Today 13th April 2019 marks one hundred years of the most barbaric massacre of people under the British rule in India. On this day every year we also celebrate ‘Baisakhi’ all over India.

It was hundred years ago on 13th April 1919 that people gathered on the occasion of ‘Baisakhi’ at the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ in Amritsar were fired upon ruthlessly by ‘bullets’ from the British Police and hundreds of them were killed brutally and many hundreds were injured.

This incident can never be forgotten as long as History of India and its freedom struggle will be discussed.

It was during last week that I came across this article on the centenary of this incident of ‘Jallianwala Bagh’.

I was aware that there is a movie on ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ and song of it was posted on the blog. I find ‘Jallianwala Bagh Ki Jyoti’ movie of 1953 on the blog. Since I do not remember any other movie with this title, I thought this ‘1953’ movie was the only one. However, to my surprise I found that there was a movie titled ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ and that too was made in 1987.

When I searched for this movie and its song, I was more surprised to know that the music of this movie was composed by R.D. Burman. and its songs were written by Gulzar Saab. I was shocked that I was not aware of this movie. And to add more to our surprise (or my surprise) Gulzar had acted in this movie and some clips of this movie were available on internet. Though Gulzar Saab acted in this movie his name is not mentioned in the titles of this movie.

This movie is about the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ massacre which took place hundred years back on this day 13th April in 1919 and how the great revolutionary Shahid Udham Singh take revenge of this incident by killing Governer O’Dwyer in London. And he was hanged by the Britishers thereafter and attained martyrdom.

Parishit Sahni played the role of Udham Singh in this movie.

“Jaliyanwala Bagh-1987’ or ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ (1987) was directed by Balraj Tah for ‘Vijayshri Pictures’ presented by Sanjay Khandelwal Film.

Balraj Tah was also the producer of this movie.

It had Vinod Khanna, Parikshit Sahni, Shabana Azmi, Deepti Naval, Om Shivpuri and Mark Freeman (as Governer).
They were supported by Ram Mohan, Burt Doily, J.N. Singh, Sudhir Thakker, Gurmail Singh, June Greshion.

Story of this movie was written by Balraj Tah. Editing was done by Lachhman Dass.
Screenplay and dialogues were written by Gulzar.

Gulzar also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie. He also acted in this movie, however in the title credits his name is not mentioned.

All songs in this movie were sung by Bhupinder Singh. While the music was composed by R.D. Burman.
I could not find the video of the songs of this movie.

The movie had two songs only (I can say that based on the online version of this movie available). First one is ‘Heer’ and the other one which are going to listen today. The today’s song plays at four times in the movie.
First time when Vinod Khanna and Parikshit Sahni are leading the ‘procession’ to assemble in the ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ where we can also see Deepti Naval and many others.
The second version is the sad version and ‘mukhda’ only when Amar (Vinod Khanna) succumbs to the injuries during the firing by British Police.
Few lines of the same song are again repeated when Udham Singh, preparing for O’Dwyer’s assassination remembers his friend Amar. And forth time the song is played with first stanza in the background after Udham Singh (Parikshit Sahni) is hanged by the Britishers and Deepti Naval (widow of Amar-Vinod Khanna) is shown paying tributes at the modern-day ‘Jallianwala Bagh’ memorial.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.01.1987.

Let us pay our tributes to all those martyrs and listen to this song …

Lyrics

(at 00:48:40 in the movie)

Sooliyon pe chadhke choome
Aaftaab ko
Aawaaz denge aao
aaj Inquilaab ko
Ho sooliyon pe chadh ke choome
Aaftaab ko
Aawaaz denge aao
aaj Inquilaab ko
Inquilaab zindaabaad

Log jab uthhe baghaawat ke liye
Imaan se ae
Aandhiyon ko bhaagte dekha Hai

Log jab uthhe baghaawat ke liye
Imaan se ae
Aandhiyon ko bhaagte dekha Hai
is maidaan se
Hamne patthar se lahoo girte huye
Dekha hai yaar
Hamne patthar se lahoo girte huye
Dekha hai yaar

Jab bhi takraayi hai janta
Zulm ki chattaan se ae
Sooliyon pe chadhke choome
Aaftaab ko o

Chhoo ke to dekhen
Shaheedon ki anokhi shaan ko
Jaan ki baazi lagaakar aazmaayen
Jaan ko
Aaj aazaadi ki shammaa par agar jal jaayenge
Aaj aazaadi ki shammaa par agar jal jaayenge
Raushni degaa hamaara naam
Hindustaan ko
Sooliyon pe chadhke choome
Aaftaab ko o
Aawaaz denge aao
aaj Inquilaab ko
Ho sooliyon pe chadhke choome
Aaftaab ko o
Aawaaz denge aao

सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को
हो सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद

लोग जब उठे बगावत के लिए
ईमान से ए
आँधियों को भागते देखा है इस मैदान से
लोग जब उठे बगावत के लिए
ईमान से ए
आँधियों को भागते देखा है इस मैदान से
हमने पत्थर से लहू गिरते हुए
देखा है यार
हमने पत्थर से लहू गिरते हुए
देखा है यार
जब भी टकराई है जनता
ज़ुल्म की चट्टान से ए
सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को ओ
हो सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद

छु के तो देखे
शहीदों की अनोखी शान को
जान की बाज़ी लगाकर आजमाएंगे
जान को
छु के तो देखे
शहीदों की अनोखी शान को
जान की बाज़ी लगाकर आजमाएंगे
जान को
आज आज़ादी की शम्मा पर अगर जल जायेंगे
आज आज़ादी की शम्मा पर अगर जल जायेंगे
रौशनी देगा हमारा नाम
हिन्दुस्तान को
सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को ओ
हो सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद
इन्किलाब जिंदाबाद

सूलियों पे चढ़के चूमे आफताब को
आवाज़ देंगे आओ आज इन्किलाब को
