Hamaare dil se na jaana

Posted on: December 19, 2012


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

The other day a song “na toofan se khelo na saahil se khelo” from the film (Udan Khatola-1955) was posted in the blog. It was 2-3 days later that I saw that song video and heard the song. I had heard it before and but dont remember seeing it before. Having seen that movie long back on Doordarshan. ‘O door ke musafir ham ko bhi saath le le re’ and ‘ dil ka salaam le jaa ulfat ka jaam lejaa’ are the songs which I recognise as from this film. Rest few songs I know but could not associate from this film.

In the song ‘ na toofan se khelo na saahil se khelo’ some one is shown swimming in the river and Dilip kumar is lip synching the Rafi song. Who was swimming was not shown. I thought some of the shots were on location rather than studio shots as i remmebered.

Than I suddenly remembered a song where Nimmi is singing with that musical instrument whose name I am not able to recall now. It may be called ‘dilruba’ or ‘ roobab’. Dilip kumar is sitting and listening to the song with the ‘ vamp’ like character who plays the queen/princess in the movie. I thought I will check the list of songs and see the song sometime. And did not get around to see if that song is there or not. Than with Pradeep ji’s info on remaining song, I thought I will see if I can find something which might appeal to me and prompt me to write a post.

I tried to find the first song i.e. ‘ghar aaya mehmaan koyi’, but it was not available on youtube. At least no video/audio link was readily available on searching with lyrics. Than I tried the next one i.e. ‘hamaare dil se na jaana’. I did not remember this song from those words, but when I found the link to the video and saw it, just the word ‘hamaare…….’ in lata’s voice was enough to trigger the songs mukhdaa, complete with alaap in between. At first I thought there must be some mistake, this song must have been posted. But luckily , it is not. I am for one, most happy that all this time this one most melodious of lata songs is still waiting on the side lines. So it enabled me to revisit the scenes I remembered from long back and song also I may have heard after a long time. It was like rediscovering a forgotten dream sequence.

As Nimmi is singing the song on that instrument, Dilip Kumar is sitting with the queen, actress is ‘Surya kumari’ I guess from the cast. Nimmi is trying to give a subtle message and warn Dilip Kumar, first by pampering the male ego with ‘sun lo ji paiyyan padoon’ and ‘dekho ji binti karoon’, and ‘duniyaa se bhed kabhi dil ke na kholnaa’ and ‘jhooti hai preet yehaan’. Than while seeing the song, I wondered if it is before ‘O door ke musaafir’ or after, in the movie. Than I saw the post of ‘O door ke musaafir’, had my answer in one of the comments that it was the last scene of the film. She is sacrificing herself to save the village from the storm in the river(this bit I rememeber myself). If such sacrificing acts of humans could really avert the natural disasters than ‘baat hi kya thhi’.

Chalo, happy ending or not, it was a movie. And thankfully we are in such times when such beliefs and practices are not relevant or practised.

If I had not seen this song knowing it was from this film, would have thought it to be a Shankar-Jaikishan creation. I feel it is S-J type of tune and alaap in between. I know it is created by the team of Naushad and Shakeel Badayuni. Also I notice that clear diction while singing the words, of Lata Mangeshkar. I also wanted to see Nimmi getting up from her perch, and starting to dance, so that we could have been spared a few shots of Dilip kumar’s forehead furrowed with lines.

the queen in this song is T.Surya kumari (Tanguturi Surya kumari). She was a Telugu actress and singer too who acted in a few Telugu films.She also sang a few private songs. She was grand daughter of Tanguturi Prakasam who was chief minister of Andhra state & a great freedom fighter too.

That is a lovely post Nahm. I love all the songs of Uran Khatola.

I have not seen the movie, unfortunately (or fortunately).

I am also surprised when I find a well known song not posted on this site. But it just reminds me of the humungous number of songs out there waiting to be posted. With the help of dedicated writers like you and Sudhirji and Arunji, Atul will soon be able to bridge the gap I am sure 🙂

There is an ocean out there of known and unknown song. This journey is so much pleasurable, dont you agree ? . Always beats watching things like ‘Big boss’ on the idiot box.

Glad that you liked this post. Again beats a ‘ like ‘ notifiication on facebook.

The instrument Nimmi is playing is neither Dilruba or Rabaab, but a harp- like instrument, more like Swarmandal, used by classical singers.

Nahmji,
Sorry for the late appreciation. It feels gr8 to see your posts with lots of info and melodious/memorable songs. All songs of Udan Khatola are very close to my heart. I must have seen this movie when I was a teen, so didn’t like the movie then but enjoyed all songs. Thanks for the post.

Melodious /Memorable song is the main thing. There are two more songs left from this movie. So kya khayaal hai ?

Nahm Ji, you manage to pick some really good gems out there, and they also happen to be as mentioned earlier by Prakash Ji, “how come not yet posted”. I think you are the star of identifying this category of songs :). Thank you.

By the way, the 2 songs remaining from the movie are.. “Haal E Dil Main Kya Kahoon” and “Ghar Aaya Mehmaan Koi” both sung by Lata.

I too feel instrument is harp …..surmandal may be descendant of Qanun Harp! Suriyya is shown playing similar in Sohrab & Rustam ….’Dil Main Ajab Dastaan Ho…..’
I feel Naushad touch is very much evident from 0.36 onwards…..what a beautiful song…..thanks a ton Nahm ji!

Sir,
Thank you very much for this link. Now i have seen this part, i want to see the whole film. ‘Ghar aaya mehmaan koyi ‘ is sweet and melodious.
It is treat to hear Lata Mangeshkar’s singing words in her crystal clear voice. No background music, chorus voices etc. can camouflage her voice.

Thanks again.
