Today 9th March’2022 is the one hundred and fifth birth anniversary of poet-lyricist Om Prakash Bhandari, popularly known to us as Qamar Jalalabadi (9th March 1917 – 9th January 2003).

On our blog, over four hundred songs written by him are already posted. As per blog statistics over three hundred songs penned by him are yet to be posted on the blog. We will be listening to them and bringing them here on the blog as ‘time’ and ‘circumstances permit us. 😊

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Painter Babu-1983’. This particular song was lying ready with me for several years. However, I was not aware of the lyricist for this song, as it was not mentioned in HFGK. I had also mentioned the same in my earlier post with a song from this same movie.

However, it so happened that I went through the Vinyl/LP cover of this movie ‘Painter Babu-1983’ just now and I got to know that today’s song is written by Qamar Jalalabadi. I am taking this opportunity to share this song.

‘Painter Babu-1983’ was directed by Ashok for ‘V.I.P. Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Manoj Kumar who also wrote this movie and had done the editing of this movie too.

It had Rajiv Goswami (debutant and in title role), Meenakshi Sheshadri (debutant), Neelima (debutant), and Virendra Sharma (also a debutant). They were supported by Rakesh Bedi, Madan Puri, Om Shivpuri, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Bandini, Ram Mohan, Kamaldeep, Bharat Kapoor, C.S. Dubey, Birbal, Lalita Kumari, Meena T., Tun Tun, Sundar Taneja, Rajan Kapoor, Madhup Sharma, Shyam Jeet, Walia, Heera, Bhinda, Leela Mishra, Jankidas, Sudhir, Mohan Choti, Shammi, Dinesh Hingoo, Aruna Irani, Kamini Kaushal, and others.

Singer Mahendra Kapoor had a special role in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 31.03.1983.

This movie had as many as seven songs written by three lyricists viz. Manoj Kumar, Qamar Jalalabadi and Qateel Shifai.

The list of the songs in this movie is as given below. (The songs appearing below may not be in the same sequence of their appearing in the movie. This will corrected in the future posts on this movie song.)

S.No. Song Title Lyricist Posted On
01 Ho, ham kuchh bhi rakh le naam uskaa Qamar Jalalabadi
02 Painter Babu, I love you Manoj Kumar
03 Kab talak shamma jali yaad nahin Qatil Shifai 11.07.2012
04 O mere sajan barsaat mein aa Qamar Jalalabadi, Manoj Kumar 25.05.2021
05 Yaar kapadaa shaandaar hai Qamar Jalalabadi
06 Hamkaa le chal yaaraa thhandi thhandi nahar ki kinaare Manoj Kumar
07 Jab yaad ki badly chhaati hai tab aankh meri bhar aati hai Manoj Kumar

Music for this movie was composed by Uttam Singh–Jagdish Khanna.

Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor, Kishore Kumar, and Bhupinder Singh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is in two parts, and it is sung by Lata Mangeshkar (main song). The second part of the song contains the voice of Mahendra Kapoor as well.

It is actress Neelima (if I recall correctly) who is lip-syncing this song on the screen. In the second part we also see Meenakshi Sheshadri, Om Shivpuri and Rajiv Goswami in the picturization of this song.

I could not find the video for the first part or the full song.

Let us now listen to this very nice song … I like it very much for its poetry.

Our tributes to Qamar Jalalabadi ji.

Yes I remember this NEELIMA, afterwards she appeared as a character artiste in Zee TV`s Serial PARIVARTAN with Govind Namdeo,
&
after that I guess she appeared in many serials, nowadays, I have not seen her in any shows
IMDB wrongly mixed up her name with Actor Shahid Kapoor`s mother Neelima Azim
Thanks Avinash ji I generally, like all songs coming from Manoj Kumar production movie house, and
I also like music from Uttam Jagdish, Kuchch alag baat hothi thi unnke compositions mein……..

I have seen this movie for the sake of its music, its a long dragging & uninspiring movie, Meenaksh sheshadri `s appearance before her nose job, I remember Rakesh Bedi and Bharat Kapoor`s roles in this movie…….
Even now whenever they telecast this (I guess only Doordarshan telecast this movie, because of its non-commercial value),
I watch the song sequences of this movie……

I also like the songs of the movie. And they were heard regularly on vividh bharati. I have not seen the film. And reading what you have written about Painter Babu, I see I have not missed anything 😀

मुझे लगता हैं की ये निलीमा वोही हैं जिसपर और अशोक सराफ पर मराठी फिल्म ” नवरी मिळे नवऱ्याला ” का अनुराधा पौडवाल , सुरेश वाडकर का गाया गाना फिल्माया गया हैं
” निशाणा तुला दिसला ना ”

Thanks Pramod ji for your comments. I think it is after a long gap that you have commented on the blog post.
Yes, I think she is the same Neelima in ‘Navri Miley Navryala’ who acted in ‘Painter Babu-1983’.
Thanks and regards,

Avinash Ji,
I did not know { or suspect 🙂 } that Qamar Jalalabadi had a real name Om Praksh Bhandari. Names so poles apart 🙂

In those days it was common that writers would prefer a pen-name to their real name for writing which generally also contains the name of their place of birth.
