Pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa

Posted on: July 31, 2010


Action movies, which were regarded as B and C grade stuff till 1960s had gone on to become A grade movies, and movies with non violent stories were pushed out of centrestage. But there were takers for these movies, which were then known as social movies of family movies.

“Swaami” (1979) was a social movie, which had some heart warming performances in it. Here is a lovely song from this movie.

This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Shabana Azmi. Majrooh Sultanpuri Amit Khanna is the lyricist and Rajesh Roshan, son of Roshan, is the music director of this song.

Here is this heart warming song from “Swaami” (1979).


song-Pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa (Swami) (1977) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Amit Khanna, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

aaa aaa
pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa
wo main gayi wo man gayaa
chunri kahe sun ri pawan
saawan laayaa ab ke sajan
din bhar mujhe yoon sataaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye
pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa
wo main gayi wo man gayaa
chunri kahe sun ri pawan
saawan laayaa ab ke sajan
din bhar mujhe yoon sataaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye

aashaa ki chhoti si naiyyaa
leke chali purwaiyyaa
dole dole jhumkaa bole
chupke se ye bhed khole
aajaayegaa aajaayegaa
pyaar se tum bulaanaa

pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa
wo main gayi wo man gayaa
chunri kahe sun ri pawan
saawan laayaa ab ke sajan
din bhar mujhe yoon sataaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye

aayi bahaaren simatke
kahne lagin wo lipatke
chori chori chalo gori
thaame huye bainyyaa mori
mil jaayegaa mil jaayegaa
tumko wahi deewaanaa

pal bhar mein ye kyaa ho gayaa
wo main gayi wo man gayaa
chunri kahe sun ri pawan
saawan laayaa ab ke sajan
din bhar mujhe yoon sataaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye
un bin ab to rahaa nahin jaaye

This song brings back memories. One of my older sisters used to love this song and sing it all the time. It was not as famous as “ka karoon sajni” but is a nice song in its own way.

The songs were popular in their own way.

Atul, since it has been brought up before, if I am not mistaken this is a Southern production. From the first frame on, I recognized Tamil nadu in the backdrop. (Well so I checked and wiki says Jaya Chakravorthy–Hema’s mom, is the producer–Jayasarathy productions).
I was also wondering if this is Calcutta–in the end I settled on Tamil nadu (haven’t seen the movie–it is supposed ot be set in Calcutta).

You are right that it was a production of Hema Malini’s mom.

yes the movie is supposed to be based on a Bengali story.

Yes, that is true.

‘Swami’ is based on Sarat Chandra Chatterjee’s story of the same name. Apparently the Salman Khan-Aishwarya Rai starrer from Sanjay Leela Bhansali, ‘Hum dil de chuke sanam’ was based on this. In a toss-up between the two, this is by far much much better.

[SPOILER] I understand that the film’s ending is quite different from the book’s which is interesting–early 20th century Bengal was apparently much more progressive than 1970s Hindi cinema! Even so, this is a lovely little film and the ending, in my opinion, quite credible given that it was Girish Karnad vis-a-vis Vikaram :-)–love Girish Karnad. [END SPOILER].

Understated and beautifully authentic in how it portrayed the rural/peri-urban Bengal of the 70s. For instance, there’s this bit here in the film where she’s making a ‘mala’ of little white flowers, called ‘sheuli’ in Bengal, wonderfully fragrant and generally collected early in the morning when the dew’s still fresh on the grass to make the ‘mala’ for the morning puja.

The other film Basu Chatterjee made with Shabana, again set in Bengal, was ‘Apne Paraye’ which was very good too. Don’t know if you’ve uploaded any of the songs from it Atul. I remember one picturized on Amol Palekar, again sung by Yesudas, being rather lovely–‘Sham rang ranga re’.

Chatterjee didn’t have much luck with the films he made with the two superstars–‘Manzil’ with AB and ‘Chakravyuha’ with Rajesh and yet both were easily among their best efforts, in my opinion, except that the latter went off the rails a bit towards the end. And again characterized by lovely music.

Sorry for hogging up your comments space. I did so enjoy Basu Chatterjee’s films but unfortunately he couldn’t stick it out from the absymal mid 80s in Hindi cinema and veered off to Bengali. Am not aware how he fared there though.

Thanks for the details. There is no limitation on the number of words on a comment. 😀 Your comment is highly informative and it helps us understand and appreciate the movie and its songs better.

Suhan, thanks, so that is what “shewli”looks like. I thought that was jasmine. We have a Bengali friend whose name is Shewli so I’ve been wondering what it looked like.
And this also answers my question–this is Bengal. I remember the rooftop view in Coimbatore when I visited once was exaclty like this.

Sheuli, or shiuli is also known as ”night-flowering jasmine” and parijaat in Hindi. Its flowers open at dusk and fall by dawn. It’s very closely related to the mythology surrounding Krishna, hence important to Vaishnav cultures.

Amit Khanna wrote the lyrics for this song, not “Majrooh Sultanpuri”

In the academic year 1978-79, when I was in 4th year BE, at engineering college in Manipal, South Kanara, my friends and I went to see a Malayalam film, titled, “Avalude Ravukal” meaning “Her Nights”. It was about the life of a teenage prostitute and her milieu, and considered one of the boldest movies of those days.
The title song, “Avalude Ravukal” अवळूडे रावुकळ, sung by S. Janaki, has this very tune.
