Today’s song is from an obscure film called Miss Devi-44. The film was made by Laxmi Productions, Bombay-owned by the producer Director Chimanlal Trivedi. The Music was done by Ashok Ghosh. The song is sung by Rajkumari and an unknown male.

Ashok Ghosh started his music career as an assistant to Pransukh Nayak, for Sagar Movietone film Dr. Madhurika-35. He impressed the company with his work and he was given film Manmohan-36 as an independent Music Director. He had a new assistant named Anil Biswas.

Anil Biswas came from Calcutta along with his Mentor Hiren Bose. In Bombay, he first worked as a joint MD for film Bal Hatya-35 and Bharat ki Beti-35. He got his first film Dharam ki Devi-35 as MD. Anil Biswas joined Sagar as an assistant to Ashok Ghosh. The songs of Manmohan became very popular and famous, especially ” tumhi ne mujh ko prem sikhaya” by Surendra and Bibbo. According to Anil Biswas, he made the song, but Ashok Ghosh always maintained that it was his song. To stress his ownership of this song, Ghosh included the same song in film Nirdosh-41, this time sung by Mukesh and Nalini Jaywant.

After Sagar merged into national Studios, Ghosh gave music to Sanskar-40, Kasauti-41, Nirdosh-41 and Gareeb-42 ( Here again Anil Biswas was his co-MD). Then came Angoothi-43, Sharafat-43, Inkaar-43 and Miss Devi-44 and Aarati-45. His last film was Gunjan -48.Ashok Ghosh left Bombay for Calcutta, where he spent his rest of life.

The Director of this film was Chimanlal Trivedi, who was one of the major film makers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more as a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. he wrote story of film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Caudhari, Phani mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon,Sharafat,Bhagya Laxmi,Kadambari,Tamanna,Inkaar,Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran,Ashok Ghosh,Rafiq Gaznavi,K C Dey,Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and naushad gave music to his films.

In the end, he turned to Stage and started Abhinay Bharati. He staged many dramas in Bombay and Gujarat. Chimanlal always went for big names. He had close relations with Nehru, Menon, Morarji Desai, and other National leaders. His wife Kantaben was a Leader herself. Chimanlal Trivedi died on 25-11-1973. His wife, 3 sons and a daughter settled in USA.

It may be a coincidence, but Gujarati businessmen like Chimanlal Trivedi, Chimanlal Desai,Chimanlal Luhar, Chaturbhuj Doshi, Chimankant Desai, Chunibhai Desai and Chandulal Shah made sizable contribution to Hindi cinema in the first 20 years of the Talkie era. All names started with CH ( ? ) !

Film Miss Devi had a cast of Leela Desai, Surendra,Jagdish Sethi, Agha, Moni Chatterji, Nazeer etc etc. Leela Desai was brought by Trivedi by offering her money she could not refuse. After doing 5 films with New Theatres and 1 film with Ideal Film Co. at Calcutta, she came to Bombay and worked here till she left films.

Leela Desai was the daughter of Dr. Umedbhai Desai-a Gujarati and his second wife Satyabala Devi- a Bengali from Bihar, who was a prominent singer of the 1930s. She was born in America, where her parents had gone for a 3 year trip. She grew up in India. She learnt dancing from Amla Devi-who married Uday shanker, Lachhu Maharaj and Sohan lal. She also learnt music in Morris College , Lucknow. Actress kamala Kumari of New Theatres had also learnt from here. In one of her stage performances in Lucknow, NT’s Director Hem Chander saw her and invited her to Calcutta for working in films.

She worked in the film President-37 as sister of Kamlesh Kumari,opposite Saigal. It was followed by Vidyapati-37, Dushman-38, Kapal kundala-39 and Nartaki-40. She also did Adarsh Mahila-37 with Ideal Film company. Chimanlal Trivedi brought her to Bombay to act opposite Jairaj in film Tamanna-42. She acted in 5 films of Chimanlal Trivedi. After tamanna, leela Desai acted in films like Sharafat,Paraya Dhan, Nagad narayan,Inkaar, Mujrim, Miss Devi,Kaliyan, Meghdoot,Maharani Minal Devi,Magadhraj,Kamla, Dev kanya, Soorat and last film Geet Govind-47.

She acted opposite leading actors like K L Saigal, Najmul Hasan, Jairaj, Pahadi Sanyal, Surendra, Chandra Mohan, Khalil, Baburao pendharkar etc etc. She worked under top directors like Debki Bose, Nitin Bose, kidar Sharma, Phani mujumdar and others. her sisters Monica Desai ( who married Phani Mujumdar) and Ramola were also in films. In a span of just 10 years, Leela Desai acted in 21 films and then left films. She settled in Darjeeling with her mother. Baburao Patel said this about Leela Desai….

“What shall be said of Leela Desai, who acted the part of the President’s sister, the mischievous school-girl, and who always took the active part in the love-making between her and Prakash Babu (Saigal)? I cannot find a single fault with her acting. She played up to Saigal splendidly. Even her eyes were most expressive. What naughtiness was in them? As a shameless hussy she could give points to any of your Hollywood actresses–and win. In the love-duet between her and Saigal it was she who always led. She was the personification of Mr. Bernerd Shaw’s pet notion that, in this eternal amorous game, it is the woman who leads the man on and not, as is commonly supposed, the other way about. From the moment she jumped down her school garden-wall and almost fell plump into the arms of Prakash Babu, who was sitting below chewing the end of his reflections anent his dismissal from his job, she never, in a manner of speaking, left him to himself. She would bring down the house with her: “Uske bad kya hua, Prakash Babu?” The poor man had to dance to her measure ever afterwards. When she found herself with him alone she gave us the impression of having fed on honey-dew and on the milk of paradise. Then, in addition to her sparkling dialogue and supremely ‘alive’ acting, she was gorgeous in her dancing performance. Her whole face was a mirror in which her thoughts were reflected. She was an imp of mischief from commencement to conclusion.”

The onset of second world war from 1939 to 1945 imposed several restrictions on the film industry. One of them was to get extra quota of raw film, the producer had to make one Propaganda film as a war effort of the British. Many big film houses suffered ( New Theatres actually broke down) due to this. Raw film was available in Black market at an exorbitant price ( many people made millions in such Black market of essential commodities and they invested in film industry later).

Film Miss Devi-44 was one such film of propaganda. Unfortunately, by the time the film got completed, censored and finally got released the war had almost ended, thereby losing the very purpose of the film. Germany had surrendered on 8-5-1945. USA dropped Atom Bombs on Japan on 6th and 9th August 1945. Japan surrendered on 2-9-1945 and finally war ended totally. Miss Devi-44 was censored in 1944, but was released on 10-8-1945 in Capitol Theatres, Bombay. By that time the relevance of war propaganda had lost its sheen and need. This affected the film’s running. Another film released almost same time on the same theme was Panna, made by Navyug Films of Acharya Atre. Of course, the lead role of film Panna was done by Geeta Nizami, who was no match to leela Desai in any way !

According to Film India, october-45 issue the story of Miss Devi was about Twin sisters Rani and Devi (Leela Desai). Rani becomes a spy for Japan, whereas Devi is sober, homely, beautiful etc. Devi falls in love with Dr. Ramesh (Surendra).Being a story of twins, there were many scenes of misunderstandings, comedy, song and dances. In the end Rani gets punishment and Devi gets Dr.Ramesh.

Here is a song by Rajkumari with an unknown male. Enjoy this rare song.

“Jigar”(1949) was directed by Bhagwan for Chandni Chitra Production. The movie had Bhagwan, Leela Gupte, Vasantrao, Baburao etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Jigar”(1949) to appear in the blog. This romantic expression of love “panghat” song is sung by Rajkumari, C Ramchandra and chorus. Ehsan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Bhagwan and Leela Gupte. My guess could be wrong, seeing that I had made the same guess of actors for a C Ramchandra- Lata duet from this movie in the past as well. 🙂


Song-Mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage (Jigar)(1949) Singers-Rajkumari, C Ramchandra, Lyrics-Ehsan Rizvi, MD-C Ramchandra
Chorus

Lyrics

mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage

raste mein sainyyaa ka ghar laage
raste mein sainyya ka ghar laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage

sainyya to ghar chhod aaye hain tere dwaare
phirte hain tere peechhey kheton mein maare maare
kyun tujhko sainyya se darr laage
ho
kyun tujhko sainyya se darr laage

mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage

maare maare phiroge tum
haath nahin aaungi
main haath nahin aaungi
maare maare phiroge tum
haath nahin aaungi
main haath nahin aaungi
gora mukh dikha ke main
aur bhi tarsaaungi
gora mukh dikha ke main
aur bhi tarsaaungi
dekho na
tumhri najar laage
ho
dekho na
tumhri najar laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage
mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage
ho darr laage

aurat ke aage hathh na chalegi
aurat ke aage hathh na chalegi
apna apna kaam dekho
daal na galegi
apna apna kaam dekho
daal na galegi
ab chaahe saari umar laage
ho
ab chaahe saari umar laage

mohe panghat pe jaate darr laage

“Vikramadiyta”(1945) was directed by Vijay Bhatt for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The historical movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Ratnamala, Baburao Pendharkar, Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Bhagwandas, Jillo etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Vikramadiyta”(1945) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rajkumari and Manna Dey. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankarrao Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair.

I have not been able to get the lyrics of this song right at one place. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the gaps/ suggest corrections in the lyrics wherever applicable. The lyrics of this romantic song are in chaste Sanskritised Hindi, which to mind is quite appropriate and extremely suitable for a song of this nature. It is a rare song that deserves to be better known among music lovers. To those who may be wondering, this song is about a ras ka lobhi bhanwra getting trapped inside a flower. The lady is wondering why the lotus flower is swaying despite there being no breeze, and the gentleman (King Vikramaditya most probably) explains that is a bhanwra, trapped inside the flower that is trying to come out. Very nice imagination from the poet.


Song-Hain gagan mein baadal thahre huye(Vikramaditya)(1945) Singers-Rajkumari, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Shankar Rao Vyas

यूं कमल बता क्यों काँप रहा
फिर कहो कमल क्यों काँप रहा

“Naseeb”(1945) was directed by Vedi for Silver Films, Bombay. The movie had Pramila, Kumar, David, Krishnkant, Sunetra, Jillo, Nazma, Leela Mishra, Chandabai, Moone Agha, Agha Jaan, Ghori etc in it.

This “social movie”, also called “Can’t help it” had nine obscure songs in it that were penned by three lyricists and the songs were sung by at least four singers.

Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Naseeb”(1945) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rajkumari. I C Kapoor is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

The song, talking about “guzra zamaana” certainly evokes feelings of nostalgia among the listeners.


Song-Unhen yaad aaye guzra zamaana (Naseeb)(1945) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-I C Kapoor, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye

unki galiyon mein meri mulaakaaten
ho mere sapnon ki duniya basaana
unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye
haan unhen yaad aaye
unhen yaad aaye

hare kheton mein peepal nishaani

hare kheton mein peepal nishaani
do dilon ki wo meethhi kahaani
tera bansi baja ke bulaana
tere bansi baja ke bulaana
hamen yaad aaye

mere dil mein sada tum rahoge
mere dil mein sada tum rahoge

tumhen yaad aaye guzra zamaana
ho more angna mein chupke se aana

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

It is an interesting exercise to find out what well known HFM personalities did on their debut.

Based on their achievements, one may well think that people started succeeding right from the beginning of their careers. In most cases, that is hardly the case, though.
