Today, India is celebrating the 64th anniversary of freedom from the British rule. A movement that lasted almost 100 years – starting with disjoint uprisings against the Britishers, and the first coordinated war of independence in 1857, the struggle and resistance was carried forward by many stalwarts across the entire country. There was the nationwide resistance movement through political and social disobedience. Besides, there were other complementary movements, that added impetus to this struggle for freedom. Groups of young people, charged with the objective of bringing to end the oppressive reign of an alien government, came together in various cities in different parts of the country, and conducted local resistance and struggle. Kundan, the 1955 production from Minerva Movietone, depicts one such group of young men, as a subplot to the main theme and story of the film.

Kundan is an adaptation of the famous literary creation Les Miserables by the French author, Victor Hugo. Considered by many as one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century, it follows the trials and tribulations of an ex convict and his struggles for redemption and rehabilitation in the society. He tries to become a force for good in the society, and yet his dark past does not let go of him. The film is produced and directed by Sohrab Modi, who has also played the central character in the movie.

The movie is set in pre independence India. The original novel has used the students rebellion of 1832 (in France) as a backdrop. In Kundan, the struggle for independence and the rebellion against the British rule forms the backdrop of the story. The main players on screen include Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Om Prakash, Pran, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Kum Kum, Baby Naaz etc.

This song is performed at a gathering of a group of freedom fighters, led by Sunil Dutt. It is a rousing exhortation to the young men to come together and overthrow the rule of the foreign invaders. The lyrics are penned by Shakeel Badayuni and the music is composed by Ghulam Mohammed. The singing voice is of Mohammed Rafi, supported by a chorus.

Lyrics

naujawaano naujawaano
naujawaano bharat ki taqdeer banaa do
naujawaano bharat ki taqdeer banaa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
naujawaano

naujawaano

tod ke saare jaal bideshi
kar lo desh to apna
kar lo desh to apna
reh jaaye na dekho adhuraa
koi sunder sapna
koi sunder sapna
ghar mein aag lagaaye jo deepak
us ko bujhaa do
ghar mein aag lagaaye jo deepak
us ko bujhaa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
naujawaano

naujawaano

hum bharat ke waasi
kyun hon duniya se sharminda
duniya se sharminda
desh ke kaaran maut bhi aaye
phir bhi rahenge zinda
phir bhi rahenge zinda
jai jai hind ke naaron se
dharti to hilaa do
jai jai hind ke naaron se
dharti to hilaa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
naujawaano

apne saath hai kaise kaise
balwaanon ki shakti
balwaanon ki shakti
apne saath hai kaise kaise
balwaanon ki shakti
balwaanon ki shakti
shri jawaharlal ki himmat
shri jawaharlal ki himmat
bapu ji ki bhakti
bapu ji ki bhakti
desh ka jhandaa jag mein
unchaa kar ke dikhaa do
desh ka jhandaa jag mein
unchaa kar ke dikhaa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
naujawaano
naujawaano
naujawaano

naujawaano bharat ki taqdeer banaa do
naujawaano bharat ki taqdeer banaa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
phoolon ke is gulshan se kaanton to hataa do
naujawaano
