Blog Day : 3831 Post No. : 14838

Today, January 13th 2019 is the 92nd birth anniversary of one of the prominent Hindi film producers-directors who debuted in early 1950s as a director. In the 1960s, he mostly produced and directed romantic and musical films. In the 1970s and thereafter, he produced and directed films with emotional contents. He is Shakti Samanta, a self-made man after struggling for almost a decade to get a firm foothold in Hindi film industry. He had made immense contributions to Hindi film industry.

Shakti Samanta (13/01/1926 – 09/04/2009) was born in Burdwan (now Bardhaman in West Bengal). His father was an engineer who died in an accident while Shakti Samanta was a child. So, he was sent to his uncle’s place in Dehradun where he did the schooling. After completion of his intermediate, he came back to Calcutta (Kolkata) and completed his graduation in 1944.

Shakti Samanta went back to his uncle’s place to help him in his business. During his school days, he had become a fan of films produced by New Theatres and Bombay Talkies for their emotional and romantic contents respectively. So he had a fascination for becoming an singer-actor in Hindi films. Obviously, he spent more time in acting in local drama theatres than in the business work for which he was reprimanded by his uncle. Sometime in early 1947, he decided to leave his uncle’s house for Bombay (Mumbai) to pursue his wish to become a singer-actor. He took a job of a teacher in a Urdu school in Dapoli, about 200 kms from Mumbai to sustain himself while he scouted for acting roles in Mumbai.

Since it was a Muslim-run school, every Friday, Shakti Samanta would visit Mumbai to take a round of studios and return to Dapoli by late evening. There were many Bengalis in the Bombay Talkies which enabled him at least to gain entry into Bombay Talkies studio. Eventually, he got a free-lance job without pay but with free food at the canteen of the Bombay Talkies. Since he was proficient in Hindi and Urdu in addition to Bengali, he got work of translating the scripts written in Bengali into Hindi for director, Phani Majumdar for which he was paid.

One day, he met S D Burman who was composing music for ‘Do Bhai’ (1947), to get a playback singing work. S D Burman told him that though his voice was good, it was not good enough for the playback singing. So he advised Shakti Samanta to look for work in some other departments though he offered to take him for chorus singing. With this, it was the end of his dream of becoming a singer but the acting bug in him remained.

It was Ashok Kumar who told him to forget about becoming an actor and instead concentrate on film direction. In Bombay Talkies, he became the First Assistant to Director, Phani Majumdar. At that time, Guru Dutt was the First Assistant to Director, Gyan Mukherjee. When Phani Majumdar had no assignment, Shakti Samanta used to work as Second Assistant to Gyan Mukherjee. On the other hand, when Gyan Mukherjee had no assignments, Guru Dutt used to work as Second Assistant to Phani Majumdar. So in 1947, Guru Dutt and Shakti Samanta were familiar with each other. While Guru Dutt could get his first directorial assignment for ‘Baazi’ (1951), it was a long wait for Shakti Samanta to make a debut as a director in 1955.

Post-partition, after the initial hiccups due to migration of film artists and technicians, Shakti Samanta got some assignments like assistant to the director Satish Nigam in ‘Sunhere Din’ (1948) and to Phani Majumdar in ‘Tamasha’ (1952) and ‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954). He wrote script and dialogues for Bombay Talkies ‘Baadbaan’ (1954).

Shakti Samanta’s debut film as a director was ‘Bahu’ (1955) which he got by a sheer luck. The film was produced by Bikram Pahwa which was to be directed by the writer, Vijendra Gaud. However, he had already signed his first directorial venture, ‘Kasturi’ (1954) and Shakti Samanta was his Assistant Director for this film. Vijendra Gurd was under contract not to take up direction in any other film until ‘Kasturi’ 1954) was released. Shakti Samanta got the opportunity to direct his debut film ‘Bahu’ (1955) as director. The film did not do well on the box office.

During the making of the ‘Bahu’ (1955), Shakti Samanta was signed to direct A. A. Nadiadwala’s film ‘Inspector’ (1956) in which his mentor, Ashok Kumar was paired with Geeta Bali. The film became a hit and with this film, Shakti Samanta was tagged as a successful director for the crime thrillers. After directing ‘Hill Station’ 1957 and ‘Sheroo’ (1957), Shakri Samanta floated his own banner, Shakti Films in 1957.

The first film under his banner, Shakti Films was ‘Howrah Bridge’ (1958) in which his mentor, Ashok Kumar was paired with Madhubala. The film was also a crime thriller and became hugely successful in terms of box office. This gave him enough money to produce and direct a film in the genre of social drama, ‘Insaan Jaag Utha’ (1959). The film did the average business despite some excellent song compositions by S D Burman.

Shakti Samanta directed next two successful thrillers, ‘Jalli Notes’ (1960) and ‘Singapore’ 1960) for other producers. His association with Shammi Kapoor and Jaikishan of Shankar-Jaikishan started with the film ‘Singapore’ (1960) and thereafter they became close friends. The trios were known as Shammi, Shakki and Jackie.

With ‘Naughty Boy’ (1962), Shakti Samanta entered into his first romantic comedy genre with Kishore Kumar and Madhubala in the lead roles. When about 10 reels of film were shot, Madhubala fell ill. She was taken to London for treatment. Since there was some uncertainty in her resuming shooting, Shakti Samanta replaced her with Kalpana. All shots of Madhubala were reshot with Kalpana. The film took a long time to complete as Kishore Kumar also got busy with taking care of Madhubala. To make the matter worst, S D Burman, the film’s music director, also fell ill. As a result, except for one song, rest of the songs of the film were recorded by R D Burman and Jaidev.

The delay in the completion of the film put Shakti Samanta in financial difficulties. He approached his good friend, Shammi Kapoor for finance who advised him to produce a new film in which he would act and partly finance the film. So ‘China Town’ (1962) was conceived. The film was released in August 1962 and became a box office hit. With money flowing in from the success of ‘China Town’ (1962), Shakti Samanta completed ‘Naughty Boy’ (1962) and got released in November 1962. The film failed at the box office.

After the debacle of ‘Naughty Boy’ (1962), Shakti Samanta seems to have shifted the focus on producing and directing the genre of romantic and musical films. He had with him now Shammi Kapoor and Jaikishan to support such a genre of films. The film ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1964) was conceptualized with his two friends in mind. He had roped in a new comer, Sharmila Tagore whose parents were the family friend of Shakti Samanta, to act opposite Shammi Kapoor. It was a foregone conclusion that Shankar-Jaikishan would be the music director.

When O P Nayyar came to know about the new film, he requested Shakti Samanta to at least listen to his tunes before deciding on the music director. He also invited Shammi Kapoor for a musical sitting. Both were so much impressed with some 40 odds tunes O P Nayyar churned out, that both Shakti Samanta and Shammi Kapoor decided to take O P Nayyar as music director for ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1964) and selected 12 tunes out of which 9 tunes were used in the film and remaining 3 tunes were used in ‘Saawan KI Ghata’ (1966). The film was a blockbuster on the box office chart.

Shakti Samanta had lined up 3 films with Shammi Kapoor and Jaikishan combination. The first film, ‘Evening In Paris’ (1967) was a high budget film which were partly shot abroad. The film became successful at the box office. The second film ‘Pagla Kahin Ka’ (1970) was directed by Shakti Samanta for Ajit Chakravarty. The film was an average success. The third film, ‘Jaane Anjaane’ (1971) was in the planning stage when Shakti Samanta felt that Shammi Kapoor needed to reduce his weight before he started shooting for the film. He gave Shammi Kapoor six months’ time to reduce his weight. In the interregnum, Shakti Samanta decided to produce and direct a low budget social film ‘Aradhana’ (1969) which was his favourite genre inspired from the films of New Theatre. The saga of making of ‘Aradhana’ (1969) is interesting one.

Sometime in early 1960s, Sachin Bhowmik, the story, screen-play and dialogue writer had read out the story of Aradhana to Shakti Samanta. While he liked the story very much, he did not venture to make a film on the story as he felt that it would be difficult to get the lead actors to the roles envisaged in the story. This was also the views of Hrishikesh Mukherjee when Sachin Bhowmik had read out the story to him also. Since Shakti Samanta had now time to make a low budget film, he recalled the story of Aradhana and decided to make a low budget film.

Sharmila Tagore who was introduced in Hindi films by Shakti Samanta and Rajesh Khanna who was the discovery of United Producers-Filmfare Talent Contest (1965) in which Shakti Samanta was one of the judges, were taken for the lead roles. Sharmila Tagore was apprehensive of doing the mother’s role in her early filmy career. Rajesh Khanna had felt that his role had considerably lesser length than that of Sharmila Tagore whose presence in the film was from first to last frames. Shakti Samanta had to do a hard work to convince both the actors to remove their apprehensions as the roles were challenging from the acting point of view.

Since the story of the film was akin to the Bengali type of stories with emotional contents, Shakti Samanta was keen on S D Burman to take up the music direction of the film. However, here also he had to convince S D Burman to take up the music direction for the film. S D Burman rued that Shakti Samanta had so far engaged him as a music director only for his low budget films.

Just a day before ‘Aradhana’ (1969) was to start shooting, Surinder Kapoor, the producer of ‘Ek Shriman Ek Shrimati’ (1969) starring Shashi Kapoor and Babita invited Shakti Samanta to see rushes of the final climax of his film. He was shocked to see that the climax was the same as that was written for Aradhana. This was possible because both films were written by Sachin Bhowmick. The next day, Shakti Samanta had made up his mind to scrap Aradhana and asked Gulshan Nanda to work on his story, ‘Kati Patang’. But Gulshan Nanda along with another writer, Madhusudan Kalelkar convinced him that instead of scrapping the film, let there be some changes the second half of the story. Both of them reworked the second half of Aradhana in the next few hours and saved the film being scrapped.

When everything was set to start the shooting ‘Aradhana’, film distributors were not happy with casting the lead roles. They were of the view that the audience would not accept Sharmila Tagare in the role of mother who had so far done the glamorous roles. They also felt risky to give a new comer Rajesh Khanna the double role in the film. Again, Shakti Samanta was required to convince them that the lead actors would justify their roles.

‘Aradhana’ (1969) was completed in less than 6 months and was released sometime in October 1969. I had watched this film during the first week of its release as tickets were easily available. However, the box office collections of the film picked up from the second week onward mainly through words of mouth publicity. The film became the top grosser among the Hindi films released in 1969. The box office success of this film and later of ‘Bandhan’ (1969) and ‘Do Raaste’ (1970) made Rajesh Khanna a super star. In a print media interview, Shakti Samanta had acknowledged that from the gramophone record sales of ‘Aradhana’ only, he produced next five films. The records were dubbed and released in 5 languages, and were hits in every language.

With the success of ‘Aradhana’, Shakti Samanta ventured into producing more of social genre of films like ‘Kati Patang’ (1971), ‘Amar Prem’ (1972), ‘Anuraag’ (1972) which were also successful at the box office. However, after mid-1970, except for ‘Great Gambler’ (1979), Shakti Samanta could not get as much success at the box office as he got for his films in early 1970s. Just to balance the box office earnings, Shakti Samanta started producing bilingual films which were made in Hindi as well as in Bengali. He produced and directed the first bilingual film, ‘Amanush’ (1975) followed by ‘Anand Asharam’ (1979), ‘Barsaat Ki Ek Raat’ (1981), ‘Aar Paar’ (1985) etc.

In the 1990s, Shakti Samanta’s films could not match with the changing taste of the film audience. ‘Geetanjali’ (1993) was his last film as a director which failed at he box office. During this period, he had also become busy with his role as Chairman of the Film Censor Board for 7 years (1991-98) and as a Chairman of Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute, Kolkata for 2 years. Hence, some of the films produced under the banner of Shakti Films were directed by his son, Ashim Samanta.

During his 5 decades of long filmy career, Shakti Samanta directed 37 films and produced 43 films under his banner, Shakti Films. He also co-produced and directed an Indo-Bangla Desh Bengali film in 1984 which became a super hit. He set up Aradhana Sound Service, the digital audio post-production facilities films. He received Filmfare Award for ‘Aradhana’ (1969), ‘Anuraag’ (1972) and ‘Amaanush’ (1975) under ‘Best Films’ category.

Shakti Samanta breathed his last on April 9, 2009 after a brief illness due to stroke.

For the occasion, I have selected a song from one of the films from Shakti Samanta’s struggling years to establish himself in the Hindi film industry. The song is ‘ye maara wo maara koi jeeta koi haara’ from ‘Hill Station’ (1957). The song is sung by Geeta Dutt on the lyrics of S H Bihari which is set to music by Hemant Kumar. From the lyrics and the tone of the song, it appears to be a club song probably picturised on Sheila Vaz.

Some information has also been sourced from the interview Ashim Samanta gave for a FM Radio Channel in 2016.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Modern Theatre, Bombay. The movie had Ajit, Nalini Jaywant, I S Johar, Kamaljeet, Uday Laxmi, Shanti, Harbans Lal, Saroja, Anil Dutta etc in it.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) had eleven songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

The song picturisation shows Nalini Jaiwant remonstating with the Almighty- with Lord Krishna to be precise. The picturisation also shows some men listening to the bhajan from outside though they seem to possess far less devotion towards the Almighty than Nalini Jaiwant. 😉


Song-Har baat hai bigdi huyi bhagwaan bana do(Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan)(1957) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-Hemant Kumar

“Bin Maa Ke Bachche”(1979) was directed by Satyen Bose for S K Enterprises, Bombay. The movie had Dr Shreeram Laagoo, Leela Chitnis, Master Rajesh, Master Raju, Master Bittu, Master Ravi, Baby Sabia, Shekhar Purohit, Dulaari, Bindu, C S Dubey, Kumud Tripathi, Urmila Bhatt, Junior Mehmood, Prem Sagar, Prakash Mishra, Rajrani, Shivraj, Shriram Shashtri, Savita Bajaj, Ghanshyam, Radheshyam etc with special appearances by Tanuja, Mahendra Sandhu, Nazneen, Sudhir, Narendra Nath, and Dev Kumar.

From the above cast as well as the cast, it is easy to guess that the movie must have sunk without a trace. The movie did not have any saleable name in it and as can be guessed from the title it was a dull movie about happless orphan kids.

The movie had six songs in it. I do not recall having heard any song from this movie during its time. I in fact do not recall being aware of this movie either.

Here is the first song from “Bin Maa Ke Bachche”(1979) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Pushpa Pagdhare. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O p Nayyar who by that time had fallen into bad days and he had few friends left in the film indusry where he ruled the roost in the earlier decades.

The song is picturised as a sad lullaby song on two child artists whom I am unable to identify. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

With this song, “Bin Maa Ke Bachche”(1979) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Jo raat ko jaldi soye (Bin Maa Ke Bachche)(1979) Singer-Pushpa Pagdhare, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Hullo Atuldom

“Asli Naqli” that was released in 1986 was directed by Sudarshan Nag. It had a star cast of Shatrughan Sinha- Anita Raaj- Raadhika- Rajnikanth- Amrish Puri- Shakti Kapoor -Ashok Kumar. It had a normal storyline wherein as boy is separated from his wealthy parents in childhood. His parents have only one clue of him- a locket that he is wearing. Upon his father’s death the mother embarks on a mission to trace out her long-lost son with the help of (typically named) Durjan Singh (Amrish Puri). Durjan Singh and his son Shakti Singh (Shakti Kapoor) plant Birju ustaad (Rajnikanth) as the son with the sole motive of plundering the wealthy widow. Then Shatrughan Sinha steps-in and the plot spices up. Further the ladies are there for the song and dance routines. Essentially what this movie had was two superstars with stylised acting and the public had a paisa-vasool feeling. It had a decent run at the box-office.

Today (12 december 2017) this movie makes it debut on the blog on the occasion of Rajnikanth’s birthday. Rajnikanth- on whom various jokes are directed day in and day out. One example: the recent cyclone was because he sneezed. Rajnikanth- whose rise to superstardom is fairy-tale-like. Rajnikanth – the humble giant of the South Indian film industry -he works largely in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada movies but his movies are usually dubbed into other languages too. He has acted in about 20-25 Hindi movies too with Dharmendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Rekha, Shabana Azmi, Zeenat Aman etc as his co-actors. He has the next generation of heroines- Aishwarya Rai, Sonakshi etc- too ready to do miniscule roles just for the pleasure of being in a Rajni film.

The songs of the movie were written by S.H. Bihari- Shamsul Huda Bihari. He was the writer of such classics as “bahut shukriya badi meherbani”; “hai duniya usiki zamaana usika”; “raaton ko chori chori”; “meri jaan tum sadke ehsaan itna kardo” and lots more.
The music director for “Asli Naqli” was Laxmikant- Pyarelal. Today’s song has the voices of Shabbir Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal with (surprise! Surprise!) Laxmikant Kudalkar meaning Laxmikant the music director himself. It is a party song where both the heroes are trying to prove the other as the imposter with Anita Raaj trying to drill sense into them. Seema Deo, Amrish Puri and Shakti Kapoor don’t seem amused by the proceedings.

With this song we also wish the other superstar whose birthday was on the 9th – Shatrughan Sinha. (sorry to have missed it.)
Happy Birthday Thalaiva a.k.a Rajnikanth.

Lyrics

duniya bhar ko dhokha dekar

arre koi kitne chehre badle
pehchaana to jayega

taraasho chaahe jitni baar
ek patthar ke tukde ko o o o
chamak heere ki

us tukde mein hargiz aa nahin sakti
sabhi ganga me dubki maarke
paawan nahin bante ae ae ae
siyahi koyle ki

laakh dho lo jaa nahin sakti
jo jaisa hai ik din
sabko apna rang dikhaayega

nazar waale to bas pahli najar mein aen aen
aadmi ko bhaanp lete hain ae ae ae ae
nigaahein kya milin
nigaahein kya milin
ke tol lete naap lete hain

koi kitna bhi badle khud ko
uska chhal nahin jaata aa aa aa
ke rassi jal toh
ke rassi jal toh jaati hai
par uska bal nahin jaata
kauva hans hi chaal chale toh
hans nahi kehlayega
kauva hans hi chaal chale toh
hans nahin kehlaayega

duniya bhar ko dhokha dekar

zamaane bhar ke aage
apna apna raaz mat kholo
akalmandi isi mein hai
na ye bole na tum bolo
na ye bole na tum bolo
chupchaap raho
khaamosh raho
chupchaap raho
khamosh raho
apnon ko kabhi ilzaam na do
aapas ke in jhagdon se
gharbaar bigadta jaayega

“Naseehat”(1967) was directed by Om Patwar for Deedaar movies, Bombay. The movie had Dara Singh, Rajshree (south), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Ridku, Meena, Saudagar Sngh, Helen, Madhumati etc in it.

Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here is the third song from “Naseehat”(1967) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Helen, with villainous looking characters hovering around, as they always do on a club dance situation like this. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.


Song-Mujhko deewaana na kar (Naseehat)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

boy o boy
boy o boy

mujhko deewaana na kar
aa mere kareeb aa
aaja ke dil tere liye ae
bekaraar hai mera
mujhko deewaana na kar
aa mere kareeb aa
aaja ke dil tera liye ae
bekaraar hai mera
mujhko deewaana na kar

chaahat mein phoolon ki pyaare
kaanton se dar jaana kya
o jaane jaan
duniya waalon se ghabraa kar
jeete jee mar jaana kya o jaane jaan
chaahat mein phoolon ki pyaare
kaanton se dar jaana kya
o jaane jaan
duniya waalon se ghabraakar
jeete jee mar jaana kya o jaane jaan
aaja ke pukaarti hai pyaar ki nazar
kaun si kami hai zara dekh to idhar
jalwe hazaaron hain yahaan
boy o boy
mujhko deewaana na kar
aa mere kareeb aa
aaja ke dil tere liye ae
bekaraar hai mera
mujhko deewaana na kar

tu kya soche
kya hoga anjaam yahaan afsaane ka
o jaane jaan
jo bhi hoga achcha hoga
haal tere deewaane ka
o jaane jaan
tu kya soche
kya hoga anjaam yahaan afsaane ka
o jaane jaan
jo bhi hoga achcha hoga
haal tere deewaane ka
o jaane jaan
dil kisi teer ka nishaana to bane
duniya mein jeene ka bahaana to bane
jeena hi mushkil hai yahaan
boy o boy
mujhko deewaana na kar
aa mere kareeb aa
aaja ke dil tere liye ae
bekaraar hai mera
mujhko deewaana na kar
