Here is the eighth and final song from “Sautela Bhai”(1962). This song is a duet song. HFGK is silent about the singers. Several youtubers who have uploaded this song describe the singers as Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

On listening to the song, it is clear that the male voice is Manna Dey. How experienced youtube uploaders cannot differentiate between Mahendra Kapoor and Manna Dey beats me. The two singers have little in common as far as their voices are concerned.

It is the female voice that creates doubts. Prakashchandra guesses that the singers are Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur. I find that the seven songs that we already have from this movie had Manna Dey’s voice in three songs and Lata Mangeshkar’s voice in two songs. Voices of Meena Kapoor, Pankaj Mitra, Anil Biswas and Mahendra Kapoor were also used in the songs of this movie.

Seeing that Pranati (the heroine) is present in the picturisation and she lip synced in two other songs in the movie in Lata Mangeshkar voice, I guess that the female voice could well be Lata Mangeshkar’s. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the female voice.

The song is picturised as a Krishn bhajan where the bhajan singers (Radheshyam, Laxmi Chhaya and Pranati) criticise a repentant Yashoda Mata (Dulaari) for abandoning Krishn. This song is a forgotten gem. It is written by Shailendra. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

with this song, all soongs of “Sautela Bhai”(1962) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Today’s song is from a ‘C’ grade stunt film Al Hilal aka The judgement of Allah- 1958.

Those readers who keep a track of old films may remember that way back in 1935, Sagar Movietone had produced a film of the same name Al Hilal. It was the first film of Mehboob Khan as a Director and the film had Kumar and Sitara Devi as the lead pair. That film was quite successful and even Baburao Patel of Film India magazine had praised not only the film but also hailed Mehboob Khan as a Diamond for Future.

Compared to the banner, the director or even the lead pair of the Sagar film, this Al Hilal of 1958 was absolutely nowhere. In the 40’s and the 50’s C grade action/stunt films were not even seen by educated audiences. The film magazines and newspapers never took notice of such ” Maar dhad ” films. These films were always shown in the dilapidated old theatres situated in labour class bastis. The audience of such stunt films used to be from lower strata of society, the daily bread earners and the low level workers. But then, this film Al Hilal-1958 produced something that amazed the whole film world !

Before I tell you more about this film, I will tell you one small story.When I was studying in school in Hyderabad, I had a classmate by the name Ramanlal Jain. he was very poor in studies and always used to be the centre of criticism of our teachers of all subjects. In every annual examination his rank used to be usually in the last 3 students. But he passed every year. When we were in the 11th standard, we all studied hard for the 12th class Board examination. Our school had a very good record in the ‘Pass’ percentage of students. Based on the history of Ramanlal Jain’s scores and studies, the school denied him entry into the 12 th class and he had to change his school. He coolly left.

In those days, very few students used to get the First Class and their names would be published in local newspapers in Hyderabad. Among the total of about 10000 students of 12th class Board Examination, hardly 20 to 30 students used to pass in First division. That year, when the results were announced, I was one of the First division students and my name was published in the newspapers. I, my family and my school were very happy.

Our school teachers and we all students were shocked to find Ramanlal Jain’s name also in the Rank holders’ list of that year, from another school. We were all astonished as to how this dull student with a poor history of success appeared in the Rank Holders’ list ! But it was true !! He had done it !!!

Same case was with the film Al Hilal-1958. It was just another C grade stunt film, about which not many people even knew, which was being shown in the old city cinema hall in a poor Basti. But it gave an unprecedented and unexpected shock when one of its songs – ‘ Hamen to loot liya milke husnwalon ne’ became an All India craze and very popular in no time. This qawwali became so popular that in almost every Irani hotel the record was played repeatedly, on public demand. Hundreds of the records were sold daily and the film’s name also became famous forever.

The first famous qawwali was from the film Zeenat-” Aahen na bhari…..” in 1945. The second was from the film Khidki-1948, ” Kismat hamare saath hai’. These two popular qawwalis were not sung by any Qawwal, whereas Al Hilal qawwali was sung by a professional qawwal- Ismail Azad. He had earlier sung a qawwali in the film Taj aur Talwar-56 and Jahaji Lootera-57. The fallout of the popularity of this qawwali was the rise of the other qawwals like Yusuf Azad qawwal and Jani babu qawwal as well as Shakila Bano Bhopali.

The qawwali of the film Jahaji Lootera-57 was filmed on actor Shaikh and the Al Hilal qawwali also was filmed on him. One interesting point was that this qawwali was in two parts and the second part was shown after the words THE END appeared on the screen and the audience got up to leave. Shaikh came on the screen and asked them to sit to listen to the second part of the song !.

Sheikh was a Comedy actor in the 40s,50s and the 60s. He has acted in 170 films,as per Muvyz stats. He sang 10 songs in 8 films as per HFGK (Daulat ki duniya-47, Fifty Fifty-UR, Nakli Baap-49, Jiya Raja-49, Dushman-50, Simba-51, Hatimtai-56 and Naagmani-57).

He was essentially a B and C grade film comedian, so his name is not known to most people. Sanjeev Narvekar’s book, “Eena meena deeka” gives very little information about him. In his hey-days, he was popular in a class of people who were regulars of stunt,fantasy and action films. He was a fixture in almost all Wadia films. He was the main on screen singer in the iconic qawali, “Humen to loot liya milke husn walon ne ‘ from the film Al Hilal-58.

He directed 2 films, Shahnaaz-48 and Mr.Toofan-63. He started his career in Hindi films with Pakke badmash-39. Before that he had acted in a Marathi film “Netaji Palkar-39″by Bhalji Pendharkar (info from CITWF). His last film was Aadamkhor-85. No information is available on his life anywhere.

The cast of the film was Shakila, Mahipal,Hiralal, Shaikh, Nasreen, Sulochana, Indira, Maqbool, Gulab and many others. The story of the film was-

This was a story in an Arab country. King Kehran (Heeralal) wants his subjects to worship only him and not Allah. Those who believed in Allah were tortured and killed too. mahipal is one of his slaves and a believer in allah. Shakila is a poor knife seller. In the first of the film shakila moves about as a boy. She stays in the jungle and is a believer too.
The king gets a son, but the astrologer tells him that the son will become a believer. As the son grows he is also tortured. Finally the son is left in the jungle to die. Shakila finds him and brings him up. Mahipal is exposed as a believer and escapes from the palace along with his friend Fazlu (Shaikh) to the jungle. here he meets Shakila, both fall in love and sings some songs. Fazlu also loves Nasreen, another girl in the village.
Finally there is a fierce attack on the king, wherein Shakila kills the king. The prince is crowned as the new king. Shakila and mahipal unite. Shaikh and Nasreen also unite and all ends well.

Nasreen who acted in this film was the youngest sister of Shakeela. The younger sister was Noor-who married Johnny Walker and retired from films. Nasreen also worked in this film and after leaving films, got married and settled down. Only Shakila continued in films. There was another actress Nasreen who had acted in the film Shahjahan-46 and Eik Roz-47. She was the daughter of actress Anwari and Music Director Rafiq Ghaznavi. Her real name was Zarine. She too left films, married Agha Liyaqat and settled in London and Dubai. Her daughter was Salma Agha.

The qawwali “Hamen to Loot liya” became the 5000th song on this Blog, jointly written by three posters and posted on 13-11-2011. Today’s song is a duet sung by Suman Kalyanpur and Manna Dey. It is filmed on Shakila and Mahipal on the screen. This is the 4thsong rom the movie here. It was composed by Bulo C Rani and the lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Road No. 303’ (1960).

This film was special in many respects. Let’s start with it’s title. Among the total of 3240 Talkie films made in the first 30 years of Hindi films (1931-1960), only 19 Hindi films had titles which actually had numbers in their Titles. The first one to have a numerical figure in its title was Miss 1933 (1933) and the last one to have it was today’s film Road No. 303 (1960). Just for information of our readers, there were 7 such film titles in the 1930’s (total films 924), only 4 such film titles in the 1940’s (total films 1191) and 8 such film titles in the 1950’s (total films 1125). There were hundreds of film titles having figures in words, like ‘Ek Thi Ladki’, ‘Do Gunde’, ‘Teen Batti Char Rasta’ etc. but numbers in titles were a novelty.

Secondly, this was the first Hindi film of the music director C Arjun. He started by giving music to the first Sindhi film after the Independence – ‘Abana’ in 1958. (The first Sindhi film ever in India was ‘Ekta’ (1940), made by Wadia Movietone, directed by Homi Wadia).

Thirdly, this was the first and the only Hindi film in which Mehmood and Shubha Khote were the leading pair. In all other films, they were in the side roles.

‘Road No. 303’ was made by Mahesh Pictures, Bombay and it was directed by Dharam Kumar. He was born on 26-11-1919 and had directed 14 Hindi films. His first film as a director was ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950) and his last film was ‘Truck Driver’ (1970). Dharam Kumar expired on 28-7-1993, in his 75th year. The 6 songs of this film were written by Naksh Lyallpuri (3) and Jaan Nissar Akhtar (3).

‘Road No.303’ is truly an obscure movie as no information is available about it on any internet site. This name too is not known to many. The film was produced by Ratankumar and Bhikhubhai. The story of film is….

Manohar (Maqbool) is murdered and his body is thrown on the Road No. 303 in the dead of the night. Ramesh (Mehmood), his younger brother who loved him much is devastated. Manohar was an honest Police officer.

Ramesh is in love with Sadhana (Shubha Khote), a young and educated daughter of Seth Deen Dayal (KN Singh) . Seth ji is a well known philanthropist rich man, running destitute homes for widows and orphans.

Ramesh starts finding out about the cause of murder and he learns that soon Manohar was to arrest a big person in society for some serious crime. Munna (Bhagwan) , a small-time pickpocket and a friend of Ramesh, also helps him . Sona (Helen) a dancer in ‘Red Lite Cafe’ is also in love with Ramesh and helps him.

Meanwhile there are attempts to kill Ramesh too. Finally, with the help of Sona, Munna, and Sadhana, Ramesh finds out that the murderer is nobody else but Seth Deen Dayal who runs a racket of trading women and children to Arab countries.

Sadhana is very firm and in the end Seth ji is arrested for murder of Manohar and for his illegal work.

The debutante composer C Arjun was one of those composers who never got what he really deserved. In spite of giving music to 22 films, he always remained a “lesser known music Director”. His best known film was ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ released in the same year (1975) as film ‘Sholay’ of Ramesh Sippy and it did an unprecedented business amongst the mythological films.

His full name was ARJUN PARMANAND CHANDNANI and he was born in Karachi on 1-9-1933. After partition his family settled in Baroda. He inherited his musical talent from his father who was a singer. He became assistant to another Sindhi music director Bulo C Rani. He started his career with composing for a Sindhi film ‘Abana’ (1958) (first Sindhi film in Independent India).

His first Hindi film was ‘Road No. 303’ in 1960. Off and on he got films under nondescript banners with B/C grade cast. That he created memorable music nevertheless did not do much to change his fortunes. His teaming with the lyricist Jaan Nisar Akhtar would rank at par with the best of Sahir Ludhianvi’s composed by SD Burman or Roshan. He also composed a number of non film songs.

He gave music to 22 Hindi films, besides films in Gujarati, Sindhi and Haryanvi languages. Some of his films were, ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’, ‘Punarmilan’, ‘Ek Saal Pehle’, ‘Jai santoshi Maa’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’, ‘Karwa Chauth’, ‘Aankh Ka Taara’, ‘Lambu In Hong Kong’, ‘Ustad Pedro’, ‘Mangu Dada’, ‘Gunahon Ka Mandir’, ‘Nawab Sahib’, ‘Kanoon Aur Mujrim’, ‘Hamari Kahani’, ‘O Mere Jaane Jigar’ etc. His film ‘Susheela’ (1966), which was incomplete, was completed and releasd as ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ in 1977 in which “Bemurawwat Bewafa Begaana e Dil Aap Hain” song sung by Mubarak Begum and “Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein” sung by Talat and Rafi became very popular.

I still remember the interview of C Arjun by Ameen Sayani on radio in Binaca Geetmala program, a long time ago about the story behind as to how a popular song was written by Indivar and how it was tuned, for the film ‘Punarmilan’ (1964).

C Arjun said – “One day we (both me and Indivar) were travelling in a BEST bus while returning home in the evening, from the recording studio. Both of us were sitting on the same seat and the bus was packed full with passengers. After 2 or 3 stations Indivar saw that a young and very beautiful girl boarded the bus and she came near our seat standing in the middle amongst other standing passengers. Indivar was repeatedly looking at her time and again. After 4 or 5 minutes, Indivar asked me to leave my seat and offer it to the pretty girl standing besides us.

After a bit of hesitation I agreed and gave my seat to her. To my surprise, Indivar didn’t talk to her even once while she was sitting beside him for about 20 -25 minutes before she de-boarded the bus at one of the stops in our way. When I asked Indivar why he didn’t talk to her?. He replied today he shall de-board the bus with me at my residence bus stop & answer me when we shall reach my home. We de-boarded the bus at my residence. On reaching home Indivar said “My dear Arjun, thank you so much for offering your seat to her and letting her sit beside me and I have imagined and thought of some lines while she was standing and then sitting beside me”. Indivar there and then spoke those lines to me and they were “PAAS BAITHO TABIYAT BAHAL JAYEGI, MAUT BHI AA GAYI HO TO TAL JAYEGI”.

And then Indivar wrote this whole song there and then in about one hour and asked me to compose its tune the same night. We sat together after our dinner and composed its tune before we went to our beds late at night. Indivar stayed with me that night and left for his home next day morning.”

C Arjun died on 30-4-1992, due to a massive heart attack when he was recording a non-filmi Sindhi song in the Sterling Studios, Mumbai.

Sometime back there was a story that C Arjun started his career with acting and that he was the hero in film ‘Malhar’ (1951).

There is irrefutable proof available on Cinegems and Cineplot, that the hero of ‘Malhar’ was none other than Arjun Bakshi, and NOT C Arjun, MD.

Arjun Bakshi who had acted in some other films, including ‘Daku ki Ladki’, and Naujawan etc, was later a screenplay writer in Hindi films. He is the father of the actress Jyoti Bakshi (of ‘Bullet’, with Dev Anand). Jyoti and her father separated later and Jyoti had a very pathetic and sad demise, a few years back.

Few years back one senior member from RMIM group had reported that he had met Arjun Bakshi in a Music shop in Canada in 2003. And as written above, C Arjun had died in 1992. So, once for all it is clear, once again, that C Arjun the composer and Arjun the actor were two different persons. In addition, C Arjun’s nephew – Shyam Chandnani, who is in Dubai appeared in a music related Blog- Songs of Yore and commented that C Arjun had never ever acted in any film or visited Canada, in his lifetime. That was another final confirmation.

This film was only the second film – after ‘O Tera Kya Kehna’ (1959), in which Mehmood and Master Bhagwan came together. Today’s song is filmed on these two comedians. Though this was C Arjun’s first film, he had used Rock and Roll music for his songs. In today’s song he has tried a jugalbandi in Rock n Roll music with Bharat Natyam Music. Two duets were filmed on the lead pair. This song was quite popular in 1960 and many readers might remember it also.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that this song was not yet featured on the Blog. Perhaps, it was waiting for me to write on it. Enjoy this duet featuring Rafi and Manna Dey.

‘Raahgeer’ (1969), is a production from Geetanjali Chitradeep, Calcutta. It was directed by Tarun Majumdar. The movie has Biswajeet, Nirupa Roy, Asit Sen, Sandhya Roy, Vasant Chowdhury, Shashikala, Padma Chauhan, Anwar Hussain, Pahari Sanyal, Master Prasenjit, Ifthekar, Kanhaiyyalal, Chaman Puri, Savita Chatterjee, Ram Avtar, Rashid Khan, CS Dubey and others in it.

Here is what our dear Arun ji has mentioned in brief about this film while commenting on the song-post of the song “Janam Se Banjaara Hoon Bandhu

Atul ji,

First of all, this is a production of GITANJALI CHITRADEEP, CALCUTTA.
The name of Hemant Kumar’s production house was GEETANJALI PICTURES, BOMBAY. So there is every possibility that this may be a home production, in some way or the other, of Biswajeet.
I remember having seen this film halfway, in the theatre, as it was very much boring.
Directed by Tarun Mujumdar, its cast was, Biswajeet, Sandhya Roy, Shashikala, Padma, Nirupa Roy, Kanhaiyalal, Anwar Hussain, Pahadi Sanyal, Prasanjit, Iftekhar, Asit Sen, Sabita Chatterjee etc.
The story, as I remember, was of a young man who is fond of wandering and sets out on an endless journey. The film depicts various experiences he encounters in his travels. He does not get attached to anybody but becomes a darling of many.
Neither the story, nor the music, nor the actors were of much interest and hence no wonder the film wandered aimlessly in search of success.

NB- There seems to be no record of any major award given to Rahgir. Maybe, Bengal Govt. or critics or journalists award may have been given to it.

The movie has ten songs and lyrics for all the ten songs are penned by Gulzar. The music is composed by Hemant Kumar. Here is the list of songs this movie has.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (1961).

Generally, I like to write on films from the 30’s to the 50’s decade, which is my comfort zone. I feel homely and on friendly ground when I write about those old films. Films after 1960 are NOT a ‘ NO- NO ‘ for me, but unless I find either the film or the song interesting, I normally do not choose that song. That way and to allay any misunderstanding in our readers’ minds, let me stress here that I have written more than 200 posts on films from 1960 to 2013 also. Actually since there is still so much scope in the first 3 decades of talkie films, turning to the films of 60+ songs is not that common.

Just for my own information, I was curious about when was the last song from the 60’s discussed by me. I took out my long books wherein I first hand write my articles, backwards from my post on the 12th June 2022. I was surprised to find that my last song-post for a film of 1962 (‘Sautela Bhai’) was on 6-12-2020 ! That’s a cool gap of 176 posts in between !!

The usual question comes as to what is an ‘Old Film’ ? It all depends on the person’s age who wants to know the answer. Over a period of last so many years I got the following answer….

For a Person Aged An Old Film is From
20-30 years films of and prior to 1990
30-40 1980
40-50 1970
50-60 1960
60-70 1950
70-80 1940
80++ 1930

For youngsters of 20-30 years, songs of 1930 are antiques, 1940’s are Grandpa’s choices, 50 & 60’s are Dad’s favorites and 70 & 80’s are very old songs ! So, one can see the connection between the age and the period of film songs to label it differently !

Now coming to today’s song ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ (KPKD) was a costume/stunt drama. The title of this film has an interesting history behind it.

During the 30’s and the 40’s there was a comedian named Noor Mohammed. Based on his role as Charlie Chaplin including his dress, mustache, hat, stick, talk and walk, he was nicknamed as Charlie. There was a time when this Charlie was extremely popular all over India. He used to sing his own songs too. He became so famous and popular that films were sold in his name . He started to get special songs shot on him in almost every film – much before Johnny Walker in the 50s. He sang his own songs. He left Ranjit Studios and was the first actor to become a ‘free-lance‘ breaking the studio system. Some of his films and songs therein were famous all over India. In the film ‘Sanjog’ (1943), he sang “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai“. This line became so famous that young boys in colleges used this line for calling girls, in those days. In the film ‘Dhandhora’ (1941), he sang “Ek Do Teen Char Paanch Chhe Saat Aath Nau Dus Gyara Bara,Teri Nazar Ne Mujhe Mara“. Raj Kapoor used “Ek Do Teen Aaja Mausam Hai Rangeen” (film ‘Awaara’ (1951)) and later Madhuri Dixit’s “Ek Do Teen” (film ‘Tezaab’ (1988)) became very famous. In the film ‘Taqdeer’ (1943) he sang ”Thank You, Mention Not” and “I Am Very Very Sorry”. These too became popular.

Based on Charlie’s song “Palat, Tera Dhyan Kidhar Hai” this film’s title was finalized as ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. For reasons unknown to others, the Censor board objected to this title and asked the makers to change it. After a lot of arguments, the makers finally had to change it to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. I have seen this film. Neither the original nor the revised title had any connection with the story of the film.

This was the first and the only film directed by actor CS aka Chandrashekhar Dubey. I could not get enough information about Dubey from anywhere. He used to live somewhere in the Seven Bungalows area of Andheri west, where I have been living since long time. I used to see him along with his friends sitting in a hotel nearby sometimes. After searching a lot, I came across a short note on him by Mr. MN Sardana ji on the FB page of ‘Wo Din Yaad Karo’. For our readers, I reproduce it here after adapting and adding my information to it from my notes.

Chandrashekhar Dubey aka C Dubey was born on 4-9-1924 at Village Kannod of Dewas District in the then Central Provinces (now Madhya Pradesh). During his college education, he was very active in politics and had been in jail during the Quit India movement too. He had his quota of struggle, when he arrived at Mumbai to become someone .

Luckily he found his Godfather in film maker Amiya Chakraborty, who noticed him and took him under his wings. Dubey, became his Man Friday. He was spot boy, production executive, prompter and assistant director all rolled into one, besides doing small roles in the films made by Mars & Movies and other production Houses . His first film was ‘Devdaasi’ (1945).

Filmmaker Guru Dutt gave him the role of a doctor in ‘Mr & Mrs 55’ (1955), which got him much needed publicity. In the famous movie ‘Seema’, made by his mentor Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey was assigned the role of a street ruffian cum thief, who made the life of heroine Nutan miserable. People found Dubey quite amusing and he became a full time actor. In 1957 Amiya Chakraborty passed away suddenly due to heart attack, leaving his movie ‘Kathputli’ incomplete, which was completed by Nitin Bos. Totally dedicated to his late master Amiya Chakraborty, Dubey did not leave the company. Ajit Chakraborty took the reins of the company and made ‘Ardhangini’ in 1959 and ‘Apne Huye Paraye’ in 1964 and Dubey gave him his full support and services.

While he was established as a character actor, he now wanted to exhibit his other skills by directing a film He got a chance in 1960 to direct a light hearted entertaining movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’. It was a modest movie and had an experienced artist Anoop Kumar And a new bee Preeti Bala as lead players. Anoop Kumar had appeared in many movies in supporting roles and had done a variety of roles like hero, comedian, villain and sympathetic roles. In the 1952 movie ‘Rani’, which was made by Jupiter Pictures, Madras and directed by LV Prasad , he did a swashbuckling role of a warrior, opposite the great actress of South Bhanumathi, who was a versatile singer also.

Preeti Bala was raw and had only a faint idea about acting. Instead of changing the style of acting, she changed her name as Zeb Rehman, which did not bring any change to her destiny. She was in news during sixties when she did body double of Madhubala in few movies like ‘Half Ticket’, ‘BoyFriend’ and ‘Passport’, since Madhubala was ailing and it was not possible for her to attend the shooting. The movie ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’ had music by Gunjan. The movie, when completed and sold, faced a big hurdle, when Censor Board refused to certify the movie. Their main objection was related to the title of the film, which they found offensive and denigrating. Producer tried to justify the title, but our prude and adamant Censor Board refused to budge and insisted on changing the title. Since publicity material including lobby cards were already printed, film makers reluctantly renamed the movie as ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. The movie when released in 1961, did not do good for any one and all those connected with the movie were disappointed. Since the movie had flopped, it poured cold water on the ambition of music composer Gunjan, director Dubey and the lead players. Producers duo Nanda and Gupta after losing substantial money downed the shutter of their company.

CS Dubey was a good character actor. He acted in 196 films. His last film was ‘Antim Nyay’ (1993). He died on 28-9-1993, but after his death, his 8 films were released – the last one being ‘Yaar Meri Zindagi’ (2008).

(Thanks to Mr. M.N.Sardana ji).

The film’s music director was Gunjan. Who was Gunjan? Most people do not know that Gunjan was another name under which singer/composer GM Durrani gave music. As Gunjan he also gave music to film ‘State Express’ (1961). Earlier in his career, he gave music to films like ‘Angoori’ (1943), ‘Vijayalaxmi’ (1943) and ‘Dhadkan’ (1946) under his real name.

The cast of the film was Anoop Kumar, Preeti Bala (aka Zeb Rehman), Durga Khote, Daljit, Iftikhar, Majnu, Polson, Dalda, Jeevankala etc.

‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’ was truly an obscure movie. It was clearly a B grade film with the appropriate star cast. The Hero Anoop kumar was in double role in this film (as if one Anoop was not enough !).

The film was produced by Balendra Gupta and NC Nanda, under the banner of Movie Hits (indicating hopes), and was directed by CS Dubey or Chandrashekhar Dubey, a small time actor in those days. Dubey was a veteran, having started his career from the 30s and he used his knowledge of old films in this.The original title of this film was ‘Zara Palat Ke Dekh’.

Later on the title was changed to ‘Kismat Palat Ke Dekh’. However neither the audience ‘zara bhi palat ke dekh’ nor their kismet changed jara bhi !

The lyricists were Akhtar Romani and Sadiq Nazmi. Story and screenplay by Sri Prakash and Dialogues by Suman Romani.

The story of the film was….

The story had nothing remarkable and it was highly predictable. Prince Kunwar (Anoop Kumar) is studying in UK when his father dies and the king appoints him as his successor, instead of his elder brother Samsher (Daljit), who is a gone case, indulging in wine, women and gambling. Kunwar starts for India. Samsher wants to kill him. Loyal Diwan ji and another sardar, Mansingh are escorting Kunwar when they are attacked. Diwanji is killed, Kunwar is injured seriously and thrown in a river presuming dead, but Mansingh escapes. Mansingh, one day finds Badloo (Anup Kumar), who looks same to same as Kunwar. Mansingh does not know that he is a barber. Mansingh makes him the Kunwar and brings him to the capital of Kingdom. Princess Kiran (Preeti Bala) who is engaged to Kunwar suspects Badloo.

The real Kunwar is saved by people of Imlipur as Badloo and brought to his ‘mother’ (Durga Khote). Kunwar understands the situation and keeps quiet till opportune moment comes. Finally he contacts Kiran and they together expose the impostor prince, kill Samsher in a fight and reunite themselves as a reward.

In the early 60s, when the Film industry was churning out excellent movies after movies, it was hardly expected that such a film would succeed. The film got what it deserved. A peaceful rest in the cans !

The mukhda remains the same as the original title of the film “Zara Palat Ke Dekh”.

HFGK mentions Manna Dey and chorus, but the voice of S Balbir is also there in the song.

Today 1st May’2022 is the one hundred and third birth anniversary of legendary Singer Manna Dey (01.05.1919-24.10.2013). As a tribute to him, I am presenting a motivational song sung by him from the movie ‘Prahaar-1991’.

‘PRAHAAR: The Final Attack’ was a film Produced by Sudhakar Bokade and Directed by Nana Patekar. The star cast includes Nana Patekar, Dimple Kapadia, Madhuri Dixit, and Gautam Joglekar who played the second lead with Madhuri Dixit. Prominent Stage artist Shri.Habib Tanvir played the role of Gautam’s father.
The film was produced under the banner of ‘Divya Films combine’. Its cinematography was done by Debu Deodhar.

‘Prahaar’ had as many as three songs, and the one under discussion today has three versions sung two by Manna Dey (happy and sad) and one by Kavita Krishnamurthy. The lyrics are written by Mangesh Kulkarni, and music is scored by Laxmikant–Pyarelal.

I had watched this movie during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan) and I liked it very much. I watched this movie at least three-four times.

The movie highlights many issues within our society and for me this is one of the bests movies of Hindi Cinema. I will not go into the details of the story of the movie as it is better to watch and feel than to read about this movie. I wish that this film should be watched by everyone in India and introspect ourselves and our surroundings and the happenings around us… for a better India.

All the actors and actresses acting in the movie have delivered a power packed performance.

A detailed article about this movie has been written by our Respected Shri Sadanand ji while presenting the song Dhadkan zara ruk gayee hai.

Today’s song has three versions and all of them are being presented here. This song is sung by Manna Dey and Kavita Krishnamurthy. The highly motivational lyrics are by Mangesh Kulkarni, and the divine music is given by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Let us listen to this wonderful song …

Today’s song is from a C grade Stunt film- Flying Ranee-1959.

This song was quite popular in its time and indeed it is a very melodious song. Only thing is that the tune of the song is such that you feel like listening to an O P Nayyar song. In the late 50’s, OPN had given several foot tapping and melodious songs. But such a song coming from Music Director B N Bali is very astonishing. He was not known to give such good songs. He was, however, branded as a ” Copy Cat”. In many of his songs , you feel that there was another such song already. Even today’s song is a copy of a popular OPN song.

The music for this film was given by composer B.N. Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all, let us know who this B N Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali, in the early era of Hindi films. H.C. Bali or Harishchandra Bali (20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976), the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering K L Saigal in the early 30s.

B N Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer. He sang 5 songs in 4 films – Bhikari-49, Bedard-49, Mastani-55 and Tikdambaaz-59. He even acted in 1 film – Mastani-55. He was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films. He gave music from Bedard-1949 up to Do Dilwale-1973, a total of 24 films, including one unreleased film-Bahut Door (40s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973.Though he composed music with a variety, somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary, B N Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

‘Jab un ka khayal aata hai’-sung by Rafi in Pahla pehla pyar was a copy of Rafi’s ‘Jin raaton me neend ud jaati hai’ by Hansraj Behl.
‘Sapne me saiyan tum aaya na karo’-Asha/manna Dey song was a true copy of O P Nayyar’s ‘ Ek pardesi mera dil le gaya’
‘Tu us ka kar bhala’ Rafi in Raja Vikram sang the same “Bhagwaan’ tune as in ” O duniya ke rakhwaale’ etc. etc.

When I saw this film’s title, Flying Ranee-1959, I remembered that this was the name of a train plying between Mumbai and Surat. Few years back, when we (myself, Sadanand Kamath ji and late Bharat bhai Upadhyaya ji) planned to visit Surat to meet shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji, we wanted to travel by this train, but its timing was not suitable for us.

All over the world, few selective trains are given special names like The orient Express or the Siberia special etc. Even in India also, there are many trains which have special names. Our creative minded, intelligent and genius filmmakers used these train names for some of their films. I found the following Train name films in the Hindi film index.

Punjab Mail….1939
Toofan Mail….1934 and 1950’s (UR)
Toofan Express….1938
Deccan Queen….1936 and 1962
Howrah Express….1961
Flying Express….1949
Flying Ranee-1939 and 1959
Then there were also films titled Miss Punjab Mail….1958, Miss frontier Mail….1936 and Miss Toofan Mail….1958 and 1980.
Incidentally, there were 3 films having the word Train in their titles…. The Train….1970, Train to Pakistan….1997 and Train Dakaiti….1984.

The cast of the film was Samar Roy,, Prakash, Nishi, Naazi, Heera Sawant, Ram Singh, W M Khan, Tun Tun, Jeevankala etc etc. I have no information on Samar Roy. I only know that he first acted in Bangla films. In 1949, he first came to Bombay and acted in film ” Swayamsiddha”-1949, opposite Shanta Apte. It was her last Hindi film, produced by her. I am not sure, but I believe, this film was also made in Bangla language. As such the film had most Bengali actors in the cast. After this, Samar Roy acted in 42 more films in Bombay till his last film in Hindi- Akhari Kasam-1979. He returned to Calcutta and after few films, retired. In Bombay, he acted mostly in B and C grade films initially, but later on did character roles in good social films. Coincidentally, he worked in 3 Train films, namely….Toofan mail-50’s, Flying Ranee-1959 and Deccan Queen-1962. In addition, he also acted in film ….Bombay Central….1960, – a name for a Train Terminus in Bombay !

One interesting name in the cast is Ram Singh. The actor Ram Singh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he did Hero’s and Villain’s role in many films. .His entry in films and life story is very interesting.

During the 1942 ‘ Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated Hostels. Two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Dwivedi – who later on became well known as Kavi Pradeep- and the other was Ram Singh- who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall, fair and handsome. V. Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. His family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved, when he never returned.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! There he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and enquired. The officials brought out their own son- Ramsingh before them !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the Police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich Zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (U.P.), in 1920. After graduating, while doing his M.A. he joined films. His first film was Ramshastri-44, then came Chand-44, Lakhrani-45 and Hum ek hain-46….all Prabhat films. While in Prabhat, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they gave him roles in almost every film..

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with Heroine Ranjit Kumari ( real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he had 4 children.

Ramsingh played Hero, Villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films were, besides 4 Prabhat films, Gaon-47, Shaheed-48, Khidki-49, Aparadhi-50 ( He was the Hero, opposite Madhubala), Sargam-50, Sangram-50, Shrimati ji-52, Jaal-52, Baaz-53 etc etc. In his later career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and Mythologicals. His last film was Sati Sulochana-69. ( 2 more films Veer Chhatrasal-71 and Mere Bhaiya-72 were released after he left films).

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit kumari and children in 1970 and started doing Agriculture. The U.P. Chief Minister H.N.Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. Bahuguna, to help him, immediately established ” U.P. Film Corporation ” and made Ramsingh its Chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the fields again.

Ramsing started drinking, against medical advice and died in 1984, in his village.

Let us now enjoy the copied tune in today’s song…..


Song- Sapne mein sainyya tum aaya na karo (Flying Rani)(1959) Singers- Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyricist- Najmi Kanpuri, MD- B N Bali

Lyrics

sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
haye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

o ho sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

meri gali aake tum jaane nahin paaoge
jaaoge to sainya tum bada pachhtaaoge
jaaoge to sainya tum bada pachhtaaoge
dil leke tum itraaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

hey sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

ankhiyaan milaai hai to mukhda na modna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna
dil mein basaaya hai to dil ko na todna

hey mohe chhup chhup ke sataaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo
oye oye gori mohe nakhre dikhaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

paas bula lo mohe apna bana lo
dil mein bithha lo ji
aankhon mein chhupa lo

aankhon mein chhupa lo
aha ha door door rahke tarsaaya na karo
dil ko lagaake pachhtaaya na karo

oh sapne mein sainya tum aaya na karo
aake mohe chhed chhed jaaya na karo

Blog Day :

4987 Post No. : 16875

Today’s song is from a ‘1957’ movie namely ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’.

I have mentioned it in my earlier articles that I had the good fortune of being able to watch many black and white movies in my childhood. Recalling those days is a source of great nostalgia for me. ‘Janam Janam Ke Phere’ is one of those black and white classics that I watched in one of the weekly screening of movies at our colony club where we resided.

Yesterday I was browsing the blog looking for songs composed by S.N. Tripathi. That is when I came across this movie. I was surprised to note that this movie is yet to be ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. Three songs from the movie are still not covered on the blog.

“Janam Janam Ke Phere-1957’ (alias ‘Sati Annapurna) was directed by Manoo Desai for ‘Mukti Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Subhash Desai.

Manoo Desai also wrote this movie and editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar.

(This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.05.1957.)

This movie had Nirupa Roy, Manhar Desai, B.M. Vyas, Krishnakumari, S.N. Tripathi, Amar Pande, Amirbai Karnataki, Satish Vyas, Malay Sarkar, Kantakumari, Champaklal, Santosh Kunwar, and others.

Mahipal made a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie had nine songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by S.N. Tripathi. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The list of the songs from this movie is as given below (the earlier posts on the blog do not give this list hence I am giving those details in this post)

Sr.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Janam janam ke phere …saanjh savere sabko ghere, inse na koyi bache re Rafi, chorus 16.02.2013
02 Tu hai ya nahin bhagwan… kabhi hota bharosa kabhi hota bharam Lata, Rafi, Manna Dey 16.06.2012
03 Bhadak uthhi hai…aaja naag tohe man mein basaa loon Lata Mangeshkar 04.01.2020
04 Chaahe raat barsaat ho… raah se dharam ki hataanewaala kaun Lata Mangeshkar
05 Man ka andhiyaaraa… tan ke tamboore mein do saanson ke taar boley Manna Dey 03.06.2012
06 Rang birangi phoolon ki jhoomein re daaliyaan… kaali kaali ankhiyon ki chhalke re Pyaaliyaan Geeta Dutt, Manna Dey, chorus Being presented today
07 Aatma ki ye … zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar 25.12.2008
08 Baaj rahi shehnaayi dekho baaj rahi shenaayi Lata Mangeshkar
09 Ghanan ghanan ghan baaje… aayi mohan milan ki bela Shamshad Begum, Mohd Rafi, chorus 05.04.2020

From the above table we can see that this movie had made its debut on the blog on 25.12.2008. The next two songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2012’, one song was discussed in ‘2013’. After a long gap, two more songs from this movie were discussed in the year ‘2020’. That is how six songs from this movie have been discussed in a span of 14 years.

T most popular song from this movie was ‘zaraa saamne to aao chhaliye’ and this is also the song permanently associated with this movie’s name in my mind. Other songs of the movie fail to bring similar recollections, though I may have listened to them.

Today 14th March’2022 is the one hundred and nineth birth anniversary of S.N. Tripathi or Shri Nath Tripathi (14 March 1913 – 28 March 1988), the music director of this movie.

S.N. Tripathi also an actor, as well as producer and director of several movies.

Today as a tribute on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from this movie “Janam Janam Ke Phere”.

Today’s song is sung by Geeta Dutt and Manna Dey. On the screen it is Manhar Desai lip-syncing in Manna Dey’s voice. I guess that the actress lip-syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice is Krishnakumari. Several other woman artists are also present in the picturisation and they lip sync in the voice of the chorus.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs in this movie.

Let us enjoy today’s beautiful composition now …
