Sometimes the temptation to write an article about an artist is to start with a sampler of the fabulous, memorable songs by him/her, to represent the variety, the flavor and the endearing memories that artist has created as a legacy and a treasure presented for generations to enjoy. But when one is writing about an artist of the stature of Rafi, or Lata, or Naushad, giving even an extended sampler for such artists is like lighting a lamp in bright sunlight (literally ‘suraj ko diya dikhana’). There are a few artists of such eminence that need no introductions through a sampler list of their songs. A name that definitely belongs to this category is Majrooh Sb.

Remembering Majrooh Sultanpuri on the anniversary of his passing away today (24th May).

A prolific lyricist if ever there was one, an accurate count of his body of work may be difficult to present. His career spans the decades from 1940s to 1990s – a slice of time that represents almost the complete history of the Hindi Films in the twentieth century. In a major part, the songs of Majrooh have shaped the face and the story of the Hindi film song during these six decades. The Hindi Film Geet Kosh represents the history of the Hindi film songs spanning the years 1931 to 1980. A rough scan of the four volumes (1940, 1950, 1960 and 1970) during which Majrooh Sb was active, produces a number well above 1300 songs. Add to this his creations in the two decades of 1980 and 1990s. The total of songs created by him may not be less than 1600, that is my intuition. A hugely prolific output by any standards.

Born as Asrar Hussain Khan on 1st October, 1919 at Nizamabad in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh. His family is originally from Sultanpur (also in Uttar Pradesh). His father was in the Police department, and when Asrar was born, he was posted in Azamgarh. Sultanpur being his ancestral home region, he took it as part of his ‘takhallus’ (signature name) when he started writing. The other part of his signature – ‘Majrooh’, means ‘wounded’ or ‘hurt’. The time used to be when the pain and heartburn was the source of poetical inspirations. And hence the signature name.

A bio sketch on his early life and his introduction into the film world can be seen in an earlier post, for the song “Kaanton Se Chhedte Hain Mere Jigar Ke Chhaale” .

Besides the remembrance, we are also celebrating a major milestone for this prolific writer – the 800th song from his pen to be posted on this blog. He leads the lyricists in terms of number of songs posted here. (He is closely followed by another prolific penman, Rajendra Krishan who is about 25 songs behind Majrooh Sb.)

For this occasion, I present this wonderful female duet song from the film ‘Kal Hamaara Hai’ from 1959. The music of this lovely lilting melody is, not surprisingly, from the baton of Chitragupt. And the singing voices are those of Lata Mangeshkar and Usha Mangeshkar. This song is a lovely memory from the radio days.

The film is produced by K Amarnath under the banner of K Amarnath Productions and is directed by SK Prabhakar. The seven songs of this film are written by Shailendra and Majrooh Sb. The music is by Chitragupt. The credits indicate that one of the seven songs is composed by another music director – Gajanan. The star cast of the film is Madhubala, Bharat Bhooshan, Lila Chitnis, Jayant, Jagdev, Jeevankala, Hari Shivdasani, Ramlal, Wazir Mohammed Khan, Brahm Bhardwaj, Lalit Kapoor, Heera, Deepak, Bishan Khanna, Amrit Rana. The Geet Kosh also notes that this film was launched with the title ‘Teen Patte’, but the name was changed by the time it got released.

Listen to this wonderful song, which is most certainly a dance song in the film. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please comment on the on screen performance of this song.

With 800 and counting, this is a hearty salute to one of the most abundantly creative songwriters in the Hindi film industry. Enjoy the song, and savor the memories of the time when melody ruled the music waves.

Lyrics

jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa

raat kahaan the chaahe hum se bataao naa
khul ke to baat karo akhiyaan chhupaao naa
raat kahaan the chaahe hum se bataao naa
khul ke to baat karo akhiyaan chhupaao naa
kaahe chhupaate ho
kaahe banaate ho
nainaa bataate hain kahaan the piyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa

hothon mein baat kaahe reh gayi toot ke
dekho roomal kahaan gir gayaa chhoot ke
hothon mein baat kaahe reh gayi toot ke
dekho roomal kahaan gir gayaa chhoot ke
pheeki hansi kyun hai
baat ruki kyun hai
jaane bhi do main ne maan to liyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa

uff na kiya re sainyaan kabhi tere pyaar mein
raat ki raat jali tere intezaar mein
uff na kiya re sainyaan kabhi tere pyaar mein
raat ki raat jali tere intezaar mein
chaaho to phir sainyaan
chhodo meri bainyaan
jaao wahin jis ne jaadu sa kiya
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa
qasam jhoothi khaa ke naa jalaao re jiyaa
jaao rasiyaa
hato jaao rasiyaa

जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया

रात कहाँ थे चाहे हमसे बताओ ना
खुल के तो बात करो अखियाँ छुपाओ ना
रात कहाँ थे चाहे हमसे बताओ ना
खुल के तो बात करो अखियाँ छुपाओ ना
काहे छुपाते हो
काहे बनाते हो
नैना बताते हैं कहाँ थे पिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया

होठों में बात काहे रह गई टूट के
देखो रुमाल कहाँ गिर गया छूट के
होठों में बात काहे रह गई टूट के
देखो रुमाल कहाँ गिर गया छूट के
फीकी हंसी क्यूँ है
बात रुकी क्यूँ है
जाने भी दो मैंने मान तो लिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया

उफ़्फ़ ना किया रे सैंयाँ कभी तेरे प्यार में
रात की रात जली तेरे इंतज़ार में
उफ़्फ़ ना किया रे सैंयाँ कभी तेरे प्यार में
रात की रात जली तेरे इंतज़ार में
चाहो तो फिर सैंयाँ
छोड़ो मेरी बैंयाँ
जाओ वहीं जिसने जादू सा किया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया
क़सम झूठी खाके ना जलाओ रे जिया
जाओ रसिया
हटो जाओ रसिया

Simple lyrics and a catchy tune! A tribute to the maker of the film,K.Amarnath, who would have been a 100yrs. this month

Or rather this year on the 1st of December .To listen to a plethora of melodious songs ,a visit to the website http://www.k-Amarnath-movie-producer-director.com created by his daughter Manju .Das is a must.

Madhu ji,

Thanks for your appreciative comment. And also the link for the website on director K Amarnath.

Our tributes to Majrooh Saab on his anniversary.
@ Sudhir Sir – thanks for the post! from ‘when melody ruled the music waves’ – i remember this album from EMI/HMV titled as ‘when melody was Queen’ and yes now we have to say ‘ then … melody was Queen’…,
thanks!

Avinash ji,

Thanks for your message.
I am in full agreement with your sentiments.

Sudhir ji,
Thanks for the song and for remembering Majrooh ji.
For the records,as per ‘Gaata Rahe mera dil’ by Salil Dalal,he wrote songs in 362 Hindi films, 4 unreleased films and 4 Bhojpuri films.
Anil Bhargava,in his ‘ Hindi filmon ke geetkar’ says Majrooh wrote about 2300 film songs.
By coincidence he started writing film songs with 2 films in 1946 and ended by also 2 films in 2004. In his career,he missed only 1 year-2003,in which he did not write a single song.

Arun ji,

Thanks, as always, for the additional information – it can come only from you.

Best regards
Sudhir

Great tribute to a great poet and lyricist, Majrooh Sultanpuri.
After reading your article, got inspired to know more about him.
From all the wonderful songs written by him, it is an honour to have a song from one my dad’s movies posted in your article “Remembering Majrooh Sultanpuri on the anniversary of his passing away” and also as his 800th song milestone on your blog. Thank you very much.
Sudhir Sir, I must commend you for your in-depth research – I had to confirm with my brothers re the original title of the movie ‘Kal Hamara Hai’ !!! You are right – it was ‘Teen Patte’. Actor Jayant (father of Amjad Khan) is in the scene, however, we are not sure of the dancer/s?
Majrooh Sultanpuri was the lyricist for 5 of my dad, K.Amarnath’s movies.
Thanks again!
Manju Amarnath Das

Dear Manju ji,

It is an honor to get a visit on our blog from the daughter of K Amarnath, one of the dear film directors that I respect. I have seen most of his films and I have few of them in my collection also.

I am glad that you appreciated the write up on Majrooh Sb, and thanks for your comment of appreciation. I realize that I missed the opportunity to post a write up on your dad for 14th May. But as I note from the comment by Madhu Sharma ji, and also from the web site that you have so lovingly created in the honor of your dad, his birth centennial falls on 1st December this year. I promise that I will have a post in the celebration of his birth centenary on that day.

I have visited the web site that you have set up. I can see that you have spent lots of effort to pull together information, pictures and audio/video material for this website, and I commend you for that.

Firstly, Sudhir Sir, thank you very much for making time to go through my website tribute to my father, K.Amarnath and appreciating it. Secondly, you don’t have to apologize for missing a post on my dad on the 14th of May – it would have really surprised me if you had!! You and the other amazing contributors have already done such a wonderful job on all the write-ups of his movie songs. In fact, the links to your blog’s articles on my website post “More From The Web” have enhanced my tribute tremendously making the website more interesting, complete and comprehensive. As I had mentioned earlier, it is unbelievable, but I have learnt a lot more about his movies and songs from your website!
Thanks again!

Re: Lyrics by Majrooh Sultanpuri in K.Amarnath movies:
Ishaara – 1964
Kabli Khan – 1963
Baraat – 1960
Kal Hamara Hai – 1959
Mehbooba – 1954
Just going through the list of my father’s movies reflects how versatile and gifted Majrooh Sultanpuri was – in fact, he was a genius!

Sorry, just realized that my above comment was incomplete.

Sudhir Sir, thank you very much for having seen most of my father’s available movies. My family, especially my younger sister, Madhu Sharma, and all my friends will be very pleased to see a post on my dad’s birth centenary on your wonderful website. Looking forward to it.

And I would like to thank Atul Sir for permitting me to use the articles on my website.
Wishing you All the Best.

Regards

Manju Amarnath Das
