Aa aaja o jaane wafaa

Posted on: September 8, 2012


Today (8 september) is the birthday of S Mohinder, a music director of yesteryears who gave us some wonderful songs in the golden era of Hindi movie music. Born in 1925, S Mohinder composed music in movies like “Sehra” (1948), “Jeewan Saathi” (1949), “Shrimatiji”(1952), “Bahaadur” (1953), “Paapi” (1955), “Naata”(1955), “Shehzaada” (1955), “Kaarwaan” (1956), “Shirin Farhad” (1956), “Mehlon Ke Khwaab” (1960), “Picnic” (1966) etc. He is one of those music directors who were criminally underutilised by the Hindi movie music industry.

This blog has as many as 33 songs composed by S Mohinder. He did not get the opportunity to work in too many movies, but I hope that he has worked in enough Hindi movies to enable us to discuss at least a century of his songs in this blog.

“Shirin Farhad” (1956) is one his better known movies. This movie was a Super Pictures production. It was directed by Aspi Irani. The movie had Madhubala, Pradeep Kumar, P. Kailash, Kamal, Ram Avtaar, Uma Dutt, H. Prakash, Ameeta, Shakuntala etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog in the past, and that includes the timeless classic song Guzra hua zamaana aata nahin dobaara.

On the occasion of S Mohinder’s 87th birthday today, here is a song from ‘Shirin Farhad” (1956). This song has two versions. One version is a Hemant Kumar solo whereas the other version has the voices of Hemant Kumar and Lata. The song is picturised on Pradeep Kumar and Madhubala.

Lyrics of this song are written by Tanvir Naqvi.

The lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.
