Ik din ik armaan bharaa dil

Posted on: October 28, 2011

“Gareebi” (1949) is a movie about which very little information is available on internet. Fortunately, we have our own encyclopaedia Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, who was not only around when these movies were released, but on many cases he even watched such movies and took notes.

Here is what he has to say about “Gareebi” (1949):-

GARIBI(1949),a Ranjit movietone film had music by its contracted composer B C Rani and lyricists were Rajendra Krishna,Shevan Rizvi,B.R.Sharma and M G Adeeb.

I dont know whether Chandulal Shah ever knew on what storylines their movies were being produced on the assembly line,because not only all 4 set-sections of Ranjit studios were always shooting some films but sometimes they used to hire the neighbouring Sharda studios also.

This was one movie which eulogized the virtues of poverty(Garibi) as compared to Riches(Amiri). Geeta Bali,hailing from a poor family loves and gets married to rich Jairaj. She finds it difficult to adjust to the rich ways of her sasural,perticularly Saas-Sasur(Tarabai-Bhupat Rai),while her poor mother(Nirupa Roy) and Father(P.Kailash) get poorer but they have very high ideals and come to the rescue of their rich relatives when there is a problem with their daughter(Usha Kiran), who is in trouble with her husband(Jawahar Kaul).

Having learnt that only Money can not give happiness,the rich family respects the poor and poverty. This was a very unconvincing storyline and badly handled too. The only saving grace was its superb music.

I have discussed one rare song from “Gareebi”(1949) in the past. Here is another rare song. This song is sung by Rafi. Lyrics are written by Butaram Sharma. Music is of course composed by Bulo C Rani.

Song-Ik din ik armaan bhara dil (Gareebi) (1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani


Ik din ik armaan bhara dil
ik din ik armaan bhara dil
ulfat se do chaar huaa
Ik din ik armaan bhara dil
ek nayi duniya jo dekhi
us duniya se pyaar huaa
ik din ik armaan bhara dil

hanskar kaan mein aasha boli
ye sab duniya teri hai
tere liye hi zindagi maine
chaaron oar bikheri hai
paake sahaara aasha ka dil
paake sahaara aasha ka dil
jeene ko taiyyaar huaa
ik din ik armaan bhara dil

ik din qismat dil se boli
paal rahaa hai mushqil tu
dekh raha hai khwaab suhaane
pagle nahin is qaabil tu
laakh sahaa qismat na maani
laakh sahaa qismat na maani
kehna sab bekaar huaa
ik din ik armaan bharaa dil

pyaar ka maaraa dil bechaaraa
qismat ko na taal sakaa
apni duniya dekh sakaa na
apna aap sambhaal saka
toot gaya qismat ka maara
toot gaya qismat ka maara
marna bhi dushwaar huaa
ik din ik armaan bharaa dil
ik din ik armaan bharaa dil
ulfat se do chaar huaa
ik din ik armaan bharaa dil
