Song-Gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na (Ghoonghat)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se
haan hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

aaj tu kaahe ko sharmaati hai
ye ghadi roz nahin aati hai
aane waale hain piya milne ko
phool hain dil ke tere khilne ko
tujhko rasiya ki nazar lootegi lootegi
aaj nainon ki sharam tootegi
kaahe tere ye nain
tera dil hai bechain
sakhi hamse yoon daaman chhudaao na
ye to milne milaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein
ai ai o
gori ghoonghat mein
mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai

aaj ki raat zara chup rahna
dil ki baaten na balam se kahna
wo agar chheden to bal kha jaana
unki baaton mein na tu aa jaana
mard ki zaat ko tu kya jaane
kya jaane
bade chaalaak hain ye deewaane
kabhi painyya padenge kabhi vinti karenge
un se kahna ke jaao sataao na
arre ye to nakhre dikhaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein haaye daiyya
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

Hullo Atuldom

The favourite singer of millions of Indian Mohammed Rafi was born on 24th December 1924. That means we, his fans, would have been celebrating his 97th birthday this year. But that was not to be. He just left this mortal world in July 1980 at the age of 55.

But we, his fans, need not be sad as he has left us a library full of music albums-both filmy and non-filmy. There will be many who will pay tributes to this great soul- the soft-spoken, gentle, kindhearted giant with their own personal touch. There will be programs across the various entertainment platforms that would highlight the music that Rafi saab was associated with.

For me, the day begins by listening to the Radio- Radio Ceylon to be exact- and figuring out which of the songs that are played there I have heard, and which I have never heard. Then I may move on to listening to other Radio stations.

Small Trivia:- Just found that Radio Ceylon is a year younger than Rafisaab. The precursor to Radio Ceylon- Colombo Radio – was formally launched on 16th December 1925.

I am sure we will be treated to the regular fare of Rafi hits like ‘o duniya ke rakhwaale’; ‘sukh ke sab saathi’; and possibly ‘ta ra ri ara ri ra ra ri’; ‘yeh chaand sa roshan chehera’; ‘pardesiyon se na ankhiyan milana,’ etc and a few more soulful numbers. We may also get a dose of his popular songs from the 70s like ‘o meri mehbooba, mehbooba mehbooba’, ‘kya hua tera wada’ etc. In between some channel will also squeeze in a ‘meri awaaz suno’; ‘dil ka soona saaz tarana dhoondega’; and some of his other great songs.

Additionally, we will have forwards from friends on WhatsApp and Facebook (the new age social platforms) that will give us links to sites that speak of the greatness of the Soul that Mohd. Rafi was.

Here is my tiny attempt to bring on-stage a song that was sung by the great Mohd Rafi under the baton of Ravi. It is a rarely heard song that was written by Verma Malik. It is from the 1977 release “Aadmi Sadak Ka”. Only one song from this film has been discussed on the blog so far and that was the most famous song of the movie viz. Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai. this was in 2013, eight years ago.

Today’s song features Zaheera, Shatrughan Sinha, Vikram (who was born Moin Uddin Shah), Sujit Kumar and Deven Verma. We see that Zaheera, Shatru and Vikram are in disguise.

‘Aadmi Sadak Ka’ was a produced and directed by Devendra Goel. It was a bilingual- made in Hindi and Marathi (called ‘Dost Asava Tar Asa’). It was the story of a well-placed family that has three sons (two of whom are married) and a daughter. The family falls into hard times when the patriarch dies, the family fortunes are usurped by the older two sons, at the behest of their wives, and the mother and the younger siblings are shown the door. The youngest son Chander (Vikram) takes up a job as a waiter and due to his good conduct keeps getting promoted and also becomes co-owner of the hotel. Now he is in competition with his older brothers and after the usual twists and turns the family is reunited and that brings the movie to ‘The End’.

With this post we also remember Deven Verma whose death anniversary was on 2nd December. He was born in Pune to Rajasthani father and Kutchi mother. He was son-in-law of Ashok Kumar, his wife was Rupa. He was a multi-talented actor who was appreciated in comic roles, but when I saw “Devar” (1966) I was stumped by the serious character he played. Devendu Verma (birth name of Deven Verma) died of a heart attack and kidney failure in 2014.
Here is the song with Anuradha Paudwal and Deven Verma singing with Mohd. Rafi.

This movie had Bharat Bhushan, Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Asha Parekh, Leela Chitnis, Rajendranath, Rehman, Agha etc. This was a Madrasi style movie, but curiously enough, its story was inspired from a Bangla story.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a marriage ritual song. The song is lip synced by Bina Rai who plays the silently sacrificing lady, a character that was the cornerstone of Hindi movies of these days.

The bride is played by a very young Asha Parekh.

This is the tale of a Hindi film director whose first film he wrote and directed, became a super hit. Unfortunately, he also reached the pinnacle of his career as a director with his very first film. The reason was that none of his subsequent films could achieve the same scale of successes as was with his first film. He was associated with Hindi films as a director for nearly 3 decades, but he directed only 6 films. During the same period, he also produced 3 films. His name was Ram Krishna Nayyar, better known in Hindi film industry as R K Nayyar. In my view, he was a director whose expertise was in directing films in the genre of romantic mystery thriller.

Not much information is known about R K Nayyar’s early life. He started his filmi career as an assistant to Raj Kapoor in ‘Aah’ (1953) and to Prakash Arora in ‘Boot Polish’ (1954). He made his debut as a director in Sashadhar Mukerji’s ‘Love in Simla’ (1960). The film became super hit at the box office with debutant lead actors, Joy Mukerji and Sadhana. It is said that R K Nayyar was instrumental in suggesting the fringe hair style which Sadhana used in this film to hide her broad forehead. Her hairstyle became so popular that it became known as ‘Sadhana Cut’.

R K Nayyar’s next directorial venture came after a gap of 3 years in ‘Ye Raasten Hain Pyaar Ke’ (1963). This film was based on the famous Nanavati-Ahuja case of 1959. But the film was only moderately successful. He next directed Sashadhar Mukerji’s ‘Aao Pyaar Karen’ (1964) with Joy Mukerji and Saira Bano in the lead roles. The film did not click on the box office despite having a good musical score by Usha Khanna.

In 1966, R K Nayyar married Sadhana. In the same year, he released his first film as a producer-director, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966) under his own banner, R K Nayyar Films. It was a high budget film with a major part of shooting taking place in Europe. The film did not fare well on the box office front.

Once again after a gap of 3 years, R K Nayyar directed ‘Intaqaam’ (1969) which was produced under the banner of Shaktiman Enterprises with Sadhana and Sanjay Khan in the lead roles. It was a ‘come back’ film for Sadhana after she had some medical issues. ‘Intaqaam’ (1969) was a hit film which should have revived the career of R K Nayyar. But it took him as long as 17 years to direct his next film. ‘Qatl’ (1986) which he also produced. It was his last film as a director. After this, he produced his last film. ‘Pati Parmeshwar’(1989) under R K Nayyar banner but entrusted Madan Joshi, his assistant to direct the film. Both these films flopped at the box office.

I was wondering as to why R K Nayyar had gaps in his filmi career. I got the answer from a rare interview which Sadhana had given sometime in 2012. R K Nayyar had lost a lot of money when his films. ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966), ‘Qatl’ (1986) and ‘Pati Parmeshwar’ (1989) flopped at the box office. Loans were to be repaid. Sadhana had almost withdrawn from the films after her persistent medical issues. All these put R K Nayyar in financial crunches affecting his own health. He had become an asthma patient which later became the reason for his death in 1995.

As mentioned earlier, ‘Ye Zindagi Kitni Haseen Hai’ (1966) was R K Nayyar’s first film as a producer-director under his own banner, R K Nayyar Films. The star cast included Ashok Kumar, Joy Mukerji, Saira Bano, Motilal, Sayeeda Khan, Hari Shivdasani, Badri Prasad, Mohshin Abdullah, Janakidas, Manmohan etc. The film was a romantic thriller with some good songs. But the film failed to sustain audience’s interest to make it a box office hit film. It is said that the film’s complicated plot with Saira Bano playing the double role with the same name and Joy Mukerji playing imposter confused the average cinema audience.

The film had 7 songs (including one multiple version) of which 4 songs (including one multiple version) have been covered on the Blog. All the songs are written by Rajinder Krishan and set to music by Ravi.

I am presenting the 5th song, ‘nange baazoo nangi taange husn ka ye meyyar nahi’ from the film to appear on the Blog which is sung by Mohammed Rafi. It is picturised on Joy Mukerji when he and Saira Bano are on a visit to Paris for participating in Mr Universe and Miss Universe, respectively.

I was not aware of this song until I heard this song a couple of days back. What invited my attention to this song was the unusual mukhda for a Hindi film song. There are other unusual features of the song:

In the film sound track version, the song starts with antara, ‘tera badan hai raaj khuda kaa’ followed by mukhda, ‘nange baazoo nangi taange’ as a refrain. This is because Joy Mukerji responds in song when Saira Bano says –“kya main ladki nahi hoon?, kya main haseen nahi hoon?” Furthermore, there are 4 antaras in the film sound track version of the song. In the record version, the song starts with mukhda followed by only two antaras – 1st and 4th of the film sound track song probably to accommodate the song within the space of a 78 RPM record.

In the film sound track version, the mukhda is ‘nange baazoo nangi TAANGE’. However, in the record version, mukhda is ‘nange baazoo nangi RAANEN’. ‘Raanen’ is a Urdu word which means ‘thighs’.

In the lyrics, some other unusual Urdu words have been used as under:

Meyaar= Standard, Measurement

Paash= Sprinkle

Khoo-e-uriyaani= Habit of nakedness

Enjoy the song with Mohammed Rafi intoxicatingly singing ‘beemaar’ in the song.

Today’s song is from the 1974 movie ‘Mehmaan’.

This film was directed by KP Atma for Shatrujit Films, Bombay, and was produced by Shatrujit Paul. It had Biswajeet, Rekha, Anwar Hussain, Manmohan Krishna, Abhi Bhattacharya, Tarun Bose, Sulochana, Mukri, Bhalla, Lata Sinha, Azad, Gopal Sehgal, Indira Bansal, Mona, Brahm Bharadwaj, Helen, Pratima Devi, Thakurdas, and new discovery Joginder (as debutant).

Story and Screenplay of this movie was written by Shatrujit Paul. Its dialogues were written by Rahi Masoom Raza. Editing for this movie was done by Shivaji Avdhoot.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.02.1974.

‘Mehmaan-1974’ had total six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Ravi. Asha Bhonsle, Deedar Singh Pardesi, Mahendra Kapoor, Meenu Puroshottam and Mohd Rafi gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie made its debut on the blog in 2010 with its first song posted on 01.05.2010. After that its second was posted on 26.04.2012.
But the third song was posted after more than five years gap on 25.10.2017.
Its fourth song got posted in ‘blog ten-year challenge’ on 01.05.2020 as the movie completes its ten year long run on the blog.

Then the sixth song was posted this year on Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary. This year is the ‘birth centenary celebration year’ of lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi (born on 08.03.1921 – 25.10.1980). On the blog we achieved seven centuries of Sahir Ludhianvi on 08.03.2021.
He is on 700 on the blog since then. The today’s song will be 701st song of Sahir Ludhianvi on the blog.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chhod arre jaa mujhe na pakad Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 01.05.2020
02 Khuley gagan ke neeche panchhi Minoo Purushottam

06 Meri chaahat rahegi hamesha jawaan Mohd Rafi 26.04.2012

Today’s song is sung by Minoo Purushottam and on screen, I guess, it is Lata Sinha lip syncing the song. (I have not watched this movie, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.).

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Sahir Ludhianvi and music is composed by Ravi.

This is the final song from ‘Mehmaan-1974’ and with this song all songs of ‘Mehmaan-1974’ gets covered on the blog and the movie moves to ‘Yippeeee’ club now. 😊

Hullo Atuldom

“Mehrban” (1967) as spelt in the titles of the movie was an AVM (Madras) production written and directed by A. Bhimsingh. It’s cast was headed by Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Sunil Dutt and had Ramesh Deo, Shyama, Ashim kumar, Jayanthi, Shashikala, Bharathi, Mehmood, Soodesh Kumar and Sulochana Latkar. The dialogues and lyrics were written by Rajinder Kishan and Ravi was the music director. The movie had seven songs of which the blog has the following two.

Song Date of posting
Ae mere dost ae mere hamdam 21 January 2013
Mera gadha gadhon ka leader 9 December 2016

As we can see this movie last made its appearance in 2016 with a wonderful post by Rajaji who was pushed to write by Avinashji. Infact, for the both songs posted, Avinashji was the lyrics contributor.

The 2013 post had a brief synopsis of the movie. It equated the movie to the 1990 David Dhawan directed Rajesh Khanna- Govinda starrer “Swarg”. I happened to see “Mehrbaan” recently and realised that the similarity is limited. Yes, Rajesh Khanna played the rich-man in “Swarg” similar to Ashok Kumar’s character in “Mehrban”. Govinda played the orphan who is devoted to the family similar to Sunil Dutt’s character in “Mehrban”.

The variations in the 1967 movie is that the wealthy couple Shanti Swarup (Ashok Kumar) and Parvati (Sulochana) have three sons and two daughters in addition to being the adoptive parents of Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt). (In “Swarg” the wealthy couple are childess) They also bring in Laxmi (Nutan) whose parents were known to them and who die leaving Laxmi to fend for herself. So, as we can see it is a full house. That gives the story all kinds of good, bad and ugly characters which helps the writer to gives us a three-hour long movie with lots of ‘rona-dhona’ ‘kasam khana and khilana’ etc. i.e. a highly emotional movie. The end is predictable in that all the family members come together and live happily, once again.

Just remembered another variation between “Swarg” and “Mehrban”. In “Swarg” Krishna (Govinda) becomes rich by acting in movies, buys back the property of his ‘sahabji’ (Rajesh Khanna) and teaches the errant brothers a lesson or two before bringing them back to apologise for all the wrongs that they have done. Kanhaiya of ‘Mehrban’ doesn’t wait to earn riches before coming back to set matters right in the adoptive family. Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt) has Laxmi (whom he marries before being sent away from the home by Sulochana) for support whereas Krishna does it with the help of his friend ‘Airport’ (Satish Kaushik).
Also, in ‘Swarg’ Sahabji’s wife dies of shock and in ‘Mehrban’ Shanti Swarup dies leaving his wife to the mercy of his ungrateful children.

‘Swarg’ was said to be a remake of ‘Mehrban’ which itself was a remake from the 1960 Tamil hit ‘Padikkadha Medhai’ (Uneducated Genius) which in turn was a remake of the 1953 Bengali movie ‘Jog Biyog’ which was based on the novel of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. So, that means this story will hold good in any time and age.

We are revisiting this movie today with a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi but (surprise) it is not a romantic song. In fact, the movie doesn’t have any romantic song, in the true sense of the term. There is a Lata Mangeshkar solo which has Nutan pacifying a sad Sunil Dutt. This song relates the story of Shanti Swarup to his grandchildren.

This is one of five movies where Nutan and Sunil Dutt played the lead. As I was looking up the anniversaries tab of the blog I found that the birth-dates of the two were one day apart. I wondered what scenario it would have been, back then, when the shooting of the movies were on. Nutan would have turned 85 on 4th June and Sunil (birth-name Balraj) Dutt would have been 92. Just a passing thought, their sons are actors too and have acted together in a few movies.

Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song, which turns out to be a multiple version song, were sent by Avinash Scrapwala long ago.

ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni

teen bete thhe aankhon ke taare
bade pyaare pyaare

woh thhe raja ke anmol moti

thhe maa ke dula..aa..re
palkon ki chhanv mein guzra tha bachpan

ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni

ek aisa magar din bhi aaya
jisne raja ko nirdhan banaya
ho gaye khaali saare khazaane ae
haaye kaisa ye andher chhaaya

woh jo bete thhe aankhon ke taare
raja rani ke dil sahaare
kaam aise mein woh bhi naa aaye
chhupte phirte the aankhen churaaye

aaram ke saathi kya kya the
jab waqt padha toh koi nahi
dhan daulat ke sab rishtey hai
dhan rooth gaya toh koi nahin
kaun girte ko deta sahaara
woh raja bechaara
thaka aur ha..aa..ra
sochta thha kahaan hai woh moti

ho gaya apna khoon paraaya
ho gaya apna khoon paraaya
kaam magar ek chaakar aaya
ek bhola insaan wahaan thha
bachpan se mehmaan wahaan thha
usne jiske tukde khaaye
sada usi ke paanv dabaaye
un bedardon ki mehfil mein
ek wahi hamdard bacha thha
lekin maalik ko kya deta
bechaare ke paas hi kya thha
bechaare ke paas hi kya thha

apne malik ke kadmon mein ro ro ke
khush hota charan uske dho dho ke
apna tan man nichhavar woh karta raha
ek ishaare pe malik ke marta raha
hai kahaani magar baat kal hi ki hai
na samjhna ise tum pura..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni
ek raja ki sun lo kaha..aa..ni

Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani

Pehle rehte the saagar kinaare
Ab samaaye dilon mein hamaare
Yaad unki rahegi jahaan mein
Jab talak hai ye chaand aur taare
Jo naa mitaaye mitegi kisi se
Chhodi hai aisi nishaani

Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani
Ek raja ki sunlo kahaani

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 4
———————————–————––——————————————–————
Chaudhvin ka chaand ho
Ya aaftaab ho….
Jo bhi ho tum khudaa ki qasam
Lajawaab ho…oo….ooo

This time it is the turn of Music director who is known as the creator of iconic songs, popularly known as Ravi. His association with Rafi sahab begins in 1956-57 with the first film “Ek Saal” with 2 solo songs written by Prem Dhawan. Many of these iconic songs composed by Ravi were sung by Rafi sahab in this long association which ended only with the demise of Rafi Sahab in 1980. I counted 251 songs composed by Ravi in the excel sheet of Rafi sahab songs. Around 200 of these songs are upto late 60’s. In the 70’s Rafi sahab’s output has as it is decreased so it is not surprising that the 70’s decade there are less than 50 songs by the team of Mohammed Rafi-Ravi, with various lyricists.

Starting from 1957, there are around 50 songs upto 1960. So the 60’s decade is the most productive one with around 150 songs. This, despite Ravi being at the peak of his career working extensively with the B.R. Chopra camp. There are clear indications that Ravi preferred to have Rafi sahab sing his songs whenever he was working outside the BR camp, when he had Mahendra Kapoor sing most of his songs.

The very summit of this association is the legendary solo of Chaudhvin ka chaand(1960). The film has 5 Rafi solo numbers, all of them popular songs, all the places that I saw. But the excel sheet is listing one additional song with the words “yehan ke dost ba-wafa”, so there is a possibility of a small snippet of rendition of some poetry maybe lying hidden in the movie. The story really does take off from here with 7 songs in ‘Tu nahin aur Sahi’ (1960). Then comes the sonorous Husn waale tera jawaab nahin in Gharana (1961). With 6 songs in “China Town” 1962, Rafi has become the only male singer for Ravi in all ‘AA’ and ‘AB’ grade movies which had ‘AAA’ grade music. Rafi sahab went on to croon these outstanding solos/duet for Sunil Dutt in the film “Aaj aur kal” (1963) composed by Ravi:

mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main
Ye aadiyaan ye fizaayen bulaa rahi hain tumhen
itni haseen itni jaaan raat kya karen

In 1963 Ravi had Rafi sahab sing 5 songs each in Bharosa, Pyar ka Bandhan and Grihasti, on Mehmood, Guru Dutt, Raj Kumar Johnny Walker and Manoj Kumar. It is most likely that there were no other male playback singers in the credits of these movies too. This is apart from the 7 songs including 4 solos in ‘Pyar Kiya to Darna kya” for Aagha and Shammi Kapoor. 1963 also saw the song Sau baar janam lenge in the film “Ustadon ke Ustaad”.

Here is a list of 4 of the popular and unique, of the 7 Rafi songs in the film “Door ki Aawaaz”:

Song Singers
Ham bhi agar bachche hote Mohd Rafi, Manna Dey, Asha Bhonsle
Husn se chaand bhi sharmaayaa hai Mohd Rafi
Kyaa yoonhi rooth ke jaane ko muhabbat ki thhi Mohd Rafi
Muqaddar aazmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Mohd Rafi

Shakeel Badayuni seems to have formed a newer equation with Ravi post “Chaudhvi ka Chaand” going by the no. of films I am finding in the Rafi list where they worked together.

Rafi-Ravi combination moved on to Shehnai in 1964 with 4 solos and 1 duet, in a Rafi-Asha score, with one melodious solo for Asha Is tarah todaa mera dil .

“Khandaan” 1965 again was again an all-Rafi score with 6 songs, 7th being the iconic Lata solo Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri poojaa tumhi devtaa ho .

I simply must list the iconic solos by Rafi sahab in Do Badan(1966):

Song Singers
Bhari duniyaa mein aakhir dil ko samjhaane kahaan jaayen Mohd Rafi
Is Jahan Se (Verse) Mohd Rafi
Naseeb mein jiske jo likhaa thaa Mohd Rafi
Rahaa gardishon mein hardam Mohd Rafi

There is a bonus in this film also with additional verse “is jahan se’, we can look forward to finding and enjoying.

In 1967, there were ‘Meherbaan’ and “Nai Roshni” followed with “Do Kaliyan” and ‘Neel Kamal’ in 1968. Do I really need to list the songs of ‘Neel Kamal”? I dont think so. “Neel Kamal” atleast had a Manna Dey song on Mehmood Khaali dabba khaali bottle lele mere yaar .

This is 1969 and Ek phool do mali:

Song Singers
Aulaad waalon phoolo phalo Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
Chal chal re naujawaan-parody song Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
O nanhe se farishte Mohd Rafi
Ye parda hata do Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle

They reach early 70’s to create these two meaningful songs:

Song Movie (year) Singers MD Lyricist
Mujhe ishq hai tujhi se meri jaan e zindagaani Ummeed(1971) Mohd Rafi Ravi Shakeel Badayuni
Mere Dost Tujhe Tera Meet Mubarak Dhadkan(1972) Mohd Rafi Ravi Ravi & Ali

We must go back to the early years of Rafi-Ravi association to reach “Mehendi’ 1958. This is a recital by Rafi sahab of a poetry titled ‘Baazaar-e-husn’ by Kaamil Rashid. Ajit is reciting this nazm in the movie on a Kotha, presumably of Umrao Jaan. This movie Mahendi 1958 was based on a novel “Umrao Jaan Ada” (1904) authored by Mirza Hadi Ruswa. The other two movies named “Umrao Jaan’ were based on the same novel. This is an affirmation of the feeling I had, that it must be based on a novel, while watching ‘Umrao Jaan’ 1981.

This recital is another great rendition, without music, reminding me of the rendition of Unhen qissa e gham jo likhne ko baithhe in ‘Naya Qanoon’(1965) and Kya gham jo andheri hain raaten in ‘Barsaat ki raat’ (1960).

In the movie, this recital happens, then the reply by ‘Umrao Jaan’ in Lata Mangehskar’s voice is posted here bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin. The recital on screen is by an actor named Jayshree, whose identity is not clear. I have seen the posted songs of the film to find if this is the veteran Marathi film actress Jayshree Gadkar. The film’s poster by SaReGaMa has Jayshree Gadkar on it. She has been seen in a few hindi films in later years like “Bahaaron ke Sapne’1967. But there is a question mark if it is the same actor in Mehendi(1958). The cast of the film is Jayashree, Ajit, Veena, Kumar, Baalam, Mirza Musharraf, Lalita Pawar, Baby Devika, Adib, Ismail, Prakash, Jago, Maqbool, Krishnakant, Munshi Munakka, Hamid – I, Dinanath, Anwari Bai, Qaisarbai, & Mumtaz Begum.

These four songs of the film are posted in the blog:

Song Date of posting
Apne kiye pe koyi pashemaan ho gayaa 21 december 2009
Bedard zamaana tera dushman hai 26 december 2009
Pyaar ki duniya lutegi hamen maaloom na thhaa 11 may 2012
Bhari mehfil hai ye afsaana nahin 22 may 2012

I had come accross long-time back and all these years I was under the impression that there is this song by Rafi, a recital filmed on Ajit, and it is already posted. Then last month I found this song and saved the link for having it in this series, as it was not posted. For last two weeks, I have not worked on any posts, but it was there on the back of the mind, that some of these wonderful songs are saved in my drafts and I need to get on with it. Finally, yesterday I opened the laptop, with this very song on the mind, and lo, there it was in one of the comments that the recital is not posted.
The question/grievance/complaint is here now, the answer to it was here already.
Editor’s note:-This song is the 500th song from movies of 1958 to appear in the blog.

yeh koochon ki raani
ye bazaar ki manchalon ki jawaani
yeh aashiq mizaajon ki
rangeen kahaani
arey sitam saari duniya pe
dhaaye huye hain
wo aaj apni mehfil mein aaye huye hain
wah wah wah
wah wah wah
