“Shagoofa”(1953) was produced under the banner of P N Films ( Premnath’s home production) and it was directed by H S Rawail. The movie had Premnath, Beena Rai, Bipin Gupta, Sundar, Purnima, Yashodara Katju, Baby Naaz etc in it.

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the blog in the past. Here is the fifth song from this movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Sundar and Geeta Dutt. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. This light hearted romantic song is a parody of the well known song-“Maine laakhon ke bol sahe sanwariya tere liye ” from “Leela”(1947), which was also composed by C Ramchandra.

This song was clearly picturised on Sundar and a lady playing his romantic angle in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this lady.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keen ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Kaise khel muhabbat mein khele(Shagoofa)(1953) Singers-Sundar, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

sukh chhod ke ye dukh jhele sitamgar tere liye
sukh chhod ke ye dukh jhele

sitamgar haan haan
sitamgar tere liye
maine kyaa kyaa naa paapad bele

kaise khel mohabbat mein khele sitamgar tere liye
maine kyaa kyaa naa paapad bele

Today (15 august 2017) is the 71st Independence day of India.

This is the tenth independence day for the blog. In addition, we have also had nine republic days. We have discussed a few patriotic songs on all these 17 national days. So one can imagine the number of patriotic songs that we have covered in the blog so far. The count of patriotic songs in the blog shows 106 songs as of now !

While discussing songs from movies, we sometimes come across special songs that are suitable songs for special occasions. Same was the case with this song from “Samundar”(1957). In my bid to cover all the eight songs from the movie, seven songs have been covered. The eighth song was deferred to be covered on Indepence day because it is suitable song for such an occasion.

“Samundar” (1957) was produced and directed by Premnath for Premnath Films. The movie was an all family affair. Premnath, Bina Rai (his wife), Rajendranath (his brother) figured in the movie. Others in the cast were Nishi, Tuntun, Anmol Krishan, Ram Avtar, Ullas, Heeralal, Sundar, Ridkoo, Paul Sharma, Rajan Kapoor, Habeeb, Azeem, Mahesh, Manohar, Niranjan etc.

Here is this eighth and final song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt, Rafi and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Madan Mohan.

The song is picturised as a “ship” song populated by seafaring sailors led by Premnath. Premnath sings in Rafi’s voice. I am unable to identify the person who lip syncs in Geeta Dutt’s voice. In any case, Geeta Dutt’s voice is mainly heard alongwith the chorus in this song.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keen ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as aplicable.

With this song, “Samundar”(1957) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Independence day.

Today (15 august 2017) is the 71st independence day of India.

This is the 10st independence day for this blog. We have discussed all well known independence day songs during the past occasions. But no, we have not run out of songs for the occasions. We still have quite a few such songs up our sleeve.

Some of these songs are rare songs and most music lovers will hear them for the first time.

“Aahuti”(1950) also known as “Anokhi Qurbaani” was directed by Kulbhushan for Sansaar Movietone Limited, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjeet Kumari, sapru, Premkant, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Cuckoo, Nautiyal, Sudhir, Pitu, Khan Chaand, Mukul, Ratan Gaurang, Bhajanlal, Shyama, Krishna Rani, Neelam, Indra, Indubala, Uma, Gulnar Shirazi, Kathana etc in it.

This social movie had twelve songs in it, and they are as obscure as the movie itself.

Two songs from “Aahuti”(1950) have been covered in the past. While going through the other songs of the movie, I came across this patriaotic Aazaadi song from the movie and kept it in hold to be discussed during the independence day.

HFGK mentions this song as sung by Geeta Roy and chorus. On listening t the song, I feel that this song has two male voices as well, which are that of S D Batish annd Shankar Das Gupta, apart from chorus. I request our knowledgeable readers to help confirm/ refute my identification of the male voices.

Tandon is the lyricist. Music is composed by D C Dutt.

I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keene eras to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as aplicable.

I take this opportunity to greet one and all and wish them a very happy independence day.

“Bijli”(1950) was directed by Sushil Sahu for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Ramesh Gupta, Sitara, Vilas Mohbe, Paro, Badri Prasd, Sushir Sahu, Amirbai Karnataki, Satya Narayan, Narbada Shankar, C L Shah, Kanta, Kazmi etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (10 august 2017) is the 67th remembrance day of Khemchand Prakash ( 12 december 1907- 10 august 1950). On this occasion, here is a song from “Bijli”(1950).

This song is sung by two female singers. HFKG mentions them as Geeta Roy and Paro, whereas the uploader of the song mentions them as Shamshad Begam and Paro. But I think that the voices in the song are of two singers who are not Geeta Roy (alater Dutt), Shamshad Begam or Paro devi, three singers whose voices are quite distinctive and different from the voices in the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voices that sound familiar.

PS-Now Sudhir Jee has fished out a clearer version of this song from his collection. There the voices are very clear and they unmistakably belong to Paro and Geeta Roy. I thank Sudhir Jee for helping clarify matters.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This is and lovely song which sounds like a stage performance song where a city slicker lady complains that she is uncomfortable in the village of her beue and she asks him to take her to Bombay. Very cute and justifiable feelings that most people can readily identify with. I too used to groan like this when I found myself going to my native place (a village) during my younger days. 🙂


Song-O mora jiya ghabraaye tere chhote se gaaon mein(Bijli)(1950) Singers-Paro Devi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

mora jiya ghabraaye
uf mora jiya ghabraaye

balam is jail se chhuda de
dhuaan gaadi pe baitha de
chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk pahuncha de
o mora jiya ghabraaye

paani bikta mol
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
chup chhail chhabeele
tera bhola jiya bharma den
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

arre ae

haaye mora jiya ghabraaye

aur pyaar ki baaten
zara ghoonghat ki oat muska de
ho mera kaha maan

gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

“Batwaara”(1961) was directed by Karunesh Thakur for Deep and Sandeep Productions, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Nirupa Roy, Rehman, Shashikala, Jawahar Kaul, Jabeen Jaleel, Leela Chitnis, Wasti, Jagdeesh Sethi etc in it.

This tear jerker “social” movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Batwaara”(1961) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by S Madan.

The song is picturised as a wedding ritual dance song, as far as I can tell. The song is picturised on a lady dressed as a male (singing in Geeta Dutt’s voice) teasing Sheila Vaz (singing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice) with lots of other ladies singing in chorus. This performance is being watched by almost all other charaters in the movie who form the joint family.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice.

“Missing the beloved” cum “separation” song form quite important genre of songs in Hindi movies. This blog has close to three hundred songs that fall under this category of “missing the beloved”.

In such songs, it is the lady who is mostly missing her beloved. She tends to miss him the most in the season of “Saawan”. She tends to miss him more in the late hours that say during the day hours.

In olden days, the feeling of “missing” the beloved was more complete that what it is today. Those days, keeping in contact with the beloved was rather difficult. One could send letters but that was a time consuming process and in most cases one was not even sure of getting a reply.

These days, keeping in contact with one’s beloved is so easy. We all have our mobiles and we can keep in contact with our near and dear one’s almost on a regular basis. So, I must say that technology has made separation of one’s beloved rather more bearable these days.

Just think of the past when the luxury of instant communication with others was not avaialble even for the mightiest. Under such circumstances, singing a song of the relevant genre was one of the ways of bearing the separation.

Here is a “missing the beloved” genre of song from “Nakhre”(1951).

“Nakhre”(1951) was produced by Mohanlal Wahai and directed by Surya Kumar for Paro Pictures, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Geeta Bali, Nasir Khan, Jeewan, David, Heera Sawant, Vijaya, Badri Prasad, Ramesh, Laxmanrao, M S Pathak, Paro etc in it.

There were ten songs in this movie that were sung by eight singers and penned by four lyricists. Three songs from the movie has been discussed in the blog. The song under discussion is the fourth song from “Nakhre”(1951) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

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


Song-Andhiyaari kaari raat mein (Nakhre)(1951) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
tum door wahaan
majboor yahaan
main baithi aas lagaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
bas ye falak dikhla ke jhalak
koi man ki pyaas bujhaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
hui kab ki khadi
ginti hai ghadi
aur ghadiyaan beeti jaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

“Dr Shaitaan”(1960) was produced by Ram Kumar and it was directed by Shriram Bohra for Bohra Brothers production, Bombay. The movie had Premnath, Shakila, Sheikh Mukhtar, Sunder, Tiwari, Sheikh, Helen, Nasreen, Nazi, Indira, Ramkumar, Rajan Kapoor, Ramlal, Mahendra, Maqbool, Mirajkar, Kamaol Sharma etc in it.

This movie was a crime thriller. It had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been discussed in the past.

I notice that all the songs in this movie were “western” songs as befitting a crime movie of 1950s.

Here is the fourth song from “Dr Shaitaan”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. N Datta is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available. Listening to this song, most people will guess this song to be an archtypical Helen bar dance song on the lines of “mera naam chin chin choo”.

Helen is very much there in the cast, and so I guess that this song must have been picturised on her. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Na na na na na na ab na aa ke jaana (Dr Shaitaan)(1960) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-N Datta

Lyrics

Remembering Geeta Dutt.

She passed away 45 years ago on 20th July in 1972, brining to close a tumultuous and tragic life, all of 41 years. A voice that held so much promise, and yes, she gave too, so many wonderful gems to remember her by. Just going by the numbers – the decade of 1950s carries close to 850 songs sung by her. And then, in the 1960s, she has recorded less than hundred. And the majority of them belonging to the first half of the decade.

Emotional stability and personal circumstances have such big impact on the performance and output of an artist. It is difficult, and even unfair, to comment on a artist’s portfolio of work, trying to juxtapose it against the personal ups and downs. But in some cases, it stands out quite starkly. The 1950s were the heydays for Geeta Rai, later to be Geeta Dutt, when she married Guru Dutt in 1953. But then, subsequently, a film maker’s life became an impediment in the relationship. Both spouses are artists and creators par excellence, and based on what is written about them, also very sensitive individuals. Thankfully, both are non-compete. And yet, the personal affairs, and the airing of these personal matters in public and media, took a heavy toll of personal energy and emotions, impairing to an extent, their abilities to perform.

In early 1960s, we see a slowdown in Geeta’s output. And then, the tragedy strikes – come 1964 and Guru Dutt is no more. The devastation that descends on Geeta is visible simply from the quantum of her artistic output. Especially in the latter half of 1960s, the songs by her are reduced to a trickle, with just a handful being recorded each year.

The decade turns into 1970s. Just one released film ‘Anubhav’ (1971) with a set of three superb renditions. For a moment, the media, the industry watchers and the listeners, are all agog. The expectations rise once again; here a comeback seems to be in the offing. But then a more tragic news follows almost immediately. She herself is gone; just in 1971 itself. A brilliant blaze that is gone in a flash. The world would no more hear any new songs in her voice. And the songs of ‘Anubhav’ – three recordings that are so full of life, are so reminiscent of the Geeta of 1950s – these become her swansong, so unfortunately. Speculations is all that remains.

For today’s remembrance I am able to pull out this touchingly poignant rendition from one of her very early films, not easily remembered and not easily available. The year is 1947. The industry and the listening public has already stood up to the vibrant sounds of ‘Do Bhai’ that have been rendered under the baton of SD Burman. In the same year, the film ‘Jadui Ratan’ was released. And this new voice of a young girl of 16 is taken up by Chitragupt, another relatively newcomer in the industry, for this film. The film is produced under the banner of Kismet Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Natwar Shyam. Chitragupt had young Geeta Roy sing two duets and one solo song in this film.

I am presenting today the solo song – “Rut Badal Gayi, Wo Taraana Badal Gaya”. Geet Kosh lists two songwriters for this film namely Behzaad and Kamlakant. However, the assignment of specific songs to individual songwriters has not been made.

A tender and touching melody from seventy years ago, sung by a young girl of 16 at the time of recording. Listen to this beautiful rendition, and marvel at the emotive potential this voice carried, at that young an age.

 

Song – Wo Rut Badal Gayi Wo Taraana Badal Gaya  (Jadui Ratan) (1947) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics -[Unattributed], MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

ye keh ke phir guzar gayi
fasl e bahaar bhi
phoolon mein tha jo apna thikaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
aankhon mein ashq aaye
fasaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
ab intezaar ka bhi
zamaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

ये कह के फिर गुज़र गयी
फस्ले बहार भी
फूलों में था जो
अपना ठिकाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
आँखों में अश्क आए
फसाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
अब इंतज़ार का भी
ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

Today (20 july 2017) is the 45th remembrance day of Geeta Dutt (23 november 1930-20 july 1972). By that time, she had achieved so much in her chosen field of activity that she was assured of being counted among HFM legends. It is easy to forget that she was just 41 when she passed away. That way, she was one of those who departed for their heavenly abode quite early, yet achieved a lot in their fields and became legends. Some other such names that come to mind are Guru Dutt (her own spouse), Jaikishan, Shailendra etc.

As a tribute of Geeta Dutt, here is a song from “Aahuti” (1950) aka “Anokhi Qurbaani”. This movie was directed by Kulbhushan for Sansaar Movietone Limited, Bombay. It had Mumtaz Shanti, Ranjeet Kumari, sapru, Premkant, Kesari, Bikram Kapoor, Cuckoo, Nautiyal, Sudhir, Pitu, Khan Chaand, Mukul, Ratan Gaurang, Bhajanlal, Shyama, Krishna Rani, Neelam, Indra, Indubala, Uma, Gulnar Shirazi, Kathana etc in it.

This song, the second (out of twelve songs) to appear in the blog, is sung by Geeta Dutt. Tandon is the lyricist. Music is composed by D C Dutt.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie, on the lyricist as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dil jo tumko de diya (Aahuti)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Tandon, MD-D C Dutt

Lyrics

ho
dil jo tumko
ho dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

khata yahi hui ke nazar tumse mil gayi
itni si baat badh ke kahaani si ban gayi
kisko bura kahen jo chain khud hi kho diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

pahle to dil lagaane ko samjhe thhe kuchh nahin
samjhe thhe kuchh nahin
ab haath mal rahe hain ke dil kho gaya kahin
dil kho gaya kahin
hamne ganwaaya dil
hamen dil ne ganwa diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

kehna main dil ka maan ke badnaam ho gayi
jitni chhipaayi preet tumse utni khul gayi
jo kah saki na munh se wo aankhon ne keh diya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya
ho dil jo tumko de diya
dard mol le liya
sochti hoon baar baar
haaye maine kya kiya
ye kya kiya

हो दिल जो तुमको
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
हो दिल जो तुमको
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

खता यही हुई के
नज़र तुमसे मिल गयी
इतनी सी बात बढ़के
कहानी सी बन गयी
किसको बुरा कहे
जो चैन खुद ही खो दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
दिल जो तुमको
दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

पहले तो दिल लगाने को
समझे थे कुछ नहीं
समझे थे कुछ नहीं
अब हाथ मल रहे हैं के
दिल खो गया कहीं
दिल खो गया कहीं
हमने गंवाया दिल
हमें दिल ने गंवा दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
दिल जो तुमको
दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया

कहना मैं जिस का मान के
बदनाम हो गयी
जितनी छिपायी प्रीत तुमसे
उतनी खुल गयी
जो कह सकी न मुंह से
वो आँखों ने कह दिया आ
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
हो दिल जो तुमको दे दिया
दर्द मोल ले लिया
सोचती हूँ बार बार
हाय मैंने क्या किया
ये क्या किया
