Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 32

This date ten years ago (viz 19 March 2012) saw four songs from four different movies getting covered in the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5656 Mit nahin sakta kabhi likha huaa taqdeer ka Sansaar (1951) 6 songs covered so far out of 14
5657 Nasheeli hawaa hai samaa hai suhaana Commercial Pilot Officer(1963) 3 songs covered so far out of 6
5658 Wo zindagi to thhi ab tak teri panaahon mein Neelkamal(1968) Movie YIPPEED by now
5659 Pukaarti hai muhabbat kareeb aa jaao Daastaan e Laila Majnu(1974) One song covered so far out of 11

One movie out of four, whose songs were covered on 19 march 2012 has since been YIPPEED. The other three movies are eligible for Blog Ten Year challenge today.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) is one of the eligible movies.

“Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) was produced and directed by R L Desai for Chandra Art, Bombay. The movie had Anaamika, Kanwaljit,Dheeraj Kumar(special appearance), Jayshree.T., Satyajeet, K.N.singh, B.M.Vyas, S.N.Tripathi, Dulari, Mohan Sherry etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. One song has been covered so far and that was ten years ago.

So after a gap of exactly ten years, here is the second song from “Daastaan e Laila Majnu”(1974) to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Iqbal Qureshi is the music director.

The song is picturised on Jayshree T, with Anamika and Dhiraj Kumar also visible as royals. Laila Majnu tale is a medieval tale, that is why Jayshree T dance should not be called a cabarat dance, but that dance and also the music sounds and looks every inch a cabarat dance song to me. 🙂 Hindi movies are in any case not known for attentions to details and accuracy of facts.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.
