“Chunariya”(1948) was directed by Ravindra Dave for Kuldeep Pictures, Bombay. Mulkraj Bhakri had written the story, dialogues, screen-play and lyrics. For all practical purposes, Mulkraj Bhakri was the producer of the movie as well, though Kuldeep Sehgal was credited as producer and Lekhraj Bhakri as production controller. Almost all persons involved in the making of this movie were displaced from Lahore during partition and this movie was their attempt to establish themselves in Bombay fil industry.

This movie had Wasti, Manorama, Pran, Randhira, Cuckoo, Narbada Shanker, Sofia, Chaand Burke,Ramesh, Sarita, Baij Sharma, Shrimati Motipal,Krishn Duggal, Menhdi Raza Raja etc in it.

The movie turned out to be a hit and that went a long way in establishing the persons in Bombay film industry.

The movie had ten songs in it. Nine songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these songs:-

Song Date of posting Singer(s)
Sab kuchh lutaayaa hamne aakar teri gali mein 2 April 2011 Rafi
Aankh meri lad gayi re lad gayi 21 December 2011 Lata Mangeshkar, Indra Goyal
O motor waale babu 23 December 2011 Geeta Dutt
Dil e naashaad ko jeene ki hasrat ho gayee tumse 1 September 2012 Lata Mangeshkar
Tera kaanton se pyaar 4 February 2013 Geeta Dutt, Rafi
O koi nain mila ke chala gaya 3 April 2017 Geeta Dutt
Hansi le ke aaye thhe ro kar chale 3 August 2017 S D Batish
Tere milne ko jee dhadke 2 May 2018 Geeta Dutt
Daaman se bandh gayi choli re 11 September 2021 Geeta Dutt

One can notice that as many as five singers were used in the nine songs that have been covered so far. The singers were strugglers at that time. This movie saw Lata Mangeshkar singing a ghazal for the first time in Hindi movies. The Rafi Geeta Dutt duet in this movie is the oldest Rafi Geeta Dutt duet in Hindi movies that is available. Lata Mangeshkar had sung only one duet with a male singer till 1947. This year, she sang eight such duets. Her duet with Indra Goyal was her only duet with that singer.

The tenth and final song from the movie is a rare song. It would appear that very few people have actually listened to this song. HFGK mentions this song as “saawan aaya-3 re jaage more bhaag sakhi re”. The words “Saawan aaya” appear in the movie only towards the end of the song. “Jaage mora bhaag sakhi re” is not at all there. Instead, we find the opposite words, viz “Soye mora bhaag saki ree” in the song. 🙂

Listening to the song, one would classify it as a Geeta Dutt solo with chorus towards the end. But, HFGK mentions this song as sung by Geeta Dutt, Zohrabai Ambalewaali and Asha Bhonsle. HFGK also mention this song as the first Hindi film song sung by Asha Bhonsle.

If Zohrabai Ambalewaali and Asha Bhonsle have sung in this song, then that would be in the last stanza that is sung by chorus though personally I could not detect the individual voices of Zohrabai Ambalewaali and Asha Bhonsle. People with better hearing abilities may be able to detect their voices.

Nevertheless, this rare song does have the distinction of being the first Hindi movie song with Asha Bhonsle’s voice in it.

With this rare and special song, all the songs of “Chunariya”(1948)have now been covered and this movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Lyrics

o o o
o o o o

bhanwar padi hai mori naiyya
bhanwar padi hai mori naiyya
roothh gaya

roothh gaya hai hamse khewaiyya
roothh gaya hai hamse khewaiyya
na mora baabul
na mora bhaiyya
na mora bhaiyya

saawan sakhi ree main kaise gaaun
kisko dil ka haal sunaaoon
haal sunaaoon oon oon
saawan sakhi ree main kaise gaaun
kisko dil ka haal sunaaun
haal sunaaoon oon oon

naa gaa ree sakhi
naa gaa ree sakhi
ye saawan ka raag

em>more man mein laage aag sakhi
more man mein laage aag
more man mein laage aag sakhi
more man mein laage aag

soye more bhaag sakhi ree
saawan aaya re
saawan aaya re
soye more bhaag sakhi ree
saawan aaya re
saawan aaya re

saawan aaya saawan aaya
saawan aaya re
saawan aaya saawan aaya
saawan aaya re

jaage more bhaag sakhi ree
saawan aaya re
saawan aaya re
