Ye pyaar bharaa dil hai muhabbat ka khazaanaa

Posted on: July 3, 2011

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

In the days before the 1930s, the theatre was the more powerful media for entertainment and creativity, more so than the silent movies. The Parsi theatre found its roots in India, during the 1850s, and grew in popularity and influence over the subsequent decades, The early decades of 1900s saw the growth of the Parsi theatre (or Parsi Thiyetar, as it was known in those times) in Bombay. Many stalwarts that we see in the vintage classic movies of 30s and 40s, got their feet wet on the stage productions of Parsi theatre.

One can recount the names of CS Nazir, Sohrab Modi, Prithviraj Kapoor, Chandramohan, Amrit Keshav Nayak, Fida Hussain, Gauhar, Patience Cooper, Seeta Devi and many others who graced the Hindi screen with their histrionics. And not just the players, Parsi theatre also contributed the material for numerous films that were made for the Hindi screen, including Indrasabha, Rustam Sohrab, Gul-e-Bakawali, Laila Majnu, Shirin Farhad, plus many other social and mythological plays, including many adaptations from Shakespeare. (For a very interesting write up on Parsi theatre, check out the link Parsi theatre)

Agha Hashr Kashmiri is a name that is woven into the existence of Parsi theater. Renowned as the Shakespeare of Urdu Literature, Agha Kashmiri was born in 1879 in Amritsar. He had a deep interest for literature, and started with translating many Urdu and Persian works of literature and theatre into English. He came to Bombay and got associated with the Parsi theatre movement, as a playwright. One of his most popular creations is Yahudi Ki Ladki. This was one of the most successful plays in Parsi theatre history, and in subsequent years, this play has been made to the Hindi screen no less than 4 times, variously named as Yahudi ki Ladki (1933), Yahudi ki Beti (1956), Yahudi ki Ladki (1957) and Yahudi (1958). Of these, the 1933 version starring KL Saigal and Ratan Bai, and the 1958 version starring Dilip Kumar and Meena Kumari easily stands out as the better known versions in the public’s mind.

Agha Hashr Kashmiri passed away in 1935 and is buried in Lahore. But the mark that he has left on the Urdu theatre and subsequently on the Hindi films is incomparable.

Yahudi ki Ladki is a tragic tale of love between a Roman Prince, Marcus and the Jewish girl, Hannah. The storyline covers two generations of enmity between the Roman priest Brutus and a Jewish merchant Ezra. Brutus sentences Ezra’s son to death. In retaliation, Ezra kidnaps Decia, the only daughter of Brutus and then raises her as his own child Hannah. When she grows up, the Roman prince Marcus falls in love with her, and he disguises himself as a Jew to continue meeting his beloved, and be with her. Alas, when his identity is discovered, he is ejected from Ezra’s household. Marcus’ father, the emperor arranges for his son’s marriage to Princess Octavia. Hannah, the heartbroken, comes to emperor’s court and tells the story of her love with Marcus. The emperor sentences his own son to death. On Octavia’s pleas, Ezra and Hannah retract their accusations in an effort to save Marcus from the gallows. The retraction has its consequences and now Brutus sentences both the father and daughter also to the gallows.

As one reads into this storyline, one can also identify many other Hindi films that have continued to use this plot or its variations.

This song is from the 1956 movie, Yahudi ki Beti, whose star cast includes Daljit, Anita Guha, Tabassum, Tiwari, Helen, Maruti, Al Nasir, Rajan Haksar, Wazir Mohammed Khan etc. The lyrics of this movie are penned by Kaifi Azmi and Shyam Lal Shams, and the composition is by Kamal Mitra. This song is the creation of Kaifi Azmi, and is sung by Hemant Kumar and Asha Bhosle. Only the audio of the song is available, but given the content of the song, it must be picturized on the lead pair, i.e. Daljit and Anita Guha.

Enjoy this gem !
