Screenplay is the first stage when a film is said to be born on paper. A screenplay writer translates the story/script from its literary form to an audio-visual presentation incorporating the ideas of the directors as to how each character is to be presented, the mood of the scenes, the surrounding environments, the stance of dialogue deliveries, the camera angles, lighting etc. Some screenplay writers also incorporate the dialogues. Directors like Satyajit Ray would write the screenplay in sketch form, visually presenting the scenes in each sheet of paper, something like what we used to see RK Laxman’s ‘You Said It’ in newspapers. In other words, screenplay is a complete document, representing a film in a paper format.

In a professional set-up, a director of the film would like to have with him a bound copy of the screenplay, a copy of which he would also handed over to each one of main actors, cinematographer, art director, sound engineer, choreographer, lyricists, music directors etc. before the film’s shooting commences. Some of the directors like Bimal Roy used to follow the system (as revealed by Dilip Kumar in an interview) while directors like Guru Dutt did not give much importance to this system as quite often, he used to make changes in the screenplay at the spur of the moment  while shooting (as revealed by Abrar Alvi in his book, ‘Ten Years With Guru Dutt’). In our office parlance, we can call screenplay as a manual of instructions for all those who are closely associated with the making of a particular film.

From the above description, it is apparent as to how important the role of screenplay writers have in the making of films. Unfortunately, most of the screenplay writers are ‘faceless’ in the sense that their faces seldom appear on the film magazines. It was Salim-Javed, the duo who, as a story, screenplay and dialogue writer, attained the status of stars during 1970s and early 80s and their faces became familiar to most of the cinema-lovers.

I am discussing in this article, one of the most prominent ‘faceless’ screenplay writers, an introvert who kept a low profile despite writing screenplays for many Hindi films for over 3 decades, which became popular. Some of his works attained the classic status such as ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Devdas’ (1955), ‘Sujata’ (1959), ‘Bandini’ (1963), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Abhiman’ (1971). He is the Bengali novelist and short-story writer, dancer, theatre actor and the director, Nabendu Ghosh who became a screenplay writer by default.

I came to know about Nabendu Ghosh for the first time about 3 years back when I was going through a book ‘Gulzar in Conversations with Nasreen Muni Kabir’ and Gulzar’s many interviews on the newspapers. In the book and the interviews, Gulzar gave credit to Nabendu Ghosh in shaping his career as a screenplay writer. I became interested in knowing him in details only when I came to know that he had made a statement as early as in 1945 that if at all he joined the film industry, it would be only under Bimal Roy. I found this statement surprising because in Bengali literary circle, he had already attained the status of a star writer due to popularity of his novels and short stories.

During the past few days, I have read books and interviews on Nabendu Ghosh given by his colleagues in the film industry, his own interview on Vividh Bharati and the extracts from his Bengali autobiography, ‘Eka Naukar Yatri’ (‘Traveler of the Lonely Boat’) translated in English by his daughter, Ratnottama Sengupta. On the basis of these sources, I have written his profile incorporating the important events in his life which is given below:

Nabendu Bhushan Ghosh (27/03/1916 – 15/12/2007) was born in Dhaka where he did his early schooling. The family shifted to Patna when his father, an advocate started practicing at the Patna High Court. Nabendu continued his secondary school in Patna and continued his college there completing MA in English literature. During his Patna days, Nabendu joined a local theatre group where he acted, mostly in the female role. He also learnt dancing at Uday Shankar’s Almora Cultural Centre.

Nabendu got a job in DIG’s office in Patna. However, during Quit India Movement, he wrote articles against the British rules. For this, he got warning from his sympathetic superiors from the office not to indulge in writing anti-British articles. Instead of heeding their advice, he preferred to resign from the job and shifted to Kolkata in 1944 where his life as a novelist and short story writers began. By the end of 1940s, Nabendu had became a star writer as his novels and short stories were very popular. During this period, he had written stories depicting almost every aspects of life in Bengal – the famine, the tram, the strike, the rationing, communal violence, partitions victims etc.

On a visit to Rajshahi (now in Bangla Desh) sometime in 1945, he watched a Bangla film ‘Udayer Pathe’ (1945) in a theatre. The film had influenced him so much that he took a vow that if he ever become a writer for the films, it would be for Bimal Roy, the director of the film. Probably, this was more like an emotional reaction to the film rather than his serious intention at that time. After a couple of years, Nabendu had a chance meeting with Bimal Roy in Kolkata who was impressed with writings. But it was not until 1951 when Ashok Kumar invited Bimal Roy to direct the film ‘Maa’ (1952) that Bimal Roy thought of taking Nabendu along with him.

Both for Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh, the migration to Mumbai was not by choice but because of the compelling circumstances. With the creation of East Pakistan (now Bangla Desh), the markets for Bangla films and the Bangla novels and short stories had considerably dwindled thanks to the then East Pakistan Government’s policy of suppressing Bangla language in favour of Urdu. What was thought to be a temporary assignment in Mumbai in 1951 became a long creative association between Bimal Roy and Nabendu Ghosh from 1951 to 1966 as a screenplay writer in 9 films besides doing cameo roles in ‘Do Bhiga Zameen’ (1953) and ‘Sujata’ (1959).

During his 3 decades of association with Hindi films, Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplay for a little over 30 films which included apart from Bimal Roy’s films mentioned above, films like ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Baadbaan’ (1954), ‘Milap’ (1955), ‘Detective’ (1958), ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971), ‘Abhiman’ (1973), “Pratigya’ (1975), ‘Ganga Ki Saugandh’ (1978), ‘Krodhi’ (1981) etc. He also directed ‘Trishagni’ (1988) which gave him the National Film Award for the best debut director. Sometime in the middle of his filmy career, he had directed ‘Doctor Babu‘ (based on Phanishwarnath Renu’s story, ‘Maila Aanchal’) with Dharmendra and Jaya Bahaduri in the lead roles and RD Burman as the music director. When 70% of the film was canned, the producer of the film died leaving the film unfinished.

In 1995, he directed a television serial for Doordarshan, ‘Anmol Moti’ on Ashok Kumar. He directed Children Film Society’s ‘Netraheen Sakshi’ and for Ministry of Health, the film ‘Ladkiyaan’ (1997). He was a visiting faculty at FTII and conducted workshops on screenplay writing during 1967 to 1980. During his life time, Nabendu wrote 26 Bengali novels, 18 collections of Bengali short stories and his only English book – ‘Ashok Kumar – His Life and Times’.

Nabendu Ghosh passed away in Kolkata on December 15, 2007 at a ripe age of 91. Nabendu Ghosh’s last novel, ‘Kadam Kadam’ based on the experiences of character actor, Nazir Hussain in INA, was released during his birth centenary year 2016.

If we go through the list of the films for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote screenplays, it would be observed that most of the films were based on stories from literature. His screenplay writings were so powerful that even in respect of women displayed in the films as fallen from the grace from the eyes of the society, the cine audience loved those characters like Chandramukhi in ‘Devdas’ (1955), Kalyani in ‘Bandini’ (1963), Bijli in ‘Chanda Aur Bijli’ (1965), Hirabai in ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) and Chandni in ‘Sharafat’ (1970). Raj Kapoor had said after the release of ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) that Nabendu Ghosh’s screenplay brought in him the character of  ‘Hiraman’ more than that of Raj Kapoor.

Ratnottama Sengupta, the daughter of Nabendu Ghosh directed one-hour documentary film, ‘And They Made Classic Films’ on the bonding between Bimal Roy and her father based on his interviews. The film was shown at 23rd Kolkata International Film Festival, 2017. One of the interesting anecdotes which Ratnottama Sengupta narrated from the documentary film is –

“On the first day of shoot of ‘Devdas’ (1955), Dilip Kumar was in a tense mood walking up and down on the studio floor. When Nabendu Ghosh asked the reason, Dilip Kumar said that all three are sitting on his shoulders, referring to Pramathesh Barua who directed ‘Devdas’ (1935), KL Saigal who acted in it and Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay who wrote the novel. She said that Nabendu Ghosh buried all three ghosts and painted a fresh picture of Devdas in his screen-play in such a way that even today when we talk of Devads, we think of Dilip Kumar.” [Quoted in an article by Anuj Kumar in ‘The Hindu’, January 5, 2018).

There were some pitfalls in Nabendu Ghosh’s filmy career also. He never got credit for writing screenplay for the film ‘Madhumati’ (1958). In fact, there is no mention of screenplay writer in the credit title of the film. When Guru Dutt selected one of his stories and wanted him to write screenplay for ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’ (1959) on his story, Nabendu Ghosh declined by saying that he was busy with the screenplay of ‘Sujata’. He gave his story to Guru Dutt requesting him to get the screenplay written by someone else. When the film was released, Nabendu Ghosh was surprised to note that he was not credited in the film as a story writer while Abrar Alvi was duly credited as screenplay and dialogue writer.

‘Baadbaan’ (1954) for which Nabendu Ghosh wrote the screen-play, is regarded as a classic film though the film did not fare well at the box office. Vijay Anand who claimed in an interview at Satyajit Ray Film and Television Institute, Kolkata in 2003 that he had seen this film 10 times. He regards it as a piece of literature appearing on the screen. It was more of a screenplay writer’s triumph than the director.

I am presenting a song “Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko” from ‘Baadbaan’ (1954) which is rendered by Asha Bhosle. The song is written by Indeevar which is set to music by Timir Baran-S K Pal. In this song, Asha Bhosle seems to be trying to sing like Lata Mangeshkar, that too the way Lata has sung in ‘Anarkali’ (1953). Of course, this is my hunch.

Song – Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko (Baadbaan) (1954) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Timir Baran, SK Pal

Lyrics

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahoon to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
beh jaaye na teri duniya
aansoo na bahaaungi main
meri haaye na tujhko jalaa de
tere paas na aaungi main
mujhe dekhe na teri nazren
dekhe na teri nazren
ho jaaun itni door
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor
 
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor

thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

Today’s song is from the film ‘Lal Batti’ aka ‘Red Light’ from 1947. It was a social film, made by Janata Chitra, Bombay. The film was surprisingly directed by Nari Ghadiyali – who was known for only C grade action and stunt films. This may be one of the rare social films which he directed. The music was composed by a lesser known music director – Indravadan Bhatt from Gujarat. The cast of the film was Prakash, Rajkumari, Phool Rani, Ali, Firoza, Habib, Vasant Kumar etc. First I thought that this Vasant Kumar in the cast must be the composer Vasant Kumar Naidu, but he was not known to have acted in any film. So, maybe he was someone else. The lyricist was SP Tripathi.

1947 was an year of turmoil – not only for the film industry but also for the whole country. This was the year of partition. The news of the impending partition of India on religious basis was appearing in newspapers since the beginning of the year. Muslims connected with the film industry-especially producers and the directors were in a hurry to finish films on hand before the month of July-1947. Those who had decided to migrate to the new nation Pakistan were not starting new films. Many people were still in two minds.

The entire atmosphere was one of suspicion and mistrust. No one knew for sure, who will migrate and who will stay here. Then there was also the problem of the Hindu artistes operating from Lahore. They too prepared to return to India. Thus the film industry was in a hurry to complete films at any cost before the Partition. This resulted in a very high number of films produced in 1947. A record number of 181 Hindi films were made in 1947 alone. This record was only broken later in 1988, when 185 films were made in Hindi. That means the 1947 record stood unbroken for 57 years (1931 to 1988).

Unfortunately, the year 1947 began with shocking sad news of the death of KL Saigal on 18-1-1947. Despite all the disturbed atmosphere in the country and the film industry, it is creditable that a number of good and musical films were made in this year and some landmarks were also established. For example, Lata Mangeshkar made her Debut as a playback singer in film ‘Aap Ki Sewa Mein’. Singer Uma Devi also sang her first famous song in film ‘Dard’ – “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon Dil e Beqaraar Ka “. Geeta Dutt sang her first 2 famous songs in film ‘Do Bhai’ – “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gaya” and “Yaad Karoge Yaad Karoge, Ik Din Hum Ko Yaad Karoge“.

The revolutionary Muslim Social reform film ‘Elan’ was made by Mehboob Khan. Usha Kiron made her debut in film ‘Lalaat’, with her real name of Usha Marathe. The only Hindi film of the Southern wonder singer MS Subbulaxmi –  ‘Meera’ was released. Noorjehan acted and sang in her last film in India – ‘Mirza Sahibaan’. Madhubala and Raj Kapoor debuted as the lead pair in film ‘Neel Kamal’ and C Ramchandra’s epic musical film ‘Shehnai’ was made with the iconic song “Aana Meri Jaan.. Sunday Ke Sunday“.

As such, since a record number of movies were made in 1947, it was obvious and most likely that the quantity came at the cost of quality.  Most films were not even worth taking a note of. Film ‘Laal Batti’ was also one such film. You will find a new name in the cast – Firoza. Once upon a time, she was very famous and popular. She was one of the earliest Jewish actresses to work in silent and early talkie films. Let us know more about her. This is first time her information is available at one place.

Firoza or Firoza Begum (real name Susan Soloman) was born in a village in Konkan, Maharashtra in 1905, into a Bene Isareli Jew family. By the time she finished her education, she was proficient in Hebrew, Marathi, Hindi and English. In spite of opposition from family, she started working in silent films and soon became popular. Some of her films also became famous and hits. She continued working in silent films till 1934, when silent films stopped being made. Due to family’s opposition, she had to leave her house. She stayed in Bombay.

With the advent of talkie films, she naturally entered talkie films, with ‘Noor E Yaman’ (1935), in a small role. She acted in films like ‘Bhikaaran’ (1935), ‘Aasnuon Ki Duniya’ (1936), ‘Bharat Ke Laal’ (1936), ‘Jeevan Jyoti’ (1937), ‘Dukhiyari’ (1937), ‘Veerbaala’ (1938) etc. Due to her success in films, she fell a prey to false promises and dreamt of working in Hollywood films. She wasted 3 years in this and dejected, started working in films again here with ‘Ek Raat’ (1942), ‘Circus Girl’ (1943), ‘Duniya Diwani’ (1943), ‘Bhaagta Bhoot’ (1943), ‘Andhi Duniya’ (1943), ‘Din Raat’ (1945), ‘Lal Batti’ (1947), ‘Daulat Ke Liye’ (1947), ‘Haatimtai’ (1947), ‘Dilwaale’ (1948) etc.

She became an alcoholic and a chain smoker. She made the mistake of refusing offers from Bombay Talkies and other big banners. Meanwhile she fell in love with actor Chandra Mohan and wished to marry him, but he became a drunkard and died in 1949. Her financial condition became worse. She did small roles in Marathi and Hindi films. ‘Yasmin’ (1954) was her last film.

She lost her parents and lived alone in a single room, where she died unnoticed one day in early 70s. She was one of the top 5 Jew actresses, included in the Documentary ‘Shalom Bollywood’ made by Danny Ben-Moshe in 2003. Thus ended a talented artiste !

(Ack: Information culled from ‘Beete Kal Ke Sitare’ by S Tamrakar, ‘The Untold Story of Jews in Indian Cinema’ – Sunday Guardian, ‘Women in Hindi Cinema’ by Bhavna, Jigna and Supriya, theoneminute.com, HFGK, muVyz and my notes.)

The director of this film was Nari Ghadiyali – an expert in stunt and action films. Nari Kaikhushro Ghadiyali was born as a Parsee in Bombay. He joined the film industry in 1932 and his first directorial film was ‘Jungle King’ (1939). Nari wrote his own stories, screenplays and dialogues. He also edited his own films. He established his own production company called NKG Productions, Bombay.

He was a favourite of another Parsee producer Wadia Brothers and he directed many of Wadia films, including some Fearless Nadia films too. Some of his directed films, out of total 25 films were ‘Namumkin’ (1946), ‘Royal Mail’ (1946), ‘Pistolwali’ (1943), ‘Blackout’ (1942), ‘Red Signal’ (1941), ‘Safed Sawar’ (1941), ‘Lehri Cameraman’ (1944), ‘Lehri Badmash’ (1944), ‘Taxi Driver’ (1944), ‘Hamari Kismat’ (1949), ‘Jio Raja’ (1949), ‘Jungle Goddess’ (1948), ‘Jungle Ka Jaadu’ (1955), ‘Jungle Queen’ (1956).

His last film was ‘Murad’ (1961). This film was produced by Naqi Jehan, his step daughter. Nari married actress Pramila after her husband actor Kumar migrated to Pakistan. Pramila and Nari Ghadiyali lived together for 40 years.

Today’s song is a duet, but HFGK or the up loader of this song do not mention the singers’ names. By the way, 1947 is a year, I find in HFGK also, maximum number of films are without adequate information. May be it was because in a hurry to complete the film, the producers skipped making the film booklets, which normally provide all the information about the film. With today’s song, film ‘Lal Batti’  (1947) makes its debut on this blog.

‘Baadbaan’ (1954) was produced by Bombay Talkies Workers’ Industrial Society, the last-ditch efforts by the workers of The Bombay Talkies to keep the banner alive. The Bombay Talkies was on the verge of its closure when it faced the financial crunch following the failures of ‘Tamaasha’ (1952) and ‘Maa’ (1952) at the box office. ‘Baadbaan’ had star cast comprising of actors who were mostly the well-wisher of The Bombay Talkies. They included Ashok Kumar, Dev Anand, Meena Kumari, Usha Kiran, Jairaj, Leela Chitnis, Sheikh Mukhtar, Krishnakant, Bipin Gupta, Gope etc.

The film was majorly shot in Versova, (locals call it as ‘Vesave’), a fishing village at the outskirt of the then Bombay City. Among the names of the other crew members of the film mentioned here , is the name of Raja H Mura (Harishchandra Mura) as one of the Assistant Directors who assisted Phani Majumdar in the film. I came to know from a facebook upload of a print page concerning the film that Raja H Mura was a fisherman of Versova village near Andheri in Mumbai who also worked as a junior artist in films. It was Raja who made all the logistic arrangements for shootings in the Varsova village and also in the sea. Probably, with his experience of sailing in high sea, the shots involving the sailing of boats and their capsizing in the sea may have been supervised by Raja.

The name of Versova fishermen’s village took me back by over 6 decades. I recalled that I had accompanied my family members to Versova village sometime in mid-1950s to pay a social visit to one of our relatives who ran a grocery shop and a small restaurant in the village.  He was staying in one of the Portuguese types of house, almost similar to the ones I have seen later in Goa. The visit was a full of adventure. From Andheri railway station, we took a horse carriage which dropped us near Four Bungalows (or Seven Bungalows?). From this point, we had to walk through a narrow muddy path for about 15-20 minutes which passed through a swamp to reach the village. Now, Versova is an upscale locality in the suburb of Mumbai though a part of it still retains its old world village charm.

The print of ‘Baadbaan’ (1954) was lost in a studio fire along with some more films. So, the chances of watching this film in the future looks very bleak. Based on Encyclopaedia of Indian Cinema, the broad story of the film is as under:

Lalan (Jairaj), the village headman, leaves to warn fishermen about an impending storm but he goes missing during the storm followed by his wife Leela (Leela Chitnis). Their orphaned child who is left in the house is adopted by the District Magistrate, Choudhary (Bipin Gupta). The child grows up to become Naren (Dev Anand). Educated abroad, he is to wed Bina (Meena Kumari), the daughter of a family friend. Shankar (Ashok Kumar), Naren’s friend and Bina’s music teacher, is also in love with her but keeps his feeling to himself. The marriage of Naren with Bina is called off when Choudhary admits that Naren is the son of a fisherman, adopted by him.

With this background, Naren shifts to  his village where he decides to dedicate his life to the welfare of the fishermen. He starts an ice factory and the workers co-operative society. He falls in love with the village girl, Mohnia (Usha Kiran). In the meanwhile, seeing that Bina is very sad as she misses Naren, Choudhury agrees to her marriage with Naren. But she is unhappy about his rural activism. The death of his wife, Bina in a tragic circumstance leads Naren to be with his own people and also with Mohnia who shares his passion for improving the lots of fishermen in his village.

There are 7 songs in the film written by Indiwar (5) and Uddhav Kumar (2) of which two songs have already been covered in the blog. All songs were set to music by Timir Baran and SK Pal. I am presenting the third song of the film, “Har Roz Kaha, Har Roz Suna” sung by Geeta Dutt. The song is written by Indiwar under the music direction of Timir Baran and SK Pal. Going by the wordings of the song, I guess this song is picturised on Meena Kumari and the situation of the song could be after her marriage with Dev Anand is called off, she is in a sad state of mind.

It is a poignant song which surprisingly eluded the blog for so long.

Song – Har Roz Kaha Har Roz Suna (Baadbaan) (1954) Singer – Geeta Dutt, Lyrics – Indeewar, MD – Timir Baran – SK Pal

Lyrics

har roz kaha har roz suna
ek baat na poori ho paayi..ee
ho paayi
har roz kaha har roz suna
ek baat na poori ho paayi..ee
ho paayi
har roz kaha
 
dil de bhi chuke dil le bhi chuke
dil de bhi chuke dil le bhi chuke
saugaat na poori ho paayi..ee
ho paayi
har roz kaha
 
aakash mein jaise chaand badhaa
aakash mein jaise chaand badhaa
badhti hi gayi mann ki aasha
saagar chalka dhaara nikli
phir bhi ye jeevan hai pyaasa
chhaayi bhi ghata paani barsa
barsat na poori ho paayi..ee
ho paayi
har roz kaha
 
uthti hi rahi saagar mein lahar
uthti hi rahi saagar mein lahar
kuchh kam na huyi chaahat dil ki
paa kar bhi tumhen ye dil na bhara
kuchh aur badhi hasrat dil ki
shehnaai baji aur raat saji
baarat na poori ho paayi..ee
ho paayi
har roz kaha

आकाश में जैसे चाँद बढ़ा

उठती ही रही सागर में लहर

कुछ कम ना हुई चाहत दिल की
पा कर भी तुम्हें ये दिल ना भरा
कुछ और बढ़ी हसरत दिल की
शनहाई बजी
और रात सजी
बारात ना पूरी हो पाई॰॰ई

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 23
—————————————————————————
I could not send any write-up from my side on Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary this year on 08th March. However, I had shared few songs and had compiled an excel sheet on Sahir Ludhianvi’s filmography with the respective music directors, which I intend to use for future posts on the blog as and when possible.

While noting down the movies and number of songs from each movie, I came across the today’s songs or rather this ‘couplet recitation’ song from the movie ‘Dil Hi Toh Hai’ (1963). This song has been mentioned in the list of songs by Sahir Ludhianvi in Akshay Manwani’s book ‘Sahir Ludhianvi – The People’s Poet’. HFGK Vol IV (1961-1970) though does not mention this song in the list of songs under this movie. HFGK mentions ten songs in the movie which have already been posted on the blog.

When I searched for the audio/video of this extra song mentioned in Akshay Manwani’s book it was already available. So, we have an opportunity to bring this ‘couplet recitation’ on the blog today under ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ (since one song from this movie was posted on the blog on 23.04.2010). As this movie has already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog the today’s song comes as ‘bonus’ for all of us to listen and enjoy.

I am presenting this beautiful song here which is lip synced on screen by the beautiful Nutan. In the movie this song happens just before the song ‘Tum Agar Mujhko Naa Chaaho To Koi Baat Nahin’ or rather it is after this ‘teasing’ song of today by the heroine Jamila Bano (Nutan), that the hero Chand Sahab of the movie (Raj Kapoor) gets ‘provoked’ (or inspired ? 😉) to sing ‘tum agar mujhko naa chaaho’…

The situation is that Jamila Bano is a great fan of singer Chand Sahab but she had not met him and there is a party on the birth anniversary of her friend Pushpa where Chand Sahab is suppose to attend the party. However, incidentally they both came across in shop where they intend to buy the ‘birthday gift’. Jamila Bano and her ‘sahelis’, unaware of who this fellow is misake Chand Sahab for a ‘loafer’ (badmaash, peechhaa karne waala😊 ) and when they see the same fellow also following them at the party venue, and when her friends ask Jamila Bano to say something, she recites this she’r directed at Chand Sahab. After this when Chand Sahab is invited to sing Jamila Bano is surprised but Chand Sahab also took this opportunity and he sings

tum agar mujhko naa chaaho to koi baat nahin,
tum kisi aur ko chaahogi to mushqil hogi
😊

‘Dil Hi To Hai’ was jointly directed by PL Santoshi and CL Rawal for ‘Rawal Films’, Bombay. It was produced by BL Rawal. It had Raj Kapoor, Nutan, Agha, Nazir Husain, Leela Chitnis, Babloo, Padmini Priyadarshani, Sabita Chatterjee, Shivraj, Manorama, Mumtaz, Hari Shivdasani and Pran. The story, screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by GL Rawal. Editing was done by Pran Mehra.

Lyrics for this movie were written by Sahir Ludhianvi and music was composed by Roshan. Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As mentioned above the movie has total ten songs as listed below and if we include the today’s ‘couplet-song’ it makes eleven songs in this movie.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door base

The contest between a heart in love and the nights of loneliness is as ancient as the written word itself. Poets of yore, across the ages, and to the present times, have all written about the tribulations of the nights of loneliness. Time does pass at its own pace, but for a lonely heart pining for love, it is as if the time has come to a standstill.

The acute anxiety of the empty moments wherein apparently nothing is happening, is something that cannot be explained in words. It is a sensation that has to be experienced, to get the true flavor of the feelings that are ensconced in the words ‘hijr’ (“हिज्र”) and ‘firaaq’ (“फ़िराक़”) – the feelings of separation, the feelings of being incomplete, the feelings of anticipation, waiting, the feelings of incessant yearning that seems to rend the heart asunder.

Philosophers and poets have ruminated over this experience, and have recommended certain pursuits. There is that famous rhyme that talks about counting green bottles standing on a wall. It is based on the children’s counting nursery rhyme – “Ten Bottles on the Wall”. Folks who cannot sleep are recommended to start from, well, maybe a thousand bottles, keep knocking them down one at a time, and keep a count of the bottles left on the wall. Starting from thousand, this process is bound to get drowsy some way through getting to the target of downing all the thousand bottles from the wall.

The other, of course is counting sheep, jumping over a fence. So just keep a count of the imaginary sheep that are jumping over the make believe fence, and continue counting till the senses give way.

The more esoteric recommendation from the poets, especially for forlorn lovers longing for their mate, is to count the stars. Now this remedy may not work in urban habitats in current times – in best of times with normal pollution levels, about a score stars maybe visible. So this poetic bulwark of heartening proportions does not work in a city like Delhi. Ah yes, but in locales where the skies are clear, this assignment can be undertaken in real earnest. On a clear moonless night, the sky looks so crowded with stars, that the mission of counting stars can be a humbling task. And very well suited for the lonely hearts stricken with the malady of separation and longing.

The beauty of the poet’s mind is simply fantastic and out of this world. It goes even beyond this imagination of being assigned the task of counting the stars. Let me borrow some lines from my own article that I wrote for the song “Aaj Unke Paay e Naaz Pe Sajdaa Karenge Hum”. The lyrics of this song dwells on this task of ‘अख्तर शुमारी’ – the act of counting stars (‘अख्तर’) in the sky. The relevant portion of the lyrics goes like this,

maana shab e firaaq bhi
hoti hai is liye
har nabz e gham isi ke
sahaare guzar sakey
naqaam e ishq hijr mein
taare gina karey
hum intehaa e shauq ki
hadd se guzar gaye
lo aaj hum ne saare
sitaare bhi gin liye
ab ae shab e firaaq bataa
kya karenge hum

And I quote from my write up,

The poet has surpassed many superlatives to weave the fabric of words that makes up this song. Let me give you an example. It is quite a traditional concept in poetry, that a lonely lover in the long nights of wait and anticipation, is advised to count the stars in the sky – a metaphor that implies that neither the stars in the sky will ever be counted, and nor the wait for the beloved ever end. This refrain is encountered often in romantic poetry. But the poet of this song does one better, and goes a step beyond. He says that all the stars are now counted, and so tell me o night of long wait what should I do.

lo aaj hum ne saare sitaare bhi gin liye
ab ae shab-e-firaaq bataa kya karenge hum

A superlative expression that rises to defeat even the task of counting the stars. And poses the question, that in my crazed passion, I have even gone ahead and actually counted all the stars, so tell me what should I do now.

The poet’s imagination is endless, and so this discussion can, and will be continued elsewhere. For now, I present this oh so wonderful song rendered so lovingly by Shamshad Begum, that tells about the nights of loneliness and longing. The film is ‘Sona Chaandi’ from 1946. The lyrics are written by Wali Sahab and the music is composed by Tufail Farooqui.

The film is produced under the banner of New Bombay Theatre, Bombay and is directed by RD Pareenja. The star cast is listed as Chandni, Suresh, Kishori, Saroj Borkar, Kamla, Ghulam Rasool, Amrit Lal, Radha Kishan amongst others. There is a total of 12 songs in this film penned by three songwriters – Wali Sahab, Shamim and Khawar Zamaan. This song is written by Wali Sahab.

So let’s listen to this heartwarming winner in the ‘खनकती हुई’ voice of Shamshad Begum. The protagonist is blaming her beau for her sleeplessness – “तेरे बिना नींद ना आई रे”.

Song – Baalam Harjaai Re, Tere Bina Neend Na Aayi Re  (Sona Chaandi) (1946) Singers – Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – Wali Sahab, MD – Tufail Farooqui

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 11
———————————————————————————

‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ (1978) was directed by Raj Kapoor for his home production RK Films, Bombay. He dedicated this movie to his beloved friend singer Mukeshchandra whom we fondly know as Mukesh.

The cast of the film includes Kanhaiyalal, AK Hangal, David, Hari Shivdasani, Leela Chitnis, Sheetal, Baby Padmini, Baby Komal, Tun Tun, Vishwa Mehra, Mansaram, Pardesi, Shriram Shastry, Nandini, Mona, Seema, Mani, Yasmin, Bina, Subroto Mahapatra and Javed Khan.

The story of this movie was written by Jainendra Jain. Radhu Karmakar was the Director of Photography. Raj Kapoor who produced and directed this movie was also the editor of this movie.

HFGK lists nine songs and one dialogue track released on records of this movie. The total nine songs are including of their parts and the title song is mentioned to be in four parts. There are two more songs (the ‘aarti’ and ‘shlokas’ with the titles, and ‘’Yashomati maiyya se boley…’) in the movie having two parts. Narendra Sharma, Anand Bakshi and Vithhal Bhai Patel wrote the songs for this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Bhupinder, Mukesh, and Nitin Mukesh who debuted as a singer in this movie had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.03.1978 with restricted viewing certificate.

Three songs from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram-1978’ posted on the blog earlier are as follows;

Song  Posted On
 Yashomati maiyya se boley Nandlala  07.09. 2008
 Satyam Shivam Sundaram  15.03.2010
 Suni jo unke aane ki aahat …  11.02.2020

I watched this movie much later in nineties (I think so). However, I remember, in my childhood, the two songs from this movie were very much popular viz. the title song “Satyam Shivam Sundaram“and “Yashomati maiyya se boley Nandlala” as they were frequently played on loud speakers and radio. The title song was also the most favorite number of almost all ‘orchestras’ which used to play it during ‘Ganesh Festival’ or other festival programs. However, I didn’t like both these songs then.

Rather I very much like the song “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” and the song being presented today, maybe I heard them on radio during those years. Later on, when I bought the album of this movie (an audio cassette in late eighties) the song “Suni Jo Unke Aane Ki Aahat” also become my favorite song from this movie with all other songs.

When I checked the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala’ for the year ‘1978’ I found ‘Yashomati maiyya se…’ (as expected), at number seven and the song was, surprisingly for me, not the title song of the movie but it was “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” ranking at number twenty-four of the list.

Well coming back to the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ today we have two songs posted on this day ten years back as follows;

 Song  Movie title-Year  Remarks

Blog

As one of the movies i.e. ‘Anpadh’ (1962) is already ‘Yippeeee éd’ on the blog we have ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ to be represented with a song on the blog today. The song I have selected today was noted long time back and was pending for posting. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Bhupendra. I like this song very much and particularly for those few lines sung by Bhupendra Singh which makes this song very very special of course with great singing by Lata Mangeshkar and so greatly composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal to the beautiful lyrics by Vithhal Bhai Patel.

Let us enjoy this wonderful song now …

(Note: – In the movie, this song appears in two parts. The video of the second part is not available now however full audio of this song is available).

Pardes jaake pardesiya bhool naa jaana piyaa Arpan-1983 02 of 05 songs posted

Today I am presenting a beautiful song from the movie ‘Arpan-1983’. The song is sung by Anwar and as I have mentioned in my post on Anwar I like this song very much.

‘Arpan-1983’ was one of the best musical scores of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I like all songs of this movie and I remember it were very popular then. Though the top three songs in that year’s (1983) annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ were from ‘Souten-1983’ – 01 song and ‘Nikaah-1983’-02 songs respectively at no.1,2 & 3.

However, some of the best music for that year came from Laxmikant-Pyarelal, while Bappi Lahiri and R.D. Burman also gave some of their best musical scores in the same year.

They composed music for as many as twelve movies released in 1983 and the songs from ‘Hero-1983’ released at the end of 1983 ruled the charts in next year i.e. in 1984 and its song ‘tu mera jaanu hai’ ranked at no.1 of the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1984.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

While Jeetendra is lip-syncing in Anwar’s voice, Parveen Babi, Reena Roy, Raj Babbar and others are also present in the picturization of this song.

1982-83 was my ‘10th standard – educational year’ so I was not supposed to watch many movies in that year. But I remember after appearing the Board exams and exams of my younger brothers we get to watch many movies thereafter. In between, cricket was going on as usual and there was ‘World Cup 1983 win’ too 😊

But this movie ‘Arpan-1983’ still remains to be watched for me and as such I cannot say much about it, though I loved its songs very much. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs …

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Missing Films of 1960s – 113
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Famous last words, and all the associated idiomatic paraphernalia that goes along – well, it has happened with me too. 🙂 On Monday last (1st July), while posting the 112th episode of this series, I had, with much fanfare announced that no more films of 1960s are traceable at present. And the very same day, our dear Sadanand ji pointed me towards a link on YT – a song uploaded by Shri Girdhari Lal ji (of Jodhpur), from the film ‘Rang Raliyaan’ of 1962. This film is on the list of 79 films that I posted in that article – list of films that are still to be traced.

And so in my defense I want to state that Girdhari Lal ji is one of the earliest sources that I consulted, while searching for the missing films and songs. That must have been about 3 to 4 years ago, when I had started working on this series. At that point in time, he had told me that, he had not yet started working on the films from 1960s, so he could not say with certainty. Later, as I was getting to close this series, I should have checked with him again, but missed doing that. And this upload has been online for about 11 months now. 🙂

In my article I have written at one place,

The last column gives the no. of films which are not yet available, and I mean, not available from any source, period. As far as my search of the past almost four years reveals, songs of these films are not available anywhere in public domain. I could be wrong, and oh boy, I will be the happiest person to be told that I am wrong 🙂 .

Yes, I am happy to get hold of songs from a very rare and obscure film, and also to bring this film on board. And I heartfully thank Sadanand ji for bringing this song and upload to my notice. Further, I am so glad that providence made me close that article with the lines,

I suspend further publications in this series. I say suspend, because I want to leave the door open for the possibility that any of the remaining 79 films of this decade, may turn up, only God knows where and when.

Well, one of the films did turn up right away. 🙂

Not only has Girdhari Lal ji uploaded these songs online, he also sent me many more details about the film itself, which I am presenting here.

The film is produced by Achchhe Saheb (name given in Geet Kosh). It is directed by Aziz Kashmiri, who has also written the songs in this film. The cast of actors of this film includes Meena, Manhar Desai, Manju, Randheer, Dalpat and Om Prakash.

The film has seven songs, one of which is a long two part song. All songs are written by Aziz Kashmiri. Three music directors have contributed to the film – Vinod, Lachhiram and S Bannerji.  This particular song is composed by Lachhiram. The singing voice is that of Mubarak Begum.

This song is vintage Mubarak Begum. As I listened to this song multiple times, the rendition and the nuances kept taking my mind back to her other hit songs like “Tumhaara Dil Mere Dil Ke Muqaabil Ho Nahin Sakta. . . Bemuravvat Bewafaa. . .”, “Aankhon Aankhon Mein Har Ek Raat Guzar Jaati Hai”, and “Mere Aansuon Pe Na Muskura”. A sad song of a broken heart, I simply do not seem to be able to get enough of listening to it. A very rare and a very obscure addition to our blog – a song whose existence we have not been aware of all these years.

And yes, this find also gives hope and encouragement that more of the missing films and songs may be recovered in time.
Aameen.

 

Song – Kyon Hum Ne Mohabbat Ki Un Se  (Rang Raliyaan) (1962) Singer – Mubarak Begum, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Lachhiram

Lyrics 

kya bhale din the
tabiyat jab kahin aai na thi
chot wo khaai hai dil par
jo kabhi khaai na thi

kyon hum ne mohabbat ki un se
oo oo oo
kyon hum ne mohabbat ki un se
kyon dil ka sukoon barbaad kiya
kyon un ke liye badnaam huye
oo oo oo
kyon un ke liye badnaam huye
kyon khaana e gham abaad kiya
kyon hum ne mohabbat. . .

daaman mein hai gham tum kya jaano
daaman mein hai gham tum kya jaano
majboor hain hum tum kya jaano
tum kya jaano
wo dil ki khushi paayenge kahaan
oo oo oo
wo dil ki khushi paayenge kahaan
kismet ne jinhen nashaad kiya
kyon hum ne mohabbat. . .

ae baad e saba tu jaa ke zara
ae baad e saba tu jaa ke zara
keh dena ye paighaam mera
paighaam mera
hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
oo oo oo
hum aur to sab kuchh bhool gaye
ik teri wafaa ko yaad kiya..aa..aa. . .

क्या भले दिन थे
तबीयत जब कहीं आई ना थी
चोट वो खाई है दिल पर
जो कभी खाई ना थी

क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत की तुमसे
क्यों दिल का सुकूँ बर्बाद किया
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
ओ ओ ओ
क्यों उनके लिए बदनाम हुये
क्यों खाना ए ग़म आबाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
दामन में है ग़म तुम क्या जानो
मजबूर हैं हम तुम क्या जानो
तुम क्या जानो
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
ओ ओ ओ
वो दिल की खुशी पाएंगे कहाँ
किस्मत ने जिन्हें नाशाद किया
क्यों हमने मोहब्बत॰ ॰ ॰

ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
ए बाद ए सबा तू जा के ज़रा
कह देना ये पैग़ाम मेरा
पैग़ाम मेरा
हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
ओ ओ ओ
हम और तो सब कुछ भूल गए
इक तेरी वफ़ा को याद किया॰॰आ॰॰आ॰ ॰ ॰

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

un aankhon mein neend kahaan
jin aankhon se preetam door basey. . .

It was October of 2017, a year and 8 months ago. The previous episode of this series was posted then. After that – this long gap. There have been many a sleepless nights in the intervening months. Yet, somehow I could not get back into the groove with this series. And actually, and inadvertently I should say, two songs that I was saving for this series, got posted otherwise, depleting my list of song. Anyhow, not an issue – the wealth of the Hindi film song still will reveal more songs for this category. 🙂

‘Ek Masoom’, a film from 1969, appears to be a film that likely took some time to get going, get completed and released. This film was rare and unavailable for decades, and it has been recently unearthed and then made available in public domain.

It is a lesser known film of Tanuja, who is paired opposite to a gentleman named Salim Durrani. Yes, the name sounds very familiar, but this gentleman is not the India’s cricketing great, as even I had jumped to conclude first time when I read this name. The cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared in one film – BR Ishaara’s ‘Charitraheen’ (1973). The Salim Durrani appearing in ‘Ek Masoom’ is a different person. From checking the Geet Kosh, it seems that this film is the only one in which this non-cricketer Salim Durrani has appeared, just like his cricketing namesake.

The story of this film is the theme of same-face-confusion. A mix up is caused when two individuals who look exactly alike, happen to inadvertently wander into the life space of one another. One of the characters has links to the world of crime. And so, the mix up results in some predictable situations, where one individual is arrested for the crimes of the other. The matters reach the court, and are finally settled when both of them eventually reach the courtroom at the same time, come face to face with each other, and mix up is sorted out.

Of course, in the interim, the lives of the people connected with this same-face duo, become topsy turvy. The gentleman who is the straight and shareef person, is the love interest of Tanuja. But when the suspicions are cast on his actions and his character, misunderstandings are created, bringing agony to the lady.

This song is the result of that agony Tanuja is undergoing, spending sleepless nights – awaiting for some sign of good hope that may dispel her apprehensions, and clear the air around the man she loves.

And so the refrain from the poet –

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya

 The sleepless nights bother those hearts that are torn asunder with the storms of emotions and anxiety. These storms will keep one awake. Thoughts of what could have been and what may possibly happen, rage through the mind. And the sleep – it is far, far away from the eyes.

Another sleepless night. And another song of sleepless nights.

Song – Jo Na Poore Hon Un Armaanon Ne Soney Na Diya  (Ek Masoom) (1969) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Fareed Tonki, MD – N Dutta

Lyrics

jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
har ghadi tere khayaalon ne rulaaya mujhko
din to kya shab ko bhi
deewaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya

jo na poore hon

yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
yaad jab bhi teri aai to phir aati hi gayi
lakh chaaha magar afsaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
jo tadapte hain wo tadpa bhi diya karte hain
raat bhar shamma ko parwaanon ne soney na diya
dil mein uth’te huye toofaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon un armaanon ne soney na diya
jo na poore hon

जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
हर घड़ी तेरे ख्यालों ने रुलाया मुझको
दिन तो क्या शब को भी
दीवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
याद जब भी तेरी आई तो फिर आती ही गई
लाख चाहा मगर अफसानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
जो तड़पते हैं वो तड़पा भी दिया करते हैं
रात भर शम्मा को परवानों ने सोने ना दिया
दिल में उठते हुये तूफानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों उन अरमानों ने सोने ना दिया
जो ना पूरे हों

Missing Films of 1960s – 102
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As I checked the listings today, I find there still are a good about dozen films of 1960s, and this homework list, that are traceable, available and have to be covered. I was earlier thinking may be just four or five more to go. Ok so, abhi to we are in good stride here, and hope to complete the available list in the next about two weeks. 🙂

Today’s film is ‘Soldier’ from 1969. This film also has an alternate name – ‘Thakur Diler Singh’. And so on YouTube, we find songs available by both names. The film is produced under the banner of PS Pictures, Bombay and is directed by Shyam. An short list of actors – Kumar Ajeet, Deepa, Shyam Kumar, Rajan Haksar, Randhir, Pal Sharma, Parasram, Jagdev, and Bilkis Shabnam.

The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. All songs are from the pen of Aziz Kashmiri, and the music is by the duo of Sonik Omi. Aziz Kashmiri, by this time in his career, was seasoned songwriter. His active career starts at the beginning of the 1940s, and goes all the way to mid 1970s – a recognized body of work of about 230+ songs from about 50 films. To his credit are such notable films as ‘Himmat’ (1941), ‘Iraada’ (1944), ‘Khamosh Nigaahen’ (1946), ‘Mirza Sahiban’ (1947),’Ek Thi Ladki’ (1949), ‘Dholak’ and ‘Sabz Baagh’ (both 1951), ‘Aag Ka Driya’ and ‘Ek Do Teen’ (both 1953), ‘Dekhi Teri Bambai’ (1961), ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’, ‘Yeh Raat Phir Na Aayegi’ and ‘Akalmand’ (all 1966) etc. His last film, as per Geet Kosh, is ‘International Crook’ from 1974.

Today’s song is in the voice of Asha Bhosle. Although the video clips of some songs of this film are available, for this particular song, I could locate only the audio clip. From the sound of it, it seems to be a group dance situation. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to add more information about this song.

Another player from 1960s makes its debut on our blog.  Listen to and enjoy this wonderful creation.

Song – Hum Ne Suna Tha Bada Charcha Janaab Ka  (Soldier) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Aziz Kashmiri, MD – Sonik Omi
Chorus

Lyrics

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
koi maane ya na maane
hum huye tere deewaane
jo pyaar kare iqraar kare
to ban jaaye afsaane
hoy bin poochhe mann ghaayal kar gayi
qaatil teri najariya
chauraahe pe dekha tujhko
lut gayi beech bajariya re
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
kehti hai meri jawaani
kyon qadar na tu ne jaani
ho yaar mere dildaar mere
zaalim hai rut mastaani
hoy gali gali main naach rahi hoon
tere liye bedardi
itna to batla de akela
kya thi teri marzi
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

hum ne sun tha bada charcha janaab ka
nainon ne de daala dhokha sharaab ka
chheen liya chain mera
aa re re re main to maari gai
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja
bajaar saara loot liya o morey raja

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
कोई माने या ना माने
हम हुये तेरे दीवाने
जो प्यार करे इक़रार करे
तो बन जाये अफसाने
होय बिन पूछे मन घायल कर गई
क़ातिल तेरी नजरिया
चौराहे पे देखा तुझको
लुट गई बीच बजरिया रे
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
कहती है मेरी जवानी
क्यों क़दर ना तू ने जानी
हो यार मेरे दिलदार मेरे
ज़ालिम है रुत मस्तानी
होय गली गली में नाच रही हूँ
तेरे लिए बेदर्दी
इतना तो बतला दे अकेला
क्या थी तेरी मर्ज़ी
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा

हम ने सुना था बड़ा चर्चा जनाब का
नैनों ने दे डाला धोखा शराब का
छीन लिया चैन मेरा
आ रे रे रे मैं तो मारी गई
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
बाजार सारा लूट लिया ओ मोरे राजा
