Blog Day : 3526 Post No. : 14164

Today is 14 march 2018. It was on this day 87 years ago , viz 14 march 1931 that a movie that talked in Hindi (Hindustani) was shown for the first time in Bombay. I don’t think that people those days has any idea that it was an event that would change the lives of Indians as few things had done before. In fact, the industry that would get created as a result would go on to influence not just Indians, but non Indians as well. The Industry, now called Hindi film industry or Bollywood is a shining example of the soft power that India has gone on to wield.

I sometimes try to visualise how things were there in India on 14 march 1931. Very few modern day amenities that we take for granted today were available those days. Trains were there, electricity had arrived, and radio was invented a few years earlier. That was all. There were no telephones, no TV, no communication networks that we take for granted today. The fact that movies that talked may have been known to people in Bombay, but the news must have spread to other parts of the country rather slowly.

There were no dedicated movie halls to show films. That would come up subsequently and they would become important landmarks of the city.

Silent movies were already being produced and exhibited at that time in good number and there were many people (most people in fact) who may have felt that these talking movies was a passing fad that would die down and people would continue watching silent movies. In fact, silent movies continued to be made and exhibited till 1934. Talkies gradually gained acceptance at the cost of silent movies which finally stopped being made after 1934.

Coming to talkies, Hindustani movies were quickly followed by talkies in other major languages, and with time some of them would go on to become nearly as major and influential as the Hindustani movie industry. Ideas and personnel from one industry would find use in other language industries as well.

Movies evolved with time. Initially the stories were mythological/ religious/ fairy tales, then one found movies with social themes/ patriotic themes etc becoming popular. Stunt movies, that were considered low brow stuff, would become stuff of mainstream movies later. 🙂

Things have come a long way in 87 years. Now people are in an era where they can watch movies of their choices in the comfort of their homes, and what is more they can share these movies with others from the comforts of their homes !

On 14 march 1931, Movies were one of the very few sources of public recreation. Today there are plenty. 87 years onwards now, I am watching a T20 cricket match between India and Bangladesh played at Colombo, while located in North India. 87 years ago, there was no Bangladesh, no TV, no T20 cricket. 🙂

It is this distraction that has prevented me from posting more song posts today than what I would have liked. Nevertheless, now that there is innings break, I am utilising the opportunity to post this article, just the second article for today.

This song is from “Do Aadmi”(1960). It is sung by Geeta Dutt. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Posting of this song tonight is prompted by the fact that SN Tripathi, the music director of this song was born this day in 1913.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie, which was directed by Dwarka Khosla for Vikas Productions, Bombay, had Jairaj, Shashikala, Jeewankala, Kammo, Rammurthy, Eruch Tarapore, Lamanrao, Jagdish Kamal, Shiv Dutt, Sayyad, Daya Devi, Meera Parel etc in it. The song sounds like a bar dance song, that may have been picturised on one of the many ladies in the cast who fit the bill. Interestingly, I find that the five songs of this movie had five diffetrent female playback singers singing them ! So it is difficult to guess which playback singer sang for whom. I request our knowledgeable readers to help throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

The song itself is quite nice to listen to. It is just the song that one would love to listen to at night.

aa haaa

bheegi bheegi mehki mehki raat hai

bheegi bheegi mehki mehki raat hai
tera mera mera tera saath hai

aa ha ha ha

bheegi bheegi mehki mehki raat hai
tera mera mera tera saath hai

aa ha ha ha
aa ha ha ha
jhoom jhoom ke zara aankhen mila
jhoom jhoom ke zara aankhen mila
mil-jul ke koi gul to khila
baat ye ban gayi

bheegi bheegi mehki mehki raat hai
tera mera mera tera saath hai
aaj to meri jaan
keh bhi de
jo kehne waali baat hai
bheegi bheegi mehki mehki raat hai
tera mera mera tera saath hai

आ हा॰॰
लालालालाला
आहा
लालालाला

भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
तेरे मेरा मेरा तेरा साथ है
आज तो
मेरी जान
कह भी दे जो कहने वाली बात है
भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
तेरे मेरा मेरा तेरा साथ है

आ हा हा हा
आ हा हा हा
बार बार ये
मुलाकातें कहाँ
बार बार ये
मुलाकातें कहाँ
रोज़ रोज़ तो ऐसी रातें कहाँ
सुन भी ले
धड़कनें
मेरे दिल में तेरे दिल की बात है
भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
तेरे मेरा मेरा तेरा साथ है

आ हा हा हा
आ हा हा हा
झूम झूम के
ज़रा आँखें मिला
झूम झूम के
ज़रा आँखें मिला
मिल जुल के कोई गुल तो खिला
बात ये
बन गयी
तो ये सारी दुनिया अपने हाथ है
भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
तेरे मेरा मेरा तेरा साथ है
आज तो
मेरी जान
कह भी दे जो कहने वाली बात है
भीगी भीगी महकी महकी रात है
तेरे मेरा मेरा तेरा साथ है
