Zor lagaa le arre zamaane kitna zor lagaayegaa

Posted on: July 15, 2011


Though I have discussed as many as seven songs from “Nastik” (1954), I was not aware of this song till a few hours ago.

This song is a bhajan cum public lament. In this song, Ajit, Usha Kiran and others are sitting in a temple in front of the idols of gods and Ajit sings this song. The song states that non believers tend to blame God for their misdeeds, but their efforts to give a bad name to God cannot succeed. God’s flag will always fly high, come what may.

The song is written by Pradeep with his usual passion. C Ramchandra, who was also the music director of this movie, sings this song for Ajit. Later, Usha Kiran,Nalini Jaiwant who apparently has lost her memory (I have not seen the movie, so I am only guessing it), regains her memory and sings in Lata’s voice, and Ajit feels suitably grateful to the almighty for this miracle.

For much of the song, I kep feeling as if I was listening to Pradeep’s voice. But no, it is C Ramchandra’s voice alright. He had the gift to be able to mimic the voice of others. For instance, he had mimicked Talat Mehmood’s voice so well in the songs of “Aazaad” (1955) that many industry insiders were fooled.

Here is this lovely less known song from “Nastik” (1954) for the listning and viewing pleasures of music lovers.


Song-Zor lagaa le arre zamaane kitna zor lagaayegaa (Nastik) (1954) Singers-C Ramchandra, Lata, Lyrics-Pradeep, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

duniyaa bhar ke naastik
kitne namak haraam
apnaa dosh na dekhte
Prabhu ko karen badnaam

zor lagaa le arre zamaane
kitnaa zor lagaayegaa
is jag mein Bhagwaan kaa jhandaa
kabhi na jhukne paayegaa

is jag mein Bhagwaan kaa jhandaa
kabhi na jhukne paayegaa

nahin huaa hai
kabhi na hogaa
hari sareekhaa daani
saare jag ko muft de rahaa
agan pawan aur paani
paal rahaa apni dharti par
wo sab ki zindgaani
badle mein letaa na kisi se
ek bhi kaudi kaani
kaun jagat mein apnaa khazaanaa
hari ki tarah lutaayegaa
is jag mein Bhagwaan kaa jhandaa
kabhi na jhukne paayegaa

aaye is duniyaa mein karodon

karmon ke anusaar bhog kar
khushiyaan aur tabaahi
(hari om )
laakh laakh sadiyon se dete
sooraj chaand gawaahi
(hari om )
Prabhu kaa aasan aaj talak hai
jaisaa kaa taisaa hi
(hari om )
na koi fauj hai na koi paltan
na hai koi sipaahi
(hari om )
fakat ishaaron se chaltaa hai
kaam Prabhu kaa shaahi
ye aakaash pe likhaa lekh hai
isko kaun mitaayegaa
is jag mein Bhagwaan kaa jhandaa
kabhi na jhukne paayegaa

Even I was surprised to see Usha Kiran in this movie. But then I have not seen the movie and so I know little about this movie.

Usha Kiran was never in this movie. It is Nalini Jaywant all the way. The only time they were together was in “Aawaz” 1956, Zia Sarhadi movie.

Is it so ? I knew that C Ramchandra could sound like other singers, but I was not aware that Nalini Jaiwant too could look like other actresses. 😀

I am poorer in identifying old time actresses than I thought. 😀
