Thanks for Posting this Sir, here is another link to Bombay from the 1880′s and later, Some Wonderful images of Bombay here. I know you would appreciate these more than anyone. Look at V.T. station (3rd) in that time. So clean and no people. Lol.
Glad you liked it sir, There are 2 more images there, I chose the best one of 3 to produce it here. If you like, Just go to the entertainment section and you will be able to see lots of gems like these, There are some images of him shooting at a train station for a 1974 film. (Sonar Dar ??). Let me know if you can’t find them, I will get em for you.
Timeless beauty, stealing hearts even now
Leaving admirers gasping for breath.
Envious beauties staring and sighing
While Madhubala’s spirit maybe smiling away
From afar at all the wordly adulation
Happy and unhappy memories haunting her
And she haunting everyone whenever female beauty is mentioned.
“*Her complexion was so fair and translucent that when she ate paan you could almost see the red colour going down her throat, recollected actor Minu Mumtaz. ”
“*Her excessive and unquestioning obedience to her father, her inability to take the right decision at the right time, and her highly emotional nature complicated her life with disastrous results.”
*She was the sole earning member of her large family. They were five sisters.
*She worked like a machine, missed a meal, travelled daily in the over-crowded third class compartments from Malad to Dadar and was never late or absent from work.
*She once said: I am not a spendthrift for the simple reason that I do not know what to spend money on. I do not have a passion for jewellery or clothes. I do not travel. I do not go out much. By god’s grace I have all the necessities of life and I’m happy.
*Of the few relaxations, one was driving, which she had learnt at the age of 12. Driving was a pleasure and when she wanted a change she took to the wheel and went off for a drive.
I don’t have time to write more but I think Madhubala if often unfairly derided as a non-actress but she was a far better actress than most of the ‘stars’ we are stuck with today. She had a lot of very good performances, in both comic and tragic roles. Her romancing with people like Ashok Kumar, Kishore Kumar and of course Dilip Kumar was always so watchable.
Wow Oldgold – yeh Kya Kar dala
Jus got up — checked your song — haven’t seen this one b4
And madhubala looks ethereal here
Bit of a mismatch with Ashok geriatric kumar, isn’t it
I think this flick has some other good tracks as well ?
Beautiful song and a film I would be happy to see again -I always kind of forget that these two acted together! I like Guru Dutt a lot as an actor – he actually did several decent roles outside his own movies.
Never seen this song onscreen before – I never knew it was picturised Madhubala! And sleeping at that! She looks perfect. And another movie I’ve not seen…looks like I need a Madhubala festival sometime soon
Heard this madhubala song ‘yeh kya kar daala’ on repeat again. Timely– esp after the django unchained brutalities (the near beating i got afterwards from a senior female colleague who thought this brutal film was some mischief on purpose!)
ps–oldgold–what did u think of django unchained?
ps2–anyhow–what a soothing balm MB is here in this song –for the tired mind (& body)
–theres something ‘dangerous’ about MB
