Remembering Nargis today on the 91st anniversary of her birth.

Born in the year 1929, she made her debut in films as a child artist as early as 1935. And then starting with 1942, she moved on from child roles to adult roles. As I was searching for a song from her early years in films, I chanced to see this song, which is really very playful and chirpy. And listening to the song made me wonder why has this song so far been away from this blog.

Nargis is all of 21 years of age, as she is singing and trying to hold back Karan Dewan (her husband in the film) from going to office. The words of the song are simple and endearing and the whole ambiance of the scene is very charming. There is a childlike entreaty in the pleadings of the newlywed, as she recounts her hours of boredom when the husband is sway to office. And the husband too is in part a willing accomplice, only that near the end of the song, his elder brother (role played by Shyam Chadha) calls him to leave for office, and he has to perforce make a quick departure from the song and the beseeching wife.

The film is ‘Chhoti Bhabhi’ from 1950. It is produced under the banner of Filmkar Limited, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors in the film is listed as Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyama, Suraiya Chaudhary, Yakub, Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani Jugnu, G Sarang, and Khushdil. Yes, the Johar we see in this list is IS Johar, doing a small role here.

The film has nine songs, all of them are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music is from the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram. It is 1950 – and the voice of an equally young singer, Lata Mangeshkar, sounds so wonderful. The rendition by the singer and the performance on the screen, both are really superb. The outcome is a naughty playful song that is really endearing.

The film has a total of nine songs, of which seven songs are already showcased here. This is the eighth song to find its place on our blog today. With one more to go, this film is ready for the Yippeee category.

Lyrics

na jaana

na jaana na jaana mere babu
o daftar naa jaana

chhalak gaya paimaana

Sudhir ji,

Nobody need sing it in the days of Work From Home. On the contrary, fed up of the Babu ji ‘s constant presence, she may urge him to go!

I immediately remembered

Hai hai ye majboori
Ye mausam are ye doori

Mat jaiyo naukariya chod ke

and

Subah are Sham
Kaam hi kaam.

And, an unrelated

Tu maike mat jaiyo .
