Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Ye kaisi dillagi hai

In Hindi movies, stories of old movies are often repackaged and presented as new movies. There have been occasions when the same story was made into two films by the same maker. For example, Mehboob Khan made “Aurat”(1940) with Sardar Akhtar, Surendra, Kanhaiyalal and Arun Kumar Ahuja etc in it. He repackaged the story of this movie and made the blockbuster “Mother India”(1957) with Nargis, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar etc in it. Both these movies turned out to be successful. If we look at movies of recent vintage then Rajshree Productions made “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982) with Sachin, Sadhana Singh etc in a low budget and this movie did well in rural and semi rural areas of Hindi belt. One decade later, the same movie was repackaged and presented as a tale of city slickers instead of village folks and the result was a mega hit viz. “Ham Aapke Hain Kaun”(1993).

It is not that repackaged movies always turn blockbusters. There are producers who have ended up burning their fingers in their attempts to remake their movies. Kidar Sharma had made “Chitralekha” in 1941 with Mehtab, Nandrekar etc in it. This movie was a reasonable hit. Kidar Sharma decided to remake this movie in 1964 with the same name. But “Chitralekha”(1964) badly flopped at the box office.

In the above examples, old wine was repackaged in new bottles and marketed as fresh product, and in case of “Mother India”(1957) and “Ham Aapke Hain Kaun”(1993), the repackaging turned out to be extremely successful.

Then there is this curious example where a movie was released in 1949 and it failed. Six years later, the maker of the movie, secure in the knowledge that few people recalled his movie, decided to re release the movie again. No, he did not make a fresh movie with new actors. He re released the same movie again, by simply changing the title. So this was a case of an old wine beiing resold in the same old bottle. Only the label was changed.

The movie, when originally released in 1949 was called “Amar Kahaani”. The re released movie of 1955 was called “Kanchan”. The movie was a Kamal Kunj Chitra production. It was produced by Rajendra Singh and directed by Brij Sharma. The movie had Suraiyya, Rajnan, P Jairaj, Jagdish Mehta, Raj Mehra, Sapru, Ajit etc.

Prints of neither of the movie seem to be available, so it is clear that the movie goers rejected this movie at the box office. Details of the story of this movie is not available online except in this blog. Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia has shared the story of this movie in his comment in one of the earlier songs. Here is what he has to say

The story was,Kanchan(Suraiyya) looks forward to marrying her lover Surendra(Jairaj)a lawyer,but his father(Raj Mehra) has promissed his marriage to Nirmala(Ranjana)-his friend Manoharlal’s son.

The marriage takes place. Kanchan’s brother is accused of murder, so Kanchan keeps going to Surendra for legel advise, which creates doubt and envy in Nirmala’s mind. Instigated by her manager Virendra(Ajit), Nirmala attempts Kanchan’s murder, but she survives injured.

Nirmala is arrested and suffers sorrow,pain and misery….etc.
note- In the end Surendra and Kanchan get married.

There were nine songs in “Amar Kahaani”(1949). Since the movie was rereleased as “Kanchan”(1955) without any cuts, so the same nine songs were there in this movie as well. This fact has created lots of confusion among music lovers. Six of these songs are Suraiyya songs, and online record keepers have counted the same song twice, once for each of these movies and thus they have come up with an inflated figure for the number of songs actually sung by Suraiyya. This fact created confusion in this blog too, where I would be sent the same song twice by our contributors and I would even posst it twice in the blog, before I would realise it and replace the duplicate post with some other song.

All six Suraiyya songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog and I have counted them only once and not twice unlike what has been done in many other online sites.

The movie had nine songs in all, so three songs still remain to be discussed. Here is one of the remaining songs. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of this song is available. Going by the story of the movie as presented above, it is almost certain that this song is picturised on Ranjana.


Song-Ye kaisi dillagi hai (Amar Kahaani)(1949)/Kanchan(1955) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

ye kaisi dillagi hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai
kahaan ka ye pyaar hai
kuchh aitbaar bhi nahin
kuchh aitbaar hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai

aankhon ke saamne hain
aankhon ke saamne hain
magar phir bhi door hain
magar phir bhi door hain
aankhon ke saamne hain
aankhon ke saamne hain
magar phir bhi door hain
magar phir bhi door hain
wo aa chuke hain phir bhi
wo aa chuke hain phir bhi
humen intzaar hai
kuchh aitbaar bhi nahin
kuchh aitbaar hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai

wo dil pe haath rakh ke
wo dil pe haath rakh ke
zara khud hi jaan len
zara khud hi jaan len
wo dil pe haath rakh ke
wo dil pe haath rakh ke
zara khud hi jaan len
zara khud hi jaan len
keh na sakenge honthh
keh na sakenge honthh
humen unse pyaar hai
kuchh aitbaar bhi nahin
kuchh aitbaar hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai

sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh bhi
sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh bhi
na samjhen to kya karoon
samjhen to kya karoon
sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh bhi
sab kuchh samajh ke kuchh bhi
na samjhen to kya karoon
samjhen to kya karoon
wo dekh to rahe hain
wo dekh to rahe hain
koi bekaraar hai
kuchh aitbaar bhi nahin
kuchh aitbaar hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai
kahaan ka ye pyaar hai
kuchh aitbaar bhi nahin
kuchh aitbaar hai
ye kaisi dillagi hai

Tune sounds like afsana likh rahi hu
Voice like Suraiya
But it has to be HB brand of monotonous music
