“Missing the beloved” cum “separation” song form quite important genre of songs in Hindi movies. This blog has close to three hundred songs that fall under this category of “missing the beloved”.

In such songs, it is the lady who is mostly missing her beloved. She tends to miss him the most in the season of “Saawan”. She tends to miss him more in the late hours that say during the day hours.

In olden days, the feeling of “missing” the beloved was more complete that what it is today. Those days, keeping in contact with the beloved was rather difficult. One could send letters but that was a time consuming process and in most cases one was not even sure of getting a reply.

These days, keeping in contact with one’s beloved is so easy. We all have our mobiles and we can keep in contact with our near and dear one’s almost on a regular basis. So, I must say that technology has made separation of one’s beloved rather more bearable these days.

Just think of the past when the luxury of instant communication with others was not avaialble even for the mightiest. Under such circumstances, singing a song of the relevant genre was one of the ways of bearing the separation.

Here is a “missing the beloved” genre of song from “Nakhre”(1951).

“Nakhre”(1951) was produced by Mohanlal Wahai and directed by Surya Kumar for Paro Pictures, Bombay. This by now forgotten movie had Geeta Bali, Nasir Khan, Jeewan, David, Heera Sawant, Vijaya, Badri Prasad, Ramesh, Laxmanrao, M S Pathak, Paro etc in it.

There were ten songs in this movie that were sung by eight singers and penned by four lyricists. Three songs from the movie has been discussed in the blog. The song under discussion is the fourth song from “Nakhre”(1951) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

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.


Song-Andhiyaari kaari raat mein (Nakhre)(1951) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
baadarva rim-jhim barse
mera jiyara tum bin tarse
tum door wahaan
majboor yahaan
main baithi aas lagaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
barsaat ki in raaton ko
tarsoon main mulaakaaton ko
bas ye falak dikhla ke jhalak
koi man ki pyaas bujhaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
is baadal hi ke bahaane
aa jaao to hum jaanen
hui kab ki khadi
ginti hai ghadi
aur ghadiyaan beeti jaaye
andhiyaari kaari raat mein
saawan ki barsaat mein
teri yaad sataaye ho
mohe neend na aaye ho

Remembering Geeta Dutt.

She passed away 45 years ago on 20th July in 1972, brining to close a tumultuous and tragic life, all of 41 years. A voice that held so much promise, and yes, she gave too, so many wonderful gems to remember her by. Just going by the numbers – the decade of 1950s carries close to 850 songs sung by her. And then, in the 1960s, she has recorded less than hundred. And the majority of them belonging to the first half of the decade.

Emotional stability and personal circumstances have such big impact on the performance and output of an artist. It is difficult, and even unfair, to comment on a artist’s portfolio of work, trying to juxtapose it against the personal ups and downs. But in some cases, it stands out quite starkly. The 1950s were the heydays for Geeta Rai, later to be Geeta Dutt, when she married Guru Dutt in 1953. But then, subsequently, a film maker’s life became an impediment in the relationship. Both spouses are artists and creators par excellence, and based on what is written about them, also very sensitive individuals. Thankfully, both are non-compete. And yet, the personal affairs, and the airing of these personal matters in public and media, took a heavy toll of personal energy and emotions, impairing to an extent, their abilities to perform.

In early 1960s, we see a slowdown in Geeta’s output. And then, the tragedy strikes – come 1964 and Guru Dutt is no more. The devastation that descends on Geeta is visible simply from the quantum of her artistic output. Especially in the latter half of 1960s, the songs by her are reduced to a trickle, with just a handful being recorded each year.

The decade turns into 1970s. Just one released film ‘Anubhav’ (1971) with a set of three superb renditions. For a moment, the media, the industry watchers and the listeners, are all agog. The expectations rise once again; here a comeback seems to be in the offing. But then a more tragic news follows almost immediately. She herself is gone; just in 1971 itself. A brilliant blaze that is gone in a flash. The world would no more hear any new songs in her voice. And the songs of ‘Anubhav’ – three recordings that are so full of life, are so reminiscent of the Geeta of 1950s – these become her swansong, so unfortunately. Speculations is all that remains.

For today’s remembrance I am able to pull out this touchingly poignant rendition from one of her very early films, not easily remembered and not easily available. The year is 1947. The industry and the listening public has already stood up to the vibrant sounds of ‘Do Bhai’ that have been rendered under the baton of SD Burman. In the same year, the film ‘Jadui Ratan’ was released. And this new voice of a young girl of 16 is taken up by Chitragupt, another relatively newcomer in the industry, for this film. The film is produced under the banner of Kismet Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by Natwar Shyam. Chitragupt had young Geeta Roy sing two duets and one solo song in this film.

I am presenting today the solo song – “Rut Badal Gayi, Wo Taraana Badal Gaya”. Geet Kosh lists two songwriters for this film namely Behzaad and Kamlakant. However, the assignment of specific songs to individual songwriters has not been made.

A tender and touching melody from seventy years ago, sung by a young girl of 16 at the time of recording. Listen to this beautiful rendition, and marvel at the emotive potential this voice carried, at that young an age.

 

Song – Wo Rut Badal Gayi Wo Taraana Badal Gaya  (Jadui Ratan) (1947) Singer – Geeta Roy, Lyrics -[Unattributed], MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

ye keh ke phir guzar gayi
fasl e bahaar bhi
phoolon mein tha jo apna thikaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
main kis tareh sunaaun
tumhen dastaan e dil
aankhon mein ashq aaye
fasaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
kumhla chuke hain phool
sitaare udaas hain
ab intezaar ka bhi
zamaana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

wo rut badal gayi
wo taraana badal gaya
tum kya gaye
ke hum se zamaana badal gaya

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

ये कह के फिर गुज़र गयी
फस्ले बहार भी
फूलों में था जो
अपना ठिकाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
मैं किस तरह सुनाऊँ
तुम्हें दास्तान ए दिल
आँखों में अश्क आए
फसाना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
कुम्हला चुके हैं फूल
सितारे उदास हैं
अब इंतज़ार का भी
ज़माना बादल गया

वो रुत बादल गयी
वो तराना बादल गया
तुम क्या गए
के हमसे ज़माना बादल गया

Missing Films of 1960s – 33
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Unbelievable – that this song is still waiting to be posted.

This gem of a song, a forgotten favorite from the radio listening days. Such a lovely and soulful song, a wondrous melody that enhances the poignancy of the emotions contained within the words. And the words – what an ocean of feelings has been captured and bundled, just within the three phrases of the first line itself,

dil liya. . .     gham diya. . .     kya kiya. . .

The movie title “Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was clearly inspired from the iconic song of “Nastik”(1954) with this mukhda.

“Kitna Badal Gaya Insaan”(1957) was directed by I S Johar for Modern Theatre, Bombay. The movie had Ajit, Nalini Jaywant, I S Johar, Kamaljeet, Uday Laxmi, Shanti, Harbans Lal, Saroja, Anil Dutta etc in it. Inbcidentally, I S Johar was the director of “Nastik”(1954) as well. Ajit, Nalini Jaywant and I S Johar were there is “Nastik” (1954) as well. So it appears that this movie was inspired by “Nastik” (1954) in more ways than one.
