Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 19
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Even this one – you might say. Aah yes, even this one. 🙂

This song from ‘Mahal’ in 1949, probably has the most recognized prelude across the entire history of Hindi Film Song. It has become the signature song of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema. No representative selection of Lata ji’s songs would ever be considered complete without it.

The all too familiar picturization – the girl on the swing then the empty swing, the lonely boat in the river, the stunningly beautiful features of Kamini (Madhubala) – the song and its images are now an unforgettable montage. There is a whole traditional lore that now accompanies this song, which has achieved a cult status over the decades.

‘Kadambari’ from 1975, is delicate love story of young hearts which has some unconventional twists to it. The film is based on the novel ‘Dharti Sagar te Sippiyan’ written by Amrita Pritam. The film is produced under the banner of Madhu Creation Picture Pvt Ltd, Bombay and is directed by HK Verma. The star cast lis listed as Shabana Azmi, Vijay Arora, Arpana Choudhary, Jeet Surendra, Ajeet Singh, Mona, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, and V Gopal etc.

The film has two songs. One is written by Amrita Pritam herself –“Ambar Ki Ek Paak Suraahi, Baadal Ka Ek Jaam Uthaakar”, composed by Ustad Vilayat Khan and sung by Asha Bhosle, and the second one is “Kyon Hum Tum Rahen Akele”, written by Geetanjali Singh and is composed and sung by Ajeet Singh.

As per the official listings, that is all the songs in this film. In fact both the songs are already present on our blog and in that sense the film is already yippeee’d.

But wait, here is the surprise that was mentioned in a message early morning today. The film carries this iconic song – a repeat version, which in of itself, has a significant importance. The song is not reused in its original form. It has been re-recorded in the voice of Kavita Krishnamurty, and reused in this film. The important point here is that this is the debut recording of a film song by Kavita Krishnamurty in Hindi films – her first song. And she gets to re-render this classic masterpiece.

The song appears in the film in two parts. One stanza is performed close to the beginning of the film. The occasion is the birthday party of Chetna (Shabana Azmi). A very close and dear friend, Amit (Vijay Arora) is still awaited to join. In this mood, Chetna sings one stanza of this song – “Deepak Bagair Kaise Parwaane Jal Rahe Hain“.

The second stanza – “Bhatki Huyi Jawaani. . .” appears sometime before the end of the film. This stanza appears in the background. The situation is that a chance meeting happens between Chetna and Sheetal (Aparna Chaudhry) after many years. Both are in passing through difficult time in life, both are single and both are awaiting the men they love to return to them. Sheetal is in love with Sudhir (Jeet Surendra), who is the brother of Chetna.

As Chetna departs from Sheetal’s home, the song starts to play, with the visual cutting back and forth between Sheetal at home, with paintbrush and canvas, and Chetna in a three wheeler heading back to her home. “Maanjhi Bagair Naiya Saahil Ko Dhoondhti Hai” – the two friends are like directionless boats at sea, searching for the shores.

A brief summary of the storyline,

Chetna and Amit are childhood friends, and are in love. Amit has a past that he once reveals to Chetna – that he is an illegitimate child. His mother was a victim of a violent assault, and the man responsible neither did own up, nor accepted the lady. Amit’s mother (Chand Usmani) single handedly brings up Amit and educates him to be a doctor. Amit reveals that he has such a reverence for his mother that he has taken a vow never to marry, not sure how the prospective addition to the family would treat his mother and whether she would understand the painful past in the family.

To Chetna it becomes clear that Amit will not marry. She is heartbroken, but then she promises herself she will never pursue him for matrimony. An interlude happens in between, and Chetna is now carrying Amit’s child. She hides this fact from everyone, including Amit, moves to Bombay from Delhi on the pretext of a job, stays there for a couple of years, has the child and then returns home with a story about an unfortunate family where the parents passed away leaving behind this newborn child. So she has adopted the child.

The parallel love saga of Sheetal and Sudhir is also not working out well, and the two are not seeing each other. Both are in pain, but both are restraining. Chetna meets with Sheetal and talks with her to coax her back and rebuild the relationship with Sudhir.

In the meantime, Chetna and Amit are also back to their normal exchanges. Amit’s mother, who has always liked Chetna, starts to help with taking care of the child. Some observations, some exchanges, something about the child and Amit’s mother comes to realize that the child’s father is Amit, her son. Situations progress to an amiable juncture where this fact gets revealed and is accepted by everybody. Both couples are back together once again.

It is a sensitively handled drama of love. There are no emotional overplays in the film. Every situation is underplayed and intelligently handled. Love stories are not always dependent on villains and stern parents to play out their saga. In some cases, it is the protagonists themselves who provide the interesting and unexpected turns to the story. ‘Kadambari’ is one such story.

The reuse of the two stanzas of this song are also very imaginative and very appropriately linked into the specific situations and story flow.

And yes, by the way, as per the ten year challenge chart published early morning today, ‘Kadambari’ made its debut 10 years ago today. Quite appropriately, we bring on this post, and add the repeat song to the list of songs of this film on our blog. The song has been suggested to me by Dear Avinash ji, who has also sent us both the set of lyrics – in Hindi and English.

A mysterious and dreary night of a palace from 1949 got transformed into a birthday party at a middle class home in Delhi in 1975. Watch, listen and enjoy.

Sir ji, many thanks for this post and specially the details of the movie, it’s storyline and other details.
Enjoyed the post a lot. Have not watched this movie and was not aware of the second stanza being played at the end of the movie. I just sent it for the original complete song. Thanks for the details of its use in the movie and how this song was woven in the storyline of this movie.
Thanks again,

Sudhir ji,
Many Thanks for the Sunday Surprise.
Rendition may have suited the circumstances in the film, but is a no match to the original.

The prelude and making of the original song is a story in itself where I remember reading somewhere that Lata didi had to walk from one corner of the recording room to the mike to have the desired effects.

First I came across the video of this song while browsing for movies due for ten-year challenge and looking link for it’s songs. I was surprised as this video was uploaded by our own Gajendra ji only. Then I checked the movie details page in HFGK Vol V where the note mentioned this details of Kavita Krishnamurthy’s first Hindi movie.
Thanks and regards,

Sudhir Ji, Thanks for the post with the contents pleasantly surprising me.
I have not seen the movie nor did I take note of it when it was released.Couple of years back a friend posted to me the song ‘Ambar ki ek pak surahi…” which appealed to me a lot.
Very interesting to know of the first recorded song by Kavita Krishnamurthy.
