Today’s song is from the movie ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’.

I had never read or heard about this movie earlier till I become aware of this in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). It seems to be an obscure movie and very less information about it is available so far. Luckily though few of its songs have been uploaded by music lovers and I sincerely express my gratitude towards them.

‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’ was directed by Prabhat Mukherji. It seems that Prabhat Mukherji was also the producer of this movie, as HFGK mentions the production company as Prabhat Mukherji (Producer, Calcutta).

The star cast of the movie is listed as Balraj Sahni, Ajay Sahni (Parikshit Sahni), Miss Kaul, Kalpana Sahni, Pran Kishore Kaul, Badgami, Raja Hamid, Kishori Kaul, Rajani Gupta, Gitanjali Desai, Shazda Zameer Ahmed, Ghulam Muhammad Pandit, Ghulam Muhammad Sufi, Krishna Pandit, Zehar Rai, and others. It was passed by Censor Board on 24.08.1972.

Here is brief about this movie which is mentioned on its song-link on YouTube by the uploader of the today’s song.

Mahjoor (Peerzada Ghulam Ahmad) was a poetic legend in the valley of Kashmir, known for his revolutionary poetry of 20th Century, Unfortunately, not much documented and heard beyond the valley. Balraj Sahni was amazed with the popularity of the poet in the region and decided to document the poet’s life on celluloid in mid 60s. He opted his son Parikshit to play the role of the poet in biopic, while he himself played father of Mahjoor. The music was given by Prem Dhawan with songs penned by Kaifi Azmi & Prem Dhawan (a few translations of Mahjoor’s works). The bilingual film directed by Prabhat Mukherjee got delayed in making and release and could only be released in 1972. The song gives some insight, how Mahjoor was the poet & the VOICE of the folk, the common people of the valley with his images, and characters from common walks of life.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had ten songs written by two songwriters – six songs by Prem Dhawan and three songs by Kaifi Azmi. One song is a traditional and famous ghazal penned by Mirza Ghalib. Though HFGK mentions Prem Dhawan’s name for six songs it does not mention Kaifi Azmi’s name for the remaining four songs. However, for lyricists of the movie the credit is given to both.

The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No.  Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Phir Mujhe Deed-Ay-Tar Mahendra Kapoor Ghalib
02 Aaja Aaja O Mere Dilbar Usha Mangeshkar, chorus
03 Chaman Waale Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
04 Aazaadi Hamaare Ghar Aayi Mahendra Kapoor, chorus
05 Subah Ki Hansmukh Dulhan Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan
06 O Kheton Ki Shahazaadi Talat Mehmood Prem Dhawan
07 Maine Naye-Naye Phool Choone Usha Mangeshkar Prem Dhawan
08 Ruk Jaa Aaj Ki Raat Krishna Kalle, chorus Prem Dhawan
09 Tamanna Kab Se Hai Dilbar Suman Kalyanpur Prem Dhawan
10 Jaane Kab Aaoge O Dilbar Manna Dey, chorus Prem Dhawan

Today’s song is sung by Talat Mehmood. I had not listened to this song earlier and when I discovered the link for this song, I got a pleasant surprise. Besides being a song sung by Talat Mehmood it was also not posted on the blog and I got this opportunity to present it on the blog.

With the today’s song ‘Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor’makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Is Duniya Mein Rehnewaale Sab Hon Ek Samaan” from the movie ‘Samaanta’ to today’s movie song-post.

Song – O Kheton Ki Shahzaadi (Shaayar-e-Kashmir Mahjoor) (1972) Singer – Talat Mehmood, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

Lyrics

o kheton ki shehzaadi
qurbaan tujh pe vaadi

o kheton ki shehzaadi
qurbaan tujh pe vaadi
tu jab bhi muskura di
har phool ne dua di
har phool ne dua di ee ee
o kheton ki shehzaadi
qurbaan tujh pe vaadi

khushboo ki tarah hardam
awaara jungalon mein
khushboo ki tarah hardam
awaara jungalon mein
kaatib ka chaand jaise
bechain baadlon mein
rangeen sabaab jitna aa aa aa
rangeen sabaab jitna
utni hi seedhi saadi
utni hi seedhi saadi
o kheton ki shehzaadi
qurbaan tujhpe vaadi

jhoomar hain motiyon ka
maathhe ka ye paseena
jhoomar hain motiyon ka
maathhe ka ye paseena
karti hai rashq tujh pe
mehlon ki har haseena
sab ki muraad lekin
sab ki muraad lekin
qismat ne naa muraadi
qismat ne naa muraadi
o kheton ki shehzaadi
qurbaan tujhpe vaadi

ओ खेतों की शहज़ादी
कुर्बान तुझपे वादी

ओ खेतों की शहज़ादी
कुर्बान तुझपे वादी
तू जब भी मुस्कुरा दी
हर फूल ने दुआ दी
हर फूल ने दुआ दी॰ ॰ ॰
ओ खेतों की शहज़ादी
कुर्बान तुझपे वादी

खुशबू की तरह हरदम
आवारा जंगलों में
खुशबू की तरह हरदम
आवारा जंगलों में
कातिब का चाँद जैसे
बेचैन बादलों में
रंगीं शबाब जितना॰ ॰ ॰
रंगीं शबाब जितना
उतनी ही सीधी सादी
उतनी ही सीधी सादी
ओ खेतों की शहज़ादी
कुर्बान तुझपे वादी

झूमर है मोतियों का
माथे का ये पसीना
झूमर है मोतियों का
माथे का ये पसीना
करती है रश्क तुझपे
महलों की हर हसीना
सब की मुराद लेकिन
सब की मुराद लेकिन
किस्मत ने ना मुरादी
किस्मत ने ना मुरादी
ओ खेतों की शहज़ादी
कुर्बान तुझपे वादी
