A film by name ‘Shobha’ is already present on our blog. That film is from the year 1942. As I was checking the film lists in the 1950s, I find that there is another film by the same name in the year 1954. This latter film is still to open its account on the blog. Well, that was just before this post came online. Today’s debut film is ‘Shobha’ from 1954.

Checking the Geet Kosh, I find the following details for this film. This film is a social drama, directed by Niren Lahiri, for the production banner of SB Productions, Bombay. The star cast includes Usha Kiran, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chhabi Biswas, Manju De, Shikha Bagh, Purnendu Mukherji, Rani Bannerji, Rekha Chatterji, Trilochan Jha, amongst others. Viewing the list of actors, gives me a feeling that majority of artists associated with this film are of Bangla origin. And there is more to it. The films is based on a story written by Sarat Chandra Chatterjee. And yes, the music director is Robin Chatterjee 🙂 . And yes, surely enough, as I tried to look for more information, I found one comment that says this film was simultaneously made in Hindi and Bengali, and that the name of the Bangla version is ‘Shubhada’.

The film has eight songs which are shared amongst two lyricists – Kaif Irfani and Mahendra Pran. This song is from the pen of Mahendra Pran. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

The song is a story song – actually a tota-maina story. The audio clip that I can locate for this song starts with the line that are captioned in the title. However, when I reference the Geet Kosh, this song has a couple of lead in lines, the first one of which reads – “Maina Boli Sun Re Totey, Aaj Hai Teri Baari…”. And as we come to the end of the song, one of last lines is “Maina Hans Ke Boli Sun Re Totey. . .”. So it seems like a story telling session, probably a mother telling a story to put a child to sleep. And the tale is told as the traditional story telling conversation between a ‘tota’ and a ‘maina’. I am sure few more film songs will blink on in the mind, which also are presented as a ‘tota – maina’ exchange.

So enjoy this simple and short story being told, about a princess who is lonely and sad, but then the prince charming appears on the scene, and they live happily ever after – well, almost precisely to that effect. 🙂

And yes, the 1954 film ‘Shobha’ makes its debut on our blog today.

Song – Hothon Par Fariyaad Chhupaaye Nainon Mein Barsaat (Shobha) (1954) Singer – Asha BhosleLyrics – Mahendra Pran, MD – Robin Chatterjee

Lyrics

hothon mein fariyaad chhupaaye
nainon mein barsaat
neel gagan ki rajkumari
roti thi din raat
hothon mein fariyaad chhupaaye
nainon mein barsaat
neel gagan ki rajkumari
roti thi din raat

sapnon ke toote mahalon mein
ujaley mein andhiyaara
bindiya na kaajal ghar mein
soona jeevan saara
sapnon ke toote mahalon mein
ujaley mein andhiyaara
bindiya na kaajal ghar mein
soona jeevan saara

aankhon se paani bhi rootha
rooth gaya bhagwan
kood padi gehre paani mein
dene apni jaan
aankhon se paani bhi rootha
rooth gaya bhagwan
kood padi gehre paani mein
dene apni jaan

saagar roya
lehren royin
behti nadi royee
saagar roya
lehren royin
behti nadi royee
dukhiaari ke mann ki peeda
jaan na paaya koi

roopnagar se ek salona
rajkumar jo aaya
aaa aaa aaa
roopnagar se ek salona
rajkumar jo aaya
neel kamal ka phool ek
lehron mein paaya

koelen kookeen
bhanwaron ne kaliyon ko geet sunaaye
koelen kookeen
bhanwaron ne kaliyon ko geet sunaaye
raja ne raani ke nainon se
pyaar bhare nain milaaye

chaand hasaa taare muskaaye
maina hans ke boli
sun re totey
des ko phaunchi jaa un ki doli
sun re totey
des ko phaunchi jaa un ki doli

होठों में फरियाद छुपाए
नैनों में बरसात
नील गगन की राजकुमारी
रोती थी दिन रात
होठों में फरियाद छुपाए
नैनों में बरसात
नील गगन की राजकुमारी
रोती थी दिन रात

सपनों के टूटे महलों में
उजले में अँधियारा
बिंदिया ना काजल घर में
सूना जीवन सारा
सपनों के टूटे महलों में
उजले में अँधियारा
बिंदिया ना काजल घर में
सूना जीवन सारा

आँखों से पानी भी रूठा
रूठ गया भगवान
कूद पड़ी गहरे पानी में
देने अपनी जान
आँखों से पानी भी रूठा
रूठ गया भगवान
कूद पड़ी गहरे पानी में
देने अपनी जान

सागर रोया
लहरें रोईं
बहती नदिया रोई
सागर रोया
लहरें रोईं
बहती नदिया रोई
दुखियारी के मन की पीड़ा
जान ना पाया कोई

रूपनगर से एक सलोना
राजकुमार जो आया
आ आ आ
रूपनगर से एक सलोना
राजकुमार जो आया
नीलकमल का फूल एक
लहरों में पाया

कोएलें कूकीं
भँवरों ने कलियों को गीत सुनाए
कोएलें कूकीं
भँवरों ने कलियों को गीत सुनाए
राजा ने रानी के नैनों से
प्यार भरे नैन मिलाये

चाँद हसा तारे मुसकाए
मैना हंस के बोली
सुन रे तोते
देस को पहुंची जा उनकी डोली
सुन रे तोते
देस को पहुंची जा उनकी डोली

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 29

“भूला हुआ फसाना हमको ना था सुनाना

As I continue to search for songs for this series, I continue to keep getting surprises. I keep uncovering uncommonly wonderful gems that either I have not heard before, or keep bumping into songs that are memories from long ago, but not heard for a long time. Today’s song is one that I am encountering for the first time. Searching for a good song starting with today’s alphabet, as I was trawling through the folders of Rafi Sb songs on my hard disk, I found this gem a few days ago. A gem that I had not heard before. The year is 1966. This song should have been in memory banks from radio listening days. But no, I do not recall having heard it before.

How many times have we heard the refrain- real life imitating reel life? Or someone says exactly as in the movies. Well I experienced it last year.
