“Sajni”(1956) was directed by Vasant Painter for Golden Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Sulochana, Anoop Kumar, Sapru, Gope, Krishna Kumari, Maruti, Nimbalkar, Lalita Pawar etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Sajni”(1956) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Pt Narendra Sharma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sudhir Phadke.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this nice song full with words that are rare for a Hindi movie song though are common for a Hindi textbook.


Song-Saajan ke paas chali sajni (Sajni)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Pt Narendra Sharma, MD-Sudhir Phadke

Lyrics

tan pujan ka thhaal hai
man poojan ka phool
sajan milan ko ja rahi ee
sajni sab dukh bhool

saajan ke paas chali sajni
milan ki rajni aa gayi
milan ki rajni aa gayi
saajan ke paas chali sajni
milan ki rajni aa gayi
milan ki rajni aa gayi

dhan indradhanush tan sohe
darpan mein roop man mohe
dhan indrdanush tan sohe
darpan mein rup man mohe
nakh shikh singaar sanwaara
chhab nainon ko bha gayi
milan ki rajni aa gayi
saajan ke paas chali sajni
saajan ke paas chali sajni

kahin bajti milan bansuriya aa
kahin bajti milan bansuriya
bina piya kahe jiya piya piya
bina piya kahe jiya piya piya
mere man mein ras ki badariya
barsi phir chha gayi
milan ki rajni aa gayi
saajan ke paas chali sajni
saajan ke paas chali sajni

ban chitwan chandr chakori
ban chitwan chandr chakori
tum daalo kiran ki dori
tum daalo kiran ki dori
main lapton ke pat pahne
agan ke rath mein aa rahi
milan ki rajni aa gayi
saajan ke paas chali sajni
milan ki rajni aa gayi
milan ki rajni aa gayi
saajan ke paas chali sajni
saajan ke paas chali sajni
saajan ke paas chali sajni
saajan ke paas chali sajni

“Jigar”(1949) was directed by Bhagwan for Chandni Chitra Production. The movie had Bhagwan, Leela Gupte, Vasantrao, Baburao etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jigar”(1949) to appear in the blog. This light hearted romantic song is sung by Lata and C Ramchandra. Ehsan Rizvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song is picturised on Bhagwan and leela Gupte.


Song-Chori chori tumse mulaaqaat huyi (Jigar)(1949) Singers-C Ramchandra, Lata Lyrics-Ehsan Rizvi, MD-C Ramchandra
Both

Lyrics

chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
dekho na jaane koi
aapas mein kya baat hui
dekho na jaane koi
aapas mein kya baat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

aankhon ke andaaz ko duniya pahchaane kyun
dil ke hanse rone ko aur koi jaane kyun
aayi bahaar kab
kis din ye barsaat hui
aayi bahaar kab
kis din ye barsaat hui

chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

dil ki mulakaat nahin gadbad se khaali
aisa na ho
ek din dekhen kotwaali
tum to sasuraal gayin
aji humko hawaalaat hui
tum to sasuraal gayin
aji humko hawaalaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

dil se mila dil
to aafat bhi jhelna
aasaan pyaar mein hai agni se khelna
dil se mila dil
to aafat bhi jhelna
aasaan pyaar mein hai agni se khelna

himmat badhaaogi to sukh bhi uthhaaogi
nahin to fansa ke humen aansu bahaaogi
nahin to fansa ke humen aansu bahaaogi
waada nibhaana pakki baat hui
waada nibhaana pakki baat hui

dekho na jaane koi aapas mein kya baat hui
dekho na jaane koi aapas mein kya baat hui

chori chori
ho chori chori
chori chori tumse mulaakaat hui

hullo to atuldom

I am trying to wish two people on their birthday with this one post.

Yesterday, 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar Singh of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

He was born in Hyderabad in 1922 which means he would have been 95. He started his career with a theatre group before shifting to Prithvi Theatre. That is where he learnt to play the Tabla, and several other instruments like the Sitar, Accordion and Piano. Besides his work at Prithvi he also started working as assistant to Husnlal Bhagatram and nurtured ambitionof becoming an independent music director.He met a struggling Jaikishan Panchal, a harmonium player, outside the office of a Gujarati film director and instantly offered him a job at Prithvi without even consulting Prithviraj Kapoor. But Prithviraj honoured Shankar’s word and appointed Jaikishan as the Harmonium player of Prithvi Theatre.

It was here that they got to know Raj Kapoor and when Raj Kapoor debuted as director in 1948 with “Aag”. Ram Ganguly was the music director and Shankar and Jaikishan were the assistants. For RK’s “Barsaat”. Raj Kapoor took Shankar as the music director who insisted that on taking Jaikishan as partner and history was made. Their filmography contains a wide range of music that made Bollywood history. It has music of all genres. And they continued as a team till the untimely death of Jaikishan in 1971. But even after 1971 all the music composed by Shankar was credited to the duo. But today’s song is from a 1975 film so definitely it has to be a Shankar creation.

The second person who is being wished with this song is my childhood favourite. She is another of the persons whose appearance on the small screen makes me stop in my tracks/ chores even today. I was floored by her beauty from the first time I set my eyes on her in 1971/72. And am amazed at how she has managed to maintain herself even today as turns 69 today- cannot believe she is 69!!! Does not look it at all!!! Probably it is her constant riyaaz of dance- she is a classical dancer- that is the secret behind her looks.

She has been the darling of the audiences from her first Bollywood debut opposite Raj Kapoor in 1968. (she first faced the camera at 15 for Tamil film “Ithu Sathiyam” as a dancer and supporting actress). Now I know all the followers of this blog have understood that I am talking of my Basanti alias Hema Malini. And just so that this post doesn’t become very long I am not going to list all of my favourite Hema Malini films here. Neither am I going to list all her co-stars here. Nor am I giving a list of her songs which have been playing inside my head since morning. 😉

Let us get to the song straight away. It is from Sohanlal Kanwar’s “Sanyasi” (1975). The song is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Vithalbhai Patel.

A strange coincidence the two people whose birthday is being celebrated with this song -both had their Bollywood debut with Raj Kapoor.


Song-Baali umariya bhajan karoon kaise (Sanyaasi)(1975) Singers-Lata, Mukesh, Lyrics-Vitthal Bhai Patel, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

saadhu hoon tera sajan banoon kaise

“Delhi Junction”(1960) was produced by RL Sharma and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Nigaaristan (India) Films, Bombay. The movie had Ajeet, Shakeela, Nishi, Maruti, Manorama, Tiwari, Pran, Protima Devi, Murad, Rafiq, Kamal Mohan, Harun, Anwari Bai, Pal Sharma, Jagdish Kanwal, Nadir, Satish, Sadiq, Sarita, Kukku, Rajni, and Khurshid etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that were penned by four lyricists viz. PL Santoshi, Prem Dhawan, Farooque Kaiser and Gulshan Bawra. 

Four songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Delhi Junction”(1960). This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. It is penned by Prem Dhawan. Music is composed by Kalyanji.

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

The audio of this song is not as good as it could be and the voices of the two singers (which otherwise are distinct) often cannot be separated from each other. Hopefully my colour coding is correct for the two voices.


Song-Kya karoon dil kahin pe kho gaya (Delhi junction)(1960) Singers-Lata, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Kalyanji

Lyrics

kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa

kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya
kitna roka kitna toka
par sambhaala na gaya ho
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

kya khata thhi ye nazar ki
ya dilon ka josh thha aa

aankh milte ho gaya kya
kisko itna hosh thha
dekhti hi rah gayi main
dekhti hi rah gayi main
jaane kya ho gaya
ho o o
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

pyaar se na bach sakoge
phir ye darna kis liye ae

sochte thhe dil lagaa ke
aahen bharna kis liye
phir bhi dhokha kha hi baithhe
phir bhi dhokha kha hi baithhe
pyaar ho hi gaya
ho o o
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

kitna roka kitna toka
par sambhaala na gaya ho
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

Today (28 september 2017) is the birth anniversary of one and only Lata Mangeshkar. People may have wondered why there was a lull in the blog today. These days we have just a couple of posts daily with some rare days when we manage to crank up the rate to day four of five songs a day.

Lata Mangeshkar is the most well represented artist in the blog. As many as 3244 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar are represented in the blog. There was a time when she averaged over one song a day in the blog. With less songs posted in the blog over the last couple of years, now the figure stands at 3244 songs /3359 days, viz. 0.966 songs per day.

Out of these 3244 songs, as many as 2074 songs are solo songs. So the remaining 1170 of her songs are duets and others. Her most common singing partner has been Rafi. The two of them have collaborated in around 415 duets or so. As many as 328 of these duets are already represented in the blog.

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birth anniversary today, here is a less heard Rafi Lata duet. This song is from “Band Master” (1963). This movie was directed by Ravindra Dave for R L Films, Bombay. This obscure movie had Jagdeep, Azra, Lalita Pawar, Rajan Haksar, Ravikant etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs including the song under question. But on listening to the songs, one can easily identify the voices in all four songs.

The song under discussion, the third song from the movie to be covered here, is sung by Lata and Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar (28 september 1929), here is the 329th Rafi-Lata duet to appear in the blog. I take this opportunity to wish her a very happy birth anniversary and wish her many more happy returns of the day.


Song-Sajna saawan aaya (Band Master)(1963) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

sajna
saawan aaya
sajna saawan aaya
haaye
dil udke chala hai baadal mein

mujhko saath liya ja
mujhko saath liya ja
haaye
dil baandh ke mera aanchal mein

hosh lutaa ke
hosh mein aaye
ye hai paheli kaisi
koi samjhaaye
hosh lutaa ke

dil to ganwaaya to jeene ka maza hai paaya
sajna saawan aaya
sajna saawan aaya
haaye
dil udke chala hai baadal mein
ho
sajna saawan aaya

mujhpe nasheeli nazren na daalo
gir gir jaau main to aake sambhaalo
mujhpe nasheeli nazren na daalo
gir gir jaaun main to aake sambhaalo
hum kya sambhaalen
ke ham pe bhi nasha hai chhaaya
mujhko saath liya ja
mujhko saath liya ja
haaye
dil baandh ke mera aanchal mein
ho

sajna saawan aaya

Song-Pyaar ka hai mausam (Baazigar)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

pyaar ka hain mausam

“Sultaana Daaku”(1956), not to be confused with “Sultaana Daaku”(1972), was produced by Ramesh Ganatra and Rajni Modi and directed by Mohan Sinha for R D films, Bombay. This “social”(?) movie had Sheila Ramani, Jairaj, Roopmala, B M Vyas, Anil Kishore, Dubey, Amrit Rana, Krishnakumari, Heera Sawant, Ameena Bai, Raju, Lily Kelkar, Abdul azmeri, Master Babla etc in it.

This by now obscure movie had seven songs in it that were penned by four lyricists and were sung by more than eight singers.

Here is the first song from “Sultaana Daaku”(1956) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Tanveer Naqvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bipin Baabul.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throq light on the movie and also on the picturisation of this song.

While I have been able to get most of the lyrics right, there are still some words where I have got stuck. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

This is a nice song to listen to, though I wonder what this song in doing in a movie titled “Sultaana Daaku”(1956) where characters should be rough and tough and not used to the tender feelings that this song expresses. 🙂

With this song, “Sultaana Daaku”(1956) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Hai qismat ka khel dilon ka mel (Sultaana Daaku)(1956) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Tanveer Naqvi, MD-Bipin Babul

Lyrics

ye hai kaisi reet

gham ki lay par gaate gaate
gham ki lay par gaate gaate
doob chali aawaaz
taaren bikhrin naghme ujde
taaren bikhrin naghme ujde
toot gaya hai saaz ho o o
ho gaya dil paamaal
hamaara haal zamaana kya jaane
ye hai kaisi reet
ki apne meet
bane hain begaane

is duniya mein pyaar bhare dil
is duniya mein pyaar bhare dil

kitne dilon ke rotey armaa..aa..aan

है किस्मत का खेल
दिलों का मेल
अरे दिल दीवाने
ये है कैसी रीत
कि अपने मीत
बने हैं बेगाने
है किस्मत का खेल

ग़म कि लय पर गाते गाते
ग़म कि लय पर गाते गाते
डूब चली आवाज़
तारें बिखरीं नग़मे उजड़े
तारें बिखरीं नग़मे उजड़े
टूट गया है साज हो ओ ओ
हो गया दिल पामाल
हमारा हाल ज़माना क्या जाने
ये है कैसी रीत
कि अपने मीत
बने हैं बेगाने
है किस्मत का खेल

इस दुनिया में प्यार भरे दिल
इस दुनिया में प्यार भरे दिल
होते हैं बर्बाद
कितने दिलों के रोते अरमा॰॰आं॰॰आं
कितने दिलों के रोते अरमां
करते हैं फरियाद हो ओ
आंसूं थे अंजान
रहे नाकाम वफा के अफसाने
ये है कैसी रीत
कि अपने मीत
बने हैं बेगाने
है किस्मत का खेल

Today’s song is from film Raag Rang-52. The film was produced by Bali sisters, Bombay banner. The producer was Hari Darshan bali, the Director was Digvijay Bali ( elder brother of Geeta Bali) and the heroine of the film was Geeta Bali, opposite Ashok kumar. At this time, the age of Geeta Bali was just 22 years and Ashok kumar was almost double of her age, at 41 years !

Ashok kumar was probably the earliest star actor who was called an Evergreen Actor, because he continued to do Hero’s roles till he was 49 years old ! However, after he retired, Dev Anand overtook him by doing Hero’s roles till he was 66 years old. So, truly speaking, Dev Anand was the real Evergreen Hero ! But, surprisingly, a Meteor, or call it a Hurricane-if you like it- Called Rajesh khanna, swept these two first generation stalwarts and created a Record of doing Maximum Films as a Hero. You will be ( or may be not ) surprised to read that Rajesh Khanna has an Unbroken Record of doing 106 films as a solo Hero, followed by Dev Anand with 92 films and Ashok kumar at the 3rd number with 86 films as a Solo Hero !

In last so many years- till 1980 – I must have seen hundreds of Films- Hindi, Marathi, English, Tamil, Telugu, kannada, Malyalam and Konkani. In the Hindi films, I can not forget 3 actresses, who were Bubbly, playful, with innocent looks and with Natural acting talent. They were Meena Shorey, Nalini Jaywant and Geeta Bali. I enjoyed every film of these actresses, which i saw. It is difficult to forget the role and acting of Meena Shorey in film ” Ek thi Ladki-49″, or Nalini Jaywant in film ” Hum sab chor hain-56″, or Geeta Bali in film ” Aji Bas Shukriya-58″. These were all my favourite actresses. it is very unfortunate that they all met their deaths in very tragic circumstances.

Geeta Bali’s dancing eyes and her animated, expressive face which mirrored her soul were her most outstanding features. Yet life was snatched away from this vibrant personality at an achingly young age of 35.It is some consolation that Geeta crammed a lot into her short life: 80 odd films in a ten-year career.

She married struggling actor-turned-megastar Shammi Kapoor and mothered two children: a son and a daughter. Today, she is remembered as a wonderfully natural actress and a fabulous human being.She was quite close to her sisters and brother. her childhood pet name was KEETA.

True, Geeta’s reputation as an actress rests more on her performances than her roles. Natural, spontaneous and gifted with a spot-on sense of comic timing, she never really found a vehicle worthy of her talent. Largely a shade better than the movies she starred in, she frittered away her talents in B-grade films.

Probably the fact that she was born into a family that had to struggle for sheer survival and the fact that she reached the top through sheer grit had Geeta stress on quantity rather than quality. Film lore has it that when mentor [filmmaker] Kidar Sharma first met Geeta, she was living with her family in somebody’s bathroom!

Geeta, who was born on 30-11-1930 at Amritsar, as Harikirtan Kaur, had done a few small-time dancing roles in pre-Partition Punjab in films like Badnami-46, Kahan gaye-46 and Pat jhad-48, before moving to Mumbai. Impressed by her off-screen vivacity, Sharma cast Geeta in his Suhaag Raat (1948). Audiences related to her instantly and watched wide-eyed as she nonchalantly tossed her unconscious hero, Bharat Bhushan over her shoulder in a scene.

Soon, Geeta was inundated with contracts (that’s what they called film offers then). She accepted most. She won raves even in supporting roles like in the 1949 Suraiya starrer Badi Behan and the Madhubala starrer Dulari.

In 1951, she became a major star with Guru Dutt’s first hit, Baazi (she went on to do three other films under his direction). Geeta played gangster’s moll with a golden heart to Kalpana Kartik’s conventional heroine. But Geeta played her role with such gay abandon that hero Dev Anand divulges, “People came repeatedly to theatres to see Geeta’s spirited dancing to Tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana de.

Geeta proved she could do tragedy (Sharma’s Raj Kapoor starrer Bawre Nain) or and play the lighthearted heroine to comedian Bhagwan in the super successful Albela. Albela’s swinging C Ramchandra composed songs like Shola jo bhadkeand Sham dhale mere khidki tale made front-benchers dance with the stars and even fling coins on screen.

Pug-nosed Geeta was no conventional beauty, but that transparent face and that smile constantly flirting on her lips made sure you couldn’t tear your eyes away from her.

Watch Geeta Bali in the Guru Dutt-directed Jaal (1952). Dev Anand, a cigarette-smoking smuggler on the run from the police, tries to entice morally upstanding heroine Geeta into his web. Geeta evocatively communicates her struggle against, and her eventual surrender to, handsome Dev’s seduction call Yeh raat, yeh chaandni phir kahan.

Famously down-to-earth despite her star status, Geeta was the antithesis of the coy 1950s’ heroine. She often drove herself to her premieres in an open jeep. Those who knew her claim she was a Samaritan who touched the lives of whoever she met. She is said to have personally groomed Mala Sinha, then a newcomer.

To date, so many years after her death, her secretary Surinder Kapoor’s (Boney Kapoor’s father) productions begin with a shraddhanjali to Geeta Bali.

Shammi Kapoor entered her life when they worked in the quaintly named Miss Coca Cola and Coffee House together. On an impulse, Geeta played a small role of a man in Sharma’s Shammi Kapoor starrer Rangeen Raatein. On the film’s Ranikhet outdoor, Shammi and Geeta fell in love.

Kapoor was a year younger to her and was not yet a star, but the twosome were hell bent on marrying each other. Geeta had worked with Shammi’s eldest brother, Raj Kapoor in Bawre Nain, and with his father, Prithviraj Kapoor in Anand Math, Shammi was unsure about their reaction to this match.

But on August 23, 1955, with producer-director Hari Walia as witness, the couple were married at the Banganga Temple at 4 am.

Geeta continued to work after marriage in a few films like Sohrab Modi’s Jailor (1958), where she won raves as a blind girl. With Shammi Kapoor turning into a huge star and the birth of her two children Aditya (nicknamed Mickey) and Kanchan, she eased her workload.

The desire to do that one fulfilling role she would be remembered for prompted Geeta to attempt the production of a classic for herself. She started Rano, based on Rajinder Singh Bedi’s famous novel, Ek Chaddar Maili Si, based on a widow’s remarriage to her brother-in-law.

Upcoming star Dharmendra played her hero.

Geeta, had not been vaccinated for small pox, despite the fact her father too had died of Small Pox. She had ignored repeated warnings in the child hood. She contracted the dreaded disease while shooting the film. The best care was rushed to her, but her fever apparently reached 107 degrees. Her doctor saw a picture by his patient’s bedside and asked who the pretty lady was. The disease had so wracked Geeta’s frail frame that he didn’t recognise her as the same person!

Geeta Bali passed away on January 21, 1965, leaving behind eight-year-old Aditya and three-year-old Kanchan in the care of a devastated Shammi Kapoor.

Ironically, she was cremated in Banganga, not far from where she was married. ( adapted from Rediffmail.com, with thanks.)

Film Raag Rang-52 had 11 songs. 8 songs are already discussed and posted in the Blog. Today’s song is the 9th song. This is a lively duet. Since I have not seen the movie, I can not say on whom it is filmed, but from the lyrics, it looks that it might have been filmed on Geeta Bali. This duet is sung by Lata Mangeshkar, Trilok Kapoor and chorus. Now, this singer Trilok Kapoor is a case of ‘ Same name confusion’. There was another actor Trilok Kapoor ( famous for the role of Mahadev in Mythological films) operating at the same time in the industry. Since he was the more famous one, most sites, Blogs and enthusiastic new music lovers credit this singer’s songs to the actor. I reproduce here what I wrote about this singer and the actor in my series ” Same name Confusions” posted on http://www.anmolfankaar.com, about 3 years ago.

About the Singer TRILOK KAPOOR….

He too was from Multan, just like the actor Trilok kapoor, and was keen on singing in films. He and his wife have sung many Punjabi songs.
Singer Trilok kapoor sang a song in film Birhan-48 (Tu chanda main teri chakori – a duet with Dilshad Begum- record No. GE 5232). The film was in the making in 1946 at Lahore, but was released in 1948 due to Partition in 47.

The singer of this song can not be the actor Trilok kapoor, for the simple reason that he was busy in making 4 films in 1946 in Bombay and it is impossible that just to sing a song in a film, anybody would go to Lahore in those tumultous days.
Anyway, after the Partition, the singer Trilok Kapoor became a displaced person. He came to Bombay and met MD Shyamsunder, who sympathised with him, being a Punjabi himself from the same region. Shyam Sunder gave him a song in Bhai Behan-1950, a duet with Shamshad Begum. He got a job in Radio and continued singing in films like Guru Dakshina, Raag rang, Titlee,Goonj, Naya Raasta, Miss Mala, Saloni, Tootey Khiloune, Laadla and finally his last song in Trolley Driver-1958.

So, the actor Trilok Kapoor and singer Trilok Kapoor are two different persons-

1) Actor Trilok Kapoor never sang after 1942.

2) Singer Trilok Kapoor never sang in any film featuring actor Trilok Kapoor.

3) If actor Trilok Kapoor was a singer himself, he would have sung his own songs in his films, instead of taking playback from other singers, e.g. G M Durrani in Mirza Sahibaan-47. Those who are singer actors rarely take playback from others.

4) The voice of Trilok Kapoor in songs and the dialogues in films is different.

5) It is likely that,actually the song of Aaj ki Duniya-40 and the duets of Raja Rani also were sung by the singer Trilok Kapoor, as he sang a song in Birhan in 1946, as mentioned above with record number. the entry in HFGK may be just a case of ” Same name confusion” (like few other cases). Since the songs are not available, the benefit of doubt should go to singer Trilok Kapoor because he was a singer and NOT to actor Trilok Kapoor as he was NOT a singer.

6) The final verdict was Shamshad begum had confirmed over Phone that Trilok Kapoor with whom she sang was NOT the actor/brother of Prithviraj Kapoor, but was a different person.

So,please remember,actor Trilok Kapoor and singer Trilok Kapoor were two different persons.

Let us now enjoy the catchy duet from the film Raag Rang-52. The Music Director is Roshan.

“Teesri Gali” (1958) was directed by Kundan Kumar for Radiant movies production. The movie had Shyama, Abhi Bhattacharya, Prem Adeeb, Gope, Mohan Choti, Kammo, Neeru, Leela Mishra, Nagpal, Bhagwan Sinha, Dubey, Panchotia, Ramlal Pahalwan, Arya Kumar, C N Kapoor etc in it.

This obscure “social” movie had six songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from this movie to appear in the blog. It is sung by Lata. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitrgupta.

Only the audio of this song is avilable. My guess is that this song was picturised on Shyama. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Tauba jee tauba na poochho mera haal (Teesri Gali)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
sun kar ke sainyyaan ji thaamenge bainyaan
bahak gayi chaal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal

unke khayaalon ke jhoole mein jhool ke
kaliyon se kheloon main kaanton ko bhool ke
unke khayaalon ke jhoole mein jhool ke
kaliyon se kheloon main kaanton ko bhool ke
mukh se lagaaa li jo phoolon ki daali
ulajh gaye baal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal

koi samajh le
kare aisa raam na
maare khushi ke pada dil ko thhaamna
koi samajh le
kare aisa raam na
maare khushi ke pada dil ko thhaamna
kahti hoon ji se jo milna hai pi se
to khud ko sambhaal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal

ban ke deewaani balam ji ki chaah mein
doloon akeli mohabbat ki raah mein
ban ke deewaani balam ji ki chaah mein
doloon akeli mohabbat ki raah mein
rasta na jaana kahin ye zamaana chale na koi chaal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
sunkar ke sainyaan ji thaamenge bainyan
bahak gayi chaal
tauba ji tauba
na poochho mera haal
