Prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori

Posted on: September 1, 2012


“Dhoop Chhaaon” (1935) was a New Theatre Production. It was directed by Nitin Bose. The movie had Pahadi Sanyal, Uma Shashi, K C Dey etc.

This movie was the first movie to use the technique of playback singing. Prior to that, actors had to record their songs “live” while shooting for the movie. And it was no longer necessary for actors to be good singers. This movie in fact is one of the few occasions where K L Saigal sang songs which was not picturised on himself.

As many as four songs of “Dhoop Chhaaon” (1935) have been discussed in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Pahadi sanyal and Uma Shashi and this song is picturised on them as well. Pt Sudashan is the lyricist.

What a wonderful song it is ! A quintessential “puraani film ka geet” ! It magically transports the listener to the era of 1930s when playback singing was its infancy. Despite technology being quite primitive at that time, the recording quality is amazing. And the voice quality of the two singers can only be marvelled at. And the lyrics of this song are quite nice indeed. Overall, this song is a priceless gem.

Pankaj Mullick as well as R C Boral are mentioned as the music directors of this movie in various sites. I request our knowledgeable to throw more light on this matter. R C Boral is the music director of the other songs that I have discussed in the past so I have gone with the name of R C Boral as the music director of this song too.

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

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori
prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori

prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori
prem ka saagar prem ki naiyya
prem musaafir prem khavaiyya
prem ka saagar prem ki naiyya
prem musaafir prem khavaiyya
prabhu bin mora kaun rakhaiyya
prabhu bin mora kaun rakhaiyya

shok kare tu kyu ati bhaari
shok kare tu kyu ati bhaaari
ye naiyya kabhi na gali jal mein
ye naiyya kabhi na gali jal mein
mori chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori
prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori

chaar taraf chhaaya andhiyaara
soojhe naahi door kinaara
chaar taraf chhaaya andhiyaara
soojhe naahi door kinaara
thhar-thhar kaanpe mann matwaara
thhar-thhar kaanpe mann matwaara

kyu itni man ki kamzori
kyu itni man ki kamzori
ye naiyya hamesha phali jal mein
ye naiya hamesha phali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori
prem ki naiyya chali jal mein mori
chhoti si naiyya chali jal mein mori

Atul ji,
According to the HFGK,there were 2 composers.R.C.Boral and Pankaj Mullick.
Out of the 10 songs of the film,only ONE song is credited to R.C.Boral (The first song of Playback-Main khush hona chahun),leading to a conclusion that all other songs were composed by Pankaj Mullick,including the above song.

Thanks for this information. So it means that wikipedia entry about R C Boral being the music director of this movie is incorrect.

I just watched a short video clip of the interview of Vijay Kumar Balkrishnan, Film Historian who was talking about the first playback song in this film.

few years back I add this duet in my mp3 & in one of my cd for the car.
I was thinking this was Uma devi (Tuntun)…never search for this duet…since I was listening time to time.
Now it makes pefect sense…as she is Uma Shashi singing
Very high-quality and impressive audio recording.
From my younger age I was familiar with name of this film.
(1) We had gramophone record of “Manki aankhe khol”
(2) My mom had a silk saree with heavy border called ” Dhoop Chhaaon” means two shades in one saree. The color was blue and grey. Some angle it look blue and other time more to greyish looking. And only few times you can see embossed flowers in it.
Any way, this saree got the name from this film and was popular in early 40’s.
