Four M’s and Prem Dhawan. That makes a list of songs that are the most often played, on the days of national significance – 15th August (Independence Day) and 26th January (Republic Day). The first M is Mohammed Rafi – “Ae Watan Ae Watan, Humko Teri Qasam”(‘Shaheed’, 1965). The second M is Mukesh –“Chodo Kal Ki Baaten” (‘Hum Hindustani’, 1960). The third M is Manna Dey – “Ae Mere Pyaare Watan” (‘Kabuliwaala’, 1961). And the fourth M is Mahendra Kapoor – “Mera Rang De Basanti Chola, Mera Rang De” (again from ‘Shaheed’, 1965). This, and so many more fabulous creations from the pen of this versatile multi-talented artists – it makes you wonder why his name is not listed in the same league as Sahir, Majrooh, Shailendra, Anand Bakshi etc.

Remembering Prem Dhawan on the anniversary of his birth. (13th June).

Born in Ambala in 1923, the young Prem attended college in Lahore. His notable contemporaries in his college years were Abdul Hayee and IK Gujral – the former to become famous in later years as Sahir Ludhianvi, and the latter to be the future Prime Minister of India. The three used to be very active in college union activities, which also brought them into the mainstream struggle for freedom. Prem and Sahir took to writing poetry, and Prem wrote many a song of patriotic fervor during the years leading to freedom. In his formative college years, he developed very strong leftist and socialist leanings and joined the Communist Party. In early 1940s he transitioned to Bomnay and came in touch with IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) and the likes of Balraj Sahni, KA Abbas, Ali Sardar Jafri and Pt. Ravi Shankar. He became a very active member of IPTA. This association would also bring to young Prem, the education in classical music and dance. His association with Pt. Ravi Shankar brought him closer to classical Hindustani music. He learnt music from Pt. Ravi Shankar. He also learnt classical dance from Shanti Roy Bardhan, an associate of Uday Shankar. These learnings would stand him in good stead in his later years in the film industry.

In 1946, he made his debut as a lyricist in the film ‘Dharti Ke Lal’. The same year he also got his first break as assistant music director for the film ‘Pagdandi’, with music director Khurshid Anwar. In 1948, he wrote lyrics for the film ‘Ziddi’, with music director Khemchand Prakash. The song ‘Chanda Re, Jaa Re Jaa Re’ became immensely popular, and continues to be even today. In an active career of more than four decades, he donned many hats. He is a lyricist, with songs written for over 200 films. He is a music director for a dozen films, including films like ‘Shaheed’ (1965), ‘Pavitra Paapi’ (1970). He is a dance director for films like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Naya Daur’ (1957), ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959) and ‘Waqt’ (1965). Decidedly an artist persona that needs to better recognized.

Searching through the memories, for today’s celebration, I bring up this wonderful melody from the 1969 film ‘Raat Ke Andhere Mein’ – a film for which Prem Dhawan has written the lyrics and also composed the music. This song in the voice if Lata ji, is another one of the endearing memories from the radio days, and I am sure this will be a very familiar melody for many friends and readers on this blog.

Produced under the banner of Ashok Films, Bombay, the star cast of the film includes Dev Kumar, Sonia Sahni, Sahida, Dev Dutt, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Murad, Rajan Haksar amongst others. The song is a stage dance song that is performed by Sonia Sahni with a group of co-dancers. As per the storyline, Dev Kumar is a bad character, and is on the run from the police. He is the long lost son of Murad and Mridula Rani, who have been searching for him for years, based on the description of a locket that the child was wearing when he got separated from his parents. The child has grown up into a criminal, and actually he knows he is the son of Murad. But because he is a criminal, he refuses to go back to his parents, for the fear of getting bad name for them. Murad and his family also suspect this to be true, but are not certain.

To reach his son, Murad plans way to trap him, with the help of police. The criminal Dev Kumar is in love with Sonia Sahni. Murad arranges a stage show in which he brings Sonia Sahni to perform a dance. With the expectation that Dev Kumar will some way or the other come to the program to watch his beloved, the plan is put in place. The expected happens. Dev Kumar enters the theatre in disguise, but then removes it once he is inside. The police inspector Rajan Haksar is watching the audience and he locates Dev Kumar. By the time song ends, he is enters the box section where Dev Kumar is sitting, and takes him into custody. (This is almost the end of the film). The remaining few minutes are the happy-ending minutes as Rajan Haksar takes the criminal Dev Kumar, not to the police station but to Murad’s residence. After all is sorted out and everybody is happy, the inspector then takes the criminal with him, saying that he will try for a pardon or a light sentence for him.

The song itself is simply a treat to listen to. The metre of the verses and the tune are so beautifully synchronized that it makes for a delightful piece of music. So listen to this endearing creation from Prem Dhawan,

Enjoy.


Song-Na jaane peer dil ki bepeer baalma (Raat Ke Andhere Mein)(1969) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

dil de diya usey
jo dil ki zubaan na samjhe
jo dil ko dil na jaane
aur jaan ko jaan na samjhe
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
kaahe tere sang jodi taqdeer zaalma
na jaane
na jaane peer mere dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma

preet lagaa ke tosey bade dukh paaye
preet lagaa ke tosey bade dukh paaye
phoolon ke dhokhe mein kaante uthaaye
baithi hoon phir bhi main dil se lagaaye
ab bhi teri hi tasveer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
kaahe tere sang jodi taqdeer zaalma
na jaane
na jaane peer mere dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma

sapnon mein baithi thhi doli sajaa ke
sapnon mein baithi thhi doli sajaa ke
haathon mein aasha ki mehndi rachaa ke
socha naa tha ke aise jaaoge mitaa ke
paani pe jaise ho lakeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma
kaahe tere sang jodi taqdeer zaalma
na jaane
na jaane peer mere dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma

raas naa aaya hamen dil ka lagaana
raas naa aaya hamen dil ka lagaana
tera to khel thha dil tod jaana
jaana tujhe par der se jaana
ki hai yehi to taqseer baalma
na jaane peer mere dil ki
bepeer baalma
na jaane peer dil ki
bepeer baalma

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
—————————————-
दिल दे दिया उसे
जो दिल की ज़ुबाँ ना समझे
जो दिल को दिल ना जाने
और जान को जान ना समझे
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
काहे तेरे संग जोड़ी तक़दीर ज़ालमा
ना जाने
ना जाने पीर मेरे दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा

प्रीत लगा के तोसे बड़े दुख पाये
प्रीत लगा के तोसे बड़े दुख पाये
फूलों के धोखे में कांटे उठाए
बैठी हूँ फिर भी मैं दिल से लगाए
अब भी तेरी ही तस्वीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
काहे तेरे संग जोड़ी तक़दीर ज़ालमा
ना जाने
ना जाने पीर मेरे दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा

सपनों में बैठी थी डोली सजा के
सपनों में बैठी थी डोली सजा के
हाथों में आशा की मेहंदी रचा के
सोचा ना था के ऐसे जाओगे मिटा के
पानी पे जैसे हो लकीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
काहे तेरे संग जोड़ी तक़दीर ज़ालमा
ना जाने
ना जाने पीर मेरे दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा

रास ना आया हमें दिल का लगाना
रास ना आया हमें दिल का लगाना
तेरा तो खेल था दिल तोड़ जाना
जाना तुझे पर देर से जाना
की है यही तो तक़सीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर मेरे दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
ना जाने पीर दिल की
बेपीर बालमा
