dekh hamen awaaz na dena
o bedard zamaane. . .

कवि लिख देता है, मौसीकार स्वरबद्ध कर देता है, गायक गा देता है
और फिर,

ये सब चले जाते हैं,
किसी ना किसी ग़म के साथ
यही सदा रह जाती है. . .

देख हमें आवाज़ ना देना
ओ बेदर्द ज़माने. . .

The saga of the filmland, the dizzying ups, and the ignominious lows; the crush of fans and lovers, and the loneliness of the nether years; the happy days of spring of success, and the cold desolate days of the winters of anonymity; the words of love and music, and the silent conversations with the past, waiting for a sound. Such is the tale of many an artist that applied their lives to this film world. The whirl of the merry go round does never stop, but comes a day that one cannot hold on – and then what remains is the nausea, the vertigo of having stepped off a speedy whirlwind.

Chitalkar – a darling of the industry in the 1950s, passed away this day 35 years ago. A time was when there was magic in every film that he touched. Almost a thousand songs (maybe more) just in the Hindi films all the way from early 1940s to early 1970s. Yes, there was music inside this young lad of 17 years when he debuted in the role of the hero in the film ‘Naaganand’ in 1935. Not much details are available of this period. He appeared in lesser roles in some other films in the second half of 1930s. But the next thing one hears is that he is directing music for Tamil films, before moving back to Hindi films as a music director, and be counted amongst the top echelons of music creators in the industry.

Yes, certainly there was music inside this lad. Given the body of work that he has left behind, one needs just to read the list of films, and not even wait to go through the thousand songs that he has composed, to get a feel of the heights his art had touched. He could do “Shyamal Shyamal Baran, Komal Komal Charan” with ease and with matching dexterity, he could also do “Gore Gore, O Baanke Chhore”. He could make the feet dance with “Aplam Chaplam, Chaplaai Re. . .”, and he could have tears roll down with “Kat’te Hain Dukh Mein Ye Din”. He could make the hearts fly with “Bhool Jaayen Saare Gham”, and he could measure the anguish with “Ye Hasrat Thi Ke Is Duniya Mein Bas Do Kaam Kar Jaate”. He could whirl you around with “Shola Jo Bhadke. . .”, and could also bring you to a standstill with “. . . Preet Bani Hai Duniya Mein Mar Jaane Ke Liye”.

There is so much music here, that one wonders upon the journey of life. Maybe just that some are more human than others. . .

The lyrics for this song were sent in by our dear Prakash ji. The song is from the 1970 film ‘Rootha Na Karo’, one the very last few films done by C Ramchandra. The words are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri, and the singing voice is of Asha Bhosle. A pensive song, for which we are unable to locate a video clip. In fact I did a fast forward review of the film available online, but unless I missed it, I am not able to locate the song in the available film. For readers who may have seen this film, the request is to comment on the pictruization of this song.

‘Rootha Na Karo’ is a film from the banner of Nirmal Pictures, Bombay, directed by Sundar Dar. All the seven songs in this film are written by Hasrat Jaipuri. The star cast of the film is led by Shashi Kapoor and Nanda, along with Naaz, Rajendra Nath, Aruna Irani, Sulochana, Lakshmichaya, Jaishri Talpade, Saroj, Shobha, Tuntun, Mirza Musharraf, and Reeta amongst others.

A song of apprehensions – when the love is smooth, the subtle fear of betrayal and loss is always straying around the fringes. And the expressions of heart come out something like this song.

Song – Tumhare Rooth Jaane Se  (Rootha Na Karo) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – C Ramchandra

la la laa
la la la la lallal laa
la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la
hmmm hmmm hmmmmm
hmmm hmmm hmmmmm

tumhare rooth jaane se
to dil bechain rehtaa hai
jo tumne ae
bewafaai kee
na jaane haal kyaa hoga

tumhare saath chal kar
pyaar ki manzil pe aaye hain
tumharaa haath thaame
pyaar ke saahil pe aaye hain
mohabbat ki fizaaon mein
to hamne tumko poojaa hai
tumharaa naam le kar
pyaar ki mehfil mein aaye hain
tumhare rooth jaane se
to dil bechain rehta hai
jo tumne
bewafaai kee
na jaane haal kyaa hoga

hamein itnaa yakeen hai
tum hum hi se pyaar karte ho
agar hum aah bharte hain
to tum bhi aahein bharte ho
tumhaare do thikaane hain
jahaan par tumko dekhaa hai ae
tumhaare do thikaane hain
jahaan par tumko dekhaa hai
kabhi aankhon mein rehte ho
kabhi dil se guzarte ho
tumhare rooth jaane se
to dil bechain rehtaa hai
jo tumne
bewafaai kee..eee
na jaane haal kyaa hogaa
laa laa laaa

ल ल ला
ल ल ल ल लल्लल ला
ल ल ल ल ल ला ला
ल ल ल ल ल ला ला
हम्मम हम्मम हम्ममममम

तुम्हारे रूठ जाने से
तो दिल बेचैन रहता है
जो तुमने बेवफाई की
तो जाने हाल क्या होगा

तुम्हारे साथ चल कर
प्यार की मंज़िल पे आए हैं
तुम्हारा हाथ थामे
प्यार के साहिल पे आए हैं
मोहब्बत की फिज़ाओं में
तो हमने तुमको पूजा है
तुम्हारा नाम ले कर
प्यार की महफिल में आए हैं
तुम्हारे रूठ जाने से
तो दिल बेचैन रहता है
जो तुमने बेवफाई की
तो जाने हाल क्या होगा

हमें इतना यकीं है
तुम हमी से प्यार करते हो’
अगर हम आह भरते हैं
तो तुम भी आहें भरते हो
तुम्हारे दो ठिकाने हैं
जहां पर तुमको देखा है
तुम्हारे दो ठिकाने हैं
जहां पर तुमको देखा है
कभी आँखों में रहते हो
कभी दिल से गुज़रते हो
तुम्हारे रूठ जाने से
तो दिल बेचैन रहता है
जो तुमने बेवफाई की
तो जाने हाल क्या होगा

ला ला ला॰॰॰
