Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 11

‘Dhuli’ (‘The Drummer’ 1954, Bangla film) was directed by Pinaki Mukherjee. The main star cast included Prashanta Kumar, Suchitra Sen, Mala Sinha, Anil Chatterjee, Pahadi Sanyal, Chhabi Biswas etc. The film is available for viewing with English sub-titles on the video sharing platforms.

The main theme in the story of the film is music. The story also throws some points for the audience to ponder as to how a simple villager’s life is threatened by the modernity of the city life. Also, how the innocence of a villager is affected by the materialistic life in the city. At the end, the virtues of a villager triumph over the materilism of a city dweller, of course at the cost of the death of the former who was a talented singer from the village. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Parashar (Prashanta Kumar), the grandson of a celebrated drummer in his village develops interest in singing when he witnesses a singer singing a devotional song during Durga Pooja. However, his grandfather wants him to continue playing Dhol as his family has been playing it for ages in the village. After the death of his grandfather, Parashar moves to Calcutta (Kolkata) to learn singing from a renowned music teacher (Pahadi Sanyal) who has a daughter, Minoti (Suchitra Sen). Since Parashar has no place to stay in Calcutta, he is given a room to stay in his teacher’s house. Soon after the completion of his musical training, his music teacher dies leaving him and Minoti in the house. In due course of time, Parashar becomes one of the popular radio singers. He also trains Minoti for singing. Both Parashar and Minoti develops liking in each other’s company. Both of them refrain from telling that they love each other.

There is a musical competition in which Minoti and Ratri (Mala Sinha), the daughter of a wealthy family, are the participants among others. Minoti wins the competition. Ratri who comes second in the competition is upset. She manages to employ Parashar as her new music teacher to improve her singing. However, he has to leave Minoti’s house as this was a pre-condition put in by Ratri’s mother lest it may become a scandal that Parashar was sharing the house with Minota after the death of her father.

The training sessions bring Parashar and Ratri close to each other who started liking Parashar. The closeness of Ratri and the respect Parashar gets from Ratri’s family is not liked by Pulak, a family friend who also acts as a Manager for Ratri’s singing concerts who believes that in a concert, appearance is more important than the singing talent. He tries to create a rift between Ratri and Parashar. Pulak wants to commercially exploit the singing talent of Ratri through publicity much against the wishes of Parashar. This leads to some rifts between them.

In the meantime, Parashar’s grandmother in the village is very sick. His uncle comes to Ratri’s house to take Parashar to his village. It is at this point, Pulak comes to know that Parashar belongs to drummer’s community. Ratri is upset as she thinks that he deliberately concealed his low caste identity. Upset with Ratri’s outburst, Parashar leaves Calcutta to visit his village to see his grandmother. But the turns of events have so much shattered the mind of Parashar that he becomes vagabond without eating for days. One day, he collapses at the banks of a river due to exhaustion and weakness. Minoti who comes to know about Parashar being missing, finds him and brings him to her house. But he does not recover from his illness and dies. So, the end is unconventional for a love triangle of this type in which it is one of the heroines who usually dies at the end.

Being a musical film, there are many songs in the film which I have lost count because some of the songs are very short. But I have noted that there are at least 3 full-pledged Hindi songs of three different genre – ghazal, semi-classical and devotional.

I have selected a ghazal, ‘taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi’ sung by Pratima Banerjee. Since Pt. Bhushan’s name appears as one of the lyricists in the film, others being Narayan Gangopadhyay, Pranab Roy and Bimal Ghosh, I have taken him as the lyricist for this song which has been set to music by Rajen Sarkar. The song is picturised on a young Mala Sinha.

taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi

chupke chupke nigaahon ne

jin ki har baat honthon pe aane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani sunaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani sunaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi

dard unke mohabbat ka badhne laga
chaandni raat jab muskuraane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani

jal rahi ee ee hoon tamanna ki aag mein en en en
meri kismat mujhe ae ae ae ae
aazmaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
zindagi pyaar ke geet gaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi
taar dil ke jawaani hilaane lagi ee ee ee
