“Sheesh Mahal”(1950) was produced by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Naseem Bano, Nigar Sultana, Pushpa Hans, Amarnath, Jawahar Kaul, Pran, Mubarak, Leela Mishra in it.

The story of the movie, as discussed by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse enyclopaedia, is as following:-

Thakur Jaspal Singh ( Sohrab Modi) lives in the prestigious and palatial house called the Sheesh Mahal. He is badly in debt, yet continues to live a lifestyle far over and above his means. His son and two daughters are concerned, and try to stop him from over-spending, but he disregards them. Then one day the inevitable happens, and Jaspal Singh has to leave Sheesh Mahal, which must now be sold by auction to pay off his debts.

Jaspal and his children move into a small room in the nearby slums, where they hope to spend the rest of their lives. Jaspal’s son, Vikram (Jawahar Kaul) finds employment in a mill, but unfortunately meets with an accident, and in order to save his life, the doctors amputate his leg, leaving his unemployed and dependent. Jaspal’s daughter, Ranjana ( Naseem Bano), attempts to secure employment, but proud Jaspal will not hear of this.

Ranjana gets employment, but she does not tell her father about it. Ranjana meets with a young man, Vikram (Amarnath) and both fall in love with each other. When this young man’s father, Durgaprasad ( Mubarak), comes to ask Jaspal for Ranjana’s hand, Jaspal finds out that he is the new owner of Sheesh Mahal, and that Ranjana has been working as a maid there.

Jaspal is furious, and taking his sword, he rushes over to the Sheesh Mahal with a clear intent of killing Ranjana, and anyone else who dares to stop him.

There he encounters Durgaprasad, who opens his eyes by telling him on his face the reality and that he is living in his past, which does not exist anymore. He warns him not to destroy the future and happiness of his children to pamper his false ego. Thakur realises his mistake. he drops his sword, but he too falls suffering from massive heart attack. He breathes his last accepting all his faults, but it is too late.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these songs :

Here is the ninth and final song from “Sheesh Mahal”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Pushpa Hans and it is picturised on her as well.

Lyricist is credited as Aaziz. I wonder whether he is a new name or someone who is known to us by some other name. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on him.

Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

With this song, “Sheesh Mahal”(1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Taqdeer banaane waale ne kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai (Sheesh Mahal)(1950) Singer-Pushpa Hans, Lyrics-Aziz, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai
barbaadi likh di kismat mein
ye apni shaan dikhaayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi takdeer banaayi hai

aashaaon ki maala toot gayi
ummeed ke moti bikhar gaye
ummeed ke moti bikhar gaye
armaan bhi jal kar khaaq huye
armaan bhi jal kar khaaq huye
ab jaan pe aafat aayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai

ik jhonka hawa ka aaya thha
aaya aur aa kar nikal gaya
aaya aur aa kar nikal gaya
ham thhandi saans bhi le na sake
ham thhandi saans bhi le na sake
har shaakh e chaman murjhaai hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne
kaisi taqdeer banaayi hai
taqdeer banaane waale ne

Today (11 february 2018) is the birth anniversary of Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931). People may argue that he has nothing to do with HFM, but I would argue back that there would be no HFM but for Edison. One out of Edison’s countless inventions was the invention of phonograph, which made it possible to record sound. All the HFM music that we are listening to now owe their existence to this paradigm shifting invention in human existence. We have no way of knowing how the great personalities of the past sounded like, but thanks to Edison, we got a device that could record the voices of people for posterity. That way the contemporaries of Edison and those who came later has their lives enriched to a degree that is beyond our imagination.

Of course, motion picture camera and light bulb are also his inventions. One can safely say that the modern life that we take for granted these days owes a lot to the inventions of Edison. All these inventions led to creation of major industries !

Lots and lots of other discoveries and inventions by lots and lots of other people have taken place since then. In the past, there was no way to preserve voice for postrity. Now it can not only be preserved, but now it can be shared with others easily with people that may be living on the other side of the globe, without leaving the comforts of our own homes ! What is more, these recordings can even be edited, enhanced etc. For instance, there are quite a few recordings that are of poor quality. But tchnology is now available that enables us to improve their quality quite dramatically.

It goes without saying that our blog makes use of lots of technologies that Thomas Edison and many others have created over that last 150 years or so.

Take the song under discussion for example. This song is from “Sheesh Mahal”(1950). Sheesh Mahal had nine nine songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the blog. Out of the remaining two songs, one song is available in good audio quality (even video is available). But there is one song which seems to be missing from the movie and its audio, as available leave much to be desired.

But as noted above, technology comes to the rescue. There are audio softwares available that can help reduce noise and enhance audio quality. I am not much experienced in such matters but still I have been able to reduce the noise in this audio to an extent where the audio quality is bearable. May be with experience, I will become better.

So, on the occasion of Thomas Alva Edison’s 171st birth anniversary, here is this rare song from “Sheesha Mahal”(1950). This song is sung by Pushpa Hans. She had acted in it as well, so assuming that this song was picturised, it was picturised on herself.

Shams Lucknowi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

This song becomes the 500th song of 1950 to appear in the blog. That way, 1950 becomes the second year, after 1949, to have 500 songs in the blog. 1959 and 1960 are two years that are waiting in the wings to join this group.


Song-Bhoole zamaane yaad na kar (Sheesh Mahal)(1950) Singer-Pushpa Hans, Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

duniya ki yahi baaten hain
duniya ki yahi baaten hain
din hain to phir kabhi raaten hain
din hain to phir kabhi raaten hain
dil ko tu naashaad na kar
naashaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

zaalimon ki ye basti hai
zaalimon ki ye basti hai
rone pe duniya hansti hai
rone pe duniya hansti hai
aansuon se fariyaad na kar
fariyaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar

ae dost hamen gham sahne de
ae dost hamen gham sahne de
kisi(?) ki nishaani rahne de
kisi(?) ki nishaani rahne de
shaad na kar
barbaad na kar
barbaad na kar
yaad na kar
bhoole zamaane yaad na kar
yaad na kar
