Yahaan ham wahaan tum

Posted on: June 17, 2012


“Shrimati 420″(1956) was obviously a take on the iconic movie “Shri 420″(1955). The movie was a Sippy Films production. It was produced and directed by G P Sippy. The movie had Johny Walker and Meena Shorey in lead roles.

Very little is known about this movie and the best place to know the details of this movie is this blog itself where Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved in house encyclopaedia have given all the details about this movie and the background information about the movie. Here is what he has to say about this movie:-

SHRIMATI 420-1956 was the last film of Meena Shorey to be released in India.The film had been shot in a hurry in the end part of 1955,as Roop and Meena were to go to Pakistan,on an invitation to make a film.The film which they made there was Miss 56,a blatant copy of indian film Mr.and Mrs 55 which was a runaway hit here.

Unfortunately,Meena Shorey got misled by the fame and adulation she got that time in Pakistan. She decided to permanently remain in Pakistan, against the sane advice by her husband Roop K Shorey, with a foolish hope that she will play another successful innings in Pakistan thereafter,just like Noorjehan. She ,however forgot that even Noorjehan-very wisely-stopped acting in the films at the right time and had concentrated only on playback singing,thus extending her film career,in Pakistan.

Meena was unlucky and she ended up with dire consequences and finally dying in a pathetic way in Pakistan.

In India,however,her image was always that of an innocent looking,bubbly good looking actress.Her ‘Ek thi ladki’ image stayed with her in India for ever.

SHRIMATI 420 was made to encash her this image and the story by G.P.Sippy himself was built around Meena and her antics.In addition there was good music,but still the film did not do well and was discarded in no time.May be people could not digest her going away to Pakistan.

Seth Gulabchand (Om Prakash0 strongly believed that men are a superior species than women and they can do anything they want,but the women have no right to do anything else except worshipping and dying for husband.As his wealth was growing,so also his bad habits and indulgence was escalating. He used to be among wine,women and other pleasures for satisfying basar instincts.

Once he promises a dancer that he will marry her.He believed that men can have as many wives they want.However,a smart girl Rita asks him if he would tolerate the same kind of behaiour from his own wife,and what will happen if she decided to marry one more man.

This question starts troubling Seth ji and when he sleeps that night,he gets a looooong dream-which in fact is the real cinema. In this he sees that his wife(Meena) transforms herself from a timid housewife to a Tomboyish chaalu girl,who dresses and sings and dances with men,and does almost everything that he had been doing.On top it all,she also chooses a Man to marry once more.The marriage cards are printed and distributed in the name of Sethji.When the actual day of her marriage comes,Sethji wakes up to find his dutiful wife doing Gid’s Aarti.

This dream changes the attitude of Sethji and he joins her in the Aarti.

One song from this movie has been discussed in the blog in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is a duet which is sung by Geeta Dutt and Rafi. Only the audio of this song is available but it is obvious that the song is picturised on Meena Shorey and Johny Walker.

Jaan Nisaar akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by O P Nayyar. What a lovely duet it is !


Song-Yahaan ham wahaan tum (Shrimati 420)(1956) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Rafi, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-O P Nayyar

Lyrics

Yahaan ham wahaan tum
mera dil huaa hai gum
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan
yahin ham yahin tum
kahin ho na jaayen gum

bolo kahaan
arre yahaan
bolo kahaan
arre yahaan

mera dil thha haseen
mera dil thha jawaan
liya kisne churaa
gaya haay kahaan
kahaan dil hai tera
kahaan tera jigar
yahaan khud hi nahin
hamen apni khabar
kahaan dil hai tera
kahaan tera jigar
yahaan khud hi nahin
hamen apni khabar

mat haay karo
mera naak mein dam
yahaan ham wahaan tum
mera dil huaa hai gum
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan

yahaan dekh liya
wahaan dekh liya
nahin haay kahin
mere dil ka pata
chalo thheek huaa
tali sar se bala
aji jaan bachi
karo shukr adaa
chalo thheek huaa
tali sar se bala
aji jaan bachi
karo shukr adaa

aisa na kaho
tumhen meri qasam
yahaan ham wahaan tum
mera dil huaa hai gum
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan
bolo kahaan
aji yahaan

yahin ham yahin tum
kahin ho na jaayen gum

bolo kahaan
arre yahaan
bolo kahaan
arre yahaan
