Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 27
———————————————————

When I got the mp3 clip of “nainan jal bhar aaye preet kiye pachhtaaye” of ‘Samrat Ashok’ (1947) sung by Binapani Mukherjee, I checked the song list for the film in http://www.myswar.com and found out that there was another more or less similarly worded song in the movie attributed to Amirbai Karnataki. I thought that this must be another version of the same song. However, I could not get the audio clip or mp3 clip of Amirbai Karnataki version of the song on YT or any other websites. So I wrote an e-mail to Shri Sudhir Kapur whether he had the required mp3 clip. I was fairly hopeful of getting the same from him since I knew during the Mumbai Gangout meets that he had a very large collections of mp3 clips of songs of Hindi films, especially of 1930s and 1940s. And my assessment was right. Within a few hours of receiving my e-mail request, he sent me the required mp3 clip of Amirbai Karnataki version of the song.

After listening to both the versions of the songs, I had a doubt whether these two songs can be labelled as ‘ multiple version songs’ as apart from different lyrics, the tunes of both the songs were different. However, both were love songs holding opposite viewpoints about falling in love. It was ‘preet kiye pachhtaaye’ versus ‘preet mein hi sukh paaye’. I again checked with Sudhir ji and Atul ji, and they also felt that these songs can be posted on the Blog separately. HFGK have listed these two songs separately. As I stated in my earlier post, my wild guess is that both these songs may have been picturised one after another to present the opposite viewpoints of falling in love.

So here is the song ‘nainan jal bhar aaye preet mein hi sukh paaye’ from the film SAMRAT ASHOK (1947) sung by Amirbai Karnataki. The song is penned by Shams Lakhnawi and is composed by Gyan Dutt. As in the case of Binapani Mukherji song, this song has one antara only.

As stated earlier, Shri Sudhir Kapur was kind enough to provide me with mp3 clip of this rare song for which I am grateful to him. From the mp3 clip, I have made a video clip and posted on YT.


Song-Nainan jal bhar aaye preet mein hi sukh paaye (Samrat Ashok)(1947) Singer-Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics-Shams Lucknowi, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

nainan jal bhar aaaye
nainan jal bhar aaye ae ae
nainan jal bhar aaye
preet mein hi sukh paaye premi
nainan jal bhar aaye ae ae
nainan jal bhar aaye
preet mein hi sukh paaye premi
nainan jal bhar aaye ae ae
nainan jal bhar aaaye

jal kar hi sukh paaye papeeha
sone na de re bhor
jal kar hi sukh paaye papeeha
sone na de re bhor
prem dagar mein mar kar hi
hota hai amar chakor
prem dagar mein mar kar hi
hota hai amar chakor
yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
yaad kisi ki jab aa jaaye
man hi man muskaaye premi
nainan jal bhar aaye ae
nainan jal bhar aaaye
preet mein hi sukh paaye premi
nainan jal bhar aaye ae ae
nainan jal bhar aaaye

I suggest,
‘Prem dagar mein mar kar hi hota hai amar chakor’

Pratap ji,
Thanks for the sugestion which, to my mind, makes sense.

This is a very sweet typical ‘AmirbaiKarnataki’ song…Nostalgic and melodious! Many many thanks..Sir!
