Geeta Dutt – Solos and duets (02)
————————————–————————————–

Among Geeta Dutt’s endearing songs, there are innumerable duets. Maximum no. of her duets is bound to be with Mohammed Rafi sahab, for the obvious reason that at the times she was most active, coincides with the period when various music directors were having all male songs sung by Rafi sahab. So there are films where Rafi sahab has duets with Lata, Asha and Geeta, plus solos by all of them, with a female duet also thrown it. This would be a typical late 50’s music score. Sometimes a female singer or two are changed and Shamshad Begum is there, with one solo and/or duet.

Looking for major co-singers for Geeta Dutt among the 900 songs already posted in the blog, I have found this list:

Geeta Dutt duets with major playback singers Total duets in the blog
Rafi Geeta Dutt Duets 111
Talat Mehmoood Geeta Dutt duets 21
Lata Geeta Dutt duets 17
Kishore Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 13
Geeta Dutt-Asha Bhonsle duets 25
Mukesh Geeta Dutt duets 14
Shamshad Begam-Geeta Dutt duets 9
Manna Dey Geeta Dutt duets 17
Hemant Kumar Geeta Dutt duets 19
Geeta Dutt Mahendra Kapoor duets 7
G M Durrani Geeta Dutt duets 16
C Ramchandra Geeta Dutt duets 5

While no other singer is crossing the 25 mark in the blog, the duets with Rafi sahab are at 111, so far and counting. I was surprised to find so few with Mukesh at 14 and Shamshad Begum at 9. Mukesh is at 792/932, so the possibility of few more duets with Geeta Dutt is there. Shamshad Begum is at 701/1273, so maybe a few more of these female duets are out there, waiting their turn.

I found this very nice sad melancholy duet of hers with Talat Mehmood. Considering that 386 out of 450 songs of Talat Mehmood are posted in the blog, I am glad to have found not one but two duets of these two. Even then I am optimistic that these two can reach the figure of 25. Presently they are at 21, plus the two song I have found, makes it 23. Let us see where the tally will reach finally.

This song from the film ‘Dr. Z’ is written by Akhtar Romani, and composed by Manohar Arora. These 4 songs of this film are already posted in the blog.

Hello sweety seventeen 9 September 2011
Ye bheegi bheegi raat gagan par taaron ki baaraat 31 October 2018
Main hoon bhaiyya dim timkar 1 March 2019
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani 17 November 2020

Geeta Dutt has three duets to sing in this film one each with Mohammed Rafi, S. Balbir and Talat Mehmood. With this post all three duets by Geeta Dutt in this movie are posted.

Out of 900 odd songs already posted, I can guess less than 350 are duets. Going by this trend remaining 500 songs of Geeta Dutt, 80+ songs with Rafi appeared unlikely, so as to make them 200. I have counted total 147 songs of these two including group songs. So roughly less than 20 duets of Geeta Dutt-Rafi are still at large, we have to catch them sooner or later :-).

The tune of the song reminds me of this 1961 song.


Song-Dil ko laga ke bhool ki dil ka nishaan mitaa diya (Dr Z)(1959) Singers-Geeta Dutt, Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Akhtar Romani, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

dil ko laga ke bhool ki ee
dil ka nisha mita diya aa
dil ka nishaan mita diya
humne bhari bahaar mein
apna chaman jala diya aa
apna chaman jala diya
(aa aa aa aa)

duniya ki har jafa sahi
kuchh bhi magar na keh sake
duniya ki har jafa sahi
kuchh bhi magar na keh sake
humne wafa ke naam par
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya aa
jo kuchh bhi thha luta diya(aa aa aa aa aa)

shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
shiqwa kisi se kya karen
marzi hai ye naseeb ki
chaaha jise mita diya
chaaha jise bana diya
dil ka nishaan mita diya
(aa aa aa aa aa)

leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
leke falak ke chaand ko
koi kare to kya kare
apna bhi ek chaand thha
duniya ne jo chhupa diya aa
duniya ne jo chhupa diya(aa aa aa aa aa)

kis ko khabar thhi pyaar mein
jal jal ke khaaq honge hum
kis ko khabar thhi pyaar mein
jal jal ke khaaq honge hum
khaaq ka kya jahaan mili
jisko mili uda diya aa
jisko mili uda diya
(aa aa aa aa)
hamne bhari bahaar mein
apna chaman jala diya aa
apna chaman jala diya
(aa aa aa aa)

On our blog we have as many as eleven movies containing the word ‘Doctor’ in their titles.

Three of these eleven movies have already been YIPPEED. 😊

Here are the status of these movies in the blog:-

Movie Name Year Songs covered/status of the movie on the blog
Naqli Doctor 1933 1 of 14 songs posted
Dr Madhurika 1935 1 of 9 songs posted
Doctor 1941 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Kumar 1944 1 of 8 songs posted
Lady Doctor 1944 1 of 10 songs posted
Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani 1946 3 of 7 songs posted
Dhobi Doctor 1954 2 of 7 songs posted
Dr Z 1959 3 of 8 songs posted
Dr Shaitaan 1960 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Dr Vidya 1962 All Songs covered (Yippeeee’ed)
Doctor X 1972 1 of 6 songs posted

Today we are going to listen to a song from the movie ‘Doctor-Z’ of the year 1959.

I had come across a song of this movie sung by Rafi Saab long back (in 2014) when I was contributing lyrics on daily basis 😊 However this song missed out from being covered on the blog.

When I came across this song for the first time I was wondering if there was a movie with such title? But then, why not? we already have a ‘Doctor-X’. Then we have a ‘Dhobi Doctor’, a pure ‘Doctor’ and even a ‘Naqli Doctor’ 😊 (I mean in the list of movies) on the blog.

And one Doctor is ‘shaitaan’ too 😊 (wrong person in the ‘noble’ people’s company. 😊

The company of ‘Lady Doctor (s) -1944’ seems to be genuine with the support of Dr Madhurika, Dr Vidya and Dr Kumar. And I can see one ‘Doctor Ramesh-1949’ yet to join this company and need to check more in details. But I certainly remember ‘Ek Doctor Ki Maut-1990’ and that stirs my heart too.

I do not remember to have watched any of the above movies except ‘Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani’ which I watched on ‘Doordarshan’, If my memory serves me right.

As per information available in HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960) today’s movie ‘Doctor-Z’ had Shakeela, Mahipal, Heeralal, Helen, Vinod Diwani, Krishnakumari, Sundar, Mirza Musharraf, Dalpat, Tun Tun, Nasreen, Shetty, Bhudo Advani, Homi, Roosi, Bismillah, Baburao Pahalwan, Radheshyam, Rafiq, Hanuman, Balaram, Dhondu, M.K. Hasan, Karandikar, Sheetal Kumar and others.

This movie was directed by Jaal for ‘Baaliwala Films’ Bombay. Jaal was also the producer of this movie.

This movie had eights songs composed by Manohar and lyrics were penned by Akhtar Romani- fives songs and Jafar Rahi- one song. HFGK is silent on the lyricists for the remaining two songs.

S. No. Song Title Lyricist Posted on
01 Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani Zafar Rahi Being covered now
02 Jaan bhi le jo kahe zamaanaa, maan bhi le…
03 Tere gore rang pe mar gaye… sanam teri chaahat mein
04 Main hoon bhaiyya dim timkar Akhtar Romani 01.03.2019
05 Ye bheegi bheegi raat gagan par taaron ki baraat Akhtar Romani 31.10.2018
06 Dil ko lagaa ke bhool se dil ka nishaan mitaa diya Akhtar Romani
07 Sitaaron tum chamakte ho… aasmaan pe hai Akhtar Romani
08 Hello sweety seventeen, kaisi hai tabiyat Akhtar Romani 09.11.2011

Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Geeta Dutt, Talat Mahmood, Uma Devi and Balbir had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.10.1959.

From the above table we can see that the first song of this movie was posted on 09.11.2011 and after that second song was posted almost a gap of seven years, but the third song from this movie was posted the next year. Today’s song is being posted after another year, so the last three songs from the movie have been covered at the rate of one song every year. 😊

Today’s song is written by Zafar Rahi and it is sung by Mohd Rafi. Music is composed by Manohar.

I have not yet listened to other songs of this movie but many seems to be already available and I am sure they must be interesting songs to listen and enjoy.

Let us now enjoy this soulful rendition by Rafi Saab and some great heart touching lyrics by Zafar Rahi …

bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
ashqon ki zubaani hain
kuchh aahon ki zubaani
ashqon ki zubaani hai
kuchh aahon ki zubaani

Song-Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani (Dr Z)(1959) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Zafar Rahi, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa aa aa
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

Kitni hi ummeedon se sajaai hai ye duniya
Main khush thha ke khud
Maine banaayi hai ye duniya
Lekin teri duniya ne jalaa di meri duniya
Yaad aate hain wo din to
Sulagtaa hai kalejaa
Thhamta nahin aahon ka dhuaan
Seene ke andar
Rukti nahin roke se
In ashqon ki rawaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Ujadi huyi basti ka nishaan tak nahin milta
wo aag lagaayi ke dhuaan tak nahin milta
Har geet khushi ka hai
Sisakti huyi fariyaad
Seene se lagaaye huye
Phirta hoon bas ek yaad
Honthon pe kuchh aahen hai
To aankhon me kuchh aansoo
Le de ke yahi reh gayi
ik saari nishaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani

Bhagwaan mujhe dekh ke main
Haq pe ladaa hoon
Sachchaai ka deepak liye
Aandhi mein khadaa hoon
Andhiyaaron se imaan ki
Baaten na chhupengi ee
Thhak jayegaa raahi
Kabhi raahen na thhakengi ee
Sach bol kahin dil tera
Patthhar to nahin hai ae ae ae
Chup chaap jo suntaa hain tu
Insaan ki kahaani
Ashqon ki zabaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zabaani
Bhagwaan ik insaan ki sunaata hoon kahaani
Ashqon ki zubaani hai
Kuchh aahon ki zubaani

आ आ आ
आ आ आ
आ आ आ आ आ

भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

कितनी ही उम्मीदों से सजाई है ये दुनिया
मैं खुश था के खुद
मैंने बनायीं है ये दुनिया
लेकिन तेरी दुनिया ने जला दी मेरी दुनिया
याद आते है वो दिन तो
सुलगता हा कलेजा
थमता नहीं आहों का धुंआ
सीने के अन्दर
रूकती नहीं रोके से
इन अश्कों की रवानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

उजड़ी हुयी बस्ती का निशाँ तक नहीं मिलता
ओ आग लगाई के धुंआ तक नहीं मिलता
हर गीत ख़ुशी का है
सिसकती हुयी फ़रियाद
सीने से लगाए हुए
फिरता हूँ बस एक याद
होंठों पे कुछ आहें है
तो आँखों में कुछ आँसू
ले दे के यही रह गयी
इक सारी निशानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी

भगवान् मुझे देख के मैं
हक पे लड़ा हूँ
सच्चाई का दीपक लिए
आंधी में खडा हूँ
अंधियारों से ईमान की
बातें न छुपेंगी ई
थक जाएगा राही
कभी राहे न थकेंगी ई
सच बोल कहीं दिल तेरा
पत्थर तो नहीं है ए ए ए
चुप चाप जो सुनता हैं तू
इंसान की कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी
भगवान् इक इंसान की सुनाता हूँ कहानी
अश्कों की जुबानी है
कुछ आहों की जुबानी

“Chingaari”(1955) was directed by S Srivastava for co-operative pictures production, Bombay. The movie had Shekhar, Nalini Jaywant, Leela Misra, Sunalini Devi, Pran etc in it.

This forgotten movie had eight rare songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Chingaari”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Shailendra is the lyricist. Music is composed by Manohar aka Manohar Arora.


Song-Ye dil ki majbooriyaan (Chingaari)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

ye dil ki majbooriyan aur ye pyaase nain
uljhan ki is raat mein do dil hain bechain
ye dil ki majbooriyaan

poochh raha hai chaand gagan ka hum kyun hain majboor
poochh raha hai chaand gagan ka hum kyun hain majboor
saath hain donon paas hain donon
phir bhi kitni door
kis dar ne kis soch ne chheena inka chain
ye dil ki majbooriyaan

apni manzil pe aakar bhi
kyun ye dil ghabraaye
apni manzil pe aakar bhi
kyun ye dil ghabraaye
dil ghabraaye
neend na aaye
har aahat chaukaaye
anjaane is des mein kaate kate na rain
ye dil ki majbooriyaan

pyaar agar hai paas to batla
ae duniya naadaan
pyaar agar hai paas to batla
ae duniya naadaan
tujhmein aisa kya hai jispe naaz kare insaan
kuchh na soojhe preet mein jab uljhen do nain
ye dil ki majbooriyaan aur ye pyaase nain
ye dil ki majbooriyaan

This movie had seven Lata solo songs in it. It can be assumed that they were all meant for the lead actress viz Nalini Jaiwant.


Song-Dhak dhak dhadke jiyara laaga rog suhaana(Chingaari)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

dhak dhak

dhadke jiyara
dhadke jiyara
laaga rog suhaana
laaga rog suhaana
ghadi ghadi
ghadi ghadi dil mein aaye jaaye
aaye jaaye
ek pardesi anjaana
ho o laaga rog suhaana

kal maine unko dekha
ek sapna din ko dekha
nain mila ke neh lagaa ke
chain ganwaaya
apnon se main aankh churaaun
ho o
aankh churaaun
man bhaaya begaana
ho o
laaga rog suhaana

mere nainon se
mere nainon se dil me samaaye koi
mere honthon ko hansna sikhaaye koi
man mandir mein seekh rahi hoon
seekh rahi hoon
pyaar ke deep jalaana
ho o
laaga rog suhaana

chhup chhup jhaanke taaron se
chain churaaye ishaaron se
paas na aaye
door na jaaye
ji tarsaaye
man ke chor ko dekh na paaun
ko dekh na paaun
mile na koi bahaana
ho o
laaga rog suhaana
dhak dhak
dhak dhak
dhadke jiyara
dhadke jiyara
laaga rog suhaana
laaga rog suhaana

This movie had seven Lata solo songs in it, so it follows that they were all meant for the lead actress viz Nalini Jaiwant. And so we can safely assume that this song was lip synced by Nalini Jaiwant in the movie.

This song, like other songs of the movie, is a forgotten gem.


Song-Raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan (Chingaari)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shailendra, MD-Manohar Arora

Lyrics

raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan
aa
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan

dil bechaara toota hua
gham ke haathon loota hua
kheench rahe hain is jaal ko
beraham ?? juda
ae suhaane gham tu bata
main tujhe ab chhupaaun kahaan
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan

dil ke mehmaan dil se bhi ja
ab tu is duniya mein na aa
bhool ja mujhko tu bhool ja
poochh na mujhse koi wajah
dil bhi mera dil na raha
ab tujhe main basaaun kahaan
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan
apna paraaya koi nahin
sar pe jhuk aaya aasmaan aa
raah na soojhe jaaun kahaan
lut gaye mere donon jahaan aan

It is a well-known fact that the singing career of Suman Kalyanpur in Hindi film industry remained under the shadow of Lata Mangeshkar mainly because many in the Hindi film industry felt that her voice was too close to that of Lata Mangeshkar. When Suman Kalyanpur started her playback singing career in 1954, Lata Mangeshkar was already well established in Hindi films. When the choice came for the music directors between the two, producers and/or distributors would pressurize music directors to engage Lata Mangeshkar as her songs were more saleable than that of the new comers. There could be some other reasons also which stunted her career path.

When I was growing up in late 1960s and the whole of 1970s, I was familiar with the then current generation singers like Kishore Kumar, Lata, Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Mukesh etc. My exposure to old generation singers was initially through the “puraani filmon ke geet” programme of Radio Ceylon (later renamed SLBC) from 7-30 to 8 AM. It is not that I consciously listened to this programme. On a typical morning, one of the elders in the home (who was in the position of “authority” to operate the radio would switch on the radio, and if I was lucky then the radio station tuned would be Radio Ceylon. The early morning programme was instrumental music where tunes of Hindi movie songs, played by Enoch Daniels were broadcast. I loved this programme because listening to instrumentals of current songs was a new and thrilling experience for me. This programme would then be followed by programmes where old songs were played and I was not interested in them. I would wait for 8 AM, when the last song of “Puraani filmon ke geet” would be sung by K L Saigal and then the “Aap hi ke geet” farmaishi programme would start, much to the glee of farmaish senders from Jhumri Tilaiyya, Ganj Basoda, Yavatmal, Rajnandgaaon etc. 🙂
