Today we have a 2-part song from the film Guzara-1954.

The film was made by Aina pictures-owned by S.M.Yusuf. The film was produced and directed by S.M.Yusuf himself. he also did a small role in this film- the only film role he ever did in his film career. There were 3 lyricists- Raja Mehdi Ali Khan (5 songs), Fauk Jami (2 songs) and Munir Lucknowi (1 song) for the film’s 8 songs. Music Director was Ghulam Mohammad.

I have not seen this film. However, from what I have learnt about the film from various sources is that , the film was based on the life of a middle class family who finds it difficult to run the family in the limited income that the family had. The story concluded that mental happiness with our own people is the greatest happiness compared to rich living ! A typical Nehruvian philosophy- very popular in those times. Even big filmmakers like Mehboob Khan were also sold on this ideology. These were the days of rationing and shortages, increasing corruption and black marketing. The common man was broken in pieces but was fed the socialistic wine to keep him quiet !

The cast of the film was Karan Dewan, Paro, Jabeen jalil, Chand Burke, Baby Naaz, Romi, Tiwari, Balam and many others. This was the film in which actress Jabeen Jalil made her Debut.

In the early days of cinema, people joined the film industry for various reasons like…
1) joining filmline did not need any special skill
2) language, religion, education was not a consideration
3) need to earn
4) readiness to do any work

As the Talkie film era started, the requirements changed. For acting, one needed the ability to speak Hindi/Urdu fluently. A reasonably good looking personality and knowledge of singing were additional qualifications. For other technical departments, readiness to do hard work and a will to learn were required. During this phase many girls from singing families (read Tawaifs) were preferred and for them entry into films was easier compared to others. Many girls joined the filmline to get a good husband and settle as a housewife with dignity. Thus many Gujarati Sethiyas married actresses.

There was a very small but distinct category of artistes, who joined films as a “time pass’ or a passion for a short period. These artistes had no intention to continue in the film line.Their interests were varied and different from only doing work in films. included in this category were Classical singers like Manik Varma, Hirabai badodekar, Ram Marathe, Phiroz Dastoor, actresses like Shakuntala Paranjpye, Vasanti, Renuka Devi etc, writers like Dewan Sharar, Lyricists like Moti,B.A., MD like Mukund Rai Trivedi, actors like Kaycee Mehra, Shashi Kapoor Sr. etc, classical instrument players like Ravi Shankar, Pannalal Ghosh, Alla Rakha, Ali Akbar khan etc.

Nevertheless 99% of people joined because they needed to earn money. In the cast of today’s film Guzara-54, you see a name Jabeen Jalil. She is one such artiste who needed to earn money. Jabeen Jalil was a short petite but attractive actress.She was born on 1st April 1936 in Delhi, but was educated in Japan and Bombay, as her father was in foreign services of India.

She used to take part in college dramas and in one such drama the judges were Nigar Sultana and her director husband S.M.Yusuf. They offered her a film as a Heroine. Jabeen’s father had expired and only mother and younger brother were there. She accepted the offer. Her first film was Guzara in 1954. Her second film in 55 was Lutera. Her first hero was Karan Dewan and second was Nasir khan.
She became famous in New Delhi-56, in the role of Kishore’s sister Nikki’s role. She acted in 29 films, out of which 6 were unreleased. She also acted in 4 Punjabi films. She got a National award in 1962 for a Punjabi film in which her Hero was Prem Chopra.
She married Ashok Kak, a kashmiri Brahmin in 1968 and she did her last movie in 1974 Vachan. In 1989 they went to the US for 10 years and came back to Mumbai.Her son Divvij Kak is also an actor and Jabeen became a producer with Jabeen International.
She lives in Dadar, Mumbai nowadays.

Jabeen was a very short, thin and small frame girl. Some other actresses like her were Nimmi, Chand Usmani,and Smriti Biswas who all always looked like young girls.

The Hero of the film was Karan Dewan.

In Hindi films, there have been three actors who were very handsome and very lucky but zero in acting – Karan Dewan, Pradeep Kumar and Bharat Bhushan. They all appeared in leading roles opposite all leading actresses of their times. They had the best films, best songs and best roles. Karan Dewan had about 25 Silver Jubilees to his credit and was considered a lucky star. Bharat Bhushan had the most musical films to his credit like ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952), ‘Shabaab’ (1954) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954) etc. Pradeep Kumar had ‘Anarkali’ (1953) and ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963).

All three had their brothers producing films for them. Gemini Dewan made films for Karan Dewan, R Chandra made films for Bharat Bhushan and Kalidas for Pradeep Kumar. Unfortunately, in later years, all three lost everything and died in poverty and neglectful anonymity. Karan Dewan was a manager with BR Chopra’s production company. When he died no one came for his funeral except for Chandrashekhar and Manmohan Krishan from the Cine Artists Association. Bharat Bhushan worked as a watchman in a film studio, in his last days. Even he died unsung and only the men from the Association were present at the cremation.

Pradeep Kumar’s case is the saddest. He lay seriously ill in the ICU of a Calcutta nursing home, abandoned by his relatives. The hospital was not discharging unless the bills were paid. Luckily one Mr. Pradeep Kondaliya, an estate agent, recognised him, despite his grown beard. He paid the huge outstanding bill of the hospital and took Pradeep Kumar to his home, where he passed away after a few days. He was cremated by his fan. Such is the film industry – cruel and ruthless, where the recognition lasts only till one is successful.

Dewan Karan Chopra aka Karan Dewan ( 6-11-1917 to 2-8-1979 ) youngest of three brothers, was born at Gujranwala, Punjab (now in Pakistan), British India. He studied in Lahore, where he became interested in Journalism and started editing a film magazine in Urdu, Jagat Lakshmi. One of the local distributors he met was Tarachand Barjatya, who was then the Manager of Chandanmal Inder Kumar’s distribution office at Lahore. Through his connection with Barjatya he landed in Calcutta, and in 1939, made his acting debut as Puran in the Punjabi feature film Puran Bhagat

Dewan started his film career with the role of Puran in Puran Bhagat in Punjabi in 1939 in Calcutta. It was produced by Raisaheb Sukhlal Karnani and directed by Roop K. Shorey’s father R. L. Shorey. His second film Mera Maahi (1941) was also a Punjabi film, directed by Shankar Mehta at Lahore and starring Ragini and Manorama. This was the movie in which he sang songs for the first time in the movies under the baton of legendary music director Shyam Sunder. Later, in Rattan, he sang for the first time in Hindi movies for Naushad. B R Chopra, then working as a film journalist in Lahore, helped Karan Dewan to get in touch with Devika Rani, who invited Dewan to come to Bombay. When this did not help Dewan get films, he taught “Urdu pronunciation to actors and actresses”.

In 1944, Karan Dewan acted in Rattan, a musical romantic drama, directed by M. Sadiq, which became one of the most popular films of that year. “A tremendous hit”, it paired Dewan with Swarnalata. His decisive film was Rattan (1944), which was produced by his brother Jaimini Diwan, and this movie turned out to be the biggest hit of 1944. He also sang songs in this movie under music director Naushad, and his song “Jab Tum Hi Chale Pardes” became popular. He sang in films such as Piya Ghar Aaja (1947), Mitti Ke Khiloune (1948) and Lahore (1949). His other important films were Zeenat (1945), Lahore (1949), Dahej (1950), Bahar (1951) and Teen Batti Char Rasta (1953). Known as a “jubilee star”, about twenty of his films are stated to have been jubilee (twenty-five weeks or more) hits.

Dewan married co-actress Manju in 1944 following the release of Rattan, in which she had a character role. By 1966, he was working as a casting agent for the film unit of Maya (1966). He continued to work in the 1960s and 1970s playing supporting parts in films such as Apna Ghar (1960), Shaheed(1965), Jeene Ki Raah (1969) and Nadaan (1971), with the last film in which he was credited, being Sohanlal Kanwar’s Atmaram (1979).

He worked in 73 films and sang 18 songs in 9 films. He worked with all leading actresses of his times,including Noorjehan and Nargis. At the end of his career, however, he was down financially and had to work as a Manager with B R Chopra’s company. When he died, except two workers of the Cine artistes association, no one else from the Film industry was present.

Today’s song is the 3rd song from the film Guzara-1954. In the part 2 song you will be surprised to hear the voice of Pt.Hridaynath Mangeshkar. It sounds just like a girl’s voice. I was confused but on inquiry, our Sadanand Kamath ji confirmed that the voice was that of Hridaynath only. Enjoy…

Here is the 13th and final song from LailaMajnu (1953). Out of the 14 songs listed at myswar.com and also with the posted songs list in the blog, 12 are posted. As mentioned in the penultimate post here , the extra song added in the list was ultimately used in the another Shammi Kapoor film ‘Chor Bazar (1954)’, with Sardar Malik’s music is posted here .

This is a prayer in a madrasa picturised on Master Jagdeep.

Madrasa or “Madrasah” is the oldest form of organized education institutions. One gathers all sort of general knowledge or information as one flits from interesting topics and not very interesting or boring issues. We keep growing, with the informal knowledge and gaining of wisdom, throughout our lives. And this is the way it should be, or the human intelligence would stagnate and die out. Nowadays, we are in danger of information overload, as there are too many sources, from which we can gather information on any topic or issue. I had a vague notion that “Madrasa” is one of the oldest form of organized system of imparting education, I read or heard somewhere. Then I looked up in Google to find out if my notion is correct. And I searched for “Maktab”, and as it happened, Google did confirm it to me in a very roundabout way, from maktab to kuttab to finally madrasah. I am beginning to dread finding answers on google, as the obvious answer it gives is misleading. One has to dig deeper in the results to come at a truthful conclusion.

I also found a pdf file of a research paper titled “Maktabs and Madrasas in India: A Look at Statistics based on 8th All India School Education Survey” at researchgate.net. The following para giving brief history is reproduced below:

“The first educational institution in the Muslim world was the mosque built at Medina early in the seventh century by the Prophet Muhammad and his Companions. From then on, mosques were used for teaching purposes, especially for the teaching of law and theology, but as society developed, study circles were held not only in the mosques but also in the palaces, in the streets and even in the market-places. The study circles also grew in number and quality during this period, forming the nuclei of what were to become the madrasas, colleges intended for adults who had already received their primary education in private schools or mosques. In the tenth century the madrasas emerged as an independent institution distinct from the mosque, although madrasas – at least in the early days – were set up either for a single jurist or to teach the tenets of a particular legal school. Thus was born a new kind of educational institution, destined in future to become a center of religious and secular learning in the Islamic world and a place where the representatives of the official class were educated in the spirit of Muslim orthodoxy.

The history of Madrasa education in India starts since the arrival of Muslims in India and it began in the 10th century with the establishment of Maktabs and Madrasas in the towns of Sind, Dabel, Mansura, Multan by the Arab traders and settlers (Haque, 2013).”

Considering, that education and knowledge is power, the imparting of power to the people, and starting young in observing, absorbing and gaining this power is a tradition in Islam, is a sobering thought. The very first “Wahee”(Divine revelation) that was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) began with the word “Iqraa”, meaning “read”, as in read, repeat, study and gain knowledge.

And to think that we all have arrived in this era of faster traffic of information, programming and coding and moving to artificial intelligence, through the foundation laid by the Prophet and his companions, of an education system, 1400 years ago. A lot has gone by and happened, and lessons have been learnt in these 1400 years.

May Allah Almighty give us and our future generations, the taufeeq, the discipline, talent and the spirit to gain, impart and constantly improve the education and knowledge, as these words in the prayer:

yaa rabb hamen ta’aleem ki
taufeeq ‘ataa kar
rakkhen tere farmaan ko
seene se lagaa kar

Wikipedia say this in one of the pages:

Literacy
In medieval times, the Caliphate experienced a growth in literacy, having the highest literacy rate of the Middle Ages, comparable to classical Athens’ literacy in antiquity.[7] The emergence of the Maktab and Madrasah institutions played a fundamental role in the relatively high literacy rates of the medieval Islamic world.[8]

I am yet to look up the antiquity age in classical Athens, to see if it is a concurrent period, later or earlier period, of what is given above as medieval times. 🙂

This is what it means dissemination of information available on the internet.

Let us move on to the song being posted and Jagdeep, who is in the middle of it all. We see a very young Jagdeep, singing this prayer with other students, as the ustad is looking on. Shamshad Begum is the singer of this prayer written by Shakeel Badayuni and composed by Ghulam Mohammed. Jagdeep was born 29th March, 1939, so he was 14 years old in 1953. He expired a few months ago on 20th July, 2020, another casualty possibly of these pandemic times. As per the filmography, he has worked in 391 films as an actor, starting as a child artist in 1950, up to 2017. This could be a record as a 67 year long career. Those who started before him in the industry have long since hung up their boots. Innumerable memorable characters played by him are part of the histology of hindi films and also the some sweet and some funny and some romantic songs filmed on Jagdeep are already posted in the blog. Some songs may be remaining to be posted, the current one being one of them.

Here is a memorable stanza of this famous background song pictured on Jagdeep in the film Bhaabhi(1957) :

khatam hue din us daali ke
jis par teraa baseraa thaa
aaj yahaan aur kal ho wahaan
ye jogi waalaa phera thaa
ye teri jaageer nahin thi
chaar ghadi ka dera tha
sadaa raha hai is duniyaa mein
kiskaa aab-o-daanaa
chal ud jaa re panchhi
ke ab ye des hua begaanaa

21/10/2020 – 89th Birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor
————————————————————————

I have in possession for almost a year now, a book titled “Rafinaama” by Isaak Mujawar. One day I just impulsively looked up the book availability on Amazon, and found that only two copies were available. I just ordered it without thinking anything. When the book arrived, then I realized that it was in Marathi. Even for self-proclaimed “kitaabi keeda” like me, sitting down reading it has proven a challenge. Which, I am yet to seriously take up.

Two days ago, I suddenly occurred to me, I am having these books and I should make use of the articles there for writing the various posts. The first book I encountered, for sheer visibility and the size of it, is “eh un dinon ki baat hai” – Urdu Memoirs of Cinema Legends (selected and translated by Yasir Abbasi). So for two days, I have been going through that book.

Since this Shammi Kapoor post is due to be written, I had finalized the song and lyrics are also ready. But the book does not contain anything about Shammi Kapoor and his career. I found “Rafinaama” next, in the drawer that I have kept for such treasures 🙂 never to be seen and touched by anyone.

And lo and behold, I have selected a Rafi song from the film Laila Majnu(1953) for posting on the 89th birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor and Rafinaama starts with the chapter titiled “Shammi, Rishicha majnucha aawaaj” meaning “majnu’s voice for Shammi and Rishi”.

I am giving a brief roundup of the chapter here :

“Films on Laila Majnu title have been made in hindi film industry in 1922, 1931(2 Movies), 1945, 1953 and 1976. The “Laila Majnu” of 1922 was silent movie and the rest were talkies. Two more movies on the same characters story was differently titled, first “Daastaan-e-Laila Majnu” in 1973 and “Love and God” in 1986. Rafi Sahab’s songs were there in all these movies since 1945. In the 1945 version Rafi sahab has sung two songs but none were actually on Majnu’s character.”

The above chapter in the book says that Rafi’s voice was Majnu’s voice in 1953 film, which is incorrect. Among the 4 songs which Rafi Sahab sang for this three are already posted in the blog. In “Bhar de jholi Allah naam” Rafi sahab’s has sung in 3-4 different voices for different characters, but when Shammi Kapoor comes in line and sings, it’s Talat Mehmood’s voice for him. In the song “Aankhon mein hai tu”, Shammi Kapoor in watching the qawwali being performed, he is not singing at all. Third posted is “Mil gayaa taqdeer se chashmaa yehaan”is a solo Rafi song played in the background during the titles.

The songs posted are listed below:

The fourth Rafi song from this film is the song of the current post. It is a very short and rapid solo which is played in the background as Laila and Majnu, Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, both die lying in the desert and the sand covers them gradually. This must be the end of the film. So the film is starting and ending with a Rafi song background song. Composer is Ghulam Mohammad and lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni.

This is 12th song to be posted from this film. One more song which is listed/included in the list of this films’ songs is actually not from this film, but this song posted here from another Shammi Kapoor film Chor Bazar (1954), with Sardar Malik’s music. So that means this movie has 13 songs and only one song remains to Yippee this movie. Remaining song is also a special one with Shamshad Begum giving playback to Master Jadeep. (I will try and get this post shortly).

There are a few more chapters dealing with Shammi Kapoori majnu type songs style which were sung by Rafi sahab, and subsequent Shammi Kapoor clones who tried to adopt the same style. The author is of the opinion that the Shammi style of songs which became famous as “yahoo” style did not originate with Junglee and Shankar-Jaikishan, rather the origin can be found in the songs of film “Tum sa nahin dekha” by O. P. Nayyar.

Shammi Kapoor started his film career with 6 films in 1953. He was the son of Prithvi Raj Kapoor and brother of Raj Kapoor, who was well on his way to be a stalwart film maker by then. But Shammi Kapoor must have set out to make his career on his own, there was no official launching by R. K. Films. His filmography lists 146 films from 1953 – 2011. Rockstar 2011 being the last film in which he acted. Up to Andaz 1971, I counted 56 movies of his which include many memorable musical extravaganzas with Rafi sahab’s playback under Shankar-Jaikishan, O.P. Nayyar and R. D. Burman. Early 50’s when he started as a hero, I can see, that the favoured voice for the hero was not Rafi. Rafi was the voice of everyone else in the some films but not the hero. But Naushad Sahab had used Rafi for all songs on Dilip Kumar in ‘Aan” & “Deedar” and for Bharat Bhushan in “Baiju Bawra”. Or it is possible some of them felt insecure, that Rafi’s singing could over shadow them in popularity. Truly, his phenomenal singing was capable was running away with the credits for all the success of film and its music. Naushad was too big before even “Baiju Bawra”, so could maybe whither the onslaught. Other big personalities who were not so big in early 50’s could have felt insecure. We should be glad that, this type of misapprehensions, if existing, were unable to keep Rafi sahab down for long. If a star shines too bright then its neighbors can be forgiven for being apprehensive.

By any account there must be around 180 songs which Rafi sahab sang for Shammi Kapoor, beginning with “Shama Parwaana” with this unforgettable song. This is a definite Rafi-Shammi song with the definite nuances of “Majnu”’and traces of “wehshat zada ishq”, as the curtain behind which Surraiya is listening to the song, is burnt. Such is the effect of Rafi sahab and Shammi Kapoor’s singing. In this film, seen on TV long ago, Rafi sahab has 5 songs including 3 duets with Suraiyya. There is no other male singer here, so all songs sung by Shammi Kapoor were by Rafi sahab.

Song-Milne ki hasrat mein betaabi ke saath (Laila Majnu)(1953) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

Milne ki hasrat mein
betaabi ke saathh
reh gaye phailaa ke haay
donon haathh
phool do din hans ke
jee behlaa gaye
aur ye gunche ae
bin khile murjhaa gaye
aaye thehre aur guzre
qaafile
phir na aise
chaahne waale mile ae
maut se kyun
ishq sharmindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part II: 1948-1949
——————————————————————————————
This series was started last Monday (28 September 2020), which was Lata Mangeshkar’s 91st birthday. The series has the ambitious aim of providing statistics of all HFM songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar-Year by year.

The first part of the series covered Lata Maneshkar HFM songs of 1947 and 1948. That was easy, seeing that the total number of HFM songs sung by her in these two years added upto just nine songs.

1948 saw a change in fortune for her. This time she got to sing a decent number of songs from a decent number of movies. From HFGK, and also by listening to songs of 1948 where no singers were mentioned in HFGK, I have been able to arrive at a figure of exactly 50 songs from 17 movies for Lata Mangehkar in 1948. Here are the details :-

Total 17 movies 14 MDs 50 50 37 6 4 3 19 lyricists

One can see that all songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar according to the above list have already been covered in the blog. I was hoping that I would be able to locate at least one Lata Mangeshkar song undiscussed in the blog for discussion with this writeup, hoping that some songs where singers are not known will turn out to be Lata Mangeshkar songs. We actually discovered some Lata Mangeshkar song this way. For instance, “Asha”(1948) has four Lata Mangeshkar solo songs according to HFGK. But I found out that another song, namely Sajna re tori kaun dagariya is also a Lata Mangeshkar solo song. I also discovered that song number 5 (no singer memtioned) and song numbe 2 (Lata Mangeshkar mentioned as the singer) are one and the same song. So in effect, it turns out that “Asha”(1948) has five Lata Mangeshkar songs, as against four as mentioned in HFGK.

When I checked in “Gandhaar”- which contains a list of all Lata Mangeshkar songs over the years, I find that it mentions a “Mandir”(1948) song as Lata Mangeshkar song. “Mandir”(1948) had 12 songs and HFGK contains no details of singers for any of these songs. Lata Mangeshkar had acted in this movie. According to “Gandhaar”- the song “lo wah aayi nindariya chhup chhup gupchup dhheere” has been sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song does not appear to be available. This song, if sung by her was most likely picturised on her as well. Unfortunately, neither audio nor video of this song seems to be available on pulic domain as of now.

That forces me to discuss a Lata song of 1949 with this article. But I will have to discuss the Lata Mangeshkar songs of 1949 too in the process. And that is what follows below.

1949 was quite a breakthrough year for Lata Mangeshkar. This year she sang 157 songs from 38 movies. The blog has so far covered 133 of these songs. Here are the details :-

So we can see that a career that was stuttering for two years began to show promise in 1948 and it recorded a meteoric rise in 1949. 1949 saw the golden era of HFM getting launched which would last till 1980. Golden era of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer also began in 1949, as can be seen from her portfolio of songs in 1949.

Looking at the list of movies in 1949, Lata Mangeshkar sang songs in 38 movies. All Lata Mangeshkar songs of 27 of these movies have already been covered. So we have only 11 movies of 1949 left that give us opportunity to discuss Lata Mangeshkar HFM songs of 1949.

Alphabetically, “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) is the first eligible movie of 1949 which still has a Lata Mangeshkar song left to be discussed. This movie was directed by Wahid Qureshi for Aaina Pictures Bombay. This “social” movie had Nigar, Masood, Urmila, Lalita Pawar, Tiwari, Amar etc in it. There were nine songs in it. Six of these songs have been covered in the past.

“Dil Ki Basti”(1949) had two Lata Mangeshkar solo songs in it. One song, viz Aag lage jag saara dekhe has been discussed in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar song from “Dil Ki Basti”(1949) to appear in the blog. It is penned by Wahid Qureshi. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

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

ae ae ae
chala kaabu na kuchh bhi haaye apna
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

muqaddar hai tera dushman zamaana
nahin duniya mein ab apna thhikaana
haan aan aan aan
bani hai jaan par ae maut aa ja
bhala ho tera o bedard duniya
khushi maangi thhi aur gham de diya

It is felt that changes take place slowly, especially in a country like India. Nevertheless, one cannot imagine how much India has changed in the last half a century or so. Actions that were considered acts of bravery and machismo those days are today wrong, undesirable, unhealthy, unsafe and even illegal. For instance, tiger hunters were considered saviors of humanity in India and they were respected by every one. Books written by hunters were taught in schools and colleges. Likewise felling trees and clearing space was considered a work of development and progress which was an act of nation building.

Today, killing tigers and other wild animals is illegal in India. In fact, movies showing animals must carry a disclaimer that no animals were harmed while picturising them. As for trees, entire Rail industry ran on wooden sleepers made out of trees felled on mass scale. In fact, olden steam locomotives in many countries (including India) used wood (and not coal) as fuel. Today, felling a single tree is considered a bigger crime in India than killing human beings.

Smoking was considered a macho male act. Today smoking itself is considered an unhealthy act that destoys one’s lungs and lead to cancer. Heroes are no longer shows smoking in movies unlike in the past and there too the statutory warning is required to be carried out.

In olden days, studying was good and playing was bad.

“padhoge likhoge banoge nawaab
kheloge koodoge hoge kharaab”

It was a very popular saying in India for many decades. Today of course no one believes in it. Sports have become professional and top sportsmen (often school dropouts) in lucrative sports earn such high incomes that majority of studious people can only dream about.

Likewise, government policies that were considered great those days have ended up becoming discredited. India followed socialism for the first four decades after its independence. By late 1990, this policy led to the counttry becoming virtually bankrupt and that policy has been discarded by now.

“Maalik” (1958) was directed by S M Yousuf for Sunny Art Production. The movie had Talat Mehmood, Suraiyya, Lalita Pawar, Roopmala, Jeevan, Mukri, Radhakrishen, Kumar , Jagdeep etc in it.The movie had eight songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past. The last song from the movie was covered in 2014.

The song under question was planned by me to be discussed in 2014 itself and I had decided to make it post number 9929, to be posted in june 2014. Somehow this song did not materialise then. Now, more than four years later, here is this song from “Maalik”(1958). It is fair to say that the messages contained in the song would be considered by and large irrelevant today. 🙂

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is sung by a school teacher to her pupils who enthusiastically sing along in approval. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

yahi din hain padhne ke padh lo kitaab
yahi din hai padhne ke padh lo kitab
padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge koodoge hoge kharab tum

kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
kabhi jhooth bolo na chori karo
agar mar bhi jaao na peena sharab nahin peena sharab

padhoge likhoge banoge nawab tum banoge nawaab
jo kheloge kudoge hoge kharab tum

The movie had eleven songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Paak Daaman”(1957) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi, Shamshad Begam and chorus. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that this song is a qawwali between the two genders which tends to be an entertaining musical nok-jhonk between the two genders.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Lyrics

parda uthaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke
parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke

jaao ji jaao
hosh mein aao
geet na gaao pyaar ke

jaao ji jaao
hosh mein aao
geet na gaao pyaar ke

parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke

ishq bhikhaari husn hai daata
maangne waale jaayen kahaan
ishq bhikhaari husn hai daata
maangne waale jaayen kahaan
ho maangne waale jaayen kahaan

aur kisi ke dar par maango
mil na sakegi bheekh yahaan

aur kisi ke dar par maango
mil na sakengi bheekh yahaan

raahe khuda ik jalwa dikha do
allah hi dega maula hi dega
raahe khuda ik jalwa dikha do
bhookhe hain deedaar ke
bhookhe hain deedaar ke
parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke

jaao ji jaao
hosh mein aao
geet na gaao pyaar ke

ho o o o o
door hato ji rasta naapo
yoon na hamen badnaam karo

yoon na hamen badnaam karo
yaa dil le lo
yaa dil de do
koi to aakhir kaam karo
koi to aakhir kaam karo
ham na sunenge koi fasaana
honge na poore khwaab tumhaare

honge na poore khwaab tumhaare
ham na sunenge koi fasaana
rah jaao dil maar ke
rah jaao dil maar ke

jaao ji jaao
hosh mein aao
geet na gaao pyaar ke

parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupao haar ke

oyi qurbaana

dil mein kisi ke dard basa ke
aankh churaana thheek nahin
ho aankh churaana thheek nahin
rahne do is raag ko dil mein
sabko sunaana thheek nahin
sabko sunaana thheek nahin

jo bhi kahoge maan hi lenge
jaane wafa o jaane tamanna
jo bhi kahoge maan hi lenge
bande hain sarkaar ke
bande hain sarkaar ke

parda uthhaao
saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke
parda uthhaao saamne aao
munh na chhupaao haar ke
