Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 5
———————————–————––—
The fifth post in this series is taking care of 4 artists, who are majorly important and fruitful associations of first decade of Rafi Sahab’s career. First and foremost is the composer duo of Husnlal-Bhagatram who composed many melodious scores in late 40’s and early fifties. I counted 100 plus songs in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab’s songs, which are composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram. 45 of these are written by Qamar Jalalabadi. I found these 6 songs of this team’s duets sung by Mohammad Rafi and Shamshad Begum.

Song Movie (Year) Singer(s) MD Lyricist
Ladka Aur Ladki Mile Pyar Ka Gaana Chhoti Bhabhi(1950) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi
Mere Dil Ko Jalaaya Na Karo Gauna(1950) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi
Chod Diya Ghar Baar Rani Tere Liye Meena Bazaar(1950) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi
Gori Bahon Mein Chudiyan Kaali Saja Lo Meena Bazaar(1950) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi
Le Lo Ji Maharaja Dupatta Mera Saat Rang Ka Meena Bazaar(1950) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi
Tera Mera Ho Gaya Prem Main Hun Saheb Tu Hai Mem Farmaaish(1953) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Husnlal Bhagatram Qamar Jalalabadi

As for pure duets of Rafi-Shamshad are concerned, I counted 150 in the list, out of which 94 are posted in the blog. There are many Punjabi films songs also in the 150 duets of Rafi-Shamshad. Apart from these there are many group songs of three or more singers, with these two stalwarts, who started the journey of duets right in 1946 and continued till late 60’s. There is no way I am not listing my favourite Rafi-Shamshad duets here.

Song Movie (Year) Singer(s) MD Lyricist
Solah Baras Ki Bhai Umariya Aag(1948) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Ram Ganguly Bahzad Lakhnavi
Mohabbat Mein Kise Maloom Tha Ye Din Bhi Aayega Paaras(1949) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Ghulam Mohammad Shakeel Badayuni
Bolo Ji Dil Loge-2 To Kya Kya Doge Patanga(1949) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum C Ramachandra Rajendra Krishna
Leke Pehla Pehla Pyar Bharke Aankhon Men Khumaar C I D(1956) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum O P Nayyar Majrooh Sultanpuri
Khat Khut Karti Chham Chhum Karti Gaadi Hamaari Mother India(1957) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Naushad Ali Shakeel Badayuni
Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Sama Bata De Tujhe Jaana Sawan(1959) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Hans Raj Bahal Prem Dhawan

I found this song in the list credited to Pakeezah, but it is not available:

Song Movie (Year) Singer(s) MD Lyricist
Jayen To Kahan Jaaye Ab Tera Ye Deewana Hatkar (Unreleased) Pakeezah(1971) Mohd Rafi, Shamshad Begum Ghulam Mohammad Kaif Irfani

Guess what, there are exactly 151 songs in the list of Rafi sahab’s song where the lyricist is Qamar Jalalabadi. There seems to be perfect symmetry, here as I counted 151 for Rafi-Shamshad and 101 for rafi-Husnlal Bhagatram.

Here is the total tally of these artists in the blog so far:

Artist Songs posted in the blog Total songs
Husnlal-Bhagatram 296 451
Qamar Jalalabadi 393 721
Shamshad Begam 713 1273

** Shamshad Begam’s posted songs are not yet updated, after the recent 4-5 posts of her songs.

Coming to the song under discussion, it is from the film’Gauna’ 1950. A very sweet chhed-chhad genre song, very early 50ish. I had not head this song too like many of Husnlal-bhagatram’s songs, until a few days ago. I had to post a Rafi-Shamshad duet, and it is was a melodious one composed by HB, it was a double ‘sone pe suhaaga’.

Following songs of Gauna (1950) have been covered in the blog:-

Song Date of posting
Ban ban ke mit gayin hain taqdeer ki lakeeren 26 February 2012
Aaj kisi se ho gayin aankhen chaar chaar chaar 22 October 2016

The song reminded me of this famous song.

While seeing to the Rafi-Shamshad duets in the excel sheet, I could see a few, that I have written the post myself, but I have listed only the songs that are readily recognisable and are part of my old film songs listening memory. With only 94 songs posted so far in the blog, there are at least 40 such sweet/meloncholy/mischievious/romantic duets that remain to be posted. Enough for another series, if any one is of the mind. Arunkumar Deshmukh Sir, is fond of the older duets of these two singers as has posted a lion’s share of the last few such duets.

Lastly, I cannot stop listening to the duets of these two, whenever I reach one. Even unknown songs are like fresh fruit juice. The khanak in Shamshad Begum’s singing, and the soft smooth tones of Rafi Sahab, make for a delightful duet, always.

Mere dil ko jalaaya na karo – Gauna (1950)

Song-Mere dil ko jalaaya na karo (Gauna)(1950) Singers-Shamshad Begum, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Husnlal-Bhagatram

Lyrics

Mere dil ko jalaaya na karo o o
mere dil ko jalaaya na karo
mere sang bolte nahin een
na bolo
mere sang bolte nahin een
na bolo
meri gali mein bhi ee
meri gali mein bhi aaya na karo o
mere dil ko jalaaya na karo

haha
badi aayi gali wali
dekh liya ra’ub teraa
kar chuki sawaal gori
sun lo jawaab meraa
gali tere baap ki nahin een
baap ki nahin
ho mujhe ankhiyaan dikhaaya na karo o
o o
mujhe ankhiyaan dikhaaya na karo

mere dil ko jalaaya na karo o
mere dil ko jalaaya na karo

achha meri baat suno
tab tumhen jaanen
ek baat tum maano
ek ham maanen
gali mein to aao baabuji ee
aao baabuji
mere sapnon mein aaya na karo o o
mere sapnon mein aaya na karo
mere dil ko jalaaya na karo

waah waah khoob soojhi
main na qaaboo aaungaa
gali mein bhi aaungaa aa
sapnon mein bhi aaungaa
jise nahin saathh rakhnaa aa
saathh rakhnaa
usse apnaa banaaya na karo o
usse apnaa banaaya na karo

mere dil ko jalaaya na karo o o
mere dil ko jalaaya na karo

Blog Day :

4701 Post No. : 16402

Remembering Nargis today on the 91st anniversary of her birth.

Born in the year 1929, she made her debut in films as a child artist as early as 1935. And then starting with 1942, she moved on from child roles to adult roles. As I was searching for a song from her early years in films, I chanced to see this song, which is really very playful and chirpy. And listening to the song made me wonder why has this song so far been away from this blog.

Nargis is all of 21 years of age, as she is singing and trying to hold back Karan Dewan (her husband in the film) from going to office. The words of the song are simple and endearing and the whole ambiance of the scene is very charming. There is a childlike entreaty in the pleadings of the newlywed, as she recounts her hours of boredom when the husband is sway to office. And the husband too is in part a willing accomplice, only that near the end of the song, his elder brother (role played by Shyam Chadha) calls him to leave for office, and he has to perforce make a quick departure from the song and the beseeching wife.

The film is ‘Chhoti Bhabhi’ from 1950. It is produced under the banner of Filmkar Limited, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors in the film is listed as Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyama, Suraiya Chaudhary, Yakub, Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani Jugnu, G Sarang, and Khushdil. Yes, the Johar we see in this list is IS Johar, doing a small role here.

The film has nine songs, all of them are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music is from the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram. It is 1950 – and the voice of an equally young singer, Lata Mangeshkar, sounds so wonderful. The rendition by the singer and the performance on the screen, both are really superb. The outcome is a naughty playful song that is really endearing.

The film has a total of nine songs, of which seven songs are already showcased here. This is the eighth song to find its place on our blog today. With one more to go, this film is ready for the Yippeee category.

Blog Day :

4640 Post No. : 16300

The musical bandwagon may be moving slower now a days, but it is moving on nevertheless. Everyday sees at least one post in the blog. The last DOT day for the blog was on 25 december 2019 (4177th day for the blog). Since then, the blog has added at least one song every day for the last 563 days.

Today is 4640th day for the blog. On this day we achieve yet another landmark figure, viz post number 16300. In other words, we complete the 163rd century for the blog today. It works out to an average of 28.5 days for one century. So by the time our moon completes one rotation of the earth, the blog completes one century of songs. 🙂

Here I have likened the progress of the blog to moon. But in the past, I have likened the blog to a bandwagon. And on other occasions, I have likened it to a train as well. 🙂

Come to think of it, trains fascinate us nearly as much as Hindi movie songs fascinate us. Trains in fact fascinate Hindi movie makers also. And so we find trains playing important roles in many Hindi movies. Many songs in these movies take place on trains.

When I checked up, I realised that the blog has just over one hundred train songs already. We have 102 rail related songs in the blog so far.

If one thinks that all these rail related songs have been covered by me ( a Railwayman myself), you cannot be more wrong. Most regular contributors of the blog have contributed to this impressive catalog of rail songs in the blog. Just take a look at the chart here to see the contributions of rail related posts and lyrics by our regulars :-

What an impressive collection of Rail related songs by our regulars.

Some of these songs have doubled up as blog century posts as well. Here is the list of Rail songs that have been used as blog century posts :-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Date of posting
2000 Dhak dhak karti chali jeewan ki rail re Dilruba(1950) 27 september 2009
2700 Jeewan hai ik sapnaa madhur suhaanaa sapnaa Honeymoon (1973) 30 july 2010

15800 Hamaare dil ke station pe bhi baabu kabhi aanaa Fifty Fifty(1950) 12 August 2020

I have decided to use another Rail song as this blog century song. I had a good number of Rail songs to chose from. Avinash Scrapwala, one of the bigger Railway fans among the regulars, had sent me several rail related lyrics and he keeps reminding me about them periodically. I have chosen one of those lyrics for this post.

This song is from “Naach”(1949). “Naach” (1949) was directed by Ravindra Dave for Kuldip Pictures. The movie had Shyam, Suraiya, Kuldip, Raj Mehra, Gulab, Yashodhara Katju, Sofia, Shyama, Wasti, Om Prakash etc in it.

The movie had 11 songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

This rail song from “Naach”(1949) is sung by Geeta Dutt, Lata Mangeshkar and an unknown male voice.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement which has kept this musical labour of love to keep rolling on and on without any stoppages. Here is hoping that we will countinue to keep arriving at many more milestones during our musical journey.

Today 28th December’2020 is the fifty-second remembrance anniversary of music director Husnlal(born 1918 as per Wikipedia – death 28th December’1968) of the famous music duo of the golden age of Hindi Film Music – Husnlal Bhagatram.

On this occasion here is a song from the ‘1947’ movie ‘Romeo And Juliet’ where music was composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

“Romeo And Juliet-1947” was directed by Akhtar Hussaain for ‘Nargis Art Concern, Bombay’ (home production of actress Nargis). It had Nargis, Sapru, Anwar Hussain, Sunalini Devi, Nisar, John Cavas, Hameed Murad, Nazir Kashmiri, Violet, Pushpa, Abdul Rasheed, Amanullah and others.

This movie had eight songs as listed below; (songs already posted on the blog are accompanied by their links);

We can see from the above that three songs of this movie have been posted on the blog so far.

Today’s song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewali and lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music is composed by Husnlal-Bhagatram.

I came across this song five-six years back when I was looking for songs of Zohrabai Ambalewali. Today’s song is sung by her and it is a nice song to listen to and enjoy.

Let us now enjoy today’s song (a Husnlal-Bhagatram composition) and pay our tributes to music director Husnlal on his remembrance anniversary today.

28/12/2020 – Death anniversary of Pandit Husnlal (Husnlal-Bhagatram)

I have admitted in a post earlier that when I started my journey in the blog, that I could not recognize the name Husnlal-Bhagatram. I knew some of their songs well from radio days, but their MD’s name was conspicuously absent from the consciousness. Only explanation to this I can think of is that most of those known songs were Suraiyya songs and heard on AIR urdu service “aapki farmaish” programme. The reception of AIR’s (Urdu service) in Mumbai was so bad in 80’s that hardly anything said could have registered, unless one sits near the radio and concentrates on what is being said. Even then mostly it was difficult to comprehend, I can recall from memory. So, the name ‘Husnlal-Bhagatram’ was not known to me.

Husnlal was the younger brother of Bhagatram and also his junior in the field. As per Wikipedia, Pandit Husnlal was born in 1918 and died on 28/12/1968. Husnlal Bhagatram, alongwith their elder cousin Pandit Amarnath, are credited with training Shankar of Shankar-Jaikishan and Laxmikant of Laxmikant-Pyarelal, Khaiyyam and Mahendra Kapoor.

I had the link of this story telling song from the 1949 film ‘Jaltarang’ saved, for posting as Husnlal Bhagatram song, but their filmography in both imdb and Wikipedia is not listing this film, for some reason. I was just about to recheck from myswar.com to confirm that the music of this film is indeed by Husnlal Bhagatram, when I found this article on songsofyore.

On going through this useful article listing many of Husnlal Bhagatram’s better-known songs, I got the confirmation about “Jaltarang’ 1949. Also, from the comments and discussion it has transpired that the baton for melodious music shifted to Shankar Jaikishan from Husnlal Bhagatram, during the crossover of 40’s to 50’s decade. I am not surprised, as the interesting connection between these famous songs by these two composer duos is also evident:
Jiya bekaraar hai by Shankar Jaikishan
Tere nainon ne chori kiya mera chhota sa jiya by Husnlal Bhagatram.

The article has also remined me of this melodious Rafi-Lata duet.

Since making that comment about this being among the top 50 Rafi-Lata duets, in 2011, I have revisited the song a number of times and never tire of listening to it.

These five songs from Jaltarang 1949 are already posted in the blog:

Song Date posted
Lut gayi ummeedon ki duniyaa 1 March 2011
Nainon ke mast ishaare 24 June 2011
Haay taqdeer meri haay taqdeer meri 30 June 2011
Zara tumne dekha to pyaar aa gayaa 12 August 2011
Musaafir sada geet gaaye chalaa chal 1 September 2019

The remaining 4 songs are all Rafi solos, so we are in for a treat if all of them are available. If I am not mistaken, Husnlal Bhagatram can also be credited with starting the trend of having all male songs in the film by Rafi. Certainly, that was not the norm in 1949, but in this film ‘Jaltarang’ Rafi sahib is the only male singer. Certainly, in ‘Aansoo’1953 no other male singer is credited, while for the one song remaining to be posted, singers name is unavailable. “Shama Parwana” 1954 is having only Rafi sahib as male playback singer. Naushad Sahab did this only in Aan 1952 for the first time. This issue calls for some deep research.

The song I am presenting as a tribute for Pandit Husnlal, is a Rafi solo, written by by Kaif Irfani and composed by the ever-melodious Husnlal-Bhagatram. As per excel sheet this song is picturized on ‘Rehman’.

Rafi sahab has just completed 3100 songs in the blog. Kaif Irfani’s tally is at 75 (total written is not known). Husnlal Bhagatram is at 291 out of 451 total songs composed in 50 movies. At a guess the songs by Rafi, Lata and Suraiyya should cross the 100 figures under Husnlal Bhagatram. This gives a fair idea of the important part played by Husnlal Bhaagatram in the careers of these giants.


Song-Tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani hai ye badi suhaani (Jal Tarang)(1949) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Lyrics

tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani
mast adaayen nain katari
mast adaayen nain kataari
nikhri hui jawaani
aisa uska roop suhaana
duniya hui deewaani
ho o duniya hui deewaani

is nagri mein us shahzaadi ne kiya jab thhikaana
ik shahzaada dekh ke usko
ik shahzaada dekh ke usko
bahut hua deewaana
us par kiya nichhaavar usne
apna maal khazaana
dekho kismat baat ko kaise
karti hai afsaana
ho o karti hai afsaana
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunaayen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani

phir shahzaade ne uske
kadmon pe sheesh jhukaaya
usne apna pyaara jeewan
usne apna pyaara jeewan
usko bhent chhadaaya
shama ko dekh ke tab parwaana
jalne se ghabraaya
kya jaane ye pagli duniya
usey maza kya aaya
ho o usey maza kya aaya
tumhen sunnayen ek kahaani
tumhen sunanyen ek kahaani
hai ye badi suhaani
prem nagar mein aake utri
roop nagar ki raani
ho o roop nagar ki raani

Yearwise discussion of Lata Mangeshkar songs in HFM: Part VII: Year 1953
———————————————————————————————————

Lata Mangeshkar, who had made her playback debut in 1940s (in Marathi movies) had to struggle for quite a few years to find a foothold in Hindi movies playback singing. By 1947, she had a grand total of 9 songs to show as a playback singer in HFM. Still, by the time the decade of 1940s ended, Lata Mangeshkar had a meteoric rise to the very top.

It is said that climbing to the top is easier, but remaining at the top is more difficult. We see that Lata Mangeshkar, after rising to the top in 1949, and statistically touching her highest peak in 1951 (223 songs) stayed close to her peak in subsequent years, without climbing down too low. The tally of 194 songs for movies of 1953 is only 29 songs lesser than her all time record of 223 songs for movies released in a calender year. So, one sees that Lata Mangeshkar was not a meteor, but a star.

Here are the details of songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in Hindi movies released in 1953 :-

Total 45 movies 22 MDs 169 195 149 35 5 6 27 Lyricists

* Note:- The one solo song of “Firdaus”(1953), viz Phool chun le mere baalam was also there in “Naubahaar”(1952).

We see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 194 songs in 44 movies- excluding “Firdaus” song, which was actually a song of “Naubahaar”(1952).

Lata Mangeshkar added some new musical collaborators during this year. Music directors Dhaniram, R Sudarshanam-Dhaniram, R C Boral, Salil Chaudhary, Pt Shivramkrishna and Vasant-Prabhu composed songs for Lata Mangeshkar for the first time in this year 1953. Madhup Sharma, Madhukar Rajasthani, Manmohan Sabir and Saba Afghani penned songs for Lata Mangeshkar for the first time in this year.

Shankar Jaikishan and C Ramchandra were the major music directors for her this year. Shankar Jaikishan composed 44 songs in her voice in 7 movies. C Ramchandra composed 40 songs in her voice in 6 movies. So these two music directors composed 50% of the songs that Lata Mangeshkar sang in movies of 1953 !

Rajinder Krishan penned 47 songs in 8 movies whereas Shailendra penned 32 songs for her in 10 movies. So these two lyricists penned almost 45 % of all songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar this year. It shows that Lata Mangeshkar was being backed by the top music directors and top lyricists of the time.

Out of 44 movies of 1953 where Lata Mangeshkar lent her vice, all her songs in majority of these movies are already covered. Some Lata Mangeshkar songs are yet to be covered in 13 movies.

By the end of 1953, Lata Mangeshkar had sung 953 songs in HFM. As many as 490 of these songs (53%) were under the batons of five music directors , namely C Ramchandra (158 songs), Husnlal Bhagatram (98 songs), Shankar Jaikishan (98 songs),Anil Biswas (88 songs) and Roshan (48 songs). As for lyricists 383 out of 953 songs (40%) were penned by just five lyricists, namely Rajinder Krishan (136 songs), Shailendra (74 songs), Hasrat Jaipuri (62 songs), Shakeel Badayuni (58) and P L Santoshi (53 songs). By 1953, Lata Mangeshkar had worked with 59 Music directors and 94 lyricists.

“Aansoo”(1953) is alphabetically the first movie of 1953 that still has some leftover Lata songs not yet discussed in the blog. “Aansoo”(1953) was directed by Shanti Kumar for Famous Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Kamini Kaushal, Shekhar, Pran, Nawab, Amirbai Karnataki, Indu Pal, Chaman Puri, Rajkumari, Kabil Amritsari, Parvati Devi, C Nazeer, Indira Bansal, Mumtaz mati, Roopmati, Suhel Chaudhary, Satyarani, Aruna Mehta, Shrimati Homi Master, Ghulam Hussain, Madan Singh, Madan Mohan, Sudesh Kumar, Baby Kumkum, Baby Kavita, Baby Suman, Binu Brar etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. There were five Lata Mangeshkar songs in it. Three were solos and two were duets (with Rafi). Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final Lata song from “Aansoo”(1953). This song is a solo song. Qamar Jalalabadi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Husnlal Bhagatram.

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Kamini Kaushal was the leading lady, one can guess that the song was lipsynced by her on screen. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

After this song, only one song is left from “”Aansoo”(1953). Details of this song “Chha rahi kaali ghata jiyara mora lahraaye hai” is not gven in HFGK, HFGK makes a guess that this song was probably sung by Shamshad Begam. These is a famous song with this mukhda by Begam Akhtar. I wonder if this sing was sung by Begam Akhtar. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.


Song-Judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedaar se pahle (Aansoo)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

tukde uthha ke dil ke
ham door jaa rahe hain
tumse kiye thhe waade ae
wo yaad aa rahe ae ae hain aen aen

judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
to marne ki duaa karte tumhaare pyaar se pahle
judaai ki

agar ye jaante
tumse juda ik roz hona hai
agar maaloom hota pyaar ka anjaam rona hai
hazaaron baar ham tum sochte ikraar se pahle
hazaaron baar ham tum sochte ikraar se pahle
judaai ki

arre duniya ke maalik
kya aa mila
bekas ko thhukra ke ae
bekas ko o thhukra ke
khushi ki daur ghadiyaan tumse maangi haath phailaa ke
mere aansu to aakar dekhta inkaar se pahle
mere aansu to aakar dekhta inkaar se pahle
judaai ki khabar hoti agar deedar se pahle
judaai ki

Munawwar Sultana – 96th Birth Anniversary on 08/11/2020

The name Munawwar means, shining brightly or aglow. Combined with Sultana, it becomes “an empress who shone with a bright light”. Munawwar Sultana was born on 8th November, 1924 at Lahore, she had a compact but meaningful career from 1941 to 1956 of working in 28 films. After this she settled down to married life and devoted her-self to raising her family. She expired at the age of 82 on 15th September 2007.

I have not seen any of the films she acted in but some of the songs picturised on her are my personal favorites. The song Afsaana likh rahi hoon de=il e bekaraar ka is one of those songs which will be remembered till hindi film songs are remembered. From what I have read about her career, she was very much part of the A list actors and film makers of the era, and she quit while still in demand. She might even have cut down on films because she wanted to quit. She never made a comeback despite living in Mumbai all her life and in the thick of things at Pali Hill. The busiest and eventful time of her career is from 1947 to 1952.

Another important film of Munawwar Sultana is Babul 1950, which has her lip syncing this famous unforgettable duet Milte hi aankhen dil huaa deewaana kisi ka .

I was looking for a song picturised on her and found this film “Pyar Ki Manzil” 1950, with music by Husnlal Bhagartam. It is my experience that whenever I have stumbled upon their songs, I have not moved on to look for a better choice. So here is the melodious, female duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Shamshad Begum.

Here is the list of this films songs already posted in the blog;

Song Date of posting
Aankhon mein aankhen daal ke 16 May 2011
Bichhde huye saajan ki 20 June 2011
Ae chaand zaraa sun le 28 September 2011
Padosan ke ladke ne dil mera chheena 2 February 2015
Bheega hua daaman hai to aankhon mein hai paani 17 December 2017

Though the film “Pyar Ki Manzil” is available on youtube, only audio of songs are there. In the absence of video, I have no way of knowing which song is pictured on Munawwar Sultana, among the remaining 5 songs of the film, not yet posted. So it is doubly prudent that I chose this song, a female duet, the chances of it featuring Munnawar Sultana doubles. Actually Rehman is the hero, and two singers are talking about him in the song.

Shewan Rizvi is the lyricist, of this wonderfully tuned song. It should have been a popular song, even in 1950 crowded as it was with all the great songs of the era.

This is the present tally of Huslal-Bhagatram and Shewan Rizvi in the blog:

Artist Songs in the blog Career tally of songs
Husnlal Bhagatram 289 451 (50 movies)
Shewan Rizvi 118 381

100th song of Shewan Rizvi was some years ago, which raises the thought that it is time to improve this poets tally in the blog. Some of the 28 movies starring Munawwar Sultana, not yet yippeed or represented in the blog, may have a few more songs filmed on her, and who knows what all pearls are lying in wait to be discovered.


Song-Ham se dil ki lagi na chhupaana (Pyaar Ki Manzil)(1950) Singers-Lata Mangeshkar, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics-Shewan Rizvi, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

dekho ji kahin keh de na nigaahen yeh fasaanaa

Total 36 movies 15 MDs 111 143 93 32 14 4 40 lyricists

Thus we can see that Lata Mangeshkar sang 143 songs under the music direction of 15 Music composers in 1950.

But during those days no one knew what future had in store. If one thinks about it, Geeta Roy was also doing very well. During 1949, she sang 103 songs while Lata Mangeshkar had sung 157 songs 143 songs. In 1950, Geeta Roy sang 166 songs ! More than what Lata Mangeshkar sang in the year ! So, it was Geeta Roy who was ahead of Lata Mangeshkar in 190s in the race for the leading female playback singer of HFM.

Out of 36 movies of 1950, all Lata songs of as many as 20 movies have already been covered. So, only 16 movies of 1950 can be taken up for discussing a Lata song in the blog.

“Apni Chhaayaa”(1950) is alphabetically the first such movie of 1950. This movie was directed by P L Santoshi for Chitralaya Limited, Bombay. This “social” movie had Sulochana Chatterjee, Balwant singh, Radhakishan, Mumtaz Ali, Sajjan, tiwari, Ram Singh, Dulaari, Mona, Neelam, Satyarani, Jawahar Kaul, Bab Raja, Narbada Shankar, Karadkar, Niranjan, Madan singh, Cuckoo etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it, including two Lata songs. Four songs from the movie, including one Lata solo (incorrecly mentioned in HFGK as a Lata Chitalkar duet), namely Andhiyaare ghar mein jyot jali has been covered in the blog.

Here is the second and final Lata song from “Apni Chhaayaa”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Chitalkar. P L Santoshi is the lyricist.

The movie had two music directors, via=z Husnlal Bhagatram Nd Hanuman Prasad. HFGK mentions two songs as Hanuman Prasad composion and is silent about the music directors of other movies. Here I have assumed Husnlal Bhagatram as the music director of the song.

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

Lyrics

Ae jee bade bade
Ae jee bade bade mehlon se wo ghar bhale
jinmein nanha sa preet ka deepak jale
Ae jee bade bade
Ae jee bade bade mehlon se wo ghar bhale
jinmein nanha sa preet ka deepak jale
ae jee bade bade

un mehlon pe laanat
un mehlon pe thhoo
un mehlon pe thhoo
jin ki deewaaron mein daulat ki boo
aji daulat ki boo
jo dukhiyon ke aahon se ban ke khade
jo dukhiyon ke aahon se ban ke khade
Ae jee bade bade
Ae jee bade bade mehlon se wo ghar bhale
jinmein nanha sa preet ka deepak jale
Ae jee bade bade

daulat jahaan hai wahaan laakhon beemaari
laakhon beemaari
laakhon beemaari ki ek hai beemaari
ek hai beemaari
jis mein ghul ghul ke rahne waale maren
jis mein ghul ghul ke rahne waale maren
Ae jee bade bade
Ae jee bade bade mehlon se wo ghar bhale
jinmein nanha sa preet ka deepak jale
Ae jee bade bade

o jee duniya se door kahin ambuwa tale
duniya se door kahin ambuwa tale
chhoti hamaari madhhaiyya bane
tum Radha bano
tum Radha bano
ham Kanhaiyya banen

jahaan preet ki paavan jamuna bahe
aur prem ki mohan bansi baje
Ae jee bade bade
Ae jee bade bade mehlon se wo ghar bhale
jinmein nanha sa preet ka deepak jale
Ae jee bade bade
