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

In hawaaon mein in fizaaon mein

Posted on: March 6, 2011


This article is written by Raja, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor of write ups to this blog.

When I was a young boy I never quite understood why a movie was often referred to with the director’s name attached to it. For example, people would talk about Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand or Bawarchi or Shakti Samanta’s Aradhana. For me these were movies of Rajesh Khanna first and foremost. Yet they would invariably be attached to the director, as if he owned the movie.

I would also wonder why in a typical movie credits flow, the last name would always be the director’s name. Often with the title music reaching a crescendo at this point in time, as if to state that this is where the center of gravity of the film lies.

When I grew a little older and realized a little more about what directing a movie involves, I developed a lot of respect for it. I could begin to understand that while everybody plays a role in the making of a film, it is the director who brings it all together and importantly, it is the style of direction, the way a director approaches his subject, his nuances – all this that can easily make or break a film.

Without making any claims to being a discerning movie-watcher, I can now safely say that – after seeing hundreds of movies over the years – I have developed a fondness for some directors more than others. I can now see why Bimal Roy was so highly rated. I love the suspense movies of Vijay Anand, I like the simple and yet touching style of Hrishida, I like Raj Khosla’s films a lot too.

And I absolutely love BR Chopra’s films. Not just the ones he directed but even those he produced, whether directed personally by him or not.

In my younger days, I’d seen a few BR Chopra films like Naya Daur and Kanoon but not really made a connection of any sort. More recently, and especially after seeing Sadhna (which is one of my alltime favourite films), I made it a point to see more BR Chopra.

What I began realizing about him is that he made not just socially relevant films but he dared to challenge society with his films. Whether it was Ek Hi Raasta (widow remarriage) or Sadhna (a prostitute seeking to live in a “respectable” household) or Dhool Ka Phool (story of a child born out of wedlock, from the child’s point of view) or Kanoon (commentary on integrity of the judicial system) or Dharamputra (Hindu-Muslim tensions around independence/partition) or Gumraah (adultery), BR Chopra always seemed to be showing society a mirror.

The other thing I liked about BR Chopra was that his movies invariably had lovely songs. Many of them had hard-hitting songs too (like “aurat ne janam diya” in Sadhna or “tu na hindu banega” in Dhool Ka Phool). Lyrics in his movies were often provided by my favourite lyricist, Sahir Ludhianvi. And the music was often by Ravi.

The song I am discussing here is from Gumrah (1963) starring Ashok Kumar, Mala Sinha and Sunil Dutt. The movie was a big hit and the songs were big hits too, almost every one of them. Some movies can claim to be one big song extravaganza – the names of Madhumati, Sangam and Taj Mahal easily come to mind. Gumraah may not seem to quite belong at this level but to me, as somebody who loves every single song in this movie, it does.

Most of the songs of this film are sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Now Mahendra Kapoor was one singer who BR Chopra as producer and Ravi as music director were both very comfortable using. (Much later in life, Mahendra Kapoor would sing the title lines for BR Chopra’s blockbuster TV series Mahabharat).

In Gumraah (as in Humraaz a few years later), I find Mahendra Kapoor just outstanding.

Now throughout his career Mahendra Kapoor had to face criticism from all sides, as his voice was constantly compared with Rafi saab and it was felt he was not a patch on Rafi saab. Especially OP Nayyar, who used Mahendra Kapoor when he had a rift with Rafi saab, was scathing in his criticism of Mahendra Kapoor.

I think this criticism is grossly unfair – each singer is different and it is unfair to compare two singers and rubbish one of them in the process. Anyway, Ravi knew how to get the best out of Mahendra Kapoor – and the result is there for all to see in films like Gumraah and Humraaz.

So here is “in hawaon mein, in fizaon mein” from Gumraah.

There are two versions of this song. A happy version when Sunil Dutt and Mala Sinha are expressing their love for each other. And a sad version when Mala Sinha’s changed circumstances have compelled her to turn away from Sunil Dutt and he reminisces the good times, wondering where it had all gone wrong.

It is a lovely song sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. To Sahir saab’s lyrics of course. And to Ravi’s extremely pleasant composition.

I hope you enjoy this song too.

Happy version:

kuchh to keh len bhoolne waale
ek puraani yaad bulaaye
ek puraani yaad bulaaye
ek toota ikraar pukaare
aaja aaja re
tujhko mera pyaar pukaare ho

O ho ho
