Divas of Hindi film music (5)
———————————–
Song no. 5 is one more duet, which is too good a song to not be known. This is by Shamshad Begum and Mohammed Rafi. I mean songs like this when writing that there are many better and rarer songs which could have been part of the Rafi series. I missed out on including this one.

The duet is from the film Nisbat (1949), written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by Govind Ram. It is a classic romantic song talking about stars, moon and night on one hand, and clouds , waves and the world asleep with the wakefulness of youth, on the other hand.

I was not able to find any information about this film on the net. Even the excel sheet is silent about on whom the song is picturized. Only myswar.com is having information about 8 songs from the film. It appears to be full of solos of Shamshad Begum. But when I tried to find links of some songs, they were not available. So it appears that the film and the songs are lost, except for this beautiful duet.

I think the duets of these two singers originally from Punjab, Shamshad Begum and Mohammed Rafi, are around 150. If only hindi film songs are to be counted the number should be around 130. So they are a manageable figure, that I can look at and find my personal favourites. So here goes :

Song Movie Year
Solah baras ki bhayi umariya Aag 1948
Bolo ji dil loge to kya kya doge Patanga 1949
Le ke pehla pehla pyaar bhar ke CID 1956
Bheega bheega pyaar ka samaa Sawan 1959

The list is too small, just goes to show that I knew very few duets of these two singers. Still the list seems incomplete to me, because of some songs where a third singer is involved, which are not featuring here.

Just one more duet after this one, and than I can get on with the solos, hopefully for the rest of this series.

Lyrics

taaron ka yeh khazaana
taaron ka yeh khazaana
yeh chaandni suhaani ee
kitna haseen fasaana
kitni haseen kahaani
kitna haseen fasaana
kitni haseen kahaani
soyaa huaa zamaana
jaagi huyi jawaani

ae chaand munh chhupaa le ae ae
ae chaand munh chhupaa le
hai chaand mere ghar mein ea ea
hai chaand mere ghar mein
kyun tujh ko raat laayi hai
wo hai meri nazar mein
kyun tujh ko raat laayi hai
wo hai meri nazar mein
yaa chaand hai deewaana
ya raat hai deewaani ee ee
soyaa huaa zamaana
jaagi huyi jawaani

in mast baadalon ki ee
in mast baadalon ki
maujon mein beh rahi hoon
in mast baadalon ki
maujon mein beh rahi hoon
samjho agar to main ek
afsaana keh rahi hoon
samjho agar to main ek
afsaana keh rahi hoon
kehne ka jab mazaa hai
haan kehne ka jab mazaa hai
sunte hon woh kahaani ee
ee ee
soyaa huaa zamaana
jaagi huyi jawaani

taaron ka yeh khazaana
haan taaron ka yeh khazaana
yeh chaandni suhaani ee
soyaa huaa zamaana
jaagi huyi jawaani
