Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

He rom rom mein basne waale raam

Posted on: March 9, 2012


Music of “Neelkamal” (1968) has got to be one of the greatest music ever created for a Hindi movie. So much so that our own Raja began to imagine that the movie must be equally great. He waited three decades to watch the movie, but was extremely disappointed when he finally got to watch the movie.

Indeed the songs of this movie are so good that the movie does not deserve to have such great songs in it.

The reason why the music was so good was that the musical team of this movie was outstanding. And they all gave their best. For instance, Rafi put himself in the shoes of the character while singing the song Babul ki duaayen leti jaa. His daughter was getting married those days and so Rafi could readily enpathise with the feelings he was required to put in the song. And he sang the other song viz. Aaja tujhko pukaare mera pyaar with his characteristic gusto. If one was a small kid (which I was) who did not care much for the above mentioned songs, then the song sung by Manna Dey was what bowled the kids over. Yes, the song Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar was the best song of the movie as far as I as a kid was concerned :).

With songs like this, I do not blame Raja for his high expectations about the movie. I know that one should not expect much from Hindi movies and Indian cricketers no matter how many great songs the movie had , and no matter how impressive the individual records of the cricketers were. After the fiasco vis a vis this movie, Raja too has become wiser now. 🙂

Here is another memorable song from “Neelkamal” (1968). This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Waheeda Rehman as a bhajan. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.


Song-He rom rom mein basne waale raam (Neelkamal)(1968) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

tere charan ki
dhool jo paaye

bhaag mere jo

kyaa maangoon

kyaa maangoon
he rom rom mein
basnewaale raam

bhed teraa
koi kyaa pehchaane
jo tujhsaa ho
woh tujhe jaane
bhed teraa
koi kyaa pehchaane
jo tujhsaa ho
woh tujhe jaane
tere kiye ko
ham kyaa deven
tere kiye ko
ham kyaa deven
bhale bure ka naam
jagat ke swaami
he antaryaami
main tujhse
kyaa maangoon
main tujhse
kyaa maangoon
he rom rom mein
basnewaale raam
jagat ke swaami
he antaryaami
main tujhse
kyaa maangoon
main tujhse
kyaa maangoon
he rom rom mein
basnewaale raam

Ha ha ha.

Indeed, we know by now not to have too much faith in a Hindi movie (just based on its songs) or in an Indian cricketer (just based on his past records). 😉

I really waited three decades for this movie. The songs of Neel Kamal would play regularly on All India Radio during my schooldays, so I developed a curiosity for the movie at that time itself. When I heard that it had Raj Kumar, Waheeda Rehman and Manoj Kumar, it sounded like one of those classics (like the old “Andaaz”).

I could have of course got the video and watched it (later in life) but sometimes you don’t want to do that. There’s no fun in it. So I waited and waited. And then, suddenly sometime in 2005 or 2006, when I was in India and happened to open the morning paper, I saw that the evening movie scheduled was “Neel Kamal”.

I was thrilled – and made sure that I had no other programme for that evening. In fact I even forced my nephew (then about 22) to sit with me, telling him he was going to see a classic.

I tell you, I was SO disappointed!!! My nephew sat with me for quite some time – the only part he actually liked and remembered was “khaali dabba khaali botal”. 🙂 After that he got up and said “Mama, I can’t take anymore of this! You were waiting all these years to see THIS?”

I felt very sheepish. 🙂

I am not sure but I think the movie was a hit? (Somebody may please confirm). If so, surely the songs had a big part to play in this – and maybe just the presence of stars. Can’t imagine it became a hit for the storyline.

Thanks for this lovely song, Atul. Brought back memories of that evening.

Raja, I saw the movie as a kid, when it came out, I was quite taken by it. I have a feeling it was a hit. It was a bit scary for me, as the ghost calls out and Waheeda gets into a trance. Like you, I tried watching the movie on TV recently, but was sorely disappointed, it was soooo boring. Maybe the movie on TV was badly cut, or maybe, watching on big screen, uncut and uninterrupted is different. No harm in trying to watch it on a VCD or DVD, but I am sure even that will not be a good version.

I tried watching Ram Aur Shyam recently on TV and found the movie very choppy and silly. Seeta aur Geeta, similar story, was much much better, as was Chalbaaz. However, I realise the choppy effect could be because the video has been badly cut up. In one scene without any ‘continuity’ the idiiot Dilip has landed up in the village, and is romancing Mumtaz without any scene leading up to it.

OOps.. I meant to add that it seems like mauling movies irresponsibly and relaying them without any care as to how it looks seems to be the norm for many of the old movies. This is something Greta often remarks upon in her blog.

Yes, treating old movies like trash without realising their worth, deleting songs and scenes to reduce run time of the movie etc badly maul the movie on DVD/VCD.
