When I look back at the predominant themes used in Hindi movies at various periods of time, I find that the stories in the movies tended to reflect the prevailing mood of the population at large. For instance, things were tough for county in the earlier years and the country was dependent on others for everything, including even foodstuff. No wonder that people suffered from low self esteem. Under such circumstances, movies showing the sufferings of lead actors struck a sympathetic chord among general population and would throng to watch such movies. So it is no wonder that movies dealing with sad and tragic stories were made in good numbers.

As India progressed and gradually began to become self reliant, the public mood began to become upbeat. Movies began to reflect that. The lead actors became less melancholic and more assertive. By 1970s, the hero became so assertive that he began to take on dozens of baddies singlehandedly and vanquish them every time. 🙂

1950s was obviously early days yet for the recently freed nation. And so majority of movies made during this decade tended to have more melancohly in them than happiness. And that reflected in the music of these movies as well.

“Udan Khatola” (1955) was directed by S U Sunny. The movie had Dilip Kumar, Nimmi, Surya Kumari, Jeewan, Roopmala, Agha, Nawab, Tuntun etc in it.

The story of the movie deals with a man (Dilip Kumar) whose plane crashes and he finds himself in a place ruled by women. The story then proceeds further with lots of songs and dances and the makers of the movie manage to include elements of melancholy in the movie according to the demands of the time. And inclusion of Nimmi in the lead can only help. 🙂

The movie had lots and lots of songs in it, which was also one of the major requirements of any movie those days.

Ten songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the eleventh song from the movie. It is sung by Lata. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of this song is available. Going by the lyrics of the song, it appears almost certauin that this song was picturised on Nimmi. 🙂 Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Gareebon ko tu ae duniya sata le jitna jee chaahe (Udan Khatola)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

gareebon ko tu ae duniya aa
sata le
jitna jee chaahe
ae ae ae ae
gareebon ko tu ae duniya
sata le jitna jee chaahe
gareebon ko tu ae duniya
sata le jitna jee chaahe

teri hasrat na reh jaaye
teri hasrat na reh jaaye
rula le jitna jee chaahe
gareebon ko tu ae duniya
sata le jitna jee chaahe

mujhe naakaam rehne de
mujhe barbaad rehne de
mujhe barbaad rehne de
magar toote huye dil mein
kisi ki yaad rehne de
kisi ki yaad rehne de
hansi ujdi muhabbat ki
uda le jitna jee chaahe
gareebon ko tu ae duniya
sata le jitna jee chaahe

na ham honge na gham honge
zamaane wo bhi aayenge
zamaane wo bhi aayenge
muhabbat jeet jaayegi
sitamgar haar jaayenge
sitamgar haar jaayenge
sitam ke teer seene per chala le
jitna jee chaahe
teri hasrat na reh jaaye
teri hasrat na reh jaaye
rula le jitna jee chaahe
gareebon ko tu ae duniya
sata le jitna jee chaahe
