Hullo Atuldom

I know of two movies that go by the name ‘Duniya’. One was in 1968 which had Dev Anand and Vyjayantimala in the lead and the second ‘Duniya’ (1984) had Dev Anand’s contemporary Dilip Kumar with Ashok Kumar in central roles around which Rishi Kapoor and Amrita Singh’s characters were built.

The ‘Duniya’ that came in 1968 was directed by T Prakash Rao and had a lot of popular songs like “Dooriyan Nazdeekiyan”; “Falsafa Pyar Ka Tum Kya Jaano”; the fun song “Tu Hi Meri Laxmi Tu Hi Meri Chhaaya” etc. SH Bihari, Gopaldas ‘Neeraj’, Shailendra and Hasrat Jaipuri were the lyricists and Shankar-Jaikishan were the music directors.

On going through the blog, I found that one more ‘Duniya’ is listed, which released in 1948 and had C Ramchandra for composer. I don’t have any knowledge about this movie other than the fact that on this blog all the songs from this movie are covered. For that matter even the 1968 movie has all its songs on the blog.

So now that brings us to ‘Duniya’ which released in 1984. It was produced by Yash Johar of Dharma Productions and directed by Ramesh Talwar of ‘Baseraa’ and ‘Doosra Aadmi’ fame. Its story, screenplay & dialogues are credited to Javed Akhtar. It had an impressive cast headed by Ashok Kumar and Dilip Kumar (as I have said earlier) ably supported by their colleagues of the 1950s and 1960s viz: Pran, Pradeep Kumar, and Prem Chopra. Saira Banu made a special appearance, her sole release after she retired in 1976/77. (One of her movies with Vinod Mehra as co-star, completed in 1976 released in 1988.) ‘Duniya’ also had Amrish Puri to complete the trio who wreak havoc in the life of Mohan Kumar (Dilip Kumar) which leads to the family getting separated, wife dying etc.  This means that the movie belonged to the action/ drama/ revenge genre. This movie had RD Burman’s music for songs penned by Javed Akhtar.

There is a re-run by the satellite channel Zee Classic of it programme ‘Classic Legends with Javed Akhtar’ which is basically a guided biography of legends who gave Hindi film industry some iconic movies and music. I happened to see an episode of this where RD Burman’s music was showcased. In the course of the programme Javed Akhtar has mentioned a song from ‘Duniya’ (1984).

As we all know a song is made when poetry is set to tune in a manner that it can be sung. There are times when the reverse can also happen. A musician thinks of a tune and has a song written to go with it. Javed Akhtar spoke of a song where RD had a tune for which the mukhda (opening stanza) would end in a tune that follows the tune of “Tanhaayi Mein Tadpaane Ko” from SD Burman’s song “Jeewan Ke Safar Mein Raahi” from ‘Munim ji’ (1955).  He was telling it was almost as if RD was paying tribute to his father.

Today on RD’s 78th birth anniversary I think we should have this particular song. ‘Duniya’ was not that successful and I don’t think any of its songs are in public memory. Even I remembered it only when I heard Javed Akhtar mention it. Everytime a movie flops, it takes its music of the movie down with it. I think this is what happened to the songs of this film.

So here is the song which was written by Javed Akhtar for a tune set by RD Burman inspired by his father’s tune. It is sung by Kishore Kumar to Rishi Kapoor’s lip-syncing. We can also see Amrish Puri overseeing the actions of Rishi Kapoor and Javed Khan, the fellow who walks away with Amrita’s bag.

Song – Tu Chaand Nagar Ki Shehzaadi (Duniya) (1984) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – RD Burman

Lyrics

ho ho oo oo
o ho oo oo
lala la laala laa

tu chand nagar ki shehzaadi
main is dharti ka banjaara
tu chand nagar ki shehzaadi
main is dharti ka banjaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara
tu chand nagar ki shehzaadi
mai is dharti ka banjaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara

main ik hawa ka jhonka
tu phool hai
itna tujh ko chahoon
fuzool hai
main aaj yahaan aur kal hoon wahaan
tujhe apna gulshan hi pyaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara

tera mera do pal ka saath hai
sach hai ye sab kismat ki baat hai
har dil me yahaan tu hai mehman
main beghar bedar bechaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara

lab na hilen to aankho se kaam le
jaane waali mera salaam le
mere pichle janam ke bhale the karam
to mil jaoonga dobara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara
tu chand nagar ki shehzaadi
mai is dharti ka banjaara
tu mehlon mein rehne waali
main galiyon galiyon awaara

हो हो ओ ओ

तू चाँद नगर की शहज़ादी
मैं इस धरती का बंजारा
तू चाँद नगर की शहज़ादी
मैं इस धरती का बंजारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा
तू चाँद नगर की शहज़ादी
मैं इस धरती का बंजारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा

मैं इक हवा का झोंका
तू फूल है
इतना तुझको चाहूँ
फुज़ूल है
मैं आज यहाँ और कल हूँ वहाँ
तुझे अपना गुलशन है प्यारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा

तेरा मेरा दो पल का साथ है
सच हैं ये सब किस्मत की बात है
हर दिल में यहाँ तू है मेहमां
मैं बेघर बेदर बेचारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा

लब ना हिलें तो आँखों से काम ले
जाने वाली मेरा सलाम ले
मेरे पिछले जनम के भले थे करम
तो मिल जाऊंगा दोबारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा
तू चाँद नगर की शहज़ादी
मैं इस धरती का बंजारा
तू महलों में रहने वाली
मैं गलियों गलियों बंजारा
