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

Jhamak jhamak liye teg tamak

Posted on: August 15, 2011


India won her freedom from British rulers in 1947 after a prolonged struggle of several decades.

It is believed that the first freedom struggle against them was launched in 1857 which did not succeed.

One movie called 1857 has been made on this topic. And curiously, this movie was released in 1946 when India was still under British rule. How the censors allowed this movie to be screened is something we do not know. Perhaps knowledgeable readers may have some idea.

Getting freedom struggle related songs passed through censors in movies those days was also a difficult task. Very few such songs managed to get past the censors. To this day, I have not been able to understand how the censors allowed the patriotic song Door hato ae duniya waalon Hindustan hamaara hai (Kismat) . One must give great credits to the makers of “Kismat” (1943) for not only daring to include a song like this in the movie but also for managing to get it passed through the censors.Likewise the song of “Maansarowar” (1946) posted earlier also managed to dodge the censors successfully.

“1857” too has a patriotic song that managed to get past the censors.

Here is this song from “1857” (1946). Among the singers, only the name of Rajkumari is known. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the singers of this song as well as the lyricist, whose identity is still a mystery.

This song is an inspirational patriotic song, and listening to this song is a great experience, considering that this song is not easily available.

On this occasion, I greet all Indians whereever they are, a Happy Independence day.

PS-“1857” (1946) had eight songs in it. All these eight songs have now been covered in the blog. The links of other songs from the movie are given below:

Chupke hi chupke na jaane
Dilli tere qile par honge nishaan hamaare
Gham e aashiyaanaa sataayegaa kab tak
Meri ho gayi unse baat
Teri nazar mein main rahoon
Ummeedon kaa taaraa
Wo pehli mulaaqaat

Sudhir ji,
You have asked how the song’Door hato aye duniyawalon….’ from kismet-1943 was allowed and escaped censors.Here is the story-
This song was written by Pradeep.The year was 1943 and the II world war was on the peak.The Americans were yet to join the allies(only after Pearl Harbour was bombed),and the main enemies of the allies were the Germans and the Japanese.
If you read the lyrics,there is a line ‘Tum na kisike aage jhukna,German ho ya Japani ‘.When this film went for censors,the british Govt was very happy to see that this song will actually help them in the war efforts,and hence the song passed thru censors.
After the release of the film,it became a terrific hit ,for people knew the real reason and meaning of the song.However,after some time the govt. realised their mistake and wanted to ban the film.An arrest warrant was issued against Kavi Pradeep,who immediately went underground.
The head of the Censors then,was one Mr.W.S.Masters,who was called to Delhi and fired from his job.
However,the Govt.was advised by the Advocate general not to ban the film as the appeal-if made by the producers against the ban-would be extremely difficult to turn down.Additionally,the public opinion would go further against the British,if ban was imposed,when actually the Govt. needed peoples’ support in the War Efforts.
Hence the matters remained where they were and after some time the arrest warrant of Pradeep was withdrawn.
That’s how the famous song survived.

Thanks for this information. Indeed Pradeep was an interpid freedom fighter in his own way. This song indeed must have inspired people no end during thse days.

Atul ji,
I was wondering about the other ‘similar’ song from MAANSAROVAR-1946 “posted earlier”.
I searched for THE song in this blog but was unable to locate it.Can you tell where is it posted ?
-AD

It is the song posted just prior to this song today itself.

Arun ji

Thanks for the details of this episode. I have read about this episode in an article long back, but that did not contain as much information as you have provided. The only reference in that article was that the song was implied to be directed against the Japanese (and Germans).

Sir, I can just not cease to be amazed at the depth of your store of information. 🙂

Sudhir ji,
Thank you for your appreciation.
I realised later that I addressed above posting to you,by oversite.It should have been addressed to Atul ji and not you.I regret the error.
-AD

Atul ji,

The missing word plus one minor correction.

?? hamaaro laal qile par fahraaye
lahar lahar woke sang mora jiya lahraaye

Should read

nishaan hamaaro laal qile par fahraaye
lahar lahar waa ke sang mora jiya lahraaye

The first line is Jhamak jhamak leeye teg tammak and not;ye teg chammak

The leading female voice in this song is that of Shamahad Begum and not of Rajkumari. According to the original booklet the lyricist is N.Y.Joshi.The credit of Gham-i-aashiana has been given to the director of the film Mohan Sinha although it was written by Sajjad Hussain,who later on also wrote three songs for Mohan Sinha”s Mere Bhagwan.
