‘Chunariya’ (1948) was produced under the banner of Kuldeep Pictures of Lahore-based Kuldeep Sehgal which was his first film in Mumbai after partition. The film was directed by Ravindra Dave. The story, dialogues, screen-play and lyrics were written by Mulk Raj Bhakri. The production controller was his brother, Lekh Raj Bhakri. The star cast included Manorama and Wasti in the lead role with Randhir, Pran, Sophia, Cuckoo, Narbada Shankar, Mehdi Raza, Chand Burque, Baij Sharma etc in subsidiary roles.

It is interesting to note as to how the box office success of ‘Chunariya’ (1948) helped the career revival of some of the displaced persons from the Lahore film industry. Most of them had shifted to Mumbai after partition in 1947 almost penniless. Although the film was produced by Kuldeep Sehgal, according to character actor Janaki Das, it was Mulk Raj Bhakri along with his brother, Lekh Raj Bhakri who organized the actors and the crew, mostly among the displaced from Lahore film industry. Later, both Bhakri brothers floated their own film production companies and became producers/director.

The film’s director, Ravindra Dave was also a displaced person from Lahore film industry who came to Mumbai along with his brother Ramnarayan Dave and their maternal uncle, Dalsukh Pancholi. ‘Chunariya’ (1948) was his first directorial film in Mumbai. Ravindra Dave also floated his own film production company and became the producer-director of Hindi and Gujarati films. The acting career of Manorama and Pran, both from Lahore, took off in Mumbai from the success of ‘Chunariya’ (1948).

Music Director, Hansraj Bahl who started his career as the music director in Mumbai with ‘Pujaari’ (1946), was on the downhill after the continuous failures of about half-a-dozen films. He bounced back with good compositions of the songs for ‘Chunariya’ (1948) some of which became popular. Although, Geeta Dutt was the main female playback singer for the film, it was Lata Mangeshkar’ song, dil-e-naashaad ko jeene ki hasrat ho gayi tumse which became very popular. Similary, Mohammed Rafi’s song, sab kuchh lutaaya hamne aakar teri gali mein also became very popular.

‘Chunariya’ (1948) has the distinction of becoming a film in which Asha Bhosle sang her first song in Hindi film, ‘saawan aaya re saawan aaya jaage more bhaag’ along with Geeta Dutt and Zohrabai Ambalewaali in this film. However, according to Raju Bharatan who wrote Asha Bhosle’s musical biography, Asha Bhosle sang her first Hindi film song, ‘gareebon ke data gareebon ke waali’ in ‘Andhon Ki Duniya (1947) along with Zohrabai Ambalewaali. Unfortunately, as of now, both the songs are not available on any of the video sharing platforms. There may be some story as to why many on-line articles on Asha Bhosle consider the song in ‘Chunariya’ (1948) being her first Hindi film song rather than her song from ‘Andhon Ki Duniya’ (1947).

‘Chunariya’ (1948) had 10 songs – all written by Mulk Raj Bhakri of which 8 songs have already been covered on the Blog. The remaining two songs were not available on video sharing platforms for quite some time. Very recently, I am able to get mp3 clip of one of the two ‘missing’ songs which I have uploaded on a video sharing platform.

I am presenting the 9th song, ‘daaman se bandh gayi choli re, meri sakhi paraayi ho li re’ which is rendered by Geeta Dutt and chorus. From the wordings of the lyrics, it is apparent that it is a ‘Bidaai Song’ sung by bride’s friends.

“Chunariya” (1948) was produced by Kuldeep Sahgal and directed by Ravindra Dave for Kuldeep Pictures Ltd, Bombay. The movie had Wasti, Manorama, Pran, Randhir, Cuckoo, Narbada Shanker etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Chunariya” (1948) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Geeta Dutt. Mulkraj Bhakri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hansraj Bahl.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This song is the 2900th song from the decade of 1940s to appear in the blog. An “artificial” yet significant century in the blog. 🙂


Singer-Tere milne ko jee dhadke (Chunariya)(1948) Singer-Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Mulkraj Bhakri, MD-Hansraj Bahl

Lyrics

tere milne ko ji dhadke
haaye
tere milne ko ji dhadke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil karke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil karke
tere milne ko ji dhadke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil karke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil karke

din tadap tadap kar beete
main mar gayi jeete jeete
din tadap tadap kar beete
main mar gayi jeete jeete
haaye main mar gayi jeete jeete
kabhi chale aao mere paas
sajan milne ka bahaana karke
sajan milne ka bahaana karke

sab jhooth thhe tere waade
ik baar tu aake kah de
sab jhooth thhe tere wade
ik baar tu aake kah de
haaye ik baar tu aake kahde
kyun haath pakad ke chhod diya
mera dil deewaana karke
haaye mera dil deewaana kar ke

sun o saajan bedardi
kyun jaan dukhon se bhar di
sun o saajan bedardi
kyun jaan dukho se bhar di
haaye kyun jaan dukhon se bhar di
tune to basa li duniya
mera andher zamaana kar ke
mera andher zamana kar ke
tere milne ko jee dhadke
haaye tere milne ko ji dhadke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil kar ke
kahaan gaye patthar ka dil kar ke

In my previous article on the song “Kat Gayi Waadon Mein“, I have talked about Mulkhraj Bhakri, writer, producer and lyricist from the Lahore film industry, who became one of the many victims of the country’s partition in 1947 . In Bombay (Mumbai), due to his hard work, he regained his position in the Hindi film industry. 

In this article, I propose to talk about one more victim of partition who was born with a silver spoon in a Gujarati family settled in Karachi and actively connected with the Lahore film industry in the 1940s. I am not talking about Dalsukh M Pancholi but director, Ravindra Dave who happened to be his nephew. Let me unfold Ravindra Dave’s story.

This is one more duet by Mohammed Rafi and Geeta Dutt from the film ‘Chunariya’ (1948). Music Director is Hansraj Behl and lyricist is Mulkraj Bhakri. Four songs of this film are already posted in the blog and none of them are having video links. The songs of this film are specially poignant with these two solos by Lata and Rafi, viz. Dil e nashaad ko jeene ki hasrat ho gayee tumse and Sab kuchh lutaayaa hamne aakar teri gali mein. The song I am discussing also just has an audio link. But from the tone of the song I can guess that it is a ‘ beggar’s song ‘. The words are not really begging but the composition is such that it can not fit any other situation.

“Chunariya” (1948) is by now an obscure movie. What I know about this movie is that this movie had Wasti, Manorama, Pran etc in it.

I have discussed two songs from this movie in the past. Here is another song from the movie. This is a light hearted song where the lady is calling her beloved who for some reasons has become annoyed with her. And her beloved is no ordinary person. He has got a Motor ! And the Motor (Car was called Motor in Hindi movies those days) could well be a beloved possession of the man, so the lady gives “duaa” in the song that may his motor remain intact.
