Today’s song is from the film Door Chalen-1946.

Since the time Talkie films arrived in India in the form of Aalam Ara-1931, the enthusiastic film industry, with a pushover from the silent era to the Talkie era, was busy in discovering itself. It was improving in every field as the years passed by. In the first 5-6 years the industry was desperately trying to be free from the clutches of stage music, drama style acting and contents of the films made.

By 1937-38 all these 3 ghosts from the past had been thrown off. Music directors like Anil Biswas, R.C.Boral, Saraswati Devi, Shankar rao Vyas, K C Dey, Pankaj Mullick etc successfully brought a turnaround change in film music from stage -type boring singing to folk tunes and independent experiments with instruments, tuning and the singers. With actors like Motilal, Ashok kumar, Shahu Modak, Kumar etc. the acting became natural and free from drama-type overacting. New directors like Shantaram,Debki Bose, Mehboob etc. tried new themes in films. Prabhat and New Theatres made films on actual events or famous novels and dramas, thus making films vibrant and interesting.

By 1942 or so, many enterprising filmmakers and directors,hitherto tied up with the existing studios, broke free to start their own studios and film production companies. Shantaram, Mehboob,S. Mukherjee, Kardar, Homi Wadia and few more dynamic film makers began a new chapter in the film industry. With talented filmmakers, competing with each other to make better films, they were improving the quality of films in terms of content, music and the presentation substantially.

By 1946 to 1950 old towers shook hard to crumble. The studio system almost disappeared. Film industry could now boast of people highly educated, talented and hard working. Even artistes with International experience and success like Dewan Sharar, Shakuntala Paranjpye, actor Ranjan, Balraj Sahni etc contributed to Indian films. The old horse of Calcutta-New Theatres broke down and actors, directors and Music specialists from Bengal made a Bee-Line to Bombay, thus making it the strongest ever film centre.

1946 was also an year of consolidation, in a sense that due to the iminent Partition of India on the basis of Religion, agreed upon by Gandhi-Nehru combine, made Muslim artistes and film makers plan to pack their bage and move over to the new Utopia across the border. Their vacancies were to be filled up by the waiting second line of actors,directors and MDs. The3 film industry was to have a complete new look within 1-2 years and the beginning was from 1946. Thus the year was very important.

The year 1946 was an year which saw many changes in the film industry. The II world war had just ended. Rationing and control on many items had created Black marketing. This made many people Millionaires. The extra income started getting invested in Film making. The increased cost of Raw Films made filmmaking 7 to 8 times costlier. A film which was made in about 1 Lakh rupees in 1940, needed 8 Lakhs now. Studio system was waning and artiste rates increased in Lakhs instead of thousands.

In 1945, only74 films were made. This number increased to 153 films in 1946. Further, in 1947, the film industry produced a record number of films – 181, but of course that was due to Partition. The quality of films was sacrificed at the cost of the quantity of films made in 1946. However, some quality films were made in 1946, indicating the changing face of filmmaking.

Film Dharati ke Lal-46 was made by IPTA people and it became the first film to be exhibited in Russia. Neecha Nagar-46 won the Grand Prix award in French Film Festival. Film Dr. Kotnis ki amar kahani-46 was dubbed in English as ‘ The journey of Dr. Kotnis’. It was shown in the USA and then in Venice Film Festival. Two musical films- Anmol Ghadi and Shahjahan were made in 1946.

Year 1946 also saw the Debut of several stars and artistes. In fact one can call 1946 as the ” Debut year” of Hindi film industry. See this….

Nirupa Roy debuted in film Amar Raaj-46

Geeta Bali debuted with a dance in film Badnaami-46

Geeta Roy sang her first film song in film Bhakta Prahlad-46

Balraj Sahni debuted in film Insaaf-46. It was a small role,though.

K A Abbas-Director, Pt.Ravi Shankar-MD, Balraj Sahni as Hero and Damayanti Sahni as Heroine made their Debut in film Dharati Ke Lal-46

Meena kapoor sang her first Hindi film song in film Eight Days-46

Sudhir Phadke debuted as MD in film Gokul-46

P L Santoshi as Director, Dev Anand, Rehman, Rehana and Kamla Kotnis debuted as actors in film Hum Ek Hai-46

Chitragupta did his first film as MD in Lady Robin Hood-46

Ram Ganguly became MD with film Maharana Pratap-46

Abhi Bhattacharya debuted in Hindi film Milan-46

Chetan Anand as Director, Uma Anand and Kamini kaushal as actresses debuted in film Neecha Nagar-46

Hansraj Behl debuted as MD with film Pujari-46

Madhubala(as Baby Mumtaz) sang her first song in film Pujari-46

Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote his first Hindi film song in film Shahjahan-46

S D Burman as MD and Kishore Kumar as an actor debuted with film Shikari-46

So, you will find the year 1946 was truly an year of change. The winds of Partition were already blowing and the second line of supplementary artistes was ready to replace the Migrators, after the Partition.

Film Door Chalen-46 was made by Durga Pictures. Director was Phani Mujumdar, MD was K C Dey and all songs were written by Sajjan Purohit(the actor Sajjan). The cast was Naseem Jr., Kamal Kapoor, Balraj Sahni, Damayanti Sahni, Agha, David, K C Dey etc.HFGK sometimes blindly gave the data. The lead actress is written as just Naseem. Since in those days Naseem Bano (mother of Saira Bano) was famous, everybody thought that she was the heroine of this film. Her Filmography includes Door Chalen-46 and Jeewan Swapna-46. The reality is, there was another actress Naseem junior and she had acted in these films.

Naseem Jr. or Miss Naseem Jr. or Naseem Lodhi was the younger sister of actress Shameem. She was born in Lahore on 8-2-1930. Her father had a shop and he was a General merchant. She was educated in Islamia Girls school, Bombay where she was staying with her actress sister Shameem. After Matriculation, she too wanted to become an actress. While in school she did many dramas. At the age of 13, she did an uncredited small role in the film Salma-43.

Her first major film was Jwar Bhata-44- also the first film of Dilip kumar and Mrudula. Her second film was Manorama-44. She acted in few more films Sanyasi-45, Zeenat-45, Door Chalen-46, Amar Raj-46, Jeewan Sapna-46 and Mera Geet-46.

She had a hot temperament and could not get along with co-stars and the Directors. Soon the offers diminished. Not having any income, she stayed with her sister Shamim. However, she fell ill and soon died on 17-11-1946.

She did only a few films, but it was enough to cause confusion. Her films Jeewan Swapna-46 and Door chalen-46 are generally credited to Naseem Sr.’s filmography.

Similarly, only Kamal is written in the Cast in HFGK. One can not make out if this Kamal is a male or female. In reality he was Kamal Kapoor, making his Debut in the film line as a hero. His snake-like eyes and fair skin made him look more like a KGB or Nazi baddie. Prithviraj Kapoor’s cousin, Kamal Kapoor, acted in over 600 films, spanning across three languages. He started off as a hero but with little success. From the Sixties onwards, Kapoor switched to playing a minor villain. His notable work includes Don, Gora aur Kaala, and, of course, Mard, where he played the evil General Dyer.
Born on 22th February 1920 in Lahore, Kamal Kapoor completed his education in Lahore. He started his career in 1944, with Prithvi Raj Kapoor, working in his theatre. Kamal Kapoor’s debut film was the 1946 release, ‘Door Chalein’. This movie, produced under the banner of Durga Pictures was directed by Phani Majumdar and the music composer was K.C.Dey while Kamal Kapoor and Naseem were the leading pair. Kamal Kapoor played Raj Kapoor’s father in ‘Aag’ (1948) which was also Raj Kapoor’s debut film as producer-director. Later he got numerous offers to play similar roles which he flatly refused to do.

Kamal Kapoor’s career as a villain started with the film “Johar Mehmood In Goa” which was released in 1965. This movie proved to be a big hit thus putting an end to the bad times for Kamal Kapoor. Soon he was flooded with work and was offered to play different characters in films like “Johar In Bombay”, “Johar Mehmood In Hongkong”, “Jab Jab Phool Khile”, “Raja Aur Rank”, “Dastak”, “Pakeezah”, “Paapi”, “Chor Machaye Shor”, “Five Rifles”, “Do Jasoos”, “Deewar”, “Khel Khel Me”, “Mard” and “Toofan”.

He once again got a chance to play Raj Kapoor’s father in the 1967 release “Diwana”. In his career spanned over five decades he acted in over 200 films in Hindi, Punjabi and Gujarati languages. He played different kinds of roles from a gangster to the police officer. He played the role of Don’s right-hand man Narang in Don (1978). This blue-eyed actor always had a powerful presence on screen. He worked in 152 films – from Door Chalen-46 to Aakhri Sanghursh-97( last film).

Kamal Kapoor died on 2nd August, 2010.

Today’s song is a duet of Meena Kapoor and K C Dey. It is the 3rd song from this film on this Blog.

Blog Day :

I remember, when I was a growing child, I used to hear the name of film personality called ‘Sajjan’ by elders at home, or likeminded cine-goers who were family friends of my parents.
I used to wonder who exactly this person was in the movies I was watching. It continued for many years and all this while I had no clue about this person.

When I was a grown-up boy (😉) and was studying in 11-12th standard I watched ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ in 1983-85. And here for the first time I get to know who exactly the actor named ‘Sajjan’ was. After that whichever movies new and older I watched I enjoyed his performance on screen. In the background his image of a good character actor (that build up in my mind from the discussions at home) was always there in my mind. So, I was also enjoying his negative roles in many black & white movies of fifties and sixties.

Aftergoing through his filmography, I can recall watching many of these movies where he played various roles particularly with negative shades or sometime being the associate of the of the main villain of the movie, or the different character roles.

But before that he had acted as a hero or second to the hero in the movies of fifties and sixties. There is a long list of the movies he was a part of; however, I am not listing them all here today.

Regulars on this blog would wonder why I am discussing Sajjan today. The reason is- today (15 January 2020) is his birth anniversary.

Sajjan Lal Purohit was born on 15th January 1921 in Jaipur, Rajasthan (then Jaipur State of British India). That way today marks his 100th birth anniversary.

I had not read about him in the details and maybe he must have been discussed on the blog which I might not be aware of, so I have taken some information from Wikipedia and reproducing the same here.

Wikipedia mentions that he graduated from the Jaswant College, Jodhpur and he desired to become a lawyer and not an actor.

Wikipedia also mentions the following regarding his career in the movies;

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films such as Masoom (1941) and Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Mumbai. In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time, the great showman Raj Kapoor was also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and Vakil Sahib and got Rs.35 as salary.
A poet by heart, Sajjan showed his talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena (1944) and lyrics for Door Chalen (1946) and Dhanyavad (1948). Sajjan also acted in small roles in Prithvi Theatre. His acting debut film was Dhanyavad. After that, Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. The heroine was Nalini Jaywant.
By then Sajjan was well established in the films. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films such as; Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, Paridhaan, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diiwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam Jhanjhar and Halla-Gulla. As hero, his last film was Kabuliwala, Do Chor, and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru with Rajesh Khanna. An artist of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram Aur Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

I had watched many episodes of ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ on TV and I liked Sajjan playing Betaal very much.

Sajjan passed away at the age of seventy-nine on 17th May’2000 in Mumbai (then Bombay).

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ which was picturized on him (part-1 of the song). I had noted this song long time back but recently when I was going through the list of pending songs and came across this song, I watched it again and noted that it was Sajjan who was lip-syncing this song so I thought to present it on his anniversary.

This song is shown happening in a ‘village temple’ as a part of ‘sandhya-aarti-bhajan’ where Sajjan and many others are present (villagers and temple associates). A grief-stricken Jeetendra is also seen taking resort in the temple and sitting in ‘dhyaan’ while listening the ‘bhajan’ and I think he remains in this situation for a long time (😊) because by the time the song ends Jeetendra had a ‘beard’ of many days.

Part-2 of the song is played in the back-ground while Jeetendra is shown lying on a hospital bed, but as the song gets played, he regains some strength to leave the hospital without caring the ‘staff’ present there and reach the temple after crossing ‘fields’ etc.

HFGK mentions this song as a one song and not in parts.

I have not watched this movie so I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

So far, two songs from this movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is from the movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ as mentioned above. Lyrics are by Neeraj and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Manna Dey is the singer of this song.

“Jail Yatra”(1947) was produced and directed by Gajanan Jageerdaar for Jaageerdaar productions, Bombay. This “Social” movie had Gajanan Jageerdaar, Kamini Kaushal, Raj Kapoor, Harish, Bikram Kapoor, Badri Prasad, Sunalini Devi, Dixit, Ramlal, Hemavati, Pratima Devi , Sagar, Munawwar Khan, Rammurty, Satyanarayan, Ramlal, Shamlal etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Jail Yatra”(1947) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Ninu Majumdar and Meena Kapoor. Sajjan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ninu Majumdar.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a dance song. Gajanan Jageerdaar , the hero of the movie, most probably lip synced in Ninu Majumdar’s voice. I am less sure about the lady lip syncing in Meena Kapoor’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Today (11 march 2019) finds myself out of my comfort zone, viz outside my base and away from the familiar routine. Today I am in Lucknow and I will be here for three days.

I thought that it is a capital city and so I would be blessed with good internet connection, namely high speed internet and wi fi, but that is not the case. So I am dependent on my dongle and I am thankful that at least this is working, even if slowly. I hope to at least ensure that my days here are not dot days as far as the blog is concerned.

Here is a song from “Dhanyawad”(1948). This remonstrating with the Almighty genre of song is sung by Meena Kapoor. Lyrics are by Sajjan (the character artist). Music is composed by A R Qureshy.

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

With this song, “Dhanyawad”(1948) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho krishn muraari(Dhanywaad)(1948) Singer-Meena Kapoor, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-A R Qureshi

Lyrics

Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho

Main roti hoon tum hans rahe ho
krishn muraari

mitti mein mili jaati yahaan
duniya hamaari

jholi meri khaali hai

jholi meri khaali hai

jab roothh gaye tum hi to phir

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 12
————————————————

Ten years ago, this day in 2009, the film ‘Darling Darling’ made its debut on our blog. This 1977 production from Fortune Films International, has six songs. The song that brought in this film to our blog is the Kishore Kumar favorite – “Aise Na Mujhe Tum Dekho”.

Then, over the past decade, only one more song of this film was added. And now, in the 10 Year Challenge series, we are bringing on the third song of this film. An interesting side thought – maybe in the years to come, this blog and its data, relating to various stats, as well as patterns of how the films went from debut to yippee, will become fodder for PhD research projects at universities that have film studies departments. Research scholars will be analyzing such data to find correlations between the patterns of appearance of the songs of a film, and the perceived quality of its music, and its popularity curve. Interesting food for thought, right?

This 1977 film of Dev Anand, is not his own Navketan production. It was still the 1970s, and despite a descending graph, Dev Anand was still in demand enough to be called upon by other friendly production houses to play the lead role. In 1977, he was in his 54th year, and still going strong as the hero.

The film, from the banner of Fortune Films International, was directed by Gogi Anand. The star cast of this film reveals many a names which can be considered as fixtures in Dev Anand films; check out the names – Dev Anand, Zeenat Aman, Mehmood, Jeevan, Nadira, Dhiraj Kumar, Poonam, Durga Khote, Sajjan, Helen, Ranjan, Raj Verma, Shivraj, Shaifali, V Gopal, Jankidas, Hercules, Jhankna Desai, Geeta Khanna, Juliyan, Baby Guddi, Baby Padmini, Monto, Sheikh, Beerbal, Shahid Bijnauri, and Dhanna.

This song is performed in a mental asylum – a device that is used by directors to inject free format comic relief into the storyline. Dev Anand and Mehmood are leading the song performance. Dev Anand is sporting a full  beard as part of a disguise, and Mehmood appears in a tie and his birthday suit – well, almost 🙂 . As the song progresses, one realizes that they are on a search and rescue mission of some sort, as we see interludes of familiar faces as captives under duress. We get fleeting glimpses of Zeenat Aman, Sajjan and Nadira. We have already had a glimpse of Jeevan, in the very first scene of this song, leaving the premises with a large suitcase in his hand. One can also identify junior actor Sheikh, just behind Dev Anand and Mehmood, as the opening lines of this song are being rendered. I am sure there are more junior artists in this crowd of ‘mad’ persons which can be named, but I am not able to identify more.
[Note: Regulars will recall actor Sheikh – he has performed on screen, the iconic qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“, in the film ‘Al Hilal’ (1958).]

The song is penned by Anand Bakshi and the music composition is by RD Burman. The singing voices are of Kishore Kumar and Mehmood.

This brings on the third song of this film – across a span of ten years. 🙂

“Door Chalein”(1946), an extremely obscure “social” movie was directed by Phani Majumdar for Durga Pictures Bombay. The movie had Naseem (Jr), Kamal Kapoor, Damyanti Sahni, Balraj Sahni, Rajkumari, Agha, David, K C Dey etc in it.

The movie had at least eight songs, perhaps more. Details of eight songs are available in HFGK.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung by K C Dey and Meena Kapoor. Lyricist is not known. Music is composed by K C Dey.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that K C Dey acted in the movie, it seems clear that he lip synced for himself, but it is difficult to say who lip synced in Meena Kapoor’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.

PS-Mr Sadanand Kamath has helped fill in the gaps as far as the missing details are concerned. He informs that Sajjan was the lyricist in this movie.


Song-Anjaane se pehchaane se(Door Chalein)(1946) Singer-K C Dey, Lyrics-Sajjan, MD-K C Dey
K C Dey + Meena Kapoor

Lyrics

Anjaane se pehchaane se
kya naya sandesha laaye ae ae
kaun kahaan se aaye
tum kaun kahaan se aaye

tum phoolon mein muskaate ho
tum kaliyon mein sharmaate ho
phoolon mein muskaate ho
tum kaliyon mein sharmaate ho

shabnam ke aansoo ro ro ker
beete din yaad dilaate ho
shabnam ke aansoo ro ro ker
beete din yaad dilaate ho
mere toote se sapnon ko
kya aaj jodne aaye
aaj jodne aaye
anjaane se pahchaane se

tum aaye ae
tum aaye
veena baaj uthhi
swar lahri phir se naach uthhi
tum aaye
veena baaj uthhi
jeewan ki veena baaj uthhi
geeton ki duniya jaag uthhi
tum aaye

jab aaye ho phir na jaana
apna lo phir na thhukraana
aaye ho phir na jaana
apna lo phir na thhukraana

tum mera jeewan ban jaao
sooni aankhon mein bas jaao
tum mera jeewan ban jaao
sooni aankhon mein bas jaao
main jaan gaya hoon
tum mera sansaar badalne aaye

sansaar badalne aaye
anjaane se
pahchaane se
kya naya sandeshaa laaye ae
kaun kahaan se aaye
tum kaun kahaan se aaye

“Buniyaad”(1972) was produced and directed by Virendra Sharma for Pragati Chitra International movie. The movie had Shatrughan Sinha, Farida Jalal, Yogita Bali, Rakesh Roshan, Bindu, Faryal, Pran, Jankidass, Sajjan etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. Three songs from the movie have been covered in the blog so far. Here are the details of these three songs :-

The fourth and final song from the movie, which is the song under discussion, was a popular song of its time. It is a seduction song.

Regular music lovers are aware that Lata normally did not sing cabarat songs/ seduction songs in HFM and they were mostly sung by Asha Bhonsle. But Lata has sung a few songs of such genre and they are awesome songs. The trick was to convince her to sing such songs. Laxmikant Pyarelal, Ganesh, Chitragupta, Shankar Jaikishan, Rajesh Roshan seem to be the only music directors who had the knack of convincing her to sing cabarat/ seduction songs. Just sample the awesome cabarat/ seduction songs that Lata has sung in Hindi movies. It can be noticed that a vast majority of these songs are sung under the baton of Laxmikant Pyarelal:-

The song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The song is lip synced as a seduction song on Bindu and Rakesh Roshan, with Sajjan also visible in the picturisation.
With this song, the fourth and final song from the movie, “Buniyaad”(1972) now joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye

dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye
kar koyee jatan
o bairi sajan

dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye

hmm hmm hmm hmm hm hmm

nahin vaidh kaa yeh kaam

aankhein karti hain salaam
palkein deti hain payaam
ho ho ho ho ho
tere binaa sooni sooni
haaye meri
armaanon ki mehfil
dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye

kaise raat guzaaroon main aen
baithhee door nihaaroon main aen aen aen
uljhee zulf sanwaaroon main
tadpoon aur pukaaroon main
o ho ho ho
yaa toh tujhe mujhse pyaar nahin piyaa
yaa tu hai buzdil
dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye

sunn le pyaar ki fariyaad
kar de aaj dil aabaa aa aad
ye zid chhod de saiyyad
varnaa dekh rakhnaa yaad
o ho ho ho

teraa jeenaa kar doongi mushqil
dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye
kar koyee jatan
o bairi sajan
de dawaa koyee aisee
ke chain aa jaaye
dard-e-dil badhtaa jaaye
saaree saaree raat neend na aaye

I had carried an impression for a long time that the only film in which Raj Kapoor acted with Kamini Kaushal was ‘Aag’ (1948) which was his debut film as a producer and director. A couple of months back, I got one mp3 clip of a rare song from an obscure film JAIL YATRA (1947) in which Raj Kapoor was teamed up with Kamini Kaushal as a romantic pair though the lead actor was Gajanan Jagirdar who was also the producer and director of the film. Other actors in the film were Badri Prasad, Sunalini Devi, Bikram Kapoor, Dixit, Ramlal, Hemavati, Pratima Devi etc. Acting with Kamini Kaushal in ‘Jail Yatra’ (1947) perhaps gave confidence to Raj Kapoor to cast Kamini Kaushal opposite himself in ‘Aag’ (1948).
