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

Hum bechaare pyaar ke maare

Posted on: November 2, 2012


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

Imagine that you reached someplace where a song is playing, probably on a radio. But unfortunately it seems you have missed almost the entire song. What you hear as you get into listening range is just the last one or two lines playing. The words you hear do not seem to be part of the main song lyrics. And the words you hear do not seem to make a coherent sentence. You may just skip the thought and move on. Or if you are more Hindi-film-music inclined, you would start to wonder what the song was and who would have been the singer of this song, of which you have heard just a snippet.

Well in most cases, it might just be impossible to identify the song or the singer from a few disconnected words at the end of the song. But what if I tell you that the words that you heard are

dhing taka tak tikat takat
dhaan

I am very sure you will be able to jump to one conclusion at least. The song you missed is sung by Kishore da. 🙂

Welcome to a double celebration of 6th century milestone for two iconic artists from the Golden Era of Hindi film music. Yes, it is Kishore Da and Shankar Jaikishan. The film is ‘Rungoli’, a production from the year 1962, that settled into the hearts of cine going public, and in the long term memory of music lovers, because of 8 absolutely fabulous songs, some of which went on to become cult classics for the young romantics. Yes, I am referring to the iconic “Chhoti Si Ye Duniya Pehchaane Raaste Hain Tum Kahin To Miloge. . .”.

The film was produced under the banner of RSB Films, Bombay and is directed by Amar Kumar. The star cast consists of many famous names, including Vijayantimala, Kishore Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Durga Khote, Jeevan, Ulhaas, Jagdev, Iftekhar, Sadhna, Dhoomal, Krishna Kumar, Shakuntala Devi, Vrinda, Fazloo, Brahm Bhardwaj, Toofaani, Nimmo, Sulochana, Khursheed etc. The
music of this film has been created by the team of Shankar Jaikishan – Shailendra – Hasrat Jaipuri. This particular song is penned by Hasrat Saab.

From one of the earlier posts, I reproduced below the brief synopsis of the film, as posted by our in house encyclopedia, our dear Arun ji.

Rungoli was a film which became a hit, not because of its actors, plot or anything else, but only because its music was so good that all other faults of the film were forgotten. In the late 50s the pairing of Kishore Kumar and Vyjayantimala had become very popular, and this pair also plays the lead roles in this film.

Sevak Ram (Nazir Hussain) is a Bank Manager in Bombay. He has planned his life’s achievements on the pattern of the 5 year plans of the Indian government. He plans for building his own home, for his son’s education, daughter’s wedding, his own retirement and translation of Bhagwad Geeta into English. Along with his wife Shubhangi (Durga Khote), son Lattu
(Jagdev) and daughter Nirmala (Vijayntimala) he leads a happy family life. He starts the construction of his house and entrusts the job to his elder brother, Sadhu Ram (Jeevan) who is a partner of Dass (Dhumal) in a construction company.

Nirmala is in love with Kishore (Kishore kumar) who is the son of a Deputy Collector (Ulhaas). Kishore runs a business of supplying building materials, i.e. sand and cement etc. Lattu is in love with Rani (Sadhana-not the famous one). When the house is partly built, Sevak Ram goes to see it. Due to poor material and poor construction, a mishap occurs while Sevak Ram is inspecting the building. A balcony falls down and Sevak Ram is seriously injured. With their father in hospital, both Lattu and Nirmala become determined to fulfill their father’s dreams. Kishore also helps them. Sadhu Ram and Dass accuse Kishore of supplying poor material and have him put behind bars. Nirmala breaks her engagement with Kishore,
and is ready to marry somebody else. But Lattu, and Rani convince Nirmala and they plan to uncover the truth behind the mishap at the building site.

Rest of the film shows, how this team of youngsters performs when responsibility comes on their shoulders. They not only get Kishore released from jail, but also put the real culprits Sadhu Ram and Dass behind bars.

The end is as expected – all is well that ends well. Nirmala and Kishore, Lattu and Rani as well as Sevak Ram are happy to get what they wanted and the audience is happy to get good music !

Six songs from this film are already represented on this blog. Here is the seventh fun song from this film, sung and performed by Kishore Kumar. I have always maintained that the best person to perform Kishore Da’s songs on screen, is Kishore Da himself. This dictum is demonstrated once again in this song. The unique style of singing, the usual fast paced antics, the
perfect timing between the singing and the actions on screen, are accomplished as only Kishore Da himself can.

Enjoy this delightful singing performance by the one and only – Kishore Kumar. And let us celebrate the 600th post for him, as well as for Shankar Jaikishan.
