Rehnuma, starring Rehana Sultan and Vinod Mehra, is an uncompleted movie of the early 1970s. I haven’t been able to find any more details about it on the Internet, and would request knowledgeable Atulites to throw some light on it.

In 1972, Madan Mohan recorded four songs for this film penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri, but the movie got shelved for some reason … and the songs were just lost. But later they were found on his tapes after his demise and released by his family on a rare LP … and were included in the album Tere Bagair released by YRF Music.

Mere Ashqo.n Ka Gham Na Kar Aye Dil is one of the four soulful numbers from that ill-fated movie, vocalised by Sur Saraswati Lata Mangeshkar as only she can. This emotional ghazal with a typical Madan Mohan style melody is presented with modern arrangements as was perhaps the requirement of the film.

The link here is of a brief audio clip of Madan Mohan trying out different variations of tunes when composing this song before finalizing the version recorded in Lata’s vocals. It is accessible on YouTube here.

If this number was actually filmed, it’s reasonable to assume that it would have been on Rehana Sultan. Its actual video clip is not available, but a version of the song voiced-over on the Bollywood Venus Madhubala from an assortment of clips from her various movies can be viewed here.

Singer Bella Sulakhe presented this number credibly in a live show which is worth a watch here.

Song–Mere Ashqon Ka Gham Na Kar Ae Dil (Rehnuma)(UR)(1972) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar aye dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar ae dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar aye dil

Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Silsila rok beeti baaton ka
Warna tadpega raat bhar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil

Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Raah sunsaan hai andhera hai
Kaise tay hoga yeh safar ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil

Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Teer barsaaye chaand ki kirnen
Raat ke nange jism par ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Apni barbaadiyon se dar, ae dil
Mere ashkon ka gham na kar ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil
Ae dil

I came across a nice number from ‘Police Public’ (1990) by chance when I happened to click here on a Lollywood number “Mein Jis Din Bhula Doon Tera Pyar Dil Se” penned by Masroor Anwar for Khushboo (1979). On that YouTube web-page, I also noticed the same mukhda under this ‘Police Public’ number.

Similar – or even identical – mukhdas are not all that rare; and Lollywood and Bollywood copying each other’s themes, tunes and lyrics was not unheard of in the yesteryears. But what struck me was almost identical lyrics – albeit in different settings and tunes.

Be it as it may be, ‘Police Public’, a Vijay Mehta production, was directed by Esmayeel Shroff. It has a crime-corruption busting theme with Raaj Kumar as a fearless senior C.B.I. inspector as its chief protagonist.

Fareed Tonki’s “Raste Alag-Alag Hain Thikaana To Ek Hai” is my all-time favourite lyrical message of religious tolerance, harmony and mutual respect. It drives home the poignant truism for the faithful that God, by whichever name, is after all One.

Never before I had to piece together so little information from so many sources about a song that I liked so much as in case of “Ut’re jo zindagi teri gehraaiyon men hum” from Pratibha (1984).

“Daak Babu” (1954) was an obscure Jubilee Pictures production directed by Lekhraj Bhakri, with Talat Mehmood and Nadira in the lead roles. Hindi Geet Mala lists 10 songs from this movie with links to most of them here. Out of these, four are already on Song-a-Day web-site.

There are only a handful of Bollywood numbers from movies made after mid-1960s that I really long to hear. Lest I may be misunderstood, this is a statement of personal preference by this music-illiterate, not necessarily an adverse commentary on the later years’ work.

“Kahe tose sajana, ye tohri sajaniya” is an incredibly romantic yet a touching number from “Maine Pyar Kiya” (1989). Directed by Sooraj Barjatya, it was one of the biggest hits of 1989 – and of the 1980s – earning “All-time Blockbuster” status at the Box Office. It starred Salman Khan (in his first lead role after his film debut an year earlier in a side role in Biwi Ho To Aisi) and Bhagyashree (making her debut).

Nahm has recently posted Mubarak Begum’s Aaj aayi bahaar le ke dil ka qaraar from Baghdad Ka Jaadoo (1956). It was then that I realized that none of its other numbers is on this Blog – which has prompted me to post my favourite from this movie today, a duet Chaand muskaaye sanam, jiya lehraaye sanam.
