Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 30
——————————————————————————————

May 1st 2019. International Labour Day. Also happens to be the date when the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat came into being from the erstwhile Bombay state in the year 1960. This happened as a consequence of the States Re-organisation Act of 1956 which defined boundaries for the states within India on the basis of languages. The Bombay State, that was formed by this act, was composed of different areas where Marathi, Gujarati, Kutchi and Konkani were spoken. There was a movement since 1956, which demanded that the state of Bombay be re-organised further on the basis of areas where Gujarati and Kutchi was a major language and other where Marathi and Konkani was majorly spoken. So, The Bombay Reorganization Act was enacted in the Indian Parliament on 25th April 1960 and the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra were born on 1st May 1960. That makes Gujarat and Maharashtra 59 years old today.

On the day these two states were born Prafulla Chandra Dey turned 41. He had already made a debut in the world of film music in the ’40s with the movie “Tamanna” which had music by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and had a hit duet with Suraiya “Jago Aayee Usha Ponchi Boley Jago”. From then on he made his way into the hearts of music lovers across the country and sang in many Indian langauges – Bhojpuri,Magadhi, Maithili, Ounjabi, Assamese, Odia, Konkani, Sindhi, Gujarati, Marathi, Konkani, Malayalam and Nepali in addition to Hindi and Bengali.

He was trained in singing initially by his paternal uncle Krishna Chandra Dey and Ustaad Dabir Khan. He was credited with the success of Indian Classical Movies in Indian commercial movies. How can anyone forget the Raga-based songs “Sur na saje kya gaaun maain” or “Kaun aaya mere mann ke dwaare payal ki jhankar liye”. But his “Aao twist karien” and “ae bhai zara dekh ke chalo” were equally popular. He might have sung his first duet “subah ki pehli kiran” with Kishore Kumar in 1952 but their association on “ek chatur naar karke shingaar” is unforgettable. He has shared the recording studio with all the major singers of the time till the ’90s haing sung under the baton of most of India’s music directors beginning with K.C. Dey in “Tamanna” in 1942 to Shamir Tandon in 2006- that last song of Prafulla Chandra Dey a.k.a Manna Dey has been posted on the blog Duniya Waalon Ko Nahin Kuchh Bhi Khabar. Almost 102 music directors.

Now coming to the Blog Ten Year Challenge the songs that were posted on the 1st of May 2009 were:-
(1) Daa dir daaraa.. meri laadli(Andaaz)(1949) it had 2 comments and the movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(2) Ghadi Ghadi Mora Dil Dhadke (Madhumati)(1958) had 7 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!
(3) Masti mein chhed ke taraana koyi dil ka (Haqeeqat)(1964) had 4 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED
(4) Naach meri jaan fataafaat (Main Sundar Hoon)(1971) had 11 comments, movie is YYIIPPEEEED!!
(5) Do kadam tum bhi chalo (Ek Haseena Do Deewaane)(1972) had 6 songs with a multiple version song of which 2 are posted. (the sad Mukesh solo version is not yet posted)
(6) Haan pehli baar ek ladki mera haath pakad kar (Aur Kaun)(1979) had 12 comments and 1 out of 4 songs of this movie has been posted

The song with this post is from the 1972 romantic movie “Ek Haseena Do Diwane” which was produced by RG Films Kantibhai Zaveri and directed by S.M. Abbas. the movie had Jeetendra and Babita in the lead with Vinod Khanna as the villain. Om Prakash, Nirupa Roy, Shammi- played the elders and Johnny Walker headed a large supporting cast. The movie’s story in a nutshell as given by wikipedia-
Amar, the Nainital-based, orthodox and traditional person, obtains a degree in Engineering and re-locates to Bombay for employment. After doing so, he decides to assist his friend, Prakash, woo a wealthy and educated woman, Neeta but ends up falling in love and marrying her himself much to the chagrin of her father. Shortly after the marriage, he takes her to visit his widowed-schoolteacher mother, but she has gone on an outing. They return, and shortly thereafter arguments ensue, which escalate to such an extent that Amar assaults her, compelling her to return to her parents’ home. When she insists on a divorce – Amar refuses until and unless she lives with him for 15 days in order to create a false scenario of a happy marriage for his mother.

The song with today’s post is sung by Johnny Walker in the movie with two unknown ladies pestering him. it was a song I loved the instant I saw it. it has interlude music lifted from “Rattan”, “Pyaasa” and “Badi Behan” to add the comic element. It is written by Qamar Jalalabadi and Kalyanji Anandji were the music composers. The song brings out the full range that Manna Da was capable of.

Here I must confess that had I not attended the R.M.I.M last month i would have forgotten that Manna Dey would have turned 100 today if he had been there. Thinking of Manna Dey ……….

The Many Colors of Love #29 – The Covenants of Love
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so wrote the scribe

kar le dil ka sauda dil se
dil milta hai mushkil se
(‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’, 1957)

The transactions of heart are bound, but by just one covenant – it is the treasures of heart in exchange only for treasures of heart. No other exchange is possible, no other exchange is expected, nothing else in this whole wide world can be traded for the treasures of heart. For those who may want to, or expect to transact this exchange for something else, then they do not understand the true meaning of love.

And this thought brings up this song today. The burden of this song reiterates this maxim –

deta hai dil de
badle mein dil ke
ghe ghe ghe ghe
ghe re saaiba
pyaar mein sauda nahin

For the longest of time, I was under the impression that this song is already posted. And the reason for that is, that the song “Jhooth Bole Kauwwa Kaate” has been around on the blog for almost two years now. Being familiar with the film, one clearly remembers that these two songs are tandem songs, presented on screen one after the other – rather one flows into the next. Yes, true that Geet Kosh lists these two songs separately, but somehow in my mind, I have carried this impression that these two are a single song.

So when I posted the song by Narendra Chancalon 10th March (“Beshaq Mandir Masjid Todo“), and I reviewed the status of this film on our blog, I realized that this song is not yet posted – we are following the Geet Kosh convention. Since the day I have posted “Beshaq Mandir Masjid. . .”, it has been kind of an eagerness within, to see this movie yippeee’d here. Part of that is being surprised that songs of this film are not yet all on here.

This particular song is performed on screen by Premnath and Rishi Kapoor.  We are into about a third of the film. The two young hearts are now committed to each other, beyond any repair. Although not of legal age yet, but they want to get married and be partners for life. Premnath is non-committal, in the sense that he would do whatever makes his daughter happy. Pran, on the other hand, is a calculating and a manipulative person, eyeing this relationship with suspicion. As he sees the intensity of his son’s emotions, he decides to make a manipulative move, in an attempt to drive a wedge between the young lovers.

He asks his son to invite his beloved and her family for dinner. The young man is extremely excited. Not worldly wise as his businessman father, he thinks his father is a great man and is agreeing with his son’s wishes and choice for a life partner. Little does he know what his father has planned.

With this joyful and amiable news, he rushes to his beloved’s home, to present the invite himself. At her place, a fishermen’s neighborhood, another wedding is in progress. The ambiance is celebratory. There is singing and dancing, congratulations and the auspicious throwing of rice – in short, the mood is just right to share the supposedly wonderful news.

Without much preamble, Rishi delivers the invite to Premnath. The latter accepts forthwith with the comment that for his daughter’s happiness, he will gladly bow his head at the door of anyone, but he will never bend his knees. And to explain his comment, he breaks out in this song – that in the matters of love it is only the treasure of the heart which is to be exchanged for another treasure of heart. There is no other bargaining chip in the matters of love. Rishi readily joins in this song – the theme is so easily understood and reflected in his own mind. For him too, love is simply a give and take of the treasures of the heart.

Manna Dey starts this song, giving playback for Premnath. Shailendra Singh joins in for Rishi Kapoor. As always, it is a delight to watch a song in an RK film. The complete scenario and the ambiance are so totally focused on the song, its emotions and its renditions. Midway through the song, Dimple makes an appearance, as she is preparing for the next part of the song – yes, “Jhooth Boley. . .”. She is just there for now, not participating – but her face, her eyes are going along with the song that her beau is singing. The emotions expressed by her are so endearing, so freshly young, as she coyly and silently expresses herself in response to the lines that Rishi is performing. This small interlude is so charming, so. . . so winning. Dimple simply stole a million hearts right here in this song. Yes – you guessed it right, I too was smitten, and was in love. 🙂

One word in the lyrics had intrigued me right from the start. It is the word ‘ghe’, ‘घे’. Over the decades, this word has been presented variously and almost always erroneously. Some lyrics wrote this down as ‘khe’, ‘खे’; other places would write it down as ‘le’, ‘ले’; even today, the hindi-geet-mala web page for this song has actually written it down as ‘khel’, ‘खेल’. Wonder how they got to it, it does not even fit into the rendered metre of this line.

Once the internet was available, I had done the search for this word in Konkani language. Given that the entire scenario was a Goan neighborhood, it was only logical to seek this word in the local lingua. In Konkani, the word ‘ghe’, ‘घे’ means ‘to take’. The expression follows the lines which say

deta hai dil de
badle mein dil ke

And the young man, and the chorus responds with

ghe ghe ghe ghe
ghe re saaiba

saying – hey young man, just take this bargain, take.. take.. take.. take..  Once this meaning is known, the lyrics fall in place so beautifully.

‘Bobby’ is so close to the heart, and I mean the film, and Bobby. It appeals to an age, a mind set, and emotions – that I am never going to grow out of. It is 1973 forever.

And the talisman for life is forever – “प्यार में सौदा नहीं”.

[Editor’s Note: The initial lines of this song, which are in Konkani, have been provided by Dr Pradeep Shetty ji, in his comment below. The line is now added to the lyrics below. Thanks Dr Pradeep ji.]

Blog Day : 3857 Post No. : 14870

Blog ten year challenge (2009-2019)- Song number 5
———————————————
Today is 8 february 2019. When I looked back at the movies whose songs were covered in the blog ten years ago on 8 february 2009, I found that seven songs from seven different movies were covered on that day. Six of these movies have been YIPPEED by now. The only movie, which still has a few songs left to be covered in the blog is “Gomti Ke Kinaatre”(1972).

“Gomti Ke Kinaare”(1972) was directed by Sawan Kumar for Mercury Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Meena Kumari, Mumtaz, Sameer, Rehman, Agha, Helen, Paintal, Asit Sen, Shyama, Chandrima Bhaduri, Tuntun, Daisy Irani, Master Alankar, Randheer, Sultan Mazhar, Manorama, Rajan Haksar, Nasreen, Lalita Kumari, Madhu, Aarti, Kamal, I S Johar etc in it, with special appearances by Jalal Agha and Mukri.

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

This song is sung by Manna Dey and Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The so0ng is picturised on Agha and Helen. It appears to be a fantasy song where Agha has a Jin of Alladin Chirag. The Jin, on the wishes of Agha makes Helen appear to perform a dance. That is my understanding of the picturisation of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what is happening in this song.

The movie hade its debut in the blog on this day in 2009 when I was based at Jabalpur. Next song was posted in 2011 when I was based at Nagpur, and the third song was posted in 2017 when I was based at Izatnagar, Bareilly. Now I am covering the fourth song from the movie while I am based at another new place.

The movie has another song left in it. Have no fear. Now that I am aware that only one song is left in this movie, I will cover the song without waiting to get transferred to another place. 🙂

Today’s song is from the film Mahatma Kabir-54.

India has been attacked and ruled by outsiders for centuries. Religions other than Hinduism ruled this country and at times it was feared if our religion will become extinct. Perhaps, from this feeling Bhakti Movement started in India in one part and over the years it engulfed the entire Bharatvarsha. During this period, many saints, teachers and holy figures came up and helped the country to be strong once again in matters of religion.

The Bhakti movement refers to the theistic devotional trend that emerged in medieval Hinduism and later revolutionised in Sikhism. It originated in eighth-century south India (now Tamil Nadu and Kerala), and spread northwards. It swept over east and north India from the 15th century onwards, reaching its zenith between the 15th and 17th century.

The Bhakti movement regionally developed around different gods and goddesses, and some sub-religions were Vaishnavism (Vishnu), Shaivism (Shiva), Shaktism (Shakti goddesses), and Smartism. The movement was inspired by many poet-saints, who championed a wide range of philosophical positions ranging from theistic dualism of Dvaita to absolute monism of Advaita Vedanta.

The movement has traditionally been considered as an influential social reformation in Hinduism, and provided an individual-focused alternative path to spirituality regardless of one’s caste of birth or gender. Postmodern scholars question this traditional view and whether the Bhakti movement ever was a reform or rebellion of any kind.

India is a Multi racial, multi language and Multi religions country. It is not only one of the largest Democracies in the world, but also the largest Secular state in the world, where people from different faiths have been living together since centuries.

Many saints and religious leaders have played a significant role in keeping the mixed population of India as One Unit, when it was needed the most. A majority of Hindus, ruled by Muslim Mughals was a natural cause for social divisions, but Saints like Kabir, Surdas, Tulsidas, Ramdas, Tukaram, Ramanand, Narsi Mehta, Purandar das,Namdev, Guru Nanak Dev, Eknath, Bhakta Pundarikar, Rohidas, Mrutyunjaya and many such noble souls, did an excellent job of maintaining harmony amongst peoples of different faiths.

Kabirdas ji is one saint who is revered equally by Hindus and Muslims as well as Sikhs. He belonged, in fact, to all Indian masses.

Kabir was born near Kashi (Varanasi) to a Bramhin widow, who deserted him, for fear of social boycott. He was found and brought up by a Muslim weaver couple-Niru and Naima. Vaishnava Saint Ramanand accepted him as his disciple. Unlike some other saints, Kabir did not become a Sadhu or a Fakir, but he married and led a normal life earning from his Loom works. He had 1 son and 1 daughter also.

Kabir campaigned against social discrimination and economic exploitation. He vehemently opposed dogmas in Hinduism and Islam. His language was straight from the heart, using common vernacular words, which appealed to the masses. He was against Moorti-puja and believed in Bhakti and Sufi ideas. He was an illiterate person. His poems and Dohas were heard ,noted and written by his followers. His works are included in the Guru Granth Sahib of the Sikhs also. His dohas were in Awadhi, Brij and Bhojpuri languages. Through his philosophies, he spread the message of unity during his times. For him Ram and Rahim were the same.

While the authentic period of kabir is 1440 to 1518, there are popular legends about him living for 120 years and after death, his body turning into Flowers.

More than anything else, Mahatma Kabir is remembered for the courage of his convictions. He was a religious reformer who slashed down the orthodox bigotism of Hindus and Muslims alike. He denounced with a touch of satire, the whole apparatus of piety of the temple and the mosque, the idol and the holy water scriptures and the priests, labelling them as cults that vainly tried to replace Reality with Ritual. And thus it was that while courting bitterness from the accepted monopolists of Faith, he tried to eliminate the bitterness that then existed between Hindu and Muslims of that day. The life story of Kabir saheb is surrounded by numerous contradictory legends, on many of which reliance cannot be placed. It is therefore not to be expected that any one version of his life could satisfy all such sections of people who claim to know anything about him.

Mahatma Kabir-54 was made by New premier Films, Bombay and it was directed by Gajanan Jahagirdar. The music was by Anil Biswas and the cast included Surendra, Sulochana, Jahagirdar, Randhir, Lalita Pawar and others. The story of the film is…

The story of Mahatma Kabir begins with the unfolding of a lotus as divine light penetrates through its petals. The infant that lay within, stretched out its chubby arms to Nooru and Naima, a weaver couple of Benares, who brought him up as Kabir, their foster son. But Kabir grew into a strange boy, dreamy and listless, curious of matters spiritual, until one day he saw in Swami Ramananda his destine teacher. Eager to meet his Guru alone, he lay upon the steps of the Ganges, where Ramananda was accustomed to bath. The master trod upon his body unexpectedly and exclaimed “Ram Ram”. Accepting this as a token of the mantra of initiation, and with inspiring words of the Guru, Kabir stepped forth in pursuit of his mystic mission.

As a youth, he found his opposition from the orthodox groups increasing in the threatening proportions. His family was ostracised socially and economically, a calamity to which his foster father Nooru succumbed. All legends agree that Kabir a simple unlettered weaver relied in work as a means of living independently of any charity and earned his livelihood from the loom. The work of his hands helped him rather than hindered the impassioned meditation of his heart from the depths of which he sang the rapturous lyrics of divine love.

Kabir Saheb was constantly harassed by the Mahajan for the repayment of his foster father’s debt which on account of his economic boycott he was not able to repay. He was involved in a theft charge and presented before the Ruler of Kashi who ordered him to be whipped. The sentence was executed but Kabir smiled at the foolishness of those trying to punish him for the offence he had not committed, while the real offender on whom the lashes were actually falling cried in pain. The repentant Kashi Naresh honoured and feted Kabir and the entire ensemble shouted Kabirji ki jai. Returning home Kabir found his ancestral home attached by his Mahajan. People offered to pay off the debt but Kabir declined their offer. He thought that Ram was taking him closer to Himself by removing slowly the barriers of worldly possessions.

With the ancestral house gone, Kabir walked away to the ruins in the outskirts of the Kashi with his foster mother Naima and wife Loi. From there, this apostle of Universal Love, travelled through the length and breadth of the land and the countries beyond, spreading his gospel far and wide while his foster-mother and wife Loi suffered the privations of life. After many years he returned to Benares, where his ailing mother held her breath only to see him for the last time. Now Kabir was an old man, but much revered and still more opposed. This opposition culminated in his being presented before Sikander Lodi on a charge that he was not only an enemy of Islam but also a traitor to the throne of Delhi. Sikander referred the matters to the Kazi of Benares, who ordered him to be thrown into the Ganges tied hand and foot. The cruel sentenced was carried out, while a vast multitude, thronging the Benares Ghats looked on with throbbing hearts and streaming eyes.

As expected Kabir survives and the Kazi and Sikander bow their heads in respect. Finally when Kabir dies, his body turns into flowers and Hindus and Muslims share it for their respective last rites.

The music for this film was given by Anil Biswas. C.H.Atma, who unsuccessfully tried to become a singing star in films like Bhai sahab-54 and Bilwamangal-54, had sung a Bhajan ” Ram Ras Barse re manwa ” in this film as a playback-in Saigal style. Anil Biswas and Saigal were good friends. Whenever Saigal wanted to avoid any unwanted visitor to him, he would escape to Anilda’s home and take his afternoon siesta. Unfortunately, Saigal never sang for Anilda, though he had kept one tune ready for him. This was later used for a song by Mukesh in another film.

Not Saigal, but singers who liked Saigal, sang for Anil Biswas…like Mukeh in Pehli Nazar-45 (dil jalata hai to jalne de), Kishore kumar in film Fareb-53 ( husn bhi hai udas) and C.H.Atma in the film Mahatma Kabir-54 (Ram ras barse re Manwa).

The Hero of Mahatma Kabir was Surendra. At one time he was projected as Bombay’s answer to Calcutta’s Saigal, by Sagar Movietone. While working in Sagar and National, Anil Biswas had used Surendra’s voice in films like Jagirdar, Mahageet, Gramophone singer, Comrade, Aurat and Jawani. Sagar Movietone always tried to compete with New Theatres, Calcutta. When they made President-37, Sagar made Jagirdar-37 and when Street singer-38 was made, Sagar made Gramophone singer-38. Though Surendra was popular, he could never match Saigal. It is to the credit of Surendra, that personally he revered Saigal and never thought of competing with him.

It was Naushad, who first stopped Surendra’s singing and gave him playback of Ustad Amir khan in film Baiju Bawra-52. When he was sporadically heard in films Gharbar-53 and Gawaiya-53, Anil Biswas bloked his singing again and all songs for Surendra in film Mahatma kabir were sung by Manna Dey as playback. After this Surendra only sang in film Pati patni-66. It was rumoured that Surendra himself requested the producer to allow him to sing his last song. He did it free too !

Amirbai Karnataki , who sang in this film was also in her last phase of film singing and after Mahatma Kabir-54, she sang only one song each in 57,61,64 and 72. Thus ended her singing career.

HFGK mentions that today’s song is written by Kabir himself. However, I find that except the Mukhda ‘ Ram Rahima ‘(repeated several times till last), the antara words are from a famous song by Wajid Ali Shah- ‘ Babul mora ‘, which was used in films like The trapped-31, Nachwali-34, Street singer-38 and Shatranj ke khiladi-77.

The song by Manna Dey and Chorus is very good. As such Anil Biswas was an expert in composing chorus songs, in his films. You may find at least one or two chorus songs in most of his films.

“Khan Dost”(1976) was directed by Dulal Guha for Ramayan Chitra Mandir, Bombay. The movie had Raj Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Mithu Mukherji (new discovery), Satyen Kappu, Sulochana, Asit Sen, Jagdish Raj, Maruti, Prakash, Shekhar Purohit, Rajan Haksar, Duggal, Saminder Pande, Chandulal, Rajrani, Amar Sen, Sameer, Baby Lubna etc, with special appearances by Subhash Ghai, Jagdeep, Sundar, Leela Mishra and Yogita Bali.

The movie had three songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Khan Dost”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song is picturised as a poignant song on Shatrughan Sinha who plays a prisoner and who is seen looking back at his wasted life with regret in this picturisation. The pictorisation also shows Satyen Kappu playing a jailor and Raj Kapoor playing his subordinate.

Incidentally, Hindi movie jails look like a police station where a prisoner is seen kept behind bars in a small room. That is because Hindi moviemakers cannot differentiate between a police station and a jail. 🙂

koi zakhm kisi ka bhar sakoon
ab pachhtaaye kya hoye
meri zindagi mujhpe roye ae

kuchh bhi na kamaaya jeevan mein

wo chain kahaan se paaye
dariya bhi ye daag na dhoye

Today’s song is from film Sati Toral-47. This film was made by Laxmi Productions, Bombay and was directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal. The music was provided by a team of Hari Prasanna Das and Manna Dey. The song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Manna Dey. The lyrics were by Miss Kamal, B.A. This was a pseudonym of Kavi Pradeep. At that time, he was under contract with Bombay Talkies and could not use his real name . Under this Pen name, he wrote lyrics for four films, namely Kadambari-44, Amrapali-45, Sati Toral-47 and Veerangana-47. Incidentally, all these films were directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal.

Nandlal was born on 15-3-1907 at Bardoli in Surat. His father was Administrative Officer in Kohinoor films. He started his career by joining it in 1924. He assisted Chandulal Shah(1926-29) and also directed silent and Talkie films for Ranjit from 1929 to 1933. Nandlal left the job and went to Europe on tour. On his return he joined Imperial company(34-36) and directed some remakes of silent films of Sulochana into Talkie films. For one year-1937- he went to Madras and ran a Laboratory also.

His first Talkie film as a Director was Pardesi Preetam-33 and last was Akeli mat jaiyo-63. Both were Ranjit films. Due to his death in 1961, Akeli mat Jaiyo was delayed and completed by Chandulal Shah himself. Nandlal directed, in all, 24 films-5 Silent and 19 Talkie films. Some of his well known films were Indira M.A.-34, Bambai ki billi-36, Sati Toral-47, Sanam-51, Anarkali-53 and Nagin-56. (adapted from indiancine.ma)

Music Director Hari Prasanna Das or H.P.Das was born in Chitgaon, East Bengal, in 1905. He was a Bengali. He was assistant to Pankaj Malik in films Dushman and Kapal Kundala-1939. He gave music to Bangla film ‘ Nimai Sanyasi’-40, in which he gave singing opportunity to 20 year old young Hemant Kumar. His first Hindi film as a MD was New India Films’ Blood Feud (or Josh-E-Inteqam)- 1935. His other films were Mohabbat-43, Meena-44, Kadambari-44, Mazdoor-45, Begum-45, Insaaf-46, Veerangana-47, Sati Toral-47 and Hum bhi insaan hai-48. He died on 26-9-1989.

The cast of the film was Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Sankata Prasad, Jeevan, Badri prashad, Rehana and others. Sankata Prasad was the elder brother of more famous character actor Kanhaiyalal, who entered film line first as a Lyricist only. Born in Banares in 1903, Sankata came to Bombay and joined Sagar Film company in 1929. From the beginning, he was a fixture in almost every silent and Talkie film of Sagar Film company, Sagar Movietone, National Studios and lastly Amar pictures. After the last connection, he became a free lancer. To be noted is a fact that Sankata Prasad is the only actor who worked in all 3 First Talkie films of Sagar Movietone, namely Veer Abhimanyu, Romantic Prince and Abul Hasan. His last film was Do Mastane-58. He acted in 65 films,in all.

Film Sati Toral -47 was based on a Folk Tale of Gujarat. Folk Tales are stories passed through generations by telling. They are built around Fairy Tales, Tall tales, Trick tales, Myths and Legends. The base of Folk tales is a true historical event , person or a story. Folk tales of loving couples have been very popular and have been subjects on which films in almost every language are made. Stories of Heer Ranjha, Mirza Sahiban,Sassi Punnu, Sohni Mahiwal, Momal Rano, Dhola Maru,Prithviraj Sanyogita, Bajirao mastani, Laila Majnu, Salim Anarkali, Shahjehan Mumtaz Mahal etc. are famous folk tales of lovers and films are made on them.

Similarly, Mythology and religious books provide plenty of scope for Folk tales. Several films are made in several languages on the folk tales of Satis in Hindu religion. Actually, 44 Talkie films are made, whose Titles contain the word ‘Sati’. The more popular Folk tales are on Sati Anusuya, Parvati, Ahilya, Anjani, Madalasa, Narmada, Mahananda, Pingala, Renuka, Savitri, Seeta, Sulochana, Toral, Vaishalini, Vijaya and Vimala to quote a few. Maximum 7 films are made on Sati Anusuya. As if only Sati is not enough, there are films like Mahasati Anusuya, Behula,Madalasa,Maina Sundari, Savitri, Tulsi and Tulsi Vrinda. You really must appreciate the creativity of Hindi film makers.

Like lovers and Religious persons, there are folk tales of Historical persons too, Like Rana Pratap ( and his Horse Chetak), Akbar, Shivaji, Amar singh Rathod, Razia Sultan, Chandbibi, Jhansi ki Rani, Birbal and Tenali Raman. Films have been made on most of these too.

Coming back to Film Sati Toral-47, I have not seen this film in Hindi or Gujarati, So, I was looking for the story of Toral. I found one on Wiki. There is a slightly different ( in details) story written by Amrit Ganger ji, the famous author in English and Gujarati on cinema and history. He has won the Gujarat Sahitya Academy Award too. This story is available on tellmeyourstory.in, for those who are interested.( I am happy to note here that I know Mr. Gangar and he has gifted me his latest book ” Walter Kaufmann in India 1934 – 1946″ ). So, here is the Sati Toral story from Wikipedia…

” Jesal, a young Kutchi Rajput, was a dreaded dacoit.
His brother’s wife once chided him that if he was truly brave, he should prove it by stealing Toral, an extraordinary mare belonging to a Saurashtra king. In the process of stealing Toral, Jesal’s hand got caught in a nail and his agonised cries brought the king running outside.

Asked what he wanted, Jesal said “Toral”, not knowing that the queen too had the same name. The king, a devout daani (donor) who had sworn never to disappoint anyone, gave him three Torals – his queen, the mare and a sword by that name. But on the boat journey back home, Jesal realised that Toral was not an ordinary woman.

He was tormented by guilt at having taken away someone who, out of loyalty, did not even question her husband’s decision. It is said that the enlightened company of Queen Toral, remembered in Gujarati literature as a devotional poet who composed and sang songs, transformed Jesal completely and the two began spreading the message of God.

Their inseparable companionship as teacher and disciple is talked about, but in cautious tones. No one, not even the local scholars, wants to discuss the Jesal-Toral alliance as a man-woman relationship. “Even the Gujarati film Jesal-Toral did not suggest any such angle,” recalls photographer Vinay Thacker, who started his career in 1976 by selling photos of the twin samadhis outside the shrine.

However, people do accept their unusual affinity, which even death couldn’t change. It is said that when Jesal undertook samadhi, he called out to Toral from his grave to join him. Toral, who was travelling, heard his voice, came back to Anjar and immediately took samadhi.
Toral, the mare, too was buried outside the temple. A green and magenta chaddar now covers the equestrian grave. The destroyed roof of the shrine has been temporarily replaced with an asbestos sheet. ”

Today’s song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and Manna Dey, with Chorus. HFGK does not indicate names of singers for this song, but the voices are unmistakable. This song is in Amirbai’s song list. Prof. Yadav, in his book ” फिल्म संगीतकार – सुवर्णयुगवाले” also mentions these two names for this song. This is quite a good song. “Sati Toral”(1947) makes its debut in the blog with this song.

Missing Films of 1960s – 79
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The 1960s missing films train continues to chug along. 🙂

In this episode, we bring on board a very obscure film from 1964 – ‘Teen Dost’. The film itself is quite forgotten and the songs of this film are quite a rarity. So far only one record of this film has appeared in public domain, meaning only two songs of this film are available, out of the five songs listed in the Geet Kosh.

The film is directed by Joseph Taliath, for a banner which is simply named as Talkies, from Madras. The available list of actors is very limited – Anand, Hemlata, Ashokan, Kamini, and Ramdas. All songs of this film are written by Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by TR Papa – a name that is completely obscure, and appears for the first time on our blog.

An exchange between lovers. No video clips are available. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers, who may have seen this film, to please add more information if available, about this song and this film.

A lively song, listen and enjoy.

हाए तूने किया मेरा दिल चोरी बालमा
हाँ हो गई बालमा
रे मैं तोरी बालमा
हाए तूने किया मेरा दिल चोरी बालमा

कितनी ही बातें कहना चाहूँ रे॰॰ए॰॰ए
लेकिन ना मैं तुझसे कह पाउन रे॰॰ए॰॰ए
कितनी ही बातें कहना चाहूँ रे॰॰ए॰॰ए
लेकिन ना मैं तुझसे कह पाउन रे॰॰ए॰॰ए
दिल देना जानूँ मैं
ये क्योंकर मानूँ मैं
ओ गोरी छोड़ के आ जा ऊंचे महलों को
हो गई बालमा
रे मैं तोरी बालमा
हाए तूने किया मेरा दिल चोरी बालमा

तू ज़रा देख हमें बोल के
जान भी दे दें तेरे प्यार में
दिलदार बढ़ के हम से जानेमन
ना मिल सकेगा इस संसार में
ना हमको यूं तड़पा
ना मुझको यूं भरमा
मन क्यों तुझसे घबराए’
मैं क्या बोलूँ ज़ालमा
हो गई बालमा
रे मैं तोरी बालमा
हाए तूने किया मेरा दिल चोरी बालमा
हो गई बालमा
रे मैं तोरी बालमा
हाए तूने किया मेरा दिल चोरी बालमा
