“Roti”(1942) was produced and directed by Mehboob Khan for National Studios, Bombay. The movie had Chandramohan, Sheikh Mukhtar, Sitara, Ashraf Khan, Kaayam Ali, Jamshedji, Mishra and in a very rare appearance, Malika-E-Gazal Begum Akhtar, who was known as Akhtari Faizabadi in those days.

Today (7 october 2017) is the 103rd birth anniversary of Begam Akhtar (7 october 1914- 30 october 1974).

Begam Akhtar had acted in five movies. “Roti”(1942) was her first movie as an actress. She sang six songs (out of 14 songs in the movie) in this movie which were picturised on herself.

Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth Begam Akhtar song from “Roti”(1942) to appear in the blog. This song (the ninth from the movie) is a ghazal. It is sung by Begam Akhtar. The lyrics are penned by Safdar Aah Sitapuri. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears (and understanding of the Urdu language) to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections in the lyrics.


Song-Phir fasle bahaar aayi dil e deewaana (Roti)(1942) Singer-Begam Akhtar, Lyrics-Safdar Aah Sitapuri, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

aa aa aa

phir fasle bahaar aayi ee ee

dil e deewaana
phir joshe masarrat mein aen
ek naaraa e mastaana
aa aa aa aa

nayi manzil pe aai jawaani meri
nayi manzil pe aai jawaani meri
nayi manzil pe aai jawaani meri
kyun na ho jaaye dilkash kahaani meri
kyun na ho jaaye dilkash kahaani meri
kyun na ho jaaye dilkash kahaani meri
nayi manzil pe aai

bholi kaliyaan
haan aan aan
bholi kaliyaan chaman ko sajaane lagin een
rang taaza bahaaren dikhaane lagin een een een
le mubaarak tujhe shaazmaani meri
le mubaarak tujhe shaazmaani meri
nayi manzil pe aai

zindagi ke taraane ae ae ae
sunaata chale ae
aaj dil har kadam m m
geet gaata chale ae ae ae
aake bulbul kare ??jabaani meri
aake bulabul kare ??jabaani meri
aake bulabul kare ??jabaani meri
nayi manzil pe aai

Wishing our Avaji a very happy birthday.
it must be a wonderful feeling to have your birthday on the same date as a legend

Yes, I was also thinking the same that Ava shares her birthday with Begam Akhtar. 🙂

Ava-bahen, My hearty Aashirwads on your B-day (luckily coinciding with Begum Sahib’s B-Day).
Arunbhai, Today Google also commemorate Begum Akhtar’s B-Day with one glaring mistake stating that she is playing SITAR, instead of mentioning a TAANPURA.

Bharat ji,
It is NOT Google, but Economic Times Comment which says Sitar.

Bharatbhai,
I feel, the picture in the google doodle is an amalgam of Sitar and Tanpura. Please note that the instrument has 4 strings like tanpura but it has upper tumba (gourd) and frets like sitar. Begum Akhtar has been shown playing the instrument like tanpura. We do not know whether it was a mistake or the graphic designer’s interpretation of Begum Akhtar’s musical carrier develpment. By the way, Begum Akhtar learnt Sitar from Pandit Arvind Parikh in Mumbai who was one of the disciples of Ustad Vilayat Khan. .

Google assigned the work of designing the Google Doodle for Begum Akhtar to an US based Indian girl, Manjula Waldia, illustrator and graphic designer who had studied in Delhi.

ROTI (1942) was not Begum Akhtar’s first film as an actress as indicated in the article. She acted in KING FOR A DAY a.k.a. EK DIN KA BADSHAH (1933) and NAL DAMYANTI (1933). All of her songs were deleted from the film ROTI (1942) itself except for a snippet of this song during the birthday party scene. We hear it in the background before it is abruptly cut to a scene featuring Begum Akhtar being given well wishes.
