The Voice of Mukesh #35
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today I am posting the next song by Mukesh, from the year 1949. The film is ‘Lekh’. Given that this film stars the famous pairing of that era – Motilal and Suraiyyaa, I am guessing that this film must have been one of the successes of its time. Maybe so, but today, the name sounds unfamiliar and obscure.

This song is the fifth song from this film to be showcased here. Just out of curiosity I checked the previous four songs, only to realize that the previous post for this film happened in July 2012. In fact that was the anniversary post for the blog completing its four years run. And amazed as I was, I knew it is not surprising that such long time intervals will pass in between the posting of songs from particular film. With the number of
films and songs that we need to deal with, it is only expected that many films and many songs are waiting in the wings.

The film is from the banner of Liberty Art Productions, Bombay and is directed by G Rakesh. The star cast list includes Suraiyya, Sitara, Motilal, Ishu Jaagirdaar, Cuckoo, Anand Pal, Suraiyya Chaudhry, Sudhir, Gurudasram, Chamam Puri, Ameena Bai, Rekha, Sarita Veer, Kanwal, Vats, Pittoo, Atma Prakash etc. Regarding the music of this film – it has 15 songs in all.
The music composition is by Krishna Dayal, B.Sc. (Back in the forties, some of the film personalities had this yen for noting their qualifications also, along with their name, for listing in the credits). The lyrics for this film are shared amongst three poets, namely Qamar Jalaalabaadi, Raghupat Rai, and Amar N Khanna. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist for this song.

And so, a ghazal from Mukesh. It has been quite a while since we talked about a ghazal by him. A large number of his offerings from 1947 and 1948, have been songs. And today, we bring up this wonderfully simple, short ghazal, colored with flavors of sadness – sadness in love. Short and sweet, as in three simple verses that express the sad outcomes of love. The peace and comfort has deserted this life; alas, is that what love is meant to be. A poem that will resonate with the more pensive moods of heart. Enjoy.


Song-Lut gaya din raat ka aaraam kyun (Lekh)(1949) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Krishna Dayal B Sc

Lyrics

lut gayaa din raat ka aaraam kyun
lut gayaa din raat ka aaraam kyun
ae mohabbat tera ye anjaam kyun
lut gayaa din raat ka aaraam kyun

hum ne maangi thhi mohabbat ki sharaab
hum ne maangi thhi mohabbat ki sharaab
laayi qismet aansu’on ka jaam kyun
lut gayaa din raat ka aaraam kyun

dil samajhta hai ke tu hai bewafaa
dil samajhta hai ke tu hai bewafaa
aa rahaa hai lab pe tera naam kyun
aa rahaa hai lab pe tera naam kyun
lut gayaa din raat ka aaraam kyun

लुट गया दिन रात का आराम क्यूँ
लुट गया दिन रात का आराम क्यूँ
ए मोहब्बत तेरा ये अंजाम क्यूँ
लुट गया दिन रात का आराम क्यूँ

हम ने मांगी थी मोहब्बत की शराब
हम ने मांगी थी मोहब्बत की शराब
लाई क़िस्मत आंसुओं का जाम क्यूँ
लुट गया दिन रात का आराम क्यूँ

दिल समझता है के तू है बेवफा
दिल समझता है के तू है बेवफा
आ रहा है लब पे तेरा नाम क्यूँ
आ रहा है लब पे तेरा नाम क्यूँ
लुट गया दिन रात का आराम क्यूँ
