We are used to larger than life portrayal of characters in movies, which bear little resemblance to ordinary real lives that most of us lead. Sometimes,we get to watch some down to earth movies, that tell the tale of our own lives, rather than that of supermen and superwomen.

Rajnigandha (1974) was a heart warming movie, one of first low budget alternate cinema movies in 1970s, which tried to tell real life stories with actors who looked like real life characters.The Indian audience were not matured enough to take to such movies in a big way, but it is so nice to note that connoisseurs of quality cinema appreciated this movie. This movie won the filmfare award for best movie, and one of its songs won the national award for best song of the year. Ironically, that best song of the year was not in the list of most popular Binaca geetmala songs of the year. Does not matter.Any one who loves good music cannot but appreciate this wonderful song.

The title song of the movie (the topic of our discussion here) however, did make it to the Binaca Geetmala finals of 1975. Just listen to the voice of Lata, lyrics of Yogesh, and the music of Salil Chowdhary. And while you are watching the video, look at the expressions of Vidya Sinha. You could well be watching the expressions of a girl next door, that is how real life like was the movie and the picturisation, and that too, without making it boring for the audience.

And did I tell you that this was a heroine oriented movie in an era when heroines were presented like a decoration piece in most mainstream movies? A must see movie. For the time being, though, you can do with watching this video and listening to the audio.

The songs in this movie are not sung by the actors, rather the songs were used as part of the background music, (they express the feelings of the characters without the characters lip synching them) which was another new thing for Bollywood movies. Another off beat thing about this song was the use of textbook Hindi words, when the trend was to use textbook Urdu words. And the music included the Indian classical musical instrument-sitar prominently. All in all, it is a gem of a song, that has managed to remain hidden from the music lovers.

Song: Rajnigandha phool tumhaare (Rajnigandha) (1974) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Salil Chowdhary

Lyrics

haan yoon hee mehke preet piyaa ki mere anuraagee mann mein

rajneegandha phool tumhaare, mehke yoon hee jeewan mein
haan yoon hee mehke preet piyaa ki mere anuraagee man mein

adhikaar ye jab se saajan kaa har dhadakan par maana maine
adhikaar ye jab se saajan kaa har dhadakan par maana maine
mai jab se un ke saath bandhee, ye bhed tabhee jaana maine
kitana sukh hain bandhan mein

rajaneegandha phool tumhaare, mehke yoon hee jeewan mein
haan yoon hee mehke preet piyaa ki mere anuraagee man mein

har pal meri in aankhon mein bas rahte hain sapne un ke
har pal meri in aankhon mein bas rahte hain sapne un ke
man kehtaa hain main rangon ki, ik pyaar bhari badlee ban ke
barasoon un ke aangan mein

rajneegandha phool tumhaare, mehke yoon hee jeewan mein
haan yoon hee mehke preet piyaa kee mere anuraagee man mein

Translation-

Your Rajnigandha flowers have brought fragrance to my life,
Yes,my darling’s love has brought fragrance to my love starved heart

Ever since I let my darling have a right to rule over my heart beats,
ever since I committed myself to him,
only then I realised how pleasant it is to be tied up like this.

Every moment of my life is spent dreaming about him,
my heart wills me to become a colour filled love saturated cloud and then go and shower all this love over his premises

हम्मम म्ममम म्ममम म्ममम म्ममम म्ममम
हम्मम म्ममम म्ममम म्ममम म्ममम
हाँ यूं ही महके प्रीत पिया की
मेरे अनुरागी मन में

रजनीगंधा फूल तुम्हारे महके यूं ही जीवन में
हाँ यूं ही महके प्रीत पिया की
मेरे अनुरागी मन में

अधिकार ये जब से साजन का
हर धड़कन पर माना मैंने
अधिकार ये जब से साजन का
हर धड़कन पर माना मैंने
मैं जब से उनके साथ बंधी
ये भेद तभी जाना मैंने
कितना सुख हैं बन्धन में
रजनीगंधा फूल तुम्हारे महके यूं ही जीवन में
हाँ यूं ही महके प्रीत पिया की
मेरे अनुरागी मन में

हर पल मेरी इन आँखों में
बस रहते हैं सपने उनके
हर पल मेरी इन आँखों में
बस रहते हैं सपने उनके
मन कहता है मैं रंगों की
इक प्यार भरी बदली बन के
बरसूँ उनके आँगन में

रजनीगंधा फूल तुम्हारे महके यूं ही जीवन में
हाँ यूं ही महके प्रीत पिया की
मेरे अनुरागी मन में

Hey Atul….noticed this “other” blog only now.
I am amazed at how prolific you are…and each article is so interesting that it is like Brian Lara’s batting. Prolific and majestic.

Very nice..this idea of a song-a-day. With the video, some background about the situation, full lyrics – in Hindi and translated into English.

Really, really nice. Keep it going.

And since it is a daily feature, I will be checking it out daily. 😉

The songs you have picked also are top-class.

Raja, I thought that I should quickly get my opinions on these songs posted, so that I and other likeminded people may be able to enjoy them. Full lyrics are something not available anywhere. English translation is my way of making the non-Hindi speakers aware of the gist of the song.

Agree. A real gem of a song.
