(1970s Unreleased – Solo)

Ah yes, I am sure you would have guessed it already. When I wrote yesterday that the series is not yet complete, and given that all years in the decade are covered, then what is left are the unreleased songs from this decade. Films that got planned, music and songs got arranged and recorded, but the films either did not get made, were abandoned, or were not released, for various reasons. And as experience has told us time and again, such unreleased songs are a fabulous treasure by themselves. They form a very interesting category, in that the songs have been created, recorded and also released, sometimes formally and sometimes informally. They are away from the mainstream attention, since the films never came to the theatres, and their familiarity in the minds of general public is low. Most of these unreleased songs were first heard on radio, occasionally. They have remained in memory, albeit without any memory of information about them. Sometimes, they are also mislabeled in the mind’s catalog as non-film songs. Simply because they are not associated with any familiar or even obscure film names.

And so, the last two offerings of this series are two very fabulous songs from unreleased films from the decade of 1970. As I am sifting through the list of unreleased films in Geet Kosh, and in the song folders of unreleased films in my collection, I find such a huge treasures of absolute gems of top quality that have been recorded, but never came into the mainstream broadcast or record sales. Blissfully, they are available. Once again, I am spoilt for choices, even with the comparatively smaller sample size in this category, and finding it difficult to choose one. But I have to. And for the solo, I have chosen this wonderful poetical gem from the unreleased film ‘Insaan Aur Insaan’.

Once again, sheer poetry. Verses and words flow so attractively. Words are enchanting. Just as the music is captivating. An ode to the beauty of the beloved, expressed so exquisitely, rendered in such a relaxed manner. Minimum amount of music, a soft an slow pace and rhythm. And the voice of Rafi Sb, so much at home in this milieu.

Lyrics are from the pen of Taajdar Taj, and the music is by Ratandeep-Hemraj. The four or five songs of this film that are available, are set of wondrous gems. One song is already posted here – “Latt Uljhi Hai Suljha De Morey Baalma” (https://atulsongaday.me/2013/07/20/latt-uljhi-hai-suljha-de-mere-baalma/), one of very last songs recorded by Geeta Dutt. That makes this film possibly from early 1970s.

And the voice is that of Rafi Sb. Nothing more to add.

Just listen and enjoy.

Song-Ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa(Insaan aur Insaan)(1970)(UR) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Tajdar Taj, MD-Ratandeep Hemraj

Lyrics

ae mussavir. . .
ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa
ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa
tujh se ban jaaye ae ae ae
tujh se ban jaaye to
bigdi hui taqdeer banaa
ae mussavir. . .

zulf aisi ho ke
barsaat bhi paani maange
zulf aisi ho ke
barsaat bhi paani maange
surkh honthon se. . .
surkh honthon se
har ik phool jawaani maange
o o o o o
dil jinhe choom ke
dil jinhe choom ke
zakhmon ki nishaani maange
nargisi aankhon mein
kaajal ke wohi teer banaa aa
ae mussavir. . .
ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa

main tujhe husn ke andaaz dikhaaun kaise
main tujhe husn ke andaaz dikhaaun kaise
apni aankhen tere
apni aankhen tere chehre pe lagaaun kaise
o o o o o o o
tera dar chhod ke ae ae
tera dar chhod ke
ab jaaun to jaaun kaise
jis mein uljha rahoon din raat
wo zanzeer banaa aa
ae mussavir. . .
ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa

aaj ye aakhri hasrat bhi nikal jaane de
aaj ye aakhri hasrat bhi nikal jaane de
us ke jalwon ki
us ke jalwon ki jawaan aag mein jal jaane de
o o o o o o o
ya mujhe maut ke ae ae
ya mujhe maut ke kadmon pe machal jaane de
varnaa jeene ke liye ab koi tadbeer banaa
ae mussavir. . .
ae mussavir mere mehboob ki tasveer banaa
tujh se ban jaaye ae ae
tujhse ban jaaye to
bigdi hui taqdeer banaa
ae mussavir. . .

ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰
ए मुस्सविर मेरे महबूब की तस्वीर बना
ए मुस्सविर मेरे महबूब की तस्वीर बना
तुझ से बन जाये॰ ॰ए॰ ॰ए
तुझ से बन जाये तो
बिगड़ी हुई तक़दीर बना
ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰

जुल्फ ऐसी हो के बरसात भी पानी मांगे
जुल्फ ऐसी हो के बरसात भी पानी मांगे
सुर्ख होठों से ॰ ॰ए
सुर्ख होठों से
हर इक फूल जवानी मांगे
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओsssss ओssss
दिल जिन्हें चूम के
दिल जिन्हें चूम के
ज़ख़्मों की निशानी मांगे
नरगिसी आँखों में
काजल के वही तीर बना
ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰
ए मुस्सविर मेरे महबूब की तस्वीर बना
मैं तुझे हुस्न के अंदाज़ दिखाऊँ कैसे
मैं तुझे हुस्न के अंदाज़ दिखाऊँ कैसे
अपनी आँखें तेरे ॰ ॰ए
अपनी आँखें तेरे चेहरे पे लगाऊँ कैसे’
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओsssss ओssss
तेरा दर छोड़ के ॰ ॰ए
तेरा दर छोड़ के
अब जाऊँ तो जाऊँ कैसे
जिसमें उलझा रहूँ दिन रात
वो ज़ंज़ीर बना
ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰
ए मुस्सविर मेरे महबूब की तस्वीर बना

आज ये आख्ररी हसरत भी निकल जाने दे
आज ये आख्ररी हसरत भी निकल जाने दे
उसके जल्वों की
उसके जल्वों की जवान आगे में जल जाने दे
ओ ओ ओ ओ ओsssss ओssss
या मुझे मौत के ॰ ॰ए
या मुझे मौत के कदमों पे मचल जाने दे
वरना जीने के लिए अब कोई तदबीर बना
ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰
ए मुस्सविर मेरे महबूब की तस्वीर बना
तुझ से बन जाये॰ ॰ए॰ ॰ए
तुझ से बन जाये तो
बिगड़ी हुई तक़दीर बना

ए मुस्सविर ॰ ॰ ॰

Simply fabulous. Leaves a speechless silence behind it. Do tell if any one else can sing this, like this. And Rafi Sahab is not even trying to keep control over the song. Effort less rendition.

Sudhirji,
kya lafz! kya mausiqi!! kya awaaz!!! Musawwir ki tasweer to dekh na paaye per ha gaane ka lutf khub uthaaya.
Kya kare jab kuchh bahut achha lagta hai to alfaaz urdu zaban me phut padte hai. English falls short; sounds flat.
Tajdar Taj wrote for Anokha Insaan-86, Bahar Aane Tak-90, Jungle King-70, Pyasi Nadi-73, Rakh Aur Chingari-82, Rut Rangeeli aayi-72, Rut Rangeeli Aayi-72, Raeeszada-76, Shaitan Mujrim-80, Shahzadi Mumtaz-67,
Ratnadeep-Hemraj surprisingly offered music for only other Shaitan Mujrim-80,
