Fabulous Foot Tappers – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Goodness, more than 5 months since the last post in this series.  Starting in April, it was keeping a slow but regular pace till July, and then. . .

Anyways, back to one of my favorite genres – songs with a wonderful melody and a foot tapping beat that simply makes them irresistible hummers. One listens, and the mind simply wants to continue humming them, over and over again.  There are many such songs, and practically all of them are popular and well known. The thing that I am trying with this series is to locate the unfamiliar and less heard gems of this category, which have remained anonymous, mostly for the reason that they are from films that either did not get released, or films that remained obscure and unheard of themselves.

Today’s song is a surprise, in that the singing voice is Sudha Malhotra, a name that one does not immediately connect with the songs of this genre.  But then here it is.  The film is ‘Shahi Farmaan’ from 1961.  One song of this film is well known and familiar.  It is a duet in the voices of Talat and Suman Kalyanpur, and it has already appeared on our blog – “Koi Kisi Ka Meet Nahin Hai”.  Other than this song, the remaining are mostly unheard and unavailable online.

The other associated artists are lesser known than the singer.  The lyrics are from the pen of Akhtar Romani.  One of those songwriters about whom, there isn’t much information available. As I looked for information about him, most websites and books simply present at the best a narrative account of his filmography.  However, I could locate one website, from which I came to know that Akhtar Sb passed away earlier this year in July, at an age of somewhere around mid eighties. Another interesting nugget of info I found in this article is that Akhtar Sb was the contemporary of the likes of Vijay Anand, Ameen Sayani and Mahendra Kapoor at the St Xaviers College Bombay, and all of them were good friends, and all involved with the stage and dramatics activities in college.

Besides being a poet and story/screenplay writer, Akhtar Sb also had a long term association with radio.  He worked with Ameen Sayani as a producer of many of his programs for Radio Ceylon, and also for AIR Vividh Bharti when it started its full fledged commercial service in 1970. During his active career in films, he wrote about eighty songs for about 27 or 28 films.

The music is composed by Harbans. Now this name, could not be more obscure and lesser known.  One finds a page devoted to him Pankaj Raag’s ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’.  But the article is completely just about his filmography.  I could find no information about this music director.  Other than the fact that his complete name is Pt Harbans Lal.  And that he was also active with Punjabi films. He started his career working as an associate music director, back in 1949.  And his name appears in films till the 1980s. No other information is accessible. I request other knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information if available.

And the song.  Well that you will have to hear.  Such a lilting melody with a fast paced rhythm, in the sweet and young voice of Sudha ji – a song that surely needs to be remembered and played again, and not to be forgotten. Just listen and enjoy.

Song – Dil Hai Jiska Deewaana Jigar Hai Nishaana (Shahi Farmaan) (1961) Singer – Sudha Malhotra, Lyrics – Akhtar Romani, MD – Harbans

Lyrics

dil hai jiska deewaana
jigar hai nishaana
magar wo hi jaane na
haaye
jaane saara zamaana
nazar ka fasaana
haaye re wo hi jaane na. . .

dil hai jiska deewaana
jigar hai nishaana
magar wo hi jaane na
haaye
jaane saara zamaana
nazar ka fasaana
haaye re wo hi jaane na. . .

pyaar ka mausam
aa haa haa haa haa haa
din albele
o ho ho ho ho ho
pyaar ka mausam
din albele
ek jhalak to dikha ja
aa jaa
laakh hain gham
hum akele
aa ke tu hi samjha ja
aa jaa
aa ke tu hi samjha ja
aa jaa
aa jaa
dil hai jiska deewaana
jigar hai nishaana
magar wo hi jaane na
haaye
jaane saara zamaana
nazar ka fasaana
haaye re wo hi jaane na. . .

mukh se chilman
o ho ho ho ho ho
halke halke
aa haa haa haa haa
mukh se chilman
halke halke
bewafaa sarka ja
aa jaa
dil ki dhadkan
phir machal ke
keh rahi hai tu aa jaa
aa jaa
keh rahi hai tu aa jaa
aa jaa
aa jaa
dil hai jiska deewaana
jigar hai nishaana
magar wo hi jaane na
hoye
jaane saara zamaana
nazar ka fasaana
haaye re wo hi jaane na. . .

 o ho
dil hai jiska deewaana
jigar hai nishaana
magar wo hi jaane na
haaye
jaane saara zamaana
nazar ka fasaana
haaye re wo hi jaane na. . .

दिल है जिसका दीवाना
जिगर है निशाना
मगर वो ही जाने ना
हाय
जाने सारा ज़माना
नज़र का फसाना
हाय रे वो ही जाने ना॰ ॰ ॰

दिल है जिसका दीवाना
जिगर है निशाना
मगर वो ही जाने ना
हाय
जाने सारा ज़माना
नज़र का फसाना
हाय रे वो ही जाने ना॰ ॰ ॰

प्यार का मौसम
आ हा हा हा हा हा
दिन अलबेले
ओ हो हो हो हो हो
प्यार का मौसम
दिन अलबेले
एक झलक तो दिखा जा
आ जा
लाख हैं ग़म
हम अकेले
आ के तू ही समझा जा
आ जा
आ के तू ही समझा जा
आ जा
आ जा
दिल है जिसका दीवाना
जिगर है निशाना
मगर वो ही जाने ना
हाय
जाने सारा ज़माना
नज़र का फसाना
हाय रे वो ही जाने ना॰ ॰ ॰

मुख से चिलमन
ओ हो हो हो हो हो
हल्के हल्के
आ हा हा हा हा हा
मुख से चिलमन
हल्के हल्के
बेवफा सरका जा
आ जा
दिल की धड़कन
फिर मचल के
कह रही है तू आ जा
आ जा
कह रही है तू आ जा
आ जा
आ जा
दिल है जिसका दीवाना
जिगर है निशाना
मगर वो ही जाने ना
होय
जाने सारा ज़माना
नज़र का फसाना
हाय रे वो ही जाने ना॰ ॰ ॰

ओ हो
दिल है जिसका दीवाना
जिगर है निशाना
मगर वो ही जाने ना
हाय
जाने सारा ज़माना
नज़र का फसाना
हाय रे वो ही जाने ना॰ ॰ ॰
