Bura hua jo inse hamaare naina lad gaye jee

Today’s song is unique. It is from the film Laadlaa-54.

One would like to know what is so unique about this song. The answer is that this is the only song in Hindi film music history which is sung by the combination of these four great singers. They are Mohd. Rafi, Talat Mehmood, Shamshad Begum and Asha Bhonsle. As far as I know, It was for the first and last time that these four singers came together to sing a song. Mohd. Rafi features in few songs combining four singers, but not these our four singers. I am amazed how composer Vinod thought of this combination in the first place !

The song is a typical hindi film ‘Nok-Jhonk’ between two pairs of lovers. Karan Dewan and his servant-cum-friend-cum-philosopher-cum-guide Agha and Shyama and her maid-cum-saheli Krishnakumari are the actors involved in this song. I am reminded of film “Angoor”-81, where there were the pairs of Sanjeev Kumar and Deven Verma and Maushumi Chatterjee and Aruna Irani. Of course the stories of these two films are different. ‘Angoor’-81 was based on Shakespeare’s ‘comedy of errors’, while this film “Laadla”(1954) has a different story.

Actually, the film’s title “Laadlaa” is a misnomer. What is generally understood by the adjective Laadlaa is that it is about a lovable child in a family. In reality, there is no such child or anything in this film. The cast of the film was Shyama, Karan Dewan, Agha, Krishnakumari, S.Nazeer, Dar Kashmiri ( Jeevan), Maruti, Sunder etc etc. The Music Director was Vinod. The story of the film is like this-

Prakash ( Karan Dewan) is a son of a very rich person. He has all the pleasures of life at his beck and call. This is what bothers him too much and he decided to venture into the world as a nobody to get its experience. In this his companion was Johnny (Agha)- his servant by job, but actually his friend Philosopher and Guide in life.

They come to Bombay and Prakash takes up a job. Here these two meet Nilu(Shyama) and Sheelu(Krishnakumari) and they fall in each other’s love. After a few love songs and scenes etc., one day Prakash meets Motilal(S.Nazeer) and they become thick friends. When Prakash goes to his home, seeing the photographs etc, he realises that Motilal is his long lost brother. Now the usual hitch appears. Both Prakash and Motilal love Nilu. Motilal falls sick in her love and Prakash is in a dilemma whether to opt for Love or Brother ?

Finally, he decides to go away and forget Nilu, so that Motilal gets Nilu. But Nilu makes it clear that she only loves Prakash and NOT Motilal. Motilal hears this and his eyes open wide. He decides to go away to Africa and the problem is thus solved.

LAADLA was a Verma film production and was Directed by Suryakumar.

Yes, he is the same Suryakumar-the famous Choreographer and Dance Director in several hit films of the 50s and 60s. He had a penchant for appearing in the dances on the screen in many films. During our college days it was our favourite past time to locate Suryakumar in a dance item.

Dancer Azuri picked up two boys from an orphanage in the 1940s. Their names were Tony and Robert. She trained them to become professional dancers. Later on Tony was known as Krishna Kumar. He did a number of films in the 1940s and early 1950s. One of his famous and popular song was “o janewale balamva laut ke aa” from the film Rattan-44. In this song Krishnakumar and Azuri had danced. Unfortunately he was murdered by his rivals.

Robert came to be known as Suryakumar. originally a dancer, he became Dance master or Choreographer. He was active from 1951 to 1985, working in more than 100 films.

Suryakumar started his film career as assistant in the sound department in Saigal’s last film,’Parwaana’-1947. In those days the term ‘Chorographer’ was not used. They were simply called ‘Dance masters’ or ‘Dance Directors’.

Actress Azurie had a German father and an Indian mother. She is considered as a pioneer in Film dancing in India. She was so famous in films that Cuckoo modelled herself on her dancing and succeeded. Azurie(1907-1998) trained Suryakumar in dancing.

Suryakumar then assisted Madame Simka(a disciple of Uday Shankar) in the film “Awaara”-1951, when he first directed Helen who was in the chorus of Dancing girls that time. Suryakumar later directed Helen in 31 films. Their last film together was Bombay 405 Miles(1980).

Suryakumar himself also trained Suryanarayana, Oscar and many others. After 1970, Heroines themselves became dancing girls and the roles of Dance masters reduced considerably. Posh Choreographers came on the scene.

Suryakumar had acted in 4 films, Singar-49, Aankh Michauli-49, Har Har Mahadev-74 and Shravankumar-88. He then worked as a Production assistant and as an editor too, before retiring. Laadla was the only film he ever directed.

Normally Choreographers/Dance Directors remain unknown, that is why I have written about him here. ( some information used here is from the book,”Edwina”by prof. Surjit Singh ji-with thanks.)

Today’s song has a lovely tune. It is written by Raja Mehdi ali Khan.

Lyrics

bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji
bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji
haan
banke museebat ye to hamaare
peechhe pad gaye ji

mistar bhanwre sambhal ke rehna
kaliyaan chubhoyen kaante

dheere se bolo moti malaniya
munh pe degi chaante
dheere se bolo moti malaniya
munh pe degi chaante

baag mein rehna mushkil hai
saiyyad bigad gaye ji

ho o o o
ho
hey

bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji
ho o
banke museebat ye to hamaare
peeche pad gaye ji
ho
bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji

bhanwron gulshan khaali kar do
aur kahin tum jaa ke raho
sar pe peti rakh ke bhaago
boriya bistar gol karo

arre baap re baap
sar pe peti rakh ke bhaago
boriya bistar gol karo

tumko dil ki kholi dekar
hum to rakhad gaye ji

haaye ae ae ae ae ae
rabba
haaye
bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji

ham budhhu vyopari
ghar se aaye nafa kamaane

arre waah beta waah
ham budhhu vyopaari
ghar se aaye nafa kamaane

sawa rupaiye ki sheeshi tumko
de di chhe chhe aane

kisne kaha thha
sawa rupaiye ki sheeshi tumko
de di chhe chhe aane

ab ye dhandha hum na karenge
kaan pakad gaye ji

ho ho ho
hey hee haa
ho
hey

bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji

jyotishiyon kya toone
apne haathon ko bhi dekha
jyotishiyon kya toone
apne haathon ko bhi dekha
in haathon mein nazar na aayi
hamko pyaar ki rekha

haaye
in hathon mein najar na aayi
hamko pyar ki rekha
kya tumpe shani ka saaya hai
aji ketu beech mein aaya hai
raahu ne rang jamaaya hai
mangal ne naach nachaaya hai
ye antar dasha ki maaya hai
ham to mar gaye lagan sthhaan mein
milenge tumse ham shamshaan se
haan
aaj hamaare oonche sitaare
khaddon mein pad gaye ji

hu hu
ho o o o
ho
hey

bura hua jo inse hamaare
naina lad gaye ji
