Today’s song is from the film Bahurani-1950. Films with the same title were made in 1940, 1950, 1963 and 1989. All films had different storylines. Bahurani 1950 was about a bahu who comes to a house after marriage, which is on the brink of breaking relationships due to crumbling family business and subsequent dwindling finances. The story is about how the clever Bahu mends matters to improvement and earlier glory and happiness.

Films made after India’s Independence, especially in the period of 1950 to 1960 dealt with the benefits of joint family, benefits of traditions and culture and ideal bringing up of the children. There was an attempt to glorify, reinvent and reestablish the ideals of togetherness and family value importance. This had become socially necessary because of the disturbed family structures during the Independence struggle of the 40’s. That was also the reason how during this decade i.e. 1950 to 1960, the highest number of religious films (124) were made.

In the subsequent decades i.e. from the 60’s to the 80’s, the family values changed, society structure took another shape and the focus turned from people to money. Because of the expanding money market, job opportunities all over the country, escalating living index, industrialisation and increasing cost of living, the joint family turned into nuclear families with limited progeny. Accordingly,  the type of films also changed and they became music and entertainment oriented. The family centred stories diminished (however, they remained only in films made in the South).

This also explains why old people love old films because they want to relive the atmosphere of their younger days. Music in the later period became loud with more instruments and less poetry. But this was accepted and liked by the young generation and it grew by leaps and bounds.

Coming back to today’s film bahurani-1950, it was made by Harishchandra Pictures, Bombay. This was a company floated by harishchandra rao Kadam, who was a stunt film actor, director and producer in the 30’s and the 40’s. He was the one who actually launched C. Ramchandra as a Hindi film Music Director for his film “Sukhi Jivan’-1942. Earlier C.Ramchandra had begun his career with acting as a Hero in film Naganand-1935 and then as assistant to several MDs in Minerva movietone. As a Music director he had given music to 2 Tamil films by then. Harishchandra rao kadam was the hero of film Sukhi Jivan opposite actress Ashalata (Mehrunnisa Bhagat -the first wife of Anil Biswas, MD). His brother Chandra rao kadam also was a stunt actor and a studio owner himself in his later life. His studio is still run by his sons.

Hansraj Behl was the Music director of this film and there were 4 Lyricists – B.R.Sharma, Aziz Siddiqi, Shevan Rizvi and Bharat Vyas. The cast of the film was Sulochana Chatterjee, Shekhar, kaushalya, Amar, Yashodhara Katju, David, Sofia, Ansari, E.Bilimoria and many others.

Heroine of the film was Sulochana Chatterjee-younger sister of Kamla Chatterjee, an actress and wife of Kidar Sharma, the famous writer and Director of Hindi films. Actually, at one time, there were at least 5 Sulochanas operating at the same time in the Hindi film industry. They did not create Same Name Confusion because every Sulochana used her Surname, setting her apart from other Sulochanas. There were 3 actresses- Sulochana Sr aka Ruby Myers, Sulochana Latkar and Sulochan Chatterjee. There were 2 Singers- Sulochana Chavan and Sulochana Vyas.

Born in Chandranagar, Sulochana Chatterjee was the daughter of a military man and the family, five girls, including the late Kamla Chatterjee ( she looked like Geeta Bali, and was Kidar Sharma’s wife), and one boy, used to travel along with their parents to wherever their father was transferred. From Calcutta they moved to Jabalpore and it was here that Sulochana did her school­ing. She also took an active part in school dramatics. After some time the family was transferred to Bombay and here her younger sister, Kamla, was spotted by Sohrab Modi, a friend of their father’s, and given a role as a child star in Modi’s picture Jailor (1938).

Once Sulochana happened to visit the sets one day and after watching her sister at work, She was offered a part in Harishchandra Pictures’ “Aina”-44, which she accepted. She co-starred with Trilok Kapoor. She starred in scores of films after that, among them the comedy “Ladli”-50, in which she appeared with Jairaj, and “Grahasti”-48 which was a memor­able hit and in which she play­ed with Yakub and Masood.

Sulochana acted in two Bengali pictures “Apanaela”, produced by Saroj Mukerjee and directed by Benoy Banerjee with Pradeep Kumar as her leading man, and Benoy Banerjee’s “Minoti” in which she shared stellar honors with Smriti Biswas and Paresh Banerjee. Her well known films are Chaitanya Mahaprabhu-53, Rami Dhoban-53, Shahjehan-46, Veena-48, Nav Durga-53, Jagte Raho-56, Jis desh mein Gaqnga behti hai-60, Saraswatichandra-68 etc. In all she acted in 119 films. Her first film was Shobha-42 and last film was Shabas Daddy-79. After retirement, she settled in Bombay. Sulochana Chatterjee died on 30-8-1999.

Her favorite pastime was playing with her sister’s children. She cooked, too, and knitted off and on. She was fond of English pictures , liked Ingrid Bergman and Gregory Peck and comedies. Sulochana could play Bad­minton and drove a car. A gifted linguist, she knew Bengali, her mother tongue, Hindi, English, Marathi, Punjabi, Kutchi and Guajarati. She spoke them all fluently.

Sometime back in one of my posts, I had assured that I will give the biodata of Ansari. So it is here…..Nisar Ahmed Ansari was the son of the late Dr. Ameer Ahmed Ansari. He was born on 29-8-1917 at Jhansi. His father had been serving in Military for 11 years and he expired in 1938. He was well known in Jhansi as he practiced there for 40 years.Ansari matriculated from Allahabad University in 1933. In 1935, he passed his Inter from Aligadh. By 1939 he was a graduate of Bombay University. He was keen to join films and in this, Mehboob khan helped him by recommending him for film Aasra-40, made by National Studios. It was directed by Mehboob’s assistant Chimanlal Gandhi.

By watching him, no one can ever visualise that a suave and respectable man like him can be a scheming villain . Competition for him was tough,initially when he joined the film industry ,as there were many character actors already there ,who were specialists in negative roles . But young and energetic Nisar Ahmad Ansari had faith in his potential .

He believed that it is not necessary that a villain should have thick eyebrows with roving eyes and have a permanent frown on his face. A person having negative traits may have a smiling face also ,to conceal his evil designs . Therefore in most of his movies , he was a well dressed person ,always beaming and had a friendly smile on his face . In his films , he used to be the boss of a criminal syndicate and had an army of foot soldiers who carried out dirty work on his behalf . To keep a distance between master and servant , instead of calling them by their name he used to call his cronies by their allotted numbers like Number Ten Or Number Five .

With a hit movie ‘Mangu’ , he became a director and later directed many successful movies like Black Cat ,Tower House ,Mr Lamboo ,Zara Bach Ke, Wanted etc for various producers and after he established his own banner Bundel Khand Films ,he made many memorable movies . Although he had to look after his own company and permanent staff ,he did not disappoint other filmmakers ,who wanted to have him in their movies in the role of villain. It is a fact that it was his Black Cat which helped G P Sippy to be a part of the league of big producers ,but it is also true ,Mr Sippy forgot him later and never acknowledged Mr Ansari’s contribution .

Mr N A Ansari ,was essentially a dedicated film maker and had no false illusions about his own capabilities . His movies were never lavishly made and had average production value ,but it did not deter his fans and sizable majority of film viewers ,who adored him and his pictures to patronise his movies . Those who love the movies of the golden age ,fondly remember his movies which used to have him in the role of villain ,beside good music, suspense, comedy, ,dance with a plausible story and a strong message for society ,that “Crime Never Pays”.

With producer/actor Sheikh Mukhtar, Nisar Ahmad Ansari had earlier worked as an actor in Dada, Dara & Ustad Pedro. Sheikh Mukhtar, aware of Ansari’s capability ,in 1954,offered him Mangu to direct. The big success of Mangu was a game changer for Ansari & O P Nayyar. They both were immensely benefited with the favourable outcome of the movie & its music. Mangu had predictable Jodi of Sheikh Mukhtar & Mukri ,with Nigar Sultana ,Sheila Ramani & Ansari himself, as a suave villain. Mangu had a breathtaking, thrilling climax, involving the speeding train. Some real shots, a few stock shots & rest studio shots with back projections (Aadhi Haqeeqat ,Aadha Fasana ),made the climax awe-inspiring. Unfortunately, the movie could not be preserved & the present generation has been deprived of witnessing Ansari’s first effort as director. Mangu is one of the most searched movies on youtube.

He again directed Mr Lambu, a big success, for Sheikh Mukhtar. This time with the classic beauty Suraiyya with music by O P Nayyar, but a similar tragedy happened, again. No print of the movie is available. In almost all his films N.A.Ansari played the role of an urbane & sophisticated Don. He always appeared, well dressed in impeccably tailored suits, fedora, trade mark pipe between his teeth & walking stick, in his hand.

Beside Sheikh Mukhtar,he directed movies, like Black Cat,Tower House,Jara Bach Ke,Wanted for other producers and playing the main villain .He had no qualm for working in the movies directed by other film makers & in this category, movies like Private Secretary,Fareb ,Do Thug ,Khota Paisa, Gunda,Ustad 420,Gunahon Ke Raaste can be named. Under his own banner Bundel khand Films he made Wahan Ke Log,Mulzim,Zindagi Aur Maut,Mr Murder, Jurm Aur Sazaa and Noor E Ilahi. The last one being his last production in 1976 & then he decided to hang his boots.It was a big journey for Ansari,who was discovered by Mehboob & given a role in Aasra ,released in 1941.

He could not say “No” to film maker Sultan Ahmad ,when he insisted him to appear in Dharam Kanta -1982 & later in Jai Vikranta. N.A.Ansari closed his eyes forever on 11 Jan 1993, in Canada, thousands of kilometres away from his beloved city Jhansi ,much before the release of his last movie Jai Vikranta in 1995. As an actor he did roles in 77 films, starting with Aasra-41. He directed 11 films, from Mangu-54 to Jurm aur Saza-74.

Today’s song is a female duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Shamshad begum. It is a good song. Enjoy….

This Week, That Year – 4
———————————–
20Sep – 26Sep, 2010

Post by post analysis of the weekly output – is an exercise that is getting more involved and detailed. As we progress, we are finding newer varieties and newer variations that add on to a now growing list of things to look at and check for. OK, so let us see what insight this week brings in.

Let’s first do the numbers. The challenge analysis and other details are presented in the table below. With one dot day (on 23rd Sep), this week saw as many as 34 posts. Except for one repeat, all songs are from different movies. So, 33 movies got featured that week. As many as 12 films made their debut. And of the 33 films that were showcased that week, 22 films have been yippeee’d over the past 10 years. Of the remaining 11, I am shifting two film to the twilight zone of Conditional Yippeee status, which I had proposed last week. The films are ‘Panchaayat’ from 1958 and ‘Dr Vidya’ from 1962 – I will give more details little later in write up.

I will highlight one change in notation. Last week I had proposed that for the songs which are listed for the film, but which are possibly not available in any format, will be denoted by ‘LFe’ – short for ‘Lost Forever’. Now there is a rethink about this terminology. At least one response to me was that ‘Lost Forever’ is a despairing notation, putting a sort of finality to the issue. So I propose to change this terminology to ‘UT’ indicating that the song is ‘Untraceable’ at least for now.

Two major milestones were announced this week. With the sixth song posted on 20th Sep, 2010, the blog reached the 3000th post. Given where we were at that time, ten years back, this was an enviable milestone in itself. Looking back, it may seem not very significant, on account of where we have now reached. But at that time, breaching the 3000 barrier was a great event. With the same song, we also had the first 1000th milestone for an individual artist. This very same song also became the 1000th song by Lata ji, posted on our blog. This was the first such accomplishment on the blog, for an artist.

We had just one guest post this week. Raja ji has done the post for the 3000th song plus the 1000th song of Lata Mangeshkar.

This week, we see many interesting variations and differences in the information that is available about the songs contained in specific films. Here are the details,

  1. ‘Deewaana’ (1952) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs for this film. Then the footnote to this film indicates that one more song was recorded for this film in the voice of Shamshad Begum. The inference to be drawn is that this 9th song is an unused song from this film. This song is also available, and has been posted on our blog.
  2. ‘Panchaayat’ (1958) – the gap in information is quite remarkable here. There is one song listed in Geet Kosh that is simply not traceable anywhere. The words of the song are “Main Ye Soch Kar Us Ke Dar Se Utha Tha”. Ah yes, rings a bell. This song appears in the 1964 film ‘Haqeeqat’. I replayed the movie to check, but did not find even a snippet of this song.
    However, viewing the film gave me some good information. The theme song of this film, “Mil Ke Baitho Jodo Bandhan” is a multi part song that appears in the film five times. We have this song on the blog, but we only have the portion that is heard in background as the film titles are being presented on screen. This song recurs on four more occasions later in the film.
    So two updates to this film that must be put on the blog. First, the theme song has to be updated for all the multi part segments. Second, then this film should be declared Conditional Yippeee, because the song “Main Ye Soch Kar. . .”, in all likelihood will remain untraceable, as far as this film is concerned.
  3. ‘Parwaana’ (1947) – Geet Kosh lists 9 songs, whereas we on the blog had added two more which we have extracted from the film soundtrack. One of them – “Balam To Pe Sabar Pade” is a very special song. This is the very last recording of KL Saigal Sb. It is an incomplete recording. However, the director has used this as a background song near the end of the film, by modifying the situations somewhat.
  4. ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ (1963) – Geet Kosh lists 8 songs, whereas in the film there is one more song, actually a qawwaali, in the voice of Shamshad Begum and Usha Mangeshkar. So on the blog, we have one more song than the list in Geet Kosh.
  5. ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ (1960) – On the blog we have one additional song, actually a snippet that is played at the end of the film. This snippet is not listed in the Geet Kosh.
  6. ‘Dr Vidya’ (1962) – This song list mismatch here is quite confusing. There are seven songs listed in the Geet Kosh, out of which the song a serial no. 2 “Yahi Din Hain Bhanware Mann Arey Tum Nahin Samajhte” is not traceable. It does not appear to match with any other song in the film. And then there are two songs in the film which are not listed in the Geet Kosh. There is a fun qawwaali – “Yoon Hans Hans Kar Dekho Na Idhar”, which is performed on screen by Helen and Prem Chopra. And then there is this romantic song of promises to meet again – “Main Kal Phir Miloongi Isi Gulsitaan Mein”. So we have 8 songs of this film already posted, and there is one still pending whose fate is not known. Possibly then ‘Dr Vidya’ also merits to declared Conditional Yippeee.
  7. ‘Sone Ki Chidiya’ (1958) – This film has 8 songs listed in the Geet Kosh. However, on our blog, we have one more additional song posted, which is essentially a poem rendition.
  8. ‘Doctor’ (1941) – I had mentioned about this film in the previous episode of this series. There is a small bit of confusion in the song list of this film in the Geet Kosh. GK lists 11 songs for this film. This film was declared as Yippeee’d on 29th August, 2014. In that post, Atul ji had written that ten songs of this film are already posted, and the eleventh song was being posted, declaring this film to be Yippeee’d. However, as we examine the lists, there is a bit of confusion that prevails overall.
    For starters, the song “Aai Nit Nai Rut Ki Bahaar” is listed twice in GK, once with Ila Ghosh as the singer, and once with Pankaj Mullick as the singer. This threw me off so completely, that I spent three four days two weeks ago, trying to trace the Pankaj Babu version of this song. Most responses I got from within the circle of collector friends was that this song does not exist. Secondly, the iconic Pankaj Babu song – “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar” is not listed in GK. I went over the GK entries in detail, including the addenda and the corrigenda. But could locate no other information.
    After some back and forth discussions, it is concluded that there is an error in the GK listings, in that the song listed in GK at serial no. 11 – “Aayi Nit Nari Rut Ki Bahaar” in the voice of Pankaj Babu, is incorrect, and that the words of this song should be “Aayi Bahaar Aaj Aayi Bahaar”. If this change is made, then the listings can be reconciled correctly.
    There is still one more variation in the GK listing and the blog list. The GK listing shows the two songs viz. “Kab Tak Niraasha Ki Andhiyaari” and “Bhai Jagat Ujiyaari Dekho” as two separate songs. On our blog, these two songs appear in the same post, so essentially the blog list does not show the latter song.

Now a word about the song covered in this post. The film is ‘Zindagi Ya Toofaan’ from 1958. As per the Geet Kosh, this film has 10 songs listed. All the songs come from the pen of J Nakshab, a name that we are also familiar as Nakshab Jarchavi. Music is composed by Nashaad.

The film is produced under the banner of Serafim Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Nakshab Jarchavi, the lyricist. The cast of actors is briefly given as Nutan, Pradeep Kumar, Om Prakash, Minoo Mumtaz, Johnny Walker, and Yakub. The film tells the story about the love of a young man, role played by Pradeep Kumar, for a dancing girl, role played by Nutan. Nine songs of this film are already posted here on our blog. This is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board.

The song itself is a wonderful expression in words about the exchanges that happen between the lover and the beloved. Each couplet, each line is such a beautiful visualization of that relationship. The video clip for this song could not be located. So it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. Given the music and rendition, one can surmise that this song is presented as a mujra on screen. Expectedly, the song is performed by Nutan and Minoo Mumtaz. Both are dancing girls entertaining the guests, which would include Praeep Kumar and Yakub.

This wonderful ghazal presented as a mujra, is the tenth and the final song of this film to come on board, and we can declare this film to be Yippeee’d now.

Lyrics

kya kya nigaah e shauk luti hai haya ke haa..aath
aaaa aaaaa aaaaaaa
ye kya hua ke ruk gaye seene tak aa ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath
dekha mujhe to chhod diye muskura ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath

aaaaa aaaaa
baaton me aise ho gaye madhhosh be-piye
baaton me aise ho gaye madhhosh be-piye
baaton me aise ho gaye madhhosh be-piye
afsanaa ghair ka wo samajh kar suna kiye
afsanaa ghair ka wo samajh kar suna kiye
aaya jo mera naam
to bas uth ke chal diye
aaya jo mera naam to bas uth ke chal diye
jhunjhala ke taish khaa ke bigad ke chhuda ke haath
jhunjhala ke taish khaa ke bigad ke chhuda ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath
dekha mujhe to chhod diye muskara ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath

parda tha par naqaab se kuchh husn chhan pada
parda tha par naqaab se kuchh husn chhan pada
parda tha par naqaab se kuchh husn chhan pada
bekal huye to reh gaya sab baankpan pada
bekal huye to reh gaya sab baankpan pada
shikvon ka jab jawab na kuchh un se ban pada
shikvon ka jab jawab na kuchh un se ban pada
gardan me meri daal diye muskura ke haath
gardan me meri daal diye muskura ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath
dekha mujhe to chhod diye muskara ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye utha ke haath

aaaa aaaa aaaaa aaaaa
saaqi ko samjhe ye nahin har aadmi ka kaam
saaqi ko samjhe ye nahin har aadmi ka kaam
saaqi ko samjhe ye nahin har aadmi ka kaam
nakshab ko kis ada se inaayat kiya tha jaam
nakshab ko kis ada se inaayat kiya tha jaam
aaaa aaaaa
dena kisi ka saaghar e mai yaad hai nizaam
dena kisi ka saaghar e mai yaad hai nizaam
munh pher kar udhar ko idhar ko badha ke haath
munh pher kar udhar ko idhar ko badha ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye uthaa ke haath
dekha mujhe to chhod diye muskara ke haath
angdaai bhi wo lene na paaye uthaa ke haa..aa..aath

क्या क्या निगाह ए शौक लुटी है हया के हा॰॰आथ
आsss आsss आssssss
ये क्या हुआ के रुक गए सीने तक आ के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आsss आsss
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
बातों में ऐसे हो गए मदहोश बे-पिये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
अफ़साना ग़ैर का वो समझ कर सुना किये
आया जो मेरा नाम
तो बस उठ के चल दिये
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
झुँझला के तैश खा के बिगड़ के छुड़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
पर्दा था पर नक़ाब से कुछ हुस्न छन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
बेकल हुये तो रेह गया सब बांकपन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
शिकवों का जब जवाब ना कुछ उनसे बन पड़ा
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
गर्दन में मेरी डाल दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ

आss आss आsss आssss
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
साक़ि को समझे ये नहीं हर आदमी का काम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
नक़शब को किस अदा से इनायत किया था जाम
आss आssss
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
देना किसी का साग़र ए मय याद है निज़ाम
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
मुंह फेर कर उधर को इधर को बढ़ा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हाथ
देखा मुझे तो छोड़ दिये मुस्कुरा के हाथ
अंगड़ाई भी वो लेने ना पाये उठा के हा॰॰आथ

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is like cherry picking a hit parade – the repeat songs are almost always the popular hit songs that have made a serious mark on the collective memory of the audiences and lovers of Hindi films and film songs. And this song is no exception. Rather this song has been so popular – with its catchy lyrics and a very hummable melody – that one hears this song being used in many different avatars outside of the film frame – remixes, revival melodies, even background music for recorded dance performances. One can find such samples online on YT.

This iconic song, originally from the 1968 film – ‘Kismat’, has been reused in the 2011 film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. Whereas the original song was a disguise cum diversion song, in a situation where the lead pair is trying to get away from a group of bad-men, in the newer film, this song is being used as a wooing-cum-proposal-making song. The occasion is a wedding of a friend of the leading lady. Tanuja (Kangana Ranaut) aka Tanu is trying to muster up courage to proposition Manu, who appears to be too shy and unprepared to take a step towards a relationship. Using the wedding scenario as an excuse, Tanu gets drunk (or appears to get drunk). The situation develops and reaches this song in a couple of minutes, and in the guise of this song, Tanu finally gets to speak her heart out to Manu,

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan

Please note that in this re-use, the original song has been presented as it is, the only one change is that two stanzas have been used instead of 3. So what we hear in this song are the original voices of Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum, the mukhda and antara lines suitably edited to present a shorter version.

The info about this reuse has been shared with me by Anekant ji. He has been a regular contributor and there is still a few more songs in my pending list for this series, that have been suggested by him.

The original song from the film ‘Kismat’ came on to this blog on 9th February, 2009. It can be accessed here – “Kajra Mohabbat Wala, Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala“.

Check out this resue, and witness an energetic on screen performance by Kangana, who, under the supposed influence of alcohol, is desirous of presenting a Kanpuria dance for the occasion. And enjoy.

Song – Kajra Mohabbat Wala Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala  (Tanu Weds Manu) (2011) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

aayi ho kahaan se gori
aankhon me pyaar le ke
aayi ho kahaan se gori

aankhon me pyaar le ke
chadhti jawaani ki ye pehli bahaar leke
dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

jhumka bareli wala
kaano me aisa daala
jhumke ne le li meri jaan
hay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
dil ko jalaane waale dil ka qaraar maangoon
sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
चढ़ती जवानी की ये
पहली बहार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
झुमका बरेली वाला
कानों में ऐसा डाला
झुमके ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
दिल को जलाने वाले दिल का क़रार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
किस्मत बना दे मेरी
दुनिया बसा दे मेरी
कर लै सगाई मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

Today’s song is from the film Gharana(1961), a movie made by the famous Gemini Studios, Madras. The producer/director was S S Vasan- called the ‘Cecil B Demil’ of India, after his epic trend setter film Chandralekha way back in 1948. It was from this film that Hindi films started being made in south. In the beginning, it was only remakes of successful and Hit south films. Once this formula proved to be profitable, remakes of hit South Indian films began to constitute almost 80% of the Hindi films being made in south.
