Durga Mata O sukh daataa

Posted on: October 17, 2010


Not all Hindi movies are made by big producers. There are many movies that are made by lesser producers with lesser names. Most of these movies, which are known as B and C grade movies, end up remaining unsung and unwatched as majority of such movie do not get proper exposure with the public.

Even these so called B and C grade movies of the past often managed to get A grade music in them. Take this C grade movie called “Tilasmi Duniya” (1946) for example. This movie is such an obscure movie that very little is known about this movie. The only information known about this movie is that this was a Jupiter Art Production, which was directed by A M Khan. The movie had S Kulkarni, Sarla Devi, Ansari, Madhukar Gupte,Shiraz and others in it.

Music of this movie is just as obscure as the movie itself and very little is known about the music. The only one song from this movie that I have been able to locate so far is a Durga Bhajan and it is quite a lovely song to listen to. This is sung by Sarla Devi and since she was in the cast as well, so it follows that the song is picturised on herself. The video of this movie is not available, of course. Sajjad Hussain is the music director, but so far I have not been able to find out the name of the lyricist of this movie.

PS-By now, we have far more knowledge about this and other songs of this movie, thanks to the reserch work by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh. Now we know that the lyricist of this song is Madhup Sharma. I thank Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh for this information.

On the occasion of Vijayadashami, here is this prayer to Durga Mata from this obscure movie called “Tilasmi Duniya” (1946).


Song-Durga mata O sukh daata (Tilasmi Duniya) (1946) Singer-Sarla Devi, Lyrics-Madhup Sharma, MD-Sajjad Hussain

Lyrics

Durga Mata
Durga Mata O sukh daata
Durga Mata O sukh daata
binti suno hamaar
binti suno hamaar
Durga Mata
Durga Mata O sukh daata
shakti di aur
gyaan diyaa hai
shakti di aur
gyaan diyaa hai
aage aur saamaan diyaa hai
vijay ka bhi vardaan diyaa hai
tumhi ho raakhan haar
vinti suno hamaar
vijay ka bhi vardaan diyaa hai
tumhi ho raakhan haar
vinti suno hamaar
Durga Mata
Durga Mata O sukh daata

bachte bachaate
ghaaow dil par
putra bhi jeewan path dayaa par (??)
tujh bin aas lagaaun kis par
bairi ho sansaar
bairi ho sansaar
bachte bachaate
ghaaow dil par
putra bhi jeewan path dayaa par (??)
tujh bin aas lagaaun kis par
bairi ho sansaar
bairi ho sansaar
Durga Mata
Durga Mata O sukh daata

jaadoo nagri ne sukh chheenaa
dil todaa to kyaa hai jeenaa
toot rahi hai man ki veenaa
ulajh rahen hain taar
vinti suno hamaar
jaadoo nagri ne sukh chheenaa
dil todaa to kyaa hai jeenaa
toot rahi hai man ki veenaa
ulajh rahen hain taar
vinti suno hamaar
Durga Mata
Durga Mata O sukh daata
Durga Mata O sukh daata
Durga Mata O sukh daata

Atul ji,

I also tried to search for the lyricist for this movie, but without success. However, there is a linked piece of information that is interesting, although cannot be called conclusive.

Three songs from the movie Tilasmi Duniya (1946) were duplicated as is in the 1947 historical titled Parshuram. The lyricist identified for the latter movie is Pt. Betaab. This particular song is not in this list of 3 songs, which is why I say that this evidence is not conclusive. The songs could have been reused based on some understanding, or it is possible that the songs for these two movies were penned by the same person. I will try to dig some more and send and update if I find something new.

5 1946 Tilasmi Duniya

1 mehman do ghadi ki,ae phool jawani teri-
2 holi phir se aa gayi ri-
3 rut aayi hai karke singaar-
4 durgamata o sukhdata-female voice,
5 mere laya mein pade kaise-
6 kya kahoon raat ki baat sakhi-
7 bache raho,hum nahin jaane-female voice
8 saiyan beiman hai saiyaan beiman-
9 chhed de man ke taar sajaniya-
10 majbooriyaan to dekho-

The song starts with a famous shlok of Maha Kavi Kalidas from Shyamala Dandakam “Manikya Veena Bhupalalayanti Madalasa Manjul ….”and then “Jai su Bhavani Jai Kalyani…
I request that this song be also covered in your blog

The singer of this song is Sarla Devi, not to be confused with the 1930s actress and singer Sarla Devi. The Sarla in Tilasmi Duniya was new to acting and this was her first movie. The actor S. Kulkarni was on loan from Prabhat films to Jupiter Art Pictures fro this film.
