“Jalsa”(1948) was directed by Kamlakar for Jyoti Prakash Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Geeta Bali, Vimal Bai, Baby Shyam, baby Tara, Baby Madhuri, Poornima Chaudhary, Radha, Annette, Sheela, Kamla, ramesh Arora, Neelkanth Tiwari, Omprakash Gaud, D N Shukla, Tribhuwan Sinha, Sharad Shukla, Laal etc in it.

This obscure movie had equally obscure songs in it. Here is the first song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Ramesh Gupta is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ram Ganguly.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

I have not been able to get several words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections wherever applicable is the lyrics.

Song-Laakh koshish ki koi ummeed bar aati nahin(Jalsa)(1948) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Ramesh Gupta, MD-Ram Ganguly

laakh koshish ki
koi ummeed bar aati nahin
ab to ham ko haaye re
ye zindagi bhaati nahin
maut kyun aati nahin

wo wahi ho ?? zamaana aaj saara hans raha
chaak ?? per ??
?? mere kat raha
unse milne ki koi soorat nazar aaati nahin
ab to hamko haaye re
ye zindagi bhaati nahin
maut kyun aati nahin

apna dukh sahne ki taaqat
?? na kahne ko ??
dil mein phaphole gaye hain
ashq aankhon se rawaan
ab to jeena bhi meri
dil mera behlaati nahin
ab to ab to hamko haaye re
ye zindagi bhaati nahin
maut kyun aati nahin
