Mere dil ke musaafir khaane mein

When the name of Ghulam Mohammed is mentioned, the mind conjures up the classical and semi classical sounds and rhythms, foremost from Pakeezaah and then from many other movies like Shamaa, Mirza Ghalib, Laila Majnu, Dil e Nadaan, Shaayar, and other such movies. And so it is a surprise to come across lighter songs and foot tapping numbers that have been composed under his baton. On first hearing, if the details are not known, one can easily attribute these songs to OP Nayyar or Shankar-Jaikishan, Chitragupt etc.

Here is one such number from a 1953 movie called Hazaar Raatein (Thousand Nights). A social drama produced and directed by Jayant Desai, it included the following players in the star cast – Rehana, Manhar Desai, Agha, Cuckoo, Bipin Gupta, Kuldeep Akhtar, Amir Banu, Satya Narayan, Gajendra Singh, Yunus etc. The songs for this movie come from the pen of Shakeel Badayuni, and the music compositions are by Ghulam Mohammed.

This is a very light song, a romantic tete-a-tete between two lovers, and the words are just super, fun and poignant at the same time. The ‘ishq’ person is inviting the ‘husn’ to continue staying in his heart, now that she has come there, exhorting her not to leave. He likens his heart to a Musaafir Khana, a place for travelers to rest. And the ‘husn’ person retorts by saying that, if your heart is a Mehmaan Nagar where guests are welcome, then there will be many more like her that may come in. But of course, eventually and expectedly, there is agreement that they will not leave each other.

The singing voices are of Mohammed Rafi and Shamshad Begum. Only the audio of the song is available, so cannot hazard a guess whether this song is picturized on Manhar Desai and Rehana, or is it picturized on Agha, and another (both possibilities can be there). Regardless, this a wonderful fun song to listen to; the beat and tempo are racy, and listening carefully, one can make out the jal tarang also being used at places in this song.

If you are looking for today’s dose of a new fun, and hummable number, here is a surprise from Ghulam Mohammed. Enjoy.


Song-Mere dil ke musaafir khaane mein (Hazaar Raatein)(1953) Singers-Rafi,Shamshad Begam,Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

mere dil ke musaafir khaane mein
o dekho
mere dil ke musaafir khaane mein

aaye ho sanam to jaana naa
jaana na jaana na jaanaa naa

sunte hain ke tum ho harjaayee
sunte hain ke tum ho harjaayee

arre jaana na jaana na jaanaa naa
jaanaa naa o jaanaa naa jaanaa naa

mujhe maar na daale aaj kahin

mujhe maar na daale aaj kahin
teri patli qamar ka ik jhatkaa
ji teri patli qamar ka ik jhatkaa
o teri patli qamar ka ik jhatkaa

marne se na dar

jab main hoon teri
phir kyaa khatkaa
phir kyaa khatkaa
teri zulfon mein dil mera atkaa
ho o
is qaid se hum ko chhudaana naa
jaana na jaana na jaanaa naa
jaanaa naa o jaanaa naa jaanaa naa

tera dil hai agar mehmaan nagar
ho o
tera dil hai agar mehmaan nagar
ho o o o
hum jaise hazaaron aayenge
ji hum jaise hazaaron aayenge
hum jaise hazaaron aayenge
arre waah

hum jaane na denge tumko magar
aake to galey pad jaayenge
galey pad jaayenge
is dil pe kisi ka zor nahin
ho o
kahin tum ko pade pachhtaan’naa naa
jaana na jaana na jaanaa naa
ho mere dil ke musaafir khaane mein
ho
aaye ho sanam to jaana naa
ho
dil le ke mera thhukraanaa naa
arre jaana na jaana na jaanaa naa
jaanaa naa o jaanaa naa
ho jaanaa naa o jaanaa naa
jaanaa naa
