There are many lyricists who joined Hindi film industry since the talkies came into being. While some of them became famous, many remained in the background though some of them were connected with the film industry for a considerable length of time. The result is we do not have much information about the latter category of lyricists as far as their their detailed profiles are concerned. In this category, the names of Dr. Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, Rammurti Chaturvedi, Bhutaram Sharma, Shams Lucknowi, Kaif Irfani, Shevan Rizvi and many more come to my mind. Among the ‘many mores’ is the lyricist Aziz Kashmiri about whom very little is known of his life before he joined Hindi film industry.

In the 1930s and 1940s, there was a producer and director by the name of Kikubhai Desai. He had produced and directed many mythological films in the silent era. With the advent of talkies in 1931, Kikubhai Desai switched over to talkies. His expertise lay in producing talkies of stunt, costume and magical genres. He also directed a few of these films produced by him under these genres. Some of the films he produced under the banner of Paramount Pictures were ‘Chalta Purza’ (1934), ‘Khooni Kanjhar’ (1935), ’Jaadui Danda’ (1935), ‘Burkhawali’ (1936), ‘Guru Ghantal’ (1937), ‘Alladdin Aur Jaadui Chiraag’ (1938), ‘Aflatoon Aurat’ (1940) etc. These films were meant for mass entertainment only. The films were produced at his own Paramount Studio, now known as Filmalaya Studio.

Whenever I listen to songs rendered by Hafeez Khan Mastana, popularly known as Khan Mastana, I feel very sad and sorry for him. He was the son of Ustad Waheed Khan of Etawah Gharana who was a well-known sitar and surbahar player. The renowned sitarist Ustad Vilayat Khan was Khan Mastana’s first cousin.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 40
——————————————-
MOHABBAT KI JEET (1943) was produced under the banner of Girdhar Bahaar Productions and it was directed by Ramanlal Desai. The star cast included Nadia, Navinchandra, Leela Pawar, S Nazir, Shaqir, Agha, Munshi Kanzar, Vasantrao Pehlwan etc. From the star cast it can be safely assumed that the film belonged to the genre of stunt/action. I have no idea about the story of the film. But Nadia being the heroine in the film, one can expect that the story of the film would revolve around her role of striking out the forces of evil and restore goodness to the society. She would generally attain this by doing spectacular stunts and acrobatics which would please the front benchers in the theatres.
