Mehnat hamaara jeewan

Posted on: March 19, 2013


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

Navin Nischol, an unlikely hero, who seems to be gone too soon. A gold medalist from the Pune Film and Television Institure, he made his debut with the film ‘Saawan Bhaadon’ in 1970. He rode the popularity wave for less than a decade and soon transitioned over to character roles. He continued to be active both on the big screen and small screen. But seeing him always gave a feeling that he went past his prime too quickly – the best was still out there.

Remembering Navin Nischol on his birth anniversary, which was yesterday (18 march), and his unfortunate and hurried passage from this world, today’s day two years ago at a relatively young age – he was 65.

‘Nadaan’ is a film from 1971 that was Navin Nischol’s second or third film. And he got the opportunity to pair with the stalwart leading lady, Asha Parekh. The film is from the banner of Navratan Films, Bombay, and interestingly, it is directed by Deven Verma. The star cast is impressive and includes Navin Nischol, Asha Parekh, Nirupa Roy, Helen, Jairaj, Karan Dewan, Sulochana Chatterjee, Madan Puri, Sunder, Brahm Bhardwaj, Asit Sen, Rashid Khan, Bela Bose, Praveen Pal, Master Chikoo, AK Hangal, Yash, Ravikant, Kuljeet, Subrato, Nazir Kashmiri, and of course Deven Verma himself.

The story of this film followed a very familiar plot of a new young and handsome estate manager coming to a forest land company in the hilly area. And of course the family that owns this property has a young, beautiful and eligible daughter. For the folks who may have seen many such films, the storyline would already be apparent. There is the usual band of villains who foster corruption in the tree felling business, there are the local woodcutters employed by the company, there is the romance that happens between the new manager and the young cowboy-ish daughter of the owner family, there are the normal misunderstandings and fall outs and threats and kidnapping and rescues, all of which provides the regular masaala for the story to come to a happy ending.

The lyrics for the six songs are written by Hasrat Jaipuri and the music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Three songs from this film are already represented on this blog. This is the fourth offering from this film to be posted here. It is sung by Mukesh. Navin Nischol performs it on screen as he exhorts and encourages the woodcutters to do their jobs with dedication.

Once again, a particularly not so remarkable a song which becomes a pleasure to listen to, just for the voice of Mukesh. Enjoy.

सौ हाथ हों न जब तक
इक हाथ क्या करेगा
सौ हाथ हों न जब तक

गर हम जीएं अकेले
कुछ काम ना बनेगा

मेहनत से जो भी हारा

पत्थर पे गुल खिला दें
कर लें जो हम इरादे
पत्थर पे गुल खिला दें
हिम्मत है दिल में इतनी
आकाश को झुका दें
आकाश को झुका दें
अपने ही बाज़ूओं का
लेते हैं हम साहारा
मेहनत से जगमगा लो तक़दीर की सितारा
मेहनत हमारा जीवन
मेहनत हमारा नारा
मेहनत से जगमगा लो तक़दीर की सितारा

जितनी करोगे मेहनत
हाँ उसका फल मिलेगा
जितनी करोगे मेहनत
हाँ उसका फल मिलेगा
निखरेगा देश अपना
आगे जभी बढ़ेगा
आगे जभी बढ़ेगा
होगा न कोई भूखा
होगा हसीन नज़ारा
मेहनत से जगमगा लो तक़दीर की सितारा
मेहनत हमारा जीवन
मेहनत हमारा नारा
मेहनत से जगमगा लो तक़दीर की सितारा

मेहनत हमारा जीवन
मेहनत हमारा जीवन

Heard after almost three decades!!! Thank you Sudhirji for the post, song and of course, paying tribute to this hero, a gold medalist from FTII. His contribution to Hindi Cinema may be little, but will be remembered by melodious songs like Raat kali ek khwaab mein aayi…, Kaan mein jhumka… Sun sun sun o gulaabi kali…., Tu na mili to hum jogi ban jaayenge…and not to forget Tum jo mil gaye ho….. Just few months back I read this article where Asha Parekh, female lead of “Naadaan”, has mentioned that NN was the last-minute replacement for Parikshit Sahni in this film. Just FYI.

BTW, his first marriage was with Shekhar Kapur’s sister, Neelu.
