Naiyya teri majhdhaar

Posted on: September 12, 2012


“Maajhi” songs are normally associated with S D Burman and R D Burman, but here is a “maajhi” song composed by Shankar Jaikishan. This song is from “Aawaara” (1951).

I am aware of most songs from “Aawaara” (1951) since they are all well known, but I was not much aware of this song. I may have heard this song before but I was not aware of its details. It is only now that I have come to know that this song is from “Aawaara” (1951).

This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. I am unable to identify the actors who take turns lip syncing in Rafi’s voice. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

This “maajhi” cum boat song is written by Shailendra and the music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

It was on this day in 1971 that Jaikishan, then only 41 years of age, had breathed his last, much to the shock of movie and music lovers. It was difficult to imagine that he was just 20. His music team of Shankar Jaikishan had dominated Hindi movie music scene for two decades and their reign almost seemed permanent before their era finally came to an end.

The death of Jaikishan marked the end of a glorious and memorable chapter in Hindi movie music. With this death, the pair of Shankar Jaikishan was over. Shankar continued to compose as the same brand name of Shankar Jaikishan, but it was no longer the same. He no longer got the same big banners , including R K banner and found himself getting confined to lesser banners.

Jaikishan was one of several Hindi movie talents who died young, but they left their indelible mark behind. He died 41 years ago, but to me it seems like a recent happening. I recall that his death was a big news in movie magazines of those days and magazines had carried special articles. As a pre teen kid, I was not supposed to even read these magazines, but I had read whatever I could. I wonder if any of these magazines are still lying around somewhere. Going through such ld magazines give us an opportunity to relive those days.

On the occasion of Jaikishan’s death anniversary, here is this song from “Aawaara” (1951). Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.

This song is the ninth song from “Aawaara” (1951) to be discussed in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us about the as yet undiscussed songs from this movie, so that we may be able to cover them in the blog.

Hi Singer on the screen is Premnath (Yes Premnath)

Yes, Premnath is one of the actors, but there are others too.

Other one is a Marathi actor. (Hope my guess is right) I have seen him in few movies, lekin ab 30 saal ke baad kuchh yaad nahin aa raha hai. Arunji, help please.

I think this is the best picturised maajhi song ever. The usage of silhouettes and light & shade is superb. The long shot of the fleet of boats and the chorus was sight for the sore eyes. The songs beautifully conveys the oncoming storm in the life of the lawyer and his wife. One must doff our hats to Director, Raja Nawathe.
Was it the young Shailendra as the maajhi?

Like

Nitin Shah-ji, the young lawyer and his wife are Prithviraj Kapoor and Leela Chitnis. By the way, S~J had given another beautiful ‘naiyya’, ‘maajhi’ song in ‘Chori Chori’…..”Us paar sajan, is paar aahe, le chal o majhi kinare, kinare…..” Lata,as usual, was just great in that song.

Fantastic. I was not even aware there was a Rafi solo in Awara.

Maniji,
Ya but this takes the cake

Are you eluding to Kashinath Ganekar who looks uncannily like the maajhi

Like

Yes Nitinbhai, you said it right. He looks like Kashinath Ghanekar, who was in Abhilasha-68 with Nanda, Sanjay Khan. Remember the song “Waadiyan mera daaman…….” Lata version? I knew him as a Dr. Kashinath Ghanekar. Was he a physician or had a PH.D. degree? Hope someone knows.Thanks Nitinbhai.

khyati ji,
Dr.Kashinath Ghanekar was a DENTIST.
Further the actor in the above song is positively NOT Kashinath Ghanekar,because he started his acting career from Marathi Dramas and Films from 1960 onwards only.

But one site, mentions that he acted in dharam patni-53. I have no clue if it’s true and this movie is Hindi or Marathi. I want to know if he acted in any Hindi movie, other than Abhilasha. Remember watching his Marathi movies on DD in 70s.

Khyati ji,
Kashinath Ghanekar’s name does not appear in the credits of Dharma patni-53.Obviously,he was NOT in the film.

Kashinath acted in Daadi maa opposite Tanuja or ??(as Bina Roy`s son)(L.V.prasad productions)Am I right ??(Music by Roshan)He lip synced for “Ai maa teri soorat …bhagwaan ki moorat kyaa hogi…”

Kashinath Ghanekar also lip synced the song “Jaata hoon main mujhe ab na bulaana” in “Daadi Maa”

The previous reply was for Prakashji. The next name in my “DVDs to buy” list is this Daadi Maa movie, which I have never seen it. Hope I will find it.

Khyati ji,
Thank you for finding this song. I thought this boat song by Rafi was in ‘Chori Chori’. Looking for this song, i found this song https://atulsongaday.me/2011/07/18/tum-arbon-ka-her-pher-karne-waale-raam-jee/ . And it was hiding here in ‘Awaara’

There are not many song by S-J of this genre.

Nahmji,
I had heard this song when I was in teens. And then total blackout after coming to US. Thanks to internet, YT and enthusiasm of all who contributes these jewels on it. Hum NRI ke liye it’s like having a dessert (sweet) after every meal. I have used YT in past to dig so many of these songs, but it’s only after joining this blog, that I really found those gemstones. Don’t have enough words to show my gratitude to Atulji and you all who spends immense amount of time to share their joy with others like me. As I have mentioned earlier, NRIs have limited resources to cherish this memories, lekin aap sab logon ke pyaar se hum ko ye sab naseeb hota hai.
Ye gaana mere dil ke bahut karib hai. Love every part of it. And it’s by Rafi 🙂
BTW, I was thinking about you yesterday as don’t see your informative comments that often. Thanks for the appreciation.

Nitinbhai,
You don’t need to clarify. I got the message. Sometimes it happens when mind and pen don’t cooperate. 🙂
