Although not listed in the anniversaries list on our blog, a message yesterday from Mahesh ji reminded that it was the remembrance day of the music director Robin Chatterji. Some more discussion followed in which it was mentioned that Rafi Sb had never sung under the  baton of this music director. Something tickled in the memory and I searched through the Geet Kosh listings and my collection, coming up with this wonderful solo of Rafi Sb, that he has sung for Robin Chatterjee, in a Bhojpuri film.

Remembering Robin Chatterjee on the anniversary of his passing away (2nd April, 1976).

As is the fate of many such lesser known and lesser appreciated artists, there is very little information available about him. His date of birth is recorded as 8th January, 1914. No details about his family or early years is available. One name is available – his first teacher of classical music was Keshab Ganesh Dhekan. Robin started his career with the venerable New Theatres, in their music department. He sang in the chorus line for NT films like ‘Adhikar’ (1938).

Some records indicate that worked as an assistant to music director Anupam Ghatak. He and Anupam had learnt music from the same teacher (KH Dhekan). Apparently he assisted Anupam Ghatak with some of his films during 1939-40.

Information about his earliest films as an independent music director is not very specific. Based on Geet Kosh listings, the first Hindi film where we see his name appear as a music director is ‘Raaj Lakshmi’ (1945). Listings show that he shared the music direction responsibility for this film with Dhiren Mitra. This film was produced under the banner of MP Productions, Calcutta (now Kolkata). This film has the distinction of being the debut film for Talat Mehmood, as a singer in Hindi films. Prior to this, he had sung under the pseudonym of Tapan Kumar, all recordings being for Bangla films or for non-film Hindi and Bangla songs. The debut solo songs for him in this film are “Jaago Musaafir Jaago, Kholo Mann Ka Dwaar” and “Tu Sun Le Matwaale”.

Browsing through the Geet Kosh, we find the following films listed with his name as the music director –

‘Raj Laxmi’ (1945) (w Dhiren Mitra)
‘Tum Aur Main’ (1947)
‘Wo Dono’ (1947)
‘Sabyasachi’ (1948)
‘Ratnadeep’ (1952)
‘Firdaus’ (1953) (w Roshan)
‘Pehli Shaadi’ (1953)
‘Afreeka’ (1954)
‘Majboori’ (1954)
‘Shobhaa’ (1954)
‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ (1956) (w OP Nayyar)
‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ (1964)
‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ (1973)

and possiblye ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ (1958), for which the name of the music director is given simply as Robin.

Of these, the credits for ‘Raj Lakshmi’ are shared with Dhiren Mitra, for ‘Firdaus’ are shared with Roshan and for ‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ are shared with OP Nayyar. The film ‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ is a Bhojpuri film. And the film ‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ was probably completed sometimes in the first half of 1960s, but its release was delayed by many years, finally releasing in 1973.

The above list of films shows a career with sizeable gaps. However, there is other information that says he was also active, rather very active in the Bangla film industry, as well as in the non-film and folk song genres. There are more details available about his films in Bangla. He has scored music for many films starring Suchitra Sen, for whom he has preferentially used the voice of Sandhya Mukherjee.

One additional bit of information from my own memory. I do remember seeing the name Robin Chatterjee as the sound recordist in the credits of some films. I am not sure that such credits are referring to the same person – possibly so.

My personal experience, and also preference, is that to appreciate the music and songs of lesser known and lesser discussed artists is to pull together as many songs of such an artist, as possible, and then listen to them at a stretch, within one, two, three sittings. In my humble opinion, this way one gets a much better feel for both the quality and the quantity of the body of work for the artist. This in turn provides a much better and a wider appreciation of his or her work. In my effort to pull together information and body of work about such artists, I find that I have not yet come across a single instance where I may have failed to appreciate the quality of work created by the artist. For that reason, I humbly state that I never will dismiss an artist only because he or she is lesser known and his/her body of work is obscure and not easily accessible. The same has been my experience with the songs tuned and composed by Robin Chatterjee. We already have 24 songs on our blog, for which he is the music director – please check out in case interested.

About this film, there are no details available, other than the name of the production banner – Messers Technicians Enterprise. No listings of actors is available either. Only the name of the music director, the singers and a list of 4 songs is available.

About this film – it is produced under the banner of Messers Technicians Enterprise, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The name should  be very familiar – PL Santoshi has been active in Hindi films as a lyricist, story/screenplay writer, dialogue writer and director, since the mid 1930s, all the way to his passing away in 1978. The star cast is listed as Sujit Kumar, Saeeda Khan, Sabita Chatterjee, Tarun Kumar, Jahar Rai etc. It is a story about the sacrifices the wife (Saeeda Khan) makes to care for and nurse her husband (Sujit Kumar), who is suffering from the memory loss.

The Geet Kosh lists 4 songs for this film. There are two solos by Suman Kalyanpur, one solo by Rafi Sb (today’s presentation), and one duet of Rafi Sb and Sandhya Mukherjee. Although the name of the lyricist is not specifically mentioned in any source, it is very likely that PL Santoshi has most likely written some or all songs of this film. However, it needs to be confirmed.
[Ed Note: PL Santoshi has directed 20+ films during his career, and he has written some or all songs for 15 of them.]

Regardless, it is a naughty, wonderfully playful song of appreciation – appreciation of the beauty of a young belle. Listen and enjoy.

Thanks to Sadanand ji for providing the information about the film, from the book by Avijit Ghosh.]

[Ed Note: I believe that the lyrics in the Bhojpuri dialect are not difficult to follow. As the lines are perused, there may be a little transliteration required for one line. In case there is a comment/request, the transliteration of the full lyrics can be provided. The difficult line maybe, “peear peear galba pa chhitke lallaiya” or “पीयर पीयर गलबा पे छिटके लल्लइया”. In simpler Hindi, the line says “pyaare pyaare peele peele gaalon pe laali chhitki hai” or “प्यारे प्यारे पीले पीले गालों पे लाली छिटकी है”. 🙂 ]
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear AK ji for making the correction in the above transliterated line of lyrics.]

Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

For the general Hindi film audience, Suchitra Sen (real name: Roma Dasgupta) is synonymous with her lead roles in ‘Bambai Ka Babu’ (1960) with Dev Anand, ‘Mamta’ (1966) with Ashok Kumar and ‘Aandhi’ (1975) with Sanjeev Kumar. The second category of audience with academic interest in Hindi films will add four more of her Hindi films – ‘Devdas’ (1955) in the role of Paro with Dilip Kumar, ‘Musafir’ (1957) with Shekhar, ‘Champakali’ (1957) with Bharat Bhushan and ‘Sarhad’ (1960) with Dev Anand. Those in the latter category of Hindi film buffs would also know that Suchitra Sen worked in many Bengali films and the Bengali film audience loved to watch their favourite on-screen couple, Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar.

I was in the second category insofar as Suchitra Sen was concerned until recently. But in my quest to get a few rare Hindi film songs in Bengali films made me to watch some of the popular and critically acclaimed Bengali films of the golden era (1950-75). In this process, I came to know about the important contributions made by Suchitra Sen and Uttam Kumar among others in reviving the Bengali film industry after the decline of big film productions banners like New Theatres, M P Productions (of P C Barua) and the collapse of the studio system.

Based on a number of articles available on-line including some from Gopal Krishna Roy, a film journalist with United News of India who remained one of the very few close confidants of Suchitra Sen until her death, I have given below some interesting aspects of her filmy career based on these readings:

1. Suchitra Sen (06/04/1931 – 17/01/2014) migrated from then East Bengal (now Bangla Desh) to Kolkata with her family in 1947. She joined film industry in 1952 when she was already married to Dibanath Sen, a Marine Engineer and the son of an Industrialist in 1947 at the age of 16.

2. She acted in her fist film ‘Shesh Kothay’ (1952, Bangla) which was never released. Her first officially released film was ‘Saat Number Kayedi’ (1953, Bangla)

3. Her second released film was ‘Sharey Chauttor’ (1953, Bangla), a light comedy film which was also her first film with matinee idol, Uttam Kumar, then nick named in the Tollygunj studio circle as a ‘flop hero’ because all the films he worked during 1948-52 were box office failures. With this film, Uttam Kumar made an impressive turnaround in his filmy career with Suchitra Sen. From this film onward, Bengali filmy audience adored them as the most iconic romantic pair in the Bengali films.

4. During her filmy career (1953-78), Suchitra Sen worked in 61 films (including 7 Hindi films) out of which she paired with Uttam Kumar in as many as 30 films. Almost all of their films were box office hits.

5. When Suchitra Sen was 39, she lost her husband, Dibanath Sen in 1970 while he was on a visit to USA. However, she kept her shooting schedules, more or less, as planned to avoid financial losses to the producers.

6. A glance through her filmography and brief story lines of most of her films gives an impression that Suchitra Sen had handled her filmy career, especially from 1960, onward very professionally. She appears to be selective in accepting the films. Most of her films have a strong story-line and she had almost equal footage in films along with lead actors. In this process, she had ensured that she had ample scope for portraying her characters in the films and was not over-exposed to her audience.

7. Suchitra Sen declined the offer of Satyajit Ray’s film because he had put a condition that she had to give bulk dates for shooting and during the making of the film, she should not work in any other films. Satyajit Ray decided to abandon the film rather than taking any other female actress. She had also declined the offer of Raj Kapoor to work in one of his films (My wild guess is that it was for ‘Sangam’ (1964) because he had also made an offer to Uttam Kumar for a role in his film ‘Sangam’ (1964) which he had also declined. The role went to Rajendra Kumar.)

8. Suchitra Sen was the first Bengali film actress to get the best actress award in any International Film Festival for her role in Bangla film ‘Saptapadi’ (1961) in Moscow International Film Festival, 1963.

9. After the box office failure of her last film ‘Pranay Pasha’ (1978), Suchitra Sen retired from the film industry at the age of 47. It was first thought that she had timed her retirement at the peak of her career. However, over a period of time, it became evident that with retirement from the films, she had also shunned public life. She spent her last 35 years in her house as recluse, confining herself with close circles of family and a few friends.

During her last 35 years, Suchitra Sen completely avoided public exposure. Even during the death of Uttam Kumar in 1980, she visited his house after mid-night to offer her condolence. It is believed that she had decline to accept Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 2005 mainly to avoid the public appearance. In 2012, Government of West Bengal gave her ‘Banga Bibushan Award’ but she did not attend the function. Moon Moon Sen, her daughter accepted the Award on her behalf.

Suchitra Sen suffered from lung infections for which she was admitted in a Kolkata hospital sometime in December 2013. She had almost recovered from her ailment but on January 17, 2014, she got a cardiac arrest which took her life. As per her wish, her body was put in the casket with tinted glasses and was cremated as the earliest (in about 5 hours from the time of her death). So even in death, she ensured her privacy.

Dilip Kumar who had worked with Suchitra Sen in her first Hindi film ‘Devdas’ (1955) in the role of Paro, paid tributes to her upon her death in January 2014 which are reproduced below:

Suchitra had peerless, expressive eyes. She conveyed volumes with a single look. During an intense scene in Devdas, I had to look straight into her eyes and convey romance filled with pathos. She reacted uniquely, looking with equal intensity at me and doing a slight lip movement which was excellent. Bimal da complimented her after that shot and so did I.

Professional to the core, Suchitra maintained a distance from film folk and never opened up unless she was comfortable with the person she was interacting with. She preferred to work in silence. But she never disrespected anyone. As an artiste, she gave full respect to even a spot boy.

Her Hindi had a Bengali accent but it sounded sweet. She could give five modulations to a single dialogue. After Devdas, we worked in Musafir in 1957, but we were not paired together. I will never forget the serenity she lent to the bhajan, ‘man re hari naam karna’ by Lata Mangeshkar.

We shared a great work rapport, but I must confess, her pairing with Uttam Kumar was the greatest. Suchitra was unparalleled in ‘Saat Paake Bandha’, ‘Uttar Phalguni’ and ‘Deep Jwele Jai’. An actress of international calibre, her looks were simply haunting. [Source: The Times of India, updated version dated 17/01/2017].

Many of Suchitra Sen’s Bangla films were not only box office hits, some of them were critically acclaimed and were remade in Hindi like ‘Mamta’ (1966) from ’Uttar Phalguni’ (1963), ‘Kora Kaagaz’ (1974) from ‘Saat Paake Bandha’ (1963), ‘Khamoshi’ (1966) from ‘Deep Jwele Jaai’ (1959) etc.

I am presenting a Hindi song ‘zindagi ki ye bhool thhi’ from the film ‘Uttar Phalguni’ (1963, Bangla) sung by Sandhya Mukherjee. The name of the lyricist is not known. The song was set to music by Robin Chatterjee.

Suchitra Sen had a double role – both mother and daughter in this film which was produced by Uttam Kumar. But he did not act in this film. Suchitra Sen later did the same double role in the Hindi version ‘Mamta’ (1966).

Unfortunately, the video clip of the song is not available. In fact, I did not find the song in the DVD of the film. Since Sandhya Mukherjee had sung for Suchitra Sen in this film, I guess, the song was picturized on Suchitra Sen. The wordings of the song give me an impression of a mujra song, the similar situational song in Hindi version of the film could be rahte thhe kabhi jinke dil mein.

Lyrics

tasveer kiski bas gayi

khel samajh ke prem ke
jaal mein main to phans gayi
lut gayi dil ki har khushi

hansne ko main taras gayi
saahil pe la ke naav ko
saahil pe la ke naav ko
mallah khud dubo gaya
zindagi ki ye bhool thhi
pyaar kisi se ho gaya
zindagi ki ye bhool thhi

Today, 4th October, is the 88th birthday of Sandhya Mukherjee. The grand old dame is one of the premier playback singers in Bangla cinema. In Hindi films, her contribution is limited to about 30 songs. Her involvement in Hindi films starts with the 1948 film ‘Jhoothi Kasmen’, and her singing assignments are spread over a decade and a half, till the mid 1960s.

A chance encounter with this song prompted the preparation of this post. I came across this song just a few hours ago, and listening to it was love at first hear. Such a lovely melody and arrangement, and such wonderful rendition, this song belongs to that category of unknown and hidden gems, which surprise the listener with their simplicity and beauty. I have listened to it many times since I discovered it earlier in the evening, and I do not seem to be getting enough of it.

The film is ‘Ratnadeep’ from 1952. The film is produced and directed by the legendary Debaki Kumar Bose, for the banner of Chitramaya, Calcutta. The cast of actors is listed as Anuva Gupta, Manju Dey, Molina Devi, Chhaya Devi, Tangamani, Harini, Bakul Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Pahadi Sanyal, Niteesh Mukherji, Tulsi Chakravarty, Kamal Mishra, Raj Kumar Soni, Sudheer  Chakraborty, Gokul Mukherji, and Gauri Shankar. The film is based on the Bangla novel of the same name, written by Prabhat Kumar Mukherjee.

Eight songs are listed for this film. The music director is Robin Chatterji. Two of the songs are traditional bhajans originally composed by Meerbai and Vidyapati. The remaining six songs have been written by the songwriters Pandit Madhur and Mahendra Pran. However, the lyricist for each individual song is not specifically identified.

We wish Sandhya ji a very happy 88th birthday. May she be blessed with many more years of good health and happiness.

“Pehli Shaadi”(1953) was produced by K S Daryani and directed by Ram Daryani for Krishin Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, Bharat Bhushan, Motilal, Gope, Manorama, Gulab, Leela Mishra, Kammo, Chandu etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the third song from “Pehli Shaadi”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Hemant Kumar. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that Asha Bhonsle’s voice figured in six out of ten songs of the movie, it would seem that she was the playback singer for the leading lady of the movie, viz. Nargis. So, this song must have been picturised on Nargis.

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


Song-Mose kahi na jaayegi tose suni na jaayegi(Pehli Shaadi)(1953) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mere gham ki daastaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

nagri nagri dwaare dwaare
ek deewaana ye hi pukaare
nagri nagri dwaare dwaare
ek deewaana ye hi pukaare
in do nainon ke maare
in do nainon ke maare
bechaare ho sajan jaayen kahaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

main majboor mera dil majboor hai
tose main pyaar karoon itna kasoor
mera itna kasoor hai
main majboor mera dil majboor hai
tose main pyaar karoon itna kasoor
tere dar ka jogi ban ke
tere dar ka jogi ban ke
meet mere man ke ho sajan jaaun kahaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi
mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

“Majboori”(1954) also known as “Chhoti Bahan”(1954) was directed by Ram Daryani for Murli Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Balraj Sahani, Shyama, Gope, Kumar, Jeevan, Gulab, Pramila etc in it.

The movie had 8 songs in it which were penned by D N Madhok (7) and Pandit Gaafil (1).

Three songs have been covered in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Majboori”(1954) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The song is penned by D N Madhok. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

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


Song-Aankhen ro ro haar gayin (Majboori)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

aankhen ro ro haar gayin
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
jo tumne gharonde baandhe thhe
haaye wo gharonde choor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
ek bujhe dil ko lekar
hum us duniya se door huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

“Raaj Laxmi”(1945) was Premendra Mitra for M P Productions, Calcutta. The movie had Kanan Devi, Chhabi Vishwas, Natwar, Jahar, Poornima, Tandon, Ifthikhar Ahmad, Rai Mohan, Puri, Talat Mehmood etc.

The movie had seven songs in it. HFGK mentions eight songs but the eighth song is a private song.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Kanan Devi. Suresh Chaudhary is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors, but the distribution of songs among them is not known.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Kanan Devi herself.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Main sharmaayi kyun sharmaayi (Raaj Laxmi)(1945) Singer-Kanan Devi, Lyrics-Suresh Chaudhary, MD-Robin Chatterji, Dhiren Ghosh

Lyrics

Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi
Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi
jab paas thhe wo
main door rahi
kyon door rahi

ab chale gaye ae ae
man le ke gaye
o man le ke gaye
main pachhtaayee
kyun door rahi
Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi

haan aan aan
ruki ghaat par
jab thhi naiyya
mujhe bulaaye ae
na wo khewaiyya
haan aan aan aan aan
wo chale gaye
main kyun na gayi
kyun door rahi

ujad gayi aasha ki bagiya
chhaayi ab sapnon pe duniya(?) aa aa
ujad gayi aasha ki bagiya
chhaayi ab sapnon pe duniya(?)
guzre dinon ki saari kahaani
guzre dinon ki saari kahaani
aansuon mein doob gayi
main door rahi
main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi

“Shobha”(1954) was directed by Niren Lahiri for S B Productions, Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chhabi Biswas, Manju De, Shikha Bagh, Purnendu Mukherji, Rani Bannerji, Rekha Chatterji, Trilochan Jha etc in it.

This movie was based on a story written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The movie was also simultaneously made in Bangla as “Shubhada”. That explains the predominance of Bangla artists in the making of this movie.

“Shobha”(1954) had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Shobha”(1954) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song was picturised on Abhi Bhattacharya.

This song is an archtypical Talat Mehmood song. I suppose listening to a Talat Mehmood song those days (even today) may have been akin to watching Vijay Merchant bat. 🙂 Serene unhurried batting. Perfect forward defence, occasional singles, and some delicately placed boundaries on some rare occasions. No agricultural shots whatsoever. 🙂


Song-Mohabbat na hoti zamaana na hota (Shobha)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli
kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli ee
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi
bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

A voice, that is as soft and pleasing as cool breeze. And a singing that is most natural, with no efforts for any artificial embellishments to the rendition.  A voice that is not formally trained. And yet, this voice and the persona behind it, have become synonymous with being the first lady of Bangla cinema.

Remembering Kaanan Devi on her remembrance day. She passed away this day (17th July) in 1992.
