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

About this song:
This song appears in the list of songs of the 1955 film Kundan. I tried to search through the film, but am not able to locate it. For all intents and purposes, it seems that this song has been excluded from the film.

‘Kundan’ is produced and directed by Sohrab Modi, for his home production banner – Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The 10 listed songs of this film are written by Shakeel Badayuni, and music is by Ghulam Mohammed. The main cast of actors includes such luminaries as Sohrab Modi himself, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Nimmi, Pran, Om Prakash, Manorama, Murad, Baby Naaz, Roopmala, Kumkum, Dar Kashmiri (aka Jeevan), Sadat Ali, Uma Dutt etc.

  2. Deep Ke Sang Jalun Main
  3. Jal Jal Ke Maroon Kuchh Keh Na Sakoon
  4. Hum Haal e Dil Sunaayenge, Suniye Ke Na Suniye
  5. Aaj Aayi Bahaar Le Ke Dil Ka Qaraar
  6. Kaliyon Ko Choomoon Taaron Se Kheloon
  7. Chaand Muskaaye Sanam Jiya Lehraaye Sanam

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

The Voice of Mukesh #69
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film industry has seen many stars, who, by logical analysis, should not have been. Let me mention the names of four male singers, who have become legends now – Saigal Sb, Rafi Sb, Mukesh, and Kishore Kumar. Besides all four of them being singers who have rendered songs that have become timeless in their essence and popularity, there is one more common thread that runs through their lives. None of these four had any recognized formal training in classical music. And yet, their voice, their renditions, the emotional alchemy contained therein – has an element of something that can only be attributed to providence.

Missing Films of 1960s – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

In our effort to bring on the films of 1960s as yet missing from the blog, today with enter the year 1963. This is as per the list of pending films sent by Khyati Ben. ‘Been Ka Jaadu’ is alphabetically the first film of 1963 that is still waiting representation here. To recap the status, I am giving below the list of films from 1961 and 1962, for which we are as yet unable to trace any songs.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ढ’
“ढोलक को खूब बजाओ, जानी को खूब नचाओ”

Today’s alphabet letter has been the most elusive to locate. Statistically, ‘ढ’ is one of the lesser used letters, and so, the songs starting with words starting with this alphabet are comparatively fewer in number. As I was poring through the song lists from various sources, the search always ended with just three songs starting with ‘ढ’. And incidentally, these three are well known songs, and are already posted on our blog. The search through the lists, whether from Geet Kosh or other sources, is sometimes a problem, because at times a leading couplet appears in the beginning, and ‘mukhda’ of the song appears in the later part of the title. Searching for such words in the title is a difficult and tedious task. But after some extra effort I was able to identify this song. Then I went back into the Geet Kosh again, and confirmed that the ‘mukhda’ of this song indeed starts with the word ‘ढोलक’.

‘ड’
“डूबी नैय्या आके किनारे”

Continuing with the alpha series of songs by Rafi Sb, I present today a lesser heard sad song from the early years of his career. The year is 1948.  The young singer is just finding a foothold in the industry. The film song that will become his first popular hit happened this year – “Ik Dil Ke Tukde Hazaar Huye. . .” (from the film ‘Pyaar Ki Jeet’). Other very significant songs are also to follow in this year and the next (1949).

The duration has been sliced to less than half, rather almost one third. That is, in comparison to the previous interregnum. Maybe not THE quickest but one of the quickest. Ah yes, I refer to the century milestone, the 122nd that we strike today. The reference to the duration is the time comparison between this one today, and the one that came just before it. We had hit the 12 thousand mark on 20th April. After that, it has been a real slow tread to come to the next one hundredth mark, which happened on 18th June. Counting the days, the number is 60. One of the tardiest to have occurred on this blog. But then we made it up, very sprightly and very quick – from 19th June to 10th July today. Counting the days, the number is 22. Wow, that is the bandwagon at its galloping best. The Raanchiwaala Gaanewaala is pulling out all the stops.

Congratulations to all the bandwagoneers – one more batch of a hundred songs is now added to the collection. And the musical journey continues, merrily onwards.

The strongest image that remains in the mind is that of the film director Sinha Saab, a bedraggled man in tattered garments, with ruffled grey hair and white beard, a leathery skin on face lined with wrinkles that appeared much before time – a young person who aged too rapidly for his years. With help of a walking stick, he climbs down from the shadows of the scaffolding where he has perched himself, watching the action on the floor below – the same floor where once, not too long ago, he was the ringmaster, and everyone bowed to him. Not anymore. Today, he is a ‘has been’, who lost his touch of Midas, and the same world that once clamored to him, has quickly forgotten and relegated him, literally, to the garbage heap.

With difficulty, he negotiates the narrow ladders that lead down from the scaffolding to the studio floor. Once there, he shuffles to the chair, his chair, in the days of glory; the chair with the word ‘Director’ written across its back. He sits. And then he is immobile, never to get up again, never to wake up.

When the crowd of workers return after lunch, everyone is shocked to see this grimy old man, sitting motionless in the director’s chair. Everyone is known to him, but today no one recognizes him, now that he is gone. None, save one light-boy, who remembers and recognizes his earliest benefactor – Sinha Saab.

The power of these images and these sequences now have a cult following, not only in India but worldwide. Remembering Guru Dutt on his seventy seventh anniversary. (9th July)

‘ठ’
“ठुमक ठुमक चले चाल आँख में काजल की डोरी”

With humble beginnings as a child ‘extra’, way back in 1951, the story of Jagdeep’s career is an interesting discourse. He made his debut appearance as an extra child actor in BR Chopra’s ‘Afsaana’ (1951). His comic propensities became visible in another small role as a child actor in Bimal Roy’s ‘Do Beegha Zameen’. Then on to more noticeable child roles – ‘Laila Majnu’ (1953), the younger Kaif, playing the child version of Shammi Kapoor; ‘Footpath’ (1953), a young street smart pickpocket; the role of Elaichi in Guru Dutt’s ‘Aar Paar’ (1954); the child clown in ‘Munna’ (1954); the young Kishore Kumar in ‘Dhobi Doctor’ (1954); and ‘Railway Platform’ (1955), ‘Mr & Mrs 55’ (1955), ‘Kismet Ke Khel’ (1956), ‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ (1956), and more. Then comes 1957 and two important films – ‘Ab Dilli Door Nahin’ and ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’. Still the child actor, but gaining recognition with every role. The child actors’ team in ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’ was recognized and awarded by Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru.

Missing Films of 1960s – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Toofaani Tarzan’ – a picture with this name was produced and released way back in 1937. That film was produced by Wadia Movietone, and the title role of Tarzan was performed by John Cawas. The film had three songs, written by Pandit Gyan, and composed by Master Mohammad. All three songs are in the voice of Ahmed Dilawar. Interestingly, the film itself is available, as are the three songs on 78 rpm records published under the ‘Twin Records’ label.
