atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Moonchh waale daadaa…ham to huye aazaad

Posted on: August 15, 2013


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Greetings to all as we celebrate today the 66th anniversary of independence of this nation. Over the years, we have enjoyed many songs, published on this blog and many not yet showcased here. Songs that celebrate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism, songs that celebrate the event of freedom for this nation on this day. The flavors and the moods of these songs vary a lot. From serious songs of nationalism, from songs that talk of struggles and martyrdom, from songs that exhort their audience to rise and protect, to the songs that celebrate the honor of this land and its people, to the songs that express joy of freedom, and songs that inspire hard work and nation building. So many poets have written such a variety of verses. Every Independene Day and Republic Day we post 6 to 8 songs, and yet there seems to be a treasure of such songs that is out there, still to be discovered.

Then there is one more category of such songs that celebrate the children of this land. These are songs of inspiration that tell the young minds about the proud history of this land, about the struggles many great people have endured to wrest away the control of this nation from foreign invaders, songs that encourage the children, to aim for great deeds and great achievements. So many wonderful songs come to mind that belong to this category.

But this song, I believe is unique in some ways. This is a children’s song, a song that celebrates the spirit of freedom and the loss of shackles of slavery. One unique thing about this song is that this song is sung by the children themselves. And the second part of its uniqueness is that unlike most other songs, this is simply a fun song – and you will hear things like “bom chik, bom chik” in here.

The song is from the 1966 film ‘Hum Kahaan Jaa Rahe Hain’. The song is written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi and the music is composed by Basant Prakash. The singing voice is that of Usha Mangeshkar.

And now, before we proceed to discuss the song further, I will take an important pause here and introduce another celebration for today. With this song, we are celebrating the century of songs by the youngest daughter of the Mangeshkar family – Usha ji. A very important milestone, given the impressions that she has probably not sung too many songs in Hindi films. That is true also, that her forte has been Marathi and Gujarati film songs. So I tried to do some very cursory review of her filmography of Hindi films. With a debut in Hindi films in 1954, over a period of two and a half decades till 1980, Usha ji has logged more than 500 songs. This is not counting her songs post 1980. And frankly, I am happily surprised to see this score.

Usha ji is the daughter of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar and Shevanti Mangeshkar and the youngest of the four sisters . Her date of birth is 15th December, 1935, which makes her six years younger to Lata ji, the eldest sibling. Following the footsteps of her elder sisters, Usha ji was also groomed into Hindustani classical music, right from the childhood. She learnt music at the feet of Ustad Amanat Ali Khan and Ustad Aman Ali Khan. A lesser known aspect of her capabilities is that she is also an accomplished painter. She has formally learnt painting from the famous artist R Archekar, at his art school in Bombay. She has held an occasional exhibition of her paintings in Bombay. As per an interview, Uhsa ji reveals that she was enamored into this hobby, after listening to the iconic song of
‘Madhumati’ (1958) sung by Mukesh – “Suhaana Safar Aur Ye Mausam Haseen”.

Her career in Hindi films started in 1954. She sang in as part of a trio along with her sisters Lata ji and Meena ji, a wedding song in the film ‘Chaandni Chowk’ – “Banno Ke Haath Bhari Mehndi’. Another song from the same year is from the film ‘Pilpili Saheb’, also a trio with Meena ji and Shaminder – “Sapnon Ki Duniya Mein Naya Rang Laaya, O Manbhaaya Phaagan Aaya”. But the song that really captured the attention of the listeners was the fun song sung by a small child, in the expectant welcome if a new bhabhi. The film, ‘Subah Ka Taara’, and the song – “Bhabheee Aayee. . . .”, a wonderful song that is oh so delightfully enacted on screen by Baby Rajshree. (Yes, Rajshree as a child star.)

And then, in 1955 it was a duet with her elder sister Lata ji, from the film ‘Azaad’. The song – “Aplam Chaplam, Chaplaayee Re. . .”. And the same year, she sang the wonderful solo song for film ‘Devdaas –“O Albele Panchhi Tera Door Thikaana Hai”. And on she went from these initial films. On the way, however, a certain typecasting happened, and she became one of the preferred voices for children songs. Besides, she got to sing for many religious and mythological films. So much so that that is another genre for which her voice is preferred. And the blockbuster happened in 1975, when C Arjun got her to sing for him in the mega hit religious film ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’. The film and its songs surpassed all expectations of popularity and success in the industry. With the iconic aarti “Main To Aarti Utaarun Re, Santoshi Mata Ki”, she became a household name for devotional singing across India.
(The film was remade in 2006, and Usha ji reprised her performance with all the songs). I have an audio cassette of non film bhajans sung by her, dating from the 1980s. Each of the bhajans is a wondrous gem of devotional music.

So, coming back to this song. On screen, the song is performed by the child Daisy Irani. And gosh, what a bubbly and bouncy performance this one is. Quite unbelievable that a child can perform so well. But as a child, Daisy has many such remarkable performances to her credit. This song is special, because it is one of the few songs in which she is the lead artist, and not sharing the screen with other elders. I mean there are others in the frame, but she is the one who is leading the song. When this film was released, she was all of thirteen years. What a vivacious personality and what sparkling eyes, what lively actions and what wonderful timing. Enjoy every bit of it.

So, coming back to this song. As Prakash ji and Nayan ji have written, the child star is Master Raja and not Daisy Irani. (I stand corrected, and apologize for the incorrect identification. But yes, the remaining observations about the performance still hold, in my opinion :) ). What a bubbly and bouncy performance this one is. Quite unbelievable that a child can perform so well. What a vivacious personality and what sparkling eyes, what lively actions and what wonderful timing. Prakash ji reminds us of another wonderful song in which this child star appears. It is the famous “Daadi Amma Daadi Amma Maan Jaao” from the film ‘Gharana’ (1961). The film may not be much to write about, but just by itself, this song is really outstanding. Enjoy every bit of it.

Other actors recognizable in the frame are Badri Prasad, the ‘Moochh Waale Daada’ and Leela Misra, the ‘Gol Mol Daadi’. The song will also count as a train song, for this performance is happening inside a moving train. The film itself is a painful statement of the degenerative state of the society. Back in 1966, the film questioned the direction and the dubious accomplishments of a nation that had gained its independence just a couple of decades earlier. The film and its songs, speak to the ills in the society, and regret the chances that this nation has flunked, in its mad rush for modernization and western influences. Once again, another statement from the decades past, focusing on the issues and problems this society faces. Looking at the state of affairs today, things have probably only worsened.

Ah yes, but this song is a delight – a delight for the occasion today and a delightful fun that it is in itself. Enjoy.

Where is Daisy Irani? The song is picturised on another child star, whose name, I have forgotten. He had acted in several movies of mid 60s.
Daisy was a young girl, when this film was released. Just see her in ‘Aarzoo’, which was released during this time. She was a friend of Sadhna & sang a song with her, in that movie!

starcast:Abhi Bhattacharya,Rajan Haksar,Leela Mishra,Gajanan Jagirdar,Murad,Nadira,
Introducing Prakash & Neena,
Badri Prasad,P.Kailash,Raj Kishore,Bhardwaj,Vithaldas Panchotia,Jankidas,Master Raja,
Master Prakash,Pasha,Pardhi,Narbada Shankar,

Production House:Filmistan Private Limited Director:Nitin Bose

In the credit sequences(video link-now not available)But I have written it long ago, there is one name Master Raja in the credit sequences(May be another name of child artiste Moppet Raja, who starred in 1961 Gharana famous song “Dadi amma daadi amma maan jaao”
Please correct me, If I am wrong, the child artiste may be same MOPPET RAAJA/ or RAJOO

Thanks for this post, Sudhirji.

And congrats to Usha Mangeshkar for also getting to her century here. I was noticing Atul posting a lot of Usha songs in the last few days – I then checked the stats page. :-)

I didn’t know Usha has sung 500+ songs in Hindi movies! Well, we’ve now got 100 of them here.

PC as usual you are right. He is Raja.
It was a pathetic movie. Badri Prasad, Leela Mishra and other veterans were wasted. Can’t believe it was directed by Nitin Bose or was it by Lousy Dose!!!

It was a horrible movie, & I think it was the last film of Nitin Bose. We used to say that ‘ Ham kahin bhi jaayenge, magar, jis theatre mein yeh movie lagi hain, wahan nahi jayenge!’

Nayan ji, Prakash ji, Nitin ji,

Thanks for helping to correctly identify the child star in this song. I was mistaken based on some images of Daisy Irani that I rememeber from other films. This child actor is Master Raja. The write up above has been suitably updated.

Raja ji,
Thanks for your note of warm appreciation. I remember this song from radio days, and I stumbled on this video clip, earlier in the week. Nice fun song.
Re Usha ji’s score, the number 500+ is just till 1980. And she continues to be active.

Rgds all
Sudhir

Sudhir ji

Aap akele nahin, main bhi shuru shuru mein Daisy Irani aur Moppet raja/Master Raja ke identifidcation ke baare mein bahut confused thaa, baad mein, bahut dinon ke baad, main unn donon ko teek teek tarha se pehchaan paayaa. Ab bhi main ye keh nahin saktaa ke unn donon ko teek tarhaa se main identify kar sakthaa hoon.

Regards
Prakash
