Shyamlal Babu Rai, who wrote endearing gems in the golden era of melody, such as “Bade Armaanon Se Rakha Hai Balam Teri Kasam”, and also popular hits for the new generation in the 1970s, such as “Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindagi Mein Aaye, To Baat Ban Jaaye”, had started his career back in the 1946 with two completely obscure and now unknown films – ‘Double Face’ and ‘Jungle Ki Pukaar’.  Information about these films is not easily traceable, and neither have the songs of these films have surfaced so far.

Remembering Indeewar, song writer par excellence, on the anniversary of his passing away today (27th Feb).

Yes, his real name was Shyamlal Babu Rai, and Indeewar was his pen name.  He was born in the Dhamna village in Jhansi District (now in Madhya Pradesh) in 1924.  An innate passion for poetry and words, brought him to Bombay in 1945, at the age of 21, to try and set up a career for himself in Hindi films.  The early years were anonymous and struggling years, and he had to wait for almost half a decade and a good fifteen films, before getting his first taste of popular success.  This came in the form of songs of the film ‘Malhaar’ (1951).  The success of the music and songs of this film pushed him into the front line of song writers in the industry.

His work was recognized as successful and popular, in that the songs written by him were nominated five times for the top honors at the Filmfare awards.  Three of these nominations came in consecutive years from 1974 to 1976.  The lady luck smiled at him in 1976, and his creation “Dil Aisa Kisi Ne Mera Toda” from the film ‘Amaanush’ was honored with the award for the Best Song for the year 1976.

Indeewar passed away this day in 1997, after having spent a career spanning five decades in the industry, leaving behind a legacy of over one thousand songs that wrote for about three hundred films.

Today, I present this sound from the early years of his career.  The film is ‘Didi’ from 1948.  The music direction is by Mukund Masurekar, who incidentally is also the director of the film.  The film is produced under the banner of Navbharat Pictures, and the star cast as listed in the Geet Kosh, is Ranjana, Ghanshyam, Shobha Rani, Charu Bala, Pandey, Anand, Amrit, Narsi, and Kukku etc.  All in all, an obscure and unknown film which makes its debut on this blog today.

There are eleven songs in this film, eight of which are from the pen of Indeewar.  The other lyricist sharing the credits for this film is Saraswati Kumar ‘Deepak’.  The name of the music director is also new to the blog.  I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film and its music director.

The singing voice is that of Geeta Rai (later Geeta Dutt), who sings an endearing song, calling out to her beloved.  The time used to be when even married couples had to wait for their chance even to see each other, no matter that they were living under the same roof.  The lady is calling out to her beau, and then she says, wait, let me check whether the mother-in-law is around.  Then she goes on to recommend that they should have their conversation with only the eyes, maybe fearing that the spoken words will carry to other ears also.  Harking back to the years and the times when a different set of morals and rules were followed.  But that discussion another day.  Today, lets listen to this simple worded heartwarming expression.  And enjoy one of the earliest creations of Indeewar.

Lyrics

chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o thehro zaraa
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas

mujhse karna baat balamwaa
aankhon hi aankhon mein
mujhse karna baat
mujhse karna baat balamwaa
aankhon hi aankhon mein
phool si hoon  rakhna mujhko
haathon hi haathon mein
phool si hoon  rakhna mujhko
haathon hi haathon mein
zindagi ke phool mein
jawaani ki hai baat
zindagi ke phool mein
jawaani ki hai baat
zindagi ke phool mein
jawaani ki hai baat
chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o thehro zaraa
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas

duniya ki chalne na dena
gir jaane do bijli
duniya ki chalne na
duniya ki chalne na dena
gir jaane do bijli
bhaonraa tum ban jaao balamwaa
main ban jaaun titli
bhaonraa tum ban jaao balamwaa
main ban jaaun titli
jaayen kisi baagh mein
rachaayen donon raas
jaayen kisi baagh mein
rachaayen donon raas

chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o chupke chupke aana
mere raja mere paas
o thehro zaraa
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas
o thehro zaraa
dekhoon kahin dekhe naa meri saas

चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास

मुझसे करना बात बलमवा
आँखों ही आँखों में
मुझसे करना बात बलमवा
आँखों ही आँखों में
फूल सी हूँ रखना मुझको
हाथों ही हाथों में
फूल सी हूँ रखना मुझको
हाथों ही हाथों में
ज़िंदगी के फूल में
जवानी की है बात
ज़िंदगी के फूल में
जवानी की है बात
ज़िंदगी के फूल में
जवानी की है बात
चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास

दुनिया की चलने ना देना’
गिर जाने दो बिजली
दुनिया की चलने ना देना’
गिर जाने दो बिजली
भौंरा तुम बन जाओ बलमवा
मैं बन जाऊन बिजली
भौंरा तुम बन जाओ बलमवा
मैं बन जाऊन बिजली
जाएँ किसी बाग में
रचाएं दोनों रास\
जाएँ किसी बाग में
रचाएं दोनों रास\
चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ चुपके चुपके आना
मेरे राजा मेरे पास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास
ओ ठहरो ज़रा
देखूँ कहीं देखे ना मेरी सास

Sudhir ji,

Mukund Masurekar was from Goa and he knew many instruments and was an excellent harmonium and Violin player. Just like his childhood friend-Shridhar Parsekar,another very very talented composer from Goa and arranger (he was a popular composer for marathi bhavgeets),Masurekar too got spoiled due to alcohol.
Vijay Anand met him once and offered him a job in Navketan,but never dared to offer him composing. Masurekar started as a Business Manager from film Funtoosh-1956 and continued with the Anands till his unfortunate end.
This information came from a friend of mine from Goa.
-AD

Note- In his film DIDI-48, there is a song by Shankar Dasgupta ” Kisi ka deep jalata hai”. Masurekar had copied the tune of ” Dil jalata hai to jalane de”-Pehli Nazar-45. I had discussed this song on Harvepam’s Blog in 2012 ( In ‘Inspired songs” series).

Dear Arun ji, Nitin ji,

Thanks to both for additional details about Mukund Masurekar.

Yes, it is indeed a sad commentary that so many of the talented artists, across various disciplines, were given over to heavy drinking, that consumed their lives and their careers.
