“Asen mi nasen mi. . . whether I’m there or not, I’ll be there forever.”
[Title of her biography, a quote by her own self, in a conversation with her biographer, Lalita Tamhane.]

She was just into 55th year when she passed away in 1991. Continuing to be active, even after having managed to get past an initial scare of cancer, the remission succeeded to claim her, much to the loss of the entire industry, and its heritage.

Remembering Nutan, on the anniversary of her passing away, today (21st February).

Starting her career at the age of 14 (‘Hamaari Beti’, 1950), she worked through the next four decades – as string of memorable roles that span the entire spectrum of emotions across from tragedy all the way to comedy. The understated emotions are conveyed through the eyes and expressions, much more powerfully than words. The Kalyani of ‘Bandini’ (1963), expressing her anger and turmoil, through actually saying and expressing very little, heightened the portrayal of a mute victim, who is driven by circumstances to murder. And then she lives out her internment, with the same silence and withdrawal; in the end, returning to her past, forsaking a promise of happiness and acceptance in a new world. Nutan remains in memory as the quintessential Kalyani, all the way from Gauri in ‘Seema’ (1956) and Sujata in ‘Sujata’ (1959), up to Anu Rai in ‘Anuraag’ (1972), living through the tragic last few months of the life of her only child; as Mahjubi in ‘Suadaagar’ (1973), betrayed with promises of false love and usurpation; and as Sanyukta in ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’ (1978), facing the ignominy of having a competitor for the affections of her own husband, come to live under the same roof.

But when given the opportunity to get into light comic roles – Shanti in ‘Paying Guest’ (1957), Jameela in ‘Dil Hi To Hai’, and Sulekha in ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963) – another facet of her character comes through that seems unbelievable in the face of her image of the victimized woman having all the troubles and miseries foisted upon her. Oh how I wish the film ‘Chhabili’ (1960) was available; would have loved to see her role as a chhabili.

An unforgettable performer, who garnered a record six Filmfare awards (five as the leading lady, and one in supporting role); a record that stood for well over three decades. Into her forties, she still commanded leading roles contrary to the traditions of the industry. And into her fifties, she was still chiselled and stunning, continuing to command author backed roles in the films she appeared in.

The song for today is from the 1970 film ‘Maa Aur Mamta’. The film is produced under the banner of Suchitra Kala Mandir, and is directed by Asit Sen. The star cast is listed as Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Jitendra, Mumtaz, Rehman, Jayant, Nirupa Roy, Sujeet Kumar, Roopesh Kumar, Shabnam, Shivraj, Beerbal, Leela Mishra, Brahm Bhardwaj, Keshto Mukherjee, Karan Diwan, Paro, Bilkis, Dilip Dutt, Machchar, Madhu Apte. A social drama that has six songs written by Sarshaar Sailaani and Anand Bakshi, and are tuned to music by Laxmikant Pyaarelal. This song is written by Anand Bakshi. On screen, the song is performed by Nutan, as she is accompanied by Sujeet Kumar.

Three songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. This is the fourth song to find its place here. The lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakashchandra ji.

It is terrible that she went away so young – depriving us of what could have been possible. But then maybe it is good for whatever transpired – the memories are as elegant and as preserved, as was she herself, into her fifties. Her biography records an episode from when she was an infant. As a baby, she would go into bouts of crying that lasted for many hours. All the medical consultation and advise could not locate any problems. Then, one astrologer read her horoscope and said that she is a delivered soul who has come back into this world quite unwillingly. The prophecy played itself out, when she decided to leave so early.

o re maanjhi
o mere maanjhi
. . . abki baar
le chal paar
le chal paar

Song – Baat Ye Anokhi Mere Meet Ho Gayi  (Maa Aur Mamta) (1970) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

 

Lyrics (Provided by Prakash Chandra)

baat ye anokhi mere meet ho gayee
raat din dhadknaa dil ki reet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
baat ye anokhi mere meet ho gayee
raat din dhadknaa dil ki reet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee

laaj ka pehraa
maine
ho o o mann ke dwaar bithaayaa
laaj ka pehraa
maine
ho o o mann ke dwaar bithaaya
is ghoonghat mein
aise
ho o mukhda laakh chhupaayaa
haayye rey barjori
nindiyaa ho gayee chori
ho o haar gayee main
saiyyaan teri jeet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
baat ye anokhi mere meet ho gayee
raat din dhadknaa dil ki reet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee

teri  najariyaa
sajnaa
ho o o mere sapnon ki doli
teri najariyaa
sajnaa
ho o o mere sapnon ki doli
baith main iss mein
chal dee
ho o tere sang  humjoli
rokey jag naa maanoon
kaaran main na jaanoon
ho o log kehte hain mohey preet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
baat ye anokhi mere meet ho gayee
raat din dhadknaa dil ki reet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey preet ho gayee
ho raamaa kaahe rey mohey
kaahe rey mohey
preet ho gayee

बात ये अनोखी मेरे मीत हो गई
रात दिन धड़कना दिल की रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
बात ये अनोखी मेरे मीत हो गई
रात दिन धड़कना दिल की रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई

लाज का पहरा
मैंने
हो ओ ओ मन के द्वार बिठाया
लाज का पहरा
मैंने
हो ओ ओ मन के द्वार बिठाया
इस घूँघट में
ऐसे
हो ओ मुखड़ा लाख छुपाया
हाये रे बरजोरी
निंदिया हो गई चोरी
हो ओ हार गई मैं
सैंयां तेरी जीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
बात ये अनोखी मेरे मीत हो गई
रात दिन धड़कना दिल की रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई

तेरी नजरिया
साजना
हो ओ ओ मेरे सपनों की डोली
बैठ मैं इस में
चल दी
हो ओ ओ तेरे संग हमजोली
रोके जग ना मानूँ
कारण मैं ना जानूँ
हो ओ लोग कहते हैं मोहे प्रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
बात ये अनोखी मेरे मीत हो गई
रात दिन धड़कना दिल की रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे प्रीत हो गई
हो रामा काहे रे मोहे

काहे रे मोहे

प्रीत हो गई
