Today’s song is from film ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ (1956). The HFGK is silent on the singer names, but MD is indicated as Shafi M Naagari.

The name of the city of Baghdad became famous all over the world after the Arabian Night stories became popular in almost all languages of the world. There was an air of mystery around the city where many or most stories are told by Princess Scheherzade to the Sultan Shahryar. These are said to be 1001 stories, each told in parts every night by her to delay her death. These stories were first published in English in 1706 and in quick time became extremely popular throughout the world.

Our Indian film producers and their ‘Story Departments’ proved one up on the original book and made up their own variety of stories mixing different stories or even creating newer ones and using Arabic names to make them sound as authentic Arabian Night stories. Film ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ is one such film which was a convoluted attempt to ‘make up’ a novel story using permutation and combination of the popular plots. Lo and Behold ! Out came an outlandish, beaten track mixed up story for the film !

But, as always, the devoted audience of such Action/Stunt films really never bothered about the authenticity or the logic of the film stories, nor were they worried about the histrionic talents of the actors. They wanted fights, daredevil stunts, magic, lavish costumes, animal antics and seductive dances for 2 hours. All the rest was unimportant for them.

Producers of such films knew this and hardly gave any credence to the feasibility or logical base to the stories. Instead they employed trained fighters, known actresses, lavish sets, shining costumes, lilting dances and music together with trained horses, dogs, elephants, monkeys etc. In almost all the films starring Nadia, there is h Horse called ‘Punjab Ka Beta’, a dog named gunboat and an old car called ‘Rolls Royce Ki Beti’. (After Nadia joined her friend Homi Wadia’s Basant films, these were changed to Rajput the Horse, Moti the dog, and an old car called Austin Ki Bachhi).

Film ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ has music by Shafi M Nagari. Now, who is this composer ? A search on HFGK  gives 6 more names of films for him, namely ‘Shamsheerbaz’ (1953), ‘Sher Dil’ (1954), ‘Carnival Queen’ (1955), ‘Diler Daku’ (1957), ‘Circus Queen’ (1959) and ‘Chini Jaadugar’ (1959). Well known music expert and collector Shri Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has confirmed that this person is none other than composer Mohammed Shafi.

During the studio system and later on, few known MDs too availed of this trick to find a way out of the rules. For example, Snehal Bhatkar used different names to give music as long as he worked in HMV. C Ramchandra used the name Annasaheb or P Ramakant when giving music to action/stunt films. Even Anil Biswas is said to have used the name Bhola to give music (validation required), Lata mangeshkar gave music in the name of Anandghan, GM Durrani  used the alias Gunjan and SD Batish used Nirmal Kumar. So, it is no wonder that while assisting Naushad for so many years, Mohammed Shafi used an alias for giving music to outside films.

Composer Mohammed Shafi (25-12-1925 to 30-4-1980) was one of those talented artistes of Hindi film music who was only used by others and never got enough credit for his work. He is honoured as the ‘Original Arranger’ in the industry. He was an excellent sitar player. He started with Imperial Film company where he played Bulbul Tarang. In 1937 he went to Calcutta and joined New Theatres. He played sitar in films like ‘Kapal Kundala’ (1939) and ‘Aandhi’ (1940), as an assistant to Pankaj Mullick and KC Dey. He played sitar in film ‘Ujaala’ (1942). In this film, the hero -Prithviraj Kapoor was shown as a sitar player, hence the expertise of Shafi was fully utilised in this film.

Starting with film ‘Haqdaar’ (1946), he gave music to 19 Hindi films and 2 Marathi films. Under his direction, Mohammed Rafi sang his first Marathi song. He worked with Naushad for 14 years as his assistant and arranger. He was considered a ‘Dada’ in background music. He gave background music to about 70 films (for Naushad and others). For ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960), K Asif used to send his personal car to fetch him to studio. It was Shafi who gave the first break to Suman Hemmadi (Kalyanpur) in ‘Mangu’ (1954) and Hemlata in the unreleased film ‘Iraada’. His last film as music director was ‘Dayaar e Medina’ (1975).

Shafi had bought his first car when he was just 15 year old. He had a posh flat in Shivaji Park area of Dadar in Bombay. In the end, everything was gone. He had helped the families of Shakeel Badayuni and Ghulam Mohammed after their deaths. However in his last difficult days, except Rafi Sb, no one came for his help. In the final few months, he suffered from memory loss. His Begum ruefully said – “Good that he does not remember anything. All took his advantage and gave him nothing. There were more things to forget than to remember ! ”

It is said that the entire music of ‘Sohni Mahiwal’ (1958) was done by him. Naushad was sick during this period and did not attend even one recording. The songs “Do Hanson Ka Joda” and “Dhundho Dhundho Re Saajna” from the 1961 film ‘Gunga Jamuna’, were his creations. He used to give tunes to many otherr composers too-whoever asked for help.

The cast of the film ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’ includes Nadia, John Cawas, Krishn Kumari, Sheela Kashmiri, Vijaya Choudhari, Dalpat etc. Most people know evrything about Fearless Nadia (Mary Evans, daughter of Australian soldier Herbert Evans and Greek mother Margaret), but not many people know much about John Cawas.

That way, not much info is available about him either. He was born in 1910 at Jabalpore (in Madhya Pradesh, India), which means he was 2 years younger than Nadia. He was a body builder and joined Wadia Movietone. ‘Hunterwali’ (1935) was his first film, while it was the third film for Nadia. Their on-screen pairing soon became very popular and they acted together in almost 15 films or so. Their last film together was ‘Circus Queen’ (1958). John Cawas also directed some films like ‘Mala The Mighty’ (1942) and ‘Baghdad Ka Jaadu’.

After quitting films John became the Manager of Wadia Movietone and was given the third floor flat in the office building of WM itself, where he breathed his last on 4-10-1993. He was unmarried

Sheela Kashmiri was another small time actress about whom not much is known. She started her career as a child artist in films like ‘Damaad’ (1951), ‘Poonam’ and ‘Rangeeli’ (1952), ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Hamlet’ (1954), ‘Daaku’, ‘Munimji’ and ‘Baraati’ (1955). As an adult, she was heroine in only 3 films – ‘Arab Ka Sitaara’ (1961) (with Kamran), ‘Deccan Queen’ (1962) (with Samar Roy) and ‘Tarzan And Gorilla’ (1963) (with Azaad). In all she did 38 films. Her last film was ‘Baankelal’ (1972). She married the producer AA Nadiadwala, and settled as a housewife in Mumbai.

There are only 5 songs listed for this film, in Geet Kosh. Three of them are already discussed here. Today’s song is the 4th song. This song has no details of singer or record number given in HFGK. Anyway, let us now see the video and enjoy it.

[Ed Note: On screen, we can see John Cawas leading a group of armed men and women, and also leading the singing. There is one more primary singer on screen who is lip syncing the male voice. The lines in female voice are performed on screen by Sheila Kashmiri and Krishna Kumari. I request other readers to please confirm and/or correct these identifications.]

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all our readers. May the 70th Anniversary of India’s Independence bring happiness, prosperity and peace to people of this great nation.

On this occasion, I present to you a Marching Patriotic song, in praise of the Motherland, from the film ‘Sipahsalaar’ (1956). Sipahsalaar means Chief of Army or Commandant . The name of this film is not well known because the lead actor,the composer or the director were not famous at that time. I said ‘ that time ‘ because in the next one year, this film’s hero – Shammi Kapoor would come in a complete makeover of appearance (without his funny unbecoming moustache) and style of acting with the film ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957). Later on, he wrote a glorious chapter in the history of Indian cinema.

Nadira, the heroine in this film, had become an overnight glittering star with her very first film ‘Aan’ (1952). However, this good luck slowly but surely diminished over next few years and she ended up doing side and character roles.

Born as a Baghdadi Jew, on 5-12-1932, with a name of Farhat Khatoon Ezekiel, her mother was Iraqi and father was Egyptian. She was the only girl in the family. She had 2 brothers. First she wanted to become a nun and then a doctor, but financial difficulties forced her to learn shorthand and typing. Being attractive, she had many boy friends. One day, along with her boy friend, she went for a party of film world. Kardar, Mehboob, SU Sunny etc. were present there and naturally they were impressed with her good looks and sophistication. Mehboob Khan was the first to contact her and sign a contract with her for Rs. 1200 p.m.

For first 3 months, there was no work, except watching the shooting daily and learning things. She did not get her pay, as she did not ask for it. When Mehboob came to know, she was given Rs 3600 all at one time. 65 years ago, this was a big amount !

Her first film ‘Aan’ became a hit. In her second film ‘Naghma’ (1953), she fell in love with the Producer / Director / Lyricist Nakshab Jarachavi, and they got married. Unfortunately, she could not tolerate his narrow minded restrictions on her social life and the marriage broke within 2 years. Then she married a non filmi person, but this marriage too broke very soon. After these two failed alliances, she remained single forever. Nadira worked with Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand, Ashok kumar, Raaj kumar, Talat mehmood and almost every known actor of that era. She was the first actress to own a Rolls Royce car in Bombay. But later on she worked even in B and C grade films to survive. She won a Filmfare award for her role in film ‘ Julie ‘ (1975).

She acted in 92 films. Her last released film was ‘Josh’ (2000). Her last days were spent in illness and in the company of friends like Nirupa Roy, Nimmi and Shyama. She died on 9-2-2006. Her last rites were done as per Hindu customs, because that was her last wish.

The composer of this film is Iqbal, who has often been mistaken for more famous composer Iqbal Qureshi. While Iqbal Qureshi’s career spanned the years 1958 to 1991,  Iqbal (Mohammed Iqbal), operated between 1953 to 1975. This Iqbal was known as ‘Chhota Iqbal’, probably based on the heights of these two Iqbals. Iqbal Qureshi was more than 6 feet tall.

He started his career with ‘Malika Saloni’ (1953). He gave music to 21 films and 2 unreleased films. His films are –

Malika Saloni (1953)
Jaadugar (1954)
Jaasoos (1955)
Sakhi lutera (1955)
Anokha Jungle (1956)
Sipah Salaar (1956)
Gypsy (1957)
Chetak aur Rana Pratap (1958)
Black Mailer (1959)
Hero No. 1 (1959)
Toofani Teerandaz (1959)
Wrong Number (1959)
Diler Haseena (1960)
Gun Fight (1960)
Jaalim Jaadugar (1960)
Night Bird (1961)
Toofani Tarzan (1962)
Kaala Jaadu (1963)
Black Arrow (1965)
Fauladi Mukka (1965)
Agent 302 (1963)
Unreleased – Gypsy (1960s) and Raajkumar Sooraj (1970s)

Iqbal never compromised on quality singers and used Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur, Asha, Khan Mastana, Meena Kapoor, Madhubala Zaveri, Mubarak Begum, Mahendra Kapoor, Ismail Azad Qawwal, Talat Mehmood, S Balbir, Minu Purushottam, Chandbala etc. His songs do not include, possibly, any Lata number.

After films, he composed several Muslim devotionals with Mukesh and few ghazals with Shailendra Singh. His composition “Dil Ne Chheda Hai Taraana” from film ‘Sipahsalaar’ – a Talat-Asha duet, is included by HMV in their Classic selection.

With all this, Iqbal remained a small time composer, an action film music director, unlike his same name counterpart who bathed in the glory of hit songs. Iqbal’s only hit film,’Sipahsalaar’ is also invariably included in Iqbal Qureshi’s filmography, which is injustice to poor Iqbal !

‘Sipahsalaar’ is an Eagle Films, Bombay presentation by its owner FC Mehra. This was quite an entertaining costume drama wherein Shammi Kapoor donned the cowboy dress for a major part of the film. Unfortunately all the prints of this film were destroyed in a fire and today, the film is not available anywhere. Shammi Kapoor always regretted that he did not keep a copy of this film with him.

I have seen the film. Since I find that many people are curious about this film, based on my notes I give herewith a short synopsis of the film. If you are unable to see the film, at least here is some information about it.

It is an Eagle Films presentation, produced by FC Mehra and directed by Mohd. Hussain ( 25-2-1918 to 25-7-1980, total films 39) who also wrote its story, screenplay and dialogues as well. Music was by Iqbal with lyrics from Farooque Qaiser.

The evil Vazir of Bharatpur (Randhir) ousts the good king (Uma Dutt) and captures the throne. The good but helpless king escapes to another country. However his loyal, trustworthy and brave Sipahsalaar (S Nazir) goes underground and continues guerrilla fighting with the Vazir.

The king wants to send a plan to recapture his kingdom to his Sipahsalaar. For this purpose he chooses Captain Shyam (Shammi Kapoor). He is ready to undertake this dangerous mission. Disguised as a truck driver, the Captain starts his journey, but is recognised and stopped by a major (Shyam Kumar) at the border. At this time a mysterious, beautiful patriot girl Radha (Nadira) saves him and both escape in the jungle.

Hereafter the film depicts many adventures, jungle scenes and moments of love between Shammi Kapoor and Nadira, including some songs.

They finally reach Sipahsalaar, and deliver the message. However while regaining the kingdom, there is a battle and the Sipahsalaar sacrifices his life for the king.

As far as today’s song is concerned, it seems there is also a second part of this song, which was only in the film and no record was ever made. The second part was played in the background at the last scene when the Sipahsalaar dies in the battle, after regaining the kingdom for the ousted king.

This is a fitting song for today’s occasion. Let us enjoy it……

“Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) was directed by Datta Dharmadhikaari for Sudarshan Chitra, Bombay.

This movie had eight songs in it. It appears that each and every song in this movie was a female solo sung by Asha Bhonsle.

Here is the first song from “Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Gopal Singh Nepali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Avinash Vyas.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. It appears to me that this song(as well as other songs of the movie) was picturised on Nalini Jaiwant.

With this song, “Sudarshan Chakra”(1956) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Mere roop ka jawaab tere paas (Sudarshan Chakra)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Gopal Singh Nepali, MD-Avinash Vyas

Lyrics

mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas

balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas

meri to umr kati sadaa naach rang mein

bin maange pyaar mila aaj tere sang mein

balamwaa tu hi jawaani ki aag

mere roop ka jawaab tere paaaas
tere pyaar ka jawaab mere paaaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas
balamwaa mil ke bujhaaye dil ki pyaas

Saga Of Sleepless Nights -1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

oo oo. . neend na mujh ko aaye,
dil mera ghabraaye
chup ke chup ke, koyi aa ke,
soyaa pyaar jagaaye

कोई तो ऐसी उमर रही होगी, कोई तो ऐसा मुकाम आया होगा ज़िंदगी में, जब किन्हीं जज़्बातों के चलते, कुछ (या फिर कई) रातें आप ने जाग के गुज़ारो होंगीं।

There must have been an age, a time in life, a passage of emotional intensities, when you may have spend a few (or maybe many) sleepless nights – thinking, waiting, contemplating. Yes, they visit us all, the nights of the wide open eyes, when a cloudy sky is an irritating bore – for if the skies were clear, at least you would be able to start counting the stars.

The level and quality of the anxieties may be different, but yes, all of us have experienced such flavors of anxieties, that have kept us awake when we should not have been. Sleep is such a dear and an essential passage, without which our very survival is threatened. And yet, there are compulsions of overriding emotions that sometimes force us to forsake even this essential commodity.

Sometimes we are sleepless because we are too sad; sometimes we are sleepless because we are too happy; and then again, sometimes we are sleepless for we are not sure. And mostly, we are sleepless when we are in love. Sometimes it is because we are agonized over the apparent cruelties of the person we love. And sometimes we are sleepless because we are ecstatic for the messages and favors of love received. And then there are uncertainties that keep gnawing us from the inside – uncertainties of the type that say “he loves me, he loves me not”, or “will I meet her tomorrow again?”.

Such vagaries of love take over the reins of the mind. The body discounts, nay forsakes, the fatigue of the day. The eyes may be clamoring for some rest, but the mind insists on keeping awake. For some reasons, it is the comfort and the pleasure of being alone in the silences of the night. For some other reasons, it is the only time one may have of a private expression of personal sadnesses. Or the only time of private tribulations of anxieties, as one waits for an arrival or a happening. The newly-father-to-be is seen pacing outside the delivery room, sleepless, anxiously awaiting to hear the sounds of the outcome 🙂 (pun intended). It is interesting to recall; of all the childbirth scenes picturized in the Hindi Cinema, the most such scenes are happening in the night. More sleeplessness for all.

Another creature of sleeplessness is – yes, it is the poet. Ask any poet about sleepless nights, and you will be handed over a few sample verses immediately. Long nights and poets have an association that predates even history. A sleepless mind, of the creative type, is sure to string together some words and make a song, eulogizing all the characteristics and the experiences of a sleepless night. Every poet of note, and also those not of note, have all penned verses about tackling sleeplessness – some may enjoy it, others may bemoan it, but none can ignore it or overlook it. A number of sonnets by Shakespeare touch upon this subject of sleeplessness; I shall try to bring that into one of this series.

And Hindi cinema. Of course, yes. Scores of situations where one comes across songs and verses that tell the stories about sleepless nights. The poets and the composers have labored hard to bring us some very beautiful songs that are driven by lack of any comfortable rest. Ah yes, a number of such songs will immediately come to mind. In this series, my effort is to present some real wonderful, but obscure gems that talk about the loneliness of sleepless nights, or yes, even otherwise. What I mean by ‘otherwise’ is the songs that are the tellings about the sleeplessness by one person to the other. Eg. “Ibtidaa e Ishq Mein Hum Saari Raat Jaage. . .” (‘Hariyali Aur Raasta’, 1962) or “Mein Kyaa Kahoon Raat Ki Baat Sakhi Ri” (‘Tilasmi Duniya’, 1946). So yes, we shall be meeting some very familiar songs, and some lost memories in this series.

Today’s song is from an as yet unrepresented film on our blog. The film is ‘Talwaar Ka Dhani’ from 1956. The song is penned by Gopal Singh Nepali, and the music is from the mind of the magic melody maker – Chitragupt. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. Earlier today, Atul ji has an observation about GS Nepali – Chitragupt – Asha Bhosle combination that has come together to create some very memorable songs in the 1950s. This song is one of their best, I must say.

It is GS Nepali’s birth anniversary today (11th August). A lot has already been written about this poet, by me and by Atul ji in earlier posts – “Hum The Intezaar Mein, Ghaayal Tere Pyar Mein” (‘Sultanat’, 1954), and “Jab Sur Alag Ho Saaz Se” (‘Sati Madalsa’, 1955). So I will not repair to the details herein, and will move on with a grand salute to this lesser known poet, who has recently clocked a century of posts on our blog.

The song – well something needs to be said about it. I was actually searching for a song for GS Nepali Sb’s anniversary. In my searches, I came across the film ‘Talwaar Ka Dhani’ of 1956. As has happened so many times before, the songs of this film are sitting with me but I have not heard them. Or not all of them. As I played this song, getting to hear it for the first time, I was simply bowled over. I played it again and again, but I simply do not seem to be getting enough of it into myself. Simply said, this song is a beauty – a beauty of soft melodious expression of some very lovely and meaningful poetry. This song simply is not going away from the mind. The theme being sleepless nights, I then just got hooked on to initiate this series today, with this song – a series that I have been contemplating for more than a year now. The wait simply has been that I have still to fully plan and chalk out the series. But the encounter with this song last night just fast forwarded the decision for me. One song of this film is already posted here on our blog. This is the second song to find its place here.

Listen to this lovely beautiful aria. The starting bars themselves, even before the words start, have such a soothing comforting effect on the mind. I am sure you will fall in love, as I have. And then the voice comes along, with the words. Asha ji is trying to be soft, but simply cannot keep out the playful expectations, that make the sound of this song so cute and endearing. Let me stop my words and let you click the play. And be in love, all over again.

[Ed Note: Ah yes, one more ‘Raja’ song. 🙂 ]

Song – Neend Na Aayi Raja, Tum Yaad Aaye  (Talwar Ka Dhani) (1956) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Gopal Singh Nepali, MD – Chitragupt

Lyrics

neend na aayi raja
tum yaad aaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye. . .
neend na aaye raja

laakhon sitaare
dilkash nazaare
phir bhi kami hai piya
bina tumhaare
nazron mein tum ho to
chaand na bhaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aayi raja

dil nahin bas mein
pyaar nas nas mein
neend chura ke meri
khaao na kasmen
dil nahin bas mein
pyaar nas nas mein
neend chura ke meri
khaao na kasmen
mujhko papiha tere naghme sunaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aayi raja

teri judaai
meri tanhaai
yaad puraani phir se
taaza ho aayi
teri judaai
meri tanhaai
yaad puraani phir se
taaza ho aayi
aise royen kaise
palken milaaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye
neend na aayi raja

neend na aaye raja
tum yaad aaye
thandi hawaaon mein bhi
soya na jaaye. . .
neend na aayi raja

नींद ना आई राजा
तुम याद आए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये॰॰॰
नींद ना आई राजा

लाखों सितारे
दिलकश नज़ारे
फिर भी कमी है पिया
बिना तुम्हारे
नज़रों में तुम हो तो
चाँद ना भाए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आई राजा

दिल नहीं बस में
प्यार नस नस में
नींद चुरा के मेरी
खाओ ना कसमें
दिल नहीं बस में
प्यार नस नस में
नींद चुरा के मेरी
खाओ ना कसमें
मुझको पपीहा तेरे नग़में सुनाये
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आई राजा

तेरी जुदाई
मेरी तनहाई
याद पुरानी फिर से
ताज़ा हो आई
ऐसे रोएँ कैसे पलकें मिलाये
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये
नींद ना आई राजा

नींद ना आए राजा
तुम याद आए
ठंडी हवाओं में भी
सोया ना जाये॰॰॰
नींद ना आई राजा

“Insaaf”(1956) was directed by Kedar Kapoor for Bhagyoday Pictures, Bombay. This movie had Nalini Jaiwant, Ajit, Kamal Kapoor, Ramesh Tiwari, Durga Khote, Helen, Johny Walker etc in it.

There were eight songs in this movie which is described as costume drama (veshbhoosha pradhan) in HFGK. Two songs from the movie have discussed in the blog in the past.

Here is the third song from “Insaaf”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

Only the audio of this song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a fakir song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Daulat ke andhere mein tera kho gaya imaan…Allah ki nazron mein baraabar hain sab insaan (Insaaf)(1956) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

daulat ke andhere mein aen aen
tera kho gaya imaan aan
tujhko na rahi
apne paraaye ki bhi pehchaan

magroor na ho
magroor na ho
apne muqaddar pe o naadaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan

duniya ka ajab rang nazar aane laga hai
ik bhaai hai jo bhaai se takraane laga hai
ik beta hai jo maa ko bhi thhukraane laga hai
o o o
afsosh ke insaan bana jaata hai shaitaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan

zaalim ko har ik zulm se baaz aana padega
looti huyi har cheez ko lautaana padega
insaaf ki aawaaz pe jhuk jaana padega
o o o o
kudrat ka ye kaanoon badalna nahin aasaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan

ye saaz ye mehfil ye taraane na rahenge
ye husn o mohabbat ke fasaane na rahenge
jo aaj hai kal tak wo zamaane na rahenge
o o o o
mit jaayenge ik pal mein gunaahon ke ye saamaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan
allaah ki nazron mein
baraabar hain sab insaan

Picturisation shows a lady (ap apsara ?) trying to seduce a tapasyaleen Shahu Modak. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lady performing the celestial brand of cabarat dance exhorting to jogi (yogi) to go easy of his jog (yog). 🙂

Song-O jogi jog se mat kar pyaar (Aastik)(1956) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-S P Kalla, MD-Narayan Datt

Lyrics

o jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hai din chaar
o jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hai din chaar
rahti hai din chaar
rahti hain din chaar
preet bin jeena hain bekaar
jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hai din chaar

preet se jogi kabhi na darna
preet se jogi kabhi na darna
preet bina jeena bhi marna
preet bina jeena bhi marna
preet rang se ranga huaa hai
ye saara sansaar
jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hai din chaar

neer bina machhli kab jiye
bhanvraa to ras ko hi piye
neer bina machhali kab jiye
bhanvraa to ras ko hi piye
dil se dil jod le
khule preet ka dwaar
jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hain din chaar

apne ko kyon bhool raha hai
apne ko kyon bhool raha hai
sapno mein kyon jhool raha hai
sapno mein kyon jhool raha hai
doob jaaye jo in lahron mein
kabhi na hoga paar
jogi jog se mat kar pyaar
jawaani rahti hai din chaar
o jogi jog se mat kar pyaar

“Naya Aadmi”(1956) was produced by M Somasundaram and directed by Jupiter Pictures, Madras. This movie was basically a dubbed movie where the dialogues as well as songs were re recorded in Hindi. The movie had Anjali Devi, N T Ramarao, Jamuna, Ram Sharma, Raagini, Anwar Hussain, RajaSulochana, Gope, Helen, R Nagendra Rao etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist.

The music director was Vishwanathan Ramamurthy in the original version. HFGK is silent about the music director of this song. According to Madan Mohan’s official site, Madan Mohan had composed music for three songs in the Hindi dubbed version and this song is not among those three songs. So it follows that the song under question is composed by Vishwanathan Rammurty.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a dance song. I requestb our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

In olden days, viz 1970s and prior to that, people, including kids, would wake up at 6 AM and would go to bed at 9 PM. There were elders who would managed to awake till about 10 PM or so. I, as a kid, found it extremely difficult to keep my eyes open after 9:30. Vividh Bharti those days used to have a radio programme called Hawamahal. As soon as I heard the signature tune of this programme, my eyelids would begin to get heavy and I would feel sleepy. This signature tune was more sleep inducing for me that any lullaby ever would be. 🙂 . For those who have not heard the signature song of “Hawamahal”, here is how it sounded like:
