The film ‘Jwala’ was started sometimes in the second half of 1950s.  It was finally released in 1970, a year after the passing away of Madhubala.  As with some of her last films, this film also has deficient and compromised editing, and possible use of a double in some scenes, just to try and complete the storyline.  But forever, this will be known as her last released film.

Produced and directed by MV Raman for his own banner, Raman Productions, the film has an impressive star cast that reads like Sohrab Modi, Madhubala, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Ulhas, David, Jagirdar, Raj Mehra, Asha Parikh, Kamla Lakshman, Vijaylakshmi, Lalita Pawar, Leena Nazar, Roshan, Poonam, Naaz, Shivraj, Chaman Puri, Mukri, Kammo Tripathi, Keshav Kapoor, Vijay, Shobha, Sabeena, Shashi, Bhardwaj, Kesari, Vishwas Kunte, and Daisy Irani.  Interesting to note that Asha Parekh plays a supporting role in this film, that indicates the period of this film to be prior to when Asha ji became a leading lady with the film ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ in 1959.

There are 8 songs in this film, two of which are written by Shailendra and the remaining are by Rajinder Krishan.  This song is from the pen of Rajinder Krishan.  Music is by Shankar Jaikishan.  The singing voice is that of Mukesh, and the online performance is by Sunil Dutt, in the company of a lot of elephants, leopards and lions.  The song is the typical ‘announcing the arrival’ of the leading man.  There are so many songs of this type in Hindi films – maybe we should be getting on with another special category for such songs.

It is the voice the makes everything special for the songs he has sung.  As is the sound of this song.  Recorded sometimes in the second half of 1950s, probably 1957 or thereabouts.  Listen and enjoy.


Song – Thaam Lo Kaleja Sab Apna Apna (Jwaala) (1971) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Shankar Jaikishan
Lyrics

thaam lo kaleja
thaam lo kaleja
sab apna apna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
thaam lo kaleja
sab apna apna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
laaya hai ulfat ka rangeen sapna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
thaam lo kaleja

azaad pacnhhi masti mein ghoomun
munh badliyon ka ud ud ke chhoomun
azaad pacnhhi masti mein ghoomun
munh badliyon ka ud ud ke chhoomun
paayal ki awaaz sun sun ke jhoomun
paayal ki awaaz sun sun ke jhoomun
thaam lo kaleja
o thaam lo kaleja
sab apna apna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
laaya hai ulfat ka rangeen sapna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
thaam lo kaleja

dil bijliyon ke maine uchhaale
aur aandhiyon ke armaan nikaale
dil bijliyon ke maine uchhaale
aur aandhiyon ke armaan nikaale
himmat hai jiski nazar to milaa le
himmat hai jiski nazar to milaa le
thaam lo kaleja
o thaam lo kaleja
sab apna apna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
laaya hai ulfat ka rangeen sapna
raahi aaya hai jhoomta jhaamta
thaam lo kaleja

थाम लो कलेजा
थाम लो कलेजा
सब अपना अपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
थाम लो कलेजा
सब अपना अपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
लाया है उलफत का रंगीन सपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
थाम लो कलेजा

आज़ाद पंछी मस्ती में घूमूँ
मुंह बदलियों का उड़ उड़ के चूमूँ
आज़ाद पंछी मस्ती में घूमूँ
मुंह बदलियों का उड़ उड़ के चूमूँ
पायल की आवाज़ सुन सुन के झूमूँ
पायल की आवाज़ सुन सुन के झूमूँ
थाम लो कलेजा
ओ थाम लो कलेजा
सब अपना अपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
लाया है उलफत का रंगीन सपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
थाम लो कलेजा

दिल बीजलियों के मैंने उछाले
और आंधीयों के अरमान निकाले
दिल बीजलियों के मैंने उछाले
और आंधीयों के अरमान निकाले
हिम्मत है जिसकी नज़र तो मिला ले
हिम्मत है जिसकी नज़र तो मिला ले
थाम लो कलेजा
ओ थाम लो कलेजा
सब अपना अपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
लाया है उलफत का रंगीन सपना
राही आया है झूमता झामता
थाम लो कलेजा


In olden days, whenever a King had to make any public announcement, he would sent a royal announcer who would go to a public place, namely a market or a square. He would have a drummer with a huge Nagaada (an Indian musical drum) with him. The nagaadaa player was called nagaadchi.
