Lata Mangeshkar has rendered songs under the batons of hundreds of Hindi film music directors. But some connoisseurs of Hindi film music are of the view that her combination with Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan produced many of her best songs from Hindi films. I feel that to this list, the name of music director Roshan should be added as Lata-Roshan combination churned out some of their best songs. Take for example, songs in ‘Malhaar’ (1951), ‘Hum Log’ (1951), ‘Raag Rang’ (1952), ‘Naubahaar’ (1952), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Mamta’ (1966) to quote a few films. Some of her songs under the baton of Roshan may not have become as popular as that of her songs with Naushad and Shankar Jaikishan, but there is some uniqueness in her renditions under Roshan just as her renditions under Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan were unique.

Of the Roshan films listed above, I knew ‘Naubahaar’ (1952) mainly because of an iconic bhajan ae ri main to prem deewaani mera dard naa jaane koye sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Of all the filmy bhajans sung by Lata Mangeshkar, this bhajan is on the top of my list with Allah tero naam Ishwar tero naam giving it a tough competition. Yesterday, I watched ‘Naubahaar’ (1952) on YT. My intention in watching the film was just to know the sequencing of the bhajan in the film I mentioned above which is played 5 times in the film. But in the process, I found the film absorbing with good performances by Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant. The bonus in watching this film was that all the songs in the film were pleasing to my ears. I do not know the box office status of this film but I am sure that songs must have been a major contributor if the film was a success in the box office.

NAUBAHAAR (1952) was jointly produced by Ashok Kumar and M S Alhuwalia under the banner of New Premier Pictures and was directed by Anand Kumar. Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant were in the lead roles while Kuldeep Kaur, Randhir, Sunalini Devi, Badri Prasad, Jagdish Sethi, Shivraj, Narbada Shankar and Pesi Patel were in the supporting roles. As per http://www.myswar.com, the film has 1O songs penned by Shailendra (4), Stayendra Athaiya (3) and J Nakshab (2). One song is not credited to any singer and lyricist. I noted that there were only 7 songs in the VCD of the film available on YT. Interestingly, one of the songs not available on VCD ‘phool chun le meri baalam ki jaane kab daal jhuke’ was found to be used in the film ‘Firdaush (1953). Incidentally, both ‘Firdaush’ and ‘Naubahaar’ were produced under the banner of New Premier Pictures.

The song from the film I have chosen to present is ‘unke bulaawe pe dole meraa dil’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar on the lyrics of Shailendra. The song is picturised on Sunalini Devi. Some dialogues intercept the song in the video clip which is incomplete towards the end. Unfortunately, even in audio clip, the dialogues mar the smooth flow of the song making it difficult for me to decipher the lyrics of that part of the song.

I get an impression that this song situation was created to break the monotony of a somewhat longer scene in the film involving Ashok Kumar and his cousin Hari (Randhir) in search of Nalini Jaywant from village to village. Whenever Ashok Kumar hears a song sung by a girl, he thinks that it is Nalini Jaywant. It is the job of Hari to verify his hunch. In the process he gets beaten by the villagers for trespassing. After the end of this song, Hari is once again beaten by the father of Sunalini Devi for trespassing in their premises.

Enjoy this Lata-Roshan song on audio clip. To my mind, this song has a feel of Anil Biswas style of composition.

Song-Unke bulaaye pe doley mera dil (Naubahaar) (1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics(On the basis of Audio Clip)

unke bulaawe pe doley meraa dil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
man mein hai mere sau sau batiyaan
man mein hai mere sau sau batiyaan
chhodoon to mushkil chhudaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil na jaaun to mushkil
unke bulaawe pe doley meraa dil

bachpan jawaani jo milne lage hain
bachpan jawaani jo milne lage hain
mausam binaa phool khilne lage
phool khilne lage hain
chhedi kisi ne mere man ki beenaa
chhedi kisi ne mere man ki beenaa
gaaun to mushkil
na gaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
unke bulaawe pe doley meraa dil

jab se wo nainon mein aaye
mere sapne naye rang laaye
naye rang laaye
jab se wo nainon mein aaye
mere sapne naye rang laaye
naye rang laaye
naazon ke paale hain mere sapne
naazon ke paale hain mere sapne
dekhoon to mushkil
dikhaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
unke bulaawe pe doley meraa dil

(Two lines of lyrics which are submerged in dialogues
are difficult to decipher).

uljhi hai kaanton mein haay chunariyaa
uljhi hai haay raam meri chunariyaa
chhodoon to mushkil chhudaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
un ke bulaawe pe dole mera dil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil
jaaun to mushkil
na jaaun to mushkil

Pesi Patel as the father; mother could be Anwaribai
The song banna avadh ka janakpur ki gori is not credited
It was not amongst the top 10 of 1952 films which were:
Aan, Baiju Bawra, Jaal, Daag, Anhoni, Maa, Sangdil, Nagini, Bewafa, Aandhiya
