Jhoom rahaa hai mera man

Posted on: March 29, 2011


“Aage Badho” (1947) is a forgotten movie from the past. It had Dev Anand, Khursheed,Vasant Thengdi and Kusum Deshpande in lead roles. Chances are, other names were the lead actors and Dev Anand, then a new comer could be a lesser actor in this movie.

There are so many movie personalities called Khursheed who were active those dyas. Hopefully this song helps us gaining some knowledge about one of them. This Khursheed was an actor-singer. Here she sings this song and acts in it too.

She plays a girl of marriageable age. “Ladke waale” (the would be groom’s family) are due to arrive to “see” her. Knowing this, she is feeling joyous (“Man mein laddoo phhoot rahe hain” is an appropriate hindi saying to express this kind of you when one is is this situation). She expresses her feelings in this song.

At the end of the song, she is brought down to earth with a resounding thud by her mother. “Is this the time to sing and dance ? Boy’s folks are due to arrive any time. Do you want to appear before them looking like a beggar?” She demands which elicits a feeble-” nahin maan” reply from the daughter. It is a wonderful picturisation of a wonderful song.

Her feelings are expressed superbly in this song, and the lyricist, someone called Amar Verma has done a great job. Any idea who this Amar Verma was ? Hardly any information is available about him.

Music is composed by Sudhir Phadke.

jhoom rahaa hai mera man
dekho jhoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa hai mera man

madhur madhur man ka sitaar boley re

jaise saawan mein thandi bayaar doley
jaise saawan mein thandi bayaar doley
ho
bayaar doley
haan
kaun meri aankhon mein pyaar gholey re
kaun meri aankhon mein pyaar gholey re
haan
unke man bhaaun unhen apna banaaun re
unke man bhaaun unhen apna banaaun re
aaj madhur matwaalaa man hauley hauley ghoom rahaa
hauley hauley ghoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa hai mera man
dekho jhoom rahaa

jhoom rahaa

sapnon mein koi mere chhup chhup ke aaye
chhup chhup ke aaye
koi chhup chhup ke aaye
jeewan ke jhurmut mein baansuri bajaaye
koyi baansuri bajaaye
nainon se nain miley
nainon se nain miley
nainaa sharmaaye
nainon se nain miley
nainaa sharmaaye
more nainaa sharmaaye
aaj mera bholaa man kiske charan choom rahaa
kiske charan choom rahaa
jhoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa hai mera man
dekho jhoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa
jhoom rahaa
ho ho ho
ho ho

Atul ji,

So a little more details about this movie and the song. This movie was considered very much ahead of its times, because it dramatized a very delicate theme, that of widow remarriage. That explains the title of the movie. In 1947, this was too progressive a theme for the society of that time.

Dev Anand is indeed the lead actor / hero, named Udai, in the movie, opposite to Khursheed, who plays the role of Sarla. The other two names i.e. Vasant Thengdi and Kusum Deshpande play the roles of Sarla’s parents, Badri Prasad and Jamuna. Jamuna is the step mother to Sarla (in fact Badri Prasad’s third wife). Badri Prasad is an “aiyaash” (playboy) type person, which explains his multiple marriages, and his ongoing extra-marital flings.

Sarla’s marriage is fixed. This song is right in beginning of the movie, just after the credits. The wedding takes place, but a fireworks accident happens on the evening of the wedding, after the ceremony is solemnized, and the newlywed groom dies in this accident. Sarla is a widow, even before her doli leaves her home. After this accident, her step mother treats her even worse. In fact the step mother’s brother makes advances towards Sarla; she resists, and in turn is blamed for trying to seduce him. Sarla is shocked, she runs away and tries to commit suicide. Udai (Dev Anand) saves her from the river, and brings her to his village and home. Udai is person of progressive thinking. He takes care of her, and he encourages Sarla to think of getting married again.

The rest of the story is about the relationship that develops between Sarla and Udai, plus a complex narrative of tragic sequences; but eventually ending with “happily ever after”.

The child artist in this song is Baby Koreena. I cannot identify the old person who plays the role of the servant.

Regarding Khursheed herself; the actress – singer Khursheed Bano started her film career in 1931 and worked in Hindi movies till 1948, whereafter she migrated to Pakistan. She passed away in 2001 in Karachi.

There are many wonderful songs credited to her voice, especially “Panchhi Baawra, Chaand Se Preet Lagaaye”, “Koyaliya Kaahe Boley Re”, “Badariya Baras Gayee Us Paar”, and many more. She was the heroine (Tani) in the 1943 musical “Tansen” opposite to KL Saigal. This movie was the high point of her career, with many wonderful songs like “Ghataa Ghan Ghor Ghor”, “Morey Baalapan Ke Saathi”, “Ab Raaja Bhaye Morey Baalam” etc.

Thanks for this information. And you are right, Khursheed has sung some nice songs. How wonderful it will be if she could have a century of her songs in the blog.
