“Jogan”(1950) was directed by Kidar Sharma for Ranjeet Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, Dilip Kumar, Manju, Pratima Devi, Pesi Patel, Poornima, Baby Tabassum, Anwari, Ramesh Thakur, Darpan, Rajendra Kumar etc in it.

This movie was made at a time why the Ranjit Film Company was on the verge of bankruptcy. This movie, based on a seemingly flimsy looking story line rescued the company. Here is what Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, has to say about this movie:-

JOGAN(1950) a Ranjit movietone film was a big hit in those days. There was a strange thing about this movie, that in the credit list of the movie they used to show a big Question Mark instead of any name. For many years, this was a mystery and no one knew the answer, till one day, before his death in 1999, Kidar Sharma revealed the story behind the STORY of Jogan, thus-

” The man who wrote the story declined to take the credit, at the last minute. He was the great CHANDULAL SHAH himself.
He saw one English movie, in which the Hero falls in love with a Nun and tries to get her out of celibacy. He wanted to make its Hindi version. He called two of the best directors of that time, viz. Nitin Bose and Mahesh Kaul and told them the ‘one line story’- disturbing the sanyas of a Jogan.
Both of them laughed loudly and said no film can be made on this. That precise time I entered the room and heard this. Bose and Kaul left and the servant brought a Paan for Chandulal.I asked him “Main Beeda uthaun ?” meaning, may I take the challenge ?
Chandulal said,”Remember, my financial condition is so bad that I have only one month’s ration at home. If you fail Ranjit will be destroyed.”
I accepted the challenge. I made this movie in just 29 days, working Day and Night. I wanted to prove to Bose and Kaul that I was not a fool. They had said(after hearing my challenge) that ‘fools rush where Angels fear to tread’
The film was a Hit. ”

The story of Jogan was that Vijay(Dilip Kumar) falls in love with Surabhi(Nargis), a Jogan who sings in a temple every day. When he follws her daily, she tries to dissuade him , but he would not listen to it. She has become a Jogan after her marriage is fixed with an old man and she tries to commit suicide, is saved by Maha Maa(Pratima devi) and made a Jogan. Finally, she disappears and after few years Vijay gets a letter from her that she loved him, but has committed suicide.

Fourteen songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifteenth and final song from “Jogan”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song, like many other songs from this movie, is a Meera Bhajan. It is sung by Geeta Dutt and an unknown male voice. Music is composed by Bulo C Rani.

The song is picturised as a background song as Dilip Kumar is seen in the picturisation.

This song is a small song, just over one minute long. I cannot figure out what the lyrics of this song mean. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us what the lyrics of this song mean.

With this song, “Jogan”(1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Lyrics

uthhat toh chale avdhoot
uthh toh chale avdhoot

madhee mai koyee na biraaje
uthhat toh chale avdhoot
uthhat toh chale avdhoot oot
uthhat toh chale avdhoot

panthee thha so panthh sidhaara
panthee thha so panth sidhaara
aasan padee hai bhabhoot
aasan padee hai bhabhoot
sangee sanehee koyee na apna
sangee sanehee koyee na apna
sar par jam ka doot

meera ke prabhu bandhan jhootha aa
meera ke prabhu bandhan jhootha
toota kaancha soot
toota kaancha soot
uthhat toh chale avadhut oot
uthhat toh chale avdhoot

Meaning of the song
Avadhutah- Sanskrit, meaning- an ascetic with no worldly connections
The ascetic is leaving (implied- the world).
Madhee (spot for pyre- where the dead body is cremated, from north Indian dialect).
No body visits the site. On the site, there is ash ( bhasam or bhabhut)

Kaccha soot, weak thread
The rest is simple Hindi.
If there is any other word that needs meaning, please let me know.
