Jhoom jhoom ke naache manwa

When Manoj Kumar approached him for lyrics and music for his film on the life of Bhagat Singh, the first thing he did was he traveled to Banga village in Punjab, and personally met with the Bhagat Singh’s moher, Mata Vidyawati ji. He talked with her about the legendary martyr, his childhood, his time in college, and as a freedom fighter. And the time he spent in the prison. From these reminiscences of Mata Vidyawati, the incredible poetry that emerged from the pen of this extraordinary poet became the iconic song of patriotic inspiration – “Tu Na Rona Ke Tu Hai Bhagat Singh Ki Maa. . .”.

Remembering Prem Dhawan on his 90th anniversary of birth (on 13th June).

Prem Dhawan, always the lesser known, the lesser famous, the lesser considered poet of the Hindi film world. But then, as always, we do not know the real worth of the artist till we are made to encounter the immortal creations. Thinking of songs like “Seene Mein Sulagte Hain Armaan” (‘Taraana’, 1951), “Halke Halke Chalo Saanwre, Pyaar Ki Mast Hawaaon Mein” (‘Taangawaali’, 1955), “Rasiyaa Re, Mann Basiyaa Re” (‘Pardesi’, 1957), “Sab Kuchh Lutaa Ke Hosh Mein Aaye To Kyaa Kiyaa” (‘Ek Saal’, 1957), “Tumse Kuchh Kehnaa Hai, Gar Tum Kuchh Kehne Do” and “Dil Ko Laakh Sambhaala Ji, Phir Bhi Dil Matwaala Ji” (‘Guest House’, 1959), “Nain Dwaar Se Mann Mein Wo Aa Ke Tan Mein Aag Lagaaye” (‘Saawan’, 1959), “Chhodo Kal Ki Baaten, Kal Ki Baat Puraani” (‘Hum Hindustani’, 1960), “Agar Dil Kisi Se Lagaaya Na Hota” (‘Badaa Aadmi’, 1961), “Teri Duniya Se Door, Chaley Ho Ke Majboor, Hamen Yaad Rakhnaa”(‘Zabak’, 1961), “Deewaane Tum Dewaane Hum, Kisey Khabar Kyaa Kahe Ye Zamaana” (‘Bezubaan’, 1962), “Khanke To Khanke Kyun Khanke Jaise Raat Ko Chamken Taare” (‘Vallaah Kya Baat Hai’, 1962), and many more, suddenly brings us face to face with this un-measured and unsung talent.

When Raj Kapoor produced ‘Jaagte Raho’ (1956), the songs were all penned by Shailendra. But for the one bhangra song – “Te Ki Main Jhooth Boleyaa. . .”, Raj Kapoor specially called for the services of Prem Dhawan. And in 1970, when he was making ‘Mera Naam Joker’, he once again invited Prem Dhawan to write the Heer rendition in the film – “Sadke Heer Tujhpe Hum Fakeer Sadke”.

Prem Dhawan was born in the city of Ambala, on 13th June, 1923, in a middle class family. He was good at studies throughout, and developed an interest in writing poetry at a very young age. While in the high school and college, he read a lot about the communist and socialist movements in Europe, and was verily influenced by them. After completing his bachelor’s degree course, he moved to Bombay. One of the first things that happened to him in Bombay was that he came in touch with IPTA. With preconditioned socialist leanings, he immediately became a very active member. On one hand, this association was a whetting of his appetite for participating in a socialist movement, and on the other hand, it provided him with the links that eventually brought his artistic talent to the Hindi film world. This involvement also provided him the opportunity to learn other arts too. He learnt classical music from Pt. Ravi Shankar, and classical dance from Uday Shankar.

These learnings stood him in very good stead, as he went on into the film world, not just as a poet, but also as a music director and a dance choreographer. Although the count of his films as a dance director is not too high, he has to his credit the dance direction for films like ‘Do Bigha Zameen’ (1953), ‘Naya Daur’ (1957) and ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’ (1959) and more. You may recall the lovely songs choreographed by him for these films– “Hariyaala Saawan Dhol Bajaata Aaya” (‘Do Bigha Zameen’), “Uden Jab Jab Zulfen Teri” and “Ye Desh Hai Veer Jawaanon Kaa” (‘Naya Daur’), and “Haule Haule Ghoonghat Pat Khole”
and “Akhiyaan Bhool Gayeen Hain Sonaa” (‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’).

After becoming part of IPTA, his first opportunity as a lyricist in Hindi films came when KA Abbas Sb called upon him to write the songs for the film
‘Dharti Ke Laal’ (1946). By the turn of the decade, he had established himself as a poet of repute with films like ‘Ziddi’ (1948), ‘Jeet’ (1949), ‘Aarzoo’ (1950) and ‘Taraana’ (1951). And by the time his writings for Hindi films slowed down around the turn of the century, he had provided songs for almost 200 films.

An interesting episode. Sometime in the 1950s, a delegation of IPTA (Indian People’s Theatre Association) visited the Soviet Union. Prem Dhawan was one of the visiting members. During this visit, he penned a poem that expressed his yearning for his motherland. The words are

chhod kar teri zameen, door aa pahunche hain hum
phir bhi hai itini tamanna, tere zarron ki qasam
hum jahaan paidaa huye , nikle apna wahin pe dum
tujh pe dil qurbaan

These lines came to the attention of Bimal Roy. He was so impressed that he called upon Prem Dhawan to write the songs for his classic film ‘Kabuliwaala’ (1961). And these lines became the immortal patriotic song “Ae Mere Pyaare Watan, Ae Mere Bichhde Chaman”.

Prem Dhawan passed away on 7th May, 2001 in Bombay.

For this post, I present this song from one of his earliest films. The film is ‘Kamal’ from 1949. Produced under the banner of Hind Kamal Chitra, Bombay, the film is directed by Surya Kumar. The list of actors includes Surendra, Nayantara, Jeevan, Madan Puri, Mahendra, Lalita Rao, Munshi Khanjar, Bibi Bai, Yashoda Nandan Joshi, Mohna etc.

The music of this film is created by SD Burman. There are 10 songs in this film, shared amongst GS Nepali, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan and Prem Dhawan. This particular song is from the pen of Prem Dhawan. The singing voice is that of Surendra. Given that Surendra’s name also appears in the star cast, it may be safe to state that this song is also picturized on him.

A wonderful rendition by Surendra. Listen to this lovely song created almost six and a half decades ago, in what was only the third film of Prem Dhawan’s career. Enjoy.

He was great; a unsung hero. He has provided some extraordinary songs for the most extra ordinary films.

Sir, thanks ! thanks ! thanks !
aapke ‘article’ ke baare mein kuchh kehna mere liye chhota munh badi baat hogi, isiliye main kewal dhanywad hi keh sakta hoon, ya kahiye ki ye sab (aapke ‘posts’) hamare liye aashirwad hain.
– the songs listed by you and as rightly mentioned are all ‘immortal creations’, ‘agar dil kisise lagaya na hota, zamaane ne hamko mitaya na hota’ … beautiful song, the cassette lying in my collection for months now has to taken out now … to relive it again…
Yes , a great , a unsung hero he was …
and one more thing ..’ wish that Raj Kapoor saab could have given him more than the just two songs as mentioned by you’
