Date posted
Chanda baadal mein baadal mein mukh le chhipa 2 November 2012
Nigaahen milaane milaane ko jee chaahta hai Multiple version song 29 November 2013
Tod ghulaami ki zanjeeren jaage hain insaan 15 August 205
Ek rog laga baithhi main 17 July 2016
Chal diye munh pher kar 28 November 2017

This song is significant for it must have set the tone for the famous club, cabaret, mischievous and teasing songs to come, composed by Music Directors like O P Nayyar and S D Burman and sung by Geeta Dutt. This song too is a gem of a discovery.


Song-Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar saaz uthha le(Karwat)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Saifuddin Saif, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Gaa ae dil matwaale jhoom kar
saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa
raaten badi anokhi
yeh din bahot niraale
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

kyun chaand chakor se door
ghataa mein phire akelaa aa
yeh mast jawaani
koyi din ka melaa
aa kisi se aankh milaa le
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

yeh mast hawaayen kehti hain
milne ki kahaani ee ee
rut beet na jaaye
pyaasi hai jawaani
ik duniyaa nayi basaa le
jhoom kar saaz utthaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

mehek mehek kar
kali kali ko
phool pukaare ae ae
mastaana hawaa mein
hanste hain sitaare
ab dil ko kaun sambhaale
jhoom kar saaz uthhaa le
gaaye jaa aa aa aa
kuchh gaaye jaa

Today’s song is from the film Dost-54. There were films made with this title in 1944, 1954,1974,1989 and 1990. There were 17 films with the word Dost in their titles. Film Dost had 7 songs. 6 songs are already discussed here, but one song was not available for a long time. Now that is available and today’s song will qualify the film to become YIPPEED !

This is a Male-Male duet, sung by S.Balbir and S.Kapoor. Balbir is a known singer, but I do not know anything about this S Kapoor. He also acted in this film. The cast of the film was Usha Kiran, Suresh, Majnu, Randhir, Uma Dutt, Kammo, Mohana, S Kapoor, S Nazir and others. Actually actor Om prakash is also acting in this film. The film poster shows his name as well as photo. However, HFGK does not show his name in the cast. Such instances are not uncommon. Even in the film “1857” of 1946, the hero was Surendra, but his name was missing from the cast. Surendra had also sung one solo and one duet in the film.

Of course, the task of compiling HFGK was a mammoth one, so such small errors were seen sometimes. I find that only the HFGK volume II covering the 40’s decade has such instances and also in this volume, the cast names of films are few, giving a feeling that it is an incomplete cast detail. In all other volumes the cast is given almost fully. But these matters are understandable. The 40’s decade was a highly disturbed one. What with the second world war, independence, migration of artistes and the Partition. No wonder, material from this decade must have been difficult to gather.

Majnu was one of the actors in the cast. Majnu was not his real name. His real name was Harold Lewis-a Punjabi Christian. He was a close friend of producer Director Roop K Shorey. Shorey made a film “Majnu-1935″ and Harold was the Hero. The film was a Parody of the Laila – Majnu story. There were many fighting scenes in it and in one scene, Majnu is tied up to Railway Tracks. This film became very popular and the people started calling him majnu. He too liked it and continued with this name for life. In Hindi films, this is the only case where the actor is permanently named after his first role.

In the South film industry, I know of at least two Prominent actors, who were named forever, based on their first role or the company they worked for. First was actor Villupuram Chinnaiah Manrayar Ganesamoorthy, who started his career by acting in stage dramas. His first drama ” Shivaji kanda Hindu Rajyam”, featuring him in the role of Shivaji, became a Hit and so popular that the great social reformer E V Ramsamy conferred on him the name ” Sivaji “. He became SIVAJI GANESAN.

The second case was that of actor Ganapati Subramanian Sarma. He was a graduate in those early days of cinema. He joined Gemini Studiosas a Production Executive and from here he did a small role in Gemini’s film ” Miss Malini”-1947. Since there was already another ganesan in south films, this actor was called GEMINI GANESAN, as he was working in Gemini’s film.

Coming back to Majnu – MAJNU-Harold Lewis was a Punjabi Christian. He was born on 2-11-1913. He was the childhood friend of Roop K.Shorey. When Shorey wanted to make his second film,he chose Harold as a Hero.The film was MAJNU-1935,which was a satirical spoof on the old Laila-Majnu story.There were many stunts and in one scene Majnu is tied up on railway track by the villain.The film became a hit and Harold was renamed MANJU for his film career.

He appeared in almost all of Shorey’s films.He was also doing films with other producers.In 1942 he did a double role in Nishani and in 1943 he directed his first film Paapi. Shorey also gave him a film Badnami-1946 for direction and it was here that Majnu met I.S.Johar who wrote the story and Dialogues of Badnami.

Majnu paired with I.S.Johar in EK THI LADKI-1949,the debut film of Johar. Later they made a comedy pair in 10 films, including the hit film HUM SAB CHOR HAIN-1956. His last film with Johar was Akalmand-66.

Majnu acted in 77 films. His first film was Majnu-35 and his much delayed and released last film was Shri Krishna Bhakti-73.
Majnu directed 8 films including,Paapi-43, Badnami-46, Son of Alibaba-55, Tatar ka chor-55, Malika-56, Basre ki Hoor-56, Baghi sardar-56, and his last film – Chandu-58.

Harold Lewis aka Majnu died on 26-3-1974.

The music director of the film Dost-54 was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj Behl, in my opinion,is 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 is 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 Phulwaari 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 Aazadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Aazadi 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 Rajdhani (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-Azam in 1965.

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

With today’s song, all the eight songs of the film Dost-54 get covered and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog

Lyrics

Hum phiren kanwaare Rab ji

koi na poochhe paani kisi ko
beshaq mare pyaasa
o rab jee beshaq mare pyaasa
isi liye main dikhe hain
lemon sode saare
qurbaan tumhaare
rab jee

sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
sare aam phirte hain yahaan par
mard aurat ke jode
dekh ke in jodon ko

o neeli chhatri waale
ab bigad gayi sab baat

tu meri laaj bachaa le
ya to ik se do kar de

kuchh soch le mere baare
kuchh soch le mere baare
sun jag ke ke pyaare

ham phiren kanwaare
is duniya mein bhookhe nange
jiyen kare sahaare
kya karen bechaare

ik arz meri maan lo daftar ko jaana hai
mangal ka din hai aaj koi itwaar nahin hai

These two lines in the song “kyun garm sard hote ho takraar nahin hai” from ‘Chokori’ (1949) sung by Mohammed Rafi has made me to present this song which was not available on-line until SAREGAMA uploaded the audio clip of this rare song on one of the video sharing platforms in early 2019.

‘Chakori’ (1949) was the first film of Ravindra Dave as a producer which he produced under the banner of Ramesh Pictures. The film was directed by his younger brother, Ram Narayan Dave. The star cast included Nalini Jaywant, Bharat Bhushan, Manorama, Om Prakash, Randhir, Narbada Shankar, Uma Dutt, Cuckoo etc. The story, screen-play, dialogues and songs were written by Mulkraj Bhakri.

Ravindra Dave was the son of Karachi-based Seth Ratilal Dave who had a flourishing business of film distribution for North Indian territories under the name, Empire Talkie Distributors. This was the first film distribution company which undertook to distribute India’s first talkie ‘Alam Ara’ (1931) in Northern India. He joined his father’s film distribution company and helped his father in procuring distributions rights of films produced in Mumbai.

Dalsukh Pancholi was the uncle of Ravindra Dave who was already in film production and the owner of Pancholi Studio in Lahore. Ravindra Dave became the Production Manager in Pancholi Films. He got his first assignment as a director in Pancholi’s ‘Poonji’ (1943) along with Vishnu Pancholi. With his talent firmly established in film making, Pancholi gave him the assignment of writing the script for ‘Dhamki’ (1943) and directing it.

When Ravindra Dave was directing Pancholi’s next film, ‘Patjhad’ (1948), the partition happened and the communal riots that broke out in Lahore made him and Pancholis to come to Bombay with the completed reels of the film which was later released in 1948 after completion of the film in Mumbai. For both Pancholis and Ravindra Dave, it was like starting their filmy career afresh. Ravindra Dave directed about 30 Hindi films during 1943-69. Later, he shifted to Gujarati films producing and directing around 20 films until 1985.

Mulkhraj Bhakri, the story, screen-play, dialogue and song writer of ‘Chakori’ (1949) was born in Gujranwala in Punjab (now in Pakistan). His father, Moolchand Bhakri was the store-keeper in Indian Army Service Corps (IASC) at Pathankot. He went to school in Lyallpur (now Faisalabad in Pakistan). After completion of his Matriculation examination in 1931, he was keen to join the film industry.

Mulkraj Bhakri started his career as Cinema Manager. It took him a long time to get his first break in the film ‘Arsi’ (1947) as story and dialogue writer. After the success of the film, Mukraj Bhakri got two films – ‘Barsaat Ki Ek Raat’ (1948) and ‘Papiha Re’ (1948) for which he wrote story, dialogues, screen play and lyrics. Both these films were being produced in Lahore studios. Unfortunately, both the films became the victims of partition and were temporarily abandoned. These films were later released in some parts of India.

Mukraj Bhakri came to Bombay (Mumbai) after the partition along with his brothers, Lekhraj Bhakri, Deshraj Bhakri and Rajkumar Bhakri who were all associated with Hindi films. Mulkraj Bhakri became the rallying point for displaced film artists and technicians from Lahore. Bhakri who was the ‘de facto’ producer of the film ‘Chunariya’ (1948) gave Ravindra Dave his first assignment in post-partition India to direct the film. Next, Ravindra Dave got Prakash Pictures’ ‘Saawan Baadhon’ (1949) to direct. He also directed his uncle Pancholi’s first film in post-independent India – ‘Meena Baazar’ (1950).

Note: The profiles of Ravindra Dave and Mulkraj Bhakri up to 1949 are based on articles written by character actor, Janki Dass in film magazine ‘Sound’ – May 1949 and July 1949 issues, respectively.

So far, 7 songs (out of 11 songs) of ‘Chakori’ (1949) have been covered in the Blog. The song under presentation is the 8th song from the film to appear on the Blog. Song is written by Mulkraj Bhakri which is set to music by Hansraj Bahl.

In Hindi film songs, I had not come across the Urdu word ‘dehleez’ (threshold; may be चौखट in Hindi) until Gulzar saab used it in mudke na dekho dilbaro in ‘Raazi’ (2018). I was pleasantly surprised to note that Mulkraj Bhkari had used the word ‘dahleez’ in the song under presentation as early as 1949. Interestingly, Gulzar saab has also used the Hindi equivalent word ‘Chaukhat’ in the song, chhod aaye ham wo galiyaan in the film ‘Maachis’ (1996).

Enjoy the ‘wooing and pleading with the beloved’ song.

mera ladka M A
iski keemat jo bhi bole
baarah man wo chaandi laaye
sona teen sau tole
satrah jode do sau suit
bahan ki saadi bhai ka boot
ghadi sasur ki saas ka joda
do motor ek baggi ghoda
palang radio aur kaaleen
rang birange sofe teen
ye sab do
ye sab do to kar sakta hoon main kuchh soch vichaar
hai aisi shaadi pe dhikkaar
dhikkaar
dhikkaar

dulha bikta beech bazar
ye hai shadi ya vyopar
beche pagdi to baabul laaye beti ka singaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shaadi ya vyopar

mera ladka anpadh phir bhi keemat poora laakh
laakh to den par kahaan seth ji dulhe ki ??
arre ek haath ka hai ek laakh
do ka leta main do laakh
kyun ladke ki itni fees
hai ye khaandaani raees
chaar sau beeghe hai jaageer
khulegi ladki ki taqdeer
aisa var
aisa var
aisa var na milega chaahe dhoondho sab sansaar
hoye aisi shaadi pe dhikkaar dhikkaar dhikkaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shaadi ya vyopaar
beche pagdi to baabul laaye beti ka singaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shaadi ya vyopaar

kab tak dukhiya baabul apni kanya rakhe kanwaari
roz ye paudha chadhta jaaye
badhe ye jimmewaari
aaj khuda ban baithe hain ye beton ka vyopaari
kya ho sab ghar bar bike bik jaye kapde tan ke
laaunga jo bhi maagoge bete waalon bhihkaari banke
main bhikhaari banke
main bhikhaari banke
main bhikhaari banke ae

motor bangla chaandi sona
haan haan haanji aur kaho na
nakdi laakh nahin to n
sab manzoor hai kahdo haan
acchha to ha,
haan
haan
ja ri ja ri dulhaniya pyaari
tere baabul ne waari tujhpe duniya saari

ja ri ja ri dulhaniya pyaari
(aa aa aa aa aa)
tere baabul ne waari tujhpe duniya saari

hamen bulaa ke ghar pe tumne diya ye dhokha kaisa
laalach buri bala hai
milta hai jaise ko taisa
abhi saza ye kam hi mili hai
bhaago yahaan se laala
warna pakad se pitwaayenge
hum munh karke kaala
upar se daalenge gale mein hum jooton ka haar

rrr
yoon na karna
isse achcha hai marna
kya tumko daulat pyaari
na na ji izzat pyaari
to paaon pe rakh do pagdi
maangoon ne ek bhi damdi
to karlo aaj se tauba
mere to baap ki tauba
kya maan li tumne haar
haan chhoda ji chhoda ye beton ka vyopaar
aisi shaadi pe dhikkaar dhikkaar dhikkaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shadi ya vyopaar
beche pagdi to baabul laaye beti ka singaar
dulha bikta beech bazaar
ye hai shaadi ya vyopaar

“Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”(1960) was directed by Ramesh Tiwari for N C Films, Bombay. This “Social” movie had Bharat Bhushan, Anita Guha, Jeewan, Tiwari, Prem Chopra (debut), Krishnakumari, Bela, Kammo, Helen, Naaz, Mishra, Anwari Bai, Narbada Shankar, Rajinder Kathana, Ratan Gaurang, Nemo, Prakash, Robert etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

Today (20 may 2020) is the remembrance day of Hansraj Behl (19 November 1916 – 20 May 1984). As a tribute to him, here is another song from “Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh”(1960). This song is sung by Rafi and Shamshad Begam. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

It is a very old and conservative kind of romantic song where the two spouses want to be together but they need to make sure that other family members do not take notice.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
