The film ‘Pyaase Dil’, from 1974 is an unfamiliar and obscure entity. However, not for the readers of this blog. This film has been discussed briefly, and not so briefly, in the three posts of the songs of this film that have appeared so far on this blog. The film has a total of four songs. This post brings forth the fourth and the final song of this film on to the blog today. I am sure the word is already in the mind and lips of the regulars, and I do not have to spell out Yippeee, to mark this event.

The earlier songs that have been posted on the blog are

Ye Dilnasheen Nazaare Karte Hain Kyaa Ishaare Pyaase Dil 6060 6-Jun-12
Jhukti Ghata Hamse Kahe Pyaase Dil 8558 19-Aug-13
Tum Mehekti Jawaan Chandni Ho Pyaase Dil 8605 29-Aug-13

As far as the film is concerned, there is nothing remarkable to be discussed, and maybe nothing remains in the collective public memory about it. But for the music. The songs that this film has, are all memorable, despite the fact that one is still surprised to hear the name of the film connecting to the songs. But well, it has to be. Music compositions are by Khaiyyaam, and the lyrics are written by Jaan Nissar Akhtar. Mukesh has rendered two of the four songs in this film. The third is a duet with Mahendra Kapoor and Jagjit Kaur, and the fourth is a chorus song led by Jagjit Kaur. With this combination, the songs indeed have to be remarkable, although they do nothing much for the film.

The storyline of the film in brief.

Poonam (role played by Alka) lives in a village with her mother (role played by Leela Misra). Together they run a small tea shop in the village. Poonam’s mother is in debt of the local Seth (role played by Maruti). Raja (role played by Aziz Mirza) is a truck driver who fancies Poonam. Romance happens, and they fall in love. Raja promises Poonam’s mother that he will help to payback the Seth’s debt, before he sits in the wedding pandal with her daughter. He gets a dangerous assignment to deliver explosives at a construction site in the hills. It is the day of his wedding. He is returning from his last delivery trip, when his truck meets with an accident, and he is hospitalized.

When Raja does not turn up for the wedding, Poonam’s mother has a heart attack and she passes away. The Seth now wants Poonam married to his son. But the son is aware that Poonam is already carrying Raja’s child before marriage, and he helps her to escape from the village. After three months, when Raja returns, he finds no tea shop, and no trace of Poonam.

After giving birth to a son, Poonam takes the child to a distant town. In the night, she places the child at the feet of a portrait of Jesus in a missionary hospital, and hides herself. The nursing staff discovers the child, and informs Dr. Joseph (role played by Pichoo Kapoor), who is the head of the hospital. Dr. Joseph decides that the hospital will adopt the child. The next day, Poonam, claiming her name to be Asha, also appears at his office, and begs for any work at the hospital. Dr Joseph, sensing a connection, allows her to stay as a cleaning woman.

Years pass. The child is now five years old. Poonam/Asha has worked hard to become a nurse at the hospital. At this juncture, Dr. Anand (role played by Yash Tandon) joins the hospital, leaving a lucrative job in a large city. He takes a fancy to both the child, and the nurse Asha. The child thus far knows Asha only as Didi, as he is not yet aware that she is actually his mother. Romance develops between the doctor and the nurse, and the things start moving towards matrimony, as Anand takes Asha home to meet his mother (role played by Shyama).

A train accident happens close to the hospital, and many injured patients are brought in. Destiny brings Raja also to this hospital, as one of the injured passengers, who has lost his eyesight in the accident. He recuperates, and Anand decides to attempt a difficult operation to restore Raja’s eyesight. In the intervening time, Raja senses something familiar in the voice and touch of the nurse Asha, and Asha realizes that he is her Raja, once the bandages come off his face. The dilemma becomes more complicated, as Raja figures out that Asha is his Poonam, and that he is the father of the child. He also realizes that Anand and Asha/Poonam are getting married.

The eye operation happens. On the day that the bandages are removed, he pretends that the operation has failed and he has not recovered his eyesight. And after some days, feigning blindness, but otherwise fit, he leaves the hospital with a blind man’s walking stick. During his stay, he has had conversations with Anand, about his past. As the story progresses, Anand also figures out the truth, and he confronts Asha. In the conversation he reveals that he is aware of the relationship between Raja, Asha/Poonam and the child. Unknown to them, the child is also listening to the conversation, and he comes to know that the blind patient Raja is his father. He runs away from the hospital, chasing the departed Raja who is pretending to be blind. Anand runs after the child.

The child reaches close to Raja, on a road that has vehicular traffic also. The child comes close to being hit by a vehicle, when Raja, throwing away his stick, rescues the child. Anand also reaches at that moment; all secrets on all sides are now in the open. The happy ending is that the family of Raja, Poonam and child are finally united. But Anand is left alone.

The one important sticky point in this story that makes it un-convincing is that when Asha/Poonam realizes the identity of the patient to be her lost bridegroom-to-be, she should happily reclaim both him and the child. Her silence at this juncture is not explicable. Except that the film would have been shorter by about 30 minutes. 🙂

Today’s song is a wedding song, in which the sahelis of the bride are teasing her. The words tell of the beauty and the comeliness of the bride, about the anxiety of the wait for the groom’s arrival, and also tease her about how her beau will embrace and kiss her. The singing voice is of Jagjit Kaur, accompanied by chorus.

On screen, the song is performed by, well I need help here to identify the lead singer. Is she Prema Narayan? I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please help to identify her. We also see Alka, dressed up as the bride and waiting for the groom’s arrival. The groom, actor Aziz Mirza,  appears for brief moments intermittently, as he is heading back to his village riding the truck that he drives. For a brief moment we also see Benjamin Gilani, seated amongst the guests. He is the best friend of the groom, and he too is anxiously awaiting the arrival of the groom.

The film is produced under the banner of New Ashok International, and is directed by Charandas Shokh. The star case consist of Yash Tandan, Aziz Mirza, Alka, Benjamin Gilani, Kumud Tripathi, Leela Mishra, Pinchoo Kapoor, Maruti, Shyama, Master Teeto. The songs of the film are penned by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar and the music composition is by Khaiyyaam Sb.

With this post, the film ‘Pyaase Dil’ now joins the select group of films with all songs posted here.

Chorus

Lyrics

sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke
main waari hothon ki laali par
phoolon bhari baali par
nainon ki pyaali par
angiya ki jaali par
ghazab kare haaye badan tan tan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

khushboo ye haaron ki
solah singaaron ki
laage najriya gori
tujhko sitaaron ki
ho tujhko sitaaron ki
khushboo ye haaron ki
solah singaaron ki
laage najriya gori
tujhko sitaaron ki
ho tujhko sitaaron ki
ke pad gaye shor
tere joban ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

bolun main gori se
socha hai chori se
jaldi se aaye miley
chanda chakori se
ho chanda chakori se
bolun main gori se
socha hai chori se
jaldi se aaye miley
chanda chakori se
ho chanda chakori se
ke baithe hareyaan sapne sajan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

dheere se aaye ke
ghunghata uthaaye ke
choomenge sajna tujhe
garwa lagaaye ke
ho garwa lagaaye ke
dheere se aaye ke
ghunghata uthaaye ke
choomenge sajna tujhe
garwa lagaaye ke
ho garwa lagaaye ke
ke gave mann geet
madhur milan ke
ke gave mann geet
madhur milan ke

main waari hothon ki laali par
phoolon bhari baali par
nainon ki pyaali par
angiya ki jaali par
ghazab kare haaye badan tan tan ke
sakhi ri sharmaaye
dulhan saj ban ke

सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के
सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के
मैं वारी होठों की लाली पर
फूलों भरी बाली पर
नैनों की प्याली पर
अंगिया की जाली पर
ग़ज़ब करे हाए बदन तन तन के
सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के

खुशबू ये हारों की
सोलह सिंगारों की
लागे नजरिया गोरी
तुझको सितारों की
हो तुझको सितारों की
खुशबू ये हारों की
सोलह सिंगारों की
लागे नजरिया गोरी
तुझको सितारों की
हो तुझको सितारों की
के पड़ गए शोर
तेरे जोबन के
सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के

बोलूँ मैं गोरी से
सोचा है चोरी से
जल्दी से आए मिले
चंदा चकोरी से
हो चंदा चकोरी से
बोलूँ मैं गोरी से
सोचा है चोरी से
जल्दी से आए मिले
चंदा चकोरी से
हो चंदा चकोरी से
के बैठे हरेआन सपने सजन के
सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के

धीरे से आए के
घुंघटा उठाए के
चूमेंगे सजना तुझे
गरवा लगाए के
हो गरवा लगाए के
धीरे से आए के
घुंघटा उठाए के
चूमेंगे सजना तुझे
गरवा लगाए के
हो गरवा लगाए के
के गावे मन गीत
मधुर मिलन के
के गावे मन गीत
मधुर मिलन के

मैं वारी होठों की लाली पर
फूलों भरी बाली पर
नैनों की प्याली पर
अंगिया की जाली पर
ग़ज़ब करे हाए बदन तन तन के
सखी री शरमाये
दुल्हन साज बन के

I have discussed as many as four songs from “Dil e Nadaan” (1953) but I was not aware of this song. This is a delightful song which is sung by Jagjit Kaur. The song is picturised wonderfully well. The picturisation shows Peace Kanwal singing this song, Shyama dancing on it and Talat Mehmood playing the violin. One elderly gentleman is also visible in the picturisation but I am anable to identify it.

The dominant kind of music in 1980s was disco music. It was this kind of music that sounded the death knell of the golden era of Hindi movie music.

There are some Hindi movie songs that become so popular that they get adopted as part of life. For instance, many prayers in Hindi movies have actually become school prayers as well as prayers during religious festivals. Then there are lullabies in Hindi movies that have become integral part of the growing up process of generations of kids in India. Then there are patriotic songs from the movies that are hugely popular and are invariable played during days of national importance ( viz.independence day and republic day).

I have mentioned it several times that there are lots of songs that I know nothing about. I get to know about them either on my own while I stumble upon them, or through the farmaishes of my knowledgeable readers.

It is always refreshing to listen to female singers other than the usual ones. But is is not always possible of other singers to get past the monopoly of the few female singers.
