Today’s song is from an obscure old film of the first decade of the Talkie films- Snehlata-1936.

The song is sung by Rajkumari under the baton of Lallubhai Nayak. This Prakash Pictures’ film was directed by Balwant Bhatt-elder brother of another director Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast of the film was, Gulab, Jayant, Panna, Umakant, Shirin Bano, Rajkumari,Lallubhai etc etc.

When films started to be made in India, in the early part of the 20th century, only local talent was used,naturally. As the industry started taking a shape,it was seen as an opportunity to earn wages. It was also an industry which did not require high education, a better creed or a particular religion. All that was required was to look reasonably well ( even tolerable) and readiness to do work. When films were shown in villages towns and cities, it created a desire in the hearts of aspirants and a flow to the film centres like Lahore, Calcutta, Kolhapur and Bombay started.

The Talkie film set the norms for actors. for the main roles-good looks, ability to speak in Hindi and singing ability and for other roles-tolerable looks, readiness to learn and do hard work were the standards. Being Talkie, knowledge of speaking Hindi/Urdu became necessary. This automatically became an exit point for several European, Jew and Anglo Indian artistes who had dominated the silent films. Thus the gates now opened for Hindu and Muslim girls, boys and adults.

As the industry grew, opportunities and requirements increased. Aspirants from other than local stations started pouring in, making the film industry a true representative Of Bharat, that is India. people from far off places thronged to Bombay, Lahore and Calcutta. Bombay had artistes hailing from U.P., Rajasthan, Bengal, Punjab, Delhi in addition to Gujarat and Maharashtra. Some artistes came from obscure and far off places too.

Some such examples come to mind offhand are, Hero Vijaykumar came from Shimla ( later even Sheila Ramani also came from there), kamla Kotnis from Andhra, Ranjan from Tamilnad, A,K,Dar aka Jeevan and Chandramohan from Kashmir, Amirbai Karnataki from Hubli, Sarvottam Badami from Bangalore etc etc.

When actress Shyama Zutshi from Kashmir acted in films like Vishnu Bhakti-34 and Karvaan E Hayaat-35, there was a hue and cry. Famous actor Chandramohan – who too was from Kashmir-resented that women from Kashmir came into films and warned Shyama not to act in films and go back. Eventually, she left films and joined Politics with her father in Kashmir. She is popularly considered as the First Kashmiri girl in Hindi films- followed by Yashodhara Katju in the 40s and 50s. Now of course so many girls and boys are from Kashmir in films. However Shyama Zutshi was NOT the first actress form Kashmir.

The First actress form Kashmir to work as a Heroine in Hindi films was GULAB, who was part of the cast of today’s film Snehlata-36. Her real name was Saraswati Devi. She was born on 10-6-1908 at Jammu. She joined Krishna Film Company in 1924. Her first silent film’Krishna kumar’ came in 1925. She worked in 60 silent films. Her last silent film was ‘Dagabaz Dushman’-32, made by east India Film co.Bombay.

Her first Talkie film was Suryakumari-33, made by Vishnu Cinetone. It was directed by Dhirubhai Desai. She sang one song ‘more preetam jab ghar aaye’ composed bu Kikubhai Yagnik. Then came Baburao Patel’s ‘Bala Joban’-34, Sewa Sadan-34 and Nai Duniya-34 ( Debut film of Rajkumari and Jayant). In this film Gulab sang 2 songs.

Gulab was very beautiful and quite popular in film industry. Some of her films were Bambai ki sethani-35, Challenge-37, Bharosa-40, Pyas-41, Ek Raat-42, Station master-42, Gaali-44, Rattan-44, Mann ki jeet-44, Mirza Sahibaan-47, Lahore-49, Badi Behan-49, stage-51, Post Box 999-58, Chhabili-60 etc etc. She acted in 160 films. her last film seems to be Haqeeqat-64 ( stats from MuVyz)

The Hero of film Snehlata-36 was Jayant. I used to like his masculine, well built personality and resonant voice. Rugged type of roles ( like in Madhumati-58) suited him best. I wonder how this Pathan must have acted in love story films ! His real name was Zakeria Khan. His family was from Peshawar. he was born on 8-10-1915. Till he was 15 year old, his father Sardar S.A.Khan was a Sports superintendent in Alwar state. After schooling, Jayant joined Alwar state army as second Lt. After 2 years he quietly resigned and proceeded to Bombay to become an actor. His family was unaware of this.

For few months, he went from one studio to another looking for an opening. Finally Director Vijay Bhatt met him and took him in Prakash Pictures Gujarati film ‘Sansar leela’-33, which was remade in Hindi as Nai Duniya-34. After this no work for few months and he did smaller roles in stunt films- about 30 films. Director Gunjal advised him to shift to Social films and he did Mud-40, opposite Shobhana Samarth. Then there was no looking back. Films like Mala-41( which was remade as Amar-54 and Jayant had acted in it also doing the same role), Zevar-42, Daavat-43, Poonji-43, Shirin Farhad-45, Maa baap ki laaj-46, Shoharat-48 etc came to him.

Jayant did 105 films. He sang one song in film State Express-38 also. His last film was Insaniyat-74. Film ‘Love and God’ was released in 1986. Jayant had 3 sons- Amjad khan (Gabbar singh), Inayat khan and Imtiyaz khan. Jayant died on 2-6-1975….just 2 months before film ‘Sholey’-75 was released !

The film was directed by the elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt- Balwant Bhatt. He was born at Porbandar,Gujarat 0n 13-1-1909. Balwant started his career by assisting Naval Gandhi in 1930-31 and then N.B.Vakil at Sagar Studios in 1932. He turned Director with the advent of Talkie films and joined Prakash Pictures with Actress-1934. His first film was Chalta purja-1932 and the last one was Nagin aur Sapera-1966. He directed 33 films,mostly stunt and C grade films. He directed some Gujarati films like Sansar Leela,Seth Sagsha,Diwadandi,Snehlata etc.He was the producer of Dillagi-1942,Gunehgar,Alif Laila etc. Diwadandi-1950 became famous for its song-” Taari aankhni afini”, sung by Dilip Dholakia with music by Ajit Merchant. His film Mordhwaj-52 was the Debut film for MD Narayan Dutt. Balwant Bhatt died on 7-2-1965,at Bombay.

Film Snehlata -36 was also made in Gujarati. In those days, the regional language film industries were not that developed, so bilingual film making was quite common. The film seems to have had 7 songs, but HFGK mentions only 4 songs-all sung by Rajkumari, who was a regular singer in that period. The film ‘which was also known as ‘Bharat ki Devi’ had all songs written jointly by brothers Vijay and Shankar Bhatt.

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ठ’ – ठहर ज़रा ओ जानेमन, ना हाथ लगाना जानेमन ॰ ॰ ॰

फिर तेरी याद नए गीत सुनाने आई

Yes, it is a story of every day – a song plays and memories come by. Or sometimes, memories passing thru remind of a song that is so very dear to the heart. That is all that remains now – memories and songs playing hide and seek in the dimly lit bylanes of the mind.

– – – –

The next song in this series comes from the 1976 film ‘Ladki Bholi Bhaali’. And incidentally this film is also making its debut on the blog today. That makes it three in a row today – 🙂 🙂 .

The film was directed by Ashok Roy for Mahesh Chitra, Bombay. The star cast listed for the film is Asha Sachdev, Gautam Sarin, Junior Mehmood, Ramesh Dev, Tarun Ghosh, Anita Guha, Ranveer Raj, Ram Mohan, Lalita Chatterjee, Rupali, Darshan, Krishan Duggal, Baldev Trehan, Manik Dutt, Master Devanand, Heena Kausar, Rakesh Pandey, Snehlata, Bharat Bhushan, and Dheeraj etc.

The film has music by Usha Khanna. Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film, three of which are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri. All those three songs are solos in the voice of Asha Bhosle. The fourth song, which is the song presented today, is a duet in the voice of Rafi Sb and Usha Khanna herself. And it is written by Saawan Kumar Tak.

Saawan Kumar has had a good partnership with Usha Khanna. Usha ji has given music to 11 films which have either been directed by Saawan Kumar, or he has written lyrics for them. They were married, but the matrimonial relationship did not last for long. Together they have created such popular hits like “Barkha Rani, Zara Jam Ke Barso“, “Wo Jidhar Dekh Rahe Hain, Sab Udhar Dekh Rahe Hain” (both from ‘Sabak’, 1973) “Teri Galiyon Mein Na Rakhenge Kadam. . .“, (‘Hawas’, 1974), “Sar e Mehfil Mera Imaan Beimaan Ho Gaya” (‘Ab Kya Hoga’, 1977), “Shaayad Meri Shaadi Ka Khyaal. . .“, “Zindagi Pyaar Ka Geet Hai” (both from ‘Souten’, 1983). (I am surprised that this last mentioned song is still waiting to come on board.)

Coming to today’s song, it is picturized on Rakesh Pandey and Asha Sachdev Snehlata, with Gautam Sarin also present in the scene and also lip-syncing some lines. I have not yet seen the film, and so the situation is not clear to me. I request other friends and readers who may have seen this film, to add some background information about the situation in this song.

Song – Thehar Zara O Jaan e mann  (Ladki Bholi Bhaali) (1976) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Usha Khanna, Lyrics – Saawan Kumar Tak, MD – Usha Khanna

Lyrics

thehar zara o jaan e mann
na haath lagaana jaan e mann
thehar zara o jaan e mann
na haath lagaana jaan e mann

arre ja teri to
re re re re ja teri to
chalne waali yahaan teri chaal nahin re haan

thehar zara o jaan e mann

arre thehar zara o jaan e mann

“Naatak” (1975) was produced by C D Shah and Harish Upadhyay and directed by Sohanlal Kanwar for Filmland Production, Bombay. The movie had Vijay Arora, Moushumi Chatterjee, Snehalata, Jayashree T, Sulochana Latkar, Madhup Sharma, Raj Mehra, Raj Rani, Bhagwan Dada, Naazima, Subhash Ghai, Sunder, Tiwari aka Ramayan Tiwari, Shabina, Hari Shivdasani, Alka etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. Here are the details of these four songs:-

Sab se buri sharaab hai main hoon buri sharaab se 14245 7-Apr-18
Mera rang mera roop…raaja sach bolo main kaisi lagti hoon 14260 11-Apr-18

As can be seen, the movie made its debut as far back as in 2012. That song remained the only song from the movie in the blog till 2018 when the next three songs were covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Naatak”(1975) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a “diversion” song on a very pretty looking Snehlata, who is seen trying to distract a very young looking Subhash Ghai.Yes, this is a song where Subhash Ghai figures as an actor.

I have not watched this movie so I am not fully sure what is the background behind this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Naatak”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon (Naatak)(1975) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon
to chhuriyaan chal jaaye
jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon oon
to chhuriyaan chal jaayen
aankhen upar se neeche jhuka doon oon
aankhen upar se neeche jhuka doon
to teer chal jaaye
jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon
to chhuriyaan chal jaayen

meri mohabbat meri jawaani
meri mohabbat meri jawaani
in donon ki hai lambi kahaani
meri mohabbat meri jawaani
ye kahaani jo tumko suna doon oon
ye kahaani jo tumko suna doon oon
to raat dhal jaaye
jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon oon
to chhuriyaan chal jaayen

nazron pe kitne parde hain naqli
nazron pe kitne parde hain naqli
chehre ke peechhe chehra hai asli
nazron pe kitne parde hain naqli
jo main wo roop tumko dikha doon
jo main wo roop tumko dikha doon
to rang badal jaaye
jo main chehre se ghoonghat hata doon
to chhuriyaan chal jaayen

meri adaayen andaaz mere
meri adaayen andaaz mere
parde mein hain ye sab raaz mere
meri adaayen andaaz mere
jo main ye raaz tumko bata doon oon
jo main ye raaz tumko bata doon oon
to jaan nikal jaaye

Hullo Atuldom

Yesterday (27 march 2018) was World Theatre Day. I learnt about this in the morning yesterday, as I was listening to the Vividh Bharati. Apparently, this was initiated in the year 1961, by The International Theatre Institute. It is celebrated annually on 27thMarch.

We have a number of actors in Bollywood, both past and present, who started their acting career on stage. Many of them never miss an opportunity to go back to act in a play or theatre reading etc. “We cannot forget the immediate response that we get from the audiences” is the most heard sentiment from these actors who keep going back to do theatre. And then, we have had actors who have performed ‘in front of the camera’ as they would perform ‘in front of a live audience’ – remember Sohrab Modi and Prithviraj Kapoor (in some of his initial movies). But the later generation of actors adopted different styles for theatre and movies. Also improved sound systems in theatres must have helped in later years; when one didn’t have to speak in ‘loud booming voices’ so as to be heard in the last rows.

Today with this post I am thinking of Farooque Shaikh who also did a lot of theatre and who would have been 70 on 25th March, just two days back (he passed away in 2013). I also remember Om Puri who was a product of National School of Drama along with Naseeruddin Shah. And yes, how can one forget our dear Shashi Kapoor and his work in bringing theatre to the layman through his Prithvi Theatre also helping many theatre groups in the process by giving a platform to exhibit their art.

Yesterday’s Indian Express (online edition) has an article on how the Twitterati are celebrating the day- http://indianexpress.com/article/trending/trending-globally/what-is-world-theatre-day-twitter-reactions-5112818/. The article begins with Shakespeare’s famous quote from “As You Like It” –

“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”

Strangely or coincidentally the song that I zeroed in for also says exactly the same thing. I had thought of it the moment I heard about the ‘World Theatre Day’. Then I sat through looking up articles on the internet and I referred Wikipedia for additional information and in the process landed on what Indian Express site had.

The song is written by a lyricist – Anand Bakshi – whose work I admire because he is one of the poets who puts the common man’s thoughts in poetry format (there are few more lyricists who do that but more on that later). The music is composed by Laxmi-Pyaare and playback is by Asha Bhonsle for Moushumi Chatterjee, whose presence is making Sulochana and Raj Mehra uncomfortable, while Vijay Arora and Nazeema are visibly squirming (would like to know why 😉). Then there is Jayshree T. dancing and Hari Shivdasani enjoying himself. There is also Snehlata (in white saree) who seems to be the happiest among the girls at the party. There are some more familiar faces in the party, which I am unable to name immediately. I request other readers to please help add more names to this video clip.

The film is directed by Sohanlal Kanwar and is one of the movies that has Subhash Ghai in its cast.

There was a time when we used to discuss songs on the occasion of anni9versaries of artists. That practice is no longer as common now a days as used to be the case. Things are slow in the blog at the moment, but one should not be surprised if we soon pick up pace once again. At this juncture my time is being taken up in other matters. Not that I have not spent time on the blog. I have spent good amount of time in background work, and the results of that may have escaped the attention of most. Some of the result of my work is available on the blog for those who may have noticed it (like for instance Sudhir Ji and Mr Sadanand Kamath, for instance). Then there are other background work whose results are not reflected yet in the blog, but they are there with me and they will enable me to go about futute posying of songs in a more systematic and streamlined manner.

I do not know as to why I suddenly remembered Sanjeev Kumar (real name Haribhai Jariwala) today early in the morning when I was preparing for my morning walk. His anniversary dates were nowhere near and I have not seen any of his films and video clips for a long time. As it is, my ‘area of operations’ on YT are mainly confined to the watching/listening of video/audio clips pertaining to the period between 1940-1960, straying sometime up to late 60s and most of his his songs does not fit in to my preference. Probably, this was a reminder to me from Sanjeev Kumar donning a white suit and trouser in true suspense film style echoing “old man, have a peep at me too sometime”.

“Khamoshi” (1969) was a superb movie, and it earned rave reviews when it was released. It was a labour of love for the director Asit Sen (not the comedian Asit Sen but a different person) and it was a remake of his own bangla movie called “deep jwele jaaye” (1959).
