Dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone laga re

Posted on: March 22, 2012


This article is written by Sadanand Kamath, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

About a month back, I stumbled upon a song ‘aankhen to huyi band magar dard jagaa re’ from the film BEGUM (1945) sung by Ashok Kumar. Until then, I had neither heard of this song nor of the film which had Ashok Kumar and Naseem Bano in the lead roles. I liked the song so much that I must have listened to it umpteen times. The song is written by Gopal Singh Nepali and set to music by Hari Prasanna Das (H P Das) whose name also I heard for the first time. From the Indian Film Trade Data website, I observed that H P Das had given music to 10 Hindi films between 1935 and 1948 including 2-3 films jointly with Manna Dey.

What I liked about this song is the way Ashok Kumar has rendered it giving an impression of a professional playback singer as against his amateurish way of singing songs in his earlier films such as ‘Achhut Kanya’ (1936) and ‘Janam Bhoomi (1936). Probably, with the playback system coming into vogue, Ashok Kumar had time and flexibility in adjusting his voice modulation while recording the songs. I wish he had continued playback singing for his films of later years.

I have enjoyed this song so much that I felt I should share my enjoyment of listening to this gem of Ashok Kumar with other readers of this blog. Only the audio clip is available of this song but it is apparent that the song is picturised on Ashok Kumar.

Incidentally, this is the first song of music director Hari Prasanna Das being discussed in this blog.

Additional note: More than four years later I discovered Naseem Bano version of the song, that appears to be in response to the Ashok Kumar version of the song, though the lyrics are different.

ankhen to huyi band
magar dard jagaa re
dil yaad mein kisi ki
zaraa rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re
dil yaad mein kisi ki
zaraa rone lagaa re

dil mein dukhaa khwaab hai
aankhon mein andheraa
aankhon mein andheraa
ho gayaa barbaad meraa
rain baseraa
rain baseraa
ab hoke judaa donon
lage hain jaa kinaare
dil yaad mein kisi ki
zaraa rone lagaa re

ishq kiyaa
husn ki tasweeren banaayi
ishk kiyaa
husn ki tasweeren banaayi
chhod ke tasweer ek
baaqi mitaayi
chhod ke tasweer ek
baaqi mitaayi
ab ji rahaa hoon main
isi tinke ke sahaare
dil yaad mein kisi ki zaraa
rone lagaa re

milne ki tamannaa se
mujhe chain nahin hai
din raat meri preet
usse dhoondh rahi hai
aa jaaye kahin wo
mil jaaye kahin wo
aa jaaye kahin wo
mil jaaye kahin wo
mil jaayen to rakhoon usse
palkon mein chhupaaye
dil yaad mein kisi ki
zaraa rone lagaa re

———————————-
Naseem Bano version
———————————-
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone laga re
rone laga re…ae
rone laga re
rone laga re…ae
rone laga re
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rony laga re

ummeed nahin thhi ke mujhe yaad karoge
ummeed nahin thhi ke mujhe yaad karoge
le le ke mera naam kabhi aah bharoge
le le ke mera naam kabhi aah bharoge
tumne to banaayi thhi
mere…ae husn ki tasweer
thhukraa ke mera pyaa..r
thhukraa ke mera pyaar
thhukraa ke mera pyaar
meri..ee chheen li tasweer
aa jaayen kahin wo
mil jaayen kahin wo
aa jaayen kahin wo
mil jaayen kahin wo
aa jaayen to rakhoon us’se
palkon mein chhupaaye
milaa jaayen to rakhoon unhen
palkon mein chhupaaye
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re…ae
rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re…ae
rone lagaa re
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone lagaa re

Kamath ji,
HARI PRASANN DASS (1910-1990) was a wellknown Bengali Composer.His 26 Bengali films made his name known in music circle in Calcutta in late 30s and 40s.
Hemant Kumar mukherjee was his asst. in Bengali film ‘Byabdhan’-1939.It was HPDass who gave his FIRST Bengali film song to Hemant kumar in the film ‘Nimai Sanyas’-1941.Till that time Hemant had only private songs to his credit.
In 1952,HPDass gave music to NAGORIK,a complete English film-an art film for international audience-made by the legendary film maker Ritwik Ghatak.This was a film even before Satyajit Ray’s Pather Panchali,but due to some reason this film was released only on 20-9-1977,after the death of Ritwik Ghatak.
It is said that despite ill health, HPDass went to New Empire Theatre in Calcutta to see this film.Hari prasanna Dass gave music to Nagorik,along with Ustad Bahadur Khan.
K.C.Dey was a good friend of HPDas and sang many Bengali songs and Bhajans for him.On his recommendation,HPDass took Manna Dey as his asst. in Hindi films Veerangana-1947,Sati Toral-1947 and Hum bhi Insaan Hai-1948.It is believed that after hearing Manna Dey’s music and songs in this film,Raj Kapoor invited him to sing for his films later on.

Atul ji,

When I wrote this article more than 4 years back, I was not aware that this song had a Naseem Bano version with more or less the same tune but substantially different lyrics. The listing of the Naseem Bano version of the song had a different refrain. .

Recently, I came across mp3 clip of Naseem Bano version of the song. Since the song was not available on YT, I have made a video of the song and have uploaded the same on YT. The link below:

The lyrics of the song below:

dil yaad mein kisi ki jara rone laga re
rone laga re…e
rone laga re
rone laga re…e
rone laga re
dil yaad mein kisi ki jara rony laga re

ummeed nahi thhi ke mujhe yaad karoge
ummeed nahi thhi ke mujhe yaad karoge
le le ke mera naam kabhi aah bharoge
le le ke mera naam kabhi aah bharoge
tumne to banaayi thhi
mere…e husn ki tasweer
thukraa ke mera pyaa..r
thukraa ke mera pyaar
thukraa ke mera pyaar
meri..ee chheen li tasweer
aa jaayen kahin wo
mil jaayen kahin wo
aa jaayen kahin wo
mil jaayen kahin wo
mil jaayen to rakhoon usse
palkon mein chhupaaye
milaa jaayen to rakhoon usse
palkon mein chhupaaye
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re…e
rone lagaa re
rone lagaa re…e
rone lagaa re
dil yaad mein kisi ki zara rone lagaa re

From the lyrics, it would appear that Naseem Bano version is the reactions to the Ashok Kumar version of the song.

For the sake of completeness, I request you to incorporate the video as well as the lyrics in the main part of the article with appropriate tagging.
