“Anmol Ratan”(1950) was directed by M Sadiq for Jaimini Dewan Productions, Bombay. The movie had Meena (Shorey ?), Karan Dewan, Gope, Gulab, Madan Puri, Nirmala etc in it. The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the tenth song from “Anmol Ratan”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Nirmala devi. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Vinod.

Only the audio of the song is available. Nirmala devi(mother of Govinda) appeared in the movie so it can be assumed that the song was picturised on her. Moreover, the lyrics suggest that it was a mujra song. So it is a mujra song picturised on Nirmala devi


Song-Koi kah do balamwa se ut nahin jaaye(Anmol Ratan)(1950) Singer-Nirmala devi, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Vinod

Lyrics

koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
jit jaayike more tan aag lagaaye
jit jaayike haan jit jaayike
ho jit jaayike
more tan aag lagaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

daaman mere mein daal na duniya ki daulaten aen
haan
de daulaten unhen
jo inhen pa ke khush rahen
apni to maang ek hai
bolo to hum kahen
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye haaye
maangoon main sainya ji ka pyaar mil jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
jit jaayike more tan aag lagaaye
jit jaayike haan jit jaayike
ho jit jaayike
more tan aag lagaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

meri bala se abr ho saawan ki jhadi ho o o
haan aan
shabnam ke motiyon mein kali jhoom rahi ho
meri nazar ke saamne nazaara wahi ho
naynon mein nayna daal piya muskaaye haaye
nayno mein nayna daal piya muskaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do balmva se ut nahin jaaye
koi kah do

“Director”(1947) was a “social” movie which was directed by S Shafaqat, M A for Dawn Films, Punjab. This by now obscure movie had Salim, Raza, Zeb Qureshi, Zahoor, Aarif, Mohini Das, Iqbal Sheikh, Hafeez etc in it.

This rare movie had nine rare songs in it. It is known that the movie had two lyricists (Tufail Hoshiyarpuri, Aziz Kashmiri) and two music directors (Fateh ali Khan and Pt Lachchiram). HFGK is silent about the singers of the song.

Mr Girdharilal Vishwakarma, a renowned record collector, has recently uploaded a song from this movie. According to him, this song is sung by Zeenat Begam and it is composed by Fateh Ali Khan. The lyricist is not known.

I have not been able to get one (may be more) word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

With this song, “Director”(1947) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Sundar sundar taaron (Director)(1947) Singer-Zeenat Begum, MD-Fateh Ali Khan

Lyrics

Sundar sundar taaron

“Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) was Directed by Durgesh Kumar and Santoshi for Durgesh Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kumkum, Kamaljeet, Mumtaz, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Mohan Choti, Murad, aruna Irani, Johny Whisky, Kamal Mehra, Parshuram, Mirza Musharraf, Tuntun, Balam, Kathana, Jerry, Jankidas, Baroon Van Hizi, Kingkong etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it and most were qawwaalis as can be guessed from the title. Ten songs from the movie have been covered in the blog.

The eleventh and final song from the movie was apparently not included in the movie. Only its audio was released and this song is available.

Despite the song being available, I was not taking it up because this song was a duet with Rafi’s voice in it. Seeing that Sudhir jee was covering Rafi duets in his marathon series “Rafi duets अ से ह तक “, I was not taking chances because in the past I have posted songs that Sudhir Jee had reserved for some special occasions and with my memory being what it is, I had forgotten about that.

So, I double checked. Sudhir Jee is now onto the letter य while this duet from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) begins with an earlier letter viz प which was already covered in the previous post. So this song was “safe” to be covered. 🙂

So, here is the eleventh and final song from “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Iqbal Qureshi.

Here are the details of the earlier ten songs from the movie:-

This song, the eleventh and final song was excluded from the movie as far as I can tell. In case it was picturised, it would have been on the lead pair of Kamaljeet and Kumkum.

With this song,all the songs of “Qawwaali Ki Raat”(1964) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
PS-It has pointed out by Mr Sadanand Kamath that the video of this song is available. And the song is indeed picturised on the lead pair.

Song-Pyaar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin (Qawwaali Ki Raat)(1964) Singer-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Iqbal Qureshi

Lyrics

pyaar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin
pyar ki hasraten khaaq mein mil gayin
do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye
do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye
zindagi aag banti hai jis mod par
zindagi aag banti hai jis mod par
donon raahi usi mod par jal gaye

do kadam chalke do humsafar jal gaye

aisi bijli giri shaakh gulzaar par
aashiyaana bachaaya to par jal gaye
aashiyaana bachaaya to par jal gaye

kuchh na baaqi raha zindagi mein meri
kuchh na baaqi raha zindagi mein meri
ek dhuaan reh gaya dil jigar jal gaye
do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye

aah roki to seene se shole uthhe
ban gaye ashq aankhon mein chingaariyaan
ban gaye ashq aankhon mein chingariyaan
do mohabbat bhare dil sulagne lage
yaani do aarzuon ke ghar jal gaye

do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye

ashqe gham chashme nam se ye keh kar dhale
ashqe gham chashme nam se ye keh kar dhale
pyaar ki aag mein yoon na koi jale
pyaar ki aag mein yoon na koi jale
aatishe ishq mein koi shola nahin
aatishe ishq mein koi shola nahin
phir bhi is aag mein ghar ke ghar jal gaye

do kadam chal ke do humsafar jal gaye
donon raahi usi mod par jal gaye

“Aabshaar”(1953) was produced and directed by Hasrat Lucknowi for Globe Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nimmi, Ashok Kumar, Rajkumar, Shyama, Nigar Sultana, Om Prakash, Lalita Pawar, Kuldip, Tiwari, Shyam Lal, Iftikhar, Neelam, Chandni, Leela Pandey etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it which were penned by three lyricists and composed by three music directors, with five singers lending their voices in these songs.

Two songs from this movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the next song from the movie to appear in the blog. According to HFGK, this song is a multiple version song. One version is sung by Lata and another version by Rajkumari. Sarshar Sailaani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bhola Shreshtha.

Only Lata version of the song is available and it is a lovely song to listen to. I am sure Rajkumari version would sound just as sweet whe we can locate that.

Only the audio of the son is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Mujhko hai tujhse pyaar kyun (Aabshaar)(1953)Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sarshar Sailaani, MD-Bhola Shreshtha

8th November, this year (2018) was bang in the middle of the festivities connected with the big Indian festival of lights Deepawali, which is said to symbolize Rama’s return to Ayodhya after completing the stipulated 14 years of exile. It is said that since the day he returned was the day of Amavasya whole of Ayodhya was lit up to pave the way for the Lord. Another belief is that it marks the vanquishing of the demon Narkasura by goddess Kali and so one of the five days of festivities is called “Kali Chaudas” or “Narka Chaturdashi”.

Whatever the belief it is a five day long festival of lights and joy and celebrations in most parts of India. So here is wishing the Atulsongaday followers or Atulites as I like to call the followers a Happy Deepawali and Prosperous New Year. Some parts of the country will be celebrating “Bhai Dooj” or “Bhau Beej” on 9 November. Happy Bhai Dooj too.

The spirit of the festival is such that I found that the blog has been getting one-song-per-day for a few days now. I myself visited the blog after 3 days today. But the festival was not the only reason for my absence, my all-time favourite grudge about Bangalore had also played a part for my absence.

In fact I heard the Vividh Bharati too after quite some days and it was playing all songs of Usha Uthup in the 9:30 p.m. program. On googling I realized that it was Usha Uthup’s birthday on 8 november 2018.

She has turned 71, time has really flown since she was first sang under RD Burman’s baton in the 1971 for “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” and followed it up with “Bombay to Goa” in which she also made an appearance on-screen. She has an unusual voice which is normally not used for the female lead but more for dance numbers. But our legs move automatically to songs sung by her whether it is “one two cha cha cha”; “hari om hari”; “rambha ho”; “doston se pyar kiya”; “pyar karna toh zaroori hai”; or “I love you, kya kushi hai kya hai gham”. I find that the stats page shows that we have “6” songs of Usha on the blog (I could locate only 3). That is surprising considering that many of her songs were popular and still are popular.

The song with this post is another such song. It is from the 1978 released Krishna Shah directed multi star-casted “Shalimar”. The songs were written by Anand Bakshi and music was R. D. Burman’s. Shalimar’s LP contains 10 songs of which 3 were instrumental, one was a multi-version song. we have three songs from the movie on the blog, here is the next. It is a song which is filmed in a dance school where Aruna Irani is shown giving training for “Cha Cha Cha”. There is also a gambling den attached to the school where we see a sardar (Premnath) squandering his wealth, suffering a heart attack and being assisted by Dharamendra. It is from here that the story of the movie begins.

Today’s song is from the first decade of the Talkie films, viz 1930s. This song is from “Hum,Tum aur Woh”(1938). This was a film made under the banner of Sagar Movietone, a highly prestigious and famous film company of the times. This company was riding on waves of popularity and fame during those days of 1938.

Shri Biren kothari ji has written a wonderful book on Sagar Movietone. It is based on interactions with the surviving members of the Desai clan as well as several contemporary documents and is regarded as an authentic volume on Sagar Movietone. However, oday’s article is based on another book, “Mehboob Khan” written by Shashikant Kinikar, published in 2015, 2 years after Kothari ji’s book. This 300+ page book, in Marathi, has plenty of original photos and articles on Mehboob Khan written by Anil Biswas, Sitara Devi, Shamshad Begum, P.K.Nair, Wazahat Mirza, Naushad and Shakeel Badayuni and therefore it is full of several anecdotes which are unknown to many. The book also contains 4 articles by Mehboob Khan himself. The book is an excellent treatise on Mehboob Khan-the Director and the Human Being, with 230 pages dedicated on him and his films.

However, Mehboob’s story is incomplete without Sagar’s story.

Hindi film industry has produced some great directors who, besides having a commercial outlook, also served the society by making films on burning social issues. On their parts, they contributed their “Two Cents” to serve the Nation. Such directors included Raj Kapoor, V.Shantaram, Guru Dutt, Satyajit Ray and Mehboob Khan-to name a few.

Born as Ramzan Khan in 1907 in Bilimora, Gujarat, Mehboob was from a Gujarati Muslim family. He never got a formal education in his young age, but he was keen on two things-5 times Namaz and seeing films. His father being in Police Department, films were free for him. One day he ran away to Bombay to become an actor. However his father found him out and brought him back. He was immediately married off, with a belief that he would improve.

Two years after marriage and one child, he ran to Bombay again and worked in Imperial film co. as an extra for Rs.30 pm. This too after he worked without any pay for 5 months due to the mistake of the clerk ! He worked in crowd scenes and sundry roles-without a dialogue, of course, starting as one of the 40 thieves of Alibaba. He worked in several films uncredited. His first, big and credited role came in the film “Shirin Khushru”-1929.

In 1927, after the Talkie film “The Jazz Singer” was shown in US, the world started making Talkie films. India too jumped into the bandwagon. In 1931, Imperial-competing with Madon Theatres of Calcutta- wanted to make a Talkie and started work fast. Mehboob Khan was almost finalised as the Hero. Even his costumes were made ready, but he was destined for something different, and Master Vithal was made the Hero of India’s first Talkie. Ardeshir Irani’s safety valve of minimizing the risk of the first venture by selecting the existing popular Hero, scuttled Mehboob’s dream.

Meanwhile, Imperial started a new company,’Sagar Movietone’, along with Dr. Patel and Chiman Desai. Some artistes and techies were shifted to Sagar-including Mehboob- from Imperial. Mehboob continued to work in 12 silent films. Here, he met Faredoon Irani, Cinematographer and they became thick friends. Irani was with Mehboob till the end.

During this period, Mehboob wrote a film story and convinced the owners to allow him to direct this film. Owners were hesitant, naturally, to allow this young extra actor to direct a film. Lastly a deal was struck, that Mehboob and Faredoon should be allowed to shoot one reel film. If they like it, continue or else, scrap it and recover money from these two chaps. After one reel shooting the owners realised that they had struck Gold in the process and Mehboob completed his first Directorial venture ” Al Hilaal “-35. The film was a great success and Mehboob ‘chal pada’. Mehboob went on to direct 7 more films for Sagar. All his films were successful.

From film Jageerdar-37 Mehboob and Anil Biswas pair teamed up for 8 films-till Roti-42.

When Mehboob was making arrangements for his next film, Alibaba, the sudden news that Sagar is closing down hit them. Mehboob Khan contacted Imperial to allow him to shoot for his film in their studio, which Ardeshir gladly permitted. The film shooting proceeded til Sagar became National studios. Mehboob made 3 important films of his career in National studio, namely Aurat-40, Behan-41 and Roti-42.

When National studio also closed down all workers came on road. However, Mehboob decided to start his own company. One Mr. Lalaji of Manoranjan Distributors of Delhi promised capital. National studio was renamed as Central studio by the owner, K.K.Modi-elder brother of Sohrab Modi. He allowed Mehboob to use the studio till his own studio came up. Mehboob took a place nearby to start his office. In this period there was a rift between Mehboob and Anil Biswas and they separated for ever-albeit bitterly.

Mehboob wanted a Logo for Mehboob Productions. He selected a sher written by Agha Jani kashmiri for film “Al Hilal”….” Muddai lakh bura chahe to kya hota hai, vahi hota hai jo manjur e Khuda hota hai”. It was recorded in the voice of Rafiq Ghaznavi with appropriate prelude music and sound of lightening and clouds. He also took Sickle and Hammer for the Logo, and clarified that because he respected workers and certainly he was not a communist.

His first film Najma-43 ( his daughter’s name was Najma), with Ashok Kumar and Veena was a Hit film. It was followed by Taqdeer-43, Humayun-45,Anmol Ghadi-46, Elaan-47, Anokhi Ada-48, Andaaz-49, Aan-52, Amar-54 and his Magnum Opus Mother India-57. After the high of Mother India, Mehboob aimed to fly even higher with Son of India (1962) but the film was a total misfire and, in fact, his weakest film. Mehboob had been neglecting health inspite of suffering Heart attacks. In May 1964, he suffered another attack but survived. His financiers were after him for repayment and he was worried. He called Rajendra Kumar and asked for a loan of 4 lakh rupees against his studio to be made in his name. Rajendrakumar refused to take the studio and promised to give him the amount next day at 11 am, without any mortgage. In the evening, news of Nehru’s heart attack came. Mehboob became restless. Soon the death news came and Mehboob became grief stricken. Akhtar gave him sleeping pills, but he had to be admitted to Nanavati Hospital. He too died at 2 am on 28th May 1964. At the time of his death, Mehboob Khan was harboring ambitions to make a film on the life of Habba Khatoon, the 16th century poetess-queen of Kashmir.

Mehboob Khan directed 8 films for Sagar, 3 films for National and 11 films for Mehboob productions.( based on information from Upperstall, Mehboob Khan by Shashikant Kinikar and my notes).

One advantage of reading a Biography is that you get to know the person’s version on controversies. As far as Mehboob and Anil Biswas’s split is concerned, Mehboob’s version is 180 degrees opposite to what Anil Biswas gave. Difficult to side anyone. But this split did help first Rafiq Ghaznavi and then Naushad.

In the cast of the film, one finds a name Sunalini Devi. Now let us know something about Sunalini Devi, the actress. She was born on 1-1-1896 in Hyderabad Deccan. Her father, Aghornath Chattopadhyay-a Bengali settled in Hyderabad – was a Sanskrit scholar, was proficient in 27 languages and was the first Indian to get the D.Sc. honour. Sunalini was the elder sister of Sarojini, who became Sarojini Naidu after her marriage, and Harindranath Chattopadhyaya-renowned poet.

Sunalini learnt Music and Dance from her third year of age itself. Due to her sweet voice, she was called ‘ Kokila ‘. It is to be noted that her younger sister Saojini naidu was called ‘ Nightingale of India’ ! It is unfortunate that the film industry did not use Sunalini’s music skill in her films and she sang just one song in her career in film ‘ Raja Rani-42’.

Sunalini started acting in stage dramas from 1918. her first movie was ” Light of Asia”-released initially in Germany and Poland in 1925 ( its restored version was released on 5th July 2001, in India. This film was made by Himanshu Rai. The film was shot in Lahore. It was a silent film on Gautama the Buddha. Her first Talkie film was ‘ veer Kunal-32’. She acted in 56 films. Mostly she was known for motherly roles only. She had, like her more eminent sister, married a south Indian- mr.A.S.Rajan, a writer from Madras.

Some of her more known films are, Aurat, Lalaji, Inkaar, Nai roshni, Talaash, Bairam khan, Tamasha, Dilruba, Malhar etc etc. She retired from films in 1956.

Let us now listen to the song of today. It is sung by Maya Banerjee and Harish. The music was by Anil Biswas. I find the tune of this song a little unusual. It looks like the lady is stressing her point with fists hammered on a desk.

With this song, this film “Hum Tum aur Woh” (1938) makes its Debut in the Blog.


Song-Hamen preet kisi se nahin karni (Ham Tum Aur Wo)(1938) Singers-Maya Banerjee, Harish, MD-Anil Biswas

Blog Day : 3764 Post No. : 14737

Today (7 november 2018) is Deewaali, the festival of lights. It is the biggest festival in India, and it has kept on becoming bigger and bigger with time.

For the blog, it happens to be our eleventh Deewaali. Unblievable but true that this blog has lasted this long and has in fact gone on to evolve and progress as well.

We have discussed all the well known Deewaali festival songs during the previous ten occasions. The aricles accompanying these songs may have covered the festival from several angles. Some articles have dscussed the history of the festival, while others may have touched its financial worth.

In my discussion the last year, I had opined that our worship of Goddess Laxmi can succeed only if we have worshipped Goddess Saraswarti and Lord Viswwakarma, whose festivals come earlier in the year. By worship, I meant not the symbolic worship but following the spirit behind the worship.

For instance, worshipping Goddess Saraswati means acquiring quality education and skills, and business knowhow, while worshipping Lord Vishwakarma means putting all that acquired education, skill and knowedge to use into providing quality goods and services that can be traded. These commercial activities bring you money, viz Laxmi, and that too without necessarily worshippng her symbolically during Deewaali festival. Look at the prosperous nations of the West and far east. They worship Goddess Saraswati the right way (stressing on high quality education) and worship Lord Vishwakarma (creating vast industrial infrastructure). Little wonder then that they are blessed by Goddess Laxmi throughout the year, and not just on the occasion of Deewaali.

A good number of Indians on the other hand are scarcely blessed by Goddess Laxmi, and I have already given the reasons above. Most Indians do not invest on acquiring useful skills because that is hard work. Indians somehow try to avoid working hard and hope to move ahead through short cut methods. When it comes to dealing with other humans, these short cut methods are bribes, sycophancy, sifaarish and other forms of corruption, which may bring “results” for the individuals but in the long run it proves counterproductive for society and the nation as a whole. No country in the world has ever progressed to become a prosperous nation by adopting short cup methods. I have been doing a lot of studies off late on the topic of economy where I have looked at the nations that were poor like India in the past but have now become prosperous. They have done so by adopting the right policies, which involved quality education, healthcare etc, adopting business friendly policies and enforcement of discipline and rule of law.

India is on the right track I feel, but the number of people blessed by Goddess Laxmi in India can increase only if we sincerely and seriously worship Goddess Laxmi and Lord Vishwakarma as the advanced Western and Far Eastern countries do. India does not have much time left to squander. India has another one decade or so to get its act together. If Indians can ensure quality education and have skilled employable manpawer and the right infrastructure and policies during the next one decade then Goddess Laxmi will begin to favour Indians like she favours the West and Far East nations. The vast manpower (then the biggest in the world, overtaking China), if educated and trained properly would be an asset for the nation. India cannot afford to fail here because failure means this vast population, if not employable, would then become a burden on the nation.

How to harness manpower for national development is a vast subject and I will cover it in some future date. Right now, people are in festival mood and most of them have more immediate pressing issues to worry about rather than long term issues like progress of the nation.:)

One important immediate issue that people worry about on the eve of Deewaali is- will I get leave to go home. 🙂 If somehow he/she manages to get leave, then the next worry is- trains are going crowded, how will I be able to reach home for festival. Indians, as is their wont, cannot help but look for short cuts here too. Ticket is wait listed. No problem. I will do something. So, a few days ago, I find an unsolicited whatsapp good morning message on my official mobile number. A few hours later, the person comes to the point. My son is employed in Mumbai. He has to come home to me for deewaali. He is wait listed. Here are the details. My take- I do not even know, who is this person, moreover, I am not based at Mumbai.Train is from A to B. I am based at C. This stranger wants me to go out of my way and help him. I am a soft hearted man by default, so I decide to help. I give the details to a staff of mine to be sent to concerned person in Mumbai, while telling him that I do not know who this person is. My staff is of the view that this person, going by his location must have obtained this number from the kid of my predecessor, who stays in this location B. OK, let us help him even if he is a stranger to me. So the requisition for emergency quota goes to Mumbai. On the date of journey, Mumbai office honours the request and allots a berth against emergency quota to the person. So this person is able to go to his parents during festival. Happy ending. Claps.

What about me and my family ? No such luck. I am based in eastern UP. My wife is a state government employee in MP. MP is going to assembly polls later in the month. Model code of conduct is in force in MP. So state government employees will not be given leave from now till the elections are over. So, unlike previous years, my wife and daughter will not join me for Deewaali at my place. First time ever for me to be away from my family during Deewaali. It happens. Elections are important. Country’s fate hinges on them. My wife often nags me to try and get myself posted in MP. Easier said than done, I tell myself sotto voce. Moreover, I feel that I am making a real contribution in the development of this place. It may look idealistic, but I feel that the nation will develop only if the backward areas of the nation, viz UP and Bihar develop. It is the duty of all people, including those from outside UP and Bihar, to help in the cause. I sincerely and seriously believe that I am adding my mite in this important work of nation building. I keep all these idealistic thoughts to myself of course. I do not think my wife will understand these sentiments. 🙂

Since all low hanging fruits, viz popular Deewaali songs, have already been plucked on past occasions, we are left with Deewaali songs that are obscure ones.

Here is an extremely obscure Deewaali song. It became available on YT when our own My Saradand Kamath uploaded it sometime back. The song is from “Badi Baat” (1944).

“Badi Baat” (1944) was produced and directed by Mazhar Khan for Mazhar Arts, Bombay. The movie had Swarnlata, Ulhas, Yakub, Mazhar Khan, Moti, Gulab, Khaleel, Madhusudan, Lalita, Mishra, Saguna, Ram Marathe, Baby Roshan, Chandra etc in it.

There were nine songs in this movie. Two songs from the movie has been discussed in the past.

Only The name of Kusum Mantri is mentioned in HFGK though the song seems to have at least another female voice, plus chorus. Swami Ramanand is the lyricist. Music is composed by Feroz Nizami.

Only the audio of this melancholic song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

I may have been unable to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

I take this opportunity wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe deewaali.

The movie had Mridula, Shamim, Agha Jaan, Dilip Kumar, P F Pithawala, K N Singh, Mumtaz Ali, Arun Kumar, Vikram Kapoor, Jagannath Arora,Naseem Lodhi, C J Pandey, Khaleel etc in it. The movie is today remembered as the debut movie of Dilip Kumar.

The movie had ten songs in it. For some reason I thought that this movie was already YIPPEED. My be I confused it with some other movie. Only three songs from the movie have been discussed so far.

Here is the fourth song from “Jwaar Bhaata”(1944) to appear in the blog. This song is a calling the beloved song which is sung by Parul Ghosh. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Some words in the lyrics are not clear. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

“Ajaamil”(1948) was directed by Jamnadas Kapadia for Sanskar Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Umakant, Malti, Kanta Kumari, Narmadashankar, Kashinath, Bhimji Bhai, Chandrika, Shanta bai, Suresh, Manhar Desai etc in it.

This obscure movie had twelve songs according to HFGK. A few of these songs have become available on YT. Though HFGK is silent about the singers of all these songs, One can make out which song contain which voices.

Here is the first song from “Ajaamil”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rajkumari. Lyrics are penned by Kavi Prabhulal Dwiwedi according to HFGK. Music is composed by Master Mohan junior.

It is interesting to note that the uploader of this song, well known record collector Mr Girdharilal Vishhwakarma mention the lyricist as S P Tripathi, an entirely different name from what is mentioned in HFGK. I have gone with the name provided by uploader.

Music is composed by Master Mohan Junior.

With this song, “Ajaamil”(1948) makes its debut in the blog. As many as 149 HIndi movies were released in 1948. With this song, “Ajaamil”(1948) becomes the 100th movie of 1948 to find representation in the blog. So this is yet another example of an “artificial” though significant landmark for the blog. 🙂


Song-Maanat naahin bihaari re (Ajaamil)(1948) Singer-Rajkumari, Lyrics-S P Tripathi, MD-Master Mohan Junior

Lyrics

Maanat naahin bihaari re ae
laakh jatan kar haari re ae
Maanat naahin bihaari re ae
laakh jatan kar haari re ae

jaaun jahaan main
sang sang doley
jaaun jahaan main
sang sang doley
madhur madhur sur
bain wo boley
naath hamaare
nain ishaare
lok ki laaj bisaari re ae
lok ki laaj bisaari re ae
Maanat naahin bihaari re ae
laakh jatan kar haari re ae

aap mahaawar mehndi lagaaye
aap mahaawar mehndi lagaaye
aap hi ang hamaar sajaaye
aap hi mohe paan khilaaye
haat se apne lagaayi re
haat se apne lagaayi re
Maanat naahin bihaari re
laakh jatan kar haari re

roothh jo jaaun
mujhko manaaye
roothh jo jaaun
mujhko manaaye
pair paden
aur binti sunaayen
nain neer se
dhoye charan mora
kare manuhaar wo bhaari re ae
kare manuhaar wo bhaari re ae
Maanat naahin bihaari re ae
laakh jatan kar haari re ae
Maanat naahin bihaari re ae
laakh jatan kar haari re ae
