Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

Posted on: November 6, 2012


“Ek Phool Do Maali” (1969) was a Goel Cine Corporation Movie. It was produced and directed by Devendra Goel. The movie had Sanjay Khan, Sadhna, Balraj Sahni, Bobby, Manorama, Shyam Kumar, Brahmachari, Brahm Bharadwaj, Praveen Paul, Abu Baker, David Abraham, Durga Khote, Shabnam etc in it.

As can be guessed from the title, the movie was about a child and two men in his life, one is his biological father (Sanjay Khan) who disappears (due to unavaidable reasons of course) after a one night stand with Sadhana. Balraj Sahni, a person who cannot become a father after an accident shelters Sadhana. when he finds that she is pregnant, he offers to marry her to save her and her child from the stigma that is bound to come their way otherwise. Balraj Sahni turns out to be an extremely doting father for the child.

Towards the end of the movie, it turns out that Sanjay Khan was not really dead and he returns back. That naturally complicates matters for everyone. Sanjay Khan and Sadhana may be old flames, but what about the child who regards Balraj Sahni as his father. And what about Balraj Sahni who came to the rescue of Sadhana and her child when their future was at its bleakest.

The movie goers (including me, who watched the movie on its rerun ten years later) cheer when Sanjay Khan opts to go away from the lives of the three of them.

“Ek Phool Do Maali” (1968) was a musical blockbuster. All its songs (all eight of them) went on to become extremely popular and remain so till this day.

As many as seven of these songs have been discussed in the past. Here is the eighth and final song from this movie. It is a beggar song which shows a blind beggar, with a younger companion, singing this song throughout the movie. The various stanzas of the songs depict the various stages in Balraj Sahni’s life. The first stanza takes place at a time when he is resigned to the fact that he cannot have children. At that time he takes exception to the song and asks the beggars not to sing this song infrint of his house because his house was destined to remain childless unlike the blessing that the song sought to convey (may you have a house full of kids).

The next stanza shows the same beggars singing the same song after some time. When they comes near Balraj Sahni’s house they realise that they had been warned not to sing this song in front of that house. They apologise to Balraj sahni. But Balraj Sahni is in a good mood. By that time he has Sadhana and the kid living with him. He encourages the beggars to sing the song, telling them that their blessing has indeed worked for him.

The last stanza of the song eulogises the “sacrifice” of Sanjay Khan who donated his ghar ka chirag to another ghar, and lighting up that :ghar”, while movie goers feel otherwise.

The song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. The song is written and composed by Ravi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

With this song, yet another movie joins the rank of movies with all its songs covered in the blog.

Rafi + Asha Bhonsle

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

kar de madad gareeb ki
tera sukhi rahey sansaar
bachchon ki kilkaari se
goonje saaraa gharbaar
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

bhookhe gareeb ki yeh hi duaa hai
aulaad waalo phoolo phalo
aulaad waalo phoolo phalo

tera ghar bachho se bhara rahey
yeh baug hamesa hara rahey
tera ghar bachhon se bhara rahe
yeh baug hamesa hara rahey

gudda gudiya baja motor
ik shor hamesa macha rahe
ik shor hamesa macha rahe
bhookhe gareeb ki yeh hi duwaa hai
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

bhookhe gareeb ki yeh hi duwaa hai
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

paise do paise se tumhaara
kuchh na ghatega daulat waalon
le lo duaaye nirdhan ki
dhan aur badhega daulat waalon

usi ko mila hai jag mein
jisne diya hai
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

jug-jug jiye tera laal
rahe khushhaal
sadaa tera naam karega
har pal jay-jaykaar kare sansaar
ye aise naam karega

bhalaayi ka badlaa bhalaayi mila hai
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

dhanya hai woh insaan
kare qurbaan jo dil ki saari khushiyaan
apne ghar ka deepak de kar
roshan kar de kisi ki duniya

woh insaan nahin hai
ek devta hai
woh insaan nahin hai
ek devta hai

aulaad waalon phoolo phalo
aulaad waalon phoolo phalo

Atul ji,

As I read the write up for this song, I find something amiss. I remember having seen this film as a very small child on the big screen, and have faint memories that the ending of the film is different that what you have indicated. So pulled out this film and quickly viewed the last scenes. And I find that I remembered correctly.

In the final scenes, the child is kidnapped. All three, Balraj Sahni, Sadhna and Sanjay follow the kidnapper. There is fight, the child is rescued, but Balraj Sahni is fatally injured. He reveals to Sanjay that he (Sanjay) is the real father of the child. And then duly passes away. Next scene is that Sadhna and Sanjay are at a school for the admission of the child. When asked for the father’s name, Sanjay puts down the name ‘Kailash Nath’ (i.e. Balraj Sahni). Then the three walk out of the school with the song playing in the background “Mere Baad Bhi Is Duniya Mein, Zinda Mera Naam Rahega”.

I am not sure if the producers released another version for the reruns. Because the version I have in my collection has the ending as described above.

Indeed the end is how you have described. I , as usual had forgotten much of the story when I had seen the movie.
