Today’s song is from a South Indian film, dubbed into Hindi – Piya Milan-1958.

The decade of the 50’s saw almost a spate of Hindi films from South. Some were dubbed, some were remakes and a few were first made in Hindi before they were remade into Tamil or Telugu etc.

Film Titles having the word ” Piya” were made in every decade since the advent of the Talkie films, till the end of the Century.

30’s – Piya Pyaare-1934, Piya ki Jogan-1936
40″s – Piya Milaqn-1945, Piya Ghar Aaja-1947
50″s – Piya (UR), Piya Milan-1958
60″s – Piya Milan ki Aas-1961
70’s – Piya Ka Ghar-1972
80’s – Piya Milan 1985
90’s – Piya ki Jogan-1997.

Except the 2 films of the 30’s and the un released film, I have seem most other films. I consider ‘ Piya Ka Ghar”-1972 as the best among the ‘Piya’ films. It was a remake of a Hit Marathi film – Mumbaicha Jawai-1970. It was directed by my favourite Basu Chaterjee. A genuinely talented actress Jaya Bhaduri was cast opposite a very handsome Non Actor Anil Dhavan in this film.

Film “Piya Milan” was originally a Tamil film MARMAVEERA-56, dubbed in Hindi by R R Productions. The film was originally made by Jubilee films, Madras. The star cast was Shri Ram, Vyjayantimala, Raja Sulochana, V.Nagaiah, T S Baliah, P S Veerappa, Tanghvelu, Chandra Babu etc.

The Hindi version was directed by Raghunath and the music was by Ramesh Naidu. Most songs were having the same tunes as given by the Tamil original’s composer S.Vedhu. The Hindi songs were written by Harsh(3) and Hasrat Jaipuri(6).

The greatest attraction of this film was the Guest appearance by N T Rama Rao, Sivaji Ganeshan and Gemini Ganeshan.

These are the heavyweight actors of the south. Since the 1950’s decade, every south artiste’s dream was to shine in Hindi film industry, because Hindi films meant All India fame and an honour. In this dream many actresses achieved success, but comparatively actors were almost nowhere. The only name perhaps could be taken was that of actor Ranjan and few more. However, Jamuna, Vaijayantimala, Hema malini, Ragini, Padmini, Rekha and many more actresses from South became famous in Hindi films. Likewise when the Tamil and Telugu industry became a big one, many actresses like Khushbu etc from the Hindi land became famous in South films. Somehow males could not achieve this.

One of the major problems for south Indian artistes is the Hindi language. The actresses like Vaijayantimala, Hema Malini and Rekha became experts, but Southern actors could not cross this hurdle. N.T.Ramarao ( 28-5-1923 to 18-1-1996) too tried hard. He featured in 23 Hindi films which were mostly dubbed films barring few. One film Brahmarshi Vishwamitra-1991 was even directed by him. Sivaji Ganeshan (1-10-1927 to 21-7-2001) a winner of the prestigious ” Dadasaheb Phalke Award” in 1996, also featured in 19 Hindi films. Gemini Ganesan-real name R.Ganesan ( 17-11-1920 to 22-3-2005) was actress Rekha’s father. He acted in 24 Hindi films.

Similarly many music directors also had the same desire to shine in Hindi films, but had the same problem of language. One of these MDs was P.Ramesh Naidu who gave music to the Hindi film Piya Milan-1958.

Pasupuleti Ramesh Naidu (Born 18-10-1933,Died 2-9-2005) was born in Kondapalli in Krishna District (Andhra Pradesh). He was so obsessed with music that he ran away and landed in Bombay when he was 14 year old. B R Chopra took him under his wings and Ramesh learnt Instrumentation and orchestration in HMV at Bombay.

He started his music career at the age of 17 years with a Marathi film ” Bhandawal Paahije “-1950, produced, Directed and acted by Kishore Sahu. After a few years he went back to Andhra and got married. He got a son also and then he came to Bombay, on his way to Calcutta. he spent 10 years there giving music to Bangla, Oriya and Nepali films.

He was invited to Madras and he gave music to Amma mata-72. He settled there with his family. He gave music in Tamil, Telugu and Kannada films. He came to Bombay from time to time to give music to Dubbed and Remade films from the South. He also gave music in a few Bhojpuri films. His Hindi films were Hamlet-54, Jay Simha-54, Piya Milan-58, Nartaki Chitra-65, Ganga Bhavani-79, Azaadi ki Oar-86,and Hum bhi kuch kam nahin-1983.

His first south film was Dampatyam-57 and last was Ish Gup chup-1993. He surpassed Salil Chaudhari by giving music in 10 Indian languages( Salil da gave music in 9 . Ramesh Naidu got the National Award for the film ‘Megh Sandesham’.

Naidu left this world on 2-9-2005, at Hyderabad.

PIYA MILAN-1958 was a story of Kings, Queens and the palace matters. The storyline was…

Maharaja Kulasekhara is the king of Kurni Empire. He has a beautiful daughter Vijaya (Vyjayanti mala), who is in love with a young rich boy, Mahinder (Shri Ram).

Maharaja Parakram Bahu of the neighbouring kingdom comes calling and before going back proposes to Vijaya. he is told that she is already engaged and this alliance is not possible.

Parakram goes back enraged. He consults his vazir, Nari and they decide to destroy Kulasekhara.

They tempt Srimantha, the commander of Kulshekar and then attack Kurni, capture the Maharaja and abduct Vijaya.

The kingdom is then given to Shrimantha. Shrimantha and his cronies torture the poor Janata and loot them.

Suddenly, a masked man called PARAMVEER appears from nowhere and protects the oppressed janata. He also punishes the cronies and Looters.

Meanwhile Parakram Bahu decided to marry Vijaya forcibly.

Getting this news, Paramveer attacks Parakram Bahu in the night ,captures him and rescues the princess Vijaya.

Then Param veer leads a mutiny and defeats Srimantha and rescues Maharaja Kulasekhara.

Finally, it is revealed that Param Veer is no one else but Mahinder ,the fiance of Vijaya.

All is well, after this.

Today’s song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar and Om Verma. I do not know anything about this singer and even after my attempts, I failed to get his information from any known source. But it does seem that this was his only song in a Hindi film. The video shows the song shot on Helen and an actor whom I could not recognise. May be he was from the south.

are chamke mor ban ke bhole man mein naache
ye paayal tori chhun chhun chhunke

ghaayal kiya man ko nigaahon ne mil ke

ghaayal kiya man ko nigaahon ne mil ke
do nigaahon ne mil ke
chup raho tum na jaana aur ko banaana
humen chhod tu sataana
chup raho tum na jaana
aur ko banaana
humen chhod tu sataana

ab dil?? aur na tadpoon
tum mere ho jaao
hum tore ho jaayen
tilla langdi koyle hoye tilla langdi koyle
are chamake mor ban ke tu bhole man me naache
ye paayal tori sun ke
tu bhole man me nache ye paayal tori sun ke

hoy hoy

haaye

bhadakti aag hoon main ??
sun bairi aag laga doon

arre haay haay haay haay
bhadkati aag hoon main ??
sun bairi aag laga doon

hoon samandar mein ari dekh main naha loon
haan aag main bujha doon
hoon samandar mein ari dekh main naha loon

ha mera dil bhi gaaye
aa gaye sama din suhaane dil sitaaron mein jhoome
aa gaye sama din suhaane dil sitaron mein jhoome

I have actively looked songs on ‘dheere dheere’ theme and have found a few good songs from 50’s decade. In this process, I found many songs which suit this theme and are already posted, apart from some famous songs which I had listed in an earlier post of this series.

Here is the list :

Song Movie
Ho dheere dheere chadh gaya nadi mein paani Aagosh
Dheere dheere bol Actress
Dheere dheere aare baadal Kismat
Dheere dheere dhal ri chanda Angulimaal
Saawan ki ghataaon dheere dheere aana Aage Badho
Mora dheere se ghoonghat hataaye piya Bharthari
Dheere dheere mohabbat jawaan ho gayi Bhai Bahan

I have searched for songs with the words ‘dheere dheere’ in the first line of the mukhda. If I found especially appealing songs with the words ‘aahista aahista’ or ‘dheeme dheeme’ or ‘haule haule’ I have included them in the series, as these terms also mean the same in spirit at least, if not the dialect. Then there are some songs with the words ‘halka halka’ also, but I have considered them so far as the words ‘halka halka’ imply ‘mildness’, diverse from ‘dheere dheere’ or ‘aahista aahistaa’.

Present post in the series is for this female solo song from Piya Milan(1958). P Ramesh Naidu, is the music director of this film and Lyricist is Harsh. Myswar is not giving singers name for this song, whereas the singer’s names are given for all other songs. Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and P. Susheela are credited with the other songs.

Three songs from ‘Piya Milan’1958 are posted :

Song Date of posting
O saathi re tu aa bhi jaa 18 June 2013
Kya kya kahoon re Kaanha 3 February 2016
Yaad aa ke hardam sataaye 24 May 2018

Here is blog tally for both P. Ramesh Naidu and Harsh :

Artist Songs in the blog
P Ramesh Naidu 5
Harsh 6

The name of the singer is not available, only thing I can say for sure is it is not Lata Mangeshkar’s voice, having heard it umpteen times for getting the lyrics right. At times it sounds a bit like Usha Mangeshkar, but it can also be P. Susheela, whose voice I don’t recognize.

The song is quite catchy, with a nice tune, though the sound quality is poor. May be Prakashchandra ji will find some audio link with better sound.


Song-Pawan chali dheere dheere phool khile re (Piya Milan) (1958) Singer-Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Harsh, MD-P Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re
haan haan
phool khile re
kaise phool khile re
bhanwar uss ko dekh
naachh uthhaa
gale mila re
lo ji
gale mila re
dil se nikle ??
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
man ka mera hai tu raajaa aa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band

man ka mera hai tu raajaa
hai mujhe tu pasand
kar loon aankhon mein band
aaj mujhe
prem milan ki hai bekhudi
aa aaa
aaj mujhe se
man man kyun hai bekhudi
dil mein rehna sanam
dil mein rehna sanam
o ji o
de qasam
? ?
Pawan chali
dheere dheere
phool khile re

“Piya Milan” (1958) was directed by Raghunath for R R Productions Madras. This movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Raja Sulochana, M N Rajam, Helen, Reeta, Shreeram, V Nagiah, T S Baliah,P S Veerappa, Thangavelu, Chandrababu, T K Ramchandran, G A K Dewar etc in it.

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

Here is the third song from “Piya Milan” (1958) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Lata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by P Ramesh Naidu.

The link of the song shows this song being picturised on Vyjyanti Mala. The picturisation somehow does not appear synchronised with the song. I wonder if the audio of the song is superimposed on video of some other song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on this matter.

I have not been able to get the lyrics right to my satisfaction at a few places. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.

Song-Yaad aa ke hardam sataaye (Piya Milan)(1958) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-P Ramesh Naidu

Lyrics

yaad aa ke hardam sataaye
aaj taqdeer bhi luti hongi
aa re
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye

lo ham unke armaan liye
lo ham unke armaan liye
vo kyun hardam khayaalon mein hain
o birha ka sangam tadpaaye hamen
birha ka sangam tadpaaye hamen
ae dil kyun tum hairaan ho
tumhi bol do
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye

matwaala rangeela phool ye
pal bhar mein manva ko chheen le
matwaala rangeela phool ye
pal bhar mein manva ko chheen le
udaas wo kar daale
udaas wo kar daale
vo door se maare
??
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye
aaj taqdeer bhi luti hongi
aa re
yaad aa ke hardam sataaye
