Today, 4th October, is the 88th birthday of Sandhya Mukherjee. The grand old dame is one of the premier playback singers in Bangla cinema. In Hindi films, her contribution is limited to about 30 songs. Her involvement in Hindi films starts with the 1948 film ‘Jhoothi Kasmen’, and her singing assignments are spread over a decade and a half, till the mid 1960s.

A chance encounter with this song prompted the preparation of this post. I came across this song just a few hours ago, and listening to it was love at first hear. Such a lovely melody and arrangement, and such wonderful rendition, this song belongs to that category of unknown and hidden gems, which surprise the listener with their simplicity and beauty. I have listened to it many times since I discovered it earlier in the evening, and I do not seem to be getting enough of it.

The film is ‘Ratnadeep’ from 1952. The film is produced and directed by the legendary Debaki Kumar Bose, for the banner of Chitramaya, Calcutta. The cast of actors is listed as Anuva Gupta, Manju Dey, Molina Devi, Chhaya Devi, Tangamani, Harini, Bakul Ghosh, Abhi Bhattacharya, Pahadi Sanyal, Niteesh Mukherji, Tulsi Chakravarty, Kamal Mishra, Raj Kumar Soni, Sudheer  Chakraborty, Gokul Mukherji, and Gauri Shankar. The film is based on the Bangla novel of the same name, written by Prabhat Kumar Mukherjee.

Eight songs are listed for this film. The music director is Robin Chatterji. Two of the songs are traditional bhajans originally composed by Meerbai and Vidyapati. The remaining six songs have been written by the songwriters Pandit Madhur and Mahendra Pran. However, the lyricist for each individual song is not specifically identified.

We wish Sandhya ji a very happy 88th birthday. May she be blessed with many more years of good health and happiness.

Song – Raat Ne Aa Ke Din Ko Chooma, Saanjh Suhaani Aayi  (Ratnadeep) (1952) Singers – Sandhya Mukherji, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

saanjh suhaani aayi manwa doley

haaye jaagi mast jawaani
duniya ki har ?? suhaani
?? ban karv itraai
tum ban jaao main o saajan
aawo main tum ban jaaun
ye madmaati saanjh salona
ye madmaati saanjh salona
salona sandesa laai
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi

aankhon se tum dil mein aaye
phir bhi rahe kyon praaye
phir bhi rahe kyon praaye
itna to batla do kyon tum
aaj baney harjaai
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi
saanjh suhaani aayi aayi

रात ने आ के
दिन को चूमा
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई
साँझ सुहानी आई मनवा डोले
रात ने आ के
दिन को चूमा
साँझ सुहानी आई

चंदा करे इशारे
कोई मुझे पुकारे
चंदा करे इशारे
क्या जानूँ मैं आज भला क्यों
मन ही मन शरमाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

बालपन के सपने जागे
जागी मस्त जवानी
हाए जागी मस्त जवानी
दुनिया की हर ?? सुहानी
?? बन कर इतराई
तुम बन जाओ मैं ओ साजन
आवो मैं तुम बन जाऊँ
ये मदमाती साँझ सलोना
ये मदमाती साँझ सलोना
सलोना सँदेसा लाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

आँखों से तुम दिल में आए
फिर भी रहे क्यों पराये
फिर भी रहे क्यों पराये
इतना तो बतला दो क्यों तुम
आज बने हरजाई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई
साँझ सुहानी आई आई

“Pehli Shaadi”(1953) was produced by K S Daryani and directed by Ram Daryani for Krishin Productions, Bombay. The movie had Nargis, Bharat Bhushan, Motilal, Gope, Manorama, Gulab, Leela Mishra, Kammo, Chandu etc in it.

The movie had ten songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the blog in the past.

Here is the third song from “Pehli Shaadi”(1953) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Hemant Kumar. D N Madhok is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of this song is available. Seeing that Asha Bhonsle’s voice figured in six out of ten songs of the movie, it would seem that she was the playback singer for the leading lady of the movie, viz. Nargis. So, this song must have been picturised on Nargis.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Mose kahi na jaayegi tose suni na jaayegi(Pehli Shaadi)(1953) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mere gham ki daastaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

nagri nagri dwaare dwaare
ek deewaana ye hi pukaare
nagri nagri dwaare dwaare
ek deewaana ye hi pukaare
in do nainon ke maare
in do nainon ke maare
bechaare ho sajan jaayen kahaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

main majboor mera dil majboor hai
tose main pyaar karoon itna kasoor
mera itna kasoor hai
main majboor mera dil majboor hai
tose main pyaar karoon itna kasoor
tere dar ka jogi ban ke
tere dar ka jogi ban ke
meet mere man ke ho sajan jaaun kahaan
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi
mose kahi na jaayegi
tose suni na jaayegi
mere gham ki daastaan
kaho to karoon bayaan
tose suni na jaayegi

The movie had 8 songs in it which were penned by D N Madhok (7) and Pandit Gaafil (1).

Only the audio of song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aankhen ro ro haar gayin (Majboori)(1954) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-D N Madhok, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

aankhen ro ro haar gayin
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
rote armaanon aao
lag jaao kaleje se mere
jo tumne gharonde baandhe thhe
haaye wo gharonde choor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
jis duniya mein humne laakhon
shauk se phool khilaaye thhe
ek bujhe dil ko lekar
hum us duniya se door huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin
armaan tadap kar choor huye
aise mein dil thhaam ke hum
haan kehne par majboor huye
aankhen ro ro haar gayin

“Raaj Laxmi”(1945) was Premendra Mitra for M P Productions, Calcutta. The movie had Kanan Devi, Chhabi Vishwas, Natwar, Jahar, Poornima, Tandon, Ifthikhar Ahmad, Rai Mohan, Puri, Talat Mehmood etc.

The movie had seven songs in it. HFGK mentions eight songs but the eighth song is a private song.

One song from the movie has been covered in the past. Here is the second song from the movie to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Kanan Devi. Suresh Chaudhary is the lyricist. The movie had two music directors, but the distribution of songs among them is not known.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is clear that the song was picturised on Kanan Devi herself.

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


Song-Main sharmaayi kyun sharmaayi (Raaj Laxmi)(1945) Singer-Kanan Devi, Lyrics-Suresh Chaudhary, MD-Robin Chatterji, Dhiren Ghosh

Lyrics

Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi
Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi
jab paas thhe wo
main door rahi
kyon door rahi

ab chale gaye ae ae
man le ke gaye
o man le ke gaye
main pachhtaayee
kyun door rahi
Main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi

haan aan aan
ruki ghaat par
jab thhi naiyya
mujhe bulaaye ae
na wo khewaiyya
haan aan aan aan aan
wo chale gaye
main kyun na gayi
kyun door rahi

ujad gayi aasha ki bagiya
chhaayi ab sapnon pe duniya(?) aa aa
ujad gayi aasha ki bagiya
chhaayi ab sapnon pe duniya(?)
guzre dinon ki saari kahaani
guzre dinon ki saari kahaani
aansuon mein doob gayi
main door rahi
main sharmaayi
kyun sharmaayi

“Shobha”(1954) was directed by Niren Lahiri for S B Productions, Bombay. The movie had Usha Kiran, Abhi Bhattacharya, Chhabi Biswas, Manju De, Shikha Bagh, Purnendu Mukherji, Rani Bannerji, Rekha Chatterji, Trilochan Jha etc in it.

This movie was based on a story written by Sharat Chandra Chattopadhyay. The movie was also simultaneously made in Bangla as “Shubhada”. That explains the predominance of Bangla artists in the making of this movie.

“Shobha”(1954) had eight songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Shobha”(1954) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Talat Mehmood. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Chatterji.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. My guess is that this song was picturised on Abhi Bhattacharya.

This song is an archtypical Talat Mehmood song. I suppose listening to a Talat Mehmood song those days (even today) may have been akin to watching Vijay Merchant bat. 🙂 Serene unhurried batting. Perfect forward defence, occasional singles, and some delicately placed boundaries on some rare occasions. No agricultural shots whatsoever. 🙂


Song-Mohabbat na hoti zamaana na hota (Shobha)(1954) Singer-Talat Mehmood, Lyrics-Kaif Irfani, MD-Robin Chatterji

Lyrics

mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
na hum aahen bharte
na wo aahen bharte
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
agar darmiyaan ye zamaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli
kahaan ae falak tu u giraata ye bijli ee
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
hamaara agar aashiyaana na hota
mohabbat na hoti
zamaana na hota
tadapne ka koi
bahaana na hota
bahaana na hota

A voice, that is as soft and pleasing as cool breeze. And a singing that is most natural, with no efforts for any artificial embellishments to the rendition.  A voice that is not formally trained. And yet, this voice and the persona behind it, have become synonymous with being the first lady of Bangla cinema.

Remembering Kaanan Devi on her remembrance day. She passed away this day (17th July) in 1992.

In the year 2014 I had done a series called “Chaandni Raaten”. The series remained sort of incomplete, and now it is too far back to restart it. As is my practice, I give a list of all songs featuring in a particular series in the last song post, even that remained to be done. I had planned to post a few more songs, which were suggested and were suitable to the theme. But that was not to be. So I am posting here one of those songs as a closure. This song was found for me by one of the regular visitors to the blog ‘ blufire ji’, as I was looking for a Talat Mehmood song for the series.
