“Tamanna”(1969) was directed by K P Atma for K S Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Shashikala, Agha, Nazima, Deven Verma, Nazeer Hussain, Sulochana, Sajjan, Achla Sachdev, Asit Sen, Krishn Dhaan, Rasheed Khan, Narbada Shankar, Kesri, Khairaati, Vimal Raj, Moolchand, Radheshyam, Sayyad, Md Ibrahim, Fatima, Santosh etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. To of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tamanna”(1969) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Rafi and chorus. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The O P Nayyarish Punjabi dance music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Mala Sinha, Biswajeet and others. It is a song that deserved to be better knon, but it ended up as an obscure song from an qually obscure movie.

Unnoticeably, ith this song, Kalyanji Anandji complete their 600th song in the blog as music directors.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)–Song No.101
———————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 december 2010) saw seven songs getting covered from seven movies. First song of the day was covered at 9:19 AM and the final song at 1:01 PM. So unlike other days, when all songs would get covered before 10 AM, this day I struggled to publish the songs of the day.

Here are the details of the seven songs covered that day:-

Blog post number Song Movie (year) Remarks
3374 Tum kyaa jaano more maathe ki bindiyaa ka mol Kaneez(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
3375 Muhabbat par bahaar aati jahaan gulzaar ho jaataa Shair (1949) Movie YIPPED by now
3376 Duniyaa waalon badaa hai mushqil apne dil ko todnaa Chhoti Bhaabhi(1950) Seven songs covered out of nine
3377 Dil le gaya ji koi dil le gayaa Sanam(1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
3378 Mere chaand mere laal re Deewaana(1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
3379 Aji o suno to 12 O’clock(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
3380 Ham jee lenge bin tumhaare…tum meri zindagi ho Dillagi (1966) 4 songs covered out of 7

One can see that five out of seven movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

“Dillagi”(1966) is one of the unYIPPEED movies and so it is one of the two movies eligible for blog ten year challenge today.

“Dillagi”(1966) was produced by Tony Walker and directed by S Bannerjee for Golden Films, Bombay. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Bela Bose, Johny Walker, Nazima, Vijay Kumar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar, Keshav, Khurshid, Hammad, Tuntun, Moolchand, Pravin Paul, Tony Walker, Bela Bose, Zeb Sultana, Shabana, Roop Kumari, Ravi Kant, Ratan Gaurang, Tulsi, Aziz, Maqsood, Manjeet, Abdul Jabbar, Suresh, N.Misra, Samarlal Damani, Ajay Kumar, Abdul Kader, Baxi, Shrfu, Edwina etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it and four of these songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Dillagi”(1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Musc is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The fun teasing song is picturised as a party song on Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Tony Walker or Vijay Kumar, Chinoo Shikari, Edwina etc.

I heard this fun song during my early childhood and I loved the lyrics, especially the words kabootar kabootar thrown in the lyrics for no apparent reasons other than to make it a fun song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4500 Post No. : 16037

Welcome all to this post, which should have come yesterday. But as they say ‘it is better late than never’ and as we on the blog say ‘it is never too late (even if the post comes after a long gap (ranging from a week to a month) of a particular special day).
😊
In any case we will be having a song to enjoy, a look-back (or glance? 😊) on the yesteryears or a brief journey ‘down memory lane’ …

I will directly come to the point now and clear the suspense that yesterday 11th November’2020 was the eighty-fourth (born on 11.11.1936) birthday of the gorgeous, beautiful, (plus sober, decent?), cheerful, ever smiling and ‘chulbuli’ actress Mala Sinha.

On the blog we today belatedly wish her a very happy birthday and a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

I got to watch many of her movies from the ‘golden era’ or ‘black & white’ era and later many of her movies from the ‘colored’ era too. I am not going to list them all here because it will be a long list. I would only like to say that I do not remember any single movie of her ‘where I have not liked her performance’. I always like her screen presence and also her appearances in the songs or song sequences.

When I was looking for information about her initial career, I got to learn that she was an approved singer of ‘All India Radio’ but never got to playback singing in movies.
Ot of the twentythree Bangla movies she acted in, she was paired with Uttam Kumar in seven movies. Interested readers can visit for more interesting information on her on ‘wiki’ here.

On the occasion of her birthday I am going to present a song picturized on her from the movie ‘Rivaaj-1972’ which I came across recently. After listening to the song I totally fall in love with this song.

‘Rivaaj-1972’ was directed by T. Prakash Rao for ‘Sona Films, Madras’. (This movie was dedicated to the memory of the great K. Asif)

It was presented by H. Prasann Chand Nahar. K.C. Bokadia was the producer of this movie.

It had Mala Sinha, Sanjeev Kumar (the sub title for Sanjeev Kumar mentions ‘President award winner), Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Jr Mehmood, Baby Gauri and Zeb Rehman.
They were supported by Nazir Hussain, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Pandri Bai, Mukri, Mrs. Shaukat Kaifi Azmi, Raj Kishore, Swaraj Kumar, Subrato and others.

The story of this movie was written by R. Venkatachalam. Its dialogues were written by Kaifi Azmi.
Editing of this movie was done by R. Bhaskaran.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.08.1972.

The movie had eights songs (including a multiple version song) written by Kaifi Azmi, Indeevar, Hasrat Jaipuri, Anjaan, S.H. Bihari and Neeraj. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur were the playback singers for this movie.

Here is the list of the eight songs of this movie and the songs already posted have been added with their link;

Song Lyricist Posted On
Main teri prem deewaani meera Neeraj Being covered in this post
Tujh mein hoon main mujh mein hai tu S.H. Bihari 09.07.2013
Pyaara pyaara sabse nyaara aanewaala hai koyi hamaara Indeevar
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (male version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Tujh jaisi laadli laakhon mein ek (female version) Hasrat Jaipuri
Lagey koi lottery yaa jackpot lagey Anjaan 30.01.2015
Jalaa do jalaa do jaalaa do duniya ko jalaa do Kaifi Azmi 06.11.2020
Phoolon sa mahka huaa ye reshmi tan mera Anjaan

Music for this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Mala Sinha where she is lip-syncing in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Sanjeev Kumar and many others are also seen in the picturization of the song which happens in a temple (the famous Meera temple of Udaipur, as mentioned in the ‘wiki’ page of this movie ‘Rivaaj-1972).

The beautiful lyrics for today’s song are by Neeraj ji.

When I listened to the song for first time around a week or ten days back, I was totally taken up by this song and fall in love with it. It grows upon us if we listen to it again and again.
This beautiful composition of Shankar-Jaikishan is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and I must say what I mentioned for Mala Sinha that I have never came across a single Suman Kalyanpur song which I had not liked and enjoyed.

With the song Suman Kalyanpur has now four hundred song on the blog. Still a long to go to cover her remaining songs. It is still below half way mark if we consider the total 857 songs sung by her in Hindi movies. Today happens to be the 4500th day for the blog. Suman Kalyanpur completing her 400th song in the blog on the 4500th day for the blog sounds quite a befitting occasion.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song …
Ed note:-Moreover, this article is the 300th article for Avinash Scrapwala as a guest contributor in the blog.

“Chhattees Ghante”(1974) was produced and directed by Raj Tilak for Tilak movies private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Parveen Babi, Iftekhar, Ashoo, Ramesh Deo, Danny Denzongpa, Alankar Joshi, Sonia Sahni, Jagdish Raaj, Deven Verma, Urmila Bhatt, Madan Puri etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Chhattees Ghante”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Chakravorty.

The song is picturised as a Lord Ram bhajan. The picturisation shows Raj Kumar and Mala Sinha singing this bhajan. Master Alankar joshi, late for the bhajan by a few seconds, is hesitant to join his parents. Mala Sinha does not frown and gives him a pat assuring him that he may take his seat. And who is the lady seated behind them, devotedly joining her hands together. She is Parveen Babi.

It is rather unusual to see Raj Kumar and Parveen Babi, and also Mala Sinha to some extent, singing a bhajan. So that way, this song is a special song. 🙂

The picturisation also shows Ranjeet, trying to enter the house stealthily. So, unlike the other characters, he sticks faithfully to his reputation Hindi movies.

It is quite a nice and soothing song to listen to, especially in the morning. I listened to this song for the first time this morning, some 46 years after this song was created. 🙂

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 11
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Dhuli’ (‘The Drummer’ 1954, Bangla film) was directed by Pinaki Mukherjee. The main star cast included Prashanta Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Mala Sinha, Anil Chatterjee, Pahadi Sanyal, Chhabi Biswas etc. The film is available for viewing with English sub-titles on the video sharing platforms.

The main theme in the story of the film is music. The story also throws some points for the audience to ponder as to how a simple villager’s life is threatened by the modernity of the city life. Also, how the innocence of a villager is affected by the materialistic life in the city. At the end, the virtues of a villager triumph over the materilism of a city dweller, of course at the cost of the death of the former who was a talented singer from the village. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Parashar (Prashanta Kumar), the grandson of a celebrated drummer in his village develops interest in singing when he witnesses a singer singing a devotional song during Durga Pooja. However, his grandfather wants him to continue playing Dhol as his family has been playing it for ages in the village. After the death of his grandfather, Parashar moves to Calcutta (Kolkata) to learn singing from a renowned music teacher (Pahadi Sanyal) who has a daughter, Minoti (Suchitra Sen). Since Parashar has no place to stay in Calcutta, he is given a room to stay in his teacher’s house. Soon after the completion of his musical training, his music teacher dies leaving him and Minoti in the house. In due course of time, Parashar becomes one of the popular radio singers. He also trains Minoti for singing. Both Parashar and Minoti develops liking in each other’s company. Both of them refrain from telling that they love each other.

There is a musical competition in which Minoti and Ratri (Mala Sinha), the daughter of a wealthy family, are the participants among others. Minoti wins the competition. Ratri who comes second in the competition is upset. She manages to employ Parashar as her new music teacher to improve her singing. However, he has to leave Minoti’s house as this was a pre-condition put in by Ratri’s mother lest it may become a scandal that Parashar was sharing the house with Minota after the death of her father.

The training sessions bring Parashar and Ratri close to each other who started liking Parashar. The closeness of Ratri and the respect Parashar gets from Ratri’s family is not liked by Pulak, a family friend who also acts as a Manager for Ratri’s singing concerts who believes that in a concert, appearance is more important than the singing talent. He tries to create a rift between Ratri and Parashar. Pulak wants to commercially exploit the singing talent of Ratri through publicity much against the wishes of Parashar. This leads to some rifts between them.

In the meantime, Parashar’s grandmother in the village is very sick. His uncle comes to Ratri’s house to take Parashar to his village. It is at this point, Pulak comes to know that Parashar belongs to drummer’s community. Ratri is upset as she thinks that he deliberately concealed his low caste identity. Upset with Ratri’s outburst, Parashar leaves Calcutta to visit his village to see his grandmother. But the turns of events have so much shattered the mind of Parashar that he becomes vagabond without eating for days. One day, he collapses at the banks of a river due to exhaustion and weakness. Minoti who comes to know about Parashar being missing, finds him and brings him to her house. But he does not recover from his illness and dies. So, the end is unconventional for a love triangle of this type in which it is one of the heroines who usually dies at the end.

Being a musical film, there are many songs in the film which I have lost count because some of the songs are very short. But I have noted that there are at least 3 full-pledged Hindi songs of three different genre – ghazal, semi-classical and devotional.

I have selected a ghazal, ‘taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi’ sung by Pratima Banerjee. Since Pt. Bhushan’s name appears as one of the lyricists in the film, others being Narayan Gangopadhyay, Pranab Roy and Bimal Ghosh, I have taken him as the lyricist for this song which has been set to music by Rajen Sarkar. The song is picturised on a young Mala Sinha.

Blog Day : 3972 Post No. : 15057

Yesterday (2 june 2019) was Sunday. I for some reason thought that there was lots of time available with me and so I would do things that I had not done for ages. Sunday morning is the day when DD national presents ‘Rangoli’.

I used to be a regular watcher of this programme when I was based at Bilaspur. That was four to seven years ago. I have rarely watched this programme since.

On this ‘Rangoli’ programme on 2 june 2019, This presenter announced that the programme would have songs dealing with nature. I found that most songs were from 1990s from movies such as ‘Roja’ etc, with a couple of songs from 1960s. There was no value addition from the anchor on these songs while discussing the songs. May be I was expecting her too keep us enthralled like an Ameen Sayani or Nalin Shah. But then those days and those knowledgeable presenter have become rare to find. We should at least be thankful that Vividh Bharti still has good presenters with knowledge as well as passion for old songs.

I then thought that instead of finding fault in the presentation of ‘Rangoli’, I should look in the mirror. Even my articles in the blog has become routine. It is time to bring some zing and enthusiasm in my writeups.

Just as the ‘Rangoli’ programme covered mainly songs from 1990s, I too noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s. Somehow those songs of 1990s did not bring the same “kuchh kuchh hota hai” feeling in me. I decided to randomly pick a song from 1960s. This random picking gave me a song from ‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963).

‘Phool Bane Angaarey’ (1963) was directed by Suraj Prakash for Asiatic Arts Productions Bombay. This movie had Mala Sinha, Raj Kumar, Johny Walker, Aashish Kumar, Shammi, Mumtaz Begam, Mukri, Nasreen, Tuntun, Sarita Devi, Laxmi, Leela Mishra, Chaman Puri, Ravikant, Mansaram, Bhalla etc in it.

The movie has six songs in it. Three of the most popular songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

The song under discussion, that I picked by lottery, is one that I had never heard before. But when I listened to this song, I quickly realised that my hunch about the difference in quality of songs between golden era songs and songs of 1990s was not misplaced. This forgotten and less heard song from 1960s sounded so sweet and lovely. And I had never heard this song before !

This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

It was one of the earlier songs penned by Anand Bakshi in his career. This song came in the era when classy lyrics were being written by several established lyricists. So Anand Bakshi, in a bid to make his mark among such talented lyricists came up with this gem of a song. It is ironic that many of his lesser quality songs are better known than this song.

Even the music director duo were relatively new on the scene. And in this song they have tried to create a Salil Chaudhary like effect. The song and its picturisation is reminiscent of Salil Chaudhary compositions of those years.

The song is picturised on Mala Sinha.

Yesterday (2 June 2019) gave me a feeling that I failed to utilise it to the full. Nevertheless, I noted down the lyrics of some songs from 1990s, that I will discuss next.


Song-Sambhal to le dil deewaana (Phool Bane Angaarey)(1963) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

dil deewaana
zara
thehar
jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana aa
sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

main guzri umr ko waapas zara pukaar to loon
main apne aap ko thhoda bahut sanwaar to loon
libaas gham ka nigaahon se main utaar to loon
samaa to ho le suhaana zara thahar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

khushi bhi itni achaanak main seh na paaungi
main apne aap mein bas aaj reh na paaungi
jo tum se kehna hai mujhko
wo keh na paaungi
main yaad kar loon fasaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

sataane waale
tumhen main bhi thhoda tadpaaun
talaash karte phiro tum mujhe
main chhup jaaun
hazaar kehne pe bhi saamne na main aaun
banaa loon koi bahaana
zara thehar jaana
abhi na saamne aana
zara thehar jaana

sambhal to le dil deewaana
zara thehar jaana
sambhal to le

दिल दीवाना
ज़रा
ठहर
जाना

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

मैं गुज़री उम्र को वापस ज़रा पुकार तो लूँ
मैं अपने आप को थोड़ा बहुत संवार तो लूँ
लिबास ग़म का निगाहों से मैं उतार तो लूँ
समा तो हो ले सुहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

खुशी भी इतनी अचानक मैं सह ना पाऊँगी
मन अपने आप में बस आज रह ना पाऊँगी
जो तुमसे कहना है मुझको
वो कह ना पाऊँगी
मैं याद कर लूँ फसाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

सताने वाले तुम्हें भी थोड़ा तड़पाऊँ
तलाश करते फिरो तुम मुझे
मैं छुप जाऊँ
हज़ार कहने पे भी सामने ना मैं आऊँ
बना लूँ कोई बाहाना ज़रा ठहर जाना
अभी ना सामने आना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

संभल तो ले दिल दीवाना
ज़रा ठहर जाना
संभल तो ले

Today’s song is from film ‘Ek Shola’ (1958). It is sung by Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt. The lyricist was Majrooh Sultanpuri and the music director was Madan Mohan. The film was produced by Deep and Pradeep Productions –  a joint venture of Deep Khosla and Pradeep Kumar. The film was directed by Chander Sehgal. Not much is known about Chander Sehgal, except that he directed only 2 films – ‘Ek Shola’ and ‘Mitti Mein Sona’ (1960). He died on 29-5-1960. The cast of the film is Pradeep Kumar, Mala Sinha, Jawahar Kaul, Leela Mishra, Nazir Hussain, Shubha Khote etc.

In Hindi films, there have been three actors who were very handsome and very lucky but zero in acting – Karan Dewan, Pradeep Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. They all appeared in leading roles opposite all leading actresses of their times. They had the best films, best songs and best roles. Karan Dewan had about 25 Silver Jubilees to his credit and was considered a lucky star. Bharat Bhushan had the most musical films to his credit like ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Shabaab’ (1954) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) etc. Pradeep Kumar had ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963).

All three had their brothers producing films for them. Gemini Dewan made films for Karan Dewan, R. Chandra made films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas for Pradeep Kumar. Unfortunately, in later years, all three lost everything and died in poverty and neglectful anonymity. Karan Dewan was a manager with BR Chopra’s production company. When he died no one came for his funeral except for Chandrashekhar and Manmohan Krishan from the Cine Artist’s Association. Bharat Bhushan even worked as a watchman in a film studio, in his last days. He too died unsung and only the men from the Association were present at the cremation.

Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging him, unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful, and even close relatives desert you in bad times.

Pradeep Kumar aka Sital Batabyal was born on 4 January 1925. When he was 17 years old, he started as assistant cameraman. Later he decided to take up acting. He started his film career in Bengali films. His notable roles in Bengali films were in ‘Alaknanda‘ (1947), directed by renowned filmmaker Debaki Bose, and in ’42 (1951). It was Debki Bose, who gave him the filmy name Pradeep Kumar.

Pradeep Kumar  then shifted to Bombay and Filmistan studios, and had an important role in the film ‘Anand Math (1952). He played the lead role with Bina Rai in ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and with Vyjayanthimala in ‘Nagin’ (1954). Both films were very popular and had songs that added to the movies’ success. He had a spate of releases in the second half of the 1950s. He did not enjoy as much success in the 1960s, though ‘Ghoonghat’ (1960), ‘Aarti’ (1962) & ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963) were successful. He worked with Meena Kumari in seven films; ‘Adil-E-Jahangir’, ‘Bandhan’ (1956), ‘Chitralekha’, ‘Bahu Begum’, ‘Bheegi Raat’, ‘Aarti’ and ‘Noorjehan’; and with Mala Sinha in eight films; ‘Naya Zamana’, ‘Hamlet’, ‘Baadshah’, ‘Detective’ (1958 movie), ‘Fashion’ (1959 film), ‘Ek Shola’, ‘Duniya Na Maane’, and ‘Mitti Mein Sona’.

He did not get to act in lead roles with the newer heroines of the 1960s such as Sadhana, Saira Banu, Babita or Sharmila Tagore, though he did work with Asha Parekh in ‘Ghoonghat’ and ‘Meri Surat Teri Aankhen and with Waheeda Rehman in ‘Raakhi (1963). In 1969, he moved to character roles with ‘Sambandh’ and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’, but did not have many visible roles till ‘Jaanwar’ and ‘Razia Sultan’ in 1983.

He won the Kalakar Award-Lifetime Achievement Award (1999).

Pradeep Kumar died in Calcutta on 27 October 2001, at the age of 76. He is survived by his daughters Reena, Meena and Beena Banerjee who plays character roles in movies and TV serials including ‘Uttaran’, son Debiprasad and granddaughters Tanisha, Suparna, Riya and Hrishita. Beena Banerjee’s son Siddharth Banerjee worked as assistant director in Sajid Khan’s ‘Housefull 2’ (2012) and ‘Himmatwala’ (2013).

Mala Sinha was an educated, hard working actress. Though she worked with leading banners and was heroine to well known heroes, she was never counted among the class I heroines of her times. She worked with many newcomers, like Dharmendra etc. Her career spanned a long time but she never got a single Filmfare Award, though nominated 4 times.

Mala Sinha was born in a Bengali Nepalese Christian family in Calcutta, on 11-11-1936. Mala Sinha claimed herself a Bengali descent Nepali many years ago in a TV interview Her parents named her Alda. Her friends at school used to tease her by calling her Dalda (a brand of vegetable oil), so she changed her name to Mala. In her childhood she learnt dancing and singing. Although she was an approved singer of All India Radio, she has never done playback singing in films. But as a singer she has done stage shows in many languages from 1947 to 1975.

Mala started her career as child artist in Bengali films ‘Jai Vaishno Devi’ followed by ‘Shri Krishan Leela’, ‘Jog Biyog’ and ‘Dhooli’. Noted Bengali director Ardhendu Bose saw her acting in a school play and took permission from her father to cast her as a heroine in his film ‘Roshanara’ (1952) – Bangla film, her cinematic debut.

After acting in a couple of films in Calcutta, Mala had to go to Bombay for a Bengali film. There she met Geeta Bali, a noted Bollywood actress, who was charmed by her and introduced her to film director Kidar Sharma. It was Sharma who cast her as a heroine in his ‘Rangeen Ratein‘ (1956). Her first Hindi film was ‘Baadshah’ (1954) opposite Pradeep Kumar. Then came ‘Ekadashi’ (1955), a mythological film. Both failed, but her lead role in Kishore Sahu’s ‘Hamlet’ (1954), paired opposite Pradeep Kumar, fetched her rave reviews in spite of it failing at the box office. Films like ‘Lai Batti’ (ac­tor Balraj Sahni’s only directorial venture), ‘Nausherwan-E-Adil’ where she starred as the fair maiden Marcia in Sohrab Modi’s romance about forbidden love and ‘Phir Subah Hogi’, which was direc­tor Ramesh Saigal’s adapta­tion of Dosteovsky’s novel Crime and Punishment, established Mala Sinha’s reputation as a versatile actress who took the maximum career risks by accepting unconventional roles.

Mala was a singer of some repute and used to sing for All India Radio; she was not allowed to sing playback (even for herself) in the movies with the lone exception being 1972’s ‘Lalkar’. In the 1950s, she had string of hits opposite Pradeep Kumar like ‘Fashion’ (1957), ‘Detective’ (1958), ‘Duniya Na Maane’ (1959) though their first two ventures had failed. The films she did with Pradeep Kumar were men-oriented. In 1957, noted Bollywood actor and film director Guru Dutt (the husband of Geeta Dutt) cast Mala in his film ‘Pyaasa‘ (1957) in a role originally intended for Madhubala. Mala gave a memorable performance as the relatively unsympa­thetic part of an ambitious woman who chooses to marry a rich man (played by actor Rehman) and have a loveless marriage rather than a poor, unsuccessful poet and her impoverished lover (played by Guru Dutt) whom she ditches. ‘Pyaasa‘ remains to this day a classic in the history of Indian cinema and a turning point for Mala Sinha.

After ‘Pyaasa’ her major success were ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958) and Yash Chopra’s directorial debut ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) that elevated her into a major dramatic star. There was no looking back for Sinha then as she was part of many successful movies from 1958 to the early ’60s like ‘Parvarish’ (1958), ‘Ujaala’,’ Main Nashe Main Hoon’, ‘Duniya Na Maane’, ‘Love Marriage’ (1959), ‘Bewaqoof’ (1960), ‘Maya’ (1961), ‘Hariyali Aur Rasta’ and ‘Dil Tera Deewana’ (1962), ‘Anpadh’, ‘Bombay Ka Chor’ (1962). Critics believe her career best performance was in ‘Bahurani’ (1963), ‘Gumrah’, ‘Gehra Daag’, ‘Apne Huye Paraaye’ and ‘Jahan Ara’. Apart from pairing with Pradeep Kumar, her pairing opposite Raaj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar, Biswajit and Manoj Kumar in woman-oriented films were appreciated by audiences, with her films opposite Biswajit being the most popular.  She did 10 films with Biswajit. In 2007, they won the Star Screen Lifetime Achievement Award, calling them on stage together giving due respect to their popularity as a pair who have tasted box office success.

The most remarkable feature of career of Mala Sinha was that most of her 1960s and 1970s hits were fueled by her own star power as much as the heroes and most of the times her role was more powerful than the hero. Though she was pitted opposite her seniors like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar, Pradeep Kumar and when she acted opposite the emerging stars from late 1950s like Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar and Raaj Kumar, she made sure her role was as good as theirs.

In 1966, Sinha went to Nepal to act in a Nepali film called ‘Maitighar when the Nepali film industry was still in its infancy. This was the only Nepali film she did in her career. Her hero in the film was an estate owner called Chidambar Prasad Lohani. Soon after, Mala Sinha married CP Lohani with the blessings of her parents. From the beginning theirs was a long-distance marriage with Lohani based in Kathmandu to look after his business and Sinha living in Bombay with their daughter Pratibha. She continued acting after her marriage.

From 1974, she cut down on her assignments as the lead actresses. She accepted strong character roles in films like ’36 Ghante (1974), ‘Zindagi‘ (1976), ‘Karmayogi (1978), ‘Be-Reham’ (1980), ‘Harjaee’ (1981), ‘Yeh Rishta Na Tootay’, ‘Babu’ (film) and ‘Khel’, which were popular.

In the early ’90s Madhuri Dixit was promoted as new Mala Sinha in magazines. But, after 1994, she completely withdrew from industry and has given very few public appearances. In ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ and BR Chopra’s ‘Gumrah’, she played the first unwed mother and adulterous wife respectively in Hindi cinema. As she grew older, she gracefully moved on to doing character roles that befitted her age. She was last seen in ‘Zid’ (1994). Though Mala Sinha evinced as much interest in her daughter Pratibha’s career as her father did in her career, she was unable to achieve the same success for her daughter. (Adapted from wiki).

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada’ (1954) in Bangla and Hindi. In 1954 again, she did her first film in Bombay, ‘Baadshah’ (1954), then came ‘Hamlet’ (1954), ‘Riyaasat’ (1955) and ‘Ekadashi’ (1955).

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted ‘Rangeen Raten’ (1956) with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film ‘Riyaasat’ (1955), her Hero was Mahipal and in film ‘Ekadashi’ it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example, in film ‘Professor’ (1962) Shammi Kapoor’s heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was ‘Pyar Ki Jeet-62’, opposite Mahipal – a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade heroine Meena Kumari also had done several mythological and costume films before ‘Baiju Bawra’ took her high up and above other heroines. Films like ‘Veer Ghatotkach’ (1949), ‘Shri Ganesh Mahima’ (1950), ‘Laxmi Narayan’ (1951), ‘Hanuman Paataal Vijay’ (1951) and ‘Alladin aur Jadui Chirag’ (1953) had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with ‘Baazi’ (1951), had earlier worked in ‘The Last Message’ or ‘Aakhri Paigham’ (1949). However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors, but even singers do this. They hesitate to tell that the first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare ‘Arzoo’ (1950) as her first film, under Anil Biswas. But she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film ‘Aakhri Paigham’ (1949), under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

There were 8 songs in the film ‘Ek Shola’. 3 songs are already discussed. This is the 4th song. It is a long song, recorded on one side each of 78 rpm record nos. N-52832 and 52833). We present here the full song covering both sides.

 


Song – Chanda Se Bhi Pyaara Hai, Akhion Ka Taara Hai  (Ek Shola) (1958) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, Music – Madan Mohan

ghata ka saaya hai zindagi
idhar se aai udhar chali
rukey na jeevan ki baansuri
haaye.. apni dhun mein gaa

khushi se saagar jal chhalke
pakad chaley dil sambhal ke
kahen tarangen machal ke
zaraa mauj mein lehra haaye..
khushi se saagar jal chhalke
pakad chaley dil sambhal ke

idhar se aai udhar chali

jab mera nannha chhaiyan chhaiyan
thummak thummak doley
tuk tuk taakey
jhuk jhuk jhaanke

चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला
चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला

घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

खुशी से सागर जल छलके
पकड़ चले दिल संभाल के
कहें तरंगें मचल के
ज़रा मौज में लहरा हाए॰॰
खुशी से सागर जल छलके
पकड़ चले दिल संभाल के
कहें तरंगें मचल के
ज़रा मौज में लहरा हाए॰॰
घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

चंदा से भी प्यारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला॰॰आ॰॰आ

जब मेरा नन्हा छइयाँ छइयाँ
ठुमक ठुमक डोले
टूक टूक ताके
झुक झुक झाँके
गुड़िया घूँघट खोले
जब मेरा नन्हा छइयाँ छइयाँ
ठुमक ठुमक डोले
टूक टूक ताके
झुक झुक झाँके
गुड़िया घूँघट खोले
हो गुड्डे सा दुलारा है
अखिओं का तारा है
दिल का सहारा मेरा लाड़ला॰॰आ॰॰आ

घटा का साया है ज़िंदगी
इधर से आई उधर चली
रुके ना जीवन की बांसुरी
हाए॰॰ अपनी धुन में गा

जो मस्तीओं में जीए हैं
उसे ना ?? ?? ??
ये राज़ तेरे लिए है मगर
तू नहीं समझा हाए॰॰
जो मस्तीओं में जीए हैं

Lyrics

tumhi ne chhup chhup ke dil ko uchhaala
tumhi ne chhalkaaya nainon ka pyaaala
tumhi ne phir har ik se kah bhi daala
tum bade kharaab ho
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke dil ko uchhaala
tumhi ne chhalkaaya nainon ka pyaala
tumhi ne phir har ik se kah bhi daala
tum bade kharaab ho
tumhi ne chup chup ke

tum ek baar dikhla ke pyaar
haaye dil se khelte ho
gairon se mil ke aankhen badal ke
phir dil se khelte ho
rahne do
ab hum bhi
nahin tumse bolenge jaayiye
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke dil ko uchhaala
tumhi ne chhalkaaya nainon ka pyaala
tumhi ne phir har ik se kah bhi daala
tum bade kharaab ho
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke

duniya se aaj ulfat ka raaz
tumne kaha nahin hai
sab hain humaari
is mein tumhaari koi khata nahin hai
aaj samjhe
haan haan samjhe
jhoothhi kasmein humse na khaaiye
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke dil ko uchhaala
tumhi ne chhalkaaya nainon ka pyaala
tumhi ne phir har ik se kah bhi daala
tum bade kharaab ho
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke

meri sunke baat
malte ho haath
meethhi nazar ?? ho
sadqe tumhaare
kuchh bhi ho pyaare
par tum mere liye ho
jaane kya kya
keh daala
meri baaton ko bhool jaaiye
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke dil ko uchhaala
tumhi ne chhalkaaya nainon ka pyaala
tumhi ne phir har ik se kah bhi daala
tum bade kharaab ho
tumhi ne chhup chhup ke

Song-Chaliye jee bewafa hain ham (Aankh Michauli)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale
chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale

dhadkan pe tera hi haath nahin
laakhon hain
ik do ki baat nahin een
dhadkan pe tera hi haath nahin
laakhon hain
ik do ki baat nahin een
tum hi nahin
milte yahi saare zamaane waale
chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale

jo kal thha
chalta hai daur wahi
hai apni mehfil ka taur wahi ee
jo kal thha
chalta hai daur wahi
hai apni mehfil ka taur wahi ee
chal bhi diye
aa bhi gaye baaten banaane waale
chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale

chaahat se milta hai koi kahaan
dil jode
aisa hai kaun yahaan
chaahat se milta hai koi kahaan
dil jode
aisa hai kaun yahaan
jidhar chale
humko mile thokar lagaane waale
chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale
chaliye ji bewafa hain hum
nazren churaane waale
tum bhi to kam nahin baabu
dil ke lagaane waale
