The film ‘Sushila’ of 1966 – and a peculiar turn of events as we tried to ‘Yippeee’ this film, earlier on 26th January. And then there is another very interesting quirk related with this post and this Yippeee action today.

After having done our due diligence and concluding that about 10 days back, we were ready to Yippeee this film, I was preparing the post for the song “Satyamev Jayate”, the then final pending song of this film. It is a nationalistic song, and I was working to publish this song on 26th Jan, and also do the honors of Yippeee-ing this film.

Just a chance examination of the folder of the songs of this film in my collection, and I was surprised to see that there is an extra song sitting in there. A little surprised, I started checking for more information. After some back and forth across the pages of Geet Kosh itself, I was able to locate the information. Actually, this song is listed in the corrigenda (appendix of corrections) of the volume IV, as an addition to the list of songs of this film. And so, we established that the film ‘Sushila’ actually has seven songs and not six. So the plans for that day were changed. A different film was Yippeee’d that day. And now, today is the turn of this film to join the band of Yippeee’d films.

As we take a look the list of songs of this film, I must say that it is a very impressive list of some very wonderful songs. Check out the list of songs posted so far.

 

Gham Ki Andheri Raat Mein Sushila 2552 22-Jun-10
Bemurawwat Bewafaa Sushila 3755 9-Apr-11
Bahut Khoobsoorat Hain Aankhen Tumhaaree Sushila 5216 29-Dec-11
Nazar Nawaaz Nazaaron Mein Kho Gaya Hoon Main Sushila 5274 9-Jan-12
Gori Milna Ho Milna Re Nadiya Ke Paar Sushila 6539 29-Aug-12
Satyamev Jayate Satyamev Jayate Sushila 13978 26-Jan-18

 

Each one of the above listed songs is a wonderful gem. And so is the final addition to this list, being uploaded and posted today. This song was hitherto not available online. Well let me correct that. The song is available on YouTube, albeit as a part of the 4th Nov, 2017 edition of Bhoole Bisre Geet broadcast on AIR FM Gold, which is a special program honoring the music director C Arjun.

The song is sung by Asha Bhosle. Lyrics are from the pen of Indeewar. It is a very poignant mother-child song. It could have been a lorie, a lullaby in the film, but I cannot be sure. I request our more knowledgeable readers to kindly add more information about the on screen performance of this song, and also about the film itself.

Now let me add one more very peculiar twist to this scenario. Based on information in the footnotes, it seems that the film ‘Sushila’ was possibly re-released with a different title, at a later point in time. There is a film from 1977, listed in the Geet Kosh – titled ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’. As we compare the information entries for these two films, we find that the list of songs is identical. The information about singers of individual songs, the names of the lyricists, and the name of music director, are also identical.

The other item of information that is identical is the name of the director of the films. Interestingly enough the production banner is different. ‘Sushila’ is released under the banner of Shri Vinayak Chitra of Bombay, whereas ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ is released under the banner of Shri Devo Films, Karnataka. The cast of actors, which is listed only for the latter film, reads like Kumar, Ram Kumar, Harman, Sheila, Lal Bahadur, Ranjeet Budhkar, Shivaji Jadhav, Ashu, Mahesh Raj, Prabhakar, Moolchand, Sandeep, Uma Khosla, Jeet, Dubey, Sinha, Firoza, K Raghunath, Krishan Duggal, Shobha, Dilip Dutt, Chhotu Sawant, Chandrakant, S Jairaj, Surekha Naik, Inderkumar Bhatia, Prakash Inamdar, Ramdas Padhey, Shabana, and Nayan Tara.

So now I have a poser specifically for Atul ji. As per the Geet Kosh information, it is a possibility that these two films are actually the same. Looking at the list of songs, well they are identical. And yet, being released separately under different production banners, and also being titled differently – are these two films?

So then, is it the case that we have the most peculiar and a most unique circumstance, wherein we are Yippeee’ing two films – at the same time. Wo wo. . . this is going to be a first, and probably the last such occasion where we are able to Yippeee two films that are distinctly and separately listed in the Geet Kosh. Most interesting circumstance. If yes, then this post has to be marked as a very unique post indeed.

What say Atul ji, – shall we Yippeee two films with this one post, today. 🙂

Song – Mere Aanchal Ka Diya  (Sushila) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – C Arjun

Lyrics

mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya

mere jaisa koi duniya mein hi
khushaal kahaan
oo ooo oooo
mere jaisa koi duniya mein hi
khushaal kahaan
tere jaisa hai mera laal
main kangaal kahaan
main kangaal kahaan
mere anmol rattan ae
mere badhte huye dhan
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon
mere aanchal ka diya

tere kaajal ki lakeeron mein hai
taqdeer meri
oo ooo oooo
tere kaajal ki lakeeron mein hai
taqdeer meri
teri soorat mein nazar aati hai
tasveeer meri
haaye
tasveeer meri
mere aangan ki kali ae
mere jeevan ki lagan
tere badle mein agar chaand miley
to bhi na loon

mere aanchal ka diya tu
meri aankhon ki kiran
. . .

मेरे आँचल का दिया तू
मेरी आँखों की किरण
तेरे बदले में अगर चाँद मिले
तो भी ना लूँ
मेरे आँचल का दिया तू
मेरी आँखों की किरण
तेरे बदले में अगर चाँद मिले
तो भी ना लूँ
मेरे आँचल का दिया

मेरे जैसा कोई दुनिया में ही
खुशहाल कहाँ
ओ ओ ओ
मेरे जैसा कोई दुनिया में ही
खुशहाल कहाँ
तेरे जैसा है मेरा लाल
मैं कंगाल कहाँ
मैं कंगाल कहाँ
मेरे अनमोल रतन ए
मेरे बढ़ते हुये धन
तेरे बदले में अगर चाँद मिले
तो भी ना लूँ
मेरे आँचल का दिया

तेरे काजल की लकीरों में है
तक़दीर मेरी
ओ ओ ओ
तेरे काजल की लकीरों में है
तक़दीर मेरी
तेरी सूरत में नज़र आती है
तस्वीर मेरी
हाए
तस्वीर मेरी
मेरे आँगन की कली ए
मेरे जीवन की लगन
तेरे बदले में अगर चाँद मिले
तो भी ना लूँ
मेरे आँचल का दिया तू
मेरी आँखों की किरण

Atul ji, Sudhir ji – Congratulations on this ‘unique’ ‘Yippeeee …!!!

Sudhir ji, Atul ji,

I found the following information in the book ” Rahe na rahe Hum ” by Shantaram Mankikar….

” His film Susheela-1966,which was incomplete,was completed and released as Subah zaroor Aayegi in 1977 in which ‘bemurawwat bewafa’ song sung by Mubarak Begum and ‘gham ki andheri raat mein’ sung by Talat and Rafi became very popular. ”

From the above, it can be concluded that it was just one film and not two different films.

-AD

Arun ji,

Thanks for this specific information. One query. When you say ‘His film Susheela. . .’, who is the person being referred.

Sudhir

This excerpt is from an article on C.Arjun, the composer. The reference is to him only. I only took what was relevant here.

Dear Arun ji

Thanks for the clarification. Yes, this specific information is the most important clarification regarding these ‘twin’ films.
