10/1/2013

Prephase:
A CD was presented to me by my Sister and Brother-in-Law which contained about 800 songs, I had copied in my mobile and from some months these songs had became part of my life, especially I here Master Chandur daily. One of the song “ Wafaia Ja Putla Wafadar Sindhi, Hu Hara Fanna Me Ahin Hoshiyar Sindhi” In this song Master Chander narrated the name of Gope Kamlani, comedian actor in Hindi Film industry for which I was not knowning. One one day I along with my wife Asha attended a program in Sindhology Adipur in which music on voilen was performed by Master Kanayalal Lalwani, he had worked along with many music director and it was also told that his children are also working for music in film industry. These facts were unknown to me and also to many Sindhis. Most often while watching television ,my wife Asha, son Yash and daughter Sonam discussed about who is sindhi artist in film and television industry. These event brought a thought in my mind to list the Sindhis who are working in film industry, hence I started searching on web. I hoped that I could collect more than 100 names but this figure reached more than 350 numbers which are listed and detailed in this collection. Presumption of sindhi is based on their surname and information on the internet , in some cases if may be wrong for which I apologise. My father during his younger age was very fond of movies while after retirement he became strongly religious, I dedicate this collection to my late father Shri Gobindram Ramchandani.

Master Chander
Singer/ Music director/ Poet

Master Chander

Master Chander is Legend of Sindhi Music. He was first to sing Kalams and songs related to love in Sindhi Language. Master Chander was born in Tharushah on 7-12-1907. His songs were recorded by HMV records. There must be thousands of songs sung by Master Chander, but hardly 400 songs information is available. He could very easily form the lyrics of the songs and perform a song on that in no time. That is one of the reason, they were not officially recorded and available publicaly. Master Chander had a passion for music from his childhood. Born in a Zamindar family, where singing was considered a ‘taboo’. Master Chander faced great odds in acquiring rightful place in the field of music in Sind. He was not only the most popular singer of HMV, but also a legendary figure, who brought new singing wave in Sind. He could truly be called a ‘melody’ that touched the very pulse of man who, was love lorn, distressed & disappointed. His renderings kept the audience spellbound for hours. One of his rendering ‘Rutha Ee Rahan, Para Hujen Hayati’ (Let them live longeven when they are not on good terms)was most popular. He had the knack of keeping his audience, spell bound for hours. Life History Before Partition Sangeet Acharya Master Chander, also known as the Legend of Sind was born on December 7, 1907 in the town of Tharushah, Sind. He hailed from a merchant and land owner family. Master Chander was indeed a only child born to his parents from ( Matai Khandan) Zamindar Mr Assandas & Mrs Rami Bai Damwani. He changed his surname to Damwani as his Great Grandfather was Zamindar Damo Mal Matai and Master Chander was the seventh Peedhi(Generation) of the family. As a child, Master Chander was very fond of music, however, since music was looked down upon in those days, he studied music secret. But, he was encouraged to study music by his uncle, who also bought him his first harmonium from Calcutta. One day, Bhagat Kanwar Ram, a great singer himself, saw Master Chander perform and predicted that he would become a great singer in the future. He said that Chander will shine like the moon. It's said when Master Chander

performed that people would throw money, gold and other valuables on stage while he performed. Master Chander, recorded his first song and hit "Sunhina Arza Ahe" in 1932. This song became a phenomenon on the radio- the song was unlike any heard in the early days of radio. It was a mix of classical music and a style his own, of what now we can categorize as an early rendition of Rap and R&B. After his first hit, there was no looking back. His career spanned 50 years. Like many famous singers of today, who venture into movies, so did Master Chander in the late 1930s. He worked in films including "Dilaram" and "Maut Ka Toofan", in which he played the hero. He was also cast for "Achoot Kanya" with Devika Rani but was later replaced by Ashok Kumar. Sadly, prior to production of this movie, two of his five sons passed away within months of each other. He was needed at home and thus ended the movie career of Master Chander. But, Master Chander did record seven songs for "Achoot Kanya". Master Chander was not only a singer and actor but also a poet and music director, he provided music for his most popular songs. Among his contemporaries were many other singers such as Jeevni Bhai, Allah Rakhi, Bhagat Motan, Bhagat Kanwer Ram, Jaro Bhagat, and Sawami Kundan, however, Chander always had his own style and was ahead of the game. Master Chander was more so famous among the younger generations of that time- you can say his fan following and musical hits reached the heights of Elvis Presley and the Beatles. His songs "Rutha Ee Rahan Perr Hujain Hayati", "Dil Ahey Hathan Mein", "Rana Vahju Na Ute" and "Kabootar Kabootar" as well as many other songs were very popular not only in Sindh, but all over the world.

During and Post Partition

Master Chander with Family during foreign trip in 1968 One of the most endearing songs of Master Chander was "Nandri Nandri Ahiyan"- a story of an eight (8) year old girl, her servant, Pirla and a thief. It was sung in a story telling style. The song was recognized by Prime Minister Jawaherlal Nehru in the early 1950s. Beside his own poetry, Chander sang songs written by the great poet Prasram Zia. Master Chander's music was copied by the music directors of Bollywood. Master Chander was the only singer in the entire history of HMV music who was paid 7% of royalties, others were paid 5%. In 1947, during the partition of India, Master Chander and the majority of Sindhis were forced to leave their homes and properties in Sind. He narrowly escaped his own death during those tumultuous days, having sent his family- his pregnant wife, Heti, mother, three sons and three daughters, as well as extended family members ahead in a ship to Bombay, India. Seeing the plight of his people and missing his homeland, he began to write and sing songs about giving confidence to the displaced Sindhis in India, some of the notable songs during this period were "Mitha Abana" from the movie Abana with well known Sindhi actors and actress, "Kismat Kai Judai" and "Hoshiyar Sindhi". After the partition, living in Bombay with his growing family, he continued to record music and sing in films. He also vocally trained his sons Gope

and Mahesh Chander. Gope Chander, lives in New York and is a well known singer throughout the United States. Mahesh Chander is also a famous singer, known as the "Man with the Velvet Voice", he is a music director, who has won many awards, including being recognized for composing the poetry of Prime Minister, Atal Bihari Vajpayee. In 1955, Master Chander was given the rare opportunity to give a concert in Sind, and he did so along with his son Gope Chander. There they were warmly welcomed by the people of Sind and Pakistan. After his return to India, he never visited Sind again, but gave concerts all over the world during the 1960s and early 1970s. In 1984, the music stopped and Master Chander left behind a lifetime of music, songs and his family to become "The Legend of Sind". Sada hayat Master Chander In the mid-1990s, in honor of Master Chander, his family created the Master Chander Sangeet Academy in New York, USA and Bombay, India. Every year in either December or January, a concert in the memory and birth of Master Chander is held in New York, Bombay, Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmadabad and Ulhasnagar. The music continues with Master Chander's sons- Gope Chander and Mahesh Chander, grandchildren- Arti Raj Chander, Harish Chander and Anil Chander. The music will forever continue with future generations from his family and beyond. As a Writer Apart from being great singer, musician & poet, Master Chander was also great Author who wrote these books during his lifetime. 1.

C Arjun
Music composer

I have not forgotten the Forgotten Composers, Unforgettable Melodies.It so happens that in a unique coincidence birth anniversaries of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, and death anniversaries of Mohammad Rafi, Mukesh and Kishore Kumar falls in a narrow band of two and a half months between July 31 to October 13. They are the biggest icons of playback singing in the Golden Era, and I did not want to miss these special occasions to offer my tributes. I am back with C Arjun, who should rank among the top in this series not only alphabetically but because of his timeless creations. It was characteristic of the period that in a crowded field of many highly talented

composers, some were consigned to B or C grade films. C Arjun was one of them. But his music towers over his films. Only one song of his – Paas baitho tabiyat bahal jayegi sung by Rafi is enough to give him immortality. Many of this blog’s readers have mentioned his name and this song. Much later his C grade film Jai Santoshi Maa,released in the year of the mighty Sholay and Deewar, established itself as one of the highest grossing films ever on the strength of his music. Originally a Sindhi, he was born on September 1, 1933. After partition his family settled in Baroda. He inherited his musical talent from his father who was a singer. He became assistant to another Sindhi music director Bulo C Rani. He started his career with composing for a Sindhi film Abana. His first Hindi film was Road no 303 (1960). Off and on he got films under nondescript banners with B/C grade cast. That he created memorable music nevertheless did not do much to change his fortunes. His teaming with the lyricist Jaan Nisar Akhtar would rank at par with the best of Sahir Ludhiyanvi’s composed by SD Burman or Roshan. He also composed a number of non film songs. He died at a relatively young age of 59 of heart attack he suffered at a recording studio. (Biographical information based on Pankaj Raag’s ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’). Here are his all-time great songs, which every music lover knows though many may not be aware that they are C Arjun’s compositions. 1. Paas baitho tabiyat bahal jayegi by Rafi from Punrmilan (1964), lyrics Indivar Any mention of C Arjun has to start with this song. It is easily among Rafi’s all time greats. KR Vaishampayan, a regular follower of this blog, in one of his comments, drew attention to an interesting story behind this song told to him by his friend Dr Satyavir Yadav, who heard it on Binaca Geetmala hosted by Ameen Sayani. Once C Arjun and and Indivar were returning home from studio by a BEST bus, when a pretty young girl boarded the bus and stood beside their seat. Indivar looked at her repeatedly and asked C Arjun to leave his seat to let her sit beside him, and thus this song was born. Incredibly this song is picturised on Jagdeep who

was in the lead role opposite Ameeta, who had a brief period of glory with some super hit films in the late 50s and early 60s such as Tum Sa Nahi Dekha and Goonj Uthi Shenai.

In the film institute he had impressed many and made his acting break as a hero in 1967 with a Gujrati movie opposite budding actress Waheeda (not Waheeda Rahman; the Hindi actress). He acted in four other movies, mainly as actor or supporting actor in Gujrati

from 1967 to 1969. He did not get much offers from Hindi film industry between 1967-69. His old advisor, Hrishikesh Mukherjee then gave him role of supporting actor in the film Satyakam in 1969. He got noticed then in the film Mere Apne. It was from 1971 that he started getting more offers as the main comedian in films or as the close friend of the lead actor. Directors like Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Atma Ram, Gulzar repeatedly cast him in the period 1971-1974 and his work got noticed through these films. These roles he did from 1971-1974 set the tone for a number of supporting and comic roles in his career and in 70's his demand was at its peak as he appeared in 101 films from 1970-1979 and had effective roles in them. Rajesh Khanna and Asrani though they first met only on sets of Bawarchi, became close friends after Namak Haraam, after which for the role of comedian Rajesh Khanna insisted the producers and directors to make Asrani part of his films. Asrani worked in 25 films with Rajesh Khanna from 1972-1991 from Bawarchi(1972) to Ghar Parivaar(1991).

Unlike his roles in 1970 -84 which were pivotal to the plot, most of his roles from 1985-1993 were very minor mainly because the concept of a comedian was getting phased out and heroes preferred to do their own comedy and action films were ruling the roost in the period 1985-1994. In 80's his memorable performances were in Hamari Bahu Alka, Ek Hi Bhool, Yeh Kaisa Insaf, Kaamchor, Agar Tum Na Hote, Asha Jyoti, Maqsad, Main Intequam Loonga, Love 86, Biwi Ho To Aisi.

From 1988 to 1993, he was a director for the Film Institute in Pune. It was only from 1985-1994 that his screen space in the Hindi films were for less duration. In 90's he did only 73 Hindi movies due to lack of good scope for him to perform. Muqabla (1993) saw him in a serious role after long time. Simultaneously he kept working in Gujrathi films in 70's, 80's as lead hero and achieved success as the lead protagonist in Amdavad No Rikshawalo, Saat Qaidi, Sansar Chakra, Pankhi No Malo, Jugal Jodi, Maa Baap, Chel Chabilo Gujarati. From 90's he played as comedian or supporting actor in Gujrathi films like Mota Ghar Ni Vahu, Piyu Gayo Pardesh, Baap Dhamal Dikhra. D.Rama Naidu gave him a pivotal role to Asrani in Taqdeerwala in 1995 and once again comedy movies were being made from thereon .

SANGEETA BIJLANI
Actor

This model turned actress did not have much luck with movies. She was a Miss India and a very successful model. Some of her popular ads were that of Ponds soap and Nirma which became famous because of her indomitable presence. But her films came to be known as damp squibs which were nowhere in comparison with her successful commercials. Sangeeta Bijlani’s debut movie was ‘Hathyar’ (1989) opposite Dharmendra. Here was a mad scramble to have a good look at this beautiful actress who many thought had the capacity of dethroning many reigning queens of that time. But the films that followed were not good enough and she was remembered as only the good model that she was. Some of her other films are ‘Jurm’, ‘Shivram’, ‘Yodha’, ‘Tahqeeqat’, ‘Yugandhar’ and ‘Nirbhay’. Her co-stars mostly were Vinod Khanna, Jeetendra, Sunny Deol and Mithun Chakraborty. She also had a serial ‘Chandni’ to her credit but it did not bring out the acting talent in her. Now married to the ex-Indian cricket captain, Mohammed Azharuddin, Sangeeta Bijlani leads a happy life of an ideal housewife.

Shweta keswani
Actor

An uncompromising professional who reinvents herself with each role, Sweta Keswani represents a breed of actor seldom seen in Indian cinema and television. With Films, Television programs, and Commercials watched worldwide, Sweta has become a household name both inside and outside India. Distinguishing herself in the realm of television with her stereotype shattering performances in Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki and Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand, Sweta displayed her unique ability to add depth and shades of grey to roles broadly labeled 'positive' and 'negative.' Her performances gained her critical acclaim leading many to notice that she, in fact, transformed the public's perception of such characters and, in so doing, to a degree revitalized Indian television. Sweta attributes much of her success to her ability to underplay emotions and turn away from the reliance many female Indian actors have on over-the-top antics, makeup and dress- relying instead on subtle and natural gestures, acting in its truest sense. Seldom does Television notoriety translate into box-office success; nevertheless Sweta has proven herself something of an exception. From a critically acclaimed performance in the Hindi film Love In Nepal to the eagerly awaited release of the English Film The Memsahib, Sweta has shown exceptional ability to master the requirements of both Indian as well as Western Cinema. Currently Sweta's ambitions lie in whatever roles allow her the ability to grow as an artist, whether that be in film, on television, or on stage.

Preeti Butani
Actor

Aspiring to reach the top: Actress Preeti Butani. South Film Industry has gained more popularity than Indian films in todays' times. "On coming to Mumbai, I got an opportunity to work in two short films with Tanuja Chandra. Working with her is no less than working in a learning institution. I got to learn a lot over there. During that time, I also did some ad films. One of them was an ad film for Nitish Builder. Later I also learn Kathak from Sitara Devi's daughter Jayanti Mala." Preeti Butani got true recognition on the big screen only after she was cast against Sharad Kapoor in the film "Jani Dushman". There was a big cast in the film, but her bold appearance and her outstanding performance made her gain tremendous recognition and applaud. Today's scenario is such that Preeti is getting many film offers and she is absolutely occupied in her acting career. Preeti has also got an opportunity to work with Rajpal Yadav in a film name "Ladies Tailor". In this she played a character named Flora. She confirmed, "After doing a number of films in Bollywood, I started getting offers from the South as well. She has done two Tamil films named 'Idu Kadal Varun Paruvam' that is directed by Kasturi Raja and the other film is with the South Super Star Arjun and the film was 'Mard Walav'. Apart from this, I am also doing two films in Kannad. "I am getting many film offers from the South today and I am accepting most of them, but that doesn't mean that I will not do Hindi films. I have recently done a Hindi film made for kids named 'King No.1'. I am also doing K Sara Production film 'Ek- the power of one'. I am doing another film with Neeraj Pathak and Girish Mishra. But yes in today's date I am doing more films in South than in Bollywood. " Preeti since you are a Punjabi, will you also do films in punjabi?, "I have never thought about it as I have not got any offer for doing a punjabi film. Given an opportunity I don't mind doing a film in my mother tongue. I am not biased to work in any language. Today apart from Hindi, I have done films in Tamil, Telegu, Kannad, Malayalam, etc. " Preeti reveals that, "Language is not at all a brarrier in the acting field. Your acting ability and talent is given more preference than the language. This is the only reason that I have been able to perform in so many languages. Though I am from the North, my knowledge in difference languages and my grasping for different languages is good making it easy for me to perform. " We have heard about the negativities one faces to grow in the film industry. Have you gone through any such troubles, " I have been fortunate enough to get associated with good people in the industry. I strongly believe that if you are good, then good happens to you always. I

have thoroughly enjoyed my career in the industry so far and I am sure that I shall enjoy the entire tenure in it.'

Occupation Film Director, Screenwriter, Film Editor, Theatre Director,Photographer, Painter Pankaj Advani (August 1, 1965 – November 11, 2010) was an Indian Film Director, Film Editor, Screenplay Writer, Photographer, Theater Director, and Painter, most known as co-writer of Shah Rukh Khan starrer, Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa (1993) and director of Hindi dark comedy, Sankat City (2009). Early life and education

Pankaj was born in Lucknow and grew up in the small town of Veraval in the Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. Even as a young boy he was drawn to the magical world of cinema and as a first step wrote, acted, and directed for his school plays. He obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in painting from the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda . At the Faculty of Fine Arts, he specialized in photography and built up a portfolio of photographs. While in Baroda he participated in playwright and film-maker, Habib Tanvir's workshop. He wrote and directed black comedies under his supervision (‘Andher Nagari’ and others) that participated in college festivals. He then went on to do his Diploma in Editing at the Film and Television Institute of India-Pune, receiving a merit scholarship for his academic excellence. Career After graduating from FTII-Pune, Pankaj returned to Baroda and put up a theatrical production of his black comedy 'Kataria Gul Hui Gawa'. Pankaj's next attempt was a short film 'Highway’ (19-minute video film shot in Baroda about a woman who asks for a lift from a stranger in a car on a deserted highway) which has participated in the South Asian Short Film Festival in Colombo and also the International Short and Independent Film Festival-Dhaka. Pankaj was the co-writer of Kundan Shah’s 1993 Shahrukh Khan-Suchitra Krishnamurthy starrer Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa which went on to bag the Filmfare Critics Award for Best Movie. Also a script for an unreleased film Loveria starring Saif Ali Khan and Karisma Kapoor was written during this period. His first big break in films came when he won a script competition held by Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI) for his film ‘Sunday’. He shot the film in his home town in Saurashtra, Gujarat. ‘Sunday’ won the National Film Award for the Best Short Fiction Film (Director and Producer CSFI) in 1994 at the 41st National Film Festival.[5] This film also won the National Award for the Best Music Director. It was shown in the Indian Panorama Section of the 25th International Film Festival of India, Calcutta; the Asian Panorama section of 8th International Children's Film Festival, Udaipur [6] and has also

participated in various other festivals including Cairo International Children's Film Festival and 11TH Annual Chicago International Children's Film Festival.[7] The same year Pankaj also won an award for his script 'Shadow Boxer' at NFDC but he was unable to get the film into production. Pankaj faced many hurdles in garnering funds for his unconventional films but continued to work even with low budgets. He forayed into TV when Shashanka Ghosh, the then head of Channel [V], who, impressed with his film ‘Sunday’ and ‘quirky’ ideas created a tiny space for him in the channel for experimentation, starting off with the promo - the dark 'Anarkali Petticoat Show' which got a special mention at the Promax Awards and subsequent shows like Toofan TV and Bheja Fry. His long association with Channel [V] provided him with a platform to showcase his creative ideas albeit on very low budgets. In 2000 Pankaj received a ‘13 lakhs - 13 days no-holds barred on creative aspect’ offer from Digital Talkies which he grabbed and gave birth to the now iconoclastic, underground, cult classic Urf Professor. This black comedy got the Best Film Award at the International Digital Film Festival India and, best editing at KaraFilm Fest. (Pakistan). Also screened at Dahlonega Film Festival; Philippines Digital Film; and participated in Inscreen International Film Festival- July 2006. With support of Mr. Shekhar Kapur (guest of honor at International Digital Film Festival of India); Pankaj, Roger Savage (Sound Engineer - Moulin Rouge), and Jill Billcock (Editor - Moulin Rouge) collaborated at 'Sound Firm' - Australia to make a version more suited for an English speaking audience, however the effort came to a naught. This film could not get certification from the Censor Board in India for its explicit content. Pankaj’s only film to be released commercially in theatres was, his Sankat City presented by Moser-Baer in July 2009. Bollywood too gave its approval and this poorly publicized film got due credit with nominations in half-adozen categories coming its way at the Nokia 16th Star Screen Awards 2010, Max Stardust Awards 2010, and 55th Filmfare Awards.

Mangharam Harwani
Producer Film- Pyar Kare Dis ( Sindhi) About 25 years ago Mangharam Harwani, founder of the $7-billion Denmarkbased Sunico group saw a Sindhi musical programme on a VHS cassette (it was the age of VHS!) and the memory of that programme stayed with him as he built his business over the years. Financial success only sharpened that memory and Harwani yearned to do something so as to revive the fading culture of his community in some way. Films, he thought, were what lured the youth and so he decided to produce a Sindhi film – Pyar Kare Dis: Feel The Power of Love in 2007. The budget was modest, around Rs 1 crore, but the goal was to keep talent and the language alive. "I think the Sindhi culture and language is beautiful, but we are losing our identity. I'm hoping films can help people bond again and keep the language alive," says the 62year-old man who didn't bother whether the film raked in money when it was released two years ago.

company Dharma Productions. He is most known for directing and producing some of Bollywood's highest grossing films in India and abroad. Four of the films he has directed, those starring Shahrukh Khan, have been India's highest grossing productions in the overseas market. The success of those films resulted in crediting Johar for changing the way Indian cinema has been perceived in the West. Johar entered the film industry as an actor in Aditya Chopra's Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge(1995). He later made his directorial debut with the highly successful romantic comedy, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai(1998) which won him a Filmfare Award For Best Director and Filmfare Best Screenplay Award. His following directorial efforts were the family drama, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (2001) and the romantic drama, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna (2006), a movie which dealt with the theme of adultery. Both films were major financial successes in India and abroad. Johar thus established himself as one of the most successful filmmakers in Bollywood.[5][6] His fourth film, My Name Is Khan (2010) was met with positive reviews and grossed 200 crore (US$31 million) worldwide.[7] It earned him his second Best Director award at the Filmfare ceremony. Having done so, he has established himself as one of the most successful directors and producers in Indian Cinema.
