#the Decade of Fifties –1951 – 1960 #

In this post we are going to listen to a song from the movie ‘Devyaani-1952’. It was directed by Vasant Painter for ‘Madhav Pictures’.

Madhukar Harihar was the producer of this movie. It had Shakuntala, Sapru, Mahipal, Meenakshi, Vasantrao Pahalwan, Banke Bihari, Baburao Pendharkar and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.07.1952.

“Devyaani-1952” was a ‘mythological film’. Our respected Arunkumar ji has mentioned about this movie in brief as given below, while presenting a song from this movie on the blog on 19.10.2021.

I am reproducing the text from his post as given below.

There were regular wars between the Gods and the Demons (Sur and Asur). However the Gods could never win any battle. The reason?, Rishi Shukracharya, who was the Rajguru of the Demons knew the Sanjivani mantra, with which the dead demons would be brought back to life.

Realising that without getting the mantra, they would never win any battle with Demons, the Gods sent Kach- son of God Brihaspati (Jupiter) to Shukracharya as his disciple. Kach impressed Shukracharya’s daughter Devyani and they became friends. Devyani started loving Kach.

The Demons came to know who Kach was . They killed him, burnt his body and mixed the ashes with wine, which was given to Shukracharya to drink. He knew that it contained Kach ashes. Meanwhile Devyani came to know that Kach was killed. She insisted that Shukracharya use his Mantra and bring him back to life. Due to daughter’s love, Shukracharya recited the Sanjivani mantra and Kach came out alive from his stomach. Shukracharya died. But Kach now knew the Mantra and he brought back Shukracharya to life again.

Devyani now expresses her love and proposes marriage to Kach, but he refuses stating that since he came from Shukracharya’s stomach, she was her sister now. Devyani is disappointed with his weak logic and curses Kach that what he learned here, he will never be able to use anywhere. Angrily, Kach too curses her that no Bramhin will ever marry her in her life. He goes away and the film ends as a tragedy.

“Devyaani-1952” has seven songs in it, all were penned by Manohar Khanna. Music for this movie was composed by S. Purushottam.

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier as per details given below.

Song-Jaag jaag o Shaktimaan ab praath ho gayaa jaag re (Devyani)(1952) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Manohar Khanna, MD-S Purushottam


jaag jaag o shaktimaan
ab praath ho gayaa
jaag re ae
jaag jaag o shaktimaan
ab praath ho gayaa
jaag re ae

bhor tere darshan ki pyaasi
charan sparsh ko o
vyaakul dharti
baat takey ae
gangaa ki lehren
gaaye praabhaati raag re ae ae
praath ho gayaa jaag re ae

teen lok mein ae
ek hai tu hi
mahaabali sanjeevandhaari
praan-pati tu
saare jag kaa
tujhse jag kaa suhaag re ae
praath ho gayaa jaag re ae,/em>

jaag jaag shivji ke pyaare ae
jaag jaag shivji ke pyaare
dekh prabhaakar aaya dwaare ae ae
param puneet charaachar kar de
jagaa de hamre bhaag re ae
praath ho gayaa jaag re
ab praath ho gayaa jaag re ae
