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

Ham haal e dil sunaayenge suniye ke na suniye

Posted on: August 16, 2010


These days, I am posting the songs from Madhumati. Here is another song from this movie that was missing from this blog.

This song is picturised as a mujra, and the movie version is only one minute long. The courtesan had only just started her performance that Dlip Kumar comes in. As soon as the lady looks at her, she stops in her tracks, and the mujra ends there itself. That way, Dilip Kumar violates the basic principle of Hindi movie songs which states that a singer will not be stopped unless he/she has finished her singing. That is how we find disguise songs, love songs, etc allowed to run their course even when the baddies are lurking nearby. Our hero does what even villains do not do, viz cause an abrupt end to a promising song.

Those who heard this song only on the movie missed out on a gem of a song. Fortunately , this song was released separately on records as well where the song was full three minutes long. And this song is worth miles to go and listen to. What imaginative (yet deceptively simple) lyrics by Shailendra, what lovely music by Salil Chaudhary, and what superb rendition by Mubarak Begam. Here is this fantastic mujra song from “Madhumati” (1958).

Incidentally, Mubarak Begam was unlettered. She would commit the entire song to memory and sing from memory. That makes her a singer with amazing memory, because shehas sung some extremely high class songs in her brief but glittering career.

The picturisation shows Pran simultaneously creating smoke rings and watching the mujra. The mujra ends too abruptly and I am unable to see who the courtesan was. Was she Vyjyanti Mala herself was someone else ? Can anyone throw a light on this ?

Song-Ham haal e dil sunaayenge (Madhumati) (1958) Singer-Mubarak Begam, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

aaa aaa aaa
tumhaaraa dil mere dil ke baraabar ho nahin saktaa
aaa aaa aaa
tumhaaraa dil mere dil ke baraabar ho nahin saktaa
wo sheeshaa ho nahin saktaa ye patthar ho nahin saktaa

ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge suniye ki na suniye
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge suniye ki na suniye
sau baar muskuraayenge suniye ki na suniye
suniye ki na suniye
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge

rahegaa ishq teraa khaaq mein milaa ke mujhe
huye hain ibtadaa-e-ranj intahaa ke mujhe
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge suniye ki na suniye
sau baar muskuraayenge suniye ki na suniye
suniye ki na suniye
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge

ajab hai aah meri naamdaag (?) hai meraa
tamaam shahar jalaa doge kyaa jalaa ke mujhe
aaa aaa
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge suniye ki na suniye
sau baar muskuraayenge suniye ki na suniye
suniye ki na suniye
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge suniye ki na suniye
ham haal-e-dil sunaayenge

the mukhda of this song may be written by shailendra but antara is “taken” from famous ghazal of 19th century great urdu poet DAAG DEHLVI .
“AJAB HAI AAH MERI,NAAM ‘DAAG’ HAI MERA
TAMAAM SHAHAR JALA DOGE KYA JALA KE MUJHE “

ALSO THE FIRST LINES BEFORE THE SONG STARTS “TUMHARA DIL MERE DIL KE….” ALSO WRITTEN BY DAAG DEHLVI.
ANOTHER THING WORTH MENTIONING HERE IS THAT THE SHER OF THE FIRST PART OF MUKHDA “RAHEGA ISHQ TERA KHAAQ MEIN MILA…” WAS ALSO USED BY SHAILENDRA IN THESTART OF SONG “AA BHI JA…” IN TEESRI KASAM

It must be a “tip of the hat” to poet Daag Dehlvi, from Shailendra.

Do not know who the courtesan was but it was not Vyjayanthimala. She plays Madhumati who is “no more”, thanks to Ugra Narayan (Pran) and Anand babu(Dilip) comes in the room to confront his boss, Ugra Narayan.

Regarding the lyrics, I feel it is not ‘sau bar muskuraayenge’, it sounds more like ‘sau bar ye doharayenge’
