Sureeli Suman – 27
—————————–
After a long long time’ for various reasons, (that nobody will be interested to know) I am able to present this song today to congratulate our dear Suman Kalyanpur on her Birth-Day. We all wish that the Almighty may grant her a long healthy and prosperous life.

Seventeen songs were presented by me in the ‘Sureeli Suman’ series and this will be the eighteenth gem of her Non-Film Songs.

In mid sixties, Rock Hudson & Gina lollobrigida made a world famous hit song ‘Come September’ and the tune was very popular in India too. This song is a complete copy of one of the instrumental themes of ‘Come September’ (1961).

The same theme was used by MD Nadeem-Shravan in the Film “Raja” (1995) . The song was “Nazaren Mili Dil Dhadka”.

This is not the only song Suman Kalyanpur sang based on rock music. In Film ‘Rocket Tarzan’ (1963), she has beautifully rendered “Ya Rabba Rabba Ho” based on a instrumental theme ‘Berlin Melody’ (1962). Lyrics were written by Yogesh Gaud which were set to music by Robin Banerjee.

The next presentation, Hari Ichchha permitting, will be another NFS sung by Suman Kalyanpur based ‘Berlin Melody’ (1962). The song is ‘Dil dhak dhak dhak dhak dhadke’.

My feeling is that this song and the song which I am covering today, may have been on the two sides of the same 78 RPM record. The up-loader of the video has credited Shankar-Jaikishan as MD and Harindranath Chattopadhyay as Lyricist, which I am doubtful.


Song–Rimjhim Rimjhim Rimjhim Lo Barse Moti Ke Daane (Suman Kalyanpur NFS) (1969) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – [Unattributed], Music – [Unattributed]
[Ed Note: The original western melody of ‘Come September’ composed by Hans J Salter, and played by Billy Vaughn as the lead guitarist, is adapted and arranged for this song released on an EP in 1969. The music arrangement for this particular recording is variously attributed to Shankar Jaikishan and Usha Khanna. The Lyrics have also been variously attributed to Harindranath Chattopadhyay and Shailendra. None of this information has been confirmed.]

rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane
aisi shaam jo aaye
bulaaye kisko
dil kya chaahe
mera dilbar jaane
aisi shaam jo aaye
bulaaye kisko
dil kya chaahe
mera dilbar jaane

uthhe chupke chupke aaj
koi toofaan
mere armaan huye deewaane
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane

ye barsaat ki bheegi raat
dilaaaye teri yaaaden
tere wo afsaane
ye barsaat ki bheegi raat
dilaaaye teri yaaaden
tere wo afsaane
jahaan bhi ho aa jaao aaj
ke ae dildaar
tumhaara pyaar
laga tadpaane
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane

kaisi aag lagaaye
jalaaye bairan
aayi barkha saari raat jagaane
kaisi aag lagaaye
jalaaye bairan
aayi barkha saari raat jagaane
dil ko phir soojhi taqraar
wohi is raat
gayi main haar
ye ab na maane
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane
rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim
lo barse moti ke daane
bikhre khazaane

रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने
रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने

ऐसी शाम जो आए
बुलाये किसको
दिल क्या चाहे
मेरा दिलबर जाने
ऐसी शाम जो आए
बुलाये किसको
दिल क्या चाहे
मेरा दिलबर जाने
उठे चुपके चुपके आज
कोई तूफान
मेरे अरमान हुये दीवाने
रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने

ये बरसात की भीगी रात
दिलाये तेरी यादें
तेरे वो अफसाने
ये बरसात की भीगी रात
दिलाये तेरी यादें
तेरे वो अफसाने
जहां भी हो आ जाओ आज
के ए दिलदार
तुम्हारा प्यार लगा तड़पाने
रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने

कैसी आग लगाए
जलाए बैरन
आई बरखा सारी रात जगाने
कैसी आग लगाए
जलाए बैरन
आई बरखा सारी रात जगाने
दिल को फिर सूझी तकरार
वही इस रात
गई मैं हार
ये अब ना माने
रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने
रिमझिम रिमझिम रिमझिम
लो बरसें मोती के दाने
बिखरे ख़ज़ाने

Dole Dole Dil from Baazi (1995) had also copied the same tune.

Yes Mr Bharat Upadhyay, you are correct. Both the songs of Suman Kalyanpur “rimjhim rimjhim rimjhim lo barse (Come September)” and “Dil Dhak Dhak Dhak Dhak Dhadke (Berln Melody)” were on the two sides of the the same Gramophone Record. They were sort of parodies for extremely popular Western songs of early Sixties, when we were in college. Obviously, Shankar Jaikishan was in no way related to the music of those songs.
In fact the particular Record was purchased by mistake by our film society volunteers for playing before the movie shows in our Hostel, when they had gone to purchase the original songs of Come September & Berlin Melody. Later on realizing their mistake, they exchanged those Records with the original ones.

Thanks Bimalbhai, for supporting my hunch about the 78 RPM. During the same period Shankar Jaikishan did come out with an album based on Rock& Roll music. (There was one Rafi song in English) That gave me some doubt that this Suman’s song may have been arranged by SJ.

Dear Bharat Bhai,

Thanks for bringing up this lost memory. A very lovely favourite from the radio listening days.
🙂
