“Neelam Pari”(1952) was directed by Dhirubhai Desai for Chandrakala Film company. The movie had Sajjan, Geeta Bali, Sajjan, Sapru, Gope, Kuldip Kaur, Kamal, Samson, Niranjan Sharma etc in it.

The story of this obscure movie was provided by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia while discussing an earlier song of this movie. Here is what he has to say about the story of this movie:

Neelampari, a tale of fairies or gins? A story of kings or beggars? A filmfare of mirth and miracles!

One morning when the world opened its eyes there were lightening, earth-tremor, eruption of volcanoes, shrieks and what not? Out of this fury came out a “ball of light” dazzling the eyes of the world. It was Neelam, a diamond which fulfills every desire.

Now there ensued a race of kings, queens, heroes, saints, magicians to get this Godsent gift. Challenging the might of mighty Toofan, the owner of Kal Qila, the Neelam came into the possession of Neelampari, a valiant amazon. But the villainous tricks of Toofan were enough to usurp the wanted diamond from the daredevil beauty.

Now Neelampari and her husband Parbat were in the custody of Toofan. Toofan’s vampire sister Bijli once loved this gentle soul Parbat. Bijli again wanted to victimize Parbat by the sexy snares of her charms, but got a blunt rufusal from him. It enraged Bijli and Toofan both. The sorcery of these wicked souls transformed Parbat into a wriggling dragon and and Neelampari into a `Maina. Now Bijli wore the lifeless physical mantle of charming Neelampari and kept playing with the lives of numerous youths to satisfy her lust.

Raja, a Robinhood of Shahbad won Seema, the princess in the match of archery. But due to his poverty his victory was refuted. Seema challenged the refutal.

Now Shamsher, the prime minister played another trick by asking Raja to bring Neelam, the diamond, as he wanted the throne of Shahbad for himself by getting Seema, (the only occupant of the throne) married to one of his useless sons Chunnoo and Munnoo.

Accidentally Chunnoo and Munnoo got the company of Raja who was leaving Shahbad in the pursuit of Neelam. “Neelam, Neelam” was the cry of a wayward prince and it gave Raja a clue of his wanted diamond. He followed the lovelorn prince Silvan to the bedroom of fake Neelampari (Bijli) flew with the cot of Prince Silvan.
Raja followed, but was dropped into the deep waters full of deadly sea-monsters. Chunnoo Munnoo too were left in the lonely woods by a magic cock. Toofan’s brother Badal stole the precious Neelam from Kal Qila but the stone was swallowed by a seadragon and Badal lost his life in the melee with Toofan. This loss maddenned Toofan.

Bijli managed to bring Seema near her maddened brother Toofan. But Seema was for Raja and Raja was for Seema. Raja with the help of Chunnoo and munnoo rescues Neelampari and her husband Parbat. With her magic,she regains the Neelam and also imprisons Bijli and Toofan. Thus finally Raja and Seema unite and Neelampari is thanked by all.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of the songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth and final song from “Neelam Pari”(1952) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Chandrakant, who makes his debut in the blog with this song. Music is composed by Khursheed Anwar.

I am unable to identify the lady lip syncing the song. She is not Geeta Bali. She could be Kuldeep Kaur who is the only other female figuring in the cast of the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

With this song, “Neelam Pari”(1952) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Aaj main jogan ban ke (Neelam Pari)(1952) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Chandarkant, MD-Khursheed Anwar

Lyrics

pyaar ke toote taaron par main
geet judaayi ke gaaun
aashaaon ke deep jalaa ke ae
piya milan ko jaaun

aaj main jogan ban ke
virogan ban ke
wahin chali re ae
jahaan gaya preetam pyaara
ab koi raah bataa de
mujhe samjhaa de
wo kaun gali re ae
jahaan base meet hamaara

aaj naseebon maari ki ee hansti kismat so gayi
so gayi
bichhad gaya hai man ka saathi
bhare(?) jagat mein kho gayi
kho sayi
ab mere pyaar ki duniya
singaar ki duniya
ujad gayi re
mera ab kaun sahaara
aaj main jogan ban ke
virogan ban ke
wahin chali re
jahaan gaya preetam pyaara

ghor ghataayen chhaayi hain
jhoom ke baadal aaye ae
baadal aaye
jalte dil ki pyaasi dhadkan
pal pal usey bulaaye ae
usey bulaaye
bhor papiha gaaye
koyaliya gaaye
main ro padi re ae
mujhe mere pi ne pukaara
aaj main jogan ban ke
virogan ban ke
wahin chali re
jahaan gaya preetam pyaara

For a soft and lovely and romantic expression, it probably does not get better than this delightful ghazal. The words, the music, and the rendition – all have come together to craft this wonderful expression of bashful love. Love, that wants to say many things, but remains un-speaking, when presented with the opportunity. The anxiety and hesitations tie the tongue, and the moments pass by without a word being said. Shakeel Sb has so beautifully painted the words around this emotion. Each couplet is a priceless gem. I am bowled over with how the words are knitted together.

hasraten aarzooen umangen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
un ko dekha to manzil samajh kar
ruk gaya karvaan un ke aage

Wow. And all this – without actually saying a word. The director (Nitin Bose) has so beautifully crafted the picturization of this song. The very spirit of this song would have been sullied, if the singer and the listener were together. And so this song is designed as a song being performed in the broadcasting studio at a radio station. And the intended recipient of this message is at the other end of the wave spectrum, listening to these words, as they emanate from a radio. Aah, what delicate handling, and what a discerning presentation.

The rhythm and the pace of Ravi’s music is soft and pleasant. There is a feeling of relaxed remorse, but seemingly a very satisfied and happy remorse. (‘happy remorse’ – sounds like an oxymoron. Ah yes, but all is possible in love.:) ) The instruments are played lightly, and do not distract from the words or from the visual. A light, flowing melody, that has been so lovingly rendered by Asha ji. All in all, a very pleasing and enchanting ghazal.

The film ‘Ummeed’ is listed in the Geet Kosh in the year 1971. However, some online sources, specifically IMDB and Wikipedia, list this film with the year 1962, which apparently seems to be an error. The film is produced by Rajan Films, Bombay and is directed by Nitin Bose. The Wikipedia and IMDB also list Bimal Roy’s name as the editor of this film.  This information also appears to be in error, since Bimal Roy had passed away in 1966. Is this a film that was started in the early 1960s, but got delayed and was finally released only in 1971? I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please comment on and add more information if available.

The star cast is impressive – Ashok Kumar, Joy Mukherji, Nanda, Leela Naidu, Tarun Bose, Agha, Leela Misra, Chandrima Bhaduri, Hazara Singh, Parshuram, Lakshi Chhaya, Nazir  Kashmiri, Jeevankala, Madhumati, Jankidas,  Sabita Chatterji, Tuntun, Ravikant, and Hussain amongst others. The film has seven songs, which include a rare song – written and rendered by the music director Ravi himself – “Insaan Jee Raha Hai Ummeed Ke Sahaare”.

Onscreen, the song is performed by Nanda, singing in the studios at a radio station. Joy Mukherji and Leela Naidu are seen together, sipping tea, and listening to this song on the radio. There is possibly some conversation before this song starts, but once the song comes on, all conversations cease. Joy Mukherji seems to be in a trance, as he listens to the voice on the radio. And Leela Naidu, possibly misreading his silence, appears happy within.

Listen, and lose yourself in the softness of this poem of love.


Song – Hum Ne Chaaha Magar Keh Na Paaye (Ummeed) (1971) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Ravi

Lyrics

hum ne chaaha magar keh na paaye
pyaar ki dastaan un ke aage
hum ne chaaha magar keh na paaye
pyaar ki dastaan un ke aage
jab nigaahe mili sharm aayi
khul na paai zabaan un ke aage

ek uljhi hui si tamannaa
dil mein kuchh karwaten le rahi hai
ek uljhi hui si tamannaa
dil mein kuchh karwaten le rahi hai
dil mein kuchh karwaten le rahi hai
un ki baahon ka le len sahaara
itni himmat kahaan un ke aage
hum ne chaaha magar keh na paaye
pyaar ki dastaan un ke aage

hasraten aarzooen umangen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
hasraten aarzooen umangen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
jaane kis raah par jaa rahi theen
un ko dekha to manzil samajh kar
ruk gaya karvaan un ke aage
hum ne chaaha magar keh na paaye
pyaar ki dastaan un ke aage

dekh kar be-zabaani hamaari
kaash wo jaan len baat dil ki
dekh kar be-zabaani hamaari
kaash wo jaan len baat dil ki
kaash wo jaan len baat dil ki
haath phailaa ke kuchh maangti hoon
apni tanhaai’aan un ke aage
hum ne chaaha magar keh na paaye
pyaar ki dastaan un ke aage
jab nigaahe mili sharm aayi
khul na paai zabaan un ke aage

हम ने चाहा मगर कह ना पाये
प्यार की दास्ताँ उनके आगे
हम ने चाहा मगर कह ना पाये
प्यार की दास्ताँ उनके आगे
जब निगाहें मिलीं शर्म आई
खुल ना पाई ज़बान उनके आगे

एक उलझी हुई सी तमन्ना
दिल में कुछ करवटें ले रही है
एक उलझी हुई सी तमन्ना
दिल में कुछ करवटें ले रही है
दिल में कुछ करवटें ले रही है
उनकी बाहों का ले लें सहारा
इतनी हिम्मत कहाँ उनके आगे
हम ने चाहा मगर कह ना पाये
प्यार की दास्ताँ उनके आगे

हसरतें आरज़ूएं उमंगें
जाने किस राह पर जा रही थीं
हसरतें आरज़ूएं उमंगें
जाने किस राह पर जा रही थीं
जाने किस राह पर जा रही थीं
उनको देखा तो मंज़िल समझ कर
रुक गया कारवां उनके आगे
हम ने चाहा मगर कह ना पाये
प्यार की दास्ताँ उनके आगे

देख कर बे-ज़बानी हमारी
काश वो जान लें बात दिल की
देख कर बे-ज़बानी हमारी
काश वो जान लें बात दिल की
काश वो जान लें बात दिल की
हाथ फैला के कुछ मांगती हूँ
अपनी तनहाईआं उनके आगे
हम ने चाहा मगर कह ना पाये
प्यार की दास्ताँ उनके आगे
जब निगाहें मिलीं शर्म आई
खुल ना पाई ज़बान उनके आगे

What happens when a tragedy queen acts opposite a comic genius ? The tragedy queen begins to act cheerful. Thus we have seen a cheerful Meena Kumari opposite Kishore Kumar in several movies of 1950s.

Even Kishore Kumar’s elder brother acting opposite Meena Kumari could have the same effect on her. “Farishta” (1958) was a Pancholi Production movie. It was directed by Ravindra Dave. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Mubarak, Anita Guha, Sohrab Modi, Mehmood, Nana Palsikar, Sheikh Murad, Mridula etc in it.
