“Raakhi” (1962) was produced by Siva H Ganeshan and it directed by a Bhimsingh for Prabhuram Pictures, Madras. The movie had Ashok Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Pradeep Kumar, Mehmood, Ameeta, Malika, Lalita Pawar, Raj Mehra, Randhir, Madan Puri, Shivraj, Mohan Choti, Umesh Sharma etc in it.

This movie had one theme song dedicated to the festival of Rakhi. But other songs of the movie were more or less wedding related songs. So “Shaadi” could have been as good a title as any for this movie. 🙂 One movie of this titles was actually made that year, so may be the makers of this movie were forced to use an alternative title. 🙂

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details.

Blog Day : 3500 Post No. : 14061

Today is Friday, 16 february 2018. It is just another day. But trust us to find something remarkable even out of seemingly routine matters. Today is a special day for the blog. It is the 3500th day for the blog.

It follows that the blog has seen 34 such occasions in the past as well. But we took notice of such kind of centuries for the first time only last year on 8 november 2017 when it was the 3400th day for the blog.

A quick mental calculation would show that there are 365 days in a year and so ten years have 3650 days (decimal system zindabaad ! 🙂 ). Add two additional days for two leap years. So the blog will turn one decade old or 3652 days old in another 152 days from now, on 19 july 2018 !

Another quick mental calculation would reveal that 3500 x 4= 14000. The blog has 14060 songs posts as of now. So it turns out that the blog is going on at a strike rate of just over four songs a day for 3500 days !

When a blog lasts this long and adds so many articles to it, then one is able to reel off quite a few statistics associated with it. I find that the blog by now has songs from as many as 3835 movies. As many as 1080 of these movies have already been YIPPEED ! So we no longer need to search for any additional songs for these 1080 movies because all of them have already been accounted for.

In the process of discussing songs, many artists have completed their own milestones in the blog. 35 music directors, 28 lyricists and 21 singers have more than one hundred songs each in the blog. Some of them in fact have their songs running into thousands in the blog.

There are a few artists who have almost all their songs covered in the blog. All available songs of K L Saigal, Suraiyya and Sajjad Hussain are showcased in the blog. Artists like Naushad, O P Nayyar, S D Burman, Madan Mohan, Talat Mehmood etc have less than 100 songs each left to be covered in the blog.

The blog is a great example of the power of online collaboration of likeminded individuals. All these individuals are making valuable contributions through their articles, lyrics, comments, suggestions etc. Some of these contributors have completed their own centuries in the blog.

The kind of skill sets that our contributors possess for the cause of HFM can be the envy of many professional set ups. We have contributors who are like research scholars and their original researches in the field of HFM have helped add to the information in the field of HFM.

The thing that pleases me most is the fact that we all feel like a group of people close to each other. Some of us have actually met each other and continue to meet each other from time to time. We have got to know each other quite closely and we often share in the joys and sorrow of each other.

I have a feeling that what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg as far as our work in the field of HFM is concerned. The real extent of the iceberg has not yet been revealed. Lots of valuable background information and statistics pertaining to HFM have been collected during this nearly one decade long journey and that information has not yet appeared in the blog.

On the occasion of the blog touching 3500 days, here is a joie de vivre genre of song from “Shatranj” (1956). This song, the sixth out of eight songs from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

The song is picturised as a dance song on Sheila Vaz and others. The lead pair of Ashok Kumar and Meena Kumari are also visible in the picturisatoon as spectators.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra. He points out that one line in the audio version differs from the video version. Trust Prakashchandra to be able to differentiate between such fine details. 🙂

This archtypically melodramatic movie had one theme song dedicated to the festival of Rakhi, but other songs from the movie were apparently all wedding songs of different nature- viz from the point of view of the bride, from the point of view of the sister in law etc.

Here is the “baabul ka chhootna” genre of wedding song from “Raakhi” (1962). The song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricidt. Music is composed by Ravi. This lyricist-Music director duo have given us several great wedding songs, and this song is one of them.

The song is picturised as a background bidaai song as Waheeda Rehman, after being married off to Pradeep Kumar is deparing in a doli, looked on by Ashok Kumar, playing dulhan ka bhai.


Song-Baabul chhoot chala tera angna (Raakhi)(1962) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
haath huye kya peele mere
ho gayi main to paraayi
shahnaayi ki goonj mein kho gayi
baabul meri duhaayi
dil bhi mera tab tab dhadke
jab jab khanke kangna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
jis angna mein bhaiyya ke sang
bachpan mera khela
us angna mein aaj khada hai
bhaiyya mera akela
jaagti aankhon dekh raha hai
mere sukh ka sapna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
le ke chali tan saja sajaaya
chhod chali man apna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna
Baabul chhoot chala tera angna

Song-Zindagi ki raahon mein…main akela jaa raha thha (Gauri)(1968) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Ravi

zindagi ki raahon mein
maut muskuraati hai
jaagne ki koshish mein
neend aayi jaati hai

Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan
Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan

pyaar maanga
pyaar paaya
do ghadi ke waaste
uljhanon ka haar pehna
dosti ke waaste
na main apna ban saka
aur na kisi ka ho saka
hai ajab meri daastaan
hai ajab meri daastaan
Main akela jaa raha thha
kya khabar thhi mere peechhe
hai ghamon ka kaarwaan

farz ka ye zahar kab tak
ae zamaane main piyoon
bebasi ki qaid mein
ae zindagi kaise jiyoon
aasmaan begaana thhahra
aur zameen bhi ajnabi
aur zameen bhi ajnabi
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan
kaun hai mera yahaan

Today, 23rd January 2018 is the 121st Birth Anniversary of India’s best known revolutionary- Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. His life story and name is known to every Indian. It is not only very inspiring, but is very motivating as well. Unfortunately Netaji did not get the kind of help or support he needed and deserved for his Military action, from Indian politicians of his times. Netaji’s philosophy clashed with the Non-Violence policy espoused by Gandhi and his Congress Party. He pursued his dream single handedly. It is once in a Century that such a person is born. My respectful obeisance to Netaji.

On this occasion, here is a song describing his life which was nothing but a life of Balidaan or sacrifice.

Today’s song is from film Samadhi-1950. With this song, I remember and pay my respects to Music Director C.Ramchandra, in his Centenary Year.

Indian film industry is notably poor in making Patriotic films. Agreed that the first 16 years of the Talkie in India were not suitable or encouraging for making such films, as India was under British rule. But now, after 70+ years of ibdependence, the number of such films can be counted on the fingers of just one hand. Historical films have suffered the same fate. Our Historical films are based on some fictitious love stories and the history part is limited only to the costumes and Horses,Elephants etc.

No doubt, some film makers did make films based on Patriotic themes, almost immediately after independence or in the first few years after that. Songs with Patriotic themes were also used in few films. Films like Apna Desh-49,Samadhi-50, Pehla Admi-50, Andolan-51 and Anand Math-52 are some such examples, but these are only a few among the heap of song and comedy films that were being produced.Sporadic films like Jagriti-54, Chhatrapati Shivaji (52,61 and 2007) and some films of Manoj Kumar were made combining Patriotic themes in later years. As for “Historical” made those days- Mughal e Azam, Anarkali or Taj Mahal were more of Love story films than Historical films.

On this background, making a film like Samadhi was actually a risk. But this risk was offset by planting a Love story and some foot tapping songs and dances. In this, C.Ramchandra’s contribution was extremely important. The evergreen song ” Gore gore, o banke chhore” by Lata and Amirbai and few more lilting songs by Lata and Shamshad Begum made the film a memorable musical extravaganza. However, care was taken that the Patriotic theme of the movie was not compromised.

It was said that Samadhi’s story was based on a True Life story. The film was directed by Ramesh Saigal (2-3-1918 to 20-1-1980), who directed only 10 films in his career, but what some of his films were ! Shaheed-48, Samadhi-50, Shikast-53, Railway Platform-55 and Phir subah hogi-58 can not be forgotten. Film Samadhi had all the elements in it that make a movie successful. Moreover the film had the background of Indian National Army, led by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, who was loved by people of India. These factors made the film a grand success at the Box Office. By one estimate, film Samadhi-50 was the highest earner on Box Office in 1950. It reportedly made a gross collection of Rs.1,35,00,000 and a net profit of Rs. 75,00,000 (wiki).

The film cast was Ashok Kumar, Nalini Jaywant, Shyam, Mubarak, David, Badri Prashad, Shashi Kapoor Sr., Collins Paul etc etc.

Ashok Kumar and Nalini Jaywant came together for the first time with this film. They then went on to do 11 films together from 1950 to 1966. Together, they even went abroad for shooting of the film Naaz-54 . Their mutual attraction was well known in the industry. But later they parted ways and though their Bungalows in Union Park, Chembur, Bombay were opposite to each others, they did not even exchange greetings.

Actor Shyam (20-2-1920 to 15-4-1951), who was a popular Hero those days, did the role of Ashok Kumar’s elder brother despite being almost 10 years younger to Ashok Kumar. His height and good physique enabled him to look quite convincing as the elder brother of Ashok Kumar.

Shashi Kapoor Sr.(Shashi Chand Kapoor) did the role of young Ashok Kumar. It is interesting to note that the other Shashi kapoor Jr. ( Raj kapoor’s brother) did the young Ashok kumar’s role in film Sangram-50 in the same year

It is also interesting to note that Netaji’s role in this film was done by an actor named Collins. He was like an O.T.P.- never seen again in any film.

The story of this film was given by me earlier for some other post from this film, so I am not repeating it here. Baburao Patel of ” Film India”, wrote in its May-50 issue that the film was ” irrelevant and obsolete politically, since India had got its freedom now.” However the audience and the readers of his magazine did not agree to his comments and made this film a tremendous success. It goes to prove that Patriotic themes are never irrelevant.

Film Samadhi-50 had 7 songs. 5 songs were already discussed on the Blog. Let us enjoy the song by C.Ramchandra, describing Netaji’s life story in essence.

Ed note:- One song is now left to be covered. This balance song is “Sab mil kar Hind pukaaren” according to HFGK whose record was not made and this song is apparently not available.


Song-Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani (Samadhi)(1950) Singer-C Ramchandra, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra
Nalini Jaiwant
Female chorus
Male chorus
All chorus

Lyrics

ho o o o
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidan ki ek kahaani
balidaan hi balidaan hai
bachpan aur jawaani
bachpan aur jaawani
balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani

hoye bachpan hi se chanchal man mein armaanon ka mela thha
chhoti si ek lehar thhi dil mein
toofaanon ka rela thha
college mein ustaad jo thha wo thha london ka gora
arre usne kaha college me ek din
hindi kaala log chhichhora

sher bose ka khoon jo khaula
sher bose ka khoon jo khaula
gore ko ik chapat lagai
naam kata college se lekin
hind ki laaj bachaai
Netaji ka jeewan hai balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan hi balidaan hai bachpan aur jawaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani
balidaan ki ek kahaani

maat pita ne samjhaaya
aur englishtan ko kiya ravaana
badon ke aage honth na khole
lekin baagi dil na maana
europe mein ICS ke imtihaan ko paas kiya
arre itna ooncha ohda paakar
deshbakht ne chhod diya
phir
hindsutan mein aakar pehle gaandhi ko parnaam kiya
gaandhi ko parnaam kiya
gaandhi ko parnaam kiya

wo desh ki seva ka baapu se pehla pehla sabak liya
pehla pehla sabak liya
pehla pehla sabak liya

bharat ke dukh dard ko socha samjha aur pehchaana
kamar baandh kar rann mein aaya
aazaadi ka deewaana
aazaadi ka deewaana
aazaadi ka deewaana

kiya angrezon ne ye aid
karen is baagi ko ab qaid
kuchal daalen
masal daalen
kuchal daalen
masal daalen

magar
bachpan se jo baagi ho
wo zulm se darna kya jaane
jalne se kab ghabraate hain
shama watan ke parwaane
jiski rag rag mein shole hon
wo kya samjhe chingaari ko
hathkadiyon ko
zanjeeron ko
jailon ki chaar deewaari ko
kadam kadam par mushqil aayi
lekin sher sada lalkaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
Hidustan hamaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
hidustan hamaara
rah nahin sakta gair ke bas mein
hidustan hamaara

sarkaar ne kar daali nazarband zabaanband
maidaan ke jo mard hain hote hai kahaan band
ek raat ko chupke hi se gum ho gaye Neta
shor hua subah kahaan kho gaye Neta
janta bhi thhi hairaan
to sarkaar bhi hairaan
ud jaane se bulbul ke thha saiyyaad pareshan

lekin
maata ko ye ummeed thhi
laut aayega beta
maata se kahe bina kahaan jaayega beta
is aas mein darwaaje bhi ghar ke na kiya band
aa jaayega
aa jaayega
wo laal wo farjan

us maa se badi maa hai jo hindustan hai
wo chodd gaya maa ko
badi maa ko chudaane
is hind ki bigdi hui taqdeer banaane

badal pathaani bhesh
chala pardes
chhod kar desh
hamaara neta
badal pathaani bhesh
chala pardes
chhod kar desh
hamaara neta
aazadi ki nayi ladaai
ladne pyaaara neta

hindustan se kabul mein
aur kabul se berlin mein
chalte chalte pahunch gaya
wo singapore ke rann mein
qaum ki ye fauj aur qaumi taraana ban gaya
qaum ki ye fauj aur qaumi taraana ban gaya

ek ek tinka chuna
aur aashiyaana ban gaya
jai gandhi jai subhash
jai gandhi jai subhash
jai hind jai hind
jai hind jai hind
jai hind jai hind

Today’s song is from film Jailor-1958. This film from Minerva Movietone was a remake of its own film of the same name, made in 1938. This is a psychological melodrama, describing how a perfectly normal person becomes a bad one and due to circumstances becomes good again. There are shadows of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in this film.

Robert Louise Stevenson’s novel of 1886, ” The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ” was first made into a silent film in 1920, followed by a Talkie films in 1931, 1941, and as recent as 2006, in Hollywood. The 1931 film must have obviously inspired the writers of this film in 1938- Kamaal Amrohi and Ameer Haider. The screenplay was by J.K.Nanda and music was composed by Mir Saheb.

For the 1958 edition, the writers’ team continued, wih addition of O.P.Dutta for new dialogues. Madan Mohan composed its music. Sohrab Modi, of course, was the Director and the Hero in both editions of the film. Now he was joined by Kamini Kaushal, Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Rajkumar khatri etc etc.

The film was not received with enthusisam. The role of Sohrab Modi, as the Jailor was not at all accepted by the audience. The role left many questions unanswered- like whether such changes can occur in a person at all or how can someone go to such extreme cruelty etc. Afterall it was a movie. Sohrab Modi excelled in Historical films. Social or family dramas were not a cup of his tea, was established by this film. It is still a wonder, why Modi chose this film for a remake over his many other successful films, for example Pukar-1939 ?

Madan Mohan’s sweet music was a redeeming factor and it did soothe the nerves of the audience after seeing Modi’s performance in this film. The story of the film was….

Dilip (Sohrab Modi) is a good natured kind hearted Jailor. He has a good looking wife Kanwal (Kamini Kaushal) and a doting girl child- Bali (Daisy Irani). Kanwal likes to enjoy modern life , like attending clubs etc, which Dilip does not like. Kanwal does not like her husband. She contacts her ex-lover Dr. Ramesh and both elope. She is not worried about her child also. This shock changes the life of Dilip and he becomes cruel, hot tempered and a nasty person, as if to avenge the world for what happened to him.

Kanwal and her lover meet with an accident. Ramesh loses his sight and Kanwal’s face is badly injured. When Dilip learns about her accident, he brings a repentant Kanwal back home. However he locks her in a room and tortures her, taunts her and tries to take revenge She is not allowed to meet her daughter, who is told that her mother has died. Once the daughter Bali falls sick, but Dilip does not allow Kanwal to tend her daughter also. frustrated and sad Kanwal commits suicide. Due to illness the daughter also dies.

This is another shock for Dilip, but it changes him to his old good nature. he becomes more kind, loving and helpful to others. one of his ex-convicts Prem (Rajkumar Khatri) kills the village rowdy when he tries to trouble his blind sister Chhaya(Geeta Bali) In the jail, Prem requests Dilip to look after his sister. Dilip meets and helps her. He starts loving Chhaaya. Unknown to him , Dr. Ramesh, now blind, comes to the same temple in which Chhaaya lives. they get to know each others and develop love.

When Dilip comes to know about their love, he spends his savings and helps both blind people to get operated upon. They regain sight. Dilip ensures that they are united.

Rajkumar Khatri who had been famous for his roles in Dharmik films so far did a role of a murderer, contrary to his background. This too did not go too well with the audience. Today’s song is actually a combination of contrasting songs. There is a dance by a dance troupe just outside the temple. While the dancer is dancing, singing and luring the public, Dr.Ramesh comes there, singing a Bhajan. Slowly people get attracted to him. After some time all the public, including the dance troupers join Ramesh in his Bhajan and all enter the temple. Now, enjoy this Two- in- one offering…….

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13928

The New Year according to Gregorian Calendar started 16 days ago on 1 january 2018. Like most people, we too made new year resolutions. Unlike most people, our new year resolutions of posting one “debutant” song and one “YIPPEE” song daily is still being followed regularly.

Day before yesterday (14 january 2018) was Makar Sakranti and that marked the beginning of another new year, viz Hindu new year. Why we should not make new year resolutions on this occasion as well. In our case, we can resolve to continue our new year resolutions of Gregorian calendar new year. 🙂

The commencement of Hindu new year coincided with the blog clocking one crore (ten millions) visitors to the blog. Is it a coincidence that it happened on this day ! Or is it divine scheme of things. The blog began just under ten years ago on 19 july 2008. Why this date and no other day ? It was much later (in fact only in 2017) that I realised that the Hindu month of Shrawan had started on 19 july 2008, which traditionally provided the most number of songs to HFM. So, I feel that the same divine scheme of things were being played out and implemented at that time as well.

That is not all. Much later, we posted out song post number 11111, which discussed a special song that had voices of four legendary singers. When Sudhir Ji, the author of that wrteup looked back at the blog posts number 1, 11, 111 and 1111, he discovered an amazing pattern. These four songs were solo songs sung by the same four singers, and in the same order in which they lend their voices in the song post number 11111 !

That is not all. I have noticed coincidences involving me that are even more amazing, and they are not limited to this blog. I have shared one amazing coincidence with my friends (including some in this blog as well) that will convince people that these coincidences are some grander scheme of things planned by higher forces. 🙂

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

The song that I have in mind is from “Khazaana”(1951). It is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

This song, the eighth and final song from “Khazaana”(1951) is a “joie de vivre” song sung on a moonlit night by a lady in love. This must have been the brief by the music director to the lyricist and what superb lyrics Rajinder Krishan comes up with. And the rendering of this song is divine. After listening to the honey like voice of Lata, I would not like to listen to this voice in any other voice. This is inspired singing at its peak.

“Khazaana”(1951) was produced by Bakshi Jang Bahadur and directed by M Sadiq for Bakshi Brothers, Bombay. This movie had Madhubala, Nasir Khan, Gope, Om Prakash, Cuckoo, Ramesh Thakur, Gujri, Abbas etc. in it.

So going by the cast, it is clear that this song was picturised on Madhubala. Lata singing and Madhubala lip syncing. It would have been a sight for the eyes if the video was available. But it seems that only the audio of this song is available and that too has ended up becoming an obscure song with time. The song deserves to be much better known among music lovers. It is an archtypical “chhaayaageet” song, best heard at night time, with majority of people fast asleep in the comforts of their “razaai”. 🙂

With this song, “Khazaana”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

In Hindi movies,a typical “expression of love” genre of song finds the gentleman praising the lady in poetic terms, viz comparing her eyes with lake, her talk with clinging of bells (or koyal ki kook) etc. But when the gentleman in question is someone like Johny Walker then one may well find the lady being likened with items that are more mundane and more common place. Here is a Johny Walker song where lady’s eyes are compared with “omlette” and her talk with “chocolate”. The lady herself is compared to a mango fruit that has freshly fallen from its branch. 🙂

This fun song is from “Ghar Basa Ke Dekho”(1963). This movie was directed by Kishore Sahu for Ratnadeep Pictures, Bombay. This “social” movie had Manoj Kumar, Savitri, Rajshree, Sudesh Kumar, Mehmood, Shyama, Johny Walker, Minu Mumtaz, Lalita Pawar, Leela Mishra, Randheer, Shivraj, Uma Khosla, Narmada Shankar, Champak Lala etc in it.

The song is the fifth (out of six) to figure in the blog. It is sung by Rafi. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta. The song is picturised on Johny Walker and Minu Mumtaz.


Song-Ye ras teri baaton ka chocolate(Ghar Basa Ke Dekho)(1963) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Chitragupta

“Duniya Gol Hai”(1955) was produced by C Ramchnadra and directed by Om Prakash for New Sai Productions, Bombay. This “social” movie had Anita Guha, Karan Dewan, Kuldeep Kaur, Indu Pal, Shyam Lal, Kumud Tripathi, Nisar Khandwi, Som Dutt, Hafiz, Kanwar Kesho, Pal Sharma, Sundar, Om Prakash etc with lots of guest appearances viz.Jairaj, Heeralal, Randheer, Madan Puri, Raj Mehra, Maruti, Johny Walker, Nadira, Shashikala, Shammi, Roopmala, Smriti Biswas, Begam Para etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Two of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the third song from “Duniya Gol Hai”(1955). This song is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

Only the audio of this song is available. The voice of Lata was there in every song of the movie (except one song where details of singers are not known). so she may have sung for the leading lady of the movie or for any other ladies in the movie. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Shabnam se aaj shola..ae dard e mohabbat naache ja (Duniya Gol Hai)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics

shabnam se aaj shola
maange hai ye zamaana
laaun kahaan se ae dil
marne ka wo bahaana
duniya ne ye na socha
naachegi laash kaise
duniya ne ye na socha
naachegi laash kaise
ye meri bezubaani
chhedegi kya taraana

naache ja
naache ja
naache ja
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi
duniya to khushi se dekhegi
duniya to khushi se dekhegi
berang teri tasveer sahi
berang teri tasveer sahi

bedard hai ye mehfil waale
bismil ka tamaasha dekhenge
jis dil mein lahoo ka naam nahin
us dil ka tamaasha dekhenge
ro ro ke hansaana duniya ko
ro ro ke hansaana duniya ko
ulfat ki yahi taqdeer sahi
ulfat ki yahi taqdeer sahi
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi

naache ja
naache ja
naache ja
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
kadmon mein tere zanzeer sahi
kadmon mein tere zanzeer sahi

majboori ae dil kuchh der sambhal
mehfil ko zara bharmaane de
bikhrenge na ye baadal kab tak
sooraj ka ishaara aane de
ummeed ka daaman kyun chhoote
ummeed ka daaman kyun chhoote
beraham teri taqdeer sahi
beraham teri taqdeer sahi
ae dard-e-mohabbat naache ja
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi
kadmon mein tere zanjeer sahi

“Kaale Baadal”(1950) was directed by Anand Thakur for National Film of India production. The movie had Meena, Pushpa Hans, Shyam, Gope, Jeevan, Raj Mehra, Ramesh Sinha, Tabassum, Hansa, M. Rajan, Pratima Devi etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the past.

The ninth song from the movie is, not surprisingly, a rare song.

Here is this ninth and final song from “Kaale Baadal”(1950) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shyam Sundar.

Only the audio of this rare song is available. The song sounds like a qawwaali, though only three minutes long. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Kaale Baadal”(1950) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
