This song is the 100th duet of Rafi Sb and Geeta Dutt to be posted here on our blog.

As I was browsing the net earlier in the day, checking for articles and source material on Guru Dutt, I came across this she’er (couplet) which was written by the poet Kaifi Azmi in 1964, on hearing the news of Guru Dutt’s demise.

रहने को सदा दहर में आता नहीं कोई,
तुम जैसे गए ऐसे भी जाता नहीं कोई
माना की उजालों ने तुम्हें दाग़ दिये थे,
बे रात ढले शमा बुझाता नहीं कोई

rehne ko sadaa dehar mein aata nahin koi
tum jaise gaye aise bhi jaata nahin koi
maana ki ujaalon ne tumhen daagh diye the
be-raat dhale shama bujhaata nahin koi

It is true, no one comes in this world
To reside for ever
But the way you departed
No one even leaves that way
Granted that the brightness of flame
May have inflicted painful burns
But still, no one douses the lamp
Before the night comes to an end

Remembering Guru Dutt, the vital genius of Hindi cinema, on his anniversary today (9 july 2017). Had he been alive, he would have been 92 today.

Today’s song is from film Chaalbaaz (1958).

What an year 1958 was, in terms of musical films ! Most Music Directors had offered their best songs in this year. The popular playback singers were very busy and the musicians and the arrangers had a field day, running from this studio to that studio for rehearsals and recordings. The films that came in 1958 were full of wonderful music and one can not make choices in those films. Not only that but there was a variety of different Genres of films on offer. Historical, Costume, stunt,Mythologicals, social, Comedy….you name it and you would have it. A grade, B grade and C grade… all grades of films had A grade music. An example to quote would be “Hamen to loot liya mil ke husn walon ne…”a very popular qawwali from a C grade film like “Al Hilal “- 58.
