Today’s song is from a resoundingly flop film of its time, Rambaan-48. The film was made by Prakash Pictures of Bhatt Brothers, known for quality films of different Genres. During the early 40s, their Mythological films like Bharat Milap-42 and Ramrajya-43 were extraordinarily successful. Film Rambaan was also directed by Vijay Bhatt-as usual- and the Music Director was Shankar rao Vyas, their favourite. The film story and dialogues were by Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish. Lyricists were Pt. Indra, Neelkanth Tiwari and Moti,B.A.( who was actually M.A.). The cast of the film was Prem Adib, Shobhana Samarth, Umakant, Ramsingh, Chandramohan, Amirbai, Leela Mishra and many others.

The lead pair of Prem Adib and Shobhana Samarth had become extremely popular all over the country as Ram and Seeta, after their two films Bharat Milap and Ram Rajya. These two actors came together for the first time in film Industrial India-1938. After this they worked in 11 more films plus one more film Ramayan-54, which was concocted by joining parts of 3 films made by Prakash Pictures on Ram and Seeta. After this film-Rambaan- Prakash films focused on social and musical films and made memorable films like Baiju Bawra-52 and Gunj Uthi Shehnai-59.

The stories of Rama and offshoots of Ramayana have always inspired film makers. Mahabharat too did the same. In Hindi language alone, films on Rama stories are around 25 ( not counting obvious other films like Ram aur Shyam, Ram Lakhan or Ram Balram etc.). Practically, in every Indian language and dialects, Nepalese and Sinhalese, Ram films are made. However, the kind of fame, popularity and the Box office returns, that the Film Ram Rajya-43 earned is beyond imagination. Calendars from 1944 to 1950 featured Shobhana and Prem as Ram and Seeta. Wherever these stars went they were mobbed and people used to touch their feet, treating them as Ram and Seeta.

Enthused with this fabulous response, Prakash were planning a third film on Ram and Seeta as a last film in the Trilogy of Ramayan Stories. They waited for a good five years and made Rambaan-48.

Ramayan and Mahabharata are the two major Religious Epics for Indians. Ramayana has been popular and widesread all over the Eastern World. There are in all 301 versions of Ramayana. These include the original Valmiki Ramayan and few other major Indian language Versions like Kamban’s Ramavataram in Tamil and Rangnathan’s Ramayana in Telugu. Then there is Ramayan Manjiri in NE and Bengal version. There is a Jain version too.Besides Ramayana in every Indian language and many dialects with scripts, there are Ramayana Versions in Burma, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Phillipines, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Thialand, Malaysia, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam and China. All these versions total upto 300 in number. Then what is the 301st version ?

301st is the version of the fertile imagination of the authors of the ” Story Departments” of Indian film companies. Even Prakash Pictures had its own department. The first two films Bharat Milap and Ram Rajya were mostly based on the original Valmiki Ramayan. For film Rambaan-48, however, the Bhatt brothers gave free hand to the story and dialogue writers, in order to include something new, for which the same audience will come to the theatres. This is where things went wrong. The novel changes and additions that Mohanlal Dave and Pt. Girish brought into the Ramayana story were ridiculous, which were rejected out right and were resented by the Indian viewers. The Cinematic liberty taken for a film is one thing and twisting and distorting an accepted historical story by the millions over centuries of generations is another thing.

I am sure, if only Valmiki was to watch this film, he would have jumped from Everest or taken a Samadhi immediately ! Let us see what happened in the film, after all.

First and foremost, Shobhana Samarth was 8 month’s pregnant during the shooting of this film ( with her third daughter Chatura ) and it showed everytime she came on the screen. Could they not wait for another 6 months ? As such she was nearing her middle age-at 33 years- and it was obvious to everyone. Secondly, Prem Adib-two years younger than Shobhana, as it is- had put on lot of fat and seeing his open body with loose muscles, almost double chin and a face without freshness was a punishment for the senses.

The blue eyed handsome Chandramohan did the role of Ravan in this film. His characterisation of the role was made very ridiculous. Every now and then and in every scene, his ‘Taqia kalam” was rolling eyes like a drunken person and shouting ” Main Kaun “. Then giving the reply himself ” Main Ravan “. Actually, according to Valmiki and everyone else, Ravan was a very learned Brahmin, a peerless scientist, Veena player, a scholar on Vedas and a staunch devotee of lord Shiv. To make him look like a clown was very sad and disappointing indeed.

Shoorpnakha was actually married early, but her husband was killed by Ravan, in a battle. Ravan had made her a queen of Dandkaranya. In the film, her Swayamwar is shown. She rejects everyone and remains unmarried. This was undigestible to moviegoers who were familiar with the story of Ramayan.

Shabari katha is similarly distorted. In Valmiki Ramayana, after meeting Ram,Seeta and laxmana and giving them half eaten fruit, Shabri self immolates and goes to Heaven. In the film she first meets the three and after Seeta is abducted meets Ram again to inform him that she saw Ravan carrying Seeta in his plane. She also introduces Ram to all the Vanar leaders-Sugreev, Hanuman, Jambuwant etc.

There were many such New Discoveries, thanks to the writers, in this film. I remember in 1950, when this film came to Hyderabad, I had accompanied some old relatives and my Grandfather to this film. After coming back all were very angry. I don’t remember what exactly they had said, but I wrote in my diary ” the film was boring”.

Baburao Patel of Film India was not one to miss such an opportunity to pull up the director and producer. In the February 1949 issue, he had devoted three pages to the film, mostly tearing it apart, accusing the producers of tarnishing the Hindu religion. He only appreciated actor Umakant, who traditionally did the role of Laxman ( He did this role in 7 films in all) as a good and suitable actor. he even suggested him to be promoted as Ram, in their next film.

There is a name Ramsingh, in the film’s cast. The actor Ramsingh’s name is not very famous or well known, but in his times, he did Hero’s and Villain’s role in many films. Information about him was not available anywhere on the Internet till today. For the first time his information is appearing here today.His entry in films and life story is very interesting.

During the 1942 ‘Quit India’ movement, there was a riot in Allahabad. Police opened fire and along with several other people, Secretary of All University Students Union also was killed. Fearing a backlash from college students, the Government closed down all colleges and vacated Hostels. Two persons became homeless. One was Ramchandra Dwivedi- who later on became well known as Kavi Pradeep- and the other was Ramsingh- who became an actor.

After the riots, instead of informing his family about his welfare, Ramsingh left for Bombay and then to Poona, to become an actor. He was tall,fair and handsome. V.Shantaram hired him as an assistant in the studio. His family thought that he must have been killed in the riots and grieved, when he never returned.

One day one of the villagers came to their house and told excitedly, that he had seen a Hindi film and in that film, an actor looked exactly like Ramsingh. The family went to the town and saw the film. Lo and behold ! there he was. Looking just like Ramsingh. Anxiously a group of elders reached Prabhat Studio in Poona and inquired. The officials brought out their own son- Ramsingh before them !! Everyone was happy. It seems he did not contact his household just to avoid the Police investigations, as he too was an active participant in the agitation.

Ramsingh was born into a rich Zamindar family of village Ishanpur in Pratapgarh (U.P.), in 1920. After graduating, while doing his M.A. he joined films. His first film was Ramshastri-44, then came Chand-44, Lakhrani-45 and Hum ek hain-46….all Prabhat films. While in Prabhat, he became friendly with Dev Anand and Guru Dutt. In his later years, they gave him roles in their almost every film..

In his other films, Ramsingh worked with Heroine Ranjit Kumari ( real name Ranjit Kaur), to whom he got married later on. He was already married while in school and also had 3 children from his first wife. From the second marriage he got 4 children.

Ramsingh played Hero, Villain and character roles in 69 films. Some of his notable films were, besides 4 Prabhat films, Gaon-47, Shaheed-48, Khidki-49, Aparadhi-50 ( He was the Hero, opposite Madhubala), Sargam-50, Sangram-50, Shrimati ji-52, Jaal-52, Baaz-53 etc etc. In his later career, he only got insignificant roles in B and C grade films and Mythologicals. His last film was Sati Sulochana-69. ( 2 more films Veer Chhatrasaal-71 and Mere Bhaiya-72 were released after he left films).

Ramsingh returned to his native place with Ranjit Kumari and children in 1970 and started doing Agriculture. The U.P. Chief Minister H.N.Bahuguna was his classmate and a very good friend. Ramsingh approached him. Bahuguna, to help him, immediately established ” U.P. Film Corporation ” and made Ramsingh its Chairman. However, due to political turmoil in the country, Bahuguna left congress and joined Congress For Democracy, against Indira Gandhi. As a result the film corporation was wound up and Ramsingh returned to the fields again.

Ramsingh started drinking, against medical advise and died in 1984, in his village.

Shankar Rao Vyas gave a very sweet and melodious music. Today’s song, particularly, is the best of the 3 songs which I have heard. This song is sung by Shankar Dasgupta.

Born in 1927 in Bengal, Shankar Dasgupta started singing from childhood. He was a trained singer. In 1946,he got a break with Anil Biswas in his film Milan-46. His first song itself became very popular.

Then he sang in films like Anjana, Didi, Girl’s school, Jeet, Aahuti,Izzat, Do Raha etc. He sang about 63 songs in 39 films. he gave music to 4 films, Sadma, Sheeshe ki deewar, Hotel and Pehli mulaaqaat.

He assisted Anil Biswas and Jaidev for many years. He did work on TV and in News reviews too. He settled in England after retirement,but was active on TV there too.

On one of his routine visits to India in 1992, he met with a tragic accident on a Railway station in Bombay, on 23-1-1992 and died on the spot.

With this song, the film Rambaan (1948) makes its Debut on the Blog.

Lyrics

Uthh Lakhan lal priya bhai
Uthh Lakhan lal priya bhai

ankhiyaan bhar bhar aayin
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Maat Pita Patni ki maaya

chhod Ayodhya ka sukh tumne
jogi roop banaaya
jis bhai ke liye yudhh mein
praan ki baazi lagaayi
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

pahle mujhe khila phir khaate
aur sulaa kar sote
?? tumhaare kaun kabhi to
baad raam ke hote

Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Maat Kaushalya aur Sumitra

aankh moond ke huye tumhi kya
tanik daya na aayi
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Seeta Raavan ke ghar bandi
Meghnath chadh aayo
jagat kahega naari ke kaaran
Raam ne bandhu ganwaayo
dheeraj chhooto jaat sabhi ka
kab se ter lagaayi
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai
Uth Lakhan lal priya bhai

Ek kissa hai, Radha ka. There is a tale, of a girl named Radha. She was in her teens, ‘kamsin’ as they say in parlance – young and innocent in years; sporting dark tresses that reached her knees; her supremely fair and flawless skin as if made from milk; her eyes – bright, with a depth enough for a smitten heart to drown itself. She would come to the terrace to hang out the laundry for drying. Iqbal, smitten as he was with the beauty of this young lady, would wait everyday to fill his heart with her moving images. The fascination, the infatuation remained as it is, unexpressed – for he could never muster up enough courage to say or do anything to express his feelings. Fears and apprehensions of many kinds held him back. Radha, remained a puppy love dream – forever. But is sure did make a poet out of that obsessed heart that could not express itself to its beloved.

He penned the following lines, as his initiation into the world of verse writing,

खेंचते हैं अपनी जानिब यार ये गेसू मुझे
आ रही है हर तरफ से प्यार की खुशबू मुझे
एक राधा से हुई है जब से मेरी दोस्ती
सारी दुनिया कह रही है आजकल हिन्दू मुझे

These tresses of my beloved, beckon me
The fragrance of love is diffused all around me
Since my heart has made a friend named radha
All the world is calling me a hindu these days

By his own admission, he would never have taken to pen and paper, if by some God sent blessing, this infatuation would have ripened into a reciprocated affair, and if the two would have been betrothed. The world of letters, and the world of cinema would have been robbed of one of the best romantic poets of the Golden Era of the Hindi film music.

Iqbal Hussain, born on 15th April, 1927 in Jaipur, grew up to be known by his pen name more than anything else – Hasrat. And the city of his origin came in to complete his identity recognition – Jaipuri.

He passed away this day (17th September) in 1999 after a scintillating career of almost five decades as a songwriter. The unsuccessful saga of his first love was in any case immortalized. The famous aria venerating the identity of the romantic messaging device called the ‘प्रेम पत्र’ (love letter), was originally written for his Radha, of the terrace visits. The song it became is – “Ye Mera Prem Patra Padh Kar” (film ‘Sangam, 1964).

It is a temptation to revisit all the great poetry he has written, that has become popular and enduring. But then even this one night, sleepless per force, would be inadequate to do justice. But in any case, that sampling may just be a reprise for all the dear melodies that I am sure all readers and lovers of this music, have stored away in their memories.

And so I just introduce this one song today. This wonderful melody, for the longest of the time, I was under the impression that this one is already posted here. But today I discovered that it is still in waiting. The film is ‘Badnaam’ from 1952. The music director is Basant Prakash (brother of Khemchand Prakash). The baritone rich singing voice is that of Shankar Dasgupta. The verses, of course, are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri.

The first sub line of this poem imitates the well known starting words of the famous she’er – “Ye Ishq Nahin Asaan, Bas Itna Samajh Lijey. . .” from a ghazal by the maestro Jigar Moradabadi. But after that it goes on to take a powerful identity of its own with lines like “. . .zakhmon mein chhupa lena, tasveer e mohabbat ko. . .” and “. . .khud lut ke sikha dena, duniya ko wafa karna. . .”.

An immense ghazal – words, composition, rendition – all are superlative. With memories of Hasrat Sb, enjoy this wonderful creation.

[Author’s Note: The episode of the poet’s first love is adapted from the definitive article on Hasrat Jaipuri, from the book ‘Hindi Filmon Ke Geetkar’ by Anil Bhargav.]

Song – Ye Ishq Nahin Aasaan, Kaanton Pe Jiya Karna (Badnaam) (1952) Singer – Shankar Dasgupta, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Basant Prakash

Lyrics

ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna
ashqon ka zehar hardam
khush ho ke piya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

kehte hain jise ulfat
ye khel hai sholon ka
kehte hain jise ulfat
ye khel hai sholon ka
chupchaap hi jal jaana
hargiz na gila karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

zakhmon mein chhupa lena
tasveer e mohabbat ko
tasveer e mohabbat ko
zakhmon mein chhupa lena
tasveer e mohabbat ko
tasveer e mohabbat ko
khud lut ke sikha dena
duniya ko wafa karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

aise to kai toofaan
raahon mein sataayenge
aise to kai toofaan
raahon mein sataayenge
ghabra ken a darr jaana
manzil pe badha karna
kaanton pe jiya karna
ye ishq nahin aasaan
kaanton pe jiya karna
kaanton pe jiya karna

ज़ख़्मों में छुपा लेना
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
तस्वीर ए मोहब्बत को
खुद लुट के सीखा देना
दुनिया को वफा करना
काँटों पे जिया करना

ऐसे तो कई तूफान
राहों में सताएंगे
ऐसे तो कई तूफान
राहों में सताएंगे
घबरा के न डर जाना
मंज़िल पे बढ़ा करना
काँटों पे जिया करना
ये इश्क़ नहीं आसान

“Sadma”(1954) was produced by R G Khanna for Asiatic Productions, Bombay. That is all that HFGK mentions about this movie. We have no clue who were the actors in this movie. We are not even sure how many songs this movie had though HFGK lists mukhdas of seven songs from this movie.

One song from “Sadma”(1954) has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from this movie. This song is sung by Kusum Ranade and Raghavan. Lyrics are by T Ram-Dewan. Music is composed by Shankar Dasgupta.

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

I have not been able to get the lyrics of the song right at several places. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Yesterday (23rd Jan) was the passing away anniversary of Shankar Dasgupta. A talented singer of repute in the industry, he may not have been in the same league as the top rung singers. But in the next supporting row, his capabilities and effectiveness has been judged a notch better than contemporaries like GM Durrani, SD Batish and Khan Mastana.

Born in 1927, sadly not too many details are available about his early growing years. He had a deep seated interest in music right from childhood, a trait that his mother recognized and encouraged him to follow his interests. From the age of eight years itself, the young Shankar started formal training and practice of classical music.

As with most singers of his era, his idol also was KL Saigal. In some of his songs, one can feel that he attempting to emulate Saigal Sb. Especially listening to the song “Dil Ki Lagi Ko Koi Na Jaane” from the 1954 film ‘Sheeshe Ki Deewar’, one gets feeling of the presence of Saigal Sb’s voice.

Music director Anil Biswas give him his first break in the film ‘Milan’ in 1946. Over the next approximately two decades, he has sung about 50 songs in thirty one movies. His last song is from the 1968 film ‘Kahin Din Kahin Raat’. His end came unexpectedly, as a result of an unfortunate and freak train accident at the Matunga Road station in Bombay.

Today’s song is from the 1952 film ‘Izzat’. The words are written by Buta Ram Sharma, and the music is composed by Bulo C Rani. The song tells about the realities of life, about how short and ephemeral this human life is. The voice of Shankar Dasgupta sounds so very suitable and effective in rendering this philosophical thought.

musafir basera hai
do roz ka
ye jag bande tera hai do roz ka
musafir basera hai
do roz ka

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————
ये जग बंदे तेरा है दो रोज़ का
ये जग बंदे तेरा है दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का
ये जग बंदे तेरा है दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का

तेरे बाग की है अजब दास्तान
तेरे बाग की है अजब दास्तान
कहीं शोखियाँ हैं कहीं मस्तियाँ
मगर ये बहारें हमेशा कहाँ
जो समझे तो सुन कह रही है ख़िज़ाँ
ये फूलों का डेरा हैं दो रोज़ का
ये फूलों का डेरा हैं दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का
ये जग बंदे तेरा है दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का

तड़प के दिलों की दुआएं लिए जा
तड़प के दिलों की दुआएं लिए जा
कोई कुछ करे तू भलाई किए जा
तू नेकी के भर भर के साग़र पिये जा
सुबह ओ शाम तक की सदाएं लिए जा
ये शाम ओ सवेरा है दो रोज़ का
ये शाम ओ सवेरा है दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का
ये जग बंदे तेरा है दो रोज़ का
मुसाफिर बसेरा है
दो रोज़ का
