“Chal Chal Re Naujawaan”(1944) was directed by Gyan Mukherji for Filmistan Limited, Bombay. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Naseem Bano, Jagdish Sethi, V H Desai, Motibai, Rafiq, Navin Yagnik etc in it.

The movie had twelve songs in it. Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Chal Chal Re Naujawaan”(1944) to appear in the blog. According to HFGK, this song is sung by Shamshad Begam, though I have my own doubts because the voice sounds different. I request our knowledgeable readers to offer their views on the identity of the singer.

Kavi Pradeep is the lyricist. Ghulam Haider is the music director. I have come across the pure Hindi word “Samwaad” (talk) instead of the more common “baat”/ “batiyaa” for the first time in a Hindi movie song.🙂

Only the audio of this song is available. It is clear that the song is a lullaby song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-So jaa so jaa meri laadli (Chal Chal Re Naujawaan)(1944) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Kavi Pradeep, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

so ja
so ja
so ja meri laadli
so ja
so ja meri laadli
so ja
soya gagan mein chaand hai
so ja
soya gagan mein chaand hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

so rahe chupchaap taare
gagan ganga ke kinaare
so rahe chupchaap taare
gagan ganga ke kinaare
har disha ki khidkiyon se
neend karti hai ishaare
neend karti hai ishaare
aaj sapnon se tera sanwaad hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

kaun kehta hai
kaun kehta door ki mehmaan tu
mujhko preetam se mili vardaan tu
tu hai to duniya meri aabaad hai
tu nahin to zindagi barbaad hai
so ja
so ja
so ja
so ja

The saga starts in 1947. It is the runaway hit “Afsaana Likh Rahi Hoon Dil e Beqraar Ka” (film ‘Dard’). Not many artists can lay claim to such a meteoric debut. And also, not many can pride themselves with unbroken partnerships and associations with other artists, that have lasted for an entire lifetime.

When one looks at the sources of stories of Indian movies, one realises that Indian mythological and historical tales have been one of the largest sources of stories.

Missing Films of 1960s – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Hmmm, that is interesting.  As I review the list of missing films for 1962 prepared by Khyati Ben, then starting from ‘Baaje Ghunghroo’ (which was the last film we introduced in the previous segment of this series), I had to drop down to the seventh film below it (in alphabetical order) to reach a film for which songs are available.  After ‘Baaje Ghunghroo’, the films listed are ‘Balidaan’, ‘Bapu Ne Kahaa Tha’, ‘Bijli Chamke Jamuna Paar’, ‘Deccan Queen’, ‘Durga Pooja’ and ‘Fakiron Ki Basti’ – six films for which songs are not traceable.

As is my wont, my attention to films of recent origin is scant and very selective.  Rather, I must say that my attention has to be drawn, nay, dragged towards a recent film, by others in my family, to make me watch one.  The 2005 film ‘Parineeta’, is one of them.  A film that I watched after it was recommended to me.  I would still consider the 1953 edition starring Meena Kumari and Ashok Kumar as the better, more mature portrayal, but nonetheless, I am verily impressed by this newer incarnation of this filming of Sarat Chandra’s classic starring Saif Ali, Vidya Balan and Sanjay Dutt.

Here I come again. Seeing how few posts I make these days in the blog, I have become like a guest poster in the blog these days.🙂

I was thinking of writing a post for a long time but never put thoughts into digital format. I am “The” Ms. Lazybones🙂

Finally, thanks to the mail thread about the November 7th Gangout in Bangalore which is currently in progress with lots of enthusiasm, I am ready with a post.

In the mail thread, our own Sudhir ji added Srinivas Ganti ji inviting him to the gangout. Though Ganti ji is unable to attend it, he shared with us an article written by him on few of Lata ji’s melodies. Being a die-hard fan of Lata ji, I was completely bowled over. I immediately mailed Ganti ji about re-using his article in a series of posts. I didn’t expect him to reply so fast, I got a reply within one hour. Permission was granted🙂 Not only that, he even shared a link where transliteration of the lyrics were made available by none other than him.
