This movie had nine songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog in the past.

Song-Khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya (Bikhre Moti)(1951) Singer-Hamida Bano, Lyrics-Khumar Barabankwi, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

sitam sehna magar khaamosh rehnaan
jabaan se itna karna kuchh na kehna
haa aan aan aan
kahen kya haal apni bebasi ka
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

huye armaan saare khak jal ke
mohabbat reh gayi haathon ko mal ke
ae ae ae
chala kaabu na kuchh bhi haaye apna
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

muqaddar hai tera dushman zamaana
nahin duniya mein ab apna thhikaana
haan aan aan aan
bani hai jaan par ae maut aa ja
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

Today’s song is from a film having a familiar title – Lakhon mein ek-1947, but this film is hardly known to anyone. The title is familiar, because there were two more films with the same title, in two different decades later on. One was Lakhon mein ek-1955, which had a less known Heroine Asha Mathur, opposite a veteran Jairaj. It had music by Bhola Shreshtha. The other film was Lakhon mein ek-1971, which had an unknown (till then and later too) debutante Heroine- Radha, opposite comedian Mehmood. This film had music by R D Burman and few songs became popular for some years.

Today’s film was made by Ranjit Movietone- the film factory, owned by Sardar Chandulal Shah. The film had music by Hansraj Behl (7 songs) and Bulo C Rani (4 Songs).

In 1947, Bulo C Rani was employed by Ranjit as their in house composer after Gyan Dutt (37-40) and Khemchand Prakash (40-45). The film’s songs were written by Pt. Indra Chandra. The film was directed by Taimur Behramsha, who debuted as a director, with this film. Earlier he was a Cinematographer in Ranjit. After this film, Ranjit gave him another film for direction – Bhool Bhulaiyan-49. Then he floated his own company ‘ Taimur Art Productions’ and produced and directed film Izzat-1952.

The cast of the film was Khursheed Jr. (Meenakumari’s elder sister), Nirupa Roy, Ghulam Mohammed, Bipin Gupta and others. Khursheed jr, first entered the films, then came Meena Kumari and lastly Baby Madhuri aka Madhu. All sisters got married only to suffer in their later life. Their stories are pathetic. The handsome actor Altaf, was married to Khurshid. Mehmood & Altaf were co-brothers,being married to siblings Khursheed & Madhu respectively. Khursheed & Madhu tried their luck & appeared in few movies,but were not successful. Madhu, it may be recalled had a brief role in Manzil(1960).

Altaf was not as lucky as his co-brother- Mehmood or sister in law Meena Kumari. Although,initially he appeared in some movies as leading man in 40s, but soon he was relegated to play negative roles in films. Chhote Nawab, Ghulam Beghum Badshah, Sone Ki Chidia, Noor Jahan, Raja Rani, Char Chand etc were few of his movies.

Meena Kumari, Khurshhed & Madhu,it seems, were destined to suffer, in their second half of life. While we are aware of Meena Kumari’s last days, Khurshid & Altaf led miserable life & were forced to live in Jhopadpatti, due to financial constraints, after Meena Kumari passed away. Madhuri was divorced by Mehmood & she had to leave the house,to live the life in penury.

The music director Hansraj Behl is one of my favourite composers, though his name never came up in the A class composers. His compositions were very melodious, but his luck was very harsh with him. Many such cases, be they composers, actors, directors or singers, are known to us. When one sees their life stories and works, one is forced to believe that LUCK is more important than Talent, at least in Film Industry. This is Hansraj Behl for you….

Hansraj Behl (19-11-1916 to 20-5-1984), in my opinion,is one of those composers in film world, who composed lots of melodious songs. Unfortunately, he was also one of those composers who never got Big banners to work for. He and his brother, Gulshan Behl founded N.C.Films, on their father’s name-Nihal Chand- and produced B and C grade movies to which Hansraj gave his music. Hansraj was known as Master ji, in the industry. Only two people were known as Master ji…one was Ghulam Haider and the other was Hansraj Behl. Hansraj usually worked alone and rarely used any assistant while giving music.

Hansraj is remembered for giving initial playback singing breaks to Asha Bhonsle and Madhubala Jhaveri. He also gave chance to his own friend Verma Malik-Lyricist. Malik used to live with him initially, in Bombay. He composed music for 71 films from Pujari-46 to Badmashon ka Badmash-79. One film “Insaaf ka Khoon” was released after his death,in 1988.

Hansraj Behl is one of the music directors who became successful in the post independence era. He composed music for not only Hindi films but also for Punjabi films. Hansraj was born on 19 November 1916 in Punjab. He got his basic education in music from Pt. Chunnilal. Then he opened his music school in Lahore and he had some non-film records released under the label of HMV. In 1944 Hansraj came to Bombay to try his luck in Hindi film industry as a music director.

After one year of struggle he got his first film Pujari, made by Ardeshir Irani, in 1946. He got films like Gwaalan and Phulwaari in the same year, but all these films could not do well at the box office. Behl tasted success in 1947 with the release of Laakhon Mein Ek and Chheen Le Aazadi. ‘Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi..’ sung by Shamshad Begum and Mukesh from the film Chheen Le Aazadi became very popular. In 1948 he came up with four films – Chunariya, Mitti Ke Khilone, Pardesi Mehmaan and Satya Narayan, of which Chunariya’s music was a hit especially the song ‘Dil-e-Nashaad Ko Jeene Ki Hasrat Ho Gayi..’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song which placed him among high class music directors was ‘Sab Kuchh Lutaya Hamne Aakar Teri Gali Me..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi and written by Mulk Raj Bhaakri.

In the year 1949, he came out with Chakori, Raat Ki Raani, Zevraat and few more films. Lata sang one of her favourite songs, ‘Haye Chanda Gaye Pardes Chakori Yahan Ro Ro Mare..’ in Chakori, which became very popular and it helped Hansraj to gain popularity among music lovers. ‘Jin Raaton Mein Neend Ud Jaati Hai..’ sung by Mohammed Rafi in Raat Ki Raani was a nation wide hit.

In 1950-51 he gave many hit songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Geeta Dutt and Suraiyya. Songs of Kisi Ki Yaad became very popular soon after the release of the film. ‘Koi Mujhko Na Bulaye..’ and ‘Tadapta Chhod Kar Mujhko Kahaan Tum Reh Gaye..’ both sung by Geeta Dutt and ‘O Jaane Wale Ye Kya Kiya..’ by Mohammed Rafi gained immense popularity. In 1952 he introduced Madhubala Jhaveri as a playback singer in Apni Izzat and Jaggu. Madhubala sang ‘Dil Mera Tera Diwaana..’ with Talat Mehmood and ‘Meethi Meethi Loriyaan Main Dheere Dheere Gaoon..’ (both Apni Izzat) featured her solo voice. In 1954, he again came out with musical films like Dost and Khaiber. ‘Aaye Bhi Akela Jaye Bhi Akela..’ from Dost (1954) sung by Talat Mehmood was among one of his memorable compositions.

He continued to give his best in films like Rajdhani, Milan, Miss Bombay, Changez Khan and Saawan. Songs like ‘Bhool Ja Sapne Suhane..’ from Rajdhani (1956), ‘Mohabbat Zinda rehti Hai..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘ Jab Raat Nahi Katti..’ from Changez Khan (1957), ‘Zindagi Bhar Gham Judaai Ka..’ from Miss Bombay (1957), ‘Haseen Ho Khuda To Nahi..’ from Mud Mud Ke Na Dekh (1960), ‘Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama..’ from Saawan (1959) and ‘Tujhko Dhoondhu To Dhoondhu Kahaan..’ from Milan (1959) crossed all the barriers of success and Hansraj Behl’s name was on the lips of every music lover.

After all these successful films he continued to give music till 1969 but failed to give any hit because his later films were either stunts or fantasy films with little scope for having good music. His last hit song was an all time great creation ‘Jahan Daal Daal Pe Sone Ki Chidiya Karti Hai Basera..’ which was sung by Mohammed Rafi for the film Sikandar-e-Aazam in 1965. In all, he gave music to 71 films and composed 530 songs.

Hansraj Behl died of Cancer in Bombay on 20-5-1984.

Today’s song is a very melodious song sung by Hamida Bano. Singer Hamida Bano was born on 19-10-1928,in Lahore. Her family shifted to Bombay in 1942. Hamida’s elder brother Akbar worked with a Drama company. He gave her the initial training in singing. This kindled a desire in her mind to sing in Hindi Films. Those days,the well known,Actor/Director Master Bhagwan lived nearby. He once recommended her name to his best friend-C.Ramchandra. He was the MD for Bhagwan’s film ” Naghma-e-Sehara “-1943. He gave her a break with 3 songs in this film. Unfortunately,this film got delayed and was released only in 1945. Meanwhile,Naushad had found her and he gave her a song in film ” Sanjog’-43 and she sang her first released song with Shyam kumar.

C.Ramchandra continued using her in films like Bahadur, Lalkar, Manorama, Raunaq, Sawan etc. In those years C.Ramchandra himself was not very famous-till his HIT films like Safar-46 and Shehnai-47 etc. So Hamida was not much benefitted with these songs. From 1945,it was composer Bulo C Rani,who used Hamida Bano for some really memorable songs like in film ” Moorti”-45–badariya baras gayi uss paar. Then came Rajputani, Chheen le Azadi, Phulwari, Badi baat, Shahenshah Babar, Naseeb, Parayi aag,Preet, Devar Dharti, Nek Parveen, Neelkamal, Tohfa and Rimjhim. After 1950 her songs became less and she sang in Bikhre Moti, Rajput, Anjaam,and Majboori-54-her last film in India. She sang about 125 odd songs in about 62 films.

In 1956, she migrated to Pakistan. In Karachi,she recorded some songs. Then she settled in Lahore and became active in social work. Occasionally, she was seen in functions like ” Nigar Awards Function ” etc. She continued singing on Lahore Radio. Hamida Bano died on 20-11-2006 at the age of 78 yrs. Her last song in India was with Asha in Majboori-1954-“Tere poojan ko Bhagwan bana Man mandir aalishan”.

Enjoy this lovely song composed by Hansraj Behl.

“Anban”(1944) was directed by Niren Lahiri for Bharat Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, Pahadi Sanyal, Shahnawaz, David, Mubarak, Shobhana Samarth, Jagirdar, Gula, sunalini Devi, Rajendra, anand etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Anban”(1944) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Hamida Bano. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Gyan Dutt.

Only the audio of the song is available. Going by the story of the movie, as narrated by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhousse encyclopaedia, while covering an earlier song from the movie, it appears to me that this song was picturised on Nargis. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This “missing the beloved” genre of song is penned in chaste Hindi using words that may not have been used much in HFM. I have not been able to get a few words right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the words/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Kyun dard de ke bhool gaye Shyam salone(Anban)(1944) Singer-Hamida Bano, Lyrics-Pt Madhur, MD-Gyan Dutt

Lyrics

Kyun dard de ke bhool gaye ae ae
shyaam salone
Kyun dard de ke bhool gaye ae ae
shyaam salone
aankhon ke saath
ab to laga dil bhi hai rone aen aen
shyaam salone
Kyun dard de ke bhool gaye ae ae
shyaam salone

toone diya hai dukh mujhe
dukkhon se pyaar hai
toone diya hai dukh mujhe
dukkhon se pyaar hai
nadiyon ke geet mein
mere dil ki pukaar hai
nadiyon ke geet mein
mere dil ki pukaar hai
aahen lagi hain yaad ke daanon ko pirone ae ae
shyaam salone

hai prem haar haath mein
meethhi hai baat bhi
phoolon ke hindole hain
aur saawan ki raat bhi
dukhiyaa ke man mein
aag lagaayi hai sabon ne ae
shyam salone

prabhat ke sang mein unhen bhi
dekh main paaun
baahon ka haar prem se
saajan ko pinhaaun
zakhmon ko banaaun
mere jeewan ke khilaune ae
shyaam salone
zakhmon ko banaaun
mere jeewan ke khilaune ae
Shyaam salone
Kyun dard de ke bhool gaye ae ae
shyam salone

The star cast included Munawwar Sultana, Ulhas, Mumtaz (Madhubala), Sheri, A Shah, W M Khan, Jilloo Bai etc. The story of the film revolves around the mistaken identities of the two prospective brides and bridegrooms.
