Today’s song is from film Sant Janabai-49.

This was a film made by Prabhat Film Company, Poona. It was produced by S.(Saheb mama) Fattelal and it was directed by a Noted Marathi Director- Goving Ghanekar, who also directed one more Hindi film Shiv Leela-52. Both the films were Bilingual,made in Hindi and Marathi. The lyrics for the Hindi version were written by Pt.Narendra Sharma and the music was composed by Sudhir Phadke. The story of the film and the screenplay was by G.D.Madgulkar – a very famous Marathi writer and poet from Maharashtra. The cast of the film was Hansa Wadkar, Shakuntala, Ganesh Abhyankar, Gauri, Balakram, Javdekar, Kumar Ashok etc.

During the period 30s to mid 40s, Indian Film Industry was dominated by film production giants like New Theatres, Bombay Talkies, Ranjit, Prabhat and Wadia. Films were sold and seen just on the name of the film company. Diverse subjects were handled by these film makers and they contributed to maintaining Indian culture and traditions. This was the period when films with a message were made. Actors and directors had not yet become rule-makers. The studio system had a discipline.

However, after the second world war,lot of money came into the film line and slowly the priorities and values changed. Profits from the films became the major issue and this diverted most producers to make what they thought the audience wanted.The capable and talented film makers separated from their present organisations to have their own set ups. Actors no more stuck to any specific studio and ‘Free-lancing’ became the password. This also prompted the collapse of the studios. New Theatres, Bombay Talkies, Ranjit, Wadia and Prabhat not only split but also closed down, over a period, due to their own reasons.

Prabhat was no exception. It is popularly believed that when Shantaram left Prabhat, that was the point of its disintegration,but it is actually not so. Prabhat shifted from kolhapur to Poona in 1933 and that time all the Five partners had made a rule that in future, if any director/partner falls in love or has an affair with any of the staff members, he will have to leave Prabhat. ( This was initiated, because the Art Director Saheb mama Fattelal had married Gulab aka kamla Devi,an actress of Prabhat, in 1931.She is the same girl who bends backwards and blows the Tutari or Trombone, in Prabhat’s famous Logo) Under this rule, the first to go was Keshavrao Dhaiber, who fell in love with the heroine Nalini Tarkhad and married her in 1937. After his exit, in his place, Prabhat’s long time distributor Baburao Pai was appointed a Partner/Director.

V. Shantaram married Heroine Jaishree (Kamulkar) on 22-10-1941.He was continuously prodded to leave Prabhat. Finally he left and founded his own Rajkamal Kala Mandir. One more director V.Damle died in 1945. Prabhat started crumbling and after its last film Sant Janabai-1949, it stopped production. The studio and the properties were auctioned in 1952, and the company was officially closed on 13-10-1953.

Prabhat had made many films on Marathi saints like Sant Sakhu, Sant Tukaram, Sant Dnyaneshwar, Maya Machhindra, Dharmatma etc .Maharashtra had a rich tradition of Saints. During the period 13th Century to 17th Century, many saints guided the people of Maharashtra. Most saints of Maharashtra were from lower Castes, but they had followers in every section of the society, including Brahmins. There were saints like Namdev-Tailor, Tukaram-Vaishya, Pundalik-Varkari, Goroba-Potter, Janabai-Shudra, Kanhopatra- S.C., Sant Sena- Barber, Savata mali and Chokha Mela – Gardeners, Narhari-Goldsmith and many such more.

Almost every saint film brought in lot of profits to Prabhat. The most famous one was of course Sant Tukaram (Marathi)-1936, which brought money and fame. This film is taught in many Film courses all over the world even today.Its Hindi version came in 1948. No wonder the Prabhat chapter closed with a saint film- Sant Janabai-49.

The story of Janabai is intertwined with the story of Namdev, because Namdev had given her shelter in his home. So, Prabhat first wanted to make this film as a Sant Namdev film. Prabhat’s in house writer Shivram Vashikar wrote the story and Vasant painter was to direct the film. But the plan changed and film on Janabai’s name was decided. Now, G.D.Madgulkar, eminent writer and Poet of Marathi wrote the story. The director was also changed. Govind Ghanekar was the production chief in Prabhat. He was named as the director.Later, he directed and produced many famous and hit Marathi films in 50s and 60s. Earlier actor Ganesh Abhyankar aka Vivek was to become Namdev. In this film also he was retained as Namdev. This actor Vivek, in later years, became one of the most successful actors on Marathi screen. Films used to be sold on his name alone.

While shooting this film, there was a very touching but interesting incident. The last scene of the film Sant Janabai-49 was that Janabai is taken to the Gallows to be hanged on a false accusation of stealing gold ornaments of Lord Vitthal. The shooting was being done in a village near Kolhapur. The big procession of people was going with the handcuffed Janabai in the centre, chanting Vithal Vithal.The people also chanted and some were weeping and falling on her feet (for shooting purpose only). The villagers had gathered in huge numbers, to see the shooting.Many of them thought that this was all real. They too wept and fell on Janabai’s feet. The studio workers had a tough time to remove and restrain them during the shooting.

One name in the cast is that of Gauri. Her real name was Tanibai Dawari. In this film she played Namdev’s mother. She was with Prabhat since its inception and did small roles in silent films. She was totally illiterate and could not read or write. After the advent of the Talkie films, she continued doing small roles in Prabhat films. When film Sant Tukaram was being conceived, Shantaram started searching for an actress to do the role of Tukaram’s wife-Avali…who loved Tukaram but was sort of a shrew because she felt Vithoba bhakti was spoiling Tukaram. Suddenly Shantaram saw Gauri and he called her. Giving a copy of the script to her, he said,” you are selected to do the role of Avali. Now read the dialogues and be prepared.”

Gauri was stunned. She did not know how to react. She could not read. She was sure that now she will be exposed and removed from service, as Prabhat did not employ illiterate people. This was their rule for employment. She took the script and went out of the room. Music Director Keshavrao Bhole found her in a corner, weeping. When he enquired repeatedly, Gauri explained everything frankly. Bhole pacified her and said, ‘ Dont worry ‘. From that day onwards he taught Gauri reading and writing for 8 hours a day for 15 days. Being a sharp student Gauri picked it up very quickly, as it was a Do or Die status for her.

Her role in film Sant Tukaram was lauded by one and all. It was praised even in Venice festival. Prabhat gave her a special award also. Gauri continued with Prabhat till it was making films. Then she retired from films and settled in Poona, doing some household jobs for survival. Unfortunately the Panshet flood debacle in Poona in 1961, washed out everything she had. She returned to her hometown,Kagal,near Kolhapur. In 1964,a film on Tukaram ” Tuka zalase kalas” in Marathi was launched. Sulochana Latkar was to do the role of Tukaram’s wife, Avali. She wanted to take blessings from Gauri-the original Avali. Sulochana went to Kagal and took her blessings. She gave her a Sari and some money too. Soon after this, Gauri aka Tanibai Dawari died.

In spite of good direction, acting and good music by Sudhir Phadke, the film could not escape being the last stone on the samadhi of Prabhat and a Golden Chapter of Hindi cinema came to a close.

The Music Director Sudhir Phadke may not have been a notable composer in Hindi films,but he was a big gun in Marathi cinema. Sudhir Phadke ( July 25, 1919 – July 29, 2002) was an accomplished Marathi singer-composer. He was regarded as an icon of the Marathi film industry and Marathi Sugam Sangeet i.e. Bhavgeet (light music) for five decades. Apart from Marathi, Phadke sang and composed songs in several Hindi films as well. Phadke was affectionately known as Babuji (an honorary title given to respected gentlemen in India).

Sudhir Phadke was born in Kolhapur on July 25, 1919. His birth name was Ram Phadke, but he later changed his name to ‘Sudhir’ when he composed a song for HMV because he thought ‘Sudhir Phadke’ sounded more ‘weighty’. Phadke acquired his primary tutelage in vocal classical music from the late Vamanrao Padhye in Kolhapur. After beginning his career with HMV in 1941, he joined the Prabhat Film Company as music director in 1946. During his long career, he composed for many Marathi and Hindi films. He was also an immaculate playback singer. Phadke married his fellow singer Lalita Deulkar. Their son Shridhar Phadke (born 1951) is also a composer and singer.

Geet Ramayana, based on poet G D Madgulkar’s verses, is one of Phadke’s most popular works. The programme ran on All India Radio for a year, 1954-55. Stage performances of the program continue to draw huge crowds even today. Phadke set to music all 56 songs, and they were sung by different singers for radio (Manik Verma, Lata Mangeshkar, Phadke himself, Vasantrao Deshpande etc). All 56 songs were also recorded in Phadke’s own voice.
In last days of his life, Phadke was involved in producing a Hindi film on the life of the Indian freedom fighter Vinayak Damodar Savarkar. The movie Veer Savarkar was funded by public donations. Sudhir Phadke last sang and composed music for this movie.
Phadke was connected with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh for over 60 years. He was the main inspiration and founder member of India Heritage Foundation in the United States.

Sudhir Phadke gave music to 19 Hindi films from 1946 (Rukmini Swayamvar) to 1972 (Daraar). His famous film is Pehli Tarikh -54, in which he had composed the famous Kishore Kumar song- Din hai suhana aaj pehli tarikh hai. He also sang 14 songs in 9 Hindi films. A noteworthy fact about Sudhir Phadke is that during his peak period in Marathi films, he created a World Record. He teamed up with writer/poet G.D.Madgulkar (गदिमा , as he was known fondly in Maharashtra) and director Raja Paranjape. Together, as a team, they gave a total of 11 Hit films,in a row in 18 years- from 1948 to 1966 … a record for a Team.

The story of film Sant Janabai-49, adapted from aumamen.com is…

Jana, a little girl whose mother before dying told her to go to Pandharpur where she will be protected by Lord Vitthal, A merchant who is the father of Sant Namdev accidentally steps on Jana’s hand and asks for her forgiveness. He asks what she was doing in the temple alone, she tells him her story, being a good devotee of Vitthal he adopts her.

Little Namdev likes her from the instant he sees her and accepts her as his elder sister with joy. But the mother of Namdev wasn’t too happy with another person being in the family, but later she too melts to the love and simplicity of the little girl who would become a great saint as we know today.

Jana was assigned the work of washing the clothes by Namdev’s mother. Jana and Namdev hear a group of pilgrims singing in praise of Lord Vitthal and they start singing and dancing. Children in the group who are very thirsty run to Janabai to beg for water from her. “There are many wells in the village, go get your own water” says Namdev. “But we are outcastes, nobody gives us water” says the one of the pilgrims.

Janabai pours them water from her pot, the satisfied devotees bless her for giving them water to drink. She gets scolded and beaten by Namdev’s mother for her act of charity towards the outcastes, which was considered a terrible thing during those times.

Namdev being a very devotional man, always sings and dances and forgets the duties of an householder. Janabai works hard for the food of Namdev’s family (wife and two children). Janabai prays to Vitthal for the food, when Vitthal gives her food she only takes what she needed for a day or two.

Namdev had a big debt to be settled, but he was on a pilgrimage to North India. the wealthy man who had lent him money decides to take Namdev’s property into possession. Jana pleads with him and agrees that she would pay all the money back. Jana works night and day to gather the money she needed.

One night she was very tired and falls asleep while working, but when she wakes up she sees a blanket on her and also sees that the work has been finished. Next night she pretends to be sleeping so that she could catch the person who did it. As soon as she sleeps she sees Lord Vitthal appear and do her work for her.

She catches him while working, from then on Lord Vitthal helps her in her work, he sings for her. He fetches water for her and does many things around

One day Lord Vitthal feels very tired, seeing that Jana puts him to sleep. In the morning when he wakes up, he walks back to the temple with the blanket around his body, his ornament falls from his neck and falls on the floor of Janabai’s house.

In the morning when priests see the statue of Lord Vitthal they come to the conclusion that somebody must have stolen the ornament of Lord. They see a blanket nearby and assume it must belong to the thief. They start questioning everyone to find out to whom that belonged.

Janabai tells them that it belonged to her, priests search her house and when they find the ornament they accuse her of the theft, she tells them that the Lord was sleeping in her house yesterday and he must have left the ornament. People laugh at her, and thinking of her to be a liar, they decide to hang her to death.

They march her on streets, and just before the time to kill her, she prays to Lord Vitthal and he appears.

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15148

31st July – a day when Hindi Film Music lovers, world over, remember the legendary, Mohd. Rafi who left us this day in 1980. Its 39 years- hard to believe. Seems too recent, when the newspapers carried the news. Those were times when there was no flash news, breaking news or someone getting the news and forwarding on WhatsApp etc. At the most there used to be the evening edition of newspapers like Mid-day, Afternoon Despatch & Courier, and if I remember right there was a newspaper called Evening News and I don’t remember if the news broke out in the evening papers or the early morning papers. What I do remember is that it was monsoon and as is usual for the time of the year, there were rains in Mumbai and the roads of Bandra, where Rafi Saab lived and through which his funeral procession was going to pass, were flooded with his fans. The footage of the procession was recorded by Films Division of India and shown in the pre-movie news reels throughout India. Those were different times altogether and my intention is not to make anyone glum.

So, snapping out of the mood and getting on. Without fear of being labelled a ‘stuck record’ I will make it very clear (and I am sure I have done it a number of times) I am not partial to any singer be it Kishore Kumar or Rafi Saab or Mukesh or Manna Dey or Mahendra Kapoor. Specially in the era when they were ruling the airwaves with their “hai preet jahaan ki reet sada”; “zindagi kaisi hai paheli haayre”; “main pal do pal ka shaayar hoon”; “kya hua tera vaada”; or “bachchna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya” and all the other thousands of songs that these singers have sung between them. I used to be as much in love with “abhi toh haat mein jaam hai toba kitna kaam hai” as with “nadiya se dariya, dariya se sagar, sagar se gehra jaam”. I used to sing along with “chal mere bhai tere haat jod ta hoon” and “karam kiye jaa phal ki ichcha mat kar ae insaan”. And my love for the songs by these singers was not limited to the songs of the 70s but I enjoyed “deewana mastana hua dil” alongwith ‘hum hain raahi pyar ke humse kuch na boliye” and “kisiki muskurahaton pe ho nisaar” etc. etc. etc… I am sure I have proved the point that I was not a partial to any singer and was more concerned about the songs. One reason for this could be that I didn’t know the difference of one from the other till much later in life. I might have started finding differences when we got news of the sad demise of Mukesh when he was on tour in the USA and the papers listed out his popular songs.

Whenever I sit to write about the singers mentioned above, I find that all their most popular songs are already posted. So is the case with songs of Mohd. Rafi. The stats page of our blog gives the possible number of Rafi songs as 4845 of which we have posted 2960 giving us 1885 songs to choose from. And I suppose these are numbers of his Bollywood songs and doesn’t include his recordings in other Indian or international languages song like Sinhalese, Arabic, Farsi, Dutch, Creole etc. I tried to find statistics of his number of songs with his contemporary singers and found that he had maximum duets with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar (in that order) – and I always used to think that the Lata- Rafi combo would have had more songs. How wrong we can be!!!!

This time too I had zeroed in on two popular (in their time) songs to go with this post. And then I saw a link on facebook in one of the music lovers’ group, to a song by Sudhir Phadke that was sung by Mohd. Rafi and from a rather recent movie- if 1972 can be called recent. The name “Daraar” written as “darar” in some places didn’t ring a bell in my head. I tried the usual reference sources at my disposal- Wikipedia and imdb. I got very sketchy information. The movie was a January 1972 release. It was directed by Ved Rahi and Mahendra Dehlvi and Kulwant Jani were the lyricist. The starcast had the not so famous Baldev Khosa, Lata Arora, Radharani, Birbal etc. Such a non-descript movie had a lively song. It was sung by Jaywant Kulkarni and Mohd. Rafi. How I wish there was a video to see who was lip syncing this.

here is the song.


Song-Ab ham bhi banenge dulha (Daraar)(1972) Singers-Rafi, Jaywant Kulkarni, Lyrics-Kulwant Jaani, MD-Sudhir Phadke
Chorus

Lyrics

o ho
o ho

hadipa
hadipa

ab hum bhi banenge dulha
apna bhi jalega choolha
ab hum bhi banenge dulha
apna bhi jalega choolha
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha aa aa
haaye haaye
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha
ni bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha

hoye hoye hoye hoye

aaj kismat ki maina
aaho
mere kaanon mein boli
oho
mere ghar bhi aayegi
oho
ek bulbul ki doli
jiski soorat ko ab tak haan
dil ke sheeshe mein dekha hai
jiske sundar mukhde ko haan
maine sapnon mein chooma hai
gulaabon ki wo daali
saru se kad waali
wahi toh mere ghar mein aayegi ee ee
haaye haaye haaye
bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha
ni bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha

hoye

usey doli se uthha ke
saji sej pe bithha ke
thoda ghunghta hata ke
ho gora ang ang dekhoonga haay haay
mujhe saath leke jaana
tera yaar hoon puraana
tera hansna hansaana
ho main bhi sang sang dekhoonga hoye hooye

dekhkar uska jalwa haan
mar na jaaye tu gash khaa ke
toot jaate hain taare haan
uski nazron se takraa ke
wo jiski jawaani chenab ki rawaani
wahi to mere ghar mein aayegi ee ee ee
hoye hoye
te bhaabhi zara nach ke dikha

kab daras milega mohan ka
kab daras milega mohan ka
kab mohan par bali jaaungi
ghanshyaam teri ban jaaungi
main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya
main ban ki bholi gwaalaniya

Mohammed Rafi – Duets – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘इ’ – इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो

 

मेरी आवाज़ के पीछे चले आओ
चले आओ
चले आओ॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, only if it were possible in this physical world. The only recourse is to listen to the recordings. That charisma is going to remain alive, till the time there is music on this earth. The magic of Rafi Sb’s voice will never cease.

Moving ahead with the next instalment of this series. Picking up next letter ‘इ’, I bring to the blog this wonderful favourite song, which has become a rarity these days. I could not find this song online. Another collector in his own channel has, with deliberation, posted a very short clip of this song. I can see comments from other listeners, requesting for posting the complete song. But of course, some people, you know. . .

The song is from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’ from 1962. The film is produced under the banner of Roopvani Films and is directed by Vasant Painter. The cast of actors includes Mahipal, Indira, Heeralal, Ratnamala, Pal Sharma, SK Shukla, Baby Shobha, Kalpana, Mohan Choti, Arun, and Polson amongst others.

Only four songs are listed for this film. The songs are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music direction is by Sudhir Phadke.

In this song, the voice accompanying Rafi Sb’s, is of Asha Bhosle. The song has such an endearing flow, and when it comes to end after two antaraas, it seems almost abrupt. It builds into such a comfortable listen that, when it ends, the feeling it leaves behind is – ‘it ended too soon, there should be more’. Simple words, simple melody, rendered with deliberate softness and slowness. What a lovely song which is full of sadness of separation. Very touching.

Song – Is Jag Mein Kahin Bhi Rahiyo (Pyaar Ki Jeet) (1962) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Qamar Jalaalabaadi, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

ye lahu nahin hai pag mein
aasha ka lahu behta hai
tum sun jo sako to sun lo
beh beh ke tumhen kehta hai
aasha ko tod na jaiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .

is lahu ko ik din sajni
sindoor banana hoga
teri maang sajaani hogi
doli mein bithaana hoga
us din ki khoj mein rahiyo. . oo. . oo. .
meri preet bhool na jaiyo
is jag mein kahin bhi rahiyo
meri preet bhool na jaiyo

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

ये लहू नहीं है पग में
आशा का लहू बहता है
तुम सुन जो सको तो सुन लो
बह बह के तुम्हें कहता है
आशा को तोड़ ना जइयो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं भी रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰

इस लहू को इक दिन सजनी
सिंदूर बनाना होगा
तेरी मांग सजानी होगी
डोली में बिठाना होगा
उस दिन की खोज में रहियो॰॰ ओ॰॰ ओ॰॰
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो
इस जग में कहीं  भी रहियो
मेरी प्रीत भूल ना जइयो

Lyrics

maiyya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo
maiyya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo
maakhan hai hi kahaan gokul mein
jo main leun khaaye
poochh tu unse jaa ke maiya
nit dho kar le jaayen
o o
paawan go ras se ang dhulte
sunke main dukh paau
sun ke dukh paayo
o o
main nahin maakhan khaayo
maiyya mori
main nahin maakhan khaayo

neer piye panchhi ke maiya
nadiya sookh na paaye ae ae
par vyaakul ho pyaas se panchhi
tat pe shor machaayen
o o
aag lagi hai jal pe maahi
dekh ke main bharmaayo
dekh ke bharmaayo o o
main nahin maakhan khaayo
maiya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo

hans ko roop liyo kaaga ne
maakhan moti khaaye
chanchal mohini maaya sabko
pag pag rahi nachaaye
ho o
paayal ki jhankaar mein maiya
baal vilaap chhupaayo
vilaap chhupaayo o o
main nahin maakhan khaayo
maiyya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo
