A couple of months’ back, I had come across a Hindi song ‘ruke ruke se kadam’ from a Bangla film, ‘Laal Pathore’ (1964) sung by Mubarak Begum under the music direction of Salil Chowdhury. I could not locate the picturised version of the song. The tune of the song gives me an impression that it is picturised as a mujra song. While it was a new song for me, the ‘mukhda’ of the song sounded familiar to me. Oh! Yes. It was the more famous song, ruke ruke se kadam from ‘Mausam’ (1975) sung by Lata Mangeshkar under the music direction of Madan Mohan. Both the songs have almost the same lyrics which are accredited to Gulzar. So, it is one song, composed in two tunes by two different music directors, depicting two different emotions.

There is a section of the Hindi film music lovers who feels that credit for both the songs should go to Mirza Ghalib as he had originally written this ghazal which Gulzar has merely changed a few words to give an easy understanding of the original words. So, I decided to make a reality check by comparing the original ghazal written by Mirza Gahlib and the versions written by Gulzar for both the films mentioned above.

The original ghazal written by Mirza Ghalib has five she’rs. The ghazal written by Gulzar for the Bangla film ‘Laal Pathore’ (1964) has four she’rs and that for ‘Mausam’ (1975) has three she’rs. Let us compare the she’rs of all the three versions of the ghazal in a tabular form for easy verification as to whether the ‘allegation’ on Gulzar has substance or not.

Original ghazal by Mirza Ghalib Gulzar’s version of the ghazal – ‘Laal Pathore’ (1964) Gulzar’s version of the ghazal – ‘Mausam’ (1975)
Ruke ruke se kadam
ruk ke baar baar chale.

Qaraar de ke tere dar se beqaraar chale.

Ruke ruke se kadam
mud ke baar baar chale.

Qaraar le ke tere dar se beqaraar chale.

Ruke ruke se kadam
ruk ke baar baar chale.

Qaraar le ke tere dar se beqaraar chale

Uthaaye phirte thhe ehsaan jism kaa jaan par.

Chale jahaan se to
ye pairahan uttaar chale.

Uthaaye phirte thhe ehsaan dil kaa seene par.

Tumhaare kadmon mein
ye karz bhi
utaar chale

Uthaaye phirte thhe ehsaan dil kaa seene par.

Le tere kadmon mein
ye karz bhi
utaar chale

Na jaane kaun si mitti watan ki mitti thhi.

Nazar mein dhool jigar mein liye ghubaar chale.

[Not used] [Not used]
Sahar naa aayi kayi baar neend se jaage.

Thhi raat raat ki ye zindagi guzaar chale.

Sahar naa aayi kayi baar aaftaab aaya.

Ham intezaar mein ye raat bhi guzaar chale.

Subah naa aayi kayi baar neend se jaage.

ki ek raat ki ye zindagi guzaar chale

Mili hai shama se ye rasm-e-aashiqui hamko.

Gunaah haath pe le kar gunaahgaar chale.

Shama se seekhi hai ye rasm-e-aashiqui hamne.

Gunaah haath pe le kar gunaahgaar chale.

[Not used]

Note: Bold words indicate changes from the original she’rs.

It will be observed from the above table that Gulzar has made only some cosmetic changes in the original ghazal written by Mirza Ghalib which has been used in the two films mentioned above. Hence, the credit for the two ghazals used in the films should have rightly gone to Mirza Ghalib. I am aware that Gulzar is a great fan of Mirza Ghalib and he had used Mirza Ghalib’s she’rs in a couple of his other songs including dil dhoondhta hai phir wahi fursat ke raat din. So, I thought that he may have given due credit to Mirza Ghalib in his film ‘Mausam’ (1975) for his inspirations. But in the credit title of the film in DVD version, there is no acknowledgement to Mirza Ghalib.

Coming back to the song ‘ruke ruke se kadam mud ke baar baar chale’ from the Bangla film, ‘Laal Pathore’ (1964), as mentioned earlier, this song is not available in the DVD version of the film. I feel that this mujra song may have been partially used in the film. But the full song is available on the record version which was issued by Saregama (then HMV). There is another Hindi song in the film, ‘saans ke zakhm bhar raha hai koi’ written by Gulzar and sung by Manna Dey which is partially used in the film.

‘Laal Pathore’ (1964, Bangla) in which Uttam Kumar, Supriya Devi (Chaudhury) and Srabani Basu acted in main roles was later made in Hindi as ‘Laal Pathar’ (1971) with corresponding roles for Rajkumar, Hema Malini and Rakhi. Both the versions were directed by Sushil Majumdar. While Salil Chowdhury composed the music for Bangla version, Shankar-Jaikishan composed the music for Hindi version.

I was enthralled with the Ghazal King Madan Mohan’s version of the ghazal, ‘ruke ruke se kadam’ from ‘Mausam’ (1975)’ Let us now enjoy Salil Chowdhury’s version of the same ghazal in a different setting.

Lastly, let us also give credit to Mirza Ghalib for the lyrics of both the version of the ghazal along with Gulzar.

Here is the fourth and final song from the movie. This song is sung by.Manna Dey. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

The song shown the actor (the video is not clear but I guess it is Rakesh Pandey) going through various places playing his baaja. The song appears a half hearted and hasty attempt of the part of the creators. It lacks the usual enthusiasm that one finds behind the creation of most popular songs. Little wonder then that the song failed to get popular.

With this song, “Sangat”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Chal bhai chal (Sangat)(1975) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

Only the audio of this song is available, and so it is difficult to tell how and on whom this song is picturised. I guess that the song is picturised on Rakesh Pandey. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dekhte dekhte ek dhuaan chha gaya (Sangat)(1975) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

dekhte dekhte ek dhuaan chha gaya
ye zameen kho gayi
aasmaan kho gaya
jaane kya ho gaya
dekhte dekhte ek dhuaan chha gaya
ye zameen kho gayi
aasmaan kho gaya
jaane kya ho gaya
dekhte dekhte

ek kya sab nazaare pighalne lage
jaagte khwaab aankhon mein jalne lage ae
koi saanson mein
koi saanson mein
ek dard sa bo gaya
jaane kya ho gaya
dekhte dekhte

koi bahti nadi rooh mein thham gayi
barf banke labon par sada jam gayi ee
geet jaaga magar
geet jaaga magar
jaag kar so gaya aa
jaane kya ho gaya

Different countries have their own Children’s day. For India, 14 november is celebrated as Children’s day. So today(14 november 2016) is Children’s day in India.

We have discussed quite a few Children’s songs in this blog during Children’s day as well on other days. One would like to think that there are not too many songs in Hindi movies that can be described as children’s songs.

Guess what ! I came across a fantastic children’s songs a few months ago. I earmarked it to be discussed on the next children’s day, which happens to be today.
