Roshanlal Nagrath, known to us as simply Roshan became such a well known figure in HFM that the name Roshan become a brand name for his descendents who adopted the name Roshan as their surname.

But Roshan’s beginning were neither auspicious nor successful. His initial movie as a music director was “Neki Aur Badi”(1949) which had failed and a despondent Roshan had considered it as the end of the road for him in his career and in his life. He was consoled and encouraged by Kidar Sharma who gave him further breaks as music directors.

There are a few songs composed by Roshan during his early days that failed to click and Roshan reused the same song in his subsequent movies hoping that the song would meet with better success that way, but that did not work out that way.

“Naubahaar”(1952) was a movie that is today regarded as one of the earlier musical hits of Roshan. Roshan may not have thought so while composing the songs of this movie. He composed a song in “Naubahaar”(1952) that he reused in “Firdaus”(1953) as well.

This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan.

“Naubahaar”(1952) was directed by Pt Anand Kumar and it had Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaiwant, Kuldip Kaur, Sunalini Devi, Jagdish Sethi, Indu Shivraj etc in it. This movie had eleven songs in it.

“Firdaus”(1953) was directed by H Ahluwalia and V Joglekar. The movie had Anoop Kumar, Geeta Bali, Om Prakesh, Lalita Pawar, Rama etc in it. This movie had 8 songs in it. Robin Bannerji had composed music for seven songs. One song was composed by Roshan and it was the same song which was also used in Naubahaar and which is the song under discussion.

It appears that Roshan may have been the original choice as the music director for “Firdaus”(1953) and he was subsequently removed and replaced by Robin Bannerji and then he reused the one song of “Firdaus”(1953) composed by him in “Naubahaar”(1952). I am assuming that “Firdaus” (1953) may have been started earlier than “Naubahar”(1952) even if “Naubahar”(1952) was released earlier.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the curious case of this song which was used in two different movies.

Only the audio of this song is available so I have no idea how and on whom this song was picturised in the two movies.


Song-Phool chun le mere baalam (Firdaus)(1953)/(Naubahar) (1952) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Roshan

Lyrics

ho o phool chun le
phool chun le mere baalam
ke jaane kab daal jhhuke
jaane kab aawe
jaane kab aawe ae mausam
o o
phool chun le
phool chun le mere baalam
ke jaane kab daal jhhuke
jaane kab aawe ae
jaane kab aawe ae mausam

jaise gaal kisi gori ke
aise khile gulaab ho o
sooraj ki chanchal kirnon ki
neeyat huyi kharaab
ho o
sooraj ki chanchal kirnon ki
neeyat huyi kharaab
chalte hain
chalte hain teer hardam
ke jaane kab daal jhhuke
jaane kab aawe
jaane kab aawe ae mausam

raat ke taare
phulwaa banwe
sapnon ke sau rang ho o
ped se lipti bel ye poochhe
kaun hai tere sang ho o
ped se lipti bel ye poochhe
kaun hai tere sang
gaawe koyal
gaawe koyal taan sun sun (?)
ke jaane kab daal jhhuke
jaane kab aawe
jaane kab aawe ae mausam

ho o
phool chun le
phool chun le mere baalam
ke jaane kab daal jhhuke
jaane kab aawe ae
jaane kab aawe ae mausam
