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

Meri aan Bhagwaan

Posted on: June 16, 2011


“Toofaan Aur Diyaa” (1956) as the name suggests is the fight of a figurative diyaa (lamp) against toofaan (storm) – sort of like a David vs Goliath fight, so to say.

This movie has songs appropriate to the theme of the movie. I have in fact already discussed three songs from this movie including the iconic title song of this movie viz. Nirbal ki ladaayi balwaan se .

Here is another song from this movie. It is a song where the nirbal aka diya aka a young boy is beseeching the Almighty to come to his rescue.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and she had modulated her voice nicely to sound like the voice of a kid. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vasant Desai.

Any idea who is the kid lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice ?
PS-The kid is Satish Vyas. I thank Sudhir ji for this information.


Song-Meri aan Bhagwaan (Toofaan Aur Diyaa) (1956) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Vasant Desai

Lyrics

meri aan Bhagwaan
meri aan Bhagwaan
kan kan se ladi hai to
tujhse bhi aaj ladegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan

dekh apnon kaa dukh jo chhupaaoge mukh
to aapas ki raad badhegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan

hamne to sunaa hai badon ke mukh se
apne baalakon se tumko bhi pyaar hai
hamne to sunaa hai badon ke mukh se
apne baalakon se tumko bhi pyaar hai
phir kyun bhoolte ho sabke pitaa
phir kyun bhoolte ho sabke pitaa
kuchh hamaaraa bhi tumpe adhikaar hai
kuchh hamaaraa bhi tumpe adhikaar hai
ladkhadaate hain paanv
ladkhadaate hain paanv aur dekh rahe tum
kyaa ye naiyyaa bhanwar mein adegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan
meri aan Bhagwaan
kan kan se ladi hai to
tumse bhi aaj ladegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan

meri palkon kaa tod kinaaraa
lagi bahne jo aansuon ki dhaaraa
meri palkon kaa tod kinaaraa
lagi bahne jo aansuon ki dhaaraa
teri dharti bahegi teraa ambar bahegaa
bah jaaygaa aasan tumhaaraa
meri sun ke Bhagwaan
meri sun ke Bhagwaan toone diyaa nahin dhyaan
to jabaan meri zid pe chadhegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan
meri aan Bhagwaan
kan kan se ladi hai to
tumse bhi aaj ladegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri baat tumhen rakhni padegi
meri aan Bhagwaan

Atul ji,

The child actor on whom this song is picturized is Satish Vyas. In the movie he plays the role of Sadanand, a school going boy who has lost his father, and has the burden of providing for his family. The storyline is about the difficulties he faces, and the determination and faith with which he overcomes them.

Till now I have viewed and listened a number of songs on this most entertaining and informative blog relating to the Indian cinema of yester-years. I have deliberately not mentioned it as ‘Bollywood’ not only that it is unethical to call something by its imitated name but also because several songs pertaining to the movies made in eastern and southern states of India have also been discussed herein. Incidentally, now that ‘Bombay’ is now ‘Mumbai’ why shouldn’t we have now ‘Mollywood’ in place of ‘Bollywood’. In any case, the present song ‘Meri aan Bhagwaan’ is one of the songs which has particularly attracted my attention for its superb quality in all aspects. It is amazing to note that the whole song of 3.29 minute duration has been completed in just 13 or 14 shots and the main shots rendered by the child artist Satish Vyaas as first, second and third stanzas are as long as 41, 45 and 42 seconds, respectively. He has faltered not even once and one can never fail to observe that his facial expressions are perfectly in tune with the lyrics at any given point of time, be these of praying, complaining, expressing anger, revolting, demanding, warning or of submission. In between, a couple of shots showing his curious inspection of the critical patient in the hospital ward have also been incorporated. Vasant Desai’s composition and Geeta Dutt’s voice so peculiarly transformed to suit an angry boy in distress over the seeming ruthlessness of God have in their own way added to the overall quality of this number. I doubt if such kind of perfection can be achieved today despite all kinds of electronic, computer and other advanced technologies available to our film and TV industry as well as this and that kind of awards and rewards so lavishly bestowed upon the ‘artists’. I may be corrected in my assertions that in the present times this song with such professional perfection would have been completed in not less than a hundred shots. Anyway, thanks to Mr. Atulji that I have not only refreshed the memory of this exquisite song but have also been able to give out my views about it.
