“Bijli”(1950) was directed by Sushil Sahu for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana, Ramesh Gupta, Sitara, Vilas Mohbe, Paro, Badri Prasd, Sushir Sahu, Amirbai Karnataki, Satya Narayan, Narbada Shankar, C L Shah, Kanta, Kazmi etc in it.

This movie had eight songs in it that were sung by five singers. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Today (10 august 2017) is the 67th remembrance day of Khemchand Prakash ( 12 december 1907- 10 august 1950). On this occasion, here is a song from “Bijli”(1950).

This song is sung by two female singers. HFKG mentions them as Geeta Roy and Paro, whereas the uploader of the song mentions them as Shamshad Begam and Paro. But I think that the voices in the song are of two singers who are not Geeta Roy (alater Dutt), Shamshad Begam or Paro devi, three singers whose voices are quite distinctive and different from the voices in the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify this voices that sound familiar.

PS-Now Sudhir Jee has fished out a clearer version of this song from his collection. There the voices are very clear and they unmistakably belong to Paro and Geeta Roy. I thank Sudhir Jee for helping clarify matters.

Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khemchand Prakash. This is and lovely song which sounds like a stage performance song where a city slicker lady complains that she is uncomfortable in the village of her beue and she asks him to take her to Bombay. Very cute and justifiable feelings that most people can readily identify with. I too used to groan like this when I found myself going to my native place (a village) during my younger days. 🙂


Song-O mora jiya ghabraaye tere chhote se gaaon mein(Bijli)(1950) Singers-Paro Devi, Geeta Dutt, Lyrics-Bharat Vyas, Khemchand Prakash

Lyrics

mora jiya ghabraaye
uf mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de
na na na na na na
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

tere is chhote se gaanv mein
na motor na rail
ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi mein
kaatoon jeewan jail
balam is jail se chhuda de
balam is jail se chhuda de
dhuaan gaadi pe baitha de
chhuk chhuk chhuk chhuk pahuncha de
o mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

na na na
are wahaan dhaan par ration gori
kapdon par control
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
kamron par pagdi ka ragda
paani bikta mol
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
wahaan ke log hain rangeele
chup chhail chhabeele
tera bhola jiya bharma den
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

arre ae
kya likhi karam ki rekha aa
haaye
ab tak na saneema dekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
kaisa thha saawan aaya re
kaisi thhi chandralekha
ab tak na saneema dekha
o mere laadle balam
tohe raam ki kasam
chaupaati ki chaat khila de
haaye mora jiya ghabraaye
tere chhote se gaanv mein
bambai ki sair kara de
balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

ghaas phoos ki jhonpdi meri
jamuna jee ke kinaare
chaand aur sooraj aur ye sitaare
jiske aage bambai tera
pada pada jhak maare
ho gori ye chaandni raaten
aur pyaar ki baaten
zara ghoonghat ki oat muska de
ho mera kaha maan
mat kar gumaan
gori bambai ki baat bhula de

balam mohe bambai shahar dikha de

Behzad Lucknowi was one of many Urdu poets who entered Hindi film industry in the 1930s. However, in my view, he was also one of the least visible poet-lyricists among those who had spent over a decade in the Hindi film industry in the 1930s and 1940s. Some of his high quality ghazals like zinda hoon iss tarah ki gham-e-zindagi nahin, tumhaare bulaane ko jee chaahta hai, rehne laga hai dil mein andhera tere baghair are still remembered today. Most listeners of these ghazals would identify these songs with Mukesh, Lata Mangeshkar and Begum Akhtar, respectively, as it so often happens in case of popular Hindi film songs.

I am aware that Begum Para and Paro Devi are two different actresses. There is no same name confusion. Yet momentarily, I tend to get confused with the names of these two actresses. If someone to ask me as to which one of these two actresses was in the film ‘Neel Kamal’ (1947), I may have to think for a while before giving the correct answer, that is Begum Para.

Though I would like to be more systematic in discussing the songs in the blog, I have not been able to put my intentions to practice. One of my aims these days is to discuss a song of 1930s every day in a bid to cover all the available songs of 1930s. Another aim is to cover all the songs of movies. Yet another aim is to ensure that songs from movies as yet unrepresented in the blog are discussed in the blog. Then there are artists nearing their landmarks or artists having their anniversaries and so their songs must be discussed.

Today (1 october 2015) is the 109th birth anniversary of S D Burman (1 October 1906 – 31 October 1975).

SD Burman was a well established and well respected music director by the time I became aware of his name (sometime in late 1960s). But like everyone else, he too made his debut sometime. It is difficult to imagine it today, but his earlier career was full of struggles and his career as a music director in Hindi movies was almost a non starter. He was given his initial breaks in 1940s by Sasadhar Mukherjee of Filmistan who signed him up for “Aath Din”(1946) and “Shikaari”(1946). The music of these two movies did not create much impression at that time. It was his next movie with Filmistan,namely “Do Bhai”(1947) that helped SD Burman get some foothold in the industry. He kept scoring music for the subsequent movies of Filmistan.
