Blog Day :

5009 Post No. : 16910

———————————————–—————————————
Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 41
————————————————————————————–

This day ten years ago (5 april 2012) was a relatively “lean” day for the blog. “Only” five songs from five different movies were covered in the blog on that day. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
5735 Kyaa dekha ab nainon waali Dharmputra(1961) Movie YIPPEED by now
5736 Man morey gaa jhoom ke Mangu (1954) 6 songs covered in the blog out of 7
5737 Naiyya meri chalti jaaye My Friend(1974) One song covered out of 4
5738 Rehne do chanda badli mein Chowkidaar(1974) Movie YIPPEED by now
5739 Nateeja hamaari muhabbat ka kyaa hai Puraskaar(1970) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can see that three movies out of five whose songs figured in the blog ten years ago have since been YIPPEED in the blog.

That leaves us with only two movies that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (5 April 2022). But songs of only one of these movies are available and so practically only one movie is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

That movie is “My Friend”(1974).

“My Friend”(1974) was produced by Poonam Bhai Shah and Naushad and directed by M Rehman for Poonam Pictures Private Limited, Bombay. The movie had Rajeev(New find), Prema Narayan, Utpal Dutt, Purnima, Umraani(new find), Jagdeep, Asit Sen, Polson, Tuntun, Badri Prasad, Mona Sayeed, Hakeem, Samson, Rirkoo, Ratna, Moolchand etc in it.

“My Friend”(1974) had four songs in it. The movie made its debut ten years ago and that song covered ten years ago is the only song from this movie in the blog so far.

Today, exactly ten years later, here is the second song from “My Friend”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar with some male chorus. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a cabarat dance song. Though Lata Mangeshkar sang very few cabarat songs, she did sing a few of them, like for instance in “Izzat”(1968) “Inteqam”(1969) for Helen.

Here there is no Helen in the cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

(male chorus voices & Julie…ee…eee)

mujhko ik mehboob tumsaa chaahiye
tum hi mil jaao to phir kyaa chaahiye
mujhko ik mehboob tumsaa chaahiye
tum hi mil jaao to phir kyaa chaahiye

mujhse hi raushan naam shamaa ka
main hoon to phir kyaa kaam shamaa kaa
mujhse hi raushan naam shamaa ka
main hoon to phir kyaa kaam shamaa kaa
aaj mehfil mein andheraa chaahiye aey ae
mujhko ik mehboob tumsaa chaahiye
tum hi mil jaao to phir kyaa chaahiye

(male chorus voices)

jeeney ki rasmein mere hi bas mein
aaj hai mauqaa tod do qasmein
jeeney ki rasmein mere hi bas mein
aaj hai mauqaa tod do qasmein
sach to batlaao tumhein kyaa chaahiye ae
mujhko ik mehboob tumsaa chaahiye
tum hi mil jaao to phir kyaa chaahiye

aag ka dariyaa pyaar hai maano
dil ka lagaanaa khel na jaano o
aag ka dariyaa pyaar hai maano
dil ka lagaanaa khel na jaano
dil lagaaney ko kalejaa chaahiye aey ae
mujhko ik mehboob tumsaa chaahiye
tum hi mil jaao to phir kyaa chaahiye

(male chorus voices)

I guess Atul ji you are referring to 1969 Intequam Helen song, “Aa jaan e jaan, aa mera ye husn jawaan” & “Mehfil soyee” (Laxmi pyare), Izzat film do have a dance song “jaagi badan mein jwalaa”, but it is a dance song, not a cabret one…….

Like

Yes, it is “Inteqam”(1969).

Further, Izzat film doesn’t feature Helen, I think

Like

This movie has got Prema narayan as a heroine,
I guess this song must have been picturised on Prema narayan herself(Because Prem narayan used to enact such bindaass roles of dancers, free spirited lady)
Or else the other actress Mona sayeed is there on whom this song may have been picturised,

But I am very pretty sure about the fact that all the Lata mangeshkar songs of this movie must have been picturised on Heroine Prema Narayan herself……….

I think when hearing this song, Naushad must have been struggling then to keep himself relevant with the changing times of film music.
