Panghat pe morey Shyaam bajaaye muraliyaa

Posted on: November 5, 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 seven 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.

Here is a C H Atma solo song from “Bilwamangal” (1954). D N Madhok is the lyricist and music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

Listening to this song has a calming effect on one’s nerves and makes one feel at peace with the world.

Song-Panghat pe morey Shyaam bajaaye muraliyaa (Bilwamangal) (1954) Singer-C H Atma, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Bulo C Rani


Panghat pe morey Shyaam
bajaaye muraliya
panghat pe morey Shyaam
bajaaye muraliya

jal Jamuna
jal Jamuna pag chooman aaye
jal Jamuna pag chooman aaye
pawan chalat ithhlaaye
pawan chalat ithhlaaye
kaliyon ne bhanwre se poochhaa
kaliyon ne bhanwre se poochhaa
aaa aaa
kaun hai ye man chhaliyaa
kaun hai ye man chhaliyaa
bajaaye muraliyaa
panghat pe morey Shyaam
bajaaye muraliya

murali baaji
ban ki kaiyyaa sab suanane ko bhaagi
sun kar kaliyaan
sun kar kaliyaan
bhor se pehle
adh nindiyaa se jaagin
yahi raat hai
yahi raat hai
jab Raadha ki Shyaam se ankhiyaan laagin
bholi bhaali
bholi bhaali brij naari ka
man har leeno chhaliyaa
bajaaye murliyaa
panghat pe morey Shyaam
bajaaye muraliya
bajaaye muraliya
