Hindi Songs in Bangla Films – 24
———————————————–

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (Bangla film, 1959) was written and directed by Prafulla Chakraborty. The star cast included Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Chhabi Biswas, Anup Kumar, Chhaya Devi, Tulsi Chakraborty, Bikash Roy, Shyam Laha, Sheela Paul, Helen, Jahar Roy etc. I have watched the video of a moderately edited film on one of the video sharing platforms. Probably, the film’s VHS tape was damaged as I found some  ‘jumps’ in the continuity of the film’s story. Unfortunately, English sub-titles are not available. A short synopsis on the cover of the VCD of the film helped me to understand the film’s story in a proper perspective.

The film opens with Raja (Uttam Kumar), a small-time thief coming out of the jail and Bhola (Anup Kumar), his close associate receives Raja outside the jail. Both of them discuss the plan for a bigger heist.

One day, Mala (Sabitri Chatterjee) arrives in their neighbourhood with her father (Tulsi Chakraborty) to reside in the locality where Raja and Bhola stay.  In the first meeting with them at the time of getting down from the bus, Bhola helps Mala and her father in bringing out their belongings from the bus. But in doing so, he picks her father’s wallet. Finding his wallet missing, Raja decides to pay the fares on their behalf to impress them to be of helping nature. Within few days, Raja and Bhola became closer to Mala’s father, though Mala keeps  a distance without offending them.

Mala is the only earning member by working in the theatre. She is not aware of Raja’s real identity. He tries hard to impress her to gain her attention.  In the meantime, Gobardhan (Bikas Roy) has been trying to stalk Mala in his efforts to make her join films. She tells Raja and Bhloa about her problems with Gobardhan which results in both of them punishing him on more than one occasions. All these actions of the duo create good impression on Mala who starts liking Raja.

In line with their plan to strike something big, Raja and Bhola get acquainted with a businessman Datta (Chhabi Biswas) and impress him into lending them money for their business which does not exist. Datta gives them the financial support as well as goods with a proviso that if  they sell the goods,  he would give them concession. However, being thieves and cheaters, both of them decide neither to return the money nor the goods.

One day, Raja and Bhola are seen picking someone’s pocket in a bus in which Mala is also travelling. She comes to know the real side of Raja. She starts avoiding him. Having lost Mala, Raja decides to reform himself and becomes a changed man. He gives up pickpocketing and cheating business much against the advice of his close friend, Bhola. And then Bhola also falls in line with Raja as for him, his unimpeachable friendship with Raja is more important than his notorious vocation.

Raja approaches businessman Datta and tells him the actual truth about his activities and his love for Mala. The fact is that Datta was already aware of Raja and Bhola’s nefarious activities. He was handling with a reformist approach by testing them with financial help to start a business and become the good citizens.  Datta goes and meets Mala and asks her to forgive Raja. Raja once again regains Mala’s love and the film has a happy ending.

When I watched this film, I was getting a feeling that I was watching a Bollywood film. The story of the film was nowhere near to the quality of most of the Bangla films with strong story lines. However, to the credit of the film’s director, Prafulla Chakraborty and of the main actors like Uttam Kumar, Sabitri Chatterjee, Anup Kumar and the veteran Chhabi Biswas, there was not much of dull moments in the film. The director ensured that Uttam Kumar and Anup Kumar in the roles of petty thieves with their light comical performances remained the likeable characters for the audience in their roles throughout the film.

‘Gali Theke Rajpath’ (1959) has 3 songs all of which sound like Bollywood songs insofar as musical compositions are concerned. Of the three songs, one song is in Hindi and the remaining two Bengali songs are solos sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. Incidentally, Manna Dey sung for Uttam Kumar for the first time in this film in which he had also done yodelling.

I am presenting the only Hindi song in the film, “Tere Liye Aaya Hai Le Ke Koi Dil’ sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is picturised on Helen as a dance song in a  thieve’s den in which Uttam Kumar is present. The song is written by Naqsh Layallpuri. The musical score is that of Sudhin Dasgupta, the younger brother of Kamal Dasgupta. The tune of the song sounds somewhat similar to one of the Hindi film songs of the 50s which I am not able to recall. The song has  OP Nayyar style of composition.

Enjoy one more Helen song among the umpteen songs, Geeta Dutt sang for her in Hindi films.

Lyrics
(Based on Audio Version)

tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
kitne haseen hain ye palkon ke saaye
dekh tujhe koi ishaaron se bulaaye
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
rahegi na pheeki
bahaaren zindagi ki
aa tujh ko khushi ki
dikhaa doon manzil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
husn ke mele mein aa ke albele
wo dil hi nahi hai jo dil se na khele
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
kehti hai fasaana
nighaahen mastaana
tuhe to samjhaana
bada hai mushqil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya
 
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
jalwe dikhaati yun nazaren bachaana
kar ke bahaana kisi ko tarsaana
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
chhod ye adaayen
jo dil ko jalaayen
aa mil ke banaaye
suhaani mehfil
tere liye aaya hai leke koi dil
le le nazaraana o bhole qaatil
tere liye aaya. . .

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————

तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
कितने हसीं हैं ये पलकों के साये
देख तुझे कोई इशारों से बुलाये
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
रहेगी ना फीकी
बहारें ज़िंदगी की
आ तुझको खुशी की
दिखा दूँ मंज़िल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
हुस्न के मेले में आ के अलबेले
वो दिल ही नहीं है जो दिल से ना खेले
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
कहती हैं फसाना
निगाहें मस्ताना
तुझे तो समझाना
बड़ा है मुश्किल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया

जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
जलवे दिखाती यूं नज़रें बचाना
कर के बहाना किसी को तरसाना
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
छोड़ ये अदाएं
जो दिल को जलाएं
आ मिल के बनाएँ
सुहानी महफिल
तेरे लिए आया है ले के कोई दिल
ले ले नज़राना ओ भोले क़ातिल
तेरे लिए आया. . .

This is one of my favourite songs by Geeta ji. Helen was specially brought for a special appearance with this song. She was, as I recall, credited as ‘Bombay’ Helen in the film credits.
When we discovered this song at geetadutt.com we adored it. Later I came to know about the lyrics being by Naqsh sahab. When I met him, I enquired about it to him. He told me that the producers had contacted him to write the song. The situation was explained to him and he wrote and gave the song which was then recorded!
Helen has done a great job with the song too. Adorable

Thanks for interesting trivias and confirming that Naqsh Lyallpuri was the lyricist for the song.
