————————————————————————————–

On this date ten years back viz on 6 February 2013, seven songs from sevendifferent movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

7459 Teriya teriya Chaalis Baba Ek Chor(1954) Lata-C Ramchandra duet. 8 songs covered out of 12 by now

We observe that four movies (out of seven) whose songs were covered in the blog on this date ten years ago (on 6 February 2013) have since been YIPPEED. We also observe that as many as five songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them. Coincidence ? Or divine scheme of things ? Today ten years later, we have already discussed four Lata Mangeshkar songs (out of seven songs). We have yet to take up Blog Ten Year Challenge and they too offer us opportunities to covered Lata Mangeshkar songs.

“Rangeeli”(1952) is one of the three movies that is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

“Rangeeli”(1952) was directed by Najam Naqvi for M and T films, Bombay. The movie had Rehana, Rajkumar, Yakub, Mumtaz Ali, Baalam, S.Nazir, Eruch Tarapore,
Leela Mishra, Chanda Bai, Surendra junior, Baby Shila, Aggan, Katana, Baazid Khan, Omkar Dewaskar etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Three songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Rangeeli”(1952) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is credited to Chic Chocolate who was assistant of C Ramchandra. The touch of C Ramchandra is clearly noticeable in this song. What a delightful fresh voiced song it is !

Only audio of the song is available. From the star cast, it appears to be a song picturised on Rehana. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

This post is thanks to the morning programs aired by Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) and Prasar Bharati’s Vividh Bharati today.

The first song that I heard this morning was from the 1967 Bharat Bhushan starrer “Taqdeer”; a song from “Gateway Of India” (1957) was just over. And Jyoti Parmarji announced that the segment was a tribute to yesteryear actor Bharat Bhushan (14th June 1920- 27th January 1992).

The next segment played songs from “Thokar” (1953), Taxi 555 (1958), “Saaranga” (1960) etc; and Jyotiji said that the segment was remembering Sardar Malik (13th January 1930- 27th January 2006).

I am sure if I had listened further, I would have heard some lovely songs of Zia Sarhadi Sahab (1917- 27th January 1997). This youtube link will give us the songs played in that segment.

Then around 9.30 a.m. I switched on to Vividh Bharati and I landed on their “aaj ke fankaar” and I discovered that today is LOIN’s birth anniversary too.

So many yesteryear populars’ anniversaries. So I set out on my favourite activity- trying to find a movie or song featuring at least two of those who are being remebered today. And I had my EUREKAAA!!!! moment sometime back.

Today we are having a song sung by Mohd. Rafi, written by Madan Mohan (not the music director, please note) & Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and composed by Sardar Malik. It is from the movie “Maa Ke Aansoo” (1959). It was a movie which had Hamid Ali Khan, Nalini Jaywant, Neelam, Lalita Pawar, Agha, Ajit Kumar etc. Dhirubhai Desai was the director and more details about the movie can be had in this post Meri jholi ko bhar de of December 27th, 2011. Shri. Arunkumar Deshmukhji has given a brief about the movie in the comments to the post.

I am sure that it is well-known that Hamid Ali Khan was popular as Ajit. He started as an extra in many of his initial films to feed himself. He changed his name to Ajit on the advise of Nanabhai Bhatt. and played the main protagonist in films till sometime in the 60s when he switched to playing character roles and was most sought after villain in movies of the late 60s and most of the 70s. His character in “Kalicharan” (1976) pompously called himself “LOIN” of course that was his way of pronouncing the word Lion; similarly his “Rabbert” for Robert, “Mona Darling” are all unforgettable.
He would have been 101 today.

Sardar Malik passed away this date in 2006. He was active in Hindi Films from late 1940s and gave music for nearly 600 songs. I could readily recollect all the songs that SLBC played this morning. I just thought I will mention here that his children and grand children are connected with the music industry as singers, music directors etc. I also feel like mentioning that Hasrat Jaipuri was his wife’s brother.

Song-Hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan (Maa Ke Aansoo)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Madan Mohan (lyricist), MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

aandhi mein gunaahon ka diya jal nahin sakta
jo bachke aa pahuncha hai
anjaam tera tere hi haathon mein hai naadaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke fariston se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

maathe se siyaah daag gunaahon ke mita de
gunaahon ke mita de
neki ke diye gham ke andhere mein jala de
andhere mein jala de
do din ki khushi ke liye tu bech na imaan
tu bech na imaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
jannat na ?? na yazeedon ke liye hai
Allaah ka ye ghar to shaheedon ke liye hai
hai waqt sambhalne ka
sambhal jaa arre naadaaan
sambhal jaa arre naadaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

kya teri duaaon se falak hil nahin sakta
falak hil nahin sakta
is dar se jo tu chaahe to kya mil nahin sakta
to kya mil nahin sakta
thhak jaayega neki se buraayi ka ye toofaan
buraayi ka ye toofaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan
hai badh ke farishton se bhi insaan teri shaan
khud ko zara pehchaan
tu khud ko zara pehchaan

98th birth anniversary of Mohammed Rafi sahab

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 11

How the human mind works and the vagaries of human memory system, the scientists are still figuring out. I, for one, am very grateful that my memory brings forth to the mind a significant Rafi song to write a post at the most unexpected moment.

Since last few months, things have been very hectic at the domestic front, for no real tangible reason. They just are somewhat crazy, with stress levels running high on the work front too. Family events, travels notwithstanding, I should have written a few more posts this year, if only I could focus. So much so that I was on the verge of advising the HOD that the office needs a “self-help-stress management” “how to make the office atmosphere positive” “How to have healthy work relations with colleagues” sort of workshops/seminar. Not that I am going to do any such thing as advising the HOD, at-least I am trying not to. The thing is, a close friend expressed an opinion, if any such events are organised at the office, this will add to the stress levels of the already stressed-out officers.

I could also suggest some soothing music to be played on the non-existing PA system. There really are many classic music compositions, human civilization has produced. Many of them are having soothing qualities, some have the capacity to amaze the listener, that something like this could be created. There are many amazing and wonderful things, that we human can be grateful for. Sounds of music is one of them. The simplest things in life, which are free are to be valued and be thankful for. I thought the pandemic and tribulations it brought to humans, would make us all better humans, and teach us thankfulness, for many of the blessings which we all take to granted.

Post pandemic, as the world is back to normal, the massive restrictions during 2020 & 2021 are all but forgotten, which seem like a bad dream. Only sometimes I think of those days when work from home was possible, that was one advantage.

I honestly feel, it has had an impact on the evolution of humans. It has had huge psychological impact on young kids and elders. It is to be hoped that kids with the resilience of the young, will get past this bad dream. But the reminders of the bad dream are everywhere around us. The other day, I saw those round circles painted on the floor outside a supermarket. We were made to stand in queue to buy groceries, only a few people allowed inside at a time, to buy essentials for gods sake. If this was not a trial of psychological bondage training imparted to masses, then what was it? No wonder, humans, evolved after the pandemic are more disgruntled than before.

As the scientific community is grappling with the impact on the mental health (which is the new pandemic), lowered immunity in young and old, it is the responsibility and duty of able-minded people in the society to take great care, of their social surroundings, environment and individuals who may need a word or two, of care, of encouragement, of belief, of faith that things do not remain the same, they always change for the better.

No doubt that the research papers and thesis that come out on the impact of COVID – 19 on humanity, will point to the great stress it put on the psychological strength of the world’s populace. For this, the disease is not at fault, but the handling of the crisis, is the culprit. Having said this, I admit that being judgmental in hindsight is easy. But dealing with the aftermath is not going to be easy and it requires all the resilience of humanity.

I read about the voyager 1 & 2 sometime back and about the recordings of sounds to earth which they carried. With great hope I looked for the details of Indian songs in the 90 minutes music record. I found this Hindustani classical song is part of that.

Bhairavi: Jaat Kahan Ho Traditional Kesarbai Kerkar (vocals) with harmonium, Tanpura and tabla accompaniment Recorded in Bombay, April 1953 Hindustani Shastriya Sangeet (Indian classical music) 3:30

Hindustani classical music is an important component of sound of earth in all senses, so its inclusion in the above record is not a surprise. For our part, we have here a hindi film song which is a Hindustani classical song, by Mohammed Rafi Sahab. This is from the film Mrig Trishna(1975), written and composed by Shambhu Sen. This is a soothing, mental massage, critically acclaimed song. I was aware of the song and have heard it many times before today. I have also heard a great fan of Rafi Sahab, singing this song, and he was all praises for this rendition by the maestro. Obviously, he knows a great deal more about classical music than me. I had seen the song many times of TV too. So as soon as he said the mukhda before singing it, I was able to recollect even the filming of the song, and Hema Malini dancing to it. This was a few years ago. But today seeing the song again, I have also remembered reading somewhere, about the location shoot of the song. It is filmed at an actual location of some Haveli or fort is Rajasthan. The original art work and carpet and the carving in the pillars and jharokhas is visible in the hall.

Before starting this post I had checked and could not find the film Mrig Trishna (1975) in the list. But I just thought of checking it again, and now I find that 2 songs from this film are posted and this particular song is posted here.

So here we are, in the 99th year of Rafi Sahab, we are soon going to enter the 100th year of Rafi Sahab. I hope and pray, that we maintain the equilibrium as humanity and take inspiration from the personality of Rafi Sahab and his life’s principles.

Rafi Sahab, keep spreading happiness and peace to the world and beyond, even if the Voyager, has missed out on including your amazing voice. No doubt, as one of the super creations, Rafi sahab has made his contribution to this civilization and increased the ‘shobhaa’ of this ‘sansaar’.

I am posting this funny group song from the film Madhur Milan(1955), which the antithesis of Hindustani classical, which was my original idea for this post. Geeta Dutt and A. R. Ojha are giving company or having fun with Rafi sahab in the song composed by Bulo C. Rani. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Among the legendary associations, Geeta Dutt, is next to only Asha Bhonsle. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan was also part of Madan Mohan’s team for a time. While Bulo C. Rani has composed many sweet renditions by Rafi sahab in early 50’s, some of which I have posted.

So we enjoy this social comic song by this team on this birth anniversary occasion.

Today’s song is from the ‘1952’ movie ‘Saloni’.

If you are a music lover and have been collecting cassettes earlier, you will remember that when HMV brought out the compilations of songs ‘decade wise’ it mentioned this decade of 1956-1966 as the ‘Melodious Years’ of Hindi Cinema. (If I remember correctly, the earlier decades were titled as ‘The Sentimental Era (1936-1946?)” and ‘The Fabulous Years (1946-1956)”.

‘Saloni”(1952) had eight songs. Seven of them were composed by Basant Prakash and one by Vinod.

I do not remember to have listened to the songs of this movie earlier. However, I went through this movie’s details, and its songs because of our regular reader Shri Deepak Patwardhan ji, who sent me ‘farmaaish’ of the song under discussion.

‘Saloni-1952’ was directed by J.P. Advani for ‘Goodluck Pictures, Bombay’. It was produced by Ram H. Khilnani.

This movie had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Poornima, Gulab, Mohna, Shakeela, Rajani, Heera Sawant, Mona, Bela, Achala Sachdev, Shivraj, Radhakishan, Randhir and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 14.04.1952.

(The addenda in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) mentions that this movie was earlier titled as ‘Chanchal’).

As mentioned above this movie had eights songs composed by two music directors. Four lyricists penned the lyrics of the songs. The breakup of their workload is given below

Raja Mehndi Ali Khan three songs
Arjun Dev Ashq three songs
Aziz Kashmiri one song
Hasrat Jaipuri one song

Here are the details of the songs of this movie :-

Today we have a 2-part song from the film Guzara-1954.

The film was made by Aina pictures-owned by S.M.Yusuf. The film was produced and directed by S.M.Yusuf himself. he also did a small role in this film- the only film role he ever did in his film career. There were 3 lyricists- Raja Mehdi Ali Khan (5 songs), Fauk Jami (2 songs) and Munir Lucknowi (1 song) for the film’s 8 songs. Music Director was Ghulam Mohammad.

I have not seen this film. However, from what I have learnt about the film from various sources is that , the film was based on the life of a middle class family who finds it difficult to run the family in the limited income that the family had. The story concluded that mental happiness with our own people is the greatest happiness compared to rich living ! A typical Nehruvian philosophy- very popular in those times. Even big filmmakers like Mehboob Khan were also sold on this ideology. These were the days of rationing and shortages, increasing corruption and black marketing. The common man was broken in pieces but was fed the socialistic wine to keep him quiet !

The cast of the film was Karan Dewan, Paro, Jabeen jalil, Chand Burke, Baby Naaz, Romi, Tiwari, Balam and many others. This was the film in which actress Jabeen Jalil made her Debut.

In the early days of cinema, people joined the film industry for various reasons like…
1) joining filmline did not need any special skill
2) language, religion, education was not a consideration
3) need to earn
4) readiness to do any work

As the Talkie film era started, the requirements changed. For acting, one needed the ability to speak Hindi/Urdu fluently. A reasonably good looking personality and knowledge of singing were additional qualifications. For other technical departments, readiness to do hard work and a will to learn were required. During this phase many girls from singing families (read Tawaifs) were preferred and for them entry into films was easier compared to others. Many girls joined the filmline to get a good husband and settle as a housewife with dignity. Thus many Gujarati Sethiyas married actresses.

There was a very small but distinct category of artistes, who joined films as a “time pass’ or a passion for a short period. These artistes had no intention to continue in the film line.Their interests were varied and different from only doing work in films. included in this category were Classical singers like Manik Varma, Hirabai badodekar, Ram Marathe, Phiroz Dastoor, actresses like Shakuntala Paranjpye, Vasanti, Renuka Devi etc, writers like Dewan Sharar, Lyricists like Moti,B.A., MD like Mukund Rai Trivedi, actors like Kaycee Mehra, Shashi Kapoor Sr. etc, classical instrument players like Ravi Shankar, Pannalal Ghosh, Alla Rakha, Ali Akbar khan etc.

Nevertheless 99% of people joined because they needed to earn money. In the cast of today’s film Guzara-54, you see a name Jabeen Jalil. She is one such artiste who needed to earn money. Jabeen Jalil was a short petite but attractive actress.She was born on 1st April 1936 in Delhi, but was educated in Japan and Bombay, as her father was in foreign services of India.

She used to take part in college dramas and in one such drama the judges were Nigar Sultana and her director husband S.M.Yusuf. They offered her a film as a Heroine. Jabeen’s father had expired and only mother and younger brother were there. She accepted the offer. Her first film was Guzara in 1954. Her second film in 55 was Lutera. Her first hero was Karan Dewan and second was Nasir khan.
She became famous in New Delhi-56, in the role of Kishore’s sister Nikki’s role. She acted in 29 films, out of which 6 were unreleased. She also acted in 4 Punjabi films. She got a National award in 1962 for a Punjabi film in which her Hero was Prem Chopra.
She married Ashok Kak, a kashmiri Brahmin in 1968 and she did her last movie in 1974 Vachan. In 1989 they went to the US for 10 years and came back to Mumbai.Her son Divvij Kak is also an actor and Jabeen became a producer with Jabeen International.
She lives in Dadar, Mumbai nowadays.

Jabeen was a very short, thin and small frame girl. Some other actresses like her were Nimmi, Chand Usmani,and Smriti Biswas who all always looked like young girls.

The Hero of the film was Karan Dewan.

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

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

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

Dewan Karan Chopra aka Karan Dewan ( 6-11-1917 to 2-8-1979 ) youngest of three brothers, was born at Gujranwala, Punjab (now in Pakistan), British India. He studied in Lahore, where he became interested in Journalism and started editing a film magazine in Urdu, Jagat Lakshmi. One of the local distributors he met was Tarachand Barjatya, who was then the Manager of Chandanmal Inder Kumar’s distribution office at Lahore. Through his connection with Barjatya he landed in Calcutta, and in 1939, made his acting debut as Puran in the Punjabi feature film Puran Bhagat

Dewan started his film career with the role of Puran in Puran Bhagat in Punjabi in 1939 in Calcutta. It was produced by Raisaheb Sukhlal Karnani and directed by Roop K. Shorey’s father R. L. Shorey. His second film Mera Maahi (1941) was also a Punjabi film, directed by Shankar Mehta at Lahore and starring Ragini and Manorama. This was the movie in which he sang songs for the first time in the movies under the baton of legendary music director Shyam Sunder. Later, in Rattan, he sang for the first time in Hindi movies for Naushad. B R Chopra, then working as a film journalist in Lahore, helped Karan Dewan to get in touch with Devika Rani, who invited Dewan to come to Bombay. When this did not help Dewan get films, he taught “Urdu pronunciation to actors and actresses”.

In 1944, Karan Dewan acted in Rattan, a musical romantic drama, directed by M. Sadiq, which became one of the most popular films of that year. “A tremendous hit”, it paired Dewan with Swarnalata. His decisive film was Rattan (1944), which was produced by his brother Jaimini Diwan, and this movie turned out to be the biggest hit of 1944. He also sang songs in this movie under music director Naushad, and his song “Jab Tum Hi Chale Pardes” became popular. He sang in films such as Piya Ghar Aaja (1947), Mitti Ke Khiloune (1948) and Lahore (1949). His other important films were Zeenat (1945), Lahore (1949), Dahej (1950), Bahar (1951) and Teen Batti Char Rasta (1953). Known as a “jubilee star”, about twenty of his films are stated to have been jubilee (twenty-five weeks or more) hits.

Dewan married co-actress Manju in 1944 following the release of Rattan, in which she had a character role. By 1966, he was working as a casting agent for the film unit of Maya (1966). He continued to work in the 1960s and 1970s playing supporting parts in films such as Apna Ghar (1960), Shaheed(1965), Jeene Ki Raah (1969) and Nadaan (1971), with the last film in which he was credited, being Sohanlal Kanwar’s Atmaram (1979).

He worked in 73 films and sang 18 songs in 9 films. He worked with all leading actresses of his times,including Noorjehan and Nargis. At the end of his career, however, he was down financially and had to work as a Manager with B R Chopra’s company. When he died, except two workers of the Cine artistes association, no one else from the Film industry was present.

Today’s song is the 3rd song from the film Guzara-1954. In the part 2 song you will be surprised to hear the voice of Pt.Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It sounds just like a girl’s voice. I was confused but on inquiry, our Sadanand Kamath ji confirmed that the voice was that of Hridaynath only. Enjoy…

From the above table we can see that six songs out of ten songs of this movie have been posted on the blog so far.

Today 18th February’2022 is the ninety-fifth birth anniversary of music director Khayyam (18.02.1927 – 19.08.2019). As a tribute to him on this occasion, I am presenting a song from this movie ‘Shola Aur Shabnam-1961’. This movie made its debut on the blog on 10.05.2009 and still waiting for its all songs to be covered on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, and it is picturised on Baby Chandrakala and Master Akashdeep. Also seen in the picturisation of this song is Leela Mishra and other artists. (I could not identify the man playing Leela Mishra’s husband.)

Today’s song, though a children song, is a description of fighting and patch-up between the parents.

I think this must be one of the very few songs that Khayyam Saab composed as a ‘children song’. I do not remember any other song. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Raja Mehndi Ali Khan. Music is composed by Khayyam Saab.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Today’s song is from the film Garma Garam-1957.

The film was made by G.M.Pictures, Bombay. The Producer was Navin C Shah and the Director cum story writer cum Screenplay writer cum Lyricist was P.L. Santoshi. The film had music by Vinod. The 11 songs of the film were written by P L Santoshi, D N Madhok and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan. 3 Songs are already on the Blog and this will be its 4th song. Interestingly, this song is written by Santoshi and RMA Khan jointly, as per a note on HFGK.

Of course, this is nothing new. Such things have happened several times in Hindi films. Here are few examples of joint writing the Lyrics of songs….

1.Footpath-53….The famous song by Talat – ” Shyam e gham ki kasam”….Ali Sardar Jafri and Majrooh Sultanpuri.
2.Miss Bombay-57….” Zindagi bhar gham judai ka….Prem Dhawan and Asad Bhopali
3.Buzdil-51….” Rote rote gujar gayi raat re”….Kaifi Azmi and Shailendra
4.Humlog-51….All songs….Vishwamitra Adil and Uddhav Kumar
5.Pardesi-57….” Rimzim barse paani”….Prem Dhawan and Ali Sardar Jafri

This is one of those strange things that happen in Hindi film industry. Of course, such “Mutual Collaboration” are also found in some cases of Film Direction – where two Directors direct a film jointly (those cases are different where a Director dies and another completed his balance work or where the first director left the film and another took over). This has also happened in Music direction where two MDs jointly gave music (cases of established MD pairs are different).

The second notable thing about the film was – the cast consisted of Agha, Gope, Omprakash, Bhagwan, Marutirao, Chhota Gope, Indira Bansal,Nadira, Rajni, Miss Kamal, Maya Das, Krishna kumari and many others. The film was classified as a ” Stunt’ film. I wonder what stunts this band of comedians performed in the film. I saw this film when it was released simultaneously on 5th July 1957 at Lamington Cinema, Bombay as well as in Ashok talkies in Hyderabad. After seeing the film we felt like having got cheated. The film had no stunts and nothing in the film to make the audience ” Garam” either ! In those times while Vinod’s songs of “Ek thi Ladki-1949″ were still echoing in our ears, music of this film made us completely ” Thanda Thanda” and made us wonder if he was the same MD Vinod of Ek thi ladki ? Here is the film’s story which will prove what I have said….

Wealthy Garibdas has no issues, but only 2 Nephews- Banke, a simpleton and Banwari a chaalbaaz, who spends money on dancing girl-Chandni. Knowing this Garibdas makes his will in the name of Banke. While recording his will on camera, he dies without telling location of his wealth halfway.

Banke contacts the photographer-Asha for enquiry. They fall in love. While searching they find that a map and 6 keys hidden in 6 Golden Chairs had the secret. But the chairs are already sold by Banwari to various people in India. They get addresses from the auctioneer who sold these chairs.

Asha and Banke contact all those buyers and get the 6 keys. meanwhile, Banke comes to know all this and catches up with the pair. There is a fight in Banke and Banwari. Banke wins the fight, but magnanimously gives the keys to Banwari. Seeing this generosity, Banwari has a change of heart and both embrace each others.

Finally, they find a Box. Using the keys, they open the Box, only to find only a piece of white paper written ‘ God helps those who help themselves”.
Asha has an idea. She starts pressing the box in different ways and suddenly it opens and the map is found where the wealth is hidden.
The two brothers share the wealth.

The End.

In the cast of the film, there is a name Maruti Rao. He was a comedy actor and father of Comedienne Guddi Maruti. Earlier to him there was another actor called Marutirao Pehelwan ( father of Dancer Gopi Krishna), who operated from Silent films to Talkie films till early 40’s. Although same name, these actors did not cause any ” Same Name Confusion”, because they operated one after another – without overlapping their career period. However, I still found that some sites making a mix up of their Filmography.

His full name was Marutirao Ganpatrao Parab. He was born on 12-2-1927 at Ahmednagar, near Poona. After completing his Matriculation, he came to Bombay to try his luck in film acting. His first few films like Pagli Duniya-44, and Gajre-48 were without his name in credits He got his credits firmly from film Albela-51. Then he faeatured in many many films…Footpath-53, Baap re Baap-55, Baghdad ka chor-55, Chori chori-56, Guest House-59, Opera House-61, parasmani-63, Lutera-65, Ustad 420-69, Shor-72, Kunwara Baap-74, Don-78 etc etc. In the 60’s he mainly worked in Dara Singh films.

He acted in total 221 films and featured in 34 songs on screen. He also directed 7 films, namely Baghi Shehzada-64, Hum sab ustad Hai-65, Killers-69, Bank Robbery-69, Mangu Dada-70, Kahin aar kahin paar-71 and Hum sab chor hain-73. His last film as actor was Bandish – 1980. As an actor he was not much satisfied, but film direction gave him joy and satisfaction. After his last film he retired from films. However several films like karate-83 and Naya Bakra-85 got delayed releases. He died peacefully on 12-3-1981.

he had married his co-star Miss kamal, a small time actress who worked in films like Dashehra-56, Tartar ka chor-55, Garma Garam -57, Darbar-55, Riyasat-56 etc. etc. Their daughter Guddi Maruti had a better luck in films than both of them.

Lyrics

Humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati
nazron se jo nazren mil jaatin
ae jee mil jaati mil jaati mil jaati
ae jee mil jaati mil jaati mil jaati
nazron se jo nazren mil jaatin
ye duniya jannat ho jaati
ye duniya jannat ho jaati
haan haan
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
chilman uthi bijli chamki
wo ek jhalak dikhlaa ke gaye
jab nazron ne unki balaayen lin
aa aa aa aa aa
jab nazron ne unki balaayen lin
wo saamne thhe sharmaake gaye
din raat tadapne waalon ko
ek baar wo phir tadpaake gaye ae ae
gar hans ke wo saamne aa jaate
haan aan aan aan aan aan aan
gar hans ke wo saamne aa jaate
aji aa jaate aa jaate aa jaate
gar hans ke wo saamne aa jaate
kooche mein qayaamat ho jaati
kooche mein qayaamat ho jaati
aa aa aa aa aa
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
chilman uthhi jooti chamki
ye sab ke sab ghabraake gaye
haaye
aahen na bhari shiqwe na kiye
darbaan ke dande kha ke gaye
sar pe paanv rakh ke bhaage
thhokar khaayi
uhu
sharmaake gaye
gar thhodi si der ye ruk jaate
in sab ki hajaamat ho jaati
aji ho jaati ho jaati ho jaati
in sab ki hajaamat ho jaati
hajaamat hajaamat hajaamat
humko to adaawat hai inse
unko bhi adaawat ho jaati
haha
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati

aa aa aa aa aa
din raat tasawwur hai unka
aur chupke chupke rona hai
ae subah ke taare tu hi bata
aa aa aa
aa aa aa
ae subah ke taare tu hi bata
anjaam mera kya hona hai
unki furkat mein mujhe kab tak
kaanton ke sej pe sona hai ae ae ae
gar phool sa chehra dikhlaate
dikhlaate dikhlaate dikhlaate
gar phool sa chehra dikhlaate
kaanto mein bhi raahat ho jaati
aa aa aa
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati

aa aa aa aa
takiye mein apna sar deke
tujhe chupke chupke rona hai
o o o o
aa aa aa aa
aashaon ka kambal odhe huye
tujhe tooti si khatiya mein to sona hai
ya tu jaane ya main jaanoon
anjaam tera kya hona hai ae ae ae
wo tujhpe marte to TB ki shiqaayat ho jaati
aji ho jaati ho jaati ho jaati
TB ki shiqaayat ho jaati
humko to adaawat hai unse
unko bhi adaawat ho jaati
humko to mohabbat hai unse
unko bhi mohabbat ho jaati

aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
hum dil ka chain luta baithhe
ab khoone tamanna peete hain
ji lagta nahin hai ae ae
duniya mein
go jeene ko hum jeet hain
o o o
ye dil ka paan to kha baithhe
ab aahon ke cigarette peete hain
ae doctar aakar tu hi bata aa aa
ye mar gaye hain ya jeete hain
quinine agar na kha lete
in sab ko haraarat ho jaati
aji ho jaati ho jaati ho jaati
in sabko haraarat ho jaati
aa aa
humko to adaawat hai unse
unko bhi adaawat ho jaati
