I was in the midst of writing a short write-up on a song from the film ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939) produced under the banner of New Theatres. The film was not available to view in DVD/VCD format. Luckily, I could get a short review of the film in February 1940 issue of  ‘Filmindia’ magazine which gave me some indication as to the theme of the story. The story reminded me of the film ‘Kangan’ (1939) produced under the banner of Bombay Talkies, as I had watched the 40-minute snippet of the film on YT a few days back.

Both these films had been released in 1939 with a couple of month’s gap, ‘Kangan’ (1939) being released first. The story of both these films had, more or less, the same familiar theme – wealthy fathers with conservative outlook, the sons with a modern outlook having love affairs with girls from the poor family. Obviously, the conservative fathers would oppose such an alliance, to the hilt. In both the films, the sons of rich fathers were prepared to forgo the inheritance of the wealth from the fathers for marrying the girls of their choice from the poor family. The end of both these films seems to be meek affairs. In the case of ‘Kangan’ (1939), the father realises his wrong doings from reading a novel written by none other than his son (Ashok Kumar) reflecting his own life story and agrees for the marriage with his fiancee (Leela Chitnis). In ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939), the story writer finds an easy way out by making the father to die because of ill health so that the son (Najam-ul-Hasan) marries his fiancee (Kanan Devi).

And what were the audiences’ reactions to both these films? If I go by the box office discussions in ‘Filmindia’ magazines, ‘Kangan’ (1939) was a runway hit while ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ (1939) did not make money for New Theatres. In my view, songs of the latter film was more pleasing to the ears than the songs from the former film. So even with Kanan Devi as the actor-singer and RC Boral as the music director, ‘Jawaani Ki Reet’ could not be salvaged at the box office.

I am presenting the song ‘Ban Mein Bhi Jo Mehke Phool’ from the film, sung by Kanan Devi. The song written by Aarzoo Lucknowi is set to music by RC Boral. As I said earlier, the songs from the film, especially those rendered by Kanan Devi are very melodious and this song is no exception.

The song starts with a 40 seconds’ musical prelude. There are three music interludes between mukhda and antaras which give an impression of a symphony orchestra. RC Boral, and Pankaj  Mullick, his contemporary at New Theatres, seem to be very much influenced by the symphony orchestra which used be played in a few top hotels in Calcutta (Kolkata) those days including the famous orchestra of F. Casanovas in the Grand Hotel.

By the way the tune of the 40 seconds’ prelude of this song seems to inspire Roshan while composing the song ‘Chali Jaa Chali Jaa Chhod Ke Duniya’ in the film ‘Humlog’ (1951).


Song – Ban Main Bhi Jo Mehke Phool (Jawaani Ki Reet) (1939) Singer – Kannan Devi, Lyrics – Aarzoo Lucknavi, MD – RC Boral

Lyrics

ban mein bhi jo mehke phool

saagar paas panchhi bola

ghar kaa aangan sukh ka paalan
sab ko bhulaana hi  hoga
ghar kaa aangan sukh ka paalan

Sureeli Suman – 15
———————–

The original HMV of EMI group was renamed RPG, when purchased by the Goenka Group. Later on in 2000, this major music producing company was aptly named as ‘Sa Re Ga Ma’. During earlier years, it used to sponsor great artists to produce many non-film music albums. Later on, under the false pretext of changing music trends, but mainly due to commercial angles, such publications along with classical music albums ware slowly reduced to very near zero.

‘Swar Bahar’ – a melodious treat for music lovers was released in 1970. Music Director Shyam Sharma composed ten superb songs for Suman Kalyanpur. The album had two Meera Bhajans and eight ‘bhaav geets’ penned by Anjaan and Yogesh, six and two respectively.

Suman Kalyanpur (aka Suman Hemmady), born on 28th January 1937, is one of the best-known and respected playback singers of Indian cinema. Her voice was often mis-identified as that of Lata Mangeshkar. Her career started in 1954 and she was a very popular singer in the 1960s and 1970s. She has been somewhat unfortunate as she never won the National Film Award or Filmfare Award for singing. Yet, she is still considered among the popular singers of her era.

She has sung a total of 857 Hindi songs. (Correct me if wrong, as this data is copied from Internet.) Besides, she has recorded songs for movies in several other Indian languages viz., Marathi, Assamese, Gujarati, Kannada, Bhojpuri, Rajasthani, Bengali, Oriya, Punjabi etc. She has sung many non-film songs, and I have been presenting them, one by one, at my pace.

This ‘birhan’ song is the eighth, out of ten, from ‘Swar Bahar’.  Suman ji has brought into expression, all the feelings that the lyrics describe. By Hari Ichha, the two remaining gems will follow soon.

 


Song – Raat Suhaag Ki Jaag Ke Dhal Gayi (Suman Kalyanpur NFS) (1970) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD– Shyam Sharma

Lyrics

raat suhaag ki
jaag ke dhhal gayee
aaye na chitchor
sej ki kaliyan
taane maare
gori re ab to ho gayi bhor
gori re ab to ho gayi bhor

mann ko chhede
pyaas nigodi
mann ko chhede
pyaas nigodi
kasak sahi na jaaye
dheeraj man ka
bikhar na jaaye
tod ke laaj ki resham dor
gori re ab to ho gayee bhor
 
har aahat pe
dhhalke aanchal
har aahat pe
dhhalke aanchal
ye bindiya akulaaye
par bujh jaaye
dhadkan dil ki
dekh ke soone dwaar ki or
gori re ab to ho gayee bhor
 
thak ke soye
sapne kunwaare
thak ke soye
sapne kunwaare
soyee adhuri aas
so naa sakey
do birhi naina
soney na de ye mann ka shor
gori re ab to ho gayee bhor

raat suhaag ki
jaag ke dhhal gayi
aaye na chitchor

रात सुहाग की
जाग के ढल गई
आए ना चितचोर
सेज की कलियाँ
ताने मारें
गोरी रे अब तो हो गई भोर
गोरी रे अब तो हो गई भोर

मन को छेड़े
प्यास निगोड़ी
मन को छेड़े
प्यास निगोड़ी
कसक सही ना जाये
धीरज मन का
बिखर ना जाये
तोड़ के लाज की रेशम डोर
गोरी रे अब तो हो गई भोर

हर आहट पे
ढलके आँचल
हर आहट पे
ढलके आँचल
ये बिंदिया अकुलाए
पर बुझ जाये
धड़कन दिल की
देख के सूने द्वार की ओर
गोरी रे अब तो हो गई भोर

थक के सोये
सपने कुँवारे
थक के सोये
सपने कुँवारे
सोई अधूरी आस
सो ना सके
दो बिरही नैना
सोने न दे ये मन का शोर
गोरी रे अब तो हो गई भोर

रात सुहाग की
जाग के ढल गई
आए ना चितचोर

Missing Films of 1960s – 24
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

To each his due – that is an adage that basically covers all the destinies, whether right or wrong, whether happy or sad. The struggle to definitively define whether success is destined, or whether it can be achieved through hard work, is a tough task indeed. Logic and arguments work both ways. Believers of destiny even go as far to propound that one will put hard work in life, because that is what the destiny says should be. And sometimes one tends to lean towards that argument – for there are numerous cases we know of people successful without having to put in too much hard work, or having displayed much capabilities. And of course, there are cases, also very numerous, where highly capable people are seen putting in lot of hard work most of their lives, but still, the coveted fruits of success elude them. And so, after witnessing so many such seemingly unfortunate lives, living through such seemingly unfair circumstances, one is eventually resigned to say – to each his due.

It has been discussed in these pages very often, as to how life has dealt a losing proposition to artists whose talent was much more than the recognition and rewards they achieved. Their careers seemingly did not last too long. And their work usually never got highlighted in A grade cinema. But when we come across their creations and performances, the mind asks “why”.  Why is it that these artists never made it to A grade cinema, despite having demonstrated capabilities for the same. The answers, are difficult to find.

Remembering Robin Bannerji, one such talented music director, on the anniversary of his passing away (July 27th).

Robin had a short career that lasted little over a decade. And he passed away at a relatively young age, beset by problems of health, penury and family misfortunes. He got his first break, working as an assistant to Hemant Kumar, in the 1960 film ‘Masoom’. Hemant Kumar composed one song for this film, and then he departed on a trip outside India. All the remaining songs were then composed and completed  by Robin.

His films number just about twenty, spread across thirteen years of active work. We see no more of his work after 1973. And then, after another 13 years, he passed away in 1986.

His work, and his creations, speak for themselves. Almost all his films are categorized as ‘C’ grade. But the songs, and the melody – are an instant head turner. A number of his songs that got popular, being played on radio, are wonderful memories that still haunt the alleyways of the mind. But the more attractive thing is the unheard and unknown songs that turn out to be such wonderful gems. A the music of a few of his films is not available at all. Films like  ‘Junglee Raja’ (1963), ‘Hukam Ka Ikka’ (1964), ‘Flying Circus’ (1965) and ‘London Express’ (1968), are simply not traceable at this time.

Today, I present this wonderful melody from the 1966 film ‘Rustam Kaun’ – one of the films listed in Khyati Ben’s list of missing films of 1960s. The words are from the pen of Yogesh Gaur. Interestingly, it seems that Robin has maximum number of films working with this songwriter. Together they have appeared in seven of Robin Bannerji’s films, that amounts to one third of all the films that he has done.

‘Rustam Kaun’ is a production from the banner of Amrit Kala Mandir, Bombay and is directed by Dharam Kumar. The star cast includes Randhawa, Malika, Shaam Kumar, Mumtaz, Kamal Mehra, Jagdeep, Tun Tun, Aruna Irani, Rajmala, Meenakshi, Jagdish etc. The list also includes the names like Samson, Hercules, Hanuman and Joginder Singh – apparently all wrestlers. The list also includes Shakila Banu Bhopali, although her name does not appear as a singer in the song list.  (There is one qawwaali in this film which is rendered by Suman Kalyanpur and Manna Dey, onscreen performed by Jagdeep and Shakila Banu Bhopali).

On screen, this song is performed by Malika. A love song, on the same theme as another song posted couple of days ago, saying what effect the presence of the lover has on the mind and heart of the beloved (“Hum Ne Chaaha Magar Keh Na Paaye“). Malika is expressing these sentiments to Randhawa. The song is lovely – the words, the music, the rendition – all of it. Except for the on screen performance. The on screen antics of the lady, put a lie to the sentiments being expressed. One of those wonderful songs that are recommended as – to be heard only. So try, listen to it without paying attention to the visuals.:)

 

 

Song – Hum Chaahen Na Chaahen Phir Bhi Kabhi (Rustam Kaun) (1966) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Robin Bannerji

Lyrics

hum chaahe na chaahen
phir bhi kabhi
wo saamne jab aa jaate hain
har baar nazar jhuk jaati hai
har baar kadam ruk jaate hain
har baar kadam ruk jaate hain
hum chaahe na chaahen
phir bhi kabhi

hum bhool se shaayad ulfat ki
baahon mein chale aaye hain
hum bhool se shaayad ulfat ki
baahon mein chale aaye hain
anjaan safar ki anjaani
raahon mein chale aaye hain
ab kya hoga kyonkar hoga
ye soch ke ghabra jaate hain
ye soch ke ghabra jaate hain
hum chaahe na chaahen
phir bhi kabhi

kya baat hai kyon mere dil ke
jazbaat bikhar jaate hain
kya baat hai kyon mere dil ke
jazbaat bikhar jaate hain
badle badle se kyon apne
andaaz nazar aate hain
har aahat par apne dil ki
khud chaunk ke balkha jaate hain
khud chaunk ke balkha jaate hain
hum chaahe na chaahen
phir bhi kabhi

ye kaisi anokhi baat hui
uljhan mein ulajh jaate hain
ye kaisi anokhi baat hui
uljhan mein ulajh jaate hain
ye uljhan aur ulajhti hai
jitna isey suljhaate hain
begaane hain wo lekin ab to
hum khud se bhi sharma jaate hain
hum khud se bhi sharma jaate hain
hum chaahe na chaahen
phir bhi kabhi

हम चाहे ना चाहें
फिर भी कभी
वो सामने जब आ जाते हैं
हर बार नज़र झुक जाती है
हर बार कदम रुक जाते हैं
हर बार कदम रुक जाते हैं
हम चाहे ना चाहें
फिर भी कभी

हम भूल से शायद उलफत की
बाहों में चले आए हैं
हम भूल से शायद उलफत की
बाहों में चले आए हैं
अंजान सफर की अनजानी
राहों में चले आए हैं
अब क्या होगा क्योंकर होगा
ये सोच के घबरा जाते हैं
ये सोच के घबरा जाते हैं
हम चाहे ना चाहें
फिर भी कभी

क्या बात है क्यों मेरे दिल के
जज़्बात बिखर जाते हैं
क्या बात है क्यों मेरे दिल के
जज़्बात बिखर जाते हैं
बदले बदले से क्यों अपने
अंदाज़ नज़र आते हैं
हर आहट पर अपने दिल की
खुद चौंक के बलखा जाते हैं
खुद चौंक के बलखा जाते हैं
हम चाहे ना चाहें
फिर भी कभी

ये कैसी अनोखी बात हुई
उलझन में उलझ जाते हैं
ये कैसी अनोखी बात हुई
उलझन में उलझ जाते हैं
ये उलझन और उलझती है
जितना इसे सुलझाते हैं
बेगाने हैं वो लेकिन अब तो
हम खुद से शर्मा जाते हैं
हम खुद से शर्मा जाते हैं
हम चाहे ना चाहें
फिर भी कभी

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘त’
“तुम्हीं से हुई है शुरू और तुम्हीं पे सनम खत्म होगी कहानी हमारी”

What a gem of a delight this song is, from the 1969 film ‘Mera Dost’. As we continue to delve and search, we continue to come across as yet un-posted songs that are simply out of this world. Such wonders will not cease, I am sure for quite some time yet.

Rafi Sb is at his soft romantic best in this song, which is written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Lakshmikant Pyaarelal. The film is apparently a Sheikh Mukhtar genre, as is clear from the star cast listing. The list of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, Mumtaz, M Rajan, Aruna Irani, Mukri, KN Singh, Raj Mehra, Durga Khote, Ratna and Kamal Kapoor, amongst others.

There is a total of six songs in this film. This is one of the two solo songs by Rafi Sb. I have not been able to locate any video of this song, and so I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to kindly add more information about the song and the film.

As I was listening and writing down the lyrics, I realized that this is a birthday song, as becomes apparent from the lines in the last antaraa. The thing that captures you the most is the rendition by Rafi Sb. The soft and the measured pace is so expressive, and so engaging. As are the words – so wonderfully crafted.

agar bas mein ye dil hota to chup rehte…
…  …

magar kya karen ab zubaan e nazar se
lagi bolne be-zubaani hamaari

Enjoy this lovely addition to this series.

Rafi Sb forever.

Song – Tumhin Se Hui Hai Shuru Aur Tumhin Pe Sanam Khatm Hogi Kahaani Hamaari (Mera Dost) (1969) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

agar bas mein
agar bas mein
ye dil hota

sanam khatm hogi kahaani hamaari
kisi gair se hum
mohabbat karen to
khuda chheen le
zindgaani hamaari
tumhin se hui hai

तुम्हीं से हुई है
शुरू और तुम्हीं पे
सनम खत्म होगी कहानी हमारी
तुम्हीं से हुई है
शुरू और तुम्हीं पे
सनम खत्म होगी कहानी हमारी
किसी ग़ैर से हम
मोहब्बत करें तो
खुदा छीन ले
ज़िंदगानी हमारी
तुम्हीं से हुई है

यही ज़ुल्फें
यही नज़रें
यही दर है हमारा
जहां छोड़ें
मगर छोड़ें

कसम ले लो

किसी ग़ैर से हम
मोहब्बत करें तो
खुदा छीन ले
ज़िंदगानी हमारी

एक आवाज़॰॰॰
अब सो गई है
तन्हाइओं में
सिर्फ याद बाकी है

याद बाकी है
उस आवाज़ की
जो दीप के संग जली
जल जल के मरी
कुछ कह ना सकी
और कुछ कहा
तो बस यही
कोई सुने या ना सुने
हम हाल ए दिल सुनाएँगे

यूं तो वो दिन भी थे
बहार आई थी दिल का करार ले के
कलियों को चूमती थी
तारों से खेलती थी
चाँद भी मुस्काया था
जिया भी लहराया था
फूल बगिया में भँवरा आया था
और गुनगुनाया था
निगाहों से दिल में चले आइएगा
दिल धड़का अंगड़ाई आने लगी
और दिल ने कहा
मुझको अपने गले लगा लो
ए मेरे हमराही

फिर ज़माना बदला
बेमुरव्वत बेवफा हुआ
बेगाना ए दिल हुआ
वादा हमसे किया
हमें दम दिया
घर सौतन के गया
और पूछा
ए दिल बता हम कहाँ आ गए
और दिल ने कहा
मेरे आंसुओं पे न मुस्कुरा
कब तक बने रहेंगे
ज़ुल्मों का हम निशाना
नहीं अच्छा है प्यार भरे दिल को सताना
आँसू भी पिये
ताने भी सहे
और फिर
ज़िंदगी की हद से भी गुज़र गए
अब तो मेरे देवता
तुम ही हो मेरा सहारा

सब कहते ही रह गए
जल्दी जल्दी ना करो
इल्तजा तो ये थी के
शमा गुल कर के न जा
पर अब जानते हैं
वो ना आएंगे पलट कर
उन्हें लाख हम बुलाएँ

आँखों आँखों में हर एक रात गुज़र जाएगी
तन्हाइओं में
तुम्हारी याद आएगी
बहुत याद आएगी

अल्विदा

“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
