This is a song from film Madhubala-1950.

Will you be not happy if you get the Cake and eat it too ? Same thing happened whenever Handsome Dev Anand and the most beautiful actress of Hindi films, Madhubala acted together in a film. The audience used to become ecstatic with joy watching their films. No one cared if the story was weak or the music was third grade. What was more important was to see Dev and Madhubala, with a contented heart !

Dev Anand had such a magical spell over the people of India that his looks and styles were simply loved by them. Some two years ago, I was invited to a musical programme in Borivali, Mumbai. The venue was the Municipal Garden with a working stage. Old songs were sung by trained young aspiring singers and an estimated crowd of about 300-400 people of all ages were enjoying the Musical Evening. As soon as an announcement was made that a singer would sing the song “Maana janaab ne pukaara nahin” from Paying Guest-1957, there was a huge round of clapping and shouting from the people. When the song actually started, suddenly a man of about 70+ years climbed on the stage, upped his shirt collar and started dancing on the song beat, exactly in Dev Anand style. The audience was so excited, they not only stood up and clapped to the beat of the song, but also,after the song, the dancing old man was carried on their shoulders and was much appreciated. It was such a wonderful feeling, I never realised when I too had stood up, clapped and shouted !

Even today, such is the magic of this ever young Hero-Dev Anand on Indian people. I too was his fan till he started directing and producing awful films. Dev was highly self centred. He was very careful about his style, image, how he looked and how he dressed. His brother Vijay Anand said about him, “Dev was like a child who is engrossed in his own world.” To protect his own image, Dev even rejected many films,which others got and which made their lives. One such film was Zanjeer. He refused it because there were no songs in the film for the hero!

In this film Madhubala-50, Dev and Madhubala acted together for the second time. Their first film together was Nirala also made in 1950, but released first. In all they acted together in 8 films. This was a record till the Dream girl Hema Malini broke it, by acting in 11 films with Dev Anand.

Though Dev ( 26-9-1923) was 10 years older than Madhubala ( 14-2-1933), he was very junior to her in the Film industry. By the time Dev Anand did his first film Hum Ek Hain-1946, Madhubala had already done 13 films. She had started as a child artist in Swastik-1939. Madhubala-50 was her 35th film and Dev’s 13th film ! Fron Nirala-50 to Sharabi-64, they did 8 films together. Dev Anand did 116 films and sang 303 songs on screen. Madhubala did only 79 films and sang 188 songs on screen. Her speed came down drastically, after her Heart ailment was detected while shooting in Madras and the treatment for it started.

Dev of course continued steadily for a much longer period, but out of his 116 films how many films were actually watchable is a moot question.

Madhubala was a film made by Ranjit Studios and its Music Director was Lachhiram.

LACHHIRAM is a name not known to many readers. He was a very talented but unlucky composer, who, despite his good work was never counted among the A grade composers. LACHHIRAM TOMAR was a Punjabi Chaudhary born in the princely state of Kuthar in the present day Himachal Pradesh. His father died early and he was brought up and trained in music by the Rana Jagjit Chandra of Kuthar, under the tutelage of Ustad Noore Khan. He came to Delhi at the age of 20 years and served in H.M.V.Company as a singer. He cut many records there. Side by side he was singing on A.I.R. also.

Aziz Kashmiri, writer and Director of Shorey Films, Lahore came scouting for talents and engaged him as an assistant to music composer for a salary of Rs.750 per month. He assisted in films like Champa, Badnami and Shalimar. His first independent film as a composer was Aarsi-47, which celebrated Silver jubilee. Then he did Mohini, Birhan and Director in 47-48 and did Guru Dakshina and Madhubala in 1950.

The songs of Madhubala became Hits, but his luck misfired. He suffered from T.B. and had to leave everything. He lost one Lung also in it. However this brave man came back and did Ameer, Shaheed Bhagat Singh-54 (Sarfaroshi ki tamanna-Rafi), Maharani Jhansi, Guru Ghantal and Hazaar pariyaan-59. In his last spell he did Do Shahzade, Razia Sultan and his Last film was Main Suhagan Hoon-64.

Lachhiram Tomar died on 5-2-1966 at Bombay.

The cast of the film was Dev Anand, Madhubala, Jeewan, Randhir, Manju etc. The film was directed by Prahlad Dutt. Prahlad Dutt started first as an actor and did roles in films like Ek hi Bhool-40 etc. Then he became a junior director in Rajit and directed his first film Shirin Farhad in 1945. Then came Piya Ghar aaja-47,Mitti ke Khilone-48,Nazare-49 and Madhubala-50.

The story of Madhubala was

Madhubala(Madhubala) was heir to two inheritances of her father-wealth and Health- heart disease. She was leading a lonely life-her only solace being the Doctor(Randhir) who was more like a father to her. Many young people were meeting her off and on with ulterior motives and there was regular tussle between them to win her favours. Amongst them the most insistent was Kalicharan (Jeevan), the proprietor of a dramatic company.

Madhubala was passing her days trying to draw what comfort she could. Seeing her condition, the Doctor advised her to go to a village as the cool and sedate atmosphere over there would have a soothing effect on her. In the village Madhubala met Ashok ( Dev Anand). Each thought the other a bit overbearing in behaviour. But time and meetings tore down and eliminated the first bad impressions and both began to love each other ( nafrat hamaare pyar ki pehli seedhi hai). They decided to marry. Preparations for marriage were going ahead. As luck would have it, Madhubala’s friends headed by Kalicharan came to the village in search of her. Gauging the state of affairs, Kalicharan decided his game. He cracked cruel jokes at Ashok’s cost. Ashok was stung to the core. He felt that Madhubala was a party to this. He broke up the preparation for the marriage.

Because of Ashok’s attitude Madhubala came to the city but with a weakened heart. She began to lose interest in life. Ashok began to relent. He came to the city and met Madhubala. But Madhubala’s cold attitude upset him. He felt as if the whole world had gone against him and he, in a frenzy, began to create havoc and nuisance in the street. He was fined for this misdemeanour. He was released as Madhubala paid the fine. Kalicharan played his cards expertly. He whispered into Ashok’s ears that Madhubala paid up the find just to spite him. He engaged him in his dramatic company in order to put an end to Ashok’s life. A burning curtain fell on Ashok’s head and he lost his eyesight.

Madhubala went to the hospital to see him but Ashok scolded her. Ashok went to his native place. Madhubala went to the village. She got herself engaged at his place under an assumed name-Sheela. Under her careful nursing Ashok’s eyes were cured. When Ashok came to know that Sheela and Madhubala were the same, he got excited. But her Doctor(Randhir) explained the position and on all the misunderstandings being removed, the lovers were united.

Out of 9 songs of this film, we have already discussed two songs and this is the third song from this movie to be discussed here. It is written by Rajendra Krishna and is sung by Talat mehmood and Shamshad Begum with chorus.

Lyrics

jawaani ke zamaane mein jo

peechhe pachtaayega
jawaani ke zamaane mein jo

peechhe pachhtaayega

pyaar kisi se karne wala
mauj udaayega
kaho ji kaisi kahi
ho raaja achchi kahi
kaho ji kaisi kahi
haaye raaja achchi kahi

ho o o o
o o o o

kaho ji kis’se pyaar karen ji
kis’se aankhen chaar karen ji
kis’se aankhen chaar karen
aen aen

kaho ji kis’se pyaar karen ji
kis’se aankhen chaar kare ji
kis’se aankhen chaar karen

pyaar karo dilwaalon se
ulfat ke matwaalon se
pyaar karo dilwaalon se
ulfat ke matwaalon se

ulfat ka dam bharne waala
maze udaayega
kaho ji kaisi kahi
ho raaja achchi kahi
kaho ji kaisi kahi
haaye raaja achchi kahi

jisko ulfat karte dekha

thhandi aahen bharte dekha
aa aa aa aa

jisko ulfat karte dekha
thhandi aahen bharte dekha
thhandi aahen bharte dekha

pyaar mein aahon se na darna
ulfat ko badnaam na karna
pyaar mein aahon se na darna
ulfat ko badnaam na karna

ulfat mein mit jaane waala
naam kamaayega
kaho ji kaisi kahi
ho raaja achchi kahi
kaho ji kaisi kahi
haaye raaja achchi kahi

jawaani ke zamaane mein jo
dil na lagayega
peechhe pachtayega
pyaar kisi se karne waala
mauj udaayega

kaho ji kaisi kahi
ho raaja achchi kahi
kaho ji kaisi kahi
haaye raaja achchi kahi
