“Bijli”(1950) was directed by Sushil Sahu for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Ramesh Gupta, Sitara, Vilas Mohbe, Paro, Badri Prasd, Sushir Sahu, Amirbai Karnataki, Satya Narayan, Narbada Shankar, C L Shah, Kanta, Kazmi etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (10 august 2017) is the 67th remembrance day of Khemchand Prakash ( 12 december 1907- 10 august 1950). On this occasion, here is a song from “Bijli”(1950).

This song is sung by two female singers. HFKG mentions them as Geeta Roy and Paro, whereas the uploader of the song mentions them as Shamshad Begam and Paro. But I think that the voices in the song are of two singers who are not Geeta Roy (alater Dutt), Shamshad Begam or Paro devi, three singers whose voices are quite distinctive and different from the voices in the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voices that sound familiar.

PS-Now Sudhir Jee has fished out a clearer version of this song from his collection. There the voices are very clear and they unmistakably belong to Paro and Geeta Roy. I thank Sudhir Jee for helping clarify matters.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This is and lovely song which sounds like a stage performance song where a city slicker lady complains that she is uncomfortable in the village of her beue and she asks him to take her to Bombay. Very cute and justifiable feelings that most people can readily identify with. I too used to groan like this when I found myself going to my native place (a village) during my younger days. 🙂


Song-O mora jiya ghabraaye tere chhote se gaaon mein(Bijli)(1950) Singers-Paro Devi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

mora jiya ghabraaye
uf mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de
na na na na na na
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

tere is chhote se gaanv mein
na motor na rail
ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi mein
kaatoon jeewan jail
balam is jail se chhuda de
balam is jail se chhuda de
dhuaan gaadi pe baitha de
chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk pahuncha de
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

na na na
are wahaan dhaan par ration gori
kapdon par control
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
paani bikta mol
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
chup chhail chhabeele
tera bhola jiya bharma den
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

arre ae
kya likhi karam ki rekha aa
haaye
ab tak na saneema dekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
kaisa thha saawan aaya re
kaisi thhi chandralekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
o mere laadle balam
tohe raam ki kasam
chaupaati ki chaat khila de
haaye mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi meri
jamuna jee ke kinaare
chaand aur sooraj aur ye sitaare
jiske aage bambai tera
pada pada jhak maare
ho gori ye chaandni raaten
aur pyaar ki baaten
zara ghoonghat ki oat muska de
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Three songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Bijli”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash.

The fact that Asha Bhonsle, then an up and coming struggler was offered a solo song by a music director of the stature of Khemchand Prakash means that Asha Bhonsle had begun to create favourable impression among music fraternity. This song is a good example to the early promise that Asha Bhonsle was showing, while trying to find her feet in the industry.


Song-Taqdeer bata kya meri khata (Bijli)(1950) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, MD-Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

taqdeer bata aa

taqdeer bata kya meri khata
taqdeer bata kya meri khata
jiski ye saza paati hoon main
jiski ye saz paati hoon main aen aen aen
ro ro ke hansoon
hans hans ke miloon
mil mil ke bichhad jaati hoon main
mil mil ke bichhad jaati hoon main aen aen aen
taqdeer bata aa

wo aas meri
dil ki dil hi mein toot gayi
ban ban ke meri taqdeer aakhir phoot gayi
ik dard liye seene mein sanam
ik dard liye seene mein sanam
khaamosh chali jaati hoon main
khaamosh chali jaati hoon main aen aen aen
taqdeer bata aa

main kis se kahoon
meri bhi kahaani khoob rahi
meri naav kinaare
aakar ke bhi doob rahi
nazdeek gayi jitni utni
nazdeek gayi jitni utni
ab door huyi jaati hoon main
ab door huyi jaati hoon main aen aen aen
taqdeer bata aa

barbaad thhi main
barbaad chali ee
tum shaad raho
o o o
haaye
dil ki dua
tum phoolo phalo
aabaad raho
aayi thhi tamannaayen lekar
aayi thhi tamannaayen lekar
aur khaaq liye jaati hoon main
aur khaaq liye jaati hoon main aen aen aen
taqdeer bata aa

When I came to know that Shamshad Begam (14 april 1919- 23 april 2013) was no more, I decided to discuss some rare songs sung by her. Accordingly, I some rare songs sung by Shamshad Begam were discussed yesterday (24 april 2013). Those songs were rare, but their links were still available. It was only in one case that the link available contained incompele song and so I uploaded a complete version of the song to enable me to discuss that.
