“Paapi”(1953) was a Ranjit Movietone movie. It had Raj Kapoor (in double role) and Nargis in lead roles. The movie is about mistaken identity of the two Raj Kapoors. THe review is this movie was given by Sudhir ji, while discussing one of the songs of this movie. Here is what he has to say about the movie:

A fairly successful film of its time, it starred Raj Kapoor and Nargis in lead roles. Raj Kapoor plays a double role – one role as a bad character Raju, who decries God and openly speaks against Him, and the other role as Swami ji, a religious teacher. The bad guy is on the run from the law after a robbery when a train accident places him in a situation where people take him to be the religious teacher. Fearing the arms of law, he gladly and silently moves into the role. The rest of the film is a depiction of the internal struggle that occurs within him, and the transformation that takes place. The real teacher returns, and the bad person confesses to his crime and undergoes the punishment of law.

There is a very interesting episode connected with the music of this film and the fortunes of its music director. It is not well known that S Mohinder was the original music director for the iconic musical ‘Anarkali’ (1953). Both the movies were in production simultaneously. S Mohinder recorded two songs for ‘Anarkali’. The producer did not like the music and rejected them. S Mohinder then brought these melodies to the film ‘Paapi’ and it was decided that they will be used in this film. However, the producer of ‘Anarkali’ changed his mind and requested S Mohinder to bring those songs back into his film. S Mohinder was faced with a very difficult dilemma, on which producer to please and whom to displease. ‘Paapi’ seemed, at that time, a better wager, given that it was a Ranjit Movietone film with the lead pair of Raj Kapoor and Nargis, whereas ‘Anarkali’ was led by Pradeep Kumar and Bina Rai, both relatively new comers and of course much less known and popular in comparison. S Mohinder took the decision to stay with Ranjit Movietone and Chandulal Shah, the production house behind ‘Paapi’. One can only speculate what would have been the course of history, had he made a different choice.

Three songs from “Paapi”(1953) have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is picturised on Nargis.

Butaram Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Mohinder.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai
mohabbat ki kuchh aur hi dastaan hai
na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai
mohabbat ki kuchh aur hi dastaan hai
na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai

ye wo hai nahin koi fariyaad jiski ee
ye wo hai nahi koi fariyaad jiski
hamesha rahi duniya barbaad jiski
hamesha rahi duniya barbaad jiski
ye behte hue aansuon ka jahaan hai
ye behte hue aansuon ka jahaan hai
na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai

bahaaren jo aaye to aaye kahaan se
bahaaren jo aaye to aaye kahaan se
ummeedon ke gul muskuraye kahaan se
ummeedon ke gul muskuraye kahaan se
ke iss baag ki baagbaan hi khizaan(?) hai
ke iss baag ki baagbaan hi khizaan(?) hai
na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai

adhoore rahenge
adhoore rahe jo
adhure rahenge
adhoore rahe jo
kabhi zindagi mein na poore hue jo
kabhi zindagi mein na poore hue jo
ye un jhoothe waadon ka jhootha jahaan hai
ye un jhoothe waadon ka jhootha jahaan hai
na pehlu mein dil hai na munh mein jabaan hai
