kuchh yaad rahe to sun kar jaa. . .

The nectar tinged fragrance of this voice suffuses through the strings of the heart through so many wonderful renderings. The mind is left amazed by the effortless expressions of the emotions covering the full spectrum of human experience. “Loot Liyo Mann Dheer. . .” is probably the only exclamation that the mind responds with, as it passed through the shower of her musical portrayals.

Kanan Devi – the doyen, the first lady of cinema in Bengal. We remember and honour her today (22nd April), on the anniversary of her birth. During her heydays in the 1930s and 40s, her popularity was so celebrated, that in those years, security had to be arranged when she moved about in public.

She was born this day in 1916, at Howrah. As per her own account, it was a very un-remarkable beginning to a tiny life, in the hands of a couple whom she knew only as her adoptive parents. Her foster father passed away quite early. She and her mother went through some difficult years, and the young Kanan Bala was not able to complete any form of formal school education.

In 1926, a family well wisher, introduced her to the management at Madon Theatres, Calcutta. Kanan was a child of 10 years. She worked in silent films and even did the male lead roles in ‘Vishnu Maya’ and ‘Prahlad’ (both in 1932). Transition from silent films to talkie films was very smooth for her. She had a good command over the spoken word and a remarkable singing talent – it only needed guidance and direction from teachers like Allah Rakha, Anaadi Dastidar, Bhishmdev Chatterjee, and yes, RC Boral.

From Madon, she moved to Radha Films in 1933. She was growing up into a beautiful and sophisticated young woman. In 1937 she transitioned to New Theatres. A regret she carried always – in 1934-35 she was offered a role in New Theatre’s ‘Devdas’ (1935), but could not accept as she was bound by her contract with Radha Films. She worked with New Theatres till 1941, and then moved to MP Productions in 1942.

After her formative years at Madon and Radha Films, her years at New Theatres and MP Productions are the most dazzling years of her career. In both organizations, her films became hugely popular hits, film after film, year after year. The music and the songs of these films made her the first lady singing superstar of Indian cinema. Her last Hindi film was ‘Chandrashekhar’ in 1948, opposite to Ashok Kumar. After this, she turned a producer in 1949, and set up her own company – Shrimati Pictures.

The song being presented today is a such lovely gem from the 1947 film ‘Faisla’. It is a duet sung in accompaniment with Aparesh Lahiri. Music is by Anupam Ghatak; the lyricist’s name is not available. Listening to this wonderful melody, brings to mind another similar song from a decade and a half later. I refer to the Talat-Lata duet from ‘Chhaaya’ (1961) – “Itna Na Mujh Se Tu Pyaar Badha, Ke Main Ik Baadal Awaara”. Although quite different songs, the mind is taken by the similarity in the theme of the song, as the gentleman professes a spirit of freedom, unencumbered by the matters of the heart, and whereas the lady expresses her desire to be together.

As the song begins, the voice of Kanan Devi flows in, giving an expression to the free spirit of the heart – a spirit like a bird that is unaware of the amorous emotions of love. Such a pleasure to listen to this voice.

Lyrics

khuli hawa mein udne waala
panchhi preet na jaane
haan haan
panchhi preet na jaane
khuli hawa mein udne waala
panchhi preet na jaane
haan haan
panchhi preet na jaane

kyun
wo bhanwara..aa..aa
wo bhanwara..aa ye bhi na jaane
kaliyan
kaliyan kyun muskaati
dard bhare
harne ko ye jhoom
daalon par hai gaati
koyal
daalon par hai gaati

aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa
duniya
is duniya se nyaari
khud hi chala basaane
duniya
is duniya se nyaari
khud hi chala basaane
apni dhun ka raahi kaise ho
prem dagar pehchaane
ho oo oo oo
prem dagar pehchaane
khuli hawa mein udne waala
panchhi preet na jaane
haan haan
panchhi preet na jaane

kyun udne ki aadat koi
panchhi se chhudwaaye
kyun udne ki aadat koi
panchhi se chhudwaaye
baithi hai duniya
unke raste mein jaal bichhaaye
bhola panchhi
ye na jaane
bhola panchhi
ye na jaane
aaj mujhe bandhan mein apne
kyun deti ghutaane
aaj mujhe bandhan mein apne
kyun deti ghutaane
bhola panchhi
ye na jaane
bhola panchhi
ye na jaane

khuli hawa mein udne waala
panchhi preet na jaane
haan haan
panchhi preet na jaane

खुली हवा में उड़ने वाला
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने
हाँ हाँ
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने
खुली हवा में उड़ने वाला
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने
हाँ हाँ
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने

क्यों
वो भँवरा॰॰आ॰॰आ
वो भँवरा॰॰आ ये भी ना जाने
कलियाँ
कलियाँ क्यों मुसकाती
दर्द भरे
हरने को ये झूम
डालों पर है गाती
कोयल
डालों पर है गाती

आ आ आ आ आ
दुनिया
इस दुनिया से न्यारी
खुद ही चला बसाने
दुनिया
इस दुनिया से न्यारी
खुद ही चला बसाने
अपनी धुन का राही कैसे हो
प्रेम डगर पहचाने
हो ओ ओ ओ
प्रेम डगर पहचाने
खुली हवा में उड़ने वाला
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने
हाँ हाँ
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने

क्यों उड़ने की आदत कोई
पंछी से छुड़वाये
क्यों उड़ने की आदत कोई
पंछी से छुड़वाये
बैठी है दुनिया
उनके रस्ते में जाल बिछाए
भोला पंछी
ये ना जाने
भोला पंछी
ये ना जाने
आज मुझे बंधन में अपने
क्यों देती घुटाने
आज मुझे बंधन में अपने
क्यों देती घुटाने
भोला पंछी
ये ना जाने
भोला पंछी
ये ना जाने

खुली हवा में उड़ने वाला
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने
हाँ हाँ
पंछी प्रीत ना जाने

“Ek Kadam”(1947) was directed by Ramnik Desai for Sunrich Productions, Bombay. This “social”movie had Damyanti Sahni, Ansari, Raj Kachlu, Gayatri, Baburao etc in it. Neither the movie nor the actors ring any bells. That is how obscure this movie is.

Even the number of songs in this movie are not known. HFGK lists six songs and leaves blanks indicating that the movie had other songs as well whose details are not known.

Here is the first song from “Ek Kadam”(1947) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Avtar Vishaarad is the lyricist. Music is composed by Prakash Nath Sharma.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Ek Kadam”(1947) makes its debut in the blog. The lyricist and Music director too mark their debuts in the blog with this song.


Song-Panchhi bhool gaya wo gaana (Ek Kadam)(1947) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Avtar Vishaarad, MD-Prakash Nath Sharma

Lyrics

panchchi ee bhool gaya aa
wo gaaanaa

panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana
panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana
bhool gaya aazaad hawaaye
bhool gaya madmast fizaayen
bhool gaya aazaad hawaayen
bhool gaya madmast fizaayen
apni hi uljhan mein uljha hai
apni hi uljhan mein uljha
ab bhoola pankh chalaana
panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana

nabh ko chhoone waala panchchi
aaj hua pinjre ka bandi
nabh ko chhoone waala panchchi
aaj hua pinjre ka bandi
hansti aankhon ne seekha ab aansu bhar bhar laana
panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana

soch soch kar pichhle sapne
soch soch kar pichhle sapne
poore kar dega din apne
poore kar dega din apne
apne hi armaanon se haara
apne hi armaanon se haara
bhoolaa pankh chalaana
panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana
panchchi ee bhool gaya wo gaana

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”.
