Hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa

Posted on: October 31, 2011


“Rasiya” (1950) is a movie that never saw the light of the day as it was shelved midway. A few songs of this movie were already recorded by them and they had become popular as well.

I have discussed one such song in the past. Here is another song fro this unreleased movie.

This song is a nice ghazal (I hope I have identified it correctly as a ghazal). It is sung by Lata. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.
PS-Readers feel that this song is a mujra song. Even I half suspected it as such.

It is no nice and comforting to know that the songs of this movie were nost lost to music lovers, and we are all thankful for such small mercies.


Song-Hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa (Rasiya)(1950) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

aaa
aa aa aa aa aa
aa aa aa

hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli
armaan tadap uthhe mere
yoon muskuraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa

phir hamse wo phirti huyi nazren milaaye jaa
phir hamse wo phirti huyi nazren milaaye jaa
phir thhes deke dil ko mera dil banaaye jaa
armaan tadap uthhe mere
yoon muskuraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa

aankhon mein
aankhon mein
aankhon mein jaam pyaar ke bhar bhar ke laaye jaa
aankhon mein jaam pyaar ke bhar bhar ke laaye jaa
main jitni pi sakoon
mujhe utni pilaaye jaa
armaan tadap uthhe mere
yoon muskuraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa
hans hans ke mere chain pe bijli giraaye jaa

It seems it would have been picturised as a mujra.

In early 1950’s, when I was barely 9 years old, the word “Rasiya” means country Rusia to me 🙂
The semi classical ghazal with harmonium and tabla, it is a mujra song.

Definitely it was or must have been recorded as a Mujra song by the team of BCR-DNM-Lata in the shelved film ”Rasiya – 1954 ?”. The master in 50s & 60s composed some iconic Ghazals for hindi films. Besides composing ghazals in a traditional style, he experimented (highly successfully in that era) with the more inventory style of ghazal composition e.g. with taal changes & expressive changes, while remaining within the basics of a ghazal composition.

In ”Rasiya” he was with his old friend DN Madhok & composed this Mujra song in a masterly Ghazal style – the expressions, murkees & the delivery plus the use of Saarangi & Tabla, … all are fair enough for me to put this ghazal into a ‘Mujra’ category of songs ….
