On this date ten years back viz on 29 November 2012, Seven songs from seven movies were covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
7088 Dekho aaya ye kaisa zamaana Daag (1952) Movie YIPPEED in the blog with this song

7094 Phir thhes lagi dil ko Kashmir Ki Kali (1964) Movie YIPPEED in the blog with this song

We can observe that four movies (out of seven) have already been YIPPEED in the blog. In fact, three movies were YIPPEED on the blog on that very day (29 november 2012).

That leaves us with three movies that are technically eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (29 november 2022).

“Daaku”(1955) is one BTYC eligible movie today.

“Daaku”(1955) was directed by Aspi Irani for Basant Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Shashikala, Kuldip Kaur, Anwar Hussain, Maya Das, Babu Raaje, Sheikh, Naagpal, Michael, Habib, Gulnar, Wazir Muhammad Khan, Azurie, Iqbal, Adib etc. Sulochana was also there in a guest appearance.

“Daaku”(1955) had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Daaku”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha BHonsle. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snhal Bhatkar.

Theb song is picturised as a stage dance song of sorts on Shashikala and Shammi Kapoor who seem to be playin Indian version of gypsies. One can watch Kuldeep Kaur among the audience who seems to be disturbed at the sight of the dancing duo on stage.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Here is the fourth song from “Daaku”(1955) to appear in the blog. HFGK mentions the singer as ust “mahila swar”. Listening to the voice, it is clear that Asha Bhonsle is the singer. Manoharlal Khanna is the lyricist. Music is composed by Snehal Bhatkar.

Prakashchandra, who sent the lyrics of the song and other details is not sure about the identity of the female dancer. He guesses her to be Maya Das.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancer.

————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 27 August 2012) saw a whopping ten songs from ten different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

6530 Mastaana albela sirf ek tu hai laakhon mein akela Sharaarat(2002) One song covered out of 7 so far

It can be observed that six movies (out of ten) whose songs were covered in the blog on this Date ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. That leaves us with four movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (27 August 2022).

“Hamaari Beti”(1950) is one of the eligible movies.

“Hamaari Beti”(1950) was produced and directed by Shobhana Samarth for Shobhana Samarth Pictures Bombay. This movie was produced to launch the career of Shobhana Samarth’s eldest daughter Nutan.

The movie had Nutan, Shekhar,Baby Tanuja, Motilal, Shobhana Samarth, Veera, David, K.N.Singh, Randhir, Agha, Pramila, Cuckkoo, Amir bai, Nandani, Master Ratan etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. As many as six songs have been covered so far.

Here is the seventh song from “Hamaari Beti”(1950) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Lyricist is not mentioned in HFGK. Snehal Bhatkar is the music director.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is easy to guess that the song, given the nature of its lyrics (expression of love) was picturised on Nutan. However, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part IX: Year 1955
———————————————————————————————————

In this episode, we arrive at the tenth year of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in Hindi movies. She completed a decade of playback singing in HFM this year. She had already notched some firsts in HFM playback singing that did not get noticed at that time. For instance, she had become the first playback singer ever to sing more than one thousand songs in Hindi movies by 1954. She kept setting benchmarks that others could only dream of. We will discuss them at appropriate occasions.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 1955 :-

Statistically, this was the second most prolific year ever d]for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 218 songs, which was just 5 songs fewer than her all time record of 223 songs that she had set in 1951.

In 1955, she gave playback in 50 movies. To put things in perspective, 120 movies were released in 1955 and they contained 1016 songs. So Lata Mangeshkar gave plaback in 42 % of the movies released in 1955 and her voice appeared in 22 % of the songs created that year !

In 1955, Lata Mangeshkar worked with 31 music directors and 32 lyricists. She worked with nine music directors for the first time this year. They were Amarnath, B D Burman, Chitragupta, Jagmohan Sursagar, Jaidev, Manohar Arora, N Datta, Ravi and S Mohinder. This yaer, she worked with seven lyricists for the first time. They were Arshi Ajmeri, Raj Baldev Raj, Meera Bai, Pt Madhur, Nigar, Ravi and Sartaj.

By the end of 1955, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 1344 songs in 326 movies. The blog contains 1110 of these songs. This year, she became the first playback singer to sing over one thousand solo songs in Hindi movies. By the end of 1955, she had worked with 79 Music directors and 106 lyricists. That way, she completed a century of lyricists as well.

Here is the summary of her playback career in Hindi movies till end of 1955 :

One can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang in 50 movies that were released in 1955. All Lata Mangeshkar songs have been covered in 24 of these movies. So we only have 26 movies left from which Lata Mangeshkar songs can still be covered.

Alphabetically the first such movie is “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955). This movie was produced and directed by Leela Chitnis to launch the career of her son Ajeet Chitnis. The movie had Ajeet Chitnis, Uday, Chitra, Bipin Gupta, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Leela Chitnis etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the blog. The movie had three Lata solos. One of these songs has been covered.

Here is the second Lata song from “Aaj Ki Baat”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song, sung by Lata Mangeshkar is penned by Raj Baldev raj (working with Lata Mangeshkar for the first time). Snehal Bhatkar is the music director.

A very nice song, appearing fresh as daisy. I listened to this song for the first time only just now. A forgotten gem of a song that deserves to be better known among music lovers.

Today’s song is from film Pagle-1950.

1950 was the last year of the second decade of Talkie cinema. The effects of Partition had started showing effects. Entry of actors, directors and composers from Bengal – due to the crumbling of New Theatres – entry of newer artistes to replace the migrators and the changing tastes of the Indian people was being reflected in the films made in this year. The migration of artistes-both ways-continued with force till about the early 50s and slowed down in the early 60s, where finally it was stopped in 1965 by Pakistan rulers.

The social film Pagle-50 was produced and directed by Protima Dasgupta. The cast of the film was Begum Para, Madhuri, Jagirdar, Pratima Devi, Mubarak, David, Cuckoo etc.etc. The music was by V.G. Bhatkar – who was no one else, but Snehal Bhatkar. Since he was still w2orking in H.M.V., he could not use his real name. Some other composers also did this under same conditions. For example, C Ramchandra was working Filmistan, under a contract and he gave music to his friend Master Bhagwan’s films like Bhedi Bungala-49, Bhole Bhale-49, Babuji t50 and Bakshish-50. For these films CR used the name of his long time assistant P.Ramakant (Ramakant Paingankar). Similarly, Anil Biswas, while in contract with National Studios, gave music to Bombay Talkies film Basant-1942, using the name of Pannalal Ghosh, his own Brother in Law (sister singer Parul Ghosh’s husband). In 1942, Anil Biswas was very busy with as many as 5 films – Vijay, Jawani, Gareeb, Apna Paraya and his famous film Roti.

Under such situations, normally just one pseudo-name is used to hide the real identity legally, but in the case of Snehal Bhatkar he used several names for different films-
Rukmini Swayamwar-46….Vasudev-Sudhir (Phadke)
Neel Kamal-47….B.Vasudev
Sant Tukaram, Sati Ahilya-48 and Pagle-50….V.G.Bhatkar
Suhag Raat-48….Snehal
Thes-49….Snehal and finally
Hamari beti-50….Snehal Bhatkar. By this time he had resigned from HMV and was a free bird !

The film’s director Pratima Dasgupta started as an actress and then turned to be a Producer and Director. She was born on 5-9-1922 into a wealthy family of Bhavnagar, in Kathiyawar state. Her father was the Chief Engineer of Kathiyawar state. Her family was related to Rabindranath Tagore. So, after the initial education in England, she came to Shanti Niketan and completed her studies. She was a favourite and a favoured student throughout.

Looking at her acting skills, it was Tagore himself who recommended her to act in the Bangla film “Gora”-38, based on his own novel. Her role of Latika-daughter of Paresh babu in the film-who falls in Love with Bijoy and marries her- was liked by Tagore. She did one more film ‘Na hone wali baat’-38 in Hindi, followed by the Hindi version of Rukmini in 1939. After doing 4 Bangla films, she did the Trilingual film (Bangla, Hindi and English)- Raj nartaki-1941. This was made by Wadia movietone in Bombay and was directed by Modhu Bose, husband of the Heroine Sadhana Bose-the international dancer. She married Major Manzoor-ul- Huq, brother of actress Begum Para.

Her other Hindi films were Kunwara baap-42,Raja-43 and Shararat-44, all directed by Kishore Sahu. She also did Namaste in 1943.. After this she turned to Direction and did her first film Chhamiya-45, with Begum Para and David as a Lead pair. She repeated this team again in Pagle-50 also. However her second film ‘Jharna ‘-48 was banned by Morarji Desai, the then Chief Minister of Bombay Province, on the plea that the film had explicit sexual scenes in it. This was a financial disaster for Pratima and she decided to quit films.

In all, Pratima Dasgupta did 10 Hindi films and 8 Bangla films.

In Hindi film industry, branding is very common or rather Popular, from the beginning. Actually, Branding reconfirms the actor’s strong points, his expertise in acting. For example, Ashok kumar and Motilal were known for Natural acting, for beauty it was Madhubala, for excellence in acting- Meena kumari, Sanjeev kumar for variety in roles, Sohrab Modi and Raaj Kumar for dialogue delivery, Tragedy king was Dilip Kumar (only till 1955), Ajit was Sophisticated Villain etc. etc. There was one actress who was famous for her ” Oomph”. It is said that her sexy photos were pasted by U.S. soldiers in their rooms, during Vietnam war. The ” TIME ” photographer did a Photo session with her. She too conscientiously maintained her ‘ Sexy ‘ image and so she was never known as a good actress in acting. Her name – BEGUM PARA.

Begum Para (née Para Haq; 25 December 1926 – 9 December 2008) was a Hindi film actress who was active mostly in the 1940s and 1950s. After 50 years, she returned to films with her last role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya (2007) as Sonam Kapoor’s grandmother. In her times in 1950s, she was considered a glamour girl of Bollywood, so much so, that Life magazine had a special session with her devoted to her fine sensuous photographs.

Begum Para was born as Para Haq in Jehlum now a days in Pakistan. Her family was from Aligarh. Her father, Mian Ehsanul-Haq, was a judge who at some point in his life went into the judicial service of the princely state of Bikaner, now northern Rajasthan, where he became chief justice of its highest court. He was a fine cricketer of his time. She was brought up very disciplined yet liberal. She spent her childhood in Bikaner. She was educated at the Aligarh Muslim University. Her elder brother Haq, had gone off to Bombay in the late 1930s to become an actor. There he met and fell in love with the Bengali actress Protima Dasgupta, and married her.
Whenever she visited them in Bombay, she was quite taken up with the glitzy world of her sister-in-law. She used to accompany her on many occasions and get-togethers. People would get quite impressed with her looks and offer her a lot of roles. One such offer came from Shashadhar Mukherjee and Devika Rani. Her father consented to her wishes reluctantly, and requested her to never work in Lahore.

Begum Para’s first break turned out to be 1944 film Chand, from Prabhat Studios in Poona. Prem Adib was the hero, and Sitara Devi was the vamp in the film. It did extremely well and Para started getting paid about Rs. 1500 a month. Soon after, she and her sister-in-law Protima made a film called Chamia (1945) based on the novel ‘Pygmalion’, which again was a huge success. Para signed a lot of films after Chamia, but she couldn’t quite establish herself as an actress. Because she had a highly scandalous image, people always gave her the role of glamour doll in most films. She didn’t mind it because she always played herself on screen.

She did Sohni Mahiwal (1946) and Zanjeer (1947) with Ishwarlal and Dikshit; Neel Kamal (1947) with Raj Kapoor; Mehendi (1947) with Nargis; Suhaag Raat (1948) with Bharat Bhushan and Geeta Bali; Jhalka (1948); and Meherbani (1950) with Ajit Khan. She also worked in Ustad Pedro (1951), produced and directed by the then well-known actor, Sheikh Mukhtar. It was a fun film, and was packed with action, romance, and stunts.

In 1951 she posed for photographer James Burke for a Life magazine photo shoot. Para’s last role was in the movie Kar Bhala in 1956. She was also offered to play Nigar Sultana’s role ‘Bahar’ in Mughal-e-Azam (1960). However, she refused to play the role because she considered it against her image. In all, she acted in 34 films in her career.

She made a comeback on the silver screen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya in 2007 as Sonam Kapoor’s grandmother.

She married actor Nasir Khan, the younger brother of Bollywood actor Dilip Kumar. They had three children, including the actor Ayub Khan. Begum Para’s father Mian Ehsan-ul-Haq of Jalandhar, was a judge who joined the princely state of Bikaner, now northern Rajasthan, where he became chief justice of its highest court. Her husband died in 1974. Following her husband’s death, she briefly migrated to Pakistan in 1975. Two years later, she relocated back to India.

She died in her sleep on 9-12-2008, at the age of 81 years. (Thanks to wikipedia).

Film Pagle-50 had 9 songs. 6 songs are already presented here. Today’s duet would be its 7th song to be discussed here. It is a duet sung by Rajkumari and Talat Mehmood. The song is quite ordinary. As such, Snehal Bhatkar was not known for many melodious songs in his films. This duet is an average one.

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part V: Year 1951
———————————————————————————————————

This series began in a small way because Lata Mangeshkar had sung very few songs in her earlier years -only nine songs in first two years and 50 songs in the third year.

From her fourth year, viz 1949, Lata Mangeshkar was on her own. She sang 153 songs in 1949 and established her as the new female playback singing sensation of HFM. The next year viz 1950 saw her singing 143 songs.

Now we come to her next decade, viz the decade of 1950s. The first year of the decade, viz 1951 saw Lata Mangeshkar singing as many as 223 songs for Hindi movies that were released in this calender year. This is the highest number of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies released in a calender year. So statistically Lata Mangeshkar touched the peak of her playback career in 1951.

Song-Chanda tujhko laaj na aaye (Bhola Shankar)(1951) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Snehal Bhatkar

Lyrics

Chanda aa tujhko laaj na aaye ae
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

jinki jataaon mein basta tu
aaj arre un bin hansta kyun
door chhupaa kar pran piyaa ko
apna roop dikhaaye chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye ae
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

sheesh piyaa ke tohe tu pyaara
un bin laage jo angaara
un bin laage jo angaara
roothh gaye mere chandmauli to
tu kyun mukh dikhlaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
mere chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

saath gagan ganga tere sautin
leti hai mujhse badle gin gin
leti hai mujhse badle gin gin
poochh ise kahin mere piya ka
baithhi na soch(?) chhupaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
meri chhod piya ka saath
akela
man hi man muskaaye
chanda
tujhko laaj na aaye
chanda aa

Kidar Sharma has often been given a title of ‘one-man film industry’. He was producer, director, actor, story/screen-play/dialogue writer, lyricist, editor, still photographer etc. He was also known to have the working knowledge of Hindustani classical music. He also sang a song on himself in the film ‘Inquilaab’ (1935). With a vast knowledge gained from working in New Theatres, Kolkata during 1933-41 and in Ranjit Movietone during 1942-47, Kidar Sharma had directed 11 films and written lyrics for 23 films before he turned producer with ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947).

Kidar Sharma had a passion for film making. Otherwise why a young man of 22 years after completing M.A. in English literature would join the New Theatres (NT) as a painter. He would have very well got the job of a lecturer in any college in around his native Punjab. His progress in filmy career was rapid. Within 2 years of joining NT, he was a still photographer and the lyricist for ‘Devdas’ (1935). he became dialogue writer for the Hindi version of ‘Vidyapati’ (1937) in addition to song writing. By 1939, Kidar Sharma had become a free-lance director with ‘Aulaad’ (1939’, his debut film as a director followed by ‘Chitralekha’ (1941) which became much talked about film. Incidentally, after about 23 years, Nadiadwala of Pushpa Films engaged Kidar Sharma to direct ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), a remake of its 1941 version.

After directing 9 films for Ranjit Movietone, Kidar Sharma decided to produce and direct ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) under his own banner, Oriental Pictures. In fact, nobody was prepared to produce this film, not even his employer, Ranjit Movietone. So, he was forced to become the producer. He arranged finances by selling the distribution rights of the film in advance. For his maiden venture, he introduced two new comers – Raj Kapoor and Madhubala. Both the actors had done some bit roles in films before they were given the lead roles for the first time in the film. The film was an average success in terms of box office collections. Since then, Kidar Sharma has produced and directed 14 films between 1947 and 1980.

As a producer-director, Kidar Sharma was not a showman like Raj Kapoor for whom the production value in terms of star cast, techniques and costly sets for film shooting were as important as the theme of the film. On the other hand, Kidar Sharma was an antithesis of a showman. He believed in low budget film which ruled out taking star actors for the lead roles. Hence, for almost all his films which he produced and directed, he preferred new comers and his protégées to whom he had earlier introduced in his films. In this process, he gave to the Hindi film industry, popular actors like Raj Kapoor, Madhubala, Geeta Bali, Bharat Bhushan, Mala Sinha, Tanuja etc to whom he introduced in his films as lead actors for the first time. Similarly, he mostly relied on Snehal Bhatkar and Roshan as music directors for his films who were introduced by him in his films ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947) and ‘Sohag Raat’ (1948), respectively for the first time.

Kidar Sharma’s last box office successful film as a producer-director was ‘Baawre Nain’ (1950) with Raj Kapoor and Geeta Bali in the lead roles. All his subsequent films like ‘Shokhiyaan’ (1951), ‘Gunaah’ (1953), ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954) and Rangeen Raaten’ (1956), did not fare well at the box office. All his films in the 1960s and thereafter numbering 6 either failed miserably at the box office or did not get released. I guess, ‘Sehme Huye Sitaare’ (1994) was his last film which remained unreleased in the theatres.

I have watched selectively a few films of Kidar Sharma from 1940s to 1960s. In most of his films, the story is based on a village or a small town and he tries to depict the intricate human relationships. All his films gives an impression that he had not come out of the Bengali mode of film making which were losing stream in Hindi film industry in the later 1960s where films were seen more as a medium of entertainment to fill the coppers of producers and distributors in terms of profits than covering the social issues concerning the society at large. Kidar Sharma did not fit in this milieu. So, the last 5-6 films produced and directed by him became obscure to such an extent that most of the us do not even remember the title of the films.

‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) was one of the obscure films produced and directed by Kidar Sharma. The star cast included Kanan Kaushal, Yuvraj, Madhup Sharma, Naaz, Anant Marathe, Gauri Varma, Veena Sood with Shyama, Dev Kumar Gajanan Jagirdar, Hiralal and Maruti as guest artists. The film had 6 songs (including one song re-used from ‘Chhora Chhori’ (1954). Kidar Sharma wrote the lyrics which were set to music by Snehal Bhatkar.

The film was certified by the Censor Board on December 5, 1989. I am not aware whether the film was released in the theatres. I also do not find the gramophone/CD version the songs. Fortunately, the VCD of the film is available on one of the video sharing platforms. After watching the initial part of the film, I lost interest in watching the rest of the film. However, I have watched the picturisation of 3 songs in the film. My take on this film is as under:

1. Kanan Kaushal in 1989 was 50. But in this film, she looks much younger. Incidentally, Kanan Kaushal made her debut in Hindi film in 1969.when she was 30.

2. Of the 6 songs, one song is rendered by Mohammed Rafi with Suman Kalyanpur. The voice of Rafi sounds like his voice of the 60s. There is another duet in which Rajkumari Dubey sings for Kanan Kaushal. There are two songs by ghazal singer, Mahesh Chandra who had also sung in ‘Maikhaana’ (1967) for Kidar Sharma.

3. The treatment in the film in terms of cinematography, costumes and dialogues give an impression that this film was shot in the 60s through early 70s.

My own hunch is that the film was majorly shot between 1970 and 1975. Kanan Kaushal had become a well sought-after actress for mythological films after the tremendous success of her film ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975). In the wake of her success, I do not think that she would have agreed to act in ‘Pyaase Nain’ post 1975. Going by the style of film making by Kidar Sharma in his later years, during which time he used to shoot the film as and when he could raise finance, this film must have been delayed for want of finance. By the time the film got completed, it was terribly out of date. Probably, the film got released only on Television.

One of the six songs which I liked the most from the film ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) is ‘aao aawaaz se aawaaz milaakar gaayen’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur which I am presenting here. The song is written by Kidar Sharma which is set to music by Snehal Bhatkar. When I said earlier that Rafi’s voice sounds like that of his voice in the 60s, I remember his voice in the song dil-e-betaab ko seene se lagaana hoga from ‘Paalki’ (1967). Incidentally, this song is also sung by Mohammed Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur.

With this song, ‘Pyaase Nain’ (1989) makes its debut on the Blog.
