In 1952, this voice came to the fore with the rousing proclamation of “Vande Maatram, Vande Maatram”. This song, which comes from the seminal creation of Bankim Chandra Chatterji – ‘Anand Matth’, was first published in 1882. After the passing of the first war of independence in 1857, the undercurrents of anger and resistance were simmering across the country. But the voices of cohesive and decisive action were still to come a couple of decades later. With the publication of ‘Anand Matth’, the nation and its people got a slogan that said everything in just two simple words. After this song came on the lips of the common man, over the years many musical interpretations have been pronounced. Most of them are based in classical music, and the most popular versions are gradual and lingering, in the mode of a prayer to the motherland.

In 1952, in the hands of Hemant Kumar, the entire concept of this song took on a wonderfully new dimension. Building on the theme of militancy against the foreign rule, arising out of the bedrock of a religious and spiritual belief system, Hemant Kumar translated this ode into the clarion call of the freedom fighters, as they ride and march to the battlefield, to wage a war against the alien oppressors and wrest back the freedom that had so brutally and mercilessly been taken away from them. Over the one and quarter century of its existence, the interpretation and the rhythm that Hemant Da gave to this prayer song in 1952, was peerless then, and has been unmatched since.

Remembering (belatedly) Hemant Da on the anniversary of his birth on 16th June.

It was in the early fifties that Hemant Da captured the attention of the listeners with “Aa Gup Chup Gup Chup Pyaar Karen” . But not many are familiar that he had made his debut in Hindi films as far back as 1944, with the film ‘Iraada’. From 1944 to 1950, he just has a dozen odd songs to his credit. It was after the films like ‘Sazaa’ and ‘Anand Matth’ that his presence in Hindi films becomes much better known and heard.

On this occasion, I present a song from his 1944 debut film ‘Iraada’. This film is produced in the eastern center of Calcutta. The film industry there was phasing out, on account of the world war, the great famine, and a large number of film artists and technical people had started an exodus to Bombay during the first half of 1940s. This film is from the banner of Indrapuri Studio, Calcutta and is directed by Shamsuddin. The music direction is by Pt Amarnath, and the lyrics are written by Aziz Kashmiri. The cast of actors includes Dheeraj Bhattacharya, Sheda Keyorvi, Pushpa Rani, Peshans Cooper, Purnima, Sham Laha, Lala Akbar etc. Hemant has three songs in this film. Two are solo and one is a duet with Radha Rani. With this solo song in the voice of Hemant Da, the film makes a debut on this blog today.

The song tells about how the heartless people of this world know only how to sleep easy in the night. They do not understand the ecstasies of the aches of love, and cannot appreciate the flowing tresses of a comely damsel. They do not understand the emotions of the heart, and cannot appreciate the singing of the bulbul bird.

Listen to what may be one of the first Hindi film song recorded by Hemant Da.

Enjoy.

Lyrics

aaraam
aaraam
aaraam se jo raaten kaaten
wo ashq bahaana kya jaanen
aaraam se jo raaten kaaten
wo ashq bahaana kya jaanen
kya dard kisi samay lazzat hai
kya dard kisi samay lazzat hai
bedard zamaana kya jaane
bedard zamaana kya jaane
aaraam

jo paer se phool kuchal daale
aur kachchi kaliyaan masal daale
jo paer se phool kuchal daale
aur kachchi kaliyaan masal daale
wo zulf kahaani kya samjhe
wo zulf kahaani kya samjhe
bulbul ka fasaana kya jaane
bulbul ka fasaana kya jaane
aaraam
aaraam
aaraam se jo raaten kaaten
wo ashq bahaana kya jaanen
aaraam

bedardon ki ae dil basti hai
hansti hai ye duniya hansne de
bedardon ki ae dil basti hai
hansti hai ye duniya hansne de
jo jiska wo dil se wo samjhe
jo jiska wo dil se wo samjhe
dukh mera zamaana kya jaane
dukh mera zamaana kya jaane
aaraam
aaraam
aaraam se jo raaten kaaten
wo ashq bahaana kya jaanen
aaraam
aaraa. . .aam
aa. . .aaraam

आराम
आराम
आराम से जो रातें काटें
वो अश्क बहाना क्या जानें
आराम से जो रातें काटें
वो अश्क बहाना क्या जानें
क्या दर्द किसी समय लज़्ज़त है

क्या दर्द किसी समय लज़्ज़त है
बेदर्द ज़माना क्या जाने
बेदर्द ज़माना क्या जाने
आराम

जो पैर से फूल कुचल डाले
और कच्ची कलियाँ मसल डाले
जो पैर से फूल कुचल डाले
और कच्ची कलियाँ मसल डाले
वो जुल्फ कहानी क्या समझे
वो जुल्फ कहानी क्या समझे
बुलबुल का फसाना क्या जाने
बुलबुल का फसाना क्या जाने
आराम
आराम
आराम से जो रातें काटें
वो अश्क बहाना क्या जानें
आराम

बेदर्दों के ए दिल बस्ती है
हँसती है ये दुनिया हंसने दे
बेदर्दों के ए दिल बस्ती है
हँसती है ये दुनिया हंसने दे
जो जिसका वो दिल से वो समझे
जो जिसका वो दिल से वो समझे
दुख मेरा ज़माना क्या जाने
दुख मेरा ज़माना क्या जाने
आराम
आराम
आराम से जो रातें काटें
वो अश्क बहाना क्या जानें
आराम
आरा॰ ॰आssम
आ॰ ॰आss राम

Sudhirji,
WOW what a gem. It has a touch of NFS that make it so touching. Classy. Lyrics by our Aziz. Thanks ji.

Sudhirji,
Thanks for this rare song. Hearing it for the first time.

Sudhir-ji, More an NFS than a film song. Perhaps that was the style then. Many thanks for posting this rare number
