Kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori to bin saajan tarsen

Posted on: November 2, 2011


“Bilwamangal” (1954) is a movie which was a Minar Movie productions and it was directed by D N Madhok. I have already discussed as many as six songs from this movie.

Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our inhouse expert on old and forgotten movies say about the legend of Bilwamangal as well as about this movie-

BILWA MANGAL(1954),the story of a great Krishna Bhakta has been very popular all over India in various forms and names. In eastern India, it is Bilwa mangal, in North India, same story is attributed to Sant Soordas, and even in southernmost Kerala, it is Vilwamangalam Swamiyar.

Many books have been written on him and needless to say many films also are based on this story. BILWAMANGAL was produced in 1919, 1929, 1932, 1954, in 1948, Bhakta Bilwamangala was produced and in Malyalam CHILAMBOLI(1963) was the last movie on this story (with Prem Nazir and Thikkurissi).

IN BILWAMANGAL-1954, the lead pair was C.H.Atma and Suraiyya, with Asha Mathur, Ulhas, Zebunnisa, P.Amarnath, Rajani, Nandkishore, Ramesh Thakur etc. It was produced by Taimur Behram Shah and directed by D.N.Madhok, who also wrote the lyrics.

The story tells us about Bilwamangal,who falls in love of a courtesan, despite having a good wife and family. He gets so much carried away by the courtesan, that even when his father is on deathbed,he goes to meet her, but she has gone to neighbouring villege. Meanwhile, the father dies and wife jumps in river killing herself. He swims the river with help of a log in the night and climbs with a rope to reach his lover. Actually,the log is his wife’s dead body and the rope is a snake.
When the courtesan learns all this,she scolds him and advises that he should show this earnestness in God’s Bhakti.

With repentence and remorse, Bilwamangal renounces the world and becomes a Saint. He loses his eyesight also, but regains it, etc.

C.H.Atma had 4 solos and 2 duets with Suraiyya in this film.

In addition to songs by C H Atma and Suraiyya, there were songs by other singers too in this movie. For instance, here is this song sung by Shamshad Begam. only the audio of this song is available, so one cannot tell about the picturisation of this song. the song is sung with gusto and I the fast pace of the song makes me guess that it is picturised as a dance song in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the picturisation of this song.

D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

There may be a few minor errors in a few words in the lyrics and I request our readers with keener ears to point them out, so that they can be eliminated.


Song-Kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori to bin saajan tarsen (Bilwamangal)(1954) Singer-Shamshad Begum, Lyrics-D N Madhok,MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori
to bin saajan tarsen
yaad tumhaari jab aaye
ye baadal banke barsen
main samjhoon
main samjhoon saawan aaya
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya
kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori
to bin saajan tarsen
yaad tumhaari jab aaye
ye baadal banke barsen
main samjhoon
main samjhoon saawan aaya
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya

ki na tarsaao
chale bhi aao
na chhup chhup jaao
in ankhiyon se
na chhup chhup jaao
in ankhiyon se
ki na tarsaao
chale bhi aao
na chhup chhup jaao
in ankhiyon se
na chhup chhup jaao
in ankhiyon se
dil ki tasweer dikhaayegi
raah mein bichh bichh jaayegi
na yoon ghabraao in ankhiyon se
ke jinme preetam chhhaaya
haay haay haay
ke main samjhoon sawan aaya
kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori
tum bin saajan tarsen
yaad tumhaari jab aaye
ye baadal banke barsan
main samjhoon
main samjhoon saawan aaya
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya

bhola balam
dil rakhna na jaane
dil rakhna na jaane
bhola balam
dil rakhna na jaane
dil rakhna na jaane
ishaare na samjhe hamaar
ishaare na samjhe hamaar
batiyaan na maane mori
batiyaan na maane
batiyaan na maane mori
batiyaan na maane
kajre ki dori o balma
mori tope hanse hai chori chori
tope hanse hain chori chori
ke jin nainon ki tum ho aas
mujhe na un nainon ki pyaas
ye kaisa zulm hai dhaayaa
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya
kaajal waali ankhiyaan mori
to bin saajan tarsen
yaad tumhaari jab aaye
ye baadal banke barsen
main samjhoon
main samjhoon saawan aaya
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya
haay haay haay
main samjhoon saawan aaya

Dear Mr. Atul.
Every day when I open my p.c it’s a suprise to see what you found for us, and also to read about the songs. But here I am with a request.In my youth, my brothers were humming and singing a song , but I don’t know if it whas Saigal, or one of those very popular singers of those days. The song was “SUDAMA MANDIR DEKHE DAERE. It must be a bhajan because it is about Lord Krishna’s friend Sudama. Well mr. Atul, use your magic. wish you a lot of strenght with this request. Thank you very much, and have a nice day. Greetings from Roos Ramdin.
