“Chor Baazaar”(1954) was produced and directed by P N Arora for All India Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Sumitra Devi, Shammi Kapoor, Chitra, Kammo, Amar, Wazir Mohammad Khan, Shameem, Ram Avtar, Cuckoo, S M Abbas, Parasram, Munshi Munaqqa, Jagdish Kanwal, Sheetal, Om Prakash etc with Wasti, Randhir and Shashikala as guest artists.

Five songs from the movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth and final song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sardar Malik.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this melancholic song.

With this song, “Chor Baazaar”(1954) joins the list of movies with all their songs covered in the blog.

PS- HFGK mentions that this song was originally created for “Chor Baazaar”(1954). It was excluded from that movie and it was utilised in “Hoor e Arab”(1955). So it is the same song.


Song-Dar dar ki thhokaren hain (Chor Bazaar)(1954)/ (Hoor e Arab)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badyuni, MD-Sardar Malik

Lyrics

dar-dar ki thokaren hain
koi nahin sahaaraa
dar-dar ki thokaren hain
koi nahin sahaaraa
ab meri zindagi hai
tootaa hua sitaaraa
ab meri zindagi hai

guzre huye zamaane
aansoo bahaa rahe hain
lo aaj hum tumhaari
duniya se jaa rahe hain
duniya se jaa rahe hain
tum khush raho jahaan mein
kar lenge ham gujaara
dar-dar ki thokare hain

qismat mein doobnaa hai
maujon se kya darenge
qismat mein doobnaa hai
maujon se kya darenge
maalik ke aasre per
kashti ko chhod denge
kashti ko chhod denge
mil jaayegaa hamen bhi
toofaan mein kinaaraa
dar-dar ki thokaren hain
koi nahin sahaaraa
ab meri zindagi hai
tootaa hua sitaaraa
dar-dar ki thokaren hain

This is Lata in Hoor-e-Arab (1955) singing Shakeel Badayuni’s composition under Ghulam Mohammed’s baton. There seems to confusion as to the cast on the various Internet sources.

HFGK mentions that this song was originally created for “Chor Baazaar”(1954). It was excluded from that movie and was utilised in “Hoor e Arab”(1955). So it is the same song.

Atul ji,

My view is that if the song was originally composed by Sardar Malik for ‘Chor Baazaar’ (1954) but got included in ‘Hoor-e-Arab’ (1955), the song should belong only to ‘Hoor-e-Arab’ (1955) and not to ‘Chor Baazaar’ (1954). This is in keeping with a similar situation wherein the song ‘beeta huwa ek saawan’ was composed for ‘Shokhiyaan; (1951) by Jamal Sen but was later utilised for ‘Pehla Kadam’ (1980) and included only for the latter film.

One more point. When the song was composed by Sardar Malik, the credit should have legitimately gone to him in ‘Hoor-e-Arab’ and not to Ghulam Mohammed. In case of ‘beeta huwa ek saawan’, Jamal Sen got the credit for this song in ‘Pehla Kadam’ (1980).

To me, it is a song of MY liking, So thanks, Atulbhai.
Also congrats to put one more film to be included in the list of ‘All Songs Covered’. so ‘YIIIPEEEEEEE…..’

Congratulations Atul ji on covering all songs of ‘Chor Baazaar-1954′ and its joining to the’ list of movies – all songs covered’ 🙂
Yippeeee!!
