Amiya halaahal madbhare shwet shyaam ratnaar

Posted on: July 24, 2012


“Rani Roopmati” (1959) was a Ravikala Chitra Production. It was produced and directed by S N Tripathi. The movie had Bharat Bhushan, Nirupa Roy, Nalini Chonker, Ullhas, B. M. Vyas, Babu Raje, Bharat Bhushan, Amarnath etc in it.

This movie was a B grade movie and music of such songs typically failed to find much favour with music lovers. But the music of this movie was so outstanding that everyone sat up and took notice. One of its songs, viz. Aa laut ke aaja mere meet became the sixth most popular song of the year in the Binaca geetmala final of the year.

As many as five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is another song from this movie. This song is a Rafi Lata duet and it is picturised on Bharat Bhushan and Nirupa Roy. I heard this song for the first time only just now, and I was left stunned. This song should have a much better known song among music lovers. This song is a semi classical song par excellence. Listening to this song will leave music lovers spell bound.

Here is this forgotten gem from “Rani Roopmati” (1959). Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by S N Tripathi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

This kind of composition goes straight to the heart. Keeps the spiritualism and consciousness within.

Superb composition by S N Tripathi and singing by Rafi and Lata.

I wouldnt call this a b-grade movie. Lots of folks dont have high opinion of the acting abilities of Bharat Bhushan, but he was still highly successful in 50s and did movies with leading actresses, like Meena Kumari, Madhubala, etc. Before he blew up his money with Jahan Ara, he was quite rich and its said that whenever he went for a shooting, he would be driving in one car and his food would be traveling by a separate car.

Just like Dara Singh in 60s opposed to Dharmendra/Manoj Kumar,etc, same can be said of movies made by Mahipal, Ranjan, etc, that those were b-grade types, but not for Bharat Bhushan movies, in my opinion.

Bharat Bhushan was a well-read man with his own book library, and tried to use that knowledge in his movies to the best of his abilities. I mean, is there anyone else who played so many important mythological/historical characters? Just to name a few:

Baiju Bawra, Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Mirza Ghalib, Rani Rupmati, Samrat Chandragupta, Sohni Mahiwal, Kavi Kalidas, Angulimal, Nawab Sirazuddaula, Krishna Bhakt Sudama, etc.

I am still looking for the original writer of poem-“Amiya Halaahal Madbhare-” Bharat Vyas just adopted this for “Rani Roopmati” other part of lyric is by Bharat Vyas.

I heard & saw these lines of the song-‘amiya Halahal Madbhare’ (Only part of the song) in Hindi Film “Kavi Kalidas (1959)” starring Bharat Bhushan & Nirupa Roy, Lyrics Bharat Vyas and Music S.N. Tripathi. Bharat Bhushan in the role of Kavi Kalidas, who was earlier depicted as a person with low knowledge, automatically recites the above lines on seeing the heroine coming after a bath. And then onwards he develops poetic talents and later becomes one of the great poets.
