“Padmini” (1948) was directed by Wali Sahab for Punjab Film Corporation. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Ashok Kumar, Mumtaz Ali, Samson, Maya Devi, Neelam, Bibi, Ibrahim, Harun, Sultana, A Shah etc. in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from “Padmini”(1948) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Wali Sahab is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Haider.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Regulars may have noticed that very few posts have appeared in the blog for the last few days, especially from me, despite the last few days being holidays.

No, I was not busy elsewhere. I had sufficient time for the blog, but I spent that time on doing background work on the blog.

Majrooh Sultanpuri completed 1000 songs in the blog as a lyricist on 1 october 2017, which was his birth anniversary. It was on the morning of that day that it struck me that I should go through the entire filmography of Majrooh Sultanpuri and write an article based on that. It took me nearly four days before I found myself prepared with my data about Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Instead of discussing all that information in one huge article, I have decided to break that up in smaller chunks of information to be discussed over several articles.

Majrooh Sultanpuri began his career as a HFM lyricist in 1946 and he continued writing lyrics till his death in 2000. That works out to an amazing career of 55 years !

One would feel badly let down if one decides to look up at the wikipedia entry for Majrooh Sultanpuri. Majrooh Sultanpuri, one of the biggest name amomg lyricists (if not the biggest) during the golden era of HFM deserved much better researched writeup than what is available in wikipedia. The wikipedia page mentions some 15 music directors with whom Majrooh Sultanpuri and picks Anand Milind and Jatin Lalit for special mention as notable collaborators with Majrooh Sultanpuri. That is blasphemy of the highest order !

The blasphemy continues further on the wikipedia page where it is mentions that Majrooh Sultanpuri worked with R D Burman in just nine films !

To put things in perspective, Majrooh Sultanpuri worked with 55 music directors according to my count. He penned songs in over 300 movies (the exact number is not known to me , though it is over 315). Various sources give figures of over 2000 songs for Majrooh Sultanpuri.

I went through the listings of HFGK part II to part V and noted down the detailed break up of all the songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri. For songs penned after 1980, I do not have any HFGK to go by. Something on the lines of HFGK has recently been printed recently for songs between 1981 to 1990, and that can be considered HFGK part VI, but I do not have that book with me at present. So, I have relied upon online sources, hoping that their information is accurate.

After counting all the songs, I feel that Majrooh Sultanpuri may have penned just over 1800 songs during his career. My estimate is lower than the estimates put up by other sources. I will discuss the break up of Majrooh Sultanpuri in detail in my writeups running into a few articles, beginning with this one.

The first movie where Majrooh Sultanpuri got to write lyrics was “Shahjahaan” (1946). Naushad was the music director. It was a K L Saigal starrer movie. So Majrooh Sultanpuri had the privilege of writing lyrics that were sung by K L Saigal. One of these sogs also had the voice of an up and coming singer caller Mohammad Rafi.

“Shahjahaan”(1946) had ten songs in it. Majrooh Sultanpuri penned seven of them. Majrooh Sultanpuri worked with Naushad in a total of nine movies. The break up is:

Thus we see that Majrooh Sultanpuri penned 57 songs for Naushad in nine movies. 40 of these songs have been covered in the blog. Five out of these nine movies are already YIPPEED.

The second music director with whom Majrooh Sultanpuri worked was Ghulam Mohammad. They came together for the first time in “Doli”(1947). They worked together in six movies, with “Paakeeza””(1971) being their last collaboration.

In the next part, I will cover those music directors who began collaborating with Majrooh Sultanpuri from 1950s.

Song-Aa jaao phir zara meri bigdi ko banaane (Dada)(1949) Singers-Shamshad Begam, Surinder Kaur, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Naashaad

Lyrics

o o o
aa jaao zara
aa jaao zara
phir meri bigdi ko banaane
aa jaao zara
dukh dard ke kisse hain bahut tumko sunaane
aa jaao zara
aa jaao zara
phir meri bigdi ko banaane
aa jaao zara

ujdi huyi duniya ko bhala kaise basaaun
khoyi hui kismat ko kahaan dhoondhne jaaun
dhoondhne jaaun
main dard bhari
dard bhare mere fasaane
hai kaun mera
hai kaun jo aaye
meri bigdi ko banaane
hai kaun mera

ulfat ko zamaane ki hawa raas na aayi
dil deta hai ro ro ke
tumhaari hi duhaai
haay duhaai
jeena hai ghazab haaye
sitam hain ye zamaane
aa jaao zara
aa jaao zara
phir meri bigdi ko banaane
aa jaao zara

dil tod diya hai ki
tamanna bhi na machle
bedard zamaane ki tarah
wo bhi to nikle
insaan nahin wo jo
mera dard na jaane
hai kaun mera
hai kaun
jo aaye meri bigdi ko banaane
aa jaao zara

pyaar ka hain mausam

jhoom raha masti mein gagan
jaag uthhi mere dil ki lagan
jhoom raha masti mein gagan
jaag uthhi mere dil ki lagan

dhoondhe tujhe meri khoyi nazar
kaise katega akele safar
dhoondhe tujhe meri khoyi nazar
main gir gir jaaun
sambhal nahin paaun
zara sa tu baahon mein le le
o o o
pyaar ka hai mausam
ham hain akele
tujhko pukaare ye din albele
aise mein aa bhi ja
aise mein aa bhi ja
pyaar ka hai mausam
ham hain akele
tujhko pukaare ye din albele
aise mein aa bhi ja
aise mein aa bhi ja

Mukesh and his co-singers – 4
————————————————

A song recorded and composed by Roshan in 1950, was the topic of discussion on a TV program nearly 5 decades later. The singer (judge on the show) was requested by none other than Anil Biswas, to sing a few lines of the famous song. The specific reference was to the word “ib” in the song “Sun Bairi Balam Sach Bol Re Ib Kyaa Hoga” from ‘Bawre Nain’ (1950). She rendered the song in an effortless manner without any background music. It is difficult to believe that she could sing so well at the spur of the moment.

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.

A voice, that is as soft and pleasing as cool breeze. And a singing that is most natural, with no efforts for any artificial embellishments to the rendition.  A voice that is not formally trained. And yet, this voice and the persona behind it, have become synonymous with being the first lady of Bangla cinema.

Unbelievable – that this song is still waiting to be posted.

This gem of a song, a forgotten favorite from the radio listening days. Such a lovely and soulful song, a wondrous melody that enhances the poignancy of the emotions contained within the words. And the words – what an ocean of feelings has been captured and bundled, just within the three phrases of the first line itself,
