Nadiya Ke Paar (1949)

Nadiya Ke Paar (Hindi: नदिया के पार) is a 1949 (or is it 1948?) Hindi film produced by Filmistan Studios and directed by Kishore Sahu (remember him? he played Dev Anand’s father in the 1972 film Hare Rama Hare Krishna). The film starred Dilip Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, S L Puri, Maya Bannerjee, David, Tiwari and Ranibala. Music was directed by C Ramchandra (who preferred the name Chitalkar when he sang). The film must not be confused with Rajshri Production’s 1982 film of the same name, starring Sachin and Sadhna Singh. Both films, however, had one thing in common. They both had a strong Bhojpuri storyline, rustic Bhojpuri dialogues and great songs.

Lost melodies part 5

The old hindi film song stands like a monument on the shore weathered by the winds of time and the gentle caresses of the waves, to be admired across generations. And there are many such monuments along an endless musical shoreline built by a legion of architects, engineers and craftsmen who valiantly worked with their age old tools creating priceless works of art each unique in shape, form and style to create a rich heritage of that golden era of the music.

Lost melodies part 4

In the early days of Indian film industry, actors mostly recorded the songs they were shown singing on the screen. However in the 1940s playback singers began to be increasingly used. This was not immediately accepted. Part of the audience’s enjoyment of early sound films came from their knowledge that the actor on the screen was actually singing the songs they heard. When playback singing first became common, the sudden disjuncture between the voice of the singer and the body of the actor was a source of ‘discomfort’ for audiences. Particularly unnerving was the use of one singer’s voice for many different actors. While playback singing was seen by some at the time as unauthentic, others sensed in it the possibility for greater creativity and entertainment.
