Fabulous Foot Tappers – 3

A name that deserves to be known better, and honored better.  The repertoire of his songs makes one wonder – he should be named in the top ranking lyricists.  But that is not the case.  He had an intrinsic verve of the verse, he had a passion for nationalism and he had trained in classical music under the renowned Pt Ravi Shankar – a combination that evoked such inspired poetry

tere daaman se jo aayen
un hawaaon ko salaam
choom loon main us zubaan ko
jis pe aaye tera naam

ae mere pyaare watan
ae mere bichhde chaman
tujh pe dil qurbaan

Remembering Prem Dhawan on the anniversary of his passing away today (7th May).

In the early 1940s, he was a young man just stepping into his twenties.  But he was already known as a poet fired with spirit of freedom struggle, himself an active member of the Communist Party, an active member of IPTA who worked with Pt Ravi Shankar and Sachin Shankar to create folk theatre in Punjabi.  And then in 1946, one sees his name appear as one of the lyricist in the film ‘Dharti Ke Lal’ produced by IPTA.

He was active with the film industry for almost four decades, till the early 1980s, contributing his poetry for close to 175 films.

‘Passing Show’ is a film from 1956 about which not much information is available outside of the Geet Kosh.  Production banner is Mukul Pictures, director is Bhagwan, and only four names are listed in the cast of actors – Chandrashekhar, Shakila, Poornima, Daljeet. Six songs in all, from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is by Manohar.  I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help clarify the identity of the music director – could he possibly be Manohar Khanna, or Manohar Lal Sonik.  Or is it a different person.

The singing voice is of Geeta Dutt – a voice befitting the song and its rhythm.  Listen to another zesty and fast paced number.  The suggestion for this song and its lyrics were sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

Song – Bachna Zaraa Teer Chale Kisi Tirchhi Kamaan Se (Passing Show) (1956) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Manohar

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

bachnaa zaraa teer chale
ho teer chale
kisi tirchhi kamaan se
samjho sanam ye ishaare hain
mere pyaare hain
kahin janaa na jaan se
bachnaa zaraa teer chale
ho teer chale
kisi tirchhi kamaan se

haa hhaaa
ho..hhooo
haa hhaaa
ho..hhooo

chhipi chhipi hai
chhipi chhipi hai koi baat
zara jaan le
dabi dabi hai
dabi dabi hai koi ghaat
pehchaan le
chhipi chhipi hai
chhipi chhipi hai koi baat
zara jaan le
dabi dabi hai
dabi dabi hai koi ghaat
pehchaan le
yahaan rakhnaa kadam zara dhyaan se
bachnaa zaraa teer chale
ho teer chale
kisi tirchhi kamaan se
samjho sanam ye ishaare hain
mere pyaare hain
kahin janaa na jaan se

haa hhaaa
ho..hhooo
haa hhaaa
ho..hhooo

door door se
door door se dekho na
nahin gair hum
maange baar baar
maange baar baar
dildaar
teri khair hum
door door se
door door se dekho na
nahin gair hum
maange baar baar
maange baar baar
dildaar
teri khair hum
tum pyaare ho hamen dil o jaan se
bachnaa zaraa teer chale
ho teer chale
kisi tirchhi kamaan se
samjho sanam ye ishaare hain
mere pyaare hain
kahin janaa na jaan se

aaj badli hui hai fizaa. . .
aaj palti hui hai nigaah
aaj badli hui hai fizaa. . .
aaj palti hui hai nigaah
rang mehfil ka kuchh aur hai
to hai jalwe pareshaan se
hey bachnaa zaraa teer chale
ho teer chale
kisi tirchhi kamaan se
samjho sanam ye ishaare hain
mere pyaare hain
kahin janaa na jaan se
bachnaa zaraa teer chale. . .

बचना ज़रा तीर चले
हो तीर चले
किसी तिरछी कमान से
समझो सनम ये इशारे हैं
मेरे प्यारे हैं
कहीं जाना ना जान से
बचना ज़रा तीर चले
हो तीर चले
किसी तिरछी कमान से

हा हा
हो हो
हा हा
हो हो

छिपी छिपी है
छिपी छिपी है कोई बात
ज़रा जान ले
दबी दबी है
दबी दबी है कोई घात
पहचान ले
छिपी छिपी है
छिपी छिपी है कोई बात
ज़रा जान ले
दबी दबी है
दबी दबी है कोई घात
पहचान ले
यहाँ रखना कदम ज़रा ध्यान से
बचना ज़रा तीर चले
हो तीर चले
किसी तिरछी कमान से
समझो सनम ये इशारे हैं
मेरे प्यारे हैं
कहीं जाना ना जान से

हा हा
हो हो
हा हा
हो हो

दूर दूर से
दूर दूर से देखो ना
नहीं ग़ैर हम
मांगें बार बार
मांगें बार बार
दिलदार
तेरी ख़ैर हम
दूर दूर से
दूर दूर से देखो ना
नहीं ग़ैर हम
मांगें बार बार
मांगें बार बार
दिलदार
तेरी ख़ैर हम
तुम प्यारे हो हमें दिल ओ जां से
बचना ज़रा तीर चले
हो तीर चले
किसी तिरछी कमान से
समझो सनम ये इशारे हैं
मेरे प्यारे हैं
कहीं जाना ना जान से

आज बदली हुई है फिज़ा॰ ॰ ॰
आज पलटी हुई है निगाह
आज बदली हुई है फिज़ा
आज पलटी हुई है निगाह
रंग महफिल का कुछ और है
तो हैं जल्वे परेशान से
हे बचना ज़रा तीर चले
हो तीर चले
किसी तिरछी कमान से
समझो सनम ये इशारे हैं
मेरे प्यारे हैं
कहीं जाना ना जान से
बचना ज़रा तीर चले

Dear Sudhir ji,
Thanks a lot for showcasing an absolute gem.
No memory of this obscure song but what a rollicking number in typical
Geeta Dutt mould.
Warm regards,
A. B. Lal
