Today (11 august 2017) is the birth anniversary of Gopal Singh Nepali (11 aug 1911-17 april 1963).

Gopal Singh Nepali was one of the severeal people from literary circle who tried their hands in Hindi movies. Unlike some others who failed to make their mark in Hindi movies, Gopal Singh Nepali had a reasonably long innings in Hindi movies as a lyricist. He began his career as a lyricist in 1945 with “Begam”(1945) and he remained active for the next two decades till his death.

Gopal Singh Nepali had worked with S D Burman, Chitragupta, Anil Biswas etc. during his early career. He was subsequently typed cast as a lyricist of mythological/ religious movies.

“Bhakt Pooran”(1952) aka “Parasmani” was a partially colour film. This mythological movie was produced by Vinod Chandra Desai and directed by Dhirubhai Desai for Vinod Films, Bombay. The movie had Nirupa Roy, Shahu Modak, Vanmala, Sapru, B M Vyas, Niranjan Sharma, Lalita Pawar, Shanta Kunwar, Radha, Dhuliya, Lathani, Amina, Munnas, Anwari, Pratibha, Ramesh Tiwari, Dilip Pahalwan, M Tandon, Baby Naaz, Pappu etc in it.

Gopal Singh Nepali penned around 400 songs in 50 movies. More than one hundred on his songs are already represented in the blog.

Three songs from “Bhakt Pooran”(1952) have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Bhakt Pooran”(1952) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta, a music director who teamed up with Gopal Singh Nepali in 18 movies.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song. From the sounds of it, this song is a Lord Krishn Radha genre of song, and that way a topical song, seeing that Krishn Janmashtmi is round the corner. What a nice hummable “roothhna-manaana” genre of song ! This was one of the songs that I had shortlisted as Gopal Singh Nepali’s century song in the blog before I settled for another song.


Song-Ik din chameli kunj mein thhandi hawa bahne lagi…akeli mujhe chhod ke (Bhakt Pooran)(1952) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gopal Singh Nepali, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

Ik din chameli kunj mein
thhandi hawa bahne ae ae lagi

mohan miley to raadhika
ungli pakad kehne lagi
akeli mujhe chhod ke
kaho jee tum gaye thhe kidhar
na to tum thhe idhar
na to tum thhe udhhar
akeli mujhe chhod ke
kaho jee tum gaye thhe kidhar
na to tum thhe idhar
na to tum thhe udhhar

chameli mein bhi dhoondha jee
champa bhi dekh li
chameli mein bhi dhoondha jee
champa bhi dekh li ee
jab kahin nahin miley
to phoolon ki maala phenk di
phoolon ki maala phenk di ee
main royi raat bhar
akeli mujhe chhod ke
kaho jee tum gaye thhe kidhar
na to tum thhe idhar
na to tum thhe udhhar

tum laut ke jo aaye na
main saari raat soyi na
tum laut ke jo aaye na
main saari raat soyi na aa
tumhaari to hain saikdon jee
mera apna koyi na
mera apna koyi na aa
main royi raat bhar
akeli mujhe chhod ke
kaho jee tum gaye thhe kidhar
na to tum thhe idhar
na to tum thhe udhhar

pakad ke meri baanh
mujhe raah mein na chhodna
pakad ke meri baanh
mujhe raah mein na chhodna aa
kalaai todne waale
kahin tum dil na todna
kahin tum dil na todna aa
main royi raat bhar
akeli mujhe chhod ke
kaho jee tum gaye thhe kidhar
na to tum thhe idhar
na to tum thhe udhhar
