There are certain special words which seem to be favourites of film makers. These are used frequently in the Titles of films that are made. Some of the words I counted are not surprising. The work Ek (or its variations) has the distinction of appearing most frequently in the title of Hindi movies. Some examples for such titles are Ek roz, Ek thi Ladki, Eklavya etc etc. A staggesring 209 number of Hindi movies contain the word “Ek” or its variations !. This is for the period from 1931 to 2012. The next most popular words are Mera/Meri-165 films, Dil- 121 , Pyaar- 108 , Do- 91 , Hum/Ham/Hamara/Hamari – 87, Prem – 68 , Ghar- 51 , Veer – 45 etc etc.

Today’s song for discussion is from the film Dost-54. There were 5 films with this Title- in 1944,54,74,89 and 90. There were 17 movies in all that had the word “Dost” in their titles.

This 1954 film Dost was a Kuldip Pictures Ltd. presentation and its Producer was Kuldip Sehgal. The film was directed by Rajendra Sharma, the Lyricists were, Verma Malik, Asad Bhopali, Satyarthi, Omprakash and Bootaram Sharma. Music was by Hansraj Behl. There were 7 songs in this film. 4 songs from this movie have already been discussed in the blog. This song is the 5th song from this movie to appear in the blog.

Hansraj Behl, in my opinion,is one of those composers in film world, who composed lots of melodious songs. Unfortunately, he was also one of those composers who never got Big banners to work for. He and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 62 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film I”nsaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl is one of the music directors who became successful in the post independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 19 November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwaari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Laakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Aazadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Aazadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nation wide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mere Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost (1954) sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhani (1956), ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay (1957), ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh (1960), ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan (1959) and ‘Tujhko Dhoondhu To Dhoondhu Kahaan..’ from Milan (1959) crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Aazam in 1965.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

The cast of the film “Dost”(1954) consisted of Suresh, Usha Kiran, Majnu, Mohna, Randhir, Uma Datt, Kammo etc etc.

The Hero Suresh was a handsome person. He became very famous after the song “suhaani raat dhal chuki” from the film Dulari-49. This was shot on him. His real name was Nazeem Ahmed. He was born at Gurdaspur, Punjab, on 13-10-1929. He acted in his first film,’Nishan E Jung’-37,as a child artiste as the age of 8 years. Then came Thokar-39,Bandhan-40,Mera Sansar-41,Anjaan-41 and Basant-42-all in child roles and all from Bombay Talkies stable.

He shifted to Kardar studios and became Kardar’s favourite. Kardar ensured that Suresh got the leading actresses as his Heroines- Suraiya, Geeta Bali, Vyjayanti Mala, Nigar Sultana, Shyama, Madhubla, Padmini, Ameeta etc. Some of his famous films were, Dulaari, Dastaan(with Raj Kapoor and Al Nasir), Goonj, Deewana(Suraiya), Jaadoo(Nalini Jaywant), Char Chaand(Shyama), Rishta(N.Sultana), Dost (Usha kiran), Yasmin, Aji bas Shukriya, Qaidi, ujala, Love marriage, Dillagi, Duniya, Brahmachari etc. In all his tally adds up to 43 films.

In 1950, Suresh tried his luck by migrating to Pakistan. He got only two films there-Do Kinare-50 and Eid-51. He soon came back. After he stopped getting lead roles, he did side and character roles. He tried to become a Producer with ‘Ganga aur Suraj’ in the 70s. To his bad luck his main villain, Anwar Hussain got Paralysis and had to be replaced with Kader Khan. The film was delayed and was released only in 1980. It was a Flop. He broke down with the financial loss and died almost penniless on 14-7-1979. Film got released only after his death.

Today’s song is definitely one of the more melodious songs of Madhubala Jhaveri-Chawla. The tune is very catchyand it will surely stay with you for quite some time.


Song-Dil de ke bahut pachhtaaye (Dost)(1954) Singer-Madhubala Jhaweri, Lyrics-Satyarthi, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

Dil deke bahut pachhtaaye
bahut pachhtaaye
ke saara jag
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye
dil deke ae
dil deke bahut pachhtaaye
bahut pachhtaaye
ke saara jag
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye

ulfat ke geet
mere honthon pe reh gaye
armaan aansoo ban ban ke beh gaye
O ban ban ke beh gaye
Ulfat ke geet
mere honthon pe reh gaye
armaan aansoo ban ban ke beh gaye
O ban ban ke beh gaye
gham ka nishaana dil
o dil kyun ho gaya aa
kyun ho gaya
dil deke ae
dil deke bahut pachhtaaye
bahut pachhtaaye
ke saara jag
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haye
Ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye

adhoora raha do dilon ka fasaana
kaali ghata ban ke chhaaya zamaana
ho chaayaa zamaana
adhoora raha do dilon ka fasaana
kaali ghata ban ke chhaaya zamaana
ho chhaayaa zaamana
kisamt banaane waala
o bairi kyun so gaya
kyun so gaya
dil deke ae
dil deke bahut pachhtaaye
bahut pachhtaaye
ke Saara jag
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye

teri yaad ko apne dil mein chhupaa ke
rote hain hum
apna sab kuchh luta ke
ho sab kuchh luta ke
teri yaad ko apne dil mein chhupa ke
rote hain hum
apna sab kuchh luta ke
O sab kuchh luta ke
kya kaa thha socha hamne
o humne
kya ho gaya
kya ho gaya
dil deke
dil deke bahut pachhtaaye
bahut pachhtaaye
ke saara jag
ke saara jag bairi ho gaya haaye
ke saara jag

Was MD Vinod also called as ‘Master-ji’?

Not to my knowledge at least. I have never read anywhere about it.
-AD

H.Behl was called Master ji because he ran a music school.

Welcome back Bharatbhai after striking the pose of Bhishmapitamah for few months. Instead of bed of arrows it was bed of pain which was equally painful.

I had read an interview of Asha Bhosle about 2-3 years back in which she referred to MD Vinod as ‘Master ji’.

Yes, it was an interview of Vinod’s daughter, if I remember correctly where she recalls her meeting with Asha Bhonsle in an hospital. Asha Bhonsle, on knowing that she was Vinod’s daughter went on a nostalgia trip fondly remembering him as Master Vinod.

Atul ji,
You are correct. I now recall that Vinod’s daughter met Asha Bhosle in Dr Kapoor’s hospital.
