Husn ki bahaaren liye

Posted on: January 4, 2013

“Benazir” (1964) was produced by Bimal Roy and directed by S Khalil. The movie had Ashok KUmar, Meena Kumari, Shashi Kapoor, Tanuja, Nirupa Roy, Tarun Bose, Lata Sinha, Asit Sen, Paul Mahendra, Durga Khote, Bela Bose etc in it.

Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopedia, has to say about this movie:

BENAZIR(1964) was produced by Bimal Roy(NOT directed by),and was Directed by an ordinary director S.Khalil,who had earlier directed some nondescript films like Jhankar, Nai zindagi, Bhaijaan, Sartaj, Gunehgar, Deewar-55 and Shahkar etc.

Benazir (Meena Kumari) is a dancer of Lucknow, who is loved by Nawab Afsar Hussain(Ashok Kumar),though he has a good looking and khandani Biwi, Begum Sarwari(Nirupa Roy), at home. Benazir secretly loves younger brother of Nawabsaab, Anwar nawab(Shashi kapoor) who is-unknown to Benazir-already engaged to Shahida(Tanuja), younger sister of Begum Sarwari.

Anwar hates Benazir holding her responsible for Nawabsaab’s disturbed household. Once he goes to Benazir and is scolding her when, instigated by illwishers, the Nawabsaab comes there, finds them together and gets a heart attack. The engagement of Anwar to Shahida is broken etc. The film ends on a tragic note.

Run of the mill story, weak direction and non interference of Bimal Roy in the film’s development saw to it that the film fails at the Box office.

As many as five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata and it is picturised on Meena Kumari. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by S D Burman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Lyrics(Provided by nahm)

hmmm hmm hmm hmm
husn ki bahaaren liye
aaye thhe sanam
kaisi badnaseebi huyi
mil sake na ham
oo ooooo
husn ki bahaaren liye
aaye thhe sanam
kaisi badnaseebi huyi
mil sake na ham

ooo oooo
ooooo ooooo
ooo ooo
oooo ooo

un ka karam bhi aaj sitam
ho ke reh gayaa aa aa
ooo ooo
un ka karam bhi aaj sitam
ho ke reh gayaa
ik naghma lab pe aaya
magar kho ke reh gayaa
halki si ek khushi hai to
halkaa sa ek gham
husn ki bahaaren liye
aaye thhe sanam
kaisi badnaseebi huyi
mil sake na ham

aaa aaaa
aaaaa aaaaa
aaa aaaa
gulshan mein phir naseem-e-sahar
jaane kab chale ae ae
ooo oooo
gulshan mein phir naseem-e-sahar
jaane kab chale
ummeed ka diyaa mere ghar
jaane kab jale ae ae
na jaane dil ki raah mein
kab aayen wo qadam
husn ki bahaaren liye
aaye thhe sanam
kaisi badnaseebi huyi
mil sake na ham
mil sake na ham

When ‘Benazir’ released, my friends in my neighbourhood and I rushed to watch it. You see, this entire song was shot at a very posh house on our road in Khar, in Bombay. The house was named ‘Ashiyana’ and belonged to the Lakhanpal family, the owner of the famous Murphy Radio. We had clambered on to the top of the high walls of this sprawling house and had been so thrilled watching the shooting of this song. Meena Kumari had looked so ethereally beautiful as she ambled in the garden ‘singing’ this song. When we saw the movie at the Neptune theatre in Bandra, we were in for a double disappointment! The movie was almost a poor man’s ‘Mere Mehboob’. And this song had been cut from the movie! I left Bombay in 1971 but even forty two years later, this song brings a smile and pleasant memories of watching the great Meena Kumari……
