Kaali kamli waale tum pe laakhon salaam

Posted on: June 21, 2013


I am aware of a movie called “Hatimtai” (1955). It appears that the same movie was also called “Hatimtai Ki Beti” (1955). The movie was produced and directed by Nanubhai Vakil. The movie had Mahipal, Chitra, Daljeet, Krishn Kumari, Kumkum, Naaz, Maruti, Hiralal, Helen etc in it.

Here is a song from the movie. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by A R Qureshi.

The song is lip synced by Mahipal and a lady that appears like Kumkum to me though I am not sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by nahm.

Nice song Atul! Thanks for the lyrics nahm!
What or who is the kaali kamli waale? This word also appears in Gulzar’s phir se aaiyo badraa bidesi.

harvey ji,
As far as I think, ‘kali kamli wale’ is a reference to God.
Surprisingly,even lord Shri krishna is called Kali kamli wala,meaning one who wears a black ‘Kambal’ or blanket ( Krishna is supposed to be a Gope looking after cattle)

Thank you, Arunji!
So the kambhal! Interesting!
I read nahm’s answer first and then yours!
Interesting isn’t it, how both Islam and Hinduism use the same words for God! How integrative!
Love this tradition!
Very comfortive to see that people come together by using same expressions!
May human beings of this world always find such bridges to each other!

‘ Kaali kamli waale ‘ refers to the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh). It is said that used to favour a black shawl, which is kaali kamli . This is a ‘naat’ in the praise of the prophet. The poems in praise of God are called ‘hamd’ .

Qawwali’s which priase the Lord and the prophets are called ‘naatiya qawwali’s’. A ‘hamd’ is only recited in ‘tarz’ without music. So all such qawwali’s with religious fervour are called ‘naatiya qawwali’ .

Atul ji,
HATIM TAI KI BETI-1955 was a costume drama set in the Arabian style mode.Produced by nanubhai Vakil thru his Vakil productions,it was directed by nanubhai himself.The MD was A R Qureshi (Alla Rakha Qureshi,the famous Tabla player and father of Zakir Hussain,tabla mestro). His asst was Diwakar Sharma. The lyrics were by Shevan Rizvi( 8 songs) and Kaifi Azmi (2 songs).
It is imagined ( it is declared just before the credits) that Hatimtai had 2 daughters.The elder is Jahanara,the queen of Shahbad and the younger is Roshanara,who is known for feeding the poor and the needy always. The Shaitan(Devil ) and his assistant Badi can not tolerate Roshan’s goodness. They come and poison the food she distributes. All,including the queen,become sick.However due to her goodness Imaan and Neki come and all recover. Then the Devil’s team poisons Jahanara’s mind and she imprisons Roshanara.
meanwhile the neighbouring kinf of Turin proposes marriage of his elder son Salim with Roshan,but Jahanara wants to marry him. Same time Salim’s younger brother Aslam also wants to marry Roshan,so Salim withdraws and Aslam is married to Jahanara( as roshan). On the wedding night truth is revealed. Aslam is imprisoned but rescued by his friends.
Now salim comes and is imprisoned by jahanara. Aslam comes with army and rescues Salim and imprisons Jahanara. Roshanara comes and begs for pardon to repentant jahanara.
King and queen of Turin arrive for the marriage,but Shaitan and Badi become snakes and bite salim and others. Roshan Ara prays to God and due to her good work,Imaan and Neki arrive and revive everyone.
Finally Aslam and Jahanara and Salim and Roshanara get married.
