(Shailendra) Do Bigha Zamin (1953)

This was the first film as a producer for Bimal Roy who also directed the movie. The movie is considered to be a milestone in Indian Cinema history. Roy was greatly influenced by the Italian neo realism movement, more specifically by the work of the great Italian director Vittorio De Sica. Roy saw De Sica’s acclaimed “The Bicycle Thief (1949)” at the First International Festival held in Mumbai and was awe struck by its graphic realism. This eventually led him to produce “Do Bigha Zamin”. The impact of the movie was unexpected. It paved the way to parallel cinema in India.

Bimaly Roy (see the attached picture below) who hailed from a well to do family started out as an assistant cameraman in 1929, when he was barely 20 years old. One of the films he worked on was P.C. Barua’s classic “Devdas (1935)”. Later on he became a full cameraman. He edited few films, one notable being history making “Mahal (1949)”. He also wrote screenplays for few films. He directed several Bengali films before turning to Hindi. He also made few notable documentaries. As a producer he made 15 films.

Roy was showered with numerous awards throughout his professional career. He was the recipient of 11 Filmfare Awards (in various categories), six National Film Awards, and the International Prize of the Cannes Film Festival for the film “Do Bigha Zamin”.

The story of the film was written by Salil Chowdhury (see the picture below). Before this Chowdhury had only one movie to his credit. He gave music to and wrote lyrics for a Bengali film in 1951, “Barjatri”. When Roy asked Salilda to provide music for the film, he readily agreed. This was Salil Chowdhury’s first Hindi film.

Hrishikesh Mukherjee (see the picture below) also made his debut in 1953. He was the editor for both Hindi films Roy directed in 1953, “Zamin” and “Parineeta”. Besides, Hrishida also wrote the screenplay of “Zamin” and was one of the co-directors of the film.

Balraj Sahni, who gave one of the memorable performances of his career, was not an original choice of Roy. He considered other actors but after seeing the performance of Sahni in “Hum Log (1951)”, Bimalda offered him the role. Sahni practiced pulling a rickshaw by studying from Calcutta rickshaw pullers. He used to have his son and daughter as passengers in the rickshaw and pull them on the streets.

Nirupa Roy wore rags to provide a rustic look for her role. She bought these in Mumbai’s Chor Bazaar.

Meena Kumari appeared a guest in the film. She was working on “Parineeta” and heard Roy who also was directing “Parineeta” talk about “Zamin” on the sets. She pleaded with Roy to be part of the movie and Roy gave her a guest role.

At the inaugural Filmfare Awards, “Zamin” was chosen as the Best Picture and Roy was adjudged as the Best director.

Of the may well deserved accolades Bimalda received for his outstanding film, many think one by Raj Kapoor stood out. After seeing the movie Raj was so impressed with it that he told Roy that “How I wish I had made this film!”

There are only a few songs in this film. I am uploading these below…

(Shakeel) Aan (1952)

This is another winner from early 50's. "Aan" was made on a grand scale by Mehboob Khan Saab. It was one of those first full length Technicolor movies. For technical as well as financial reasons, it was shot in 16mm first, per one of our fellow members, Vijay. Later it was blown up to 35mm. This technique apparently saved the producer a bundle of money.

Dilip Saab, who played one tragic role after another until this movie, in a refreshingly welcome departure plays a lighter role. A great actor he is, this transformation from tragedy to comedy he does so effortlessly. He was absolutely entertaining as the swashbuckling hero.

In a book on Mehboob Saab, its author tells the fierce competition Mehboob Saab felt from young Raj Kapoor, the filmmaker. Remember that another great 1952 movie, “Awara"? The dream sequence picturized in that movie is still used as a yardstick even today for similar sequences in movies. For Mehboob Saab also, in a sense bigger was better. "Aan" was one of his ways of displaying pomp and showing grandeur.

Nargis was originally cast to play the leading lady in "Aan." But with Nargis firmly entrenched in Raj Kapoor's camp, she was not available. So instead of waiting for her becoming free to act in his movie, Mehboob Saab went looking for a new leading lady instead. He didn't need to go too far. He elected Nadira, his friend's daughter, to be the leading lady.

"Aan" was a runaway hit. Nadira however, in her subsequent outings as an actress, never enjoyed the same success as she did for "Aan." She did make an occasional good movie, one notable being "Julie" that fetched her Best Support Actress award from Filmfare. Incidentally, Nadira who hailed from a rich background was the first Bombay film personality to own a Rolls Royce automobile.

I am uploading songs and some extras in three back-to-back posts. The first post contains all songs from the film from an original soundtrack album. The second post contains an unreleased song of Rafi Saab and several music clips. The third post contains some of the longer versions of the songs. These songs are the same as those in the first post but have extra music either before the start of the song or after the song or sometimes both.

Here are the songs in the first post…

(Anand Bakshi) Razia Sultana (1961)

This film boasts probably the best compositions of the music director Lachhiramji. Song after song "Razia Sultana" consists of several unforgettable ones. It is too bad that the movie is one of those very forgettable one. I am uploading songs from this film in two back-to-back posts. Here is the first set...
