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

Dhitang dhitang boley

Posted on: September 26, 2012


This article is written by Sadanand Kamath, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

AAWAAZ (1956) was a Mehboob Production film directed by Zia Sarhadi. I do not know the story of the film but when Mehboob and Zia Sarhadi come together for a film, one can expect that with their leftist ideologies, the film would depict the class conflict between rich and poor. The film had Rajendra Kumar and Nalini Jaywant in the lead roles with Usha Kiran, Zul Vellani, Nazir Hussain, Leela Chitnis, D K Sapru, Jagdeep, Anwar Hussain, etc in the supporting roles. With a story of class conflicts and Nazir Hussain and Leela Chitnis in the film, one can visualise that the film would have a lot of melodramatic contents.

The film had 10 songs written among the four lyricists – one each by Shailendra, Prem Dhawan, Vishwamitra Adil and rest by Zia Sarhadi. Of the 10 songs, 5 were deleted before the film was released [Source : salilda.com ]. I guess, this may be a sort of record for a film with most number of deleted songs. Salil Choudhury, who was also a sympathiser of the leftist ideology during his student days was the music director for the film.

I have a chosen for discussion one of the deleted songs from this film ‘dhitang dhitang bole dil tere liye dole’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar and chorus. The song is written by Prem Dhawan. The tune of the song is, more or less the same that was used in a Bangla folk dance song sung by Hemant Kumar and chorus and composed by Salil Choudhury. In the Hindi version, Salil Choudhaury has improvised the orchestration by playing the dholak beats used in tamaasha form of dances in Maharashtra with dash of Goan music. The tune is not only melodious, it has a foot tapping rhythm also. Though these two songs were composed more than 50 years back, both the versions seem to be still popular during Navratri and Durga Puja time as a dance song if I go by the number of video clips uploaded on YT during the last 2-3 years. After nearly 20 years of this film’s release, Salil Choudhury used this tune in one of the songs theyyam theyyam thaare sung by P Susheela, P Jaychandran and chorus for a Malayalam film ‘Neelaponman’ (1975).

By the way, if my memory serves me right, the music played on a mandolin/guitar preceding the song was used as a signature tune for one of the radio programmes – either on Radio Ceylon or Vivid Bharati during late 50s and 60s. But I do not remember for which radio programme the signature tune was used.

Enjoy the song as a prelude to Lata Mangeshkar’s birth day on September 28th.

Lyrics

dhitang dhitang boley
dil tere liye doley
o sanam hauley hauley
kaisaa jaadoo kiye jaaye
dhitang dhitang boley
dil tere liye doley
o sanam hauley hauley
kaisaa jaadoo kiye jaaye

jaane yaa na jaane
tu maane yaa na maane
ham tere hi deewaane hain
tu chaahe yaa na chaahe
jaane yaa na jaane
tu maane yaa na maane
ham tere hi deewaane hain
tu chaahe yaa na chaahe

aaye re aaye
pyaar ke din aaye
dhad dhad dil dhadke
nazar sharamaaye
aaye re aaye
pyaar ke din aaye
dhad dhad dil dhadke
nazar sharamaaye

kabhi tadpaaye
kabhi tarsaaye
ye dil ki lagi tujhko
kaun samajhaaye
kabhi tadpaaye
kabhi tarsaaye
dil ki lagi tujhko
kaun samajhaaye

aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye

dhinak na dhin dhinaa
do din kaa hai jeenaa
o sanam tere binaa mose
rahaa nahi jaaye
dhinak na dhin dhinaa
do din kaa hai jeenaa
o sanam tere binaa mose
rahaa nahi jaaye

aankhon ke paimaane
pi le o mastaane
jo piye wohi jaane
ajee kaise jiye jaaye
aankhon ke paimaane
pi le o mastaane
jo piye wohi jaane
ajee kaise jiye jaaye

aaye re aaye
pyaar ke din aaye
dhad dhad dil dhadke
nazar sharmaaye
aaye re aaye
pyaar ke din aaye
dhad dhad dil dhadke
nazar sharmaaye

kabhi tadpaaye
kabhi tarsaaye
ae dil ki lagi tujhko
kaun samjhaaye
kabhi tadpaaye
kabhi tarsaaye
dil ki lagi tujhko
kaun samjhaaye

aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye
aaye re aaye

The most popular & my favourite, song of this movie was ‘Arrarum, Tarrarum, Duniya mein kaise kaise gham…’ was sung by Kishore Kumar & if I remember correctly, it was picturised on Anwar Hussein!

Kamath ji,
Thank you for posting this song which has some connection to HEMANT KUMAR,since today happens to be Hemant kumar’s DEATH ANNIVERSARY.
Secondly,I had made FARMAISH of this song on 2-8-2012,giving details and some information about this song.You can see that for additional info.
There was a SIMHALESE (Sri Lankan) song also on this tune,which is available on UT.
Further there are 10 songs in this film and ALL 10 songs are present in the film,including the above song.I do not know how Salilda.com has given an information that 5 songs were deleted. This is the problem with private(non official) sites run on composer’s name.Their informations are not that trustworthy and have to be cross checked first.
I have seen this movie and also written about it on this Blog on 4-10-2011
The Hindi Film Geet Kosh lists ALL 10 songs with Record Nos. and other details and without any comments of deletion of 5 songs.

I think what they probably might have meant is that, these songs were either not picturized in the movie or may be later on deleted from the VCD/DVD of the movie. The movie in its current available form has 6 songs filmed out of 10 listed on the original soundtrack, as far as I know.

I also think the lyricist info for the movie, Kamath Ji has listed is not correct.

Bluefire ji,

As everyone knows,the VCD/DVDs many times delete many songs for their own reasons,which not necessarily means that the original film did not have those songs.
I have personally seen this film on big screen in the late 50s with ALL 10 songs intact in the film.
Besides,if now 6 songs are available in the DVDs,it means more than 5 songs were there in the film positively.

There were 4 lyricists in this film, Zia Sarhadi,Prem Dhavan,Shailendra and Vishwamitra Adil.
The above song is written by Prem Dhavan.

Yes Arunji, 6 songs are definitely filmed, and soundtrack definitely consists 10 songs. No dispute there. Like I was saying, may be they just confused removal of songs from VCD to deletion of songs, and that too 6-4 versus 5-5. You were lucky to have watched all these songs filmed, which rest of us wont be able to.

Above song is Prem Dhawan.

Shailendra/Zia Sarhadi/Vishwamitra Adil, have 3 songs each.

Oh! I missed to read your Farmaish with details about the film and song..
It sounded odd to me that as many as 5 songs were deleted from the film ‘before release’ [words in parenthesis are that of salilda.com]. Since I do not have HGK, I had no means of verifying this.

Kamath Ji, u may want to use myswar.com. It seems they have religiously entered all info (related to Soundtrack) from HFGK (for years 1951-1980) on their website

Regarding this particular movie, all 10 songs are available on YT, 6 as video and other 4 as audio only.

Regards.
