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

Tumhe husn deke Khudaa ne sitamgar banaayaa

Posted on: July 27, 2010


This post is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie songs and a regular visitor of this blog

There is rarely an excuse required in Hindi movies for a song. Birthday or wedding celebration parties (with the ubiquitous piano), the “tribal” dance scenes, club dances, hero-heroine scenes out in beautiful natural surroundings, the pining scenes and the mujra scenes – these are all well-established occasions waiting for a song to happen.

And then there was the qawwali. In recent times, perhaps in tune with “modernization” of Indian society, the qawwali seems to have gone out of fashion in Hindi cinema. But at least till the 1970s, it was standard fare. Every other movie would have a qawwali scene – whether it was a competition between two parties or just one party presenting to an audience. Many qawwalis have achieved legendary status in Hindi movies. For example, those in Barsaat ki Raat and Mughal-e-Azam.

The film Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai (1963) is no exception to the norm. It has a qawwali – and even by qawwali standards – this one is extremely pleasant to listen to. All the usual elements of a qawwali are there – a competition between parties, lovely music with the trademark harmonium and tabla. And of course the synchronized clapping. 😀

But wait –there’s more. Yes, much more. Oh, there’s a huge surprise here!

Usually the qawwaals in a movie are either “specialist qawwaals” (not otherwise known to be actors) or the main characters in the movie, joining in a qawwali scene.

But this movie makes a departure from this approach. And how?

The main actors in the movie are Pradeep Kumar and Geeta Bali – and they are only guests on the occasion.
The qawwaals are not “specialist qawwaals” either. If you look closely (and even if you don’t) the faces look quite familiar. As if you have seen them before in other movies. In mainstream roles . Like maybe a hero, or a heroine or a famous character actor.

And you must have!

Let’s just say, when you have early 1960s Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Kumkum, Shyama, Om Prakash and Bhagwan together in a qawwali scene – in a movie where this is their sole purpose of existence – you can safely say that the song has to be contending for the title of “mother of all item numbers” !

Quite a casting coup – and in a movie that is even otherwise delightful, this item number is absolutely the icing on the cake.Long before item numbers became common in Hindi cinema, this movie cracked it.

Not that the song needed such eye-candy. It is a delightful song in its own right. But when such stalwarts get together to present it to you, you cannot but hold on to your seat and drink it all in, moment by moment.

So, sit back and don’t change the channel (or whatever the equivalent in online surfing is). Just relax and enjoy this qawwali, presented to you by a rare combo of protagonists in one setting.

Loved writing up the post for this.
LOVE this song.
I can imagine that it must have taken a lot of time and effort to write up the lyrics, though.

It is these type of songs that stretch you to the limit and, in a way, truly demonstrate your passion and dedication to what you are doing here on the blog, Atul.

Thanks for coming up with this beauty – that too so fast.

I must have listened to this song some twenty times in order to get the lyrics right, and considering that the song is over 10 minutes long, it means about 200 minutes, i.e over three hours. In this time one can do the lyrics of five-six “normal” length songs.

This qawwali contains lots and lots of words, nearly 800 words. One can realise how much 800 words are by looking at this post. One can keep scrolling on and on to reach to the end of the lyrics.

Qawwalis are the longest songs in Bollywood movies and writing down their lyrics really separates a passionate song lover from a casual song lover. And interestingly enough, this is not the longest qawwali that I have posted. That distinction goes to the epic qawwali of “Barsaat ki raat”.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! That goes for Raja’s write-up, as well as Atul’s painstaking writing down of the lyrics, and of course, for the song itself, with Shammi Kapoor, Shashi Kapoor, Bhagwan, and Om Prakash with Shyama and Kumkum. Who could possibly ask for more?

Writing about this song was indeed a labour of love for me as well as Raja, who readily agreed to write the comments about this song.

And this song is indeed a fantastic song. And interestingly enough, I had not heard this qawwaali before. 😀

tell me is this the only time Shammi Kapoor and Shashi kapoor acted together? and was this only a guest appearance in this movie? and is this the only time Shammi Kapoor acted with his wife Geetha Bali?
my god i ve given you a question paper!!

Thanks Raja and Atul for posting this! It is a rare treat indeed.

@peevesie’s mom: it’s the only time they appeared together when Shammi and Shashi were this young, for sure, but Shammi was in several movies opposite Geeta in the 1950s and she also did a guest appearance (a dance) in his film Mujrim.

If I remember correctly, Shammi Kapoor was not a guest in the movie.

And, search on google baba resulted in following movie of Shammi Kapoor & Geeta Bali (there must be more):

Miss Coca Cola
Rangin Raaten
Coffee House
Mohar

And, cannot recall any movie that featured both Shammi & Shashi Kapoor. I guess Ajooba (starring Amitabh) comes close as Shammi Kapoor had a role and movie was produced by Shashi Kapoor/Feroz Khan.

Hi. This is my first visit to your blog, and thanks to my current assignment that I stumbled upon it. It is indeed marvellous.

As for the song, the biggest reason why it exists is, when distributors were being shown trial runs of the film for them to pick it up for their respective territories, no one wanted to touch it. The Producer (Surinder Kapoor, for Geeta Bali’s production company Amar Chhaya), and the Director, Kedar Kapoor, decided to add a qawwali featuring the most popular stars of that time. The idea was to add that element of surprise and excitement so that the distributors found the chance to lure a sizeable audience into the cinema theatres,

My source is a gentleman who worked in the production department of Amar Chhaya since its inception till 1975. I deem myself lucky to have heard this story right from the horse’s mouth. 🙂
