Ye bhool huyi bhoole se kabhi

Posted on: July 13, 2013


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

The ‘harmonium song’ and ‘roadside tamasha song’ are no more featuring in films now. The last song of these genre that I can recall was in the film ‘Aashiqui’ by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal which goes :

tu meri zindagi hai
tu meri har khushi hai
tu hi pyar tu hi chaahat
tu hi aashiqui hai

The song is picturised on the roadside, with the singer on harmonium, accompanied by another person with dholak and a little girl dancing. There are no spectators to give them money so the hero Rahul Roy has to shell out money at he end of the song.

I have a liking for these type of songs. Couple of my favorite’s are huye ham jinke liye barbaad and deewaane hain deewaanon ko na ghar chaahiye.

Commuters in Mumbai local trains are fortunate to get to hear such impromptu performances by beggars although there is no space for them for dancing. But they make up for it by singing on the top of their voices. I am able to recall at least two songs from older days that were regular on the local train circuit. One is a bhajan in Marathi ‘ ughad daar devaa aata ‘ and ‘pardesi pardesi jaana nahin mujhe chhod ke’ from Raja Hindustani.

I think I have found another song, which is definitely a ‘harmonium song’ and probably ‘roadside tamasha song’ too as there is interlude music sounding as such. I was unable to find a video link for this Rafi solo from the film “Fifty Fifty”(1956). The song is written by Rajendra Krishan and composed by Madan Mohan. The song is picturized on M. Rajan, as per the information in the excel sheet. This should be a comedy/drama film seeing the cast of M. Rajan, Nalini Jaywant, Tun Tun, Omprakash, David, Helan and Gope. If M. Rajan is the hero and singing this for the heroine Nalini Jaywant, than she must be watching this performance, as it is directly speaking to the lady. The more I think about it, the more I am able to imagine how this song may be picturized. Not knowing how Mr. M. Rajan looks like is no way hampering it, as such situation songs are fairly common in old hindi films.


Song-Ye bhool huyi bhoole se kabhi (Fifty Fifty)(1956) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

yeh bhool huyi
bhoole se kabhi ee
ham teri tamanna kar baitthe
ham teri tamanna kar baitthe
ham teri tamanna kar baitthe ae ae
pachhtaata hai ab
dil reh reh kar
kya karnaa thha aur kya kar baitthe
kya karnaa thha aur kya kar baitthe
kya karnaa thha aur kya kar baitthe

maaloom na thhaa
le jaaayegi
yeh dil ki lagi iss manzil tak
ham ishq mein itne mehv huye ae ae
kaafir ko bhi sajdaa kar baitthe
kaafir ko bhi sajdaa kar baitthe
kaafir ko bhi sajdaa kar baitthe

kyaa tum ne kahaa
kyaa ham ne sunaa
kyun raaz yeh khultaa ghairon par
khud apni zabaan se
ham apni ee ee
ruswaayi ka charchaa kar baitthe
ruswaayi ka charchaa kar baitthe
ruswaayi ka charchaa kar baitthe
yeh bhool huyi bhoole se kabhi
ham teri tamanna kar baitthe
ham teri tamanna kar baitthe
pachhtaata hai ab dil reh reh kar
kya karnaa thha aur kya kar baitthe
kya karnaa thha aur kya kar baitthe
ae ae

Don’t know how this song is picturized, but there was another beggar song posted here from Miss Mary, “Pehle Paisa, Phir Bhagvan” by Rafi Saab and picturized on Om Prakash

M. Rajan played hero’s roles in very few pictures. In Ramesh Sehgal’s ‘Shola aur Shabnam’ he was the 3rd angle of Love-triangle. One can see him in some songs of this film. Other 2 angles were Dharmendra & Tarla Mehta. Later he had played father’s role in several pictures.
