Bheegaa bheegaa mausam bheeni bheeni khushboo

Posted on: July 11, 2011


The first Hindi movie made by an NRI (non resident India) was “Shalimar” (1978) by Krishna Shah which was made with great publicity and fanfare and it was thought that the movie was going to be another “Sholay”, if not bigger. When finally the movie was released, it turned out that the movie was huge let down. The movie failed to last for more than one week in the movie halls.

The next NRI, who ventured in Hindi movies came two years later, and he was HJagmohan Moondra. He was not aiming to make a large scale movie. He aimed to make a low budget movie on a shoe string budget. Unlike Krishna Shah, he mostly signed up upcoming/struggling actors like Shabana Azmi,Geeta Sidharth etc. The only big name that he signed up was Sanjeev Kumar.

The movie was a whodunit genre of movie, the kind that is made in Hollywood. By Hindi movie standards, it was too bland and boring, as there were no songs and dances, no loud overacting, over the top acting etc. No wonder the movie failed to do at the box office. But at least the movie was not as big a let down as “Shalimaar” because this movie did not claim to be the next big blockbuster movie.

This movie, like Bollywood movies, had no place for songs. But considering that the movie was meant for Indian audience, Jagmohan Moondra may have been pursuaded to include a few songs in it.

Though the movie is a “recent” movie, as it came in 1980, but today its prints do not seem to be available, so it is not possible to know how the song was picturisd. I am one of the few people who actually watched this movie in the movie hall when it was released, and I do not recall much of the movie, except that Shabana Azmi, who is based in India and who has gor married to an NRI, boards a flight to join her husband, but disappears en route. The case is investigated by a detective played by Sanjeev Kumar. And he investigate the case in a “boring” way, by talking with people, and not by “dhishum dhishum” methods, as most Hindi movie watchers have got accumstomed to. No wonder, the movie did not appeal to the average movie goers.

Here is the one song from this movie. This song is sung by Lata. This song is obviously picturised on Shabana Azmi. The lyrics are written by Kaifi Azmi, her father. The music is composed by Bappi Lahiri, who was then a newcomer, and he has yet to become the usherer of Disco music by that time.

The song is lovely to listen to. Personally the last time I recall listening to this song was in the movie. I listened to this song again when Prakashchandra sent the lyrics of this song to me. This is a delightful song to listen to. And I have a feeling that one does not miss much by not watching the picturisation. Listening to the audio of this song is all that one needs to savour this forgotten gem from this forgotten movie called “Suraag” (1980).
PS-The video of this song is also available and now I have provided that link too.

Song-Bheega bheega mausam bheeni bheeni khushboo (Suraag) (1980) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Kaifi Azmi, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Bheega bheega mausam
bheeni bheeni khushboo
jaagaa jaagaa jaadoo
kaise rahe dil pe qaaboo
ho o
bheega bheega mausam
bheeni bheeni khushboo
jaagaa jagaa jaadoo
kaise rahe dil pe qaaboo
aaja re o saajna
aaja re o saajna
ho o
bheega bheega mausam

tere bina jeewan soona
sooni meri duniya
khud hi tujhe khoya maine
kis se karoon shiqwa
toote mere sapne saare
dil bujha,
dil bujha
ho o
bheega bheega mausam
bheeni bheeni khushboo
jaaga jagaa jaadoo
kaise rahe dil pe qaaboo
aaja re o saajna,
aaja re o saajna
ho o
bheega bheega mausam

chanda bina duniya veeraan
phool bina gulshan
jyoti bina aankhein andhin
tere bina tan man
gul se juda khushboo
tu mujhse juda,
mujhse juda
ho o
bheega bheega mausam
bheeni bheeni khushboo
jaaga jagaa jaadoo
kaise rahe dil pe qaaboo
aaja re o saajna,
aajaa re o saajna
ho o
bheega bheega mausam

dhokha naya khaaya maine
thokar nayee khaayee
waadi(?) bani aisi gam ki
saari khushi ganwaayee
gham ki ghata kitna barse
kyaa pata,
kyaa pata
ho o
bheega bheega mausam
bheeni bheeni khushboo
jaagaa jaagaa jaadoo
kaise rahe dil pe qaaboo
aaja re o saajna,
aaja re o saajna
ho o
bheega bheega mausam

Atulji,
if you type “Bheega bheega mausam – Suraag” in the site YOUTUBE, you will get a faint copy of actual video picturised on shabana azmi, the song has been picturised beautifully amidst foreign locales I think .The video belongs to “geetateet” in the youtube site.

Then there are more song in the film I have seen them when they have shown it in doordarshan
a)a qawwali type song sung by rafi and asha bhonsle-“woh nazar leke”
b)asha bhonsle:mera dil liye jaa, mera dil tu liye jaa, ye tan tera, man tera, jeevan tera re:that is somewhat popular song:picturised in a club party

Atul ji,
SURAAG(1982),a Hollywood creative movies production,directed also by Mundhra.He provided the story and wrote screenplay as well.The cast was Parikshit sahani,Shabana Azmi,Sanjeev Kumar,Geeta siddharth,Siddharth Tak,Mc Mohan,etc.
Surprisingly Hema Malini ,Tina Munim,Rajesh Khanna,Achla sachdev,Shubha khote and Mehmood also featured in the movie.
Parikshit Sahani,a doctor in US, comes to India for marriage and on the advise of Sanjeev kumar his friend,who is professor of criminology in US,gives an ad in papers.Responding to it,Shabana Azmi,after a brief courtship,marries Parikshit,who has to go back to US.She too follows him,after 3 months,but is kidnapped en route.Sanjeev kumar comes to India and invistigates to unravel the mystery.He succeeds,only after many twists and turns in the story.
Undaunted by the average showing of his first movie in India,Mundhra further made more movies like,Kamala-84,Vish kanya-91,Chase-2010 and Naughty @ forty-2011.

We watched this movie in the days of the VCR, but a friend had watched it in the theatre when it first released.
Vividh Bharati gave a lot of airtime to this beautiful song and `Pyarpyarpyarpyarpyar tu karle’. The qawwali mentioned by Prakashchandraji also comes to mind.
It also had the roothna-manaoing song, `Kya hua, maine kaha kya hua,’ after a showdown between the detective and his wife following the Mera Dil Tu Liye Ja and the Pyar pyar pyar song (which are in tandem, if I remember right.) The wife is disgusted with hubby’s flirting with Jayshree T. I also remember she refers to one of his students as `Cindy-Bhindi,’
The novelty value was Sidharth kak, the English newsreader on TV acting ia a movie.
