My God ! This is my 900th post on the Blog !

I just can’t believe it. I feel like having written my First post just the other day. How time flies !

But this also means that I have enjoyed writing posts on this Blog. It has been exactly 8 years that I have been writing posts, primarily on old time films, songs and the people connected with them. My first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, when I was 72 year old. At the end of the 8 years period, I have 900 articles on my name and I am 80 years old.

When my first post appeared here on 1-10-2012, I had already posted 400 comments, film reviews and information tit bits on old films on the Blog. With so much of information, it was expected by Atulites that someday I will write posts. Personally. I had never thought of that. There is a story behind how my posts started appearing on this Blog.

At the end of September 2012, one of my friends sent me a song from the film Savitri-1937. I was quite excited to get such a rare song. Savitri-37 was the first Mythological film by Bombay Talkies and also their popular Hero Ashok Kumar ( later he acted in one more Mythological film ” Uttara Abhimanyu”-46. Thank God he never acted in another Mythological film ! He was a perfect misfit in them.). I wrote to Atul ji that I had that song and suggested that he should post it. I volunteered to provide the necessary details of the film etc. He wrote back asking me to send him the information on that song. Enthusiastically, I wrote a long essay-like post about the film, song, story etc. and sent it to him, so that he should post the rare song.

Next day i.e. on 1-10-2012, I got an email from Atul ji that he has posted the write up on film Savitri song, as my Post. I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly, I was thrilled too ! My post and on this Blog ? How sweet ! By evening, there were 36 comments on the post. Most Atulites welcomed my step of becoming a post contributor. I was really overwhelmed. Then I decided, anyway I was in the Swimming Pool, so why not enjoy swimming ?

Thus started my journey of 900 posts. All the credit goes to our Leader- ATUL JI. His encouragement, motivation and help from time to time was an asset for me. Atul ji is not expressive about the good deeds he does, but I am indebted to him. I learnt using the Computer when I was past my 70 years of age. So, there used to be many mistakes in my typing the articles like in using the upper/lower cases, use of Capitals, Punctuation marks, construction of sentences etc etc. But Atul ji and Sudhir ji stretched their tolerance limits to maximum and accepted me as I was. Since 2018 onwards, I conscientiously made changes in my writing, checking the article for mistakes, doing corrections before sending it etc. I also changed the type of the script Font that I was using, for more clarity of reading and today, I feel, my writings are far better than earlier times. Sudhir ji’s help has been particularly useful in the last 8 years. Thank you, ATUL JI and SUDHIR JI, for making me what I am today in the Blogosphere and amongst the like minded people of the Internet, Facebook etc.

My 800th post was on 29-9-2019. The 900th post too is in September. Thanks to all my readers, friends, Group Atulites and well wishers.

Today’s song is from the film Malati Madhav-1955. This is a story from the Sanskrit play ‘Malti Madhav’ written by Bhavbhuti. Wikipedia has this to say about Bhavbhuti and the story of Malati Madhav….

Bhavabhuti was an 8th-century scholar of India noted for his plays and poetry, written in Sanskrit. His plays are considered the equal of the works of Kalidasa. Bhavabhuti was born in Padampura, Vidarbha, in Gondia district, on the Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh border. His real name was Srikantha Nilakantha, and he was the son of Nilakantha and Jatukarni. He received his education at ‘Padmapawaya’, a place some 42 km South-West of Gwalior. Dayananidhi Paramahansa is known to be his guru. He composed his historical plays at ‘Kalpi’, a place on the banks of river Yamuna.

He is believed to have been the court poet of king Yashovarman of Kannauj. Kalhana, the 12th-century historian, places him in the entourage of the king, who was defeated by Lalitaditya Muktapida, king of Kashmir, in 736 AD.

The play is set in the city of Padmavati. The king desires that his minister’s daughter Malati marry a youth called Nandana. Malati has been in love with Madhava ever since she saw him and drew his portrait. Madhava reciprocates, and draws a portrait of her in turn. Malati suspects her father’s motives in falling in with the King’s plans for her. A side plot involves the lovers’ friends Makaranda and Madayantika. The latter is attacked by a tiger, and Makaranda rescues her, getting wounded in the process. After numerous travails, all ends well, with the two couples uniting. According to the renowned Sanskritist Daniel H.H. Ingalls, the Malatimadhava is a work that combines love and horror with a felicity never again equaled in Sanskrit literature.

Today’s song is sung by Malati Pande and chorus. Malati Pande is one of my most favourite marathi singers. Her Bhavgeets in the 50’s decade were extremely popular in Maharashtra and with all the Marathi people wherever they were in the world. Malati Pande was also a Classical singer and has sung very few songs in Hindi films, but excelled in Classical and Marathi songs. Her songs like ” tya tithe, palikade, tikde, maziya priyeche zopde” or ” kunihi paay naka vajavu” are evergreen. She is one of those Marathi singers like Manik Verma, Jyotsna Bhole, Hirabai Badodekar, Saraswati Rane, Shobha Gurtu, Nalini Mulgaonkar, Ram Marathe, Bhimsen Joshi, D.V.Paluskar etc, who just visited Hindi films out of curiosity, but returned to their comfort zones immediately.

Malati was born on 19-4-1930 at Poona, She was attracted to music from her childhood. She was trained by several teachers like Bhaskarrao Ghodke, Trivedi Master, Vilayat Hussain Khan, Vinayak buwa Patwardhan, Bholanath Ghatt and also her husband Pt. Padmakar Barve. At the age of 15 years, she was invited to sing on A.I.R. Poona. She did her Ph.D in Music.

When Sudhir Phadke brought her to Prabhat for audition, for songs of Marathi version of ‘ Aagey Badho ‘-47, Fattelal was very happy with her style of singing and thanked Phadke. Malati Pande’s first lori song “kunihi Paay Naka vajavoo…” was with Singer & Music Director Gajanan Watve and poet Shrinivas Kharkar. It is said that afterwards, many singers and music directors recorded lori songs, but Malati Pande’s this lori song is the best and is still remembered by the Marathi listeners.

Malati Pande sang many Marathi songs under the music direction of Gajanan Watve, Sudhir Phadke, Ram Phatak, Shrinivas Khale, Datta Dawjekar, Madhukar Pathak etc.

Malati Pande sang some 15 Hindi songs under the music direction of K. Bhole, Avinash Vyas, Sudhir Phadke in the following Hindi films – Seeta Swayamvar-48, Maya Bazar-49, Shrikrishna Satyabhama-51, Shri Vishnu Bhagwan-51 and Malati Madhav-55.

Malati married classical singer Pt. Padmakar Barve. They have a son Rajiv Barve who is a singer. His daughter Priyanka Barve is also a famous singer in Marathi and Hindi films. Malati Pande died on 27-12-1997.

Let us now enjoy her last song in Hindi films…

Today’s song is from the film Jwar Bhata-44. It is an important film of the 40’s, because it was the Debut film of Dilip Kumar.

In Hindi film industry, the “Trimurti”of Raj, Dev and Dilip dominated the decades of late 40s, 50s and the 60s- a period of about 25 years in the Golden Age of Hindi films.These three were the most popular, most talked about and the most ‘ín demand’ actors when they were in full form. Each one had a dedicated fixed audience for their films.There were others equally,if not better, actors in this period like, Ashok Kumar, Motilal,Balraj Saqhni, Sanjeev Kumar etc, but these three were different.

What was so different in them ? One point strikes me most, that they never compromised,in selecting films or roles. In other words, once they got established as Heroes, they did not do any roles which did not suit their temperament, style or capacity. For example, when Ashok Kumar was famous as a Romantic Hero,he acted in a Mythological film, “Savitri’-1937, to do Satyavan’s role. Again in 1945, he did the title role in the film ‘Humayun”. Both these Genres were misfits to his image then. He looked pathetic in those misfitting roles. The big three kept off such venturisms, thoughtfully !

Secondly, they always chose only the big banners and ensured they got the maximum footage, the best songs and the best scenes. Thirdly, they never worked with heroines other than A class and of their choice.

Agewise, Dilip Kumar was the seniormost, having been born in 1922. Dev Anand was next, from 1923 and the youngest was Raj kapoor, born in 1924.However, he was the first to die, in 1988. Careerwise, Rajkapoor had only 41 years’ career, from Hamari Baaten-43 (first adult role) to Kim-84. Next was Dilip Kumar, having a career span of 54 years – from Jwar Bhata-44 to Qila-98. Dev Anand had the longest career span of 65 years, from Hum Ek Hain-46 to Chargesheet-2011. He was also the only one of the three, to continue in the next Century, i.e. 21st Century !

All the three gor Dadasaheb Phalke award. Raj Kapoor got it in 1987 at his 63rd year, Dilip Kumar in 1994,when he was72 years and Dev Anand received it in 2002, when he was 79 year old.

While Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand started as Heroes (rather one of the Heroes) in their careers, Raj Kapoor started as a Child artiste in film Inqilab-35 and did 3 films as adult roles, before he became the hero in film Neel Kamal-1947. The first one to become Hero was Dilip Kumar in Jwar Bhata-44 and next was Dev Anand in Hum Ek hain-46.

During my association with this Blog and in my 870 posts, which I wrote here, I have hardly written about songs of these 3 actors. I don’t remember exactly, but I think I have written about 2 films each of Raj, Dev and Dilip, so far. The first film of Dilip Kumar I wrote about was the film Milan-1946 and today’s film Jwar Bhata-44 is his second film today. This is his Debut film.

One more point about these three actors. It was only Raj kapoor’s First Heroine Madhubala, who also became a famous A grade actress. In case of Dilip Kumar, his first Heroine, Mridula Rani and Dev Anand’s first heroine Kamala Kotnis, never took off in Hindi films, nor did they reach A grade status. In a span of a few years, their careers as heroines ended. The Shortest career was of Kamala Kotnis ( who was actually a Telugu actress, married to a Marathi Cinematographer Pandurang Kotnis, who was the younger brother of Dr. Dwarkanath Kotnis, on whose life, V.Shantaram had made the film “Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani”-1946). Mridula survived longer with about 60 films, upto 1980 to her credit. The last I had heard about her was, in 2016 when she was alive and stayed in Worli, Mumbai. As far as Madhubala’s career, we all know too well.

Incidentally, the case of actress Ameeta was also similar. She was the heroine of Shammi Kapoor in film “Tumsa Nahin Dekha-1957”. He became a big star, but Ameeta remained as a B and C grade film actress. The opposite is the career of Meena Kumari. In her initial career, she was the Heroine of Mahipal. Later Meena Kumari became a big A class actress, but Mahipal remained where he was- B class films.

The case of Dilip Kumar was opposite to Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand’s cases. Both these actors struggled hard in their initial stages, but Dilip was extraordinarily lucky. He was actually invited to be a Hero directly. Here is his story, how he came into the film line…

Born as Yusuf khan in Peshawar, on 11-12-1922, he was third amongst 12 siblings. His father moved to Bombay in 1930 to set up the family’s Dry Fruit business. Yusuf graduated (B.A.) from Khalsa College and took up his first job as Assistant manager in the Army Canteen at Deolali Camp, near Nashik in Maharashtra. Unlike the other two stars (Raj and Dev), he had absolutely no connection in his family with film line, dramas or any art for that matter. One brother did MBBS and settled in the UK, another did Management course and the youngest Nasir Khan alone joined films – much later than Dilip Kumar.

Devika Rani of Bombay Talkies had gone for shopping, one day. At one fruit shop, she saw Yusuf, who had, by chance, replaced his ill father, in the shop. She found his face sensitive and eyes expressive. She called him, talked to him and gave him her card, asking him to meet her next day at the studios. After the routine Screen tests,interview etc, Yusuf was taken in by Bombay Talkies as an apprentice. Devika Rani started grooming her personally. Bhagvati Charan Sharma, famous Hindi writer, employed by Bombay Talkies then, gave yususf the name Dilip. The suffix Kumar was borrowed from Ashok kumar. Bunny Rueben, Film Historian says, “Devika Rani came up with three names – Dilip Kumar, Vasudev and Jahangir. Yusuf selected Dilip kumar.”

Bombay Talkies was heaven for New talents. It had launched and relaunched to fame, Heros like Ashok Kumar,Jairaj, kavi Pradeep, directors K A Abbas, N R Acharya, Najam Naqvi, Amiya Chakrawarty, Gyan Mukherjee, Bimal Roy and actresses Renuka Devi, Mumtaj Shanti, Ranjana and many more. Dilip Kumar’s first film in Bombay Talkies was Jwar Bhata-44. He was not the main Hero. Agha was the main Hero. Dilip was the second hero. His Heroine-Mridula Rani was also a New Entrant.

In his first film, Dilip Kumar did not impress anybody. He was criticised heavily by Baburao patel, who called him Ánaemic and one who needs a lot of good food to look better. As such, even Bombay Talkies also did not have much expectation from him. They had pinned their hopes on the new Heroine Mridula Rani. With every film, Dilip Kumar improved, beyond belief and India got an A class actor.

The story of Mridula is sad. She fell into marital trouble and sank deep into it. She took a break of about 4 years and when she came back, she had to accept only character roles, which she did.

Mridula was a victim of her contract with Bombay Talkies. It destroyed her career as a Heroine forever. Devika Rani was her Mentor in Bombay Talkies. However, after Himanshu Rai’s death, no one was listening to her in the company due to groupism. Disgusted, Devika rani left Bombay Talkies,having sold all the shares. Mridula got stuck in the company without work, due to her 5 year contract. It was Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures who somehow convinced Bombay Talkies to loan her to him and she got roles in 2 of their films. In the film ‘Bhakta Dhruva”-47, she played mother to 16 year old Shashi kapoor (sr) when she herself was about 23 year old only ! But she had no choice. The film and her role became famous, but she lost her chances of becoming Heroine in any film thereafter for ever.

Mridula ( real name Chandrakanta) was born on 2-11-1924 at Almora, but was educated in Delhi. When she was in college doing her graduation, Amiya Chakravarty of Bombay Talkies came to Delhi on a Talent Hunt. He contacted her and gave her an offer. She signed a 5 year contract with Bombay Talkies and Devika Rani became her Mentor, teaching her everything. She was paid 2500 rupees salary with a furnished house. Her first film was “Jwar Bhata”-44, opposite another Debutant Dilip Kumar (Yousuf Khan). After Himanshu Rai’s death, Bombay Talkies was already in disarray. Many people had left the company due to differences with Devika Rai. A group of them formed Filmistan.

After getting released from Bombay Talkies, she acted in few films – Samaj ko badal dalo-47Bhakt Dhruv-47, Toote taare-48, Nar Narayan-49, Veer Babruvahan-50 and Ram Darshan-50.

She got married to her lover Mr. G C Andley. However the marriage was unsuccessful and she went back to Delhi. She spent a miserable life selling whatever she had, to survive. She got divorce and came back to Bombay to work in films, in 1954. She worked in 53 films after this. Her last released film was Saboot-80, though she had married again and retired some time before that.

The last I heard about her was, she was living in worli, Mumbai all alone, in 2016. Her only daughter stayed nearby and looked after her.
( some information for this post has been taken from the book – “Hero vol.I,” by Ashok Raj, with thanks.)

Today’s song is sung by Parul Ghosh and Amirbai Karnataki. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Blog Day : 4225 Post No. : 15430

11th february is the remembrance day of Pt Narendra Sharma (28 February 1913 – 11 February 1989) .

Present day HFM lovers have no idea about the contributions of Pt Narendra Sharma if they just go by the wikipedia entry on him. The person writing his wikipedia entry has no clue about Pt Narendra Sharma.

Pt Narendra Sharma was a renowned poet who wrote poetry in Hindi and Urdu. Lata Mangeshkar used to read his poerty and sing them on Radio before she became a playback singer. Here is how she described her association with Pt Narendra Sharma:

“I used to call him ‘Papa’. The first time, I met Papa (Pandit Narendra Sharma) it was at Master Vinayak’s residence. He was accompanied by the eminent litterateur Amritlal Nagar. He asked me to sing for him. During those days, I didn’t need a second invitation to sing. I’d burst into a song whenever I was asked. He was a learned man. I’d spend hours listening to him. In 1968, when I recorded the Bhagavat Gita, Papa came home to congratulate me. I was anxious about my Sanskrit pronunciation. Papa assured me I had done a good job. Papa stayed in Khar. I’d visit his home. My ties with him and his family were very strong. His 3 daughters were my age. I’d carry extra clothes to his home and stay overnight. His daughters and I would do dhamaal all night. His wife though Gujarati, adopted the Uttar Pradesh culture after marriage, because Papa was from UP. I never heard him saying a bad word about anyone. I met Harivanshrai Bachchan Saab at Papa’s place. They called each other ‘Bandhu’. I don’t think I was so close to anyone outside the family. I discussed all my problems with Papa. He called me daughter but always addressed me as ‘Lataji’. I objected to that. But he persisted. When he died of a heart attack, I was heartbroken. No one could take his place.”

He was a lyricist in Hindi movies. HFM is repletre with lyrics containing Urdu words. Pt Narendra Sharma would mostly write songs conttaining Sarskritised Hindi. And he proved that one can write immortal songs in pure Hindi. Take the example of the immortal bhajan from “Bhaabhi Ki Choodiyaan”(1962).

This song, Jyoti kalash chhalke was covered in the blog within a few weeks after this blog was started. There were visitors of this blog who logged on to this blog daily just to listen to this song. There was one grandmom who one day complained that the song has been taken off and that she is no longer able to make her young grand daughter listen to this bhajan- a practice that she was following without fail every morning !

I put on this song every day for my baby grand-daughter…and today it says the video has been removed by the user….could you reinstate it please? It’e been so lovely to hear it…along with the lyrics…I learnt the song from your blogpost!

This song has so many heartwarming comments in the blog. One of these comments is from Mrs Lavanya Shah, the daughter of Pt Narendra Sharma !

How many of us know that Vividh Bharati, the musical channel of Akashwani, was started by Pt Narendra Sharma ! When Government of India decided to have a music channel, Pt Narendra Sharma was hired as Chief Producer to start this project. He conceptualised and executed this project. “Vividh Bharati” , a name that he thought of, started its broadcast on 2 october 1957 from Bombay. The very first song that was played on this brand new Radio station was “Naach Mayura Naach”. It was sung by Manna Dey, penned by Pt Narendra Sharma and composed by Anil Biswas.

Many of the programmes that we still listen to today on Vividh Bharati were stated during those early days and they were the brainchild of Pt Narendra Sharma himself ! For instance “Hawa Mahal” is being broadcast on Vividh Bharati right from its beginning.

A programme for fauzi bhais, called Jaimala was started in Vividh Bharati on evenings in 1962, in the wake of China war. On saturday evening, this programme would be presented by a celebrity. This vishesh jaimala is one of the most popular programmes on Radio.

When Asian games were held in New Delhi in 1982, it was Pt Narendra Sharma who wrote the theme song-“swaagatam suswaagatam”. This song has now become a standard song to be played during official functions, such as Republic day etc.

On the occasion of the remembrance day of this remarkable artist, we pay our tributes to him by covering a song from “Satyam Shivam Sundaram”(1978). This song is sung by Lata and chorus. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song, a welcome song, is lipsynced by Zeenat Aman and others.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala. For a change for Pt Narendra Sharma, the lyrics of this song contains mostly Urdu words. The song sounds just as sweet as most songs penned by him.

Today’s song is from film Sant Janabai-49.

This was a film made by Prabhat Film Company, Poona. It was produced by S.(Saheb mama) Fattelal and it was directed by a Noted Marathi Director- Goving Ghanekar, who also directed one more Hindi film Shiv Leela-52. Both the films were Bilingual,made in Hindi and Marathi. The lyrics for the Hindi version were written by Pt.Narendra Sharma and the music was composed by Sudhir Phadke. The story of the film and the screenplay was by G.D.Madgulkar – a very famous Marathi writer and poet from Maharashtra. The cast of the film was Hansa Wadkar, Shakuntala, Ganesh Abhyankar, Gauri, Balakram, Javdekar, Kumar Ashok etc.

During the period 30s to mid 40s, Indian Film Industry was dominated by film production giants like New Theatres, Bombay Talkies, Ranjit, Prabhat and Wadia. Films were sold and seen just on the name of the film company. Diverse subjects were handled by these film makers and they contributed to maintaining Indian culture and traditions. This was the period when films with a message were made. Actors and directors had not yet become rule-makers. The studio system had a discipline.

However, after the second world war,lot of money came into the film line and slowly the priorities and values changed. Profits from the films became the major issue and this diverted most producers to make what they thought the audience wanted.The capable and talented film makers separated from their present organisations to have their own set ups. Actors no more stuck to any specific studio and ‘Free-lancing’ became the password. This also prompted the collapse of the studios. New Theatres, Bombay Talkies, Ranjit, Wadia and Prabhat not only split but also closed down, over a period, due to their own reasons.

Prabhat was no exception. It is popularly believed that when Shantaram left Prabhat, that was the point of its disintegration,but it is actually not so. Prabhat shifted from kolhapur to Poona in 1933 and that time all the Five partners had made a rule that in future, if any director/partner falls in love or has an affair with any of the staff members, he will have to leave Prabhat. ( This was initiated, because the Art Director Saheb mama Fattelal had married Gulab aka kamla Devi,an actress of Prabhat, in 1931.She is the same girl who bends backwards and blows the Tutari or Trombone, in Prabhat’s famous Logo) Under this rule, the first to go was Keshavrao Dhaiber, who fell in love with the heroine Nalini Tarkhad and married her in 1937. After his exit, in his place, Prabhat’s long time distributor Baburao Pai was appointed a Partner/Director.

V. Shantaram married Heroine Jaishree (Kamulkar) on 22-10-1941.He was continuously prodded to leave Prabhat. Finally he left and founded his own Rajkamal Kala Mandir. One more director V.Damle died in 1945. Prabhat started crumbling and after its last film Sant Janabai-1949, it stopped production. The studio and the properties were auctioned in 1952, and the company was officially closed on 13-10-1953.

Prabhat had made many films on Marathi saints like Sant Sakhu, Sant Tukaram, Sant Dnyaneshwar, Maya Machhindra, Dharmatma etc .Maharashtra had a rich tradition of Saints. During the period 13th Century to 17th Century, many saints guided the people of Maharashtra. Most saints of Maharashtra were from lower Castes, but they had followers in every section of the society, including Brahmins. There were saints like Namdev-Tailor, Tukaram-Vaishya, Pundalik-Varkari, Goroba-Potter, Janabai-Shudra, Kanhopatra- S.C., Sant Sena- Barber, Savata mali and Chokha Mela – Gardeners, Narhari-Goldsmith and many such more.

Almost every saint film brought in lot of profits to Prabhat. The most famous one was of course Sant Tukaram (Marathi)-1936, which brought money and fame. This film is taught in many Film courses all over the world even today.Its Hindi version came in 1948. No wonder the Prabhat chapter closed with a saint film- Sant Janabai-49.

The story of Janabai is intertwined with the story of Namdev, because Namdev had given her shelter in his home. So, Prabhat first wanted to make this film as a Sant Namdev film. Prabhat’s in house writer Shivram Vashikar wrote the story and Vasant painter was to direct the film. But the plan changed and film on Janabai’s name was decided. Now, G.D.Madgulkar, eminent writer and Poet of Marathi wrote the story. The director was also changed. Govind Ghanekar was the production chief in Prabhat. He was named as the director.Later, he directed and produced many famous and hit Marathi films in 50s and 60s. Earlier actor Ganesh Abhyankar aka Vivek was to become Namdev. In this film also he was retained as Namdev. This actor Vivek, in later years, became one of the most successful actors on Marathi screen. Films used to be sold on his name alone.

While shooting this film, there was a very touching but interesting incident. The last scene of the film Sant Janabai-49 was that Janabai is taken to the Gallows to be hanged on a false accusation of stealing gold ornaments of Lord Vitthal. The shooting was being done in a village near Kolhapur. The big procession of people was going with the handcuffed Janabai in the centre, chanting Vithal Vithal.The people also chanted and some were weeping and falling on her feet (for shooting purpose only). The villagers had gathered in huge numbers, to see the shooting.Many of them thought that this was all real. They too wept and fell on Janabai’s feet. The studio workers had a tough time to remove and restrain them during the shooting.

One name in the cast is that of Gauri. Her real name was Tanibai Dawari. In this film she played Namdev’s mother. She was with Prabhat since its inception and did small roles in silent films. She was totally illiterate and could not read or write. After the advent of the Talkie films, she continued doing small roles in Prabhat films. When film Sant Tukaram was being conceived, Shantaram started searching for an actress to do the role of Tukaram’s wife-Avali…who loved Tukaram but was sort of a shrew because she felt Vithoba bhakti was spoiling Tukaram. Suddenly Shantaram saw Gauri and he called her. Giving a copy of the script to her, he said,” you are selected to do the role of Avali. Now read the dialogues and be prepared.”

Gauri was stunned. She did not know how to react. She could not read. She was sure that now she will be exposed and removed from service, as Prabhat did not employ illiterate people. This was their rule for employment. She took the script and went out of the room. Music Director Keshavrao Bhole found her in a corner, weeping. When he enquired repeatedly, Gauri explained everything frankly. Bhole pacified her and said, ‘ Dont worry ‘. From that day onwards he taught Gauri reading and writing for 8 hours a day for 15 days. Being a sharp student Gauri picked it up very quickly, as it was a Do or Die status for her.

Her role in film Sant Tukaram was lauded by one and all. It was praised even in Venice festival. Prabhat gave her a special award also. Gauri continued with Prabhat till it was making films. Then she retired from films and settled in Poona, doing some household jobs for survival. Unfortunately the Panshet flood debacle in Poona in 1961, washed out everything she had. She returned to her hometown,Kagal,near Kolhapur. In 1964,a film on Tukaram ” Tuka zalase kalas” in Marathi was launched. Sulochana Latkar was to do the role of Tukaram’s wife, Avali. She wanted to take blessings from Gauri-the original Avali. Sulochana went to Kagal and took her blessings. She gave her a Sari and some money too. Soon after this, Gauri aka Tanibai Dawari died.

In spite of good direction, acting and good music by Sudhir Phadke, the film could not escape being the last stone on the samadhi of Prabhat and a Golden Chapter of Hindi cinema came to a close.

The Music Director Sudhir Phadke may not have been a notable composer in Hindi films,but he was a big gun in Marathi cinema. Sudhir Phadke ( July 25, 1919 – July 29, 2002) was an accomplished Marathi singer-composer. He was regarded as an icon of the Marathi film industry and Marathi Sugam Sangeet i.e. Bhavgeet (light music) for five decades. Apart from Marathi, Phadke sang and composed songs in several Hindi films as well. Phadke was affectionately known as Babuji (an honorary title given to respected gentlemen in India).

Sudhir Phadke was born in Kolhapur on July 25, 1919. His birth name was Ram Phadke, but he later changed his name to ‘Sudhir’ when he composed a song for HMV because he thought ‘Sudhir Phadke’ sounded more ‘weighty’. Phadke acquired his primary tutelage in vocal classical music from the late Vamanrao Padhye in Kolhapur. After beginning his career with HMV in 1941, he joined the Prabhat Film Company as music director in 1946. During his long career, he composed for many Marathi and Hindi films. He was also an immaculate playback singer. Phadke married his fellow singer Lalita Deulkar. Their son Shridhar Phadke (born 1951) is also a composer and singer.

Geet Ramayana, based on poet G D Madgulkar’s verses, is one of Phadke’s most popular works. The programme ran on All India Radio for a year, 1954-55. Stage performances of the program continue to draw huge crowds even today. Phadke set to music all 56 songs, and they were sung by different singers for radio (Manik Verma, Lata Mangeshkar, Phadke himself, Vasantrao Deshpande etc). All 56 songs were also recorded in Phadke’s own voice.
In last days of his life, Phadke was involved in producing a Hindi film on the life of the Indian freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. The movie Veer Savarkar was funded by public donations. Sudhir Phadke last sang and composed music for this movie.
Phadke was connected with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh for over 60 years. He was the main inspiration and founder member of India Heritage Foundation in the United States.

Sudhir Phadke gave music to 19 Hindi films from 1946 (Rukmini Swayamvar) to 1972 (Daraar). His famous film is Pehli Tarikh -54, in which he had composed the famous Kishore Kumar song- Din hai suhana aaj pehli tarikh hai. He also sang 14 songs in 9 Hindi films. A noteworthy fact about Sudhir Phadke is that during his peak period in Marathi films, he created a World Record. He teamed up with writer/poet G.D.Madgulkar (गदिमा , as he was known fondly in Maharashtra) and director Raja Paranjape. Together, as a team, they gave a total of 11 Hit films,in a row in 18 years- from 1948 to 1966 … a record for a Team.

The story of film Sant Janabai-49, adapted from aumamen.com is…

Jana, a little girl whose mother before dying told her to go to Pandharpur where she will be protected by Lord Vitthal, A merchant who is the father of Sant Namdev accidentally steps on Jana’s hand and asks for her forgiveness. He asks what she was doing in the temple alone, she tells him her story, being a good devotee of Vitthal he adopts her.

Little Namdev likes her from the instant he sees her and accepts her as his elder sister with joy. But the mother of Namdev wasn’t too happy with another person being in the family, but later she too melts to the love and simplicity of the little girl who would become a great saint as we know today.

Jana was assigned the work of washing the clothes by Namdev’s mother. Jana and Namdev hear a group of pilgrims singing in praise of Lord Vitthal and they start singing and dancing. Children in the group who are very thirsty run to Janabai to beg for water from her. “There are many wells in the village, go get your own water” says Namdev. “But we are outcastes, nobody gives us water” says the one of the pilgrims.

Janabai pours them water from her pot, the satisfied devotees bless her for giving them water to drink. She gets scolded and beaten by Namdev’s mother for her act of charity towards the outcastes, which was considered a terrible thing during those times.

Namdev being a very devotional man, always sings and dances and forgets the duties of an householder. Janabai works hard for the food of Namdev’s family (wife and two children). Janabai prays to Vitthal for the food, when Vitthal gives her food she only takes what she needed for a day or two.

Namdev had a big debt to be settled, but he was on a pilgrimage to North India. the wealthy man who had lent him money decides to take Namdev’s property into possession. Jana pleads with him and agrees that she would pay all the money back. Jana works night and day to gather the money she needed.

One night she was very tired and falls asleep while working, but when she wakes up she sees a blanket on her and also sees that the work has been finished. Next night she pretends to be sleeping so that she could catch the person who did it. As soon as she sleeps she sees Lord Vitthal appear and do her work for her.

She catches him while working, from then on Lord Vitthal helps her in her work, he sings for her. He fetches water for her and does many things around

One day Lord Vitthal feels very tired, seeing that Jana puts him to sleep. In the morning when he wakes up, he walks back to the temple with the blanket around his body, his ornament falls from his neck and falls on the floor of Janabai’s house.

In the morning when priests see the statue of Lord Vitthal they come to the conclusion that somebody must have stolen the ornament of Lord. They see a blanket nearby and assume it must belong to the thief. They start questioning everyone to find out to whom that belonged.

Janabai tells them that it belonged to her, priests search her house and when they find the ornament they accuse her of the theft, she tells them that the Lord was sleeping in her house yesterday and he must have left the ornament. People laugh at her, and thinking of her to be a liar, they decide to hang her to death.

They march her on streets, and just before the time to kill her, she prays to Lord Vitthal and he appears.

Month of August is full of so many National memories. Whenever we celebrate 9th August or 15th August, there will be invariably references of martyrs who dedicate their lives for the nation. We fought one war with China and four with Pakistan, and our loss of ‘shaheeds‘ was substantial.

Jaidev ji composed these Pt Narendra Sharma’s expressive lyrics in the voice of Lata ji. He recorded the same song with the voice of Asha ji and even that is equally popular.

(After the China war Lata and Asha had practised with a song of Pradeep ji, composed by C Ramchandra. But when Lata ji sang it ALONE on 26th January function at New Delhi, it became a much discussed controversy, as everybody will recall.)

The lyrics are so impressive and expressive, that there is no need for longer explanation. I am sure that the listeners of the song will become totally emotional.

“Maalti Madhav”(1951) was produced by BhaleRao-Shreenivas Joshi and directed by M Neelkanth for Prasann Pictures, Bombay. This mythological movie (based of Sansktit Poet Bhavbhuti’s creation of the same name) had Durga Khote, Anant Marathe, Baby Shakuntala, Balakram, Indu Pal, Pittu, Sushaant, Vasant Shinde, Indu Kulkarni, Ganpat Rao, Gauri, Kelkar, Subodhini, Takalkar, Kumud Lele, Bargeer, Suman, Raj Kishore, Sulochana etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered. Both of them were covered way back in 2011 !

Now, after seven years, here is the next song from “Maalti Madhav”(1951) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Only the audio of the song is available. Most likely the song was picturised on Durga Khote who was the leading lady in the movie.


Song-Man saunp diya anjaane mein (Maalti Madhav)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

man saunp diya anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein
anjaane mein
anjaane mein
anjaane mein
anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjane mein
man saup diya anjane mein

nainon ne darash ras kiya paan
kar diya palak ne hriday daan
nainon ne darash ras kiya paan
kar diya palak ne hriday daan
ik jhalak mein bandhe praanon se pran
ek jhalak me bandhe praanon se pran
kitna sukh hai bandh jaane mein
kitna sukh hai bandh jaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein

aankhon ko kya ho gaya aaj
hain pathh mein atke bina kaaj
aankhon ko kya ho gaya aaj
hain pathh mein atke bina kaaj
pag pag par inko barje laaj
pag pag par inko barje laaj
ye aati nahin bahlaane mein
ye aati nahin bahlaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein
man saunp diya anjaane mein

“Ratnaghar”(1955) was produced by Sudhir Phadke and Y H Joshi and directed by Yashwant Pethkar for Navbharat Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Shakuntala, Lalita Pawar, Raja Paranjpe, Suryakant, Madan Mohan, Takalkar etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. All the five songs were solos sung by Lata. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Ratnaghar”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, of course. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sudhir Phadke.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya (Ratnaghar)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Narendra Sharma, MD-Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya
main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya
o shyaam teri ban jaaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi
teri meethhi meethhi murli par
teri meethhi meethhi murli par
main swar ban kar mandraaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi

maine tere liye singaar kiya
o o ho ho o o
maine tere liye singaar kiya
aur nainon ko tujh par waar diya
jaana na kabhi maine pahle
jaana na kabhi maine pahle
main geet preet ke gaaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi
o ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi

main ras ki gagariya aa aa
main ras ki gagariya se bheeg gayi
main reejh gayi
jeevan mein pahli baar aaj
jeevan mein pahli baar aaj
main apne se sharmaaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi
o ghanshyam teri ban jaaungi

main ban ki kali aur ban mein pali
kabhi dekhi nahin preetam ki gali
kabhi dekhi nahin preetam ki gali
kab daras milega mohan ka
kab daras milega mohan ka
kab mohan par bali jaaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi
main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya
main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya
