Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Hamko hai pyaari hamaari galiyaan

Posted on: October 30, 2009


In Bollywood, if a child has to sing, then most of the time it is a female singer who gives playback for the child.I thought that a child singing for a child actor in Bollywood movies is a phenomenon that started in “Masoom” (1960) and later in “Andaz” (1971), but I find that I was wrong.

Just now I have stumbled upon a rare clip from a movie called “Basant” (1942). Here a child (Shanti Sudha Ghosh) sings for a child actor (Baby Mumtaz). P L Santoshi is the lyricist whereas Pannalal Ghosh, who later on became well known as a flute exponent, is the music director.

The singer in fact is the daughter of the music director and his singer wife Parul Ghosh.

And what about the kid on whom this song is picturised ? This kid, baby Mumtaz, then aged 9 is none other than the same person who was later on known as Madhubala !

Yes, this video clip has history written all over it.

So here is this rare gem from a forgotten movie called “Basant” (1942).

PS-It turns out that this song has two versions and the Shanti Sudha/Madhubala version is the second version of the song. The first version of the song is sung by Parul Ghosh and an unidentified voice. This version is picturised on Mumtaz Shanti and Suresh, with Ulhas urging them on.

Hamko hai pyaari hamaari galiyaan

What a treat to see Baby Mumtaz! thanks Atul 🙂

Now I have posted another song picturised on Baby Mumtaz from the same movie. It is even more of a treat.

This song had two versions in the film. The second version of the song was picturised on Mumtaz Shanti and Master Suresh. While I am not able to identify the female singer lip syncing for Master Suresh, Parul Ghosh lip syncs for Mumtaz Shanti

Video clip : http://youtu.be/OG7ooHzJIVc

Atul ji,

This song was sung by Baby Mumtaz on the screen version and a separate 78 RPM record was issued for this song in which that part was sung by Shanti Sudha Ghosh- daughter of Parul and Pannalal Ghosh. This record was issued by ORIENT label and shanti sudha’s name is mentioned on it. In 2010, S.Jairaman of RMIM had played this record in RMIM forum.
Shanti Sudha later married Flute expert Devendra Murdeshwar. She died of Cancer on 21-1-1975 at Bombay.

-AD

The version with Mumtaz Shanti is sang by Parul Ghosh and Suresh
