Blog Day : 3537 Post No. : 14207

An interesting observation regarding the Yippeee process for the film that is getting Yippeee’d today. Regular readers would have noticed a pattern in the manner that the films are getting Yippeee’d these days. Generally, in the case of films with just two or three songs remaining to be posted, the last two (or last three) songs kind of appear at a very rapid pace, almost on a daily basis, one right on top of the other. With such films, the penultimate one (or two) songs appear in quick succession followed by the final song of the film, on the next day.

Not in the case of the film being Yippeee’d today. On examining the list of songs of this film as they appear in the table below, the penultimate song of this film came on board on 12th Jan, 2018. And its Yippeee song today appears after a gap of almost two and a half months. And the reason for this delay – it is yours truly, of course. 🙂

When the penultimate song got posted on 12th Jan earlier this year, I immediately sent a note to Atul ji, requesting for doing the Yippeee honors for this film. The reason is that I wanted to bring on board the video of the song. Apparently the earlier posted songs of the film ‘Bus Conductor’, from 1959, were in video form, as one can make out from the write-ups of the first three songs of this film posted. These first three songs came on board on 2009, 2014 and 2016, and they were earlier available in video form. Now, these songs are no longer available, and the YT account of the erstwhile uploader has been blocked due to “multiple copyright infringements”. So the video clips of these songs are no longer available online. (Once again, the caveat – as far as I can search it online 🙂 ).

I have been able to acquire the video of this film through one of my good friends. I do not wish to say that we are the only ones having a this video film. Quite possibly, the video version is also in the hands of other friends, known or unknown. So anyway, I wanted to upload the video of this song for this post today. But as I was checking the previous posts for this film, I realized what had happened, Then I decided not to post the video clip of the song on YT. And the link that I am using in this post for now, is the audio upload of this song by Sa Re Ga Ma.
[Ed Note: The video clip of the song is now added on Vimeo, as suggested by Atul ji. The link is added below.]

And so, with this song, today we add the 1959 film ‘Bus Conductor’ to the list of films having all their songs showcased on our blog.

The film is a production from the banner of Sharda Films, Bombay, produced by Ashok Bhambri. It is a social drama, directed by Dwarka Khosla. The cast of actors, as listed in the Geet Kosh, reads like – Shyama, Premnath, Amarnath, Maruti, Satish Batra, Sujata, Umesh Sharma, Ramlal, Khairati, Narbada Shankar, Ameer Bano, Sadhna, Surya Kumari, Helen, Kanchanmala, Sheela Vaz and Cuckoo. An interesting aside here. Maruti, whose name appears in the list actors, plays the role of a dance teacher in the film. He is the friend of the hero, played by Premnath. As I was watching the credits of the film, I discovered that the story of this film is written by Maruti himself.

The film has six songs. All the songs are written by Noor Devasi. And the music has been composed by the duo of Bipin-Babul. The five songs of this film posted earlier, are listed below.

Dil Se Main Mujh Se Dil Takra Gaya Bus Conductor 1491 23-Jun-09
Zindagi Mein Rang Bhara Hai Pyaar Ka Bus Conductor 10550 29-Nov-14
Man Mein Tere Kyaa Hai Bataa De Gori Bus Conductor 12625 27-Nov-16
Daanv Chalne Ko Hai Bus Conductor 13613 26-Sep-17
Paas Hamaare Aaiye Bus Conductor 13909 12-Jan-18

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle, and in the film it is presented as a dream sequence. Shyama is sleeping, and she sees a dream in which she is singing this song, as she plays the sitar, and that she is also dancing to this song. The sequence is filmed as alternating shots that show Shyama playing the sitar and singing, and also dancing simultaneously. Surely possible in a dream sequence only.

As I was checking out the earlier posts, I came across the query from Atul ji himself, as to what is the ‘Bus Conductor’ connection in the film. So I checked out the video. The role of the bus conductor in the film is played by Premnath, who is otherwise a rich person, belonging to an affluent family. The reason that he goes underground and becomes a bus conductor, is explained in the beginning of the film.

Premnath belongs to a very rich family of landlords. He is an aspiring writer, albeit an unsuccessful one. He writes short stories, and sends them for publication to different magazines. His stories are always getting rejected. And so he makes a decision that he will leave his home and its luxuries, and live like a common person, search for a job, and work to earn a living – all this for a learning experience of life, so that he is able to genuinely write about life and people, and make his stories more convincing.

There is an emotionally charged scene in the beginning of the film, in which we see him receive some more rejections in mail, and we see an outburst in which he tells his bhabhi (wife of elder brother) that he is leaving home, and will return only when he has achieved success as a writer. He declares that he forgoes all the comforts and luxuries of his rich-person life, will go out into the world to fend for himself, get a firsthand experience of a common man’s life, and write about it. With this loud and emotionally charged declaration, he departs from his home to start a new life incognito. I must add that the performance by Premnath in this scene, did not sound very convincing to me.

So he leaves his luxuries and finds a job as a bus conductor. The rest of the film is about his interactions with people. He makes friends with Maruti, who lives in a chawl and dreams about being a choreographer in films. He meets Shyama who is also from a rich family, but is forced to ride a bus one day when her car breaks down. She forgets her bag on the bus, giving an opportunity to the make-believe bus conductor to play the honest good Samaritan and take the bag to her home. Which of course leads to more things, as expected.

He also witnesses a murder, as one passenger alighting from his bus is pushed under the wheels of the bus itself – he tries to chase the culprit but is unable to apprehend him. The person behind the murder is connected with Shyama’s family, and story gets into the expected filmy complexities.

Of course, all is well in the end, as the rich girl gets a rich husband to be, the murder is solved and the culprit apprehended – rather killed as he runs on to a railway track as he is being chased by the hero and the police. If the writer wrote a new story and it got published; I must have missed that sequence in the quick review that I did of this film. And the rich-boy-masqerading-as-a-poor-boy returns home to his luxuries with his lady love.

On the whole, it is quite an un-convincing plot, with equally un-convincing performances. And as is always the case, it is the songs that draw us.

But nonetheless, one more film to be Yippeee’d on our blog.

“Inquilaab”(1956) was produced by Kailash Kapoor and J P Sahgal and directed by Kedar Kapoor for W S Films, Bombay. This movie had Ranjan, Shyama, Kuldeep Kaur, Tiwari, Ramesh Sinha, S K Prem, Indu Paul, Praveen, Khairati, Pt Iqbal, Pal Sharma, Khursheed, Bihari, Bakshi, Sando, Bachcha, Sundar etc in it with guest appearances by Helen, Sapru, Bhagwan and Johny Walker.

“Inquilaab”(1956) had eight songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Inquilaab”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Though the song is sung by one singer, it is lip synced by two ladies. I can identify Shyama but I am unable to identify the other lady. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.


Song-Dilbar se pyaar chhupane mein bada maza hai (Inquilaab)(1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

dilbar se pyaar chupaane mein bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chupaane mein bada maza hai
kuchh din ye takraar chalegi
shama aur parwaane mein
bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chhupaane mein bada maza hai

ummeedon ka gulshan mahke
dil mein shokh tamanna chahke
ae meri manzil saamne aaja
aaj kadam mere bahke bahke
husn ki duniya jhoom rahi hai
laga hai teer nishaane mein
bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chhupane mein bada maza hai

wo paas aayen main ghabraaun
sahmoon simtoon aur sharmaaun
kisko diya hai pyaar bhara dil
poochhe bhi to main na bataaun
hoti hai taskeen mohabbat
ban ban ke sharmaane mein
bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chupaane mein bada maza hai

dil mera jhoome shaam suhaane
bal khaaye lahraaye jawaani
aaja o tadpaane waale
meri umangen hain deewaani
chhalak rahe hain jaam nazar ke
aankhon ke maykhaane mein
bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chhupane mein bada maza hai
kuchh din ye takraar chalegi
shama aur parwaane mein
bada maza hai
dilbar se pyaar chhupane mein bada maza hai

ना जाने क्यों॰ ॰ ॰ होता है ये ज़िंदगी के साथ
अचानक ये मन
किसी के जाने के बाद
करे फिर उसकी याद॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, Shyama. . . the vivacious, bubbly, chirpy, charming Shyama. That is the image that the mind always carries, of this spirited young lady, so full of life on the screen. Some memories and some reflections are so firmly engraved in the mind that it simply does not register or acknowledge the passage of time and the passing of eras. That is the beauty of these memories – that their beauty simply never fades away.

My very first encounter with her was the song “Mujhe Mil Gaya Bahaana Teri Deed Ka” (film ‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, 1960). I saw this song on Delhi TV, most probably in some edition of the Chitrahaar program. Shama (Shyama) is on screen with Shabaab (Ratna), her younger sister in the film. There is an exchange that leads to certain wrong impressions. Being secretly in love with Amaan (Bharat Bhushan), Shama interprets that conversation to be in her favour. And this happy song of an assumed fulfilment of love is the outcome. The expressions and the rendering of this love song trickled right into the mind and heart of a very young heart, and the lady on the screen became a favorite crush of mine.

A few years later, I would get a chance to see this complete film. And my heart was both joyous and asunder. I got to see more of her scintillating performance, especially the qawwaali “Ji Chaahta Hai Choom Loon Apni Nazar Ko Main”, in which she is brimming with excitement and delight. She makes you feel the thrill that she is experiencing, going in for the kill of the opposite party in the qawwaali competition. Her performance simply takes you along that joyous path of the victory of her singing group over that of Chand Khan’s (Khurshid Bawra’s) group. But then, I was also sad that in the final outcome, she is not the choice of the person she adores and worships. The film ends with her being the loser in the game of love. My heart wept for her, for her love was true and silent, and it made the sacrifice in face of knowing that her beau’s heart is smitten elsewhere. This film remains an all time favorite in my heart.

Then came other films, viewed some years later during college days. Films from the previous three decades were mostly showing as reruns in morning shows (9am to 12 am). We used to skip the morning classes in the college to go visit these unknown unseen films, for the love of that golden era. In that time, I would get to see ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Chhoo Mantar’ (1956), ‘Makkheechoos’ (1956), ‘Bhai Bhai’ (1956), ‘Sharda’ (1957), ‘Bhaabhi’ (1957), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958), ‘Zabak’ (1961) and many more. The ‘puppy’ crush was long over and done with, but Shyama was a favorite actress – always would be ready to go see an unseen film, especially if Shyama was part of the cast of actors.

She was born as Khursheed Akhtar, in Lahore. Her date of birth is stated differently in different online sources. The anniversaries table on our blog gives the date as 12th June of 1935. Cineplot gives the date as 7th June, 1935. In his book ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitaare’, Shri Sriram Tamrakar quotes her birth date as 12th July 1933. There are other sources which are at variance with these dates too.

When she was two years old, her family moved to Bombay. Her father was a fruit merchant and had set up a shop in Byculla. With seven siblings, Shyama was part of a large family. School and studies never did interest her. Right from childhood, being a star on the silver screen was her dream. As a child, she had seen a film starring Ishwarlal and Khursheed (the famous singer-actress). She was very impressed by Khursheed’s singing and her acting. On seeing this role, a resolve started to form in her to become an actor. [Ed Note: This picture possibly could be ‘Shaadi’ (1941) or ‘Chandni’ (1942).]

As a young girl, she was quite mischievous and full of pranks. Her elder sisters would admonish her for being such a tomboy. In her own words (from an interview on Cineplot) she says that she always wanted a hungama, indulge in a little romance. But she was very disciplined and cultured too. She never smoked, or drank all her life. And she never appeared in a swimsuit throughout her career. She was very true to her Muslim upbringing and family traditions.

In 1944/45 she and her sisters and friends, one day went to see the shooting of a film at a studio in Dadar (Bombay). The shooting of the film ‘Zeenat’ (1945) was in progress. The specific sequence being filmed was the now iconic all female qawwaali “Aahen Na Bharin, Shiqwe Na Kiye”. As luck would have it, Shaukat Hussain Rizvi, the director of the film, wanted to have more girls to join the singing group. He asked this group of onlooker young ladies whether they would like to join the filming of this song. Without hesitation, Khursheed raised her hand. Rizvi Sb picked her to join the group and play the dholak. In the video of this song, one can see her sitting in the second row behind the main singers, wearing a traditional cap, with a dholak in her lap. The young lady got a billing in the star credits as Baby Khursheed. She was just about 10 years old.

Her father was very upset that his daughter had made this impromptu decision, and was set against her joining films. However, her mother and her sisters prevailed upon him and calmed him to get his consent to permit her to work in films. So out went the school and studies, and the little Khurshid started her career doing child roles and extras. By her own estimates, she probably has appeared 80 films in which she was just an extra or a chorus girl.

‘Nai Maa’ is a 1946 film, which Shyama herself indicates as being her first formal role as a child star. The film is from the banner of Prakash Pictures – the production house of the Bhatt brothers – Vijay and Shankar Bhai. With the consideration that there already were two actresses named Khursheed in the industry, Vijay Bhatt suggested for her to change her name to avoid same-name-confusions. He thought of the name ‘Shyama’. The young Khursheed happily took it on, and this name turned to be her career and her destiny.

Getting seriously into small roles as a child and a teenage artist, she did two very important things. One, she refused to be disheartened by the long succession of bit-roles and being a supporting cast member. Two, she took on to get trained in music and dance, and spent a good slice of her developmental years under the tutelage of the famous Badri Prasad, the multi-talented artist active in the industry at that time. Her perseverance paid off. Her roles started to get more prominent, and her co-stars the more famous ones. She appeared as the younger sister to KL Saigal in ‘Parwaana’ (1947). The same year, she also appeared as the younger sister of Motilal in ‘Beete Din’. On to 1949, and she was now the younger sibling of actor Shyam in the film ‘Kaneez’.

In 1950, she got a very prominent role as the wayward younger sister of Shyam and Karan Dewan in the film ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’. The title role was played by Nargis (paired with Karan Dewan), but the role played by Shyama was pivotal as the rebellious daughter in the family, who is on the verge of eloping with Yakub, a self serving con-man. Then came 1951 – she was paired as the love interest of Balraj Sahni in ‘Hum Log’; and the same year, she got to play a prominent role in ‘Taraana’ as the third part of the love triangle completed by Dilip Kumar and Madhubala.

It was in 1952 that she was able to belie the popular adage in the industry – ‘once an extra, always and extra’. But this graduation was not without its moments of anxiety and a heart stopping near miss. IS Johar was looking for an effervescent and a lively young new face as the lead for his maiden directorial venture – ‘Shrimati Ji’. Familiar with Shyama and her capabilities from their earlier films together viz., ‘Chhoti Bhaabhi’ (1950) and ‘Ek Teri Nishaani’ (1949), Johar chose Shyama from a list of over 100 candidates for the role. Shyama was excited and happy with this groundbreaking development in her career.

But a scare was still in store, and the career that we see, was almost never. A couple of reels had been shot. One day on the studio floor, one of the financiers was present. On seeing Shyama, he made a curt remark that this girl is too thin to impress in a leading role, and walked away. One can imagine the turmoil that followed, with doubts appearing in the minds of the entire team. Shyama herself notes that she went home and cried all night – here was a once in a lifetime break that suddenly became so close to slip out of her fingers. After the crying session was over, she pulled herself together and made a resolve to address even this issue. Next day, she went out to seek medical help. Whoever would think of a thing like a diet to ‘gain’ weight? She went on a crash diet to do exactly this – gain weight. In a short period of time, she gained a reasonable amount of weight, and went right back in to complete the film.

One more significant episode occurred in the year 1951. Shyama was filming for ‘Sazaa’; she was the second lead to Nimmi and again, the third vertex of the love triangle that includes Dev Anand and Nimmi. The director and cinematographer of this film was Fali Mistry. Affections developed between the two, and two got married. Her family would have preferred a Muslim son-in-law. Fali Mistry being a Parsi, her father did not accept her new venture in life. She did get support from her mother, who was present at the small and quiet ceremony for the wedding. Her father  did not communicate with her for years. Shyama mentions in her interview that the ice between them was eventually broken when she gave birth to her first son, and went to him to get his blessings.

One of the understandings between Shyama and Fali was that she would continue to work in films. Apparently there were other suitors also, but as per herself, the proposals did not go further because the gentlemen did not agree to allow her to continue her work.

Through the 1950s, as well as early sixties, Shyama was in the top bracket of leading ladies in Hindi cinema. A golden period in her career, her popularity can be gauged by the fact that 82 of her films were released in the period from 1952 to 1960. In 1954 alone, 14 of her films came on the silver screen, and 13 in the year 1955. In all 27 films in a period of two consecutive years is a record in itself. An interesting aspect of her career has been that while she was in demand as the leading lady, she continued to do all kinds of roles, including second lead and even as a vamp. By her own admission, she was never too much hung up on being the leading lady, but was always more interested in the content of the role. In fact her only Filmfare award is for her performance in ‘Sharda’ in 1957 – as the best female actor in a supporting role. In the later part of 1960s, she transitioned into character roles and continued to work till the end of 1980s. Her last film as a character artist is ‘Hathyaar’ released in 1989.

Fali Mistry passed away unexpectedly in 1979, leaving behind a family of two sons and one daughter.

In the past 3, 4 days I was in travel myself, and was disconnected from the net for part of that time. Settling back after returning, as I processed through the email backlog, I got to see this message from Harish Raghuvanshi ji, informing about the sad demise of Shyama. She was 82, and as per her latest interviews some years back, she was quite satisfied with the full life she had led, and with her accomplishments on the silver screen.

As I sorted through the list of her songs as yet unpublished on our blog, searching for an appropriate song for this tribute, I came across this chirpy and playful song from the film ‘Ghar Basaa Ke Dekho’ from 1963. I had not heard it before. As I played this song, it struck me as so much Shyama herself, and I knew this is the song so suitable to go along with the write up about her. On screen, she leads the singing and dancing within a group of friends. Some of the faces are familiar, but I am unable to place any names. I request our knowledgeable readers and friends to help identify other actresses supporting Shyama in this song.

The words are from the pen of Rajendra Krishan and the lilting music comes from the mind of Chitragupt. The singing voices are of Suman Kalyanpur, Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. Shyama gets to lip sync most of the lines of Suman Kalyanpur, and the lines sung by Usha Mangeshkar are shared between more than one of the supporting ladies on screen.

A wonderful expression of a philosophy of life, that one can surmise from her interviews, was very dear to Shyama herself. The thought behind the bubbly vivacity in this song is just the same thought that first made her raise her hand unhesitatingly to Rizvi Sb’s query on who would like to join the filming of the group song (qawwaali song in ‘Zeenat’). That is Shyama.

Or to put it more correctly now – that was Shyama. Only the memories remain now.

bichhad kar chale jaao hum se kahin
magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin

magar ye na kehna mohabbat nahin . . .

Dear Shyama, RIP – Rest In Playfulness, Always 🙂

आह भरते हैं अशक पीते हैं
ज़िंदगी क्या है एक हंगामा
एक हंगामा रोज़ हो जाये
कहकहों के बगैर क्या जीना
ज़िंदगी कहकहों में खो जाये
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले

आदमी को मिली हैं क्यों आँखें
देख ले जिस कदर नज़ारे हैं
आदमी को मिली हैं क्यों आँखें
देख ले जिस कदर नज़ारे हैं
बाग तेरा हैं फूल तेरे हैं
और तेरे ही चाँद तारे हैं
ज़िंदगी नाम हैं बहारों का
हम बहारों का रस निचोड़ेंगे
ज़िंदगी एक बार मिलती है
एक अरमान भी ना छोड़ेंगे
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले

ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
ज़िंदगी तेरी एक हलचल है
रक़्स है साज है तराना है
इक जगह पर क़याम क्या करना
हर चमन तेरा आशियाना है
एक पल भी ना फिक्र में बीते
मुसकुराता जा गीत गाता जा
और दुनिया जो राह में आए
एक ठोकर उसे लगाता जा
जिधर जी में आया
जिधर जी में आया
उधर हम चले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
हमें दुनिया से क्या
वो मरे या जले
वो मरे या जले
