Huaa kyaa qusoor jo hamse ho door

Posted on: September 13, 2012


“Basant” (1942) was a Bombay Talkies production. It was directed by Amiya Chakraborty. The movie had Ulhas, Mumtaz Shanti, Pramila, Jagannath, Suresh, Baby Mumtaz (Madhubala), Kanu Roy, Pithawala etc in it.

Here is a song from this movie. Internet sources mention this song as being sung by Parul Ghosh, but the voice is decidedly Amirbai Karnataki’s, so I will consider this song as sung by Amirbai Karnataki.

P L Santoshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pannalal Ghosh. It is believed that the actual music director of this movie was Anil Biswas, but for contractual reasons he could not have taken credit for that so his brother in law Pannalal Ghosh (who was married to Anil Biswas’s sister Parul) was credited as the music director.

Videos of several songs of “Basant” (1942) are available, but this song is an exception. So it is difficult to tell how and on whom this song is picturised.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the picturisation of this song.

Song-Huaa kyaa qusoor jo hamse ho door (Basant)(1942) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-P L Santoshi, MD-Pannalal Ghosh

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

hua kya qusoor
jo hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoor
jo hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoor

jaam-e-mohabbat
hamaari gali mein
jaam-e-mohabbat
hamaari gali mein
jaam-e-mohabbat
hamaari gali mein
chhalkaate chale
chhalkaate chale tum lutaate chale
haa chhalkaate chale tum lutaate chale
hamaara hi dil tarkaate chale
bass hamara hi dil tarkaate chale
kaisi saza hai yeh mere huzoor
hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoor
jo hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoour

auron ne pi aur lage jhoomne
haa lage jhoomne
auron ne pi aur lage jhoomne
haa lage jhoomne
hamne bhi pi
hamne bhi pi per na aayaa suroor
hamne bhi pi per na aayaa suroor
aisi pilaao ki peete rahe ham
ki peete rahe ham
aisi pilaao ki peete rahe ham
ki peete rahe ham
ki jeete rahe ham
nashe mein ho choor
nashe mein ho choor
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoor
jo hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankhon ke noor
hua kya qusoor
jo hamse ho door
jaan e jigar
aankho ke noor
hua kya qusoor

I believe music directors (PG& Arun Kumar) wanted each and every actor to sound differently. So one singer did not sing for all the actors. Mumtaz Shanit had Parul Ghose as playback singer.
Pratima singing was done by Amiriibai.
Mumtaz Ali got the voice of Arun Kumar and
Ullasji had Khan Mastana as his singing voice.
It would very simple with the video of this song,
but w/o video, it’s kind of confusing… (to me anyway).

The voice in the second stanza of the song does resembles that of Amirbai Karnataki. When I compared with the song ‘umeed unse kyaa thi…’ from this film sung by Parul Ghosh, I feel this song is sung by Parul Ghosh.

Atul ji,
You are right on both the counts.
First,HFGK says that Though name of P.Ghosh is mentioned,the real composer was Anil Biswas,according to AB himself.P.Ghosh did the orchestration and background music for this film.
Secondly,though on page 43 of Vol II of HFGK,the singer’s name for the above song is given as Parul Ghosh,on page 636,in the Corrigendum,it is corrected as Amir Bai Karnataki.

Thanks a lot for this information. It also shows that most sites do not bother to go into details, viz reading the corrigendum, or even listening to the song itself.

Anand ji,
First Hindi playback song was”Main khush hons chaun…” from Dhoopchhaon-1935 and it was sung by Harimati,Suprova sarkar,and Parul ghosh as a chorus song.hence all three were the First Singers.
