Today, we are on track to reach the 10K target. And yes, of course, we must also proclaim the 6th anniversary of this blog. Way back in 2008, this day is the day that Atul made a small start with a song from the film ‘Anokhi Raat’. As Sadanand ji has written in his post yesterday,

gair saath aate gaye aur kaarwaan bantaa gaya

Getting to the amazing size of ten thousand songs in this collection – I am sure is a feat that is unparalleled anywhere in the history of online repositories of Hindi film and non film songs. As we are slowly moving towards this eagerly awaited target, I am today posting some songs that have something special about them. In this post, I present an unlisted and presumably an unknown song from the 1961 film ‘Shama’. And what a gem of a ghazal this one is.

It is really a wonder that this ghazal is not listed in the film booklet, it does not appear in the Geet Kosh listing, and no records were made for it. Once you hear this, you will also join me in wonder that this song has gone un-referred anywhere, in any compilation and in any material written about this film and its songs. I would think that only the people who have seen the film and remember about it, would be aware of this song. By that measure, this song is almost as if an unknown song is discovered, and that makes it special to be part of this special set of posts today.

A few days ago, I had posted a rare ghazal from the same film. That ghazal too is a unique and rare one, in that it is sung by actress Nimmi, likely the only film song item that we can find in her voice. In that write up I had put the following closing note

(NOTE: A short note about the songs in this film. The Geek Kosh lists 11 songs for this film. 10 songs are already posted on this blog. With this post, we should be completing the songs of this film. But are we? No, I think not. There is still a surprise from this film awaiting to be revealed. Shortly. :) )

So today I bring on that surprise item from this film. This is a ghazal that is sung in a mushaira by the hero Parvez (role played by Vijay Dutt). The setting is a very traditional one, all the male participants and audience in one part of the hall, and all the lady audience in another part separated by a purdah. The rendition is also very traditional, with frequent applause and emotional participation by the audience, as the ghazal progresses.

The lyrics are by Kaifi Azmi and the tuning and pace is arranged by Ghulam Mohammed. I mention tune and pace only, since there is no musical accompaniment, as the setting is a mushaira and the poets are to present their verses in their own voice. That is what makes this rendition so very interesting. I will not be surprised to find that this most likely is a live recording and not a playback. The singing voice is of Vijay Dutt himself. In the video clip, we can see Roshan Ara (role played by Suraiya) sitting in ladies side of the hall, along with her friend (role played by Indira Bansal). On stage there is one person in white achkan, who is a close friend on Parvez in the film. He is a very familiar character artist of that time, but I am not able to recall his name. Also, sitting on the dias, sporting a goatee beard and a fez cap is actor Lotan. Both of them present their ghazals before Parvez stands up to deliver his rendition.

Does this now close the list of songs for this film? Probably yes. In this same mushaira setting, there are actually two more ghazals, that are somewhat shorter, and somewhat in a lighter note. They too are not listed. I will probably post them together in another post shortly.

And so, listen to this wonderful gem of a ghazal that has thus far escaped being listed anywhere in print or online.

Enjoy.

sach kehte ho tum dil ka bharosa to nahin hai
mehfil mein machal jaaye ab aisa to nahin hai

It is true, what you say
This heart is not worth of trust
(But I say, it has improved)
It no longer is like
It will slip and be wayward in a gathering

kyun hat’ti nahin parde se betaab nigaahen
parde ke udhar meri tamanna to nahin hai

My impatient glances
Just can’t seem to get away
From this screen of drapes
Is it that the one I desire
Is present on the other side

sab husn ke kaayal hain magar meri tareh se
be-dekhe kisi ne tumhen chaaha to nahin hai

Every person reveres beauty
It is such in this world
Ah, but has anyone grew fond of you
Even without seeing you
As I have

kyun jhukne lagi aankhen chhalakne lagey saagar
maikhaane ke baahar koi pyaasa to nahin hai

Why is it that your glance is lowered
And wine cups of your eyes overflow
Is there someone yearning and thirsty
Standing outside the tavern

aa jaao ke hum apna jahaan aap basaa len
duniya ye kisi kaam ki duniya to nahin hai

Come let us build a new world
All our own
This world, this place
Is simply not worth anything

farmaane lagey dekh ke wo dil ka tadapnaa
hai dard magar itna ziyaada to nahin hai

On seeing my heart in agony
This is what she had to say
Yes, there is pain in the heart
But not enough as yet

parwaana ghazal aaj teri kar gayi jaadu
ye faiz usi mast nazar ka to nahin hai

My verses have created a magic
In this gathering today
Ah, so it must be
The graceful favor of her
Exuberant glances

(NOTE: ‘parwaana’ is the ‘takhallus’ (pen name) used by the hero Parvez, in the film).

Lyrics

sach kehte ho tum
dil ka bharosa to nahin hai
sach kehte ho tum
dil ka bharosa to nahin hai
mehfil mein machal jaaye
ab aisa to nahin hai
sach kehte ho tum
dil ka bharosa to nahin hai

kyun hat’ti nahin parde se
betaab nigaahen
kyun hat’ti nahin parde se
betaab nigaahen
parde ke udhar
meri tamanna to nahin hai
parde ke udhar
meri tamanna to nahin hai

sab husn ke kaayal hain
magar meri tareh se
sab husn ke kaayal hain
magar meri tareh se
be-dekhe kisi ne tumhen
chaaha to nahin hai
be-dekhe kisi ne tumhen
chaaha to nahin hai

kyun jhukne lagi aankhen
chhalakne lagey saagar
kyun jhukne lagi aankhen
chhalakne lagey saagar
maikhaane ke baahar
koi pyaasa to nahin hai
maikhaane ke baahar
koi pyaasa to nahin hai

aa jaao ke hum apna jahaan
aap basaa len
aa jaao ke hum apna jahaan
aap basaa len
duniya ye
kisi kaam ki duniya to nahin hai
duniya ye
kisi kaam ki duniya to nahin hai

farmaane lagey dekh ke wo
dil ka tadapnaa
farmaane lagey dekh ke wo
dil ka tadapnaa
hai dard
magar itna ziyaada to nahin hai
hai dard
magar itna ziyaada to nahin hai

parwaana ghazal aaj teri
kar gayi jaadu
parwaana ghazal aaj teri
kar gayi jaadu
ye faiz usi mast nazar ka to nahin hai
ye faiz usi mast nazar ka to nahin hai

sach kehte ho tum
dil ka bharosa to nahin hai
mehfil mein machal jaaye
ab aisa to nahin hai
sach kehte ho tum
dil ka bharosa to nahin hai

सच कहते हो तुम
दिल का भरोसा तो नहीं है
सच कहते हो तुम
दिल का भरोसा तो नहीं है
महफिल में मचल जाये
अब ऐसा तो नहीं है
सच कहते हो तुम
दिल का भरोसा तो नहीं है

क्यूँ हटती नहीं पर्दे से
बेताब निगाहें
क्यूँ हटती नहीं पर्दे से
बेताब निगाहें
पर्दे के उधर
मेरी तमन्ना तो नहीं है
पर्दे के उधर
मेरी तमन्ना तो नहीं है

सब हुस्न के कायल हैं
मगर मेरी तरह से
सब हुस्न के कायल हैं
मगर मेरी तरह से
बे-देखे किसी ने तुम्हें
चाहा तो नहीं है
बे-देखे किसी ने तुम्हें
चाहा तो नहीं है

क्यूँ झुकने लगी आँखें
छलकने लगे सागर
क्यूँ झुकने लगी आँखें
छलकने लगे सागर
मयखाने के बाहर
कोई प्यासा तो नहीं है
मयखाने के बाहर
कोई प्यासा तो नहीं है

आ जाओ के हम अपना जहां
आप बसा लें
आ जाओ के हम अपना जहां
आप बसा लें
दुनिया ये किसी काम की
दुनिया तो नहीं है

फरमाने लगे देख के वो
दिल का तड़पना
फरमाने लगे देख के वो
दिल का तड़पना
है दर्द
मगर इतना ज़ियादा तो नहीं है
है दर्द
मगर इतना ज़ियादा तो नहीं है

परवाना गज़ल आज तेरी
कर गयी जादू
परवाना गज़ल आज तेरी
कर गयी जादू
ये फैज़ उसी मस्त नज़र का तो नहीं है
ये फैज़ उसी मस्त नज़र का तो नहीं है

सच कहते हो तुम
दिल का भरोसा तो नहीं है
महफिल में मचल जाये
अब ऐसा तो नहीं है
सच कहते हो तुम
दिल का भरोसा तो नहीं है

It is now a time tested experience. If I need to locate a real gem of a song for a particular artist, I simply search for one in completely obscure films that one may have just heard of. This technique has served well on many occasions in the past. And once again today. For this post, I wanted to locate a song that befits the memories of the artist. And as I checked out the films, I narrowed down on this one – ‘Dark Street’ from 1961. As I checked the song lists of this film, sure enough, hiding away here in this almost unknown film is this gem of a melody that is created by Dattaram.

Remembering Dattaram on the anniversary of his passing away today (8th June).

The series is moving very slow, and you must be thinking that I may have forgotten about it. Rest assured, I have not.

Badalte Huye Saathi (Episode 10th)(Mukesh sings with Lata Mangeshkar)
———————————————————————

I am of the firm opinion that sad songs are best sung by 1) Mukesh 2) Talat and 3) Hemant Kumar. Though I like Mohd. Rafi very much, he is not among the first 3 names for sad songs in my list. The pathos one finds in the voice of Mukesh in unmatched !
