Blog Day :

4511 Post No. : 16060

Today (23 november 2020) is the 90th birth anniversary of Geeta Dutt (23 November 1930- 20 July 1972). I was aware of this fact yesterday itself, seeing that I had received several contributions for the occasion. Moreover, this date, which happens to be a monday, is also a day when I present my weekly series of Lata Mangeshkar songs sung in a particular calender year- a very research heavy project. So, my hands were full on sunday (22 november) preparing for all these articles to be published on 23 november 2020.

By late night on 22 november 2020, I had four articles ready, one for Lata Mangeshkar and three for Geeta Dutt, to be published on the morning of 23 november 2020. I had plans to post another article on Geeta Dutt (this one), as that article was going to be a special article on the occasion of Geeta Dutt’s birth anniversary.

I was not the only one who was busy on sunday. It turns out that our own Gajendra Khanna was also busy. A big Geeta Dutt fan and the administrator of Geeta Dutt site geetadutt.com, Gajendra Khanna had prepared a one hour long programme on the occasion and had left a link of the programme on our whatsapp group. I listened to this programme in the morning. As is his wont, Gajendra Khanna’s programme was extremely well researched and contained new, eye opening informations. It was through this programme that I realised that Geeta Dutt (nee Roy) had not made her debut in Hindi movies in 1946, but it was in 1945 in “Aadhaar”(1945). HFGK contains very sketchy information on this movie and mentions name of movie characters as singers. “Aadhaar” (1945) is her first Hindi movie as a playback singer. I notice that a song Aayi balloon waali aayi re in Geeta Dutt’s voice (alongwith S N Tripathi) is actually posted in the blog with correct attribution. That was thanks to information provide by geetadutt.com, ofcourse. HFGK mentions this song as sung by Shehzaadi. Shehzaadi could well be the name of the character who lip syncs this song in the movie.

This programme also contains some other interesting information about Geeta Dutt. For instance, she has sung over 90 songs in Gujarati. She has also sung in Bangla (her mother tongue), Marathi, Punjabi etc. What is very special is the fact that she sounds a natural in all these languages. For instance, Gajendra Khanna finds her Punjabi diction impeccable in her Punjabi language song that he played in his programme.

It is unfortunate that her married life turned out to be disastrous and such a god given singing talent like hers, that should have blossomed, instead got withered and finally got cut short prematurely, because of the after effects of her unhappy marriage with Guru Dutt.

Despite all the circumstances that impeded her after her marriage, Geeta Dutt has still left us with more than a thousand songs to savour. The blog has 899 songs so far and this article is being written to mark the 900th song of Geeta Dutt in the blog. I was wondering what song to showcase as her 900th song in the blog. Most of her well known songs, including iconic songs are already showcased in the blog. Many of the songs not yet covered either did not fit the bill, or their audio quality was not upto the mark, or the genre of the song did not suit the occasion.

I covered a song that I thought was a nice discovery. But a few hours later it was pointed out that the song was already covered in the past.

So it was back to the drawing board.

Now I have picked another special song. This song is from an obscure movie called “Putli”(1950). “Putli”(1950) was produced and directed by Wali Sahab for Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz Shanti ,Pran, Yaqoob, Husn Banu, Srinath, Majnu, Prem Dhawan, Ramesh Thakur, Sheela Naik etc in it.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. HFGK mentions singers only for three songs. The singers mentioned for these songs are Meena Kapoor for all three songs and a male voice in one of these three songs. There is no mention of singers for remaining eight songs.

What is special about this song is that HFGK is silent about the singers of this song. On listening to the song, it is clear that the song contains the voices of Geeta Dutt and Shamshad Begam. So this song is a “new” discovery as a Geeta Dutt song as well as a Shamshad Begam song.

Uploader of the audio of the song mentions Harikrishn as the lyricist and Aziz Hindi as the music director. While the music director matches with the entry of HFGK, the lyricist does not as HFGK is silent about the lyricist. HFGK Wali Sahab and Abid Gulrej are mentioned as the two lyricists. I think that the uploader of this song has more information about this song as he may have taken this information from the record label.

With this song, Geeta Dutt now has exactly 900 songs in the blog as a playback singer. It is befitting that she should reach this mark on the occasion of her 90th birth anniversary today. What a delightful song to bring up this occasion.

As a great coincidence, this song is the 700th song for Shamshad Begam in the blog and she too completes her century with this song.

PS-Sadanand Kamath Jee has located the video of the song. He identifies the two female dancers as Sheela Naik (lip syncing in Geeta Dutt’s voice) and Cuckkoo (lip syncing in Shamshad Begam’s voice).

gehri gehri nadiya hai
gehri gehri nadiya aur door kinaara re
door kinaara
gehri gehri nadiya aur door kinaara re
door kinaara
tere bina koi nahin apna sahaara re
haaye apna sahaara
apni naiyya ko
apni naiyya ko nadiya ke paar karoongi
apni naiyya ko nadiya ke paar karoongi
chale aana main tera intezaar karoongi
ho chale aana main tera intezaar karoongi
kabhi ganga ke paar
kabhi jamuna kinaar
