Jews, the lost tribe of Indian Cinema (SPECIAL)


Harish C. Menon, IANS [Wednesday, December 14, 2005]

At a time it is reaching out to many countries, Bollywood seems to be losing out on a


legacy - its Indian Jewish benefactors.
Their role in the Hindi film industry, especially during the pre-independence, silent era,
was of great importance but is now largely forgotten - except in scholarly circles.
Not surprising since the number of Jews, consisting of three major lineages in India
(Cochinis, Baghdadis and Bene Israelis), has fallen from some 30,000 in 1948 to about
5,500 today - after living in the country for over 2,000 years.
When India started producing films in the early 20th century, it was taboo for Hindu and
Muslim women from "respectable" families to play the lead roles.
"The Jewish community, owing to the far more Westernised bringing-up, was more
liberal when it came to acting in movies, especially by the womenfolk," the Indian Jewish
Federation's founder chairman Jonathan Samuel Solomon told IANS.
Solomon, a Bene Israel whose grandfather Solomon Moses ran the Bombay Film Lab
Pvt Ltd from the 1940s to 1990s, will soon travel to Israel to interact with Indian Jews
who have now settled there.
Bene Israelis are the descendants of one of the 10 lost tribes of Israel, which was
shipwrecked at Navgaon, a small village south of Mumbai, in the second century B.C.
and made India their home.
"The community was in a sense pioneering when it comes to the Bombay film industry
with several superstars of the silent era hailing from Jewish households," said Manohar
Iyer of Keep Alive, a group striving to collate and highlight achievements of vintage
Bollywood artistes.
Actress Firoza Begum alias Susan Solomon, a Bene Israel, starred in a succession of
Hindi and Marathi films like "Bewafa Qatil", "Prem Veer" and "Circus Girl" in the 1920s
and 1930s.
Ruby Meyers (1907-1983), more famous by her screen name Sulochana (senior), was
another Bene Israel, who was introduced into the world of films by Ardeshir B. Irani, the
father of Indian talkies. The Pune-born actress starred in movies like "Typist Girl" (1926)
and "Wildcat of Bombay" (1927) and was one of the highest paid actresses of her time
drawing a salary of Rs.5,000.
She is often remembered for her role of a nanny in "Julie" (1975), which also starred
another famous Jewish actress Nadira alias Farhat Ezekiel, a Baghdadi Jew who
debuted opposite Dilip Kumar in "Aan" (1952).

"The Baghdadi Jews (who arrived from Iraq, Syria and Iran around 1796, fleeing
persecution in their native lands) were very fair and beautiful, making them ideal
candidates for the silver screen," Solomon said.
"So they were a natural choice for lead roles," he observed.
Scholars also recall Patience Cooper (1905-1983), who played the first double role of
Indian cinema in "Patni Pratap" (1923), Pramila or Esther Abraham and others.
David Abraham Cheulkar (1908-1982), better known as David, who portrayed the
benevolent "John Chacha" of "Boot Polish" (1954) and is remembered for the
song "Nanhe Munne Bachche", too was a Bene Israel. He died in Canada in 1981.
Kolkata-born Ezra Mir alias Edwin Myers (1903-1993) was the first chief of India's Film
Division, then called the Information Films of India under British rule, and is mentioned in
the Guinness Book of World Records as the producer of the largest number of
documentaries and short films.
Bunny Reuben, another Bene Israel, is a senior film journalist and author who has
chronicled the trends in Bollywood since the late 1940s and was a close friend and
publicist of legendary showman Raj Kapoor.
Reuben has penned several biographies of Bollywood personalities - the latest one
being "...and Pran", about the life and times of the screen villain Pran.
Nadira, who hailed from the Nagpada area of central Mumbai, is perhaps the only Jew
who continues today to do the odd role in television serials and cinema.
On their part, Jews - in India as well as in Israel - are fond of vintage Hindi film music.
"The 50,000-strong Indian Jews settled in Israel are perhaps the biggest fans of vintage
Bollywood music. They associate these songs with fond memories they have of their
time in India," said Solomon, who dreams of organizing a concert in Israel some day.

Main Azaad Hoon (1989)


Director:
Tinnu Anand
Writer:
Javed Akhtar (writer)
A newspaper reporter exploits an ordinary man for few rupees to pose as a man who is
fighting against the corrupt politicians and prints imaginary stories in his name to
improve the circulation of her newspaper. People take him for real and he becomes a
powerful leader of poor man. One day the paper prints a letter in his name that he is
going to end his life fighting corruption. This puts the ordinary man in a fix. He knows
that at this juncture he can't refute the accuracy of all those stories. He also realizes that
he is the sole hope of millions. Finally, he buckles under moral pressure and jumps from
an incomplete multi-storied building and ends his life
Gokuldas has taken over Rajnagar's leading newspaper and would like to increase it's
circulation manifold. He holds a conference with Pandey and Editor Sharma to this
effect. Sharma is asked to let go of some employees, including Reporter Subhashini
Saigal. On her last day at work, she writes a letter from one Azaad, threatening to kill
himself by falling from an under-construction hospital site. This story captures the
interest of the people, who demand to know who Azaad is. Gokuldas and his staff
present Azaad to the public, who are captivated by his manner of speaking and
leadership qualities. Soon Azaad gains city-wide recognition, and everyone, including
the State's Chief Minister, Gulabchand Damodar, wants to meet and befriend him.

AASTHA
Om Puri and Rekha
Manasi, a middle aged middle class woman always had the dearth of money in her life and is
never able to fulfill her heart's desires as her husband has a meager salary. But when her
daughter expresses her desires, Manasi is too pained. One day at a shoe shop, a pair of shoes
tempt Manasi but as they are overpriced she can't afford them. A lady, as a friendly gesture, offers
to pay the rest of the money. The lady then takes Manasi to a world of seductions, the glitz and
sleaze of an urban life. Somewhere along the way Manasi is led to a guilt ridden awareness of
her sexuality, an aspect that lay unrevealed. Amar, her husband, is completely unaware of the
travails of his wife. A participant in her changing sexual discernment, Amar leads a life far
removed from the one that Manasi is coerced into and entrapped by. Balancing parallel lives,
Manasi submerges into the abyss of guilt until she finds herself exposed by Amita, one of Amar's
students. Together they plan a confession by innuendo. This, Manasi concludes, is the only
chance she has to pick up the threads of her shredded life.

UTSAV
Shashi Kapoor, Rekha, Shekhar Suman, Amjad Khan, Anuradha Patel
Based on the 6th century A.D. Sanskrit play "The Golden Toy Chariot" by the famous Indian
playwright Bhasa, "Utsav" faithfully follows Bhasa's story-line. Vasantasena, a courtesan who
dances at the King Palaka's court hides in Charudatta's house while running away from the
amorous attentions of the king's brother-in-law. She falls in love with Charudatta, though he is
married and penniless. They have an affair. Meanwhile, the rightful heir to the throne - King
Palaka's brother - escapes from prison. The king's brother-in-law strangles Vasantasena when
she refuses to submit to him and leaves her for dead and Charudatta is arrested for her murder.
What happens to him and the other characters constitutes the final part of the film.

Droh Kaal (1994)


The movie starts with the scene of Abhay singh's dream of suffocation/torture. An
afraid abhay singh wakes up from the dream.That fear is the key to the
movie.The whole movie is built on fear.Except for Abhas, most of the other
characters are afraid of something or the other and they all become
betrayers.Ironically the hero's name is Abhay(Fearless).
The movie moves like a chess game with police and the naxals on opposing
sides.Wins and loses are there on both sides.One thing that is common between
the opposing sides is the betrayal of there trusted people.To an extent family is
also a common vulnerable point for both sides. Whether it is the RPG launcher
guy kishen or abhay singh they both start thinking about betrayal when it comes
to their family.
This is one of those very few movies that shows naxals as ideology driven
peoples, rather than blind violence perpetuators.On the other side it shows the
price the men in uniform have to pay for dealing with them.The line between a
police and naxal, blurs a bit when some police personal turn traitors and some
police spies who infiltrated the naxal gangs, almost become insurgents by killing
innocent people to get into the good side of the naxal leaders.The viscious circle
of betrayal and violence continues on both sides.

The movie like many govind nihalani movie has violence. But you hardly get to
see the blood and gory mutilated bodies. The violence is more mental, both the
sides believe in breaking down a man mentally through fear and physically
through tortures.Fear becomes an important weapon for both the sides and if
anyone is caught his limit to bear pain is tested and test is concluded only when
he hits the breaking point.
When the movie ends, it leaves us with a great respect for the men who fight
insurgents in our country.

Arvind desai ki ajab dastan (1978)


Cast: Om Puri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Dilip Dhawan, Anjali Paigaonkar,Shulbha
Deshpande

Arvind Desai (Dilip Dhawan) is the only son of a rich businessman (Shriram
Lagoo) who deals in luxury handicrafts and products. His feelings for his father
are mixed. While he hates his dominating nature, he admires his power and lack
of scruples. He has long discussions on art and politics with a Marxist friend (Om
Puri), is seeing his father's secretary, Alice (Anjali Paigankar) and sometimes he
visits a prostitute, Fatima. Much against his wishes, his marriage is arranged to a
girl from a high-class family that has just returned from Paris much to Alice's
mother dismay who realizes that Alice was time-pass for Arvind and nothing
more.

Pestonjee (1988)
Phirojshah (Naseeruddin Shah) and Pestonjee (Anupam Kher) are two close friends.
They attempt to do everything together, and they hope that they will marry the same
day as well. Unfortunately, both go to see the same young lady, Jeroo (Shabana
Azmi), and Pestonjee ends up getting married to Jeroo. Phirojshah has been stricken
by Jeroo's beauty and decides not to marry, and takes a transfer away from the
couple. During the years, he keeps in touch with the couple by mail. While on a visit
to the couple, he finds out that Pestonjee has a mistress, and Jeroo does not know
of this. How will this effect Phirojshah's friendship with Pestonjee? Does Phirojshah
stand a chance with Jeroo?

Mohan Joshi Hazir Ho! (1984)


This film is funnier than Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. And the acting and direction are
much better. There is a creative energy in this film that was lacking in Jaane Bhi
Do Yaaron. The film is the story of Mohan Joshi (played brilliantly by Bhisham

Sahni) and his wife (Dina Patak) who decides to take on their landlord (the
awesome Amjad Khan) as he has not repaired their house in ages despite them
paying the rent regularly. They hire the services of two wacky and cunning
lawyers (Nasserudin Shah and Satish Shah) to help them win the case against
their landlord. Rohini Htaangadi(hot!) is the opposition lawyer. The court case
drags on and on for years and the lawyers milk the old couple and become rich.
The old couple is ridiculed in their housing society for fighting the landlord. The
film is an excellent comment on the housing problem in Mumbai, the apathy of
the state and the pitiable Indian judicial system. Of the actors Bhisham Sahni and
Nasserudin Shah are the best. Shah is hilarious as a corrupt lawyer with a wig
on. There are a couple of songs in the movie that are just too cool. One is a song
in praise of Mumbai but the visuals are all about poverty and human suffering
giving it a paradoxical effect. The other one is sung by frustrated lovers whose
families are at war because of the court case. The film has a very twee indie
quality about it which gives it an edge over all the pompous films being made
today(at least in my book). At times it is refreshingly and intentionally amateurish
which makes it more endearing. The only thing that works against the movie is its
length. It could have been shorter, but still an excellent film.

Sparsh (1980)
As opposed to the general notion of Indian movies, this is not a regular run-of-the-mill
film.
It is a sensitive movie, with intense performance by Naseeruddin Shah in the role of a
self-respecting visually-impaired principal of a blind school, who hates the society for
pitying people like him. He works towards making his students self-reliant. Shabana
Azmi plays a social worker who has a troubled personal life supporting him as a
volunteer. The movie depicts the relationship between the 2. The pride of the man and
the sympathies of the woman are the cause of turbulence in their relationship.
