“Neki Aur Badi” (1949) was an Oriental Pictures presentation. It was directed by Kidar Sharma. The movie had Geeta Bali, Pesi Patel, Nazira, Madhubala, Kidar Sharma, Uma Dutt etc in it.

“Neki Aur Badi”(1949) had ten songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the eighth song from “Neki Aur Badi”(1949) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Amirbai Karnataki and a couple of unidentified male voices. Kidar Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan, of course.

I have failed to get the lyrics right at many places. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

I also request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the unknown male voices in the song.

With this song, now two songs from the movie are left undiscussed. These two songs are “Ae ree jaa le aa more kaant ka sandeswa” and “man mein prem ki jyoti jale”. Even the details of singers of these songs are missing in HFGK. So unless these two songs get located, this movie will remain unYIPPEED in the blog. I request our knowledgeable readers to keep a watch for these as yet unavailable songs and sound us out as and when these songs become available.

hamen na roko hamen unke paas jaane do
dahaan e zakhm se kissa e gham sunaane do

Do not hinder us
Allow us to go near them
And permit us to narrate
Our tales of miseries
From the lips of our wounds

ye lambi taan ke sotey rahe hain sadiyon tak
zamaana badla hai ab to inhen jagaane do

They have been sleeping in peace
From centuries now
Times have changed
Allow us to wake them up (into today’s reality)

ye motiyon ke qadrdaan karam se be-zaaid
jigar ke phaile huye aabileh dikhaane do

They play in wealth
And they give rewards of pearls
But they so lack His blessings and grace
Permit us to show them
The blisters that spread on our heart

ye chand aish karen aur ye saikdon royen
ye mehlon mein, aur ye farsh e khaaq par soyen

These few enjoy the luxuries
And these thousands weep in misery
They sleep in their palaces
And these on the carpet of dust

isi ko kehte hain insaaf aasmaan waale
khalq hila ke rahenge ghareeb ke naale

(If) this is Your justice and rightesouness
O Our Lord in heavens
Be it so then
That the lamentations of the weak and the poor
Shall shake the foundations of this creation itself

insaaf aasmaan waale
khalq hilaa ke rahenge
gareeb ke naaleh
gareeb ke naaleh

During 1945-47, Hindi film industry went through a difficult phase. The speculative gains made by some businessmen during the period of WWII which were partly chanellised in the film industry, dried up which affected the film production. When the film industry was just recovering from the after effect of WWII, communal riots broke out on the eve of as well as following the partition, affecting film productions at Bombay (Mumbai)whereas Lahore film industry was badly affected as many film financiers and technicians migrated to India.

The first song from the film CHAAND CHAKORI (1945), jogan banaa ke piyaa chhod gayo galiyon mein was posted on the Blog about 6 years back. Since then, no more songs from the film were covered in the Blog. In the write-up to the first song from the film, Atul ji had mentioned that very little information about the film was available online. At that time, I doubt whether any songs from this film was available on YT as I find that the first and the only song out of 13 songs from the film was uploaded by Atul ji on YT.

Today I had originally lined up another song from the early 50s, to continue with my discussions on the melodies of the decade, which I called ” Melody Yatra of the 50s ” sometime back. However, I changed my mind and considering the oncoming Deepavali, I am discussing a beautiful song ( both to listen and see) from the film ” RAM RAJYA “-43.

The moment the image of Ameerbai Karnataki comes to my mind, I remember some of her most popular songs, mostly full of pathos, melancholy, and devotion. In fact, the most popular songs of her singing career come from these genres. She started her filmy career in 1934 as an actor-singer but realising that the potential for career as a playback singer was bright after the system of playback singing was introduced in Bombay film industry in 1937, she confined herself mainly to playback singing thereafter. After her songs in ‘Kismet’ (1943) became very popular, for the next five years or so, she remained one of the top playback singers. Of the total of around 375 songs she sang during her filmy career, more than 50% was accounted for during 1943-48.

Forgotten Melodies of the 1940s – 22
———————————————————

Music and songs are integral parts of films made in the Indian sub-continent. Even before talkies came into being, musicians used to play musical instruments sitting close to the screen. Sometime recorded songs were played as film’s images got projected on the screen in the silent film era. The main reason as to why music and songs contents in films of Indian sub-continent are comparatively high as compared with those of films of other countries is that we are musically inclined people in our day to day life. Joy, sorrow, romance, seasons, activities, festivals etc are occasions for music and songs for us. Our folk music and songs are testimony to the importance of music in our life.
