Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 3
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Okay, okay, just before you sit up and ask again – “ये क्या हो रहा है”, a quick reminder that we are into this series of repeat songs. This is the third episode today.

There are well known, as well as obscure, instances existing in which the reused songs appear in the list of the songs of the latter film. The reuse listing of the song can appear as it is – a few examples being,

  • “Gori Zulm Karey Zulf Ka Bikhar Jaana” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961) and the film ‘Pyaar Banaa Afsaana’, an unreleased film from 1960s.
  • The four songs of the film ‘Ram Rajya’ of 1943 are reused in the film ‘Ramayan’ of 1954
    “Beena Madhur-Madhur Kachhu Bol…”
    “Ajab Vidhi Ka lekh Kisi Se Padha Nahi Jaaye…”
    “Jhoole Mein Jhool Laal, Jhool Tu Jhool…”
    “Tyagmayi Tu Gayi, Teri Amar Bhaawna…”
    Note: The music director for both films is same – Shankar Rao Vyas; and the lyricist of these four songs is also the same – Ramesh Gupta.
  • “Beeti Jaat Barkha Ritu Saajan Nahin Aaye” – this song appears in the listings for the film ‘Muraad’ (1939) and the film ‘Dharam Bandhan’ (1940).
  • Four songs of an unreleased film ‘Parda’ from late 1940s are reused in the film ‘Achhaa ji’ of 1950
    ‘Taqraar Ko Badal Do Pyaar Mein, Na Karo Chhed Bekaar Mein…’
    ‘Bhool Hai Kisi Ko Apnana, Vichaaron Mein Basana…’
    ‘Kisi Ke Bholepan Ne… Mere Mann Ko Kheencha…’
    ‘Bhar Jaaye Aasmaan To Aahon Ki Kya Khata…’
    Note: The lyricist (Indiwar) and music director (Shyam Babu Pathak) are the same. The film director (SH Thirani) is also the same.
  • Six songs of the 1957 film ‘Pawanputra Hanuman’ have been reused in the 1969 film ‘Hanuman Chalisa’.
  • Strange occurrence – two films of the same year, 1958 – ‘Rifle Girl’ and ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ share the song – “Bheegi Hawa Mausam Jawaan, Masti Mein Dooba Saara Jahaan…”.
  • Rare occurrence, the same song is used in three films. The song is “Bhiksha De De Maiya Pingla, Jogi Khada Hai Dwaar…”. The films are ‘Bharthari’ (1944), ‘Raajyogi Bharthari’ (1954), and ‘Gopichand Bharthari’ (1965). Lyricist identified for these songs is Pandit Indra.
  • The song “Bolo Jaywantrao Ek Naam Prem Bhara. . .” appears in ‘Mera Imaan’ (1934) and ‘Swadesh Dewa’ (1946).
  • Interesting re-use – the song “Phool Chun Le Mere Baalam Ki Jaane Kab Daal Jhuke” appears in ‘Naubahaar’ of 1952 and then again in ‘Firdaus’ of 1953. Artist combination is the same – Sahir, Roshan, Lata.
  • Another one – “Baat Chalat Nai Chunari Rang Daali” – appears in film ‘Ladki’ of 1953 and then again in ‘Rani Roopmati’ of 1959.

Then there are films with the same list of songs.

  • ‘Satyanarayan’ of 1948 and ‘Bhikhaari’ of 1949
  • ‘Sushila’ of 1966 and ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ of 1977
  • ‘Amar Kahaani’ of 1949 and ‘Kanchan’ of 1955
  • ‘Sipaahi’ of 1941 and ‘Jangi Jawaani’ of 1943
  • ‘Suhaana Geet’ of 1941 and ‘Toote Dil’ of 1947
  • ‘Ram Bhakti’ of 1958 and ‘Bhakt Raaj’ of 1950
  • ‘Paanch Dushman’ of 1973 and ‘Daulat Ke Dushman’ of 1987

Although not specifically confirmed, in most cases, the above list of film pairs with all songs the same, the situation is that the latter film is a somewhat modified, re-certified and re-released version of the earlier film.

The above sampling is in no way exhaustive. More such instances may be discovered by a more meticulous review of the song lists in Geet Kosh.

But then, this observation has also to be annotated by saying that there are exceptions. There are many known cases where the repeat songs do not appear in the official list of songs of the film. The song may have been used as is without any modifications. The song may be used as an abridged version i.e. the stanzas used in repeat form are less than the original version. Or even when the song may be used quite differently.

These repeat instances of songs do not appear in the list of songs of the latter film. This is confirmed by a quick review of the Geet Kosh listings, which are primarily based on the information from the film booklets, and/or information printed on the gramophone records – 78 rpm records or LPs/EPs. Casual reuse, we may call it. Of course, ownership / copyright / permissions etc. are things that have to be taken care of. But it is always fun to be watching a film (especially when watching for the first time), and one is suddenly confronted with an unexpected song. The song already has a life and existence of its own. And it has its own popularity and following. All of a sudden out of the blue, the song will make a surprise appearance in another film, in another time. And one is simply – wow, एसा भी होता है – such things happen too.

The first song in this series – “Aa Ja Re Pardesi. . .” belongs to this category. As does this fun song that I bring to your notice today. An iconic song – a very typical and very strongly a Mehmood song, from the earlier film ‘Gumnaam’ from 1965, makes an unexpected and surprise appearance in the 1968 film ‘Brahmchaari’. This time around, the song is performed by the Junior incarnation of Mehmood, and he has done a superlative job of presenting this song. This song does not appear in the list of songs of the film ‘Brahmchaari’, and hence, when it appears in the film, the mind takes a double take – okay wow, this song, here.

The situation can be labeled as a ‘male-child item song’ 🙂 . It is just there, does not really add to the storyline content of the film. The children of Shammi Kapoor’s private orphanage are together, along with Mohan Choti, the handy man around the house, and Rajshri, who has descended on to this ‘family’ as a distraught outsider with no place to go. The song is heard on a gramophone player, on which the 78 rpm record is playing.

As I said earlier, Junior Mehmood has done a remarkable job performing this song, at that age. Born in 1956, he was all of 12 years old when he performed this song. A little short in height for his age, this performance is really lovable.

This video clip contains two stanzas, one less from the original three. However, my hunch is that all three were initially included when ‘Brahmchaari’ was released. In this video clip also, as the action moves from the first to the second stanza, there is slight jump in the visual, indicating there might have been a cut made – and the middle stanza was deleted later, for whatever reason.

Avinash ji has been posting a mini series on Junior Mehmood performances in Hindi films, so I will skip getting into more details about this fun child artist. Somehow the natural transformation, as these child artists move from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, does not seem to happen. The success of what their performance is, and the kudos it has drawn, continues to overshadow this required transformation as one grows in years. Very few examples are where an artist of proven merit in child roles has also made a successful career once having grown up. But that discussion is maybe another article, or another series.

Meanwhile, enjoy this really likeable performance, which I am sure will prompt you to go and take a look at the original ‘Gumnaam’ song also. I myself sure did.

Song – Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain  (Brahmchaari) (1968) Singers – Mohammed Rafi, Mehmood, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – Shankar Jaikishan
