Raag Maalikaa in Hindi Films – 20
======================

Ram Rajya was a 1943 Bollywood mythological film, directed by Vijay Bhatt. Prem Adib and Shobhna Samarth were the lead roles as Rama And Sita. The supporting cast was Umakant, Badri Prasad, Ameerbai, Yashwant, Pandit, Madhusudan Pandey, Shantakumari, Aathavale, Ranjana etc. The first ever Indian movie that premiered at USA, It became one of the most popular movies of that early era of Hindi Cinema, and was the third highest grossing Indian film of 1943. The film gained significance, as for the title it used the term Ram Rajya (Rule of Rama), which Mahatma Gandhiji often used to define democratic-righteous rule during the Indian independence struggle. Incidently, it was the only film Gandhiji ever saw. Kanu Desai’s art direction was very much appreciated, equally by the Critics and masses.

Manna Dey made his singing debut with three solos for this Hindi film quite by accident. The producer of this film, Vijay Bhatt, and music director, Shankar Rao Vyas had approached Manna Dey’s uncle, K C Dey to sing for this film. K C Dey, who was an acclaimed composer himself, refused saying he would only sing to his own music. The visitors then asked Manna Dey to sing for the film instead. The other singers were Ameerbai Karnataki, Saraswati Rane and Shankar Rao himself. A very beautiful RaagaMaala was created for the film. String of Raagas namely Bahar, Kedar, Yaman Kalyan, Gaud Sarang, Khamaj, Kafi, Bageshri and again Bahar were used for composing this RaagaMaala. The Lyrics for which were written by Ramesh Gupta.

(Please pardon for printing film name as ‘Ramayan’ instead of ‘Ram Rajya’ in the title plate in the video)

Lyrics

(ishwabhukulbhushan gobrahman mahapratipaal ayodhyadhipati shrimam maharaj ramchandra ki jai ho
maharaj ramchandra ki jai ho,
maharaj ramchandra ki jai ho
)

dekho dekho
dekho dekho
ramrajya mein
chahoon dish ajab khushhaali hai
chahoon dish ajab khushhali hai
sukh sampati se hari bari
is bharat ki phulwaari hai
is bharat ki phulwaari hai

kahin yagya havan
kahin ved pathan
gau maata ki rakhwaali hai
gau maata ki rakhwaali hai
hare bhare hain khet
anna jal miley sadaa bhar pet
jhoomti daali daali hai
jhoomti daali daali hai

vaishyon ko vyaapaar
dharm ka braahman par sab bhaar
shoodra ko seva pyaari hai
shoodra ko seva pyaari hai
gau brahman pratipala
kshatra ki dhaal
sukhi sab prajaa hamaari hai
sukhi sab prajaa hamaari hai

bani geet madhur, bani geet madhur
dhwani taal mile
kahin paayal ki jhankar miley
kahin paayal ki jhankar miley

(sargam)
(nrutya bol)

aaaaa
kahin mast basant tarang mein hai
hey ae ae
kahin ee kaam rati ke ae ae sang mein hai

kahin abeer gulaal tarang rachaa
kahin bhar bhar jholi phaag saja
unmaad bhari kahin holi hai
unmaad bhari kahin holi hai

sooraj chanda jagmagte
kahin sooraj chanda jagmagte
kahin deepak taaron se lagte
kahin deepak taaron se lagte
sringaar bhari deepaawali hai
sringaar bhari deepaawali hai

dekho dekho
dekho dekho
ramrajya mein
chahoon dish ajab khushhaali hai
chahoon dish ajab khushhaali hai
sukh sampati se hari bhari
is bhaarat ki phulwaari hai
is bharat ki phulwaari hai
phulwaari hai
phulwaari hai ae
raja ramchandra ki jai
raja ramchandra ki jai
raja ramchandra ki jai
