Missing Films of 1960s – 25
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Back again, with another un-represented film from 1960s. The film being introduced today is ‘Ek Tha Alibaba’ from 1963. Obscure and unknown, nothing much is known about this film. Here are the details available in the Geet Kosh.

This film is listed as a fantasy film, produced under the banner of Shankar Movies. It is directed by Harbans. The film is actually a Dara Singh – Nishi starrer. The cast of actors besides the lead pair mentioned, includes Tiwari, Heeralal, Helen, Maruti, Naazi and Ram Singh. But it is strange that a Dara Singh film from 1960s is obscure. Generally, his movies are almost all available, apparently except for this one. Thankfully, the music is.

The seven listed songs in this film are written by Prem Dhawan and the music is composed by Hansraj Behl. The music director has got many singers to sing songs in this film – Mahendra Kapoor, Lata, Asha, Usha, Shamshad and Geeta Dutt. From the listings, one finds that this is the only song in the film, which has been sung by Geeta Dutt. Given this info, and the list of actors, my mind wants to say that this is a Helen song. But of course, that is just guess work. No video clips are available to confirm. I should add that this song also includes an un-credited male voice, that renders some words in each antaraa. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to kindly add more information about this film, and about this song.

This is a racy number with an attractive rhythm composed by Hansraj Behl, that Geeta Dutt has rendered so well. This and other such obscure songs, are the rewards in themselves – worth the effort to trace and locate and bring them to the attention of music lovers. I heard this song for the first time when my friend, Zafar Bhai, gave me the recordings of some songs of this film available with him. On listening to this one, I liked it instantly, and have been just waiting to get this posted.

Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ya Ilaahi Tauba Tauba (Ek Tha Alibaba) (1963) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Unidentified Male Voice, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Hansraj Behl

yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yahaan qayaamat-ullah
wahaan hai shaamat-ullah
saamne aafat-ulla..ah
jaaun kahaan main tauba tauba tauba tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba

chali jo main nazron mein maikhaana le ke
chali jo main nazron mein maikhaana le ke
maston ne roka ye awaaz de ke
o saaqiyaa
ruk to zaraa
bharta bhi jaa aa saagar mera
o saaqiyaa
ruk to zaraa
bharta bhi jaa aa saagar mera
dilbaraa

main to sharmaayee
main to ghabraayee
bhaag ke chali aayee tauba. . .
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yahaan qayaamat-ullah
wahaan hai shaamat-ullah
saamne aafat-ulla..ah
jaaun kahaan main tauba tauba tauba tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba

main hoon saamne mujhko pehchaan bhi le
main hoon saamne mujhko pehchaan bhi le
parde mein chaahe to ye jaan bhi le
dhoondhe jisey
teri nazar
main hoon wahi
o bekhabar
dhoondhe jisey
teri nazar
main hoon wahi
o bekhabar
marhabaa
marhabaa

main to sharmaayee
main to ghabraayee
bhaag ke chali aayee tauba. . .
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yahaan qayaamat-ullah
wahaan hai shaamat-ullah
saamne aafat-ulla..ah
jaaun kahaan main tauba tauba tauba tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba
yaa ilaahi tauba tauba

या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
यहाँ क़यामत-उल्लाह
वहाँ है शामत-उल्लाह
सामने आफत-उल्ला॰॰आह
जाऊँ कहाँ मैं तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा

चली जो मैं नज़रों में मयखाना ले के
चली जो मैं नज़रों में मयखाना ले के
मस्तों ने रोका ये आवाज़ दे के
ओ साक़िया
रुक तो ज़रा
भरता भी जा आ सागर मेरा
ओ साक़िया
रुक तो ज़रा
भरता भी जा आ सागर मेरा
दिलबरा
दिलबरा
दिलबरा
मैं तो शर्मायी
मैं तो घबरायी
भाग के चली आई तौबा॰॰॰
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
यहाँ क़यामत-उल्लाह
वहाँ है शामत-उल्लाह
सामने आफत-उल्ला॰॰आह
जाऊँ कहाँ मैं तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा

मैं हूँ सामने मुझको पहचान भी ले
मैं हूँ सामने मुझको पहचान भी ले
परदे में चाहे तो ये जान भी ले
ढूंढे जिसे
तेरी नज़र
मैं हूँ वही
ओ बेखबर
ढूंढे जिसे
तेरी नज़र
मैं हूँ वही
ओ बेखबर
मरहबा
मरहबा
मरहबा
मैं तो शर्मायी
मैं तो घबरायी
भाग के चली आई तौबा॰॰॰
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
यहाँ क़यामत-उल्लाह
वहाँ है शामत-उल्लाह
सामने आफत-उल्ला॰॰आह
जाऊँ कहाँ मैं तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
या इलाही तौबा तौबा
