Shaheed (1948 film)
|Directed by||Ramesh Saigal|
|Produced by||Filmistan Ltd|
Shaheed (Hindi: शहीद, "The Martyr") is a 1948 Bollywood film directed by Ramesh Saigal. It starred Dilip Kumar, Kamini Kaushal, Chandra Mohan and Leela Chitnis. The film depicts India's struggle for independence. It had lyrics by Qamar Jalalabadi and music by the great Ghulam Haider. Songs like "Watan ki Raah Men Watan Ke Naujawan Shaheed Ho" and "Badnaam Na Ho Jaaye Mohabbat Ka Fasana" have not lost their appeal even after 60 years of the film's release.
This was actor Chandra Mohan's last screen appearance. Mohan's eyes and roaring voice were his forte, not to forget his impeccable modulation and dialogue delivery. He had earlier appeared in Pukar (1939 film), directed by Sohrab Modi, Humayun and Roti, both directed by Mehboob Khan, and Stree, directed by V. Shantaram.
