Kaahe nainon mein naina daale re

Posted on: April 22, 2013


“Jogan”(1950) was a Ranjit Film Company Production. This movie was made at a time why the studio was on the verge of bankruptcy. This movie, based on a seemingly flimsy looking story line rescued the company. Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, has to say about this movie:-

JOGAN(1950) a Ranjit movietone film was a big hit in those days. There was a strange thing about this movie, that in the credit list of the movie they used to show a big Question Mark instead of any name. For many years, this was a mystery and no one knew the answer, till one day, before his death in 1999, Kidar Sharma revealed the story behind the STORY of Jogan, thus-

” The man who wrote the story declined to take the credit, at the last minute. He was the great CHANDULAL SHAH himself.

He saw one English movie, in which the Hero falls in love with a Nun and tries to get her out of celibacy. He wanted to make its Hindi version. He called two of the best directors of that time, viz. Nitin Bose and Mahesh Kaul and told them the ‘one line story’- disturbing the sanyas of a Jogan.

Both of them laughed loudly and said no film can be made on this. That precise time I entered the room and heard this. Bose and Kaul left and the servant brought a Paan for Chandulal.I asked him “Main Beeda uthaun ?” meaning, may I take the challenge ?

Chandulal said,”Remember, my financial condition is so bad that I have only one month’s ration at home. If you fail Ranjit will be destroyed.”

I accepted the challenge. I made this movie in just 29 days, working Day and Night. I wanted to prove to Bose and Kaul that I was not a fool. They had said(after hearing my challenge) that ‘fools rush where Angels fear to tread’

The film was a Hit. ”

The story of Jogan was that Vijay(Dilip Kumar) falls in love with Surabhi(Nargis), a Jogan who sings in a temple every day. When he follws her daily, she tries to dissuade him , but he would not listen to it. She has become a Jogan after her marriage is fixed with an old man and she tries to commit suicide, is saved by Maha Maa(Pratima devi) and made a Jogan. Finally, she disappears and after few years Vijay gets a letter from her that she loved him, but has committed suicide.

This movie had lots and lots of songs in it. Most of these songs were solo songs sung by Geeta Dutt and picturised on Nargis.

Here is a song that for a change was sung by another singer. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. This song is picturised on a lady playing a tawaif and entertaining her clients by singing this mujra. I am unable to identify her. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.
PS-She is Purnima. I thank Prakashchandra and bluefire for the identification.

Butaram Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

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

Song-Kaahe nainon mein naina daale re(Jogan)(1950) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Butaram Sharma, MD-Bulo C Rani

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
ho pardesiya
ho pardesiya
nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein

nazar nazar se mili
aur dil nidhaal hua
qusur kiska
maraa koi
ye kamaal hua
tumhare chaahne waalon ka khoob haal hua
ke jeena ek taraf
marna bhi muhaal hua
ho pardesiya
ho pardesiya
nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein

adaa ke teer ka
hokar shikaar baithe hain
jigar ko thaame huye
beqaraar baithe hain
nigaah e lutf ke ummeedwaar baithe hain
tumhaare saamne beikhthiyaar baithe hain
ho pardesiya
ho pardesiya
nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein

jo dil mein aake base hon
to pyaar bann ke raho
sadaabahaar chaman ki bahaar bann ke raho
hamaare pehlu mein chain o qaraar ban ke raho
nigaahen milne ki
ik yaadgaar bann ke raho
ho pardesiya
ho pardesiya
nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein naina daale re
ho pardesiya
ho pardesiya
nainon mein naina daale re
kaahe nainon mein
