“Har Har Mahadev” (1950) was one of most popular movies of its genre, viz religious/ mythological genre of movies. This remains arguably the most well known movie of Trilok Kapoor.

Here is what our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, Mr arunkumar Deshmukh has to say about this movie:

I had seen this film,not once but many times. It was full of trick scenes and It had become a cult film. Trilok Kapoor,who acted the part of lord Shiva was rumoured to have a real snake around his neck during the film shooting. Nirupa Roy who played the role of Uma, was quite scared of snakes and it became a problem. Finally,an artificial snake was used,when their joint shots were shot.

HAR HAR MAHADEV-1950 was produced and directed by Jayant Desai under the banner of Jayant Desai Production. With this one film alone Jayant Desai became a millionnaire in those days.

It was also the FIRST film where the pair of Trilok Kapoor and Nirupa Roy became a hit as Shankar-Parvati and they played this role in 6 subsequent films.

The film had songs written by Ramesh Shastri-who had written the famous song of BARSAT-Mera lal dupatta malmal ka.
His song in this film ‘Kankar kankar se main puchhun shankar mera kahan hai’ became a hit.It was sung by Geeta Dutt.

This is a story,when Tarakasur, the king of demons invades the land of gods,to avenge the insult meted out to his mother by Indra. Tarakasur wins the war and all Gods are kept in captivity-including the offender Indra.

Lord Vishnu and Bramhadev know,only Lord Shiva can defeat Tarakasur but he is in Tapascharya(Meditation). Kamdev is sent to lure Shiva from his meditation, but Shiva is so angry that, opening his Third Eye, he burns Kamdev. Now only Uma,the daughter of king Himalaya can save the world, Uma(Nirupa Roy) start penance to propituate Shiva(Trilok Kapoor).

Due to her earnest bhakti and devotion, Shiva relents and breaks his Meditation. Shiva and Uma get Married and later lord Sshiva destroys Tarakasur,releasing all the Gods.

On this auspicious day of Mahashivratri,the marriage of Shiv-Parvati is solemnised in the midnight.
The film Munimji has a very nice song depicting the marriage details.

Four songs from “Har Har Mahadev” (1950) have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from the movie.

The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Ramesh Shashtri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

We are familiar with “baadal” (clouds) being described as messengers, but in this song “bhanwra” (bumble bee) is described as a bhanwra. I wonder if “Bhanwra” indeed get mentioned as a messenger in Indian mythology or it was an original idea of the lyricist in this case.

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

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

gunn gunn gunn
gunn gunn gunn
gunjan karta bhanwra
tum kaun sandesha laaye
gunn gunn gunn
gunn gunn gunn
gunjan karta bhanwra
tum kaun sandesha laaye
prem mantra chupke se kehdo
jo bhi tum kehlaaye
tum kaun sandesha laaye

in nainon mein chain nahin hai ae ae ae ae
in nainon mein chain nahin hai
Prabhu ke bin koi bain nahin hai
haar unhin ke liye
goonthne phoolan gher bichhaye
tum kaun sandesha laaye
gunn gunn gunn
gunn gunn gunn
gunjan karta bhanwra
tum kaun sandesha laaye

mera man doley re doley
o mera man doley re doley
wo kya boley re boley
mera man doley re doley
wo kya boley re boley
main unke man bhaai hu
main unke man bhaai hu
kya yahi geet tu gaaye
tum kaun sandesha laaye
gunn gunn gunn
gunn gunn gunn
gunjan karta bhanwra
tum kaun sandesha laaye
tum kaun sandesha laaye
tum kaun sandesha laaye
