“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.

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.

Nine songs (out of 14) have been covered in the blog.

Here is the tenth sing from “Roti”(1942) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Ashraf Khan and it is picturised on himself.

The song is not a “remonstrating with the Almighty” song. Rather it mocks the almighty for the act of being kind towards poor as if it was a favour to the poor !

Come to think of it, the song could well be mocking certain political parties who project themselves as wellwishers of the poor. They would glorify poverty and making sure that poor people are kept poor. They would be offered low quality sops for free or at subsidised prices. Poor people would be denied opportunities to come out of poverty, because they would be fed the myth that it was evil to become rich. The preachers themselves would not practice what they preached, ofcourse.

This hard hitting song is penned by Safdar Aah Sitapuri. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.


Song-Gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho (Roti)(1942) Singer-Ashraf Khan, Lyrics-Safdar aah Sitapuri, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum saamaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum samaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho

inhi ko loot’te ho aur inhe khairaat dete ho
inhi ko loot’te ho aur inhe khairaat dete ho
bade tum dharm waale ho
ye achcha daan karte ho
bade tum dharm waale ho
ye achcha daan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
haha

daro us waqt se jab rang badlega zamaane kaa
daro us waqt se jab rang badlega zamaane kaa
ahahaha
ye tumse lenge badla
jinka ab apmaan karte ho
ye tumse lenge badla
jinka ab apmaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum saamaan karte ho
