Hai isi mein pyaar ki aabroo

Posted on: March 15, 2010


I was under the impression that I had posted quite a few songs from “Anpadh” (1962). I just realised that I had posted just one song from this movie.

Here is another song from this movie. Like the earlier posted song, this song too is a ghazal sung by Lata and picturised on Mala Sinha. Raja Mehdi Ali Khan is the lyricist and Madan Mohan is the music director.

When Naushad heard these two songs on Radio, he found out who the music director was, and then sought an appointment with Madan Mohan. When he met Madan Mohan, he told Madan Mohan that these two ghazals of “Anpadh” were equal to his (Naushad’s) entire volume of musical compositions. Such was the high opinion of Naushad about Madan Mohan’s compositions in this movie.

Here is this song. Some half a century later, listening to this song continues to be a divine experience.

Song-Hai isi mein pyaar ki aabroo (Anpadh) (1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, MD- Madan Mohan

Lyrics

hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru
wo zafaa karen main wafaa karoon
jo wafaa bhi kaam na aa sake
to wohi kahen ke main kyaa karoon
hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru

mujhe gham bhi unkaa azeez hai
ke unhin ki di huyi cheez hai
mujhe gham bhi unkaa azeez hai
ke unhin ki di huyi cheez hai
ke unhin ki di huyi cheez hai
yahi gham hai ab meri zindagi
ise kaise dil se judaa karoon
hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru

jo na ban sake main wo baat hoon
jo na khatm ho main wo raat hoon
jo na ban sake main wo baat hoon
jo na khatm ho main wo raat hoon
jo na khatm ho main wo raat hoon
ye likhaa hai mere naseeb mein
yoonhi shammaa banke jalaa karoon
hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru

na kisi ke dil ki hoon aarzoo
na kisi nazar ki hoon zustju
na kisi ke dil ki hoon aarzoo
na kisi nazar ki hoon zustju
na kisi nazar ki hoon zustju
main wo phool hoon jo udaas ho
na bahaar aaye to kyaa karoon
hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru
wo zafaa karen main wafaa karoon
jo wafaa bhi kaam na aa sake
to wohi kahen ke main kyaa karoon
hai isi mein pyaar ki aabru

Madan Mohan excelled himself in the songs of this movie. I remember loving them even in those days, and that was before I knew about appreciating good music.

Thanks for the song, Atul!

In this gazal, the heroine expresses her anguish after being rejected by her husband as an illiterate adult. Later on, when he helps her learn, she sings the happy gazal Aap Ki Nazaron Ne Samajha. These two masterpieces with contrasting moods are the finest examples of the talents of the composer, the singer and the poet.

By the way, I could be wrong but I recall reading that Naushad’s remarks about trading his entire musical output for the two gazals came after Madan Mohan’s untimely death at age 51. His family felt that his rivals were not as gracious when he was alive. The lack of recognition is believed to have made the genius composer bitter and driven him to drink heavily and to his demise.

Naushad had acknowledged this fact publicly in a function in 1962 itself.

Here is what Naushad said in a vishesh Jaimala programme
“Main ek baar radio sun raha tha, usmein bahut hi dilkash ghazal aa rahi thi, film thi Anpadh, ghazal ke bol the “Hai isi mein pyar ki aabroo”. Maine music director ka naam pataa kiya, marhoom Madan Mohan sahab. Maine unse appointment liya aur unke ghar pahunch gaya. Maine unse kaha ki main yeh kehne aaya hoon ki aapki Anpadh film ki yeh do ghazlen mujhe bahut pasand aayi, aapke yeh do ghazlen ek taraf aur mere saare gaane ek taraf. Yeh sunkar Madan Mohan mere gale lagkar rone lage, kahaa ki aap mujhse kaafi senior hain, main to aapka junior hoon. Maine kahaaki naheen, jo sach hai woh sach hai, aur main yeh sabke saamne bhi kahoonga. Kuch dino baad ek gramophone company ke jalse mein press aur poori public ke saamne maine yahi baat kahi. “

Thank you for your detailed update. I always learn more from some one knowledgeable like you.

Incidentally, there are different versions of this story out there. For example, here is an excerpt from an essay on Madan Mohan by Dr Narsinha Kamath:
“Also when MD Naushad heard Madan Mohan’s 3 Lata Ghazals “Yun Hasaraton Ke Daag”, “Unko Ye Shikayat Hai”, “Jaana The Hum Se Dur” from the Film : Adalat (1958), he expressed that these Madan Mohan compositions were so brilliant that he would like to exchange all his tunes just for these 3 Ghazals.”

How did two ghazals from Anpadh become three from Adalat?

The two ghazals ” Yuh hasarato ke daag” and “Unko yeh shikayat hai” are definitely from film Adalat filmed on Nargis. 3rd ghazal ” Jana tha hum se door” is from film Haqeeqat filmed on Priya. This film was produced by Chetan Anand just after the Chinese aggression of 1962 under the banner of Navketan.In this movie there was a a slow song sung by Mohamed Rafi ” Mai yeh soch ke uske daar se chala that ke woh rok legi mana legi mujko” I would love to hear this song again Atul.
Naushad always held Madan Mohan in high esteem and called him King of Ghazals. There was only 3 years of difference of enterance of both in film world music. Naushad broke in with Ratan in 1947 and Madan Mohan with Ada and Ankhein in 1951.All 3 were gems .Madan Mohan and Jaikishen both were heavy drinkers of alcohol and died of cirrhosis of liver.Both were equally famed so Madan Mohan did not die of lack of fame.

Dr. Vyas: I appreciate your remarks. As I noted earlier, it is helpful to hear from knowledgeable individuals. I agree with Atul about the Naushad-Madan Mohan exchange.

I do have two observations about your comments.

First, the song Jana Tha Hum Se Door is from Adalat (not from Haqeeqat).

Second, here is what Madan Mohan’s son said about his father:
“It may sound very strange but it’s the truth that my father did not win any award. At that time there was only one award, Filmfare Awards. He was nominated four times but didn’t win. What I’m trying to say is that a person gets a little bitter, rightly or wrongly so. But he then took to drinking, got a little frustrated and when he finally won the National Award for the film Dastak, he didn’t want to go and get it.”

Almost every song of Anpadh is a gem – and I am happy that now they are being posted by Atul (better late than never 🙂 ).
This is a brilliant song.
