The Voice of Mukesh #65
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film ‘Hanuman Janam’ is a 1954 film.  It is produced by MS Pathak and Durgadas for Rani Productions, Bombay and is directed by Raja Nene.  The cast of actors includes Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Paro, Miky, Uma Dutt, Kanta Kumari, Raj Adeeb, MS Phatak, Jugnu, Lily Kelkar, Alka, Raj Sehgal, Mohini, Avtar Kishan, Lalit Kapoor, Meera, S Prakash, Meenu, and Chandabai.  The eight songs in this film are written by SP Kalla and the music direction is by Hansraj Behl.

Of the eight songs, we have two songs sung by Mukesh.  In the previous episode of this series, I had posted the first Mukesh song from this film – “Sukh Dukh Ke Donon Paaon Par”.  Today, I present the second song of Mukesh from this film.  This is ‘Bidaai’ song, the traditional song of farewell, that is an expression of a good bye to a new bride, as she prepares to leave her parents’ home to go and permanently settle in a new home, literally starting off a new life.  In the Indian tradition, this moment is an epitome of emotional flow.  And this moment has been captured in many songs in Hindi films.  On this blog itself, we now have 30 songs that belong to this category.

A very interesting side note to this song.  As I checked online, I find couple of uploads of this song.  As I played the first of them, I found that it seems to end abruptly, just close to the end of the third ‘antaraa’ (stanza).  So I tried the other link.  On playing this second one, I found the same issue with the ending of the song.  Quite intrigued, I went back to my own collection and pulled out the version that I have.  Once again, I found the same situation.  As a last resort, I turned to the definitive source of Mukesh’s songs,the  Mukesh Geet Kosh.  But in that also, I find that the lyrics available are exactly as played out in the audio versions that I had already listened to.

One possible explanation is that the song on the original 78 rpm gramophone record suffers from this discrepancy.  The timing of the song is around 3 minutes and 16 seconds or so.  It means that the original recording of the song is somewhat longer, maybe three and a half minutes or more.  That means that the actual song is longer than the capacity of a 78 rpm record.  So the producers of the record would simply have cropped the audio length to fit on the standard length of a 78 rpm record.  Does not happen often but there are a few such instances in which the song is cropped to fit the standard length, and hence, appears to end abruptly, prior to the actual end of the song.  The only way to check for the complete song now is to locate the video of this film. No luck so far, but let us hope.

Meanwhile, let us listen to this little heard song of Mukesh from 1954, and savor the melancholia that is the hallmark of this voice.
Enjoy.


Song – Gori Peehar Chhod Mukh Hamse Mod (Hanuman Janam) (1954) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – SP Kalla, MD – Hansraj Behl

Lyrics

gori peehar chhod
mukh humse mod
chali piya ke des chali ho
piya ke des chali ho

maa ki pyaari
raajdulaari
chham chham paaon badhaaye
chham chham paaon badhaaye
tadap tadap kar maa ki mamta
thaam jiya reh jaaye. . .
thaam jiya reh jaaye
reh jaaye
gori peehar chhod
mukh humse mod
chali piya ke des chali ho
piya ke des chali ho

jhar jhar roye
sang saheli. . .
jhar jhar roye
sang saheli
tumko yaad dilaaye
tumko yaad dilaaye
bhool na jaana
o dulhaniya
jaa ke des paraaye
jaa ke des paraaye
chali ho ooo ooo
ooo ooo oooo
gori peehar chhod
mukh humse mod
chali piya ke des chali ho
piya ke des chali ho

nain lajeele
mad se geele
nain lajeele
mad se geele
dekhat roop lubhaaye
dekhat roop lubhaaye
nai naveli
pee kaa aangan
swarg banaane jaaye
swarg banaane jaaye

—————————————–

गोरी पीहर छोड़
मुख हमसे मोड़
चली पिया के देस चली हो
पिया के देस चली हो

माँ की प्यारी
राजदुलारी
छम छम पाँव बढ़ाए
छम छम पाँव बढ़ाए
तड़प तड़प कर माँ की ममता
थाम जिया रह जाये
थाम जिया रह जाये
रह जाये
गोरी पीहर छोड़
मुख हमसे मोड़
चली पिया के देस चली हो
पिया के देस चली हो

झर झर रोये
संग सहेली
झर झर रोये
संग सहेली
तुमको याद दिलाये
तुमको याद दिलाये
भूल ना जाना
ओ दुल्हनिया
जा के देस पराये
जा के देस पराये
चली हो ओ ओ
ओ ओ ओ
गोरी पीहर छोड़
मुख हमसे मोड़
चली पिया के देस चली हो
पिया के देस चली हो

नैन लजीले
मद से गीले
नैन लजीले
मद से गीले
देखत रूप लुभाए
देखत रूप लुभाए
नई नवेली
पी का आँगन
स्वर्ग बनाने जाये
स्वर्ग बनाने जाये

Sudhirji,
It is the best Vidaai song. What pathos and poignancy which only Mukesh can bring out. It moved me no end. It moistened my eyes. Thanks

Sudhir ji,
Thanks a lot for introducing me to this wonderful soulful number.
One of the best Vidaai songs, like Nitin ji has said.
Mukesh is the first name that comes to mind when one would like to search for the most fitting voice to suit a song full of pathos.
What a pleasing melody from Hansraj Behl and the excellent lyrics from S.P. Kalla. An amazing effect.
Once again thanks and regards,
Avadh Lal

Atul ji, Sudhir ji,

This private bidaai song sung by Mukesh may not find a place in the blog and this maybe the appropriate place to insert the link.

Regards

Maheshji,
What a find from the dustbowl of posterity. It should be conferred the status of NFS. Thanks.
