Ik yaad teri hai mere jeene ka sahaara

Posted on: May 22, 2012

“Taara” (1949) is an extremely obscure movie by now. This movie was a New Bombay Theatre Production. It was directed by R D Pareenja. The movie had Shyama, Jawahar Kaul, Kuldip, Majnu, Nayantara, Chand Burque etc in it.

The songs of this movie are just as obscure.

Here is a lovely forgotten gem from this movie. It is sung by a fresh voiced Geeta Roy (later Dutt). Aziz Kashmiri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie.

Song-Ik yaad teri hai mere jeene ka sahaara (Taara)(1949) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Aziz Kashmiri, MD-Vinod


Ik yaad teri hai
ik yaad teri hai
mere jeene ka sahaara
ik yaad teri hai

aa jaa
aa jaa
aa ja mere saathi
mera dil dol raha hai
mera dil dol raha hai ae ae
insaaf ke taraazoo mein mujhe tol raha hai
insaaf ke taraazoo mein mujhe tol raha hai
kyun kar gaya saathi
meri duniya se kinaara
duniya se kinaara
ik yaad teri hai
mere jeene ka sahaara
ik yaad teri hai

rehta hai sada kyun
meri raaton mein andhera
meri raaton mein andhera
kyun aake bataate nahin
kyaa dosh hai mera
kyun aake bataate nahin
kyaa dosh hai mera
sau baar tumhe chaandni raaton mein pukaara
raaton mein pukaara
ik yaad teri hai
mere jeene ka sahaara
ik yaad teri hai

Atul ji,
TARA-1949 was truly an obscure film,because when it was released,for unknown reasons,it went off the theatres within a week’s time and never came for even a second run,like other movies.
All my efforts to see this film came to a nought.I was keen to see this film,as its MD was VINOD,who had become popular due to the immortal Lara Lappa song from EK THI LADKI-49.
This film had 12 songs. Vinod had a penchant for giving chance to new/less known singers in his film.Thus Vinata Amladi(Dilli se aaya bhai Tingu fame) and Geeta Gandhari,Meenal Wagh etc got entry in film world.In the 12 songs of the film Vinod had used as many as 7 singers-
Geeta Gandhari,premlata,Uma Devi(Tun Tun),Raj kumari,Geeta Roy,hameeda Bano and Satish batra-the only male singer.
Vinod had another(good) habit.He liked to have atleast 1 or 2 fun songs in his films.In this film also there were 2 fun songs.
1. mithai ki dukan meri Dilli ke bajar mein-Geeta Gandhari and
2. Hello Hello,Pyar karna ho to kar lo telifoon-Satish batra and Rajkumari.
the director of this film was Mr.R.D.Parineeja.he started his career as a Cinematographer in Bombay Talkies in its haydays.
He filmed izzat,prem kahani,Jeevan prabhat,and Savitri-all 37 films,then Kangan,Azaad,Jhoola,Bandhan,naya sansar and kismet.
When he was in Bombay Talkies,the German pair of Director Franz Osten and Cinematographer Joseph Wirsching was also there He must have learnt a lot from them(or did he ?).
When Parineeja left Bombay Talkies in its waning bad times he tired to produce and Direct films on his own.
first it was Sona Chandi-46 and then it was Tara-49.
After Tara,the film and the prod/Director disappeared into obscurity for ever.
