Jhoola (1941)

Jhoola (Hindi: झूला) is a 1941 Hindi film directed by Gyan Mukherjee. The film starred Ashok Kumar, Leela Chitnis, Shah Nawaz, Aruna Devi, Mumtaz Ali, Rajkumari, Minoo Cooper and V H Desai. Those were early days of film making in India and the concept of playback singing was not completely accepted by the film fraternity and Indian audience. An actor who could also sing was a big plus those days.

Two step brothers Ramesh (Ashok Kumar) and Mahesh (Shah Nawaz) have something common. While Ramesh works as a postman and Mahesh takes over his father’s estate, both fall in love with the same girl Geeta (Leela Chitins). But Mahesh has promised to marry Kamala earlier and she plans to ruin his marriage with Geeta. Whom he marries forms the crux of the storyline.

    I am afraid the female voice in the duet “Ek Baat Batao Hamen Gori” is of Leela Chitnis herself. Perhaps, it was a typographical mistake. She has sung all her songs in other Bombay Talkies movies like Bandhan and Kangan as well. Rehmat Bano’s voice was restricted to theatrical scenes in all Bombay Talkies movies alongwith male voices which were played-back for Mumtaz Ali on the stage.

    Good to hear such very very old songs from my younger days. This comment is from an old (or young?) man of 74 years. Thank you for the old memories.
