“Duniya” (1949) was produced by Fazli brothers and directed by S F Hussain. The movie had Karan Dewan, Suraiya, Yakub, Anwari, Bhudo Advani, Shakila, Zubeida, Jankidas etc in it.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. It is sung by Suraiyya. There were four lyricists in this movie, viz. Aarzoo Lakhnavi, S.H. Bihari, Asad Bhopali and Saraswati Kumar Deepak but the lyricist of this song is not known. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the lyricist of this song.

C Ramchandra is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available, but it is clear that the song was picturised on Suraiyya herself.

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

Song-Armaan lute dil toot gaya (Duniya)(1949) Singer-Suraiyya, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

armaan lute dil toot gaya
armaan lute dil toot gaya
dukh dard ke saathi chhoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya
ae maut sahaara de aakar
ab saare sahare chhut gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

o o
afsos ke mere dil ki kali
o o
afsos ke mere dil ki kali
khilne hi se pehle sookh gayi
kuchh tej hawa ke jhonke se
jo saari bahaaren loot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

jab dil ne kisi ko pyaar kiya
duniya ne kuchh aisa waar kiya
aa aa
jab dil ne kisi ko pyaar kiya
duniya ne kuchh aisa waar kiya
mujh jaise bahut se aayine
kuchh tod diye kuchh toot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

o o
jeene ki zara bhi aas nahin
o o
jeene ki zara bhi aas nahin
ab kuchh bhi hamaare paas nahin
jo dil se lagaa kar rakhe thhe
wo chhaale bhi ab phoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya
armaan lute dil toot gaya
dukh dard ke saathi chhoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

Annasaheb, the master composer… listen to the accompanying violines and admire the connecting interludes…Suraiyya’s voice like honey..tuned in melody…


Simply great music by C.Ramchandra ji … !!!


I always maintai that Anna’s orchaestration is difficult to imitate…every stanza begins with new tune and style, and find amazing that instruments play intriguing interludes…well-knit ups and downs, with perfection …thosewho rehearse his compositions on synth or harmonium or mandolin will agree with me. Salute to those who assisted him , wrote down the swaralipi… Anna, his close admirers revealed that Anna suffered a great setback when he lost his own private diary ( late 60;s)that contained several hundred tunes. His contemporary artists respected him ( Anna) over his unparalled expertise in writing swaralipi. Anna could not recover after Latadidi split added with the loss of the diary. Once an HMV boss GN Joshi in his book (Swaragangechya kathi -please correct me).. . laments over the loss of Anna’s sad musical demise. His admirers know well that Chic Chocolate, Datta Davjekar ( the respected music director in Maharashtrian households), Nissar, Inoc Daniel, Manohar ( Mandolinist ? – ) ,Gomes…were some of his virtuous close associates. Anna was over-generous in letting Chic Chocolate use his brandname in some movies ( Nadaan…)… Music lovers may correct my information….
