Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

Lyrics

baadab
baamulahija
hoshiyaar
mehfil mein lutne waala hai pyaar
aa gayi zulfon waali
aankhon mein surma
honthon pe laali

dilruba dilli waali
dilruba dilli waali
dilwaalon mein
aa gayi
nasha ban kar uthhi
jhoom kar chha gayi
dilruba dilli waali
ha
dilruba dilli waali
dilwaalon mein aa gayi
nasha ban kar uthhi
jhoom kar chha gayi
dilruba dilli waali

subhaan allah
subhaan allah
jaisa suna thha
waisa hi paaya
aapko dekha toh yaqeen aaya
agar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast

aap aaye
haan
aap aaye
mil gayi daulat
humein zamaane ki
ki aap hi se
haan aap hi se
aap hi se hai raunak gareebkhaane ki
gareebkhaane ki
aap kya aaye
ghar mein bahaar aa gayi
dilruba dilli waali
ha
dilruba dilli waali
dilwaalon mein aa gayi
nasha ban kar uthhi
jhoom kar chha gayi
dilruba dilli waali

Baadab
baamulaahija
hoshiyaar
aa rahe hain aashiqon ke sardaar

tauba tauba
yeh aaj meri chashme aawaara
kya dekh rahi hai nazaara
ke mera rafeek tere kareeb
arre phoote naseeb

aapki tareef
ek aashiq gareeb
haan yeh gairon se ulfat
ye kadardaani teri
haan yeh gairon se ulfat
ye kadardaani teri
mujhko darr hai
le na doobe tujhko
naadaani teri
haan yeh gairon se ulfat
ye kadardaani teri
mujhko darr hai
le na doobe tujhko naadaani teri

banaa ke husn ko naata(?) naa yoon sitam todo
banaa ke husn ko naata(?) naa yoon sitam todo
bas apne dil hi ko samjhaao
mera gham chhodo
mera gham chhodo
ki main pee kar ye jaam
hosh mein aa gayi
dilruba dilli waali
dilruba dilli waali
ab hosh mein aa gayi

nasha ban kar uthhi
jhoom kar chha gayi
dilruba dilli waali

jo chheda maine taraana
suna aur samajh liya
samajh liya
samajh liya
sunaaya maine jo gaana
woh dil pe likh bhi liya
likh liya
like liya
aur mere dil ki baat
woh bhi yaad aa gayi
aa gayi
aa gayi
aa gayi
aa gayi
toh phir bujhaa kar chiraag
aa bhi ja
tu dil mein
dil mein
ke jalne waalon ka kya kaam mehfil mein

u u
u u u

u u u

dilruba dilli waali
dilruba dilli waali
dilwaalon mein aa gayi

nasha ban kar uthhi
jhoom kar chha gayi
dilruba dilli waali

Thank you very much Peevesie’s Mom ji for this post and remembering Premnath on his birth anniversary today.
(I liked Premnath’s many roles in various movies and ‘Kopa ka Baana’ from ‘Nehle Pe Dehla-1976 🙂
Special thanks for a song from ‘Dus Numberi-1976’ one of my favorite movie (and part of my nostalgia).
I will also try to come back with the story line of this movie once again, may be with a song from this movie if possible in future 🙂
Thanks again,
Regards,

Peevesie’s Mom,

Premnath’s first film ‘Ajit’ (1948) was also the first full length colour film in post-indepedent India. Three songs of ‘Ajit’ (1948) have been covered in the Blog under the alternative title of the film ‘Rangeen Zamaana’ (1948).

Thank you for pointing out that “Rangeen Zamaana” is same as “Ajit. That explains why I didn’t find songs of “Ajit” on the blog

Wah, what a qawwali !

I have heard it for the first time today. The audio version shared by Prakashchandra ji is longer with an extra stanza.

A word needs to be changed here :

ke mera ”raqeeb’ tere qareeb

‘Rafique’ is a friend and ‘Raqueeb’ is a foe.

The line with ? is :
banaa ke husn ko ‘nadaan’ naa yoon sitam todo

The previous line is also referring to ‘nadaan’
‘ mujhko darr hai
le na doobe tujhko naadaani teri ‘.

About this couplet in persian :

Gar firdaus bar roo-e zameen ast
Hameen ast-o hameen ast-o hameen ast

This is a famous couplet by Amir Khusro, referring to the beauty of ‘Kashmir’, meaning ‘If there is a heaven on earth, it is here, it is here only”.

Thank you for bringing this Majrooh creation to light. Vividh Bharati never played this one, though the songs of this movie were popular.

thank you Nahmji for pointing out about “Rafique” and “Raqueeb” . But I thought that is what is written above
Also thank you for confirming (?) as “Nadaan”. I was having trouble getting the right word.
