Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 18
———————————————————

CHAAND TAARA (1945) was produced under the banner of Asiatic Pictures and was directed by Mahesh Chandra. The star cast included Charlie and Swarnlata in lead roles with Jagdish Sethi, Indira, Kesari, Pandey, Ghulam Rasool, Ghory and Pesi Patel in the subsidiary roles. There were 10 songs in the film, all penned by Swami Ramanand Saraswati which were set to music by Gyan Dutt.

I was surprised to know that comedian Noor Mohammed Charlie was in the lead role paired with Swarnlata. But after reading the plot, it became clear to me as to why Charlie was chosen as a lead actor for the film. It was a slapstick comedy film. The synopsis of the film’s story, based on the review published in December 1945 issue of FILMINDIA is as under:

Raju (Charlie), a village boy is studying in a college. But he fails in the college examinations every year. Fed up with his failures, he returns to the village and bluffs the villagers about his status. But he is soon exposed by the villagers. In the village, Raju has his sweetheart named Ratan (Swaranlata), the daughter of the Village Chief (Jagdish Sethi). Raju’s father (Ghulam Rasool) is already debt-ridden and Raju is in need of money. So he decides to leave the village with a companion in search of some avenue for earning money.

Raju devises a way out to earn money. He acts as a Prince and goes to a neighbouring state which is in shambles. He imposes toll for all vehicles passing through the state and collect good amount of money. This goes on for sometime until Ratan comes there in search of Raju. She finds him in the company of Lata (Indira), the Dewan’s daughter. The usual complications comes in the story and Raju is exposed. He is condemned to be run over by a motor car as a punishment. At the last moment, the King (Pesi Patel) melts after witnessing the melodrama enacted by Ratan and Raju is saved. The story comes to an logical end with Ratan accepting Raju.

Out of 10 songs, as many as 8 songs has been rendered by Ameerbai Karnataki. One song from the film has been covered in the Blog. I am presenting the second song ‘pardes mein jaane waale’ sung by Ameerbai Karnataki. The song is penned by Swami Ramanad Saraswati and is set to music by Gyan Dutt.

It is a song of separation exquisitively rendered by Ameerbai Karnataki. Since I could not locate this song in YT, I created a video from mp3 clip and uploaded on YT.


Song-Pardes mein jaane waale saajan(Chaand Taara)(1945) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Swami Ramanand, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

pardes mein jaane waale saajan
o o o o
yaad teri phir aayi ee
pardes mein jaane waale saajan
o o o o
yaad teri phir aayi ee
saawan ki ritu mein nainon ne
ae ae ae ae ae
ro ro jhhadi lagaayi ee
saawan ki ritu mein nainon ne
ae ae ae ae ae
ro ro jhhadi lagaayi ee
pardes mein jaane waale saajan

jab se tune in nainon se
door kiya hai dera aa
jab se tune in naino se
door kiya hai dera
meri chhoti si duniya mein
chhaaya ghor andhera
meri chhoti si duniya mein
chhaaya ghor andhera
sukh kaa chaand chhupa jeewan par
kaali badaria chhaayi
sukh kaa chaand chhupa jeewan par
kaali badaria chhaayi
yaad teri phir aayi
pardes mein jaane waale saajan
o o o o o
yaad teri phir aayi
pardes mein jaane waale saajan

baag ?? toone usko
?? huye pasaare (??)
baag ?? toone usko
?? huye pasaare (??)
dard bhare hriday se tujhko
birhan teri pukaare
dard bhare hriday se tujhko
birhan teri pukaare
ab bhi na aaya to hogi
janam janam ki judaai ee ee
ab bhi na aaya to hogi
janam janam ki judaai
janam janam ki judaai
yaad teri phir aayi
pardes mein jaane waale saajan
o o o o o
yaad teri phir aayi ee
pardes mein jaane waale saajan
