“Chamkee”(1952) was produced by Maganlal G Desai and directed by J K Nanda for National Film Circuit, Bombay. This movie had Raagini (Sr), Shekhar, Roopmala, Ulhas, Murad, Meera Mishra, Cuckoo, Jeewan, Nana Palsikar, Mumtaz, Uma Dutt, Khairaati, Brij Sarah, Iqbal, Pannu etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Six songs from the movie have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from “Chamkee”(1952) to appear in the blog. this song is sung by Lata and chorus. One male voice is also heard in the song who could be Manna Dey himself. But HFGK credits this song as a Lata solo and I have gone with that.

The song is penned by Kavi Pradeep. Music is composed by Manna Dey.

Only the audio of this song is available. This rare song is a rather “different” kind of song full of “anokhe bol”. The singer and the lyricist are not normally associated with such light hearted kind of songs. 🙂

This song sounds like one that would be picturised on Cuckkoo, who figures in the cast. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Here is the first song from “Kisaan Aur Bhagwaan”(1974) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishor Kumar. Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. music is composed by Prem Dhawan.

The song is picturised on Yogita Bali and Feroz Khan. I am told that Hero and heroines those days used to run around trees while singing love duets. Finally I have seen the picturisation of a song where this is actually happening. 🙂

With this song, “Kisaan Aur Bhagwaan”(1974) makes its debut in the blog.

Blog Day : 3490 Post No. : 14022

First of all, I have to express my gratitude to this blog once again, it is only because of this blog that am able to share this post here. Though I have already shared many posts earlier, but today the personality I am writing about is of such a great stature that it is my fortune and blessings of this blog that I am able to do this.

Today we remember Ramchandra Narayandutt Dwivedi whom we fondly admire and respect as ‘Kavi Pradeep’ or ‘Rashtra Kavi Pradeep’ on the anniversary of his birth. He was born on 6th February,1915 and passed away on 11th December,1998 leaving behind a great legacy or even I can say a ‘heritage’ – a national heritage of his immortal poems and his ‘voice’.

I am short of words to add an adjective to describe his ‘voice’, because it cannot be expressed in words. It is an altogether a very different experience or rather divine experience to listen the songs sung by him. For that matter I think people like me who were born in end sixties and seventies or may be little later and even extending to the eighties, must have in their childhood heard his voice/songs playing on loud speakers, radio and in the earlier years of TV in India.

I cannot forget “Aao Bachcho Tumhein Dikhaayein“, and “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“, one penned and sung by him and other penned by him, which were/are a ‘must’ on every Independence Day and Republic Day. And how rightly he said the value of ‘our hard fought freedom’ when he is talking to the new generation in this song “Hum Laaye Hain Toofaan Se Kishti Nikaal Ke’.

Then there are few songs which we used to listen when we grow up but can only understand their depth after we actually matured as adults. These are the philosophical song like “Dekh Tere Sansaar Ki Haalat“,  “Mukhda Dekh Le Praani“, “Pinjre Ke Panchhi Re“, “Doosron Ka Dukhdaa Door Karne Waale“, “Kabhi Dhoop Kabhi Chhaaon“, “Hum Ne Jag Ki Ajab Tasweer Dekhi“, “Koi Laakh Kare Chaturaayi“. Listening to these and songs sung by him have always given me a great motivation and inspiration other than giving peace to mind whenever I have felt like down with spirits or depressed and struggling with our day to day adversities.

He always wrote and sung with passion, pouring his heart and his feelings into his creations, and thus his songs whether patriotic, devotional or philosophical, when we listen to them, always take us to an altogether different ‘planet’ that is the magic of his words and his voice.

Like the song “Tere Dwaar Khadaa Bhagwaan“, I have never felt tired of listening to this song. I can listen to it many many times in one go. Then his song on the partition of India – “Aaj Ke Insaan Ko Ye Kya Ho Gaya“; one can just imagine the agony in his feelings and the ‘pain’ this ‘poet’ is going through on the degrading human values.

I would like to share here an incident which proves that if one gets a chance to listen to his songs they straight way take to one’s heart and mind forever and even the new generation cannot escape from his ‘passionate’ and ‘inspirational’ voice if they get that right atmosphere around where his songs are listened to. I was at Kota, in Rajasthan at that time in 1988-89. I had bought this compilation of Kavi Pradeep’s songs released by HMV. I presented this to one of my Senior Colleagues who was from Paudi Garhwal. He had a son and a daughter who was around 4-5 years old at that time.

After a gap of around 6-7 years when I was on tour to New Delhi I got a chance to visit this senior of mine and stay with them. As we were discussing his daughter came to me and said ‘Uncle, aap wahi Uncle ho na jinhone hamen Kavi Pradeep ji ki cassette di thi’.

What I want to put here is that if we the citizens of this country nurture good values, of course including the great heritage of our history, arts and culture, and pass them on to new generations, it will be certainly of a great help to instil in them the love for the nation and respect towards the great freedom fighters, soldiers of this country, the country – the land itself and our historical and cultural values.

Hindi movies already are doing great job in the service of nation and national integration. And Kavi Pradeep’s contribution in this cause is simply great and his poetry and songs need to be continuously passed on to the new generation to rouse patriotic values and love for the nation and its great historical heritage.

On this blog we always have this opportunity to share the works of such great persons and their art which they use as a ‘medium’ to reach people and in service of the ‘greater cause’ – ‘the nation’. And we have a long long way to go in this purpose of sharing his poetry /songs that he wrote for Hindi Movies. As per the ‘statistics’ page of this blog, we have till now posted only 167 (I hope this is the latest updated figures) out of the 531 songs he wrote for HFM.

Today I am sharing one of his songs which is written and sung by himself. This song, when I initially sent almost three years ago to Atul ji, I thought was a non-filmy song. As the link available then didn’t mention anything about this song. However, thanks to this book ‘Kavi Pradeep Ka Hindi Sahitya Mein Avdaan’ by Dr. Dinesh Chandra Awasthi which I got few months back and came to know that this song is actually from a ‘recent’ 1983 movie ‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ and not from a yesteryears movie or an NFS.

I like this song very much and it is ‘philosophical’ background song in the movie (as can be seen from the video of this song available now) and in the picturization of this song we can see Vikram Gokhale, Bina and others.

‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ was directed by BR Ishara for ‘King Movies’. It was produced by Badriprasad Joshi. It had Vikram Gokhale, Beena, Mahipal, BM Vyas, Surya Kumar, Anant Marathe, Maheshwari, Master Vikas, Mohan Choti, Meghna, Ratna Bhushan, Nayna Bhatt, Champshi Bhai, Ashalata, Bhagwan, Tun Tun, S Madan, Surekha Rane, Karunakar Pathak, Baiju Raja, Nanak Singh, Lakhan, Amit, Mishrilal, Hangama, Jaya Kaushalya, and Mahesh Desai.

The songs in this movie were sung by Kavi Pradeep, Mahendra Kapoor, Usha Khanna, Suresh Wadkar, Chandrani Mukerjee and Dilraj Kaur. The records were released by ‘Music India’. Sujit Sen and Subramaniam were Assistant Directors for this movie. SA Kadar was the Chief Assistant Director. Dahya Bhai was the Cameraman for this movie. The editing for this movie was done by LD Bhatia. Story of this movie was written by Pandit R Priyadarshi. Kavi Pradeep wrote the songs for this movie and music was composed by Usha Khanna.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 11.01.1983.

I have to confess here that I wished to write a detailed biographical write up (though I am not good in doing it like our senior members and other members) on Kavi Pradeep. I had actually started with it, but could not devote the time required, and so I am presenting a much briefer article about him. But that does not deprive us in enjoying this wonderful creation in his loving memory in our hearts. I will try to write his biographical sketch with more information about the movies he worked for in another article, as possible.

Let us now enjoy this philosophical yet motivational song, which is written and sung by Kavi Pradeep and composed by Usha Khanna. The movie ‘Jai Baba Amarnath’ makes its debut today on our blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 58 # Remembering Singer-Poet – Kavi Pradeep #
———————————————–—————————————————-

Today (11th December, 2017 is the nineteenth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (06.02.1915 – 11.12.1998) of Ramchandra Narayanji Dwivedi whom we fondly remember and whose name has been engraved in the history of Indian Cinema and Poetry as Kavi Pradeep.

On this occasion here is a song from “Jai Santoshi Maa-1975” which is penned by Kavi Pradeep (he has written all the six songs for this movie) and also lent his voice to the background version of this (today’s) song in the movie.

“Jai Santoshi Maa” was produced by Satram Rohra for ‘Bhagyalakshmi Chitra Mandir, Bombay’ and directed by Vijay Sharma.
It had Ashish Kumar, Kanan Kaushal, Rajnibala, Bela Bose, Asha Potdar, Leela Mishra, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Rajan Haksar, Kundan, Neelam, Padmarani, Lata Arora, Johny Whisky, Surendra Mishra, Dilip Dutt, Uma Dutt, Tiwari, Dubey Trilok Kapoor, Anand Marathe, Shri Bhagwan, Mahipal, and Anita Guha as ‘Santoshi Maa’.

Bharat Bhushan makes an ‘guest appearance’ in this movie.

The seventies was a very special decade for Hindi movies. It saw the emergence of the first superstar of the industry and later on the rise of an angry young man on screen. Action films, formula films, multi starrer movies came to the fore in this decade. Story presentation and action underwent changes from the earlier decades. Towards the end of the decade, we found disco music entering in Hindi film music in a big way.

This decade also saw one of the greatest mythological hit of all times viz. ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ in 1975.

Released in the same year as Sholay, this was a low budget movie but later on created records for collection. I have blurred memories about tales that many women started ‘santoshi maata vrat’ after watching this movie.

All the songs of this movie were very popular. Today’s song in particular holds a special nostalgic value for me.

I was just above 7 years old at that time. I remember that we watched both Sholay and Jai Santoshi Maa on the same day at Akola. I remember the name of the theatres. ‘Shalini’ talkies, which had that typical theatre like built inside and ‘Manek’ talkies – one of the old in the city and still maintained well and spacious.

Today when I checked the release dates of both these movies, I find that “Jai Santoshi Maa” was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1975 and “Sholay” was passed by Censor Board on 12.08.1975).

The song being presented today has two versions. One version is sung by Kavi Pradeep and the other by Mahendra Kapoor with chorus in both of them. music is given by C. Arjun and lyrics are by Kavi Pradeep ji.

This song, oozing with devotion and spirituality has a calming effect on me and it puts me at peace. No wonder that this is a song that I like to listen to again and again.

(Note: – In HFGK Vol-V this song is mentioned as appearing at number two and six, which normally should be in the order of appearing of the songs in the movie. However, I would like to mention here that this needs to be corrected in HFGK as in the movie this song appears at number one and two respectively in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Kavi Pradeep.

HFGK mentions the song ‘main to aarti utaaroon re’ at number one while in the movie it comes at number number five. And, at number six is the last song of the movie ‘madad karo he… madad karo santoshi maata’).

Let us now listen to this wonderful song …

This song is from the film Girls School-1949. It is sung by Chitalkar and Shamshad Begum- one of the most popular singing pair of the late 1940s. The song was written by Kavi Pradeep and the Music Director for this song was C.Ramchandra. In this film, there were two Music Directors. One was Anil Biswas ( he composed 4 songs) and C.Ramchandra ( he composed 5 songs).

In those days, it was quite unusual to have 2 very well known and well established composers for one film. During Partition time, few composers had left India without completing their assignments and the work was then completed by another composer. So there was a convincing reason for such cases. There were few pairs of composers like Husnlal-Bhagatram, but it was a professional and permanent team. In case of Girls School-49, having two big composers was quite unusual and it created ripples in the industry, not only in those times, but its echos were heard again in 1954 also. Let us see how it all happened.

This film was produced by Kavi Pradeep under the banner of Lokmanya Productions, Bombay. This was a company floated by him and Amiya Chakrawarty-director of this film. To understand the complexiities of Girls school, we must go back a little. In 1942, Anil Biswas was invited by Ranjit at a salary of Rs. 1500/ per month and by Bombay Talkies at a salary of Rs 2500/ per month. As National studio was winding up, Anil Biswas wanted to make a change anyway, but due to the contract of national he could not join Bombay Talkies openly. He, however, gave music to the film Basant-42 and name of his brother in Law, Pannalal Ghosh was used as its Music Director.

Finally when Anil Biswas joined Bombay Talkies, there were already two groups there. One was led by Devika Rani and Amiya Chakraborty and the other was led by S. Mukherjee along with Ashok Kumar, Gyan Mukherjee, Pradeep etc-a total of 15 artistes. Anil Biswas was invited by Devika Rani and that too at a salary of Rs. 2500/ per month, when Pradeep was getting Rs 1500 per month. This irritated Pradeep no end and he started troubling and finding faults with Anil Biswas. However Anil Biswas gave excellent music in the film Kismet and then everyone was happy as the film celebrated jubilees everywhere.

With this back ground, Anil Biswas joined Girls school as a Music Director, mainly due to Amiya who knew his calibre. Because of everybody’s background , the film was entirely shot in the Studios of Bombay Talkies. Kavi Pradeep being a producer and a Lyricist started interfering with Anil Biswas’s work and criticising him at every opportunity. Anil Biswas was fed up. He had already recorded three songs and a solo by Lata , ” tum hi kaho, mera man udas kyun na rahe” was to be recorded. Anil Biswas had taken C Ramchandra as his assistant for this film. Though C Ramchandra was already a popular and wellknown idndependent composer himself , still he had accepted to be his assistant here due to his respect for Anil Biswas. When the tune for Lata’s solo was made, Pradeep passed caustic remarks about it being not so good. There was an altercation between Anil Biswas and Pradeep and Biswas quit then and there and went away.

C Ramchandra had to take over as the Music Director for the balance songs of the movie. Pradeep was very happy. Next day recording of Lata’s solo song took place under the supervision of C Ramchandra, as planned. Later when Lata came to know that Anil Biswas has left and C Ramchandra had replaced him, she was very angry and said that she would not have recorded the song had she known about Anil Biswas’s exit. She objected to C Ramchandra taking over as the music direction and complained about it in the Artists association too. (Remember that Lata and C Ramchandra’s relations had not formed yet and Lata was still with Husnlal at that time.)

Later on in 1954, when O P Nayyar replaced Roshan for Mehbooba, Lata took up the issue with the Music Directors’ association. Anil Biswas was the chairman at that time and O P Nayyar was boycotted. At that time Lata quoted Girls school incident to prove that she was “highly Principled” on such matters!

Anyway, that was how C Ramchandra became the Music Director of Girls school-49 and he composed 4 duets of Shamshad and 1 solo of Lalita Deulkar in this movie. All the four duets of this pair are very interesting. However, with all this jhamelas, film Girls school was a total Flop. Pradeep lost heavily and closed the production company forthwith, after just this one film.

I had not seen this film, so I was curious to find its review in contemporary magazines. I did not find it in Film India or in other periodicals. However I read one letter from a reader in Film India, which criticised the film for not having to do anything with women’s education. He further asserted that the film title was a misnomer, since not even one scene was there in entire film which showed running classes or a teacher in the class etc. Finally I found a short synopsis of his film in the ‘ Encyclopedia of Indian Cinema, which is given here to give an idea of what the film was about.

” Rural drama about Meena (Geeta Bali) who leaves home rather than submit to an arranged marriage and starts a girls school in a village, although opposed by the local zamindar. The zamindars brother-in-law Bipin (Sajjan), who lusts after Meena, is the villain. The hero (Sohan) appears in answer to an advertisement for a schoolteacher and is appointed only because Meena mistakes his name – Shanti Kumar Majumdar for that of a woman. The zamindar’s widowed sister Sumitradevi, a supporter of the school, objects because he is not married. Meena and Shanti Kumar fall in love but realises the damage he may cause to her school and leaves. Bipin then spreads rumours about Shanti Kumar morals, which causes further difficulties that have to be resolved before both the future of the school and of the loving couple could be assured. ”

The cast of the film consisted of Rehana, Sohan, Kuldeep Kaur, David, Pran, Iftekhar etc etc. Not much information is available about this Hero- Sohan. In Hindi films, many aspirants tried their luck. Not all of them got an opportunity to enter films. In the early era, it was easy, but as the years passed by, it became difficult for the hopefuls. Few lucky ones got a Mentor- it helped them to only to enter films but not stay in the industry.

“Aaye bhi vo, gaye bhi vo, khatam fasana ho gaya “. These newcomers were given a fair opportunity to showcase their abilities, but unfortunately, despite their honest efforts, their skill did not show up and the audience was unimpressed. They got big banners, good experienced directors, but they disappointed their Mentors with non existent abilities to act. They proved to be ‘Non- Actors ‘.

Among them, some male actor’s 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 Saraswati Chandra-68, Rajiv in Nayi umar ki nayi fasal-65, Aroop kumar in Bezubaan-62 etc etc.

Sohan Kapila was also one such actor, who was not successful as a Hero. Actually, big banners like Filmistan supported him. He got seasoned Heroines like Geeta Bali and Rehana as well as Debutants Jayashree Gadkar and Nalini Chonkar, but nothing worked. He proved that you can take the Horse to the water, but you can not make it drink !!! He acted in Girls school-49, lajawab-50, Sanskar-58, Ek armaan mera-59, Chaand ki duniya-59, Babar-60, Commercial pilot officer-63 and Picnic-66 and may be some more as character roles. After he retired, his daughter actress Padmini Kapila also had the same fate !

The film had 9 songs (4-by Anil Biswas and 5 by C.Ramchandra). Five songs are already discussed in this Blog. Today’s song is the sixth song. The song is not very melodious or foot tapping, but it has an unmistakable C.Ramchandra stamp on it. So let us enjoy this fun song.

Editors comments:
Today (11 december 2017) is Kavi Pradeep’s remembrance day. So this song serves as a tribute to him.

Secondly, this song is the 600th song of Shamshad Begam in the blog. She becomes the 18th artist and seventh singer to reach this mark in the blog.

“Veeraangna”(1947) was directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal for Laxmi Productions, Bombay. This “historical” movie had Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adib, Jeewan, Prabha, Badri Prasad, Sankatha Prasad, Shanta Patel, Kanta etc in it.

There were eight songs in the movie according to HFGK, but the details of the singers of these songs are not available.

Here is the first song from “Veeraangna”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki. Pradeep (writing under the name of Miss Kamal) is the lyricist. Haari Prasanna Das and Manna Dey were the two music directors but the distribution of songs among them is not known. I have assumed that this song is composed by Hari Prasanna Das.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song was picturised on Shobhana Samarth. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Veeraangna”(1947) makes its debut in the blog.

Today (14 april 2017) as I write this post, I cannot help but remember Legendary Singer Shamshad Begum. It is after all her Birthday. It has been nearly four years since She left for her heavenly abode. Like two of my favourites S D Burman and C Ramchandra, She was born in and passed away in the same month. In her case it was the month of April. She was born on 14th April 1919 at Lahore (as She told me when I interviewed her) and passed away on 23rd April 2013. Today (14 april 2017) would have been her 98th Birthday.

Today’s song is from a less known film of the early 1950s. The film is Chamkee-52. Though it was not a famous film, and its songs were not popular, this was a film of significance for more than one reason.
