#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # (A tribute to MD-Robin Chatterjee)

In this post we pay our tributes to music composer Robin Chatterjee on his ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ today. As per the ‘anniversary dates mentioned on the blog page of ‘, his date of passing is mentioned as 03rd April’1976.

Robin Chatterjee was born on 08.01.1914.

He composed music for several Bangla and Hindi movies and had worked as ‘sound recordist’ too.

On this blog we have the following movies represented where Robin Chatterjee was the music director:-

List in alphabetical order –

‘Africa-1954’, ‘Chimney Ka Dhuaan-1973’, ‘Dhaake Ki Malmal-1956’, ‘Firdaus-1953’, ‘Majboor-1954’, ‘Pehli Shaadi-1953’, ‘Raaj Laxmi-1945’, ‘Ratnadeep-1952’, ‘Sabyasaachi-1948’, ‘Sahib Bibi Golam (Bangla)-1956’, ‘Sainyya Se Bhaile Milanwa (Bhojpuri)-1964’, ‘Shobha-1954’, ‘Tum Aur Main-1947’, & ‘Uttar Phalguni (Bangla)-1963’.

Today as a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the ‘1973’ movie ‘Chimani Ka Dhuaan’.

This movie had made its debut on the blog on 13.01.2016 when the first song from this movie was presented by ‘yours sincerely’. 🙂

‘Chimani Ka Dhuaan-1973’ was directed by Prabhat Mukherjee for Kamayani Pictures, Calcutta.
It had Motilal, Balraj Sahani, Helen, Achla Sachdev, Dhumal, Sabita Chatterjee, Madhukar, Baby Madhu, Harsh, Sharminder, Mohan Ojha and Shefali.

R.S.Preetam was the lyricist of this movie, while the music was composed by Robin Chatterjee.

It seems that ‘Chimani Ka Dhuaan-1973’ must be an obscure movie of its time, as very little information of this movie is available in the domain.

As per HFGK this movie was passed by Censor on 31.12.1973.

HFGK mentions that as per the films promotional booklet it is clear that the film was earlier named as ‘Praayschit’.

This film has total seven songs (as per HFGK) where Aarti Mukherjee, Mahendra Kapoor, Pranab Patnaik, Sandhya Mukherjee, Shipra Bose and Suman Kalyanpur have given their voices to the songs.

Today we listen to the second song from this movie which is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Lyrics are by R.S. Preetam and as mentioned above music is composed by Robin Chatterjee.

This song is a nice song to listen to. However only the audio of this song is available.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.


Song-Aaj rotey nain mere (Chimney Ka Dhuaan)(1973) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-R S Preetam, MD-Robin Chatterjee


aaj rote nain mere
aaj rote nain mere ae
dhhal gaye sapne sunehare ae
aaj rote nain mere

yaad aati wo ghadi
jab baji shehnaayiyaan
yaad aati wo ghadi ee
yaad aati wo ghadi ee
jab baji shehnaayiyaan
khil uthhaa thha jab chaman
gaa uthhaa thha aashiyaan
bas gayi sapnon ki nagri
bas gayi sapnon ki nagri
thhe bhare armaan re ae
ae mere bhagwaan re
aaj rote nain mere

tinkaa tinkaa jod ke hamne
ghar basaaya thha kabhi
tinkaa tinkaa jod ke hamne
ghar basaaya thha kabhi
khushiyaan khadi thhin har qadam
gham na koi thha kabhi
lag gayi par aag aisi
lag gayi par aag aisi
sukh huye awsaan re
ae mere bhagwaan re

uthh rahe hain laal sholey
pad gaye dil mein phaphole ae
kya dashaa aa apni dikhaayen
ham tumhe bhagwaan re ae
aaj rote nain mere ae
dhhal gaye sapne sunehare ae
aaj rote nain mere ae
