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

Ye ruki ruki hawaayen

Posted on: April 28, 2012


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

Ever since I heard the songs from film ‘Badi Maa'(1945) about four decades ago, I have been a fan of music director Datta Korgaonkar (known as K Datta). It is stated that when his songs from ‘Badi Maa’ were heard by some of his contemporary music directors, they were so impressed by his compositions, especially ‘diya jalaaker aap bujhaaye’ that music directors like Shyam Sundar, Anil Biswas, Ghulam Haider and Rafiq Ghazanvi personally visited his house and congratulated him. During the last few days, I have been going through his songs on the internet and I found his compositions and orchestration of songs somewhat different from what was prevalent during his time. K Datta was active in the film industry between 1943-1956 during which time he composed music only for a dozen films but he churned out mostly good songs though they may not have become very popular among the masses. His last film as a music director was ‘Ajnabi’ (1966).

I found it difficult to choose one among many of his songs I listened to during the last few days for discussion. For instance I found some songs from ‘Meri Kahani (1949), Daaman (1951), ‘Rishtaa’ (1954) exceptionally good to listen. Finally, I was almost ready to write on a Talat Mehmood song ‘wahi chaandni hai wahi aasmaan hai’ from film RISHTAA (1954). However, I abandoned the idea after suspecting that the 3 audio clips of this song available on YT could have been copied from a resung version. As I checked it later, they were indeed the audio clips of re-sung version, the orchestra for which was arranged by Enoch Daniels. It is said that he (with Van Shipley) often accompanied Talat Mehmood on his World tour and used to play the tune of this song on his accordion during such concerts.

My second choice was a Lata-Asha duet ‘ ye rukhi rukhi hawaayen’ from DAAMAN (1951). The film was produced under the banner of Madhukar Pictures and directed by Nanabhai Bhatt. The cast included Ajit, Nigar Sultana, Pran, Yashodhara Katju, Agha, Hiralal etc. The song was written by Rajinder Krishna. I guess that this could be the first duet song of Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle. While Lata sings in a slow tempo with melancholy mood, Asha sings in fast tempo with joyous mood. There is some similarity of musical interludes between stanzas of this song with the starting music of the song ‘ thandi hawaayen leharaa ke aayi’ from ‘Naujawaan’ (1951). Only the audio clip of the song is available and I can only make a wild guess that Lata is lip syncing for Nigar Sultana who is waiting for Ajit to come home and Asha is lip syncing for Yashodhara Katju who is wooing Ajit probably in her house.


Song-Ye ruki ruki hawaayen (Daaman)(1951) Singers-Lata, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-K Datta

aa aa aa
ye ruki ruki hawaayen
ye ruki ruki hawaayen
ye bujhe bujhe sitaare
meri raat kat rahi hai

abhi chaandni jawaan hai
ae ae ae ae ae
abhi raat hans rahi hai

jaraa do ghadi to thehro
jaraa do ghadi to thehro
mere pass mere pyaare
mere pass mere pyaare

tujhe kaun ye bataaye
mujhe bhool jaane waale
tujhe kaun ye bataaye
mujhe bhool jaane waale
tujhe yaad kar rahen hain
mere aasuon ke dhaare

o o o o o o
jaraa aur pass hojaa
jara dil se dil milaa le
ae ae ae ae
tere dil ki dhadkanon ko
tere dil ki dhadkanon ko
meri aarzoo pukaare
meri aarzoo pukaare

aaa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa
ye ruki ruki hawaayen
ye bujhe bujhe sitaare
meri raat kat rahi hai
teri yaad ke sahaare
ae

Wonderful duet by the two sisters. The difference in voice and style is almost imperceptible. But we are seasoned in listening to both of them. In 1951, it may have been difficult to differentiate. Basic voice is very similar. Thanks for finding and posting this.
