#the Decade of Fifties – 1951 – 1960 #

Nowadays whenever I browse the blog, specially the list of movies, I also look at the list of yearwise movies already represented on the blog. Music lovers and readers associated with this blog and Hindi Film Music must be aware that only there are over 40,000 songs created in the history of HFM between 1931 till 1980. Of course there are many creations lost in the oblivion whose records or audio have been lost with time and there is no possibility of getting them.

When this blog was in its initial years Atul ji had mentioned in one of his posts that according to an estimate there might be 25000 songs available for us for songs upto 1980.

However I presume that many songs have since become available online during the last decade or so. So, the actual number of songs may go above 25000.
(Thanks to the passionate and enthusiastic music lovers and sources who upload songs on the digital platform.).

If someone regularly browses this blog, internet, HFGK and/or other sources where the list of all songs from a movie is available can notice such songs which are still to be posted here on this blog.

Today I present one such song whose audio was not available till a few years back.

This song is from the movie ‘Saagar-1951’.

I came across this song when I was looking for a Manna Dey song from the year ‘1951’.

This movie ‘Saagar-1951’ had made its debut on the blog on 15.01.2014. Two more songs were added in the blog subsequently –one on 04.02.2014 and another on 11.02.2017.

Today’s song is the fourth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

“Saagar-1951” was directed by P. Jairaj for ‘P.J. Films Unit’ his home productions. It had Nargis, Jairaj, Bharat Bhushan, K.N. Singh, Veera, David, Durga Khote, Banke, Rajni, Krishna, Vimla, Neelam, Cecil, Bindu and others.

As mentioned in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) this movie was passed by Censor Board on 02.06.1951.

This movie has ten songs written by Pt. Narendra Sharma. Music for this movie is composed by S.K. Pal.

Geeta Dutt, Sulochana Kadam, Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Rajkumari are the voices who have sung songs in this movie.

(we will have the detailed list of songs of this movie in future post with a song from this movie).

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Manna Dey. Pt. Narendra Sharma is the lyricist and music is composed by S.K. Pal.

I am not able to note down correct words at many places where I have marked (?). I would request readers with keener ears to help to provide these missing words.

Let us move over to the song now…
