Ye duniya ek saagar hai

Posted on: April 20, 2012


“Bandish” (1955) was a Basu Chitra Mandir Production. It was directed by Satyen Bose. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari,Mehmood, Pratima Devi,Bipin Gupta, Meena Kumari, Daisy Irani, Bhanu Banerji, N. Hussain, Sajjan, Shammi, Indira, Narbada Shanker etc in it.

Two songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is another song from the movie.

This song is a boat song and the lyrics are philosophical in nature. The picturisation shows Ashok Kumar seated on a bench and Daisy Irani fast asleep resting her head on Ashok Kumar’s lap. And then this song commences. Several rowers are rowing a boat and a non rower, resting on his row, begins singing this song. The person, sporting a thick moustache would have remained unidentified by me but for the fact that Khyati Bhatt, who sent me the lyrics of this song, has already identified the actor for me. It is none other than Mehmood ! Yes, now that I have been informed, I can see that it is Mehmood.

This song is sung by Hemant Kumar and chorus. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Hemant Kumar is also the music director.

The audio version of this song contains an additional stanza, but I have not been able to locate an audio version of the song so far. I will include the audio link as well as the relevant part of lyrics too when I can do that. In the meanwhile enjoy this nice philosophical boat song from “Bandish” (1955).

haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

toofaanon se kya darta
jab tera raam rakhaiyya

haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

ye duniya ek saagar hai
ye jeewan hai ek naiyya
toofaano se kya darta jab
tera raam rakhaiyya
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

ek lahar aaye ek jaaye
kabhi ruke na paani
ho haiyya ho haiyya
ho haiyya ho haiyya

ek lahar aaye ek jaaye
kabhi ruke na paani
rukna maut ka naam jagat mein
chalna zindgaani
haiyya ho re ho
haiyya ho re ho

ek lehar aaye ek jaaye
kabhi ruke na paani
rukna maut ka naam jagat mein
chalna zindgaani
jab tak saans hai tere tan mein
chalta jaa re bhaiyya
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

ye duniya ek saagar hai
ye jeewan hai ek naiyya
toofaanon se kya darta jab
tera raam rakhaiyya
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

ye duniya ek saagar hai
ye jeewan hai ek naiyya
toofaanon se kya darta jab
tera raam rakhaiyya
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho
haiyya re haiyya haiyya ho

Atulji,
Thanks for posting this boat song. I did try hard to find the full video version as this one has only one stanza. Could succeed to find at least audio on raaga and smashits to complete this song. If you/some one do find video with full length, it will be gr8.
Btw, Mehmood looks so strange in this role woh bhi badi moochh ke saath! This must be one of his earlier films.

Atul ji,
BANDISH-1955 was a film by Basu chitra mandir,directed by Satyen Bose.This was one of his early films as director.
Satyen Bose(22-1-1916 to 9-6-1993) was a Master story teller and a successful director.Starting with PORIBORTON-1949 in Bengali,he entered Hindi films with Parichay 1954,followed by Jagriti-a remake of his Poriborton(he had done the main role of the Teacher in the bengali film,which in hindi,Abhi Bhattacharya did).Bose directed hits like Dosti,Chalti naam Gaadi,sitaron se aagey,Girl friend etc,a total of 32 films.his last directorial film was Woh din aayega-87.
The music was by Hemant kumar and for the last time RAVI was his assistant because in the same year RAVI made his debut with VACHAN as an independent M.D. In Bandish Ravi had also written few songs,as Ravi shankar,along with Indeevar,RMAKhan and SHBihari.
BANDISH was a remake of a successful Bengali film and in the film,story happens with all the cast bearing Bengali names.Nasir hussain is Mahender Babu who is bringing up an orphan ‘ Tomato’ (Daisy Irani),sicne he was a small baby.Now that he is unable to rear him any further due to bad health,he leaves Tomato in a park,where Kamal Roy(Ashok kumar) is sitting on a bench alone and tells Tomato to call him
his father hereafter.Kamal Roy brings Tomato home and keeps him as his son.Kamal Roy’s marriage is fixed with Usha Sen(Meena kumari).The entry of Tomato is resented by Kamal’s Mother(Protima Devi) and father(Bhanu Bannerjee) who advise him to get married immediately,as the neighbours and other people in their social circle are whispering about
Tomato’s parentage-accusing silently Kamal himself.
In this situation Usha supports Kamal fully.
The story further details how Tomato brings cheers and sorrow in their lives with the end being very happy.

Mehmood stuggled a lot. In DO BIGHA ZAMEEN he appears as an extra in the song Azab tteri duniya ; and that too in some shots he is missing. That means the editor (Hrishiikesh Mukherjee)and the director Bimal Roy) both were not aware of his presence in the shots.
