“Narad Muni”(1949) was directed by Raman B Desai for Diljit Chitra Bombay. The movie had Babu Raje, Latabai, Poornima, Devendra, Urmila, Kusum Thakkar, Kalpana Kumari, Shanti Madhok, Chandrika, Indumati, Shobha Thakur, Kamlakant, Suryakant, Amodiya, Kamlesh Thakar, Bharat Kumar, Popat Lal, Chunnilal Nayak, Pinakin Shah, Manjibhai, Lajendra, Sonigra, Bhupatrai Ojha, Vithal Pandya, Sitaram Sharma etc. This extremely obscure mythological movie had nine eqaully obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Narad Muni”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung as well as composed by Bulo C Rani. Pt Indra Chandra is the lyricist.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead character playing Narad Muni while strumming on his Veena. To those who have not read “Chandamama” and other such magazines, Narad Muni was the divine messenger of the gods who would visit people and tell them what was happening elsewhere. Some uncharitable people regard him as backbiter of the gods, ably played by Jeewan in quite a few mythological movies of those days. Others feel that he was into news services with his NBC (Narad Broadcasting Company). 🙂

It must be said that Bulo C Rani’s voice sounds quite appropriate for the character of Narad Muni. 🙂

I have not been able to get a few words right in this song. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable in the lyrics.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. With this song, “Narad Muni”(1949) makes its debut in the blog.

Song-Ik veena hai sansaar (Narad Muni)(1949) Singer-Bulo C Rani, Lyrics-Pt Indra, MD-Bulo C Rani


Ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ke jis mein sukh dukh ki jhankaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar
hari om
hari om
hari om
hari om

alag alag hain
phir bhi ek hain
sapt suron ke taar aar
alag alag hain
phir bhi ek hain
sapt suron ke taar
taar ye komal aur kathor
jagat mein
goonj rahe chahoon oar
inki agam(??) apaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar
hari om
hari om
hari om
hari om

hanse koi sukh ke taaron par
roye koi dukh ke taaron par
hanse koi sukh ke taaron par
roye koi dukh ke taaron par
donon taar milaaye koi
gyaani soch vichaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar
hari om
hari om
hari om
hari om

maan aur apmaan na maane
maan aur apmaan na maane
nis din peer paraayi jaane
nis din peer paraayi jaane
naaraayan ki dhun ho mukh mein
man mein jag upkaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ke jismein sukh dukh ki jhankaar
ik veena hai sansaar
ik veena hai sansaar

Without meaning any insult to Bulo C. Rani, I wish he had used a Rafi or a Manna De to do greater justice to the excellent lyrics and music in this number.

At times for character actors such matured voices are needed

Out 17(may be more) only 7 songs he has sung in his direction. Rest by others. The others loved his voice more than himself

Ek Sunder Geet sunane ke liye Dhanyavad. U are really make us at least a ‘KANSEN’

Unlike Shekharbhai, I like Bulo’s voice. He has depth and baas in his voice suitable for the character, he is singing for, as mentioned by Atulbhai. He provides a change from monotony of hearing Bhajans in Rafi or Manna’s voices.
