“Kaneez”(1949) was directed by Krishn Kumar for Caravan Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shyam, Munawwar Sultana, Urmila, Kuldeep Kaur, Cuckoo, Tiwari, Ramesh Sinha, Shyama etc in it.

There were twelve songs in the movie. Eight of these songs have been discussed in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Kaneez”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Zeenat Begam. Shatir Ghaznavi is the lyricist.

The song is picturised on Munawwar Sultana who plays the lead role of a rich heiress who is forced to live as a servant (Kaneez) in her own household becuase of the machinations of the villains, before justice is done and she is restored to her usual position.

The movie had Ghulam Haider and Hansraj Bahl as the two music directors. The music director of this song is not known. I have assumed that Ghulam Haider is the music director of this song. I request our knowledgeable readers to tell us who is the music director of this song.

I have not been able to get a word right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help decipher that word.


Song-Tu ameeron ka khuda hai to gareebon ka khuda kaun (Kaneez)(1949) Singer-Zeenat Begam, Lyrics-Shatir Ghaznavi, MD-Ghulam Haider

Lyrics

tu ameeron ka khuda hai
tu ameeron ka khuda
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
to gareebon ka khuda kaun
tere majbooron ki fariyaad
sune tere siwa kaun

dar badar thokaren khaane
tere gamkhaar chale
tere bandon ne sataaya hai to
laachaar chale
naam rah jaaye tera
naam rah jaaye tera
chhod ke ghar baar chale
teri duniya mein sune
tere gareebon ki sada kaun
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
tu ameeron ka khuda hai to
gareebon ka khuda kaun
tere majbooron ki fariyaad
sune tere siwa kaun

teri chaukhat pe jo sar
apna jhukaaye to gareeb
naaj waale
tere sau naaj uthhaaye to gareeb
tere ?? ki
tere ?? ki kismat bhi banaaye to gareeb
laaj rakhe teri duniya mein
gareebon ke siwa kaun
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
tu ameeron ka khuda
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
tu ameeron ka khuda hai
to gareebon ka khuda kaun
tere majbooron ki fariyaad
sune tere siwa kaun

“Roti”(1942) was produced and directed by Mehboob Khan for National Studios, Bombay. The movie had Chandramohan, Sheikh Mukhtar, Sitara, Ashraf Khan, Kaayam Ali, Jamshedji, Mishra and in a very rare appearance, Malika-E-Gazal Begum Akhtar, who was known as Akhtari Faizabadi in those days.

Begam Akhtar had acted in five movies. “Roti”(1942) was her first movie as an actress. She sang six songs (out of 14 songs in the movie) in this movie which were picturised on herself.

Nine songs (out of 14) have been covered in the blog.

Here is the tenth sing from “Roti”(1942) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Ashraf Khan and it is picturised on himself.

The song is not a “remonstrating with the Almighty” song. Rather it mocks the almighty for the act of being kind towards poor as if it was a favour to the poor !

Come to think of it, the song could well be mocking certain political parties who project themselves as wellwishers of the poor. They would glorify poverty and making sure that poor people are kept poor. They would be offered low quality sops for free or at subsidised prices. Poor people would be denied opportunities to come out of poverty, because they would be fed the myth that it was evil to become rich. The preachers themselves would not practice what they preached, ofcourse.

This hard hitting song is penned by Safdar Aah Sitapuri. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.


Song-Gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho (Roti)(1942) Singer-Ashraf Khan, Lyrics-Safdar aah Sitapuri, MD-Anil Biswas

Lyrics

gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum saamaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum samaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho

inhi ko loot’te ho aur inhe khairaat dete ho
inhi ko loot’te ho aur inhe khairaat dete ho
bade tum dharm waale ho
ye achcha daan karte ho
bade tum dharm waale ho
ye achcha daan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
haha

daro us waqt se jab rang badlega zamaane kaa
daro us waqt se jab rang badlega zamaane kaa
ahahaha
ye tumse lenge badla
jinka ab apmaan karte ho
ye tumse lenge badla
jinka ab apmaan karte ho
gareebon par daya kar ke bada ehsaan karte ho
inhe buzdil bana dene kaa tum saamaan karte ho

“Bhed” (1950) was an an Amba Cinetone (Jal K Baliwaala productions), Bombay presentation. Details of its producer, director, actors etc are not available. Total number of songs in the movie are not known. HFGK gives a list of nine songs and indicates that there may have been more songs in it whose details are not available.

I find that there was a movie called “Do Bahaadur”(1953) which reused at least five songs from “Bhed””(1950). In addition, at least one song from “Ustaad Pedro” (1951) was reused in “Do Bahaadur” (1953). So it is a curious case where contents of past movies (songs, and may be other parts as well) were reused in a later movie. We have noticed in in some other cases as well. For instance, the songs of “Amar Kahaani” (1949) were reused in “Kanchan” (1955). “Amar Kahaani” (1949) had Suraiyya in lead role and she sang her songs there. She was not there in “Kanchan”(1955) though and there her songs were lip synced by another actress.

In other words, “Do Bahaadur”(1953), “Kanchan”(1955) etc are movies that do not have any “original” songs of their own. So we in this blog have avoided describing songs as belonging to these movies.

One song from “Bhed”(1950) has been discussed in the past. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog. This “remonstrating with the Almighty” genre of song is sung by Geeta Dutt (then Roy). Madhukar Rajasthani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Mukul Roy,

Same song was later reused in “Do Bahaadur”(1953) as well though HFGK (part III) has not identified the singer (describing her as a female singer) and likewise the lyricist too has gone unidentified in HFGK in part III. They were duly identified in HFGK part II though for entries against “Bhed”(1950).

The artists of “Bhed”(1950) are not known. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this obscure movie as also on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Fariyaad suno prabhu meri (Bhed)(1950) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Madhukar Rajasthani, MD-Mukul Roy

Lyrics

fariyaad suno prabhu meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
baadal baras rahe hain dukh ke ae ae
baadal baras rahe hain dukh ke
kya maane hote hain sukh ke
na jaana prabu maine ab tak
dekhi rain andheri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri

ankhiyaan ro ro haar gayin een een een
ankhiyaan ro ro haar gayin
sudh kyun meri bisaar gayi ee ee
daya karo he dayalu bhagwan
kaahe karo ab deri
kaahe karo ab deri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri

tere dwaar pe laakhon aate ae ae ae
tere dwaar pe laakhon aate
munh maanga vardaan wo paate
maine prabhu kya tera bigaada aa aa aa
maine prabhu kya tera bigaada aa
rahe museebat gheri
rahe museebat gheri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri

tere ghar se khaali jaaun oon oon
tere ghar se khaali jaaun
aur kahaan main maa ban jaaun
aasha lekar aayi hoon prabhu oo oo
aasha lekar aayi hoon prabhu
bhar de jholi meri
bhar de jholi meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
fariyaad suno prabhu meri
