Albela main ik dilwaala

If a “Miss India “ contestant were to be asked, during the question- answer round, “What would be your next goal, if you were crowned ?”, she is unlikely to say “Mother India” :). But that is exactly what has been seen in Nargis’s celluloid journey. After her portrayal in & as ‘Miss India’ (January 1957), which cannot be described a winner at box office, she went on to portray ‘Mother India’ (October 1957) which turned out to be a land mark cinema.

But today’s song is from not so successful ‘Miss India’.

In the movie “Miss India” is not about a beauty contest winner. The movie refers to the leading lady as “Miss India”, because the character is about an educated, self reliant, righteous young lass who fights for her rights, against injustice and comes out a winner.

The story is not covered in earlier posts. Hence an overview.

Nargis graduates as a lawyer. Her father puts out a matrimonial advt asking for a match for the educated lady without expecting dowry. An imposter (Pradeep Kumar) marries her & absconds, abandoning her, & taking away her jewellery. She comes to the city, in search of him, & to reform him & continue her married life (& not to catch him & punish him- –after all she is a Bhararatiya Naari ! 🙂 .

After few fruitless days she finds him, but he is unable to recognise her (since he ran away without lifting her ‘ghoongat’.! –That is typical Bollywood!). At this point she befriends him in the guise of a young lad, so as to buy time to reform him. This disguise also helped her find a job.
(This song is at this juncture , expressing joy at finding her husband).

To cut a long story short, she manages to make him realise his misdeeds and in the end they unite. In the final scenes there is a court case where all riddles are resolved and judge notes the trouble Nargis has gone through and says she is a role model and should be referred to as “Miss India”!!

This is a very very bubbly song, as only Asha Bhonsle could sing. For me this was the most popular song of this movie.
Music of this song is by SD Burman and Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan.


Song-Albela main ik dilwaala (Miss India)(1957)Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-S D Burman

Lyrics

albela aaa
albela main ik dilwaala
bada hoon matwaala
zamaane se niraala
albela main ik dilwaala
bada hoon matwala
zamaane se niraala
albela

raat ho ya din
mujhe kya
mast main hardam
khel samjhoon zindagi ko
kya khushi kya gham
raat ho ya din
mujhe kya
mast main hardam
khel samjhoon zindagi ko
kya khushi kya gham
mana garib hoon
fir bhi azib hoon
dil ka amir hoon
ta ra ra rum
albela
albela
main ik dilwaala
bada hoon matwaala
zamaane se niraala
albela

meri nagri
man ki duniya
cheez kya hai tan
phool hoon ya chaand taare
hai ye mera dhan
meri nagri man ki duniya
cheez kya hai tan
phool hoon ya chaand taare
hai ye mera dhan
khaana kharaab hoon
pir bhi main apna aap jawaab hoon
ta ra rum
albela
albela main ik dilwaala
bada hoon matwaala
zamaane se niraala
albela

aaj ka din zindagi hai
maut ka din kal
lag raha hai chal chala
o tu bhi pyaare chal
aaj ka din Zindagi hai
maut ka din kal
lag raha hai chal chala
o tu bhi pyaare chal
mele mein ghoom ja
deewaane jhoom ja
phoolon ko choom ja
ta ra ra rum
albela
albela
main ik dilwaala
bada hoon matwaala
zamaane se niraala
albela

I heard this song today for the first time.
Thank you for bringing it to our notice.
I was surprised to hear the song and the tune from the song “tumhre sang to rain bitayi” from Sagina. SDB seemed to have recycled the older tune for his Sagina.

i agree “Tumhre sang toh rain bitayi” is this song recycled
but a nice discovery. thank you Shenoyji.
one riddle that has to be solved….y shd Asha Bhonsle give playback for a Nargis dressed as a man…. she shd ve had a male playback 😉

Rajendra Krishan and SDB > rare combo; any more?

Bahar, Ek Nazar, Saza>any more

Peevesie’s Mom : S D Burman had not discovered Usha Uthup at that time. Otherwise he might have offered her this song 🙂
