Anand Math

Anand Math is a 1952 Hindi patriotic-historical film directed by Hemen Gupta, based on Anandamath, the famous Bengali novel written by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay in 1882. The novel and film are set in the events of the Sannyasi Rebellion, which took place in the late 18th century in eastern India, especially Bengal.

The film starred Bharat Bhushan, Geeta Bali and Pradeep Kumar in the lead. Pradeep Kumar was making his debut in Hindi Cinema, as was the film's music director Hemant Kumar.[1] Hemant had already been working in Bengali Cinema for a while, but then shifted to Mumbai to start a career in Hindi Cinema. With this film, Hemant Kumar took a staff position as a composer with S. Mukherjee's Filmistan Studios [2].



Music score of the film was given by Hemant Kumar, it being his first film score in Hindi Cinema. Notable songs included Vande Mataram, based on the poem written by Bankim Chandra himself. This poem played an important role throughout the Indian Independence Movement and was eventually declared the "National Song" (distinct from the national anthem) at the time of independence in 1947.[3] Kumar's tune for Vande Mataram is still considered an important version of this popular and widely interpreted song.[4].
