Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Chal Baadlon Se Aage

Posted on: September 26, 2017


This article is written by Avinash Scrapwala, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog. This article is meant to be posted in atulsongaday.me.

I have in one of my earlier posts mentioned this that music lovers like me always have songs playing in their mind. Or some incidents/memories will always bring some song to mind (that is what I think). For me many things / situations time to time bring me to some song, or it will remind me of some song that I would have listened earlier may be years before or a song which is lying dormant in my memory.

Over the years, after this social networking sites came into being sometimes I have been sharing some photographs to my friend circles on these sites. I like to click photos of nature and surroundings whenever I get chance to do that. And generally, I try to share them with a ‘caption’ which mostly is a ‘mukhda’ or few lines of a song of a Hindi movie (and preferably it would be a song penned by Sahir).

Couple of weeks back when I was travelling by air I had taken few snapshots from the window of my flight. The window seat was not my original seat. But I was requested to exchange it by a couple, who were allotted two different locations :). Normally I do not use the mobile in flight, but could not resist the temptation as I was experiencing this clear sky above the clouds. It was almost at 38,000 feet and given the layer of the clouds below I was very excited to watch this.

After few days when I get settled at my ‘base station’ I browsed through these snapshots, thinking of sharing them, and thinking of the ‘caption’ that I should write with the picture, I just broke into humming these lines ‘Chal baadalon se aage. . . ’

When I checked on the blog it was not there. I was surprised!! How can it happen that this was yet to be posted? So, I checked again and again with the movie details etc. but it was not there. I was aware of this song because it was in my collection in one of the compilations (cassette) published by HMV in 1986.

I got in touch with my daughter in India to send me the photo of the cover of the cassette and also the photo of this movie page from the respective HFGK. Today I am presenting this beautiful song from the movie ‘Ek Jhalak’ (1957). That is how I get to this song and in turn this post here.

‘Ek Jhalak’ was directed by Kalidas for Deep and Pradeep Productions, Bombay. It was produced by Deep Khosla and Pradeep Kumar. The cast of ‘Ek Jhalak-1957’ includes Vijayantimala, Pradeep Kumar, Anita Guha, Rajendra Kumar, Pran, Mubarak, Lalita Pawar, Bipin Gupta, Randhir, Om Prakash, Hira Sawant, Rashid Khan, Tuntun, CV Rao, Patanjali, Gajendra, Amin, Fazal Khan, Saar, Deep Khosla and others.

Music of this movie was composed by Hemant Kumar and all the nine songs in this movie (as per HFGK) were written by SH Bihari. Out of these nine songs (including one multiple version song) four songs have already been posted on the blog. These are – “Baharen Bhi Dekhi, Nazaare Bhi Dekhe“, “Gori Chori Chori Jaana Buri Baat Hai“, “Aa Ja Zara Mere Dil Ke Sahaare Dilruba“, and “Ye Hansta Hua Kaarvaan Zindagi Ka. . .“.

Today, 26th September also happens to be the Remembrance Day (16.06.1920 – 26.09.1989) of singer-composer Hemant Kumar Mukherjee whom we fondly know as Hemant Kumar. On this occasion, instead of going into the biographical and filmographical details of the songs sung by and/or composed by Hemant Kumar, I will just list out the other songs from this compilation ‘Vintage Favourites – Hemant Kumar – Sings His Own Compositions’ brought out by HMV in 1986 and which was bought by me on 13.03.1987 for my collection.

 

Going through the list of this songs and listening them is also enough to create the magic of that ‘unique’ voice which has left behind a great legacy of memorable and unforgettable gems (and many of my favourite categories viz. ‘motivational’ and ‘philosophical’)

All wonderful songs remembering us of the ‘vintage’ voice of Hemant Kumar. Let us now enjoy the today’s song. When I listened to it I was doubtful of the available link due to the duration of the song. So, I arranged a remote listening of this song in the cassette in my collection and listen it on the phone to confirm it. However the available song is a complete song and there is no second antaraa in this song.

As per HFGK the title of the today’s song is mentioned as “O Jal Mein Rehnewaali… Chal Baadalon Se Aage”. However in the available links the song starts with the words ‘chal baadalon se aage’. There may be some introductory lines which I think may not be included in the soundtrack of this song.


Song – Chal Baadlon Se Aage (Ek Jhalak) (1957) Singers – Hemant Kumar, Asha Bhosle,  Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

chal baadalon se aage
kuchh aur hi samaa hai
har cheez hai niraali
har zindagi jawaan hai

chal baadalon se aage
kuchh aur hi samaa hai
har cheez hai niraali
har zindagi jawaan hai
chal baadlon se aage

jisey dekhne ko meri
aankhen taras rahi hai. . .
jisey dekhne ko meri
aankhen taras rahi hai
wo jagah jahaan pe har dam
khushiyaan baras rahi hai
mere khwaab ki wo duniyaa
batlaao to kahaan hai
har cheez hai niraali
har zindagi jawaan hai

chal baadalon se aage
kuchh aur hi samaa hai
har cheez hai niraali
har zindagi jawaan hai
chal baadalon se aage

चल बादलों से आगे
कुछ और ही समा है
हर चीज़ है निराली
हर ज़िन्दगी जवाँ है

चल बादलों से आगे
कुछ और ही समा है
हर चीज़ है निराली
हर ज़िन्दगी जवाँ है

जिसे देखने को मेरी
आँखें तरस रही है
जिसे देखने को मेरी
आँखें तरस रही है
वो जगह जहां पे हर दम
खुशियाँ बरस रही है
मेरे ख्वाब की वो दुनिया
बतलाओ तो कहाँ है
हर चीज़ है निराली
हर ज़िन्दगी जवाँ है

चल बादलों से आगे
कुछ और ही समा है
हर चीज़ है निराली
हर ज़िन्दगी जवाँ है

What a beautiful song! I’m not sure I’ve heard it before – or I just might have, a long time ago. Whatever it is, am so happy to listen to it now, it’s lovely.

Thanks, Avinashji. And yes, from an aircraft, the views are sometimes spectacular. I’ve never taken a pic though. 🙂

Thank you Raja ji for liking it. It’s my pleasure.
Thanks again 🙏

good one very melodious
