There have been quite a few Ghulam Mohammed compositions posted on the blog in the last few days. Any additions of such great but under-rated composers is always a cause of pleasure. I say un-rated because apart from his most remembered Mirza Ghalib (1954) and a rather un-finished Pakeezah(1971), Ghulam Mohammed’s immense talent remains largely unappreciated. It’s another matter that he himself was also to be blamed for remaining behind the curtains of Naushad’s much celebrated successes. It’s no surprise that not much information is available on him. There are not even many photographs of the great composer. However I did find this blog with a very fair and detailed description of his life and works. The importance of his talent can be measured with this line from the same article about his Pakeezah compositions.

So immensely successful were Ghulam Mohammed’s compositions that a few years later, the record company HMV took the unprecedented step of releasing an album of nine outtakes that had been composed for the movie but not included on the soundtrack.

Apart from the two movies mentioned above he composed for 30 more odd films. The complete list is also given in the article referred in the hyperlink above. Lata Mangeshkar and Mohammed Rafi were his most used singers. However a glance at the list also reveals that there are several great songs of Talat Mehmood, Suraiyya, etc.

I was looking for an excuse to post this melancholic song, since 28th July morning when I heard it after many days on Radio Ceylon. Sudhir ji’s post of a song from Grahsthi, late into the night on the same day compelled me to switch off the idiot box and try to finish this work. However my eyes started revolting and refused to co-operate for the completion of the post as a result of which I had to postpone the writing for the next day and had to make some changes in the write-up.

Today’s film of Ghulam Mohammed’s composition is Paras (1949) wherein one has to struggle without success to find a song that can be passed off as average. It has nine songs altogether, each a class by itself. Six of the songs have been featured on the blog and here is the seventh song sung by one of my favourite singers, Shamshad Begum, a post on whom I had presented last year. Two duets of Rafi-Shamshad will be the last songs from this film to be featured here.
Since the film had quite a big female cast, I applied elimination technique and zeroed in on Sulochana Chatterjee lip-singing this song on the screen. I request knowledge readers to confirm or correct me regarding the actress.

Here is the melancholic song sung by Shamshad Begum in her glorious voice.

Song-Barbaadi e dil ko kya royen (Paaras)(1949) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

barbaadi e dil
barbaadi e dil ko kya royen
aansu bhi nahin rone ke liye
hum unse juda
hum unse juda
wo hamse juda
paaya thha unhe khone ke liye
barbaadi e dil ko kya royen

din khatm hua ab raat hui ee ee
din khatm hua ab raat hui ee ee
armaanon ko bhi neend aane lagi
neend aane lagi
kismat se ye keh do
kismat se ye keh do so jaaye
jaagi thhi agar sone ke liye
barbaadi e dil ko kya royen

anjaam ye hoga ulfat ka aa aa
anjaam ye hoga ulfat ka aa aa
pehle se hamen maaloom na thha
maaloom na thha
hum dil hi naa dete
hum dil hi naa dete kaash unhen
yoon dil pe sitam hone ke liye
barbaadi e dil
barbaadi e dil ko kya royen
aaasoo bhi nahi rone ke liye
barbaadi e dil

The ghazal ‘na kisi ki aankh kaa noor hoon’ has been embroiled in a debate about its authorship. This ghazal became popular and well known when Mohammed Rafi sang it for the film ‘Laal Qila’ (1960). The ghazal was credited to Bahadur Shah Zafar, the last Mughal emperor. In fact, this ghazal was picturised on Bahadur Shah Zafar, this role played by M Kumar. The sentiment expressed in the ghazal fitted very well with the status of Bahadur Shah Zafar as the last Mughal king whose writ did not work beyond the walled city of Delhi. It was this that probably led many to believe that the ghazal was the expression of his inner feelings of sorrow and self-pity.
