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

Ho meri ek nazar ke do do asar

Posted on: August 14, 2011


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

Think of a music director from Punjab, preparing music for a film whose story is set in Bombay. And one of the songs is based on the local folk dance of Maharashtra. And guess what you will get? A Lavani based song spiced with exclamations of ‘haishaa’. And if you don’t believe me, well just go ahead and listen to this wonderful folk dance song from the 1957 film Miss Bombay. (NOTE: ‘haishaa’ is an exclamation that is used often in Punjabi folk songs.).

This is the fourth song from this film to be posted on this blog. Miss Bombay is a social romantic drama with Ajit and Nalini Jaywant as he lead actors. The other supporting cast includes Rehman, Tewari, Bhagwan, Vijay Laxmi, Kanchanmala, Ramesh Thakur, Vijyabala, Kamlesh Kumari, Ramlal etc. And belive me, the published list of supporting actors includes a junior artist by the name ‘Black and White’. Ajit is a driver by profession, and the iconic song ‘Le Chala Jidhar Ye Dil Nikal Padey’ is filmed on him earlier in the movie. He meets with Nalini Jaywant, and they are romantically involved. Ergo, antother iconic song is played on that occasion ‘Din Ho Ya Raat Hum Rahen Tere Saath’. Circumstances intervene and the two are separated. The smart Ajit is reduced to a straggler with a stubble, and another famous song comes to play ‘Zindagi Bhar Gam Judaai Kaa Mujhe Tadpaayega’. Ajit takes to drink and becomes a vagabond. In his wanderings, he ends up drunk in a fishermen’s village, where a kind hearted person gives him shelter for the night. In the morning, he wakes up with a huge hangover, and the local village folk are getting ready for a celebration. A Lavani song and dance ensues, and somehow the word that the lead dancer is singing play out in Ajit’s mind, as a reflection of his own situation. When near the end of the song, the following lines are sung, ‘koi man mein basaa, nainon mein hasaa, koi sapnaa ban kar bisar gayaa’, his identification with the song is so disturbing that he cannot take it anymore.

The lyrics of this film are written by three poets viz., Prem Dhawan, Qamar Jalaalabaadi, and Asad Bhopali. This particular song is penned by Asad Saab. The music composition is by Hansraj Behl – with the touch of bhangra in the Lavani :).

The YouTube post is not very clear both for audio and video purposes. Hence the audio only version is also linked below. The video of the post is not very sharp, so I have not been able to pick out any actors on screen, other than Ajit himself. I would request other readers to help identify the actors in this song.

Enjoy this wonderfully paced folk dance song from Hansraj Behl.

Sudhir sir,

Reg : “haishaa”

Actually in Lavani form of song there is word often used i. e. “Aeeka” which means ‘listen’ or “hear me”. So this is more likely “Aeeka, aeeka ho aeeka”. I am trying to find a clip for a good lavani, and will give the link soon.

Nahm Bhai,

You could be very right. Not being very familiar with the language, it is possible that I deciphered the word ‘aeekaa’ as ‘haishaa’. As I now listen to the song again, yes, it does sound as ‘aeekaa’. Thanks for the correction. I will suitably update the write up with Atul ji’s help. 🙂
