Aayi atariya pe sone na sone diya

What is the main feature in three sets of songs given below?
1(i). do dilon ko ek dil milaakar banaana yaad hai – Kamala (1946)

(ii). kat rahi hai bekasi mein har ghadi tere baghair – Deewaani (1947)

2(i). wo dekho udhar chaand nikla gagan mein – Roopkumari (1956)

(ii). nigaahon mein tum ho khayaalon mein tum ho – Jaadoo Nagri (1961)

(iii). ye tan man watan par nichhawar karenge – Kunwaari (1966)

3(i). aaj mausam ki masti mein gaaye pawan – Banarasi Thug (1962)

(ii). ek chameli ke mandve tale – Cha Cha Cha (1964)

From the films’ names, one can know that the music directors for each set of songs were the same. That is, Gyan Dutt, S N Tripathi and Iqbal Qureshi for the first, second and third sets of songs respectively. But that is not what I am hinting at in the sets of songs. To get the answer, one needs to listen to these songs. And the result is that all individual set of songs have been composed, more or less, on the same tune. There may be a few more set of songs of with this feature.

Why do some music directors indulge in repeating their own tunes in their subsequent compositions as above? The following may be the reasons which may not be mutually exclusive:

1. In Hindi film industry, in most cases, not much advance planning is done to have a better coordination between recording the songs and the picturisation thereof. Under such situation when the shooting schedule for a song picturisation is suddenly fixed, the music director is told, sometime just a day earlier of the shooting schedule, to record the song. If the music director is not able to come with a fresh tune, he has no alternative but to use his old tune with some customisation in orchestration to meet the target.

2. Sometime, even the producer/director/distributor, with their whims and fancies, may suggest using an old tune of his for the new song composition. This suggestion may also arise to meet the deadline for recording the song. This is true in respect film production banners like Ranjit Movietone where a number of films were simultaneously under production.

3. I suspect that music directors do have their favourite tunes which are close to their hearts. It may so happen that a music director would have taken lot of efforts in composing a particular tune and expected it to become very popular. In the event, the song does not become popular for variety of reasons including the box office failure of the film, the music director is very much disappointed. He then devises a way to make it work by repeating the tune in his new composition with some variations. I think, the songs in the Set No.2 above of S N Tripathi may be falling in this category.

I am presenting a rare song ‘aayi atariya pe sone na sone diya’ from the film MEHMAAN (1942) which forms the 4th set of songs of the repeat tune used by Khemchand Prakash subsequently. The song penned by D N Madhok is sung by the actor-singer Shamim. This is a rare song in the sense that I came across this song from mp3 clip for the first time and the song was not available on YT until I uploaded the video of the song.

The rarity of this song will suggest that this song may not have become popular during the period the film was released. However, Khemchand Prakash used more or less the same tune after two years for teri pi pi ke pukaaron ne dil loot liya rendered by Ameerbai Karnataki in ‘Bhanwraa’ (1944). Incidentally, both these films came from the stable of Ranjit Movietone.

Enjoy both these songs. Of course, the differences in both the renderings are discernible to the ears.

Atul ji,

Please correct the title of the film as DEEWAANI (1947) in 1(ii) of the write-up. It was my mistake.

MD Roshan have repeated his tunes for the same reason that you have mentioned in #3. The good tunes for some reasons were not exposed properly, must be repeated so that good music lovers have second chance to enjoy them

To continue on the same subject, some MDs have limited imaginations and if some of there songs become popular, they are unable to evolve a new tune and safely repeat their popular tune and the gullible public enjoy them, not understanding the difference between good music and ‘chaalu’ music.
