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

Meri dam bhar na paapan aankh lagi

Posted on: August 21, 2012


“Samrat” (1954) was a Filmistan production. It was directed by Najam Naqvi. The movie had Kamlesh Kumari, Mumtaz Ali, Ram Singh, Sapru, S. L. Puri, Randhir, Rehana, Ajit etc in it.

Here is a forgotten song from obscure movie. This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Only the audio of this song is available and so it is difficult to guess how and on whom this song is picturised. My guess is that this song could have been picturised on Rehanan. i request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

meri dam bhar na paapan
aankhh lagee

sagri rain jagee
meri dam bhar na paapan
aankh lagee

karejwaa maar lagee
main to rajaaji
sagri raain jagee
meri dam bhar na
meri dam bhar na paapan
aankhh lagee
main to rajaaji
sagri rain jagee

saari duniyaa to
nindiyaa mein soti rahee
main to shabnam ke sang sang
roti rahi
haaaye
saari duniyaa to
nindiyaa mein soti rahee
main to shabanam ke sang sang
roti rahi
mori ankhiyan se
haaaye
meri akhiyan se
ansuwan dhaar lagee
main to rajaaji
sagri rain jagee

sej phoolon ki
piyaa bin
naagan banee
bairi chandaa
chandaniyaa souten banee
haaaaye
sej phoolon ki
piyaa bin
naagan banee
bairi chandaa
chandaniyaa souten banee
thandi thandi
haaaye
thandi thandi hawaa
angaar lagee
main to rajaaji
sagri raain jagee
meri dam bhar na
meri dam bhar na paapan
aankhh lagee
main to rajaaji
sagri rain jagee

Atul ji,
SAMRAT-1954 was a film by Filmistan.Those days Ajit and Premnath were very fond of roles of rebels in a kingdom,sword fighting and the likes of it.many films with stories woven around kings,wicked Vazirs,beautiful princesses,a young rebel from the Aam janata etc were the staple of those days.India had gained Independence just 7-8 years ago and the acceptance of Kings,queens,Rajkumaris etc was still there.in fact such films were made almost till 1969,when Indira Gandhi abolished the states,Rajas,and maharajas by stopping their purses paid by the Govt.
This was a film directed by NAJAM NAQVI,who started as a continuity man with Bombay Talkies.His original name of Syed Najmul husain Naqvi was changed to Najam Naqvi here only,as there was a famous actor Najmul Hasan already.
Najam Naqvi was an actor,producer and Director.He directed 12 films from punarmilan-1940 to Samrat-1954.After this film he migrated to Pakistan where also he directed 6 films till 1966(Payal ki jhankaar).He died in Lahore,Pakistan on 26-1-1982.
Nasir hussain,who became a famous Director later had written the S/Play and Dialogues of this film,along with Hamid bhatt.The MD was Hemant Kumar,ably assisted by another future top composer-Ravi.
The cast of this film was Ajit,Rehana Kamlesh kumari(Ju.) etc.Another future composer KANU ROY had also acted in this film.He did the role of Kanu-the side kick of the hero.
Guman Singh(Randhir) is Diwan of the kingdom but has connections with a Pirate chief Tunda.Sagar(Ajit) and two of his friends,Kanhaiya and Kanu,learn from a wounded sailor about the activities of Guman.Bijli(Kamlesh Kumari) a dancer in a pub of pirate and a mute lover of Sagar also fives similar info.Sagar approaches the King and warns him.But he is misunderstood and jailed as Guman is engaged to the Rajkumari.The Rajkumari(Rehana) has doubts about Guman and she finds out all about him in disguise by visiting pirate’s island.After she tells her fathe,Guman is called.Sensing trouble,Guman captures King,puts him in prison,replaced by his look alike who promptly sentences Sagar to Death.Rajkumari and Sagar escape but she is captured and made to dance on the Pirate’s ship.Sagar attacks the ship.rescues her,then turns to Guman,killing him in a sword duel and releasing King from prison.
Sagar and Rajkumari marry and he is the new Diwan now.
