Lata’s Songs NOT YET covered on our Blog – 12
———————————————————————–

‘Sajni’, a 1956 black and white social film was produced under the banner of Golden Pictures, Bombay by Isabel Cliford and PR Patkar. The film was directed by Vasant Rao Painter. The music, the main highlight off the film, was by the great Sudhir Phadke (popularly known as “Babuji’) with the assistance of Shri Jog.

The star cast according to HFGK includes Sulochana, Anoop Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Sapru, Krushna Kumari, Maruti, Gope, Nimbalkar, Mashelkar, Anand Tiwari, Shardul, Bhiku Deulkar, Thakkar, Mantri, Shailesh, Neela and Master Pakku.

The film had six songs, all by Swar Samragni Lata-ji, whose Birthday we are celebrating today, four solos and two duets with MD Sudhir Phadke ji himself. One duet was written by Nakhshab and the rest five songs were by the great poet Pt Narendra Sharma.

Coming to the superb song, it is such a beautiful haunting melody in Yaman Raag, which will linger in your mind for a long long time after listening to it.  One of the most beautiful songs from the team of Lataji, Sudhir Phadke, and Pt. Narendra Sharma, though “Jyoti Kalash Chhalke” from the same artistes is more famous in comparison (no doubt, that one is a masterpiece too). This sublime song, is also a masterpiece, soulfully sung by Lataji.  Indeed, this song is a musical treat for all of us, the lovers of good music.

Akroor ji, the messenger of King Kamsa, has come to Gokul to fetch Krushn to Mathura.  Knowing that Krushn is to go away the next morning, the pain in the hearts of Gopis is superbly described by the poet in this divine song.

Music director Roshan (another great MD) wrote somewhere about this song:

“Sublime, magical, spellbinding… and divine, these are some of the words that come to mind for this masterpiece. What a wonderful gift to the listeners from Lataji, Sudhir Phadke, and Pt. Narendra Sharma. Lataji has done complete justice to the words so characteristic of songs based on Krishna and virah ras and to SP’s delicate tune. Truly, a soulful rendition from her.”

My personal request to all Atulites is to listen carefully to the pathos-filled words and the soulful suitable music more than once. I am sure, if you follow the meaning of the lyrics, you are sure to moist your eyes.  After that, you have earned my special thanks too.

From my side, I wish Gaan-Saraswati  Lata Didi, to enjoy many years of well-deserved healthy and happy life.


Song – Ja Re Chandr’ Jaa Re Chandr’ Aur Kahin Jaa Re (Sajni) (1956) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Pt Narendra Sharma, MD – Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re
ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

brindaban soona hai
soona mann mera
bidhnaa kuchh aisee kar
kal na ho savera
jharte nayan
bharte nayan
doob rahe taare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

nayan neer
mann mein peer
itni si kahaani
hai ye preet
reet sakhi
pehle kyun na jaani
kal ki sun kal na parey
vikal mann pukaare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re…

pran harey
kaan parey
murali dhun aali
mohan mann naam sakhi
mohan vanmaali
kaise rahe praan
rahe jab na praan pyare
gokul se krushn chandra
jaayenge sakaare
ja re chandr ja re..

ja re chandr
ja re chandr
aur kahin ja re

जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे
जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

बृंदावन सूना है
सूना मन मेरा
बिधना कुछ ऐसी कर
कल ना हो सवेरा
झरते नयन
भरते नयन
डूब रहे तारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

नयन नीर
मन में पीर
इतनी से कहानी
हाय ये प्रीत रीत सखी
पहले क्यूँ ना जानी
कल की सुन कल ना परे
विकल मन पुकारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

प्राण हरे
कान परे
मुरली धुन आली
मोहन मन नाम सखी
मोहन वनमाली
कैसे रहे प्राण
रहे जब ना प्राण प्यारे
गोकुल से कृष्णचंद्र
जाएँगे सकारे
जा रे चंद्र जा रे

जा रे चंद्र
जा रे चंद्र
और कहीं जा रे

In my family and friend circles, there are some musically inclined persons who are fond of Hindi film songs. Among them, I can find fans of Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Mukesh, Kishore Kumar, Talat Mehmood etc as playback singers. But I have yet to come across within my same circles anyone who claims to be a fan of Mahendra Kapoor.

Lat uljhi suljha ja baalam
haathon mein mehandi lagi hai mori

Maathe ki bindiya bikhra gayi mori
Apne haath sajaa jaa baalam

Pag paijhaniya uljha gayi mori
Apne haath lagaa jaa baalam

The above is the original bandish written by saint-poet Chandrasakhi and composed in Raag Bihag.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 3
———————————————————

The first time I heard the name of the film ‘Prarthana’ (1943) was sometime in 2012 when I wrote a short write-up on Jahanara Kajjan, singer-actor of 30s and 40s, for the Blog with her song tumre darshan ka nainaa taras gaye re in Raag Gaud. Since then, the only additional information I could get about this film was that it was a social genre film. The film’s VCD/DVD is not available.
