Shamshad Begum, a name too familiar to music lovers of the golden era was born on this day 100 years ago (on 14 april 1919). Her voice, much distinct from all others had that metallic as well as melodious touch which brought her fame from all over the country.

April 14 did ring a bell, but I was not very much aware that it was her birth centenary this year. A comment from one of the regulars Partha Chanda ji on the anniversary pages was enough for me to get this post going.

As I have said earlier, the expectations of music lovers from this blog continues to grow. Music lovers are aware that probably nothing new may be written about such great artists, but they know that this is one of the few places on the internet, where legends are often celebrated and discussed. Apart from hearing these golden compositions and voices, reading about other people’s views and appreciations especially of our favourites has become an enthusiastic habit.

Since, I got to get this post really fast, I would only like to restrict my views on a composer collaboration of Shamshad Begum, which I have no hesitation in considering as the best. Shamshad Begum sang many songs for almost all the composers of her era. Her singing to a few of such composers made her songs ever more popular. So popular that to this day some of these songs are re-mixed and enjoyed by a different class of people. However, it’s my personal opinion that the very songs which made her more popular with these composers were responsible for her fading away from the playback scene. It’s because she sort of got trapped with these special group songs and the more serious songs meant for the lead actresses went to Lata. I would love to write more elaborately on this subject and my views on it some other time.

Avid music lovers can easily understand which composers I am referring to in the above para, but in this post I would like to talk about her playback for composer Naushad Ali.

I mean no discredit to other great composers like Anil Biswas, Ghulam Haider and Ghulam Mohammed etc. for whom Shamshad Begum sang some really good songs.

Naushad saab, created gold with every singer who sang for him and Shamshad Begum was no exception. Shahjehan, Dard, Anokhi Ada, Mela, Andaz, Chandni Raat, Dulari, Babul, Deedar, Jadoo, etc. stand tall in some of the best creations of Naushad’s career. And, Shamshad Begum was associated in a big way in the songs of all these films.

AK ji’s blog has very elaborate post on her songs with Naushad. Yours truly, in fact has the first comment on the post.
Talking about a few of these films, Shahjehan, the first film of the combo had very interesting numbers by Shamshad Begum. Dard was always a Suraiya, Munawar Sultana film, but Shamshad Begum carves a special place for herself with two great songs. Ye afsana nahi zaalim mere dil ki haqeeqat hai is my all time personal favourite.

Mela and Anokhi Ada will always remain special to me for the Mukesh connection. Just listen to Shamshad Begum singing …..ooooooo……. in Mohan ki muraliya baaje from Mela. I think the rendering cannot be appreciated with mere words. The effortless and elegant way with which the solo is sung makes me dumbstruck to this day.

I have fond memories of songs from Chandni Raat. During the good old cassette era, my parents and obviously I had not heard songs from this film quite too often. On a visit to Bombay, I had carried back this cassette. On playing at home, the songs from the film and especially the wonderful duets with Rafi saab became instant craze and are heard to this day.

Babul, Deedar etc, will also be remembered for the contrasting voices of Lata-Shamshad in duet songs and elegant composition by Naushad saab.
It would not be out of place or wrong to say that she was sort of side-casted in favour of Lata, but even in the latter films of Naushad whenever she rendered the odd songs or supported in duets, the class and elegance remained.

Writing about her last days in her singing career will yield nothing. The metallic and melodious voice with crystal clear diction will remain ringing in our ears for decades to come.

On her birth centenary, I pay my humble tributes to Shamshad Begum and would like to represent a song from Aadmi (1957)

ho o o o
chhup chhup ke re chupke chupke
chhup chhup ke re chupke chupke
yaad aayi
chhup chhup ke re chupke chupke
yaad aayi

haay dil dhadka
aankh lajaai

“Chaar Paise”(1955) was produced and directed by N K Ziri for National Movies, Bombay. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Shyama, Johnny Walker, Agha, Kammo, Nishi, Nazir Kashmiri etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs from the movie have been covered in the past. Here are the details of the five songs that have already figured:-

As noted in the past, “Chaar Paise”(1955) was not released, still the prints of the movie are available. The video of the songs of the movie are also available.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Chaar Paise”(1955) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Lata. Sartaj Rahmani is the lyricist. Music is composed by B D Burman.

Picturisation shows that it is a roothhna-manaana song with roles reversed. Here Kishore Kumar is sulking and the lady is trying her best to appease Kishore Kumar, with her singing accompanied by dancing, of course.

The lady is not Shyama, so going by the cast, I guess her to be Nishi. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her.

It is a delightful sulking-appeasing song, and if I understand the mechanism of such songs correctly that Kishore Kumar would respond favourably by the time the song ends. 🙂

With this song, “Chaar Paise”(1955) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Shamma parwaana shamma parwaana (Chaar Paise)(1955) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sartaj Rahmani, MD-B D Burman

Lyrics

shamma parwaana
shamma parwaana
ho
shamma parwaana aa
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana
shamma parwaana
ho shamma parwaana aa
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana

dil ki lagi jab aag lagaaye
tan man sab jal jaaye ae
tan man sab jal jaaye
dil ki lagi jab aag lagaaye
tan man sab jal jaaye
raakh to saari mehfil dekhe
raaz na koi paaye
raaz na koi paaye
duniya mein hai paagal premi
duniya se begaana
ek deewaani ee
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana

jiska saajan roothh gaya ho
aakar prem dwaare
aakar prem dwaare
jiska saajan roothh gaya ho
aakar prem dwaare
vo dukhiyaari preet ki maari
ro ro rain guzaare
ro ro rain guzaare
roz sunaaya jaata hai
ye dard bhara afsaana aa
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana

khel samajh kar prem se khele
duniya phir pachhtaaye ae
duniya phir pachhtaaye
khel samajh kar prem se khele
duniya phir pachhtaaye
khel nahin ye prem hai pagle
jaan bhi ismein jaaye
jaan bhi ismein jaaye
donon mohabbat karne waale
dete hain nazraana
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana
shamma parwaana
ho
shamma parwaana aa
ek deewaani
ek deewaana
shamma parwaana

“Chaar Paise”(1955) was produced and directed by N K Ziri for National Movies, Bombay. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Shyama, Johnny Walker, Agha, Kammo, Nishi, Nazir Kashmiri etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

It is interesting to note (as recounted by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia) that this movie was never released. Still, its prints are available and have been uploaded online. So we can see the picturisation of the songs of the movie.

Here is the fifth song from “Chaar Paise”(1955) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sartaj Rahmani is the lyricist. Music is composed by B D Burman.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Sheila VazKammo. Those present in the club include Kishore Kumar and Shyama, among others.

This song can be described as one of the earlier “club” dance songs in Hindi movies.


Song-Dil hai nishaana nainon ke teer ka (Chaar Paise)(1955) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics- Sartaj Rahmani, MD-B D Burman

Lyrics

dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka
thokar na khaana baabu ji
o bhole bhaale
dil ko bachaana baabu ji
o dil waale
dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka

dil ki lagi ka sun afsaana
shamma ki lau par hai parwaana
chhed nazar se koi taraana
pyaar mein de de dil nazraana
mausam suhaana baabu ji
o bhole bhaale
rangeen zamaan baabu ji
o dil waale
dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka

pyaar bhara dil
aur ye jawaani
ek hai raaja
ek hai raani
donon ki hai ek kahaani
ye bhi deewaana
vo bhi deewaani
hosh mein aana baabu ji
o bhole bhaale
phir na pachhtaana baabu ji
o dil waale
dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka

nayi bahaaren
naye nazaare
kitne haseen hain
kitne pyaare
tod na dena dil ke sahaare
hum hai tumhaare
tum ho humaare
dil hai deewaana baabu ji
o bhole bhaale
isko samjhaana baabu ji
o dil waale
dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka
thokar na khaana baabu ji
o bhole bhaale
dil ko bachaana baabu ji
o dil waale
dil hai nishaana
nainon ke teer ka
waar bachaana ji
nainon ke teer ka
