“Albeli”(1945) was directed by R C Talwar for Talwar Productions, Calcutta. This movie had Ramola, Satish, Rooplekha, Hiralal, Sundar, Manorama, Usha etc in it.

This obscure movie had twelve equally obscure songs in it and details about these songs are scarce.

Here is the first song from “Albeli”(1945) to appear in the blog. HFGK is silent about the details of singers of all songs. Uploader of this song mentions Munawwar Sultana as the singer. But this voice is quite unrefined and different vis a vis the Munawwar Sultana who has sung in “Mehandi”(1947) and “Barsaat Ki Ek Raat”(1948). This cannot be the same singer. Uploaders of YT have used the very same picture for this song as well as for the songs the movies mentioned above. But I do not agree that the voice of this “Albeli”(1945) song is the same as that of other well known Munawwar Sultana songs. So I will consider this voice as an unknown female voice. Munawwar Sultana the singer was born in 1924 so she would not have an unrefined voice that we hear in this 1945 composition. Munawwar Sultana the actress was born in 1928 and she would have been 17 at that time but why would she be asked to sing songs in a movie where she did not act !

The lyricist of the song is not known either. Music was composed by G A Chishti.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voice.

With this song, “Albeli”(1945) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Bekason ki bekasi ko dekhta koi nahin (Albeli)(1945) MD-G A Chishti

Lyrics

aaj nahin
ab baj sake
toot gaye sab taa aar
saaz bichaara
kya kare
chale bajaawat ??

bekason ki bekasi ko
bekason ki bekasi ko
dekhta koi nahin
hum gareebon ki jahaan mein
hum gareebon ki jahaan mein
poochhta koi nahin
bekason ki bekasi ko
dekhta koi nahin

is zamaane mein khuda bhi
bik gaya hai unke haath
is zamaane mein khuda bhi
bik gaya hai unke haath
hai ameeron ka
gareebon ka khuda koi nahin
hai ameeron ka
gareebon ka khuda koi nahin
badnaseebi se kaho
ki mod le apna zara (?)
badnaseebi se kaho
ki mod le apna zara(?)
haay is duniya mein apna
haay is duniya mein apna
aasra koi nahin
hum gareebon ko jahaan mein
poochhta koi nahin
bekason

Atul ji,

The voice sounds like that of Munawwar Sultana to me. Please listen to her song https://atulsongaday.me/2016/02/27/ab-dil-mein-hai-barbaad-tamanna-ke-siwaa-kyaa/ for comparison purpose.

Munawwar Sultana started singing for films with ‘Dhamki’ (1945). So it is quite possible that her voice quality in the song under discussion may not be as refined as in her later songs.

G A Chishti
Khamoshi (1942)
Manchali (1943)
Shukriya (1944)
Kaliyan (1944)
Zid (1945)
Yeh Hai Zindagi(1947)
Jhoothi Kasmein(1948)
Do Baaten (1949)
Nayi Bhabhi (1950)

Atul ji,

All the songs of Albeli (1945) were written by Swaroop ‘Kaif’ as per November 1944 issue of ‘Film Pictorial’.
