Today is the 31st of July(2014).

For many Hindi film music lovers, this date makes an immediate connect in their brain. To one of the most beloved persons to have ever been part of the Hindi film industry.

Yes, I am talking about Mohammad Rafi (or Rafisaab, as he is often respectfully referred to).

Today is the death anniversary of Rafisaab.

34 years ago, in 1980, a day that I remember vividly as if it were yesterday, Rafisaab left our midst.

Only in a physical sense, of course. In every other sense, he is still very much here with his fans, connecting with them through his voice.

And there are legions of his fans. All over the world.

Like me. One of the many millions.

I’ve written about Rafisaab many times on this blog. About how I grew up in a Kishore Kumar era and how I first realized the quality of Rafisaab’s voice. From the time realization hit me, there was no going back. I was hooked for life.

I do not want to repeat all of it again. So I’ll keep it brief.

Like most children growing up in the early 70s, I was a huge Kishore Kumar fan in my childhood. He ruled at that time – and was constantly on radio with one hit or the other. For a child growing up, it was therefore only natural that he would live and breathe Kishore, as I did.

Then one day, I happened to hear a certain voice on radio. The song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

And suddenly something happened within me. As it started with “bhagwaan…bhagwaan” , it took complete control of me. As it went on, I was transfixed. By the voice, the variations, the depth of emotion.

From that moment onwards, I became a Rafisaab fan for life.

(For the record, I am still a huge Kishore fan. And a Talat fan. And a Hemantda fan. And a Manna Dey fan. And I love many Mukesh numbers. I have never believed in the narrow thinking that if you are a Rafisaab fan, you cannot appreciate Kishore. Or the other way round. Fortunately the world of music is far more embracing and open-minded).

Back to Rafisaab. After that realization, I wanted to hear that song again. But those were pre-internet days and, where I lived, we had limited access to cassettes. Radio was my source of music, other than watching films of course.

But even if I didn’t get to hear this particular song that often, I got to hear more of Rafisaab. I heard “suhani raat dhal chuki”, “maine rakha hai mohabbat”, “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, “caravan guzar gaya”, “sau baar janam lenge”, “madhuban mein Radhika”, “hum bekhudi mein” and many more songs on radio. And everytime, I fell in love with the voice and the song.

There were the duets too. “Jeevan mein piya tera saath rahe”, “laagi chhoote na”, “tujhe jeevan ki dor se baandh liya hai”, “tum hi tum ho mere jeevan mein” and many more.

The more I listened to Rafisaab’s voice, the more I fell in love with it.

Come to think of it, we have been gifted to have such variety of voices available to us.

From Kishore’s baritone voice to Mukesh’s soulful voice to Talat’s silken voice, each one has its place in the pantheon of Hindi film music.

Looking for an appropriate adjective for Rafisaab’s voice, I can only think of “divine”. Yes, on one level, it is not very descriptive – but in another sense, it covers it all.

There is a lot of information about Rafisaab available online. I will therefore steer clear of repeating what’s already there. I will just mention one thing – Rafisaab is supposed to have been a very good human being too. And in my book, that places him on a very special level. It is one thing to be exceptionally good in your profession. It is another to be an exceptionally good human being. There are very few who can claim to be exceptional in both of these.

So, on this death anniversary, we remember not just an exceptional singer but an exceptional human being. Rafisaab will always be in our hearts for as long as we live.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song from the film Bewaqoof (1960). I remember seeing this film a few years ago – but except for a very long aeroplane sequence in the end featuring IS Johar, I don’t remember very much about it. I think it is full of antics of Kishore Kumar and IS Johar.

The song is “hum to hain tum par dil se fida”. Written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed by SD Burman. It is picturised on IS Johar and an actress I am not able to identify. I am sure one of our knowledgeable readers will be able to enlighten us about her identity.

It is a light song, sung by Rafi saab in a “controlled” voice. I find it is a pleasant song to listen to. Hope you like it too.


Song-Ham to hain tum per dil se fida(Bewaqoof)(1960) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

Hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

khaadim hum ulfat ke hain
aap ke hain deewaane
phir hum se
kaho kis liye
jhuki aankh lage sharmaane
khaadim hum ulfat ke hain
aap ke hain deewaane
phir hum se
kaho kis liye
jhuki aankh lage sharmaane
aaha thhodi
to keeje
khayaal hamaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

jis din se
toone dil mera
loot liya hanste mein
usi din se
tera dilwaala
gaya baithh tere raste mein
jis din se
toone dil mera
loot liya hanste mein
usi din se
tera dilwaala
gaya baithh tere raste mein
zara mudke
to dekho
kisi ne pukaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

sach maano
ye galat nahin
hum hain tumhaare bas mein
arrey jitni
hain adaayen teri
kha sakta hoon utni kasmen
sach maano
ye galat nahin
hum hain tumhaare bas mein
arrey jitni
hain adaayen teri
kha sakta hoon utni kasmen
aji vallah
nahin hai
jawaab hamaara
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda
hum to hain tum par dil se fida
yaar le lo chaahe kasam-e-khuda

The female actress must be SABITA CHATTERJEE.Someone has to confirm this. She was with Johnnywalkar in 12o`clock(1958)(GuruDutt and Waheeda rehman starrer)
video link to 12`o clock(1958)song:

Prakash ji,

I would beg to differ. This actress is Krishna Kumari (also seen in Khuda Ka Banda).

I checked with photographs of both. Sabita Chatterji has a more oval shaped face. This person is Krishna Kumari.

Sudhir ji

KRISHNA KUMARI(the main mujra dancer who lip syncs for the song)features in this Bewaqoof movie song video:

(again a different krishna kumari is there as a famous heroine down South Indian film industry, This is not the south Indian Heroine Krishna Kumari, but a NORTH INDIAN KRISHNA KUMARI
🙂

The confusion may have been created by IMDB.COM, which has given Marina`s (screen name)name to Krishna Kumari & Meher(screen name)to Sabita Chatterjee, which is wrong.

As per the story plot given in Imdb.site
Bipin Gupta(rai bahadur) has got an affair with Meher(that is Krishna Kumari,But imdb mentions wrongly Sabita Chatterjee`s name as Meher, but Sabita Chatterjee`s name in the movie is MARINA)
Sabita Chatterjee is paired with I.s.Johar and features in the “Hum toh hai tum par dil se fida”
My gut feeling says it is SABITA CHATTERJEE,Please carefully watch 12`o clock song, the link of which has been given above by me.
Please confirm the correctness of this fact.

Regards
Prakash

Sudhir ji

compare the krishna kumari between above linked mujra song of bewaqoof & below given khuda ka banda Krishna Kumari video link, you can see the similarities

I S Johar is paired with Sabita Chatterjee in the movie, also seen in the song above and other songs. So, Prakashji is correct.

Krishna Kumari plays the role of the mother to Pran in this movie and so is older by the time, the “Kids” – kishore, Pran, Johar are grown up.

Sudhir ji
🙂 🙂

Now this is too much, But I have to prove my point
Pleae compare the eyes of KRISHNA KUMARI and SABITA CHATTERJEE
Sabita chatterjee got a different type of (chinky shape)eye shape and far more thinner than krishna kumari.

Krishna kumari toh Sabita Chatterjee(->trim lagthi hai) se zyaada “aged” and “fat” lagthi hai Am I right ??

“Gusthaakhi ke liye maaf karo” Sudhir ji

Regards & LOVE

I heard at that time that Pran would not allow songs picturised on him, as not in keeping with his persona as a villain….and that he appears in a song for the first time in this movie. Is this true? One of the many extremely knowledgeable writers here might throw some light?
