“Faraar” is a movie title that we come across at ten years gap beginning from 1955 onwards till 1975. We have had “Faraar”(1955), “Faraar”(1965) as well as “Faraar”(1975). All these movies had different star cast and were produced by different production houses. Songs from all these movies figure in the blog.

“Faraar”(1955) also known as “Dev Anand in Goa”(1955). The film was produced by Tara Anand and Pradeep Moitra for Unique Pictures.

Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopadia, had discussed the story of this obscure movie while discussing a song from this movie. Here is what he had to say about the story of “Faraar”(1955).

Gora, Ajay, Anjali and her husband, Bipin are amongst a group of freedom-fighters actively involved in trying to force the British to leave Hindustan. Their plans to carry out bomb explosions are foiled when Bipin betrays them and is even ready to identify them in Court. During the Court hearing, Gora (Dev Anand) shoots and injures him, and he as well as Anjali and Ajay (Shravan Kumar) flee to Portuguese-occupied Goa. Gora, who gets shot, recuperates in the clinic of a rebel doctor (Manmohan Krishna) while the others lie low. He is instructed to masquerade as the husband of Nurse Meenakshi (Poonam) and after his recovery befriends Kitty, a dancer/singer (Geeta Bali). Through her admirer, he acquires property where they propose to manufacture medicines and explosives. But nothing will prepare him and the others for the shocks and treachery that await them. Gora and Kitty fight out all odds and triumph in the end.

Four songs from “Faraar”(1955) have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth and final song from the movie.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt and chorus. The song is picturised on Geeta Bali. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Lyrics of this song contain some Goan words sung by chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers familiar with the language to tell us the words being sung by the chorus.

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

With this song, “Faraar”(1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

t reminds me of Adhikar-54 by Meena Kapoor
ek dharti hai ek hai gagan
ek man mera ek hai lagan
o sajan
The Goan chorus imparts an etheral effect to the song. It may be the last but the best song of the lot.
