Dupatte ki girah mein baandh leejiye

A romantic song in the garden, with the hero and heroine moving between the flowers and around the trees, has been almost a fixture in the formula of social drama movies, almost from the word go. A difference that one can point out that in 30s and 40s, for such songs, the lead pair would be more sober with their movements, and probably be singing with very little movements. This changed in the 50s and 60s, when dancing, running and chasing each other became important elements of picturization of such songs.

‘Apne Huye Paraaye’ is a 1964 film that is a typical social formula film. Childhood sweethearts get separated as one family moves out of town. After growing up, they meet again, fall in love, marriage is almost within planning distance, when fate changes everything and the boy is forced to marry a friend of his beloved. The lady is left alone, with financial problems. She sorts them out, but in the process she loses health, and becomes ill. The gentleman is a doctor and comes calling to tend to her.

The couple convince the lady to move in with them, so they can take better care of her. Not at all a good idea, you would say. Very truly so, because the move creates unwanted but expected complications, which actually has serious, rather fatal consequences.

Mala Sinha, who started her career in 1954, has along the way, performed numerous tragic roles, even within the bounds of the formula. In the 1950s and 60s, she enjoyed great success and popularity, and was a much sought after leading lady. She continued to play the romantic heroine well into the 70s, but along the way, her portrayal of the tragic woman whom fate denies justice, have also been varied and numerous. It is not a small wonder that she chose such roles and yet continued to maintain her popularity with the public and producers. Starting with the legendary ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), the list of such films include ‘Phir Subah Hogi’ (1958), ‘Dhool Ka Phool’ (1959), ‘Dharamputra’ (1961), ‘Anpadh’ (1962), ‘Hariyali Aur Rasta’ (1962), ‘Gumrah’ (1963), ‘Jahaan Ara’ (1964), ‘Aasra’ (1966),
‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’ (1966), ‘Mere Huzoor’ (1968), ‘Holi Aayee Re’ (1970), and of course, ‘Apne Huye Paraaye’ (1964), the film under discussion. The list speaks of her prowess as an actress, playing the tragic roles, and yet continuing to be a much sought after heroine of romantic socials.

This film was produced under the banner of Mars and Movies, Bombay and is directed by Ajit Chakravarty. The star cast includes Mala Sinha, Manoj Kumar, Shasikala, Agha, Lalita Pawar, Sunder, Chaand Barq, Dulaari, Naina, Iftekhar, Ramayan Tiwari, Savitri, Padma Kumari etc. Music is by Shankar Jaikishan. The film has a total of 7 songs, whose writing is shared by Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri. This particular song is from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri.

The singing voice is that of Mukesh. Mukesh was the primary singing voice of Manoj Kumar till the mid sixties when Mahendra Kapoor takes over after the phenomena that was ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti’. But even then, for softer tones and emotional songs, Mukesh did continue to step in as the voice behind Manoj Kumar. So much so that in ‘Kranti’ (1981), Laxmikant Pyaarelal chose to bring in Nitin Mukesh as the voice for Manoj in the song ‘Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi’.

Not too well known a song, this one. But listening to it, and the voice of Mukesh, that by itself creates a magic that is hard to let pass by. Enjoy this generic romantic number as the love birds go through the garden routine. Enjoy.

Song-Dupatte ki girah mein baandh leejiye (Apne Huye Paraaye)(1964) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega

ye maana tum haseen ho naazneen ho
mere dil mein tumhin purdah-nasheen ho
kahaan le jaaogi tum aisi surat
kabhi to hogi saathi ki zaroorat
mera dil hai isey saathi banaa lo
isey apni nigaahon mein chhupaa lo
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh lijiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega

mere dil se na ab daaman bachaao
tumhen meri kasam hai paas aao
mera dil pyaar mein dooba huaa hai
tumhaari yaad mein khoyaa huaa hai
mera dil aap se badh kar haseen hai
haseenon ki tarah qaatil nahin hai
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega

jawaani tak hain ye saare jhamele
na honge aashiqon ke phir ye mele
karegi ye umar jab bewafaai
churaa legi nazar saari khudaai
mera dil hi tumhen degaa sahaara
banegaa toofaan mein ye hi kinaara
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
dupatte ki giraha mein baandh leejiye
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega
mera dil hai kabhi kaam aayega

दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा

ये माना तुम हसीं हो नाज़नीं हो
मेरे दिल में तुम्हीं परदानशीं हो
कहाँ ले जाओगी तुम ऐसी सूरत
कभी तो होगी साथी की ज़रूरत
मेरा दिल है इसे साथी बना लो
इसे अपनी निगाहों में छुपा लो
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा

मेरे दिल से ना अब दामन बचाओ
तुम्हें मेरी क़सम है पास आओ
मेरा दिल प्यार में डूबा हुआ है
तुम्हारी याद में खोया हुआ है
मेरा दिल आपसे बढ़ कर हसीं है
हसीनों की तरह क़ातिल नहीं है
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा

जवानी तक हैं ये सारे झमेले
न होंगे आशिक़ों के फिर ये मेले
करेगी ये उम्र जब बेवफाई
चुरा लेगी नज़र सारी खुदाई
मेरा दिल है तुम्हें देगा सहारा
बनेगा ये ही तूफान में किनारा
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
दुपट्टे की गिरह में बांध लीजिये
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा
मेरा दिल है कभी काम आएगा

‘Hariyali aur Rasta’ is an all time favorite movie among our family and i get to watch it many times as i grow. i do not remember to watch ‘Apne hue paraye’, though i have heard this song earlier and now get to listen after many years. from the starcast i could imagine that this film is also on the same line as ‘hariyali aur rasta’. From the film mentioned above another film which i have not watched is ‘aasra’. Like the write up and perfectly summarised the ‘Mala Sinha’ phenomena.
Aur haan, Mukesh ji ke baare mein kya kehna, unka jaadu hai hi aisa …
