With this post, the blog has now clocked thirteen thousand two hundred unique songs. It may be so that these century milestone are now an expected regularity. But then, it is these (now) minor milestones, that come together and collectively put together and characterize the larger milestones – A journey of a thousand steps is made up of a thousand steps.

Congratulations to all members of the bandwagon. This, and many, many more such milestones put together, are the entire story of this blog.  The ‘wood’ is the outspread treasure that is dear to us, and every ‘tree’ is a different fruit, different flavor. The ‘wood’ – it is our honor and pride. The ‘trees’ – each one is a feast of different flavor and listening pleasure.

As we saunter about the woods and seek to explore newer flavors, the senses want to come to explore and to taste the rare and untouched flavors. The ritual is consistent and persistent. And the wood, it is rife with trees of un-tasted flavors, some of them so rare that it is a realization and a triumph, to be able to seek them, touch them, feel them, and partake of its flavor.

It is an anniversary also that we are celebrating with this song. In the 1940s and 1950s, there was a music director active whose name is simply Premnath. (Mind you, different from the actor Premnath). Today is the anniversary of the passing away of music director Premnath.

One of the mysterious and enigmatic names in the history of Hindi film music – Premnath belongs to that list of music directors who have a reasonably sized body of work spread over a good number of years; and yet, despite having a recognizable body of work, there is very little of almost nothing known about him. I have searched and checked with some of the more important sources of information relating to Hindi films and film music. But have consistently drawn a blank. Pankaj Raag in his book, ‘Dhunon Ki Yatra’, has put in almost a full page to this music director. But the write up is more of a sampling of Premnath’s body of work.

Premnath was born in the town of Gujranwala (now in Pakistan), on 5th July, 1918. His education as well as training in classical music happened in Multan, Lahore and Amritsar. In his early twenties, he gravitated to the nascent Punjabi film industry and Lahore. His did act in small roles – one film identified by Pankaj Raag is ‘Shehar e Khamoshi’. The author also identifies a film ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ from 1938, in which he also sang a song.

In the first half of1940s, he got married and migrated to Bombay in search of a career in films. In 1946, he made his debut in the Bombay film industry as a music director, with the film ‘Rangbhoomi’. With a certain regularity, he would be directing the music for one to three films over a little less than a decade or so.

In 1947 came ‘Dehati’, ‘Pehla Pyaar’ and ‘Chandrahaas’. 1948 saw the release of his most discussed film, ‘Chaand Sitaare’ which carries the popular “Kaali Ghataayen Hain, Thandi Hawaaein Hain” in the voice of Mukesh. As per available information, Premnath was also the producer of ‘Chaand Sitaare’. This film also has some more notable songs in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Geeta Dutt. In 1951 came ‘Alakh Niranjan’ and ‘Maaya Machhindra’. Then there is a gap of a few years, and Premnath reappears as music director in 1959 with the religious film ‘Sati Vaishalini’. In the interim he recorded some songs for the film ‘Qaatil Kaun’, but that one remained unreleased. The career slowly fading away, he appeared as a joint music director for ‘Main Hoon Jaadugar’ (1965) with Nashaad, and for ‘Tarzan In Fairyland’ (1968) with Jimmy (James Singh).

In the few films that he has worked on, there are some notable gems as one gets to listen. The rare song being presented today, in the voice of Amirbai Karnataki, is a delightful composition. The words are from the pen of Rammurty Chaturvedi. Names that are obscure and unfamiliar, have come together to create a beautiful song that is a pleasure to listen to.

Song – Se Naina, Morey Naina Jhuk Jhuk Jaayen (Dehati) (1947) Singers – Amirbai Karnataki, Lyrics – Rammurty Chaturvedi, MD – Premnath

Lyrics

chori chori chupke chupke
jab shyam hamaare ghar aayen
sharam se naina
morey naina jhuk jhuk jaayen
sharam se naina

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 9
——————————————————————–

I am an Atulite and I am proud of it. It is an honor to be associated with a blog that drips pure love of music. Like almost all Indians I love Hindi film music. But I cannot claim to be knowledgeable about it. I do know many songs but that is not a qualification. There are thousands of songs out there, many of which have fallen into oblivion. It is the die-hard music lovers that keep track of these songs and chase them with an assiduity that would make Sherlock Holmes feel jealous.

I am amazed when some of my friends are able to name the movie, singer, lyricist and music director as soon as the song is mentioned. Some Atulites could also tell you charming little stories behind the making of each song. Delving here, I have discovered gorgeous songs that not much known but are as precious as Koh-i-Noor.

It is all kudos to Atul who has, with his magnetic personality, been able to draw so many music lovers into a tight community called Atulites. Congratulations to Atul for the personal landmark of 10000 individual postings. I know the people here, and I know this is merely a stepping stone for many more such achievements.

I have sneaked in newer songs on the blog, often from the current year, to even out the pre-70s bias that this blog has. It is a bias that is perfectly understandable if you listen to the quality of early songs. Nothing that is created now comes close to the kind of music that was once created. Yet, some of the newer songs have a beautiful melody that lingers in your mind.

A little while back some of my friends played a game on facebook where you had to mention the movie you liked best from the year you were born till the current time. Almost all my friends felt they would not be able to name a movie after the 80s. Surprisingly, there was at least one movie per year that qualified to be listed as a good movie. Good movies are still being made and nice music is still being composed. We still have singers who bring a lot of feeling to their songs and lyrics that convey a depth of feeling.

‘Wake Up Sid’ is a 2009 movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Konkona Sen Sharma. It is an odd pair. Ranbir Kapoor is a popular sweetheart and Konkana is an art house favorite. Yet they came together in this quirky film that worked on many levels. As the title of the movie shows, it is primarily about a spoilt rich boy who learns to make his way in the world. It is also about a small town girl who learns how to survive in a big city. Even though she is very sure of what she wants in life, she finds it hard to reconcile with the fact that she has fallen for a younger man.

Time was when songs were sung by the hero and heroine running around in pleasant locales. Now cinema has taken a more realistic turn and songs are more often in the background, depicting the mood of actors. This song is also played in background and has the same feel as a song sung by a wandering mendicant in earlier films.


Song – O Re Manwa Tu To Baawra Hai (Wake Up Sid) (2009) Singers – Kavita Seth, Amitabh Bhattacharya, Lyrics – Javed Akhtar, MD – Shankar Ehsaan Loy
Chorus 

Lyrics

o re manwa tu toh baawra hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai
tu hi jaane tu kya sochta hai baawre
kyon dikhaye sapne tu sotey jaagte
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond
jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

dil me bole koi iktara iktara
dil me bole koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara iktara
goonja sa hai koi iktara

sun rahi hoon sudh budh khoke
koi main kahaani
poori kahaani hai kya
kise hai pata
main to kisiki hoke yeh bhi na jaani
rut hai yeh do pal ki ya
rahegi sadaa

kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa
kise hai pataa

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
naino ko moond moond

jo barse sapne boond boond
naino ko moond moond
kaise main chaloon
dekh na sakoon
anjaane raaste

ओ रे मनवा तू तो बावरा है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है
तू ही जाने तू क्या सोचता है बावरे
क्यों दिखाये सपने तू सोते जागते
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ
देख ना सकूँ
अञ्जाने रास्ते

गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
दिल में बोले कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा
इकतारा
गूँजा सा है कोई इकतारा

सुन रही हूँ सुध बुध खोके
कोई मैं कहानी
पूरी कहानी है क्या
किसे है पता
मैं तो किसि की होके ये भी ना जानी
रुत है ये दो पल की या
रहेगी सदा

किसे है पता
किसे है पता
किसे है पता

जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
जो बरसे सपने बूंद बूंद
नैनों को मूँद मूँद
कैसे मैं चलूँ
देख ना सकूँ
अञ्जाने रास्ते

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 8
——————————————————————–

Mukesh and His Co-Singers – 3
—————————————-

The thought had crossed my mind a few months back. To calculate the sum of all the posts of contributors and subtract it from the grand total which would have given the obvious number. A number big enough to just admire, thank and congratulate with high gratitude. Thankfully, the pen and paper (and well a calculator) did not meet and so we had Sudhir ji planning his modus-operandi.

Else who knows, I would have written a common mail to both which I usually do and spoiled all the fun.

I got to know of Sudhir ji’s plans which he told me in person when I met him for a short visit to his house. Now wait. Isn’t our meeting a celebration to write a post? Yes indeed, but that shall wait for another day.

This post is for Atul ji. To thank him for this wonderful platform that has brought so many like-minded people together. As I write this statement, I have the proof of this togetherness and oneness even when we may not have met each other. When I met Sudhir ji for the first time it was as if we knew each other for decades. The talks directly shifted to songs and we were both in our comfort zone.

I have been fond of old Hindi songs of 40’s and 50’s for a long time. Before the internet era, it was collection of articles, audio cassettes etc. With the advent of internet, all of us were exposed to a wide range of information. This blog was not exactly the first of its kind that I came across. I had downloaded many mp3 songs from different sites. They are in hundreds. However further search and surfing inevitably led me to this blog and there has been no looking back. I first started interacting by making comments, corrections etc. Then there was an urge to send lyrics and finally to qualify as a post contributor. The final step did take me quite a while. My first write-up was not up to the mark as it was some absurd story. I later realised that writing on artists anniversaries and special articles related to the song make more sense. Sudhir ji’s series on Mukesh opened a whole lot of possibilities and thus, I started two series of Mukesh which I hope to continue as long as his songs are available to be posted.

This blog will, in all probability, remain the only reliable source of correct info of HFM songs in such huge numbers and of almost all artists. I am very much certain of it. We have some of the best contributors with very vast knowledge and experience of this hobby. After reading their posts, we imagine ourselves in the midst of our favourite artists. Such is the effect of this blog on our lives.

Among the many selfless deeds of Atul ji, is the fact that contributor’s names are prominently displayed and acknowledged on his blog. That we can write so freely and put our thoughts on the blog is really a wonderful experience. I have sent quite a few posts at the eleventh hour. I am even embarrassed to write that a couple of posts were sent without the lyrics etc. But his large heartedness ensures that the post is complete in all respects. I can’t imagine doing even 1% of what he does day in and day out.

For this post, I have taken the liberty of introducing a new film on the blog. It’s a 1973 released film called ‘Aangan’. Here are the details of the film.

The present song is the ONLY duet featuring Sulakshana Pandit with Mukesh. Sonik-Omi are the composers and the lyrics are by Omkar Verma.  Mukesh Geetkosh attributes the lyrics to Indeewar, but then as always, I sought the help of Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji, who himself revealed the correction.

I wrote a mail at 8:15 pm to him seeking his help in confirming the uniqueness of the duet and in some two hours we had exchanged quite a few mails regarding the song, lyric writer etc. His passion for correct information and continuous help till the doubts are cleared is something to be admired. I will always remain hugely indebted to him.

On behalf of Shri Harish Raghuvanshi ji and myself, I once again congratulate and thank Atul ji for attaining this monumental 10k feat and making us come closer to so many friends with a common wavelength.

One last thing before I close the post. What is the message that we want to convey to Atul ji as far as our support, help and gratitude for this hobby is concerned? Well listen to the first few lines of the song. And agree with me.


Song – Jab Talak Aasmaan Pe Sitaare Rahenge (Aangan) (1973) Singer – Mukesh, Sulakashna Pandit, Lyrics – Omkar Verma, MD – Sonik Omi
Mukesh + Sulakshana Pandit

Lyrics

jab talak aasmaan pe sitaare rahenge
jab talak aasmaan pe sitaare rahenge
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jaan se bhi hamein aap pyaare rahenge
jaan se bhi hamein aap pyaare rahenge 
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumaaree rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumaaree rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain

chanda hai tu main chakori
ho saath apna puraana
ooo baahon mein aa jaa tu gori
ho main hoon tera deewaana  
dil machal gaya
kya jaadoo chal gaya
ab kunwaare na aramaan hamaare rahenge 
ab kunwaare na aramaan hamaare rahenge 
hum tumhaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain

mehka hai tujhse hi gulshan 
ho tu hai kaliyon ki rani
tu jo kahe to luṭa doon
ho tujhpe main zindagani
kya nikhaar hai
haseen bahaar hai
hamase mehke sadaa yeh nazaare rahenge 
hamase mehke sadaa yeh nazaare rahenge 
hum tumaare
hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge 
jee hum tumhaare liye hain
hum tumhaare rahenge

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 7
——————————————————————–

Sudhir ji, got in touch with us Atulwaasis and told us that there is a HUGE milestone coming up on the blog.

I had no clue that it was this huge. With my little knowledge of maths, I did some calculation and it works to an average of around 3 posts a day for the last 9 years. If that just seems like a number to you – you either do not understand hard work when you see it, or you are just a passer by seeing this blog for the first time.

While I still wonder how it is even possible to have such commitment and endurance I am reminded of what Atul ji often tells us – this is a “Labour of Love”. And then it all falls in place and makes so much sense. Atul ji has been a beacon of light, a guru, a nostalgia maker, the man who got all us crazy Atulwaasis together.

While it might seem to a passer by having a look at the blog that it is just a place for a bunch of old hindi songs aficionados, what Atul ji, Sudhir Ji, Arun ji et al are doing is to make sure that knowledge of old hindi songs is preserved for eternity. This in itself is one of the biggest achievements of Atul ji.

He is no less than a Mahendra Singh Dhoni for all of us; who has always kept his cool, given any situation.

An amazing human being who happens to manage work / home / his pets and his blog with equal aplomb. How all these stalwarts manage their time so effectively and beautifully has always fascinated me.

I am one of those Atulwaasis, who has not really contributed much to the blog except for a handful of posts and being part of Project YIPPEEEE!! I was looking for a song that kind of resonates what the blog, Atul ji and Atulwaasis mean to me, and I wanted a song that was full of emotions and feelings and rendered beautifully. That got me to this song that we at home listen to very often. Most of the time it is the first song that gets played when we get into the car. And every time one listens to it, we are bound to be filled with emotions. My wife is a big Sonu Nigam fan and pretty much every time she listens to this song, she is in tears.

This is not an old song, what this blog is all about, but we have posted songs that are new and still good to listen to. One of the singers of today who are really good and is a treat to listen to is none other than Sonu Nigam. Amazing talent and is just a sheer pleasure to listen to him sing.

This particular song is from a remake of an Amitabh Bachchan movie called ‘Agneepath’ (1990). The newer version starred Hrithik Roshan in the role played by Amitabh. For some reason, Hrithik’s mother keeps his sister away from him for a long time and when she is a teenager, the heroine, Priyanka Chopra gets him to meet her for his birthday, and the brother gets so emotional that tries to express his feelings of love and affection for his sister through this song.

I am sure I have not been able to express my love for this extended family of mine. So let me say, thank you Atul ji for letting us be part of the family and be part of this wonderful journey you are taking us on.

Please sit back and enjoy this beautiful song… we love you Atul ji!


Song – Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin Baaki (Agneepath) (2012) Singers – Sonu Nigam, Lyrics – Amitabh Bhattacharya, MD – Ajay-Atul
Chorus

Lyrics

abhi..
mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi
jagi..
dhadkan nayi
jaana zinda hoon main toh abhi
kuch aisi lagan iss lamhe mein hai
yeh lamha kahaan tha meraaa
ab hai saamne
isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa
khushiyaan choom loon
yaa ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zaraa

ho.. abhi mujh mein kahin
baaki thodi si hai zindagi

ho… dhoop mein jalte hue tan ko
chhaaya pedh ki mil gayi
roothe bacche ki hansi jaise
phuslaane se phir khil gayi
kuch aisa hee ab mehsoos dil ko ho raha hai
barson ke puraane zakhmn pe marham laga sa hai
kuch aisa reham
iss lamhe mein hai
ye lamha kahaan tha meraa
ab hai saamne.. isse chhoo loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara
khushiyaan choom loon
ya ro loon zara
marr jaaun ya jee loon zara

अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी
जगी
धड़कन नई
जाना ज़िंदा हूँ मैं तो अभी
कुछ ऐसी लगन
लम्हे में है
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

हो॰॰॰ अभी
मुझ में कहीं
बाकी थोड़ी सी है ज़िंदगी

हो॰॰॰ धूप में जलते हुये तन को
छाया पेड़ की मिल गई
रूठे बच्चे की हंसी जैसे
फुसलाने से फिर खिल गई
कुछ ऐसा ही अब महसूस दिल को हो रहा है
बरसों के पुराने ज़ख़्मों पे मरहम लगा सा है
कुछ ऐसा रहम
इस लम्हे में
ये लम्हा कहाँ था मेरा
अब है सामने
इसे छू लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा
खुशियाँ चूम लूँ
या रो लूँ ज़रा
मर जाऊँ
या जी लूँ ज़रा

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 4
——————————————————————–

कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते मां फलेषु कदाचन ।
मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि ।।
Karmanye aadhikaraste ma phaleshu kadachan
Ma karmaphalheturbhu maate sangostavakarmani

[You have a right to perform your duties but without any expectation.  You have no right to the fruits of your works. Let yourselves be not attached to inaction.]

I used to remember this shloka (verses) during the telecasting of ‘Mahabharat’ on TV. In the recent period, I have once again started recalling this shloka as I find this shloka apt for Atul ji! He has been doing his karma (duties) of posting Hindi film and non-film songs faithfully since the inception of the Blog on July 19, 2008 without expectation of any kind of rewards.

In the sphere of blogging, 10000 posts appearing on one blog on one subject by Atul ji may be a record of some sort. If I take a modest estimate of say 300 words per post, 10000 posts translate to a total words of 3,00,000, that is about half of the word count of the English edition of Leo Tolstoy’s novel ‘War and Peace’. Surely, this milestone is worthy of a grand celebration.

Atul ji started this Blog as one of his interests where he could express his admiration of certain Hindi film songs that he loves. When did his interest turned into a passion? It is not difficult to guess if one goes by the monthly statistics of the songs covered in the Blog. In less than a year from the date of starting this Blog, the daily average number of songs discussed in it, significantly exceeded the original intent of discussing at least one song a day. Now it was not the interest but the passion that was on work.

Over a period of time, the original intent of the Blog to discuss the songs that Atul ji loves has now given room for discussing a much larger canvas of Hindi film and non-film songs. Now the Blog has over 13000 Hindi film and non-film songs. With a paradigm shift to cover all type of Hindi film songs in terms of the number of films as well as the number of films with all songs covered, the scope of the Blog has been considerably widened. With this, the attendant works in maintaining the Blog in terms of accuracy, the mind blowing statistics and some other value additions have significantly increased.

How does Atul ji find time to attend to the Blog work which has become enormous? It is often said that when a person is passionate about his interest, he would find ways to get time and the resources to attend to his passion.  He would not give up his passion irrespective of whether or not he gets motivated and he is appreciated for his work. Of course, motivation and appreciation are tonic for such kind of passion. It is quite admirable that despite Atul ji being a low profile person,  the number of his admirers has been steadily increasing if I go by the comments of appreciations of his monumental work appearing on the Blog and the elsewhere.

Atul ji has always given credit to the contributions of the regular visitors to the Blog as commentators, lyrics providers and guest writers etc whom he calls as his musical bandwagon. This speaks of his modesty. We all know as to how much time he has been devoting and the efforts he has been making to maintain a standard of information on the Blog. A musical bandwagon cannot move and deliver unless it is led by a powerful ‘locomotive’ called Atul Besra.

As a part of the musical bandwagon, I can say about myself that I have interests in Hindi films and non-film songs and about those connected with it. But I do not have passion like Atul ji. Interest can wane over a period of time though after some time, it can also resurface. But passion is perpetual. It is in this context I feel comfortable that the Blog is in the hands of  a person who is passionate about it.

Congratulations Atul ji for achieving a significant milestone of posting your own 10000 posts on the Blog. You have worked very hard to achieve this milestone. You are an inspiration for all of us in pursuing our own passions. More strength to your elbow.

As I said earlier, 10000 posts by Atul ji on the Blog is worthy of a grand celebrations. As per Atul ji’s intention of covering at least one song from the film which is yet to be represented on the Blog, I am presenting a rare song ‘Dil Thha Kabhi Tumhaara Ab Ho Chuka Hamaara’ from the film ‘GAURI’ (1943) sung by Brijmala. The song  is written by Kidar Sharma and is set to music by Khemchand Prakash.

‘Gauri’ (1943) was produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone and was directed by Kidar Sharma. Prithviraj Kapoor and Monica Desai were in the lead roles supported by Shamim, Amarnath, Brijmala, Rajendra, Kamala Chatterjee, Rajkumari Shukla, Raj Kapoor etc. Probably, this may be first film in which  Raj Kapoor acted in an adult role with his father, Prithviraj Kapoor.

This was Kidar Sharma’s second film as a director after joining Ranjit Movietone in 1941, the first being ‘Armaan’ (1942). The story of ‘Gauri’ (1943) was set in Calcutta (Kolkata) and connected with the popular Durga Pooja festival. It was a human relation story around a family of an idol maker of Goddess Durga. The role of the idol maker was played by Prithviraj Kapoor. Monica Desai played the role of Gauri. The film was the 7th highest grossing Hindi films released in 1943.

There were 9 songs in the film which have become rare. Except one song, none of the songs are available on YT. The song under discussion is the second from the film which I have recently uploaded on YT.

Enjoy this lighthearted romantic song with the element of some teasing.

‘Nirmohi’, from 1952 is a film produced by Shriram Sharma, and directed by Baij Sharma for the banner of Sheetal Movies, Bombay.  The cast of actors in this social drama includes Nutan, Sajjan, Raj Mehra, Leela Misra, Chaman Puri, Neeru, Amarnath, CL Kavish, Neeru, Kanchan etc. amongst others. The eight songs in this film are shared between Uddhav Kumar, Indeevar and PN Rangeen, as far as song writing is concerned. Music is by Madan Mohan. This particular song is from the pen of Indeevar. The singing voices are those of Kavita and Lalit Mohan.

Now, both the singer names are unfamiliar. As I scan the Geet Kosh for these names, I find that the name Lalit Mohan appears only in two songs in this film, and nowhere else. In case of Kavita, her name appears in just three films, one from 1948 and two from 1952; and then nothing else. The other song from this film that has the voice of Lalit Mohan, is already posted on our blog – “Aisi Chot Jiyaa Ne Khaai”. I request our readers and friends to please add more information if available, about these singers.

No other information is available about this film. Again, a request for readers to add more information if available.

If we review the status of the artists, when this film was released, we find that most of them are in the infancy of their careers. Madan Mohan had made his debut as a music director in 1950 (‘Aankhen’). The same can be said about Nutan, her first film was ‘Hamaari Beti’ (1950). Sajjan had started his career in early 1940s, in Calcutta, doing bit roles and working as assistant to directors. Like many other artists, he also moved to Bombay in the mid 1940s. Here he gravitated towards Prithvi Theatres, and from that platform he came on to cinema screen. For him too, his first significant role, opposite to Nalini Jaiwant, was in the film ‘Muqaddar’ in 1950.

Indeevar, the songwriter appeared on the scene in 1946, when he wrote the lyrics for films like ‘Black Market’ and ‘Double Face’. As per Geet Kosh records, these are the earliest films where we find his name appearing.

As far as the availability of songs is concerned, luckily the audio version of all the eight songs is available. Seven of these are already posted on our blog. Today, I bring online the eighth and final song of this film, which probably has been sidelined because the singer names are unfamiliar. As I listened to this song while preparing this post, I am surprised, because the song and its rendition are quite delightful. It is peppy number that tells about first love. The music is engaging, and the song deserves more attention than it apparently has received.

And so, with this post, the film ‘Nirmohi’ now joins the rank of ‘Yippeee films on our blog.

Song – Ye Suhaana Samaa, Ye Umangen Jawaan (Nirmohi) (1952) Singers – Kavita, Lalit Mohan, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

gungunaane lagi hai jawaani
hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmmmmm
hmmm hmmm
hmmm hmmm
gungunaane lagi hai jawaani
kehti phirti hain aankhen kahaani
kehti phirti hain aankhen kahaani
raat aankhon mein kab tak guzaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

aate hain jab hwaaon ke jhonke
teri aahat samajh ke ye chaunke
teri aahat samajh ke ye chaunke
raah nis din ye naina nihaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
ye suhaana samaa
ye umangen jawaan
ye bahaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren
mere armaan tujhko pukaaren

jo bin byaahe
mujhko likhe hai
aisi paati
kisey tu likhe hai

naam loon to umariya ghatey hai
hai wohi jo papeeha ratey hai
meri paati pathaa de tu jaldi
haath peeley hon lag jaaye haldi
loon khushi se main teri balainyyaan
jo ghar aa jaaye mora sainyyaan
jo ghar aa jaaye mora sainyyaan

ये सुहाना समां
ये उमंगें जवां

मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें

हम्म हम्म

गुनगुनाने लगीं है जवानी

रात आँखों में कब तक गुजारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें
ये सुहाना समां
ये उमंगें जवां

मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें

आते हैं जब हवाओं के झोंके
तेरी आहट समझ के ये चौंके
तेरी आहट समझ के ये चौंके
राह निस दिन ये नैना निहारें
मेरे अरमान तुझको पुकारें

जो बिन ब्याहे
मुझको लिखे है
ऐसी पाती
किसे तू लिखे है

नाम लूँ तो उमरिया घटे है
है वही जो पपीहा रटे है
मेरी पाती पठा दे तू जल्दी
हाथ पीले हों लग जाये हल्दी
लूँ खुशी से मैं तेरी बलैय्यां
जो घर आ जाये मोरा सैंय्यां
जो घर आ जाये मोरा सैंय्यां

Atul ji’s 10K Song Milestone Celebrations – 2
——————————————————————–

mann panchhi albela
taaron ki nagri mein jaaye

If we replace the word ‘taaron’ with the word ‘gaanon’, it would be apt for this blog. Don’t we all freely wander in this cyber world of songs, lyrics and the stories behind them, as we browse the pages on Atul-Song-A-Day.

Coming to the song itself, this is one of the three Lata gems from ‘Mad Bhare Nain’ (1955). The other two are the romantic numbers “Aa Palkon Mein Aa” and the bhajan “Mo Se Saanchi Kaho Banwaari”.

So this is the Yippeee song for today. I had promised Atul ji that I would do both the debut and the Yippeee songs today. The debut was easy, but getting to the Yippeee turned out to be a ‘tedhi kheer’ today.  Atul ji has shared with me a reference list which contains information about the near-Yippeee films. But then cross referencing and searching for the last missing songs becomes quite a job.  Anyway, finally I have a song that was blocking the Yippeee for the 1948 film ‘Ziddi’, just because it was not available online, and not available easily otherwise. Thankfully I am able to locate it in my collection and have uploaded the song online today.

“वो चाँद सा चेहरा लिए, छत पर तेरा आना

tu raat khadi thi chhat pe
nee main samjha ke chaand nikla

There is something so uniquely desi about this romantic element – ‘chhat pe’ – ‘on the rooftop’ scenario. If it were the western milieu, the thought would be to go as far as the balcony; the scenario being Juliet present at the balcony and Romeo serenading her from the garden below. No where the western writer has thought of ascending to the terrace, bring in the soubriquet of the moon, and then let the verse take over from there. On the subcontinent, so much romance seems to have happened on the terrace, in the pages of prose and in the lines of verse.
